Gather Your Armies

Rick Barber, an Alabama Republican and candidate for Congress, has forced a runoff for the Republican nomination. The runoff is being held on Tuesday, July 13, and I strongly suggest that all Alabamans show up to the polls and exercise their American right to participate in their own governance. It’s our own form of participatory … Continue reading

Lincoln Halts Halter

In a huge victory for Republicans, incumbent Senator Blanche Lincoln (D-AR) has defeated Bill Halter in the primary runoff in Arkansas. She will run against John Boozman (R-AR) in November. Halter was the darling of the ‘progressive’ crowd and the labor unions, who pumped millions of dollars into Arkansas in an attempt to buy the … Continue reading

Vier mehr Tage! Vier mehr Tage!

Okay, so apparently not all of you prepared for the end of WWII the same way I did. I wrote yesterday about why Horst Köhler, the former President of Germany, resigned Monday. In doing so, I quoted the statements that proved to be his undoing, but didn’t translate them from German. So what he said … Continue reading

Obama: Thin-skinned

President Obama went to Capitol Hill Tuesday for a closed-door meeting with Senate Republicans. He was apparently trying to drum up support for his policies, and wasn’t very successful. Sen. Pat Roberts (R-KS) said: “He needs to take a Valium before he comes in and talks to Republicans. He’s pretty thin-skinned.” Sen. Sam Brownback (R-KS) … Continue reading

A Slight Revision

In a recent post, I mentioned that apparently Keynesians are breaking the office windows of democrat representatives and party headquarters. Although I am still sure that the vandals are trying to make a principled economic point (as I explained so cogently earlier), there is at least two politically motivated brick throwers. The brick thrown through … Continue reading

A Well Deserved Break

Well, that didn’t take nearly as long as I had hoped. The reconciliation bill passed (with the changes) and was passed by the House as well, all before 9pm Thursday. I guess they’ll relax Friday, maybe take a sauna, and think about how to best convert America into a progressive socialist oligarchy after the break. … Continue reading

The Fix Needs a Fix

Success! Senate Republicans succeeded in finding something in the senate reconciliation package that the Senate Parliamentarian has ruled needs to be changed. I don’t have all the details yet, but it seems to be something having to do with the other part of the Senate bill that passed Obamacare. You know, the part about student … Continue reading

Irreconcilable Differences

The Senate democrats are trying to get the reconciliation bill passed, exactly as-is. The Senate Republicans are trying to stop this, by trying to change the reconciliation package in some way. In any way. One word would be enough. You see, if the Senate reconciliation package is different in any way from HR4872 then it … Continue reading

Repeal This Bill!

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) has introduced a bill to repeal Obamacare. As she said in her press release: “It’s no secret, President Obama and Democrat leaders have ignored the will of the people and have chosen to ram through their trillion-dollar health care bill despite the American people’s overwhelming objection to it. It’s future generations, … Continue reading

Not the Right Way to Make Your Point

This last Friday, two days before the vote on Obamacare, bricks were thrown through the windows of the Niagara Falls office of Rep. Louise Slaughter (D-NY) and the Rochester offices of the Democratic Party of New York. At about 2:40am Monday morning, just after the passage of Obamacare, the windows of the Tuscon office of … Continue reading
