If you doubted the IRS scandal was real and that Obama and the democrats actually used the most feared, powerful, and dangerous US agency to target their political opposition, I have some more news for you. If you doubted that the NSA and the FBI were spying on us all and passing on information to the Obama administration and democrats to target their political enemies, I got some more news for you. If you … Read more
In between encomiums Of Hillary, Time Magazine (soon to follow Newsweek) tries to cast a wider net and write stuff with a more general appeal. This week they came up with a little “ideology” quiz, a test where answering non political personality questions can reveal political leanings. Take the test first before you read further.
All done? Good, now we can all laugh at their gross generalities and biases.
My score was 80% conservative. I’m … Read more
Two political flashpoints have erupted in the last few days. The first is in the Ukraine, where the President launched a violent assault on protesters, resulting in at least 26 people being killed and probably over a thousand injured. A truce might be coming into place. The second, to one’s surprise, is Venezuela, where Chavez’s heirs are arresting opposition leaders, beating protesters and silencing the press. Tonight there are reports of murder … Read more
A President of firsts, nearly all of them bad.
The desperation witnessed by this second termer, his personal vision gone off the rails, an intractable Congress road blocking his agenda, and posterity whispering in his ear ,”What have you done for me lately?”, it is full court press time. Threats of executive orders and end runs round Congress have only been received by raised eyebrows, but little fealty. So another tactic has been adopted, harnessing … Read more

Raising the U.S. minimum wage would lead to the loss of about half a million jobs by late 2016 but lift almost a
Or something. Yeah, sure. What do you ask am I talking about? Well, the left’s recent realization that carrying a shit-ton of student debt will prevent you from buying a home. Now the left limits it to first time home buyers, but it applies to any homebuyer at all: if you have a student debt that is as big as a mortgage you have shown you are not a reliable debtor to most sane … Read more
Today marks the 5th anniversary of the Porculus bill that the left told us would solve all the problems causes by evil Boosh dropping taxes and starting all the wars they were for before they were against them. I suspect the LSM will not bring this up, because frankly, things look bleaker, if anything, today then they did then. And we only pissed away some $6 trillion to get here. No problem they don’t think … Read more
The Koch Brothers are the greatest threat to our American way of life that has ever existed. They pour millions into political campaigns to support libertarian causes (libertarianism, of course, being the root of all true evil). They dominate our election cycle. Everything that has gone wrong for the last hundred years is their fault. Why, they probably …
… wait, what?

OpenSecrets.org tallied the top donors in federal elections between 1989 and 2014.
President’s day weekend, off to the mall. For those outside the contiguous 48, we don’t use this useless holiday to celebrate any presidents, it is used primarily to run up the charge card.
Groupon, an internet company that gives discounts to consumers that go on their website to purchase items, has decided to get into the spirit and singled out one president to be the face of their sale.
