Mayors Daley And Nutter Cross A Line
  1 May 2010     3:17 pm

Despite having some of the most restrictive gun laws in the country, violence in Chicago has gotten so bad that some local politicians are calling for deployment of the National Guard.  It’s bad enough when gun control advocates can’t recognize the failure of their own policies, but now Mayor Daley has taken the anti-Second Amendment agenda to a whole new level.  Literally.
Along with several other mayors across the globe, Mayor Daley and Philadelphia Mayor Nutter have signed a resolution which fails to recognize the Constitution as the supreme law of …

New York Times Runs Racist Op-Ed Against Tea Party
  18 Apr 2010     3:13 pm

Charles M. Blow, a regular columnist for the New York Times, has taken the already despicable race narrative on the Tea Parties to another level.  He begins with a bit of “diversity” hunting:
I had specifically come to this rally because it was supposed to be especially diverse. And, on the stage at least, it was. The speakers included a black doctor who bashed Democrats for crying racism, a Hispanic immigrant who said that she had never received a single government entitlement and a Vietnamese immigrant who said that the Tea …

Thank You, Mr. President
  17 Apr 2010     1:13 am

President Obama is apparently feeling unappreciated.  “You would think they’d be saying thank you,” he said about the Tea Party protests at a recent Democratic fundraiser. In his mind, he’s worked hard his first year adjusting taxes for our benefit. And for what? Nary a Tea Party thank you has been offered.  Instead he’s faced protests, anger and mockery.  No more, I say.  It’s time we gave the President the thanks he knows he deserves, Tea Party style.
Thank you, Mr. President, for raising taxes on those dastardly smokers.  Millions of …

Give Patients A Reason To Say No, Not Government
  10 Apr 2010     2:07 pm

David Leonhardt of the New York Times discovered in a recent column that health care is not a free and unlimited good.  Some way or another, a certain amount of demand will not be met.  People cannot get all that they want because it is a scarce good and is restrained by the same laws of supply and demand – and physics – as all goods.
What is interesting, though, is that the New York Times suddenly finds denying care to be a great development.  But isn’t this exactly what the …

Lefties Claim They Can’t Find Anyone to Argue That Obamacare is Unconstitutional
  3 Apr 2010     6:00 am

The University of Washington held a “debate” over the constitutionality of the health care bill in which none of the participants argued it was at all unconstitutional. Explaining this farce, the university claimed they couldn’t find any law professors to argue the opposing view. Liberal blogs such as TalkingPointsMemo and Think Progress, the blog for the Soros funded mouth-piece known as Center for American Progress, picked up the story to brag that the left can’t find any law professors to argue that Obamacare is unconstitutional. Clearly they …

And Bullies Bully
  28 Mar 2010     4:22 pm

Dr. Clouthier recently reminded us that legislators are prone to legislating.  They see all problems as solvable via legislation, just as surgeons see all health problems as correctable through surgery.  But over the last century or so, there’s something else that legislators have also done with increasing regularity: they’ve bullied.
Reacting to the recently passed health care legislation, a number of companies have assessed the increasing costs they are likely to face.  Companies such as Verizon, Caterpillar, AK Steel, John Deere and AT&T are writing down hundreds of millions of dollars …

I’ll Gladly Take The Constitution Over Precedent
  27 Mar 2010     12:59 am

The LA Times gloats that precedent is against the states seeking to protect their sovereignty in the face of Obamacare unconstitutional onslaught.
Reporting from Washington – Lawsuits from 14 states challenging the constitutionality of the new national healthcare law face an uphill battle, largely due to a far-reaching Supreme Court ruling in 2005 that upheld federal restrictions on home-grown marijuana in California.
At issue in that case — just like in the upcoming challenges to the healthcare overhaul — was the reach of the federal government’s power.
…They said the Constitution gave Congress …

Federal Worker Pay Outpaces Private Sector
  6 Mar 2010     1:20 pm

The productive sector of the economy is having to shoulder quite the burden when it comes to paying the salaries for their “public sector” cohorts, who USA Today finds are excessively compensated:
Federal employees earn higher average salaries than private-sector workers in more than eight out of 10 occupations, a USA TODAY analysis of federal data finds.
…Overall, federal workers earned an average salary of $67,691 in 2008 for occupations that exist both in government and the private sector, according to Bureau of Labor Statistics data. The average pay for the same …

Fannie Mae Gets Another $15.3 Billion Of Taxpayer Money
  28 Feb 2010     11:05 am

On Friday Fannie Mae announced a loss of $16.3 billion for the fourth quarter of 2009.  It then ran hat-in-hand to the Treasury, requesting another $15.3 billion in taxpayer aid.  That makes $76.2 billion that has so far been requested by Fannie Mae.  Oh, and Fannie says yet more of your money will be needed in the future.
Let us not forget that Fannie Mae, with its implicit government guarantee, was a primary contributor to the mortgage and financial crisis that began in 2008.   Under pressure from politicians to expand home …

Allow Myself To Introduce… Myself
  27 Feb 2010     7:54 pm

In my first post here on Right Wing News, I want to thank John for affording me this opportunity.  I’ve been a long time reader and admirer of his work, and when I saw him at CPAC I couldn’t pass up the opportunity ask about contributing.
A little about myself: I am 26 years old and living in the greater DC area (boo, hiss).  I have a graduate degree in Political Science (boo, hiss), and have recently interned at a couple policy organizations here in DC (boo, hiss).  I hope you …
