Oh boy, here we go.

Democratic Senator Chuck Schumer compares the “Fairness Doctrine”- a thinly veiled attempt to squash conservative talk radio- to pornography.

And let’s not forget about this interview:

The other point of view?  CONTROL CONTROL CONTROL:

Malkin has more, naturally.


This in from WSB in Atlanta:

Some Georgians Suspected Of Voting Twice

“This is extraordinarily disturbing,” said Secretary of State Karen Handel.

A team of investigative journalists from WSB-TV in Atlanta, WFTV in Orlando and WFTS in Tampa and WCPO in Cincinnati compared Georgia’s voter rolls with those in Florida and Ohio and found more than 100,000 people who appear to be registered to vote in more than one state, with no government oversight to catch it.

This Sums It Up

Spreading the Poverty

Thomas Sowell has yet another great article today at Townhall.com:

The idea of redistributing wealth has turned into the reality of redistributing poverty, in countries where wealth has fled and the production of new wealth has been stifled by a lack of incentives.

He continues:

Politicians telling businesses how to operate? That’s been tried in countries around the world, especially during the second half of the 20th century. It has failed so often and so badly that even socialist and communist governments were freeing up their markets by the end of the century.

The economies of China and India began their take-off into high rates of growth when they got rid of precisely the kinds of policies that Obama is advocating for the United States under the magic mantra of “change.”

More on the fruits of socialism here and here.

I’ll spare you the policy wonk fun from Heritage, but check out this quote from some post-baseball season “light reading” (fully story here):

The country’s current left-wing government, led first by Peronist Party leader Néstor Kirchner (presi­dent from 2003 to 2007) and now by his wife, Presi­dent Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, has used revenues from commodities exports to finance the same sort of populist policies that have kept General Juan Peron and his political progeny in power in Argentina more or less continuously since the 1940s with a simple but economically destructive formula: wasteful welfare state handouts, a swollen bureau­cracy to redistribute wealth, and powerful closed-shop trade unions protected from foreign competi­tion; all generously lubricated with corruption.

See any parallels to today’s political discussion in the United States?

Obama World Series Pregame

Michelle Malkin has the play-by-play here.

Since we cannot watch the pregame, here is the Obama lineup:

CF – Poor Union Worker

2B – People with no Food in Their Refrigerator

LF – 64 Prescription Drugs a day Wal-Mart Worker

1B – Swing State Governors

3B – Tax Cuts for $250,000… oops, I mean $200,000 and under

SS – Joltin’ Joe Biden

C – Los Angels Times

RF – Kansas Values (obtained growing up in Indonesia and Hawaii)

DH/ P – Karl Marx

Off the bench (literally) – Ohio ACORN voters

In the bullpen warming up: Barney Frank, Nancy Pelosi, and Harry Reid.

And this nice article which is a wet blanket on Obama’s theater:

The US press has repeatedly rehearsed Mr Obama’s extraordinary odyssey, but the other side of the family’s American experience has only been revealed in parts. Just across town from where Mr Obama made history as the first black president of the Harvard Law Review, some of his closest blood relatives have confronted the harshness of immigrant life in America.

Thanks Sweetness and Light.

And Gateway Pundit has a post about how Cubans smell the socialism.

They would know, right?!
