    Show Me Your Budget

    Vice President Joe Biden, during a speech in North Carolina, made the following statement. My dad used to have another saying, for real. And, by the way, I’ve been saying this for 30 years. And I’m glad to see that Congressman Ryan likes his dad, too, and quotes his dad. I mean that sincerely. But my dad [had] a lot of wisdom. Every time someone | Read More »

    Jack Ryan is not Running for President

    In Tom Clancy’s novel Executive Orders, Jack Ryan becomes President after a long and successful career in the CIA. A terrorist takes out the President, Congress and the Supreme Court, just after he was sworn in as Vice President, replacing someone that had resigned. It was done to re-unite the country, but was only supposed to last for one year. What is so appealing about | Read More »

    Kevin Lundberg (R-CAND, CO-02)

    One of the few things that most of us have agreed upon during this Presidential election cycle is the need to continue to improve Congress. We know that even if the best conservative candidate is elected he’ll need a solid conservative Congress to accomplish real reforms. And if we end up with a re-elected Obama, we’ll still need a solid conservative Congress to thwart his | Read More »

    Newt Gingrich for President

    It’s time. The silly season officially ends tomorrow as we begin to see rhetoric converted to votes. Although the Colorado caucus and primary are not for some time, I felt it was important to select a candidate. I recently wrote a diary with my evaluations of the candidates, so I see no reason to repeat that information here. As many of you likely expected, I’m | Read More »

    A View from the Cheap Seats

    I have to start all the way back on August 29, 2008. It was the day after the Democratic National Convention ended in Denver. I was leaving on a business trip to Italy that day, and found myself on a flight to Boston filled with delegates from the Convention. As you might imagine, there was quite a bit of chatter about the convention and the | Read More »

    The 442nd

    Two of the past three years I’ve written a diary on the Day of Remembrance. I grew up in the area in and around San Jose, California so I’m familiar with its history. Last year, I wrote a diary about the 442nd Regimental Combat Team. On November 6th, the remaining members of the 442nd received the Congressional Gold Medal. Here is the statement from the | Read More »

    Candidate Slogans – If They Were Honest

    Michelle Bachmann – “You’re retarded if you don’t vote for me…or you might be.” Herman Cain – “It’s about my management style. I’ll find people that know about that stuff later.” Newt Gingrich – “I’ve known more in and out of politics than anyone else.” Jon Huntsman – “You will soon come to know the greatness that is me.” Ron Paul – “AUDIT THE FED!!! | Read More »

    Jobs

    Yeah, that’s pretty much it. That should be the singular, loud and clear message from the Republican candidates for President. Sure, the right candidate will have foreign policy experience, executive experience, and a strong understanding of how government works. Every election is about something, and this one is no different. This election will be about jobs. This is the issue foremost in the minds of | Read More »

    Budget Battles and Dying Hills

    Yesterday there was a vote in the House on another short-term (3-week) Continuing Resolution (CR) to fund the federal government. Much has been written about Republican Freshman and hills to die on. One thing upon which we all agree is that spending has gotten completely out of control, and something must be done about it. Colorado’s fourth congressional district has a new Republican representative after | Read More »

    It’s Fracking Dangerous!

    Hydrofracking, or hydraulic fracturing, that is, or so says Ian Urbina of the New York Times as reported by the Denver Post. Look, there’s a picture of it happening in Rifle, Colorado! In our beautiful Rocky Mountains!! Look! The description even tells us how awful this is! Rifle has natural-gas wells. Fracking a relatively new drilling method known as high-volume horizontal hydraulic fracturing that carries | Read More »
