Why Super Why is Awful
Super Why is a children’s show on PBS. It should be something I, as a parent, should love. It encourages reading, talks about letters, and discussing spelling. I don’t, though. Because it’s awful. On the show, the “Super Readers” jump into traditional fairy tale stories and try to save the day. In each instance, the creators of the show change the plot so much to | Read More »
Supremely Political: Did Roberts Pen BOTH Opinions?
Chief Justice Roberts and President Obama in January 2009.
By Matt Rooney | Cross-posted at SaveJersey.com The ObamaCare backstory gets worse all the time, Save Jerseyans. We can never really know what happened in chambers. That said, emerging anonymous accounts seem to comport with what we can plainly observe about this repugnant capitulation to unconstitutional, unrestrained big government by Chief Justice John | Read More »

The President of “No”
Sound familiar? It should, it’s been a trick of the Democrats to pin that label on Republicans for years; “The Party of NO.” I submit to you that despite media reports and observations to the contrary, that label is now firmly stuck not only to the Democrats, but President Nobama Obama as well. No Plan Obama has no budget plan, only a campaign agenda. Long | Read More »
Still wasting time talking about Steven Colbert? Let’s talk about who invited him; Zoe Lofgren (D CA-16 San Jose)
Via Brad Blakeman; Comedy Central’s Stephen Colbert appeared and “testified,” Friday before the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Immigration. The comedian appeared as an “expert” witness on the plight of migrant farm workers at the express invitation of the subcommittee’s chairwoman, Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.). His “testimony’ was an embarrassment to himself, his country, the Congress and the entire issue of immigration reform. It amounted to | Read More »
Nancy Pelosi LOVES to talk – but refuses to debate. Sensing a trend with scared Democrats here…
Interviewed on Fox News, Republican candidate for California’s 8th House District John Dennis would like to debate the incumbent Pelosi, but he can’t get a word in edgewise – because she’s afraid to face him in a public debate. Not surprising though, really, as Pelosi’s record is indefensible, and she really doesn’t want to be compared to a better candidate in public. As of this | Read More »
Moderates Get In Line Too
In 2004, conservative Congressman Pat Toomey (R) decided to challenge Republican US Senator Arlen Specter (R-PA). He ran an insurgent campaign on principles and ideas. It shocked many as Specter was a shoe-in to win reelection – but Toomey did it anyway. He eventually lost in the primary, but did the noble thing and endorsed his former opponent. As many conservative members of the party | Read More »
Time for Orin Hatch to Grow Up and Move Out
Today Sen. Orin Hatch (R-UT) was whining like a little kid about a promise Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) supposedly made in a private meeting in Hatch’s office last year. What was this promise? According to Mr. Hatch, Jason Chaffetz promised not to run against him in 2012. Even if Chaffetz did make this promise which he denies doing a year ago, Hatch should be a | Read More »
Oh yeah, Jerry Brown SURE has changed over the years…not. He’s hangin’ with Code Pink
I first saw this over at Blackfive, and it made me angry enough to spit. “Your son deserved to die in Iraq if he was stupid enough to go over there.” Those were the chilling words yelled at Gold Star mother Debbie Lee by Jodie Evans and her Code Pink gang as they were trashing a recruiting station in Berkley, CA a few years ago. | Read More »
Another “Border Skirmish” in the TEA Party War? Glenn Beck isn’t helping…
Glenn Beck has a job to do; it is to get ratings primarily but beyond that he is a valued teacher within the conservative movement who provides the information to enable you and me to educate our family and friends on what the left is doing to our country; to enable us explain who Obama really is to the Star Struck and the American Idol | Read More »
If I Were President: My Cabinet
Back on my old blog, I used to ponder from time to time, how I would round off my cabinet were I President of the United States. I’ve decided to do that again and have come up with a nice list of people I nominate to fill in my Cabinet, were I somehow to suddenly become President. I plan to give little explanation – but | Read More »
Scott Brown is STILL a Tea Party win, he’s just become “disposable” now
There’s a lot of gnashing of teeth today over Senator Scott Brown joining the ranks of joining the Democrat Underground of Snowe and Collins in supporting the Left’s “financial overhaul” bill. Snowe even spewed her usual “We Have To Do Something(c)” bs; “While not perfect, the legislation takes necessary steps to implement meaningful regulatory reforms, create strong consumer protections and restore confidence in the American | Read More »
NRA gets the message on Kagan?
It shouldn’t have taken beating the NRA over the head to get them to do the right thing on the Kagan nomination, but for some reason it did. Now the NRA comes out and says; NRA Opposes Kagan, Will Score Senators on Confirmation Vote The National Rifle Association announced Thursday it will oppose Senate confirmation of Elena Kagan’s nomination to the Supreme Court and plans | Read More »
WHAT TERMS THE CIRCA TWENTY BILLION DOLLAR SHAKE DOWN?
In the “Harrison Ford version” of the movie, Sabrina, Mother Larrabee observes a veiled threat from a family friend and sometimes business partner. How did the apparent extortionists veil their shake down of BP? They couldn’t very well say, “Give us five billion more and we won’t behead your children.” How would blackmailers imply, “Ten billion and we won’t hang your wife?” After prolonged and | Read More »
See Ya, Bob!
I’m speaking of course, of Congressman Bob Etheridge, the Democrat from North Carolina. Funny, his credentials can actually be abbreviated as “DNC.” As you know by now, Etheridge assaulted a college kid, yet the DNC and some liberal media outlets are blaming Andrew Breitbart for breaking the story. Bottom line? Bob Etheridge assaulted someone and he needs to step down. Bob Etheridge’s legislative record can | Read More »
Not all “Immigrants” think Arizona was wrong with passage of SB1070
Via Garret Lewis Again, I stress legal immigration. Come to this country and contribute. Come to this country legally. The left wants to make this about race (as usual) when it doesn’t matter what country you’re from or what race you are. It shouldn’t matter. Wasn’t that one of the ideas set forth in Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream” speech? I have a | Read More »
