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 […]
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, 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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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.
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, […]
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 […]
I’ve been thinking about what I’d like a candidate for office this year to stand for… Here’s my list: A strong dollar – Over the last decade the dollar has fallen in value and we’re paying for it in the form of higher prices for food, oil and gas among other things. Strengthening the dollar […]
Here are two great columns from The Wall Street Journal. If you haven’t already read them you should. The first, The Republican Health-Care Surrender by Dick Armey details one of the biggest problems Republicans are facing… Their complete surrender on health care. I don’t want government run health care I have private health care insurance […]
It gives me no joy to say this but the Republican Party is headed for a fall… They’re going to lose the White House and more seats in the house and senate in November unless they get a clue. They’ve alienated the party’s conservative base, they have no agenda, no ideas, and no clue about […]
The only thing worse than a trip to the gas pump these days is listening to John McCain, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama talk about energy policy. John McCain and Hillary Clinton both say they’ll bring us relief at the pump with a temporary moratorium on the 18.4 cent per gallon federal gas tax. To […]
Can we put an end to the recession talk at least for now? The last time I checked a recession was defined as two or more consecutive quarters of negative growth. So far we haven’t had a single quarter of negative growth so all this talk of a recession is, well, premature. Make no mistake […]
Take a couple of minutes to read Jerry Bowyer’s “Don’t Blame the Markets” OpEd in the New York Sun today it does a good job laying out how we got to where we are in the current sub prime mortgage mess.
