Morning in Someone Else’s America
Do we really need to go through the numbers again? Through the horror stories of medical treatment in other countries (and even other states) who’ve made the mistake of nationalizing healthcare? Through the examples of failed Government programs like the Post Office, Medicare and Social Security? Through the national debt? What our kids will be left with? The opportunities we squandered when we controlled the | Read More »
In response to “The Republican Pro-Life Plank”
I was originally simply going to write a response in the comments section of Vassar Bushmills blog titled “The Republican Pro-Life Plank, a Philosophical Stance or a Political Stance? Or Both?” but decided that it was a complex enough subject with enough people on both sides of the issue that it was more appropriate to simply spell out a counter argument in my own diary. | Read More »
You know Rubio and DeVore, now meet Mulvaney.
“In just a generation Washington has gone from ‘Ask not what your country can do for you….” to “We will guarantee your GM warranty.’” With national attention being placed on spending, healthcare “reform” and jobs, it’s easy to forget that, as Tip O’neill said, “All politics is local.” With this in mind, I reached out to the Republican candidate for the 5th Congressional District in | Read More »
“Come to Jesus” at CPAC 2010
It happened this weekend at CPAC. It was the first time I’d ever attended a conservative convention and all the way up to 6:00 pm on Saturday, I thought that I had figured out what this convention would mean to me and how it would affect my outlook on the 2010 elections, the Republican Party, Libertarians and so on. I could not have been more | Read More »
I want to be an activist. Do you?
It’s hard not to look around and feel a great sense of optimism as well as a great sense of dread. These conflicting feelings are born from the line we’ve reached where we can either regress into government control of our lives or progress into more freedom and prosperity. But those are the obvious reasons for the duality. There are other things that roll around | Read More »
A worthy petition
I’ve gotta say, trying to start a petition is like throwing a party. You hope for a good outcome but risk the humiliation of inviting everyone and no one attending. (My brother is the famous RedState contributor Caleb Howe if that will make me more popular!) Well, at the risk of sitting alone with a party hat on, here goes: Nothing used to anger me | Read More »
To: Mr. Joe Owens.
Here’s the email I sent after his latest “Did I do that..?” email to Erick. Mr. Owens, Yeah, I’m not buying your “how did that email get there?” baloney. It’s pretty clear you have a left wing agenda and from the looks of it you are an employee of that company ESIWorld. If you are we can always start calling your office to try and | Read More »
Why isn’t Ted Kennedy’s care being rationed?
I don’t mean to be rude to a dying man, and it’s not what I personally would recommend that ANYONE do. But, in the vein of “draft the Bush twins” during the height of the Iraq war, how hypocritical is it of Senator Kennedy to demand sacrifice of American’s that he himself will fight off with every medicine and treatment imaginable?
For this I will be branded a racist…
For many months now we have sat in disbelief as our president…our Dear Leader recently referred to in the media as God, has traveled the world apologizing on behalf of a people who for the most part, hadn’t thought they’d done anything wrong. We’ve watched as he groveled in the mid-east and Europe and has done his classic “other hand” equivalencies to paint a picture | Read More »
Ok, for those who aren’t paying attention, here’s a recap: Government funded abortions world wide Trillions of dollars in deficits Higher spending Higher taxes Single payer government run healthcare Vet benefits cut Acorn benefits raised Terrorists coddled Effective interrogators impugned Cigarette Taxes Tax Dodging cabinet That moron press secretary mandatory ”volunteer” work for kids Soft drink (fat) taxes Releasing of top secret documents to appease the | Read More »
My Conservative Pledge
http://www.myspace.com/presidentialpledge To the pledgers in this video: Where were you for the last eight years? Where were you when we were attacked on 9-11? Where were you when the world agreed that Saddam had WMD’s? Where were you when the media was lying about our President? Where were you when the Iraqi’s were suffering? Where was your compassion for them? Where was your desire to | Read More »
