An Appeal to Bruce Jenner

Jenner is a confused soul indeed. As if mutilating parts of one's body can change a man into a woman. It is as absurd as the 'marriage' of two of the same sex. Utterly impossible. I pity the fool.

The Problem with Romney Nostalgia

Cartwright Wrote: Jan 14, 2015 12:48 PM
It looks like it's time for the anti-Romney pundits to crawl out from their lairs and start whining. A couple of points are in order. First, many conservatives are angry with Romney simply for losing in 2012. I would like to remind everyone that neither Rand Paul, Sarah Palin, Ted Cruz, nor Scott Walker could have won in 2012. America is still too race-obsessed, and as horrible as Obama had been, there were just too many idiots who didn't want to feel like racists by not voting for him again. But there's a larger point; Mitt Romney is the only person in all of history to be the target of a billion-dollar smear campaign. Most politicians would suffer career ending reputation damage if they were subjected to the likes of the Obama machine's ruthless and well-funded dirt-digging and character-assassination assaults of 2012. Just the fact that Romney is still standing, and has the option to run for president again if he so chooses speaks volumes of his character. Of course, the Clinton machine will probably spend two billion smearing the Republican nominee in 2016. We already know Mitt Romney can survive that. And because Hillary is not black, America's thinking will likely not be so skewed as it was during the last two presidential elections.
Glad to hear it. Gruber belongs in jail. He's probably not going to jail, so he's going to have to wait until he meets his maker to get his just deserts. In the meantime, however, let's make him sweat.

The Ineffective Death Tax

Cartwright Wrote: Sep 14, 2014 6:54 AM
The so-called "death tax" is not a death tax at all, but an inheritance tax. The statists would have us believe the decedent pays the tax as a penalty for dying. But dead people don't pay taxes. It is the heir(s) to the estate who pay the tax. So it is an inheritance tax indeed. I suppose we should all take some comfort in the knowledge that the government can't really tax us after we die. But unfortunately, they can tax our heirs. This crooked scheme is right out of the Karl Marx socialist playbook as a way of transferring wealth from the hands of private citizens into the coffers of the state.

The Jihadists' Eternal Plan

Excellent and relevant article. The Islamists have never left us alone because they liked us, but only because they feared us. Because of that ridiculous buffoon we currently have installed in the White House, what do the jihadists have to fear of America these days? Not much.
I don't know why this doddering fool chooses to continually remind everyone why he never had a chance at the White House.
This has long been a defining contrast between the two parties. Both parties produce bad apples. Republicans tend to throw theirs out. Democrats promote theirs, and then pretend that in doing so, there was no bad to begin with. Over the years, Republicans have undoubtedly had more politicians resign in "disgrace" than Democrats. But Democrat disgrace abounds. The difference is that there is rarely a resignation following their disgrace. If anything, they celebrate when one of their own emerges virtually unscathed from a scandal that would bury a Republican. And of course they can always count on their loyal media to forget about investigative journalism and to look the other way when the accused has a D attached to his or her name. Could a Republican survive driving off a bridge while drunk and waiting nine hours to call for help while his passenger died? Or sexual assault in the Oval Office and perjury? Or the many recent unconstitutional power grabs that are now becoming almost routine? Not a chance. Many things uttered by Barack Obama, Joe Biden, and Harry Reid over the last few years would have easily ended the career of a Republican. They would have been major Republican scandals, with round-the-clock "bombshell" coverage (a la Todd Akin). Instead, each is a harmless 'mispeaking', forgotten a moment after it is spoken. But this is what you get with Democrats. It's the party first, the unions second, and the citizenry be damned.
So if you're a liberal, even racism is okay. The establishment Left and their media allies may not like it, but you can rest assured they will quietly sweep it under the rug, where it will soon become old forgotten news.
You got two things wrong, Ransom. First, as a conservative, I did not vote for McCain because of Sarah Palin. I voted for him because I would have voted against that unqualified and shady-looking Democrat (whom, to this day, still hasn't proven his eligibility to hold the office), regardless of who was running on the GOP ticket. And secondly, Sarah Palin would make a better president than Mitt Romney? Nope. Stupidest thing I've read in some time.
