    Reaching out to the Black Community

    An article by Jason Riley got me thinking about outreach.  I personally believe that conservatives have the best solutions for the nation, all of the nation, including African Americans.  Thinking about how to present it, I may be wrong and this may not resonate with anyone anywhere, but if any of our candidates wants it here you go. Start– Thank you for having me here today.  I | Read More »

    How to win defunding

    First, in all steps end the ability of Democrats to filibuster.  Use reconciliation, nuclear option, force them to actually speak for hours on end, or something else, I don’t care.  Just break it. Step 1 – pass a full CR with a stipulation that no funds go to PP.  This is then vetoed Step 2 – Pass an AG funding bill (food stamps) including the | Read More »

    When Taliban morality exceeds Army morality

    There are two stories currently in the news about Afghanistan.  The first is about a Green Beret who was removed from a camp in Kunduz and discharged for beating a child rapist.  Personally I think the man showed great restraint in that the rapist ran away.  I personally would not have expected him to be able to walk. The second story is about how the Taliban has retaken Kunduz. | Read More »

    Crony Capitalism – Marco Rubio edition

    Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) 92% is laying out a plan to encourage companies to offer benefits to parents taking time off for new births.  His plan is basically to offer a tax break to companies who provide paid time off to employees.  Sounds great, but… First, this probably will not change the practices of many companies.  If a McDonald’s franchise is running | Read More »

    Expect Trump to Suspend his Campaign

    First, Trump surely knew that he wouldn’t win.  He is an arrogant blowhard, but not a moron.  If he expected to win he would have learned the basics of policy (either foreign or domestic).  If he expected to win he would have actually put his campaign in a furnished room.  If he expected to win he would attend critical forums.  If he expected to win he would | Read More »

    Cruz’ path to the nomination

    First, everyone knows there will be a winnowing.  Rick Perry has already dropped out.  Grahm, Jindal, Santorum, and Walker have all registered at 0% in at least one recent poll and so probably will end up dropping out before votes are cast (additionally Walker vendors are apparently owed $100k that hasn’t been paid).  Christie and Kasich can do no better than Bush and so will | Read More »

    The sickening moral inconsistency of The Left

    I could link to articles, but the material is so well known that it isn’t needed.  First Obergefell v. Hodges.  In this case a “fundamental right” was voted on recognized by the Supreme Court to have your sexual deviancy fully recognized and supported by your neighbors.  If they didn’t want to bake you a cake, then take all their money and send them to re-education | Read More »

    Walker’s Proposed Amendment – Failure Theater edition

    So Scott Walker has called for a constitutional amendment that will specifically delegate to the states the authority to decide the definition of marriage.  As the governor of Wisconsin he has the authority to call for a special session of the legislature with the specific purpose of considering a formal request to amend the constitution.  Yet… nothing. Here we have a “leader” pandering to the | Read More »

    Thank You Ted Cruz

    So, apparently the Constitution affirms the right for any two people to apply for and receive a marriage license from the state regardless of little things like whether it is possible for the relationship by nature to produce citizenry (the entire reason for recognizing and privileging marriage in the first place).  Thus we have in 11 years turned the entirety of human civilization on its | Read More »

    Reservations about Walker Amplified

    I believe I have been fairly consistent in claiming that I would probably be okay with voting for Walker, but he is not my first choice.  He has a record of fighting liberals and winning in a purple state on economic issues, HUGE plus mark for him.  However, I have a hard time believing he is conservative across the spectrum.  In many ways it is | Read More »
