Speaker John Boehner: ‘So Be It’

Progressives are up-in-arms over the loss of government jobs that will occur due to the kinds of deep budget cuts House Republicans are pushing.  House Speaker John Boehner’s response to them was clear, truthful and responsible In the last two years, under President Obama, the federal government has added 200,000 new federal jobs.

President Obama, Why aren’t we..

Oratory, promises, statements, pleas for acceptance.  Obama has worn his heart on his sleeve, much like the liberals that slaughter the rear-end of their automobiles with stickers to espouse their love for the killing of the unborn, the forcing of the will of the government on us all and whatever new oppressive piece of false-front selfishness shows up on the Huffington Post ...

GOP reveals hypocrisy with Patriot Act vote

Both parties in the House failed to muster enough votes to extend controversial provisions of the Patriot Act on February 8, which required a two-thirds majority. Some commentators have chosen to focus on the lack of discipline within the parties; both the Obama administration and GOP leadership favor the extension, but neither was able to whip enough congressmen onto the ...

Countering Obama’s Philosophy

Ever wonder where Barack (Barry) Insane Obama gets his perverted philosophy? Do you find yourself scratching your head every time Obama waxes eloquent on the glories of socialism? Do you wonder how any rational person could arrive at the really “out-there” conclusions that seem to spew unhindered from the cerebral cortex of our dictator wannabe? Well, wonder no more. Let’s ...

Progressives Push To Require .. DOG INSURANCE

There is no other phrase for this liberal mess-of-a-proposal other than “WTF, Over?” State Rep. Ruth Jones McClendon (D-San Antonio) has introduced a bill that would require any Texan who owns a male dog which weighs 20 pounds or more and is not neutered to have an insurance policy covering injuries or damage caused by that dog when it is ...

Even Conservative Bloggers Miss the Point on Spending Cuts Sometimes

I really like Allahpundit’s work and agree with him on most things. Friday he put together a post that makes a reasoned argument for why budget cuts can never happen. Just 29 percent of tea partiers are prepared to cut Social Security compared to 18 percent who want to toss even more money into the entitlement sinkhole. GOP Rep. Tom Latham warned ...

North Carolina City Outlaws Smoking .. Outside

Driving home today, I heard on the radio something I had feared for some time – the Raleigh city council voted to ban smoking in “public parks and green ways”.  I don’t smoke so my concern is not about my ability to smoke in outside.  My concern is that another governing body has found a way to strip another freedom ...

Individual Liberties and the Slippery Slope

Ah, the “slippery slope” metaphor.  Over-used, sometimes misused and rarely is it effectively used – I hope I don’t manage to make those same mistakes. Individual liberties were of prime concern to the founding fathers.  The Constitution makes it difficult for the government to infringe upon the rights of the individual and progressives find this incredibly frustrating. So what is ...

Some in GOP Still Think Earmarks are OK

There was an election last year.. right?  Republicans got the message from us on spending .. right?  Perhaps not all of them.

Three Republican cardinals on the House Appropriations Committee say ...

Progressives are pointing to Arizona and using it is an example as to why Americans have far too many liberties – we might just hurt ourselves. A New York Times article demonstrates how the left is using the horrific tragedy in Arizona to push Progressive agenda items: gun control. ..[Arizona’s] gun laws are among the most lenient, allowing even a ...

Why Conservative Legislators Must Keep Obamacare Repeal in the Media

Conservative law makers are continuing to talk up the repeal or replacement of Unfordable Patient Rationing of Care Act of 2010 (artistic license claimed).  Liberal law makers are doing everything they can to make it a negative against the right-leaning legislators. John Boehner may very well lead the House to a near veto-proof vote to repeal Obamacare.  The Senate, under a ...
