Wanted; a Commander in Chief
Sorely missing our previous one about now As a military person, there’s a hole in my heart where a President used to be. I didn’t agree with George W. Bush politically all the time (enough to vote for him twice), but one thing I did agree with; he did his best for his troops. Make the argument, if you will, that troops in Iraq were | Read More »
One Final Duty?
Where do you go with this? h/t to Amy who is righteously outraged… You’ve stormed the beaches of Normandy. You saw guys you went to Boot Camp with, been through Basic Infantry School with. Ate chow, pulled them out of the dumps when they got “the letter” from their girl, saw them mowed down when the ramp dropped on the Higgins boats before they even | Read More »
“DEMS PLAN TO GO IT ALONE ON HEALTHCARE” on Drudge; this is news?
Today, the “scoop” on Drudge is; “NYT: DEMS PLAN TO GO IT ALONE ON HEATHCARE… DEVELOPING…” This isn’t exactly news though, is it? From June 22, 2009 CNBC; Democrats May Go It Alone on Healthcare Overhaul A key Democrat, New York Sen. Chuck Schumer, said this option now seems even more of a necessity in view of unsuccessful behind-the-scenes attempts to get a deal with | Read More »
Fighting Against Hatred
My Own (Note This I started to write months ago. I took a break, hoping I’d feel differently.) It hardly seems possible, January 20th was just a couple of months ago, and it seems like a lifetime already. I feel like I’ve aged five years in a little over two months. So much has happened so fast, and I can’t fathom sometimes the implications of | Read More »
California Democrat state Senator Steinberg REALLY needs a vacation
Poor lil’ feller Well, after another marathon overnight session the California state legislature has another budget ready for Gov. Schwarzenegger’s signature. See y’all in another six months, right? In the hallways outside the chambers, union hack’s and business leader’s lobbyists tried to make deals with Democrats and Republicans over various tax breaks and tax increases. Republicans wanted a resumption of offshore slant drilling, Democrats wanted | Read More »
(More)Democrat weirdness in the House Intelligence Committee
Here’s more dust in your eyes Maybe it’s not dust in the eyes, but spaghetti against the wall hoping something believable will stick. First House Intelligence Committee Chairman Silvestre Reyes, D-Texas, said the CIA outright lied in one case. “These notifications have led me to conclude that this committee has been misled, has not been provided full and complete notifications, and (in at least one | Read More »
“Michael Jackson Michael Jackson Michael Jackson Michael Jackson Michael Jackson Michael Jackson…”
Bringing you all the news that’s unworthy of news “And in other news, a US soldier is missing…Oh! This appears to be last week! A US soldier is missing in Afghanistan, kidnapped by Taliban Overseas Contingents… “Oh, here’s another view of ‘Neverland Ranch’, and the crowd outside Staples Center. Look at that crowd!” I could bite a nail in two about now.
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. How long did the whole thing last? Multiply that by 5. In going through all the clips trying to find Boehner, McClintock and a few | Read More »
Yet ANOTHER reason for the California Budget Mess
From the diaries by Erick (the other one): California bashing is a nationwide hobby, and with good reason; it’s a self-inflicted mess which grows larger with every passing month. Recently the Budget Conference Committee Chairwoman Noreen Evans (D-Santa Rosa), made a statement nearing the end of the June 16th Budget Conference Committee session that floored even diehard Californians used to the spewing of the liberal | Read More »
The Political Pecking Order-If you want MY vote
There’s nothing new about personal indiscretion in politics But there’s nothing new in the following set of priorities either. God Family Country If you screw up the first two, how can we trust you with the third? Maybe I’m old fashioned and on my way out of this “new centrist” GOP, but Yeah at first I was pissed; “Here we go again, defending another idiot.” | Read More »
Interesting how the left blames Reagan for Afghanistan and the Taliban
Funny things happen when you watch CNN Saw CNN on Sunday interview Zbigniew Brzezinski in regard to the Iranian election turmoil on a show called GPS, and I couldn’t for the life of me remember what his job was with the Carter Administration. I was thinking he was Sec of State, but not sure so I looked him up. Turned out he was National Security | Read More »
Introducing the antidote to Barbara Boxer
Boxer needs no introduction, she’s the antithesis of goodness Fortunately 2010 is coming up fast, and there’s a real chance of shoving Boxer out the door; a slim one, but very real. Californians are fed up with the constant business-killing tax increases despite what some editorial pages and carefully crafted polls are saying. California as you may know requires a 2/3 majority vote to raise | Read More »
Photoshop Essay Contest
A sitting US Commander in Chief uses Deadly Force Never in the history of the United States to my knowledge has deadly force been used by a sitting US President, but when White House airspace was violated during an interview with CNBC correspondent John Harwood the incumbent took matters into his own hands. Literally. Obama first issued a clear command; “Get out of here.” which | Read More »
Obamacare sounds so…Logical
One of those nights when nothing on Obama’s health care plan sounds good, something on TV made it sound worse.
