A Tea Party Wedge into Silicon Valley?

Kudos to Orrin Hatch for taking the message of free markets to those who thought that Obama was pro-free enterprise and are now jaded enough to try something new, like freedom. Small to mid-size companies are attractive targets to patent trolls because they don’t have the resources to defend themselves in court. And no fledgling • Read More »

Another tradition soon to be lost

December 3, 2014 | By exurbankevin | 1 Comment | Filed in: Democrats, Kevin, Law, politcs, Politics.

It is traditional for ex-Presidents to stay out of the spotlight after their term(s) in office are over and let the next President have his/her shot at things without someone second-guessing their decisions. Does anyone REALLY think that our current Narcissist-In-Chief will follow that tradition, rather than jump into the spotlight and try to make • Read More »

Let me explain this simply, clearly and plainly. If you ally yourself with schoolteachers, restrictive sexual mores, speech codes and domestic spying, don’t be surprised when young people rebel against you.  Kapeesh? 

The Glower Behind The Throne

John Fund goes there:  On Capitol Hill, members of both parties are more and more mystified at Obama’s apparent disengagement from parts of his job. Months before he dropped the ball on ISIS, he failed to keep himself properly apprised of the problems with Obamacare’s website. Jarrett appears to exercise such extraordinary influence that in • Read More »

The Obama administration’s new attempt to spin away their decision to free five Taliban generals in return for one American soldier deserter may seem as stupid as the decision to make the trade, but it makes sense.  From a liberal point of view.  White House aides were aware Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl had been tagged a • Read More »

On SB1062

An ASU law prof weighs in on Arizona’s “controversial” anti-gay/pro-religious freedom bill and finds it to be a big, fat nothing-burger.  “…in Phoenix, Tucson and Flagstaff, which do extend rights based on sexual orientation, only the government can take action against an offending firm, with companies already able to claim a shield against government action • Read More »

Last week, the Congressional Budget Office released its assessment of Obamacare’s impact on the jobs market, and the message it sent to the few remaining supporters of the law was brutal. In its new budget outlook, CBO very clearly states that Obamacare amounts to an implicit tax on work and workers that will reduce employment • Read More »

Ten new gun bills in the Arizona Legislature

There’s a lot of variety in these new bills: Some of them appear to advance gun rights in Arizona, some don’t really affect the status quo in any meaningful way, and some try to repeal the gains that gun rights have made in the past few years.

If you were unfortunate enough to watch KPNX’s 6:00 news show yesterday, you would have been treated to one of the most blatantly pro-Democrat “stories” of the year running as their lead story. Apparently, according to CNN, 2013 won’t be known as the year that the IRS was used as a weapon of political chicanery • Read More »

Reality be damned, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathryn Sebelius has pronounced the Obamacare website “mostly not dead.”  Except, of course, it isn’t.  Weeks of frantic technical work appear to have made the government’s health care website easier for consumers to use.
