A Quarter Million People Invited Back to Test Drive Obamacare. What Could Go Wrong?
The Government has a plan to make sure the Obamacare website is up and running. Testing it while offline and under theoretical situations would be sensible but that could mean taking it offline for longer than a weekend and that would be an embarrassment. So, instead the plan is to email about 275,000 people who were unsuccessful in signing up for an account, and welcoming them | Read More »
Let’s All Focus on Abortion, And Divert Attention from Everything Else. Do it for Lindsey Graham.
I will preface by saying I am pro-life, and not in the way Wendy Davis describes it.* I say that to underscore that I appreciate this cause. A cause which Sen. Lindsey Graham of S.C. has decided now is a good a time as any to fight for. Specifically, the cause of banning late term abortions. Remember, this is the same type law which Davis filiblustered against | Read More »
Oh Rubio, Rubio – How the Mighty Have Fallen
Over at Real Clear Politics, I got a bit of a chuckle this morning. They highlight an interview Fox News’ Chris Wallace did with Sen. Marco Rubio. Mostly the discussion centers on Obamacare and there’s chatter about whether or not Rubio would go along with a shutdown again, which Rubio deftly sidesteps. But what was amusing was when Wallace asked Rubio if he supports McConnell’s reelection. __________ RUBIO: | Read More »

Hey, Peter King! Nice Way to Start off that Presidential Run.
Earlier this month New York Republican Rep Peter King announced he would be running for president. You might have missed the proclamation and the groundswell of support is not exactly spreading like wildfire. And maybe its due to the lack of media attention that he came out Thursday on MSNBC’s ”Morning Joe” and complained Ted Cruz supporters were calling his office and using ”vile, profane, obscene language.” Ok, I’ll admit cussing out | Read More »
Here’s where we should rally ’round Miley Cyrus and John McCain
Let’s get the obvious out of the way. First, few of us became Miley Cyrus fans after catching clips of her debacle on the MTV Music Awards show Sunday night. John Hayward does an excellent job of describing what she did, why it was wrong, what twerking is, and why we should care in his excellent diary Twerking towards Gomorrah.* And as long as we’re on | Read More »
The all too frequent Laughing at Seattle diary
From time to time we might dislike the city or town we live in. Heck, we may even hate it. If you find you’re having one of those days, close your eyes say, well thank goodness I don’t live in Seattle. Fox News gives us the latest reason Seattle has become a laughingstock among cities. And rest assured it has nothing to do with its climate, architecture, gorgeous | Read More »
The Spot for those who got banned today and others frustrated with Sen. Rubio’s Diary
Senator Marco Rubio penned a diary today entitled Shut Down Obamacare, Not Government. In short he outlines why it is imperative we defund Obamacare. Truly, a good cause and a good diary. No self respecting RedStater likes Obamacare, so for many he was merely preaching to the choir. Handing conservatives red meat, as it were. I’m sure it was no shock to anyone that the responses quickly delved | Read More »
Immigration to be taken up in October. “We’re going to vote on a bill to legalize people who are undocumented, ” says Ryan
Paul Ryan finally let us peek into House plans for dealing with illegal immigration. The info comes from the Journal Sentinel newspaper. He was in Wisconsin speaking to a few hundred people of mostly Hispanic origin and I don’t want to give up the author’s (Bill Glauber) whole story but here are some things you’ll find if you go over there: _________________________________ “Tentatively, October, we’re going | Read More »
Suggestion for the Site
I’m parking this here because I didn’t want to go O/T somewhere else and then realized as soon as I did, others might want to jump in with their own suggestions. Rep. Bob Goodlatte (VA-6) put up a diary today entitled “ Top 10 Concerns with the Senate Immigration Bill” http://www.redstate.com/bobgoodlatte/2013/07/25/top-10-concerns-with-the-senate-immigration-bill/ .
