Obama as Anti-American

Edward Cline sent a letter to Charles Krauthammer at the Washington Post, to nudge Krauthammer in the direction of calling Obama out morally and not just practically. In his usual well-written and –reasoned style, Cline identified in the letter Obama’s essential nature: Obama is the vengeance dream of every anti-American “radical” who ever demonstrated against […]

Jeremiah Wright – Obama’s Spiritual Father Speaks

It’s been awhile since this blog has been updated. That’s not been on purpose, and the story behind the delay might be interesting to some (it’s a story about the housing and financial crisis, on a very micro scale), but it’s not been decided whether it’s actually worth a post. What is worth it, though, […]

Naked Government Extortion – AIG Bonuses Not Returned Voluntarily

There’s government extortion of the garden, tax-and-spend variety. And then, there’s government extortion of the naked variety: AIG Bonuses: Surrendered Under Pressure?: An email from the head of a controversial unit at AIG suggests employees who gave up their bonuses did not do so voluntarily, but feared their names would be released if they did […]

Resignation Letter from “Evil” AIG Executive

Congress and the Obama Administration simply must have known the nature of the AIG contracts, bonuses, employee status, etc., and so when they stirred up populist hatred against hardworking people, they were guilty of terrible moral–and probably legal-crimes. It’s simply unfathomable to any rational person that the political leaders of a nation of laws (not […]

GOP Negates Perhaps the Best Thing Rush Limbaugh Has Ever Said

It’s pathetic and discouraging that the GOP won’t stand behind Rush Limbaugh (not my favorite guy) when he says: “What is so strange about being honest and saying I want Barack Obama to fail if his mission is to restructure and reform this country so that capitalism and individual liberty are not its foundations?” That’s […]

Shocker: Americans Lack Confidence in Economy

How could it be any different, when the Anointed One has proclaimed far and wide that we’re in a crisis that requires unprecedented government intervention into the economy and our lives: Glum and glummer. That’s how US consumers feel in the midst of worsening economic conditions and little hope that the situation will rebound, according […]

The GOP is Screwed, and So Are We

Here’s a prime example of why the Republicans lost the election, and can’t hope to win anything back anytime soon: Nationalization: Is It the Only Answer to Save Banks?: A year ago, it would have been unthinkable: Sen. Lindsey Graham advocating a government takeover of private banks — but that is exactly what he suggested […]

Are We Really All Socialists Now? Newsweek Seems to Think So

I missed this Newsweek article, somehow: We Are All Socialists Now: The interview was nearly over. on the Fox News Channel last Wednesday evening, Sean Hannity was coming to the end of a segment with Indiana Congressman Mike Pence, the chair of the House Republican Conference and a vociferous foe of President Obama’s nearly $1 […]

Warren Buffet Knows Investing, Butchers Economics, Wears His Guilt on His Sleeve

I’ve always believed that people should stick with doing what they know best. Doctors should stick to medicine, lawyers should stick to law, and businesspeople should stick to business. Unless they’ve taken the time to delve into a different topic, say, ethics or economics, then they shouldn’t allow their fame or professional reputation to give […]

Sign of the End Times: Keynes on the Comback Trail?

I’ve been hearing more and more about Keynesian economics lately. This bit from the Christian Science Monitor is the most specific I’ve found so far: Raising Keynes: An old economist finds new rock-star status: If economics were about boxing, the classic bout of modern times would have Milton Friedman in one corner and John Maynard […]
