(UPDATE) Glenn Beck’s Reckless Race Card Comment May Re-Elect Obama
Update: This post is not about Newt Gingrich. This post is about Glenn Beck calling Tea Party supporters of Newt Gingrich, racists, because there is no difference between Obama and Gingrich. While there can be an honest debate if Gingrich is a progressive Republican, there is a clear choice between Obama and Gingrich. Calling those Tea Party people racists who believe that Gingrich is the | Read More »
Move Over Keynesian Economics, Cainsian Economics For The Win!

Who’s Absorbing Who?
I would like to take this time to blast Brendan Steinhauser of Freedomworks for his comments resently: “I would just say that we are busy taking over the GOP,” said Brendan Steinhauser, director of federal and state campaigns for the national tea party network Freedomworks.
#OccupyWallStreet: Where I Regret I Can Not Afford A Gun
Ever since I turned 18, I have always thought to myself that the one thing I would do is to own a gun and, of course, get a carry/conceal permit. However either money or time has been an issue. I always thought there was plenty of time. However after seeing the raise of the Occupy Wall Street movement all over the place, I am now | Read More »
Who Here Regrets Endorsing Rick Scott?
NOT ME, I DIDN’T SUPPORT HIM!!! [N]o one has yet been able to answer WHY we should choose Rick Scott over Bill McCollum. Just because Rick Scott has never been in elected office, does not make him more of a good guy over McCollum. I mean, just look at Jesse Ventura’s tenure as Governor of Minnesota. The people hated him when he left office and | Read More »
A Progressive’s Austerity Plan: More Spending And Taxes!!!!
Austerity is a government policy of deficit-cutting; lower spending and a reduction in the amount of benefits and/or public services provided, while sometimes coupled with increases in taxes (but not necessary). Can we all agree on this definition? If so, let’s look at progressive Richard Eskow’s counter “austerity” plan: Say what you will about Rep. Ryan’s budget proposal, it’s a vision. (…) It may not | Read More »
Obama: Yeah, Tea Party Is A Racist Movement
(Via The Daily Caller) So much for the post-racial president: [H]e told guests at a private White House dinner that race was probably a key component in the rising opposition to his presidency from conservatives, especially right-wing activists in the anti-incumbent “Tea Party” movement that was then surging across the country.

And BigGator5′s Presidential Pick For 2012 Is…
I bet you have already seen the keywords below and know who I am backing 100%. However before I go into my pick, I first want to say that I was excited about a Mike Pence run. But he of course has choosen to run for Governor of Indiana. Milke Pence is a class act and he will be missed in the up-coming debate. Our | Read More »
Governor Rick Scott’s Job Budget
This will be a YouTube heavy post, as this was meant for those of you who couldn’t make it. Yesterday, Florida Governor Rick Scott choose to unroll his budget in my backyard. It took place during a Tea Party* rally in Eustis, where Rick Scott got a warm welcome (as you will see). I had to go to another meeting about the local school board | Read More »
Earmark Veto Vow? What Earmark Veto Vow?
(Via Ace Of Spades) Purple Avenger notes that the earmark veto was “kidnapped, murdered, and chucked into some Washington D.C. version of a shallow grave where anything showing a whiff of spine or honesty is summarily dumped.” It reminds me of a political cartoon that has a human spine in a corner of a room. A bunch of donkeys are look at it and are | Read More »

Logic Favors Jason Sager (CAN-R-FL-05)
Clearly, but first let’s look at the very liberal writer of the St. Pete Times, Dan DeWitt, rips Richard Dick* Nugent a new one: Not the old Nugent, at least that’s not what his record suggests. Because as my dad might have said, if this guy’s a fiscal conservative, I’m a diamond cutter. Since Nugent was elected in 2000, the Sheriff’s Office has raised deputies’ | Read More »
Jason Sager (CAN-R-FL-05): Protest Warrior
Man, you just can’t help but love Jason Sager (CAN-R-FL-05). I mean, this guy is the original Tea Party/912er. That is no boast, it is a fact: That was Sager’s “Patrick Henry moment” and he knew he had to get involved.
Latinos And Americans United
Last night, I was lucky to meet Dr. Juan Torres at my local Tea Party meeting. He was the featured guest speaker. The reason he was the guest speaker, because he is the founder of the Latino Tea Party resource website: Latinos And Americans United.org

I know I talk a lot about Jason Sager (CAN-R-FL-05), and that’s because he’s an awesome guy. How awesome? Awesome enough to get on Glenn Beck:
What The “TEA Party” Means To Me
What does the TEA Party means for me? I will admit that I haven’t been active in the TEA Party movement all that much. I do have my “Don’t Tread On Me” Flag and support the grassroots movement from the very beginning. However when it comes to actual participation, I have been lacking. This will change come the 12th of this month when I head | Read More »

Or with a bullet in the head: WTF?? If the Progressive Movement hasn’t yet died of shame, someone should put a bullet in its head.
