Creating a Transparent Government
I know our current President has made a transparent government one of his campaign slogans. I am glad to hear it, but I am very skeptical that he actually means it in a non partisan way. He only means transparent on any dirt of Republicans they can find. There have been many ways proposed to create a transparent government. An example is the earmark reform | Read More »
Israel’s Forgotten Soldier
In 2006 Israel was plunged into a war with Hezbollah (The Party of God) in Southern Lebanon. However, how many people remember why that conflict started? We all remember how it ended. Israel was left with doubts about its military ability to defend itself for the first time in its history. It ended up not going well at all. The conflict in Southern Lebanon was | Read More »

Happy Red State Birthday to Me
Well, I never expected to have this happen. I turned three years old here at Red State. I noticed there is another blog posting where Gordon Taylor has turned three as well. Happy Birthday to you too. I started blogging on Google’s Blog Spot and Wubbies World was born. I also started to blog at Town Hall as well. Then I stumbled upon Red State | Read More »
The Main Stream News Media and Consequences of Behavior
In the current day and age we live in, politically we live in a damaged landscape. In the wake of the 2008 election, the devastation is fairly extensive in contrast to what we had before the end of the 1960’s. You might be asking yourself what I am talking about in respects to devastation. We all have known for some time that since the days | Read More »
Conservatives Escaping the Winderness
I am typing this post as an impromptu post. It may wander some, but I will do my best to keep it focused. In the General War on Terror, we came to realize that the terrorists had declared war against us, and were actively engaged in it long before we even bothered to pay attention and lift a finger about it. However, it took 911 | Read More »
Engaging The Arena of Ideas
This is going to be short. I need to get ready for work. Yesterday I made a post critical of the Republican Main Street Partnership and the moderates there whose own goals on their web site is to counter Conservatism. I also pointed out that some very prominent members of the Republican Party belong to this group. John McCain is one of them. Now that | Read More »
Conservatives Thank the Republican Main Street Partnership
To quote one of our posts here on Red State, “the great moderate experiment in the Republican Party is over!” – Will someone please tell the moderate Republicans of the Republican Main Street Partnership! In 1980 Ronald Reagan was elected president. The great Reagan Revolution was born with the melding of conservatives, evangelical Christians, and the “Reagan Democrats”. In 1994, Newt Gingrich engineered the take | Read More »
Fred Head Comes Back Out of The Closet
Today, or should I say, the night has been a long one. After Pennsylvania went down, so did I. At that point last night, after the “bankrupt the coal industry” tape came out, and Obama still won that state, I knew it was over. After that occurred I knew that Republicans were toast, but that is only my opinion. This post is NOT an “I | Read More »
I Blame Global Warming for…..
It is amazing what can happen when global warming alarmists reach a fevered pitch. To whit: Big snow flakes fell early Friday evening, turning Downtown Boise into a giant snow globe for people on their way home from work. snip At 10 p.m., the Weather Service said 1.7 inches of snow had fallen. The previous earliest recorded snowfall was Oct. 12, 1969, when a little | Read More »
We Got Somebody Big in Pakistan
I saw this article on the Fox News web site and found these opening paragraphs rather interesting. DERA ISMAIL KHAN, Pakistan — Intelligence officials suspect a top militant leader may have been killed in an alleged U.S. missile strike because the Taliban are unusually angry about the attack. Amid reports of the death toll rising to 24, informants and agents in the field said members | Read More »
The Day After….
I will start this post with a disclaimer. I am a novice when it comes to financial markets. I invest in stocks and such and I watch the markets, but I am not one you can consider reliable source. However, I can watch the news and make observations that are not too bad. They are just not always right. With that said, I woke up | Read More »
For a Change of Pace, Some Good News to Read.
In light of all the disastrous news coming out of Wall Street and Washington DC. Anything to change the days news intake to something positive for private enterprise, and away from a socialist model, is always welcome news. Today at the Kwajalein Atoll in the Pacific, Space X, a private space launch services company, who has designed and built their own space launch system had | Read More »
Obama gets Hand Caught in Cookie Jar
This is a news story I saw on Power Line Blog, about a news story reported by John Gibson on Fox News. As we all know, Obama blames Wall St. crisis on Republican policy. Of course, that is to be expected. Republicans support free markets and evil capitalism, so Republicans must be to blame. However, in this one instance, an old magicians trick is being | Read More »
Is It Me, or Do Ordinary People See It Too?
Is it me, and Republicans in general who are paying attention, or does the general public see the deliberate attempt to destroy Sara Palin for what it is? I genuinely believe Sara Palin is doing a wonderful job with her involvement in the campaign despite the withering blasts coming her way. However, the one thing she cannot control is the news stories taken totally out | Read More »
Red State is Improving – Are You?
I too am one of the number of people who have been driven beyond crazy with the Red State problems. However, due to my computer background, I knew there had to be an explanation and a resolution. I did not know what it all was, because I am not privy to any of the efforts going on by the staff, but I knew it was | Read More »
Democrats Really Don’t Like Republicans in South Dakota
In Sioux Falls, South Dakota, at the campaign Headquarters for Republican Senate candidate Joel Dykstra, there was a letter that came in the mail this morning. This was not an ordinary letter. A letter that arrived at U.S. Senate candidate Joel Dykstra’s Sioux Falls office today contained baby powder, preliminary tests show. The letter also contained a threat to either Dykstra’s campaign or Republicans in | Read More »
Sen. Tim Johnson’s Campaign Schedule
It seems that Senator Tim Johnson, on the heels of his refusing any public debates with his challenger Joel Dydstra, has announces his barnstorming campaign schedule so the people can meet him and talk to him. There is only one problem, they are closed to the public!
The Real Camapign Issue in S Dakota Senate Race
Here in S Dakota, the Senate race is getting a bit bizarre. We have a Senate candidate, a sitting Senator, who suffered a terrible brain injury. As we all know, the tragedy to this man, and his family must be enormous. I am thankful he survived, my aunt wasn’t so lucky with the same injury, but there comes a time where the question has to | Read More »
Sen John Thune Wieghs In on S Dakota’s “Debate” Debate
It seems that Senator John Thune, on the heels of his jaw dropping efforts to cut the legs out from under his fellow Republicans, is continuing with his efforts. In a very brief story on the internet version of The Rapid City Journal, this was reported this morning: Republican U.S. Sen. John Thune is taking no position on a fellow senator’s decision not to engage | Read More »
