The Needy Get Something – The Greedy Get Nothing
The Needy Get Something – The Greedy Get Nothing This is basically the slogan of the Obama Stimulus Plan, and this is why no House Republicans voted for this bill. This is basically a choice between the philosophy of Karl Marx, and the philosophy of Adam Smith. Let’s look at some points Karl Marx made, and translate them into points made by Obama.

Quotations from Chairman Barack
There are some recent developments this month that really creep me out, and they do not receive the attention and scrutiny they deserve. One has to do with a new product, Pocket Obama, that is being sold at The History Company. When I first read this I thought it was some kind of cruel joke. Here is an excerpt – Printed in a size that | Read More »
My Fellow Citizens – and so it begins
On January 20, 2009 Barack Hussein Obama was sworn in as the 44th President of the United States of America. Following the swearing in ceremony President Obama began his inaugural address with the phrase “My fellow citizens”. Hearing this words was like hearing chalk scratching a blackboard. Every President in my lifetime has always used the phrase “my fellow Americans”, and I do believe Obama | Read More »

This is a list of photos of CongressCritters™ who have been elected to serve in the House or the Senate of their state. source I pray that these folks are rising stars in the GOP because this will smash to smithereens the narrative framed by the left about who the Republican Party represents.
Faces Of The Future GOP
There are Republican CongressCritters™ who were just elected to serve in the US Congress. None of these people have previously served as elected officials in the Nation’s Capitol. I pray that they can resist being changed by Washington DC
On This I Agree With Obama
Let’s remember that it was a man from this state who first carried the banner of the Republican Party to the White House, a party founded on the values of self-reliance and individual liberty and national unity. Those are values that we all share.
Americans Embrace Childish Unity
The title of my diary is from an excellent column, Americans Embrace Childish Unity , written by Ben Shapiro at TownHall. I especially like his concluding remarks: America has always recognized that unity for its own sake is useless at best and dangerous at worst. Unifying behind a mysterious charismatic figure promising transformational change may make us feel good, but it is a betrayal of | Read More »

Useful Idiots Fifty Years Ago
We the People have a duty as voters on Tuesday, November 4, 2008. John McCain is well known from his years of service to our country for the last 55 years. Barack Obama is not so well known.

The Coming Backlash?
The title of this diary is from a recent article by Pat Buchanan at TownHall. I am not one of Pat’s fans, especially when he writes as an apologist for Hitler’s third Reich, but he does have a sharp political mind. Pat makes the distinction in this article between Barack Obama and George McGovern. an excerpt –
Lucy, you got some ‘splainin’ to do.-Ricky Ricardo
On some positions a coward has asked the question is it safe? Expediency asks the question, is it politic? Vanity asks the question, is it popular? But conscience asks the question is it right? And there come a time when one must take a position that is neither safe nor politic nor popular but he must take it because conscience tells him it is right. | Read More »
A Conservative Phoenix from the Ashes Populist – John S. McCain
A phoenix is a mythical bird with a tail of beautiful gold and red plumage. It has a 1,000 year life-cycle, and near the end the phoenix builds itself a nest of cinnamon twigs that it then ignites; both nest and bird burn fiercely and are reduced to ashes, from which a new, young phoenix or phoenix egg arises, reborn anew to live again. The | Read More »
The Players in Paving the Way to the Wall St Meltdown
During these times of heated political election year politics agreement across the political spectrum has been achieved that the financial institutions on Wall St. are in terrible shape. The agreement that things are a mess very quickly falls apart when it is broken down into who is to blame for this mess, and what can be done to clean the mess up. The disagreement over | Read More »
Didn’t that take some hubris, Charlie?
I watched the ABC World News program on September 11th, and my initial reaction was that Governor Sarah Palin acquitted herself well in the interview, and did no harm to the McCain/Palin ticket. I also thought Charlie Gibson was the caricature of the Washington DC media elite who believe that anyone who has not achieved membership in their “ruling class aristocrat club” through appearances on | Read More »
