Tennessee (post em if U got em)
Here is the Tn Secretary of State’s website where you can peek at SOME early vote totals. Just a few counties offered up their early vote totals. http://tnsos.org/elections/Results1/20100805Reports.php If you’ve got a good site post it.
Accusations abound that Dems have “tampered with Tea Party” in 4 states.
“The accusations range from helping tea party activists circulate candidate petition sheets to underwriting the creation of official Tea Parties, which then put forth slates of candidates that local conservatives accuse of being rife with Democratic plants. ” That’s a quote from a Politico story concerning more than 6 races in 4 states; MI, FL, NJ, PA. These are not the typical “he stole my | Read More »
We need a win for Dr. Dan today.
Every few weeks we get a Cinderella story and today it unfolds in Michigan, one of three states holding primaries. I’m not going to get into the Kansas or Missouri races but in Michigan Dr. Dan Benishek is on the ballot to take the place of Bart Stupak. This is one candidate who really deserves a seat in Washington. He’s genuine and a true conservative. | Read More »
All eyes on Arizona today
Tomorrow, citizens in Arizona could wake up to a brand new law helping them regain control of their state. At midnight tonight, SB 1070 is set to take effect…unless Judge Susan Bolton grants an injunction stopping the whole thing in its tracks. Which could happen today. So today is a very exciting day for those of us who have the illegal immigration at, or near, | Read More »

I’m wanting to go with Ron Ramsey, although I know Zach Wamp has some followers out there. Not a fan of Haslam unless someone can give me a real good reason why I should stick out my | Read More »
For Those Who Haven’t Seen Racism Up Close
Boy, I really didn’t want to go this route, but…. Back in the 90′s the KKK decided it was going to march in my small town, the “supposed” birthplace of the KKK. (I know you all are good googlers so let’s leave it at that without mentioning names, please. )Since the first march we have been visited every couple of years by either the KKK, | Read More »
California v Arizona
It reads better like this: What does California have that Arizona doesn’t? Or maybe, California v Arizona v States Rights. California turned up its nose several years ago against drug enforcement laws. Specifically, the use of medical marijuana. But several other states have their own laws, which involve decriminalizing the use of non-medical pot. Over the years its become acceptable. Personal consumption might range from | Read More »
McCain – Hayworth – Deakin debate–Well??
I realize McCain has a sizable lead, however I’m just curious to see how many people here watched the debate and what were the general thoughts. Who did it help? Did it hurt anybody? Will another debate really change any opinions. I’ve read a few pundits here and there on the net today but I was hoping to get more from actual voting people. The | Read More »
Bachmann files for a Tea Party Caucus
Some caucuses have enough clout to really do some good. Lets hope Bachmann’s will. From the Star-Tribune we get that the paperwork was filed yesterday to form a “House Tea Party Caucus ” and its job will be: “to promote Americans’ call for fiscal responsibility, adherence to the Constitution, and limited government.” She says this new caucus will “present Democrats with a new counterforce.” Ok, | Read More »
