List of Obama’s Executive Actions on Gun Control

I looked around a few days ago when Obama announced his “Executive Actions” on the subject of gun violence, but I didn’t see anything comprehensive at the time.  Of course the media also widely reported them- incorrectly – as “Executive Orders”, which they are not. I happened to stumble across the complete list earlier tonight, […]

Rombama? Robama? Obamney?

Rombama? Robama? Obamney?  I don’t know what name will ultimately be used for this seemingly inevitable putridity of a choice, but it will suck.  Because there is no real choice between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney. Except for a few of the “I’m more Christian than Christ” stupidities that all Republicans evidently have to parrot, […]

Romney edges closer to batshit crazy

The Republicans have certainly had their share of experience with candidates dropping off the deep end into “batshit crazy” territory. Exhibit A was Bachmann, then Perry, then Gingrich – and Santorum has always been borderline lunatic – but for all his faults Romney at least seemed sane. He must be getting desperate to connect to […]

Another Mitt Romney Flip-Flop

Gail Collins had a good piece i the NY Times the other day, titled The Bad News is Good News about another Romney flip-flop.  Last week Romney said: “The idea of presidential candidates getting into questions about contraception within a relationship between a man and a woman, husband and wife, I’m not going there.” Except […]

I received an email from one of my Senators, John Duncan this evening. He’s touting his sponsorship of a “point of order” on the proposed highway bill, which “called on Congress to face fiscal reality as it considers a two-year highway reauthorization bill.” He says he’s “against the pending highway bill for violating spending restrictions”. […]

Batshit Bachmann drops out

Dammit!  Michelle Bachmann dropped out of the race today.  She was so easy to make fun of, just had to read the speeches that day to get new batshit material. Oh well, the whacko side of the Republican party is still well represented with Perry, Gingrich, and Santorum. I’d add Mitt to the list, but […]

10 years after 9/11/01

This is simply a list of facts that have happened since 9/11/2001.  Just in case any paranoid people have forgotten, the first fact I need to mention is that 19 terrorists killed 2,977 people on 9/11. (Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Casualties_of_the_September_11_attacks)  Now, here’s the list as of today, 9/10/2011. 6,026 US military service members have been killed in […]

Daily Kos Krap

Ok, I know the Daily Kos is a socialist leaning liberal site, but when this popped up in my newsfeed I just had to comment. First up, here’s their quote (I’m not attempting to verify the quote, an I’m assuming it’s accurate) from Mike Lee (R, Utah) I mean, look, when we’re bringing it about […]

Guns and Gold

I just read this in today’s Daily Reckoning. “Once they get a taste for it,” Bill Bonner observed in his essay “Tomorrow Happened Yesterday”, “few economies can resist spending money they didn’t earn. First, they borrow from the future. Then, they steal from it, by simply printing money. Finally, you get déjà vu, as yesterday’s […]
