Scott Walker said Thursday that his experience taking on thousands of protesters in his state helped prepare him to take on terrorists across the world. The likely… Read more »

Minimum Wage Chickenhawks, Part II (Guest Post)

By 35 Comments 744 views

Our president and his lefty pals are at it again. Now that Obamacare’s failure is all but an historical fact, the president has done exactly what you’d expect him to do – take a laserlike focus on his signature law and dedicate every available resource and use every ounce of political capital he has to… Read more »

Wal-Mart and Minimum Wage Chicken Hawks [Reader Post]

By 40 Comments 943 views

Job killing leftists have chalked up another victory. Wal-Mart was looking to build three stores in Washington, DC, but the prostitutes serving Big Labor, aka the DC City Council, voted 8-5 to chase them away. What this came in the form of was a “Living Wage Bill”, which was actually specifically targeted toward Wal-Mart. The… Read more »

As Scandalpalooza rolls on, Jonah Goldberg wrote about this particular gem on how the Democrats are responding to the IRS scandals So the @GOP has FOIAed the IRS. How original. And political.

The Unions Aren’t Completely to Blame for this One… [Reader Post]

By 15 Comments 614 views

Yes, you read that headline correctly, and this will probably draw a lot of friendly fire. First off, any of my regular readers know that I have no love for the unions. I’ve argued previously that public employee unionization is mostly unnecessary, and I’d just as soon see the same plague that killed the Twinkie… Read more »

Maybe it’s time to drop the picket signs and pick up a copy of The Road to Serfdom [Reader Post]

By 84 Comments 1,473 views

It was with great interest that I watched Facebook catch fire with support of the calls for picketing and sick-outs at Wal-Mart stores across the country on Black Friday. From what I could tell, most of those supporting the calls were liberals who attacked the company with claims that it doesn’t pay “a living wage”, “exploits” its workers, or owes its workers health care. I even saw one fantastical claim that a majority of Wal-Mart employees are on food stamps.

Left wingers are animals [Reader Post]

By 152 Comments 1,532 views

I don’t know how else to describe them. Left wingers are animals. They whine about their rights- their rights to scream, their rights to yell, their rights to harass, their right to demand that everyone else pay to support them. And it is a one way street.

They’re not content to disagree with Sarah Palin. They try to shout her down.

Arrogance Incarnate – Obama and his union friends… [Reader Post]

Life not fair. Nor for that matter is it unfair. It simply is. It’s not fair or unfair that the lion feasts on the slowest zebra or that the penguin who leaps into the ocean at just the wrong moment becomes dinner for an Orca. Life is life… fair doesn’t come into play.

Fair is a fundamentally human concept that is defined by a lack of preference or favoritism and or injustice.

Despite its subjective nature, fairness is a word that the left loves to bring to what should be an objective realm, politics.
