    The Sad Demise of Newt’s Solution Lab

    I am writing this in support of ideas put forth by Wonkish and Avgio in http://www.redstate.com/wonkish1/2010/12/28/conservative-innovation-the-long-war/ In a comment there I wrote the following paragraph. May I suggest you (we) figure out a way to funnel good ideas to policy makers in the GOP. I posted extensively on Newt’s American Solutions Lab. When I started, I was a fan of Gingrich. but there was absolutely | Read More »

    It’s time for some real leadership on START and 9/11.

    Like it or not, the tax compromise is a done deal. So is repeal of DADT.  The two remaining issues for the lame duck session are the START treaty and the 9/11 responders medical aid bill. On the 9/11 bill, can’t the GOP leadership offer a clean bill accomplishing the purpose? Normally, it should go through the committee process, and it will next year if | Read More »

    Don’t abort…Just deport

    In another thread, I owned up to feeling some moral qualms on my opposition to the the dream act. After reading other comments, I must thank my fellow redstaters for teaching me that the golden rule doesn’t apply to Mexican children. There is a lot wrong with the content of the dream act.  But the ferocity of the opposition and the gleeful support for deporting | Read More »

    Schadenfreude

    You know, it’s that tingling feeling in your leg when your adversary is gnashing his teeth. It is not really healthy, but like good brandy and a fine cigar, you can enjoy it and repent in the morning. The question I propose, just for fun, is two-fold. First, Who do you most want to be unhappy?  Second, which individual losses by their candidates or wins | Read More »

    KELO, KELO, KELO

    Last night, Christine O’Donnell was embarrassed when she could not name a bad Supreme court decision. Every Republican running for any office should know the details of how Suzette Kelo and her neighbors had their property stolen by corrupt officials of New London, CT on behalf of Pfizer. It has been described as Robin Hood in reverse. Five liberal justices, opposed by Rehnquist, Thomas, Scalia, | Read More »

    A Kennedy with principles.

    Obama’s buddy, Bill Ayers just got dissed by that rarest of creatures—A Kennedy with a real job in the private sector.  Comrade Ayers, after an undistinguished career of indoctrinating students to hate everything they should love, has retired (3 cheers). A mean spirited man whose publications amount to little more than a polemic against morality and reason has held a professorship at a publicly funded | Read More »

    Now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of the party. Part 1.

    Who first said it?  As best I can tell it first appeared in a typing book. But it seems like good advice for the GOP and conservatives. The highest priority is to take the House, ridding the country of the worst Speaker in history. The next is to take the Senate. The next is to defeat Harry Reid. The tea party wing is justifiably feeling | Read More »

    Things I know now

    In no particular order… Things I knew before the 2008 elections: 1. Obama and his progressive crowd are socialists and communists. They only differ in  where they are in the authoritarian/totalitarian spectrum. 2. Progressives despise democracy, free speech, the rule of law,  and freedom except if they are killing preborn babies or keeping violent criminals and illegal immigrants from being prosecuted. 3. They favor a | Read More »
