    OMG! What have they done?

    Not promoted from the diaries by anybody because we’ve promoted Aaron to the front page. Yes, yes, I know “My God, what hath thou wrought?” I’m asking myself the same thing. — Erick Come, sit by the campfire while I tell you a story. September 2000 I left the U.S. Army confident that Al Gore would be the next President of the United States of | Read More »

    45% Approval…this calls for a video tribute

    So Rasmussen Reports has the President at a 45% approval and a 53% disapproval rating after just 7 months in office. His meteoric rise to the Presidency has since began it’s return to the third rock from the Sun. Some may want to analyze these numbers and find out why he is in a free fall. Me…well I think I will just delight in this | Read More »

    ‘You had 9 months to sort out a lift’

    [via DrudgeReport] [inspired by Lori...aka SnarkandBoobs] Woman gives birth on pavement ‘after being refused ambulance” Seriously…that was a headline from the Daily Mail Online. As we all know the U.K. has a single payer health care system, similar to what President Obama, Barney Frank and many others in Congress envision for our Nation in the long term. Now I don’t want to be an alarmist so I had | Read More »

    Hey, I *heart* the NHS Women: Do You Love This?

    I’ve mentioned many times that amongst the myriad of reasons why I do NOT want “Universal” (Socialized) Health Care, and why I thought all women should not, is because: a) I don’t trust the Government with a Speculum b) I don’t want a bureaucrat deciding if my epidural is really “cost-effectively necessary” While the above were said somewhat tongue in cheek, I suppose I now | Read More »

    BREAKING: The Mob Attacks A News Crew!

    Sometimes rhetoric gets out of hand. We all know this. There is a difference between disagreeing with someone and villainizing them as Hitler 2.0. So when you paint the President as a monster causing the death of innocents, and the media as his Goebbels, are you inciting violent reaction? Sometimes, apparently so. I shot the shocking video below myself. I have not editing the foul | Read More »

    Pelosi to Disruptors: Your advocacy is very American

    So disruptions and outbursts interrupt Pelosi discussing National Security to a San Fran crowd, and not only does she encourage them, she specifically calls their disruption “very American” and claims she’s “a fan” of disruptors. You got that, mob? If you’re a SanFranLib screaming BushLied™!1!1!1!!!!!1! then you are THE BOMB. But if you are a concerned senior citizen telling Snarlin’ Arlen to stuff it you | Read More »

    OBAMA IS HITLER!!!!

    Let us, for the moment, leave aside the question of why the media suddenly doesn’t like comparing the President to Hitler. Instead, let us today address the more pressing question of why the media doesn’t like facts. If you believe Nancy Pelosi, Rep. John Dingell, little girls totally not planted at Obama town halls, and “reporters” asking Gibbs “questions” at today’s White House “briefing,” then | Read More »

    Support Independent Conservative Journalism

    Guys, this is going to be short and sweet. As a lot of you have come to understand, Redstate is not in a position to pay contributors. But I believe, and I expect most of you agree, that what we do here is important. Online activism and investigative blogging are well-paid, slick operations on the left. They have mega funding. On the right, this is | Read More »

    Tucson in Flames, National Guard Called Out, Effigies swinging!

    These folks are paid shills, very angry and obviously homicidal. H/T hotair Funny the videographer neglected to sweep that part of the mob who were wearing swastika armbands, brown shirts and jackboots. And too, there had to be some innocent counter-protesters who were viciously attacked and kicked in the nether regions (at least). I’ll not be able to get a wink of sleep tonight, worrying | Read More »

    Let’s Talk Astroturf

    So I received an email/comment this morning about a craigslist ad soliciting health care activism for money. “Activism for money,” I thought!! Was this it at last? The missing link Democrats have been searching for? Obamacare opponents turning up at town halls really are a mob? We really are nothing but a slew of paid hacks drummed up by the promise of easy cash by | Read More »

    Amidst the shouting, the left begins to shift the argument

    Rumblings from the left grow louder challenging republicans “Well, what are you offering for health care reform?” In a sense, trying to shift the argument back to the GOP being “the party of NO” while at the same time slyly goading the right into a debate over not whether government involvement is necessary or constitutional but to what degree of government overhaul is required.

    Ah jeez, Mr. President. You must think I’m a total dummy

    I totally misunderstood the purpose behind your flag@whitehouse.gov email address.  I apologize for the following content of my email. I also apologize for my friends and family sending similar emails.  We are just simple folk with whom your subtlety is lost upon.  How were we supposed to know you didn’t want pictures of our favorite flags?
