Psychoanalyzing the Left

Feb 3, 2013 12:55 PM PT

When I was younger I thought psychology (and the closely related field of social anthropology) were twaddle, hokum, balderdash and other words which sound funny.  And yet over the past few years I've become a fan of the fields.  In another couple of years I'll probably go back to "twaddle."

(Psychology explains this as the "End of History" illuson, the belief that our current evolution represents our full and ultimate configuration -- a delusion shared by people on a psychological level and politicians and (I use this term advisedly) Thinkers on the geopolitical one.)

Obama Wields Big Gun, Not Really

Feb 3, 2013 12:43 PM PT

In response to My First Gun Show: The Bitter Clinger Interview Edition :

Hard to believe that this is Jerome's very first gun show. But then again, he doesn't strike me as the 'rough and tough' side-arm-toting gun enthusiast that usually frequents these gun shows. Well the girl in the video is correct, this is all about fear. But gun manufacturers and dealers are loving the short-term sales bonanza they are experiencing due to the proposed gun control measures Obama and his peeps want to implement. Obama is bad for the overall economy, but at gunshows, the Skeet Shooter-in-Chief brings in the big bucks for gun dealers

Charlie Crist's Political Jock-Strapping

In response to President Obama throws a football!:

Ben's post reminds me of another one of Obama's pals, former Republican Governor Charlie Crist, who also liked to think that he was some kind of a jock. Many of you may remember the time I played football with Charlie during the 2010 Senatorial campaign. Charlie's pass to me was staged in hopes that he would be able to show voters that he and I were buddies, and that perhaps I was not as supportive of Rubio. They knew better.

Now We Know Why Obama's So Bullish on Birth Control

Feb 3, 2013 11:33 AM PT

This story didn't get a lot of play yesterday, but it can't be repeated enough. Job growth per month over the past four years averaged a whopping 25,000—100k shy of conservative estimates of how many jobs we need to create per month just to keep up with population growth.

And we can see Obama's logic clearly: can't keep up with population growth? Stunt population growth! Free NuvaRings for all!

President Obama throws a football!

Feb 3, 2013 10:14 AM PT

In his ongoing quest to convince the American people that he is a regular guy -- just like us! -- President Obama has now released a photo of himself getting ready to throw a football. The caption: "Game day."

Obama's Super Bowl enthusiasm comes days after he suggested that his fictional son (not Trayvon, the other one) would not play football. If Obama throws this football like he throws a baseball, this pass will travel approximately 3.7 yards. Talk about a lame duck.

Optimism

In response to Iowahawk:

"Red tape, long lines, inconvenient office hours, and other logistical hassles probably won’t stop tomorrow’s super-genius from launching the next great billion-dollar company. But it’s a large and needless deterrent to the formation of the humble workaday firms that for many people are a path to autonomy and prosperity."

Gabby Giffords, Physical Disability, Liberal Logic and Gun Ownership

Feb 3, 2013 8:13 AM PT

Why are second amendment supporters afraid to discuss Gabby Giffords when talking gun control? It is a tragedy what happened to Mrs. Giffords. As a result of being shot by a deranged Jared Lee Loughner she suffered a physical disability

Can someone who is physically disabled handle the weapon in a safe manner and especially when under a stress as in self defense?
