PARTISAN DUPING

I would hope it comes as no surprise to you that partisan web sites, whether left wing or right wing, tailor their material to fit the narratives they are promoting. But in case there are still some folks unaware that this is happening, and would like to see how it is done, I am putting up excerpts from Jeffrey Young\’s article about ObamaCare, which is currently featured at the...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today\’s quote comes to us from former San Francisco house member, former Speaker of the House, and perennial partisan hatchetperson, Nancy Pelosi. Here is Ms. Pelosi\’s demand, regarding Speaker of the House Boehner\’s creation of a select committee on Benghazi: “If this review is to be fair, it must be truly bipartisan.  The panel should be equally divided...

THE 97% CLIMATE CHANGE FRAUD

You, of course, have heard of man-made climate change (you may have known it as man-made global warming…until it became clear that the earth\’s temperature was not really warming right now, so the terminology magically changed). You probably have also heard an oft-stated claim that 97% of all scientists support the theory that global war….er, climate change...

A GOLDEN PICTURE

Time out from politics, for a picture you have to love…which comes to us from my long-time pal and co-author, Barry Sinrod:  a guy who is going through some extremely rough times which I hope resolve very quickly and for the best:   Does that get cuter?  I don\’t know how it could.

LLOYD HARRIS R.I.P.

Only a few, if any, readers will know who Lloyd Harris was.  So let me tell you. Lloyd was the brother, and long time business partner of J. Robert “Bob” Harris, at JRH Research….until a rare brain disease – one with no cure – took hold of him.  Lloyd fought back.  Hard.  But, yesterday, it finally defeated him. Anyone who knew Lloyd – or...

THE SUPREME COURT PRAYER RULING

Yesterday, in a split (5-4) decision, the US Supreme Court ruled that government functions can begin with prayers, including prayers specific to a single religion (usually, but not necessarily, Christian) as long as no religion is advanced or disparaged, and residents aren\’t coerced. That, to me, is ridiculous. I certainly support freedom of religion.  And I certainly support the...

THE NEW NORMAL???

CNN is running a story written by Holly Yan, about the kidnapping of over 200 girls in rural Chibok, Nigeria, which was proudly “accomplished” by the radical Islamic terrorist group boko haram.  The reason given for this horrific act was that the girls were in a school, and, according to Islam, girls cannot be educated. Here are the first few paragraphs: Oneyear ago this month...

THE OBAMACARE LIES

Hard though it seems to believe, there are still people who don\’t realize just how completely they have been lied to about ObamaCare. That being the case, I thought I would perform a public service by providing a compilation of instances in which President Obama said –The average family would save $2,500; –If you like your insurance plan you can keep it;  –If you...

FROZEN VEGETABLES

Apropos of nothing political…. We generally prefer to buy name brand frozen vegetables. But as store brands go, Shop-Rite\’s are actually pretty good – maybe even better than Wegman\’s which, in my opinion, generally has high quality store brand stuff.  On the lower end, the A&P\’s frozen vegetables are limp and damn near tasteless. Ok, back to politics...

MEXICAN STEREOTYPING, AND SELECTIVE OUTRAGE

Suppose Fox News stereotyped Mexicans as sombrero-wearing, tequila-guzzling idiots?  Do you think there would be a reaction to it in the media? Do you think MSNBC would have something to say about it? Well, watch this video of Mexicans  being portrayed exactly that way – and on Cinco de Mayo to boot – which comes to us via Mark Finkelstein\’s blog at...

A CANARY IN THE POLL MINE?

The talking points are in place:  The economy is leaping forward, ObamaCare is working wonderfully, Benghazi is two years old so it doesn\’t count, and the IRS never existed in the first place… …which, of course, resolves that thorny issue of 2014\’s midterm elections, right? Not if this latest poll, put out by the Pew Research Center for USA Today, has it...
