Democrat Jim Moran to the US Military; Your service isn’t “public service”
This is about as disgusting as it gets. I’ve never even heard of this Moran guy, so my first impression of him is the lasting impression that my military service isn’t worth as much as Jim Moran’s public service as a leftist politician. Really?? So I guess in “charging into the breeches” of Congress, Jim Moran got to see friends killed trying to cover his | Read More »
What does it mean to be a member of the Tea Party Caucus if you vote for the Obama agenda?
Michele Bachmann’s much discussed “Tea Party Caucus” seems to be a good idea…at first. What it’s supposed to do, as written by Morrissey; Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) got approval from the House to form a Tea Party Caucus, an official and voluntary organization within Congress. The TPC will join other special-interest caucuses like the Congressional Black Caucus, the Hispanic Caucus, and the Progressive Caucus, which | 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 »
Gov. Brewer succeeds in pushing President Obama into…
Actually, it’s more than just a speech. All indications are this Thursday will be the Summer kickoff to our next political nightmare; trying to stave off yet another Amnesty package.

Meeting with Obama on Monday, labor leaders, activists, and Congressional Democrats | Read More »

Obama’s Enemies List Makes the Senate Record
Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) put on the Senate record what most of us already know; the White House is creating an “enemies list” to make anything Nixon ever did look like a list of your favorite baseball cards.

I TRIED to be nice to Ted
I honestly did On May 17, 2008, one Edward Moore “Ted” Kennedy suffered a series of seizures and was rushed from the wind farm-free Kennedy compound to (eventually) Massachusetts General Hospital where he would be diagnosed as having malignant glioma, or a cancerous brain tumor. Ok, it could happen to any of us, and many feel if we remind anyone of how we truly feel | Read More »
Cap’N Trade Follies
Hey Moe! Nyk nyk! No not that Moe. I’m currently trying to snag a copy of the House debate on Cap N Trade Tax from Friday, and so far have only been able to grab it in five minute bites.

State tax increases will steal any credit we might get Supposedly we Americans will be getting a tax cut beginning April 1.

What kind of crap is THIS?
Sorry for the language, but damn Just saw this little blurb about “The Pentagon” lifting restrictions about taking pictures of our deceased service men and women “if the families of casualties agree.” Like they’ll be asked Like they’d agree if they were Like my current CinC keeps promises?

Somebody kick the Blue Dog?
Pelosi threaten to take them to dinner? What? Prior to the House voting on the massive Porkulus bill this Friday, there were many in the Democrat Blue Dog Coalition who expressed reservations about being asked to vote for the monster without having sufficient time to read it. One of whom was Charles Melancon (D-La.), the Blue Dog Co-Chair for Communications; Democratic leaders went ahead and | Read More »
Californians ask, Where’s Our Money Gone?
Pretty obvious the state is broke; we’re over taxed, what gives? One thing is no surprise, Californians keep voting for bond propositions like tougher sentencing for criminals and healthcare for kids, all good ideas, but with no additional funding sources allocated the draw is heavy. Mercury News did an analysis that states basically California spent more than it took in. Duh. Sacramento politicians used accounting | Read More »

Pass the popcorn, if you can afford the tax on it!

From the Who is McConnell Kidding? Dept.
Himself maybe? After being backstabbed by “one of their own” in Tennessee, now the GOP is to believe they can trust a Democrat, Governor John Lynch, to “Do the honorable thing” and appoint a Republican or Independent to replace Senator Judd Gregg in New Hampshire if he takes the Obama gig as secretary of commerce? Rather than do what might further his own career by | Read More »
Arnold’s “Budget Cut” Package More Democrat Sleight of Hand
Well, it seems Governor Arnold’s “Budget Cuts” are more smoke and mirrors. Turns out the package he proposes would make ol’ Gray Davis proud; $11 billion spending cut claim calls $4.7 billion in borrowing a spending cut! The governor’s staff has pushed back over the downbeat tone of my last post on his new budget proposal. Turns out I wasn’t remotely downbeat enough. I would | Read More »

California’s Coming Fiscal Enema

Think of it, years of Democrat leadership, taxing and spending their way to the brink of an abyss, and the problems California had when they started are worse now instead of better. Any problem seen, the | Read More »
The California Nuclear Tax Option
Well it was an exciting day for watching our wallets drain in California. The state GOP held the line against out of control spending coupled with massive wished-for tax increases. The State Democrat Majority decided to not only side-step the line, but ignore its existence completely. For insight into the way the Democrats think here, check this out; “I’ve got some breaking news for ya,” | Read More »
