Today’s Japanese Lesson – BABURU KEIZAI

February 9, 2014

6

There’s another story behind the glitter of our mass media economic reporting.   The Japanese have ‘been there, done that’. I thought the title, ‘Baburu Keizai’ might be intriguing enough to get you to read the post to find out the meaning.  You probably already suspect that it is a  Japanese phrase.  Well, this phrase, and […]

The Buffoon from the Chicago Tribune

January 14, 2014

You’ll forgive me if I just take a break from the ordinary format of buttressing my perspectives with documentation, quotes and data points and just vent.  Perhaps I should do so more often and likely I will, because progressives don’t know what to do with the truth when they see it and you rely on […]

MSNBC Lying In The Bed They Made

January 4, 2014

By now most every political junkie on either side of the spectrum, has digested the Duck Dynasty fiasco and the Melissa Harris-Perry debacle, oh, and certainly let’s not leave out Martin Bashir and Alec Baldwin.   Because of that, I’m not going to discuss the merits of those incidents specifically, but to look at them […]

Lies, and the Lying Crooks and Liars That Tell Them

August 28, 2013

  A colleague of mine, called my attention to a post on a Democrat party shill website named ‘Crooks and Liars’.  At first I assumed the site was dedicated to serving up a daily main course and assorted entrees exhibiting those very attributes – (crookedness and lying) of the Obama administration and its coterie of […]

Losing Private Ryan

August 2, 2013

This is not exclusively on Congressman and erstwhile Vice Presidential candidate Paul Ryan, but Ryan – along with Senator Marco Rubio, are the most notable examples of how elastic any politician with higher ambitions can be when they succumb to the wiles of the lobbying machinery in Washington D.C. I realize that sounds like they […]

Editor’s Note:  Update to this story. The perpetrator of this horrible crime, DeMarquis Elkins, was convicted and on September 13th, 2013 – sentenced to life imprisonment and had the sentence enhanced by another 150 years by the judge, based on another violent crime he had committed (felony assault – attempted murder), 10 days before the […]

Shooting The Messenger

Within a few days of my post, “An Ounce of Prevention”, came the quite predictable response to the Heritage Foundation’s  promotion of their policy paper on the fiscal cost of providing amnesty for 11 to 15 million migrants in this country illegally.  The response from the media and advocacy group proponents of amnesty, is not […]

Two Wrongs don’t make a Civil Right

With all of the perfidy he has perpetrated, I don’t believe I have as yet, dedicated a particular post to Attorney General Eric Holder.  I’m correcting that as of today.  As many suspected, Obama’s re-coronation last year signified a shift from even a modest degree of restraint to the worst behavior of a lame duck […]

The Fed Feeds the Bull

April 7, 2013

A lot of people are puzzled by the strange disconnect between the behavior of investors in the stock market and the underlying fundamentals of the economy.   Psychologists call this ‘dissonance’, which is an expensive word to describe the feeling that what I’m seeing doesn’t make sense.  You’ve been seeing the Dow Jones Industrial Average, […]

Sgt. Prepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band

I wrote a piece last year called “Tea Party Terrorists”, in which I detailed that the Department of Homeland Security – the Frankenstein monster spawned from the ashes of 9/11 – commissioned a survey from the University of Maryland National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism.  The study concluded that conservatives […]
