I just got a call from a good friend of mine. He was at the country records office getting finger printed for his CCW. He was sitting next to the clerk’s window waiting to be called. In walked a man and the following conversation took place with a county sheriff: Man – Can I speak to you a minute? Sheriff – Sure, what’s up? Man | Read More »

California craziness continues! Their environmental agency plans to ban black cars, claiming that drivers use air conditioners too much when dark-painted cars heat up from the sun. Get the details and further links here from The Heritage Foundation. Regulating the color of cars—or anything else—is the mark of an overly-intrusive government and a lessening of our freedoms. Teabags are quickly becoming the symbol of too | Read More »

The War on the Rich and Where You Stand
There’s a war going on outside no man is safe from President Obama and his czars. The White House is putting the rich on notice: “You’re days of “greed” and high rolling are over” But as they seek to tax those making 250,000 a year, one must ask: “Is 250,000 rich or upper middle class?” You know, because there’s a difference between rich and upper | Read More »

How is the government not a gang?
I know I am not the first and I am sure I will not be the last person to compare our government to the Mafia. The fact is the government offers us “protection” in the form of creating a comfortable society for us to live in. Roads are maintained, airports are set up and maintained, public schools, health care, the military keeps us safe, and | Read More »

Beg, Borrow or Steal
One of my favorite things to watch over and over on DVD is “Band of Brothers,” the HBO miniseries about Easy Company, 506th PIR, 101st Airborne Division, in World War II. My favorite episode of the series, “Crossroads,” shows the period between Operation Market Garden, the airborne assault on Holland, and the siege at Bastogne. Late in the episode, as the 101st dutifully marches into | Read More »
What does it take?
The last week has been one of consternation and frustration I suspect for many here on RedState. After seeing some spine starting to develop in Congress I kept thinking… What can we do to keep the pressure on the chosen people who represent us in DC (and in our respective states). Well, then it hit me. I hope you enjoy the following commentary on how | Read More »

Economics, Israel and Blago. Aren’t We Forgetting…?
As we have become so focused lately on the economy, the conflict in Israel and the ongoing Blagojevich scandal, we have lost sight of some other important issues facing the nation, and I wonder if that is not without design. Here are some talking points we need to keep in mind, lest the liberals in Congress and the White House distract us long enough to | Read More »
