Incredibly Stupid Video Portraying Libertarians

Tuesday, June 21st, 2011

A friend of mine posted this on her Facebook wall and saw it. The producers f this video have no clue as to what the Tea Party movement is about or what Libertarians believe in. We don't believe in no government. We advocate a Constitutionally LIMITED government. The difference is ...

Liberty versus Democracy

Thursday, February 24th, 2011

Walter E. Williams has a great column on "Democracy vs. Liberty" up on CNS news right now, and is definitely well worth the read. He is also right on the money on the differences between a Democracy and a Limited Constitutional Republic (that thing the Founding Founders gave us). Read ...

David Green Hates Patriotism

Thursday, September 23rd, 2010

Yesterday I ran across a piece on Big Piece by Mark Seavey concerning (and excerpting) an editorial by David Green that had been published earlier this week in the Daily Illini. Green was writing about a patriotic incident at a football game, where there was a military flyover and some ...

Music for Tea Parties

Saturday, August 28th, 2010

I ran across a couple of great music videos over on youtube, one courtesy to my pal Richard in San Diego (hat tip). The first one is "It's Time to Party" by Brion Butterbaugh: This is followed by a couple of great videos by Lisa Mei Norton with "A Revolution's Brewing" and ...

Kissing the 4th Amendment Goodbye

Friday, August 27th, 2010

I received an email from my friend Linda pointing me to this article on the Government's New Right. This is something of great concern to all of us, so I figured I should get it out there. Government agents can sneak onto your property in the middle of the night, put ...

Make Mine Freedom

Tuesday, October 20th, 2009

I am finding that this 1948 Cold War video is as relevant today as it was 60 years ago, especially when we have admitted Marxists being appointed to jobs in the Obama Administration, including Anita Dunn, who admits that one of her two favorite philosophers is Chairman Mao (mass-murdering dictator ...

Obama Political Failure #21

Tuesday, April 28th, 2009

The Left complained about Bush's alleged attempts to dismantle the Constitution, yet there is nary a peep about Obama's attempt to blatantly do exactly that. From the Telegraph in the UK: The Michigan vs Jackson ruling in 1986 established that, if a defendants have a lawyer or have asked for one ...

Joe the Plumber’s Illegally Accessed in Ohio

Saturday, October 25th, 2008

We're going techie today. It has been revealed in the Columbus Dispatch that Joe the Plumber's BMV records, and possibly other government databases, were illegally tapped for private information shortly after the debate. This should result in a serious criminal investigation. Here's the thing that disturbs me as a techie: Records ...

Obama, Joyce, and Gun Control

Tuesday, October 14th, 2008

When it comes to the right and keep arms, they are against it. From wikipedia: Since 2003, the Joyce Foundation has paid grants totaling over $12 million to gun control organizations. The largest single grantee has been the Violence Policy Center, which received $4,154,970 between 1996 and 2006, and calls for ...

The Tactics of Hate

Monday, October 13th, 2008

The Party of Hate is out in full force, and this time the goons were caught. from the Bee in Portland Oregon: The presidential campaign got a little too hot for two Portland men who were arrest early Saturday morning, Oct. 11, and charged with burning a John McCain campaign sign ...

Labor Day Protest Full Report

Thursday, September 4th, 2008

Labor Day, 2008. It was the day of the big pro-terrorism rally and parade. There was also a "Victory Over Terrorism" Rally going on at the same time. Knowing about some of the plans being put forth by the so-called RNC Welcoming Committee, I had some doubts about going up ...

St. Paul Protest and Counter-Rally

Taxes Are Revolting

Wednesday, September 3rd, 2008

Voting for Liberals, especially Liberal Democrats, is taxing. Let's face it; Barack Obama and Joe Biden haven't met a tax hike they didn't like. Same with Hillary and most of the other Democrats in Congress, as well as Democrats elected at State and local levels. They love raising taxes. They ...

Victory vs. Surrender Rally

Tuesday, September 2nd, 2008

It looks like Bill and I, and the rest of the Support the Troops folks, got out of the downtown area just before things turned into a war zone. I find it ironic that "anti-war" protestors, as they call themselves, would create a war zone in down town St. Paul. ...

Support the Troops Rally

Monday, September 1st, 2008

I went to the Support the Troops rally, which was slated as a counter to the pro-terrorist parade taking place in St. Paul today. Much fun was had. Many of the participants were Gold Star Parents, so emotions were rather high, but in a positive fashion. These are people who ...

Obama: Change We Don’t Need

Friday, August 29th, 2008

Every now and again I see a vehicle sporting a bumper sticker that proclaims "dissent is patriotic." This is, of course, targeted at the Bush Administration. Soon, though, the question may be "will dissent be possible, let alone Patriotic," if Barack Obama is elected president. This is a question that ...

Obama Attempts to Deny 1st Amendment Rights to AIP

Tuesday, August 26th, 2008

One of the responsibilities (and obligations) of the president, as well as members of Congress, is to defend and uphold the U.S. Constitution, all the time, every time; not just when it is convenient to them. Senator Obama has (once again) shown his true colors by attempting to deny certain ...

Berkeley Daily Moonbat On Bush’s Legacy

Friday, August 15th, 2008

The Berkeley Daily Moonbat has a truly interesting take on America, our government, our Constitution, and our history. I don't know what they are smoking out there in California, but it wouldn't surprise me if they got it from Barack Obama. The piece in the Daily Moonbat I am referring to ...

B/W on Gray Matters

Saturday, August 9th, 2008

This guy is an A-Number-One hoot. This video, explaining why he is a Conservative Republican, is right on the money, across the board. He sums it up with some very good points, starting with "War sucks!" to "There are things that suck way more than war: Slavery, genocide, and tyranny." ...

Black Hole Is Racist?

Friday, July 11th, 2008

There is a heap-big brouhaha going on in Dallas County over an incident in a meeting of the County Commissioners. From the Dallas City Hall blog: County commissioners were discussing problems with the central collections office that is used to process traffic ticket payments and handle other paperwork normally done by ...
