Protectors of the little people, indeed….

As someone that lives in a blue state and has seen the hypocrisy of the collectivist that pretend to do the shit they do to protect the little people from the “evil Korporashuns and their desire to actually serve shareholders over acting as bank accounts for social justice warriors” and the “evil wealthy that never pay enough taxes”, I am not surprised to find out that the truth is quite differentRead more

No bad news for the demcorats until after the election…

The sycophants in the media, in order to protect the democrats and this criminal administration in particular, are also holding off on a lot of information that would be detrimental to the collectivist powers that be. Picking a replacement for that criminal Eric Holder? Not until after the election. The Secret Service scandals? Not until after the election. The whole Ebola disaster that’s unwinding right now as the CDC crashes & burns and the powers … Read more

We want to limit your stinking data!

If you own any kind of mobile device, you know that service providers are trying real hard to cap data usage even when you are fine paying their exorbitant prices, and basically claim that’s needed because it affects their infrastructure negatively. While some might actually think this makes sense, hard analysis says otherwise:

I won’t argue that data caps have no positive impact on wireless networks—they can prevent the most egregious overuse of what

There must be an election soon

And it looks like, just as we saw in 2012, the crooks in government beholden to the crime syndicate in DC, are cooking the books again. The unemployment numbers, especially the decline we are being told has happened recently, are bullshit. Things are just as bad, if not worse, than when the social engineering scheme the collectivists straddled us with – the one that encouraged the lending industry to give money to unqualified … Read more

I blame Boosh!

Because that seems to always be the battle cry of these morons on the left who can’t see the reason stuff like this happens is their policies and the implementation of said policies. Case in point revelations like One in five U.S. workers was laid off in the past five years and about 22% of those who lost their jobs still haven’t found another one, which shows you what happens whenever government assumes the … Read more

Monday Roundup

For reasons that I hope I’ll explain one day, this week is going to be a bit crazy. So here are a few stories I’ve been sitting on, awaiting longer commentary:

A few weeks ago, Marvel comics unveiled an alternative Spiderwoman cover which was immediately decried as sexist because of her pose. I suspected that this criticism was largely coming from people who weren’t terribly familiar with the medium. And indeed, Maddox easily found a … Read more

Even about this they lied..

It looks like that Obamacare “built in” cushion that was supposed to protect those not making so much from getting raked over the coals by a government mandate they purchase healthcare, whether they could afford it or not, isn’t as reliable as the donkeys that sold it made it out to be. In fact, if you look at the new speculative numbers as shown below:

A significant benefit of the Affordable Care Act is

We’re #3!

Well, friends, I think we can finally give our government some credit. After decades of effort, we are finally one of the top nations in the world in something. In fact, we’re the third best. Only France and Portugal are better. With a huge bipartisan effort and some fantastic leadership from President Obama, the United States is now third in tax shittiness:

If American businesses have begun looking for opportunities to relocate their corporate

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
