Quit Wining

What have I always said about over-regulation? Big business loves over-regulation because it crushes small businesses. To wit:

A small-time vintner’s use of volunteer workers has put him out of business after the state squeezed him like a late-summer grape for $115,000 in fines — and sent a chill through the wine industry.

The volunteers, some of them learning to make wine while helping out, were illegally unpaid laborers, and Westover Winery should have

The costliest war the left stuck us with

Is without a doubt the war on poverty. And like every war the left has been involved with since WW2, it has been a miserable loss for America and the American tax payer. From the article:

Today, the U.S. Census Bureau will release its annual report on poverty. This report is noteworthy because this year marks the 50th anniversary of President Lyndon Johnson’s launch of the War on Poverty. Liberals claim that the War

Obamacare not free, and kills jobs – rehash

Those of us that pointed out Obamacare was going to hit everyone, but especially small businesses, hard in the pocketbook, but then also kill jobs, should feel a measure of vindication now that the LSM has been forced to admit that the truth is Obamacare has killed a lot of small business jobs and sucked big money out of the economy, but there is no joy in this information making the light of day … Read more

What progressivism – Social Justice, in a nut shell – always ends up being.

Venezuela is the latest example of what progressivism works out to be in a nutshell. Chavez, another idiot that gained power passing himself off as a man of the people, and buying votes by promising to rob his country’s producers in the name of some fabricated and idiotic social construct, has ruined what once was a growing and thriving economy. Sure Venezuela had problems and poverty before Chavez, but things are far, far worse, today. … Read more

Home of the Whopper

So this is happening:

Burger King may be the home of the Whopper, but Canada may be the new home of Burger King.

The restaurant operator said on Sunday that it was in talks to buy Tim Hortons, the Canadian doughnut-and-coffee chain, in a potential deal that would create one of the world’s biggest fast-food businesses.

If completed, the deal would mean Burger King’s corporate headquarters would move to Canada, raising the specter of yet

Why tell little lies when you can get away with big ones?

While I will admit that anyone making the case that there is plenty of competition for all the lying done by this WH, the argument can be made that the ludicrous claim they are transparent in their dealings and want an independent press can be seen as taking the cake. With so many key Obama people, all under investigation, destroying subpoenaed evidence, or the history of Obamacare and the lies and vote buying that … Read more

This “IS” how collectivism always plays out, idiots…

Surprisingly, in a parody I think most leftist, including the people at the WaPo, will miss, they have an article titled “Rare diary gives details of life under Khmer Rouge“, which describes the beautiful agrarian revolution brought to Cambodia by the Khmer Rouge. From the article:

Nearly 40 years ago, hunched on the floor of the wood-and-leaf hut he was forced to live in away from his children, Cambodian school inspector Poch Younly

This is happening by design

You would think that the morons at the LA Times, considering how blatant the evidence is to make the point, would realize that the revelation that 40% of American households are under financial stress, actually is a repudiation of the “social justice” agenda. Instead they are arguing that the cure for this distress is more of the very policies and practices that cause the harm. For these collectivist twits there is no economic malaise … Read more

Spin debunked.

Today’s big headline is that “Dow drops 200-plus points; stocks negative for July“, which coming on the heels of the almost surely to be found out as bunk revelation by the desperate Donkey mouthpiece of former fame and glory claiming for the umpteenth time that the economic recovery is here, should make you wonder.

Scuttlebutt I heard is that when you really break down that 4% growth the NYT claims happened you … Read more

What would the crack addict say?

Who would be surprised that when asked what the best solution to his drug problem would be, a crack addict would say the answer wasn’t to get into drug rehab, but to get more crack to smoke? Similarly, who would be surprised to find that when progressive shitbags get asked how to fix the massive deficit spending by the Obama administration their answer wouldn’t be to get spending under control, but that people already fleeced … Read more
