Today, we celebrate our freedom, our independence and our nation’s birthday. We’ll get together with friends and family, attend parades, and watch fireworks this evening. With all the pomp and circumstance of the 4th of July, we remember those who fought (and are still fighting) and died (and still dying) to protect the freedoms we enjoy and to preserve the American way of life. But | Read More »
Goons On Patrol
From Illinois Review… More fun with cameras and Democrats. This time, some friends of Alexi Giannoulias decided they didn’t like being on film. As a result, Giannoulias now has a Bob Etheridge moment by proxy.
We’re With Bill
We went to a Brady fundraiser last night as guests of our boss. It was a great turnout and it was also great to see some familiar faces and some new faces there. We were able to talk to Sen. Brady and as always, he was very nice, and listened to what he had to say and what our concerns were. I’ve met plenty of | Read More »
Is Robert Gibbs Next?
Pure speculation here on my part, no evidence whatsoever, just thinking out loud. We know from experience that if you underperform or goof too many times in Washington DC, heads will roll. Will the BP/Sestak crisis/blunder be the downfall of Robert Gibbs? The handling of the BP crisis by the White House has been a huge PR gaff as the lefty allies in the mainstream | Read More »
Which Of These Is Not Like The Other?
I remember growing up and watching Sesame Street and they always had a game on that show where they showed a series of pictures and then asked, “Which of these is not like the others”. Take a look at these two pictures and tell me which of these is not like the others: Figured it out yet? Both pictures are of Florida’s Governor Charlie Crist | Read More »
A Real Story About Government Healthcare
We’ve all heard the Democrats roll out stories about how the evil insurance companies failed to help those that were in medical need. Pelosi and her Tyranny of the Majority decided that the government running health care would be the answer. But what about the other side of the coin? What about the stories where the government refused to help? I’ve got one for you | Read More »
Who Congress should have listened to but didn’t? Who should the American people should listen to – especially the first 16 seconds of this speech? The same person – Ronald Reagan. Instead, we got this tonight. Is there hope? Absolutely. First, we act to oust those in office now that voted for this monstrosity or sit supported no because they were covered by House members | Read More »
The Charge of the Pelosi Brigade
Written in 1854 by Alfred, Lord Tennyson, the poem “The Charge of the Light Brigade” detailed the suicidal mission of the British Light Cavalry at the Battle of Balaclava. The cavalry was armed with sabres and on horseback but yet they made their charge against heavy resistance by the Russian cannon. The poem honors the bravery of those that died in that charge, but if | Read More »
The Nightmare of Dream Act III
While we are all distracted by the national debate around health care reform, there has been a growing momentum toward the next battle – and it’s going to be a doozy. If you thought the Dream Act II was dead, think again. Recently, President Obama hinted at what was coming down the pipe, and just in time for the mid-term elections if I might add. | Read More »
I’m Sorry, Did We Say You Were Excused?
The Illinois General Assembly last year legalized video poker machines in an effort to raise $200 – 300 million to fund a construction bill that would build schools and fix roads. I think I’ve heard that “gambling will fund education” line before and we’ve all see how well that has worked out for Illinois schools’ budgets. First, the idea that Illinois would raise that type | Read More »
