First off, it was a lousy day
Washington DC. You can judge a person by their overcoat. If you got one, you don’t have a limo. Looser. So, when a Tea Party group decides to have a rally at the foot of the Robert A Taft Memorial the participants are limited by the weather. It was cold, damp, drizzly and the ground soggy enough to turn to mud. Nobody, and I mean nobody who | Read More »
Dems + France = War. What’s up with that?
Wilson, The Great War, Liberate France Roosevelt, World War 2, Liberate France Truman, Vietnam, Support French Interests (1950′s) Johnson. Vietnam, Support former French colonists (1960′s) Obama, Libya, France requests protection for former French administered colonists. Maybe that is why I think the politics around this war of intervention stinks like the politics of war in Vietnam. Maybe it is because even Obama realizes cuts to | Read More »
GOP What does is stand for?
We elected GOP candidates because we thought they stood for the same things we do. On the Hugh Hewitt radio program representative Jack Kingston makes Arlen Specter noises, excusing away the CR that does nothing. Jackson tries to put out a bunch of BS about how they have a strategy. The strategy is they aren’t going to do anything until fiscal year 2012. We sent | Read More »
Spendthrift Republicans, still not the right change
The vote yesterday on H.J 48 proved the Nancy Pelosi is a great political leader. I do not like her politics but she makes the speaker of the house, and all the leaders of the Republican party look like a bunch of juveniles. She is leading them like silly school boys into a trap that will guarantee that the speaker’s gavel will return to a | Read More »
Will Legacy Republicans vote for ObamaCare?
Representatives Michele Bachmann and Steve King published a copy of a letter on RedState demanding that automatically appropriated funding for ObamaCare be cut off as a condition of the CR. I support this. Every Republican should support it too, because if you vote for a bill that permits ObamaCare spending you are voting for ObamaCare. This is critical. Come election time you will get your | Read More »
Hung up on Legacy issues
How important is eliminating the funding for Planned Parenthood? From the calls by conservatives you would think that this is a budget buster. The question here is can legacy Republicans in leadership be trusted to run the country any better than the Democrats. Or do they simply want to run it off the rails in a different direction? Last month, February 2011, the US set a | Read More »
Calling for all governors to ban mandatory union participation
The Legislators of Wisconsin decided to channel Reagan, and deal with the trouble makers. The protestors storming the capital are nothing more than a a bunch thugs attempting to use violence and terror to achieve what they can’t get through legitimate means. It shows that government union affiliated employees should not be trusted with our money, our safety and especially with our children. But it | Read More »
Get the story straight: SPENDING CUTS – Change America Wants!
There is no budget. The Democrats who controlled congress wrote laws that never had broad based consent. They passed these laws in nefarious ways, using a combination of strong arm tactics, out right bribes and middle of the night shenanigans. They are immensely unpopular and expensive. But the Democrats, being ever immature and irrational never passed a budget. A continuing resolution is coming up soon. | Read More »
Paranoia or why the TSA union deal bothers me.
A while back, before Barack Obama became POTUS, he suggested that America would be better off if they had a national police force equiped, funded and trained like the American Military. What a hoot! Candidate Obama said explained it was about reducing crime and being safe on the streets. Then the TSA starts getting agressive. They are aggresive in air ports. They are getting agressive | Read More »
Dred Scott within the mainstream of judicial opinion once too!
I cannot believe that President Obama of all people would be so tone deaf as to allow the official response posted by Stephanie Cutter. The quote below comes from an official White House blog post: Today, a judge in Florida issued a decision in a case filed by 25 Republican Attorneys General and Governors striking down the Affordable Care Act. This ruling is well out | Read More »
