ACORN Antics: You heard it here first

Thursday, February 26, 2009 6:07 Comments Off

Michelle Malkin’s latest column (posted Feb. 25) repeats the information I posted here and here on February 22nd. That blog was based on this video of an ACORN break-in with the thief claiming “homesteading.” It turns out that both the professional squatter (claiming to be a “victim”) and the ACORN property destruction specialist were arrested. [...]

Paul McCulley of PIMPCO

Wednesday, February 25, 2009 6:08 Comments Off

In addition to this stupid comment from Paul McCulley of PIMCO, he had an entire arsenal of asininity behind him during his CNBC appearance today. McCulley is known for his complete lack of substance because he never says anything that can be clearly defined. And not ever is he called upon to clarify or define [...]

Why I Hate Meetings

Tuesday, February 24, 2009 11:14 Comments Off

Meetings are a personal showcase for MBAs who love to hear themselves pretend to think. This 30-second YouTube reminds me of many meetings that have been forced to endure (that I once wrote about). And no, I will not admit that my hands are ‘neath the table passing time doing productive things with my Blackberry [...]

Tucker Carlson – One of the Great “Libertarians” in the Nation

Tuesday, February 24, 2009 10:38 Comments Off

“Tucker Carlson is one of the most effective communicators of libertarian ideas in the nation,” said Cato founder and president Ed Crane. Carlson has joined the Cato Institute as a senior fellow. Perhaps Mr. Crane didn’t watch Carlson during the Bush years. I’m sure he will be effective for communicating the Cato message, but this [...]

Another Traditional Newspaper Bankruptcy

Sunday, February 22, 2009 19:48 Comments Off

The Journal Register Co. is pushing up daisies. I always like to say that the balance sheet tells a pretty good story. It listed debt of as much as $1 billion and assets of between $100 million and $500 million in Chapter 11 documents.

Professional Squatters and ACORN Liars are “Homesteading”?

Sunday, February 22, 2009 16:24 Comments Off

This ACORN video has a story behind it. JG sent me his research on this. Here’s some Public Records information that a person posted on You Tube about the woman who “lost” her house: Donna Hanks initially purchased her home (315 South Ellwood, Baltimore, MD 21224) on 7/06/2001 for $87,000. She re-fi’d in 2005 for [...]

Michael Eric Dyson’s Marxist Training

Sunday, February 22, 2009 6:48 Comments Off

He is trying to stir up a race war, and he thinks that Obama gives him that opportunity (see his very last comment in the video). Here’s a good point from Myles Kantor about Dyson on Cuba. Dyson, a former welfare recipient, grew up in Detroit admiring Coleman Young and mixing with the great Marxists [...]

A Capitalist vs a Political Parasite

Saturday, February 21, 2009 14:33 Comments Off

Here’s a really nice comparative of White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs and the heroic Rick Santelli. Political hack since college, Robert Gibbs, invited seasoned financial executive Santelli to the White House where Gibbs (the bureaucratic factotum) will lecture Santelli (the trader/financial executive) on the markets. Rick said he’ll come. See the rest at American [...]

If There’s a Party, Bring on the Tea

And make sure to invite Rick Santelli. It’s great to see articles like this about all the protests ’round the land. Now this lady is not quite Janis Joplin, but I love it!
