George Zimmerman Acquitted

July 14, 2013

Last evening the six-member jury deliberating the guilt of George Zimmerman found him not guilty, acquitting him for the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.  The Blaze has great coverage of the last 24 hours, as this story keeps developing. Having been on a million juries (that’s what I get for voting in every election!), [...]

Obama Redux

November 7, 2012

At about 11:14pm last evening, Fox News called Ohio for Obama.  Only being a matter of time before the gig was up and Obama’s reelection was official, I subsequently went to bed with a splitting headache and a deep sense of foreboding about the direction the American people are choosing to go.  I’ve spent the [...]

Colonel Allen West For Congress!

December 16, 2009

I only heard yesterday about this clip from Lieutenant Colonel Allen West, who’s running for Congress in Florida’s 22nd Congressional district.  If we could get more Republicans speaking like this (and willing to put their money where their mouth is), I might actually unclip my nose when voting for them: I’m not ready to literally [...]

Transgender Bathrooms Causing a Stir in Florida

January 10, 2009

Such is the way of things in Gainsville, FL.  Lately, Gainsville has had a history of gay-friendly measures, but the latest permutation has caused a stir — transgender bathrooms.  Wait, wait, though!  They are not constructing new facilities, the city commission are just telling the roughly 100 transgender residents that they can use whichever bathroom facility they feel most comfortable [...]

Democrats Attempt Ohio Voter Suppression

September 24, 2008

Despite all of the talk, it has been well documented that there was no evidence of voter suppression of Democrats, minorities, or others in 2000 by the Republicans or Bush Campaign, although there was a concerted effort to suppress military absentee ballots by the Gore campaign.  Now, in 2008, the Ohio Democrat Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner [...]

Dems Meet to Discuss Michigan and Florida Today

May 31, 2008

One simple question:  if this is how the Dems run their party, what’ll it be like when they run the country? Of course, we know the answer to that question, so let’s try to prevent that shall we?  The party that picked on Bush and the Republicans for eight years about mysterious “missing votes” in [...]

Rudy Giuliani’s Good Strategy

January 30, 2008

Rudy Giuliani made the right decision when he decided to skip Iowa, New Hampshire, and South Carolina to focus on Florida. The fact that his strategy was unsuccessful does not change the fact that the alternative would have been even more difficult to pull off. At this moment, the Republican Party is not a conservative [...]

It’s Not Over

January 24, 2008

The media would have you believed that the Republican nomination is all-but over, and John McCain is the nominee.  What this is is more of a case of the media hoping that their protege Republican will get the nod based on his perceived strength against the Democrats and his inevitability, much in the same way [...]
