Do average people understand Joe Wurzelbacher?
Being a small business owner this subject is close to my heart and I wonder aloud if people truly understand what it means what happens. Lets face it, most people just go to work, do their job and then come home. Sure, they get taxed on their pay stub and some might even look at whats being taken from the pay stub, but do people | Read More »
Secret Service: “kill him” crowd jeer allegation unfounded.
I am all sure we read the stories in the media about someone yelling in a recent McCain – Palin rally about some knott head in the crowd yelling “kill him” as Sarah Palin was speaking about Senator Obama’s ties to bill Ayres. The Timesleader (local newspaper in Northeastern Pennsylvania) is now reporting that the Secret Service is calling that allegation “unfounded.” Agent Bill Slavoski | Read More »
Our own Omega Glory
This year’s election reminds me a lot of the Star Trek episode The Omega Glory in which Captain Kirk and his party who are stranded on a planet are offered to live in peace and protection of the government (with limited freedoms) of the Kohms – provided he provide phasers to fight off the barbaric Yangs. In the end it is discovered that the Kohms | Read More »
Obama’s “health care is a right” and “regulation of banks” remarks note marxist foundation.
For anyone who didnt catch the debate last night, Senators Barack Obama and John McCain were asked whether they believed health care was a right or a responsibility. Barack Obama responded that it (health care) was a right. I am not sure why this statement did not set off any alarms among the various talking heads off last night. To be sure, it is a | Read More »
Arena of Ideas interviews Congressman Blunt on HR 3997 and the challenges that follow
Congressman Roy Blunt heald a conference call this afteroon with local media and bloggers. In a follow up email I received the answers to several hard questions regarding the bill’s reach in government and why such a compromise bill is important to all – including us who try to live by limited government principles. The answers, as always, were to the point and informative.
Digesting the failure of HR 3997
Im going to cut straight to the chase and note a few things which should be highlighted about the failure of HR 3997. Democrats control Congress. If they wanted to do so, they could and still might pass this legislation through, complete with ACORN funding and all. The fact that Speaker Pelosi failed to do so is fairly significant. It shows her (and Obama for | Read More »
Economic crisis proves who is truly fit to lead.
My personal thoughts this morning revolve around Senator Obama’s failed ability to lead given the situation he is in. For all the talk about bringing people together and striking a bipartisan tone, Barack Obama failed miserably yesterday. The Paulson package failed miserably not because of any “stunt” pulled by John McCain or the House Republican conference, but because Democrats failed to listen.
AP: We’re above the law.
If media elites wonder many of us “common folk” take much of what we read, watch or hear with skepticism one might look no further than the actions taken by the Associated Press after the hacking of Sarah Palin’s personal email account.
So what economic philosophy is it, Senator Obama?
In the wake of Lehman’s bankruptcy and the sell off at Wallstreet today Senator Barack Obama tried to link the situation to John McCain. Obama said that he did not directly fault Senator McCain for the economic problems facing the nation, but he did blame McCain’s economic philosophy. Such a statement not only begs the question what the junior senator from Illinois meant, but it | Read More »
Goldberg pwns Washington Post in 30 seconds.
I am sure some media talking heads today want to discuss the Washington Post story which implies wrong doing on the part of Sarah Palin alledgedly charging the state of Alaska with per diem charges for staying at home. After 30 seconds of google searching, Goldberg found the Alaska Administrative Manual. Big deal, right? In reality it is.
Larry Kudlow: There’s Something Missing in St. Paul
Larry Kudlow nails it, again. As much as I love Palin’s speech Kudlow correctly points out that it failed to connect our current economic slump to rising energy costs which are as a direct result of failed Democrat policy. In fact, Democrats want higher energy prices and seek to tax our companies through cap and trade which would crush our economy.
So what about Bristol Palin?
A number of people emailed and call me about Bristol Palin today wanting to know my view about how the matter, so here it is: I would start by noting that the media at large decided to pick up the story based upon lies started from a democrat website. The implication was that the Trig, Palin’s, youngest child was in all actuality Bristol’s. Of course | Read More »
Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin on energy policy.
If anyone was paying attention to Senator Obama’s speech the other night (or interview here in Southwest Missouri) where he said they were going to spend $150 billion on “green technology” in addition to a host of other environmental programs which are to “help America break from foreign dependency.” But how?
About that Sarah Palin investigation thing…
I am sure some of us heard from various media outlets yesterday that Sarah Palin was under investigation by the Alaska state legislature, but few explained the why. Just a quote note that Palin is a relative unknown, inexperienced and under investigation. Real fair and in-depth reporting, eh?
Washington Post vote database: Barack Obama voted with party 96%.
I firmly agree with Jim Geraghty that Republicans must hammer Senator Barack Obama’s voting record while in Congress and note that he is anything but a uniter. In fact, according to the Washington Post vote database, Senator Obama voted with his party 96% of the time he was present. Compare that to John McCain’s record of voting with his party 88% of the time. The | Read More »
ABC News producer arrested taking pictures of Democrat donors, senators.
Ah yes, freedom of the press. Grand isnt it? Unless you happen to be a reporter taking pictures of “big” Democrat donors and senators meeting at a hotel in Denver during their convention. ABC News producer Asa Eslocker was arrested today outside the Brown Palace Hotel while doing investigative reporting on corperate lobbyist and political conventions.
Pelosi to protestors: “Can we drill your brains?”
Remember back in 2006 when Democrats promised bipartisanship and a “return” to an ethical Congress. You know, the same promise in which she promised dissent and openness in Washington. Exactly. Didnt happen did it? In fact under Pelosi’s watch Republicans are extremely limited in what they can do, or even say. One need to only look as far as a recent revolt in the House | Read More »
Why LeBron James and Kobe Bryant make me smile.
No, this isnt your typical post about this year’s redentition of the national basketball team dubbed “the Redeem Team” by those in the media. Nor is it a tyrade about the past and how this team can be an example for future Olympic squads. While both are true I would like to focus on a little patriotism. You heard me right, love of country. Think | Read More »
Blog may confirm political trap at Saddleback this weekend.
Since seeing the commercials on Fox News announcing a political forum at Saddleback church this Saturday, I always suspected some thing was up. Then I ran across this blog which digs a little deeper and discusses who will be “helping” Rick Warren with questions to Obama and McCain.
Will Obama flip-flop on national defense in the face of Russian aggression?
For those who havent seen or remember this little take from Obama early in the campaign, now is a really good time to remember Obama’s call for disarmament.
