“We’re WINNING”!!! Then a gun incident happens. WHAT A COINCIDENCE!!!

This kind of sh!t always seems to happen. Anything to distract. Just a random act of violence. AGAIN!

Thank you for that bit of history regarding Dole.

McCain is our new Dole. They are like the damn Sith lords; you’re never rid of them.

As I get older, my stories of things I remember are now becoming history.

I was lucky to be among the participants. Cruz was speaking and magnificent as usual but I could not stay on the phone

Ted Cruz is dangerous to Obama and the main stream media because he can cut through their rhetorical bias. On three different occasions, with three different MSM Obamabot interviewers, Ted Cruz smiled and said:

“I REJECT THE PREMISE OF YOUR QUESTION.” Outstanding!

He destroys their line of biased inquiry and presents the issues in his own way, using the assumptions of the Constitution, free markets, freedom, liberty, and Western Civilization.

That’s how you stop the Marxists: on page one by rejecting their assumptions. Cruz is a sophisticated intellectual who can communicate complex issues simply and powerfully. He is very threatening to the totalitarian crowd.

Cruz is exactly right.

And to think that about 6 weeks ago, Mark Levin and Ted Cruz broached the idea as “our last chance to stop Obamacare.”

I remember Krauthammer and the rest of the pundits saying it couldn’t be done.

I’d rather risk going down fighting with Cruz than side with the bunch of spineless pansy suckup RINO’s we have had to live with these last few years. Keep talking Ted!

I voted for the Cruz-missile. He is on target and packs a wallop.

You called that one right. What in the world is up with the cops shooting a woman with a small child in the car? She had no weapon. I’m sorry I’m just not able to get behind this one. The FOX news panel was practically cheering her shooting. I don’t get it. They could have shot her tires out then arrested her. This is totally bizarre.

I was wondering if the guards around the real birth certificate are on duty. Might be an opportunity for Sheriff Joe.

Thanks Cincinatus' Wife.
"Why are they screaming so loudly? Why are they so personal? Why are they so filled with hate and fear? It’s because the American people are mobilized, are passionate and energized," he said. "And even worse, [they] understand that Obamacare is hurting millions of Americans, and that has the left terrified out of their minds."

I hear you, but it’s not 1995 anymore. Today we have Al Gores’ internet, and the Tea Party, to name two critical differences.

I would take the demographics and electorate of 1995 America over today's America any day of the week. That country, just 18 years ago, would have laughed at the prospect of a marxist chicago muslim trying to be president. That country is gone. The Tea Party arose because a huge chunk of the country has gone socialist, been overrun by immigrants, legal or otherwise, or is just plain ignorant, uneducated and uninformed, a product of the education system. What I'm saying is we had more to work with then than we do now in terms of political muscle, and still we were saddled with puppy dog Rinos and a media that twisted the facts.

So, while I appreciate that the internet has helped somewhat in educating and informing conservatives, to a great extent it is preaching to a choir that is shrinking. We may have time to turn things around, but we have a much smaller margin for error than we did back then.

“Sen. John Cornyn, Texas Republican, firing a warning shot back at Mr. Reid by reading a passage from Senate rules that forbids disparaging the motives of fellow senators.”

Oh now that was ballsy.

I would have told Reid to go screw himself.

“What in the world is up with the cops shooting a woman with a small child in the car? She had no weapon.”

It is a byproduct of the continued militarization of the nation’s police forces. Especially since 9/11.

I still have a feeling of unease at how easily the cops felt justified to execute this poor woman and orphan her child. I believe it was wrong. I wonder where Al and Jesse are?
