Republicans, 2014?


A Tory voter writes:

"We voted for change.  We voted to rid our country of socialism, of compromise, of personal power and individuals’ self interest in the benefits of power.  We voted to protect our hard won standards, our culture and traditions and our pride in our unique nationhood...

"We tied what remained of our severely damaged hopes wishes and aspirations to the colours of a ‘new revitalised’ Party led by a professed Conservative, a man purporting to have presence on the world stage, a man supposedly of unwavering principle and courage, a protector of our country, our culture and our establishment.  Perhaps, we foolishly thought, with this man we will get our country back.

"Wrong on every count!.”

Now who do I know who’s clever enough to name a tomcat “Asbo”?

“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.

“...Each and every one of these gentlemen is a flaming hypocrite.”



"Flyovercountry” snarks:
Notice how it was no longer patriotic to simply donate to the IRS, it must be compulsory for all of us in order to attain that lofty perch of patriotism...

Each and every one of the men in this video has reached a level of success where they are permanently exempted from the consequences of their actions...  The rest of us are always left to deal...  It costs us in other ways, fewer jobs, higher inflation, inefficient markets, and much more.  We do not have a wealth gap in America, we have a consequence gap.

What do they have in common?


Today’s quiz:

...A former Congressman who apparently thinks it's actionable to criticize an elected official and that he has some sort of right to draw a paycheck from the federal government. ...An incompetent federal judge who seems unfamiliar with the protections established well over 200 years ago for political speech in this country or the idea of judicial conflicts of interest.

What do Driehaus and Black have in common?

Silm pickings


Roberta contemplates the dog’s breakfast that is the upcoming Indianapolis mayoral race:

...You can vote for a new mayor of any ideological hue you like, too -- as long as you like stupid.

Answer: Nothing whatever

Read it and weep  Dept
Kyle Smith, "What We Learned from Prohibition”:
[Ken Burns’] "Prohibition,” a three-part miniseries ... has many lessons to teach us about such antiquated, 1920s-era ideas as federal overreach, unfunded mandates to states, runaway taxation, a belief that great political leaders can accelerate human progress, crony capitalism, and of course the dire need of Washington to take steps to improve the lot of the poor and the children.

In other words, "Prohibition” is, to an almost mischievous extent, an investigative report about 2011.
And if our Political Class (and the voters who keep electing them) had learned anything from that experience, we wouldn’t be here now.

Hey Mr. President, are your ears burning yet?


So the President says America has "gotten a little soft”...

Larry Correia disagrees:

Maybe your golf buddies are soft, and your union thugs are soft, and your legion of academics that have never held a real job are soft, and the societal leeches that depend on the Democrats’ perpetual welfare state are soft, but most Americans are not soft.
...and he proceeds to explain, in a fine rant.  RTWT.

LATER, related:  Who’s weak?
...We’re now being treated to the spectacle of a President demanding passage of a bill his Party won’t support, peddled using the name of a billionaire who refuses to endorse it.
Only one thing left to do:  Cue the bunny rabbit.
