More and more, are Progressives pushing for a different kind of “Cliff”? Careful what you fear monger…

by Skip January 8, 2013

I put this post up yesterday (“I really hope that Kelly Ayotte, BFF with John McCain, is not playing this game”) after seeing what Captain’s Quarters had posted about a possible end run around the US Senate rules as they stand right now – but it would lend itself to passing all kinds of mischief […]

Somehow, most of us DO think the Feds have a spending problem, Mr. Obama!

by Skip January 8, 2013

“What stunned House Speaker John Boehner more than anything else during his prolonged closed-door budget negotiations with Barack Obama was this revelation: “At one point several weeks ago,” Mr. Boehner says, “the president said to me, ‘We don’t have a spending problem.’” …Under this scenario, federal spending would average 23% of GDP over the next […]

What a Feminist Looks Like

by Steve MacDonald January 8, 2013

Show of hands.  Who has not seen Ashley Judds…um…Judds?  And not for nothing, but she got paid to show them to you.  Just saying.

The Principled Conservative Who Is Gradually Building His Position

Quelle horreur! Mon Dieu! Gor Blimey! What could be going on here? Well, it turns out that government mandates tend to have unintended consequences, in this case, increased Ozone […]
