Why do I suspect that between Dad and his 3 sons there is not one day of military service?

Very astute observation and you are exactly correct.

In fact anytime there is any discussion regarding the military or any politically incorrect topics (black flash mobs, rich elitists & millionaires & billionaires for demoRATs not Repubs, union thugs & goons attacking people, corrupt voting practices by the demoRATs, etc) my boss always gets this real smirky look on his face. His youngest son (now a junior at UW-Madison) is the most radical of all.... a real snobbish elitist a__hole. He proudly describes himself as a socialist. I would love to rub last night's election in his face... "Gee what happened? $30 million pumped into the elections by unions plus millions more raised by the demoRAT candidates & PACs, and yet they were resoundingly rejected. What happened"?

If Darling holds we lose the zipper and the guy in the liberal district. And the unions spend valuable millions to remain a minority in a blue state. That would be a fine night.

Went to bed last night, just got to the computer to find that we, indeed had a 'fine night.'

GOOD GOING, WISCONSIN!

(Fight on for your fame. :)

I hope this recall back and forth doesn't become just part of the voting process now.

I predict this will become a primary strategy and practice by the demoRATs from here on out, not only in WI but other states as well. That way they can always keep the Repubs in constant campaigning mode, rather than fixing & restoring the state budgets. The unions & WI demoRATs have already indicated that once Gov Walker hits one year as governor in January, that he is targeted next. The good thing is that with last night's recall elections, in total 55% of the votes cast were for the GOP & re-affirmation for Gov Walker.

Wisconsin is a beacon for us all. They have truly been fighting against the forces of evil.

Praise God that those forces were defeated last night.

Keep praying! This country is not lost yet! God is still at work.

Re-call elections work both ways. There are many areas throughout America where Democrats are vulnerable.

I am glad to eat crow.

Nice to see the GOP only lose two.

I want to thank all of you that were here last night for the updates. I am a wimp and can only see election results through the filter of Free Republic unless it’s a sure thing for our side. I am now exhausted after staying up so late, but it was well worth it. I woke up this morning with a huge smile on my face knowing the unions didn’t win this time and I was very proud of the people of Wisconsin.

I am truly lucky in that respect — my entire family is staunch conservative.

Damn....you are lucky. I wouldn't know how to behave .. LOL

It's a bit tough being the odd man out in a large family, but I'm used to it. I've followed my own compass since I was a young kid, and never was one to go with the flow.

My family learned to expect that of me, but when I became staunchly conservative and (gasp!) Republican, they damn near disowned me.

All that really matters to me, is where my wife and kids' heads are at. They're all fiercely patriotic, and conservative. Even my 7 year old can't stand Obama, and if you ask him, he'll tell you why.

Here are our two cats. Our dog likes to follow and sniff their hair and they don't care. I think the dog thought the skunk was just another cat.
