Miss USA waves 2010 good-bye

The year is nearly over – time to review what’s happened in 2010 while we look forward to a superb 2011.  I’ve picked a few posts we’ve done each month this year…some were more enlightening, some were more argumentative, and some were just more entertaining.  We took all of December off, but look forward to getting back at posting more in 2011.  Thanks for visiting the site this year, and wish y’all a Happy, Blessed, and Prosperous New Year.  (more…)

Arizona Illegal Immigration Ruckus

With a little help from today’s news, Bill O’reilly and his recurring guest Bernard Goldberg have finally convinced me. I now agree with them that the media is not just biased in opinion, but is corrupt in their tactics and means they will use to push their agenda. If you’ve ever questioned the leanings and power of a “covertly” slanted media, look no further than the past week and a half. The hubbub over the Arizona Illegal Immigration law points to a trend that should frighten even the leftist of left-wingers. I believe the media, working in possible collusion with open-borders proponents and morally confused liberals have engaged in a campaign to blatantly distort, discredit and outright lie about the new Arizona law.

Whether or not the average American realizes it, we are on the brink of an important ideological shift regarding the future of our country.  In clear opposition to America’s Founding Principles of limited government, free enterprise and individual liberty, President Obama and the Democratic Party are fundamentally transforming our nation.  And although Obama ran as a moderate looking to unite during his presidential campaign, he clearly articulated his vision prior to the election.  His goal was simple; to transform America.  A few months after inauguration he outlined his agenda (which was reaffirmed during his first State of the Union Address), and has since worked tirelessly to implement each step he believes will usher in a new era of American life.  An American life unified with leftist values; dependence on big government, and a financial and social system on par with our western European allies.  Call me conservative, a Tea Party member, a right-wing radical or extremist all you want, but the evidence supporting my “theory” of our impending ideological shift by so-called Democratic mandate is overwhelming.  (more…)

Massive, Violent, Racist, TEA Party Protest

Massive, Violent, Racist, TEA Party Protest

On March 23, President Obama signed his Health Care Bill into law. A day later the news was wall to wall with coverage about the hate filled speech and threats against members of Congress. I know it has been a long year of debating health care but I was still left looking for answers on what was now actually law. I would have liked to hear more about the government taking over the student loan program or the Ready Reserve Corps. Why does that stuff have to be apart of Health Care Reform? (more…)

Sounds About Right....

Straightforward eloquence is not a virtue we have been subjected to lately. Disillusionment seems to reign the day as cognitive dissonance and a near universal lack of objectivity has permeated even our most trustworthy sources of news and information.  Although hyperbole and self-aggrandizement are nothing new, their effectiveness and usage rates seem to be increasing exponentially.  In short, activists, commentators, journalists, professors, and even pastors have played a part in Stealing Language.     (more…)

The health care summit today made for some interesting television…if you find policy discussion devoid of any real confrontation interesting. Although boring, I love watching politics in action…I am a political wonk like that. I listened to way too much of it, and jotted down a couple things I liked and didn’t like about today’s forum.   (more…)

The most shocking news from President’s Day did not come from your local furniture store’s crazy sales or the fact that I managed to forget twice that the Post Office was closed.  In Indiana, Sen. Evan Bayh announced his retirement from Congress citing his disillusionment with the entire Congressional system.  The timing of this announcement was strange.  While he is up for re-election in 2010, his job was seen as safe.  He led in polling over the leading Republican challenger by 20 points, and his popularity is polling 15 points higher than Obama in his own state.  The son of a longtime liberal senator, his family legacy is rooted in national politics.  So why the rush to retire?  (more…)

Score one for Joe Public

A story our website failed to cover extensively was the backroom deals that took place in the Senate to get Obamacare passed. One of the big recipients was Ben Nelson a formerly popular Governor from Nebraska. In return for his vote his state received ‘the cornhusker kickback’, which among other things gave the state a permanent exemption from the state share of Medicaid expansion for Nebraska, meaning federal taxpayers have to kick in an additional $45 million in the first decade. Maybe America is beginning to wake up, the very constituents that benefited from this deal booed and heckled Nelson out of a Pizza Hut. Now he trails by 31 points in a hypothetical match-up with Nebraska’s current governor for the 2012 elections. I commend the citizens of Nebraska for holding their representatives accountable.

While the heat was on Nelson and negotiations were being made, Nelson ran this video to help persuade his fellow constituents.
We found out this week, that it’s not a Ben Nelson campaign ad. You probably can’t make out the disclaimer, but the ad was paid for by the Nebraska Democratic Party. So, not only did Nelson get bought off with Medicaid funding from the federal treasury, it now appears he got TV ads from the NDP. The DNC and Organizing for America have been asking supporters of “real” health care reform for funds and to the tune of about 500,000 dollars that support went to Nelson. The same Nelson that helped kill the public option, medicare buy-in, and insisted on harsh anti abortion language. Funny, that at this very time in Martha Coakley was running some horrendous ads in Massachusetts. Think this money could have been better spent?

State of the Union Address
 
  
 
In last year’s unofficial State of the Union, Obama outlined a lofty left-winged agenda composed of three tiers; Education reform, Healthcare reform, and Climate change.  Only a few months after telling Americans that he would transform our country, he actually set out to do so.  Well, things haven’t gone so well thus far.  Most thought the Health Bill was dead in the Senate, and the Climate Bill may be an even bigger bee’s nest that the Senate has steered completely clear from. 

Healthcare: Nevertheless, about 45 minutes into President Obama’s speech, he pivoted back to Healthcare and more specifically “health insurance reform.”  (more…)
