Welcome to the March 17, 2011 edition of the Anything Goes Carnival of Politics.


e.m. cadwaladr presents Casualties posted at e.m. cadwaladr, saying, “An article about the consequences of US attitudes toward war. No graphic imagery. Suitable for children if they have very large minds, and for adults that don’t need comforting.”

David Trevino presents Babes of the Ku Klux Klan posted at The Arrow and the Rose, saying, “This piece discusses encounters with the Ku Klux Klan from the mid-Sixties to today.”

K.D. Koratsky presents Federal Unionization: A Deadly Societal Cocktail posted at Neo-Darwinian Enlightenment Blog and Forum, saying, “Private-sector labor unions have a long and esteemed history of providing a counterbalance to
powerful corporate interests. Yet while the organization of labor clearly served a purpose with the rise of the Industrial Age when relatively few individuals controlled the means of large-scale production — a situation that allowed all manner of worker abuse to take place…”

Adrian Prugar presents Ways Obama Can Help Our Economy posted at Blogaronio’s, saying, “We need to get our country on track and apply fixes where they are needed most. With a common sense approach and radical reform we can get the U.S. back on top!”


Ian presents Why Sarah Palin Will Never be President posted at personalwebreviews, saying, “Ms. Palin will not sit down and shut up, nor will she ever be President of the United States.”

Ian presents International Terrorist Julian Assange One Step Closer to American Justice posted at personalwebreviews, saying, “Using whatever methods necessary U.S. officials will undoubtedly get their hands on Julian Assange.”


smrtas1 presents The Federal Government Excels At Wealth Redistribution posted at Conservative Patriot HQ, saying, “The founders of our country set up the Federal Government and listed the 20 specific powers the Federal Government. But what one thing does the government do the most? Provide and maintain a Navy? Establish post offices and post roads? To establish a uniform Rule of Naturalization, and uniform Laws on the subject of Bankruptcies throughout the United States? No, the Federal Government excels at one thing, printing checks and wealth redistribution.”

Scott Spiegel presents DOMA Is Not Roe v. Wade posted at Scott Spiegel, saying, “Deciding not to defend an argument behind one section of a law, when two of the highest courts in the land have deemed the law unconstitutional in three cases, is not unconstitutional.”

JT McGee presents US 1 Dollar Coins: My Evaluation of the GAO’s Proposal posted at MoneyMamba, saying, “There are better ways to save money than the GAO’s proposed $1 coins. Besides, given the sheer number of special interests involved in the making of the greenback, it appears there’s easier money to be saved elsewhere…the nickel!”


Madeleine Begun Kane presents Run, Newt, Run! posted at Mad Kane’s Political Madness, saying, “Oh goody — Newt Gingrich is exploring the possibility of maybe, conceivably running for president. Either that, or it’s yet another of his book publicity stunts.”

Madeleine Begun Kane presents Weirdness From George Will posted at Mad Kane’s Political Madness, saying, “I almost always disagree with George Will. So it pains me to say this, but George Will is right.”

Madeleine Begun Kane presents Broken Priorities (Limerick) posted at Mad Kane’s Political Madness, saying, “In December, when Republicans wanted an $858 billion tax-cut package, we weren’t broke. How much of that package did the GOP suggest we pay for? None of it. Not one penny. The costs were simply added to the deficit, and are the driving force behind the rising deficit estimates for this year, which have sent the right into such hysteria.”

From the Right presents All Things Ill-Considered: Anti-Intellectualism and Reality’s Jealous Embrace posted at Conservative Refocus, saying, “The ongoing disaster in Japan has made our hearts heavy in seeing difficulty after difficulty essentially piling up on the Japanese people. Our prayers go out to the Japanese, as well as our concern for a long-time ally. But the Mideast, meanwhile, has continued in its upheaval, as well, albeit, with far less attention as the world’s riveted gaze has been temporarily torn away. Back in America, the budget-weary politicos continue their bet-hedging, even while the Politico in Chief, the President, seemingly starved for attention, let loose a series of whine-tasting events for the American people.”

Scott Spiegel presents Wisconsin’s Government Cheese Revolution posted at Scott Spiegel, saying, “Obama’s support for the Wisconsin protestors may make this the first revolution in history in which a nation’s Commander-in-Chief has provided material reinforcements to the demonstrators to help quash the opposition party.”

Gary Voysey presents 5 things the Government DOES NOT want you to know! posted at Ramblings and other savageries, saying, “Since Roswell, the government (US) has been keeping little secrets here and there over the years. Area 51, The truth of the Bermuda Triangle, Ark of the Covenant etc. Since Project Blue book closed down, we haven’t heard of any juicy secrets that the government doesn’t want us to know. Until now.”

Scott Spiegel presents Liberals’ Game of Cat-and-Muslim posted at Scott Spiegel, saying, “Obama has offered a creative, efficient method for prosecuting terrorists affiliated with 9/11 or the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq: military tribunals in a secure island compound called “Guantanamo Bay.””

From the Left

vjack presents Republicans Using Economic Mess They Created to Attack Vital Domestic Programs posted at Red State Progressive, saying, “Far too few in the mainstream media are calling attention to this important issue facing our nation, so it once again seems to fall on bloggers and what little independent media remains.”

Madeleine Begun Kane presents Newt’s Fishy Excuses posted at Mad Kane’s Political Madness, saying, “Have you ever answered a ‘what’s your worst fault’ question from a prospective employer by mentioning a positive trait? Newt Gingrich is apparently familiar with that technique. What else can explain the excuses he gave for having been unfaithful to two sick wives?”

Madeleine Begun Kane presents Limerick Ode To Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker posted at Mad Kane’s Political Madness, saying, “I wrote this when the story of the Scott Walker / David Koch prank phone call first broke. But then I somehow forgot to post it. So a belated bravo to Ian Murphy of the Buffalo Beast for playing that entertaining and enlightening stunt on Scott ‘Union Buster’ Walker.”


Maggie Larche presents Public vs. Private Unions posted at Free Market Mommy, saying, “With the recent battles in Wisconsin to outlaw public collective bargaining, this post examines the difference between public and private unions.”

Mike Billy presents Is Piracy Theft? posted at Voluntary Thought, saying, “A libertarian look at whether or not piracy violates property rights and therefor constitutes as theft.”

Current Events

Vidal presents Fired for Facebook posted at Liberty’s Red Elephant, saying, “Souza’s case gave free speech a huge lift, but let’s look deeper into the ruling made by the NLRB”

John Purcell presents Is Europe Set To Become an Islamic State? posted at Fascinating Experiments, saying, “This is an article about Islamic expansion in Europe and what it means.”

Jennifer Miner presents Spring Break Mexico Travel Warning posted at The Vacation Gals – Family travel, girlfriend getaways, romantic getaways, destinations, things to do, travel tips, saying, “Every year recently, the US State Department issues travel warnings about Mexico just before spring break’s travel season. Mexico is a very large country and the tourist areas are safe, though; will spring break travel planners allow fear to dictate their vacations?”
