Where you are held accountable for your convictions and record

With all the talk of using the “Nuclear Option” to pass Obamacare, Breitbart.tv has posted a video clip of how Democrat leaders view using reconciliation to pass legislation in the Senate.

Senator calls for investigation of Al Gore!

Probably can’t happen until January, but we can wait – it will be here before we know it.

UPDATE: The Nine Lies of the Father of Climate Fraud

Al Gore Is Lying Low – For Good Reason

Hey speaking of profiting from a pack of lies, let’s not forget our local gal, Andrea “who likes to make money” McGimsey. Maybe there’s an area for investigation.

UPDATE II: A Pending American Temperaturegate. How much are you willing to pay in taxes to offset “global warming,” fellow Americans?

The old war horse has not lost a step. His argument skewers the current administration with a wit devoid of anger, angst and venom. Takes notes people, this is how a conservative message aught to be woven.

The Gay Problem

76 comments

Fellow conservatives, are we really having this conversation … Now?

All I can say is: criminy and double criminy. People are off track.

Are gay conservatives a big enough problem to divert attention from our other REALLY SERIOUS problems? I realize this is going to cause some heartburn, but right now I do not care.

To wit: The Obama Administration is talking about confiscating your retirement money and 401k funds

If you haven’t gotten the joke so far, what’s being suggested is that 401K and IRA accounts be converted to fixed-income instruments, and that some portion (or even the entire balance) be allocated to (wait for it) Treasuries.

By all means, read all of that and follow his links.

I don’t know about you. I’ve spent my share of time on public policy debates related to this issue – in the past. But right now is it not evident we have bigger fish to fry and is it not evident we should seek common ground with people who agree with us about clear and present dangers to our lives and futures? Shouldn’t a sense of proportion kick in where we say the debates of 2007 are oh, so three years ago?

Even though I will always oppose special status for self-elevated identity-based interest groups I just can’t stay angry enough about homosexuality to oppose everything gay people do, everywhere, in every instance. So when a “gay” group shows up at a conservative event and the individuals within it are on board with the overarching goals, it just strikes me as insane to be impolite to them.

What the f–k, people? I mean, what the f–k? Is it the case that we are overflowing with sensible folks who will take time to go to a grassroots event and commit to saving our country? Are there really TOO MANY of those comrades in arms? You actually BOO people who show up willing to work?

It makes me sick and it paints the picture of how the road to serfdom becomes a reality for all of us.

Get this: Conservatives can kiss off “Hot Air” blog

Unbelievable. Notions that suggest “cutting nose to spite face” or “selling children to appease resentments”. The issue of the day is not what people do in their bedrooms. The issue is whether we will continue to allow the wealth of our country to be squandered for generations into the future.

YOU ARE GOING TO LOSE YOUR RETIREMENT SAVINGS, DUMBASSES, AND YOU WILL END YOUR LIVES EATING CAT FOOD. There are people willing to stand by you to forestall that future. Do you really want to ensure the former by framing the latter as demons?

Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli took a gutsy and intelligent step Feb. 17 when he petitioned the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to reconsider its ill-advised “finding” that carbon dioxide creates an endangerment for human health.

“Attorney General Cuccinelli believes that the EPA acted in an arbitrary and capricious fashion and failed to properly exercise its judgment by relying almost exclusively on reports from the IPCC [Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, an arm of the United Nations] in attributing climate change to [human-caused] greenhouse gas emissions,” the AG’s office explains. “The IPCC is an international body that is not subject to U.S. data quality and transparency standards and the IPCC prepared their reports in total disregard to U.S. Standards.”

The EPA’s actions were based upon data that we now know was tainted, and must be looked at in a new light. It is about time someone made this correlation, and filed for further scientific review.

Redesign

Don’t ask. Just trust me the old one was not working right.

UPDATE: Oh, yeah … fellow bloggers, you will notice the current placeholder design does not show who wrote a post so if you want anyone to know who wrote it you will need to do something like the following at the bottom of each post:

Love,

Joe

P.S. Since the current placeholder design DOES have the feed working and also does not totally screw up formatting, and since as some of you know I am a little preoccupied right now with things outside this blog, I may end up letting this design ride for a while so we’ll have to get used to the workarounds and inconvenience for a spell.
