Anniversary

Today is the sixteenth anniversary of the Waco Massacre.

This is a reason why no one could in good conscience vote for any active member of the Democratic Party.

Someone Else’s Thought For The Day

April 12, 2009

From John Cox of Cox and Forkum:

In the comments GarandFan said:

Guess that explains why Obama removed the bust of Churchill from the oval office. No need to be reminded daily that you’re an idiot.

We now return you to your regularly scheduled reality.

Some Random Thoughts From Thomas Sowell

April 11, 2009

I am so old that I can remember when music was musical.

Barack Obama seems determined to repeat every disastrous mistake of the 1930s, at home and abroad. He has already repeated Herbert Hoover’s policy of raising taxes on high income earners, FDR’s policy of trying to micro-manage the economy and Neville Chamberlain’s policy of seeking dialogues with hostile nations while downplaying the dangers they represent.

Perhaps the scariest aspect of our times is how many people think in talking points, rather than in terms of real world consequences.

How a man who holds the entire population of a country as his prisoners, and punishes the families of those who escape, can be admired by people who call themselves liberals is one of the many wonders of the human mind’s ability to rationalize. Yet such is the case with Fidel Castro.

What does “economic justice” mean, except that you want something that someone else produced, without having to produce anything yourself in return?

Socialists believe in government ownership of the means of production. Fascists believed in government control of privately owned businesses, which is much more the style of this government. That way, politicians can intervene whenever they feel like it and then, when their interventions turn out badly, summon executives from the private sector before Congress and denounce them on nationwide television.

Politics As Usual

April 3, 2009

Meanwhile, inside the Beltway…

The president’s e-mail list of 13-million resulted in just 114,000 individual pledges — a response rate of less than 1 percent. Party workers secured another 100,000 signatures by hitting the streets. The DNC arrived at its 642,000 figure by making three photocopies of each petition so that every signer’s senators and representative could get one.

DNC spokesperson Natalie Wyeth responded: “This effort was designed to give our supporters the tools to influence their elected officials. Of course we delivered a pledge to each of their members of Congress — 642,000 pledges. That’s what we said we were delivering and that’s what we did.”

When asked about the impression in the DNC press release that there were 642,000 unique pledges, she offered no response.

Gosh, what a surprise.

Merry Christmas!

I’ve Been Saying This For Years

December 21, 2008

“The Democrat’s platform is nearly the same as the 1933 NSDAP’s platform.”

What are your questions on this block of instruction?

(I also strongly suggest reading The Ominous Parallels.)

Anniversary

On this day in 1941 the Imperial Japanese Navy did something that was really stupid.

The Imperial government apparently failed their premise check before embarking on a war with the United States.
