Memorial Day Tribute

I spent 23 years in the military working side by side with some of the finest America has to offer.  These men and women were and are my brothers and sisters and it was indeed my honor to know such people.  These remarkable Americans don’t sign up for riches or fame.  They give themselves to a higher calling to serve; a calling that demands deep sacrifices, steadfast commitment, and unwavering professionalism.  They are the guardians of our freedom and the defenders of our constitution.  The freedom we enjoy every day is because they stand ready to trade their lives in order to preserve freedom and liberty in America.  Today is the day we honor those who paid the ultimate price so that we may live free.  I found an older … Read entire article »

Huffington Post: Honoring our veterans in their own way

Last Thursday when I was checking out all the conservative blogs that were honoring our veterans I found a number of wonderful tributes.  I discovered a number of patriots who cared deeply about those who are currently serving and those who have served.  I could feel this as the honored veterans day in their own way.  What I forgot to do was check out the left to see how they were honoring our vets.  I must say what I found was a bit troubling if not downright disgraceful. Below is a video I found at Huffington Post from a 10 Nov article. You can read the entire article here>> So basically the day before we honor our veterans who have defended our liberties and freedoms Huffington Post runs this polarizing politically charged crap. Oh it gets better.  On 14 Nov 2010 Huffington Post ran another story in … Read entire article »

Thank You to all Veterans from a fellow Veteran.

It was a hot July day in 1986 when I decide to change the course of my life.  I had spent the previous year in college racking up a bunch of personal debt not knowing what I wanted to be when I grew up.  It was an empty and unfulfilling feeling that clung to me.  I decided that if by the end of the school year I was still unsure of a major to pursue, I would look into the military; that decision point was one that would lead to the most challenging and rewarding experience of my life.  It was the point when I made the decision to walk away from the college campus and enlist in the Air Force. My plan was simple enough; learn a trade in the military and … Read entire article »

In Defense of Gun Ownership Rights

Bill Whittle makes a compelling argument in defense of gun ownership rights in part 5 of his Firewall series.  Personally I never really understood why some people believe the 2nd amendment is about hunting.  Think about whenever some liberal or progressive group attempts to create laws that restrict or limit gun ownership they always use the sales pitch that hunting will not be impacted.  I always reply to that argument by saying the 2nd amendment is not about hunting. Take some time and watch the below video. I couldn’t have said it any better.  Liberty forever, freedom for all! … Read entire article »

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 »

The Battle For The Future Of America

RightHandMan watched John Stossel’s “The Battle for the Future of America” last night and today asked me to give it a look.  It was definitely revealing as Stossel examined our current economic woes from unemployment to unions and the contributing factors driving our economy into a ditch.  It was outstanding and I recommend that people take time in their day to watch all three parts.  Trust me it is worth it! The Battle For The Future Of America part 1 The Battle For The Future Of America part 2 The Battle For The Future Of America part 3 We can turn this thing around!  We need more help from the private sector and less from the public.  It starts this November 2nd.

Video: Greta Van Susteren exposes the left’s mindset

Greta Van Susteren invited Gloria Allred on her show and confronted her with direct questions over the Meg Whitman illegal maid topic.  I must say that after watching the interview I have decided that if I ever need legal representation I would pick Greta over Gloria Allred any day of the week.  During the interview Ms. Allred appeared to be all over the place and at times I found myself questioning her competence as an attorney.  Greta called Ms. Allred out in regards to her comparing her client actions to civil rights activist Rosa Parks.  In my opinion Allred’s defense of this position not only diminished the historical importance of Rosa Park’s courageous acts during the civil rights movement, but insulted the intelligence of most clear thinking Americans.  The video below is about 9 minutes long; however if … Read entire article »

John King: Destructive News vs Invaluable News

CNN’s John King hammered away at President Obama’s assertion that Fox News is destructive while MSNBC is invaluable. So if you agree with the President and his policies you are providing an invaluable service for society; however if you disagree, you are destructive and must be destroyed.  Our founders would be so proud of this President.  I can’t believe his approval rating is still in the 40s.

Cass Sunstein: How Most Conservatives View the Constitution

I actually learned of this video this morning listening to the Glenn Beck radio show.  Glenn Beck has often referred to Cass Sunstein as the most dangerous man in America.  I’m can’t really speak to that but I can tell you that the below video provides a classic example of how progressives view our Constitution and Mr. Sunstein’s opinion of the conservative judge viewpoint. “Some conservative legal thinkers like Justice Scalia and Justice Thomas think that the constitution means what it originally meant“…ummm is there any other way to see it?  Well actually there is another way to see it; it’s called the progressive way.  With the progressive way you will view the Constitution as a living and breathing document that is open to all kinds of interpretation.  They can change it as often as … Read entire article »

Elizabeth Warren believes the First Amendment Right Needs ‘Dialing Back

Here’s a clip that will turn your stomach courtesy of NewsBuster.  It appears that the person President Obama selected to help set up a new consumer protection bureau, Elizabeth Warren, really isn’t a fan of political speech and would like it dialed back. Elizabeth Warren: First Amendment Right ‘Scares Me’, Needs ‘Dialing Back’ Our founders believed that the most important aspect of our first amendment rights was the freedom to speak out against our government.  They didn’t make the distinction on whether it was an individual right or an organizational right only that it was right to be afforded to all.  They believed that one of the main paths towards good government was the right to speak freely on political matters without fear of reprisal.  She believes that this is a scary thing in … Read entire article »

Video: "Never Forgotten" 9/11 Tribute

Most people know exactly where they were when they first heard the news on that September morning nine years ago today.  I was in the military and my wife and I had returned from leave a few days early.  We were at home having breakfast when it was first reported that a passenger jet crashed into one of the twin towers in NYC.  My wife and I like many of you watched as events unfolded and with each passing moment our hearts sank as a feeling of helplessness washed over us. We both realized that America had changed in an instant and that we must never forget the moment and how we felt about it.  We must never forget those that lost their lives with these brutal acts of terrorism.  We must … Read entire article »

President Obama stumbles around health care question

With each passing day it seems the critics of ObamaCare are being proven right.  From the impact it’s starting to have on the business community to the rapid increase in premium costs, all that was feared is coming to pass.  On the day it was passed in March of this year Nancy Pelosi carried a over-sized gavel past Americans gathered on that day to protest the bill, taunting and mocking them as she marched triumphantly to the House to fundamentally change America forever. Only a few weeks earlier she made the below statement. Well we are all starting to find out what is in it and it’s not good.  Today the President held a press conference and was asked a straight forward question about how the increased cost curve of reform … Read entire article »

2010 Election: Democrat mind tricks…don’t be weak minded.

With November rapidly approaching the campaign ads are in full swing and politicians are using clever little smoke and mirror tricks to sway our opinions and convince us they are the solutions to the problems they created.  The more I see these ads, the more I am insulted by the shameless tactics they employ.  Their Democrat mind tricks will not work on me. Like in the above clip from the Star Wars, the Democrats are hoping their mind tricks will work on the weak minded.  They create ads that evade the real issues and tell you that everything is good.  They will make claims by saying look at all the jobs we’ve saved or created by bringing you the voter all these taxpayer funded programs.  The weak minded will fall for this and say … Read entire article »

Video:The Broken Window Fallacy

We all know that Obama’s failed economic policies are rooted in Marxism.  His wealth redistribution agenda and Keynesian model are destroying our economy and killing jobs.  He is convinced that the same entity that has mismanaged the post office, bankrupted social security, and failed miserably in their response to the gulf oil spill can be more efficient than the private sector.  This is a man that is completely out of step with the American people and pretty much out of touch with reality.  Removing wealth from the private sector to redistribute it as it sees fit destroys wealth and weakens economic growth.  Increasing taxes removes wealth from the private sector and drastically slows economic growth.  Why?  Well the money that would otherwise be spent on goods and services in the private sector … Read entire article »

Americans need to start listening to Paul Ryan

Paul Ryan gets it!  He knows exactly where we are as a nation and the direction we’re heading if we don’t get our spending under control.  This is a man that more Americans need to start listening to.  He is very much in tune with the times and understands what we need to do to get ourselves back on the road to prosperity. We know that the out-of-control spending by our government cannot continue.  And yet every time we turn around they are passing another bill that is confiscating money from the private sector to feed another entitlement program we cannot afford.  They are desperately trying to get the American people into the “nanny state” frame of mind.  The more people they can addict to government entitlement programs the lazier we will … Read entire article »

Capitalism Lessons for Obama from 1948

Yesterday President Obama called on former President Clinton for his help on the struggling U.S. economy.  It appears Obama is starting to feel the heat from his failed economic policies as more and more people express concerns over his ability to address the nation’s economic woes.  The U.S. Chamber of Commerce issued a scathing critique of the administration’s policies.  The leading business group issued a rebuke of Obama’s economic agenda, accusing him and his Democrats in Congress of neglecting job creation and hampering growth with burdensome regulatory and tax policies.  This is all happening as the Senate prepares to vote on one of the most anti-capitalistic bills (Financial Reform Bill) that this nation has ever seen. It appears that the President and his party are struggling over what exactly capitalism is and how it can actually help restart the economic engine … Read entire article »

Is the Financial Reform Bill Unconstitutional?

With the Senate on the verge of driving a stake through the heart of our free market system with the new and improved Financial Reform bill (H.R. 4173), I question whether it’s constitutional. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s view on this bill can be summed up in the following excerpt: the U.S. Chamber of Commerce today highlighted to lawmakers the regulatory tsunami that will develop from the conference base text, including 355 potential new rulemakings, 47 studies, and 74 reports—and potentially dozens more as implementation begins. “This tsunami of new rules and studies will perpetuate uncertainty and fail to provide clear rules of the road,” said David Hirschmann, president and CEO of the Chamber’s Capital Markets Center. “Business needs certainty, and we urge Congress to provide as much clarity as possible to ill-defined … Read entire article »

Mr. Stalin’s Neighborhood…in America

According to a new poll by Democracy Corps 55 percent of likely voters think “socialist” is a reasonably accurate way of describing Obama.  That’s an absolutely astounding number considering it was derived from citizens of a nation that was founded on individual liberties, property rights, and limited government.  When the majority of the citizens of this great Republic believe that their chief executive officer is a socialist that should send a pretty clear message that we’re on the wrong track. Now I know that there is a difference between socialism and communism and I’m not saying that all socialists are communists, but the two philosophies have more in common with each other than they have in common with a free market system and capitalism.  Socialism uses capitalism to a degree; however it still attempts to control the means of production just like … Read entire article »
