Conservative Comedy – Income Tax Day Edition

Welcome to the Income Tax Day edition of Conservative Comedy at the Strident Conservative. As I do every Friday, I bring you some of the best Conservative political satire on the internet, sure to provide a good laugh to begin your weekend. April 15th wasn’t only Tax Day, it was also the deadline (sort of) for enrolling in Obamacare. As the Conservative Comic at Hope n’ Change reflected on this, he came to the conclusion that it was a genuine “two-fer” as far as the government is concerned. As the old saying goes, the two things in life that are certain are death and taxes; thanks to Obamacare, Barry is in control of them both. Jodi Miller at Newsbusted has plenty to report on about Christmas Day for the Democrats (i.e. April 15th). It’s not all bad news though. For instance, now that Tax Day is past, the I.R.S. can stop targeting T.E.A. Party 501C (3) applications; instead, they can redirect those resources to auditing their tax returns—along with the returns of anyone who donated to them. Also covered this week: Obamacare and Mickey Rooney, a recent development that could cost Kevin Spacey any future Oscars, and the Obama response […]

The dark side of “free” electricity from the sun

It is amazing that something that seems as up-beat as “free” electricity from the sun can have such a dark side. I started covering some of the shenanigans from the solar industry last summer when I wrote about the “Green Tea Party” in Georgia. I had no idea what a can of worms I’d opened. In September, I wrote about the net-metering battle taking place in Arizona—and pointed out the national implications of what was playing out there. The following month, I addressed, what I believe, is an organized effort by the industry, to co-opt the language of the free-market/conservative/limited-government thinking population in an effort to convenience them that government-mandated and -subsidized solar energy was a good thing. Last month I warned consumers of solar scams in a column I wrote titled “Clouds on the solar horizon.” Along with researcher Christine Lakatos, I have spent months on an investigation into the cronyism, abuse, mismanagement, and violations involved in Abengoa Solar, the Spanish company that received $2.8 billion in taxpayer funding—most of it through the 2009 Stimulus Bill. My exposé was published earlier this week in the Daily Caller. Within the past few weeks, I’ve been getting harassing phone calls from a solar […]

Cooked Books and Corrupt Government

And so, as I imagine most of you know, the administration has decided to cook the census books to get ‘better’ numbers for Obamacare. I wasn’t particularly surprised, they’ve cooked all the other books, why not these? Apparently, Megan McCardle was surprised. She had this to say: I’m speechless. Shocked. Stunned. Horrified. Befuddled. Aghast, appalled, […]

“Electile Dysfunction” in Ohio’s 8th Congressional District

Electile Dysfunction (ED) or political impotence is characterized by a politician’s inability or unwillingness to do the job he was elected to do, and is usually the result of being in Washington D.C. far too long. While this condition is reaching epidemic proportions in both political parties, there are certain congressional districts who need who need the cure that can only come from electing Constitution-loving Conservatives. In Ohio’s 8th Congressional District—currently “represented” by the inaugural member of the G.O.P. Hall of Shame, John Boehner —the cure for ED might just be found in the person of J. D. Winteregg, as this entertaining video shows:   If you or someone you love lives in Ohio’s 8th district and suffers from Electile Dysfunction, make sure to order the cure on May 6th. After all, you’ve been suffering with a Boehner for the past 23 years; you don’t have a moment to lose. When the moment is right (May 6) Vote for J. D. Winteregg
