Doubt No Longer: Obama Is a Christian
Recent events surely put to rest once and for all the notion that Obama is anything less than a full-fledged Christian.
The laying on of hands
Obama's surprise visit to Iraq was scheduled so that he would sacrifice speaking time in favor o… Read full post »
Not surprisingly, I find around here no streaming videos of Janeane Garofalo's psychotic rant against the tea party protesters, wherein she called them a group of red-neck racists. And Keith O stood /sat by and, if anything, added fuel to the fire. This incident made the rookie CNN… Read full post »
How do we get rid of this blight on the political scene?
At her bug-eyed Botoxed best, Pelosi characterized the tea parties as "Astroturf" events, suggesting, ever so subtly of course, that they were not genuinely and generally supported by community groups. On the basis of what evi… Read full post »
Victory at Sea
It doesn’t get much better than this: Captain Phillips’ heroism in consolidating himself as the target of the pirates’ terrorism, President Obama’s prompt authorization of force to exterminate the verminous kidnappers, the sure shotedness of the Navy/… Read full post »
Will Obama Stand Up to the Spanish Inquisition?
Obama could do a lot to dispel the suspicion that he is selling out, in the cause of transnationalism, the best interests, if not the very sovereignty, of the country he purports to lead by telling the psychotic Spanish magistrate who is trying… Read full post »
Obama Talks Turkey
Obama’s final town meeting on the current tour was held before a group of young people in Istanbul. Compared to the tone of his earlier pronouncements, he sounded almost jingoistic. Of course, there was the usual nonsense about saving on electricity and the/… Read full post »
The New York Times is threatening to close The Boston Globe if the Globe's union doesn't make some concessions. The union is insisting on management concessions in return.
As Blanche du Bois stated in A Streetcar Named Desire, "Sometimes, there's God." This is one of those times.
If the G… Read full post »
An Investigation Worth Pursuing
While Sheriff Saturn Smith is encouraging domestic cooperation with foreign countries that are pursuing persecution/prosecution of lawyers who came to the professional conclusion that enhanced interrogation techniques did not, under the prevailing circumstances,… Read full post »
The G-20 Welcoming Cocktail Party
Obama will make a grand entrance wondering a bit where the hurrahs he remembers from a few months ago are.
Brown rushes forward to grasp his hand and say that he really enjoyed watching the DVDs once he figured out how to play them on U.K.… Read full post »
The philosophical and parasitic excesses of the Obama administration have fully flowered with the incredible statement by one of his "intelligence" lieutenants that detainees (is it still OK to call them that, or perhaps "sandy strays" would be better?) released into the United States from Gitmo … Read full post »
Fresh from his triumphs over the IRS and AIG, Tim Geithner is now seeking super regulatory powers over the financial industry. A few questions inevitably tincture one’s view of how good an idea this is:
What is the government’s track record in managing fu… Read full post »
Obama’s Town Meeting: The Big Sleep
The March 26, 2009 Town Meeting featuring Mayor Obama made his earlier tepid prime time press conference sound like Orson Welles’ War of the Worlds broadcast.
The cues were perfectly aligned: education, housing, health care, etc./… Read full post »
Is it my imagination, or is all the good stuff going on at S rather than at OS? Every time I log in, I see all these fantastic headlines, usually with lunatic premises, written by persons whose names I know.
Then I segue, ever so smartly, to OS and am… Read full post »
A Stock Market Prediction
The brief course of the Obama presidency has already had a remarkably adverse effect upon the U.S. stock market, which responds not so much to the past but rather to investor confidence, or lack thereof, in the future.
A bill to impose a confiscatory and probably… Read full post »

A great actor who struggled mightily for his valuable life and for his invaluable country. Well done, sir. Read full post »
What to do when your administration and your party is:
- fighting amongst itself about culpability for the AIG scandal
- threatening veteran benefits
- dismantling means of combating radical Islamic extremists
- listening to its House leader call law enforcement officials “un-Am/ … Read full post »
The Liddy Inquest: A Congressional Low
Today’s spectacle should be enough to convince any thinking being that government should really not be trusted with anything other than the armed forces, domestic and foreign, and the administration of the court system.
One highlight was… Read full post »
An Unprincipled Presidency
Two hot new news topics illustrate how willing the Obama Administration is to put politics over principle.
As unpopular as the AIG bonuses are, it is undeniable that their aggregate amount is relatively insignificant. However, because of all the popular bu/… Read full post »
AIG: Haste (and Government Stupidity) Makes Waste
The only problem with the public outrage about the AIG bonuses is that it’s largely directed at the wrong target.
Any private investor in AIG contributing billions of dollars in exchange for a controlling interest in the organi… Read full post »
As the Big Board is making contrary predictions all over the place, I'm going to offer my own.
Geithner is toast. Just a matter of time. Never has a wunderkind proved to be so unwunderful.
Robert Gibbs is toast. When speech impediments achieve aphasia, it's time to get s… Read full post »
A Frontal Attack on the Frontal Lobe
A frontal attack is ever so much more effective if the troops are all marching in the same direction. Stellaa’s recent frontal attack on criticism of Obama’s signing of the Big Pig is an example.
The author declares, incredibly, that… Read full post »
The Brown Visit: Was Obama Being Passive or Aggressive?
Although Obama has already proven that no task is too small to be mishandled—a glance at the Treasury Department’s roster will surely confirm that—it’s truly hard to believe that some protocol functionary in o… Read full post »
The Dem’s Distraction Express
It seems that the Limbaugh engine on this train is running out of steam, so it’s time for Open Salon’s Joan Walsh to add another propulsive distraction: Michelle Malkin.
I won’t bother describing the hit piece; its content is as… Read full post »
The Class Obama Cut
Contracts 101. Given its recent liberal propensities, Harvard may not have taught it when Obama was there.
A hallmark of any society claiming to be civilized is the rule of law. Laws respond a human’s need for predictability. Citizens cannot produce o/… Read full post »
