    New Oklahoma Bill Would Require Daily Pledge of Allegiance in Elementary Schools

    Republican State Senator Rob Standridge of Norman has introduced a bill for consideration in 2014 that would require the daily recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance in all elementary schools in Oklahoma, as well as every school own and display the US flag. I am old enough to remember saying the Pledge every day from the time I was in either kindergarten or first grade | Read More »

    Dear Republican Candidate:

    I don’t know who you are or what office you are running for. I don’t know if you are male or female or which part of the country you hail from. There are a few things I do know, however, and you would be wise to take heed. You must be courageous and brave. You must not cower in the face of criticism or outright | Read More »

    Sen. Tom Coburn’s response to me RE: Taking a public stand, voting for cloture, et cetera.

    I wrote Sen. Coburn last week to say how disappointed I am in him in view of the fact he did not support Sen. Ted Cruz’s and Sen. Mike Lee’s efforts in the senate – efforts that very few people believed would work, but applauded just the same for the awesome effort made on our behalf.  I told Sen. Coburn that just because he knew | Read More »

    1-800-3(F) 8(U) 2(C) 5(K) 9(Y) 6(O)

    EE and Mods – I want to apologize up front for the language. I couldn’t figure out a way to hide what it spells and have it make sense.  Apparently, the actual number is 1-800-318-2596. Because there is no letter assigned to the #1 on a telephone keypad, if you remove the #1 from the phone number, you get the above as reported by Duane | Read More »

    Jeb Bush has cooked his own goose

    I saw this tidbit over at Breitbart (hat tip Dr. Susan Berry). Tonight, Jeb Bush will award Hillary Clinton the Liberty Medal from the National Constitution Center. Says Jeb “Former Secretary Clinton has dedicated her life to serving and engaging people across the world in democracy. These efforts as a citizen, an activist and a leader have earned Secretary Clinton this year’s Liberty Medal.” Bush | Read More »

    Prayer Request for Oklahoma

    Many of you may be aware of the devastating tornadoes that ripped through Oklahoma yesterday and today. As of this time, approximately 40 people have lost their lives and unfortunately that number will be rising. I know that there are hundreds of good Redstaters who are members of faith communities. If you are a member of a prayer chain, I would like to ask that | Read More »

    EE – I hope you don’t mind…

    I’ve just nominated you for a Breitbart award. I’d like to encourage others to do the same for Erick and/or anyone else you believe worthy of that distinction. Here’s what I wrote. “In 2004, a blog called was conceived by conservatives for conservatives to promote the conservative message and educate those in the grassroots movement. Erick Erickson volunteered his services not long afterward and | Read More »

    The Difference Between Us and Dem

    There is a fundamental difference between Conservatives and Liberals, one that will never be resolved. No one on either side will ever truly understand the other because of this difference. The Liberal rules from the heart and Conservatives rule from the head. Liberals use emotion to ramp up whatever audience is their target into a frenzy of feelings. They do it with everything. Think how | Read More »

    Lesson Learned (?) and an Invitation

    It has sometimes been said we elect the president we deserve. It has also been said we elect the president we need for the times. I’m not too sure how this applies when half of the country is diametrically opposed to the other half. Perhaps those who have said this were on the victorious side! I must admit that I totally agree with what EE | Read More »

    The Stuff Nightmares Are Made Of

    I rented Occupy Unmasked. Yikes, it’s scary to have your doubts confirmed and proven to be true, but more so when it turns out your doubts were just the tip of the proverbial iceberg. If you haven’t seen it, I highly recommend you do and then give thanks for Andrew Breitbart. It’s unnerving to see how easily the Progressive/Liberal left can organize and use the | Read More »
