So, Whatever Happened to All that TARP Money?
I had no idea. Until I read this article in Rolling Stone I was buying into the fraud that the TARP program may have saved our nation. First, don’t get hung up on the obvious liberal montras that “It’s all Bush’s fault.” There is plenty of that in the article. Get beyond that however, and you will learn that Wall Street is the biggest recipient | Read More »
Social Issues Still Matter
Many on this site cannot understand the gay community. Many outside this site cannot understand the issues within the gay community. So, this diary is not written to address the issue of same-sex marriage, except that Mary Maitland said on Sunday that the issue of same sex marriage is insignificant when compared to the devastating impact of the single parent household in this country. Single | Read More »
COME ON DOWN!
I would like to take this opportunity to invite everyone in the death spiral states of California and New York to come to Florida. We have no state income tax and we have many programs to assist all you so called “greedy” successful entrepreneurs in your relocation to the Sunshine state. We have oranges, palm trees, tennis and golf, beautiful beaches, sunshine and a Republican | Read More »
Rick Santelli You Got to Love this Guy!
Rick Santelli for those who don’t know him is a commentator on the morning CNBC business news program Squawk on the Street. He is the one who termed the phrase the Tea Party when talking about protesting the big government and the high tax burdens placed on American businesses. This morning he was commenting on a WSJ op ed that brought up the hypocritical speakers | Read More »
Give Them What They Want!
I have heard and read all these comments about going off the fiscal cliff and how the Republicans should compromise. First, the fiscal cliff is not the right terminology (of course, it was created by the media). There is no cliff there are two factors: revenue and spending. The latest suggestion by our socialist president is that we should put in place the Bush tax | Read More »
Get On Board — Josh Mandel — Ohio’s Next Senator
It’s time to get on board. Everyone knows that the 2012 election is going to decide the fate of our great nation. Four more years of Obama and we will collapse into a heap of socialist malaise from which there is no recovery. All eyes have been focused on our Hope for Change in this White House Occupy Movement that has hijacked our capitalist republic. | Read More »
The Most Vulnerable
The words are thrown out there for all to hear as if it were some Oscar nominating category. “And the nominees for the most vulnerable in society are.” A Google search reveals the list. The IMF (International Monetary Fund) sets up an entire list of countries separated by continent that are the most vulnerable to economic crisis, and so, the search for the most vulnerable | Read More »

Romney will be attacked because of Bain Capital. As Rush Limbaugh said it will become the new Haliburton. Is what Romeny did at Bain wrong? No, it is the job of a CEO who has been delegated the job of reorganizing a company to cut expenses. The first cut is always in payroll. The real problem is that in this election the media has created | Read More »
What is wrong with these RNC idiots?
Apparently, it is okay to bash fellow Republicans but not the worst President this country has ever seen. Read this and weep. http://politicalwire.com/archives/2011/12/06/strategists_warn_republicans_on_attacking_obama.html#disqus_thread Who are these people that apparently are getting paid by the Republican party? It only goes to show that the tea party work is not finished. I thought that the Republican Party got the message last election to stand for conservative principals, | Read More »
Why MF Global matters.
MF Global has gone into bankruptcy because of the criminal acts of John Corzine. As a result the entire options industry is in turmoil and could fall apart. This is not a too big to fail scenario, this is just another example of croney capitalism. Croney capitalism doesn’t just take place when the govenment lends money to business at low rates that will never be | Read More »
Don’t Ask If You Don’t Know
I just find this very amusing. Contessa Brewer wanted so bad for a gotcha moment that she went to challenge Rep. Mo Brooks from AL that she challenged his economic credetials. Ooops! He graduated from Duke in three years with high honors in economics. See for yourself. (real clear politics) http://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2011/07/20/msnbc_to_gop_congressman_do_you_have_a_degree_in_economics.html
Leadership in the New Congress
The most important thing that will happen when a split congress comes together in 2011 is the selection of leadership positions. It’s easy to shift your attention from the Senate and Congressional races that just concluded to the Presidential election of 2012. Not so fast! The most important vote that the new congress will begin with is the selection of leadership positions. With Mike Pence | Read More »
George was killed the other day.
George was killed the other day. Ambushed in his front yard, standing next to the woman he loved and the boy whom he called his own. One shot to the heart. This took place not in Iraq or a tough ghetto in Detroit or even in West Palm Beach. This murder took place in Palm Beach Gardens in a quiet suburban neighborhood made up of | Read More »
Go West America!
Down here in Florida we have a congressional race that epitomizes the battle in the fight to take back America. Ron Klein is the Democrat incumbant in C.D. 22. District 22 is a sliver of land that runs from Broward County (Ft. Lauderdale) to the Palm Beach County line. Ron Klein has held this seat for four years after defeating Republicam moderate E.Clay Shaw. Shaw | Read More »
I don’t hear anyone mention Kelly Ayotte
She defeated a candidate who attempted to paint her as a liberal and tried to destroy her by distorting the truth. That’s exactly the type of candidate I can’t stand. (See Mike Castle) When Rick Scott was successful in that tactic against a true conservative Republican, I was told to shut up and support him because he’s now our candidate. (I have to add, when | Read More »
It appears that Obama believes that his sagging economy needs a boost.
Of course, his ridiculous story line is that the stimulus is working, (just not as good as it should, because of George W. Bush.) No really, the economy is not really that bad. (never mind that unemployment is at nearly 10% nationally, and almost 15% in several states including Harry Reid’s, never mind that forclosures are continuing to flood the housing market at unsustainable rates.) | Read More »
Harry Reid is the Leader of Delusional Democrats
In the fight of his politcal life Harry Reid once again has stepped up to show he is truly the Democrat’s leader. In a show of that leadership he has broken with the President taking a position against the building of a mosque near ground zero in New York. In doing so Sharron Angle welcomed Harry to the correct side of the issue. http://www.realclearpolitics.com/articles/2010/08/17/religion_again_takes_center_stage_in_nevada_senate_race_106782.html However, Sharron | Read More »
Get off your buts…
This is the most important congressional election in our lifetime. Carl Rove (I am not a big fan of his) said today on Hanity that he projects a gain of 37 seats in the U.S. House this year. That would leave the Republicans as the minority party. http://innovation.cqpolitics.com/atlas/house2010_rr Congressional Quarterly has worse numbers (what else would you expect from CQ?) than that. But what is | Read More »
Tuesday Primaries in 3 States
Three states will choose ccongressional candidates this Tuesday, Missouri, Kansas and Michigan. In two of those states, Missouri and Kansas, they will select new Senatorial Candidates, with the retirement of Sam Brownback (R) KS, and “Kit” Bond (R) MO. The Missouri senate race is pretty much a done deal as two big family names will clash for the seat. Democrat Secretary of State Robin Carnahan | Read More »
The Eyes of Texas on Congress
Texas has the first of the congressional primaries taking place this Tuesday, and there are a few interesting races to keep your radar screen. The first race is the District 4 race. The incumbant, Ralph Hall, is a former Democrat who became a Republican and has served the district for many years. One of the issues he has been facing is a constituency that wonders whether he | Read More »
Special Election Next Week
This Tuesday, on February 2nd, Florida will hold the primary for the 19th congressional district seat vacated by Robert Wexler. The Democrats include Peter Deutch who is the self appointed successor of Robert, “I don’t even live around here” Wexler. The other Domocrat is Ben Graber a Democrat thorn in Wexler’s side and anti-war on terror liberal in the mold of Pelosi. The Republican field | Read More »
Getting Rid of Alan Greyson
Every time this guy opens his mouth he inserts his very large foot in it. I just saw a great clip from, of all places, Chris Matthews Hardball. I first saw it thanks to Dan Perrin’s Jan 22nd post. http://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2010/01/22/matthews_to_grayson_reconciliation_will_not_work_with_senate.html What’s important to take from this confrontation between Greyson and Matthews is that Matthews does everything but call Greyson an idiot, which he seems to be. | Read More »
I am stunned by the announcement of Dede Scozzafava that she is dropping out the race in NY’s 23rd. I think the last straw was the endorsement of Doug Hoffman by George Pataki. Pataki has never been considered a right of center Republican much less a Conservative. In New York, however, the political game is a little more complex. New York is one of the few states | Read More »
Dunbar Village Gang Rape
You may wonder what this topic has to do with the Red State site? I was in a Palm Beach County courtroom on Friday and was able to hear the most incredible story of love and courage and I thought that I would share it with you. In case you didn’t hear this story and don’t about it, I warn you that it is an | Read More »
