"Conservatives will never win by meeting the Left halfway to the Eurosocialist tar pits; they’ll win by unequivocally stating and defining the irreducible principles of liberty and Constitutional government, again and again and again.” - Mike Hendrix

They should try this more often...


Sierra Club President Michael Brune:

We’ve got Republicans in Congress who are willing to hold the entire government hostage simply to give a Christmas present to industry.
Wow!  Somehow the congressional Republicans found enough guts to advance the Republican agenda by "hold[ing] the entire government hostage.”  Horrors!  Keep this up and, next thing you know, they’ll be acting like the Democrats, instead of a like a bunch of candy-assed wimps.

And Michael, from where I sit a more stable oil supply combined with lower energy prices makes a pretty good Christmas present for everybody, not just industry.   Well, everybody who doesn’t want us to freeze in the dark, that is.  Unlike many of your friends in the Progressive Establishment.

Althouse finds propaganda displacing objective news coverage, gets confused...


Ann Althouse:

This isn’t serious analysis of what the state did and the real effect on workers.  It’s more of an effort to propagate hysteria.
That’s the whole point.

“Employment oblivion” at the stroke of a pen


Bill Quick:

...in this case, "stroke of a pen” consignes several hundred thousand people to employment oblivion, thus improving the useless "headline” number by nearly half a point while at the same time covering up the abysmal nature of employment in America these days.
...
I once said that at this rate, we’d end up with zero unemployment, because we’d have zero people in the labor force looking for work.

The New York Times: “...so much more bigoted than it was a generation ago.”


Glenn Reynolds:

I have a comment and a question. Comment: The New York Times would never spread fear, uncertainty and doubt about a Muslim candidate’s religion in this fashion. Question: When George Romney ran in 1968, was the New York Times fretting about his Mormonism?
Some questions really don’t need asking...
