Good morning, readers. It’s 11:30am here in London and that massive, multi-union strike I told you about the other day is now underway. My family had planned to visit Westminster today, but it’s off the table now. I get enough of the Big Labor mob scene back in the States. No need to expose the […]
**Written by Doug Powers When Illinois Senator Dick Durbin looks at a crowd of Tea Partying American citizens, he sees extremists and a bunch of fringe wackos who don’t speak for America.

You know what I always say: It never ends. The Cartoon Jihad of the Religion of Perpetual Outrage never ends. Our latest conflagration has Egyptian (of course) sharia-enforcers (dubbed “conservatives” by BBC dhimmis) in a frenzy over a Coptic Christian businessman’s tweet of what they consider a lewd photo. The offending photo was…a joke image […]
**Written by Doug Powers On Monday we talked about the HHS plan to employ “mystery shoppers” to pose as patients looking for primary care doctors to help determine which doctors turn away patients with government health plans that pay lower reimbursement rates. Somehow this was supposed to help solve a doctor shortage, because in DC, […]
I’m in London on vacation with family, but will be filing my regular Wednesday and Friday columns and blogging when the sloooow Internet connections allow. There’s much tension here as three-quarters of a million public union workers prepare to strike on Thursday. Featured above is one of countless posters littering the streets — I snapped […]
**Written by Doug Powers A few days ago I wrote about Time magazine editor Richard Stengel’s cover piece entitled “One Document, Under Seige” in which Stengel seemed to reluctantly conclude that the Constitution does matter, just not as much as we think it does (though it always matters when Time needs to hide behind it). […]
**Written by Doug Powers So it’s settled: Quoting Elvis before your verdict is announced won’t ward off a conviction: CHICAGO (AP) — A jury convicted former Illinois Gov.

Sure, the dinner is a fundraiser, […]
“Yes, that’s my car outside with a Republican bumper sticker. Why do you ask?”
**Written by Doug Powers Here in Michigan it was one of the best evening’s of the year so far… about 70, clear and mild. Perfect conditions for an overnight thread as the fire dies down and the last of the smores is being consumed (suggestion: try a Reese’s peanut butter cup in place of the […]
**Written by Doug Powers When I heard Wallace ask Michele Bachmann if she’s a flake I cringed a little, and I’m not surprised Wallace ended up apologizing. (Update: Apology not accepted?) You know, when I think of political figures who have made questionable statements and embarrassing gaffes in the past few days, Michele Bachmann isn’t […]

Let the “is she or isn’t she” […]
Only patriotic spending binges can save us now!
**Written by Doug Powers Just last week, President Obama said that automation (ATMs, airport kiosks, etc) is killing jobs. (Pop a Dramamine because you’re about to take yet another abrupt 180° turn) This week a key ingredient in job creation is… automation: Need help defusing a bomb, mowing a lawn or scraping old paint? President […]
The DREAM Act mob is on the march again — and this time they have a prominent left-wing journalist leading the charge.

**Written by Doug Powers In the past several months, Time Magazine Editor Richard Stengel has answered and asked the same question, in that order.
