  • Common Sense Immigration Reform

    There is no question that America has a range of difficult problems facing her; the economy, unemployment, Social Security, Medicare, and healthcare are pushing our great country to the brink. However, there is an underlying problem which is a contributing factor to all of these problems – illegal immigration. The U.S. Government estimates that there are between 8 to 12 million illegal immigrants currently residing within our borders but independent studies have shown that number is significantly higher. The Californians for Population Study (CAPS) released a report by four leading immigration experts who believe that there is somewhere between 20...

    ConocoPhillips announced, yesterday, that it is joining Sunoco in ending oil refining in the Philadelphia region if it cannot find a buyer for its refinery in Trainer. Joining the Obama bread-lines -- or SNAP lines rather -- will be 400 workers, Also hundreds of hazardous-waste impregnated acres useless for anything but oil refining will be idled and the United States will become further dependent on Hugo Chavez for gasoline. And of course a large part of the tax base of tiny Trainer and the Chichester School District, which includes Marcus Hook which is the site of one of the Sunoco...

    Two things you guys. First, this video is very cute. Second, watching these cattle follow the remote-control car reminds me of how the Left operates. Except the cattle smell better and have a superior intellect.
  • Romney Front-Runner By Default While Cain Wins FL Straw Poll (Palin's opening)

    After the FoxNews/Google debate, it had begun to crystallize in the view of many Republicans is that Rick Perry isn’t the candidate many had hoped. Capturing the straw poll in Florida on Saturday, Herman Cain reached new heights as Perry’s slide down hill has accelerated. Bachmann has peaked and begun to taper off, while Gingrich, Paul, Santorum and Huntsman continue to struggle in the middle-to-low single digits. This leaves Mitt Romney out front, not because he’s such a great candidate, but because to date, his chief opponents have grossly underperformed. This begs the question most conservatives want most to ask:...

    After his win today in Florida's Presidency 5 straw poll, former Godfather Pizza CEO Herman Cain declared, "This is a sign of our growing momentum and my candidacy that cannot be ignored." With all due respect to Mr. Cain, it is more likely a sign that none of the candidates have been able to gain any lasting momentum and there is still no clear frontrunner whose message, skills and record are good enough for primary voters.

    Dennis Gannon, the former president of the Chicago Federation of Labor who works for a hedge fund, is getting paid a $158,000 pension by the City of Chicago for a day's work in 1994. The city hired him for a sanitation job then granted him leave to do his union duties.

    But you, man of God, flee from all this, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith LOVE, endurance and gentleness. 1 Tim 6:11 We are now seeing a huge void starting to develop in the presidential race. We are obviously in need of an articulate Conservative after the display we saw on Thursday during the debates. As much as Perry makes an attractive candidate from a resume standpoint, the last thing the Republicans need is another tongue tied Texan. His performance from a verbal standpoint was a disaster as it was a debate nobody won but Rick Perry lost. There is now...

    President Barack Obama hit another American city today claiming to care about the nation's unemployment crisis but showing his real concern is for his own political future. His chosen backdrop of the Brent Spence Bridge which links Ohio and Kentucky was the perfect setting for an attack against two of his political opponents House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Kentucky). But his usual mixture of sarcasm and lies were no match for the truth Senator McConnell ably delivered from the Senate floor.

    Fast Pitch ^ | Sept. 8, 2011 | Bruce Deitrick Price
    This is a recurring annoyance for me. The RNC seems to have no idea that education is hugely important to most Americans, and should be a major campaign issue. Frankly, big visions are NOT required. Details need NOT be mentioned. Just say that public schools are a mess, liberal ideas made them that way, and Republicans can turn things around. All true.Problem is, we need people at the top with practical common sense and a desire to win. These people need to be aggressive. The weird wizards now in charge of public education will not notice anything less than a...

    Like Queequeg in the 1851 novel Moby Dick, by Herman Melville, President Obama began building his own coffin with his “American Jobs Bill” speech last night. None of his proposals will spur growth in the private sector and I believe he knows it and simply doesn’t care. As long as the economy continues to tank and America continues to lose influence in the world, he’ll be happy to begin his campaign now and blame Republicans in every speech for not getting on board, even though I’m sure they will support many of his proposals like 1) the extension of unemployment...
  • American Jobs Act is a political farce

    As expected, President Obama’s jobs speech was full of political pabulum and worn out Democrat talking points straight out of the Bolshevik takeover of Russia. I predicted earlier this week, the president’s plan would be little more than a speech. He has no plan to send congress so that they can “pass it now” as the president repeated seventeen times during his speech. Mr. President, if passing a bill, which doesn’t exist, is so important – why did you wait almost three years to take action? Furthermore, why is there no bill for Congress to take action on? President Obama...

    It has taken me a couple days to fully compose my thoughts on Wednesday's GOP debate on MSNBC. Like most, I was looking forward to seeing Rick Perry perform on stage for the first time. I like Rick Perry and would gladly support him, but he made two obvious blunders as far as I can see. One can be fixed, the other is his to own. I was and am still hoping that Governor Perry can improve himself as I am no great fan of Mitt Romney. While I prefer Rick Perry on the substance of the issues he failed...

    Examples Of Make-Do Work Provided To Keep The Masses Busy During The Greatest Depression. Boondoggles, above, were devices used to fasten scarves, and the CCC Civilian Conservation workers were paid $16.00 per day in today's money. I'm not thinking Obama will be able spur the economy with these sort of jobs, much less find modern Americans who would pass the time making boondoggles or be employed in real shovel ready jobs like the CCC did years ago. Herbert Hoover may have prepared the way for the Greatest Depression, but FDR exasperated the problem. Although President Bush expanded government projects...

    A new poll released today shows Republican Bob Turner with a 4 point lead over Democrat David Weprin in their race to replace disgraced Congressman Anthony Weiner (D-New York). In addition to the surprising lead in a district in which Democrats out number Republicans by a margin of 3 to 1, the poll also found that Mr. Turner wins the favorability contest with 37% of respondents viewing him favorably compared to just 29.8% for Mr. Weprin. With just one week before the special election to fill a seat that was recently considered a sure hold for the Democrats, there's more...

    Pennsylvania's Republican establishment has a Tea Party problem. As indicated in an earlier post, establishment fav Steve Welch is not warming the hearts of those whose votes he needs. Now, Paula Stiles of the Chester County Patriots is sounding the call for the common folk to attend the General Republican Meeting of the State Committee, which is 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., Sept. 17, at Harrisburg Hilton, 1 N. 2nd St., Harrisburg. "We are asking constituents from every county in Pennsylvania to attend. . . and personally experience the disdain that PA GOP leadership has for their fellow Republicans," she...

    In Governor Palin’s speech in Iowa on Saturday, she spoke about crony capitalism and about the importance of vetting a candidate based on his or her record: “So, please, you must vet a candidate’s record. You must know their ability to successfully reform and actually fix problems that they’re going to claim they inherited. Real reform never sits well with the entrenched special interests, and that’s why the true voices of reform are so quickly demonized.” These words really stuck out to me. Since Governor Perry entered the presidential race a couple weeks ago, I have spoken with many conservatives...

    On September 3rd, Sarah Palin will be at a Tea Party rally in Iowa. There is plenty of speculation that she will announce her candidacy on that day. A Tea Party ad featuring Sarah Palin has been hitting the airwaves over the past week. After the rally in Iowa, reports have confirmed that Sarah Palin will fly to New Hampshire for another Tea Party rally. Last year, I told all of my friends and everyone I know that Sarah Palin will run for President in 2012. Now, I really believe it is going to happen. As Karl Rove stated on...

    If there was any question that next month's special election in New York's 9th congressional district will be a referendum on President Barack Obama's policies, yesterday's New York Times endorsement removes all doubt. Not surprisingly, the left-leaning paper's editorial board has chosen to support Democrat David Weprin in the September 13 contest to replace disgraced Congressman Anthony Weiner. But the reasons given for that support have little to do with the candidate's qualifications and everything to do with the Obama agenda.

    Don't Forget Your Godly Ancestry! James 1:17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning. Last week, a rare archaeological discovery was made in Northern Israel. Archaeologists discovered a ½ meter statue of Hercules which they say was dated to the second century. In Greek mythology, Hercules was the son of the Greek god Zeus, and the mortal mother Alcmene – the wisest and most beautiful of all mortal women. Hercules was said to surpass all mortal men in strength,...
