Miss Ann Thrope is not very political. She would, for instance, never let her conservatism get in the way of watching The West Wing, no matter how many times I razzed her about it. She even once stupidly said it doesn’t even matter much who wins the Presidency. (Don’t worry I never let her live [...]
I am still in a state of shock and dismay. I think Robert Stacy McCain may be right http://spectator.org/archives/2012/11/07/doomed-beyond-all-hope-of-rede , and Mark Steyn. We chose decline with our eyes wide open. My best friend, who usually avoids discussing politics at all costs, posted this on her facebook page. I think it is a great summary: hat [...]
Gov. Romney has flat out said the Palestinians do not want peace. Since every “peace” agreement has led to more slaughter by the Palestinians you would think this would be an obvious statement. But even the Republicans in DC have been running from this basic bit of truth for decades. http://www.jpost.com/USPresidentialrace/Article.aspx?id=285410 It took a [...]
The mess that Obama is always whining about is as to nothing compared to the mess Romney will inherit, if we are lucky enough to get rid of Obama. Reagan came with a reputation. A reputation based mostly on the media’s lies and spins. Ironically the media’s fabrication of the trigger happy cowboy worked in [...]
I have ranted and raved against the “fiscal conservative, social liberal” model many, many times in this blog already. But the point of that model is that everyone in the country claims to be fiscal conservatives. And as I have explained again and again, that’s not true. Everyone wants to claim to be responsible with [...]
YAY!! We beat the Chinese in Olympic medals, something we never could do to the USSR. How exciting how thrilling! Course we drove the Soviet Union into a bankruptcy that ultimately toppled it. Now China owns trillions of dollars of our National Debt. How do you say “he who laughs last” in Chinese?
Powerline has an excellent look at Gov. Romney’s tour through Isreal and his speech there. http://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2012/07/our-enduring-alliance.php If there is anything purely about principle in American politics today it is Republican support of Israel. Now I am both a Republican and Jewish; so I can tell you it is a very lonely description. No Republican [...]
I loved Sally Kimball. Yes I know the books were called Encyclopedia Brown. But I was in it for Sally, the tough, tomboy taking on the neighborhood bullies, so her brainy friend could solve his cases in peace. I especially loved it when Sally would solve the crimes herself, brains and brawn you had [...]
San Diego, CA. Saturday July 7, 9:00 a.m. A Tea Party to rally against Obamacare. At the County Administration Center 1600 Pacific Coast Highway. https://www.facebook.com/events/105755546234943/ Be there or be a serf.
Victor Davis Hanson drags conservatives away from their ridiculous calling-defeat-a-victory party and throws them into a cold shower. It is the erudite Professor at his very best: http://www.nationalreview.com/corner/304411/not-so-good-news-victor-davis-hanson As for me: after 2008 I will never again underestimate the American voters taste for other people’s money.
Ann Althouse chooses to focus on what I can only see is a slap in the face from the Chief Justice: http://althouse.blogspot.com/2012/06/it-is-not-our-job-to-protect-people.html This quote from the opinion: “It is not our job to protect the people from the consequences of their political choices.” Well there you have it people. John Roberts says if you vote for [...]
President Obama has many times said that the economy isn’t fixed because it was more broken then he knew. http://www.rushlimbaugh.com/daily/2011/12/14/huge_see_i_told_you_so_obama_says_economy_was_worse_than_we_knew He has repeatedly said that 3 years is not long enough for him to fix an economy that was damaged beyond his ken. In other words he was unprepared and unqualified to be President. Well [...]
It is probably pointless to imagine the California voters will wake up and defeat Feinstein this November. But the point of this blog is to support conservatives whever we find them, even the wasteland of Greece-West known as California. Elizabeh Emken is conservative, committed to ending the waste in DC. She is running for Senate, [...]
Instapundit has been linking to a lot of stories about prejudice against Mormons: http://pjmedia.com/instapundit/144097/ I must say though, I can actually understand having negative feelings about Mormons. After all a Mormon murdered Robert Kennedy because of his support for Israel. The Olympic games became an armed camp because of the Momons who killed the [...]
http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0512/76799.html You are wasting your time hating Chris Hayes for his comments on the soldiers who defend his freedom. He is being honest. He is stating outright what every liberal I know thinks, but no liberal wants to go on television and tell the world. Soldiers are heroes when they follow Obama’s orders but [...]
Cassandra has always been a heroine of mine. So I can’t help but enjoy stories such as this: http://worldnews.msnbc.msn.com/_news/2012/05/16/11729795-greeks-withdraw-894-million-in-a-day-is-this-beginning-of-a-run-on-banks?lite Yes I know the collapse of the European economy will be bad for all of us. But watching the Euro-Socialists run out of other people’s money is so much fun I want to munch popcorn while [...]
