Another week down another week closer to November 2012. With the economy on a roller coaster ride our President decided it was time to hit the road and campaign…nice. Now he’s taking a much needed break from all the troubles that come with an economy that is completely tanking. In my opinion the Republicans missed a golden opportunity here. They could have cut their vacation short and went back to work. Think of the points they would have scored. The slow recovery effort in Minot continued. Governors from a number of states affected by floods this past year met and decided to cut the Army Corps of Engineers out of the process in regards to developing and implementing flood protection measures. They have decided that the delays caused by the red tape involved with getting government approval to implement plans was too much. This is a good thing; states standing up for what is right and taking care of their people. Speaking of standing up for what is right, below are a few of my favorites conservative links from this past week. These come from some of the best conservative bloggers on the web so tee it up and enjoy another SENTRY JOURNAL round at the LINKs.
