Sen. John McCain announced Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin as his Vice President. Together they make a very formidable team. While I am a Mitt Romney guy through and through, her politics speak for themselves. I do believe McCain has listened to his base about making his VP a fighter for conservative values. She is this and more. I was impressed to hear so much good about her after CNN and MSNBC set their sights and are propagating lies and falsehoods already. Paul at Adams&Jefferson listed the following great bullet points: She is a young, energetic mother of 5 She is solidly pro-life. Her youngest son, born this last April, has Downs Syndrome. This is a perfect counterpoint to the pro-death views of the Democratic party - who would have aborted this beautiful child. She has made a name for herself fighting the corruption that Alaska has become infamous for. She is the mother of a US Soldier. In the War on Terror both her and Sen. McCain have put their money where their mouth is.…

Politically Incorrect

I do not really know how to start this post. I do know that I cannot stand the way we as an American society have become so shackled by all the politically correct agenda circulating through every school, workplace and courtroom.

Was it politically correct for the Committee assigned to draft the Declaration of Independence to do so? Thomas Jefferson, the main writer of said declaration stated, "...that all men are created equal......." This was not Politically Correct in his day. First of All the world (especially England) Believed in Kings and Royalty. Your station in life depended on your birthright. Here were these upstart 'Americans' who were denouncing Kings and claiming that all men had the same rights. And that these rights were given by God, and not Kings or other mortal men.

Now today we are more restricted than ever before. You cannot mention God at school without causing riots. You cannot state that the founders of this country were God-fearing religious fol…

Is abortion an issue?

Just a short post today. In a recent debate, if you could call it that, Sen. Obama was asked about his views on abortion. Rather than really answer the question he said it was beyond his "pay grade" to deal with. Excuse Me?

Well, lets look at his record on the issue. While a Senator in Illinois, there was a bill that was starting to "allow" babies who were birthed alive to be cared for by nurses and doctors. Sounds crazy, I know. A nurse at an abortion clinic was fed up. She was forced to watch viable birthed babies left to die after a failed abortion attempt. I still cannot get my brain around this idea.

This nurse would pick up the babies and hold them till they dies. It broke her heart. She was not allowed to do anything for these babies.

Anyway, the legislation went forward and Mr. Obama would not vote for it. He then wanted to create some avenue for others to defeat it in committee and when voting decided to vote, 'present' instead of yes or no. Just like…


Finally, we are seeing some life in the republican party. The conservatives are starting to flex what muscle they have. I am not sure what has taken so long for them to stand up to Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid but it is about time.

Congress just voted to give themselves a five week vacation. YES! five weeks. And this while we are in the midst of a congress induced energy crisis. That is what this is. We are not demanding more oil that what there is available. But our congress has limited us on how much can be taken to market. If we got into the way back machine and made sure that no restrictions were ever made on oil exploration, refinery expansion and production, and congress kept their hands out it by not adding such high taxes to the cost of gas, we would be talking about something else entirely. Heck we might even be talking about the Olympics. They are going on in China right now in case you were unaware.

The republicans are not going on vacation. Instead they are showing up every d…

Shrieker of the House Nazi Pelosi

Yeah, forget political correctness. I have heard these nick names for Nancy Pelosi and think they fit her to a tee. The Senate and House both decided to take a 5 week vacation. Even though there is a severe energy crisis that should be addressed. Its not like we were asking them to part the red sea. All we wanted was for them to lift the restrictions on drilling for oil on US soil and off our own coasts.

America IS researching alternative and renewable energy. Until this is profitable and can come to market, WE NEED OIL! It is not that hard to figure out. Anyway, The shrieker figures that there is enough support for a resolution lifting the bans, and she has made it her goal to block ANY bill from coming to a vote for fear of an amendment being added that would effectively force a vote on this issue. And she would lose that vote. The pressure is on in all senate districts. And not every democrat is as loyal to the liberal socialist agenda when it comes to home town pressure.

Tire Pressure

Just had to blog this. Barrack Obama was recently asked about all of the pressure to drill more oil domestically. His response was that , we could be doing things now to conserve and limit our oil consumption. He then suggested that most people in the USA were running with overinflated tires. Then and this is the kicker, he says that we don't need more drilling or more oil while we are developing renewable energy, no! All we need to do is make sure all of the country's cars deflate their tires. Yes, he really said this. And then went on to say that if we did that, we would solve the demand for oil because we would save so much.

Wow! I am actually starting to get a good feeling about November. Even without the mainstream media covering all of his missteps and blunders, this is getting out to the average American. You even get some weird looks from those who really are pulling for the guy.

I think the liberals wanted him so bad they never vetted him. And now they have w…
