Obama For Pittsburgh Steelers and American Steel

From the USA Today: There’s no more doubt: President Obama says he’s rooting for the Pittsburgh Steelers in Sunday’s Super Bowl. “I wish the (Arizona) Cardinals the best,” the president told reporters at the White House, “but I am a long-time Steelers fan” and a friend of the Rooney family that owns the team. And [...]

Quote Of The Day

From The Austrian Economists: During the inauguration celebration a reporter asked Magic Johnson about President Obama’s plan to replace the White House bowling alley with a White House basketball court and whether or not he will get an invitation to play some hoops with the President. Johnson replied that he would obviously lace up his [...]

Told Ya So

Yesterday, I wrote: “Yes, there was a flub-up in the reading of the oath of office. I’m sure some of the tin-foilers out there will also be stating that “Barack isn’t president because he wasn’t officially sworn in” for the next four years.” And so it begins…

Quote Of The Day

Can’t pass this up… Ezra Klein, on how easy it was to get into the inauguration compared to onto an airplane: We value our politicians much less than we value our planes. And rightly so.

DC Government Got This One Bass-ackwards

The District of Columbia intends to create Prostitution Free Zones during Obama’s inauguration.  From WUSA: District police have placed signs along 5th and I Streets. They read, “Warning, Prostitution Free Zone.” Those who disobey could be fined 300 dollars, and even jailed. But will the city’s plan work? DC City Councilman Jim Graham said officers [...]

I Do Not Think It Means What You Think It Means

On June 23, minor-league baseball’s Brooklyn Cyclones will become the Baracklyn Cyclones. Now, discounting my internal BS meter that suggests that this could be a slight hoax (albeit not one that I care to spend much time fact-checking), I see that they’re apparently minor-league when it applies to semantics as well. One of the festivities: [...]

Obama’s Policies Treading On Hallowed Ground

Now, don’t confuse me with someone who supports the current model of the BCS… But I’m almost as worried about turning over college football to the government as I would be about healthcare — it’s personal. Although… Now that I think about it… His redistributionist policies could bring some 5* recruits to my Boilermakers! I [...]

Social Security: The Betrayal Between Generations

If you think the “bailout from hell” is going to be painful to taxpayers, wait until the bill comes due for Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid. According to Dallas Fed President Richard Fisher, the unfunded liability for Social Security and Medicare sits at an incredible $99.2 trillion. This figure does not account for the myriad [...]

Personal Attack Ad…Against Myself!

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be on the receiving end of a personal attack ad? I have. During the 2006 campaign, I thought it would be fun to write my own personal attack ad…against myself! Like many attack ads, everything I wrote about myself was (is) technically true but lacked [...]

Maybe They Should Call It ‘The Cheese-Maker’

No matter how jaded I get, American “Christians” seem to come up with new ways to make me aghast. The latest CINO (Christian in Name Only) is Sheriff Lott, who is prepared to use a 50 machine gun to keep law and order in what I thought to be the relatively unwarlike Richland County of [...]

Doug Stanhope On Freedom

When I heard that a comedian, Doug Stanhope, had been considering running for President as a Libertarian, I thought it was about time. Who better to highlight just how hopelessly ridiculous the system has become than a comic. Then I heard his material: some of the more depraved comedy I’ve come across– not a criticism, [...]

RIP, George Carlin

Today is a sad day for comedy. While I can’t say that I always agreed with some of his ideas, the simple fact is that George Carlin, through the vehicle of comedy, did an incredible job of making people question the world around them. That questioning is the first step towards having independent thoughts– a [...]
