The Mockery Report
So, apparently Stephen Colbert went to speak before a Congressional hearing on farm workers and jobs, having been invited by one of the Democrats on the committee panel… and testify he did, with his shtick. Funny, right? You know, it’s one thing to be a celebrity and to use your fame to bring attention to a particular cause. Fine; I get that and don’t necessarily | Read More »
Ask me no QUESTION ? I’ll tell you NO LIE!!!
Gay is my best friend, Gay is what I am when I’m with family, friends and loved ones, Gay is what I am at a party, Gay is what I am when I’m having a good time. Gay means a lot of things what it doesn’t mean is your sexual preference, It doesn’t mean you should have special privileges, it doesn’t mean you should be | Read More »
Why Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell Is Not About the Military
No secret, I’m in the US Army and normally I leave the military related posts to the WordPress blog. But this is not just about the military. The failure of Harry Reid to get the Defense budget for 2011 past a procedural blockade succeed in holding the firewall against a massive push at social engineering by proxy. So for the rest of this blog, lets | Read More »
TN 5th District Congress Seat “Not So Safe Anymore”
This seat has a great story. Since 1875 democrats have controlled Nashville’ 5th District Congressional seat- 135 years. It is the Jackson Seat. In the center of this District is President Andrew Jackson’s home. Because of his contribution to shaping much of Early America, “Old Hickory’s” image adorns our $20 bill. Nashvillian’s have a Jackson Day celebration every year. David Hall would be the first | Read More »
Democrats, Congress and “The Midnight Judges”
In the face of the coming November elections, many issues are confronting us, as well as their possible implications. They will become obvious the closer we get to that day. On the Republican side of the isle, we have the prospects of a feckless Republican leadership that still does not “get it”. You can reference the posts out the new version of the “Contract with | Read More »
Raese vs. Manchin shows “D” is toxic
For the first time since polling in the race began, Republican businessman John Raese (R) leads Governor Joe Manchin (D) in the West Virigina Senate Race, despite Manchin’s continued popularity as governor of that state. A Public Policy Polling survey released Tuesday has Manchin behind businessman John Raese, 43 percent to 46 percent. The lead of Raese is considered within the poll’s 2.6 percent margin | Read More »
Congress… please, please adjourn this week. Then head to Texas for a tutorial.
Various reports over the last few days suggest that leaders of the congressional Democrats are considering wrapping up this session of Congress early. Please do. I often wonder – more often aloud to my friends who need some help thinking through their political convictions – if our nation’s Founders ever envisioned Congress operating like it does today. I can’t help but think they imagined people | Read More »
Strategery, or principle: Can there be a balance?
The struggle I am having right now – and no doubt many of you who think my half-pence worth a nickel – is finding the right balance, where and if compromise is acceptable and necessary. If you hadn’t figured it out, I’m talking about faith and politics; specifically, Christianity and involvement in our government and political system at any and all levels. Actually it’s a | Read More »

After the November Storm
No matter the degree of Republican success in the November elections the new conservative Senators and Representatives will face a challenge that will impact this country for years to come: Can they live up to the expectations of the people who will vote for them in droves? The progressive Obama regime has crystallized the dangers of big government intrusion, ruling class arrogance and excessive | Read More »

Crossing the “t’s” and Dotting the “i’s”
As many may be aware, New Jersey recently lost out on a potential $400 million grant under the Race to the Top program. Ten states qualified with Ohio being the tenth and New Jersey missing by three points under their scoring system. The reason New Jersey lost is that they included State education figures for the years 2010 and 2011 instead of 2008 and | Read More »

Colonel Chris Gibson (R) is challenging incumbent Scott Murphy (D) in New York’s 20th Congressional District.

Maine’s Congressional races
Nobody put Maine’s two congressional seats on the table. Sure, every once in a while they would pop up at the bottom of someone’s list of 100+ seats in play, but no one was banking on these two. They don’t show up at all in Cook’s list of 103 potentially competitive Dem seats, and NRCC’s Young Guns program doesn’t even mention the Republican candidates as | Read More »
“The bureaucratic mentality is the only constant in the universe. We’ll get a freighter.” ….
Only Bones McCoy (Star Trek for non-trekkies) could see that the Democrat Party in 2010 would pick a freighter 27-Years in MI Politics = Old Freighter to FIGHT against Dr. Dan Benishek The New Star Fleet. Americans, from sea to shining sea, have said, “Enough!” The bureaucracy of the Federal Government has overtaken our lives and destroyed the American dream for our children and grandchildren | Read More »
Loaves and Fishes Economics
If you ever want to see the Progressive thought process reach the wall that divides us, there is a simple formula. Posit that a man is worth fifty million dollars, or any amount large enough to gain attention. Then ask what that man’s income tax burden necessarily is. A Progressive/Liberal/Democrat will claim it depends upon tax rates and any other number of factors, thus the | Read More »
