My solution is simple. Keep Uncle Sam's big, ugly hands off our oil spill. As Reagan once said: "The nine most terrifying words in the English language are 'I'm from the government and I'm here to help'." Don't let them.

There will be no serious health care reform until the drug companies, the hospital corporations and the HMO industry are forced to pay their share of the bill.

Democrats Sell Out on Healthcare

Mike Papantonio

Drug companies showed a profit of 80 billion dollars last year while the health care industry collected 13 billion in profits. Life is good, and they are spreading all those billions around to the Democrats.

If you were a California teabagger dressed up like Paul Revere you probably would have felt ridiculous once you learned that 11 billion in revenues left the state to places like the Cayman Islands.

Ted Stevens never should have been prosecuted in 2008. Traditional media has done a pitiful job covering the many political prosecution stories that occurred during the Ashcroft/Gonzales years.

Birds, sea lions, and iguanas take from their surroundings only what they need to live. On the other hand, the more evolved human is locus-like in the way they interact with their community.

In Cramer We Trust?

Mike Papantonio | Posted 05.25.2011 | Media
Mike Papantonio

Most of the pundit misinformation occurred because investigative reporting in the news industry is dead. This new breed of financial TV pitchmen weren't paid to ask tough questions.

Rooting for Rush

Mike Papantonio | Posted 05.25.2011 | Media
Mike Papantonio

The analysis on Rush is easy. Historically, he has had zero impact on the outcome of elections. The truth is, Limbaugh's political influence is not vast at all.

Slapped by the Invisible Hand

Mike Papantonio

As Sullenberger continues to speak out, he should make it clear that all the pilots and crews who are still operating in the deregulated airline industry are truly heroes.

Senator-elect Al Franken hasn't spoken to the national media since November -- until now.

GOP Has Been Left Home Alone

Mike Papantonio

The lack of GOP leadership reminds me of the scene in Home Alone when Macaulay Culkin first realizes that he has been deserted. All the grown-ups have left the house.
