“Leading from behind is not leading. It is abdicating. It is also an oxymoron. Yet a sympathetic journalist, channeling an Obama adviser, elevates it to a doctrine. The president is no doubt flattered. The rest of us are merely stunned.”  – Charles Krauthammer More …

Go Canada!

I am a HUGE Stephen Harper fan: He went to U of C (Go Dinos!), likes the Flames and attends a CMA church. How could I NOT like him? And the good news is, it looks like his Conservative Party will FINALLY get a majority in the Canadian Parliment this year.  This is a bellweather election • Read More »

Trainwreck

April 25, 2011 | By admindude | Comments Off on Trainwreck | Filed in: Uncategorized.

Thomas Friedman’s favorite country has a problem. Hmmm, looks like another bad “investment” by a government fixated with high-speed rail.  High-speed rail is costing them billions ($27.7b USD in 2011 alone!) with losses and debt service for the forseeable future.  With over $250 billion in debt, the Chinese Railways Ministry has a deep hole to • Read More »

A Bad Investment

April 24, 2011 | By admindude | Comments Off on A Bad Investment | Filed in: Uncategorized.

Looks like the taxpayers lost again.  The US Government is planning to sell its stake in GM at a loss, somewhere in the neighborhood of $11 billion.  With politically-connected finance people like Dan Akerson at the helm, some are predicting that its only a matter of time before GM fails again. This is becomming a • Read More »

No means no my Brother!

April 21, 2011 | By admindude | Comments Off on No means no my Brother! | Filed in: Uncategorized.

When it comes to violating the Arizona Constitution’s gift clause, no means no. Corporate welfare is wrong, even when it comes to local sports teams.  What makes the saga of the Phoenix Coyotes (past and future Winnipeg Jets?) even worse is the level of desperation shown by the City of Glendale.  Apparently, both the city • Read More »

When Doves Cry

April 21, 2011 | By admindude | Comments Off on When Doves Cry | Filed in: Uncategorized.

I am wondering if the Artist Formerly Known as Prince can hear the sounds of anti-war protests? Me neither. Others have noticed this too.  Its almost as if the protests were rooted less about policy differences and more about partisan politics.  Now that a Democrat is present in the Oval Office, the protests of the • Read More »

Fred Thompson: A uniter, not a divider

April 19, 2011 | By admindude | Comments Off on Fred Thompson: A uniter, not a divider | Filed in: Uncategorized.

The right and the left agree: Fred Thompson RULES.  HotAir:  “(The) average reporter in the MSM don’t take a dump without a plan, son.” (Explainer) The New Republic:  It’s a terrific window into what it’s like to be on the receiving end of pack journalism. It also makes me like Fred Thompson a lot more.  I • Read More »

Got this via Sonoran Alliance which shows how open-minded, civil, and polite our leftist friends are during a counter protest. I don’t watch TV news so I don’t know if any of the local MSM showed footage from this event but here it is for your viewing pleasure: I guess they were scared by normal • Read More »

I just got back from watching Atlas Shrugged:  Part I at the Valley Art Theater in Tempe. WOW! …not just because Taylor Shilling was so HOT as Dagny Taggert either.

Oh, the cruel irony of clicking on a link entitled “Americans Saving Money By Purchasing Surplus Military Equipment” and finding NOT A SINGLE M163 Vulcan Air Defense System for sale.  I, of course, blame the Obama administration for this cruel joke played on the Canadian American public. More …

No problem here, everything is alright, don’t worry because nothing is going to happen.

Calling a bluff in a 3AM poker game

April 12, 2011 | By admindude | Comments Off on Calling a bluff in a 3AM poker game | Filed in: Uncategorized.

Jonathan Chait is shocked, shocked that a man with zero executive experience and one and one half years in the U.S. Senate is a lousy negotiator.  Democratic partisans, like all partisans, generally overestimate the possibilities of winning better policy outcomes by simply having their leaders adopt more strident positions. That said, it really seems to • Read More »

Round One may have gone to the GOP, but its still only the first one.
