Larry Correia on Gun Control

Saturday, December 22nd, 2012

I just finished reading Larry Correia’s “An opinion on gun control“, a tour de force attacking the logic and arguments of those who want to control guns. His view on those who want to control guns is damning: In conclusion, basically it doesn’t really matter what something you pick when some politician or pundit starts [...]

Thoughts on the fiscal cliff

Saturday, December 22nd, 2012

Just some quick thoughts on the fiscal cliff… IT’S THE SPENDING, STUPID It’s frustrating that no one is discussing the fact the the Obama plan for deficit reduction actually increases spending with the inclusion of a stimulus package in 2013. Raising taxes and borrowing more money for more stimulus not debt reduction. It’s just more [...]

The Part of the Clackmas Town Center Shooting Story You Probably Missed

Tuesday, December 18th, 2012

As usual, before many facts were known, before the victims were removed from Sandy Hook Elementary, and probably before the bodies were even cold, people on the Left and the MSM (but I repeat myself) were already calling for more gun control laws. It’s this so-called “gun culture” that is causing this death and destruction [...]

Jerry Brown laid down the gauntlet, affirming his commitment to solar energy and saying he would “crush” opponents of solar. “There are going to be screw-ups. There are going to be bankruptcies. There’ll be indictments and there’ll [...]

Tuesday, December 11th, 2012

A selective overview of these pieces can be found here: A Refresher on [...]

Open Thread Question: Did FDR Know the Pearl Harbor Attack Was Coming?

Friday, December 7th, 2012

I’m not normally one who takes conspiracy theories seriously but I have a very open mind about the question: what did FDR know about the Pearl Harbor attack and when did he know it? When people I respect like Judge Andrew Napolitano say he believes that FDR “knew goddamn well” the Japanese were going to [...]

Your Incredibly Stupid Progressive Economic Propaganda for the Day

Wednesday, December 5th, 2012

There is so much economic ignorance/stupidity in this video (below), I wouldn’t even know where to begin. John Maynard Keynes himself would probably be embarrassed by this video courtesy of the California* Federation of Teachers and narrated by the great economist of our time Ed Asner. I don’t have much else to say about this [...]
