Pope Punks Pelosi Pic

In my piece for Pajamas Media, I said that basically, the meeting between The Pope and The Pelosi would produce no fireworks, and that "...the impact of this meeting may not be felt until it has been forgotten."Well. Not quite. The Vatican - clearly as aware as Pelosi of the power of an image - made a point of releasing no photo, as "the encounter was private" and the pope "briefly greeted" Pelosi and did not mention any other subject they may have discussed.:Benedict spoke of the church's … [Read more...]

Obama & Dems: Put your dreams away…UPDATED

My husband works for a company that is trying to sell their product to places like Lowe's and Home Depot.I hear Obama say "BUILDING SPRAWL STOPS NOW!" and I think, there go 800,000 jobs. And along with those jobs, probably another 100,000 jobs in retail and business technologies.And there goes an awful lot of tax revenue. How we are supposed to pay for this beast of a bill without taxable earnings is something the great "I Won" - who can't say a positive word about industry, … [Read more...]

Obamarama Linkapalooza

Actually, the Linkfest will be coming up, but I had to share Chris Muir's great cartoon, (H/T Amused Cynic):Oh, come on, laugh! If you're not allowed to laugh at your president, then you're already not free!Check back for lots of links! Today will be a "day of continual linking" with constant updates, so keep coming back! One quick thought: If any congressional critter needs an excuse to suddenly "switch my vote in order to take a serious look at this provision, they've got it. And … [Read more...]

Thomas Sowell:Everyone is talking about how much money the government is spending, but very little attention is being paid to where they are spending it or what they are buying with it.The government is putting money into banks, even when the banks don't want it, in hopes that the banks will put it into circulation. But the latest statistics shows that banks are lending even less money now than they were before the government dumped all that cash on them.Even if it had worked, putting cash … [Read more...]

Telling it straight: Must reads – UPDATED

Charles Krauthammer gets it exactly right in this piece:In these most recent 20 years -- the alleged winter of our disrespect of the Islamic world -- America did not just respect Muslims, it bled for them. It engaged in five military campaigns, every one of which involved -- and resulted in -- the liberation of a Muslim people: Bosnia, Kosovo, Kuwait, Afghanistan and Iraq.The two Balkan interventions -- as well as the failed 1992-93 Somalia intervention to feed starving African Muslims (43 … [Read more...]

I miss Bill Clinton! – UPDATED

Yes, I do. I miss Bill Clinton.You know how bad this stimulus forever socialist bill and Obama/Pelosi's overall grandiose-ness is? This bad:It's making me miss Bill.I miss Bill, and I miss George W. Bush. I even miss George H.W. Bush, who I came to appreciate too late.By that what I mean is, I miss old-fashioned American presidents; flawed men who had no allusions that they were perfect. Men who (in Clinton's case) needed to be loved too much and (in Bush's case) didn't need it … [Read more...]
