THE NEW YORK TIMES & THE SUPREME COURT MICHIGAN DECISION

Since the previous blog discussed an excellent (if belated) editorial by the Washington Post, let\’s go to the other side and look at a foolish, even bizarre, one from the New York Times. As you are probably aware, The Supreme Court ruled, yesterday, that Michigan – and, therefore, other states as well –  was within its constitutional rights to allow voters to ban the...

SYRIA TODAY: THE RESULTS OF OUR “DEAL”

Anyone remember the “deal\’ President Obama and Secretary of State, John Kerry, made with Syria, through its Russian puppeteers?  Click here to remind yourself of just how ridiculous, how naive, how ineffective, how one-sided in favor of Syria and Russia it was. Well, that “deal” was cut about 7 months ago.  So now we can look back and see how...

BRITISH “OBAMACARE” UPDATE

Since ObamaCare is, in no small part, modeled on the British National Health System (NHS), I thought you might be interested in Padraic Flanagan and Laura Donnelly\’s article in London\’s Daily Telegraph.  Here are a few highlights.  Please pay particular attention to the paragraphs I\’ve put in bold print: Atleast 1,000 hospital patients are dying...

IS EQUAL OPPORTUNITY A RIGHT WING CONCEPT?

Strange title, wouldn\’t you say? But after reading the blog by Josh Gerstein, Maggie Severns and Stephanie Simon of politico.com, I have to wonder. Read the first three paragraphs and see why: TheSupreme Court delivered another setback to affirmative actionTuesday, easing the way for states to bar public colleges fromconsidering race in admissions and to prohibit officials from...

WANTED: A BIRD BRAIN

For the second straight year, birds have, for some reason, taken up residence in our chimney.  Last year they stuck around for a couple of weeks – which was more than plenty.  This year it is already over two weeks and they are still happily ensconced among the soot and ashes.  I keep telling my wife that they\’ll be gone any day now.  She keeps giving me the...

WASHINGTON POST\’S HARD-LEFT HIRE: THE FIX IS IN

Ever hear of Philip Bump?  If not, you will – he is the Washington Post\’s latest hire for its “The Fix” web site. Dailycaller.com\’s Brendan Bordelon has the lowdown on Bump – who is an aggressively far-left hatchet man if there ever was one – and you can read it by clicking here.  But, in the meanwhile, here\’s just a...

OBAMACARE: WILL DEMOCRATS PROUDLY RUN ON IT?

If you ask President Obama, and DNC Chairperson Debbie Wasserman Schultz, and assorted other Democrats who are completely safe politically, either because they are not running anymore or come from a heavily Democrat district, ObamaCare is a wonderful system, everyone either loves it or should love it, and it should proudly be featured in their 2014 midterm campaigns. Then there are the...

OBAMACARNAGE: THE COST OF INSURANCE

Among the many – and still growing number of – lies the President and his fellow Democrats have told us about ObamaCare, is the absolute BS that it is lowering health care costs. I could write about this, but I would be re-inventing the wheel, since Paul Mirengoff at powerlineblog.com has done such a terrific job of it. Click here to read his full commentary.   But...

THE CHAVEZING OF THE UNITED STATES (CONT.)

Barack Obama is doing it again.  He is ignoring the laws of this country and – with cover from his Accomplice Media – making it up as he goes along.  Just like hugo chavez did in Venezuela. On April 10th, a bill that was introduced by Senator Ted Cruz, barring Iran\’s newly named Ambassador to the United Nations, Hamid Abutalebi, from entering the USA, because of...
