Tea Party Supporters More Scientifically Literate

From IJ Review: Yale Law professor Dan M. Kahan was conducting an analysis of the scientific comprehension of various political groups when he ran into a shocking discovery: tea party supporters are slightly more scientifically literate than the non-tea party population. When composing histograms of the scientific inference abilities of liberals and conservatives, he discovered that those who described themselves as tea party supporters came out pretty well, based on National Science Foundation standards of evaluation: The shift to the right on the gray columns represents a positive correlation between tea party members and generally higher scientific test scores. The … Continue reading

It’s good to see the nation’s leading talk show host FINALLY recognize what we here at ‘Nox & Friends have been saying practically forever. “The GOP is Irrelevant” From World Net Daily: Rush Limbaugh, the leading conservative voice in America, is scorching the Republican Party as an irrelevant disaster which has apparently made a decision “not to exist.” “I was trying to think earlier today if ever in my life I could remember any major political party being so irrelevant,” the top-rated radio host said Wednesday on his national broadcast. “I have never seen it. I have never seen a … Continue reading

More Veterans Going to Washington DC

Another group of military veterans is scheduled to arrive in D.C. tomorrow morning to carry out a second protest, demanding lawmakers immediately end the government shutdown. The protest is being organized by The Military Coalition (TMC), …a group of 33 organizations that represents 5.5 million people. Members are comprised of the uniformed services—active, reserve, retired veterans, survivors and their families.

Day 3 in DC: Veterans, Truckers and Barricades

The Americans are coming!! The Americans are coming!!   ~~~ And they’re tearing down barricades. ~~~ And posing in Iwo Jima style for the cameras. ~~~ And then cops on horses showed up…  ~~~ and cops on foot with all their bad-boy gear (Hey, officer these are veterans and some of them were shooting bad guys while you were still in diapers.) ~~~ After a futile attempt to run them off, a riot broke out. Oh wait, that’s not a riot, that’s Americans singing the National Anthem. ~~~ Where are they going and why are they carrying those barricades? (left of the … Continue reading

National Parks Re-Open – With a Catch

From Yahoo News and AP: FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) — Tourists returned to the Grand Canyon on Saturday after Arizona officials along with several counterparts agreed to a federal government plan to reopen national parks, which had been closed as a result of the partial government shutdown. But the Obama administration’s OK to reopen tourist areas across the nation came with a big caveat: States must foot the bill with money they likely won’t see again. So far, Utah, Colorado, South Dakota, Arizona and New York have agreed to open parks that had been closed since the beginning of the month. … Continue reading

UPDATED: Day 2: Truckers Ride into Washington DC

I’m seeing lots of reports of heavy rain that’s putting a damper on things, but the truckers are driving around in it anyway. There’s also several posts about some 48-60 ‘rogue’ drivers who broke away and are cruising around the Pentagon and some of the memorials. I found this one on Twitter taken this morning. I’d say they’re getting pretty close! This may be a repeat from yesterday?? More to come later…. Kathy ~~~~~~ Updated 4:00 pm CST The unofficial ‘Pace Car’ Red, White and Blue Trucks to match Old Glory More on their way in and the following is … Continue reading

Turncoat ? You Read And Decide.

Found this nugget at Breitbart.com.  Read for yourself, and draw your conclusions. I know what MINE is. Sources: Ryan Compromise Will Keep Obamacare ‘Forever’.         IF this is true, YOU, sir, have ELIMINATED any chance at higher office.             by             Matthew Boyle      11 Oct 2013, 12:38 PM PDT Breitbart News reported that House Republicans have offered a new deal to the White House to end the fiscal stalemate. The GOP plan, authored primarily by House Budget Chair Rep. Paul Ryan according to Hill sources, would meet Obama’s demands in exchange for negotiations on a longer-term budget agreement.

It Was Just a Matter of Time

From WND: Boehner waves white flag of surrender House GOP outlines deal to avert default, end shutdown   House Republicans were in a holding pattern Friday, awaiting a response from the Obama administration to a proposal to lift the debt ceiling, end the government shutdown and set up six weeks of budget talks. The offer comes on the 11th day of the government shutdown. In addition to ending the shutdown and increasing the debt limit, the proposal includes an easing of the across-the-board spending cuts that began taking effect a year ago, and replacing them with curbs in benefit programs that Obama himself has … Continue reading

Mychal Massie – “Fired Up For Freedom”

Here’s Mychal Massie: I am fired up for freedom Mychal Massie, The Daily Rant Marsha Hughes is one of my readers. She commented on my Facebook page, “You’re really FIRED UP FOR FREEDOM, Mychal! Thank you!” She’s right. I am “fired up for freedom” because, just as it is with time and life, it is a commodity that when taken away, i.e., gone, you do not get it back. There is no do over. I have enjoyed freedom from the moment of my birth, and I have no desire to see my child and future grandchildren enjoy anything less. As … Continue reading

A Letter to the President

I got this from a friend of a friend, who wishes to remain anonymous, and she says what we’re all thinking. We should all write a similar letter – that is, if you don’t mind being audited. Mr. Obama,  In case you think that all of us in the electorate are so brain dead that we buy your lies, posturing, blaming,  thieving,  petty games…………think again.  Millions of us are on to you and your ilk.  You are not only a scourge on the White House and this Country; you are a scourge on humanity in general. The wide spread pain you … Continue reading

Ben Shapiro Launches TruthRevolt Website

From Breitbart: On Sunday, Breitbart News Editor-at-Large Ben Shapiro discussed the launch of a new website that will seek to “change the nature of media” by exposing the donors and advertisers that enable the mainstream media to distort the truth and push their agendas with no accountability, especially when it comes to their bottom lines.

Our NEW Civil War

Make no mistake about it; we are slap-dab in the middle of a new civil war in this country. It’s not a formally declared war and it might be lurking just below the surface, but it is a battle nonetheless. We have two factions at war with each other to determine the future of the United States. On one side, we have the informed, politically aware portion of the citizenry. While they listen to what our national leaders are saying and what the talking heads and pundits allow, they don’t assume they’re being told the truth, instead they dig deeper, … Continue reading

The Discussion Zone – Oct. 4, 2013

It is my opinion that we need to unravel the sweater (more like straight jacket) that is the national government.      (dawnprickett.blogspot.com)   What I would like to know are your thoughts as to WHAT is the thread that needs to be pulled to unravel the mess?  There must be one thread that could be pulled that would start the process.   

French Repubs, Shut It Down.

Ted Cruz on Meet The Press

From Human Events by John Hayward: Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) appeared on NBC’s “Meet the Press” this weekend, where he was subjected to the sort of confrontational needling by host David Gregory that no Democrat will ever have to face on anything.  Good thing, too, because if “journalists” ever treated someone like Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid or President Barack Obama the way Gregory attacked Cruz, they’d have a nervous breakdown. Cruz did not have a nervous breakdown.  He handled the assault from this “impartial journalist” with aplomb, which must have driven liberal viewers nuts.  I notice all the lefty … Continue reading
