Reshaping the Clay
My new party. I never thought I would call myself a Republican and actually be proud. I was a believer. A follower of the old Democratic doctrine. I believed the hype; it consumed me no less. But now, as I grow in age my views have grown. From flaming liberal with no base for my outbursts and objections, to clear thinking libertarian moderate with a | Read More »
George Washington Was Right
My hero George Washington warned in his farewell address that we shouldn’t get involved in European affairs nor should we entangle ourselves in alliances with other nations. We’ve come along way since the great George Washington and in that time we’ve seen events around the world that constantly shape and mold our foreign policy. From the blunders of president Carter with Iran, to the historic | Read More »
Let’s reach across party lines!
With the veepstakes in full swing and less than two weeks to go before the conventions, talk of VP announcements for Obama and McCain dominate the airwaves. So much has been made of Republican Chuck Hagel possibly being on Obama’s shortlist, while the only non-Republican mentioned as a possible McCain running mate is Joe Lieberman. So now I challenge you to think of a Democrat | Read More »
An Open Challenge To The House Of Representatives
The Constitution requires a simple majority to be present for the House to conduct business. I have a challenge for each member of the GOP, and any Democrat who now suggests they support legislation to allow offshore drilling. Block a quorum, and do NOT return to Capitol Hill until October 2nd. You guys are still out on your 5 week vacation, and we’re all still | Read More »
Howard Dean Plays Race Card, Media Folds
**Video Below the Fold** Barack Obama has been fond of playing the race card in this campaign telling his enraptured audiences that Republicans will attack him because he’s black, even though no GOP candidate or campaign has done so to date. But, Obama is a newcomer to the racemongering game when compared to Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean. True to form, in a recent | Read More »
Kill Your Baby If You Must, It’s OK, But We’ll Hand Out Jillions If Some Of You Keep One
That appears to be the latest Obama marketing strategy for pandering to the pro-life crowd at least. Sadly, there might just be something to this grand little master-stroke from the soulless Messiah. Over the years since Roe, many of us have said that we MUST improve the options for expectant Mothers such that they wouldn’t even dream of killing their babies. From improving the adoption | Read More »
With Freedom As Our Greatest Weapon
“With liberty and justice for all” Means something right? How about this one, *”We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” * Words don’t move me, but those did. I find great truth and strength in words that | Read More »
Come Fight the Left!
As I commented in a blog yesterday, the leftist reaction to Dr. Jerome Corsi’s The Obama Nation has been absolutely hysterical. Honestly, I’ve never seen anything like it. Over at amazon, where I myself posted a review and have posted reviews with regularity for practically five years, I sat and watched them tattoo the author with over 300 negative 1 Star entries in the course | Read More »
As The Bear Rises Again, Internal Appeasers Rise With Him
I read Glen Beck’s article on his interview with Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili. Saakashvili spoke about America and our founding fathers in such a positive and proud way. Remember, Saakashvili went to Columbia and studied our dear founding fathers. But what struck me was the comments page. The obvious pro-Obama liberals bloggers who blamed Georgia for the conflict. They said things like, “Saakashvili is nothing | Read More »
CORRUPT DEM WATCH: Dead People’s Signatures Nominated IL State Senator
(h/t TeamAmerica) Illinois State Senator Terry Link (D-Lake County) is finding his campaign, and likely himself, in a bit of a bind. Having used the typical Chciago Democrat logic that dead people’s pens are mightier than living people’s votes, two of Link’s nominating petition signature gatherers have been indicted by a grand jury. The issue was brought up by Link’s Dem primary opponent, but was | Read More »
Unemployment at 8.5% while MI House Dems enjoy TEN WEEKS paid vacation
Cross-posted on Right Michigan at www.RightMichigan.com. Is it just me or is it somewhere between frustrating and infuriating to read headlines this morning that trumpet: Michigan’s jobless rate remains 8.5% for third-straight month?! Weren’t we just down this road last month? And the month before that? Well, yes, yes we were. And alas, here we are again. The Associated Press provides a little context: Michigan | Read More »
Obama Lied About Vote Against Live-Birth Abortion Ban, Media Mum
Jill Stanek has done yeoman’s work on uncovering the fact that Barack Obama and his surrogates have been outright lying about Obama’s constant votes against the Live-Birth abortion bills when he was in office in the State legislature. His claims have been a staple of Old Media reports from the beginning, but now that Stanek has revealed the truth we will have to see if | Read More »
Corporate Taxes: Democrats Have the Right Question but the Wrong Answer
Senators Byron Dorgan (D-North Dakota) and Carl Levin (D-Michigan) deserve some credit for being smart enough to go to the GAO and ask a sensible question when they commissioned a recent study on why more than two thirds of foreign corporations and about half of the domestic companies doing business in the US get away with not paying corporate taxes in any given year. The | Read More »
How Desperate is Christine Gregoire?
Democrats in Washington state seem to think they’ve latched on to a big issue to bring down the gubernatorial campaign of Republican Dino Rossi: a Democratic operative keeps showing up at Rossi rallies, and recently managed to get himself escorted out of a police union hall.
Why I Really Would Vote for Exxon-McCain ’08
The Democrats are now engaged in new attack advertisements calling John McCain Exxon McCain. To be honest, I would strongly support an Exxon-McCain ’08 ticket. Wouldn’t you?
