Pelosi Unhinged on the House Floor

August 3, 2014

Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi got a bit unhinged when Pennsylvania Congressman, Republican Tom Marino, called her out for playing politics with the border by indicating that the Democrats had all the power back in 2009-10 and did nothing about these problems.  Here’s a Fox News interview with Marino on his reaction to Pelosi: While [...]

Sparring Over Common Core

April 18, 2014

While scouring the Internets this morning, I noticed RCP had two contrasting views on Common Core — the national education standards 45 states adopted without looking at them first. David Brooks takes the Ruling Class apologist’s view, basically that one should just get over it and embrace the change. Erick Erickson takes the skeptical view, [...]

Tea Party Turns Five

February 27, 2014

From September 2008 to February 2009 nearly $1.6 trillion America didn’t have had been spent by our government: TARP to bailout Wall Street ($700 billion), plus the auto bailouts ($80 billion), plus the Stimulus to bailout Democrat constituencies ($787 billion).  When would it stop?  Who would end up paying for it?  Anyone paying attention was [...]

Congress: Obamacare and Airport Delays for Thee, but Not for Me

April 25, 2013

One really doesn’t know what to believe from our elected officials nowadays, but rest assured that any benefit they can endow on themselves will be baked into any cake.  That being said, a story hit the Internets this week that apparently high-level confidential talks have been going on for months about exempting members of Congress [...]

Rift on Paul Filibuster Mirrors Rift in GOP

March 7, 2013

After 13 hours of free airtime tearing apart the Administration’s vagueness on drone strikes within the US by Republican Senator Rand Paul, John McCain and Lindsey Graham shrugged off the whole endeavor as “ridiculous” this morning.  Paul was actually railing on the time it took the Administration to answer such a simple question, considering its [...]

Secession Advocates Get Their Response From DC

January 13, 2013

I hope that all those secession petitions sent to the White House are merely symbolic, and that the people involved don’t think seriously about it.  If so, they are just as bad as the statists who want to ignore the constitutional process for their own ends.  In a re-airing of a 150-year-old settled argument, the [...]

April 13, 2012

As a public school teacher I have lots of time off, including this week which happens to be my Spring Break.  Some of my colleagues go on vacations to various destinations, some don’t.  Like nearly everyone else it’s all a matter of choice based on certain realities, mainly one’s ability to pay for one’s vacation.

This clip definitely needs to be added to the echo chamber if you haven’t see it yet.  It’s about 15 minutes, but completely worth it especially towards the end: If you haven’t got the time to watch, Florida Senator Marco Rubio, everyone’s favorite potential GOP VP pick next year, clearly expresses reality in the face [...]

July 18, 2011

Here’s an article I read today which exposes what the author calls “gentry liberalism”:  the movement over the last 40 years of the Democrat Party away from the regular guy towards specific corporate interests.  The date bears this out — in a period of Democrat political dominance Wall Street has done very well, while Main [...]

Paul Ryan’s Road Map and Why Republicans Suck

July 24, 2010

I used to call myself a Republican, but haven’t for a number of years now.  The answer is simple:  they suck.  A friend aptly once described our two parties as the Stupid Party (Republicans) and the Evil Party (Democrats):  “stupid” because Republicans never miss an opportunity to jump on their own sword even in the [...]
