A class-warfare, tax-the-rich budget

If you shake out the Obama budget in terms of bold headlines, it's really a class-warfare, tax-the-rich budget. Layer upon layer of tax hikes are piled on successful investors, small-business owners and corporations.

A look at Jerry Brown’s Plan B

California Gov. Jerry Brown likes to talk about "loyalty to California." For Brown, that means that public people should put aside their partisan interests to do what is best for the Golden State.

Will California GOP primary matter?

The fact that former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney can't seem to cinch this year's Republican presidential nomination despite his funding advantage and the splintering of his party's extreme right wing has a lot of California Republicans salivating over the prospect their June 5 primary might actually mean something.

Who’s really bashing women?

Our transparently feminist media are currently cranking their hyperbole machines in their War on Limbaugh. They are reporting - chortling, really - that Republicans have a huge problem with women voters. The Washington Post breathlessly reports that their poll found Democrats won by 25 points on "Cares more about issues that are especially important to women."

Bizarrely, Obama turns on truthtellers

Some say that Barack Obama never seems to go far enough with his policy proposals, settling instead for half-step reforms. On one important issue, however, the Obamacans have been going way too far.

San Francisco Sheriff pleads guilty

San Francisco Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi agreed to a plea bargain on a misdemeanor domestic violence charge and two related charges that began with a New Year's Day argument during which Mirkarimi allegedly bruised his wife's arm. The district attorney dropped the three original charges; Mirkarimi pleaded guilty to misdemeanor false imprisonment. His sentence includes three years' probation, one year of domestic violence classes, plus family counseling, community service and fines. I'd add another item; Mirkarimi should tell San Francisco voters what happened.

What about left-wing misogyny?

"A firestorm of outrage from women after a crude tirade from Rush Limbaugh," said NBC anchor Brian Williams. This was followed by a reporter who said: "In 2012, the personal is political. What began as a debate over religious freedom has devolved into what some call a 'war on women.'"

Santorum, the exorcist candidate

Rick Santorum has become the alternative to Mitt Romney because the former U.S. senator from Pennsylvania comes across as, to use his words, "the conviction conservative" in the GOP presidential primary. While Romney burned through millions in big-donor contributions, Santorum ran a bare-bones campaign. In December, The New York Times ran a graphic on the candidates' entourages. Team Romney traveled with a 30-seat plane, a campaign bus, security, advance staffers and an average of four other aides. Santorum's fleet and crew consisted of a Dodge Ram pickup and the occasional staffer.

California: Penalty without penalty

While running for governor of California in 2010, Jerry Brown admitted he would "rather have a society where we didn't have to use death as a punishment." But because the Legislature and California voters approved capital punishment, "we've got to make it work."

In memoriam: Andrew Breitbart

In the wake of conservative activist, author and publisher Andrew Breitbart's death, the news media reported on the sharp division of "opinion" reflected on Twitter and other social media outlets. Half and half. Half what you might expect when someone dies at 43 leaving a wife and four children under 13. The other half as nasty as Breitbart himself was when Ted Kennedy passed away.

GCB: Good Christians bashed

At the same time Washington was ablaze with outrage at the idea that Rush Limbaugh insulted a woman as a "slut," ABC premiered a new Sunday night show called "GCB" - shortened from "Good Christian Bitches." Limbaugh apologized. ABC displays no such contrition. They insulted only those Christians . In the midst of this trashy debut, ABC promoted a new sitcom coming in April titled "Don't Trust The B-- in Apartment 23."

Phony divide of fiscal & social issues

Contrary to politicians who want to call a truce about social issues, there is absolutely no way to separate social and fiscal issues; they are locked in a tight political embrace. Politicians who say we can ignore social issues or avoid talking about them, are really saying that they have no plan to cut federal spending and the growing national debt.

VA: Window into the future

The problem with the U.S. Veterans Affairs giving inferior and delayed care to veterans is a good window into the future of Obamacare. Both the VA and Obamacare suffer the endemic problems of a government-run single-payer system (aka socialism) - no choice of doctors or hospitals, no insurance companies, broken promises, lengthy waits and bureaucratic cover-ups.

Putting Main Street in driver’s seat

As we know, the barons of Wall Street haven't hesitated to raid our public treasury and haul off trillions of dollars worth of government bailouts and special tax breaks to subsidize their "free market" ventures.

ISLA VISTA MURDERS

Elliot Rodger's story is not one of an untreated, mentally ill, white mass-killer who illegally acquired fully automatic "assault weapons." This mixed white and Asian 22-year-old bought his firearms legally, did not use a long-arm or "high-capacity" weapon and had been in therapy since the age of 8. Half his murder victims were killed by knife. Several of the injured were run over by Rodger's car.

Blame socialism, not Shinseki

The VA problem is not Shinseki; it's socialism. The Veterans Affairs health care system is completely government run. It is a pure single-payer program. National Review Editor Rich Lowry calls it "an island of socialism in American health care." He is right. I've been arguing this all week.
