We are all on Napolitano’s S List

Posted by Martin C. Fox on August 21, 2011

It won’t be long before anything with a heartbeat will on Big Sis’ S list.  If you want to be in with the DHS in-crowd a little sooner just be white and pay with cash, especially at a gun shop.   Check it out here.  If you work for CAIR or belong to the Muslim Mafia no worries.  If you are not so fortunate then consider a computer wash job after reading my blog by looking here.

Update:  DR’s comment is worth considering-

We’ve heard of the “moral majority” and the “silent majority.” You could refer to mainstream America as the compliant majority. The compliant majority will accept almost anything to preserve a society believed to hold a viable future. The bottom is hit when the compliant majority have nothing left and therefore nothing left to lose. Those perceived as fringe members are the first to be demonized. The rest are desensitized into believing that they have no heritage, no honor, and no identity.

Keeping the Keynes Delusion Alive

Posted by Martin C. Fox on August 6, 2011

Gary North  recently explains the difference between Keynesian and Austrian economics in terms simple enough even for me. He then asks the question why we continue down the Keynesian road to oblivion.

The world economic situation is one giant example of un-leashed Keynes. Government intervention in the marketplace, pumping fiat money into the system and generally enlarging that monolith that is government. The system doesn’t work but government’s typical solution is more of the same. The emphasis on MORE. Why indeed do we continue down this dark road? Read the rest of this entry »

Mr. Lubner was born a Republican (without a spine)

Posted by Martin C. Fox on August 2, 2011

Kathleen Parker, in today’s Erie Times News, thinks the Tea Partiers should be banned to the nether regions for weakening the Republican party. Kathleen is right but backwards. The traditional Republcan party is the spineless half bother who, like in a Castle movie, should be kept locked in the attic. Read the rest of this entry »

EJ Dionne-Sorry, I had to mention him

Posted by Martin C. Fox on July 24, 2011

As distasteful as it is, I feel I must talk about E.J.Dionne’s column. He writes today (24 July) that the Tea Party is the cause of the debt ceiling fiasco.
