A Crossroads

One idea that I’ve espoused since the beginning of the newfound limited government movement from the right is that so-called conservatives will come to a crossroads; a point at which they must decide what is more important: small government and individual liberty, or the enforcement of their moral agenda. Fortunately, it seems that some conservatives […]

In the midst of a fine argument against government intervention in press activities, particularly against government subsidies for the press which is supposed to be free and unbiased, L. Brent Bozell III and Dan Gainor, via The American Spectator, miss their left at Albuquerque, and roll straight into typical conservative bullshit land: In furtherance of […]

Hey, GOP fucktards! Haven’t I been hearing you lather on your small government sauce for the past 2 years? Or is the insistence that we arrest US citizens for committing drug “crimes” outside of the US, even in places where it isn’t a crime at all, so compelling that we should just forget about the […]

Delaware Online concerning the nomination of Christine O’Donnell over the Republican establishment favorite Mike Castle: Castle said parts of the health care law make strides in improving access to medical care in a more cost-efficient manner. He said he would support repeal, but only if the bill was replaced with a Republican version that cuts […]

A Perfect Example

This piece seems a perfect example of one of my theories: most of those who side with demotards come voting time don’t do so out of reverence for their fiscal policy or their love of big government, but because they fucking hate how so-con motherfuckers have turned the GOP in to the party of self […]

Don’t Get Me Wrong

There has been a whole lot of me harping, criticizing, and cussing about democrats of late. There is a simple reason for that: they are the only ones doing something. Demotards accuse Republitards of being the party of no, saying essentially that they are trying to throw a wrench in the congressional machine. Make no […]

WSJ: BP Relied on Faulty U.S. Data

The more information that emerges about the oil spill, the more it looks to be a government induced problem, and not solely a matter of corporate irresponsibility (though I suspect that the likes of MSNBC and CNN will still spin it that way).  Neil King Jr. and Keith Johnson via The Wall Street Journal: BP […]

Typical Hackmanship

Eternal douchebags Rush Limbaugh, Newt Gingrich, and Sarah Palin shouldn’t call Obama’s agenda socialist in nature because they have family problems. I’m no fan of any of those three.  In fact, I can’t stand to listen to any of them and I’m not sure we’d miss too much were the three to be abducted by […]

The More I see, The Less I Likey

And no I’m not talking about ObamaCare this time, but Rand Paul.  I was of the mind that he represents a very good chance at getting a consistently pro-liberty senator in the federal government.  But with each piece of news I hear since his slaughter of republitard establishment favorite Grayson, I lean more towards the […]

It’s nice to know that sometimes people do what they think is ‘right’, not what is expected of them.

As If There Was An Option

Bill Estep via The Lexington Herald-Leader on recent meetings between Rand Paul and the establishment party hacks Paul ran against in the Kentucky Senatorial primaries: But Paul ran outside the party establishment, against a man endorsed by leaders of that establishment and without the support of many in the party structure. “It happened, and we’ve […]

A Chilly Breeze

Though I doubt that the residents of hell are seeing ice crystals form, it’s fair odds that they felt a chilly breeze when the The New York Times lamented that a Federal Court recently upheld unprecedented amounts of executive power.  An anonymous editorialist: One of the most vital jobs of the federal courts is to […]

Meanwhile . . .

Conservatards both in the military and in Congress predictably circle their wagons and prepare for a last stand defense against a bitter enemy.  “Remember the Alamo”, I can hear one whisper under his breath.

NTSA: Abortion Edition

Though it seems that bloggers have stopped shitting themselves en masse over Rand Paul’s supposed racism, Reason’s Hit-n-Run blog, generally very good (and home of the absolute best blog commenters I have encountered) has moved on to yet another topic which was effectively settled nearly 4 decades ago: Rand Paul’s position on abortion.  I had […]

Elisabeth Bumiller via The Washington Post: The chiefs of the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines objected on Wednesday to a compromise plan to repeal the military’s ban on allowing gay men and lesbians to serve openly, a position that put them at odds with President Obama and Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates.

You Don’t Say

Spenser S. Hsu via The Washington Post: Arizona’s new crackdown on illegal immigration will increase crime in U.S. cities, not reduce it, by driving a wedge between police and immigrant communities, police chiefs from several of the state’s and the nation’s largest cities said Wednesday.

Libertarian Party Vice Chairman Joshua Koch in an interview with The Washington Post: The reason why we would even consider running somebody in this race is because we’re not going to let Rand determine what a Libertarian stands for . . . I’m here to say Rand does not have the Libertarian ideology. Though Paul […]

The Hypocrisy of it All

Julian Sanchez via Newsweek: we now take for granted that the interstate-commerce power constitutes a blank check, not just when Congress seeks to rectify gross historical iniquity, but for such purposes as overriding state decisions to permit local cultivation of medical marijuana. I wonder how quickly the classic Libertard argument that states rights is a […]
