Statesmen needed in 2012 – Politicians need not apply
All causes, thoughts, speech and courses of action have resulting effects. This is a basic natural law. It is this that has had me thinking about where we are now regarding ethics in our Federal, State and local governments. I will never claim to be a philosopher, historian or intellectual, but I have reached some conclusions over the last several months over the weakness, waffling | Read More »
MRC Video: What We Saw at the MoveOn.org D.C. Union Protest
On Saturday Feb. 26, a protest rally was thrown together by MoveOn.org and the SEIU. It just so happened that Code Pink’s Medea Benjamin and Barack Obama’s former green jobs czar and self-admitted communist Van Jones stopped by to show their support for the 14 Wisconsin State Senators who fled as well as the unions and teachers taking fake sick notes from doctors to stay | Read More »

As unemployment rises, the Dept of Labor plans all out asault on business in general
Today all the headlines are unemployment is more closely approaching 10 percent. My state and county are already there and could go beyond. Meanwhile, in the midst of Great Depression Redux, the Wall Street Journal reports that the vaunted Dept of Labor plans attacking business on two fronts, and sometimes at once: sending in OSHA to pick around the edges of safety and make sure | Read More »
If you’re one of the unfortunate Americans that live in fly-over country, I have bad news for you. Our nation’s capitol is now pretty much off-limits to you. Last week I had business in Washington, D.C. and planned a few extra days to re-acquaint myself with our nation’s history. It turned out to be the week from hell. My first mistake was driving my SUV. | Read More »
Boycott DC, not AZ
So the Los Angeles City Council has voted to boycott Arizona over its new immigration law. This nauseating display of moral vanity comes on the same day the Pew Research Center reports on a new poll showing that the American people support the law by a commanding 59%-32%. Heck, Pew found that Democrats are split, with 46% opposed and 45% in support. So we have the City of | Read More »
Putting to bed that whole racial profiling deal
The absolutely worst argument I keep hearing against Arizona’s law banning illegal aliens, is that somehow it was going to be racist in its implementation. A bunch of ignorant folk seem to have this idea about those of us in the southwest who oppose illegal immigration, that we see brown-skinned folk and think illegal! I’ve been dismissing this idea since I first ran into it, | Read More »

Grahic: Omniscient Global Cooling Hits Washington D.C.
Click image to enlarge. Another of my graphics, this one in response to the record snow storm hitting Washington D.C. I wish this storm would knock some sense into the Democrats’ heads about cap and trade and global warming, but I think they’re just too stubborn to change their minds. The good news is that so long as the politicians can’t get to work, the | Read More »
Poster: Bubble World, Washington, D.C.
Independents and conservatives are going to burst the Democrat’s bubble in 2010 and 2012. The election of Scott Brown in Massachusetts is only the beginning of the end of "progressive" ideology.

Democrats resegregate DC school system.
Are you surprised? I’m not surprised. The leaders of D.C.’s school choice movement, Kevin P. Chavous (former D.C. Councilman) and Virginia Walden Ford (executive director of D.C. Parents for School Choice), today issued the following statement: “House and Senate Appropriators this week ignored the wishes of D.C.’s mayor, D.C.’s public schools chancellor, a majority of D.C.’s city council, and more than 70 percent of D.C. | Read More »
Steve Forbes’ personal letter to us and our response.
In a nutshell, calling the senator, signing petitions, holding protest rallies, tweeting outrage, blogging, reporting, etc,, i.e., NONE of what we’ve been doing has changed anything in D.C. Nor will. There is exactly ONE WAY to stop the beast in its tracks. Revolution. Find out how at www.wardesk.org

“How DARE you come to DC & do this in MY town!”
Yes, it was almost three months ago. But these words still resonate in my brain. I am a 9/12er. I travelled to DC and rallied at the Capitol. I was on my way to take a lunch break in DC between the rally at Freedom Plaza and the rally at the Capitol. A woman stopped me, who was obviously a local. She had her hands | Read More »
I was there 9/12/09!
Last week I emailed a friend from high school who one year ago had a mastectomy after a breast cancer diagnosis. I said – “We need to plan our spa trip celebration of your recovery and ‘all clear’.” She called me right away. “Actually, I know this is last minute, but I want to go to the DC Tea Party.” My husband gave me the thumbs | Read More »
Brian Baird Returns Home, to D.C., After An Interesting August Visit To Washington’s 3rd Congressional District
The Unanswered Question For Baird Remains: “What have you learned from the 3rd district’s constituents this month that will cause you to behave differently in representing them when you return to DC?” According to an article in Thursday’s edition of The Columbian, “U.S. Rep Brian Baird closed out a tumultuous congressional recess Wednesday with a final town hall meeting before a capacity crowd at | Read More »
News-Fast…You deserve a break today!
Does anyone else just feel the need to take a break from the news now and then and tune out? Some days the news makes me feel like I am in a cage with 5 tennis ball machines all firing balls at me at top speed from all angles and there’s a hole in my racket. I mean could the folks in DC just give | Read More »
