I’ve long considered The New Yorker to be nothing more than quasi-intellectual crap and their latest cover does nothing change that opinion. The cover, which is supposed to be satirical spoof of the fears and lies about Obama, depicts Barack & Michelle sharing a celebratory fist bump in the oval office. There’s a portrait of […]
A McCain landslide?
The American Thinker is one my daily must reads and this mornings piece by Kyle-Anne Shiver “Could 2008 Be a McCain Landslide?” certainly has me thinking. I’m not ready to join Ms. Shiver out on that limb though, frankly I’m more pessimistic about John McCain’s prospects than she is. That said her analysis is definitely […]
My fellow conservatives…
My fellow conservatives, it’s time for us to face an ugly reality – we had a bunch of lackluster uninspiring presidential candidates to choose from and now we’re stuck with John McCain as our nominee. I’m no McCain fan, I don’t like him and I don’t trust him to stand up for conservative principles. But […]
Whoops, I’m back…
I had a minor database problem this morning and had to restore from a backup. Unfortunately any comments that were posted yesterday were lost. 🙁
Tell the RNC what you think…
Here’s your chance… Have at them 🙂 Here’s my top ten: A strong dollar – The value of the dollar has fallen over much of the past decade and we’re paying for it in the form of higher prices for oil and gas among other things. Stabilizing and strengthening the dollar will help reduce the […]
The first person to leave a comment revealing what this t-shirt says gets one free. Good luck.
Happy Birthday America!
In CONGRESS, July 4, 1776. The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of 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 […]
SCOTUS Gets It Right…
I have to admit I’m plesentantly surpised by the Supreme Courts ruling in District of Columbia v. Heller (07-290). The court, in my opinion, got it more or less right. I don’t know anyone who is arguing for an unfettered right to own firearms. The second amendment of the Constitution guarantees our right own firearms […]
It’s About Time…
Finally! We’re finally starting to see some signs of life from the Bush administration and republicans in congress. Unfortunately, what we’re seeing is another half measure… I’m all for increasing domestic oil production and building new refineries, but those measures won’t have a significant short term impact on the price we pay at the pump. […]
This guy gets it… Unfortunately none of our elected leaders seem to. Pass it on.
I can’t think of a better tribute to Old Glory and ideals it represents than “Ragged Old Flag” by Johnny Cash.
Race to Zero? How About Bad Idea…
I’ve been busy and haven’t been in a blogging mood over the last couple of days but I thought I’d point out a couple of great posts by David Harley and Randy Abrams at ESET’s Threat Center blog. They’re both about the Race to Zero contest being held during the Defcon 16 conference. What is […]
Congress To Blame For High Oil Prices?
That’s what Mackubin Thomas Owens says in an OpEd piece in today’s Wall Street Journal. Gasoline prices are through the roof and Americans are angry. Someone must be to blame and the obvious villain is “Big Oil” with its alleged ability to gouge consumers and achieve unconscionable, “windfall” profits. Congress is in a vile mood, […]
Lest We Forget… Memorial Day
To every Soldier, Sailor, Airman and Marine… Thank you and may God bless you and keep you safe.
Mad As Hell…
I was going to post this as a reply to a commenter who said in part “…I fear if Americans don’t wake up and get involved this Congress [will] do what the terrorist could not…” but I thought I’d expand on it a little and make a post out of it. I don’t think its […]
