Senator Mike Lee on the Federal Register

Take a look at this picture Senator Lee posted on his Facebook page. He had this to say about it: “Behold my display of the 2013 Federal Register.  It contains over 80,000 pages of new rules, regulations, and notices all written and passed by unelected bureaucrats.  The small stack of papers on top of the display are the laws passed by elected members of Congress and signed into law by the president.” Amazing but not surprising. This probably pales in comparison to the stack of EOs that were signed in 2013. ~Kathy

Arizona Censured John McCain

From Joe For America: Tired of hearing their senior U.S. Senator only focus righteous indignation against fellow Republicans and betrayed by McCain’s reversal of a campaign promise to oppose amnesty until a border fence is completed, the most grassroots of Republicans, precinct committeemen, from McCain’s home base of Phoenix and its Maricopa County delivered their own all too vicious and all too public retort: At the annual mandatory meeting of the Maricopa County Republican Committee Saturday, a resolution censuring Sen. John McCain was overwhelming passed by the elected precinct committeemen (PCs) representing the county seat of Phoenix…Committeemen representing the Republican voters are elected … Continue reading

Illegal Immigrants and Free Stuff

  I borrowed the following piece from FB and have never heard it said quite this way, but it’s true. Class warfare at its best. The folks who are getting the free stuff don’t like the folks who are paying for the free stuff, because the folks who are paying for the free stuff can no longer afford to pay for both the free stuff and their own stuff. And the folks who are paying for the free stuff want the free stuff to stop. The folks who are getting the free stuff want even more free stuff on top of the free stuff they are already … Continue reading

Wild Bill: No Confidence Vote

Here is Bill talking about Major General Paul Vallely (ret) and his mission to bring a “No Confidence Vote” to the forefront of American politics. Below is from General Vallely’s website:   Stand Up America The “Uber-Presidency” – Time for a ‘Vote of No Confidence’, Time for a ‘Recall’ By Paul E. Vallely (Major General, US Army, ret.) Clearly America has lost confidence and no longer trusts those in power at a most critical time in our history. It is true that not all who ply the halls of power fit under that broad brush, but most of them are … Continue reading

Football and Politics

While watching the Saints v Seahawks, the following analogy (from The Washington Post – 2013) came to mind: Politics is a team sport, but not for House Republicans  By Chris Cillizza, Published: June 30, 2013 Politics is a team sport. Except the way House Republicans have played it for the past few years. At the root of the problems that afflict the majority party in the House is that there are simply too few members willing to occasionally set aside personal interests and ambitions for the broader goals of the party. They just won’t take one for the team.  “The founders’ vision of seeing … Continue reading

Texas Ladies Have Their Priorities Straight

For those of you who don’t live here in Texas & think we are a bunch of uncivilized ruffians – well, it is simply not true!   In fact, we have ladies’ groups that meet regularly to discuss current events and develop needed home-skills.     ~Kathy

Christie in Crisis

Has Christie crossed the line? There are a couple problems with the Christie story. For now I’ll accept it as he has told it. Here was another article on it: http://cfif.org/v/freedom_line_blog/19915/a-few-thoughts-on-the-christie-scandal/ It’s good basic information. When Christie says he didn’t know anything about it, I will accept that premise. But when I do that a few things happen: first it says he was unaware of a major undertaking of his team. That hurts because it could indicate incompetence. See to believe all the “know nothing” claims from Obama, in scandal after scandal, you would have to conclude that he is … Continue reading

UK Politics Sounds Familiar

From Fox News: Britain’s version of Tea Party rocks political system across the pond The UK Independence Party (UKIP), formed in 1993 opposing Britain’s entry into the European Union, failed to make an electoral dent for a long time. However UKIP has built up steam in recent years and is spearheading a seismic shift in the British political spectrum. In this year’s local elections – the British version of midterms — UKIP took a stunning 23 percent of the vote, up from the 3.1 percent they won in the 2010 national election. Their leader, Nigel Farage, is buoyed by their … Continue reading

Senator Johnson Sues to Enforce Healthcare Law

From the AP/Yahoo: Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., filed a lawsuit Monday in U.S. District Court in Green Bay, Wis., challenging a September ruling by the Office of Personnel Management. The agency ruled that lawmakers and their staffs should continue to receive health care benefits covering about 75 percent of their premium costs after leaving the health insurance program for federal workers. Johnson said the OPM ruling on the application of President Obama’s health care overhaul to lawmakers and their aides amounted to special treatment for Congress: “It’s a basic issue of fairness,” he said. The lawsuit marks a new front … Continue reading

Doomed to Fail

From IJ Review: This commercial, sponsored by Citizens Against Government Waste, offers an intense and shocking glimpse at what our future could look like if the U.S. government continues to borrow money it can’t pay back. While it may be a bit extreme, it’s not too far from the truth. ~Kathy

The Tea Party is an Attitude

By Herman Cain at Canada Free Press: The Tea Party is an attitude, and establishment Republicans can’t quash it The political dynamics as we head into 2014 seem ideal for Republicans. But we all know Republicans are experts at shooting themselves in the foot, largely because they seem intent on silencing the people who most believe in the ideals that are supposed to be those of the GOP. I’m talking specifically about the Tea Party, which the GOP establishment fears because we’re really talking about the divide between the political class and the working class. If you don’t believe the … Continue reading

A Resolution I Can Keep

Seeing as how my BFAM (Brother From Another Mother) Doug Giles and I so often think amazingly alike, I decided to let him speak for both of us concerning our New Year’s Resolutions. This allows me more time to gather rotten tomatoes and eggs to throw at my TV… IF the Rose Parade, featuring 2 fags getting married on a float, appears on my screen. On 2nd thought, the Rose Parade will NOT appear on my screen today. Period. And if you like that type of parade, you can keep that type of parade. I won’t be watching again. Period. ~~~oOo~~~ Townhall … Continue reading

The Mitt We Never Knew

from the IJ Review: Did you ever wonder what kind of man Mitt Romney really was behind the scenes? The man we saw was always camera ready with answers in hand. Here’s a peek at the real guy, the dad, the husband and the candidate. I believe he would have been a great president and had it not been for the massive voter fraud perpetrated by O and his regime, things in America could be going very differently now. Greg Whitley is a close family friend who had exclusive access to Romney for six years and he recently directed a new … Continue reading

You Can Do Your Part

If you find yourself without a place to protest the Obama administration this weekend, look no further than your local retailers. The movement is called “Impeach Obamarama” and has been designated for Dec. 14 and 21. The “mischievous” event encourages people to go to their local retailer and rearrange letters to spell “impeach Obama,” according to a post on the “Overpasses for Obama’s Impeachment Florida” Facebook page. Craft and hardware stores or departments are the most likely targets for the activity. The Facebook page “Breitbart – One Voice Silenced, Millions Awakened’s Photos” posted this photo taken at a Hobby Lobby store … Continue reading

The Best Second Amendment Speech Ever!

From IJ Review: Every once in awhile a video speaks for itself. This is one of those videos. Watch former Iraqi war combat veteran and current police officer Aaron Weiss address the Dutchess County legislature in New York on the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. A very moving speech from a man whose actions and words deserve much admiration. Thank you, Sir, for taking a stand and for your service. ~Kathy

John Boehner: Grassroot Conservatives Suck

Actually he didn’t say that exactly but he might as well have. “I’m as conservative as anyone around this place… I mean what I say and I do what I say … blah, blah, blah…” BULLSHIT Conservatives are the base of the GOP.  He and all the RINOs in Congress have forgotten this.  You have gone over to the other side and the left is laughing their asses off.  You fool. See ya John… don’t let the door hit you on the way out when you get primaried out next spring. ~ Hardnox

Crybaby Johnny, At It Again.

Any one still believe this Man’s Country denizen is a conservative? If so, maybe THIS story will remove your blinders.
