    The Reagan Legacy: Osama bin Laden dead

    d Yes, it’s true…. As hard as it is to believe that Barack Obama didn’t single-handedly take out Osama bin Laden between black-tie galas and lining-up putts, there’s another iconic president we should thank: Ronald Reagan. When the Gipper took office, U.S. Special Forces and Tactical Unit Teams were under-funded, under-trained, under-manned and in disarray…. But, as Thomas Mcardle writes: With the same visionary perseverance | Read More »

    Muslim sensitivities? What about AMERICAN sensitivities, Mr. President?

    Honestly, I haven’t been this addled since the early morning hours after my first pint of vodka. But as the O-administration spins, we can at least be confident that it’s clueless to the core. The decision to not release images of Osama bin Laden dead is one made by a president more concerned about the sentiments of our enemy than American citizens. “Reach out” goes | Read More »

    Soldiers Without Boots: defeating the Left through social media

    “I will cut the deficit in half in my first two years.”

 ~Barack Obama Friends, all of us, in an era of progressive mindlessness, must speak loudly and often in defense of the truth. My Facebook page, Soldiers Without Boots, is 100% dedicated to defeating progressives through the use of social media. Below are page “statuses,” composed by me, above articles presented there.

    Listing of lizard may shut down Texas oil

    You can’t make this up. First, a Spotted Owl destroyed the timber industry of the Pacific Northwest, then a minnow turned the most productive agricultural land in the world into a dustbowl, and now, as energy prices spike and the economy sputters, they’re going after Texas with a scurrilous reptile. Specifically, the Dunes Sagebrush Lizard. That’s the latest more-important-than-people critter being used to lock-up resources | Read More »

    From Hope and Change to Duck and Hide: Obama swings left

    Is this guy for real? The transmogrification of Barack Obama, who when he’s not getting down with Jay-Z is out spewing clap-trap on the Fantasy Tour, has mired him squarely in the political gutter. Anyone who’s been to the pump lately – or for that matter, a Benghazi rocket battle – has to know that he lacks leadership, is a community organizer, and practices a | Read More »

    Pelosi and Dems cash-in in Wisconsin

    Call me a glutton for punishment, but in order to keep an eye on the moonbat crowd, I receive e-mails from Nancy Pelosi. Every time there’s a “crisis,” she’s there, cranking the spigot for cash, cash, cash. When Jared Loughner unloaded in Tucson, dollar-signs filled her orbitals. And, yes, the rise of “extremists” in Wisconsin – the one that puts its public employee collective bargaining | Read More »

    Failure to honor Washington: a triumph of the Left

    On this, what would have been George Washington’s 278th birthday, Americans will go about their business, a free people, without acknowledging – nor celebrating – the man whose toil on their behalf was measureless. I say “free people,” sadly aware that we’re becoming less free, and that diminution of Washington symbolizes the design to “alter” history to make this so. This, of course, derives from | Read More »

    Fighting campus speech-codes with FIRE

    Speech-code. Sounds like something from George Orwell’s pen or a Stephen King tale, but it’s not. According to Adam Kissel, from the Foundation of Individual Rights in Education, two-thirds of college campuses enforce speech-codes, violating the 1st amendment rights of their students. Thanks to FIRE, however, codes are being challenged, speech is alive, and awareness is being raised. While two-thirds isn’t good, this is down | Read More »

    Message to Congress: Don’t “fix” ObamaCare

    In the wake of Judge Vinson’s evisceration of ObamaCare, it appears that the plaintiffs – the attorneys general and governors of the 26 states involved in the suit – are recognizing their power. While the administration pretends nothing happened, they’re standing up, as they should, against the law. From the WSJ: “For Wisconsin, the federal health care law is dead,” Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen | Read More »

    Sorry, Bill Maher, the NFL is not socialist

    Sorry, Bill Maher, the NFL is not socialist Bill Maher, the Hollywood Jesus-hater who receives talking points from Playboy Bunnies, is at it again. In a recent article, he claims that the National Football League owes its success to “socialism,” that it thrives, not because of capitalism but due to redistribution of revenue amongst teams. A critique of his theory – that the sharing of | Read More »
