Op-Ed

Slinging In The Rain

“Obama, with his presidency crumbling, is like a petulant child who wants to pick up his marbles and leave.” (The Presidency is Breaking Obama Even As Obama Has Broken the Nation) “With multiple crises spiraling out of control around the world, stories about the Obama presidency are taking on the air of postmortems. What went wrong, who’s to blame, what next — even The New York Times is starting to recognize that Dear Leader is a global flop.” (The media is turning on President Obama) “Barack Obama has played almost 200 rounds of golf, no matter what crisis is ongoing.

Are Women Victims Of Their Vaginas? The Call for Free Feminine Hygiene Products

Move over Sandra Fluke and make room for Jessica Valenti, a reporter for The Guardian. {A big Hat Tip to Bruce McQuain at Questions and Observations for this bit of insanity.} Thanks to the testimony of a political plant from the prestigious Georgetown Law School, Sandra Fluke, the insurance provided by employers must provide women with FREE condoms and/or other forms of contraception. Flukes argument seems to have been that women can’t control what they do with their vaginas and according to her cost estimate of $3000 per year, women law students lose control of their vaginas a lot! Now we […]

An Ode To The Odious

Original Post:  Be Sure You’re Right, Then Go Ahead

I am an American

I am an American.

I want my elected leaders to read, understand and follow the Constitution of the United States of America; to the letter.

An Embarassment Of Glitches

“Instead of worrying about whether immigrants can learn English, you need to make sure your child can speak Spanish.” – Barack Obama “By opening our borders to illegal immigrants, and pardoning those illegals already here as he plans through executive order, Obama will create millions of new citizens within a few years to help him transform America into a multicultural vacation land for the world’s footloose homeless with free food, housing, education, entertainment, and healthcare as drawing cards.” – Douglas Hertz “At least 71 individuals from the three nations affected by the current Ebola outbreak have either turned themselves in […]

If you’re wondering if our government is friend or foe, wonder no more.

Political cartoonists are some of our most clever people. With simple caricatures and a few words they are able to capture the essence of an important issue facing the people. In my opinion, this cartoon which I borrowed from Zero Hedge, explains perfectly why Americans on Main Street do not feel like the government is working in your best interests. h/t @butifulabsurdt That’s exactly right, isn’t it? The well being of the folks on Main Street was not a fundamental of interest to our central planners in Washington, D.C. Your well being was not a part of their calculus. Instead, […]

The Arrogance of Some High Profile Lawbreakers

The idea that we are all equal under the law is pure horse puckey. That shouldn’t be news to anyone who isn’t brain dead. Justice often goes to who can afford the best lawyer or who is more politically connected. No doubt the family of Mary Jo  Kopechne, for example, have some thoughts on the subject. Most people in America are law-abiding. Even when they don’t like a particular law or even when that believe a law to be unjust, they will generally abide by the law anyway. For these law-abiding folks, it really rubs them raw to see how […]

Why Do Fools Fall In Love?

  “In the United States, Eid also reminds us of the many achievements and contributions of Muslim Americans to building the very fabric of our nation and strengthening the core of our democracy.” – Barack Obama Percentage of U.S. population that is Muslim – .o8% – Wikipedia Try as I might, I just can’t recall any of the Muslim ‘achievements and contributions’ Barry refers to … unless it’s the recent ‘Kill the Jews’ demonstrations held in Chicago, Miami, New York, Boston, and Los Angeles, genocidal soirees sponsored by his dear friends in CAIR … In 2010, James Lewis wondered Why […]

America Is No Longer Feared Or Respected

Make no mistake, I am proud to be an American. I will apologize for that to no one. I am glad I was born here, in the best, the freest, the safest country in the world. We have been involved in conflicts throughout our history, but there has always been one overriding factor that has always kept us safe. Looking back on our history, I am certain mistakes were made. There were probably conflicts in which we were involved that we should have stayed out of. But no one dared strike us on our homeland, for fear of the terrible […]

Open Thread: The ‘Let it Burn” Edition

I thought I’d lead off with something original, and look at a growing mindset in the US…

Let it Burn

FLOTUS Expands The War On Cellulite

“Feeding trash cans is not what’s best for kids.” – Leah Schmidt, President, School Nutrition Association “In response to the low calorie school lunch plan put in place by the First Lady, a video of children singing “We Are Hungry” has surfaced on YouTube.” – Medical News Today The modern Democratic Party is a party of ideas — most of which have been recycled from places like Cuba or China or the old Soviet Union. A Democratic domestic policy always contains at least three components: a ban on what they don’t like (i.e. guns and tobacco), a subsidy for what […]

What’s The Matter With Libs Today?

Elizabeth Warren, the latest left-wing Yankee egghead turned Democratic politician, is so wowing the yeasty-headed crowds out in Prog-Land that they want her to run for President in 2016 — as if the last six years of Marxist mischief-making wasn’t enough. Alas, Lizzie’s is a constituency that won’t be happy until we’re all standing in government breadlines in the rain waiting for our meager rations of moldy socialist cheese: In a speech today to the Nutroots Nation, held befittingly in dystopic liberal paradise of downtown Detroit, non-candidate  and American Indian princess Elizabeth Warren brought down the house. The theme of her […]

Eric Holder’s Civil Wrongs

“There’s a certain level of vehemence, it seems to me, that’s directed at me [and] directed at the president. You know, people talking about taking their country back … There’s a certain racial component to this for some people.” – Eric Holder “Mr. Holder, the one true racist in this dialogue is you. You see everything through the prism of race. You are the racist. You are using racism to cover up the inadequacy of the performance of the president of the United States, and the absolute dereliction of duty in your office. You, sir, are the racist.” – Brad […]

Boehner: Defunding Obama’s Unconstitutional Acts Off the Table.

Hat/Tip to CNSNews. Incredibly, House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) seems to be unwilling to use the Congress’ Constitutional ‘Power of the Purse’ to rein in our lawless President. House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) indicated today that if President Barack Obama takes actions that exceed his constitutional authority, the House of Representatives has no plans to use its own constitutional authority to withhold funding from those actions. At his weekly press briefing, CNSNews.com asked Boehner: “You’ve said you disagree with calls to impeach the president over abuse of power via executive actions. But under the Constitution the House actually has the […]

Obama’s Legacy

Fly Obama’s Friendly Skies With No I.D. — If You’re An Illegal Alien

TSA Allowing Illegals to Fly Without Verifiable ID, Says Border Patrol Union “The aliens who are getting released on their own recognizance are being allowed to board and travel commercial airliners by simply showing their Notice to Appear forms,” NBPC’s Local 2455 Spokesman, Hector Garza, told Breitbart Texas. “This is not the CBP [Customs and Border Protection] or another federal agency renting or leasing an aircraft, these are the same planes that the American public uses for domestic travel. We do not know who these people are, we often have to solely rely on who they say they are, where […]

Obama Hustles America

Does Anybody Care? With Country in Chaos, Obama Shoots Pool, But Turns Down Doobie America’s weathered quite a few emergencies in its 238 years.  And in none of them has a sitting president, Democrat or Republican, been as derelict in his duties as the present inhabitant of the Oval Office.  That dwindling portion of the citizenry which still retains a modicum of common sense can argue until the cows come home as to whether Barack Obama is intentionally committed to the destruction of the nation or is the most incompetent individual ever elected to high office.  It no longer matters.  […]

A Country Without A President

“To think just Monday Democrats were whining over spending $3.3 million to investigate Obama’s IRS scandal. Now Obama actually has the balls to ask for $3.8 billion to throw at his influx of migrant Democrats … If the GOP is dumb enough to give him money they need to take it out of his vacation and party budget.” – JWF Trusting a dyed-in-the-red-wool radical like Barack Obama to secure the border is dumber than expecting a hardcore junkie to secure a medicine cabinet full of vicodin and codeine. Obama and his motley crew of anti-American cockroaches won’t be satisfied until […]

Somebody Out There Still Likes Him??

“There’s going to be a time when MS-13 fires an RPG into an Alexandria [Va.] police car, and [Americans] are going to say, ‘What the hell happened?’” – Roger Noriega “The president is getting regular updates on the situation.” — Josh Earnest With the Mid-East falling into the feculent hands of Islamic terrorists and the U.S. southern border crumbling like cheap cement, it’s a miracle that Barack Obama has thus far escaped being clapped in irons and frog-marched to the detention facility closest to whatever fundraiser or golf course upon which he was apprehended.  We don’t have a president in […]

A Glorious 4th?

A new poll has rated Barack Obama as the worst U.S. president since World War II.  Actually, he’s hands down the worst ever, but why pick nits? “Over the span of 69 years of American history and 12 presidencies, President Barack Obama finds himself with President George W. Bush at the bottom of the popularity barrel,” said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll. If Jonathan Bernstein is right, no one should ever vote for a modern Democrat: Any Democrat in 2009 would have sought a large stimulus package. Any Democrat in 2009 would have made health-care reform […]
