Dear Republican Candidate:
I don’t know who you are or what office you are running for. I don’t know if you are male or female or which part of the country you hail from. There are a few things I do know, however, and you would be wise to take heed. You must be courageous and brave. You must not cower in the face of criticism or outright | Read More »
Sen. Tom Coburn’s response to me RE: Taking a public stand, voting for cloture, et cetera.
I wrote Sen. Coburn last week to say how disappointed I am in him in view of the fact he did not support Sen. Ted Cruz’s and Sen. Mike Lee’s efforts in the senate – efforts that very few people believed would work, but applauded just the same for the awesome effort made on our behalf. I told Sen. Coburn that just because he knew | Read More »
1-800-3(F) 8(U) 2(C) 5(K) 9(Y) 6(O)
EE and Mods – I want to apologize up front for the language. I couldn’t figure out a way to hide what it spells and have it make sense. Apparently, the actual number is 1-800-318-2596. Because there is no letter assigned to the #1 on a telephone keypad, if you remove the #1 from the phone number, you get the above as reported by Duane | Read More »
Jeb Bush has cooked his own goose
I saw this tidbit over at Breitbart (hat tip Dr. Susan Berry). Tonight, Jeb Bush will award Hillary Clinton the Liberty Medal from the National Constitution Center. Says Jeb “Former Secretary Clinton has dedicated her life to serving and engaging people across the world in democracy. These efforts as a citizen, an activist and a leader have earned Secretary Clinton this year’s Liberty Medal.” Bush | Read More »
Prayer Request for Oklahoma
Many of you may be aware of the devastating tornadoes that ripped through Oklahoma yesterday and today. As of this time, approximately 40 people have lost their lives and unfortunately that number will be rising. I know that there are hundreds of good Redstaters who are members of faith communities. If you are a member of a prayer chain, I would like to ask that | Read More »
EE – I hope you don’t mind…
I’ve just nominated you for a Breitbart award. I’d like to encourage others to do the same for Erick and/or anyone else you believe worthy of that distinction. Here’s what I wrote. “In 2004, a blog called RedState.org was conceived by conservatives for conservatives to promote the conservative message and educate those in the grassroots movement. Erick Erickson volunteered his services not long afterward and | Read More »
The Difference Between Us and Dem
There is a fundamental difference between Conservatives and Liberals, one that will never be resolved. No one on either side will ever truly understand the other because of this difference. The Liberal rules from the heart and Conservatives rule from the head. Liberals use emotion to ramp up whatever audience is their target into a frenzy of feelings. They do it with everything. Think how | Read More »
Lesson Learned (?) and an Invitation
It has sometimes been said we elect the president we deserve. It has also been said we elect the president we need for the times. I’m not too sure how this applies when half of the country is diametrically opposed to the other half. Perhaps those who have said this were on the victorious side! I must admit that I totally agree with what EE | Read More »
The Stuff Nightmares Are Made Of
I rented Occupy Unmasked. Yikes, it’s scary to have your doubts confirmed and proven to be true, but more so when it turns out your doubts were just the tip of the proverbial iceberg. If you haven’t seen it, I highly recommend you do and then give thanks for Andrew Breitbart. It’s unnerving to see how easily the Progressive/Liberal left can organize and use the | Read More »
Give yourself a time out and come play Staff the Romney Administration
Have a headache? Are your eyes and ears going to start bleeding if you read or hear about one more stupid, inept action by the most corrupt presidency in our beloved nation’s history? Take a little break and help appoint the Romney Administration’s cabinet (do they still call it that?) and staff. This is my thought. I’ll start the ball rolling with The Newt. Sometimes | Read More »
The Smartest Guy in the Room?
I think not. In fact, I have always believed Obama is just the face of the agenda and others are running the show. I know it’s normal to have ‘advisors’ who shape policy and opinion, but I don’t think Obama himself has any agenda other than to be The President and to appear to be the one who is the Magnificent Brain behind the policy. | Read More »
Amazon disgusts, angers and disappoints me.
Mods, I hope you will allow me to post this here as I don’t know of another place to state my anger where it will get the attention of the kind of people that I’m sure will share it. I was searching for a book by James Patterson yesterday on my Kindle. I no longer remember what the title was, only that it spit back | Read More »
Marriage is not a ‘right’
Marriage is a privilege, not a right. No one has the ‘right’ to get married. No one has the right to promote the degradation of society either. We’ve tumbled down some slippery slopes in my lifetime and I’d prefer that we stop before we become an entire nation that resembles Hieronymus Bosch’s Garden of Earthly Delights. When I was in high school in the 1970s, only rarely | Read More »
Why I’ve decided to not only vote for Romney, but help in every way I can to get him elected.
When Obama was elected and after we had witnessed the inauguration freak show (reminded me of Stephen King’s ‘The Stand’), I told a friend I had never before been afraid for my country until that moment. I could not, and still can’t, understand how people could be so gullible as to fall for his empty Hope and Change spiel. How could this nobody be elected President of | Read More »
EE Tweaks McConnell’s Not-So-Funny Bone
Found this on the Daily Caller. It cracked me up and I had to share it. On the Laura Ingraham show today, Mitch McConnell got his nose put out of joint when she informed him EE had said McConnell is “an appropriator before he’s a Republican.”, to which he replied “That’s entirely inaccurate,” McConnell responded. “I don’t even know who Erick Erickson is, but he has | Read More »
I’m at a loss for words at how much this makes me feel sick to my stomach
Really, it’s beyond offensive. That’s all I have to say about this for now. I guess I should edit this and say this flag was flying below the true Stars and Bars at the Democratic Party Headquarters (gee, go figure) in Lake County, Florida. A group of veterans insisted it be taken down or they would do it for them, to which Nancy Hurlbert, Democratic | Read More »
The Monumental Ego of Mitt Romney
I find it very interesting, and somewhat pathetic, that the man insists on staying in the race. What does it say about a man, whom most conservatives do not like nor trust, who insists on staying in a race even when he hasn’t shown he can win a clear majority in a primary or a caucus? When you add up all the non-Romney votes, they | Read More »
Oklahoma’s Personhood bill
My state has taken a bold move in legislation with Senate Bill 1433, which states life begins at conception. It has passed out of committee 5 – 2 and should be coming up for a vote this week. The author of the bill carefully researched and incorporated what is already constitutionally protected for the unborn from recent Supreme Court decisions and says it is as | Read More »
It’s dark in here and I can’t get anything clean
I was at Wally World yesterday and thought I would add to my stash of incandescent light bulbs (I prefer GE Reveal bulbs). All I could find were 100 watt bulbs that I don’t need. I gave a few seconds thought to pitching the Holy Mother of Fits in the middle of the store, but because it’s not WalMart’s fault our government has decided what | Read More »
I will FIGHT for Speaker Gingrich to win.
My mourning period for the candidacy of Gov. Rick Perry is nearly over. Since the beginning, Speaker Gingrich has been my second choice, now my first. I’d like to share with you one of the reasons the Speaker has my support. President Reagan was the first president I ever voted for and voting for him was the last time I didn’t have to hold my | Read More »
Do You Believe In The Power Of One Vote?
(Before I begin, I’d like to thank the Powers That Be for granting me the privilege of a diary!) I absolutely believe in the power of my one vote. This is perhaps the greatest of all “rights” our Constitution gives us, the right to vote for whomever we choose. It seems to me that our rights are being compromised almost to the point of being taken | Read More »
