Misdirection In The Face Of Crisis

    It’s been a week since the senseless and tragic shooting of 20 people including Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords.  The last seven days have been an incredible exhibition of the art of crisis manipulation to obtain maximum misdirection for political gain.  In the media, the shooter has become almost irrelevant, his violent action an afterthought.  However, what has been emphasized by both sides of the political | Read More »

    No Defense Against Insanity

    Today we are saddened by news of another senseless act of violence in America.  This time it is an attack against a Congresswoman, and civilians at an Arizona shopping center.  A clearly deranged man shot and killed six, and wounded perhaps nineteen more including the Representative.  This post won’t be long, because the situation is tragic, and I don’t really want to pander to it.  | Read More »

    Is Repeal Of DADT Risky For Military?

    So Congress has repealed President Clinton’s “Don’t ask, don’t tell” (DADT) policy for our military.  To me, it is more like DKDC (Don’t know, don’t care).  As a Conservative Libertarian, I really couldn’t care less about someone’s sexual orientation.  Having said that, I still don’t want to see a gay couple making kissy face at the local baseball game.  For God’s sake, get a room! | Read More »

    Senate Dems Still Don’t Get It

    Here we go again.  The lame duck Congress is floating a $1.1 trillion Senate omnibus bill to accommodate federal funding for 2011.  This bill has twelve separate budgetary issues rolled into one, and they hope to pass it in total with no individual debate or amendment.  This one is a doozy, including thousands of earmarks (worth $8 billion) in a little over 1,900 pages.  Apparently | Read More »

    Obama-GOP Compromise Stinks

    OK, I’m going to make this short and to the point.  The Obama-GOP tax bill should be voted down.  Though it will extend Bush era tax rates for Americans another two years, it is full of the kind of baloney that we all voted against in November.  Not only did Republican leadership negotiate with the President behind closed doors without knowledge or input of the | Read More »

    November 22nd 1963–America’s First 9/11

    I mentioned to a co-worker today that it was November 22nd, the anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.  I was lamenting the fact that in recent years, the date seems to pass without much if any recognition by the media or politicians.  I opined the lack of notice for such a life changing event.  “That day,” I said, “this Country and the | Read More »

    Endangered RINOs And Conservative Purists

    Last week’s announcement by Rep. Michele Bachman (R-MN), that she is no longer interested in the House GOP Conference Chair isn’t really much of a surprise.  The meaning and ramifications of her move however are open to much conjecture and prognostication.  That said, perhaps the two biggest questions to be answered in light of this development are:  Will RINOs become an endangered species, and how | Read More »

    Some Republicans As Clueless As Dems

    On November 2nd, we witnessed one of the largest political shifts to the Right in this Country’s history.  It is what we have been working for during the last two years, and it was gratifying to see that the American people have realized we were going in the wrong direction.  But now, the work begins.  Now the Republican leadership must lead and they must focus | Read More »

    “It ain’t over till it’s over”

    In the famous if obtuse words of Yogi Berra, “It ain’t over till it’s over”. The Polls are looking favorable in most important races in this Country, but favorable can be way too close.  It has been said that the only way a Republican can win in Washington State is to bury their opponent.  If the election requires a re-count, it is amazing how many | Read More »

    Williams Thrown Under Bus By Progressive Tyrants

    It is fun to watch Progressives throw their associates under the bus in order to forward their agenda.  Everyone that Obama’s administration has sacrificed has been yet another reason for optimism.  I was shocked today however to hear that Liberal Juan Williams was fired from his position at NPR (National Public Radio).  Williams has been a well respected journalist at NPR, but also an ongoing | Read More »
