Porkulus price tag: Around $400,000 per made-up job

UPDATE: Linked by The Astute Bloggers… THANKS! According to the Congressional Budget Office (CBO), the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, also known as Porkulus, bought us between 1.3 and 3.5 million “saved or created” jobs for about $229,000 to $586,000 each. Why don’t we just split the difference and figure we paid $400,000 per job? […]

Planned Parenthood’s 2009 abortion toll highest ever

Does this mean that dosing children with hormones, condoms, masturbation lessons, and fruit-flavored lubricants isn’t such a brilliant idea after all? Who would have known? Planned Parenthood Federation of America recently posted on its website what it calls its service numbers for 2009. This document, dated February 2011, shows Planned Parenthood affiliates nationwide did 332,278 […]

Baghdad demands $1 billion and an apology from the U.S.

  Someone once told me about a cardiac arrest survivor who thanked the Good Samaritan who administered CPR by sending him a bill for his ruined shirt. I don’t remember anything else, except thinking at the time that I had heard it all. Well I was wrong. At least that jerk didn’t demand an apology, too. The Baghdad city […]

Egypt allows Iran to import terror through the Suez Canal

  For some reason, the news that two Iranian warships will chug their way, unhindered, through the Suez Canal for the first time since throat-cutting theocrats garroted the nation over thirty years ago, makes me think of Norman Rockwell’s Hitler-era painting “Freedom from Fear.” Rockwell painted it during a time when fear wore jackboots and swastikas, but, sadly, the image is a timeless: Parents and their sleeping children sharing a […]

Truth is Not a Priority to Unhinged Palin Haters

My latest post on Newsreal Blog. Apparently the crack investigative journalists at Us Weekly and Time Magazine are in such a lather to post something unflattering about Sarah Palin, they can’t spare the time to make sure their sources aren’t, to put it politely, full of bull. Yes, even after last month’s shriek-fest — in […]

Chris Rock: Tea partiers are “crazy” and “insane” racists

  Snark alert. (I’m not proud of it, but sometimes I can’t help it.) Well, I don’t know about you, but I am all anticipation for the next issue of Esquire! Especially now that Politico has released this teasing little nugget from their exclusive interview with renowned social commentator and silver-tongued child behavior specialist, Chris Rock — in which he […]

Reagan redux? Really? Obama silences Voice of America broadcasts to Chinese dissidents

Unbelievable. President Obama — who some are determined to cast as a Ronald Reagan Redux — doesn’t feel Chinese dissidents need to hear anything that hasn’t been approved by their communist jailers. So, after 42 years, he’s cutting off short-wave Voice of America broadcasts into Tibet, western Xinjiang Province, and other points beyond bamboo curtain. The Obama administration will cancel shortwave radio broadcasts […]

Ashton Kutcher: “Poop face” George Bush “doesn’t like me very much”

Unbelievable. It seems that Ashton Kutcher occupied the same Super Bowl box as former President George W. Bush last Sunday, and now Ashton Kutcher is very displeased. Apparently he did NOT receive the level of solicitude that he expects from the usual sundry peasants who enter his orbit… you know, the typical riff-raff like former presidents of the United States. So now, he’s going to make us all miserable […]

Marriage is good for you!

In honor of National Marriage Week (February 7-14), the Heritage Foundation assures us that the data is in and — in case there was any doubt — married families are healthier and happier.  Most people know that eating well and exercising regularly leads to better health. What some people may not know, however, is that […]
