Republicans want to kill grandma. Republicans want to kill sick people. Republicans want poor people to starve and die. Republicans want blacks dead or enslaved. Republicans want hispanics imprisoned or gone. Republicans want the rich to get richer and the poor to get poorer. Republicans want to poison the water and destroy the land and [...]

Headline brought to you by the Redundant Department of Redundancy. I remember reading a Liberal Mainstream Media (there’s that redundancy again) report concerning the TEA Party and how “nearly forty percent” hail from “The South” and how horrible that is! The South is taking over the nation! Run for the hills cities! We should discount [...]
HT Foxfier Paul in Houston has a story about local volunteers coming to the aid of the mostly volunteer firefighters who were battling a nearby wildfire, and FEMA’s ham-handed attempts at dictatorially taking over. (As an aside, I have family in Magnolia who knew people who were evacuated from their homes due to this fire.) [...]
I previously reported on the voting public’s positions on various issues and their stance opposing Democrat positions. A plurality (44 percent) are fiscal Conservatives while a small minority (11 percent) are fiscal Liberals. 2/3 want the border controlled before dealing with any other possible illegal immigrant solutions. The numbers regarding educating illegal immigrants gets more [...]
I have a challenge for you Liberals. I know you loathe challenges, so much so that you have even refused to allow scorekeeping in some organized youth sports. But try to get over your fear of challenges to accept my challenge. I have a single rule for you to follow by letter and spirit: You [...]
Democrats are pinning their hopes on making a comeback after their disastrous 2010 election results, and they have selected 60 Republican-held “battleground” districts to try to make that change. Well, they can HOPE for CHANGE in the results all they want. According to a Democrat pollster, things look even worse now than they did in [...]
There are a lot of numbers Democrats don’t want you to see, and many of those numbers are poll numbers on various Democrat pet issues. Because those numbers show the Democrats are decidedly in the minority. But the Democrats don’t want the people to be aware of the fact they are actually in the majority [...]
Tina Korbe quotes Michael O’Brien from The Hill: Forty-four percent of Americans said they approve of the way Obama is doing his job, while 51 percent disapprove of the president, according to an NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll conducted late last week. Those numbers set a new low mark for Obama’s unpopularity in the NBC/WSJ [...]
This isn’t the end of the story. There will be more to come Monday, rest assured. The Unions have shown no regard for Law, civility, propriety or respect for others. So, expect the Unions to do what they have been doing constantly since this whole thing blew up in their faces: riot, break the law, [...]
Then you might want to look to where job creation has occurred. Dana Pico posted a pie chart I found very interesting. It shows only 9 states plus Washington DC added jobs from June 2006 to June 2011.* (Washington DC is most likely all government jobs, so it doesn’t really count.) While the pie chart [...]
William A Jacobson over at Le·gal In·sur·rec·tion is baffled at why Conservative sites would even bother reporting on the findings of PPP. It seems that every time I bother to look at the numbers behind a PPP poll, I find that they over sampled Democrats. While I have not tested a majority of PPP polls, [...]
Do I want Sarah Palin to announce today that she’s running for President? Absolutely. Absolutely not. Yes, I do. Well, maybe not yet. As you can see, I’m decidedly of two minds on the issue, and I’m a staunch Sarah Palin/Allen West 2012 supporter. Just this past week, two big news events came out regarding [...]
