Gates Has Ayes

Defense Secretary Robert Gates said today that he agrees with Obama’s decision to replace Gen. Stanley McChrystal as the top US commander in Afghanistan. Of course he does. McChrystal just demonstrated what happens to people that disagree with Obama. Technically, McChrystal ‘resigned‘, but in actuality McChrystal ‘got resigned‘. There’s a big difference, and Gates didn’t … Continue reading

2010 Texas State Republican Party Platform

The Texas Republican Party has approved their 2010 platform, and I think that it might be better than the new school standards. This is a long post, but there is so much good stuff. A few choice excerpts: The embodiment of the conservative dream in America is Texas. We further support abolition of federal agencies … Continue reading

An Ounce of Prevention

I had an awesome idea for a post today. It was going to all about how the jury on ‘Anthropogenic Global Warming’ is still out and how we can’t spend billions and billions of dollars on some crackpot theory that a bunch of ‘climate scientists’ are pushing. At the same time as they’re getting tons … Continue reading

Cap and Trade and Irrationality

There’s a lot of talk now about how the Transocean Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf may make it easier for Obama to pass ‘cap-and-trade’ legislation. This legislation would cap the amount of pollution that is allowed in America, and then let companies buy and sell the ability to pollute. If your company pollutes … Continue reading

Gather Your Armies

Rick Barber, an Alabama Republican and candidate for Congress, has forced a runoff for the Republican nomination. The runoff is being held on Tuesday, July 13, and I strongly suggest that all Alabamans show up to the polls and exercise their American right to participate in their own governance. It’s our own form of participatory … Continue reading

Native Tea Partiers

There was an article in the Washington Post today about the lack of a central ‘Tea Party’ organizational structure. The main thrust of the article is that the lack of this central authority means that the power of the Tea Partiers is being diluted among a lot of causes and candidates. This is keeping it … Continue reading

The Future of the democrat Party

I don’t see the big deal. Thursday night, Keith Olbermann had an interview with Alvin Greene, the man who won the democratic nomination to run for the Senate in South Carolina. Here’s a link to the video (link). Watch it. You won’t be sorry. He seemed disconnected from reality, took most of his answers from … Continue reading

Lincoln Halts Halter

In a huge victory for Republicans, incumbent Senator Blanche Lincoln (D-AR) has defeated Bill Halter in the primary runoff in Arkansas. She will run against John Boozman (R-AR) in November. Halter was the darling of the ‘progressive’ crowd and the labor unions, who pumped millions of dollars into Arkansas in an attempt to buy the … Continue reading

Not Qualified For Office

Well, here’s an early taste of the 2010 election for you: Orly Taitz may well be the Republican candidate for California Attorney General. For those not in the know, Orly Taitz is perhaps the prototypical Birther. She’s racked up at least $20,000 in court fines for filing frivolous lawsuits challenging Barack Obama’s right to be … Continue reading

Known and Unknown

Yesterday, I quoted Sarah Palin’s facebook post regarding her new neighbor: Joe McGinniss. In the post, she quoted a Robert Frost poem: Mending Wall. Here it is: Mending Wall Something there is that doesn’t love a wall, That sends the frozen-ground-swell under it And spills the upper boulders in the sun, And makes gaps even … Continue reading
