Death Throes?

I said the Obama campaign was flailing – maybe I was wrong. It looks more like death throes: Via Buzzfeed: Obama deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter suggested that Mitt Romney may be a criminal on a conference call with reporters this morning about a Boston Globe report that shows that Romney stayed at Bain Capital…

Site Note

All, and especially new commenters, if you post a comment and it doesn’t show right away, it may be stuck in the spam filter. There are some that are getting snagged that shouldn’t be. We seem to be getting hit with a lot lately. I’m working on it, not as fast as I’m working on…

TRNL Moves Up a Notch

I know that I probably have something to apologize for…but when one is just this awesome, one struggles to find a flaw. I mean, I’m so awesome that The Most Interesting Man in the World dresses as me for Halloween…after all, anybody can be diversionary and dishonest but when you toss in pompous on top,…

Government Without Constraints…

…knows no limits: A handful of local officials in California who say the housing bust is a public blight on their cities may invoke their eminent-domain powers to restructure mortgages as a way to help some borrowers who owe more than their homes are worth. Investors holding the current mortgages predict the move will backfire…

In Dicta

We lost. I’ve been studying the majority opinion on Obamacare and there are no two ways around it – supporters of limited government and the Constitution lost a battle to turn back the tide of “progressivism” in a big way. What is so stunning is not that we lost – because populist “progressive” programs have…

The Tommy Flanigan Court

I have had the opportunity to read over the opinions in today’s ruling. Those of Ginsberg are shocking in their anti- constitutional content. If you think Roberts’ opinion opens us up to massive government control and intrusion, Ginsberg’s is absolutely jaw-dropping in its scope and content. Justice Ginsberg clearly is of the opinion that a…

Rule 5: Hope and Change

I’m headed back to the good ole USA today for a couple of weeks of R&R and will be off-line and on airplanes for large chunks of time over the next 24 hours – but before I go, I wanted to leave you guys a little bonus, a veritable present on this Constitutional Overturn Eve…

Utah Receives Wisdom From The Oracle

Could it be? Many have questioned why the press seems to be all over The One lately. Being the warrior-king that I am, I have great affection for my subjects and will go to all ends to answer their questions. So I donned my Spartan man-skirt (some call it a tunic) and summited Mount Olympus…

Same Old, Same Old

“Progressives” are the same the world over and our western capitalist societies aren’t helping. Our western educational systems are creating armies of future “progressives” by turning out hordes of graduates with worthless degrees and mountains of educational loan debt. When you have large segments of the youth population who have spent several years getting a…

Observable Cues

Over at NewsBusters the token conservative at MSNBC, former Florida congressman Joe Scarborough, is quoted as blaming conservatives for Trayvon Martin’s death: Al Sharpton and Lawrence O’Donnell are not the only ones on MSNBC cynically exploiting the tragic death of Trayvon Martin. On his Morning Joe program today, Joe Scarborough said that conservatives are “somehow…

The Important Things

The Senate Democrats can’t find time to pass a budget but thank goodness they have time to deal with the major crisis facing the country today…bounties for hits in the NFL: Sen. Dick Durbin is setting up a Judiciary Committee hearing about bounties in professional football and other major sports in the wake of news…

Extreme Poverty

David French at NRO’s The Corner writes: The rate of extreme poverty is 6.7 percent — higher than at any time since 1975 — and the rate is still climbing. Of course our version of extreme poverty is nothing like what one sees in Ethiopia, Bangladesh, or elsewhere, but it is poverty nonetheless. And Zeller…

Happy Valentine’s Day :)

I know I sometimes ruffle feathers around here, but it has never been my intent to willfully hurt anyone’s feelings. Please know that I truly love all of you boys. I love Dusty, because I hadn’t chatted with him for quite some time and I had missed him. I love Hockey because he is very…

This day in history…11/4/1979

In 1979, an Islamic revolutionary government overthrew Muhammad Reza Shah Pahlevi of Iran. When the exiled shah was admitted to the US for medical treatment, a crowd of about 500 seized the US embassy in Tehran, demanding the shah’s extradition. US President Jimmy Carter halted Iranian oil imports and froze Iranian assets, but his diplomatic…
