I’m Not Saying… I’m Just Insinuating.

I’m sure one has nothing to do with the other: Wikipedia: In October 2008, Cuban started Bailoutsleuth.com as a grassroots, online portal for oversight over the US government 700 billion dollar “bailout” of financial institutions. And today: Dallas Mavericks owner Cuban charged with insider trading Entrepreneur Mark Cuban, owner of the National Basketball Association’s Dallas […]

Justice Department: Indicting Spitzer is Not in the “Public Interest”

Last March New York governor Eliot Spitzer resigned because of his involvement in a prostitution scandal. This is all well and good; I was among many others who called for Spitzer to resign. But should his resignation from office be enough? I think not. Apparently federal prosecutors disagree. Washington Post, November 7, 2008 Former New […]

Porker Steps Down

In some worlds, this would be seen as good news: A passing of the baton happened Friday. Sen. Robert Byrd, D-W. Va., announced he will step aside as chairman of the Senate Appropriations Committee. … Byrd is 90. He has served in the Senate since 1959 – the most senior member of the Senate. It […]

Stevens Convicted

40 years of corruption down the drain. Might as well have joined the f’in Peace Corps: Alaska Sen. Ted Stevens was convicted of seven corruption charges Monday in a trial that threatened to end the 40-year career of Alaska’s political patriarch in disgrace. The verdict, coming barely a week before Election Day, increased Stevens’ difficulty […]

A slight profundity

A question was asked of me recently: “Why don’t libertarians and real conservatives win elections”. Simple really. True libertarians and conservatives share the same electoral disadvantage: True libertarians and real conservatives, CANNOT win electorally, in a climate where everyone is allowed to vote; and that “everyone” includes the huge politically created classes (both underclass, and […]

The Credit Crisis: A Bipartisan “Achievement”

First, President Bush in 2002 pushes for increased home “ownership” regardless of creditworthiness. Second, despite what Nancy Pelosi says, the Democrats most certainly did their part to help President Bush succeed in his “ownership society.” These Democrats who scream that this credit crisis is a result of lax regulations didn’t much appreciate the regulators when […]

Welcome to the U.S.S.A.

For those of us who value the concept of life, liberty, and property, there doesn’t seem to be much reason to be optimistic for America’s future. Last week we saw one government (taxpayer) bail out after another. The price tag seems to grow a couple of hundred billion dollars each day (depending on which figures […]

If this turns out to be true, this could be the most damning scandal exposed of any of the candidates seeking to be the next president or vice president. According to an article in The New York Post, Sen. Barack Obama told Iraqi leaders to delay a U.S. troop withdrawal agreement until after the presidential […]

Inconvenient Convention Facts and Fictions Exposed

Now that the conventions are over, it’s time to separate the facts from the fiction. With so much misinformation being peddled by the political campaigns (not to mention rumors spread through e-mail, the internet and the MSM), this is very often a difficult task. My approach is to be skeptical until I am satisfied that […]

Biden And Pay For Play

First, a disclaimer. I’m not singling out Joe Biden for the below piece for any reason other than that he’s now become a vice-presidential candidate. I firmly believe that situations like the below are quite common in our government, at all levels. That being said, this one is particularly conspicuous. Joe Biden, breaking ranks with […]
