Mike Huckabee and His Willie Horton

The Republican Primary field for 2012 may have just become a little smaller.

Maurice Clemmons shot to death the four police officers shown above. He would have been in prison in Arkansas, but then Governor Mike Huckabee commuted his 108 year prison term, making him eligible for parole.

Nice move, Mike. I'm sure John McCain would approve.
The Art of Political War for Tea Parties

by David Horowitz

In positioning themselves as champions of the under-represented, neglected and oppressed, leftists employ a version of America’s story that they have manufactured through their grip on the media and the academic culture. They have transformed America’s story from an epic of freedom into a tale of racism, exploitation and domination. In their telling, American history is no longer a narrative of expanding opportunity, of men and women succeeding against the odds. Instead, it is a Marxist Morality Play about the powerful and their victims.

The Tea Parties draw on the heritage of America’s own revolution as an underdog nation and are the voice of the people, oppressed now by their own government which is out of control and determined to crush them.

The Jobs Summit

According to Politico, President Obama has already had a “Fiscal Responsibility Summit,” a “Health Care Summit,” an “H1N1 Flu Preparedness Summit,” and even a “Distracted Driving Summit.”

Now comes the "Jobs Summit."

I've heard that this is how Community Organizers operate. They get together and talk things out. No leader. No original thoughts. No solutions. No matter... They have good intentions.

The outlook for jobs and unemployment is grim, and I believe it has been made so much worse by the uncertainty perpetuated by Washington and their antics. And when you add in the new spending and the loss of tax revenue, inflation is sure to follow... Which will perpetuate the unemployment.

I guess I didn't need to retire early.

The American Politburo's Children and their School

Sidwell Friends School

Before Obama and his Red Army stormed the nation's capitol, there was a school voucher program for poor D.C. families who wanted their children to attend an actual school, which was not an actual war zone. The Democrats have arranged for this program to die from attrition.

The Sidwell Friends School is the school of choice for the Politburo's children, and is currently educating the President's daughters. To be fair, it's not that Michelle and Barry don't want their offspring rubbing elbows with riffraff, they are simply paying off the Teacher's unions.

But the reality is clear: Private schools for the Politburo, war zones for the poor.

Hide The Decline - Climategate

Love it.

The American Politburo

Have you noticed that Barack Obama has done nothing to save the dollar or create new jobs... Have you noticed that He and the Dems are doing the exact things that will exacerbate the problem and bring on ruinous inflation?
Barack knows that when the Soviet Union was floundering economically, there was a class of Soviet citizen that prospered and did just fine. There were two classes of Soviet: The poor and the Communist Party Officials. The Politburo and their families did not have to stand in line for food or toilet paper. Barack, Nancy, "Plugs" Biden, and the rest of the American Politburo won't have to stand in line either.

Palin Impresses

Sarah Palin was interviewed by Rush Limbaugh yesterday, and she did a great job. You might be able to listen to the interview at

I still don't think that she is the strongest conservative candidate the Republicans can put forward... But I'm ready for her to change my mind... And she may.

Update: Transcript for non-members... You can read it here:

MSNBC Discovers New Information on Fort Hood Murders

MSNBC--According to Keith Olberman, Nidal Malik Hasan did not shout "Allah Ackbar" before he opened fire upon defenseless soldiers at Fort Hood. According to Olberman, Hasan shouted "A La Carte Bar" expressing his anger over the poor food in the cafeteria. This, yet another food-related attack, has been mischaracterized as a terrorist attack by neo-cons who have tried to somehow blame the peaceful religion of Islam for Hasan's actions.

Olberman added, "When a man already suffers from mental illness, sometimes a poorly prepared crepe or even over-cooked carrots can push him into a homicidal funk."


I made this up. Sadly, I feel I have to tell you that I made this up... Or you will wonder if this story is true... or if I made it up. Such is the MSM.

The mainstream media is still asking, "Why did he do it? Why was his 'mental illness' not discovered by the military?"

Let's get our troops out of Afghanistan and Iraq. Let's stop all surveillance programs that involve Muslims. We would ultimately be safer if all that money would be spent finding a cure for mental illness. It's not Islam. It's not the Koran. It's mental illness that threatens us...

And possibly cafeteria food.

Sgt Asan Akbar kills and maims his fellow American soldiers by tossing grenades into the Command Center tent in Kuwait.

Six years later we learn again of the mixed allegiances of Muslims in the Military.

This week when Major Assan shouted "Allah Akbar" and shot 42 unarmed American soldiers in the worst terrorist attack in this country since 9/11... Political Correctness in the news coverage ruled.

Our brave president told us not to jump to conclusions about the motivation behind these murders.

After all, this is a Muslim American... not some white policeman and a black guy.

"Man" Murders 12 at Fort Hood

I had to read three quarters of the article before the author commented on the "Man's" Arabic sounding name.

A violent Muslim? Who would have thought?

The story didn't mention whether or not the "man" had run over his daughter recently.

Quote for the Day

"I've been looking at all the exit-poll data and election analysis... I can't find how many votes Obama created or saved in New Jersey and Virginia."
--Rush Limbaugh


A Burly Man at Heart

Until I hit my 40's, I was prettier than most people's sisters... Not exactly burly... was I. I was Dick Cavett pretty, but I wasn't Tommy Tune pretty.

I remember sitting in a girlfriend's apartment back in the early 80's, and Tommy Tune came on the TV singing and dancing. I said, "Geez! That guy is prettier than I am!" My girlfriend laughed and said, "Hey, he's prettier than I am, too!"

Before you think I'm bragging... Consider that women aren't attracted to pretty men any more than men like moustached "mannish" women.

But moving on to my point... Having never married, I'm sure assumptions were sometimes made about my sexual orientation that wouldn't have been made before the liberal culture put a spotlight on the gay lifestyle and attempted to legitimize it. Because gays are celebrated and promoted in today's entertainment, bachelors are often looked upon with suspicion.

Am I bitter? Maybe!

Still, I've never been one to gay bash or use slurs. I figure your average fudge-packer has enough problems without having to deal with insensitive remarks... So I refuse to make them.

Recently an NFL player tweeted on Twitter that a person's avatar picture was a "fag pic." He was suspended for two games and fined $300,000.

Well dang!

I think of overweight people, homely little girls, people that aren't very bright, born-again Christians, and other individuals who suffer unkind remarks and yet do not enjoy the same heavy-handed protection that gays benefit from.

Punishing people for their speech is an idea whose time has unfortunately come. It's a part of the slow and steady movement towards liberalism and godlessness, Slouching Towards Gomorrah as Robert Bork put it. I've watched it all my life...

Evil pushes... We stomp our feet, we compromise, we plan our next purchase.

All that just to post another picture of myself.

Yesterday a Republican stronghold in upstate New York chose to elect a Democrat and give Pelosi another vote rather than be represented by a Reagan conservative.

It was a smack down for Sarah Palin, Tim Pawlenty, and conservatives everywhere. It was a win for the McCains, the Grahams, for Newt Gingrich and other compromisers... and it illustrates the fissure in the Republican party.

There is nothing to celebrate today... Because nothing good happened for conservatives yesterday.
