- Dispelling liberal myths, the Tea Party is not racist and the right is not the realm of homophobes and misogynists
- Sean Hannity shows generosity, pays Obamacare worker fired for talking to him
- A country that does not control its borders….Is no longer a country
- Republicans can say 'we told you so' as Obamacare is inflicted on America
- The House Republicans are the adults in the room when it comes to debt talks
Since 2010, Wisconsin has been ground zero in the battle for the political future of America.
Wisconsin citizens found their backs against the wall after years of rule by the left. Fed up with ever increasing entitlement spending, with debt burdens spiraling their tax bill out of control, in 2010 they voted for a new governor. They also gave the new governor a majority in the legislature. Together they worked to restore fiscal sanity by balancing the budget and taking back control from the unions who ruled the state.
Since 2010, Democrats and their allies in the unions poured everything they had to cripple the legislative process. They occupied the streets of Madison with 100,000 protesters and jammed the capitol building with mobs nearly making it impossible to conduct legislation. In spite of these roadblocks, legislation was passed bringing change to Wisconsin, that had not been seen in years
For months the student had listened to the teacher during "open discussions" rant on about President Obama's virtues among other topics and would not tolerate any dissent. It was basically a one way conversation and not an open discussion if you disagreed with her political beliefs.
Tonya Dixon-Neely, a teacher at North Rowan High School in North Carolina, caught on video scolding a student for speaking negatively about President Obama, has now been suspended, of course with pay....In the private sector this is called paid vacation.
Americas reliable energy resources are being attacked on all levels. When was the last time a nuclear power plant was built in America? Even hydro electric dams are under assault & being torn down in the name of environmentalism. Energy Secretary Steven Chu said he would like to see our gasoline prices the same as Europeans. Of course environmentalists on the left have been waging war on coal, oil and gas for years.
This mindset couldn't have been any more apparent when I was attacked for writing a column about governments "war on coal".
An environmentalist had his simplistic answer to my column on the war on coal. He just claimed that "coal kills" and people needed to revert to a simpler lifestyle, use less energy and make that energy "green". He bragged how he used wood to heat his home, along with wind and solar. He tried to stay "off the grid" as much as possible, in the rural lifestyle he enjoys. Of course on further questioning, he did admit to the use of "auxiliary power" in order to supplement his off the grid lifestyle for cooking and refrigeration.
New polls show there has been an eight point shift in Mitt Romney s favor ability with women. Previously President Obama had the momentum with women scoring 49-43% over GOP challenger Mitt Romney. But there has been a tremendous swing towards Romney showing he is ahead in this key demographic, being favored 48-46%, over President Obama.
The months of portraying Republicans as "waging a war on women" by keeping them, metaphorically and literally, barefoot and pregnant, has backfired on Democrat strategists. Todays polls show their "chickens are coming home to roost."
The reason their scheme has failed? Because there is no war on women, real or imaginary by the GOP, or Mitt Romney.
The Tea Party surfaces and flexes its political muscle at election time. The Tea Party has galvanized Americans into action without occupying one city or breaking one merchants window...They're working within the system to affect change where it matters, at the political level.
Tuesdays elections were a wake up call for the political establishment in America. Even more so for the main stream media who were busy trying to bury the Tea Party with stories of them becoming irrelevant. But while they focused their attention on our cities under assault by the "Occupy Movement", the Tea Party was busy organizing it's forces and preparing for elections.
But there's so much more to him, from his civil rights activist father, his own philanthropy, his problem solving abilities and his unheralded selflessness. I am wondering why he hasn't aggressively gotten this part of his message out. Is it that he is a self effacing man who doesn't like to promote his good deeds? Perhaps that's it.
In late March the first sketchy reports reached civilization about a surreal scene in a remote backwoods Colorado cabin. Two snowshoers intending on spending the night in the rustic cabin, opened the door to discover it was packed with frozen cows. Immediately many people rushed to the conclusion this was the work of cults in some sort of bizarre Stephen King scenario.
But sadly for conspiracy theorists and even sadder for the cows, forest service officials pieced together the scenario that lead to the untimely demise of the hapless bovines in the wilderness.
Cattle are allowed to graze on National Forest lands, so many ranchers take advantage of this and let their livestock roam the mountains fattening up on the lush grass they find in the western US. But when autumn comes ranchers round them up from the high country and get them down to the valleys before the heavy snow hits.
