From The Duh! Files: America Not Happy With DC’s Failures

Let’s see, we had a housing market collapse because of risky liberal schemes that lent money to people who had no business taking on such loans but did line the pockets of a lot of DC insiders. The market collapse caused every home owner in America to lose massive amounts of equity (read – savings), […]

From The Duh! Files: Government Takeover Of Healthcare Will Be Expensive

Published by under Obamacare,The Duh! Files

Well, it has been a while since I dusted off The Duh! Files, but here is one for the record: The health care overhauls released to date would increase, not reduce, the burgeoning long-term health costs facing the government, Congressional Budget Office Director Douglas Elmendorf said Thursday. … The chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, […]

From The Duh! Files – Holder On GITMO

  It’s been a while since I dusted off the Duh! Files category, but this news article cries out for the label: Holder: Closing Gitmo won’t be easy … Closing Guantanamo, he said, “will not be an easy process.” … “It’s going to take us a good portion of that time to look at all […]

Ron Paul won’t win the GOP nomination! Friday night, Representative Ron Paul, a long-shot G.O.P. candidate from Texas, basically conceded that he’s not going to win the party’s nomination.

It has been a LONG time since I have dusted off the “Duh! Files” to blog on the blatantly obvious. But I couldn’t pass this up. The Democrat House Whip notes that success in Iraq would split the Dems and make a surrender/withdrawal impossible: House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-S.C.) said Monday that a strongly […]

From The Duh! Files

It seems everything coming out of DC is pretty inane and idiotic, so I have not had to use the Duh! Files tag for sometime. But occassionally something bubbles out of DC so ridiculous it is hard to believe anyone ever debated the idea for even a split second – let alone two years. Here […]

Coulter does it again…

Lay off the merger!!!

This is a bit off the beaten path, but it is frustrating to see the federal government giving indications that it is going to fight the merger of XM and Sirius. Unless they have proof of nefarious intent, then they need to lay off. The biggest reason I have NOT purchased satellite radio is the […]

Captain’s Quarters on civility…

Over at Captain’s Quarters, there is a discussion of civility. On the previous thread is what appears to be his response to Ann Coulter’s comments. It’s a good post, but the comments at the second link are instructive as well. They are part of the reason that Republicans got spanked in the 2006 mid-terms. Conservatives […]

What happens when you disarm law abiding citizens so that only criminals have weapons? Simple: More criminals feel comfortable commiting crimes with guns (allows them to control the situation). Ask Washington DC, which has one of the nation’s bans on personal firearms. And then come across the River to VA where we have conceal and […]
