Frank Zappa Salute To A No-Talent Rodeo Clown On The Occasion Of His Departure

by Smitty Powerline captures something key about #OccupyResoluteDeskLivesMatter: Obama is a man from nowhere, a citizen of the world. So where will he live, post-presidency? Washington, D.C., of course–his only real home. He isn’t going anywhere. This recalls some classic Frank Zappa from Ship Arriving Too Late To Save A Drowning Witch (itself probably not […]

They Have a ‘Right’ to Your Money

Did you ever wonder why the “healthcare crisis” became such an issue? Why did Democrats ram ObamaCare through Congress with Nancy Pelosi claiming, “We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it”?

Suggestion For What To Do With Hillary

by Smitty When you’re on active duty in the military, much hay is made about the concept of a “lawful order”. You’re to obey all orders, per General Order Number 6. While you retain the absolute right of self defense, you also had better not violate International Law (e.g. Geneva Conventions), Civil Law, or engage […]

@instapundit: “I Was Never #NeverTrump”

by Smitty For that matter, I was never #NeverTrump. I’ve always said that I’d support him as the nominee, even though he wasn’t my first, or second, or third choice. Even Ed Driscoll here isn’t a #NeverTrump guy. I was always Trump-willing in the specific case of a third-party run with a JEB nomination. We […]
