Much like the frog our water is boiling!
I am reminded of a fable about a frog and a boiling pot of water. I look around these days and can barely recognize the country we have become. According to our own President American exceptionalism is dead. We are inherently no better than the Greeks or the Iranians because after all everyone is special right? How did we get here? Some people will look | Read More »
Veterans Day and an Oath
Almost 14 years ago I took an oath, signed some papers to defend this country from tyranny and oppression. I took that oath knowing full well that it would affect my life in ways that I could not have imagined at the time. I realized the choice I made would cause me to move a few times, and the addition of a wife and kids | Read More »
Shocking Obamacare increases higher in red states.
Stop me if you have heard this one before. The President is determined to punish those that go against him or slight him in any fashion, real or perceived. For him though, the ultimate slight is having the gall to not vote for him. I mean can you imagine the nuts on those people to disrespect the chose one by voting against him? Well he | Read More »
Principles and spines. Why the GOP establishment doesn’t understand.
Word came out today that McConnell and the GOP establishment are hell bent on destroying a private Republican consulting firm because they had the audacity to work with the Senate Conservatives Fund. This really comes as no surprise. After all the SCF is determined to remove McConnell and his squishy friends from office. This leads us to the problem that the establishment doesn’t understand. They | Read More »
Why Ted Cruz and Mike Lee are responsible for Obamacare roll out failure.
Follow me on this one. Yes, I fully supported them in their bid to defund or delay Obamacare. I truly believe that it is the most destructive force to ever be unleashed upon the American workforce and the economy as a whole. But look at it this way. Contrary to what Obama and HHS want to admit, they knew that the webpage was going to | Read More »
Just think soon they will be in charge of your healthcare.
With the passage of Obamacare and the twisted pretzel shape that John Roberts had to get into to shove his head that far up his ass to rule it constitutional comes a glimmer of hope. Wait, no. That’s not the right word. What I meant was another reason to fear for your personal freedom and wealth. Imagine this you immigrate, legally I might add, from | Read More »
Charles Boustany – Flag Waiver
I write this as being from LA originally I try to keep up with the goings on there. When one thinks about the type of Republican that should be coming from the State of Louisiana one thinks of the type of Senator that Ted Cruz is, or the type of Congressman Trey Gowdy is. Meaning they obviously have no interest in being someone’s friend or | Read More »
Backroom deals and lack of a spine.
It was announced today that the complete surrender of the GOP is in the works. McConnell got with Reid and gave away the farm, while Boehner is making sure that the House passes the bill with Dem votes first to prevent a filibuster from Ted Cruz and Mike Lee. If you think this wasn’t always the plan you’ve lost your mind. For those of you | Read More »
GOP stabbs you in the back again
According to the Hill the Senate Republicans want to offer a plan that would raise the debt limit, and fold completely by funding the Government for a year at Sequestration levels. Notice it says nothing about defunding Obamacare, only removing the medical device tax. Could that long with the poll numbers that make it look like the GOP is losing be the reason that the | Read More »
Thanks for nothing Paul Ryan
In negotiations there is a saying “shoot for the stars and you might get the moon.” Basically ask for everything you could dream about and you might be able to end up with close to what you really wanted. Republicans in Congress have never learned this lesson. They shoot for their nuts and typically end up shooting their own feet. Meaning they start out asking | Read More »
