The Tea Party is living rent-free in Bev’s head

The alleged mainstream media (MSM) spends a lot of time and energy trying to tell us that the Tea Party is an extremist fringe who should not be taken seriously. The word “tea” is an acronym for “Taxed Enough Already.”  The activists who align themselves with the Tea Party —…

9/11: Why we should never forget. Why we should keep fighting.

The alleged mainstream media (MSM) is beside itself — pretending to be patriotic — as it commemorates the 10th anniversary of the 9/11/01 mass murders in New York, DC and Pennsylvania.  They talk about the event like it was a terrible storm, like Hurricane Katrina. Barry-O tells us we need…

Meet “The Donkey Whisperer” …

I’m a big fan of Cesar Milian, The Dog Whisperer, and his show on The National Geographic Channel.  I’ve picked up a few tricks from Cesar to help keep my favorite pooch in line. Well, a Texas Republican congressional candidate, Roger Williams, has put out an ad that is a…

Rethinking Romney ….

I know I gave major props to Mitt Romney in an earlier post about “job creation” and the silly season.  An editorial in today’s Wall Street Journal has me rethinking that praise: Mitt Romney rolled out a major chunk of his economic agenda yesterday, and we’ll say this for it:…
