Kimberly Guilfoyle’s Rant Against Millennials Was Not About Millennials

I saw popping up in my Facebook feed a discussion on Kevin’s Facebook regarding the comments that Fox News’ Kimberly Guilfoyle made during a forum on what Democrats offer young women, a typically liberal voting bloc. Her controversial comments noted that she believed “millennial” women (and men, as she later clarified on Twitter) should stay […]

Comment of the Day

The following “Comment of the Day” from Rebecca was in response other comments responding to Brad’s satirical* post entitled: ‘Wendy’ Condemns Chick-fil-A President Remarks On Gay Marriage. 1. Attn: Bible-thumpers: If you haven’t read your Holy Book in the original un-pointed Hebrew and Aramaic, you have no idea what the Bible actually says. Also, if […]

Comment of the Day: “Education” Edition

Re: “Don’t Forget Your Homework…or Your Miranda Card” Liberalism in the United States has, over the past forty years, been usurped by the socialist agenda. Our public schools are little more than indoctrination camps for the pacification of future generations. At the same time, conservatism in the United States has been usurped by war-hawks and […]

Comment Of The Day

From regular reader Akston: Emotions are the engine which often drives our efforts. Rationality is the steering wheel. Having one without the other is always problematic. Agreed. And as we’ve seen, this tends to be the case with modern American democratic politics.

Comment Of The Day

This is actually a comment at Hit & Run, but I hadn’t seen this juxtaposition before. The other thing I always find hilarious is how so many anti-immigration Republicans are so anti-union, when they use the same arguments against immigrants that unions use against non-union workers. In both cases, the impetus is the same: “I’ve […]

Comment of the Day: The ‘Why Politics Sucks’ Edition

Re: Rand Paul Under Attack from the Left for his ‘Lunch Counter Libertarianism’ This is why politics sucks. When you actually consider what the significance of Paul’s very nuanced view on this is and then juxtapose over what his potential duties as Senator would be, you quickly come to the correct conclusion that this matter […]

Comment Of The Day

Walter, commenting on Doug’s post about legal challenges to the health care bill: The outcome is not as important, one might reason, as it is to exhaust this means of redress by law. It needs to be clear to the people that law has failed so that political redress will be urgently sought. That failing… […]

Is The Free Market Democratic?

In my post on whether America is ungovernable, one comment from CJS stuck out. It illustrates what I think is a common misconception of the average consumer, who sees a Starbucks on every corner, chooses between Microsoft and Apple for their operating system, and chooses whether to shop at the Super Wal-Mart or Costco each […]

Comment of the Day

Taken from a comment from SWilliams in a discussion following Brad’s Quote of the Day post (posted June 29, 2009) concerning John Edwards’ sex tape: “You can feel sorry for the first few sheep slaughtered but then you must start to question the others for staying in line.”

Comment of the Day: A Welcome Voice from Liberty Papers Past

Re: Mancow gets waterboarded It’s always a treat to hear from Eric, the founder of The Liberty Papers. Its comments like this one which make me miss his “grumbles.” This comment was in response to a discussion sparked by Stephen Gordon’s post concerning waterboarding: Interesting discussion. Chris has a very valid point about altering the […]

Comment of the Day : “So I’m an Ass” Edition

Re: Presenting the Latest Nominees for the Ramos-Compean Medal of Valor You are a real piece of work. Keep drinking the Kool-aid. Do you even know what you are speaking about? Apparently you enjoy your drugs and despise anyone who would delay your supply from reaching. That is the only logical reason why you would […]

Comment Of The Day

Yesterday, I linked an article about Obama “challenging” his cabinet to find $100M to cut from the budget. I suggested it would have to grow considerably to even be a drop in the bucket. One commenter named John suggested that he should do that every day for the rest of his term, and we might […]
