See You This Weekend in JAX!

    Looking forward to this year’s RedState Gathering.  It’s like a final hurrah for our family, as our eldest is leaving the next week to attend grad school in New Year.  Bittersweet joy. See you there!

    My Two Cents About The First GOP Debate

    Last night’s CNN televised GOP debate is now in the can. Depending on who you ask, Cain won, Bachmann won, whatever. Regardless, CNN lost. Between John King’s relentless grunting and the stupid “this or that?” questions, and the morning after caption, CNN proved themselves the true water boys of the state run media. For me, no one was the shiny standout. They all have their | Read More »

    Thank You, President Obama

    (Before you faint dead-away at the title of this post, bear with me.) Thank you, President Obama. Thank you for arrogance. Your dismissive tone. Your obsession with golf. Your aloofness. Your constantly mixed messages on which god/God you worship. Your elitism. Your inability to speak coherently off the cuff. Your history of corruption. Your confusion regarding American traditions. Your unpresidential behavior. Your lack of a | Read More »

    In a Perfect World…

    They would be throwing parades for Dinesh D’Souza’s Forbes article if it was an expose of a conservative or a Republican, dancing merry gigs like orcs ’round the fire. But instead he gets pouty stabs from a thin-skinned White House. The White House wouldn’t try to pull strings in elections. At least (and correct me if I’m wrong) it didn’t in the past, so publicly. | Read More »

    America Invaded. Move Along, Nothing to See Here.

    (via Memeorandum) Digger at The Cypress Times reports: The bloodbath continues along our southern border and now word is coming in that Los Zetas, the highly trained killers formerly with the Gulf Cartel, have crossed into the United States and taken over at least two ranches in the Laredo, Texas area. I am receiving word that the owners of the ranches have evacuated without being | Read More »

    Five Letter Word Unwelcome in the NC House of Representatives

    Come to think of it, that five letter word is unwelcome almost everywhere. School. Office. Government.  University. Entertainment. Neighborhood. Car bumpers.  Key chains. Todd Starnes: A North Carolina pastor was relieved of his duties as an honorary chaplain of the state house of representatives after he closed a prayer by invoking the name of Jesus. “I got fired,” said Ron Baity, pastor of Berean Baptist | Read More »

    Never Underestimate the Motivation of Extremely P-O’d Americans

    Hey Washington, can you hear us now? First up, Jeff Kuhner of the WaTimes, with strong words that I stand behind 100%. The Slaughter Solution is a dagger aimed at the heart of our system of checks and balances. It would enable the Democrats to establish an ominous precedent: The lawmaking process can be rigged to ensure the passage of any legislation without democratic accountability | Read More »

    The American Ides of March

    Figures Nancy Pelosi would pick today of all days to begin her ruination of America. Jennifer Rubin: In short, the cost-containment problem (otherwise we’ll bankrupt ourselves, the president once threatened) is made worse, dramatically so, by the bill. And when we add on “a range of job-killing tax hikes and controls on all Americans,” you have a truly destructive, ill-conceived piece of legislation. If members | Read More »

    Thanks Erick & RedState

    Thank for such a well-run Blogger’s Lounge at CPAC.  You’ve raised the bar so high, I doubt anybody else can top it! Great job!  Can’t wait to see what’s in store for next year.

    Where’s That Groundhog When You Need Him

    Had a great post rattling around in my head for Groundhog Day all day yesterday, but lost it. Maybe it will come back around again, like in the movie. I’d like to get it back, like this entire last year, the income I’ve personally lost through mandated furloughs, the equity in my home that has evaporated, the hope of sending our son to the college | Read More »
