An now for a major break from politics… Are you a big Trekker? Did you love the original Kirk/Spock Star Trek (or as fans call it TOS–for “The Original Series”)? Have you seen some of those fan-made, web-based episodes that left you snickering, even if only a bit? Well, get ready for Star Trek Continues [...]
Remember when Obama took office and one of his biggest promises was that lobbyists would never gain a foothold in his Administration? Well, now that he doesn’t have to stand for election again he’s doing his level best to give lobbyists one of their biggest perks yet. He’s trying to make it legal to give [...]
-By Warner Todd Huston Today at 11:45 AM, Fox Newser John Scott of Happening Now read my story posted to Breitbart’s BigHollywood.com. My piece was headlined, “Despite Wide Appeal to Middle America, Jay Leno Out at ‘Tonight’.” I know, I know, it’s like I’m being a gushing fanboy… but come on. I ain’t mentioned on [...]
Despite some $430 million in tax breaks for Hollywood in last year’s “fiscal cliff” deal, DreamWorks Animation CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg has announced that he is cutting 350 people by the end of the year. After the disappointing box office for DreamWorks’ latest film, The Rise of the Guardians, Katzenberg said that the $165 million loss [...]
Glenn Reynolds linked to a piece in The Fiscal Times that talks about the continuing marriage penalty in the tax code, and how the rate increase on “wealthy” would hit dual earner especially hard in places where both the cost of living and salaries are high. As noted by a commenter there, the tax divorce [...]
You think you know where I’m going with this but you better sit down and buckle up your chinstrap. This is one of those stories that I could never understand if I lived for a million years and read a billion law books. Judge: State must pay more than $700,000 in legal fees to attorneys [...]
Many TV critics and commentators like to say that you can judge the way this nation is feeling about itself and its times by looking at the sort of shows that are playing on television. They say that our mood and our outlook about our present and our future can be understood through the collective [...]
Apparently, Late-night comedian Conan O’Brien thinks asking the President of the United States a serious question is something to ridicule. Or maybe it wasn’t the question, but just the fact that it was a well-known conservative that posed the rather inoffensive query. As President Obama has allowed but one puffball interview after another, avoiding all [...]
The Environmental Protection Agency has been indulging its inner propagandist by spending at least $3.5 million to float newspaper that is purportedly “reporting” on the EPA’s pet issues. Unfortunately for the readers of this newspaper, the fact that the EPA is its sugar daddy is never told the reading public. So much for an independent [...]
The Washington Free Beacon has undertaken a series of reports that are important for anyone interested in a follow-the-money investigation of one of the biggest influences on today’s Democrat Party. This is a hard-core group of far left extremists holding the Democrats purse strings and is called the Democracy Alliance. It is a George Soros-sponsored [...]
Much was made of Governor Sarah Palin’s use of the term “government death panels” to lambaste Obamacare. Left-wingers and Democrats everywhere scoffed at the term and accused Palin of demagogy and even lying. But the fact is, government death panels of all sorts are inevitable once government takes over healthcare. In fact, once government takes [...]
Shockingly, it would seem that a significant proportion of the high earning businesses and individuals in California are voting with their feet and relocating to states where they can keep more of what they earn.
Bad luck, that.
More than half of those in favor of Obamacare agree that at least one of its provisions is Unconstitutional, yet they are still in favor of it.
You owe it to yourself to read “The Politics of the Accomodation,” a lament by devout liberal Catholic Michael Sean Winters who has suddenly found his eyes opened to the truth about the Obama Administration and, in general, the social politics of the political Left. He concludes: I confess I no longer understand Obama. He [...]
Once again Indiana Democrats are playing the fleebagger game. Because they don’t have enough votes in the Indiana Statehouse, Hoosier Democrats are abandoning their rightful duties and fleeing the Capitol over Indiana’s right-to-work bill currently under consideration in Indianapolis. Indiana Senate Bill 269 and House Bill 1001 would make it illegal to require workers in [...]
From the “We Are the 99%” website: “We are the 99 percent. We are getting kicked out of our homes. We are forced to choose between groceries and rent. We are denied quality medical care. We are suffering from environmental pollution. We are working long hours for little pay and no rights, if we’re working [...]
Why is America in deep kimchee? Because people like this woman vote… for those who keep her in her ignorance and who have her convinced that her… mindset… has value… if you can stand it, listen through to the end (be warned, the woman doesn’t just have a mind that is worthless but she’s also [...]
Two American Thinker posts to ponder this morning, each highlighting how radical this administration truly is. Let’s first turn to John T. Bennett’s Obama baits the dependency trap: An administration program will expand free school meal coverage to millions of young people who are not even supposed to be eligible. A stated goal of the [...]
