Why I Declared War In My Condo’s Mail Room
To what degree are Americans politically polarized? How does the battle between Republicans and Democrats play out in our everyday lives? Here to help answer those questions is a first hand report from the “front lines” – in this case, the community mail room in our condominium. It all started when a friend who is a Republican political consultant asked if my husband and I | Read More »
SURPRISE! Louisiana’s Privatized Charity Hospitals Come In $52 Million Under Budget
Go figure, right? We all just KNEW that privatizing a bunch of government-run hospitals for poor people would explode the budget. Because that’s happened…never. Louisiana spent $52 million less than was budgeted for Gov. Bobby Jindal’s privatization deals for the LSU hospitals that provide care to the uninsured in the recently ended fiscal year, according to data provided by the state health department. Jindal’s health secretary, | Read More »
Sen. Lamar Alexander must be in deep trouble
This only can mean President Barack Obama’s favorite Tennessee Republican, Sen. Lamar Alexander, is in deep primary doo-doo: “State Rep. Joe Carr lent a company affiliated with a prominent supporter $200,000 in campaign funds last year — a transaction that campaign finance experts said appears to be extremely unusual. “Life Watch Pharmacy, a Nashville company led by venture capitalist and conservative fundraiser Andrew Miller, was given the | Read More »
The Next Front in the Battle over Obamacare
**Promoted from the diaries. – Aaron** You may be seeing a concerted attempt by liberals and their media allies to convince you that Obamacare is 1) succeeding; 2) losing political impact for the midterms; and 3) being emphasized less frequently by Republicans on the campaign trail. In fact, all three of these are false. Just this week, we are seeing the latest front in the | Read More »
The Watercooler ~ 100 Kansas Republican Cry Babies Endorse a Dem for Governor
Conservatives should take comfort in knowing that part of the underhanded tactics we are watching establishment Republicans engage in against us is a sign of how threatened they feel and how angry they are over the gains conservatives are making. While the war inside the party is hardly over, desperate attempts to maintain control are causing the establishment to panic and make reckless decisions. While | Read More »

Just My Opinion, that’s all.
It’s been a tough couple of years for me, since the last election. My view of this country, it’s voters, and it’s political process took a beating, and since then, hasn’t improved. I have watched every scandal unfold over the last couple of years under things administration, and with each and every new revelation, I think: When is someone going to do something?

The Next Court Term: Five Cases That May Make News- Part 1
Thus far, the United States Supreme Court has accepted a little more than 35 cases for the October 2014 term. If recent terms are any indication, this represents about half their docket. There are several jurisdictional and patent cases in the upcoming term. In this entry, I would like to highlight four cases of interest. The first case is Alabama Democratic Conference vs. Alabama, a | Read More »
(GASP!!!) Obama has lost Joe Biden: Now THIS is a BIG F*****G DEAL!!!
It’s not easy to take seriously anything that comes out of Biden’s mouth: indeed, one wonders if the VP himself ever really understands what he is saying, or attempting to convey. However, it appears that Joe is attempting to put some distance between himself and his boss. Unless he decides to move to New Zealand, ( or the moon) it won’t work. You can watch | Read More »
How to Relieve Overpopulation in China
It’s quite clear that the United States now welcomes most people who want to come here illegally, but repels most people who want to come here legally. This is part and parcel of the pathetic games being played in Washington D.C. So bring on the Chinese. That country’s government has long sought to contain an exploding population, and this is the perfect opportunity. They could | Read More »
Federal Procurement the Smoking Gun on Immigration?
In just the past few weeks we’ve learned of a “crisis” at the border by “unaccompanied minors” who’ve travelled from Central America. Ponder how long the development of the “marketing” to solicit folks to make the journey, and to conceive and then “build” the “infrastructure” of the transportation network, must have taken, and by whom it might have been funded (directly or indirectly). Now consider | Read More »
Dr. Ben Carson’s alternative to Obamacare – Part Four
In the usual back and forth between the Democrats who want socialized medicine and the rest of the world who don’t, the Saul Alinsky-ites of the left often rail about the lack of an alternative from the Republicans. Besides the fact that this is total bovine fecal matter—Bobby Jindal’s proposal for example—there have been many alternatives offered to improve our previous system without nuking it | Read More »

The Democrat seeking to unseat Illinois congressman Adam “The Young John McCain” Kinzinger, Randall Olsen, spoke with the Dixon Telegraph recently and boy is he continuing the areas Democrats habit of throwing up the weakest opponents to challenge for the 16th congressional district.

Media Will Ignore Fraud in Obama Administration Small Business Data
I am predicting that, if and when, the Obama Administration finally does release the FY 2013 small business contracting data it will be unreported in the mainstream media that it includes billions of dollars in contracts to corporate giants. Every year of the Obama Administration, the Small Business Administration (SBA) releases their annual small business “Scorecard” data late on a Friday afternoon to try and | Read More »

FUNDAMENTALLY CHANGING AMERICA
Barack Obama’s promise to “fundamentally change America” is succeeding beyond all expectations. Using the power and influence of government and its purse strings he and Democrats have successfully endangered the future for our young, the elderly and minority Americans. Our younger generation is now overburdened with trillions in unpaid public debt and responsibility for subsidizing senior’s medical costs associated with ObamaCare . Ironically, this group | Read More »

Congressmen Seek Answers from Government-made Billionaire
In an age of crony capitalism, billionaire Elon Musk has often been called a “triple dipper.” He has used federal stimulus funds, handouts and giveaways to get rich, most famously on Tesla, his electronic car company. In fact, Tesla, makes the bulk of its money not by revenues from car sales but through the sale of emissions permits and subsidies from the government. Musk’s Solar | Read More »
Defense News Editorial: Full Speed Ahead on F-35
The Pentagon announced this week that while the recently grounded F-35 fleet will be returning to limited flight, it will not be participating in this month’s Farnborough Air Show. The fighter jets had already missed the other prominent European air show of the summer, the Royal International Air Tattoo.

Why Natalie Tennant Can’t Win
For the better half of a year, the West Virginia Democratic Party could not seem to find anyone to run against Shelley Moore Capito for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Jay Rockefeller. Many political observers said that Capito was “unbeatable” and that any Democrat would have a hard time launching a credible campaign, or even beating her. After months of recruiting, including | Read More »
How can a politician suck? Let us count the ways…
People are all atwitter today over still another discussion of partisan suckery I think the situation calls for a timeout, amidst charges of false equivalence, etc., and ponder what this means.

Looking Ahead to 2016…again
The obvious first order of business this year will be to maintain the House and win the Senate. With that out of the way, all political attention will then turn to 2016 and the open presidential race.

The Second Amendment Debate and Why We Are Losing It
We Conservatives are convinced that truth is on our side. And it is. On just about any issue, the debate comes down to facts being presented by the Right and innuendo, propaganda and appeals to emotion being put forth by the Left. Logically, rationally, reasonably, we should win every debate. Right? So, why do we end up behind the eight ball? Why are the Leftists | Read More »
The Watercooler ~ Irreconcilable Differences: Grounds for Divorce from Establishment Repubs
I’m a total team player. Loyal to a fault some would say. I have dutifully followed Erick and RedState’s counsel to vote conservative in the primary and Republican in the general. In reality, what other choices do we have? We know that trying to form a third party is doomed from the outset. So, where do we go from here now that the evidence is | Read More »
Economic patriotism = fascism
Companies must hire more people, pay their taxes, participate in Obamacare, and support the Government at all costs. That’s the strong message that President Obama has been spouting for years, and the answer-men and women with whom he’s surrounded himself are simply his bullhorns.

I’m a liberal Democrat
Including the 2nd. 33% of Democrats supported the recall of Giron 15 Democratic Senators voted against the AWB. Support for gun rights are bipartisan.

Obama and Holder need a new deck of cards

To Win in 2014, Unity is a Must Between the Republican Party and Tea Party

The Creepy Donors Behind OFA
Organizing for Action (OFA) is the successor to Organizing for America, Barack Obama’s reelection campaign. This is proof that despite winning in 2012, Mr. Obama continues to be the Campaigner-in-Chief if nothing else. While Harry Reid- Nevada’s solution for insomnia- suffers from KBPDS (Koch Brother Paranoid Derangement Syndrome), OFA is organized as a 501(c)4 organization that most likely received no scrutiny from Lois Lerner and | Read More »
My Counter Proposal: A 2-State Solution for California

Extreme Pro-Abortion Senate Bill Would Eviscerate Over 200 Pro-Life Laws in America
Over the past few years, numerous states have followed the will of the people to increase protections for women and unborn children by enacting reasonable, commonsense restrictions on abortion.
Pro-abortion radicals on the other hand have been trying to challenge these laws in the courts and the court of public opinion to no avail. Now they are attempting to eviscerate these pro-life laws with one piece of federal pro-abortion legislation, S.B. 1696.

Next presidential candidate
Time is running out to be able to pick freely and widely among all the unpolished stones to choose from.

Here are some of the things I will be looking for. *Age of 45-65: | Read More »
NH Democrat Governor Hassan Has Not Signed Speech Killing Bill. Why?
Members of the New Hampshire State “Republican Majority Senate,” sponsored and passed NH SB120, a bill that modified finance rules for money related to political speech. Money used to engage in political speech must be regulated, we are told by incumbent Republicans, but this is not a violation of our first amendment rights because money isn’t speech. We’ve taken to calling it the Incumbent protection | Read More »
Illegals not fleeing violence, government report concludes
Breibart Texas broke the story yesterday: American intelligence suggests that illegal immigration is fueled by the belief among those headed our way, that they would receive permisos and be able to stay in the US. A leaked document from the elite El Paso Intelligence Center, staffed by DEA and 21 other federal, state, and local agencies, contains analysis about the motivations of the current wave of illegals.

The Watercooler ~ Israel’s Iron Dome Protects Her from Hamas Rockets
The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) says that Hamas militants have launched at least 1,000 rockets at Israeli cities in the last six days. In a bid to halt such attacks, Israel launched “Operation Protective Edge,” and thanks largely to Israel’s Iron Dome, no Israeli fatalities have been reported. Today’s Watercooler is a brief lesson on how the Iron Dome works and why it is so | Read More »
Barack Obama doesn’t see America the way you do
Barack Obama, hailing from Kenya – if only for college application purposes – and growing up in Indonesia, has always had something of an outsider’s perspective of the United States. Even when he lived in the United States, he lived in Hawaii, an island that up until two years before he was born was not even a state. Of course the United States is a | Read More »
Environmental Propagandists Full Of It Over Dog Poo Run Off
Each year, the Maryland Department of Natural Resources publishes an educational brochure directed towards children titled “The Maryland Bay Game”. Often, the pamphlet contains interesting information regarding the state’s geography and natural resources. Some of the content, however, is outright environmental propaganda. For example, there is one activity consisting of a maze titled “Scoop The Poop”. The text admonishes that, by scooping the poop of | Read More »
Greg Sargent and the Very Special Pig
Greg Sargent is one of a legion of lefties… …decrying the amazingly awful, late-trending, headlong rush into national oblivion brought on by Republicans mysteriously refusing to be nice and compromise with compassionate, pure-hearted progressives.

When Illegals Don’t Think They’re Here Illegally, Chaos Ensues
PREFACE: This in not about the young children crossing the border. This is about adults and their thinking, not children. A very vocal and visible illegal immigrant, Jose Antonio Vargas, wrote about his visit to the border town of McAllen, Texas in Politico Magazine and the vigil he lead for the unaccompanied alien children: ….a crowd of about 30 people—mostly undocumented youth, a few citizen allies—started chanting something in | Read More »

Unsurprisingly Corporations are Gaming Obamacare
Star War fans will always remember when Obi-Wan Kenobi described the spaceport Mos Eisley on the planet Tatooine as a “wretched hive of scum and villainy.” It’s easy to recall that description when you learn about a conference occurring in Washington, DC this week known as the 340B Coalition. “Scum and villainy” might be too strong a term to describe the conferees but “cronies and | Read More »
EPA’s new superpower: Wage garnishment without due process
The same EPA that brought you Climate Change Gone Wild, Felonious Follies, and the classic Poops In The Hall, now offers a convenient automatic payment option: wage garnishment without a court order.
