Warren Buffett Loves Uncle Intervention

Thursday, November 18, 2010 4:41 11 Comments

This is really a strange, little “letter,” or New York Times op-ed, from Warren Buffett to the world’s savior, Uncle Sam. Mr. Buffett expresses his gratitude to his Dear Uncle and the chorus of worker bee bureaucrats – Bair, Geithner, Paulson, Bernanke – who acted promptly to help stave off disaster and defend the portfolios [...]

Kagan Softball Innuendo

Tuesday, May 11, 2010 22:21 8 Comments

The Internet is buzzing about the Wall Street Journal‘s use of a photo of Elena Kagan playing softball. Of course, the complaint is that the implication is that she is a lesbian, and yes, lesbians play softball. Hence a conservative paper digging up the old photo. Ben Smith at Politico has reproduced the page here. Vanity [...]

Collective Child Rearing

Friday, October 30, 2009 4:36 4 Comments

I couldn’t help but read an article in this morning’s New York Times, “Perils of the Recession Generation.” I don’t know why I continue to read this nauseating, left-collectivist trash. Is it an overstatement to say that we’re at risk of losing a generation of children if we don’t step up to the plate to [...]

Got Union? Got Pension.

Tuesday, October 27, 2009 7:43 1 Comment

And you have Obenefits, courtesy of Obama. Thanks to His Master’s “bold moves” and “sweeping measures,” the UAW runs the show in AutoLand, and its members have secured their plush pensions while higher-skilled, white-collar, non-union fellows get the shaft. Hat tip to Bill Anderson, whose blood pressure is surging to staggering heights while conducting his daily morning [...]

Anti-Herd Dissenters Are … Paranoid

Thursday, October 22, 2009 5:55 2 Comments

If you dissent from the official establishment view of the world and challenge a shred of the status quo, you suffer from a paranoia disorder, according the the Wall Street Journal‘s Thomas Frank. In fact, paranoia is apparent if you think the U.S. is turning toward fascism or communism, or if you question the Federal [...]

Bono: “Rebrand America”

Sunday, October 18, 2009 12:35 10 Comments

The Irish goofball Bono is at it again. He wants to “Rebrand, restart, reboot” America. Doesn’t restart mean the same as reboot? Here is His Excellence: In dangerous, clangorous times, the idea of America rings like a bell (see King, M. L., Jr., and Dylan, Bob). It hits a high note and sustains it without [...]

Political Profiling at Whole Foods

Tuesday, October 13, 2009 14:37 10 Comments

George Will’s new column has two extraordinary paragraphs that are especially relevant for anyone who ever ventures near a suburban Whole Foods store. To glimpse a state of nature as Hobbes imagined it, where human life is “nasty, brutish and short,” visit the Whole Foods store on River Road in Bethesda, Md. There, and — let the political [...]

They Did it for Teddy

Obamalosi’s hate crime agenda is in full gear. Sorry for the scary photo. The House voted Thursday to make it a federal crime to assault people because of their sexual orientation, significantly expanding the hate crimes law enacted in the days after Martin Luther King Jr.’s assassination in 1968. With expected passage by the Senate, [...]

Will Ferrell’s Public Service Announcement

Wednesday, October 7, 2009 9:41 1 Comment

Most people have viewed the Hollywood celebrity commercial promoting the public option for health care. There’s also a parody of that, and it mimics the entire announcement, line by line, including photographic effects. It’s absolutely great. The original is on top, and the parody is below. Thanks to Ken Sturzenacker for the links.

The Defenders of ObamaCommunism

Thursday, October 1, 2009 7:32 1 Comment

This snippet from an article on Politico caught my eye: Justin Ruben, executive director of MoveOn.org, is also unapologetic for pushing back against Obama’s critics. “We said all along that we would take on the opposition and anyone standing in the way” of the White House agenda, he said. “August was a real wake-up call [...]
