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.

“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 »
Politico: D.C. Doing great during recession.
I’d just like to make that clear. When Politico is writing things like: The rest of the country has a new reason to hate the inside-the-Beltway crowd: Our economy is better than yours. At 6.2 percent, the unemployment rate in the D.C. metro region is lower than in any other major metropolitan area in the country — and far below the 9.5 percent national average. | Read More »

I guess Obama knows about the Tea Parties *now*.
[UPDATE] “Say what you will about George W. Bush, he had a skin whose thickness wasn’t measured in Planck lengths.” I really wish that I had written that. Because he’s sounding just a little bit self-conscious on the subject: Obama targets tea bags at town hall At his 100th-day town hall meeting in St. Louis Wednesday, President Barack Obama took direct aim at the anti-tax | Read More »
The GOP Should Keep the DC Voucher Program Going
One of our correspondents sent a link to this post on the DC voucher program with a very brilliant idea: if the Republican Party is serious about doing something to reach out to the black community by making a gesture on behalf of the 1,700 minority kids Obama has consigned to the worst public schools in America, they’d spearhead an effort to revive the DC | Read More »
Some of the videos from the DC Tax Day Tea Party.
I have a bunch more, and I will be putting them up, but four and I’m bleary-eyed. They’re also mostly after the fold. This is Rebecca Wales, one of the organizers of the event, and also affiliated with Smart Girl Politics. She had a busy day.
