“Geronimo, Geronimo, for God and country”..That’s OK?…but FDR’s D-Day prayer isn’t
Last night, watching National Geographic’s decent documentary, “The Last Days of Bin Ladin,” I was reminded of the stirring message sent by the SEAL who took down Osama: “Geronimo, Geronimo, for God and country!” To make sure that the raid results would be disseminated as quickly and accurately as possible. the SEALS had adopted a quick radio code, wherein the use of a word beginning | Read More »
Beware the upcoming Supercommittee turkey: the deadline isn’t Nov 23rd, it’s more like this Wednesday, Nov 9th.
The deficit reduction Supercommittee is charged with reporting to Congress by Nov 23rd, and the Congress must vote on the plan, up or down, no later than Dec 23rd. Given that the two sides are deadlocked, it is likely that no agreement will be reached, or if one does occur, it will be at the last minute, after several all night committee sessions. And if this happens, | Read More »
It’s obvious: Biden leaked the story about Cain ( to keep Hillary OFF the ticket)
DC is all atwitter today about the supposed revelations concerning Herman Cain. Considerable hot air is being devoted to assessing the impact of this news on Cain’s soaring candidacy, but, not surprisingly, there’s far more inside-the Beltway speculation as to who was the source of the leak to Politico…who tipped them to the story? Obviously, the MSM is trying to point the finger(s) at Mitt | Read More »
Blast from the past: Anyone remember PIGS, PALS, and ACRS? ( a look back at the glory, and the gory days of real estate tax shelters)
There has been a great deal of discussion about the tax proposals of Cain and Perry, including several diaries here where individuals attempted to compare how they’d make out under these new tax codes. And surprisingly, many are negative about them. So it’s worthwhile to look back at the last time we pretty much stood the IRC on its head. People aren’t stupid. It’s human nature to | Read More »
A question ( mainly for VA Red Staters): Has there ever been a serious attempt to remove the one term limit for governor?
Been reading about the governor’s successes, and popularity, and the excellent prospects the GOP has in the state legislature this November. I’m curious as to how Virginians feel about limiting the governor to one term, and if there has ever been a serious discussion or effort to amend the state Constitution? And if anyone has worthwhile links to articles/discussions on the topic, it’d be appreciated.
Lord help us! Could John McCain possibly be dreaming about the 2012 GOP nomination?
I was originally going to title this diary “Could McCain seriously be thinking about running in 2012?” but that wouldn’t be accurate. It’s not that he’s running, it’s more like he’s actively positioning himself to be the default choice if the right set of circumstances were to occur. At present, there are FOUR viable GOP candidates for the nomination: Romney: I suspewct that no matter | Read More »
GOP needs its own “class warfare” agenda…the battle between public and private sector employees.
At the same time that we learn that Washington DC is now the nation’s wealthiest city, that the gap between public and private compensation rates is hige, and going, we get Reid’s insane comment that the problem we face is that public jobs are suffering, while the private sector is doing OK. So we get the usual comments from Republicans about how “out of touch” | Read More »
Is Joe Biden trying to get himself tossed off the ticket?
What can we possibly say about Joe “don’t mess with me, man” Biden? Each day his comments become more vitriolic, his rhetoric more inflammatory. Republicans are in favor of rape, and want to see children die. Yada, yada, yada….At this rate, it’s hard to imagine just what will be spewing from the mouth of the man Mark Levin once called the “dumbest person in the | Read More »
Pandering to Nevada: ALL the GOP candidates got it wrong on Yucca Mt.
At last night’s GOP debate, a question was asked about Yucca Mt, the long delayed repository for spent nuclear waste. All the candidates displayed a woeful lack of courage, failing to clearly state that it is a national imperative that Yucca Mt. be brought on-line as soon as possible. Nevadans oppose Yucca Mt. Polls have demonstrated that over and over. Those on the stage attemptd | Read More »
What. if anything, is to be learned from Herman’s Cain’s 2004 Georgia Senate primary loss?
A great deal has been written on Red State about Herman Cain, as his meteoric rise in the polls has caught most in the GOP by surprise. His story is well known to most here… humble beginnings, head of Godfather’s Pizza, his battle with cancer, and now his remarkable run for the GOP nomination. It’s often listed as somewhat of an afterthought that he lost | Read More »
