Retreading Teddy: Obama in Osawatomie
Whacked from so many gigs in States he can’t remember the names of, Barack Obama’s running low on original material. Then again, Teddy Roosevelt is a tough act to follow. Nowadays, Obama infers Lincolnesque-style passion into his empty, collective agenda. Or, the other day in Osawatomie, Kansas, Obama retreaded the modus operandi and static from Roosevelt’s New Nationalism speech; one given 101 years ago in | Read More »
New Jersey Taxes
Do you know the extent of economic constriction applied by the heavy hand of taxation? One of the most discussed topics of these recent times has been the effect of heavy taxation regarding economic recovery and the belief that money spent is money recovered. I want to address this because it irks me to see such willful blindness to the economic stranglehold applied by our legislature and our federal representatives…

Conservative Joins Redstate
Hello Redstate friends. My handle is Max Venom and I am new to this site. For the past year I was a member of newsvine, up until I was attacked and banned for writing an article in opposition to gay marriage. Newsvine banned me for suggesting gay people are bigots, and refused to delete my account. My articles and history with newsvine can be | Read More »
Why Cap and Trade Policies are Detrimental
A cap and trade policy is one where the federal government places mandates on corporations that emit greenhouse gases or carbon dioxide (CO2) into our air. Corporations that emit greenhouse gases must buy permits from the government to emit acceptable levels of CO2, but are not allowed to go over the federal limit placed on CO2 emissions. First of all, I am not entirely | Read More »
Moving Away From the Religious Right
This is my first diary but one that I will be expanding on in future weeks. I would imagine reactions to this will be harsh and critical, but insight does not come from patting ourselves on the back or galloping happily down the same failed paths. It is important that we find our soul if we are to regain any of the federal branches of | Read More »
Suggested Theme (Mock-Up) for RS 4.0
I’ve been moaning and groaning about the site template (or theme) since the move from RS 2.0. Personally, I thought RS 1.0 and 2.0 templates were very good. RS 3.0? Well, it wasn’t just the CMS (I’m sure Neil would agree) that was cr*p. Let me be honest, I really, really, don’t like the RS 3.0 (and now 4.0) theme. I think it’s dull, depressing | Read More »
Bush resign now?
Gail Collins in The New York Times: “Thanksgiving is next week, and President Bush could make it a really special holiday by resigning. . . . Dick Cheney, obviously, would have to quit as well as Bush. In fact, just to be on the safe side, the vice president ought to turn in his resignation first. . . Then House Speaker Nancy Pelosi would become | Read More »

No Matter The Outcome; A Very Sad Day
I’m a healthy able bodied bachelor in my thirties. I live in Boston. I know this city like the back of my hand and I am not shy about meandering through the shady neighborhoods during the late hours of the night. There are many things I do not like about Boston, but it is my city and I am not afraid here. A group of | Read More »
Bruce Springsteen ain’t from the Jersey I saw today!
Sorry for triple-posting yesterday. Server errors kept coming up. UPDATE: Well, Joe the Payroll Clerk, a female McCain supporter and I were out on Route 130 and Route 571 (for all you Jerseyphiles) for three hours this afternoon. This is a part of Mercer County that runs near NJ Turnpike Exit 8A (hold the jokes, people) and near the Monmouth County border (Springsteen’s native county). | Read More »

Republicans… Help Yourselves
Long-time reader, first-time blogger. We can win, if we try. And get off our butts. I live in the People’s Republic of New Jersey. HEAVILY Democratic county. Two buddies and I have been going out over the past week or so with *McCain-Palin signs *stapled to wood 1″x2″s from Home Depot ($3.00 total) and going out to busy intersections at rush hours and shopping days | Read More »

Did you hear?
John Zogby this morning has issued his daily tracking poll and it shows a 10 point Obama advantage nationwide. No way! If anyone had any doubt about the accuracy of the polls — the more I hear about a 10 or 11 or 12 point lead nationwide for The One, the more I discount all polls. (I am reminded that CBS News in the days | Read More »
Fight for Western New York Republicans!
Check out the race in the 29th Congressional district in Western New York. Randy Kuhl, our Congressman, faced a tough opponent in 2006 and squeaked by with a win over uberliberal Eric M. Massa. Of course, like Freddy Krueger, some nightmares keep coming back. Massa has returned. (In fact, he never left. He’s been campaigning for the past two years. One wonders if he has | Read More »
NOW HE HAS HIS OWN FLAG??
This evening while watching the 6pm Fox News Hour with Britt Hume, a segment appeared with a screen that had OBH standing in front of 2 flags.The One behind his right shoulder was my American flag.. and the one over his LEFT shoulder was, dare I say a flag with red, white and blue background and a large circle in the middle. Now, if he | Read More »
