USA Today – Obama: I wasn’t born with ‘silver spoon’
Spare me. You were largely raised by your grandparents, one of whom was a bank executive. You went to one of the most exclusive schools in Hawaii. So your polygamist dad abandoned you. You were still brought up rather more well-off than most of us.

Do you travel without a gun? You shouldn’t!

CBS – Milledgeville Police Handcuff 6-Year-Old Girl for Misbehaving at School
It’s only a shame this doesn’t happen more often. “Misbehaving at School”? Try uncontrollable destruction of property and refusal to exert self-control. Sorry, but the child had to be restrained and school officials have been cowed out of the job by lawsuits.
Detroit News – Seniors get the TSA runaround, lose $300
Time to disband the TSA. An outrage every day is becoming tiresome. This is not making us safer.

Boston Herald – Pols: Welfare abuse runs deep
This is exactly why we need to return to calling the program “Food Stamps” and making them physical stamps that can only be exchanged for basic food items.
CBS (Tampa Bay) – New Black Panther Party chief of staff Michelle Williams apologizes after George Zimmerman radio outburst
If any officeholder of a white or conservative group had said anything remotely similar, he’d have been mercilessly hounded out of office by the Leftmedia from coast to coast, apology or no. Where’s the outrage? The calls for dismissal? [Crickets…]
Telegraph – Strong men more likely to vote Conservative
So wusses are more likely to be liberal and studs conservative. Who knew?
Thomas Sowell on the economy:
Have you noticed that what modest economic improvements we have seen occurred during the much-lamented “gridlock” in Washington? Nor is this unusual. If you check back through history, doing nothing has a far better track record than that of politicians intervening in the economy.
With all the talk about people paying their “fair share” of income taxes, why do nearly half the people in this country pay no income taxes at all? Is that their “fair share”? Or is creating more recipients of government handouts, at no cost to themselves, simply a strategy to gain more votes?
People who believe in evolution in biology often believe in creationism in government. In other words, they believe that the universe and all the creatures in it could have evolved spontaneously, but that the economy is too complicated to operate without being directed by politicians.
The United States now has the dubious distinction of having the highest corporate tax rate in the world. And people wonder why American corporations are expanding overseas, providing jobs to foreigners. The left may get their jollies attacking “the rich,” but the real victims are other people, who want the jobs that are sent overseas to escape a hostile business climate at home.
In Baltimore a tourist was beaten, stripped, and robbed by a group of young thugs. Somehow this was not national news. Watch the video clip that isn’t shown by the local news and venture a guess as to why Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and the entire liberal media have uttered nary a peep about this brutality. [Hint: black-on-white crime doesn’t fit the Left’s agenda. The victim certainly didn’t look like he could have been Obama’s son…though the perps did.]
Michelle Malkin – Marion Barry and the Left’s hatred of Asian entrepreneurs
Yes, racism is alive and well in America…it’s just not coming from conservative whites despite what the Left would have you believe. A white man who said anything remotely similar would have been page one news and lead every nightly newscast.
The Blaze – Rev. Wright Unleashed
This is rather typical of the pastor whose church Obama called home for 20 years, and who Obama once called an important and close advisor and mentor. Can you even imagine the outcry had that been a white pastor? Or specifically the pastor of a GOP President or candidate?
Now look back at the ugly, blatant hate and racism in the three items above. I would love to hear a liberal justify even one of them or simply to demonstrate how they are not representative of the overwhelming liberal bias of mainstream media.
Given that incredible bias it’s amazing that conservatives are ever elected–even when polling repeatedly shows voters holding Right or center-Right views.
Jonah Goldberg, National Review – Very Few of the Above: Obama’s energy policy is rather picky.
Charles Krauthammer, National Post – Obamacare is losing to logic
Nashville Business Journal – Savings come slowly for hybrid, electric car owners
Not bad! That Chevy Volt will pay for the price premium in just 27 years! What a bargain.
Breitbart – Holder’s DOJ: Evidence of Voter Fraud ‘Manufactured’
What a tool Holder is. We can’t afford four more years of him, either.
