Right of center Americans have been ridiculing the vacuity of Sean Penn for years but he’s had his critics on the left as well and the Daily Beast recently joined that small group of left-wing sources critical of Penn with a devastating piece lambasting Penn’s pretensions at being a social commentator and journalist.

Not All Occupiers Are Violent Extremists…

Note from the Media: Occupy is mostly peaceful. Not all occupiers are violent, extremists with bomb materials…except when they are. Morgan Gliedman and her Occupy lover, Aaron Greene are headed for jail. Gliedman is 9 months pregnant. Wonder how Gliedman’s parents feel about raising their grandkid. NY Post: A detective discovered a plastic container with […]

What Fiscal Cliff? VP Biden, Gov’t Workers Getting Raises

Imagine you are working for a company that is going bankrupt, but everyone you work with and your bosses are getting pay raises. Seem absurd? Not if you work for the failing federal government because President Obama has happily decreed that Vice President Biden, members of Congress and most federal workers are getting raises for […]

NRA Still More Popular Than Media

For all the abuse the Old Media establishment has dished out to the National Rifle Association this month, polls show that the NRA is still more popular than the media. Gallup released a poll this month stating that the NRA stands at 54 percent approval. Fifty-four percent of Americans have a favorable opinion of the […]

#BENGHAZI: “Sloppiness” and Susan Rice – Again.

I’m beginning to think this President is at worst, a pathological liar or at best, Bipolar. A month ago, he was barking like a junkyard dog in defense of Susan Rice, after admitting he sent her out to lie to the nation.  Now we get this from Obama on Benghazi (via MSNBC): GREGORY: In the […]

Forget The Fiscal Cliff, We’re Facing A Milk Cliff

From The Hill: The three bills are aimed at preventing a spike in dairy prices looming in the new year. Because Congress has failed to renew farm programs, an underlying 1949 law is slated to kick in. This would force the government to buy up American milk at inflated prices and the purchases are expected […]

What The Heck?

Well that was embarrassing. Turns out we were down for a few hours while I wasn’t looking. Usually I get text messages and other alerts if there is anything wrong with the site. It turns out I did get the alerts, I just didn’t have my phone near me to receive them… Oh well, it’s […]

“How Did It Come To This?”

Well, as we are all aware of by now, the latest crisis being used to spook the bejesus out of Americans is the upcoming, scary-sounding ‘fiscal cliff.’ Though the fiscal cliff may indeed have the potential to cause some uncomfortable financial consequences for the American taxpayer, let’s not kid ourselves about the true motives behind […]

Yes Virginia, sooner or later we will all be paying more taxes

My previous post dealt with two “surprise” taxes buried in the new Affordable Care Act regulations.  And for the past year, observers have been listing the plethora of new taxes scheduled to take affect in 2013, fiscal cliff or no fiscal cliff. But that isn’t the whole story.  Far from it, in fact. All that […]

If Dianne Feinstein has seen far…

…it is because she stands on the shoulders of giants.  Forcing the law-abiding to present themselves and be registered by government agents has long been a staple of freedom-loving rulers.  Why even today we see shining beacons of freedom taking the common sense measure of passing laws to register lawful users of an inanimate object […]

A view from the other side

Lots of arguments flying back and forth on gun control these days, and I came across and interesting piece from the other side.  Other side of the globe, that is.  From the glorious pages of Pravda comes this editorial from Stanislav Michin, reprinted from his blog Mat Rodina.  I did a little editing to clean […]

Venture capitalist John MacIntosh proposes that a group of rich liberals purchase Freedom Group, the largest gun manufacturer in the United States, then systematically destroy it.

And so it begins

In a shameless rush to use the murders at Sandy Hook as a soapbox from which to show her ass to the law-abiding gun owners in America, perennial gun-grabber and all-around lackwit Dianne Feinstein (D, California) has released an outline of the gun control legislation she intends to introduce to the Senate in 2013.  Drawing […]

#BENGHAZI: Just Kidding. No Real Resignations.

As I stated last week via the NY Times article, it looked to me like these folks were being paid off by being put on administrative leave. Emphasis added: Oh hey, look…Some resignations! With the Accountability report also came four resignations. Four is a nice round number to take the blame for what was ultimately […]

NBC’s Gregory Mocks NRA Security Guard Idea But Sends Own Kids to Guarded School

On NBC’s Meet The Press over the weekend, David Gregory was quite confrontational with the Vice President of the National Rifle Association over the organization’s idea of putting armed security guards in every school in America.
