You get three guesses about which of these headlines/statistics will appear prominently in the lame-stream media…Oh and the first two guesses don’t count.

Tax Cuts Cost More!

GOP tax cut plan to cost $28B more than Dems’ pitch

This headline should alternately make your head explode, make you cry, or piss you off.  Published by the Washington Post (Obama Post) last Thursday (click on the headline to be directed to the full article) it fallaciously attempts to paint the “Dem’s” as cost cutters because, I guess, their tax plan “costs” less. 

ALL POLITICIANS, LAME STREAM MEDIA ELITISTS, LIBERALS, RINOS, OTHER STUPID PEOPLE should note that LETTING US KEEP THE MONEY THAT WE HAVE LEGITIMATELY EARNED SHOULD NOT BE CONSIDERED A FREAKIN COST! 

Saving The World

Many times as I read an article I find a few sentences that capture the essence of the piece. In “Phrase-e-ology” I’ll post some thought followed by key phrases. As always I’ll have a link (in blue) to the original article.  Sadly I find that the better, truer, more honest articles are found in British or Canadian media outlets.  The tilt of America’s lame-stream media is well documented and so far in the tank for liberals it is essentially no longer a “free press” that we can count on for news and information.  The recent victory by Wisconsin’s Governor Scott Walker has been covered though the import has been marginalized by the left media.  The actions by Alabama have been ignored exempt for the British Press;

Just when I thought the lame-stream-media just couldn’t get any worse in their quest to re-elect Barry Sortoro (AKA BHO) ABC News (hardly a news organization anymore) had this headline today;

Coptic Ruse

The Coptic Christians are perhaps some of the most faithful Christians and they have to be as their places of worship seem to in Middle East countries dominated by Islam. As a minority surrounded by many hostile people their faith must be strong. I have to admit that I know very little about this church other than occasional news stories where one of their churches happened to be burned down during Muslim protests.

A recent headline from The Washington Post caught my eye recently,

Crying Over Crying Over Spilled Milk

One of my favorite authors, Thomas Sowell, penned an article critical of the United States Environmental Protection Agency. Ordinarily I would concur with his perspective, but cannot bring myself to “park at his ranch” on this issue (I apologize in advance if I lapse into more farm/country colloquialisms). A local syndicated radio host, Jim Quinn, has taken up the mantle and has been talking about the issue. As is often the case when the lame-stream media take up an issue they only scratch the surface thereby missing the bigger picture. In this case these are two conservatives who I respect. This is an excerpt from Sowell’s Townhall article;

Blinded By The D.C. Lights

While many of us conservatives are not the least bit surprised that Democrat leaders don’t understand the hopes, fears, desires, expectations we have for our country, I have been more than a little surprised at the blindness of so many Republicrats to the same issues.  As a registered Republican (though not for long – can you say independent) I was rather discouraged when our presidential nominee was ordained long before the primary in my state.  Even more perplexing was the fact that Democrat voters and pundits had more say in that selection than millions of registered Republicans.  The turnout in the 2008 election is a testament to the disgust many of us felt, though I swallowed and voted for Palin/McCain.

Separated At Birth – Tweety/Gibbs

 Tweety Bird:  Tweety is, for the most part, a good-natured character happily spending life in his cage or a nest. However, when a cat or other adversary threatens him, he can become downright malicious and devious, even kicking his enemy when he’s down. In many of Tweety’s appearances the bird is shown accompanying his owner, Granny.  His darker side frequently is masked beneath the surface and though “cute” viewers, after a time, start cheering for his adversaries.  Who didn’t want the coyote to catch the roadrunner just once?   Tweety’s catch-phrase;

“I taut I taw a puddy tat”

Who Would You Follow Up That Hill?

Bunker Hill, Trenton, Antietam (Sharpsburg for you southerners), Cold Harbor, Gettysburg, Argonne , Iwo Jima, Midway, Utah Beach, Inchon, Hamburger Hill, Kuwait, Iraq, Afghanistan should mostly be familiar to you as sites where America found glory while many of its sons and daughters gave their last full measure.

These famous battles could not have been won without dedicated military leaders.  You know the guys who would lead the charge up that hill, up the beach, or across that field.  It always intrigued me about how soldiers follow their leaders even though many know that death awaits.  Medals are often given to those that die or are wounded, but not enough is given to those who simply follow and fight.
