I'm happy to see that secular-progressives have found religion. That is to say, powerful, emotional, committed belief, unencumbered by scientific underpinning.
We're told to fear warming that's not happening, rising seal levels that are not rising, shrinking sea ice that's not shrinking.
Believe me, and not your own eyes. I guess that goes for our 'improving economy,' as well.

Ah, the tolerance of the enlightened left comes shining through. How about those who'd like to become rich? Much tougher in the current clime. The wealthy are the most maligned minority others would like to join.

Congress? An inconvenience.
The Constitution? An obstacle to be overcome.
Fifteen times as many executive orders as any other president in history.
If only Obama were as smart as he thinks himself to be.
If only Obama were as tough on our enemies as he is on our allies.
If only gall were courage, he would be a great man.
Worst in history, and it's not close.posted @ Wednesday, January 29, 2014 - 09:14
Yet another multiple gun murder in a mall. This time, it was in Maryland, a state with very strict gun control laws. How long, how many lives will it take until gun grabbers realize gun control takes weapons only from law abiding folks?
Gun free zone = happy hunting ground.
The overall US murder rate is one of the highest in the world. However, when you omit statistics from areas with the strictest gun control - D.C., New York, Chicago, etc. - we are near the lowest in the world.
For heaven's sake, folks, figure it out.posted @ Wednesday, January 29, 2014 - 09:09
It's "the defining challenge of our time," says President Barack Obama...
whose policies have made it much worse than ever. But he'd like to do so much more. Perfect. If only he were as smart as he thinks himself to be.
Here's one glaring error:
"Q. Does it matter if some people are much richer than others?
... It can slow economic growth, in part because richer Americans save more of their income than do others."
No, they invest more. That stimulates the economy and provides jobs and growth.
Another flaw in the statistics underlying this analysis:
"Saez's figures don't include government benefits, such as Social Security or food stamps, or employer payments for health insurance, that benefit the less-than-rich."
The lowest income quintile spends, on average, 140% of their annual income. Guess where the extra money comes from - you and me.

[quote][b]avenger[/b] - @snarkydude: Had the same remark been made by a conservative commentator, the left would still be shrieking that they be fired.
Actually many on the left, me included, think that A&E made a huge mistake by suspending Phil Robertson. Phil has a perfect right to make asinine comments about gays and blacks. But we also have the right to call him on his comments. That is what a free society is all about. [/quote]

In a recent Gallup poll, 72% of respondents cited big government as the greatest threat to the nation, while 22% cited big business. The public is figuring it out.posted @ Tuesday, December 31, 2013 - 15:06
@loveUSA: Yep. The worthless MSM bend over backward to avoid mentioning the 'mission' of the expedition - to collect empirical evidence of global warming. Apparently, the belief of these warmists is invulnerable to empirical evidence.
Still, it's good that progressives have religion, of sorts.

Chik-Fil-A revenues are still as a result their punishment. If GQ didn't want Phil to voice his opinion, they ought not to have asked him. They wanted controversy. They got controversy.

Summary: I'm not saying it's lonely to be a movie critic, but we often find ourselves seated alone in an empty theatre when we're watching new stuff. I know people who say they won't go see anything unless they have at least one other person to go with, but I've always enjoyed having the place to myself.

As you might imagine, the vast majority of the editorial cartoons available these days for publication through the syndicate which supplies cartoons to the Athens Banner-Herald/OnlineAthens are addressing the situation in Ferguson, Mo., where the fatal shooting of a black teen by a white police officer has touched off a number of demonstrations -- some peaceful, but many not at all peaceful, with tear gas fired by police officers and gunshots fired by some protester. read more
