We just got back from our vacation in Durango, Colorado; had a great time, but for some car trouble. Now, a few days later, some nut-job decides to get in the news in a big way by murdering or injuring … Continue reading

A group of representatives of the gay community were invited to the White House by Obama. They were photographed flipping off a portrait of President Reagan – an act they seemed to be proud of. This is pretty odd behavior … Continue reading

Evil Flees the Light

It seems clear enough, to me: Attorney General Eric Holder has something to hide, and President Obama is protecting him. I can see no other reason for Holder’s obstructionism regarding “Fast and Furious”, and Obama’s willingness to use executive privilege. … Continue reading

Liberals Are Violent People

Joy Behar, a person who deserves zero respect, wants to see Romney’s house burn down. Looks like it is just fine for liberals to use violent imagery, but God forbid a conservative put target symbols on a map! Those bloody … Continue reading

President Obama said the “private sector is doing fine”, and, “Overall, the private sector has been doing a good job creating jobs.” Of course! What was I thinking! That explains why food stamp use has doubled since Obama took office! … Continue reading

Types of Issues

It occurs to me that there are two fundamental types of issues in play in the games of politics. The most common is an issue that is largely a matter of passion. For instance, I personally am pro-life, and I … Continue reading

Obama’s New Logo

Obama’s new logo is “Forward”. He sure as heck doesn’t want you to look back at what he’s been doing the last four years…. “Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain!” – The Wizard of Oz (who was … Continue reading
