Great post..speaking of heathens have you seen the TV show “Duck Dynasty”? I just saw it.

The TV geniuses told the actors ( and owner of the Duck Dynasty) not to show guns and the praying to God this season, people were complaining.

They told them”Then we won’t do the show.”
TV land relented as its got great ratings. HA.HA.

the guns are there and the praying goes on at dinnertime.

When witnessing what this administration has done in such rapid fashion, I can only come to one of two conclusions; Either this Republican Party is as dumb as a bag of rocks or they've enabled these "transitions" to occur.

Seeing that I believe they've been willing enablers, it's not logical to assume they will be willing to role back any of these transitions. I believe both parties would love to see Conservatism dead and buried.

The only means to reform is either by taking over either party or by forming a new party. The latter, though tough, seems to be the only option.

I am quite impressed by those Duck Dynasty fellows.

They are rich, humble and not too proud to pray on TV.

Not necessarily. If they ran and didn’t beat him, Boehner would have stripped them of all committees and parked them in a closet instead of an office.

Personally, I could live with the closet, but if you lose your committees you lose a great deal of your effectiveness.

Shalom, I don’t think any Republican would dare vote for Nancy Pelosi as Speaker, so there would be more votes taken until either Boehner or the challenger dropped out. My understanding is that to win a candidate has to get a majority of the whole House.

The publishing company will be handling that, but yes from what I understand they will be setting me up with radio shows and go from there. I have a friend who has given my manuscript to Glen Beck and will see what he thinks.

I would enjoy doing those shows and talking about a truly free market society.

will you be doing the Talk circuit? That is the problem now. We don't have Mesta, bray, kabar, LucyT and so many others on the talk circuit. We have all the brilliance here and yet we are stuck with the same talking heads who have about 10% of the info/intelligence that we have here.Time for freeper TV!

I'm not giving passes or making huge excuses but all the don't touch zero cause he's black BS actually started with bubba and Hillary.

She had the goods on him and wouldn't pull the string the rest as they say is history.

Bubba said some really dumb stuff in Bluffton,SC during the 08 primary and lost the election for hillary and we got zero.Not that hillary wouldn't have beaten McQueeg as well.

Yes, it was very good (the post). Seemed like a professional journalist of the caliber of Neil Boortz when I first came across his posts on USENET in 1994. I felt it was a shame that you limited your target audience to the choir and mutual admiration society when you could be swaying the undecided and uninformed with what would otherwise be great writing.

Are you a professional journalist? or aspiring journalist or just somebody with a good writing “voice” — albeit with a dash of writer’s Tourette?

I’ve already met them while sharing my just ‘slightly right of moderate’ opinion on a nefarious medical procedure and given the guidelines for staying in their good graces.

I don’t believe I have violated those guidelines, even with my trite LB sand comment as it was a pithy response to somebody telling me to SKA-ROO. Which just goes to prove I can be as trite as the next guy.

I am doubtful that any Republican potential candidate names being floated at this time has any substance beyond exploring for political possibilities and advantage. I voted for Romney because I believed he was an American first and was actually the only GOP candidate in the primary who was capable of winning the national election. IMO none of the other candidates, no matter how likable and possibly more conservative, was capable of the leadership required to actually do justice to the job needing to be done for this Republic. I would vote Mitt again.

The Republican party holds the apparatus for the huge job required to function meaningfully in national elections and I do not see any third party being able to overcome the years it takes to develop a new party. I am a Tea Party supporter and will do what I can to promote and support TP candidates and if that derails the GOP, so be it. I believe in letting the chips fall and putting our country's interests first, always.

My breaking point is the Immigration issue. If each state would publicize and inform their citizens of the consequences to their daily lives if a million or more additional residents are sent to populate their state, the reality would likely sober the present residents who are either complicit in this invasion or unaware of what is happening. Daily lives for state residents will drastically change when the magnitude of population increase impacts their whole social fabric and overwhelms their state govt facilities.
Obama and the forces that put him in place are not alone in trying to overwhelm our present govt. The Republicans have
had years to get meaningful immigration reform enacted and I conclude that their leaders are complicit in keeping the situation corrupt. The voting fraud alone that accompanies the current immigration push will be instant death to the Republican party if enacted.

Time is short for Republicans to do anything but hold the fort until next years election. We have to have strong candidates who can handle the pressure to conform coming from their own party. I do have my limits, as you yourself do. The GOP will take it's base for granted at their own peril.

We do try to keep this thread more civil than others.

However, I note nothing you said as too harsh. To each his own.

Bray is a gifted writer who uses a lot of colorful euphemisms and deliberate misspellings as part of his routine and it adds color. It irks some of the arrogant Leftists—think John Kerry and the Haaaah-vahd elite.

If he was writing for a living, and had to rely on the great unwashed to pay for his stuff so his kids could get shoes, then I’m sure he’d mend his style.

I don’t always agree with everything he writes, but I love him like a brother, and his stuff is good enough to be highlighted every week here.

off topic but wanted to catch you before you took off. Dallas breakin at law office representing whistle blowers who complained of Cheryl Mills (of Benghazi fame and also rep’d Bummba on impeachment) and other high State Dept types to cover up sex scandals etc. Video shows nonchalant walking out with computers. Left valuables.

Maybe Cheryl’s homies?

Wow. This is the first I have heard of this. It really raises some serious questions about who is behind all of this. I know the State Department has indicated that Fedenisn may have taken some classified information when she retired.

I would bet that Jarrett more than Mills could order something like this. The Chicago mafia is fully capable of pulling it off. Another Watergate?

I've taken enough political metric tests to know what I am -- A conservative with strong libertarian tendencies and an unsightly spot of statism regarding certain issues. I reevaluate from time to time but I still can't seem to make that spot of statism go away.

But consider this vis-a-vis the original post ...

How does it comes across to the fence sitters, undecided, those looking for illumination, those trying to fill in the background of their own opinions? When we write isn't that who we are writing too? Or are we just looking for re-affirmation and congratulatory accolades from the like minded?

'nuff said. I promise not to respond anymore to this thread. It was like coming across a fine piece of art but with graffiti all over it. I want to see the art and feel it's message but the graffiti distracts me.

When I see pictures like this and the countless clips of Goober and McCain together, I REALLY wish I had video editing skills and software.

I’d love to see someone put together a video of the two together in their endless joint appearances set to the music of “When a Man Loves a Woman” by Percy Sledge.

Doing the same things, voting the same people back in, is not going to change the party. Recall the standard definition of insanity: Doing the same thing over again and expecting a different result.

[Again, I relinquish the soapbox.]


Good stuff all the same. When I look in the mirror these days I seem to see bruises and welts all over my forehead. It must be from decades of voting for Republicans.

(And, to think. I coulda had a V-8 instead!)

Where do you put Hitler on that list..he governed well initially for a brief time, and then his insanity took over..of course the egomaniacle need for power and control was also his undoing.

Stalin, again a very mixed bag..he got Russia from an agrarian society to a highly industrialized society for WW II..but at a terrible cost and then again the power and control was horrible.


Hitler and Stalin depended on war for their grip on power. Even before firing on other nations they were busy firing on their own political opponents—as Obama does today in a more “civilized” way. But this is NOT governance. Crushing the Republicans (the Jews, the kulaks, the Christians, the Ukranians, etc.) is NOT what people are looking for in a leader.

Slaughtering people is a lot easier than governing them. Governing is really tough stuff.
