Freedom of Movement

Some years ago, the point was made that freedom of movement was an essential component of American freedom.  I wish I could relate the source of my enlightenment on that point, but it escapes me at the moment.  I’ve always remembered it on some level, because it is so obviously true on so basic a …

Halfway there

I guess turnout was indeed greater than expected… my damned poll site ran out of stickers before I got there. Oh well, this one will do. Halfway to 2012.  Thankfully, today’s results should stem the tide until we can correct the mistake of 2008.  Now we just have to keep our collective foot on the …

Welcome to the new world order

Think the conspiracy theorists are completely out of touch?  Not on this one. Court allows countries to join challenge to Arizona Law In a new twist in the fight over Arizona’s immigration law, Republican Gov. Jan Brewer on Tuesday asked a federal court to disallow foreign governments from joining the U.S. Department of Justice lawsuit to …

Peace Through Strength

Seems quite reasonable to me. A Platform for Restoring ‘Peace Through Strength’ In a world characterized by growing threats to freedom and the U.S. Constitution, America’s exceptional role, and indeed our country’s very existence, is at risk.  We believe such times demand a robust, comprehensive national security posture appropriate to today’s threats, and tomorrow’s.  Toward …

Kagan

Yesterday I wrote my Congressman regarding the nomination of Elena Kagan to the Supreme Court of the United States.  I told him I hoped he planned to vote against her confirmation, and described some of my reasons.  Today I saw this testimony, and Senator Burr, I hope you heard it, too: A Veteran Puts Kagan …

Conspiracy Theorists Gone Wild!

I don’t know who Mr. Orengo is – he could be a Kenyan Ron Paul – but I find it hilarious to read this in an official (Kenyan) government document, over two weeks old, having heard not a peep about it on the news. If America was living in a situation where they feared ethnicity …

Race: American

I just filled out my 2010 census form. I didn’t hesitate to check “Some other race” in response to question 9, and write in “American”. I invite every American to do the same, regardless of ancestry. Kudos to Michelle Malkin and Theodore Roosevelt.

Late Friday Night

In the last year, how many times can you recall the phrase “in a statement released late Friday night” in reference to some embarrassing tidbit released by the Obama administration? Too many, certainly. This morning, it was the new muslim envoy to yet another radical islamic nutjob group (why do we seem to have so …

Was that a deadline?

Make no mistake (and damn do I hate that phrase), I have no desire to see the maggots housed in the cells in Guantanamo released anywhere in the world, let alone inside the continental United States. That being said, I just cannot resist the urge to point out another failure of Barry and Co. Obama …

Saturday Night Politics

Nancy kept the House in session late on a Saturday in order to twist enough arms to get her nearly 2000 page POS passed. Harry is planning to do the same to the Senate this weekend. Does anyone still believe this health care fiasco is above board, proper, legal, and necessary? BOHICA, America. This is …

Tainting the Pool

It occurred to me on my drive to work today, that Obama’s statements yesterday would only make it harder to put terrorists on in New York City. He referred to, basically, ‘a fair trial and a speedy execution’. No lawyer in the world would neglect to bring this up at trial. A quick check now …

Embarrassing

Dear Mr. President, When are you going to stop being such an ass-clown and start performing even the most basic diplomatic tasks in the manner prescribed? This is not how you gain the respect of the world. I’m seriously starting to believe this is some sort of “alien race agrees to pass on the secrets …
