HOW BAD WAS THE DE BLASIO INAUGURATION?

How bad was Bill de Blasio’s inauguration? So bad that even the New York Times, which avidly supported Mr. de Blasio, couldn’t let it go by without commenting. Excerpted from yesterday’s editorial: Mr. de Blasio’s words carried an indictment: the city had become unjust and unlivable for too many of the poor and working class. But he tempered this complaint, as he should...

LOW VOLT-AGE

Here’s something that most Chevrolet Volt owners know (which means virtually no one does), excerpted from Mark Modica’s article at the National Legal and Policy Center’s web site (nlpc.org): A recent study by fleetcarma.com unveils yet another drawback of General Motors’ much-hyped Chevy Volt. It appears that the environmentally-conscientious, affluent owners of the...

DAVID LIMBAUGH’S COLUMN ON RACISM

Syndicated columnist David Limbaugh (yes, he is Rush Limbaugh’s brother) has written an absolutely excellent column on racism – specifically the feeling of so many on the left that they have free rein to engage in racism, since they’re “the good guys”. Here is a small excerpt, which references the disgusting comments made by Melissa Harris-Perry and her...

EZRA KLEIN’S DEPARTURE FROM THE WASHINGTON POST

Is Ezra Klein, the left-wing boy wonder of the Washington Post, leaving? Is it because he is having a hissy-fit over new owner Jeff Bezos’s decision not to fund an internet domain for him to expound his wholly leftward views more exclusively than down with the peasants at his newspaper? Excerpted from Warner Todd Huston’s article at breitbart.com: As new owner Jeff Bezos begins his...

OBAMACARNAGE: THE WAR ON BABIES

Apparently it is not enough that ObamaCare forces every policyholder to pay for contraception services.  If you don’t use those services, it also makes it difficult to add a newborn child to their coverage. Can this possibly be?  Well, read the following excerpt from Ricardo Alonzo-Zalvidar’s article for the Associated Press, and you tell me: There’s another quirk in the...

OBAMACARNAGE: THE REALIZATION TOUR STARTS

ObamCare has commenced….with a swift kick in the labonza to the middle class. Excerpted from Jacqueline Leo’s article for the Fiscal Times: ObamaCare has delivered another sucker punch to the middle class. This time it’s sticker shock. Now that most people can get past the tech problems of HealthCare.gov and actually see the real cost of insurance plans available, they are...

BOB GRANT R. I. P.

Bob Grant, one of the true pioneers of talk radio, has passed away at the age of 84.  Though he had been ill for some time, initial reports do not mention the specific cause of death. Grant started in radio during the late 1940’s.  He became a full time talk show host in 1964, when he replaced the controversial, take-no-prisoners right winger, Joe Pine, at KABC in Los Angeles.  Grant...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote comes to us from John Ransom, writing for townhall.com. Here, among a lot of other worthwhile commentary, is what he has to say about ObamaCare: try to count the number of lies the White House– and the Democrat leadership– has tried to tell you to support Obamacare. Yes, the Obamacare that isn’t providing more coverage; the Obamacare that isn’t...

THE WOLF OF WALL STREET

Yesterday we saw the much-heralded new Martin Scorcese film, The Wolf Of Wall Street. It was very entertaining – enough to keep me awake after a very long New Years’ Eve night, then morning.  And that wasn’t easy, believe me. The acting?  Excellent. Leonardo DiCaprio (a favorite of Scorcese’s, not mine) gave the best performance I have seen from him.  And the young (23...

THE OBEIDALLAH WHINE-FEST

At least Melissa Harris-Perry had the sense to apologize for the obnoxious, snarky taunting, by her and her panel on (where else?) MSNBC, about Mitt Romney’s family picture, which included its latest addition – an adopted Black child – and leave it at that. But not panelist and so-called “comedian” David Obeidallah, who tastelessly used the child to insult...

THE DE BLASIO ERA STARTS…AS EXPECTED

Did you catch any of the speeches during Bill de Blasio’s inaugural as Mayor of New York City – including his own? It was exactly what should have been expected, given Mr. de Blasio’s politics:  a feast of hard-line, far left rhetoric, complete with attack after attack on the Bloomberg administration, as outgoing three-term Mayor Mike Bloomberg sat in the audience...

RAPE AND REALITY

I just read a very interesting, very courageous article about rape, written by The Daily Mail’s Sarah Vine.  I call it courageous because Ms. Vine said something that. while 100% true, is attacked every time it is pointed out. Here, let me show you via the following excerpts: Sex without consent, whatever the circumstances, is always a crime. Whether a woman is drunk, sober, unconscious...

BENGHAZI: A REMINDER FOR THE NEW YORK TIMES

Now that most people – other than the “it’s a phony scandal” purveyors and their dupes- have derided the New York Times’ claim that the Benghazi massacre was a spontaneous attack, largely due to anger over an obscure video, which had nothing to al-Qaeda or its terrorist pals, I thought you would like to see this excerpt, pulled from an article at politico.com...

BARACK OBAMA’S “WAR ON THE POOR”?

Everyone knows that Barack Obama and his fellow Democrats love to help people in need.  The proof?  They are engaged in an intense effort to give them benefits like longer periods of unemployment insurance and higher minimum wages. But are these benefits really that wonderful? Michael Tanner doesn’t think so.  He thinks they constitute a “war on the poor”.  And...

MSNBC: THE YEAR IN VIDEO

The folks at Washington Free Beacon have put together a condensed version of MSNBC’s year in review, in the form of a 72 second video:  Click here to see it. I’d end by saying “enjoy”… but I’m not sure that word actually fits.  It’s more like you won’t know whether to laugh at, cry at, or just shake your head in  amazement.
