Obey Or Die

October 3rd, 2010 by dismuke · 23 Comments · Uncategorized

In the category of the Left bares its soul for all to see is this short video recently released by the environmentalist group 1010.    It pretty much makes explicit what has always been the Left’s attitude towards “global warming deniers” and others who refuse to jump on the bandwagon of their agenda. Pretty horrifying. […]

This video clip of CNN reporter Susan Roesgen arguing with and lecturing to a protester at the Chicago Tea Party has been widely posted on a number of blogs. If you have not yet seen it, definitely take a moment to do so – this reporter, as well as anchor back in the studio at […]

Atlas At Dallas Tea Party

April 16th, 2009 by dismuke · 5 Comments · Culture

I attended the Tea Party in downtown Dallas – one of several that were held yesterday throughout the Fort Worth/Dallas Metroplex.   I am not good at guessing crowd sizes – local media reports say that “several thousand” attended the downtown Dallas event.  The Fort Worth event was held in a stadium where it is […]

Calling A Spade A Spade

April 12th, 2009 by dismuke · 9 Comments · Culture

I  happened to be walking past the Ayn Rand selections in the fiction section of a bookstore last night and spotted an edition of Anthem that I had not seen before. When I opened it up,  I noticed a passage from Ayn Rand’s introduction to the book’s 1946 edition that I had forgotten about and […]

The Smallest Minority On Earth

March 31st, 2009 by dismuke · 15 Comments · Culture

Rush Limbaugh had an outstanding monologue on his program today in which he praised and quoted Ayn Rand – including significant reference to one of my favorite Rand quotes about the smallest minority on Earth being the individual. Limbaugh praised self-interest, denounced sacrifice and said that he planned to spend more time on the issue […]

The Next Margaret Thatcher?

March 25th, 2009 by dismuke · 7 Comments · Foreign Affairs

This very eloquent YouTube clip of British member of the European Parliament Daniel Hannan taking Prime Minister Gordon Brown to task is simply incredible and certainly equally applicable to our own Presidents Bush and Obama. He has a blog too.   While I have not yet had a chance to read very much of it, his […]

Dancing With The Ones Who Brung Them

January 9th, 2009 by dismuke · 7 Comments · Culture

I guess the ongoing financial implosion at The New York Times and its desperation to gain revenue wherever it can has gotten to the point that, in order to pick up a few more subscribers from its core audience, it no longer even pretends to be something other than a cheerleading Democratic Party version of Pravda.  […]

Killing The Golden Goose

December 27th, 2008 by dismuke · 3 Comments · Politics

Writing in the Wall Street Journal,  Michael S. Malone has an excellent column which provides an overview of some of  the disastrous wealth-killing regulations implemented over the past decade (all under the Bush Administration). These regulations, when combined with proposed increases in capital gains taxes,  will mean that, once the recession finally does bottom out, […]

Wealthy In Spite Of Themselves

December 27th, 2008 by dismuke · 3 Comments · Culture

Regarding the Madoff scandal, Chuck writes: “I can’t help thinking how similar it is to the characters who invested with the “playboy” version of Francisco D’Anconia, because he “knew how to make money.”  They did no research into the actual projects they were investing in. “ The Wall Street Journal recently ran an interesting article […]

Parody of Self-Sacrificial Bush

December 21st, 2008 by dismuke · 2 Comments · Politics

Somebody has put up a Leftists’ fantasy edition of The New York Times dated July 4, 2009.   Some of the parody articles are so well done that they are not even funny – they are all too chillingly realistic.    But one of them, “Court Indicts Bush on High Treason Charge” had me in […]
