Putting the cart before the horse, why a third party may evolve.
From the diaries by Erick. Well done piece! For those of you that never actually had close contact with equines the term means that if you have something to pull with, you can get something to pull. The horse provides the energy, not the cart, and first you need a source of energy. Erick Erickson takes a brave stand given the clear intent of this | Read More »
Mitch McConnell, slave to his own lust for power
Sorry folks, but when I read this I realized why so many of you expected John Roberts to do what the Imperialist Washington elite will not do, because they are addicted to their lust for power. From AP Minority leader: Odds long to undo health care law … U.S. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell says the odds are against repealing the health care law championed | Read More »
I like this SCOTUS decision….John Boehner, Mitt Romney, Michell Bachmann pay attention
First, the decision is not what I expected. But the decision has been made. For most people, especially liberals they can at least expect a mild change in the conversation over the next forty years as Roe vs Wade takes a back seat to ObamaCare debacle as the topic that makes conservatives turn boorish. No, I don’t like ObamaCare. I intend to vote in the | Read More »
So, when can I buy insurance instead of paying Social Security tax
Rambling thoughts on the SCOTUS decision regarding Obama Care. I understand the decision in the Obama Care case and of course like most I am disappointed.

Government workers unions are not private trade unions
Lets not confuse the issue. The problem is not trade unions. Yes, some trade unions make your electricity more expensive and your construction more costly. But these private sector unions must compete against other non-union companies. And even where there are no non-union companies they can only thrive if business thrives.

Take away from Wisconsin, bad news for John Boehner
While the Republicans are beating there breast and patting themselves on the back because Scott Walker won the recall, the truth is that this is not good news for the Republican chances in November. It took a coalition of Republicans, Tea Party activists, independents and even some traditionally Democrat demographics to win this battle. Was it because of the ground game? Or maybe because of | Read More »
What did Bain do? Come on Oblivious Obama, lets dance…
Give me your best shot, tell me why Bain where Romney worked is an evil corporate raider that sacrificed jobs for profit. Because you got Boxwood blood on your hands.
