Is there a REAL tax revolt in the works?
The Tea Parties, other liberty groups and the Constitutional movement in general have been amazingly effective in stalling/stopping some of the progressive agenda of the Obama administration, but we are at the moment in our country’s history that may change our lives and liberties forever. (can’t believe I’m typing that) In the past few days I’ve read, and listened to, a real questioning of what | Read More »
Independence Caucus, Good Tool/Process for Congressional Candidates
One of the efforts that I recommend all conservatives check out, join, and participate in is the Independence Caucus. I do find the websites … yes there are a few companion websites to visit … a little confusing, but I have heard that they are working to steamline their sites, yay. So I’ll include links in this blog to take you to some of the | Read More »
Don’t Ask Don’t Tell My Take
I’m just gonna use the word “gay”. It’s easier, we’re all adults and know the issues and definitions. In the same way it annoys me to read “him- or herself” in manuals or text, having to slog through “homosexual or lesbian” throughout … just deal with it. At various times in my life I’ve felt more or less strongly about gay issues, and I think | Read More »
UPDATED !URGENT – State GOP comes after Tea Party groups in South Carolina
Please visit SpartanburgTeaParty.org for a GOOD resolution to this issue. I’m very proud of our Conservative leaders here in SC for their efforts. This came across my desk 2 days ago: The South Carolina Republican Party has announced the formation of the South Carolina Tea Party Republican Organization. The official announcement will be made at the Greenville County GOP Executive Committee Meeting on Monday February | Read More »
10 SC state senators vote to adjourn rather than fight for state’s rights
I would think that my state, South Carolina, would be leading the way on the “never more important than now” fight for state’s rights. And I mean FIGHT! Not follow the “let’s make deals” strategy that Mitch McConnell so tragically and erroneously thought would give conservatives a victory in stalling or defeating the health care bill. The Spartanburg Tea Party posts the contrasting statements on | Read More »
Watch live stream from Scott Brown HQ with Garrett Quinn
I’m really enjoying this live stream from Scott Brown’s HQ. I miss those accents, having lived in Boston area for 10 years. It’s an “up close and personal” that I’m finding VERY ENCOURAGING and heartening on this Sunday afternoon. BRING ON MONEY BOMB MONDAY!!
Gnashing of Teeth
Last night was one of those that I spent so frustrated and angry about how our country GOT HERE! I have in the past (before my recent awakening) gave a glance at other countries who seemed to have surrendered to crushing regimes and dictators and in my arrogance thought “Well they should have DONE something before it got to that point.” I am so ashamed | Read More »
What I was doing last New Year’s Eve
I can’t remember. Not for reasons that have anything to do with imbibing adult beverages. I’m just not a big fan of the Auld Lang Syne, let’s recap the year, top 100 list of, blah blah blah. No family parties. Usually no special celebrations. Perhaps I had stocked up on snacks and was watching a few movies that I missed during the year. OH! And | Read More »
GAH! GAH! They are TELLING us they will come aboard if only we fight harder!
One of the blogs I read daily not only for info and entertainment, but to soothe my troubled angst is Hillbuzz Those gay guys in Chicago lay it down hard. They are definitely amusing and snarky (two GOOD qualities), but they are also well informed, and best of all … PISSED AS ANYTHING! They are great writers and just put it on the line on | Read More »
What do we tell our Christmas converts?
I’ve always been a conservative, but admittedly it’s never before been a defining characteristic of how I viewed myself. It was the foundation of my decisions and thoughts, but more like a character trait, not how people defined me, such as “She’s a conservative and as such blah blah.” I was the ‘spay/neuter lady’ or ‘our editor” or even sometimes ‘his girlfriend’ or ‘DJ’s sister.’ | Read More »
