I Have Found the Elusive Pushmi-Pullyu! And Two Good Reasons to be Optimistic.
A Pushmi-Pullyu is a unicorn-type character from Dr. Doolittle with two heads that is perpetually at odds with itself. Once thought to be extinct, low and behold, it was right under our tent. It’s the GOP! The “Focus” article from EE advised us, the voters, to keep our eye on the real issues and implore our lawmakers to do the same. Sound advice. There’s just one problem; | Read More »
JURASSIC CONGRESS Members are STEALING our Future!
There’s a saying in the biggest retirement community in the U.S. called The Villages in Florida that for years, all potential buyers ask their realtor (and perhaps elsewhere in the country but I only speak from experience): When is the best time to buy a house here? The answer is always the same: today. And the realtors are right since it’s mostly been shielded from the recession | Read More »
WE HAVE CROSSED THE RUBICON- Thanks to RepubliCons Joining the Gangster of 8
To cross the Rubicon means to take an irrevocable step that commits one to a specific course. When Caesar was about to cross he quoted from a play by Menander to say “let the die be cast.” The Rubicon was a stream separating Cisalpine Gaul from Italy. When Julius Caesar led his troops from Gaul to the Rubicon, Caesar paused on the northern end of | Read More »
11 Million Who? Connecting Immigration Reform to Big Government Eyes and Ears
In a very strange presser to sell O’care last week, the president told us that no one is listening to conversations of everyday Americans after we discovered that 100,000,000 citizen’s domestic VZ phone records were collected for no apparent reason. The hypocrite told us it’s for our own good since it helps stop terrorists like the Boston brothers and the shoe bomber…oops, they didn’t stop either one. Citizens, not government, | Read More »
The Watercooler ~ Did I Miss the Privacy Memo?
Dear RedState: I haven’t been an active participant in the daily exchange lately for the past few weeks so did I missed the memo that the privacy rules were changed? Please point me to the notice if I’m amiss. Last night I noticed that if I up-vote a comment, my User Name is clearly listed when hovering over the up-votes arrow. However, the same action on down-votes doesn’t produce | Read More »
Follow the Org Charts of the If If, There is No There There, and I Don’t know Admin (Part I: Benghazi)
Follow the money is the usual expression of law and order cases and FBI cases of all types like the mafia, big drug busts and of course big con games. But it doesn’t always work that way in government, minus green energy and O’care waivers for union buddies, when all the characters plead innocent or ignorant. So our best bet is to follow the trail of appointees via | Read More »
The Thrill is Gone…and the Wheels Have Come Off (Important Updates)
When the president loses “I get a thrill up my leg” Chris Matthews, then the writing is on the wall: this president is toast. I sometimes Lefty lurk on MSNBC to hear what the latest nonsense they are spewing and just happened to watch the 7:00-8:00am hour today. I’m glad I have a DVR because I was so shocked at some of the statements, I had | Read More »
Hello GOP? Connect the Dots NOW for a Smaller Government!
Preface: I wrote this last Friday and intended to publish it on Monday after a bit of tweaking over the weekend. Yet the scandals kept coming so I kept revising it. Of course tomorrow is another day that God willing, will shine a bright light on this administration. Today’s headlines are very telling and should compel every American to ask: What the hay is going on with my country and | Read More »
National Security: Yes, Yes, Yes, No and Maybe. Sadly it’s a Partisian Issue.
Well now we know. The Sunday shows made it crystal clear that national security is mostly based upon Party affiliation and protection of the president by the Left but then again, what’s new in our twisted political world. It’s hinged upon gun control per a leading Democrat, Sen. Durbin. He said: ” background checks will make us a safer nation”, referencing the gun control bills that failed. On the Boston bombing he said, | Read More »
The Watercooler ~ Are the Boston Bombers Lone, Self-radicalized Individuals?
As usual, the Watercooler is an open-thread and I didn’t see any posts on today’s news that 3 more students were arrested for aiding and abetting the Boston terrorists. First, many thanks are due to westcoastpatriette for posting a daily thread which I find useful so as not to thread-jack. After conversing with wcp last night, she just needs a break so didn’t mind if others take up | Read More »
