Starting the day with Bill Whittle

From Afterburner: "Rule of Lawlessness."

What’s the old saw about the inmates and the asylum?

Voting Drives In State Hospitals Will Continue. The director of [North Carolina] state facilities for the mentally ill and developmentally disabled said his department will continue to offer annual voter registration and voting assistance for patients and residents. He also said that while efforts are made to notify patients’ guardians about voting activities, a patient’s […]

Why? (UPDATED)

It seems that vote totals for Romney keep going up, making up the alleged 3 million vote "deficit" we had all heard about. Here is a link with raw vote totals. Romney, according to this chart, has surpassed the 60 million vote mark: Obama: 65,147,939 (50.91%) Romney: 60,610,074 (47.36%) Other: 2,209,061 (1.73%) A total voter turnout […]

The Problem for Republicans…

...is Democrats, and the liberal/"progressive"/socialist/leftist hordes they welcome into their political party.

Not surprising to me at all

I always expect the worst from Democrats -- and they never disappoint. From David Horowitz writing in Big Government, in its entirety: I am incredibly steamed this Thanksgiving Holiday over what the Democrats are doing to my country. Everybody by now knows – or should know – how readily Democrats conduct election fraud, and how determined […]

Larry Correia is pissed — and that’s good

Two magnificent rants about the election from one of my favorite authors, Larry Correia, author of the Monster Hunter series. First up, his post-election rant, "Congratulations, Obama voters": Bread and Circuses’ is the cancer of democracy, the fatal disease for which there is no cure. Democracy often works beautifully at first. But once a state […]

‘Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want, and deserve to get it good and hard’

A blog recommended by Luis -- with a really cool name in Latin, Vox Clamantis in Deserto (A Voice Crying in the Desert) -- has what I think is the best post-election rant of all:

Jungle King

I've been at a loss of words this week, a highly unusual state of being for me, yet, here I am. There is a question going around and around in my head that I can't seem to answer...where do we go from here? A whole lot of people that I know just look at me […]

The more things change…

...the more the stay the same. Doesn't this remind you of 'Hope and Change'? "Do not blame Caesar, blame the people of Rome who have so enthusiastically acclaimed and adored him and rejoiced in their loss of freedom and danced in his path and gave him triumphal processions and laughed delightedly at his licentiousness and […]

Boehner: Election a ‘mandate to work together’ with Dems

Any questions?

And, on a related note…

This is perfect. Via NetRight Daily.

“Going Galt” Part Two

On the plan for "Going Galt" ... It is time to hit Hollywood and the entire entertainment industry that smeared the prosthetic make-up on this guy and sold him to the gullible celebrity-minded Americans that cannot conceive of how to do a damn thing for themselves. Buy nothing, no product(s) ... movie ticket, concert ticket, […]

Thomas Sowell on ObamaCare

In The American Spectator: "Waiving Freedom." Among the objections to Obamacare, one that has not gotten as much attention as it should is the president's power to waive the law for any company, union, or other enterprise he chooses. The 14th Amendment to the Constitution provides for "equal protection of the laws" for all Americans. […]

Suicidal tendencies, part 2

Alan Caruba at Accuracy in Media: "America Commits Suicide": [...] The majority of voters ignored the realities of the nation’s economy. They failed to realize that Obama’s opposition to the vast wealth of America’s energy reserves of coal, oil, natural gas, and nuclear will only delay the nation’s way out of debt and dependency. In […]

A heartfelt missive about Tuesday’s election

I received this from a cousin Wednesday and thought I should share it with our constant readers. I cried last night. I'm a Sociologist (Ph.D. Ciencias Sociales, Universidad de La Habana,1956). So bear with me... In a difficult electoral battle Obama was reelected yesterday. I believe that in a quantified, tangible manner the process demonstrated […]
