  • Rush Limbaugh Live Thread Wed April 26th, 2006

    Let's talk about gas prices. ^ Posted on 04/26/2006 7:28:38 AM PDT by connell There is a lot of complaining, whining, lying, misleading, and really bad analysis going on right now vis-a-vis high gas prices. The latest I saw (early this morning) was an analysis that shows a lack of parity between the percentage increase in the price of a barrel of oil and the price of a gallon of gasoline at the pump. Look, I am not an economist or an expert on these matters. But rather than just moaning about the price of gas and then...
  • Will FR embrace socialism to make way for Rudy Giuliani as a Republican presidential candidate?

    We've got some real challenges facing us. FR was established to fight against government corruption, overstepping, and abuse and to fight for a return to the limited constitutional government as envisioned and set forth by our founding fathers in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution and other founding documents. One of the biggest cases of government corruption, overstepping and abuse that I know of is its disgraceful headlong slide into a socialist hell. Our founders never intended for abortion to be the law of the land. And they never intended the Supreme Court to be a legislative body. They...
  • Attorneygate and the World Trade Center Bombing

    I am referring, of course, to the real Attorneygate scandal -- the one that occurred in 1993 -- and to the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center. Many readers -- especially younger ones -- may be perplexed. Some may be unaware that the Attorneygate scandal and the World Trade Center bombing even had 1993 predecessors. But they did. On February 26, 1993, Middle Eastern terrorists attacked the World Trade Center with a truck bomb. One month later, on March 24, 1993, Attorney General Janet Reno demanded the resignations of all 93 sitting U.S. Attorneys. Could these two facts be...
  • (Vanity) Democrat Instructional Video- How to Create 'Quick Political Books'

    10/16/2006 2:27:25 PM PDT · by mnehring · 13 replies · 611+ views
    With all of the threads on books and hit pieces attempting to 'split' the conservative base, such as David Kuo's new book claiming that President Bush makes fun of Christians, I felt it was important to put this into the context of the Democrat's political strategy. This video is from New Politics, a DNC marketing group. This outlines how to quickly publish progressive political books (see, right before the election) and how to use viral market strategy to get the word out. Specifically, focus on the areas regarding marketing and how these books can be used to influence the...
  • In case you were wondering ...[TEXAS TAX]

    Special to the Star-Telegram ^ | May. 22, 2006 | ELLIOTT NAISHTAT
    Notably absent from the Republican leadership's self-congratulatory comments regarding the recently completed special session on public school finance were any references to the fact that, because of the leadership's inaction, more than 1.3 million senior citizens and people with disabilities in Texas will receive little or no property tax relief. Given that the governor, lieutenant governor and House speaker were all in positions to intervene on behalf of these vulnerable populations (living for the most part on fixed incomes), I question why the interests of these particular Texans were left so far behind. House Bill 1, the property tax reduction...

    OK ... working off the premise that I never have an original thought ... let me share something that occurred to me last night whilst I was listening to a few minutes of the Michael Savage show. It is truly perplexing to try to figure out just why our government won't respond to the Mexican invasion. Eight out of ten Americans want the border closed ... yet the politicians who are supposed to be listening to us do absolutely nothing. Twenty-five million illegals have crossed the border from Mexico into the United States since 1990, and the only actions our...
  • The future of the Republican Party - Poll Question.

    05/10/2006 10:29:57 AM PDT · by cryptical · 143 replies · 1,731+ views
    I noticed the latest poll question, which got me to thinking... A time for choosing: It appears that a significant number of our members are so disgusted with the GOP's failure to secure our borders against illegal aliens that they are willing to risk all by voting them out of office, even if it means Pelosi, Reid, Hillary, et al, are allowed to take charge. Is this the best course of action or should we be working harder than ever to hold the line and actually try to make a difference by getting more constitutionally-minded conservatives elected? Are you willing...

    Dallas Business Journal ^ | 5/5/05 | May 5, 2006
    Alphonso Jackson says deal was scuttled after contractor admits not liking Bush. Once the color barrier has been broken, minority contractors seeking government work may need to overcome the Bush barrier. That's the message U.S. Housing and Urban Development Secretary Alphonso Jackson seemed to send during an April 28 talk in Dallas. Jackson, a former president and CEO of the Dallas Housing Authority, was among the featured speakers at a forum sponsored by the Real Estate Executive Council, a national minority real estate consortium. After discussing the huge strides the agency has made in doing business with minority-owned companies, Jackson...
  • Sen. Allen's Journey Of Racial Conciliation (apologizing for slavery)

    On a weekend pilgrimage to this town that was once the center of massive resistance to desegregation, Sen. George Allen (R-Va.) said he believes a congressional resolution expressing remorse for slavery would be a "powerful, worthy" idea. Allen, who is running for reelection while considering a 2008 presidential bid, was in Farmville over the weekend as part of a racial reconciliation trip organized by the bipartisan Faith and Politics Institute. Also participating in the pilgrimage was Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.), a leader in the civil rights movement. Allen pledged to work with Lewis to build support among colleagues and the...

    It appears Rush is starting to validate what may already may be happening in the country that three political parties. Republican Democrat Conservative Maybe the time has come for a new political party. I would interested to what others think. Where I am at in Illinois, it appears that the party focus is on having a liberal agenda. When Rush Limbaugh mention at the end of the first hour Republican, Democrat, and Conservative. I could not be more in agreement.
