    Somebody get this guy on “Shark Tank”! A Missouri resident claims to have the strongest jockstrap in the world — and he’s willing to take a bullet to prove it. Jeremiah Raber, 38, is the mastermind behind Nutshellz, a sports cup that he is marketing to law enforcement, athletes and the armed forces, according to Barcroft. Constructed with “the strongest materials known to man,” the groin protector comes in two models.

    Folks, I received the email below from Gayle Nyberg, the designer and seamstress of the first Three Percent flag. It is an outstanding idea, and one I hope will be duplicated far beyond the readership of this little blog. Fellow Patriots, So simple everyone can easily get behind this project. If you are as disappointed in John Boehner as Speaker of House as we are, I hope you will jump aboard this campaign to let him know how we feel about his gutless performance. Operation Cajones involves printing the attached letter. Sign and send that letter along with a pair...
  • Breaking: White House Backs Down, Obama Will Address Congress Night After GOP Debate

  • Boehner rejects Obama’s request to address Congress

    Speaker John Boehner has rejected Obama’s request to address a joint session of Congress on September 7th to discuss his jobs plan. Boehner has asked that Obama consider the following night instead. According to Politico, Boehner said in a letter to Obama that Sept. 8th would be better “so we can ensure there will be no parliamentary or logistical impediments that might detract from your remarks.” It is important to note that on September 7, the GOP Presidential candidates will have a debate that is sponsored by NBC and Politico that will air on MSNBC. NBC and Politico announced earlier...

    AOL News ^ | October 18, 2010
    (Oct. 18) -- Sarah Palin recently expressed her desire for President Barack Obama to grow a pair of "cojones." Now, one quirky toy company is making sure the outspoken politician has a portable pair of her own. In August, Palin made an appearance on "Fox News Sunday" and said that, compared to Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer, she didn't think Obama had "the cojones" to effectively deal with illegal immigration issues. While her sassy statement may have angered some Americans, it inspired Emil Vicale, a Connecticut toymaker who runs, a company that specializes in novelty political toys and personalized action...
  • Paladino Calls Out Cuomo's "Cojones"

    The gloves have never really been "on" for Tea Party darling Carl Paladino, but now he's really hitting below the belt in the fight to be governor of the Empire State. The New York Republican Gubernatorial nominee sent a letter to his Democratic rival, Andrew Cuomo, accusing him of having "no cojones." Paladino makes the claim while trying to goad Cuomo into an open debate with him. "It's difficult to understand why you, a polished veteran campaigner, scion of a political dynasty and king-designate, would fear a simple businessman from Buffalo, who candidly has never been in a debate in...

Please tell us your position. We all know that they have the right to do it, but should they? And, no, this is not above your pay grade. If those who wish to build this Ground Zero mosque are sincerely interested in encouraging positive "cross-cultural engagement"...

    So this is where we are in America, a year and a half into an administration, Barack Obama's, that was going to make us feel better about everything: The President thinks he can prop himself up by yukking it up on "The View." And Sarah Palin - a hypocrite of the absolute highest rank - goes after him a few days later saying thathe doesn't have the necessary "cojones." Like hers, apparently.

    Four years ago, Democrats swept to Congressional majorities on an anti-corruption platform and a ringing promise to “drain the swamp” of Washington politics. But as the midterm elections near, the promise looks increasingly hollow. Prominent cases of corruption in Democratic ranks reveal a party mired in the very ethical morass it once promised mop up. The most notorious example of Democratic corruption – and the most worrying for party heads and spin-meisters as the campaign season starts – is of course Rep. Charlie Rangel. The embattled Harlem congressman spent last Thursday negotiating 13 charges levied against him by a House...

    Gov. Sarah Palin of Alaska could have chosen courage, boldness, guts or even lion-heartedness as a yardstick to compare the immigration stances of President Obama and Gov. Jan Brewer of Arizona. But the former vice presidential candidate instead went with a much more pointed term on Sunday. “Jan Brewer has the cojones that our president does not have to look out for all Americans, not just Arizonans, but all Americans in this desire of ours to secure our borders and allow legal immigration to help build this country,” Ms. Palin said on Fox News Sunday.

    I'm not sure if we can believe anything in The Washington Post but this one needs mentioning even if they fabricated the story since it has to do with actually making Sarah Palin look good. What's wrong with this picture? Since when would the WaPo want to make a conservative like Palin look good under any circumstances? Nonetheless, Matt DeLong of the Washington Post quoted Sarah Palin as saying Barack Obama lacks 'the cojones' to tackle immigration. Here's the exact quote, copied and pasted from the WaPo story: Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin said Sunday that Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer...

    Norah O'Donnell just mocked the manhood of the Senate Republicans. The MSNBC host was discussing with Tucker Carlson the way that, while making noises about wanting more financial disclosure about donations to Bill Clinton's foundation, Republicans have announced their intention to vote for Hillary's confirmation as Secretary of State nonetheless. O'Donnell wondered out loud whether the Republicans "have kind of lost their cojones." View video here.

    MEXICO CITY, Jan 29 (Reuters) - Mexican President Felipe Calderon's military offensive against ruthless drug cartels has calmed a surge in violence and won him support from many who until now saw him as a bookish, even nerdy technocrat. In the two months since he took office, Calderon has sent thousands of troops into trafficking strongholds where police had feared to go in order to bring down escalating drug violence. He struck a major blow on Jan 19 by extraditing four major traffickers to face trial in U.S. courts. Calderon got a boost from widely published photographs of Gulf cartel...

    Peruvian president Alan Garcia Thursday proposed a national referendum [press release, in Spanish] on introducing capital punishment for convicted terrorists after a legislative proposal to that effect was defeated 49-26 in the Peruvian Congress [official website] on Wednesday. Garcia described the defeat as one contrary to the will of the Peruvian people, and "[it was his] duty to fulfill what [he has] promised... in [his election] campaign." Political observers believe that Congress is unlikely to support the referendum proposal, which itself requires the approval of Congress. Congressional opposition to the proposal cite the American Convention on Human Rights [text], which...

    TIJUANA, Mexico – Mexico is sending more than 3,000 soldiers and federal police officers to fight drug gangs in the violent border city of Tijuana, the latest offensive by President Felipe Calderon who has vowed to crack down on organized crime. The force, backed by 28 boats, 21 planes and nine helicopters, will hunt down suspected traffickers, patrol the coast and man checkpoints in a city that is a popular smuggling route for cocaine, methamphetamine and marijuana entering the United States, Interior Secretary Francisco Ramirez Acuna said at a news conference Tuesday in Mexico City. “We will carry out all...

    ROME, Sept. 14 — As Pope Benedict XVI arrived back home from Germany, Muslim leaders strongly criticized a speech he gave on his trip that used unflattering language about Islam and violence. Some of the strongest words came from Turkey, possibly putting in jeopardy Benedict’s scheduled visit there in November. “I do not think any good will come from the visit to the Muslim world of a person who has such ideas about Islam’s prophet,” Ali Bardakoglu, a cleric who is head of the Turkish government’s directorate of religious affairs, said in a television interview there. “He should first of...

    Conservatives and members of the Senate Republican leadership say that Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-Tenn.) is committed to using a controversial procedural tactic that would rewrite the chamber’s filibuster rule. While Frist said he was actively considering changing the Senate rules several months ago, it now appears that the majority leader is on board with an effort by leading conservative senators to execute the tactic, which would prohibit lawmakers from filibustering judicial nominees. The most logical time to change the rules would be this fall or at the beginning of the new Congress in January. Senate Democratic leadership aides...

    I have been employed as a police officer, a town marshal (yes, Texas still has a few), and a deputy sheriff. All this within seven years. I do not have to worry about speaking out and getting fired anymore – I am pretty much blackballed from the profession. On [Joseph Farah's radio] show, I have heard uninformed people state that the police did nothing about this or that illegal alien problem. I cannot speak for the rest of the world, but here in Texas, you can't touch them. You cannot even ask them for a green card. You cannot even...

If you are really incensed about the 60 ban on political speech (...congress shall make no long banning...) then step up with your intentions to excercise your formerly constitutional right next fall, committing a federal crime in the process. And when you get convicted - and you will - your recourse will be to appeal to the supreme court. While O'Connor and company stare down their noses at you and CNN reports.
