Matt Damon Unhinged Over Public Education

Matt Damon, like so many Hollywood elites, is a left-wing bigot whose understanding of economics is astoundingly abysmal and yet entirely typical of his political party. As noted here before, Matt Damon is a devotee of neo-Marxist Howard Zinn (RIP), who, by his own admission, did not like America and yet for some reason, despite…

“I Didn’t Say ‘Change We Can Believe in TOMORROW'”: Obama In His Own Words (Part 2)

Barack Obama, 2006: “Raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure.” Barack Obama, 2006: “Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that ‘the buck stops here.’ Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren.” Barack Obama, 2011: “Nobody likes to…

The Man Without A Plan

I thought the following was exceptionally accurate. From ex-liberal Roger Simon: President Obama’s been taking a lot of flak lately for not having a plan. First it was about Libya, but now — even more importantly because, as we know, all politics is local (until it’s not) — about the budget. The latest White House…

Barack Obama: FDR “Was Pretty Fiscally Conservative”

This, if you didn’t know it already, shows you exactly how economically illiterate and out-of-touch Barack Obama really is. It will also perhaps remind you of his whacked-out 2009 statement: “We’ve actually been operating in a way entirely consistent with free-market principles.” From a speech Obama gave today, July 22nd, 2011: President Obama says it…

Brutal Beclowning: MSNBC’s Contessa Brewer To GOP Congressman: “Do You Have A Degree In Economics?”

This is hilarious. Contessa Brewer, who does not have a degree in economics or common sense, beclowned herself horribly when she was grilling Alabama Representative Mo Brooks on the debt issue and tried feebly to discredit his qualifications for by asking: “Do you have a degree in economics?” Can you guess the answer? Watch: Quoting…

Steve Wynn — Wynn Resort CEO — Goes On Epic Anti-Obama Rant

And he unloads with good reason. Steve Wynn, by the way, is no consistent capitalist, as he himself as much as says when he announces his support for that dingy quack Harry Reid. And yet Steve Wynn is on the money here: I believe in Las Vegas. I think its best days are ahead of…

Democrat Sheila Jackson Lee Plays The Race Card In Debt Ceiling Fight

Evidently, representative Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) wasn’t too busy answering her cell phone during Town Halls this past Friday, but instead had the time (and the nerve) to play the race card yet again, strongly suggesting that race-obsessed Barack (“My-Grandmother-Is-A-Typical-White-Person”) Obama’s skin color is what’s actually to blame in this meaningless debt-ceiling fight: From Real…

Rick Santelli: “Bring it On … If Not Now, When?”

Rick Santelli, who is largely credited with starting the tea part back in the old days before the tea party had lost its teeth, is something of a hero. Here’s his unforgettable — and inarguable — salvo against Barack Obama’s explicit call to “fundamentally change America”: Now he has this: RICK SANTELLI: You don’t compromise…

Gin And The Origins Of The Martini

In hell, said Randal Jarell, Americans tell each other how to make a martini. A martini — “the elixir of quietude” as E.B. White described it — consists of gin and vermouth. The ingredients are chilled and then strained into a cocktail glass. That, at any rate, is the original martini, though vodka is now,…

Barack Obama Concedes The Obvious: Welfare Breeds Dependence

“Well, you know, here’s what I would say. I think we should acknowledge that some welfare programs in the past were not well designed and in some cases did encourage dependency. As somebody who worked in low income neighborhoods, I’ve seen it, where people weren’t encouraged to work, weren’t encouraged to upgrade their skills, were…

Born On The Fourth Of July: America’s 235 Anniversary

On this day in 1776, America’s thirteen colonies broke away from Britain to forge a new nation free to govern itself. The guiding principle behind this new nation is stated very clearly in America’s foundation document — the Declaration of Independence — which says that all human beings by nature possess the unalienable right to…

Official Calls For Riverside, 12 Other Counties To Secede From California

Secession is interesting thing, more complicated than one might at first think. The following — which won’t go anywhere — is semi interesting. Out of the frying pan, into the fire: RIVERSIDE (CBS) — Is the state of California about to go “South”? Riverside County Supervisor Jeff Stone apparently thinks so, after proposing that the…

Defending McDonald’s (Again)

Most in the mainstream are busy vilifying McDonald’s, but not me. In fact, I’ve defended McDonald’s before, against the outrageous environmental hoops through which the religion of environmentalism has pressured McDonald’s to jump, and so I was particularly delighted to read Jeffry Tucker’s excellent essay also in defense of those golden arches. Here’s an excerpt:…

The Unluckiest Man In The World

Reportedly, his girlfriend is “a tad miffed.” From Hot Air: If he had a couple of dollars, he’d be living the dream. Michael Kosko, a state worker who passed on the office pool that scored a $319 million Mega Millions jackpot, had the simplest reason for bowing out. “I didn’t have two singles,” said Michael…

Obama Versus Technology: ATM’s Responsible For Unemployment

It is, to say the least of it, a very horrifying thing indeed that someone in this position of power actually believes an economic canard of this caliber — a canard that’s been bunked a billion times, and which, in fact, is so easily debunked — and yet it’s even more horrifying to realize that…
