Obama on Missile Defense

Note the word, Defense, in the title. Now it seems that Obama has intentions of marginalizing our ability to defend ourselves against nuclear, biological, or conventional missile attacks. This move of Obama’s is, at best, misguided. At worst, it could … Continue reading

General Petraeus and Democrat Irony

Hot Air has it right. Remember the infamous Democratic ad about General Betray-us? Now, they’re counting on General Petraeus to save Obama’s “the right war”. Sweet irony! -Popgun

One More Thought on Gun Control

I would like to point out one single thing about the Supreme Court ruling in favor of gun rights. This decision will ultimately make a lot of difference to law-abiding folks who will now be able to defend themselves legally … Continue reading

Gun Control Philosophy

It’s interesting to me that liberal positions on gun control are based on how “everybody just knows” that guns kill people. You will hear them say “there’s going to be a bloodbath” and “this decision will kill a lot of … Continue reading

Obama on Controlling Debt

Obama said, at the G20 meeting a few days ago: “Somehow people say, why are you doing that, I’m not sure that’s good politics. I’m doing it because I said I was going to do it and I think it’s … Continue reading

Great news for gun rights! The Supreme Court rules that second amendment rights extend to all fifty states! Justice Alito said: “the right to keep and bear arms must be regarded as a substantive guarantee, not a prohibition that could … Continue reading

Obama is supposedly all in favor of international cooperation, yet when offered free of charge to have Dutch oil skimmers come to skim oil from the BP oil spill the gulf, they were turned away! These ships have a much … Continue reading

Party of NO

I keep seeing some commenters on other blogs referring to the Republicans as the “party of NO”. These commenters are missing the point: “NO” is the correct response when you have a radical ideologue in charge in the white house, … Continue reading

Putting an Inmate in Charge of the Asylum

Obama is appointing a man named Harold Hurtt to be the new director for the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Office of State and Local Coordination. This guy is a proponent of ‘sanctuary cities’ and other pro-illegal-immigration policies. It appears … Continue reading

Obama is a Statist

Statism: the belief that the state is greater than the sum of its parts (i.e. the people); that the people exist to serve the interests (and pay the bills) of the state; and that the people can (and should) rely … Continue reading

McChrystal Had Poor Judgement

The headline reads, “McChrystal showed poor judgement” so Obama fired him, or perhaps forced him to resign. If Obama can run General McChrystal off for poor judgement, logic dictates that we should be able to do the same thing to … Continue reading

Attack on Many Fronts

Obama and his liberal friends are attacking our freedom on many levels simultaneously. One of the most important areas of concern is the flow of information to the people. Real, honest news reporting is clearly endangered at present. Good information … Continue reading

Energy Sources

Like it or not, we are a technological civilization. We rely on high technology for our very survival, and this depends on high energy utilization. Our current energy sources are fossil fuel based, with some minor exceptions. Nuclear could have … Continue reading

Obama Is Going To Sue Arizona

So, now it is announced that Obama is going to prosecute Arizona for it’s anti-illegal-immigrant law. I think Obama is losing it. Here’s a couple of thoughts on the issue: The Arizona law is a watered down clone of federal … Continue reading

If Bobby Jindal Were President

If Bobby Jindal were president, I would bet the Gulf Coast Oil Disaster would have gotten immediate and complete attention of the government, judging by his activities of the last couple of months. Jindal seems to be a guy who … Continue reading

No More Agendas!

Next time around, let’s try electing a president who does not have any particular agenda. Obama seems to have come into office with the idea that he is going to mutate the U.S. into some sort of liberal, socialist fantasy-land, … Continue reading

Economic Impact

We are almost universally vilifying BP oil for the negligence and/or bad policies that resulted in the Gulf Oil Disaster. Deservedly. Leaving aside the ecological damage for the moment, I’d like to consider the economic impact alone for a moment. … Continue reading

Oval Office Speach

Besides all the other negative commentary, most of which I agree with, I note that Obama said this: “Countries like China are investing in clean energy jobs and industries that should be right here in America.” I will now note … Continue reading
