Benghazi and Reddit
I’ve been reading the Politics /r on Reddit.com and I am amazed at redditor’s willingness to ignore the new testimony from the three ‘whistle blowers’ outlining how we could have made a military response and possibly saved lives in Libya. They even acknowledge the assault had vehicle mounted anti aircraft (a fact I cannot coroborate) and yet still cannot embrace the idea that America soil | Read More »
Cloture vote by Republicans no surprise
The democrat party, the party of ‘Spend, spend, spend’ has a willing accomplice it seems in the current crop of Senate Republicans. The Politico is reporting a cloture vote, a vote to close debate and move the bill out for a full vote, passed by a 91 to 1 majority! (which can be found HERE). Modern Republicans will not get back to limited, smaller, responsible | Read More »
The best explaination ever of why we don’t need gun control
Larry Correia posted the best explanation of why America does NOT need more gun laws. His blog can be found HERE so I’ll refrain from expounding further, but suffice to say his blog is a MUST read regardless of which side you fall on. Mr. Correia is heavily steeped in credentials to have what some have called an ‘Expert Opinion’ on these matters so I | Read More »
Chambliss breaking ranks again
I’ll make this quick and to the point. We should primary against Saxby Chambliss because when we really need him to stand up for conservative values he does not. He voted in favor of TARP (see here). I talked about his willingness to break ranks in 2010 to raise taxes then (see here). Now he is discarding his pledge to not raise taxes (see here). | Read More »
So Romney is the only guy who can beat BHO?
For all those who claimed a moderate was the way to go and Romney was the ONLY candidate in the field who could beat Obama I will now entertain your excuses for why the only guy who could beat Jimmy Carter Jr. failed to do so…………….
Your Campaign Either Thinks He’s a Felon or Doesn’t, Which is it?
Mr. Obama met with the press today and took a question about the tone and tenor of his campaign. One of the items asked about in that question was the July accusation Stephanie Cutter made about Mitt Romney and speculation that Romney might be a felon based on a document he signed. Here’s the question… As you know, your opponent recently accused you of waging | Read More »
Muslim Brotherhood has started Cruxifixions
Please, someone tell me this is not really happening in 2012. I know Conservatives have sounded the drumbeat of warning about the Muslim Brotherhood as being bad, but please someone tell me the following quote is just inflammatory designed to draw attention to the article and website… “The Copts must get out of Egypt as soon as possible – for the many millions who will | Read More »
No Media Bias? Really? Explain This Then…
I realize many of you do not wish to believe what passes for mainstream media in America has a bias, but it does; and I can offer some pretty compelling evidence to that fact. Actually I cannot take credit for this evidence. I’ll source the evidence at the end of this post. What I have is a montage that was broadcast yesterday covering ten (10) | Read More »
Aug 1 is Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day so Eat More Chicken Today
UPDATE: There is an update at the bottom of this post to a video displaying CBS’s media bias choosing not to cover Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day… Today is Chick-Fil-A appreciation day, a campaign started by Mike Huckabee and not connected with official Chick-Fil-A policy in anyway. You can like it on Facebook here or at www.isupportchickfila.com. Before you start spewing your hate-filled comments I’ll remind you | Read More »
If you use the Aurora tragedy to promote gun control you are despicable
or promote any other political agenda, I don’t care who you are. We need to be praying for the families of those involved and getting to the bottom of the shooter’s plot.
A prediction about Eric Holder and Barack Obama
Eric Holder only has to maintain his stone wall of Fast and Furious until after the election in November. Regardless of what the documents he refuses to turn over contain Holder comes out ahead. There are two possible outcomes to the election; Obama wins or Romney wins. Regardless of the outcome of the election Holder can’t loose if he does whatever Barack Obama tells him | Read More »
Are the New Axis of Evil War Games a Threat to US National Security
I am very concerned over what I am seeing occur in the middle east right now. Three events are coming together that should be on everyone’s radar. First, four nations America does not get along with are coming together for war games: China, Russia, Iran, and Syria. Next, the US is building up forces in the region. Last, border incursions are being committed from Egypt | Read More »
So, no ID to vote but I must have ID to get into the Justice Dept?
I find it totally disingenuous that our public officials believe we must show ID to do such things as simply enter a building where public officials are but we are oppressing someone if we ask them to produce that same ID in order to elect those same officials. Don’t believe me? Watch this video from Breitbart.com’s James Okeefe here.
I can’t wait for the Spring Thaw to get rid of the Snow (Olympia)
Congresswoman Snow you are not a Republican. Please stop calling yourself one and make the party switch official. In an article today on Yahoo! (found here) Senator Snow laments the Senate not working together to solve problems in this quote, “And so it becomes more divisive and I think ultimately has manifested itself in the Senate and an overall process that lends itself to dysfunction | Read More »
Drudge Sold Out to Establishment/Romney
After the debate last night I am gratified to know that at least in the spoken word our four candidates are mostly headed away from BHO and in a direction I’d rather the country go. I’m still undecided and in the ABR camp (Anybody But Romney), however, my vote can be swayed. I was on Redstate chat during the debate and hands down Newt won. | Read More »
Just as a note before tonight, Gentlemen
Someone who IS a conservative doesn’t have to convince us he is a conservative because he lives like a conservative, thinks like a conservative, and acts like a conservative. 15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. 16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? | Read More »
Not what you’ll do for me, but what you’ll do for my country?
I’m currently in the ‘Undecided’ category on the Republican primary. In the days to come here are some questions I’d like to see answers to from the respective candidates. Following those questions are some suggestions I have for each candidate. But, before I continue there is one thing I would like to see from ALL the candidates and that is their participation on this forum. | Read More »
Who are the New, New Nine?
This past weekend beginning on February 17th NASA is celebrating the 50th anniversary of John Glenn’s historic flight aboard Friendship 7 in which he became the first American to orbit the earth in space. Of the original nine Mercury astronauts only John Glenn and Scott Carpenter, also in attendance, were present along with a large number of other project personnel. The article covering the event | Read More »
And now the lighter side…
A friend of mine, Ramled, on Facebook posted a link to this video that demonstrates what monogamy and true love can do and look like. The clip isn’t long and it’s a heart warming little interlude to the day. I thought I’d toss it up here to break up all the doom and gloom of ‘my candidate can beat up your candidate’. Enjoy. 60 Plus | Read More »
Welcome to Second Place
We are now officially not the leading space agency in the world and I’d like to bid a fond farewell to the shuttles heading to static display (article found here). We are arguably second to Russia who can still get men and materiel to the International Space Station. For that matter, China is actively pursuing manned space flight as well striving to land on the | Read More »
On the Republican Primary and what is wrong with the Legislative Branch
I was asked by a friend on Facebook to post my views on two topics. The current republican presidential primary, and the problems with the legislative branch of the federal government. While these items should be treated as two separate topics I will, for the sake of the request try to cover both here. The Republican Presidential Primary I am currently, on the eve of | Read More »
Why the ‘Anybody-but-Mitt’ attitude is going to bring us….Mitt
I am firmly in the camp of ‘Anybody but Mitt’. However, my preferred candidate is not in the race so I am left squarely undecided. I am researching and listening to everyone in the field, yes everyone. I haven’t made up my mind yet, and won’t until the primary gets to Georgia. My concern is that we are all so apoplectic about NOT choosing Mitt | Read More »
Holiday Mail for Heroes
I’m probably behind the curve on this one but I figured I’d post it up anyway. The Red Cross is partnering with Pitney Bowes to send Christmas cards to US troops. I posted this first on my website (found here) and now cross posting here. The Red Cross link can be found here, and the full mailing address is below. This is NOT the Walter | Read More »
Sarah Palin for President
Drudge is running a link to an add touting a speech Sarah Palin is giving on September 3rd in Iowa (which can be heard here). That add mentions a 5013c website (found here) claiming the title of Tea Party of America. That website appears to have just gone up and feels like a candidate website just before an announcement. If it is, I’m all in, | Read More »
The GOP aren’t the ones dying on the hill
and the they’re making a mistake allowing the media to portray it that way. The idea the Republicans are the ones ‘assaulting’ anything here is laughable. The idea the Republicans are the cause of the problem here is ludicrous. The idea the Republicans are ‘getting in the way’ of the solution is dishonest on the face of it. The Democrats are the ones who’ve built | Read More »
