2nd Amendment and who wants to throw it away.
A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state; and the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed. (2nd Amendment) When those words were attached to the Bill of Rights the Founders had a very specific purpose in mind. It is not a coincidence that it was added second only to the freedom of speech, | Read More »
Is Obama squirming over sequestration?
On Jan 1st Congress and Obama made a deal that push sequestration back to March 1st. In that Obama was able to get his tax increases that he wanted on the “wealthiest Americans”, and apparently the GOP managed to screw up and paint him into a corner. That is the only thing that can explain why Obama is all of a sudden willing to do | Read More »
Jindal still has some fixin to do in LA
Every Tuesday at Fresh Market stores in LA, you are able to buy a gallon of milk for 2.99, this was a promotion that the store had been running for some time. Now, thanks to some unidentified complaint, the State Agriculture and Forestry Commissioner Mike Strain says that this is illegal and has to stop. No seriously a State Commissioner told a store that it | Read More »
Does the No budget No pay bill really make a difference?
I ask this in all seriousness. The House passing the bill is a good step I think, but where does it really get us? It allows Obama to continue his reckless spending until April at the earliest and only means that the Senate has to do the job that the Constitution requires them to do already. So again I ask does this really make a | Read More »

The Debt Limit is the right fight.
I have been reading a lot of things today about how people out there are thinking that we should not have the fight on the debt limit because it is as they say “the wrong fight”. People like Newt Gingrich think that we should wait and fight in March at the end of the CR and allow the debt limit to raise now and make | Read More »
Did Treasury purposely force us to hit the debt limit during fiscal cliff debate?
Earlier I spoke about how it seemed kind of odd that throughout the year the Treasury kept telling us that we would make it until Feb before the debt limit was reached. Then magically on Dec 31 we hit the debt ceiling. Turns out we hit it on that date because Timothy Geithner forced us to hit it on that date. According to CNSNews it | Read More »
Why Obama won re-election
We have come a long way throughout the relatively short history of our country. We went from ruled colonies to one of the most powerful to the most powerful nation in under 200 years. That ladies and gentlemen is amazing. But slowly along the way things started to happen. We started to relax our morals, we started to lose that self determination that allowed us | Read More »
Can Conservatives win the coming debt limit and sequester fight?
I ask this in all seriousness. I know that if we had a “leadership” that was more concerned with reigning in spending and reducing the debt we could win. The problem is we don’t have that kind of leadership. True, we do have some in Congress that feel this way and have the spine to make it work, but those unfortunately do not amount to | Read More »
Blame the media for the current gun control fight.
With the gun grabbing left in full swing, and even beginning to attract some of those that at one point or another we endorsed by the NRA, I believe that it is time to start talking about what gun control laws would actually prevent. And for the record no I DO NOT mean mass shootings. However it could lead to more of them. Think about | Read More »
Great News: 16.4 Trillion debt ceiling to be hit Dec 31
According to the math whiz that runs the Treasury Department, we will hit the debt ceiling sooner than we expected. Don’t worry though through some accounting gimmicks he can make us reach Feb. Maybe. Some how the guy who couldn’t figure out turbo tax can figure out to the day we will run out of money. Something smells fishy here. So at the same time | Read More »
