    I’m thinking that Republicans really don’t want Obama defeated badly enough. We are very close to pulling defeat from the jaws of victory. Even we Conservatives seem hell-bent on destroying, or helping the media destroy, everyone of our candidates one at a time by backbiting and devouring each other over “one-issue” disagreements. Some Johnny-one-notes have “Abortion” as their issue. For many, it’s “non-Electability” or a candidate is “not a good Debater” or confuses “Elvis’ birthday” with the anniversary of his death. And for a true Conservative, Rick Santorum, he will be undone because, bless his heart, he has the “Charisma”...

    The good news for President Obama is his popular support among blacks is holding steady at 91%.The bad news is no other group of potential voters likes him that much.In fact, 29 days before his first midterm elections, the Democrat's approval ratings remain mired below 50%.A new Gallup Poll this morning finds his approval rating for September was 45%, almost the same as August's 44%.

    Experts: No End To Volcano Ash In SightApril 17, 2010 (CNN) -- Weather experts predicted Friday that a volcanic ash causing chaos to air traffic across Europe would affect the region well into the weekend and possibly beyond as the dust cloud continued to spread. Scientists said it was too soon to predict when the Eyjafjallajökull volcano in Iceland would cease spewing ash, raising the prospect of thousands more grounded flights in coming days. Prevailing westerly winds are expected to fan the massive plume of dust from an erupting volcano in Iceland further east and north, according to predictions from...

    Amie Parnes reports from Lebanon, VA: Obama poked fun of McCain and Palin's new "change" mantra. "You can put lipstick on a pig," he said as the crowd cheered. "It's still a pig." "You can wrap an old fish in a piece of paper called change. It's still gonna stink." "We've had enough of the same old thing." The crowd apparently took the "lipstick" line as a reference to Palin, who described the difference between a hockey mom and a pit bull in a single word: "lipstick."

    This post needs to be made regarding Super Tuesday. My observations include the fact the "underground" Trust Huckabee operation did its job well dividing conservative votes and enabling McCain to win Missouri. This group not officially associated with Huckabee is paving the way for McCain. It looks National Right To Life used its state affiliates endorsements of Huckabee to assist in the Establishment plan to divide conservatives and help McCain win. Romney can still fight back but he'll have to get into the Saturday events in Washington and Kansas where I think he can do well. And he'll have to...

The essence of this false argument is the belief that a communist society would consist of an all-powerful central government that would tell everybody what to do--and would therefore undermine the creative initiative of individuals and the search for happiness. • This argument is based on two false assumptions: (1) It assumes that a communist society will look like the former Soviet Union, or the current China, North Korea, etc (ie: corrupt police states with a feudal-style ruling class) (2) It assumes that people will only work in...

Could it be that the illegal CBS documents were in the works as a result of this meeting? A little investigative reporting might help solve this mystery. The report was so sketchy that the name of the restuarant is lost on me, but it was said to be Clinton's favorite Little Rock establishment. Please someone, investigate. This could be important news.

Farmers in northern Sweden are milking moose and making cheese, which they sell for a lot of dough — nearly $500 a pound. The buyers include upscale hotels and restaurants in Sweden.

They claim it is the only moose dairy farm in Europe. The Johanssons currently have 14 moose in the fields but only three — "Gullan," "Haelga" and "Juna" —...
