Marines Unwelcome In Berkeley

Thursday, January 31st, 2008

Berkeley is living up to its hard-earned moniker. Berzerkeley. The City council has voted 6-3 branding the U.S. Marine Corps recruitment center as "uninvited and unwelcome intruders." It also voted 8-1 to grant the hard-left organization Code Pink a designated parking space in front of the USMC office and sound ...

Obama: The Jimmy Carter Connection

Wednesday, January 30th, 2008

The Wall Street Journal has an interview of America's worst president in history, Jimmy Carter, where he speaks highly of Barack Obama. In it, Carter states: "Obama will be almost automatically a healing factor in the animosity now that exists, that relates to our country and its government" I am not sure ...

Battleboro Moonbats On Bush

Monday, January 28th, 2008

There are Moonbats in Battleboro, Vermont. IN a show of utter contempt for our constitution, residents of Battleboro are pushing an initiative to have President Bush and Vice President Cheney arrested and charged with war crimes, perjury, and other assorted charges should the Dynamic duo ever appear in this small ...

Comrade Chavez Seizes Food In Venezuela

Thursday, January 24th, 2008

It's been awhile since I have had anything to write about Comrade Hugo Chavez, the Thief of Caracas. He has made the news in a big way today by delivering up on threats made last year to nationalize food distribution in Venezuela. From TV One News: Venezuela's top food company has accused ...

Fred Thompson Drops Out of 2008 Race

Tuesday, January 22nd, 2008

Fred Thompson announced today that he is withdrawing his candidacy for the presidency of these United States. Egads! What's a conservative to do? Couldn't he have hung in there another two weeks to at least see how he performs in some of the other upcoming primaries and caucuses? Okay, I ...

Brits Nail al-Qaeda Online Propagandist

Wednesday, January 16th, 2008

I read with interest about the arrest and conviction in the U.K. of Younes Tsouli, an al-Qaeda linked IT student who was responsible for pushing al-Qaeda propaganda, including videos of the kidnapping and murder of hostages such as Nick Burg in Iraq. Tsouli, the son of a Moroccan diplomat, was ...

Hillary: White House Like Prison

Tuesday, January 15th, 2008

Hillary Clinton, after being handed a series of softballs, tells Tyra Banks living in the White House is like living in a prison. How the heck did she come up with that comparison? From the LA Times: Not that it's going to diminish her ambition to live there again, but Hillary Clinton ...

Fair Tax Plan

Thursday, January 10th, 2008

I have been giving some thoughts to the "Fair Tax" plan being pushed by various Libertarians and others. As it is a consumption tax, I am, in general, favorable to it, especially as a replacement to the current tax on income and property. Based on what I know, and feel ...

Liberals Want To End Electoral College

Wednesday, January 9th, 2008

It seems to me that the Liberal-Left will do anything to insure that their guy wins. The Star Tribune is running a piece on the "National Popular Vote Interstate Compact," and what a dozy that proposition is. The gist of the compact (or treaty, according to dictionary lookup) ...

Obama Disrespects U.S. Flag

Tuesday, January 8th, 2008

I friend of mine mentioned to me that Barack Obama does not render appropriate honors to the flag. I found this surprising that a U.S. Senator and front-runner for the Democratic nomination to our Nation's highest office would not render appropriate honors to the flag. By this, I mean, in the case ...

Hillary Gets Her Donkey Handed To Her By Obama

Thursday, January 3rd, 2008

The Iowa Caucus has spoken: Obama wins in that state for the Democratic Party and Huckabee wins for the GOP. This is a mixed bag of nuts for me. I am not surprised by the outcome. I am delighted that Hillary got her Donkey handed to her by Obama. ...

Global Warming: Natural Causes #6

Thursday, January 3rd, 2008

I read with great interest an opinion piece in RIAN by Dr. Oleg Sorokhtin called "A cold Spell Soon to Replace Global Warming." It opens with "Stock up on fur coats and felt boots!" and based on Dr. Sorokhtin's analysis, and what this year's winter is like thus far, I'd ...

My Current Thoughts On The Candidates

Wednesday, January 2nd, 2008

Now that 2008 is finally here and we are officially into the election cycle, it's time I get off the bench and be serious about who I like and don't like for President. As can be easily guessed, there isn't anyone on the Democrat side that I would support. Not because ...
