Santa’s Yelpers

If you can get to the Battersea Dogs and Cats home in London you can adopt one of these. They are mixed breed mongrels, the best dogs to my mind, seeing as how I hale from a long line of mongrels myself. These mutts will grow to be big, healthy and devoted to their masters.…

To Serve and Disrespect — Cops Behaving Badly

A jogger is struck by a truck and critically injured in Seattle. First responding police officers show themselves to be unfit for the job. As the injured man lies in a pool of his own blood and near death, police officers make stupid and disrespectful cracks about him, the kind that makes some people think…

Who’s Better on Guns and the Second Amendment? Newt or Romney?

Newt Gingrich in a speech to the NRA  convention in April: “The right to bear arms is not about hunting, it is not about target practice. The right to bear arms is a political right designed to safeguard freedom so that no government can take away from you the rights which God has given you…

The Brutal Legacy of Kim Jong Il

It was sickening yesterday to listen to mavens of the media Andrea Mitchell and her co-horts eulogizing North Korea’s brutal dictator Kim Jong Il as if he were some noble and beloved statesman of the world. Andrea Mitchell went on about how intelligent he was, saying, “I met him, I actually met him.” Former secretary…

Thomas Sowell On Romney’s Anti-Newt Attack Ads in Iowa

Thomas Sowell wrote an interesting column yesterday on the all out anti-Newt campaign Mitt Romney has launched in Iowa.  Romney, through his SuperPac, has spent more on anti-Newt ads in Iowa than all other candidates combined.  These ads seem to be working as Newt’s numbers in the latest Iowa polls show a sharp decline.  Professor…

Obama Politicizing U.S. Labor Statistics?

When the new unemployment figures from the supposedly non-partisan Bureau of Labor Statistics came out earlier this month it was widely pointed out that the 8.6% number was only made possible by not counting the shrinkage in the labor market since Obama took office, and that the U-3 unemployment rate, which takes that into account,…

Opposition to the NTSB’s Push for a Total Ban on Cell Phone Use in Cars

The NTSB nannies want a Federal law banning all cell phone use in cars, even hands free, bluetooth and voice activated. They are doing what government nannies always do when they want to restrict freedom, they are lying and obfuscating. They are playing fast and loose with accident data and accident analysis. For example, Mona…

Highlights From From Fox News Debate In Iowa

Newt carried the night with these comments, in my view.  Notice the visceral hatred of Newt by the female questioner from Fox News, and how he adeptly takes her comments and shove them right up…. Having spent 30 plus years being abused by liberal judges I especially like this clip where Newt explains why many…

Don’t Let The Nanny State Take Your Cell Phone Away

The horrible pile up in Missouri the other day, I’ve called it the 11-11-11 crash, [correction to that previous post — only 2 people killed, 38 injured.  Lots of photos of the crash here] the perfect excuse the nannies at the NTSB were waiting for. They’re using it to try to justify a recommendation for a…
