So what happens when media mogul, Glenn Beck makes a big show of leaving the Republican Party? The establishment GOP, or RINOs as I prefer to call them, decide to send out the Architect (of now two consecutive presidential losses), Karl Rove! To poke a stick in Beck’s eye.
“On Friday, Rove appeared on The O’Reilly Factor and mocked Glenn Beck’s announcement earlier in the week that he was leaving the Republican Party. ‘The Republican Party is largely united on its philosophy,’ Rove told O’Reilly, an assertion with which many conservatives vehemently disagree.”
Sooner or later the GOP may actually grow a pair…not one for each elected official, just one that perhaps they can share. Maybe like those gnarly ones you see hanging from the back of a beat up pickup truck. The RINOs really think that they can just hold on and regain the Senate in November. I am not so sure with shenanigans like they pulled in Mississippi allowing…no encouraging…no begging Democrats to vote in the primary against the TEA Party candidate will leave many of us conservatives with a very bad taste in our mouths. I am having a hard time looking forward to Mitch McConnell as Senate Majority Leader. Dine on these fine quotes from Mitch recently;
News briefs are a collection of interesting news stories. This edition is all about lies that liers tell to lie to you;
Brief 1: The attempt Tuesday to use a legal procedure to recall a governor who is not accused of illegal activities failed and Republican Governor Scott Walker won bigger than his original election. Events (AND NEWS STORIES) leading up to the election seemed to predict a very tight race. That’s the LIE. Walker cruised to a win and now the democrat media machine is trying to make the win all about money. They even are fudging the figures to make it look like the Republicans outspent the democrats. This is BIG news and a BIG win for TEA Party folks. If you want proof that this was a very important election look at this loaded quote from ABC Mews the day before the election;
Like a chicken with its head cut off, Time Magazine continues to thrash about without a brain with yet another uninspiring “Man of the Year” cover. Not only was the selection of “The Protester” further indication of the leftist agenda, but their honored protesters are more famous for their damage than their courage as evidenced by their propensity to hide their identity as they “brave” their opposition. Brave in this case means mob as that is what they are.
As the Republican presidential race heats up (a little) it has become interesting to see how the candidates fates slide up and down. There seems to be no doubt that Mitt Romney is the choice of RINOs, the left, and the main stream media. I agree with them that Romney will be a great candidate…for Obama to beat. We had the ascension of Bachman only to see her blow a tire with her position that the Gardasil somehow causes mental retardation (I know she thought she walked back the comment, but she kept repeating it. The media is off the hook and no longer have to dedicate resources to destroy her.
I’ve had my share of nicknames in the past. Some nice; some not so nice or flattering. Every time I got a nickname it was usually “given” by a friend or close acquaintance. I don’t think even the less likable ones were really meant to harm me or truly disparage me. In the last two plus years I have been called all sorts of names because I believe that I am Taxed Enough Already. I don’t belong to any particular TEA Party though I have gone to a few rallies. I hope that my blog affirms my belief in the principles of the Constitution, the free market, and good old capitalism.

Brief 1: Call out the “gender pedagogues” as the heading of this post News “Briefs” may not be gender neutral. Actually the gender pedagogues were hired by the Edalia preschool in Stockholm Sweden “to help staff identify language and behavior that risk reinforcing stereotypes” so that boys are no longer boys and girls are no longer girls…they are all referred to as “friends.” How cute! And when visitors come they don’t refer to “him” or “her” they call them “he
Politicians succeed by engaging us with truths (usually only half truths) to get us riled up for their cause which is ultimately about getting them reelected. Few politicians care about anything more than achieving this goal. They avoid the tough decisions while decrying that the other side won’t make the tough decisions. The good news for American citizens is that we have a free press that sorts out complex issues and will not let politicians get away with the half truths. Okay that was dripping with sarcasm, but I am a dreamer and that is the way our country is supposed to work.
It is rare that I find a short, well-written, interesting, and informative book that I can read in one sitting. Thanks to authors Ori Brafman and Rod Beckstrom for achieving that goal with The Starfish and the Spider. Brafman and Beckstrom make a strong case for the positive aspects of leaderless organizations (the Starfish) as opposed to more traditional top down entities (the Spiders). In a nutshell when you lop the “head” off of a spider it is dead, however when you try the same with a starfish you find there is no head and if you cut it up you end up with more starfish. Starfish are decentralized.
No longer relegated to 60 Minutes or Dateline NBC to nab crooks, perverts, and household scammers. Extra-ordinary citizens have become empowered to expose corruption and lies that the main stream media will not. Perhaps the worst type of people are those who present a public image, but when the “cameras” are off they expose themselves among friends and like-minded people. Sometimes the “cameras”, microphones, or even cell phones are still recording and I would like to celebrate those who venture to expose the true feelings of elitists. The weird thing about Bill Clinton was that I always had this feeling that he was this type of person, but I have been shocked that there had never been a smoking gun tape showing this. Either he is genuine or is really good…I feel that he is really good.
