How to stop ISIS? Send in the social workers!

If you’ve had some discomfort with the way DC has been handling the war on terror lately, the recent words of State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf should make you run for the medicine cabinet — or Walgreen’s — for more Maalox: State Department Spokesperson Marie Harf told Chris Matthews tonight that we cannot win this war with ISIS by killing them. She said we have to get to the root…

Obama. On EVERY FRICKIN’ CHANNEL …

I am sure many of you rushed home last night, cleared your schedule, and camped out in front of the TV awaiting breathlessly the latest pronouncements of our Dear Leader.  I am also sure that quite a few Americans turned on the TV and asked ‘Why is the Devil from that Bible miniseries talking to Congress?’. Yes, we were once again blessed with that yearly televised demonstration of how our…

McCrory on right track re: amnesty. (Now, about those GOPers in Congress ..)

We’ve had our issues with a lot of decisions made by this governor.  But we do have to give him kudos for his positions on illegal immigration.  In 2013, he resisted General Assembly efforts (led by Thom Tillis)  to water down e-verify citizenship requirements for the state’s employers. Gov. Pat has made another wise move on the amnesty front by joining a 17-state coalition  (led by Texas) challenging Barry’s executive…

BOHICA Alert: Jacking up our electric bills to save us from the ‘horror’ of carbon dioxide

You expel CO² every time you exhale. It’s found in your sodas and beer. It’s found in baking soda.  The word is that that about the only risks related to carbon dioxide come when you put a bag over your head or seal yourself up in a tent.   Logic and science, be damned.  The EPA and the lefty hordes are unleashing new regulations that are expected to jack up our…

O-Care spending masks true economic nightmare

A new report out there suggests that spending on ObamaCare was about the only thing preventing our economy from showing negative economic growth for the first quarter of 2014.  Check this out from Reuters: As the U.S. economy teetered on the brink of contraction in the first quarter, one thing stood out. Healthcare spending increased at its fastest pace in more than three decades. That surge is attributed to the implementation of…

Give away The Internet? Why, Yes ICANN.

Algore invented it.  Now, Big Barry is giving it away.   Investors Business Daily has the details:  Error 404: U.S. officials plan to relinquish federal control over the administration of the Internet to something called the “global Internet community,” which is full of tyrants to whom the free flow of information is a threat. In the wake of the NSA surveillance scandal, some might not be inclined to defend federal involvement…

US House Republicans and those ObamaCare votes

All of us have heard the spin plenty of times from our “favorite” GOP member of the US House. Republicans have voted 30 — no, 40 — make that, 50 times — to repeal ObamaCare. Usually it’s from a Republican member trying to defend himself or herself from not going along with efforts led by Mark Meadows and Ted Cruz to defund ObamaCare. Democrats have thrown around the 30, 40,50…

1979 is calling. It wants its President Back.

The 1970s were a hellish decade for  this country.  Inflation out the wazoo. Skyrocketing gas prices. Oil embargoes.  Record unemployment.  Communist aggression rampant around the globe. The rise of radical Islamists. An exploding welfare state.  Bell-bottom jeans.  Hippies. Disco. Sure, That 70s Show made it look like a fun time to live in.  But for those of us old enough to remember it — not many want to go back….

BarryO’s latest offensive in his War on Work

As we sink deeper into the Obama Era, it is becoming more apparent that “Dear Leader” does not want people starting businesses, working hard, and making their own money to feed and clothe themselves and their families. We’ve got record unemployment.  BarryO, Dingy Harry, Kay Hagan and the rest of their accomplices pushed through this ObamaCare.  It provides one hell of a disincentive to expand your business, give your employees…

GOP-controlled US House passes debt ceiling lift with almost NO Republican help

The Republican-controlled House of Representatives passed yet another increase in the federal debt ceiling by a margin of 221-201.  Of those 201 NO votes, 199 of them were Republican.  Boehner only managed to coax 28 Republicans to go along with him in doing the dirty deed.   I like the take ZeroHedge had on the matter:  […]Considering that the vast majority of Republicans voted against John Boehner’s latest “plan” to do the…
