Earl Pomeroy: The plea of a desperate man

North Dakota is on the verge of sending Democratic Representative Earl Pomeroy packing and apparently he is beginning to feel it.  Below is his latest appeal to North Dakotans. For years this man has managed to portray himself as a moderate Democrat in a conservative state and for the most part has received a free pass for bringing home the bacon for North Dakota’s largest industry; agriculture.  This year when the people of our great state overwhelmingly voiced their deep concerns over passing ObamaCare, Earl put in his Washington earplugs and pressed on and voted for ObamaCare against the wishes of a majority of his constituents.  I personally wrote him two letters expressing my lack of support for ObamaCare and heard nothing back in return.  I’m sure that I was not the … Read entire article »

Kicking the entitlement mentality habit: Is America really ready for this?

Today I was having a conversation with a few individuals about what it’s going to take to get us back on the path towards prosperity.  It started innocent enough with one simple question; are you going to vote this year?  The answers I got were basically no because they did not understand the issues.  This of course prompted me to inquire and drill down a bit deeper.  I asked how they felt about the direction of our country; both politically and economically and basically I got the deer in the headlights look.  So I felt the need to dig a little deeper and asked a very specific question; do you think social security is going to be there for you when you retire.  The answer I received was no from … Read entire article »

Earl Pomeroy and the Local Media

Say Anything » Ethics Investigation of Earl Pomeroy Goes to Next Level I wanted to share good article from the Say Anything Blog.  It pertains to an ethics investigation directed at our soon to be unemployed representative Earl Pomeroy.  Now to help you understand what we’re up against, the local media in our state has failed to do their job and give this serious issue the attention it so deserves.  They mentioned it in the Fargo and Grandforks newspapers as a listed story; however I could not find a word of it in the Minot Daily News or Bismark Tribune. You see we face some of the same issues with the media and their support for liberal candidates on a local level as the entire nation experiences with the MSM on a … Read entire article »

DISCLOSE Act Passes House Vote 219-206

Well our Congress has taken the first step to limit free speech going into an election year by passing H.R. 5175.  The vote represents a total disregard for the 1st amendment of our Constitution by making a law abridging free speech.  The only organizations exempt from the bill is the NRA and unions.  The law will take effect 30 days after passage.  It could take years before it finds its way to the SCOTUS for a ruling even though it flies in the face of the recent SCOTUS ruling in Citizens United v FEC.  Listen to Mark Levin’s and free speech expert Cleta Mitchell’s take on the passage of the bill and what it means for all of us here. Democrat Hank Johnson reveals the real reason behind passing the DISCLOSE Act. Now in … Read entire article »

Earl Pomeroy: Morphing from a Lap Dog to Blue Dog…again

Earl Pomeroy knows he’s in trouble in North Dakota.  He has already started airing campaign ads that depict him as a moderate that stood up for North Dakota values in a Nancy Pelosi Congress.  Yes the same North Dakota that is one of the most conservative states in the Union.  From the Say Anything Blog; According to Congressional Quarterly, in 2009 Earl Pomeroy voted with his party 95%of the time and in agreement with President Obama 96% of the time. Wow it really sounds like he is standing up for those conservative values that North Dakotans embrace.  Voting with the most liberal congress in years 95% of the time.  I mean if you watch his ads the impression you get is that he doesn’t follow the party line.  He’s a maverick.  Really Mr. … Read entire article »

A World Beyond Washington DC

Last night I sat down and decided it was time to write my North Dakota Representative Earl Pomeroy.  I believe the Republic hangs in the balance and in these next two weeks and we are all going to have to kick in to fight for her.  Pomeroy claims to be a “blue dog” Democrat, but his record of voting with the his progressive party 97 percent of the time screams liberal or maybe even progressive.  I have been receiving emails from his office as of late as to what he is concerned about in North Dakota.  Most of it is softball topics.  Some of it is about deficit spending, fiscal responsibility and so on.  None of it mentions the current healthcare bill.  My guess is he is running a bit scared … Read entire article »

Blue Dog Blueprint for 2010…LIE!

This morning I was reading my local newspaper and buried in the region section was a small write-up about how our so called “blue dog” representative was surprised by President Obama.  You see, I reside in one of those “red states” that is being represented by a self proclaimed “blue dog” democrat.  The state is North Dakota and our lone representative Earl Pomeroy is doing it again.  He stated to the AP how disappointed he was in how much he disagrees with Obama “a whole lot of the time too.”  If there was milk from my cereal in my mouth at the time I read it, I would have spit it out all over the place.  Really Mr. Pomeroy, you disagree “a whole lot of the time” with Obama?  Are you … Read entire article »

The Centrist

Caught between conservative and liberal political ideology is a creature called the centrist.  The centrist is one that finds comfort in the middle of the political spectrum.  They have been labeled as Blue Dogs, RHINOS, Independents, Moderates, and Fence Sitters.  They steer clear of the far left and right and are bi-partisan in nature.  They are tired of the political games in Washington and believe that the best solutions come from both sides of the isle.  Both parties can’t stand them, yet both need them to win.  They are nomadic wanderers in a political desert, searching for a place to call home.  So why is it so important to understand them and the role they play in today’s political landscape?  The simple answer is because centrism sells. During this last election … Read entire article »
