Roanoke Times Endorses John Edwards

Because he's not a Republican.

After weeks of painstaking deliberation and fierce debate, the Times editorial board does what it does every time a Democrat goes up against someone who's not.

Such the pith.

Such the breadth.


I don't know who coined the term - taken from the Depression-era expression Hooverville, named for then-President Herbert Hoover.  But there is growing evidence that those "Occupy Wall Street" sites are evolving into shantytowns for the hopeless and the dispossessed.

Obama Care in all its glory.

With no evidence that conditions are going to improve ...

Last Man Standing?

Newt is gaining in the polls.  And starting to raise some serious cash.

Is he The One?

If only he didn't pull some bonehead move every now and then ...

Letting The 'Occupy Wall Street' Geniuses Define Themselves

There are a lot of leftists in this country who think it their responsibility to give definition to the "Occupy Wall Street" "protest."

Ignore them.

Let the protesters explain themselves.

Or try.

What a colossal embarrassment.

My favorite exchange between Howard Stern's reporter and Michael Moore's smarter twin:

Reporter: "What are you protesting here tonight?"

Idiot: "Uh, capitalism.  I'm here against capitalism itself."

Reporter: "Where are you defecating while you're here?"

Idiot: "Mostly at the McDonald's over there."

Earth to moron: That shelter where you gain respite is owned by one of the largest capitalist entities on the planet.

Corporations are evil.

No.  That's just McDonald's.  They do hamburgers and stuff.

Good God.

It's Us Against Them

And they carry the badges.  For what they're worth.
A federal agent shows up at a farm and demands to check out the property. The farmer says OK, but tells him not to go over to one pasture. Then the agent arrogantly tells him he has a badge from the federal Environmental Protection Agency and can go wherever he darn well pleases. The farmer says OK. A few minutes later, the agent is running for his life from a bull. The agent calls for help, so the farmer goes to the fence and yells: "Show him your badge."
We are not here to do their bidding.

It's time they understood that.

See "Rural Rebellion Brewing."

The Great Divide

The one sentence, of all the millions written, that defines the age in which we live:

At a million-dollar San Francisco fundraiser today, President Obama warned his recession-battered supporters that if he loses the 2012 election it could herald a new, painful era of self-reliance in America.

Nearly half the population of the United States of America is now reliant on a government check.

And the other half works overtime to pay for them.

This is going to change.  One way or another.

This Is Just Silly

Good grief:

What NBA stars and Occupy Wall Street protesters have in common

Let me guess.

Meaningless college degrees?

No. Get this: Oppression.

Spare me.  Please.


Twelve soldiers were killed in Afghanistan yesterday.  And there's not one person in the United States government who can tell us why.

My God.

You'll Not Read About This In The New York Times

Because it's a story about a Good Samaritan - with a concealed carry permit - who created conditions such that there is one less asshole in the world this morning:

You've heard the expression:

"When Seconds Count, The Police Are Only Minutes Away."

Here's living proof.

Key word being LIVING.

Which Is Worse?

A parent who spanks her child?

Or a parent who forces her seven-year-old son to "live life as a girl."

For the love of God.

'Occupy Wall Street' Attracts ALL the Crazies

Michael Moore and this guy, sharing the same urine-soaked sleeping bag.  It don't get better than this:

Former KKK Grand Wizard David Duke Supports Occupy Wall Street Movement

May they enjoy each other's company.

It Don't Mean a Thing ...

... if you ain't got that swing.
