Victory?

June 28, 2010

As a ship, capable of cleaning up Obama’s oil spill, steams its way to the gulf where it will probably not be allowed to help, Elena Kagan attempts to weasel her way into the nearly liberal body we call the Supreme Court. I say nearly liberal because they did uphold the Second Amendment today, 5-4.

5-4. Is that a true representation of the American people? I don’t mean the liberal urban hell where you stay, I mean all of America. Yes, if you live in Berkeley, California or Ann Arbor, Michigan, this probably is a true representation of the world as you know it. But beyond those “hallowed halls” of academia the sane world lurks waiting patiently for the libs to kill themselves off through stupidity like abortion and being unarmed in a dangerous world.

You might want to put a little more pressure on your liberal Senators regarding this Kagan thing. But back to the boat. The entire effort to clean this mess to date has yielded a little more than 600,000 barrels. The A-Whale is a converted tanker that can clean 500,000 barrels a day. Let’s see, 600,000 barrels in 60+ days or 500,000 barrels each and every day. I’ll take the A-Whale, pay the man Barry.

You may be wondering why Chairman Zero wouldn’t go for this. Well I’m glad you asked. You see, the A-Whale is owned by Taiwanese and fly’s a Liberian flag. I doubt if the flag or the owners bother Zero but they do bother his union buddies. Is that why Zero won’t wave the Jones Act. By the way, is that named for Ho Ho Ho Green Jobs Czar? Oh well, who needs the gulf anyway? We’ve got LA. To read about the A-Whale click here. Until next time, screw environmentalists.

The New Dustbowl

June 19, 2009

Is California the new dustbowl? New York? Michigan? The evidence is really starting to mount. Fleeing from the usual consequences of liberal policy (confiscatory taxes, a stagnant economy, and social degradation) the number of people leaving such states for greener pastures in conservative states is staggering.

The IRS has figures that show over a quarter of a million left California for Texas and Oklahoma from 2004 to 2007. That’s more than twice as many as went there from these places in the 1930’s. Check that with the Sacramento Bee at http://www.sacbee.com/topstories/story/1944947.html if you don’t believe me.

According to a migration survey by United Van Lines New York is second on their list at 59.5 percent. The percentage of those moving out of New York has continued to rise during the past three years. This from the Business Review at http://birmingham.bizjournals.com/albany/stories/2005/01/03/daily32.html

Michigan is just as bad, 11% of 600 people questioned in an EPIC-MRA Poll say they are likely or certain to leave in 5 years…that translates into roughly 600,000 people from the adult population. According to Craig Ruff, senior fellow at Public Sector Consultants Inc., “If we had a net loss of 600,000 people we would likely lose a seat in the United States House of Representatives.” This is from WZZM in Grand Rapids, MI.

What have we learned about liberal rule?
