A couple of readers have complained that we are being partisan in our coverage of the IRS enemies list scandal. For those who feel this way, we do not mean to be and we have plenty of disdain for both of the major parties. Keep reading and you will see this to be true.
A good article from The Great White North.
I know for you for Yankee readers this may seem par for the course given what we’ve recently learned, but Billy Graham was for multiple decades kind of the “protestant pope.” (Though he would have hated being called that.) That his organization was targeted by the IRS (according to Franklin Graham) is a big deal.
It’s just a bit too obvious now. When Jon Stewart is defending the Tea Party folks something has rumbled through the body politic.
If the Associated Press feels concerned enough to call a Democratic president out for intimidation tactics, something weird is going on.
Plug in education level, age, and annual income, and poof—your cost. Good job Independent Institute.
The IRS is the key enforcer, implementer, etc for Obamacare. This should have never been allowed to happen in the first place, but in the wake of the “enemies list” scandal the American people should insist on a total revamp of the program (at the very least) and the removal of the Internal Revenue Service as chief administrator.
This is a pretty interesting clip if one has watched MSNBC over the past 4 years. While Fox is absolutely biased toward the Republicans, MSNBC has outdone Fox in rabid partisanship in recent years. This is my opinion only of course, but I do watch and read stuff from both sources avidly and I think this is a fair assessment.
Klein seriously wrote this. It’s in print for all to see. And what is crazy is I think he actually believes what he wrote.
I once almost literally stumbled into a Tesla dealership. I was walking back to the Metro after a lunch meeting somewhere in Downtown Washington DC when I looked over and in the bottom floor of a mirrored glass building were 2 Teslas and a salesman.

Commerce Secretary Penny Pritzker? What’s next? Labor Secretary Donald Trump? SEC Chairman Bernie Madoff?
It appears that someone has had an outbreak of honesty brought on by the prospect of not having to get re-elected.
I absolutely believe that our methods in the Middle East over the last half century have been colossally wrongheaded. That is kind. In our fear that we would lose access to oil, the substance our economy runs on, we have done some very un-American things. People are dead who should not be. The world is more chaotic (very arguably) because of our tear assing around in the Old World desert.
It’s one thing for The Blaze, Glenn Beck’s online vehicle to report this (as it did in February) it is another when The Associated Press does it. There is a lot of smoke coming from the White House these days.
The environment is very important to us at Against Crony Capitalism. We believe in a cleaner planet, we are fans of trees, we like vast expanses of rain forest, we like environmentally friendly materials and energy. But in order for something to be considered truly sustainable it must be sustainable economically. Does the market want a material or form of energy at a cost which makes sense? If the answer is no, if a project is not economically sustainable, it should not be done.
