oh man, Disqus not loading in again…again…again…again
This is a short rather brief diary about one of my biggest problems with Disqus. Just 18 days before a national election I am unable to read beyond the diary as comments are for all my purposes, hidden. Disqus refuses to load. Would I like Disqus to “reload”, well hell yes. The past week I have been ill and not doing much more than catching | Read More »
Disqus – to Follow or not…
I don’t like Disqus, not at all. RedState comments now reflect more down arrows than up arrows. How in the hell did that happen? Well, we know the answer is that the Disqus folks don’t really believe in the type of privacy that we believe in at RedState. Having said that, a few days ago I decided to click on follow whenever I find someone I | Read More »
…And 3 Others
Okay enough already. It has been over a month since Ambassador Stevens “and 3 others” were murdered in a terrorist attack against our United States Embassy in Libya. A month and still the headlines are the same – “and 3 others”. Those brave former Navy Seals were Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods. Sean Smith was a Foreign Service Information Officer. Got it Mr. President and | Read More »
Seething anger…what do You do with it?
Haven’t written a diary in quite a while as it’s taken weeks to get disqus to acknowledge me and then only when I added a mrs to my emptybucket handle. Go figure, there is sometimes no rhyme or reason involved with computer glitches. I stopped commenting quite so much as I noticed a rising level of angst toward the amount of trolls wanting to spew | Read More »
Unlike Obama, Mitt can string more than 4 words together without an UH!
We are excited. We have a chance to vote for a man who showed us during the RNC Convention that he is not some auto-bot with dollar signs for eyeballs. Romney is so much more than the Left will ever admit to, when the Romney/Ryan families were all gathered at the podium I thought, at last we can have a real family back in | Read More »
Unlike Obama, Romney Can Say More Than 3 Words In A Row Without an UH!

Am Missing You…
This is a test diary, of sorts. First to see if it shows up on RS, Second to see if I can figure out where it will show up, and most importantly, Third, to say hello to all of you who up until about 5 days ago were adding to my Conservative education by leaps and bounds. Would like to express profound thanks to those | Read More »
Abortion is Plan “A” in America
We have become a society that discusses “Abortion” while the majority of women choose it as Plan A for all pregnancies. I do not buy into the current controversy regarding Senator Akin. There has to be some behind the scene reason so many GOP bigwigs have jumped on the “resign now” band wagon. I have been commenting for several weeks that many Conservatives place Abortion | Read More »
Okay here comes the smear…Yoder skinny dipping 1 year ago
Yoder (R) jumped into the Sea of Galilee naked after drinking while relaxing on a Congressional fact finding trip. While I think, what an idiot to myself, am wondering why now Politico feels the need to release this story. Does Politico really think this is somehow going to spill any paint on Romney/Ryan? Am so disgusted with the dirty tactics the Left is using this | Read More »
Just what do we believe about “Imadinnerjacket” anyway?
Article after article on the Net about Ahmadinejad spouting off about either wiping Israel off the map or some variation thereof. This is the same man that US officials identified as involved in the 1979 Iran hostage crisis that lead to Operation Eagle Claw. For those too young to remember politics from 1979-1980 please do a search on Iran Hostage Crisis and/or President Carter. I | Read More »
Call a Baby a Baby
We can look the word fetus up all over the Internet in 2012 but I’d like to enter the “wayback machine” with you to the 1950s and 60s. I was born in 1951 and was raised in what was then a very rural farming community. We were surrounded by dairy farms and all the crops needed to raise good milkers. As anyone who is, lets say, | Read More »
Why is Michael Moore voting for a man he doesn’t support??
Found At CBS DC website: Liberal stalwarts Susan Sarandon and Michael Moore said Wednesday they’re not thrilled with President Barack Obama’s performance but hope he gets four more years. “I wouldn’t say I support him. I would say I will vote for him,” Moore said during a panel discussion with fellow Oscar winner Sarandon at the Traverse City Film Festival. and more | Read More »
Well is it important? or Isn’t it.
The Democrats are thinking about adding being pro-gay marriage to their platform at the upcoming convention. Should all conservatives take a stand for marriage being between one man and one woman? I can hardly wait for all the rhetoric from both sides. The Dems who know this is not a positive for them will be spinning and spinning. The RINOS who are trying to be | Read More »
Cruz now on FoxNews talking about nasty, false ads against him, Dewhurst to
follow in the next hours. I am listening to Cruz, will tune out Dewhurst. Cruz has just said his campaign has never ran a negative character ad against Dewhurst. He is interesting and seems pretty straight forward. Hope you see this in time to go watch.
Political Conumdrum from Mr EmptyBucket…
The question is: IF president Obama manages to pull off re-election and stays as Commander-In-Chief for a second term (will be 4 incredibly long years) just who is he going to blame for everything that is wrong that he inherited from the previous 4 years – his first term in office?? Obama will not be able to choose G.W. Bush as he has been down | Read More »
has anyone read The Corruption Chronicles by Tom Fitton
president of Judicial Watch. I have visited that site a few times and just recently have started going there once a day and am not sure it is as non-partisan as it claims. The Corruption Chronicles sounds like an interesting read but not sure it would contain anything that isn’t already right here at RS. At the moment the only political reading I want to | Read More »
Have to keep our eyes on the ball…
I will be the first to admit recently I’ve allowed myself to become involved in discussions that were nothing more than a distraction from getting Romney elected in November. All done doing that, there just isn’t enough time left. Foxnews today has been talking about a change in Obama swing state ads. Apparently the talking heads feel Obama has left behind his negative, “I’m a | Read More »
Barry, baby…while none of us wish any harm whatsoever to befall on your daughters…why throw them
into the Aurora movie theater? They weren’t there. Lots of other very important people were there. There were mothers, fathers, grandmas, grandpas, uncles, aunts, nieces, nephews – each one being a very important person to someone. Three men threw themselves into harms way to protect their beloved. There are stories of courage and bravery that you’ll never understand Obama. Please, for once can you comment | Read More »
Please help a 62 year old grandma who still is naive about
some things understand how Obama continues to have an approval rating above 40%. I don’t get it, I don’t understand…are there really 40+% of Americans still supporting him. We never bought into his “hope & change” nonsense, never thought he’d drain the swamp – how could he with Reid and Pelosi still in D.C. politics, and we never, ever thought he was such an “eloquent” | Read More »
Am appalled to have just seen an Obama TShirt with
“Still a BFD” on it. What has happened to America? Just because you use anacronym in writing does not change the meaning. How crass and crude to have a President of the United States use the F word in such a manner. If you are using anacronyms representing foul language, to me it is the same thing as saying the actual word. We used to | Read More »
My dad rolled his own cigarettes during WWII and continued to do so for many years if
he were alive today I wonder what he’d have to say about these new “fangled” cigarette rolling machines. I used to watch him make his cigarette, it was fun. Of course later in life I realize that they might kill him. He had a leaky heart valve and although he lived through 2 heart stopped failures, the third one took his life at 69 before his | Read More »
We’re waiting for the “it’s Rush Limbaugh’s fault,” after all Rush did
right from the start of Obama’s presidency talk about hoping the president fails. While we do hear fewer “it’s G.W. Bush’s fault” lately, it is only a matter of time before Obama, or an operative very close to him, starts blaming Rush for Obama’s failure to get re-elected. Or Obama’s failure to raise enough cash, or whatever. What Rush really said is that he hoped Obama’s | Read More »
Groan, Ann Romney says Mitt is thinking about a woman VP…
and I’m not a happy camper. Why, oh why does it seem so many think that is an answer to winning the WH back? IMHO I can think of nothing worse than another “woman” getting crucified over the short weeks between the announcement and the actual 2012 election. The Internet has some great conservative websites getting the truth out but at this point in time | Read More »
Time to revisit 1776 – the Movie, Get the popcorn going…
With our Independence Day celebration just 2 days away, perhaps now would be a good time for many to revisit the movie adaptation of the Broadway musical comedy -1776- and the struggle in creating the United States Declaration of Independence. (imdb.com) We saw the movie for the first time a few years ago and by the end of it felt uplifted, encouraged, hopeful…and especially thankful | Read More »
Just why do taxpayers foot the bill for Valerie Jarrett?
This question has been bugging me for months. Valerie Jarrett is a long time family friend of the Obama’s that they brought to the WH. Period. Most media present her as this “who-do voodoo” woman that Michelle and Barack just can’t live without. What exactly has that got to do with the running of the United States government? Fashion consultant? Minute to minute schedule coordinator? | Read More »
