I was recently called uncivil. What was my uncivil behavior? I called a lie a lie in the face of a liar. If that is uncivil behavior, then I suppose I have been classified. However, I believe we have been given a magnificent heritage. Men and women have lived their lives in great sacrifice and given their last breath to secure a nation for our children. This nation they built was to be a beacon of hope to the world: A light of Liberty and a shining example for future generations. The…Continue
The UN Arms Trade Treaty should alarm any liberty-loving citizen. Every UN treaty requires the participating country to turn over its sovereignty regarding that particular issue. An agreement with the UN removes the autonomy of the nation and the independence of the people to make their own laws free of UN control and dictate. …Continue

The rebuke by liberals was easy to predict.
It’s the guns they tell us. It’s the bullets.
We need stricter gun laws. We need…Continue

It’s a problem born of far too many years and decades of complacency.
It’s exactly what liberals have been laying the groundwork for throughout those years and…Continue

Yesterday, in the House, yet another vote to repeal Obamacare was held. It was the 33rd time such a vote was taken in the House since the passage of the bill nobody could know what was in until they passed it.
33 times in the house.
How many times has this been debated in the Senate?
That’s because Harry Reid, just as…Continue

Well…He tried, didn’t he?
The EMPEROR tried and tried and TRIED to convince us all that Obamacare was NOT a tax.
He said it and said it.
The EMPEROR told us it wasn’t a tax and he told us and TOLD us that under Obamacare…NOBODY would be taxed a SINGLE DIME.
The EMPEROR started telling us that the day he started the process and he KEPT telling us that it was not a tax right up to the very day his…Continue

One can easily suspect 3 things.
1) Nobody who ascribes to the Tea Party values ever thought they were dead.
2) Liberals knew the Tea Party wasn’t dead but they were hoping beyond hope against another shellacking in November.
3) The Republican…Continue

Now the Senate Majority Leader has appointed his 3 members of the super-committee which was created as a result of the debt deal. The SC is made up of a total of 12 members and they must find at least $1.2 T in cuts to spending, reforming entitlement programs or tax increases. They have until Thanksgiving to do so. If they fail, an across-the-board cut occurs within our Federal Government. However, dozens of programs are exempted from the cutting knife. The 3…Continue
GradeGov membership as of July 31 DEM/INDEP=44% GOP=54%
Happy Sunday! The White House, Sen. McConnell and the Speaker of House are very close to a deal that will start in the Senate as early as mid-afternoon today if in fact the Speaker can get an OK from his side of the Capitol. The basics are:
-$2.8 T increase in the debt thru 2013
--Cuts adding up to $1 T and hoping for an add'l $1.8T found by the super-committee
--No tax increases…Continue
As the hours pass and the Asian markets begin to open by early Sunday evening, the Speaker of the House has taken the reigns and is asking for a debt deal at least in outline form by 4pm today. The House GOP will be asked to attend a 4:30 call-in conference call and the Speaker hopes to hold a presser by early Sunday evening, presumably to announce a deal. This is an effort to…Continue
The House comes off a one week recess period last week to resume the Department of Defense appropriations bill when they reconvene on Wednesday, July 6. The House may also pass the Energy and Water appropriations bill before the week ends for members of the House. Once the House passes the two appropriations bills that will bring the number to five completed appropriations bills. This means the House is almost half way through passing all twelve appropriations bills. Once all twelve…Continue
The Senate will begin consideration of the Federal Aviation admin. Reauthorization bill later today. This agency has been working off of multiple extensions for the last couple of years. Congress has been unable to fully reauthorize this agency because of issues dealing with pilot's flight time and funding levels. The Senate Majority Leader has indicated that he will allow this bill to be debated in an open fashion which means he will allow amendments to be offered…Continue

“Health Care repeal passes the House…… Senate action unlikely.” These are the type of headlines and news crawls that have been flying around DC ever since the vote (link: http://clerk.house.gov/evs/2011/roll014.xml) of 245 to 189 was announced in the House of Representatives last Wednesday evening. As a matter of fact, during the C-SPAN showing of the House vote, the crawl that ran at the bottom of the TV screen was a statement by…Continue

The following article was published in Red State just thought it might be of interest.Progressives, liberals and left of center politicians have teamed up to radically curtail the rights of Republican Senators in the next Congress. They have a plan to “kill the filibuster,” so that they can establish a top down system of control next year in the Senate. This plan to kill the filibuster will stifle dissent and relegate Republican Senators to observer status in the newly reformed Senate.… Continue

I have seen some upcoming candidates for 2010 but few have really caught my attention. That being said let me preface this by saying I am biased in this. So I do not want there to be any misunderstanding here. I first met Vincent oddly enough through email on Facebook because of his Gear Up Foundation. The work he did as a 9/11 first responder holds a…Continue
