Hot Air is reporting that it has obtained a report from the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office (C.B.O.) that shows that Social Security is in more trouble than Obama’s Director of the Office of Management and Budget (O.M.B.), Peter Orszag, previously reported. The C.B.O. and the C.B.O. website and “Director’s Blog” contain no mention or repudiation [...]

Scott Ott published an article in the Washington Examiner that could very well fix everything using the Obama administration’s favorite tool – the public option. “White House sources said today that President Obama may soon propose legislation that would save Americans billions of dollars each year while improving service by creating a ‘public option’ version [...]
Members of Congress, the President, and anyone else with an opinion is still blaming the recession on greedy corporations. This article isn’t about rehashing the debate, but… what about the greedy government elitists? What about us? The government needs us to borrow more to feed the partial-reserve economy system we have. To get us to [...]
In an article in the Calgary Herald, Lorne Gunter reveals that leading climatologists are saying that the Earth has been cooling for a decade and will continue to for a few more. This isn’t making news in the main-stream media and it likely won’t. If we aren’t all scared-to-death about it, key portions of the [...]
Conservative commentator and author Andrew Breitbart hinted that a blockbuster news story would be coming this week. Blogs are alive with speculation as to what Andrew has up his sleeve considering his early digging into the problems at ACORN that finally resulted in the current investigations. Blogs posts and forums are filled with guesses from [...]
CNN performed a second set of polls allowing Americans to judge Obama’s performance. The first had given the President a C+ for his first 100 days and this week they released his second 100 days poll: a C-. Obama is expected to give himself a speech on working harder and getting better grades. SEIU and [...]
On September 18th, the FDIC announced two more bank closures that would require funds from the insurance corporation in-order-to protect depositor’s money. This month alone there have been ten bank failures and the month isn’t over yet. There were fifteen closures in August and at the current pace, it’s entirely possible that September will have [...]
Still thickly in the middle of the biggest economic catastrophe since the great depression, American policy makers are making anti-free trade decisions that are eerily similar to the protectionist moves made during the depression. The A.R.R.A. (stimulus bill), has provisions in it that only allow the money to be spent on “manufactured goods” that are [...]
In an Alisnky-style attack, liberals are attempting to ridicule, shame, and belittle critics of Obama administration policies instead of debating the actual issues. Nancy Pelosi, a liberal leader and Speaker of the House of Representatives, today issued a dire warning while speaking to reporters. One member of the press asked what she thought of the [...]
Liberals are going full-court press with racism. The idea of intelligent debate and discussing real issues has left the building. Conservatives must realize their current strengths and ignore these tactics. When called a racist, ignore and re-ask your question. Whatever your you asked pushed them in a corner and they threw out the race card. [...]
I thought I would share an incredibly relevant documentary video that shows how we should rely on the government (the good fairy) when we lose our way. There is a bit of symbolism, and it is a bit dark, but the message it relays is very relevant to our struggles today.
A tourist walks into a curio shop. Looking around at the exotica, he notices a very lifelike life-sized bronze statue of a rat. It has no price tag, but is so striking he decides he must have it. He takes it to the owner: “How much for the bronze rat?” “$12 for the rat, $100 for the story,” says the owner.
Just thought I’d share an odd weather map I ranacross when checking my own weather this evening. It appears that a giant swath of grass is going to cross the mid-Atlantic tomorrow. I’m not exactly sure how to dress for that. I don’t think it’s politically motivated, at least… I don’t think I think it’s [...]
