[Categories: VOTING, POLITICS, CONSERVATISM.] [Following is an email received from a California friend, critical thinker, and frustrated voter. Feel free to reblog or email his message as you see fit.] Dear Voter I have had an increasing sense that the Republican Party has moved dramatically left in my lifetime. They have become a Party that … Continue reading A Frustrated Republican
We Should Be Embarrassed by the Sequester Debate
Here is a new op-ed by two people whose intellect and opinions I very highly respect. I have read their book Free Market Revolution twice and I strongly recommend you read this 221-page book... carefully. OP-ED We Should Be Embarrassed by the Sequester Debate If you're concerned about economic growth the cuts are far too … Continue reading We Should Be Embarrassed by the Sequester Debate
I Love Sarah (updated)
Well, I LIKE Sarah. Palin, that is. I just stumbled upon this news item about her speech at CPAC: Palin re-emerges to lash GOP establishment and Obama alike Lest I forget my conservative and evermore conservatarian roots I had to bring this up. I like Sarah's ability to stick in the proverbial, verbal, knife-sharp quip … Continue reading I Love Sarah (updated)
One More Event to Add to the “Been There, Survived That” List
At the risk of my meandering blog offending snow people, photogs, and fashionable women, I too “am a conservative foremost, not a Republican.” I like this man’s writing.
After months of threats, and dire predictions of doom and widespread chaos should these spending cuts take effect, President Obama still had to stand before the nation yesterday and formally announce that the sequestration cuts had begun.
A noteworthy fact is that Obama has laid the blame for this deal squarely on the doorstep of the Republicans in Congress, quite possibly the most beleaguered group in the nation’s capital city. What is even more interesting, and revolting, is that the media has given the President a free pass once again. True, a few outlets and “news-spinners” are beginning to question the President’s approach, but a vast majority are still squarely aligned with the progressive agenda, and join the President in proclaiming that the Republicans just need to be a little more tractable and willing to compromise.

While catching up (discarding actually) recent digital back-issues, I came across this House Editorial (unsigned piece (who DOES … Continue reading T.O.T.N. (Thoughts On The News) 24 Feb. 2013.

Politics and the Brain
A fellow blogger I follow, conservative judging from her posts, recently posted this reference: Red brain, blue brain: Republicans & Democrats Process Risk Differently "A team of political scientists and neuroscientists has shown that liberals and conservatives use different parts of the brain when they make risky decisions, and these regions can be used to … Continue reading Politics and the Brain
Reading Ann Coulter
She's smart, very smart. She's good looking. She has a supremely acerbic, acidic, wryly humorous wit. She's in love with herself I suspect. I know I am. In love with myself that is, or very very fond of at least. A healthy dose of egoism along with a pinch, dash, or splash of egotism might … Continue reading Reading Ann Coulter
Look Look. See Sarah Palin.
See Sarah Run. Stop Sarah Stop. Don't Run, Sarah, Don't Run. Some Republicans urge Palin not to run If I have to I will say it a thousand times between now and 2012. We who dearly and seriously do NOT want to see Obama elected for a second term must NOT allow Sarah Palin to … Continue reading Look Look. See Sarah Palin.
