Gun Rights and Obamacare

A couple interesting articles from NewsMax. First, Bill Clinton is now telling all of the anti-gun democrats and liberals to lighten up a bit. As he puts it, “A lot of these people live in a world very different from the world lived in by the people proposing these things. I know because I come […]

16 Trillion

I’ve decided that’s how I’m going to respond to everything the next time I have a “debate” with a liberal. It doesn’t happen very often (the debate, that is), but it always frustrates me to no end. More than once I’ve had to deal with responses like, “You obviously know your facts and figures, BUT […]

Kill the Dollar. Again

Hmm. This has been attempted a few times in the past. I wonder how well it’s going to work this time. I’m not sure why they think this time will be any different. Congressional auditors say doing away with dollar bills entirely and replacing them with $1 coins could save taxpayers nearly $4.4 billion over […]

An Open Challenge to Warren Buffet

I believe Thomas did mention “bread and circuses” somewhere in his writings, but not in this (the current entitlement-heavy political environment) context. Here it is… A […]

Romney’s choice of Ryan was almost inexplicable. A good conservative, Ryan was unqualified for the job of vice president, and […]

Vindale Research Sucks

So, I decided to join one of those online survey programs called Vindale Research. It looked legit. I was wrong. About Vindale Research Vindale Research is an online research program that claims to offer rewards (including cash) for filling out surveys. I assume they are contracted by various companies or organizations to do the surveys. […]

Wow. More Obama Stories That WIll Curl Your Toes

I have never been so against a political candidate before in my life. I was never a fan of Bill Clinton either, but I could at least tolerate him. From NewsMax: …Obama was a member of the far left [ACORN affiliated] New Party and also signed a “contract” promising to publicly support and associate himself […]
