Flipping Houses Shows Elizabeth Warren is a Hypocrite

Elizabeth Warren has condemned house-flipping and profiting from foreclosures; but she built wealth by doing it. As you will know if you read this blog the other day, I pretty much despise the National Review as a pseudo-conservative traitor rag. But I can’t deny this story about Elizabeth Warren’s house-flipping career in the nineties is quite fun to read: “Elizabeth Warren Bought Foreclosed Homes to Make a Quick Profit.” There is nothing intrinsically wrong with what Elizabeth Warren Read more […]

Drone Killing Only Counts When They Look Like Us?

The accidental drone killing of two hostages counts for more than all the other drone killings we have committed against non-combatants. Why? Yes, yes… let’s put the focus on the sadness of killing a couple of trees we liked, as we continue to use a flame-thrower on forest after forest. The moral blindness here is staggering. Here it is via The Assoicated Press: “Accidental drone killing of hostages ups pressure on White House for new abductee policy.” The accidental killing of two Read more […]

MSNBC Tax-the-Rich Propagandists Owe Taxes

Funny how people who constantly complain that taxes aren’t high enough for “the rich” don’t seem to be able to pay their own. From Jillian Kay Melchior at the National Review: “MSNBC’s Touré Has the Taxman on His Case.” Touré Neblett, co-host of MSNBC’s The Cycle, owes more than $59,000 in taxes, according to public records reviewed by National Review. In September 2013, New York issued a state tax warrant to Neblett and his wife, Rita Nakouzi, for $46,862.68. Six months Read more […]

This Cannot Be a Hate Crime, Comrades

Black men beating up a white man for failing to answer a question about Michael Brown correctly: definitely not a hate crime. Here’s the video for your viewing pleasure (fight starts at about 1:40): According to my local Fox 2 Station: The video shows man seated at the front of the MetroLink train can be seen talking to several young men.  After a heated exchange the man wearing a red shirt and hat punches the seated man in the face.  The man puts up his fists to protect himself Read more […]

White House Preaches Higher Minimum Wage, Pays Nothing

While the White House insists that wages for workers should be raised, it actually pays nothing to some of its workers. People at the White House are concerned about Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders. They don’t think there are enough of them in Washington DC. The Weekly Standards quotes the White House announcement: “Calling All Students: Apply for the Summer 2015 White House Initiative on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders Internship Program.” The announcement provides details Read more […]

More Hypocrisy about the Constitution in the Senate

The hypocrisy is getting so blatant that it is impossible not to call it out. Today I was sincerely pondering the command not to “speak evil of a ruler of your people”. When the Apostle Paul recites that in Acts 23, he has merely spoken “truth to power”: He called out the High Priest for violating the law. I’m being honest here… I clearly have some studying to do on that point, and undoubtedly a lot more repenting. That said, leadership in America today denigrates its offices by their Read more […]

Harvard Profs Taste Their Own Obamacare Medicine; Don’t Like It

Obamacare has come to the Harvard Profs and they are angry at having to suffer under their own “genius.” I know I shouldn’t laugh… I really shouldn’t. It’s simply sad, but… it provides me with at least a tiny ray of hope that perhaps… just perhaps… a few of them will finally awaken from their mental captivity to nonsense. I know… it’s a long-shot, but I can hope. From the New York Times: “Harvard Ideas on Health Care Hit Home, Hard.” For years, Harvard’s experts on Read more […]

Unfortunate Boss: Bruce Springsteen & His Real Problem

Bruce Springsteen is one of my favorite songwriters. He and the E Street Band have been a musical inspiration to me for a number of years now. This doesn’t mean I like all of his material – in fact, there’s quite a bit I don’t like – but approximately 70 songs of his are top notch in my estimation. As spectacular as Springsteen’s live performances are, perhaps his greatest skill is his lyrical storytelling. He is able to communicate depths of human emotion in profound ways and he frequently Read more […]

More Barack Obama Secrecy: Political Travel

Obama secrecy is all too common despite promises about “transparency.” Imagine having an employee, with a company credit card, and he’s always taking trips billed to you. He admits many of the expenses he charges are his own responsibility, but he refuses to show you the actual details of his spending. How long would that person remain an employee? [See also, “Most Transparent Administration in History Gives Advocacy Group State Secrets Privilege.”] But CBS News reports, “How Read more […]

Francois Hollande Hates the Poor, According to His Ex-Girlfriend

If Francois Hollande hates the poor, Valérie Trierweiler would know about it. Of course, she could also be exaggerating since he cheated on her. (The whole relationship is bizarre since they were never married—and their relationship began while she was still officially married. Nevertheless, she believes Hollande “cheated” on her by having sex with another woman.) She is obviously quite angry at him. Still her testimony seems quite plausible. According to the International Business Read more […]

Warren Buffet Helps “Unpatriotic” Burger King

I’m sorry, but why are so many people surprised that Warren Buffett has proved—one more time—that he is a massive hypocrite, whose only allegiance is to what makes Warren Buffett and his companies rich? Buffet has used his disingenuous talk about not paying enough in taxes (while refusing to pay billions the government says Berkshire Hathaway owes, and sending an army of lawyers to help him keep from paying them) to cozy up to an Administration whose decisions have made him a lot of Read more […]

Maybe the Washington Redskins Would be Less Offensive if They Dropped the Name of the City

From Politico.com: “Harry Reid to Dan Snyder: ‘Writing is on the wall’” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid — a vocal opponent of the Washington Redskins name — took to the floor Wednesday and continued to slam the team’s owner in light of the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office’s decision to cancel the team’s trademarks. “The Redskins no longer have trademarks. They are gone,” the Nevada Democrat said. “Daniel Snyder may be the last person in the world to realize this, but it’s Read more […]
