Back in the 1990's my husband Bruce worked for Allied-Signal in Olathe. He was part of engineering support, working as a graphic artist, and, as an artist, he was -- and remains -- a complete Mac Addict. In fact, the entire art department was composed of Mac Addicts. "PC" was next to an obscenity, and Bill Gates was close to the Devil incarnate.
So it was no surprise that this joke was circulated and posted around the department:
Bill Gates goes…
The following bulletin was sent from Combat Veterans for Congress
The rush to approve the repeal of DADT by Adm Mullins, and his
aggressiveness to have it happen before he was relieved as Chairman of
the Joint Chiefs of Staff, in opposition Service Chiefs (excluding the
CNO), and military personnel in combat who completed the Pentagon survey
that was suppressed, has resulted in serious problems for…

From The Daily Caller:
Experts begin to doubt Obama’s re-electability
"Gallup numbers show the president’s approval at 41 percent, and show him trailing an unnamed “generic Republican” by eight percentage points, National Journal’s Charlie Cook wrote on Oct. 28. “These numbers certainly don’t show Obama’s reelection fortunes as hopeless, but they paint a very challenging…Continue

Although this video is somewhat long (24 minutes) it deals with a topic that we should all be concerned about.
It is a discussion by subject matter experts on the topic of hijacking an election through voting
It shares the biggest fear …. Election commissioners who think it can’t happen to them.
Conservatives need to understand this threat and be forearmed. Honest voting is a requirement for a democracy.…Continue

It's foolish for our Republican politicians to try to compete with Obama concerning the lie of job creation via government edict. Legislative bills and the creation of jobs via government fiat will not work (I thought our side was trying to defeat Obama, not join him). Only private businesses that make products or offer services in a competing environment, seeking a profit, can create jobs. Any employment the government can create is just overhead…Continue

New. This Fall. On CBS.
Just kidding. But that is a question John Hinderaker at PowerLine blog asked after reviewing a survey by New York magazine which asked 50 “occupiers” (I call 'em squatters) a series of questions about public issues.
His conclusion? "To be blunt, people this dumb should be ashamed to show their faces in public, let alone try to tell the…
Rather than simply admit that they’re communists…. today’s liberal democrats hide behind mountains of nuanced bull**** --- sprinkled with 'new-age liberal definitions' that allow words to mean the exact opposite…
To these people,…Continue

Several days ago I urged all of you to log on to as many "Occupy" Facebook pages as you could to make educational comments about their movement. Apparently we are having some success. We have been telling them that they are being used by MoveOn.org and the SEIU. Apparently we are having success. Until today they have been blowing us off but today one of the movement's leaders on the "Occupy Kansas City" Facebook page posted this comment:…

Now that the Iranian assassination plot has been exposed the Obama administration has promised to "hold Iran accountable" for the war-like action which intended to kill a Saudi Arabian diplomat on U.S. soil. However, because the Obama Department of Justice itself has in effect committed an act of war against Mexico with its Fast and Furious fiasco in which many Mexicans and one American have been killed, our child president has his hands tied as to what method…Continue

As many of you are aware the Middle East has become a bloody killing field since the "Arab Spring". In Egypt the Christian Copts are under attack by the Egyptian Muslims and the Egyptian military, there are no Christian churches still standing in Afghanistan, Christians and Jews are being murdered on a daily basis throughout the ME and churches and synagogues are being burned and bombed including in Iraq. I hear about this on a daily basis and I wonder when our government will speak out…Continue

Keep up-to-date with what's going on with the local "occupy" events.
See video and pictures here:
America, don’t be fooled. The 99% is a lie. That’s right, a big fat lie! There may be 99% of something somewhere but it is NOT 99% of Americans being taken advantage of by the 1% who are super-rich. The real story is that 53% of American federal tax filers pay ALL of the money that it takes to run this country while 47% pay nothing - nothing in federal income taxes. Here’s the story on that…

No doubt there's more Gloom-and-Doom out there than Hope-and-Change. But let me share with you a column written by the brilliant Victor Davis Hanson. Combining his conservatism, knowledge of military history, and talent for the written word, Hanson encourages us to hang on -- he foresees a luminous return of America the Exceptional after the dark days of Obama have passed.
From the article:
"OK—So Why the Optimism?
Why, then, do I see blue sky and a…Continue
