Does ObamaCare Joker Sign “Go Too Far?” I Hope So!

Dear C.,   You asked me the other day, regarding the Joker poster, if we can ever go too far in attempting to provoke outrage and as I am sure you agree, the answer is “yes.”  If we do go too far, we will lose credibility. If we lose it with the public I would argue that it is no big deal because we don’t have much with them and exposing truth is more important than building credibility with that crowd anyway.  If we lose it with our donors, however, the results could be more dire.  But our donors have shown themselves to be

Rachel Maddow’s Boringly Predictable Double Standards

Dear Ms. Maddow,   You recently remarked on Meet The Press that you don’t think Mr. Obama has done anything which fairly invites a comparison between his administration and National Socialism. I suppose if you reject the proposition that abortion is genocide, you have a point. But many millions of Americans accept that notion and they have every right to express that point of view, even if they do it rudely. Is our discourse becoming coarsened? Sure. But torturing babies to death is also pretty coarse.   Anyone who walks a video camera around a Netroots convention can film the occasional nut-job advocating war crimes

OBAMA, TAX REVOLTS & THE ANTI-CHRIST

Here is an email message I just sent in answer to a friend’s question about whether pro-life Christians should lead a tax revolt against the excesses of the Obama Administration:   Dear Eric,   By my lights, this question of whether pro-life Christians have an obligation to lead a tax revolt against the horrifying corruption of the Obama Administration is easily answered:  You are asking, in good faith, the question the chief priests and scribes asked Jesus, in bad faith, in Luke 20:22:  “Is it lawful for us to give tribute [pay taxes] unto Caesar?”  Christ, of course, held up
