The smartest democrat in Congress, Representative Sheila Jackson Lee (TX -18), from Philip Klein, American Spectator: Arguing that the Commerce Clause provides the constitutional basis for ObamaCare, Jackson Lee said repealing the law by passing Republicans’ H.R. 2 violates both the Fifth Amendment’s right to due process and the Fourteenth Amendment’s equal protection clause. “The […]

Don’t Ask, Don’t Think, the New York Slmes goes stupid: The Senate Stands for Injustice On one of the most shameful days in the modern history of the Senate, the Republican minority on Thursday prevented a vote to allow gay and lesbian soldiers to serve openly in the military of the United States.

Space ClusterIn a recent conversation with a friend of mine, his comment was something like, “Those people on the far left must be from a different solar system.” Another friend said, “We are living in Alternative Reality B” (referencing the line from the movie Back to the Future) where we momentarily leave the time-space continuum.  My personal take is that the far left is simply the result of a nasty turn taken on the path of evolutionary biology.  While we may still appear to be part of the same human species, liberals and conservatives will ultimately be seen as fundamentally different members of the mammilia branch.  And while I jest (but just a little), the question of what separates the “thinking” of liberals and the principles of conservatives is befuddling for many of us.

Most adults in America today (other than the most senior amongst us) have never had to directly face the ideology of the N. Pelosi\’s, C. Schumer\’s, J. Wright\’s and E. Holder\’s of the world.  Even the 1960\’s form of “progressivism” was set against the backdrop of the known evil of an outwardly racist system, and an equally controversial war in Vietnam.  Today is different.  What we face today is an unforced and radical progressivism without any of the supporting historical props.  The problem with the interpretive thinking of conservatives today is that we are attempting to see the logic in the ideology of the left (or at least some form of semi-coherent palliative) that will allow us to understand the apparent vacuity.  But herein we are seeking to see that which simply does not exist.

When we look at the notion […]

Eric Holder’s double standard, Leftist Propaganda Machine: “Those who reaffirm our nation’s most essential and enduring values do not deserve to have their own values questioned,” Holder told a group of lawyers who offer “pro bono,” or voluntary, legal services. “Let me be clear about this: Lawyers who provide counsel for the unpopular are, and […]

For all you, like me, who think that Barack Obama lives in own private alternative universe, which I call Obamaland, we now have strong collaborating evidence.    From Gateway Pundit, “‘President Obama Says He Is “Unaware of Tea Parties””.     So from where ever the one gets his news, it is not from the new media.     It […]

It should be no secret that I am not exactly a member of the Dirty Harry Reid Fan Club, gee is anybody?    However Dirty Harry does seem to generate some consensus across the political aisle. The lefttard who I love to quote, Jane Hamsher, Fire Dog Lake, expresses  her doubts about how smart Dirty Harry […]
