Ronald Reagan

Defeatist Democrats and The Lethargic Left

I'm a loser, I'm a loser,
And I'm not what I appear to be

      - The Beatles (written by John Lennon), "I'm A Loser"


Is it just me or are the Democrats a pathetic bunch of losers who are too spineless to stand up forcefully for anything they believe in?

The Lovefest Continues: Sarah Palin on Africa, NAFTA and more

Seemingly intent on proving every last word of my recent rant (Fear and Loathing in The Heartland: Republicans' Lovefest With Ignorance) to be true and factual, senior aides to John McCain have been leaking details about Sarah Palin and, man, are they ever doozies! If these reports are true, she's somehow even worse than she seemed in those Katie Couric interviews.

I must say, I fully appreciate these McCain aides backing up my theory about Republicans being completely infatuated, if not downright in love, with stupidity. However, I'm still a little confused by their motives.

Freedom Fetterers: The Story of a Bankrupt Philosophy

Uncle Ron and The Deregulators

Once upon a time, way back in the 1980s, some seemingly intelligent people (economics professors at the Chicago School of Economics, led by Milton Friedman, for instance) and some not particularly intelligent people (Ronald Reagan, for one) agreed something had to be done. Their nation was suffering under the chains of regulation and the tyranny of oversight and, like some sort of Charles Bronson-Chuck Norris deregulatory tag team, they were going to save it and they didn't care who got hurt in the process.

It seems that fifty years earlier, way way back in the 1930s, some socialists with funny sounding names like Keynes and Roosevelt had tried to fetter capitalism.

And, as everyone knows, to fetter capitalism is to fetter freedom. And to fetter freedom is to fetter the American way of life.
