The ______ Blog Posts of 2010

December 31, 2010

As has been the case for the last few years, I am publishing a list of what I considered to have been some of the “______ blog” posts from 2010.  NONE were written by me, but all were impactful enough at the time I originally read them that I took the time to add to this list that has been in development since January of THIS year (2010).  The original authors may disagree with the quality of these, but I stand behind each one in terms of their being well worth the read.  If you disagree, I will cheerfully refund your money, less shipping and handling.

I think that “potty humor” must be among the universal human languages.  Not sure whether that’s good or bad, but it seems to be true nonetheless.

We can only hope the Repulicans in the “new” congress are smarter than the ones in this one.

Once again Charles Krauthammer’s assessment of this week’s announcement of an as yet unapproved plan to extend the current tax rates is right on.  He outlines the political calculus of the President as he CONTINUES to advance his hard-left agenda, all under the approving watch of the current mess of Republicans who make up the current Congress.  To Obama’s credit, he really is masterfully playing these guys,….or he is just incredibly lucky that he has such a stupid opponent.  Some will still be around next year.  We can only hope that many of the ones elected a month ago are brighter, strategically, than the crowd representing us now.

Read the article HERE and see if you are STILL excited about what was agreed to earlier this week.

What a weiner!

Folks, this guy is a poster child for what you get when you elect democrats.  He is snarky, impertinent, spiteful, and untruthful.  Anthony Weiner’s view of the government’s entitlement to a significant portion of a person’s estate, the corpus of which has at some point been taxed as it was originally earned by the deceased, is laughable, if it were not the current law of the land, and an essential element of democrat tax policy.

He’s got this one right again.

If you are not in the habit of reading Charles Krauthammer, you really should treat yourself to some of his writings, periodically.  In fact, right now would be a good time, as I have a really good article for you published by Dr. Krauthammer regarding wikiLeaks and its founder Julian Assange, about whom I will decline comment, out of consideration of the possible tender eyes that might read this.

In any event, feast on THIS from the good Doctor.  He’s got this one right.
