Is it dead? Let’s hope so.
Why are we so afraid to call socialists socialists?
My thoughts on the recent activity on the Hill, over at Popular Mechanics.
The word racist is losing its sting. Racism used to be such a horrible thing to call someone, but since Obama became President it has been over-used by the left to describe anybody who disagrees with Progressive politics. It doesn’t seem as evil a word as it used to be, that is very sad.
…Damn, those lefty “reporters” really hate Andrew Breitbart. They couldn’t wait to pounce on him for this story despite the fact that they couldn’t have read his post that well. Do they hate him for his politics or because he does their job much better than they do? I pick both.
I did a radio interview on a Fargo station a couple hours ago (yes at 5:10 AM PDT) on my PJM piece, and have another one scheduled on the Martha Zoller show at 8:20 this morning (11:20 Eastern, in Gainesville, GA). We do seem to need a new word to describe the concept of thinking that someone else is inferior because they have a different hue to their skin, because the leftists have removed all useful meaning from the word “racism.”

Yes, there does seem to be overshoot the other way. She’s certainly no saint, particularly given her slander of Fox News.
When you’re trying to come up with a compromise in a hurry, it’s pretty much impossible to come up with a proposal that makes sense. “Major Tom” has already reviewed the numbers in the Senate Authorization, in comments over at Space Politics. Jeff’s site doesn’t seem to have comment permalinks, so I’ll move it to the front page here: Continue reading The Budget Is Busted
Leave it to the Taiwanese to lead the way. It’s pretty funny, even if you don’t
understand or read Cantoneseeven if you don’t understand Mandarin or read Chinese.
I’m one of the few people who moved into California, apparently. Though we actually did consider moving to Dallas instead. And the hemmorhaging from southeast Michigan is amazing.
