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

The Obama economy

If you doubt that the things the left does and claims to do to help us are having the exact opposite result, check out ZeroHedge’s post. In one month the country lost 523K full time jobs, which were replaced with almost 800K part time jobs. Do I need to mention what signature Obama progressive policies are behind this shift, or is it sinking in for people that think if government says it is free, … Read more

The Book No One is Reading

Quick shot before today’s longer post: we have a new champion for the book that everyone buys and no one reads. Three guesses as to what it is and the last two don’t count.… Read more

It was a mistake! – just like the Learner IRS emails being eaten by her dog.. (UPDATED)

Make what you want of this – I know exactly what it means to me, but then again, I am not a cultists blinded by faith in AGW, and what it should mean to people that respect the scientific process – but if you suspect something is rotten in Denmark, you are on the right track.

According to NOAA’s National Climatic Data Center in 2012, the “average temperature for the contiguous U.S. during July

Another myth about “The Party of the Little People” getting busted?

And it is about time. People are wizening to the fact the people ripping them off the hardest are those that have been claiming, for decades, to be on their side and they are not happy. It is not a mistake that when progressives grab power, the policies they put into place to redress the wrongs they constantly harp about, actually do the exact opposite of what they tell everyone they want to do. … Read more

Obamanomics On the March

The economy contracted almost three percent in the first quarter, the worst quarter since the end of the Great Recession. Maybe it’s a blip, but that is a scary number. I’m sure the Obama defenders will blame it on the cold weather but I’m pretty sure we had cold weather in the past. Eventually, this will be Bush’s fault. Or “austerity”.

This is horrible news, whatever your politics. While I oppose Obama, I want the … Read more

I couldn’t come up with a better parody than the real thing does

Can’t pass on pointing out where progressivism always leads to, and never disappointing, is news about the once great city of Detroit. Seems the problem there is that people on the dole not being able to pay their water bills, and the UN apparently will have to step in (not kidding):

DETROIT (WWJ) – It’s a basic human right: water. But could the United Nations soon help the Detroit Water and Sewerage Department provide

It matters all the time you idiots!

I see that even the NYT is forced to admit that not every higher education field of study provides the same earning potential, albeit, the author prefixes this indubitable fact with the excuse that somehow it only matters in times of a recession. That’s bullshit. No, not the admission that degrees ins some fields are worth far more than others , but that this only happens to be the case during a recession.

Let’s … Read more

Progressives and their money…

I have always held the belief that today’s modern left is simply a modern day version of the old and corrupt aristocratic members of the feudal or guild systems of the middle ages – entities that closely guarded access to the benefits that membership provided, while lording it over everyone – and amounts to nothing but a protection racket for the connected. The progressive oligarchy smartened up however, knowing that simply doing business as usual, … Read more

Seriously? This is news how?

Gallup has a poll/study titled “In U.S., Depression Rates Higher for Long-Term Unemployed” which makes the claim that “Mental health poorest among those jobless for six months or more” as seen here:

WASHINGTON, D.C. — The longer that Americans are unemployed, the more likely they are to report signs of poor psychological well-being. About one in five Americans who have been unemployed for a year or more say they currently have or are
