- Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan has recused herself from the case involving Arizona’s immigration law. Is this an example of proper judicial ethics or a carefully thought out head fake? The cynic in me says that this is an attempt to create an appearance of ethical bona fides. When she does not recuse herself from the Obamacare litigation she will appear to have a history of “ethical” conduct to fall back on. The legacy media will lap it up. Cynical, yes. But sometimes the cynic is me is correct. Time will tell.
- Over the weekend someone on Wall Street must have read the latest plan for the European Central Bank to solve the euro debt crisis, realized that this was not a solution, and the stock market got slammed today. I may have to rethink my opinion of British Prime Minister David Cameron who would not go along with the latest scam. Buddy can you spare a euro?
- When MItt Romney offered a $10,000 wager to Rick Perry, Romney forgot to mention he was wagering with other people’s money. They don’t call it Taxachusetts for nothing.
- President Obama already celebrated Hanukkah, several weeks early. I wonder if Al Jazeera will televise the video? All in the name of peaceful religious coexistence, of course. Are the mullahs celebrating Christmas in Tehran yet?
- Don’t worry about whether or not Congress extends the 2% payroll tax cut. It doesn’t really matter. Social Security will go break sooner or later either way.
- Is the Keystone XL pipeline a shovel ready project or is that a rhetorical question?
There is hope for change. Keep hope alive!
