Thanks for nothing Paul Ryan
In negotiations there is a saying “shoot for the stars and you might get the moon.” Basically ask for everything you could dream about and you might be able to end up with close to what you really wanted. Republicans in Congress have never learned this lesson. They shoot for their nuts and typically end up shooting their own feet. Meaning they start out asking | Read More »
Captured AQ leader great news, but why do we know it?
I have read a few places this morning that we captured an AQ leader in Tripoli Libya. That news in and of itself is a great thing. We can interrogate him – turns out no Miranda issued yet – and hopefully get some real intelligence that can be used. That of course is a fallacy. Abu Anas al-Libi was taken off the streets of Libya | Read More »
Po Pimps in 4th Grade
Maybe you have seen this maybe you haven’t but here ladies and gentlemen is just another example of Common Core making sure that our children are ready for the world. I mean once they get through school they have to be able to survive and that’s where Common Core comes in. I mean how else can they explain teaching kids about a song called Po | Read More »
Just like that government accountability died a little more.
So the D.C. Court of Appeals has decided that who the President of the United States meets with is well, none of your damn business. In a decision that contains a level asshatedness not seen since the Obamacare decision, the Appeals Court unanimously decided that the logs of who visits the Oval Office is beyond the reach of the FOIA. Someone is going to have | Read More »
God Bless America!
On this day 237 years ago, 56 men signed a document who, had things gone a touch different, would have been hanged for treason against the crown. These men were willing to pledge to each other their lives, fortunes and sacred honor, in the name of Divine Providence. All for the idea, the belief, that there was a better way. A way forward that prevented | Read More »
2nd Amendment and who wants to throw it away.
A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state; and the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed. (2nd Amendment) When those words were attached to the Bill of Rights the Founders had a very specific purpose in mind. It is not a coincidence that it was added second only to the freedom of speech, | Read More »
Is Obama squirming over sequestration?
On Jan 1st Congress and Obama made a deal that push sequestration back to March 1st. In that Obama was able to get his tax increases that he wanted on the “wealthiest Americans”, and apparently the GOP managed to screw up and paint him into a corner. That is the only thing that can explain why Obama is all of a sudden willing to do | Read More »
Jindal still has some fixin to do in LA
Every Tuesday at Fresh Market stores in LA, you are able to buy a gallon of milk for 2.99, this was a promotion that the store had been running for some time. Now, thanks to some unidentified complaint, the State Agriculture and Forestry Commissioner Mike Strain says that this is illegal and has to stop. No seriously a State Commissioner told a store that it | Read More »
Does the No budget No pay bill really make a difference?
I ask this in all seriousness. The House passing the bill is a good step I think, but where does it really get us? It allows Obama to continue his reckless spending until April at the earliest and only means that the Senate has to do the job that the Constitution requires them to do already. So again I ask does this really make a | Read More »

The Debt Limit is the right fight.
I have been reading a lot of things today about how people out there are thinking that we should not have the fight on the debt limit because it is as they say “the wrong fight”. People like Newt Gingrich think that we should wait and fight in March at the end of the CR and allow the debt limit to raise now and make | Read More »
