The (Arab) Winter of Our Discontent
. “What all the wise men promised has not happened, and what all the damned fools said would happen has come to pass.” – Lord Melbourne . Don’t let the administration or the media get away with telling the world that this came about because of some cheesy video clip. They are saying that in order to draw attention away from their shitty Foreign Policy | Read More »
A Somber Remembrance – Thoughts on the Anniversary of 9/11
I suppose every generation has its share of “Where were you when….?” moments – those “somethings” that happen that are so big, so life-altering, and which affect so many people that the vast majority of them have a memory etched into their mind of where they were when they heard the news, how they felt when they heard the news, and how it changed their | Read More »
I Can Publish New Posts, but I Can’t Make (or Approve) Comments….
Dear RedState, I love the new look of your site, but for whatever reason, I can’t make comments to your posts. Not only that, I can’t approve comments to my posts, either. I don’t know if it is a Disqus problem (I’m having some issues with my Disqus account and e-mail accounts syncing) or not – I’m working with them to resolve my personal account | Read More »
Throwing Granny Off the Cliff (Again)
. . Ah, yes – this old chestnut is being dredged up again as the Democrats go into full-blown panic mode at the thought of the formidability of the Romney/Ryan ticket. Too bad for them that Conservatives have learned to use the social media to their advantage over the past 4 years, and we’ve pretty much taken over all of the outlets that the Democrats | Read More »
Paul Ryan is the GOP’S New VP Candidate
Here’s my reaction: Come on, November! [Cross-posted at Koch's Tour]

The Big Boob Conundrum (aka “Breasts of Mass Destruction”)
. New York City’s Mayor Michael Bloomberg has officially lost it: Under Latch On NYC, new mothers who want formula won’t be denied it, but hospitals will keep infant formula in out-of-the-way secure storerooms or in locked boxes like those used to dispense and track medications. With each bottle a mother requests and receives, she’ll also get a talking-to. Staffers will explain why she should | Read More »
I Didn’t Write This Post – Al Gore Did
[promoted from the diaries as part of the Ambitious Writer's Program] . Since Rebecca is home all day during the summer, we’re having fun introducing her to a wider range of movies. Whereas before she was primarily interested in the animated flicks, this year she has developed a taste for the offbeat humor that us older folks enjoy. Her current favorite is “Ghostbusters”, but we watched “Men in | Read More »

The strength of the Constitution lies entirely in the determination of each citizen to defend it. Only if every single citizen feels duty bound to do his share in this defense are the constitutional rights secure. –Albert Einstein We the people are the rightful masters of both Congress and the courts, not to overthrow the Constitution but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution. | Read More »
Falafel Stands – Yes, Chicken Sandwiches – No
Well, gay activists have started yet another hate campaign against yet another company, employing some Cirque-du-Soleil type of mental gymnastics to misrepresent one man’s response to a simple question asked during an interview with a Christian publication. It seems that a business owner’s personal beliefs are enough for these hysterical screechers to run to anyone who will listen and scream “It’s not fair!” in order | Read More »
The Instruments of Their Own Destruction
[Cross-posted at Koch's Tour] . Liberals in this country have brought about their own demise – they just don’t realize it yet. Ever since the Sexual Revolution, liberals have been on a path of species self-destruction. Through their “enlightened” policies over the past 40 – 50 years, they have quite literally managed to socially engineer themselves into obscurity. In another 20 years it is quite | Read More »
The Important Things
. One of the joys of having a child with Down syndrome is that they are constantly reminding you of the truly important things in life, simply by living a life full of joy and happiness. They live each day to the fullest, and they live each day full of love. For Rebecca’s birthday, we took her to see the new Pixar movie “Brave”. Rachel | Read More »
Happy Birthday, America!
. “When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the | Read More »
An Unelected Political Appointee Just Became The Most Powerful Person in the Country
. . It’s been an interesting few days, hasn’t it? One man’s vote declared that The Government can tax its citizens for not purchasing a good or a service. And under the law that was upheld, one person – namely the unelected, politically-appointed Secretary of Health and Human Services – gets to decide which goods and services will be provided under that law (and more | Read More »
SCOTUS Pwns Obama with a “Schrodinger’s Cat” Solution
. “Bite me, Obama.” In essence, I think that is what Chief Justice John Roberts just said to the spoiled child who set about to “fundamentally transform” this country. Obama just got hit right between the eyes with Justice Roberts’ Schrodinger’s Cat decision on the fate of Obamacare. While all of the liberals are whooping it up and celebrating their “win”, they have lost sight | Read More »
Proposed – A New Amendment to the Constitution
“No branch of Government may compel any Citizen to participate in Commerce, nor may any Citizen be penalized or taxed for choosing not to participate in Commerce.” That’s my humble submission for a new Constitutional Amendment.
Start Popping Out Those Future Taxpayers, Kids – Time to Share Your Wealth…
. . All right, all of you young kids who couldn’t wait to vote for Obama back in 2008 – time for you guys to start “sharing the wealth” with those of us who are about to be hit with exorbitant tax rates thanks to Obamacare. See, the way I see it, you owe us now. You wanted Hope and Change? You wanted Free Health | Read More »
King Barack III
. . Mere hours after the Supreme Court handed down their verdict on the fate of Arizona’s SB1070, the country was treated to this: The Obama administration said Monday it is suspending existing agreements with Arizona police over enforcement of federal immigration laws, and said it has issued a directive telling federal authorities to decline many of the calls reporting illegal immigrants that the Homeland | Read More »
The Real-Life “Fast and Furious” – More Twists and Turns Than a Hollywood Movie
Barack Obama and Eric Holder are hiding behind Executive Privilege in the hope that their involvement in the ATF program “Fast and Furious” – which ultimately resulted in the deaths of US Border Patrol agent Brian Terry and at least 300 Mexican citizens (possibly including the brother of then-attorney general Patricia Gonzalez Rodriguez) – will not come to light. Whether they like it or not, | Read More »
I’m Going to Need a Bigger Bottle of Aspirin…..
. . So here’s the latest story that is has been making the rounds: A transgender man made a bold move on Friday during an extravagant White House reception in honor of LGBT Pride Month: he dropped down on one knee and proposed to his partner. Scout, whose full name is legally one word, popped the question to Liz Margolies just minutes after President Barack | Read More »
So Now the President Gets to Decide Who Is an American Citizen?
. “Constitutional Scholar”, my ass…. I guess Mr. Obama thinks that he is the King of America, rather than the President. Because the last time I checked, the Chief Executive of the United States of America does not have the power to do an end-run around Congress, just because they aren’t doing what he wants them to do. It matters not to Mr. Obama that | Read More »
Happy Flag Day!
.. What better way to celebrate this day than with a song specifically about the United States flag? Written by George M. Cohan in 1906 – and the first song from a musical to sell over a million copies of sheet music – “You’re a Grand Old Flag” has been popular for over a century: The original lyric for this perennial George M. Cohan favorite | Read More »

Mitt Romney Comes to Fort Worth
. . It started out innocently enough – we received a phone call on Sunday afternoon, inviting us to “Come out and see Mitt Romney when he visits Fort Worth this Tuesday!”, followed by information about where and when, as well as a website and phone number where we could get more of the particulars about the event. Well, honestly – how often do you | Read More »
