Employee Takes “Her Shot”

Bad headline FoxNews.com. If someone quickly read the following headline, what would your first reaction be? Yeah, my thoughts exactly. I’m assuming that this Jacksonville goof ball was involved in a workplace shooting. That’s not the case at all. Here’s the full story, and an excerpt. When Marie Lupe Cooley, 41, of Jacksonville, Fla., saw […]

Legalized Theft – by the Feds

The term economic stimulus is being tossed all over the place the last few days. Stimulating the economy can be done many ways, and the best way to do that would be to reduce the size of government, reduce the tax burden and reduce the amount of business over-regulation. The stimulus being touted today, described […]

Duncan Hunter Endorses Who?

I’m not quite certain what to think of this, but Rep. Duncan Hunter, former Republican candidate for president – that almost nobody has ever heard of – exited the race earlier this week (or last week) and has endorsed Gov. Mike Huckabee. I’m scratching my head on this one, and so is Michelle Malkin. The […]

Fred Thompson to Leave Republican Race for President

Update: He’s out. It looks like Fred is out. He started off slow and never really got going. Some people might say that he did not want it bad enough. Personally, I think he really wanted to serve, but it was not in his nature to deal with all of the crap that was required […]

Can Hugo Destroy Venezuela in Record Time?

Hugo Chavez is on a mission. A mission to destroy the country of Venezuela and crush the spirit of the people. Here we have an emerging socialist country, doing it’s best to emulate the failure of Castro’s Cuba, and Chavez may just be able to pull it off in record time. In 2003, price controls […]

Border Patrol Agent Killed in Arizona

From signonsandiego.com: A U.S. Border Patrol agent was killed yesterday morning when he was intentionally struck by a Hummer fleeing law enforcement officers in the Imperial Sand Dunes near Yuma, Ariz. This happened on Saturday morning, with news breaking probably about 24 hours ago. Look, […]

Temperature Control in California – DOA

An initiative to control the thermostats of private homes and businesses has bit the dust. Investor’s Business Daily had a good review of the proposal on Jan. 15 – only three days ago – and to say that people freaked out about the Big Brother concept is an understatement. The California Energy Commission has proposed […]

Second Amendment Reminder for Obama

Let’s take a quick look at the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, and then let’s remind the Democrat candidates for president about the amendment. Amendment 2 A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed. Take […]

Huckabee on Illegal Aliens – As of Today…

I really do not like politicians. They never seem to give you a straight answer, and if you are part of Clinton Inc., the standard operating procedure on any issue is to wet your finger and stick it up in the air. If you’re in Alabama, the answer to a question is yes; in Wyoming, […]
