Even Howard Dean called this “reform” plan crazy! “Reform” is in quotes because calling this reform is a lie.This is not reform it’s a complete socialist take over health care with rationing of care for the old and undesirable. If there was tort reform (anathema to the greedy trial lawyers like John Edwards, who coincidentally […]

I noted the other day an article in the Wall Street Journal by Naftali  BenDavid, with the headline: Tea-Party Activists Complicate Republican Comeback Strategy. As you might expect from the title, the piece comes out in the first para to complain: The rise of conservative “tea party” activists around the country has created a dilemma […]

I’ve been pretty much silent on this berth are controversy since its beginning, making only an occasional comment, preferring instead to let DavidL take the lead.  In any event I am pretty much in agreement with what he has been saying. That said, I notice a post this morning that I find hard to resist, […]

Well, now of course they’ve got the power. They’ve got control, and they’ve taken control of the car companies as well. As yet, however, they can’t force me to buy something, though I don’t doubt that’s coming.  They can by means of pollution standards, force my vehicle off the road eventually.  Now do you begin to understand why this ‘global warming’ nonsense has been so important the last decade or so?

First it was Joe the Plumber, then Rush Limbaugh, then Rick Santelli and now it is Jim Cramer.   Call it a rant, Cramer makes some good points, video: At some point the Obama administration has to stop trying to shoot the messenger and start dealing with the problem of a tanking economy.  The difference between […]

Welcome dear reader, to the most intense nightly read on the ‘sphere… BitsBlog’s Nightly Ramble.

Joe the Plumber. You remember the story. Obama rolls up to his house one day. Joe plucks up his courage and asks a question of Barack Obama, the subject of which Mr. Obama would apparently rather not discuss. Result?  Joe gets attacked by the press, the unions and the Democrats. In short, they try to […]

Welcome dear reader, to the most intense nightly read on the ‘sphere… BitsBlog’s Nightly Ramble. Yeah, yeah, yeah… I know, Colin Powell. All the rage over the weekend. I don’t think there’s much argument against the idea that there’s a decided attempt on the part of some to keep General Powell in the headlines. Liberals, […]

Bruce at Q&O, yesterday notes a question at Men’s News Daily: Now that Barack Obama has received the endorsement of the Brady Campaign gun-control group, will the Supreme Court’s findings in the D.C. gun-ban “Heller” case matter? I don’t know as that was the threshold, but certainly the answer is ‘no’. Bruce points out that […]

David’s quote of Ed Morressy seems to me quite on the money. Consider the operative phrase of Ed’s very first line: “Stench of Desperation”. And what is driving this desperation, you may ask? Wasn’t Obama ahead? What explains this? Well, he used to be ahead, yes. As for what explains it, note with me, the […]
