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

Poll: What’s the best way to deal with the census?

I haven’t posted in the last few days, and I apologize. I’ve been laying low. A census worker came to my house because I didn’t turn in the form they mailed to me, so I had to hide. They even went next door to see if my neighbors would rat me out, but they (thankfully) … 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

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

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

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

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
