Tea Partiers and the GOP: An Uneasy Alliance

As the Tea Party movement and its anti-establishment voters continue to gain momentum, it’s no longer just the Democrats who are getting hit by the wave. The recent victory in Delaware of Tea Party-backed senatorial candidate Christine O’Donnell over incumbent Mike Castle has angered some of the GOP establishment.

Most notably, Karl Rove, who usually […]

Paul Hsieh on ObamaCare

Paul Hsieh has an essay at Pajamas Media (which Instapundit picked up today):   Get Ready for Your Health Care ‘Re-Education’. Paul co-founded FIRM (Freedom and Individual Rights in Medicine); and, in addition to being a practicing physician in Denver, he’s an editorial rock star. Way to go, Paul!


Quote of the Day: A Sad Little Man

This is from Mike Thomas at the Orlando Sentinel:  “I ask you: If a sad little man burns some Qurans in the woods, and the media aren’t there to film it, is it news?

Of course not.”

Update:  While I am no fan of book burning, the riotous response to the event was completely irrational. […]

On America’s Ruling Class

If you missed this powerful essay by Angelo Codevilla, “America’s Ruling Class — And the Perils of Revolution,” I highly recommend it. I learned yesterday that Dr. Codevilla, a professor of international relations at Boston University and a senior editor of The American Spectator, has expanded his article into a book, The Ruling Class: How They Corrupted America […]

Another Tea Party Victory: Marco Rubio

In yet another victory for the Tea Party, Marco Rubio, has won Florida’s Republican primary election for U.S. Senate in a landslide with over 84% of the votes. Rubio is now up against Kendrick Meek, the Democrat primary winner, and Charlie Crist, running as an Independent, in one of the most interesting races in the […]

Ground Zero Mosque-eteers

The New York Times editorial board predictably came out in defense of the Cordoba Initiative’s Ground Zero mosque project and praised President Obama’s stance on the issue (his first stance anyway). Obama, speaking at a Ramadan dinner at the White House last week, stated that the Muslims (led by Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf) have every […]

Florida’s 24th Congressional District Primary Election Heats Up

Florida’s 24th Congressional District primary election race is heating up, and since this is my district I’m following the developments with great interest. Yesterday was the last day to register to vote to be eligible to participate in the August 24th primary. But, if you are not yet registered, I strongly encourage you to do […]

The Topsy-Turvy World of Paul Krugman

In case you are not familiar with Nobel Prize-winning economist Paul Krugman’s take on our current fiscal crisis, he thinks the only way to avoid a longer recession (or possibly a Long Depression) is to have government spend our way back into prosperity. “Spend now, while the economy remains depressed; save later, once it has […]

The Penumbra of Obama’s Foreign Policy

This somewhat dated but still relevant article, “U.S. foreign policy:  Waiting on a Sun King,” by Edward Luce and Daniel Dombey published at FT.com in March 2010 sheds some disturbing light onto Obama’s approach to foreign policy, which is described as a highly centralized process in which “all roads lead to and from him.”

This […]

It’s Time to Question the Motives of the Dems

While you sipped your coffee or played with the kids, the U.S. House of Representatives voted today (around 11 p.m. EDT on Sunday, March 21st to be exact; 219 to 211) on passage of the Senate health care bill (yes, the one the Senate passed on Christmas Eve), and they also voted (at 11:36 p.m. […]
