Dr Thomas Sowell, Visigoth

“Barack Obama And Ruling By Presidential Decree” — a scandalous column for which there are only two words:   UnHelpful.

Sad. I can remember a time when Sowell presented reasonable opinions reasonably and didn’t engage in such naked rape of the political language.

I said Good Day, sir!

  1. That falls under the Black Political Bell Curve. Dr. Thomas Sowell is a black man expressing conservative opinions so he is obviously bat shit crazy insane.

    Meanwhile this Congressman is a super genius (because he has a “D” after his name).

  2. Legitimate posts only, please. Or else, for the good of the party, I’ll need you to leave the internet.

  3. Its good to be king. (SG-1 season 8 episode 13)

  4. Speaking of the Frum’s, the Kathleen Parker’s & the Rick Moran’s, Jonah had a good post in The Corner today (with a link to some of his old stuff) on Tanenhaus & Saletan.

  5. I have some advice for the good of the party: “STOP CUTTING YOURSELF! CUT THE ENEMY INSTEAD! TRY USING YOUR SHIELD! “

  6. NRO and Rich Lowry redeem themselves admirably, here, on a topic unrelated to Akin.

    Be sure to read the attorney’s letter to Mann. It’s a beauty.

  7. Obama stopped in Ohio today. Or was it OAHA ? OIHA? OIHO?

    Well done!

  8. Di, there’s a lot of hilarious legal “Demand letters vs. Response letters” out there on the interwebs, but this is one of my favs.

  9. Conservatives rightly believe that “original intent” are not dirty words and that First Principles are in many ways as valid today as they were 220 years ago.

    But over the decades, conservatism lost its flexibility in delineating a coarse ideology from this philosophy.

    – Yes, absolutely true. But I would submit its not really rooted in some “inflexibly rigid ideology”, but rather the result of stressed out over reaction to decades of watching the country crawling ever more closly toward a full up Socialistic entitlement based, statist papacy, along with the attemps, and partial successes of the Left, to tear apart every vestige of family unit and moral/religios values.

  10. – Looks like the Left have decided on the narrative they think will provide Jug ears cover all the way to the elections.

  11. The comments on that rightwingnuthouse (Rick Moran?) post make me very sad.

  12. whi

    That don’t add up for. Not even close. So I’m asking around some more. And I’m not the only one. Nothing is coming back. Finally get a call into the Old Man. Alert him to my concerns. Within 30 minutes he gets back to me. We got legit Intel from military source. Nothing concrete. Which got our source’s attention. That is a big red alert. This thing is being planned. Staged. Might be a handful of local law enforcement in on it. Apparently a related communication from DHS within the last 24 hrs. Union thugs. Got to be a Jarrett Gerard initiated plan. Something along those lines.

    I’m giving you and your readers a heads up here. False flag. The real deal. They will try and control it but make it look uncontrolled. Dangerous. Make it reflect poorly on the Republicans and their supporters. A dangerous and desperate operation here. Even a dimwit like Biden has to know how dangerous.

    So have everyone you can reach, all your readers, let them know. Obama operatives are attempting a set up here. Dimes to dollars that’s what is going down.

    Will update if more becomes available. The Old Man is on it now. Pushing heavy influence to deflect. One or two secure media sources made aware. The Romney people will be alerted, though they might have already been thinking along the same lines. Trying to confirm that now. If this thing is legit, we are going to try and shut it down within the next 48-72 hrs. Won’t say more on that.

    If they do go operational on this next week, you and your readers will know what it is and what it isn’t. Hoping it don’t get that far, but these maniacs are getting so desperate now they are trying to pull it off.


  13. nr —

    Didn’t they already find pipes and bricks planted on some nearby rooftops in Tampa? I could have sworn I read or heard that somewhere.

  14. It’s hard to know what can and what can’t safely be put past the maladministration responsible for Fast & Furious.

  15. I linked a story out of Tampa to that effect a day ago. Here’s a reprise at Breitbart.

  16. With the Dems going all pro-abortion at the convention and having a large LGBT presence then this added topping should in a real world lead to some fireworks.

    But since all the leaders of the above groups only are about power and consider their positions simply boob bait for lefty Bubbas, they will all get along quite nicely in public.

  17. Geoff B: On Twitter today I wrote something along the lines of, Between the Islamists and the social libs, I half expect the Dem convention to end with a same sex marriage ceremony followed immediately by a beheading.

    It was widely retweeted.

  18. Don’t worry, sunny-dee: they are like a perfect little time capsule of aggressive wrongness. As is nearly everything Moran has written since 2008.

    Which is why he is the editor of American Thinker and works at PJM, and I have this blog.

  19. John Stuart Mill explained the dangers in that kind of government long ago: “A government with all this mass of favours to give or to withhold, however free in name, wields a power of bribery scarcely surpassed by an avowed autocracy, rendering it master of the elections in almost any circumstances but those of rare and extraordinary public excitement.”

    And the excitement is building.

    Holy shit that first Moran link was hilarious, he opens by bitching about the real definitions of Marxism and socialism not being appropriate for proggtards, then closes with a plea to keep calling them liberals?

    That is the very definition of ridiculous, what I say.

  20. they are like a perfect little time capsule of aggressive wrongness.

    it works ax joey hairplugs

  21. ”Jumah at the DNC” begins August 29 and will start with a Friday afternoon jummah prayer followed by other unnamed programs and events, leading up to the Islamic Regal Banquet. The following day will be an all day Islamic Cultural and Fun Fest …

    Islamic Fun Fest?


  22. “Allah did not create man so that he could have fun. The aim of creation was for mankind to be put to the test through hardship and prayer. An Islamic regime must be serious in every field. There are no jokes in Islam. There is no humor in Islam. There is no fun in Islam. There can be no fun and joy in whatever is serious.” — Ayatollah Khomeini


  23. There is no humor in Islam. There is no fun in Islam.

    Mighty Mohammed has struck out.

  24. Best joke in the Bible?

    (I’m still fondest of the one at the end of Jonah.)

  25. i think islam is a joke

  26. That was a joke, right? I read those links then skipped to the top of Nuthouse, which honestly I expected to be a happy place at first, then read the latest thing before the radio shows, and it occurred to me what is so frustrating over there, as I read a few paragraphs twice mindful of each sentence, each paragraph goes: wrong generalization, unstated observation conclusion or opinion, wrong, wrong, wrong, conclusion right.

    Then next paragraph: wrong generalization, unstated observation conclusion or opinion, wrong wrong, wrong, conclusion right. That’s pretty much the style it seemed. Like A Handmaiden’s Tale, once you get the schizophrenic rhythm the annoyance runs smoothly. Eminently disagreeable and agreeable. And then the comments are retarded. Those versions of reality they’re showing, so much of it cartoons, will not serve well when the real-life steamroller comes.

  27. Didn’t they already find pipes and bricks planted on some nearby rooftops in Tampa? I could have sworn I read or heard that somewhere.

    Building materials! You see? Democrats bring things with which to build and Republicans see only a means to destroy!

  28. Islamic Fun Fest?

    – Cliterectomy races, followed by a drawing for 10 winners to recieve all expenses paid Ramadan vacations in the Sahara, with a Camel or goat date of your chioce.

  29. Most of the arabs I know are mainly into prated video games and hurting themselves off road biking. I think they need to get at least one semi-injury per month or they are moved buy a more expensive bike and take to biking in even weirder terrain. I was afraid to tell any of them about Fredricksburg lest they try to bike down enchanted rock or something.

  30. Islamic Fun Fest?

    i hope code pink shows up in their vagina costumes selling ginzu knives.

  31. Building materials! You see?

    – The signage of GuyFawkes and the number 99 was left over from an old Maxwell Smart TV episode they shot in Tampa……nothing too see here folks….

  32. Speaking of Tampa, White House Insider suggests Biden is bringing the freaky super deaky with him.

    Meanwhile, Kevin Williamson goes there.

  33. prated -> pirated.

    Most of them seem to be only nominally islamic. They like iphones a lot. They eat a sesame seed paste that is a whole lot like peanut butter when smeared on bread.

  34. Best joke in the Bible?

    The ending to the Soddom and Gommorah story.

  35. There seem to be an awful lot of Hollywood types at the DNC. What exactly do George Clooney and Eva Langoria (sp?) have to add to the discussion? They’re pretty and all, but not the sharpest tools in the shed.

  36. Jeff, as an inauthentic Jew you are uniquely well positioned to know what an inauthentic Black looks and sounds like.

  37. Best joke in the Bible?

    When Job finally tells his friends, who are piling on after he loses everything, “miserable comforters are ye all.”

    Seems apropos.

  38. God telling Sarah at her ripe old age that she was pregnant was kind of a mean joke on the Almighty’s part.

    Sarah had brass though. She laughed at Him.

  39. – Hmmm…..must be where my dearly departed got it from – :)

  40. God telling Sarah at her ripe old age that she was pregnant was kind of a mean joke on the Almighty’s part.

    Sarah had brass though. She laughed at Him.

    Hagar didn’t think it was a bit funny.

  41. “and also much cattle” seems to me still the best punchline.
