TWO GREAT OBITUARIES

Apropos of nothing political: I usually am not attracted to obituaries.  And, as a rule of thumb, my idea of a really great one is any obituary that does not feature either me or anyone I care about. That said, Steven Hayword, of powerlineblog.com, has put up a blog with links to two truly fascinating obituaries.  And, in an effort to share the death er, wealth, I...

PREVENTING ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION

Bloomberg – bloombergview.com, to be more exact – published an editorial two days ago that should be must-reading for anyone concerned about the tidal wave of illegal aliens who have come to the United States – the vast majority of them from Mexico.  I don\’t agree with everything in this editorial.  But I agree with a lot of it.  The logic and common sense...

A HEADS-UP FOR DEBBIE WASSERMAN SCHULTZ

Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who doubles as a Democrat house member from Florida and Chairperson of the Democratic National Committee, was on the Ed Schultz\’s “The Ed Show” Wedhesday.  show yesterday.  She informed Schultz and his audience that David Jolly\’s win over Alex Sink in Tuesday\’s special election was not a referendum on ObamaCare and that the...

BARACK OBAMA ALMOST SAYS SOMETHING TRUTHFUL ABOUT OBAMACARE

Big news. It almost happened.  Barack Obama almost something truthful about ObamaCare. While being interviewed by WebMD (another of the seemingly countless interviews he has given trying to sell ObamaCare to a public that clearly does not want it) Mr. Obama said the following: “Forthe average person, many folks who don\’t have health insuranceinitially, they\’re...

ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION AND BLACK UNEMPLOYMENT

From the bloombergview.com editorial referenced in my previous blog: As many as 8 million undocumented immigrants hold jobs in the U.S. In fact, they account for more than 5 percent of the U.S. labor force. Their unemployment rate might even be lower than that of the nation\’s black citizens. Black unemployment in this country is about twice as high as it is for Whites. While many factors...

DID MALAYSIA FLIGHT 370 CRASH?

Incredible as it may seem, Malaysia Airlines flight 370 may not have crashed.  It may have been hijacked and is still intact. This – to me – is a long, long, long shot. But the Wall Street Journal is reporting that the plane\’s three tracking systems may have been shut down manually – and the shutdowns took place over a period of 14 minutes…which is, to say...

MORE OBAMACARE LIES

Just a quick blog to point out another of the seemingly countless lies Barack Obama is telling about ObamaCare. This one is the thoroughly bogus claim that young people can get coverage for the same per-month cost as a cellphone – which Mr. Obama said during his pathetic, and not even close to being funny, video with “comedian” (maybe to you) Zack Galafianakis. His exact...

REAL RACISM (CONT.)

The latest installment of our “Real Racism” series (a series I wish would end, but never does) concerns South Puget Sound College in Olympia, Washington. The resident geniuses at this supposed institute of higher learning decided that it would be a really great idea to have a “happy hour” for the purpose of building “support and community” for Black...

THE MOST IMPORTANT – AND VIRTUALLY UNREPORTED – DATA FROM THE NEW NEW NBC/WSJ POLL

The latest NBC/Wall Street Journal poll is out.  And the numbers are dismal for President Obama and ObamaCare. Mr. Obama is at his lowest approval level (41%) and highest disapproval level (54%) in the poll\’s history.  Moreover, ObamaCare is still near its all-time low, and the most motivated voters are the people most against it. These data are very interesting…but I...

OUR GAS BILL

We got our first full-month gas bill yesterday…covering the period from January 29 to February 28 (31 days). We converted from oil to gas in mid-January. Until then, we had been on a budget plan – which cost $402 for oil paid for 11 of the 12 months….About $367 a month on average.     Obviously, though, the monthly cost for oil is far higher during the...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today\’s quote comes to us from Republican consultant Andrew Sere, talking about what it means to the Democrat Party that as weak a candidate as David Jolly – a former Washington lobbyist – was able to defeat as formidable a candidate as Alex Sink, by invoking ObamaCare: “Inthis environment, the only thing Democrats can do is hope forRepublican opponents who come from...

OBAMCARNAGE: THE NEW ENROLLMENT NUMBERS

The new ObamaCare “enrollment” numbers are in.  And they are catastrophic for Democrats. A quick reminder:  President Obama, HHS Secretary Sebelius, Harry Reid, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, etc. have all told us that the only reason ObamaCare enrollments didn\’t surge was the disastrous web site rollout.  They also told us that the web site was fixed by the end of...
