Introduction to Horror

September 24th, 2010 by Mike N · Comments Off on Introduction to Horror · Politics, The Horror File, Uncategorized

I took a look at the new Republican Pledge to America and I don’t like it at all. In the first paragraph of the introduction is this sentence: “America is the belief that any man or woman can – given economic, political, and religious liberty – advance themselves, their families, and the common good.” Right […]

More Obama Care Revelations

August 10th, 2009 by Mike N · 1 Comment · The Horror File

Principles in Practice, the blog of The Objective Standard, has an excellent analysis of some key elements in the health care bill now before the House, by Dr. John David Lewis. One case in point is the question ‘Will the Plan increase the government’s ability to scutinize our private affairs?’ His evaluation is: “1.This section […]

One Liberty, Indivisible

June 3rd, 2009 by Jim May · 5 Comments · Culture, Environmentalism, The Horror File

A few weeks ago, conservative John Derbyshire posted a revealing item over at National Review Online.  It is revealing, in that it exposes one of the fundamental commonalities between conservatism and the Left, that sets them in opposition to Americanism: the idea that there are different (and contradictory) “kinds” of freedom. Notice that Derbyshire characterizes […]

A Rant is Not an Argument

April 18th, 2009 by Bill Brown · 21 Comments · The Horror File

In general, I don’t put any stock in what an actor says about politics. The following video with Janeane Garofalo {via} is nothing I haven’t read in the leftist blogospere; what makes it unique is having it all in one place and making Keith Olbermann seem cool-headed in comparison: I enjoy these things because it […]

Watch this video (sorry, but I can’t embed) and read this transcript. Really makes you appreciate Daniel Hannan even more, doesn’t it?

La Plus Ça Change

February 5th, 2009 by Bill Brown · 1 Comment · The Horror File

From the “whatever-works-makes-for-strange-bedfellows” department: But no matter how much money we invest or how sensibly we design our policies, the change that Americans are looking for will not come from government alone. There is a force for good greater than government. It is an expression of faith, this yearning to give back, this hungering for […]

You may have seen this  story, which I found on the Drudge site.  Bill Gates, who clearly wants to make his audience feel guilty for not being their brothers’ keeper, unleashed a cloud of mosquitoes upon them:  ‘Malaria is spread by mosquitoes,’ Gates said while opening a jar on stage at the Technology, Entertainment, Design […]

Four Years of This

January 21st, 2009 by Bill Brown · 2 Comments · The Horror File

From the no-detail-about-The-One-goes-unreported department: It’s the same Oval Office. The same desk. Even the same curtains. But President Obama has already made one major change: Go through eight years of White House photos, and you won’t find one of former President Bush in the Oval Office without his jacket on. It wasn’t just a personal […]

Use Your Head, Not Your Hands

January 18th, 2009 by Bill Brown · 2 Comments · The Horror File

From the which-is-more-efficacious department: “Some passengers screamed, others tucked their heads between their knees, and several prayed over and over: ‘Lord, forgive me for my sins.’ But a man named Josh who was sitting in the exit row did exactly what everyone is supposed to do but few ever do: he pulled out the safety […]

Opportunity of Crisis

From the Emanuel-Rahm-is-Fred-Kinnan department: “Never let a serious crisis go to waste.”

The Ones Who Sold Them the Rope

November 27th, 2008 by Bill Brown · 1 Comment · The Horror File

From the cutting-your-own-throat department: In separate actions, the two trade groups, America’s Health Insurance Plans and the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association, announced their support for guaranteed coverage for people with pre-existing medical conditions, in conjunction with an enforceable mandate for individual coverage. In the absence of such a mandate, insurers said, many people […]
