Senior Chief, U.S. Navy. 22 years , now retired. I have literally been around the world. Not all at once, mind you, but I've frickin been there. I'm the sheeit, just ask me.


    I agree with Moe

    Moe has it right here. I agree with him. for all the reasons there are. Historical, economic, individualist. Whatever. There is nothing, in my opinion, that communism has to show for itself, except pain and grief. And dedicated fans in the prosperous West, who don’t or won’t recognize that they can’t have what they have now if they get the regime they want. Moe and | Read More »

    Forget John McCain, THIS is straight talk *UPDATE*

    Got the embed figured out, thanks izoneguy. Chris Christie for President! I’m not kidding. Did you see the look on the people’s faces? Even those who you KNOW would normally disagree? This guy has an ability to connect at a visceral level, and speak truths that no one can deny, no matter their political persuasion. I don’t care if he’s fat. He gets the job | Read More »

    Martin A. Knight, you made the NYT

    No kidding, they’re wringing their hands about tea partyers signing up to be committeemen. Even if they didn’t reference your work here (or did they?) to encourage fellow Redstaters to get directly involved, we know you are an important part of this endeavor. Bravo Zulu, Martin. You’re making a difference. The opposition (in and out of the party) is nervous. And we are poised | Read More »

    Tiger has a lesson for all of us, just not Golf

    We have a Fifth Amendment, and it comes in quite handy. Tiger Woods, as we all, has the “right not to incriminate himself” and NOT talk to the police. He followed that simple directive and received this: Tiger Woods will be cited for careless driving in a car crash outside his Orlando-area mansion, but will not face criminal charges, the Florida Highway Patrol said Tuesday. | Read More »

    Sarah Palin’s problem to solve

    Toby Harden, in his “give her a talk show” article hits what I think is an essential truth and problem about a possible Palin candidacy: This is not snooty elitism – it’s based on the perception that Mrs Palin’s track record is thin and that while she has real star quality her political prescriptions are vague. Sound familiar? That may have worked for Barack Obama | Read More »

    UN Ice Cream

    And here is why I like Mark Steyn, even if he is a Canuck. Half a decade or so back, I wrote: “It’s a good basic axiom that if you take a quart of ice-cream and a quart of dog feces and mix ’em together the result will taste more like the latter than the former. That’s the problem with the U.N.” I think he’s | Read More »

    Squirelling away ACORNs

    It’s about numbers – not only bringing money in, but people into the organization’s orbit. “Organize the unorganized” as it says at the end of their Core Principles. They can use these names and numbers to grow their base. I’m sure they are paid by their sponsoring groups and various government agencies based upon how many contracts they write. No contracts, no money. Based upon | Read More »


    This guy has some STONES

    Big, heavy brass ones. Those annoying parts of male anatomy you see dangling off of the back of pickup trucks? They cast the mold from this guy’s stuff. Here’s what I have noticed from your coverage: You brought in the damage control crowd to FRAME the story. Before even airing our damning Baltimore video. You know your audience would turn on ACORN if you showed | Read More »

    HOW late was the President the other night?

    15 minutes? What the? Does he think the rest of us work on HIS schedule? We have a saying in the Navy, “If you’re on time, you’re late.” We also know there are events that conspire to stymie the best plans of mice and men. We accommodate with the “five minute rule” – We’ll wait five minutes, out of respect and understanding. After that, it’s | Read More »

    MAN UP

    This is probably a little bit stale as the news cycle goes – but it’s still IMPORTANT, and worth effort forward. All you Republican party professionals whining about how she’s messing up and ruining the Republican brand. I’m talking to you. MAN UP! Your party needs you. yes, YOU. You’re professional party, right? You know what’s needed to keep Palin from “embarrassing” herself and the | Read More »
