A bright red line has been crossed in Boston.
I don’t care who did this. It should not have happened. That is not to say I don’t want justice, only that the administration asleep at the wheel cannot be trusted to deliver that justice. First we have a riot in Gitmo. Then there is a bombing at the Boston Marthon. Connect the dots. Could we have not had a greater warning that something was | Read More »

Reince Priebus: $10M on carpetbaggers is a stupid plan. Here is how to fix it.
What you waste money on elsewhere I don’t care, but we should have won the Delaware Valley, and what you must do in Philadelphia probably will work elsewhere. Here is the solution. Don’t hire people to go to Philadelphia. Hire people from Philadelphia. I can get you a list of Asian, Mexican and Puerto Rican, Black, and immigrants from Eastern European who are recent college | Read More »
Nation building should start at home.
Decades have passed since Progressives have pushed Republican influence from the big cities. Republicans have surrendered these cities to the progressives and their allies, and let them become plantations that favor the elitist agenda. Unfortunately, the voting power of the territory that Republicans have surrendered is sufficient to decide many state wide and all national Senate and oval office elections. We can’t abandon the cities | Read More »
Hey POTUS, Everybody gave up 2%, quit your bellyaching and man up.
Let me run some numbers by you. For the 2012 budget the government took in $2,468,600,000,000 (about $2.5 trillion) If expects for the 2013 budget $2,901,960,000,000 (about $2.9 trillion) or an increase of 433,360,000,000 That is over 17% increase in revenue. I don’t know anyone who saw their take home pay jump 17% . Everybody saw a cut of 2% for FICA withholding tax increases. | Read More »
Wlimington DE: Your purpose is to serve as an example to others.
A gift to Wilmington Delaware from their good friends (and home town hero) Barack Obama and Joe Biden The Philadelphia Daily News reports that Wilmington (DE) is in decline according to Wall Street. ” The high poverty rate in the cities slum predominately neighborhoods, scarred by drug trade and violence, along with fixed high costs including pensions economically sensitive revenues and weakening wealth levels makes | Read More »
The Delaware Valley Beat
PART 1 Trains kill people, legislator wants to regulate trains. Another example of what is wrong with politicians. We have a Republican this time trying to make trains suicide proof. The concept is mind boggling, see the last paragraph in the quote below. There is nothing you can do except take away all the trains that will make a train safe against someone bound and | Read More »

It’s open line Friday and this caller’s discouragement stumps Rush
It is open line Friday on the Rush Limbaugh show and a caller makes the case that there is no hope to defeat Obama. So Rush asks him, “do you think that the administration will continue to deficit spend and that the debt will continue to grow?” to which the caller replies yes! Rush follow up with a second question asking “do you think that | Read More »

Republican vs Democrat, redefined for the times.
According to the guest on Bill Bennett’s Morning in America radio show Friday, the difference between Democrats and Republicans is that Democrats trust in big government programs to solve America’s problems while Republicans trust in people. At one time this would have been a good answer. Karl Rove would have approved it. For the Reagonomics Era, from the 1980′s through the first half decade of | Read More »
Ascent of the Patronage Economy.
Barrack Obama has been on a mission to fundamentally change America. It is a revolution and as has finally been noted by our side the target is the Reagan revolution. Obama is out to destroy the Republican party and to finish the job President Johnson started. But what is that? With terms like collective efforts being bantered about there are overtones of Stalinist socialism. No | Read More »
Time for Ridcule – Why I am not upset about gun control
I know this is a serious subject but taking the Democrats seriously is NOT the way to end the discussion of gun control. Using Rule #5 “Ridicule is man’s most powerful weapon” is the way to shut the democrats up for good. And gun control could be the opportunity. Why I am not upset about gun control. Obama lived his high school years in an | Read More »
Some quick thoughts on the tax bill
The NEA executives would probably have had to pay more in taxes, if the Republicans did nothing after we went over the cliff. The legislators in Washington would have had to pay more in taxes if we did nothing after America went over the fiscal cliff. I would like to add a new bracket category to the rich, middle class and working class. The Rich | Read More »
Obama buys third term
The price was cheap. Raise Legislator salaries for the first time in years, so the pain of the taxes that were raised for everyone won’t hurt. Raise the threshold so that enough of the Representatives and Senatorswon’t get hit with soak the rich rates unless their wives make absurd income. Allow John Boehner to hold Ohio Represnetative’s seat as his fief as long as he | Read More »
Cutting spending, shrinking government, painlessly? Not
General numbers. About forty percent of our spending is for discretionary items. The same amount that is deficit spending, The truth is that if you cut 40% of the spending to balance the budget or you shut down the government (except for non-discretionary spending) the result will be exactly the same. Two years ago, give or take a few days, we voted to create the | Read More »
Are we in this to win, or sleep well at night.
The first step in getting what we want in Washington is to stop arguing about what is the best way to do everything and concentrate on the need for power. The Democrats understand this. Who is our Diane Feinstein? Who is sitting in the wings just waiting for an opportunity to advance power grabbing legislation that will help weaken the grip of the establishment progressives? | Read More »
Guns in schools? Yes, but how……
This week there has been a lot of discussion about guns in schools. The no gun zone liberals seem to be winning the argument and another opportunity to make America a gun free zone is too good for the Democrats to pass up. But the real question needs to be why the government has failed in it’s most basic concept of making our communities safe | Read More »
Anything but debt the ceiling.
Give Obama anything he wants on taxes, and a few months from now Joe Q Public starts asking why we need to raise the debt ceiling after Obama fixed the taxes. Give him the debt ceiling and Joe Q Public thinks everything in Washington is fine now, because see, we don’t have to keep fighting to borrow money and that means we are not borrowing | Read More »
Where gun control belongs in our discussions.
Arguing about whether guns are protected is a waste of energy, because government can’t control anything, they can’t control the border, they can’t control illegal immigration, they can’t control drugs, they can’t control the mentally ill who make our streets unsafe for children, and our put our health at risks, they can’t control repeat criminals, or flash mobs. They can’t even control there own spending. | Read More »
Nadler and Bloomburg – they just couldn’t wait.
Guns, these things always involve guns. They involve people that can’t adjust normally to society and guns. They always involve media hysteria, people who can’t adjust to society, people who are criminals. people who are perpetual troublemakers, people who are broken though no fault of their own, but broken none the less, people who are a threat to themselves and to others, and they involve | Read More »
REED: No time for deal or does he mean here comes Obama’s tax cuts?
For everyone that wants to hold the line on taxes and threatens to castigate any Republican that votes to raise any taxes repeat after me. “We can win in 2014 defending the Obama tax cuts”. Because that is what is coming. Obama has never negotiated in good faith because he can manipulate the Republicans into doing what he wants, and we help him. He wants | Read More »
Time to get serious.
The Obama administration is not negotiating in good faith. This comes as a surprise? The Obama administration sees everything, including the “fiscal cliff” negotiations in terms of a long term strategy to gain power and influence. There is no reason for Obama to negotiate. The only power that the Republicans have is to shut down all spending, in effect, shutting down the government. Power is | Read More »
In reply to Ned Ruyn, we are blinded, not stupid.
Ned Ruyn’s post “I Think Sometimes We are Truly a Stupid Movement” brings up important weaknesses in our fundamental approach to politics that if we cannot resolve will condemn us to failure. All is not lost for us, but it will be unless we change our approach to politics as a whole. When confronted with great challenges and wondering where to start, do the obvious. | Read More »
Your home work assignment: Win this caller’s vote.
On the drive home since the election I have been forcing myself to tune in (and stay tuned into) the Liberal Talk show “team” that is on our local CBS affiliate. It is difficult. But I received an answer to a question that has haunted me. Why white blue collar workers, an important part of the the Reagan Democrat and Independents who in the past | Read More »
