Illi-noise: Another ‘Progressive’ Blue State Cannot Pay Its Bills

It was a nice summer day in Illinois. Kids were enjoying their summer break, diving for murder weapons in the Chicago River when news broke that the state of Illinois had been downgraded to junk bond status. Unchecked growth in government and the inability to tax fleeing citizens and corporations were the cause. “I amContinue reading “Illi-noise: Another ‘Progressive’ Blue State Cannot Pay Its Bills”

Hu’s On First?

It was a mixed reception for China’s President Hu when he visited the United States last week. Like all politicians, he highlighted our shared interests and downplayed the giant pandas in the room: fair trade and human rights. We owe China so much money that most Americans were relieved he did not start foreclosure proceedings.Continue reading “Hu’s On First?”

Rahm Emanuel (Dem-moralized): “Dead Fish” Taken To the Trash Can

Rahm “Dead Fish” Emanuel plans to leave his post as Obama’s head bouncer and pocket-thug-in-residence to head home to Chicago.

Blago Set Free, His Hair To Stand Trial Separately

I’ve got this thing, and it’s (expletive) golden. And I’m just not giving it up for (expletive) nothing. I’m not going to do it. And I can always use it.

From Russia With Love

“History does not repeat itself, but it does rhyme.”  —  Mark Twain If you thought we were reliving the Jimmy Carter administration with oil issues, a bad economy and policies that are just making it worse, problems with Iran, and a president who is in over his head, then it just gets more “déjà vuContinue reading “From Russia With Love”

Spitzer Swallows A CNN Show?

It has become alarmingly apparent that pop culture is more important than substantive news reporting. Infamy, which allows vapid “stars” or dubious “celebrities” to insert themselves into the public discourse, has become commonplace. Witness the curious case of former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer, who is in negotiations with CNN to host a one-hour show.Continue reading “Spitzer Swallows A CNN Show?”

Team Obama Rounds Up The Villains

To implement its agenda, Team Obama develops a narrative according to its needs. Then they send the marching orders out to their brethren in the media, who faithfully run stories sympathetic to the goal du jour. “Deal with us or we take you down,” Obama tells his targets in his best Chicago-style politico-speak. “If youContinue reading “Team Obama Rounds Up The Villains”

Larger Implications In Health Care Heist

When Barack Obama played Monopoly as a kid, I can only imagine he did not carefully cultivate a business reputation and earn enough money to buy properties on Boardwalk and Park Place. He probably created a special Democratic version of Monopoly, the Hugo Chavez Edition, where he would denounce the owners of properties as “greedyContinue reading “Larger Implications In Health Care Heist”
