A Second Look At The So Called Budget Deal.
No, I haven’t had an epiphany regarding our leadership. We want to trust them and we want to believe what they say. It’s just that we’ve been led down the primrose path before, so we’d have to be certifiably nuts not to be a little bit skeptical. I was listening to Larry Kudlow, who caught my attention with a different take on John Boehner and | Read More »
Excuse My Skepticism.
As a recovering Republican, I’ve seen the best the party has to offer… specifically the Reagan years which are, for the conservative, the benchmark against which we measure those who would claim the mantle. For decades this has been the party establishment’s prerogative. They picked the candidate. In all their hidebound, inarticulate, muddle-headed wisdom, time after time they picked the wrong people at just exactly | Read More »
I really like this guy… extremely articulate, crystal-clear thinking. Paul Ryan’s presentation of the Republican budget proposal was a blockbuster. It was just exactly what the Tea Party Patriots have been demanding all along. Over six trillion dollars in cuts, over the next ten years. The left is in absolute apoplexy. Paul Ryan, R-Wis, flanked by Rep. Tom McClintock, R-Calif., right, with Rep. Bill Flores, | Read More »
Calling It Like It Is… ‘Media Matters War’ May Be A Two-Edged Sword.
There may be some strategic advantage to informing your opponent that you are about to launch an all-out blitzkrieg against the principal conservative media outlets and personalities. Off hand, I can’t think of what it is. No one I know is quaking before the threat. Mind you, this is not just the usual general harassment. It’s not the usual opposition research, or the usual cacophony | Read More »
We Are A Nation In Denial.
Maybe it’s something that they’ve been slipping into the water… maybe it’s in those cross-hatched contrails we keep seeing… but that’s a conspiracy theory for another day. I hear a lot of blather about how the the Tea Party Patriot movement has fired its bolt and may now retire to the obscurity that the lame stream media has been working so diligently to convince us | Read More »
And While I Was Gone…
The world didn’t become a better place. Our absolutely dyspepsic middle eastern policy has just about everybody shaking their heads. Now, the morons want to arm the Libyan rebels so that our guys and gals over there can get our own stuff fired back at us. ‘Her Thighness’, Hillary Clinton, has been rocketing from capital to capital, braying the administration’s next change of course, change | Read More »
It’s Been A Very Long Week.
Our last article was published on Saturday, March 19. The hiatus has been due to a family emergency in which my middle son, aged 20, contracted pneumonia. Apparently, this is a particularly aggressive and somewhat antibiotic-resistant strain. It had been diagnosed the week before and he was sent home with medication. As opposed to healing he got progressively worse… culminating in a high fever and | Read More »
Rads, Rads, Nothing But Rads – Or How To Wake Up In The Morning With That Healthy Green Glow.
Fresh from their triumphal Japanese invasion, the lame stream media is confident that its nightmarish ‘news reporting’ has changed your perception of nuclear power forever. Some of that so-called journalism, or much of it, manufactured to fit the stated leftist political goal of the destruction of our ability to provide for our country’s energy needs. Do that and you’ve destroyed our economic base and our | Read More »
The Real Tragedy Of Japan And What We Should Take From It.
The Japanese people have become as fierce an ally and friend as they were an enemy. As a young Marine I studied the campaigns of the Pacific War, where American Marines and Japanese Imperial soldiers threw themselves at each other in some of the most savage battles in the history of armed conflict. I saw a couple of those islands, actually walked some of the | Read More »
My Tempestuous Teapot Boileth Over.
It has taken us two days to catch up with the comments we received from our article, ‘To Primary Or Not To Primary.’ This, more than any argument anyone can come up with, has indicated to me that the mood out there is every bit as charged as I thought it was. Reps. Jim Jordan and Tim Huelskamp said they would vote against the spending | Read More »
