Obama’s jaw-dropping hypocrisy on energy

Jennifer Rubin at the Washington Post does the job that I was incapable of doing yesterday…and does it far better. The Post reports: “President Obama on Wednesday will call for a one-third cut in oil imports by 2020, part of a plan he says will reduce U.S. dependence on foreign petroleum. With rising gasoline prices…

Money, Money, Money, Money, Money…

…mo-naaay! Some people do bad things with it. One of the most powerful substances in the world is…money. Money, or the withholding of it, is used by our politicians to promote or discourage activities that they feel inclined to get involved in (tax breaks, withholding federal highway funds), they also use it to buy off…

Whistling past the graveyard…

…on our way to World War III. If only…we could sit down at a table with the Germans and run through all their complaints and claims with a pencil, this would greatly relieve all tension. –          Neville Chamberlain, 1937 How horrible, fantastic, incredible it is that we should be digging trenches and trying on gas-masks…

Off with their heads!!!

Repeating their mantra just like the Queen of Hearts in Alice in Wonderland, the Left frequently calls for the government to “soak the rich” with taxes to solve our budget problems.  Liberals believe that all we have to do is eat the rich and our stomachs will be full. Off with their heads!!! Because it…

Are we always for democracy? Part II

A few weeks back, I asked if the USA should always be supportive of democracy in Middle Eastern “revolts” or we should support what is in the best interest of America instead. Given the geo-political make-up of the countries that have been/are in open revolt, it seems clear that the apparently viral  “democracy” movements in…

I’m baaaaack!

In what can only qualify as a surreal experience, I was having coffee and watching Glenn Beck on FOX in my flat at 6 a.m. in Edinburgh. Beck raises a good question based on the contradictory positions of our current administration: Oil prices are high, we have recoverable resources but the government prevents drilling by…

From Reverend Robby

Full Term Waiting, waiting and then more waiting, light contractions, then the heavy ones, then the water breaks and …The Delivery!! Each month, each new day , every contraction proclaimed that the “Big Day” was getting closer. Then when the water broke and the heavy contractions started you knew it would not be long. No,…

It ain’t about “optics”…

To go along with my last post that asserted that Obama is a failed president – even the LA Times is dancing around the edge of saying the same thing. ‘Sire, the peasants are revolting!’ Obama’s amazing problem with political optics “Sire,” the nobleman urgently reports to the throne, “the peasants are revolting!” “Phewee!” the…

Conflation and Inflation

Greetings from Ye Olde Country…I’m posting from Edinburgh on something that caught my eye and drew my ire in the news today. It was this little snippet of an interview of NFL/Minnesota Viking running back, Adrian Peterson (via Drudge and TwinCities.com). Mr. Peterson says, and I quote: “The players are getting robbed. They are,” Peterson…

Snake dies, PETA protests ensue…

Sorry, I know that we are supposed to be talking politics but I saw this in the Daily Mail and just couldn’t resist… Snake dies from silicone poisoning after biting model’s breast during photoshoot It should have been an alluring photoshoot between two of nature’s beautiful creatures as a model wrapped herself in a snake.…

Brave Sir Robin

AllahPundit over at Hot Air has a note on how the Democrat Fleebaggers from Wisconsin are now talking up how brave they were to vote present and run away. “Many in the crowd wore buttons or held signs bearing admiring nicknames for the group: the ‘Fighting 14,’ the ‘Fab 14′ or, simply, ‘the Wisconsin 14.’…

Rule 5 Friday – Gemma Arterton
