Final Rasmussen Party ID Means Doom for Dems
The final Rasmussen party ID has been issued today: D- 33.3 R- 39.1 I– 27.5 This is the greatest margin for Republican party ID in any poll taken, perhaps in the history of modern day polling. With the enthusiasm shown in the Romney/Ryan rallies, together with the lack of such by the Dems as evidenced by their generally much lower early voting numbers, this is | Read More »
13 Year Old Learns That U.S. Flag is Offensive to Many
Apparently the election we just had, as well as previous embarrassing attempts by other school districts in the name of political correctness, has not changed the thinking of school teachers and administrators. Instead of berating this kid about flying the U.S. flag on the back of his bike and ordering him to remove it, they should be lecturing those complaining students about what that flag | Read More »
Early Voting Update
Last week Brad Smith had a great diary with some 2010 early voting numbers from George Mason University’s web page. The 2008 early voting numbers are here. Since we have a significant percentage of the early vote now in, I have listed below those states where we have comparative 2008 early voting numbers. The total next to each state represents the total early vote in | Read More »
Doom for Quinn and Giannoulias!
Carol Marin had a great column in today’s Chicago Sun-Times highlighting the really bad news for Democrats in Illinois stemming from the early voting numbers thus far: Let’s look at early voting, for instance, and the fact that for the first time since its inception, the suburbs are surpassing the city in turnout. In some cases, the ratio is 3-1. …With just one more week | Read More »
League of Women Voters Shows Their Partisan Bias
Marty Lamb is running against Jim McGovern, the current Congressman from the MA 3rd congressional district. Last night they held a debate which was sponsored by the League of Women Voters, with Stefani Traina as moderator, who is the director of the MA League of Women Voters. When Marty attempted to lay out the record of Jim McGovern, his actual voting record, this partisan hack | Read More »
The Pajamahadeen Gets the Last Laugh on Jonathan Klein at CNN
Klein is out as head of CNN. We all remember his rant during the Dan Rather “fake memo” episode: “It’s an important moment, because you couldn’t have a starker contrast between the multiple layers of checks and balances, and a guy sitting in his living room in his pajamas writing what he thinks.” Jim Geraghty of NRO online said it best back in 2004: “From | Read More »
The Muslim Indoctrination Has Begun
In late May of 2010, Wellesley, Massachusetts public middle school students took a field trip to the Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center – a controversial Saudi-funded mega-mosque run by the Muslim American Society of Boston. There, the students were separated by gender and the boys were asked to join the Muslim adults in their prayer. Several of the public school boys took part. These | Read More »
Governor Chris Christie’s Smackdown of NJ Teachers Union
“> A NJ teacher was complaining at a town hall meeting this week about the many teachers who had been laid off, about how she can’t pay her bills, and how uncaring the Governor has been by, she claims, lambasting the teachers. Christie’s response blows her and the union away. If they had taken the one year pay freeze and agreed to contribute 1.5% of | Read More »
Say Goodbye, Charlie!
A key Charlie Crist ally, Imam Muhammad Musri, hosted a Hamas fundraiser in a Florida Mosque, as reported by Patrick S. Poole yesterday. Here’s the video as taken from a camera crew from ACT for America who infiltrated the event held at Masjid Al-Rahman, Musri’s mosque, in March of 2009: It will be interesting to hear Crist try to spin his way out of this | Read More »
Stop Spending, Stop Spending, Stop Spending!!
RCP: “Stop Spending”: CNBC’s Santelli Warns Liesman “November 2nd Is The Day” from RCP Video on Vimeo. Rick Santelli wins the day again. After his rant last year on CNBC which helped launch the Tea Party movement, we have this gem of a video where he puts down that Obama flack, Steve Liesman, also of CNBC. You have to love this guy. He states his | Read More »
A Battle Not Forgotten
Next Sunday is Fathers Day, and many of us will reflect on what our dads accomplished during WWII, earning them the term, “the greatest generation”. My dad served on a destroyer that took part in the Battle of Okinawa, a battle which has lost its place in history because of the events a few months later in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. But this was a battle | Read More »
We Need More Plain Talking Candidates Like This
And Tim James is the moderate in this race. These are the languages in which the State of Alabama offers driver’s license exams: Arabic, Chinese, English, Farsi, French, German, Greek, Japanese, Korean, Russian, Spanish, Thai, and Vietnamese. I wonder how many of them can read “no left turn” and “no passing” signs on the road after they get their license? Maybe they should post all | Read More »
Why Easter Has an Extra Special Meaning to Me This Year
On Sunday we celebrate the most important Christian holiday of the year, the resurrection of our Savior, Jesus Christ, and His granting to us of everlasting life. Four years ago this month, on the day before Easter, I lost my dad of 82 years. He had spent his last nine years in a nursing home as a result of a stroke. During those years, although | Read More »
Massachusetts Has Gone to the Dogs
That is, they’ve gone to the dogs for their latest tax/fee increase proposal: http://www.bostonherald.com/news/politics/view/20090918state_plots_dog_surcharge/srvc=home&position=3 Not content with an increase in the state sales tax in August from 5% to 6.25%, these bozos now want a $3 surcharge on municipal license fees for your little pooch. A democrat state rep claims that the additional fees are needed to pay for the cost of the rising number | Read More »
Why is Gordon Brown Heading for a Crushing Defeat?
Many in the press would have you believe that he is doing a bad job in supporting the British troops in Afghanistan: http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/news/2619400/Tory-landslide-predicted-at-next-election-in-crucial-Sun-poll.html But another story from the Telegraph: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/health/healthnews/6127514/Sentenced-to-death-on-the-NHS.html hits closer to home. The people are seeing how state-run health care has now led to what essentially are death committees, whereby doctors and other medical staff are prematurely determining who is close to death | Read More »
Time to Indoctrinate the Children
On September 8, 2009, Obama will address all public school children across the U.S.: http://www.docstoc.com/docs/10582301/President-Obama’s-Address-to-Students-Across-America-September-8-2009 As shown in this link, the Department of Education has sent out a menu of classroom activities for PreK-6 students. Since Obama has been unable to convince most Americans about his health care plan, especially seniors, perhaps he can persuade the children that this is a right that all of | Read More »
Thanks, but no thanks.
I am ashamed to say that a town in my state of MA puts community decorum above the need to show respect and appreciation for the veterans of the Irag and Afghanistan wars. A Millbury, MA stoneworks owner donated a granite statue to the town of Swampscott after a Swampcott Veterans Agent wrote the winning essay in a contest to see where the statue would be | Read More »
The California crazies
After over two decades in Los Angeles, Creators Syndicate has had enough. Retroactive tax increases, interest and penalties were just too much to bear: http://online.wsj.com/article/SB124718265362620253.html#mod=djemEditorialPage The City of Los Angeles business income tax is one of the harshest and oppressive in the country. The tax is on gross revenue, not profits, so you can lose money for the year and still pay the tax. Typical Hollywood accounting. | Read More »
California Democrats find (they think) a novel way to increase state revenues
They still don’t get it out on the left coast. Even after a state referendum that told legislators (and the governator) that the people wanted spending cuts, not tax increases, these jokers must be on a death wish. As Jane Wells of CNBC reports today, http://www.cnbc.com/id/31669585 an 18 cent gas tax is being repealed and changed to a user fee, while other new taxes are | Read More »
Freedom of Speech Takes a Hit
Where is the outrage here regarding the predicament in which Michael Savage finds himself? I won’t even bother to link anything since I’m sure most of you know what I am talking about. While Savage may not have many friends at this website, he is still an American citizen with the same free speech rights that the rest of us enjoy. To lump him in | Read More »
More of the Obama Hypocrisy
Obama, as President, is now asking for $83.4 billion to fund the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. As Senator he was against the wars and voted in 2007 not to fund them…. http://www.breitbart.com/article.php?id=D97F3U5O0&show_article=1 In addition to the funding he has increased troop levels in Afghanistan. Now that he is Commander-In-Chief, I wonder how he would feel about Senators who vote against the increased funding? Also, I wonder | Read More »
Speaking of Obama Trial Balloons…
The latest one I’m hearing concerns housing for the homeless. With unemployment increasing with each passing day, the ranks of the homeless are, too. Tent cities are popping up in places like Sacramento and San Diego, and the mayors of those cities are getting restless. We have a glut of foreclosed and soon to be foreclosed homes, with most of those dwellings now vacant, owned | Read More »
Warren Buffet Now an Economic Advisor to Obama
Most people believe that Warren Buffet is a sage when it comes to economic and finacial matters. That may have been true decades ago, but lately Buffet has a less than perfect record of picking the direction of the economy and the stock market. Consider the following two Barron’s articles published in March and October of this year: “In the equity-derivatives market, Berkshire has taken | Read More »
The AP will stop at nothing to smear Sarah Palin!
Thisis must reading for everyone. Powerline does an excellent job of taking down this reporter. Someone needs to do some checking on this so-called reporter. If this type of smearing is allowed to stand without retort, then we really are doomed.
