Surviving the Redesign of RedState
Thought I would throw together a few thoughts to test the redesign of RedState and see how many more bugs might be around. It’s been nearly a week since the switch-over and what a week it has been. After about day three, I was really missing the old RedState and wondering if things would ever be the same or at least come close. And conversely, | Read More »
The Public Stoning of Akin…A Foolish Strategy
Just when I was feeling more hopeful about Romney’s chances to win the White House due primarily to his decision to put Paul Ryan on his ticket, the Republican Party shows its propensity to be just as petty, vindictive and cruel as the liberals we so despise. I am still stunned and saddened as I watch prominent party spokesmen, as well as many on RedState, | Read More »
Hillsdale’s Free Constitution Course Still Available
Some of you may remember several announcements here at RedState a few months ago about the online course on the Constitution being offered for free by Hillsdale College. I just received my Certificate of Completion in the mail for the course which is titled, “Constitution 101 The Meaning and History of the Constitution.” I just wanted to remind everyone that the course continues to have | Read More »
I lost my innocence at RedState…will I ever get it back? [Updated]
Okay, I need some feedback, again. I’m getting scared. I think I might be becoming a political junky and I’m not sure I like it. No, really. Before I decided it was imperative for me to do my duty to help save my country from Obama, I was relatively naive about politics and just thought of them as a necessary evil. Now, I seem to | Read More »
Ya’ know what, Obama? We’re just not that into you.
Ever tried to break up with a controlling and abusive boyfriend or girlfriend? It can get real scary depending on how dysfunctional they are. They have a hard time listening to what you’re trying to tell them because they are so caught up in their own impenetrable world. Speaking with certitude and a level of arrogance that is hard to relate to for the average | Read More »
It’s a Conspiracy…All Three Branches of the Feds are Assaulting States’ Sovereignty
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people. Amendment X A couple of years ago, when I decided I could no longer stay on the sidelines in the political struggle for the soul of our nation, I cut my teeth on an in-depth study | Read More »
Time For Another Tea Party Backlash [Updated]
The Courts have failed us again, and, of course, no one has been able yet to fully digest what just transpired, but at a minimum, our judicial overlords have failed to protect Americans from the Obamacare travesty. I can barely think straight or comprehend how the Courts used the “it’s a tax” justification to uphold the individual mandate. All I know is I am just | Read More »
“Fast and Furious” Morphs into “Slow and Whiny”
Arrested development. That is the term that comes to mind when I listen to White House Press Secretary Jay Carney or U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder defend the indefensible operation dubbed “Fast and Furious.” Only someone stuck in their adolescence could respond as they do. They both remind me of junior high school adolescents who insist the marijuana found in their backpack belongs to a | Read More »
Is This a Win In The Making For Libertarians?
With a President now getting more and more comfortable with issuing edicts and a Congress becoming equally more and more impotent with respect to doing anything about it, I think this may actually equate into a victory for Libertarians.* Let me explain myself. We are witnessing a virtual implosion of the rule of law as we helplessly watch the most corrupt (IMO) person who has | Read More »
Dark Horse Emerges To Take On U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein…Who Is She?
In the shadow of Wisconsin’s historic recall election last Tuesday, Californians turned out in record lows to vote in the state’s first open primary where the top two winners in each race — regardless of party affiliation — would secure the nomination. As California continues to stumble around in darkness and disarray due to so many changes in redistricting, things may start to become more | Read More »
