I am no longer referring to Obama as Senator Obama. John McCain hit the nail on the head when he called him Senator Government. I want a T-shirt that says Senator Government on it and a slash through it. Then a caption like “Let’s not spread the wealth around”.
OK, America—Who are You Really Mad at?
Jay Cost wrote in an excellent column that John McCain is a victim of the mortgage crisis. I believe that Cost is right, because the night before the mortgage crisis hit, Senator McCain was beating Senator Obama by an average of 3-5 points in the polls. What I can deduce from those previous polls is that when people originally compared McCain to Obama—pre-mortgage crisis—the majority | Read More »

ACORN Inst. needs your ‘charitable’ contribution
My congressman will be hearing about this today. Will yours? With ACORN voter fraud investigations in the offing, coast-to-coast, I find it rather apalling that it’s “Institute” is an authorized CFC charity. This only helps ACORN raise money at one end of its (purposely) confusing enterprise, to promote it’s registration and sub-prime mortgage relief (bailout) efforts at the other end. Donate to ACORN Institute ACORN | Read More »
College homework. I require some redstate assistance.
My most recent government class (Senior level under-grad class) this past Thursday we were discussing the evolution of presidential powers this past century. I won’t go in to too much detail, but once we got on the topic of Bush, as you can imagine ears perked, faces went rigid, and the smile on my teacher’s face stretched an extra three inches as she beemed with | Read More »
Let’s cut the B.S. on the bailout. The proposed government bailout is based on two government promises of maybe: 1) The taxpayer might recover some of the 700 billion someday; 2) Once banks bad debt is purchased with taxpayer money, the banks might loan some of it back to the people who paid the banks’ debt in the first place. Read the complete article, Bailout | Read More »
How about a REDSTATE ROUNDTABLE on the bailout and credit crisis
It’s not so much that I think the RedState Directors have a better knowledge than the rest of us on this issue but that they seem to be the only ones who can access the RedState servers consistently and reliably enough to make detailed and cogent arguments in support of their disparate opinions. Besides, in fairness to all of them, they have all made very | Read More »
Now that you bring it up
John McCain has a 88% rating from Council for Citizens Against Government Waste, while Barack Obama limps to a paltry 18%. Nancy Pelosi beats Obama with an embarassing 14%. Clinton & Biden got zero ratings! It’s a wonder these folks keep getting re-elected. Take a look at the voting records. This is what McCain must hammer home! The US must stop spending or we will | Read More »
Barry’s Going to Make Government Cool Again
Does this mean that Barry is going to hand out Che Guevara t-shirts at his campaign rallies? Cool is obviously not synonymous with intelligence e.g. Matt Damon, but then again Barry doesn’t even know how many states there are and he has a chance of becoming president. Maybe government will be cool again (when was government ever cool?) but I sure hope not. I think | Read More »
McCain Vs. the Vietnamese
I read a very interesting article in the WSJ today describing the former captors of John McCain and their support for his assent to the presidency. He fought the Vietnamese up front and personal from a cell. He suffered physically and mentally at the hands of the then enemy but was an early supporter of normalization with our former foes. McCain played a crucial role | Read More »
After The McCain Win, What Next?
John McCain is virtually guaranteed to win. But is he guaranteed to make a lasting and significant contribution to the conservative cause?
McCain vs Obama: Part I – The Promise of America
With all said and done and the rhetoric being ratcheted up, I thought it would be a good idea to compare both Presidential nomination acceptance speeches side by side. To see what each man said during his speech. I took both men’s speeches, analyzed the content and broke them down into six parts: The Promise of America, Today’s Challenges Facing Americans, Leadership Experience, Their Promise | Read More »

How To Cure The Economy’s Common Cold
It seems our respective presidential candidates miss the most important message about the economy: The people for which it serves. Obama offers quasi-socialist policy; bleed the rich to support the poor and middle class, it’s a classic and failed Democratic answer. McCain suffers from tax cut tourette syndrome, sure it’s a fine remedy but it only eases the pain before death. You have to go | Read More »
There are no illegals
The recent killing of three members of the Bologna family in San Francisco, allegedly by an illegal Salvadoran immigrant who had been shielded from deportation on at least one occasion has now become the tarnished example of what happens when cities choose not to enforce the law: Law abiding citizens pay the price. Here’s some background, and some thoughts. http://newt.org/tabid/193/articleType/ArticleView/articleId/3605/Default.aspx “As Newt notes in the | Read More »
Economics and Government
Wonder what the unionized labor of the State Michigan Government thinks of the anouncement yesterday by Govenor Granholm. She stated she is proposing taking from the state pensions to stimulate economic growth in the Detroit area. Will that make the democratic union leadership take notice. Oh that’s right they want to take away secret ballots so your quess is as good as mine.
Police Departments and SUV’s
Driving around the suburbs of New York City gas is very expensive, the price of gas at 4.25 a gallon doesn’t catch many New Yorkers eyes as it would say in Maryland or North Carolina.( where on a recent vacation I saw gas as cheap as 3.62) The high prices are starting to have an affect on how people view driving. For example my mom | Read More »
