    “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” –  Matthew 11:28-30 Two Thousand years ago today, The Son was separated from | Read More »

    Debt Ceiling Strategy

    As sure as many of us would like to see the debt limit not increased, I believe this to be highly impractical, given the enormous size of the Federal Government. Obviously, the debt limit and the size of the Federal Government go hand-in-hand, but, by taking the approach of forcing the government to scramble to avoid a default, there will be many unintended consequences.

    Trig Troofer-friendly Daily Beast tries damage control.

    It’s actually very entertaining to watch The Daily Beast try to offer a ‘balanced’ look at the Trig Palin situation. The short version of said [situation], for those who missed it:  one of Wonkette’s more unhinged writers said a variety of disgusting things about Trig Palin; and in response, the Internet took Wonkette out into the alley and administered a curb-stomping made all the more | Read More »

    Yahoo! “Contributor” Phones It In

    I was approached by two members of the Effingham Tea Party Steering Committee today and they asked me if I had seen the article on Yahoo! about the Effingham Tea Party we held on April 15th.  I said no, and they said I really needed to check it out….so I did.  Talk about phoning it in! First, the “contributor” gets the name of our town | Read More »

    Obama and Gas Prices: Blowing Hot Air

         Here we go again.  As Americans grapple not only with the loss of jobs, those who do have jobs now find it more expensive to get to those jobs because of the price of gasoline.  Make no mistake: the bulk of our oil imports is refined into gasoline and diesel for transportation purposes.  And once again, the price of gasoline becomes a political football | Read More »

    Behind the Obama Labor Board’s Bashing of Boeing is a Case Full of Irony & Union Failure

    On Wednesday, when President Obama’s union-controlled National Labor Relations Board issued a complaint against the Boeing Company for making a sound business decision to “dual source” its 787 production, it was another blatant example of a government agency run amok.

    Rule One: Don’t Make Threats You are Not Willing to Carry Out

    This is the part where the U.S. debt crisis could, maybe, perhaps, possibly get real. If Congress refuses to raise the debt ceiling, so the tax-borrow-and-spend-some-more cycle in D.C. can not continue without change, then Congress and the White House would have to do something real about the debt ceiling. Without the crisis of not raising the debt limit, the U.S. will simply never change | Read More »

    The Obama Credibility Gap

    The Obama Credibility Gap By Scott Conklin April 22, 2011 At the end of the Reign of Bush came a man the youth of the US flocked to. He preached a message of Hope and Change, though to about half the nation he seemed a bit vague on what change he was hoping for. Though to a few voices in the wilderness it seemed obvious. | Read More »

    2012: Trumping Trump

    This is my first and last posting about Donald Trump. It will be short. It is important.     Donald Trump has none of the skills and experiences necessary to be president of the United States. He does understand bankruptcies (three times), use of low quality loans to finance risky real estate transactions, and use of bullying to appeal to the public’s baser instincts. He exceeds Barack Obama | Read More »
