Voting "None of the Above"

March 3rd 2014 21:36
This is a good idea:

A bill that would add the option of choosing “none of the above” on New Hampshire ballots seems like a quintessential proposal for the first-in-the-nation presidential primary state that prides itself on having discerning voters.

I like it. Too often, I felt that I had to vote for the lesser of two (or more) evils. If we had the opportunity to vote "none of the above," it could allow us to express our discontent with the choices available to us. It would essentially be a vote of "no confidence" if "none of the above" received the most votes.

I can't imagine this kind of thing could happen on any grand scale, but I think it would be a valuable tool in gauging the public's true views.

Liz Cheney is out

January 6th 2014 18:52
It looks like there won't be another Cheney in office in the near future:

Liz Cheney announced early Monday morning that she was withdrawing from the Wyoming Republican Senate primary, bringing an abrupt end to her unsteady challenge to the incumbent, Michael B. Enzi
.
I'm glad she's out. I don't particularly care for her politics because she's a neocon (like her father). She would gleefully inject the US into other countries' political quagmires and involve us in endless wars.

Also, I'm tired of political families. We shouldn't elect any more Bushes, Clintons, or Kennedys -- and Dick Cheney destroyed any good will that his family name could've carried (ditto that times 100 for the Obama family name at this point, too).

No offense, Mrs. Cheney, but get out and find a productive job. We can fare better as a country without the "benefit" of your political acumen.

Obama -- Error 404

November 9th 2013 15:23
I like cleverness. This is clever. Click here to see what I'm talking about:

Remind Democrats that Obamacare was a mistake with our 404 error bumper sticker – the same error message Americans are seeing each day when trying to logon to Healthcare.gov.

To extend the metaphor, I vacillate between whether Obama's ENTIRE presidency is best represented by a 404 error or by a computer virus.

Or perhaps he just needs more memory or a better processor.

One thing is certain -- we need an upgrade.

Maybe all of the above are true. It just depends on what's happening on a given day. Our "Dear Leader" is versatile in that respect.

It that title provocative? Maybe. Is it true? Definitely.

Good sign for GOP

October 12th 2013 02:57
This is good news. The GOP (well, the Tea Party wing of the GOP) is no longer jumping through hoops to satisfy big business:

Having failed to persuade their traditional Republican allies in Congress to avert a government shutdown, business leaders fear bigger problems ahead, and they're taking sides with a Democratic president whose health care and regulatory agenda they have vigorously opposed.

Amnesty group falls apart

September 21st 2013 03:07
It's sad when the best thing that happens in Washington is what they FAIL to accomplish:

The road to overhauling the nation's immigration laws became even more difficult Friday when two Republicans abandoned a bipartisan group that had been working to craft a solution in the House of Representatives.

Detroit and Obama

July 27th 2013 18:27
In last year's presidential election, Obama mercilessly mocked Mitt Romney for saying that we should let Detroit go bankrupt. He used the statement as a tool to show that Romney was heartless and incapable of leading this nation.

While Romney was talking mainly about the car companies in Detroit, his statement also applied very well to the municipality of Detroit itself

Mete out some justice to Holder

May 30th 2013 01:46
Eric Holder has been a partisan hack from the day he took office at the Department of Justice. Now, his duplicity appears to have caught up to him. He may have committed perjury by lying to Congress. The writers at Power Line reach this conclusion:

Paul quoted Richard Nixon’s statement that perjury is “an awful hard rap to prove,” and because perjury is so dependent on the defendant’s state of mind, Nixon was right. Still, in this instance there appears to be a sound basis to investigate whether Holder should be criminally prosecuted.

Really, South Carolina? Really?

April 4th 2013 00:23
This guy won the GOP primary? Really, South Carolina? Are you serious? The guy cheated on his wife, abandoned his kids, and quit the state. And you give him another chance?

I'm all for forgiveness, but isn't there someone who can run for office who isn't a cheat or a scoundrel

Seriously. What part of "we're broke" doesn't Obama understand? They could take EVERY dollar made by every upper and middle class American and it still wouldn't erase our debt.

on Obama sacked by Romney

October 5th 2012 03:47
Thanks, Lester and SL. I was very pleased with Romney's performance. Where has THIS Romney been for the last couple of months? Well, I'm just glad he's here now. He'd better not get overconfident, though. Obama and his evil minions will unleash holy heck as a result of this poor showing -- much like a cornered animal.

An investigation by one part of the administration protects the leaders in another part of the administration. I'm shocked. SHOCKED.

Obama doesn't have time to meet with Netanyahu, SL. He has to meet with Letterman.

Obama just wants to stop Netanyahu from bombing Iran before our election. Hey, it's not like Israel's very existence is on the line.

Oh, wait. IT IS ON THE LINE. Obama just thinks that him clinging to power is more important than an ally's existence.

Will Jewish voters continue to support Obama? After this -- and after the Dems roundly booed any support towards Israel in the Democratic platform? If so, they deserve the insults and disrespect that they get.

Lester, it's hard not to think that. Every move Obama makes these days pits groups against each other and grows government to unsustainable levels.

It's pathetic, SL. Thankfully, most folks can see through their partisan shilling. It's still aggravating, though.

on The Case for Obama

September 12th 2012 22:12
He's fighting for the middle class? He just passed this "administrative amnesty" that will dump 1.7 million new workers to compete with the unemployed and underemployed. How is that looking out for the middle class?

Obama's a traitor and an incompetent joke of a leader. The GOP sucks, but Obama has stabbed AMERICANS in the back.

The media, of course, is failing to call Obama out for his apology tour. He's a pathetic excuse for a president and no leader at all.

on Our tax dollars

July 20th 2012 03:12
Michael, it's remarkable to me how anyone can look at the EVIDENCE and think government is the answer to our problems. That's not to say that private industry is without flaws or that we should do away with government entirely (far from it), but government MUST be controlled and minimized whenever possible.

Reagan:
"Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it."

"No government ever voluntarily reduces itself in size. Government programs, once launched, never disappear. Actually, a government bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life we'll ever see on this earth!"

"The nine most terrifying words in the English language are, 'I'm from the government and I'm here to help."
