Sunday Evening Quick Hits: Are you a hipster?

I know I’m not a hipster.

theCL (not a hipster either) has an excellent tribute to Joseph Sobran (1946-2010). Very interesting reading.

A typical hipster?

Your Obama tax increases come January 1, 2011 to accompany your ObamaCare insurance premium increase.

Obama is still killing jobs with his off shore drilling ban:

Not once did a national reporter ask the president why he blocked permits to protect a fragile coastline. Not once did the president address why he needlessly delayed skimmers and clean-up efforts. To this day Obama has never addressed that scientists have found vast amounts of oil still floating beneath the water’s surface. The president has not addressed the inaction on his part that led to the crisis getting worse, or the BP “settlement” that may include taxpayer dollars.

But above all, the president is not being appropriately pressed to end his reckless and economy-crushing drilling moratorium. One Democratic Senator is not as accepting of the White House’s malfeasance. Senator Mary Landrieu (D-LA) has placed a hold on President Obama’s OMB nominee, Jack Lew, until the White House lifts the moratorium.

Obama’s Lament for a Taxpayer-Funded Tuscany Vacation with Sun & Pasta:

Obama’s strange, whiny lament this past week at a $30K-per-plate Dem fundraiser dinner about needing another vacation, one under the Tuscan sun and with plenty of pasta, has left much of the left side of the aisle uncharacteristically mute.

How does one defend Dear Leader’s self-absorbed, self-serving desire for another vacation so soon after returning from those he and the family spent at Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts, in Florida, and in Maine? During the biggest deficit and unemployment mess we’ve seen in more than 30 years, which he and the Democrats in Congress created… the worst economic recession this nation has seen in decades, with the poverty level jumping last month to a 15-year high… he’s off doing the “vay-cay” thing to excess.

Milbank on Beck: “The Tea Bagging of America.” Glenn Beck is not a hipster either.

I posted my “Getting to know Jocelyn Benson” blog post @ RightMichigan and a reader on that site posted a ton of additional information in the comments.

If you are reading my blog, you are more than likely not a hipster and will appreciate a vintage / custom 1970 TRIUMPH T-150 Trident Cafe Racer.
