  • The REAL GOPe Agenda

    4/6/2016 | Rustybucket
    Our coffee club conservative meeting yielded an unusual conclusion, that some thought everyone knew. The GOPe are pushing for Cruz, but not for the reason some people think. They, In Our Opinion, don’t want Trump to win the nomination because he could/would win against any Clinton/Sanders contest, whereas Cruz, would not win against either of the Democratic contenders. So they are not backing a winner, they are purposely pushing for the Republican that will lose against the Establishment candidate, probably Clinton. Why would they do this? To keep Washington exactly as it is, and understand, they don’t give a Da!m...
  • Your Predictions: By Which Primary Will Jeb Bush Finally Bow Out And Throw Support To Ted Cruz?

    03/29/2015 12:21:57 PM PDT · by Cruz_West_Paul2016 · 92 replies
    And unless there are any changes, this is the order. Iowa, New Hampshire,Colorado,Minnesota,New York,Utah.Then from Feb.6 thru Feb.23,we have Nevada,South Carolina,North Carolina and Michigan on the 23rd. Obviously the odds of Bush even winding up in the top three are about the same as the odds of Joe Biden taking the Democrat Nomination in 2016. The far left media will probably keep Bush in the top three with their "Left Leaning Polls". Should be interesting to watch their reactions when Jeb wont even make the top four in Iowa.
  • Did You Know That Houses In Detroit Are Cheaper Than Used Cars?

    07/24/2013 8:16:58 AM PDT · by pinochet · 43 replies
    Fifty years of socialist rule in Detroit has achieved a revolution in cheap housing. Because 60 percent of the population of Detroit fled from the city because of high crime rates, there are more houses than people in Detroit. This article from Bloomberg Businessweek says that you can buy a house in Detroit for $6,000. http://www.businessweek.com/the_thread/hotproperty/archives/2009/03/the_median_home.html This is less than what most people pay for a used car. Advocates of "affordable housing" must be very happy.

    Detroit --- Why? A few years back I received a link to pictures of Hiroshima after August 6, 1945 followed by pictures of Hiroshima today. Hiroshima today was a brightly lit sprawling modern city. The pictured continued with pictures of Detroit today for comparison with Hiroshima today. I was curious about what caused a diminishing Detroit but at the same time, I was suspicious if the pictures were accurate. Over time, I read a few articles that supported the pictures I had seen. The events of late regarding Detroit filing bankruptcy makes me more curious. I have my own opinion...

    When the Sanford, Florida PD investigated George Zimmerman 's claims of self defense all the evidence supported his claims. They handled the case exactly as they would any similar case. When a mob appeared threatening to burn Sanford to the ground Sanford's gutless and spineless City Commissioners told the chief of police to throw Zimmerman to the mob, we don't want our windows broken or our customers scared away. The chief stood up for the law, as he was sworn to do and they fired him. They demoted the lead investigator because he would not lie for them. The noise...

    When you start to think about Holder sending workers to Florida to drum up protests, and Obama not on the ticket in 2014, did Obama orchestrate this otherwise 'open and close' self defense incident for political reasons? Did he do it to drive blacks to the polls in 2014? I'm beginning to think this is the worst abuse of power I've ever seen in my lifetime.

    It is time for a dishwasher. My last dishwasher was replaced three times by the manufacturer before I ripped it out and started handwashing. time to go back to dishwashers and I cannot find a timed dishwasher, just ones that are ENERGY EFFIEICENT with sensors. The biggest problem I had with the newer untimed dishwashers is that I would have to rinse the dishes instead of scraping them. the second problem is that because I did not rinse them, they ran for six to eight hours becaus there was debris that the sensors picked up. Lousy design. I am looking...

    President ObamaObama, though, offered specific proposals only in reference to the latter. He called on Congress to pass "common-sense legislation," which he said should include an assault-weapons ban and a ban on high-capacity magazines.Ok, Mr. Obama. You go first. Issue an executive order removing military-style weapons and high-capacity magazines from the Secret Service agents guarding you. Mayor Bloomberg“Instead of offering solutions to a problem they have helped create, they offered a paranoid, dystopian vision of a more dangerous and violent America where everyone is armed and no place is safe,” Mayor Bloomberg said.Ok, Doomberg, you go first.

    We've only heard talk and do not know if this is true but it certainly must be, given Obama's shabby and insulting treatment of the Speaker in fiscal cliff negotiations. The latest reports from the Wall Street Journal and other sources indicate Obama has threatened Boehner and republicans with a throw-down public humiliation during Inaugural and SOTU addresses, unless Obama gets his way. Why would the Speaker invite the President (which is only done by recent tradition since the age of TV, iirc) into his house to allow him to soil his hosts ? To do so is tantamount to...

    We're ( The U.S.) going in the direction of Europa in every other facet of our existence. This is most definitely the next step and those of us responsible gun owners that revolt or even balk will be the lunatics in grave need of sensitivity training, intense scrutiny, and re-education at the VERY least. I wonder what type of psychotropic drugs this guy was on. You DO realize that there is a very small percent of all of the shootings of this type in which the perpetrators were NOT under the care of a mental healthcare provider. I say re-direct...

    A good number of you responded to a vanity that I posted a week ago consisting of an email I sent to my father in law who was threatening to disown me for switching "sides" and voting "R" in the last election. He wrote back, and although I'll save you from having to read the extensive drivel that is his email to me, I'm posting my response back to him. Excerpts from his email are in italics. This is even longer than the first one, so if you're not interested in reading all that, I more than understand. I did...

The main question is this : How do we address those within and outside the scientific community who insist we must have Obama and fellow militant leftist Democrats in power otherwise STEM research and development and cancer and other medical research in this country will...

    It's time for me to pay the piper. It has been observed that the best editorial work keeps the author out of the opinion, and speaks only to the issues of the day. It will be impossible for me to do this, in this editorial, because I must address my own predictions. You see, I've made a series of predictions, of which only a handful seem to have been realized. It's time to hold myself accountable. In this article, "HEY MITT! Expect, From Obama, These Four Things At the Debate Tonight!(October 16, 2012)", I tell Mitt to expect four things....

    After each debate I like to watch MSNBC Morning Joe to see how they try to spin things. Imagine my surprise when I tuned in a few minutes ago and saw Tom Brokaw trashing Biden's debate performance. Mika and the gang (including Joe) tried to use the 'We all know Joe personally, and he is a really nice guy' routine, but Brokaw was not biting. He said Biden was so off putting in his behavior that the undecided voters would not be moved towards Obama after watching the debate. Everyone on the show agreed that both men passed the 'one...

    The media has been in a slumber for the last 4 years; not that the world has been quiet. We have lived in a world replete with economic collapse, international conflict, and social unrest, a time of tribulations and consequence, the likes of which we have not seen in over 70 years. But a media which gleans only what it desires to further a socialist agenda has found no purchase on these stories. They had achieved their goal of placing a true socialist in the Presidency, and no bad news, no bad outcomes would be spoken of during his realm....
  • Joe's Middle Class Family out $1294+ Next Year

    Joe's middle class family has a taxable income of a meager $17,399 and he barely gets by. So he was dismayed to find out he was getting a 50% Federal Tax rate increase. On top of this, he learned there was to be a 30% increase in his social security tax payments. But he really began to cry when he saw his bare bones medical insurance premium skyrocket due to Obama's "Affordable" Care Act" (PPACA). Joe really wants everyone to let the Democrats know how he feels this November.
