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

An Easy Goal

I suppose that I’m supposed to be happy that the US team tied the England team (1-1) in their first World Cup game this year. I mean, I’m happy that they didn’t lose, and I’m happy that they outperformed expectations, but I’m still finding it difficult to get excited by soccer. Soccer is okay. (Also … 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

I Never Thought Of That

Sometimes you hear an idea so perfectly formed that you wonder why it’s not already the common wisdom. It seems obvious in retrospect, and yet it’s truth has eluded all but one genius. I found the image on the right on the internet today. I was stunned. This explains everything. Why BP was allowed to … 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

I Apologize, But Only If You Take Offense

I am confused. And outraged. Mainly outraged, and then confused. South Carolina State Senator John M. “Jake” Knotts Jr. (whew!) said last Thursday on a local radio show: “We already got one raghead in the White House — we don’t need another in the governor’s mansion … She’s a raghead that’s ashamed of her religion … 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

Creepy Stalker

Joe McGinniss, ‘journalist’, has moved in next door to the Palin family in Wasilla, Alaska. He plans to write a book about them, and moved to Wasilla for five months to gather primary source material. At least, that’s what he says. What Sarah says is something completely different. From her facebook page: “Spring has sprung … Continue reading
