Guest Post: “RINO” vs. “Moderate Republican” | JSL Consulting

Northern_Spotted_Owl.USFWS-thumb

My buddy John LaRosa has a compelling new post at his blog: “RINO” vs. “Moderate Republican” | JSL Consulting.   In case you haven’t noticed, there is a battle going on, and I’m not talking about the “war on” poverty, drugs, illiteracy or terror. The conflict I’m talking about is taking place within the Republican Party. In […]

Keep the Faith

Keep the Faith Header

If there ever was a time to start a movement, that time has come. Did we really think that our everlasting freedom would be won by a few funny tweets, a handful of hashtag hijacks, and a charismatic duo in Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan? To believe that freedom could be won so easily does […]

Will Ferrell Wants To Eat Your Hair, For Obama

Will Ferrell Title

Will Ferrell will grovel on a billiards table, wearing a lounge suit made from the finest threads, as long as you agree to vote for Barack Obama. Seriously, he’ll make you a meal of roast flamingo and seared perch. He’ll bungee jump from the Golden Gate Bridge wearing nothing but an ill-fitting trash bag. He’ll […]

13-Year-Old Jenny Gives Report Cards to Obama and Romney

13-Year-Old Jenny Gives Report Cards to Obama and Romney

A brave girl. If you want to understand how brave, read the comments at YouTube. Jenny is a 13-year-old 8th grader who’s been interested in politics for a couple of years. She was confused about the claims of the Democrats and the claims of the Republicans. So, she decided to look at the facts and […]

Fed Up Veteran Has Had Enough of Obama

vet

Dateline Saturday, October 20, 2012 – Portland, Oregon:  (language warning) While out canvassing with the Oregon TEA Party for a local conservative candidate, I run across a veteran who has had enough of President Obama. He’s got a stickered up truck that says it all. While I might not agree with the civility or tone […]

Sugary Treats

Sugary Treats

The big news this morning isn’t just Obama lying, but the “moderator” as well. Don’t blame Candy. She’s merely doing what she’s been trained to do. It used to be that reporters reported the news, now they’re told in journalism school to interpret the news for their hapless audience. Thus, stepping in to the middle […]

Who Are The Real Obstructionists?

Who Are The Real Obstructionists?

Obstructionism for me, but not for thee … From Revealing Politics: Obama ralliers exiting an Obama event at Ohio State University are asked by Caleb Bonham about what they think of so-called “obstructionist” politics. Many of the Obama supporters blamed Republicans and denounced obstructionist tactics. The most ardent activists called for Republicans to cross the […]

‘Tolerant’ Leftists Vandalizing Romney Yard Signs, Keying Cars, Threatening Riots If Romney Wins

The Obamabots are getting desperate and showing their true colors: violent, intent on censoring their opposition, with no respect for private property or others’ free speech rights. In North Carolina, Romney lawn signs have been vandalized with spray paint: In Illinois, an arsonist set fire to the Romney sign in one man’s front yard: In […]

I’ll be providing commentary and observation as well in the comment section. Just to whet your whistle a bit regarding some of the expected themes of the debate tonight, focusing on […]

There Are Two Paths

There Are Two Paths

My friend Ben Howe hits it out of the park again.

In the words of Andrew Breitbart, “There are two paths,” which we must choose between in this election.

Which path will we choose? Will we choose individual freedom and the free market? Or will we choose socialism and a culture that expects government to take care of it? These are not pastel colors or shades of gray. These are two distinctly different choices with two distinct destinations.

Obama’s Redistribution Video

Obama’s Redistribution Video

The same day that the Romney “47% video” hit the news (which “mysteriously” has several minutes missing), a 1998 Obama video also was released in which he embraces redistribution. But what does that mean? Take a listen: I Spy Minute for Wed., Sept. 19, 2012. Or read the transcript, below… @iSpyRadioShow #iSpyMin #       #       # […]

Romney and the 47 Percent « The Liberty Bullhorn

7087782975_bdbb9f0bf2

Over at The Liberty Bullhorn, SR Larson makes the strong case that the “47 Percent Video” was a gift to conservatives. This is an argument the Left does not want to wage, because they know they’ll lose. We have all heard about the now-infamous video where Governor Romney talks about the 47 percent of Americans […]

The 47%

The 47%

Once again, a video surfaces that the mainstream media is sure will destroy Romney. But that sure wasn’t my reaction: when you speak the truth, you don’t run from it. You embrace it. Take a listen: I Spy Minute for Tues., Sept. 18, 2012 Or read the transcript, below… @ispyradioshow #iSpyMin #       #       # In […]

    Two citizen initiative campaign submitted boxloads of petitions by the Friday deadline, and both appear to have an excellent shot at making the statewide ballot this fall.

  • The Spirit of ‘76 July 4, 2015
    On July 4th, 1826, a Washington newspaper published one of the most poignant letters penned in American history. An ailing Thomas Jefferson regretfully declined an invitation to celebrate the 50th anniversary of American independence with the citizens of the nation’s capital. “[T]o be present with them,” he wrote, “as one of the surviving signers of […]
  • The Detection Club July 4, 2015
    And in those days, a genius arose among the people, and she taught them greatly the ways of … um, well, the writing of mystery novels. However much it was clearly a breakthrough of small but real genius, what Agatha Christie achieved in 1920 with her first book, The Mysterious Affair at Styles, is hard […]
  • Oregon Starts Mileage-Based User Fees July 2, 2015
    Yesterday, the Oregon Department of Transportation began accepting applications from volunteers willing to switch from paying gas taxes to mileage-based user fees. The experimental program is limited to 5,000 volunteers and apparently the applications are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Oregon’s gasoline tax is 30 cents a gallon, so if your car gets 30 […]
  • WiFi Yes, V2V No July 1, 2015
    A little-known conflict over the electromagnetic spectrum could shape self-driving cars for years to come. On one side is “an ecosystem of companies” that have developed vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communications systems and the National Highway Traffic Safety Commission (NHTSC), which wants to mandate such systems in all cars and trucks, which together want the Federal Communications […]
  • Austerians or Common-Sensicans? June 30, 2015
    The Greek debt crisis has Paul Krugman waging a verbal war against those he called Austerians, meaning economists who think the solution to being up-to-your-ears in debt is to cut back on spending. (It’s also a pun on Austrian economics, which generally opposes government intervention in just about anything.) “Greece was overspending, but not by […]
