Closing Down Comments?

Published by under All General Discussions

OK folks, the comments section of this blog is being underused by serious commenters and fouled by people who whine about insults as they fling them left and right. Sadly, the comments section is losing it purpose for me – the owner of this little old site. So I put it to a vote. Keep […]

Humanity Becoming Immune To Alarmists

The world is getting fed up with hyperventilating on all sides of the political spectrum. An interesting case in point is people are not buying the man-made global warming ‘end of the world” theories: ALMOST three quarters of people believe global warming is a ‘natural occurrence’ and not a result of carbon emissions, a survey […]

GOP Meltdown

I was not going to do this again, go into the fevered swamps of the Amnesty Hypochondriacs and expose some of the anger that is destroying the GOP. But of course it is necessary to expose what too many who oppose the immigration bill believe about America and Americans on this subject: Post the list […]

Live Blogging The Immigration Vote – It Passes!

Published by under All General Discussions

Updates Below (roll call) Right now the Senate is voting on a bill covering some kind of legislation on unions. Following this vote will be the vote on Immigration. America is at a cross roads, as is the GOP. The far right has put a lot of emotion and anger into this issue. It has […]

House GOP: We Don’t Know What It Is, But We Oppose It

Let’s not assume sanity will reign over the GOP anytime soon when it comes to immigration. The amnesty hypochondriac wing of the GOP is still pumped up on panic, as we can tell from this telling House GOP statement: House Republicans disapprove of the Senate immigration bill that is expected to go back to the […]

Provisional Legal Status Spooks Hypochondriacs

As we are set to see if this country will finally take actions (imperfect and incomplete as all actions are when legislated) I find the shrillnes from the hypochondriacs this day laughable. A series of hypochondriac myths are falling to reality and it is just sometimes pathetically funny to watch. We had the fence BS […]

Border Fence Still On Track

Another amnesty hypochondria myth is being debunked: If the effort to catch people illegally crossing the border here in the southern Arizona desert is a cat-and-mouse struggle, the Homeland Security Department says it has a smarter cat. It comes in the form of nine nearly 100-foot-tall towers with radar, high-definition cameras and other equipment rising […]

Immigration Issue Forces One Republican Out

I think we will see way too much of this as a result of the harshness that has surrounded the immigration bill: State Rep. Paul Froehlich, a Schaumburg Republican, said he’s changing political parties and becoming a Democrat. “After being in the minority for five years, with no prospects of that changing, I think I […]

Immigration Bill Cloture Vote Tally

Apparently the Immigration Bill is within striking distance of passing the Cloture vote of 60. One estimate has the opposition now at 32 votes (with enough undecideds to make this interesting). The panicky amnesty hypochondriacs are going to be in full froth until the vote at 11:30 or so this morning. They can’t wait to […]

Success In Iraq Is Possible, With Patience – But Iran Is The Prime Obstacle

Iraq has turned a corner. a-Qaeda is being destroyed and, even worse, humiliated on the battlefield as they run from the battles and leave their troops to die. In comparison, the Iraqi forces are standing tall: he Iraqi soldiers and units working with the Multinational Division North are “holding firm,” the director of operations for […]
