The ISIS/ISIL nuts are not above trading a hostage for American dollars to later use against us. They made a ransom demand to the United States. CNN’s Crossfire tweeted out the response from the spokesman for President Obama’s National Security Council. “[The U.S.] does not grant concessions to hostage takers…. Doing so would only put more Americans at risk of being taken captive,” said the | Read More »
There is a lot of anger in Ferguson, Missouri, and much of it understandable. But there is also a lot of spectacle and drama. “Ferguson” has become a rallying cry for hucksters, a ratings point for the media, and a point of argument for friends on soc…
“On the last day there will be a narrow gate. That makes me pessimistic about my future in politics and the future voices on the right” Were I to recreate this site, I think it would have no comments section. Disqus is just horrible. I do not recommend it to anyone. And it just helps further what I see on so much social media these | Read More »

Credit where it is due: for once “No Drama Obama” showed some real anger and emotion. In addressing the nation about James Foley, President Obama had a level of righteousness in his voice he does not often have. While I think it unseemly that he was literally within ten minutes of his speech on a golf course, I appreciate the righteousness in his statement. But | Read More »
I am a thirty-nine year old white male in suburbia. When I hear of an altercation between an eighteen year old black male and a police officer, my natural inclination is to take the side of the police. For that matter, if I hear it is an eighteen year old white kid, Asian kid, Hispanic kid, or pretty much anyone else, my inclination is to | Read More »

Rho Chalmers, who disclosed to the Houston Chronicle yesterday that she was a member of the grand jury that indicted Texas Gov. Rick Perry, was an active delegate to the Texas Democratic Party convention | Read More »

Holy crap this is the funniest thing I’ve read today. HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA. Oh my gosh. I don’t want to refer to a reporter as a fluffer (probably don’t want to google that one), but good grief he had to be wearing knee pads to write this. Here. Here is how the whole thing opens.

My most frustrating moments on CNN were during the course of 2009 and early 2010 special elections. In several cases they went to the Democrats. The liberal on with me would make a passionate case that this was a harbinger of future Democratic successes in 2010 and I would be forced to point out that special elections are rarely harbingers of anything. That is true. | Read More »
The drunk in charge of the Travis County District Attorney’s Office wants to settle a political grudge with a criminal indictment. It is sad that this has gone so far. It is sad that Rick Perry had to suffer the indignity of a mug shot as Democrats try to fundraise off it. But I’ll take Perry’s mugshot over Rosemary Lehmberg’s any day of the week. | Read More »
