Americans Must Suffer

Watching Barack Obama and his shutdown shenanigan theatre, I discovered I have something in common with our inchoate president — we both want Americans to suffer. As a sociopathic solipsist, Obama is incapable of feeling anyone’s pain, and because of this, his goal has been to make this shutdown as agonizing as possible. Ted Cruz, […]

What Obama Thinks of Americans

We know how Barack Obama feels about Mitt Romney. He holds him in contempt — and, speaking through his proxies, has all but called him a felon, tax cheat, and murderer. Who cares?  Trash talk is Obama’s political lingua franca.  He relishes delivering these insults face-to-face while shielded by the respect his victims have for […]

Science: Americans Are Too Stupid for Democracy

Via Life’s Little Mysteries: The democratic process relies on the assumption that citizens (the majority of them, at least) can recognize the best political candidate, or best policy idea, when they see it. But a growing body of research has revealed an unfortunate aspect of the human psyche that would seem to disprove this notion, […]

Americans Are Better Than Who Obama Thinks We Are

Along with their ever-present accusation that anyone who criticizes or disagrees with America’s first black president is a racist, class envy is the centerpiece of Obama’s re-election campaign. It is extremely disheartening that the president of the United States believes he can win the votes of a majority of Americans by exploiting the sin of […]

Americans Elect: Obama’s Third-Party Tar Pit

Anyone with the remotest interest in replacing Barack Obama as America’s president in 2012 should take his eyes off Iowa and the boring ups and downs of the race for the Republican nomination. The real action that may well decide our next president is quietly going on elsewhere, in the state offices that qualify candidates […]

Obama, Tax-Cutting Friend of Working Americans

I’m trying to hold in one of those Howard Dean screams…aaaarrrgh! Sorry, couldn’t help myself. In the past week, the White House has been drawing a picture of a great battle to save the “middle class,” in which Barack Obama the tax cutter is fighting hypocritical Republicans who want to raise taxes on “working Americans,” […]

Thanking America: When Americans Save Lives Overseas, it Doesn’t Make the Textbooks

In October 1914, over 5 million Belgians faced starvation.  The German Army had invaded on August 4 and swept across the country in three weeks.  Revisionist historians would later snicker about “atrocities” invented by the British, but the Kaiser’s troops executed over 5,500 Belgians, women and children as well as men, though there was no […]

General Fuller’s Career-Ending Message for Americans

One of America’s top generals in Afghanistan was fired last Friday for making “inappropriate public remarks.” Major General Peter Fuller’s career-destroying offense was to publicly criticize Afghanistan President Hamid Karzai for saying during an October 22nd interview with Pakistani news media that that if the U.S. and Pakistan got into a war, he and Afghanistan […]
