Keep Sandy Adams, dump John Mica
Sandy Adams may have the most unlikely back-story for a conservative Republican Congresswoman ever. That is, if you believe the media bias about single moms and the “War on Women”, which Sandy Adams doesn’t. In fact, I’ve met more than one conservative activist, politician or regular American who grew up like Sandy Adams and became a leader in the conservative movement. Sandy joined the Air | Read More »
Mine is a small voice
I was flipping through the cable news networks looking for some details on the reports of a shooting at Fort Hood, TX. That story seems to have been a domestic dispute or something similar, not another act of terrorism. But I stopped briefly at MSNBC and caught a brief segment on “the ED show”. Ed Schultz was interviewing someone I didn’t recognize, asking (or was | Read More »
In triumph, when our cause is just
(h/t THE right scoop) I had the opportunity to attend the Douglas County (GA) Tea Party, but opted to not go. Douglas County is on the opposite side of traffic-burdened Atlanta from me, and the event started just one hour after work. Today, I found out that I should have braved I-285’s daunting traffic corridor. At the end, I’d have been treated to this:
It seems the anarchists are organizing. Wait, what? Yes, it seems that the people who supposedly want a “state or society without government or law” are very upset at the racist, homophobic, libertarian, anti-Semite, Alex Jones conspiracy theorist, Ron Paul supporting, fascist, conservative, gun freak, militia men, constitutionalist Tea Partiers.

An Open Letter to the Oxford University Press
Timothy Barton President, OUP USA Oxford University Press 198 Madison Avenue New York, NY 10016 U.S.A. Phone: 212-726-6000 Dear Mr. Barton, I am writing this letter as a formal complaint. It has come to my attention that the New Oxford American Dictionary has defined the term “teabagger” as “a person who protests President Obama’s tax policies and stimulus package, often through local demonstrations known as | Read More »
Why Stop Now? Keep the Tea Parties Alive!
With the massive success of the Tea Parties (and the predictable backlash from the liberal media), why stop now? At present, the “Tax Day Tea Party Numbers” thread (combined with my totals in the 247-250th comments this AM) has 222 sites with more than 410,000 participants. On a Wednesday. On a day when many people have to work. Could this be even bigger, even harder | Read More »
