Keystone XL Pipeline Blocked Because Warren Buffett Says So

From the first time the Keystone XL Pipeline bill was brought to Congress, Democrats have voted against it. Barack Obama has repeatedly stated that he would veto the bill if it made it to his desk.

Harry Reid Keeps his Billionaire Donors a Secret by Attacking Koch Brothers

For the past several weeks Senate majority leader “Dirty” Harry Reid has been trying to tell the “truth” about the Unaffordable Care Act, or Obamacare.

Killing the Keystone Pipeline for Crony ‘Capitalists’ and More Regulations

By all accounts, the Keystone Pipeline, the line that would transport oil from both Canada and the Bakken oil fields in North Dakota to Texas, is dead.

Explaining Warren Buffett’s Shift to the Left

Warren Buffett has released his annual encyclical on the need to raise taxes for the wealthy, from the New York Times, the de facto cathedral of the Church of Enlightened Envy.

Bruce Springsteen Wants to “Take Care of Our Own” With Other People’s Money

I don’t have any problem with musicians, actors, and athletes making boat loads of money. It’s a free world. They’ve developed a skill or a persona that people want to pay money to be part of, more power to them. But here’s what really ticks me off. When these same self-righteous do-nothings support a political […]

The News is Not all Bad

There’s still hope for America! It’s going to be a bumpy ride, but we can’t let political potholes get in the way of making a sea change in Washington. I’ve said this before — the presidency is not the only battlefront. We might not like what we’re going to get in November at the top […]
