Raising The Bar For Guilty Verdicts

I thought Aphrodite Jones summed it up best on Hannity when she said that the jurors in the Casey Anthony trial had taken the concept of “reasonable doubt” and extended it to “shadow of a doubt.” If you look up the word “reasonable” in the dictionary, you find: “not exceeding the limit prescribed by reason; not excessive.” In this case, the jurors clearly exceeded the limit prescribed by reason.

The Avaricious Progressive Homo Sapiens

Americans are easy prey when it comes to political distraction debates. Proposed card-check legislation is a distraction. Our obsessive meddling in Middle Eastern countries is a distraction. All these are important issues, but they are merely subcategories of the foundational issue that Americans should be focused on: loss of freedom.

Drill Nowhere, Drill Never

Since the Obamaviks descended upon the nation’s capital in January of 2009, the government has dramatically improved its ability to carry out its two main functions — redistributing wealth and creating crises. However, lest you give them too much credit for their remarkable success in these areas, remember that much of that success was made possible by past actions on the part of progressive Republicans, philosophically confused Republicans and RINOs. 

Van Jones And The American Dream

As I watch events unfolding in Wisconsin, Indiana, Ohio, et al, I wonder how many Americans realize that government employees are demanding rights that exist only in their progressive minds. They have been led to believe that their desires are rights, and that includes the right to have the government take someone else’s property and give it to them simply because they want it.

It Feels So Good

In response to a discussion of a deflationary depression versus an inflationary depression, readers often ask me if a “soft landing” is possible.

Obama the Chess Master

Thomas Paine said that “Government, even in its best state, is but a necessary evil; in its worst state, an intolerable one.” With decades of increasing criminality in all three branches of government, it would be pretty hard to argue with one of the great libertarian thinkers in our country’s history. Read this article for more on the intolerable evil in Washington and how the President plays the game…

The TSA, Beetles and Ecstasy

The Missing Story

While it’s true that slightly more than half of those who voted sent a signal to Washington that they want government to drastically decrease spending, taxes and regulation, the painful reality is that slightly less than half of the voters cast their ballots in favor of Democratic candidates who, with just a few notable exceptions, want to increase spending, taxes and regulation.

The Celebration of Class Warfare

The weather was perfect — 72 degrees and sunny — for the "One Nation Working Together" rally at the Lincoln Memorial on Oct. 2. I was determined to go with an open mind to try to understand what would motivate someone to attend an event sponsored by unions and self-proclaimed socialist and communist groups. Read this article to learn what I found…

A Minority of One

As President Barack Obama continues to transform the United States into a socialist hell, yet another poke in the eye is the National Mediation Board’s recent proposal to make it easier for airline and railroad workers to unionize. But the proposed new rule would require only that a majority of employees who actually vote on the question of unionization would be needed to unionize. Read this article to learn what this means for liberty…

The Great Pretender

The Marxmeister in the White House now says he takes full responsibility for ending the oil mess in the Gulf. Watching his recent performances on the Gulf oil disaster made me think about a monster hit The Platters had in the 50s called “The Great Pretender.” Read this article to learn what makes President Barack Obama The Great Pretender…
