Kids Shooting Kids In Pensacola

Here is a case where youth violence, youth gun violence specifically, has been a growing concern in the Pensacola area. One way to reach the kids, it was thought, was to give them something to do and try to teach them to behave responsibly. An altercation early Sunday morning that led to a 16-year-old being …

President Obama Doubles Down On Middle Class Rhetoric

Ever since May of his first term, President Obama has been saying that he ‘will not rest‘ until every person that wants a job gets a job. Or health insurance, or this, or that. His SOTU speeches are the same every year. He says we need more “investments” (that means spending) in roads, bridges, infrastructure, education. And …

AP, Taxes Could Damage Industry

Well this is rich. The AP is reporting that taxing the media (advertising media in this case) “could have damaging consequences” to the industry. What caught my eye to this article was the headline that begins with “Media watchdog.” Only to find out that the media watchdog they were referring to is watchers of the …

President Whines For Higher Minimum Wage

Got a note from my bud, the president, today. To help compensate for his lousy economy, he wants to make it even worse by increasing the minimum wage.  Further insuring that the long-term unemployed will stay that way.

Meanwhile, Cap and Trade having been repeatedly defeated in Congress (you know, the Constitutional way), President Obama is moving on to …

Dem’s False Creds To Tea Party

Have you noticed the narrative from the political Left changing from the tea party is irrelevant to the tea party has changed the GOP establishment to the point that they are now the same? There’s a purpose for such a false narrative, because there’s no evidence that the GOP has embraced what the ‘tea party’ (which isn’t …

Obama “Recovery” Hurting The Poor

Words have meanings. And the notion that there is a recovery going on in this country is simply absurd. It’s time to call it what it is. It’s not a recovery but a ‘decovery.’ Ok, I made that word up. How about we just call it a recession. We’ve had our two consecutive quarters of …

It’s A Threesome, Establishment GOP, Dems, U.S. Chamber

Gov. Palin was right to call the GOP establishment for gloating over recent primary battles. Instead, they ought to be trying to figure out what they need to do to gain their support. For without it, the Dems will prevail, and the Republican party and our country will become irrelevant in coming years. Of course, this presumes that …
