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 […]

WANTED: Political Commentary From a Failed Leader

Newt Gingrich became house Speaker in 1994, on the heels of what they called a “revolution.” He was hailed as Ronald Reagan’s ideological heir, and came forth with an ambitious agenda called the “Contract With America.” What was in in it? Plenty of great things like term limits in congress and a balanced budget amendment. […]

Immigration Nightmare Isn’t Over

Immigration Nightmare Isn’t Over

President Bush’s amnesty bill was defeated by a national uprising that is unprecedented. But make no mistake: congress has NOT gotten the message. They are simply waiting for the American people to let their guard down so they can sneak through a bill that President Bush will sign. It’s the most insane thing I’ve seen. […]

Be Forewarned: Thompson’s No Conservative

Oyster points out how conservative attempts to repudiate president Bush reek of fraud. In so doing, he cites articles by Greenwald and Dreher. There are serious and valid points made here. Conservative commentator Rod Dreher points out how nobody seemed to have the courage to challenge Bush when his approval ratings were high. Dreher Writes: […]
