WASHINGTON — Bipartisan opposition is emerging in the Senate to a plan by House lawmakers to spend $550 million for additional passenger jets for senior government officials.

‘Punkin’ the Birthers: Priceless’
OK, so I’ve been critical of Birthers posts, and here I am posting one, so Pot calling Kettle Black…guilty as charged. But this is a slightly different news item, one that is sure to make some RS Birthers heads spin and maybe even explode. This is just sad…very sad news. “It’s looking more and more like the forged “Kenyan birth certificate” released by Orly Taitz | Read More »
Common sense starting to break out?
I realize that CA is the land of “Fruits and Nuts”, but sometimes common sense does tend to break out. Call me a cynic, but this move is being driven by the coming budget crunch in California, and a realization that housing criminal illegal aliens is a really stupid way to spend money when there’s not a lot to go around. From the uber Liberal | Read More »
Do as we say…or else
If there was any question at all that Obama and the Democrats in power now were bought and paid for by Union dollars, today’s news from California out to clear that up. The Obama administration threatens to rescind billions in stimulus money if Gov. Schwarzenegger and lawmakers do not restore wage cuts to unionized home healthcare workers. LA Times I have no sympathy for the | Read More »
Stupid is as Stupid does
Why are people fed up with Republicans, ask Senator Mike Enzi R Wyoming why he’s set to co-sponsor this piece of garbage. Report: Congress Set to End Tax-Free Online Shopping From Fox news For the past decade and a half, most Internet shoppers haven’t been forced to pay sales tax while buying goods online. But now, according to CNet News, an alliance of “brick-and-mortar” retailers | Read More »

Michael Steele on Fox News Sunday
I just caught the last ¾ of Michael Steele’s appearance on FOX News Sunday and there is only one word to express my reaction “GREAT”. While I’m not going to do a full in-depth review, my takeaways were: #1 This guy can think on his feet. When Chris Wallace tried to push Steele into a corner over the real differences in the R brand over | Read More »
Wall Street Journal nails it!
Today’s a WS Journal editorial breaks apart the myth of "95 Percent of Americans" get a tax break. The link is here. The money quote is the very last paragraph: Some families with an income of $40,000 could lose up to 40 cents in vanishing credits for every additional dollar earned from working overtime or taking a new job. As public policy, this is contradictory. | Read More »
McCain running against anger
Recently John McCain has been coming face to face with “Angry” Americans; I’m one of them by the way. What does this anger mean and how is McCain dealing with the anger? Badly in my estimation. First up, why are people angry? I’m personally angry because I play by the rules, I have a job, I don’t take on a lot of debt, I live | Read More »
Joe Biden thinks Nobama is running a dirty campaign!
Joe Biden…the gift that keeps giving and giving and giving. In this interview with cute little Catie of the bloodshot eye network, Senator Joe “Foot in Mouth” Biden spills the beans on the lack of class exhibited by campaign Nobama. I keep wondering when the Nobama campaign will put good old Joe on ice!
About the Dress Rehearsal next week
With the announcement of Joe Biden as VP on the Donk side, are we going to see somewhat of a dress rehearsal next week when it comes to Republican Spin misters on the talking heads shows at the Donk convention? Maybe not exactly dress rehearsals, but maybe Pre-Season lineup tryouts. I’d guess that we see the usual group of Republicans interviewed, but I also think | Read More »
Saddleback Conversation (Server Test V 1.0)
Well it’s almost time for the “conversation” from Saddleback Church, so I am posting this as an open thread. This is also going to turn into a test of RS 3.0 and the servers, hence the Server Test V 1.0 title. I hope Neil and company don’t mind and will cross their fingers as the balloon goes up and this first pseudo debate open thread. | Read More »
About that Race Card
Howard Dean, last time I check a nerdy white guy, has brought the race card back into play today. In an NPR interview on a local Maryland station Mr. Dean, chairman of the DNC, “slipped” and called the Republican party the “White Party”. Seems like the truth of the racist overtones that keep being mentioned by the MSM in regards to race in the contest | Read More »
Poor poor Hillary, done in again by the “boys”
Not to sound like I really care about Hillary, but I actually think that Hillary and her supporters should be livid over yet another Democratic male leader giving her the business. Consider for a second: John Edwards, who had this ticking time bomb of a scandal in his closet, came in second in Iowa to Obama, and stayed in the race. If Edwards was not | Read More »
This election just jumped the shark
A rather short diary, but hey it’s a video one, so… This election has now as they say, “Jumped the Shark” (Google it if you don’t know that one). In some ways, this is pretty funny. See Paris Hilton Responds to McCain Ad and more funny videos on FunnyOrDie.com See more funny videos at Funny or Die
