Why do lefty bloggers and a sour grapes senator want to divorce Ronald Reagan from the Tea Party?

Who would have predicted that a retired Republican Senator from Utah would become the left wing’s leading expert on Ronald Reagan and the Tea Party movement? No one, I’m sure. Nevertheless, it happened last week when some lefty bloggers venerated Bob Bennett’s recent sour grapes snark-fest to Greta Van Susteren as if he’d been channeling Che Guevara […]

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? […]

If this is a recovery, I want the recession back!

Unemployment ticked up again in January, but no worries. This isn’t a recession. This is a recovery. Eighteen months recovering and counting. Nevertheless, I thought it over and decided that I want the recession back. These recoveries are murder. Shouldn’t recovery mean something good is about to happen, like … I don’t know… recovering? Apparently not, and don’t bother going for the dictionary; it won’t […]

In a sharp turn in Obama administration policy, the White House announced that they will be yanking concessions to Republicans by closing the eastern Gulf of Mexico […]

King of the world wants you to drive a moped for Gaia

Via Moonbattery. Apparently it’s worth a cool million for James Cameron to defeat Proposition 23 just so he can sleep securely at night knowing that the California proletariat continue to sacrifice jobs, convenience, and comfort at altar of the discredited and debunked socialist con-job, Climate Change. As if there was every any doubt before, this is solid proof that Cameron possesses more chutzpah […]

The inexorable spread of despair

H/T The Truth.  It’s chilling to watch economic darkness advance across the map like a medieval epidemic — a graphic representation of an economy most definitely not stimulated by President Obama’s  wasteful and expensive snake oil. When will the clowns in Washington wake up and realize that they are putting the brakes on economic growth by interfering in the private […]

Graph proves stimulus is a winner!

How kind of the Peoples’ Cube to show us all that, silly us, there really is no recession! The economy is booming! Who would have ever thought that buying road signs and solar panels and funding stupid programs with nearly a trillion imaginary dollars would rev the economy like this? And that’s not all. Flush with success and with his detractors running […]
