“Don’t do this to me”- Sebelius
http://washington.cbslocal.com/2013/10/30/obamacar e-website-down-while-sebelius-testifies/ Rep. Cory Gardner, R-Colo., questioned Sebelius why she won’t drop her coverage for Obamacare. “I am not eligible for the exchange,” Sebelius replied. Rep. Billy Long, R-Mo., asked Sebelius if she would “commit to forego your government program to go into the exchanges like everybody else?” Asking again, “If you can, will you?’ Sebelius replied that she “will take a look at it,” | Read More »
Houston+Minneapolis demographics, 1980+2010.
This is a condensed version of yesterday’s post by me, “What would Houston look like today without illegal immigration”. I know in this twitter world we live in reading anything is painful, but I thought it important enough to cut down given we have a new immigration/amnesty bill riding on the whim of the crying man(John Boehner) to see just what to expect. I dug | Read More »
What Houston might look like today without illegal immigration.
For those who may not live in Houston or never been to Houston or haven’t been to Houston in many years, you would find over the past 30 years it has changed. Now, it is not a change so drastic that you would notice if you hadn’t lived through it; but it has changed. The question is, with an amnesty bill most likely being | Read More »
Shame is gone, former SC gov running for congress.
From the Weekly Standard: “Mark Sanford, the former governor of South Carolina, will run for the House of Representatives, sources close to Sanford confirm. He will try to win election to the seat formerly held by Tim Scott.” You may better remember the former governor better as: “In 2009, halfway through his second term as governor, reports surfaced that Sanford was missing, with staff referring | Read More »
Explaining public and private business in 6 easy steps.
We have all heard President Obama tell the country that you essentially accomplished nothing on your own(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6j8XhQfvpW8) and everything you did or the US has done has been with the help of government and it has made many furious. So, I came up with the simplest example I could to explain how government produces something and how private business produces something so that you have some way | Read More »
The US’s energy ultimate weapon, natural gas.
I’ve been a fan of natural gas for sometime, but read this article recently on the Amrican thinker and had to share it with the red staters: http://www.americanthinker.com/2012/04/cheap_natural_gas_heralds_an_energy_revolution.html; and it is now obvious to me that the US’s use of natural gas will be the decider in making putting the US atop the energy world for decades. You are free to read the article, but | Read More »
Another reason that Obamacare may lose, the 2010 SOTU speech.
Just a little review for those who may have forgotten, but in the 2010 SOTU speech, Obama called out the supreme court during the speech for a decision that “reversed a century of law to open the floodgates – including foreign corporations – to spend without limit in our elections.” Now, the counter or courts argument for being right, from here: http://blog.heritage.org/2010/01/28/the-truth-about-president-obama-and-citizens-united/ was that, “Court overturned | Read More »
Govt+state rail are the canals of the 21st century.?
I came across this site last week: EconJournalWatch – http://econjwatch.org/ at: http://econjwatch.org/articles/some-possible-consequences-of-a-us-government-default I put the excerpt supporting my subject title below, but you can read it or the article if you wish, but basically what happened is after the building of the Erie canal was such a success, a big splurge of canals were built and financed by the states which coincided with a fanancial panic | Read More »
Cain’s campaign is over ! He takes on Newt, 1 on1; Saturday.
Cain has agreed to a one on one debate with newt saturday for 90 minutes, carrid by c-span. Cain is going to be done for with the soundbytes that come from that.

Could you live with Gingrich era Spending Levels today? I think I could.
I read this article on Saturday, “Would You Accept Clinton Tax Rates If Combined With Gingrich Spending Levels?”; and thought I would pass it around in case any missed it: http://www.americanthinker.com/2011/04/would_you_accept_clinton_tax_r.html What I saw that I hadn’t heard before and thought I would pass along was this: “Consider that total Human Resource spending in 1999 — Social Security, Medicare, | Read More »
Gulf env. and local damage, its on Obama.
Now, don’t get me wrong BP is at total fault for the spill and deserves some blame for clean up and containment; but BP; nor all oil companies in the gulf put together have the resources or authority to minimize the environmental effects. Unfortunately, it does seem the White House knew in April the spill might last for a long time and they did | Read More »

So, is the Mickey Mouse train gold plated ?
As you probably know, the president was in tampa touting a high speed train that would go from tampa to Orlando. Now, I’m not going to go into where the money, 3.5 billion; would be better spent, spent at all, or if it will even be built. I’m questioning just what all else obama and the federal government are doing with that 3.5 billion | Read More »
Remiander: You cannot trust a democrat.

True cost of Obamacare
True cost of Obamacare I know many things have been written on this, but this write up was very concise for those of you who are open to the facts but do not have time to watch or keep up with every new detail. http://www.americanthinker.com/2009/11/the_true_cost_of_obamacare.html Excerpts from the article(emphasis mine): The Congressional Budget Office has estimated the 10-year (2010-2019) cost of the | Read More »
Still want govtcare?Tell your women this first.
As you know, govt. care is coming; and it is more likely inevitable. But before you accept it, gladly or not; be sure to tell your wife, girlfriend, mom, daughter, co-worker or any other woman their risk of breast cancer being fatal for them is going up: “Yesterday, a federal panel decided that self-exams and some mammograms are no longer necessary for women | Read More »
It’s 11pm ET Friday night+the House GOP is still on the floor.
Just thought i’d let you all know that the House GOP is fighting to the end. I grant you that most likely no one who hasn’t decided about health care already would be flipping over to C-span at 11pm on a friday, but I’d like to give credit to Gohmert and King for being the last ones working and doing the right thing when | Read More »
Van Jones, “transform the whole society” ?
My goal here is to put out information that might have been missed on the 3 day weekend. Agree or disagree, the following are all actual statements that deserve some statements from the white house, not a resignation at midnight of a 3 day weekend. From http://www.foxnews.com/glennbeck/index.html – Thursday, September 3 – one thing. Start watching anywhere; this is from minute 12 on: Van | Read More »
Boehner, this is how you fillibuster.
Boehner was supposedly rumored to be reading the entire 300 page cap and trade amendment that was passed at 3am friday. If he would have done that, the bill probably still passes, but the House GOP has again gone over the top to draw attention to those in the House that are mortgaging the future for political payback in many cases. Taken further, if | Read More »
