Common Cents take on the RNC, Eastwood performance a trojan horse for Republicans connecting with Indies.
You just saw the next President. President Romney. It’s all over but the crying for the left. Wow, no wonder the Dems and propaganda media are in full hate and smear mode! What a convention! Filled with realism, opportunity, accomplished people, not affirmative action frauds. Rice-polished, solid, real, not a surprise for those that know her, but she definitely gained much credibility in the public | Read More »
Milton Friedman on health care, 1978 @ Mayo, wisdom is timeless.
Six part series that is informative and very timely to what we are dealing with today. Incredibly from 1978. Part 1 he describes a general trend of government taking over more and more over time. It’s just what unchecked government does. The first couple minutes of Part 2 describe exactly how this POS is happening. The urge to tap new funds for new programs is | Read More »
Super Tuesday Open Thread
Gingrich wins GA, called around 7pm EST. Romney in a tight race w/ Paul in VT and VA. WOW. Romney ahead in OH which is bad news for Santorum.
Finally, an adult in the room: Thomas Sowell: Gingrich’s Past, Our Future
Sowell: “Dwelling on the former speaker’s “baggage” won’t help the nation’s future.” Wow, this is a must read. It’s hard to even grab excerpts from Sowells piece since it’s so well stated. But how much weight should we give to this stuff when we are talking about the future of the nation? This is not just another election, and Barack Obama is not just another | Read More »
My take on Bloomberg Debate
Overall one of the best debates in that there was less gotcha crap and candidates had more time to make better arguments, rather than be forced into uninformative sound bites. Gingrich won, hands down. In addition, if you watch all the debates, you’ll see he rises to the top overall. People are starting to warm up to him, saying his baggage may not matter as | Read More »
Obama longs for days of “entire population…hearing one source of news”"
In a recent interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer Obama was asked about the lack of hope and change in DC and continued partisanship, he gives a couple reasons why. One reason, congressional districting was a theory he has seen proposed. The second reason, freakin chilling, was his own idea of the diversification “splintering” of the media. He longed for the days where “…the entire population | Read More »
A 3 year pivot to jobs, jobs, jobs, how ’bout a pivot to reality, Mr. President?
This will be a short diary because what else can you say after watching this video montage. The President has been jawboning for over three years about jobs, jobs, jobs, pivoting to jobs, focusing on jobs. Evidently he thinks anytime he needs to soothe America all he has to do is mention jobs. Like blowing smoke on a bee hive. Obama has nothing but smoke. | Read More »
Conservatives: Born or Made, What’s Your Story?
It’s always interesting when talking to fellow conservatives a bit about their background and how they arrived at their thinking. Was there a eureka moment when the scales dropped from your eyes? I think a little insight might reveal some common threads in how to appeal to even more people that have not truly discovered conservatism. I grew up small town/suburb middle class with a | Read More »
Trump is out.
After considerable deliberation and reflection, I have decided not to pursue the office of the Presidency. This decision does not come easily or without regret; especially when my potential candidacy continues to be validated by ranking at the top of the Republican contenders in polls across the country. I maintain the strong conviction that if I were to run, I would be able to win | Read More »
Hidden taxes and inflation from Obama’s fiscal disaster
http://www.foxnews.com/us/2011/04/19/balancing-budgets-drivers-backs/ Talk about inflation and taxation. Prices for all kinds of fines/violations/licenses/fees are skyrocketing as governments are scrambling to raise new revenue to pay for all the programs in place. This is a prime example of government only looking out for itself in the interest of self preservation, and not looking out for you. Oh yeah, “it’s for your safety!” Open wide, you are about | Read More »
Pence is out. Rahm is in. Yeah I know, shocker.
IL Supreme Court ruled 7-0 that Rahm is eligible to run for mayor, big shocker there, as they allowed his name to be on the ballot before making a decision. The ol’ it depends what your definition of “resident” means routine. The meaning is a living meaning open to interpretation depending on your political machine and influence. Chicago, enjoy your new mayor, Rahm. I pray | Read More »
Rahm BACK on ballot
CNN reported IL SC reversed and Rahm is back on the ballot.
I discovered a revolutionary simple government spending rule.
There is an easy way to separate the cream from the crap, wheat from the chaff, the pig from the Patriot. It’s as simple as asking the right questions to get at the right answers. “XYZ City or state government has threatened to shut down, or has reduced government to ESSENTIAL SERVICES such as police and fire services until budget issues can be resolved.” How | Read More »
It is better to remain in the US and be thought a fool than go to India with teleprompters and remove all doubt.
To borrow and tweak a line for Obama from Abraham Lincoln. Obama makes history, once again! Obama will make history for more than one reason during the Nov 6-9 visit. This will be the first time a teleprompter will be used in the nearly 100-feet high dome-shaped hall that has portraits of eminent national leaders adorning its walls. Indian politicians are known for making impromptu | Read More »
Soros and Ritchie strike AGAIN in MN? Governor Race
I woke up this morning happy to see that Tom Emmer closed the gap overnight on Mark Dayton in the MN Governors race. But…. Dayton – Emmer Governor race gap is about 9,000 votes. AFTER a “glitch” was found and corrected, that DOUBLED Daytons votes by 60,000 in urban Hennepin county. Whiskey Tango Foxtrot! The mistake doubled candidate vote tallies in the state’s most populous | Read More »
Mexico finally announces a border fence!
Diaz says the purpose of the wall is to prevent the passage of contraband, but admits, “It could also prevent the free passage of illegal immigrants.” They are finally getting it. Well, nnnnnnnot exactly. The fence is on their border with Guatemala! Do a news search on this “mexico fence guatemala”. I got 5 results. Not only that, but American taxpayers are paying for it. | Read More »
A telling stat of why we are where we are today.
I heard Joe DioGuardi, running against Kirsten Gillibrand, on an interview today and he pointed something out that is shockingly telling on why we are where we are today. It really got my attention and alerted me to something very wrong with our system. Joe said, If Kirsten gets elected, she will be the 57th (The Won’s fave #) Senator out of 100 that is | Read More »
You’ve now heard it all, DEMS call Comedy Central’s Stephen Colbert as expert witness on immigration
Yep, for the last 5 people in this country who don’t think this administration is a joke, here you go. It seems that Colbert is now an expert since he spent one day in NY as a vegetable picker. “He’ll talk about what he learned, why he did it and what’s important to do for farm workers,” an aide for a Democratic member of the | Read More »
MN Absentee vote counting changes
I noticed MN Sec State Mark Ritchie on local news pimping out the new absentee vote counting changes. They will no longer be counted at each precinct level, but rather at centralized locations by “special panels of election officials”. The individual precinct does not touch them. It is in the name of “accuracy”. It is reported that absentee voting is at the highest | Read More »
S.Korea under Obama’s bus? Clinton talks tough, UN style
Obama must have one heckuva bus. Like a monster truck bus to run over so many people in such a short time. You have to look pretty hard to see any news on the sinking of a S.Korean ship and death of 46 sailors. S. Korea has released information pointing right at N.Korea. Hillary even thinks it is strong evidence: U.S. Secretary of State Hillary | Read More »
Dennis Blair, National Intelligence Director resigns or thrown under the bus.
That Blair “would rather step down than continue to serve as America’s top intelligence officer is a disturbing sign of the stranglehold the Obama White House has placed on America’s intelligence agencies,” said Rep, Pete Hoekstra (R-Mich.), the top GOP member of the House intelligence panel. “Clearly, and understandably, Director Blair was frustrated by the White House’s micromanagement and sidelining of the Office of the | Read More »
Napolitano joins Holder, admits she has not read the AZ law, but “wouldn’t sign it” anyway
“> Someone pinch me, I was hoping this was just a nightmare. Is there ANYONE, one person in this administration that has any respect for the law? Any respect for actually reading something before they go and flap their gums about it? Folks, this is NOT an incompetent administration. This is a more dangerous focused administration with their eye on the prize. The ends justify | Read More »
Evil bankers must pay, pressured to bail out Obama’s Chicago ShoreBank (updated)
Update: Charlie Gasparino Fox Business News reports: Spencer Bachus, the ranking Republican on the House Financial Services Committee, wrote President Obama this morning asking for “all records of communication – including emails, phone logs and meeting records- related to the ShoreBank negotiations that exist between the Administration and representatives of ShoreBank, and executives of the banks involved in the bailout.” Chicago’s ShoreBank’s motto in their | Read More »
One of Eric Holder’s “acting stupidly” moments: Holder admits he HASN’T read the AZ law.
Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr., who has been critical of Arizona’s new immigration law, said Thursday he hasn’t yet read the law and is going by what he’s read in newspapers or seen on television. http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2010/may/13/holder-hasnt-read-ariz-law-he-criticized/ It’s been almost a month since the law was signed. The law is less than 20 pages. The law backs up existing federal law in the Alien Registration | Read More »
The can will kick back.
Not sure how much farther we can kick the can down the road. The current administration has continued the trend, if not even more vertical. Of course blaming the last administration. The spike in 33 was not even from creation of tremendous debt as it was from a rapid decline in the denominator of GDP. Look at our parabolic run in recent times, and that | Read More »
