Minnesota – A Microcosm of America
If you need any more proof that the American electorate needs a collective enema, you need only look at the insanity that is Minnesota politics. In what should be a solidly conservative State, Minnesota voters have an almost schizophrenic voting history. Minnesota was one of only 5 states to vote for Jimmy Carter in 1980, and the ONLY state that did NOT vote for Ronald | Read More »
Who Got Us Here?
Look at the state of the nation today. We have stratospheric debt. We have out of control spending. We have a Federal government that has gotten so huge and overbearing that the Feds now control what kind of toilet you are “allowed” to use in your bathroom (and what light bulbs you MUST use in every room). We have lost over 3 million private sector | Read More »
The Cult of Irresponsibility
The media driven hysteria over “unintended acceleration” is part of a larger issue: the relentless attempts by the American Left to find an excuse for just about every human act of negligence, recklessness, or downright stupidity. Even violent criminals are presented as “victims” who are only “products of an unjust society.” But in order to exonerate those who would normally (and rightly) be called idiots, | Read More »
Cars and Politics -Why Ford is Roaring Ahead
It is impossible to ignore the significance of the fact that the Ford Motor Company, the one major car company that said “No Thanks” to Obama’s bailout of the auto industry, is now #1 – surpassing both Chrysler and GM, who did accept a “deal with the devil” and are still under the thumb of the Washington bureaucrats. Then again, Ford’s success should come as | Read More »
Illegal Immigration – When Bias Trumps Truth
If you happened to catch CNN Tuesday night, you would have seen why your friends who watch only “old media” continue to be utterly clueless about the truth behind the illegal immigration problem. It was painfully obvious that the CNN anchors were all on the side of the illegals. The “reporting” consisted of little more than an endless parade of open-boarder activists (why do they all | Read More »
When Will Enough Be Enough?
A man who came to the aid of a woman being beaten on a St. Paul bus was himself savagely beaten and left unconscious: SAINT PAUL, Minn. – A man trying to help a girl from getting assaulted and beaten at a St. Paul bus stop spoke out about the night of the attack. Eric Skripka, 33, was battered and bruised but he says he | Read More »
Democrats Discover Economics…NOT!
The most frustrating thing about talking to a liberal is their apparent inability to grasp even the most basic elements of economics. Take taxes. No matter how many times cutting tax rates stimulates economic activity, both here and in the rest of the developed world, and no matter how many times it results in INCREASED revenues to government coffers, Democrats persist in talking about “paying” | Read More »
Democrats Play the Class Envy Card…Again.
It has become a predictable election year ploy – Democrats trotting out their usual litany of bogus issues and emotion-laden personal attacks on conservatives. And especially this year, after they have created staggering deficits, debt, and unemployment, Democrats have little left other than to instigate racial discord and class envy. From falsely accusing the Tea Party movement of racism (while ignoring the genuine racism of | Read More »
Time for a “well regulated militia” in Arizona?
For almost a century, liberals have been attempting to use the qualifying language of the 2nd Amendment to argue that it restricts, rather than expands, the fundamental right of the People to “keep and bear arms” – supposedly limiting gun ownership to only those serving in “a well regulated militia…” But they may have set a Constitutional trap that could soon snap shut on their | Read More »
You Know Democrats Are Desperate When…
If you had any doubt that Democrats are in a panic about the November mid-term election, you need only look at how they are now trying to paint themselves as pro-gun. As the Boston Globe reports: MANCHESTER, N.H. July 14, 2010 – Democratic candidates in key states are embracing gun owners’ rights, winning favor from the National Rifle Association, a lobby that has long been | Read More »
