    Reclaiming the Party

    This is just embarrassing. Those were Erick’s words earlier this afternoon, and the statement is absolutely correct. The Republican Party, as it is and as it has been, is an utter embarrassment to those who vote for them. The guys up top – Boehner, McConnell (ESPECIALLY MCCONNELL), Cantor, Cornyn and the rest – listen to money, lobbyists and, strangely, Democrats, for guidance on what to | Read More »

    Georgia on my mind…

    The U.S. has been left reeling by an op-ed that appeared in the New York Times, and a lot of the focus has been on Putin’s thoughts on American exceptionalism… And I would rather disagree with a case he made on American exceptionalism, stating that the United States’ policy is “what makes America different. It’s what makes us exceptional.” It is extremely dangerous to encourage | Read More »

    “The Tea Party Needs To…”

    Look, let me clarify that I’m not trashing the Tea Party at all here. My problem is with this dependence we have on them. Conservatives like to call in to radio shows and say “The Tea Party needs to…!” or ask “Why isn’t the Tea Party doing…?” and complaining and whining and moaning left and right about the liberals and the RINOs staying in power. | Read More »

    The Idolaters’ Holy Trinity

    When Moses descended the mountain on which God gave him the Law, he saw the refugees he was leading worshiping a golden calf. It is a story directly tied to one of the Ten Commandments: You should not worship any other gods before the one, true God. The future people of Israel violated this on day one. We are human, destined to sin. It’s in | Read More »

    Mary Landrieu’s re-election now a “toss-up”

    U.S. Senator Mary Landrieu of Louisiana is suddenly in more trouble than even the Politico may realize. More than a year until the Congressional mid-term elections, and a group of Washington “political handicappers” say Senator Mary Landrieu’s chances of reelection have dropped to “pure toss-up.” Why is Senator Landrieu seen as vulnerable by the non-partisan Rothenberg Political Report? While Mary Landrieu’s hasn’t exactly been a | Read More »

    250 clergymen can be wrong

    250 clergymen can be wrong

    In the latest effort to make Jindal feel really bad about his tax swap proposal, 250 clergymen sent a letter to his office. A handful of ministers delivered the letter to the governor’s office at the State Capitol Monday morning. Jindal wants to eliminate the state’s personal income and corporate taxes in favor of increasing the state sales tax by 47 percent and taxing services such | Read More »

    National Taxpayers Union endorses Jeff Landry

    Hey, Louisiana folks. Fantastic news. With only a few days left to go, the National Taxpayers Union has endorsed Jeff Landry for U.S. Representative in District 3. “It’ll take a combination of tenacious veterans, recently-tested tax-fighters, and many energetic newcomers to get the nation’s finances back on the path to sustainability,” said National Taxpayers Union Campaign Fund (NTUCF) President Duane Parde. “Congressman Landry is an | Read More »
