New York Times: Hillary broke the law

From the New York Times:

— Hillary Rodham Clintonexclusively used a personal email account to conduct government business as secretary of state, State Department officials said, and may have violated federal requirements that officials’ correspondence be retained as part of the agency’s record.

SpongeBob vs. Fifty Shades of Grey

I'm a little disappointed the movie '50 Shades of Grey' is slightly ahead of the latest SpongeBob theater entry in box office revenues. I sense a bias against sea sponges. This will not stand! I'll be proud of this country when sea sponges get equal status with poorly-written, second rate softporn

Obama's Rules of Political Correctness (a condensed list)

Obama's PC rules for Americans:

1)  Calling Muslims who commit atrocities 'Islamic Terrorists' is not permitted.  Calling them that would be rude.

2)  Calling Obama's domestic political opponents 'Teabaggers' is okay.

3)  Calling Bush "unpatriotic" for a 10 trillion dollar national debt is acceptable.

4)   Calling Obama "unpatriotic" for a 18 trillion dollar national debt is not allowed. 

5)  Saying Obama does not love this country as Giuliani recently did is unacceptable.

6)  Calling Republicans the "enemy" for not voting for Obama's immigration reforms while being interviewed on a Hispanic radio station is pure and wonderful.

Government is a business...a very poorly run business

From “The Secret Knowledge” (2011), by David Mamet :
Government is only a business. Past the roads, defense, and sewers, it sells excitement and self-satisfaction to the masses, and charges them an entertainment tax, exacted in wealth and misery. It cannot make cars, or develop medicines. How can it “abolish poverty” (at home or abroad), or Bring About an End to Greed or Exploitation? It can only sell the illusion, and put itself in a position where it is free from judgment of its efforts. It does this, first of all, by stating inchoate goals, “change, hope, fairness, peace,” and then indicting those who question them as traitors or ogres; finally, it explains its lack of success by reference to persistent if magical forces put in play by its predecessors and yet uneradicated because of insufficient funding.

[Mamet (a Hollywood writer who recently came out of the closet as a Conservative) wrote the Pulitizer prize-winning plays Glengarry Glen Ross and Speed the Plow. He wrote the screenplays for these films: The Untouchables, The Verdict, Wag the Dog, Hoffa, and The Postman Always Rings Twice.]

President selfie

Doing this while ISIS burns 45 people alive five miles from 300+ Marines stationed in IRAQ.  Yeah, that's leadership.

Vice-President, Joe Biden. One grope away from the Presidency. Works the TSA line at BWI just for kicks.


 Have you noticed that when Obama brings up slavery, or the Crusades he doesn't parse that SOME Americans were slave owners; and SOME Christians took part in the Crusades? Oh, no! Every American and/or Christian is tainted. But, when he talks about terrorism only a small minority of "radicalized" Muslims are to blame.

Obama's budget proposal is a joke

Daniel Henninger writing in the WSJ about Obama's budget submittal:

In six years, the Obama Democrats have abandoned any belief in the idea that the private sector is the primary cause of American prosperity. Instead, they seem to see the private sector as a kind of tax sump-pump, a dumb machine whose only purpose is tax flow.

President Me, Myself, and I.

Paul A. Rahe writing at Ricochet.com:
A few days ago, in India, Barack Obama gave a three-minute speech in which he referred to himself 118 times.
That speech is emblematic of his entire administration. Nearly all of his speeches have been exceedingly self-referential. All Presidents are to some degree full of themselves. Had they not been so, they never would have made it that far. But when it comes to vanity, Barack Obama takes the cake. The whole enterprise has always been about him — and no one else — which helps explain the astonishing damage he has done to the Democratic Party. The way things are going, if he were allowed to run for a third term and won, he might be the last Democratic officeholder left — which would, I suspect, suit him just fine.

Political correctness makes the West weak

Liberal bravely comes out against political correctness

Liberal writer Jonathan Chiat is NOT so happy with political correctness:

"That the new political correctness has bludgeoned even many of its own supporters into despondent silence is a triumph, but one of limited use. Politics in a democracy is still based on getting people to agree with you, not making them afraid to disagree. The historical record of political movements that sought to expand freedom for the oppressed by eliminating it for their enemies is dismal. The historical record of American liberalism, which has extended social freedoms to blacks, Jews, gays, and women, is glorious. And that glory rests in its confidence in the ultimate power of reason, not coercion, to triumph".

Over-hyped storm of the century (so far)

From the satirical website The Onion:

As a major winter storm continued its advance toward New York City, Mayor Bill de Blasio advised residents Monday to make peace with whatever higher power they call God, for all shall meet their death in the coming tempest. “The furious hoarfrost bearing down upon us knows neither mercy nor reason, and all within the five boroughs will perish, cowering in their brittle dwellings,” said de Blasio, adding that none would find succor from the gale save those favored by providence to pass quietly in their sleep. “This shall be a tempest the likes of which has never been glimpsed by man or beast. Clutch your babes close to your breast and take small comfort in knowing that they will howl for but a few hours before death becalms them forever.” De Blasio added that, barring an unexpected intensification in the storm, normal subway and bus service would resume Wednesday.
