I Knew There Was Something Fishy

February 5, 2008

I Knew There Was Something Fishy If you’re a G.O.P. primary voter, chances are you’ve had someone nudging you in the direction of John McCain.  If you’re conservative, you probably don’t feel very comfortable pulling a lever for him. You’ve probably been told that former Massachussets Governor Mitt Romney isn’t a conservative, and  that while  […]

Kudos to Governor Elect Jindal

December 11, 2007

Shortly after Governor- elect Jindal won the 2007 gubernatorial race, concerns arose about the possibility of “hold overs” from the Blanco administration. Some worried that Mike Olivier, Governor Blanco’s economic development secretary, might be allowed to stay in the Jindal administration. Olivier had publicly expressed an interest in retaining his position. “I voted for change, […]

What’s So Great About Fred Thompson?

November 25, 2007

I know I keep coming back to this, but the more I see this guy on T.V., the more I’m confused by conservative drooling over Fred Thompson. As I’ve watched him over the past few months, I haven’t been impressed. And while I think he may be capable of winning the Republican nomination, I have […]

Jindal and the Farm Bill Vote

August 5, 2007

I’ve been asked about Bobby Jindal’s vote on the farm bill, which is said to have raised taxes. True, it raised taxes on foreign owned companies operating in the United States. I’ll explain the significance of the latter point in a moment. But first, here’s some thing from National Review’s the corner: [ad#Google Adsense] The […]

Scooter Pardoned

July 2, 2007

I have no doubt that Scooter Libby lied under oath and lied to the F.B.I. Plenty of people are upset about it, as some were upset by Clinton’s pardons. Let me ask a simple question: what kind of people get presidential pardons? [ad#Google Adsense] Well, criminals, that’s who! Specifically, criminals who are political hacks. I […]

Gas Prices, Part II

June 21, 2007

Some were critical about my rant concerning gas prices. There are some thick heads out there who think that because I complain it must mean I’m some communist, pro-regulation, wacko. So I’ll just say it- the Democrats’ $29 billion tax hike on big oil (which has been scrapped) was pure insanity. It would have made […]

With Supporters Like These…

You have to wonder about this YOUTUBE vid, which is a “dedication” to Barack Obama. One could view the video as having a subliminal message: “Obama supporters are just shallow, syncophantic women who think hes sooooo cute and have no knowledge of the issues.” [ad#Google Adsense] They’re also pretty damn hot! Is this chick simply […]

Why Do I Bother- More About Gas Prices

June 17, 2007

I got a comment on my previous post that deserves another post. Predictably, someone accused me of “not trusting the free market.” Here’s the comment that was posted: I don’t even know what party I am in now when I hear Conservatives that do not trust the market. [ad#Google Adsense] I ask this person to […]

Can We Get Serious About Gas Prices?

June 16, 2007

–by Chad E. Rogers I was kicking around Human Events Online today and came across an article called “Trust the Market.” The article is essentially an adulatory review of a book by John Lott, which is a free-market tome with some familiar, if stale, talking points about gas prices. [ad#Google Adsense] The article addresses the […]

Go To Hell, Dubya

June 14, 2007

by Chad E. Rogers The title says it all. The American people have spoken: the president’s approval rating is now 29%. The approval rating for congress is 23%. There’s no leadership in this country. The conservative coalition is fractured. [ad#Google Adsense] Liberals, conservatives, and libertarians all loathe this president. Indeed, he is a uniter, not […]
