    Spending Limit Amendment

    Today, Reps. Pence and Hensarling, proposed an Amendment that would limit the amount of money the government spends to 20% of the GDP.   This will ensure that the government will not pile onto the enormous debt we have already.    This is a common sense solution to the problem of the ever increasing spending spree that CONgress critters and politicians in general like to do when in | Read More »

    Alternative to Obamacare

    While I was at CPAC, RedState and the people of CPAC had some Congress critters and other speakers come by to give a little Q&A in the Blogger’s Lounge and made themselves available for interviews. When Congressman Steve King came by Blogger’s Row, Skye had the chance to interview him, while I played cameraman. There was a lot of commotion in the hallway during the | Read More »


    Promoted by Jeff. I was one of the many credentialed bloggers for this year’s CPAC, and I want to thank the people at RedState for making it one of the best political events I have attended, especially for bloggers.   We had many great people come by and speak to us and were available for interviews.  With past events, bloggers were put into a corner and | Read More »


    RIP John Murtha

    John Murtha has died due to complications from gallbaldder surgery. I was never a fan of his pork spending and sweet deals for local military contractors, but I never wanted him out of office this way.

    Brown won, now what???

    I decided to put off doing a post on what the victory of Brown.   As I expected many people have misunderstood what this will mean.    This has put a big monkey wrench onto Obama and the Democrats agenda. This was not just about Health Care or local issues.  This was a repudiation of the Democrats arrogance and the policies of Obama.   The worst thing that | Read More »

    Manbearpig has been exaggerated

    Tonight on KUSI, there will be a special about Global Warming (Manbearpig). It was inspired by the leak of the CRU emails and files that have shown that much of what we have heard from the so-called Climate experts has been manipulated and for the most part totally wrong. In the famous Hockey Stick graph, they leave out many well documented Climate changes that show | Read More »

    Out with 2009 and in with 2010

    Since it is getting close to the end of the year and we are going to be having a very interesting year for elections, I thought I would do a review post about 2009 and a look at maybe what’s ahead for 2010. And bare with my ramblings, but I am going to do this off the cuff. We started the year off in a | Read More »


    Slaying Leviathan

    First off, I got this book free from the Publishing Company because am friends with Leslie ever since I met her at the Chicago Samsphere a few years ago. And also I will not get anything if anyone buys this book. Slaying Leviathan: The Moral Case for Ta Reform is a book that I think every American should read. It takes you on a journey | Read More »

    Manbearpig Explained
