The Comcast/NBC Merger: Oodles of Government Booty (if You Qualify)

2011 January 22

The process of watching our citizenry slowly succumb to the Almighty power of the U.S. Government is at once frightening and fascinating – we of course notice the train wrecks (Obamacare) and 10-car pileups (the castration of SB 1070), but let’s not forget those little nails that are pounded, daily and ceaselessly, into the burial box of American ingenuity and initiative.

They do the most damage, after all, because they just don’t seem important enough to worry about when you take them one at a time.

“Feelings” – Care2 Celebrates The Imam we Hardly Knew

2011 January 20

I’m not sure why Jamie Glazov and Joseph Klein thought it right to recently savage our ecumenical, Big-Tent-For-All-Religions friend, Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, but it’s a good thing the bloggers at Care2 were around to set them straight.

How else were we to find out what a sympathetic, multi-layered individual the Holy Man really is?

More Help From The Nanny State: Your Minutes Are High, Your Toilet Paper Supply Is Low.

2011 January 3

In the latest effort to save ourselves from, well, us, our friends at Care2 have posted a nifty little petition you can sign if you are fed up with your cell phone minutes running out because you are too stupid or lazy to figure it out on your own: read more…

The Psychotic World-View of Care2: Save The Animals, Scrape Those Unwanted Fetuses

2010 December 20

It must have been the cute puppies.

I mean, everyone knows that women are suckers for the big round eyes of a baby animal – it must bring out some kind of hard-wired maternal chemical that men don’t possess in any kind of quantity.

Why else would a very Conservative lady friend of mine send me a Christmas e-card from one of the most morally obtuse organizations on the planet, Care2? She had to have been hypnotized.

Actually I am glad she sent it – because all you need is one view of this whacked-out leftist website to understand what happens when reason is sublimated to world view…the pieces don’t fit together very well…it’s a smiling soccer-mom trip to intellectual hell.

Real-World ObamaCare Scare in AZ

2010 November 13

In my “real” (meaning income-producing) life I run the Southwestern hub for a Midwest-based national corporation. Actually I just manage a small collection site, but I like the way that first sentence sounds – and it reads better on E-Harmony, too. read more…

Yusuf Islam’s Greatest “Hit”: Riding The Peace Train And the Fatwa Against Salman Rushdie

2010 October 31

The absolute, club-footed idiocy of asking Yusuf Islam (aka Cat Stevens) to perform “Peace Train” at the Jon Stewart/Stephen Colbert “Rally to Restore Sanity” has been well-remarked upon. You can only shake your head and cackle in disbelief. It’s the perfect poison Halloween treat. read more…

Here’s What’s Wrong With America: Not Enough Taxpayer-Funded Urban Fishing Opportunities

2010 October 14

Gawd, fishin’ sure is fun! Sittin’ out in the boat with a buddy or two, talkin’ smack, crackin’ open some cold ones…what is really better than that?

Besides, casting for Crappies is in many ways an act of pure patriotism – citizens bankrolling Government, if you will.

Think of the tax revenues just a couple of anglers and one boat can create: You’ve got the boat  registration and license plate fees, the fishing licenses, plus the “sinners penalty” on all the booze and cheap cigars.  And so far you haven’t even rented a cabin. Of course if you do, that’s taxed, not to mention the various “environmental ” user addenda, depending on where you wet your line: There are surcharges on everything from your equipment to the type of prey you’re trying to land. It’s a bureaucratic bonanza!

Not that you have any right to complain, buster. Some families can’t even afford to fish. Why, with the dwindling value of food stamps and rental assistance these days, how are the underprivileged supposed to join us on our public waterways? I mean, what about the kids?

The President to His Staff: “Situation Untenable, Cut Defense Spending”

2010 October 6

From the The Heritage Foundation’s Morning Bell newsletter of October 5th, 2010:

“Yesterday afternoon, President Barack Obama told his Economic Recovery Advisory Board: ‘I realize that we are facing an untenable fiscal situation. What I won’t do is cut back on investments like education.’ Meanwhile what our Commander in Chief is very willing to cut is defense. In Bob Woodard’s new book Obama’s War , the President is reported telling Secretary of State Hillary Clinton: ‘I am not spending a trillion dollars’ on war costs. And he told Vice President Joe Biden exactly why: ‘I can’t lose the whole Democratic Party.’ “

Yes indeed, despite the Dems insistence on flinging massive amounts of taxpayer moola into the sinkhole of public education, there seems to be a negligible link between scholarly performance and funding largess.

The Latest Greatest AZ Lawsuit: Federales Versus the Citizens of Maricopa County

2010 September 2

There are lots of targets on Arizona’s back these days. And no shortage of archers itching for a shot at the bullseye.

Everyone knows about SB1070 and the beating it took at the hands of judge Susan Bolton; and of course there’s the recent inclusion of the law into a human rights report from the Justice Department to the United Nations Human Rights Commissioner – evidently there is no better way to cleanse America’s many and sundry sins than to submit our evil doings directly to the august and sage diplomats of Geneva. read more…

From the Frenetic and Overheated Mind of A “Typical” Adolescent: Nick Nampion’s Top 10 Fun Videos

2010 August 16

This post will automatically beg the question: Why would anyone care what some 14-year-old kid likes in the realm of comedy and music videos? Do we really want to view his top-10 lineup? Aren’t there more important things to waste our time with?

Well, I would posit that it’s good to at least know what our adolescent (in this case male) population views as valuable and important. After all, they will be adults at least some time in the near future, and part of what they carry into society comes from what they view and listen to and share with their friends.
