As if you needed more proof….

Leftists always love to posture. They feel good letting everybody know how awesome they are. They care for the poor, the needy, the oppressed, the downtrodden, the unlucky, the little guy. They know what’s best and they want to help, and they will let anyone that gets in their way have it. And when you are dealing with leftists run counties, the hubris and narcissism takes new meaning. That is, until it hits them in … Read more

If we can’t outright disolve it, this works

It looks like many others are figuring out that the checks and balances of our constitutional republic have been broken down by the rise of the nanny state, and in particular, the problems that this new fourth power branch – the unelected and unaccountable government bureaucrat – cause to our rights and freedoms are being shown by the abuse of power rampant through the Obama administration. In particular, we have the most powerful entity in … 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

The liberal solution: take 125537899

In the people’s great city of Detroit, where credentialed liberal ideologues have been running the show for more than 6 decades, things have not been going so well. OK, I am fucking around when I act sarcastic like this. Detroit is a disaster of epic proportions. The left created an unsustainable model that robbed the tax payers and incentivized business to move elsewhere, while the elected officials pissed away any and all prosperity. So now … Read more

Killing the goose that laid the golden egg

Over at the Hoover Institution journal, they have a damning article, appropriately titled “The United States of Envy”, where they give us a clear picture of the left’s strategy for the coming election:

In advance of the 2014 election, the Obama administration has drawn the political discussion away from its unpopular and flawed healthcare plan, usually called Obamacare, to bring public attention and support for increased income redistribution. President Obama openly encouraged envy

When I say this model is unsustainable..

It is because of facts like the following:

Buried deep on the website of the U.S. Census Bureau is a number every American citizen, and especially those entrusted with public office, should know. It is 86,429,000.

That is the number of Americans who in 2012 got up every morning and went to work — in the private sector — and did it week after week after week.

In 2012, according to the Census

Paper dragon revisited

The other day I had a post up about the dysmal state of affairs in China titled “Can’t hide bad news forever” and why the attempts to hide these things will eventually fail anyway, and it looks like there is another article showing
more of the same:

Measuring a nation’s military capabilities is more than counting troops, weapons and GDP. There’s also the human factor. In that area China is running into

Can’t hide bad news forever…

Looks like the paper dragon is about to get some serious pain, as the Chinese economy no longer can hide the crap it was doing to pretend to have annual double digit growth. Too many Chinese firms are overextended and can’t repay their debt, so the Chinese government, whom had been playing games for decades to keep them up and running despite the fact they should have gone belly up, no longer has the … Read more

Can’t say I am surprised

I have dealt with plenty of libs that have made the argument that stupid rednecks vote against their own interests when they don’t vote for nanny state democrats, the assumption being that nanny state democrats and their massive vote buying scheme is something that benefits people the left feels are too stupid to do things on their own. And you bet that rednecks, along with minorities, are all seen as people that can’t do anything … Read more

You have got your facts wrong buddy

Peter Hatcher at “The Sidney Morning Herald” has an editorial post titled Poll shock as Swiss vote to slam the door shut dealing with the recent vote in Switzerland to curtail immigration.

So it seemed unlikely the Swiss would vote to put new limits on their country’s immigration intake in the referendum held at the weekend. The opinion polls concurred – surveys showed most Swiss opposed the idea of putting a cap on annual immigration
