  • Lets get something straight, Sarah Palin did NOT "quit"

    06/08/2010 5:34:13 PM PDT · by se_ohio_young_conservative · 579 replies · 815+ views
    She was FORCED out for financial reasons. If anyone tells you she quit let them know otherwise. Her legal fee had accumulated higher than 500K. Her personal income was JUST OVER 100K a year. Financially her family was going under quickly. And they were filing another ethics complaint everytime she left the state. She was afraid to give interviews in the governors office. She was afraid to allow anyone other than staff in the Governors office after the TaserGate ordeal. They were destroying her. So, what were her options ? She tried to set up a legal defense fund. At...

    My "Dear George" Letter Sorry, George, but you lost me at Harriet. When a reporter asked you Oct. 4 if Harriet Miers was the most qualified possible candidate for the U.S. Supreme Court and you answered, "Yes þ I picked the best person I could find" ‹ and you did it with a straight face ‹ that was it. I'm done. Check, please! I'm outta here. I am no longer a George W. Bush supporter. As a conservative, I have been bitch-slapped by this man for the last time. Those suffering from "Battered Conservative's Syndrome" will no doubt make excuses...
  • Oh Jeez, can some of you just shut up? - Pukin on FReeper- negativity

    09/29/2005 8:06:13 AM PDT · by Pukin Dog · 279 replies · 4,767+ views
    Can’t a guy take a vacation without the nay-sayin ninnies of negativity taking over this place? As the self-appointed optimist of this forum, I must say that I am more than a little P-Od over what I have been reading coming from the scared keyboards of some of you folks. You act as if someone stole your little Republican cookies and ate them in front of you. Look, I know it’s not the best of times for Conservatives if you are concerned about spending or the protection of the borders. However, it escapes me why it seems impossible for some...
  • Why ABC's "Commander-in-Chief" is a Condi Rice clone

    Why ABC's "Commander-in-Chief" is a Condi Rice clone   by Mia T, 9.28.05         ommander-in-Chief" Mackenzie Allen is a carefully crafted Condi-Rice clone. She is not hillary clinton. Indeed, she is specifically antihillary. This can mean only one thing: hillary clinton and her agitprop machine have determined that missus clinton, the construct, is unelectable. Because ABC is part of the permanent clinton agitprop, because the "Commander-in Chief" head writer is a veteran of clinton campaigns and hillary's press office, because the show has been perfectly positioned to desensitize the electorate to the notion of a woman...

    Well I was going to put this into some other thread but things have been moving so fast that it is going to be lost and I have been encouraged to give it one of its own. So since this is the first time I've posted like this, I hope I do it all right. I was feeling really frustrated by all the conflicting accounts of how many people were at the anti-war/anti-everything related or not related to Bush protest, that I decided to try to get a closer number based on the picture that came from Reuters of the...
  • CNN's Jack Cafferty Is Nothing But DU On Cable

    Alright. It's not necessary to do the obligatory "what are you watching CNN for anyway?" It's part of my job description. OK. I just need to vent amongst friends. This guy is quickly rising to the top of smarmy Libs. He is a poor Andy Rooney wannabe who accompanies Wolf Blitzer afternoons at CNN. His job description is to add insight and read e-mails answering questions he throws out. Of course, he picks his favorites to read. Everything designed to slime Bush. Not even a hint of objectivity. I just saw him ask, "what will be different with response to...
  • VANITY - Rebuild New Orleans as the City of Tomorrow!

    09/21/2005 6:11:09 AM PDT · by Puddleglum · 66 replies · 976+ views
    Heck, if the government really is going to spend $200 billion to rebuild New Orleans, they might as well rebuild it as the city of tomorrrow complete with kelp farms, electricity generated by tides, public transportation light as a cloud and efficient and almost noiseless, parks that are nice and safe and clean. It could be a proof-of-concept city for all those innovations you see in the middle of "Popular Science" that are always "just around the corner." I draw the line at dog-walking robots and the bubble dome (for now), but you get my drift, I suppose. Well, I...
  • (VANITY) Americans with Disabilities Act - How Equal and What Cost?

    ADA is good in theory and in theoretical principle. But, is complicated, costly, and impactical on many dimensions. How far should its reach be? How much cost can it be assigned (from society and government)? How much economic impact from this act is tolerable? What are the "States Rights" compromises that can be made in support of the ADA? It will be good to argue these issues in today's context, and especially in the context of SCOTUS nominations.

    Did anyone see the following Red Cross Television ad ? I saw what I think has to be the most disgusting tv ad in Red Cross history. The audio is from memory and went something like this. I don't look like you. I don't watch the same television programs. I don't laugh at the same jokes. I don't eat the same food. But I will save your life. The video showed mostly white middle class people going about their lives, washing their car, walking their dog, etc. And at the end, the video displayed the Red Cross emblem along with...
