CBO: Global Warming Policies Will Affect [Un]Employment

Reading through the CBO Brief intended to address how anti-global warming policies will negatively impact employment, I couldn’t help asking myself, “was it ‘bring your kid to work day'” at the CBO.  I was considering whether I had been spoofed into some kids blog or otherwise tricked into reading some overly-zealous conservative’s facebook page.  Nope, it’s authentic, but it reads ...

Left Wants Gun Rights Taken Away on Suspicion, Conviction Too Late

Perusing the liberal blogosphere, I came across some interesting reactions on the Huffington Post (hey I read all sides) to N.Y. Governor Bloomberg’s ‘Terror Gap’ plea.  Michael Bloomberg is pointing out that suspected terrorists are able to buy guns.  The liberals are going nuts because someone suspected of something is allowed to keep their rights as afforded by the constitution. ...

Oil leak, rioting masses, terrorists in NY. Is the White House Getting Anything Done?

When you focus too much on politics, often reality beats you into the ground.

What’s Really Happening with Arizona’s Immigration Law?

rizona Governor, Jan Brewer signed her State's new tough immigration bill into law this week. There is heavy support from Arizona residents, but firm opposition from liberal-leaning organizations. Arizona has been pleading for assistance from the Federal government for years, so this is not a new problem, nor did Obama cause it. Immigration was a problem Obama had promised to solve in the first year of his presidency and his failure to follow-through has given Governor Brewer no choice but to act at the State level.

Tea Party: Serious or Just Pissed Off?

I am one of those Conservatives that has disassociated themselves from the GOP.  The Republicans weren’t manging our money any better than the Democrats.  The only difference is that the Liberals would spend more and tax more, the GOP would only spend more. Seeing the Tea Party focus so much on the tax side of the equation without spelling out ...
