The 2010 elections are only nine (9) short months away, and the Tea Party movement has momentum on their side. One of the major objectives of the movement, and why it has caught on like wildfire, is to weed out the thinned down conservatives - those conservatives you thought were on your side, but voted too many times with Obama's socialist agenda. One of the most important lessons Ronald Reagan taught us is that when you stick to your core conservative principles -- you win.

This is alarming, and the line between Obama and Mao is becoming very thin. We have already seen the Obama indoctrination of our small children in public schools, and this recruiting through our schools is over the line. Another critical reason why government does not belong in our school system. From Atlas Shrugs

We are all here because we are dissatisfied. It makes no difference if the person who feels that dissatisfaction is a Republican, Libertarian, or a Democrat because, first and foremost, we are Americans. We have a proud history of individualism and self-reliance yet tempered with a team spirit when that is needed. This is what makes the Tea Party successful: you don't have to be anything but you with an open mind to be one of us. And you don't have to give up anything or follow anybody blindly… Continue

what is it that is delaying the seating of Senator Elect Scott Brown. The Military votes are in and counted. They have had no effect of the winner of this seat. It is well over the 10 days required by MA to confirm and the US Senate to seat and elected Senator. Can anyone out there tell me why the Democrates and Republicans alike are being silent on this issue?

When is an increase a decrease? When the government says it is apparently. If Patrick needs some lessons in cutting perhaps he should take a trip to Detroit where the automakers became quite adept at the task until they learned that the federal government could serve as their personal ATM from time to time. Cutting means getting rid of things, like the so-called wind farm scheme that has seen stiffer opposition than the British trying to take Breed’s Hill. Slashing the budget generally does not… Continue

Being the man-child Obama is, could it be possible his attention span is waning? At his 'townhall' in Baltimore today with House Republicans, Obama sounded down right petulant. His comment "I am not an ideologue" was more a defensive response to pundits than a statement, which is becoming more and more frequent.
HAS OBAMA BECOME BORED WITH BEING PRESIDENT?
Perhaps he's not really cut out for -- or up to -- the job… Continue

I know that I may not be the brightess star in the sky, but it seems to me that our Country had about the same money problems that are having now back in the early 1980"s with the savings & loan rip offs.
The biggest differance is that now it is a government contolled rip off, with our government paying bankers, AIG, investment firms, mortage co., etc. to rip us off. At least back then some of the guilty was sent to prison for what they did, and the others went to Washington… Continue

In a weak attempt to keep a campaign promise about transparency, notice that Obama said he would put entitlements online for all to see, not that he would cut
them (another broken campaign promise). This is supposed to be the new Reaganesque fiscally responsible Obama? His State of the Union address was truly historic -- full of contradictions, condescension, pouting, anger and lies, not to mention a historic attack on the Supreme Court. His audacity is only upstaged by his narcissism… Continue

While I don’t wish to speak too harshly about President Obama’s state of the union address, we live in challenging times that call for candor. I call them as I see them, and I hope my frank assessment will be taken as an honest effort to move this conversation forward.
Last night, the president spoke of the “credibility gap” between the public’s expectations of their leaders and what those leaders actually deliver. “Credibility gap” is a good way to describe the chasm between… Continue

The way I see it, 3 things have to change, and soon, before America can be saved. 1-Term limits. 12 years max, go home, no more career politicians porking out at the public trough. 2-Put ALL gov't employees in same programs as you and I. Want to fix and preserve SS? Put all of congress in it and it will take about a week.3- School choice. Let parents decide what school their child attends and you will see immediate and dramatic improvement. Those kids/parents who don't care will quickly be… Continue

ARLINGTON CEMETERY -
On Jeopardy the other night, the final question was " How many steps does the guard take during his walk across the Tomb of the Unknowns ---- All three missed it --
This is really an awesome sight to watch if you've never had the chance. Very moving experience, the soldiers' dedication is very evident, and the changing of the guards is fascinating in the precision of each movement.

Now on to the real business hidden in the title. When started, the original plan was to focus on Massachusetts politics with a strong focus on Beacon Hill. Much to everyone's surprise, Scott Brown happened pulling us into the deeper, murkier, smellier world of national politics. I promise that we will try to get back on track because there really is no dearth of outrage to discuss - he says, thinking specifically of Governor Deval Patrick "cutting" the state budget by adding 3% and using the… Continue

In light of the spin we will inevitably be subject to tonight, let's get some real figures down. Firstly, a freeze is not
a cut, and in order to get a grip on reducing our deficit, you have to reduce spending, Mr. President, but you already know that. That's just going to be Spin No. 1, and the most critical to our existance. Everything else takes a second seat, because if this county goes backrupt, the rest cannot be dealt with.
PRESIDENT OBAMA IS RIGHT, WE HAVE A SPENDING… Continue

Not being a lawyer, but a citizen who knows how precious our freedom of speech is, this piece by Newt Gingrich defines why the recent Supreme Court decision is monumental. There will always be people who abuse, but the right to voice an opinion, either as an individual or as a group, should never be silenced. We see that with the Tea Party movement. Does anyone not believe that Obama would use every trick in the book to silence this 'group' because he now has all the power behind him? Tea Party… Continue

I believe the NW needs to prepare to have a greater role in public safety asap. The economy is chewing away at the enforcement personnel and lay offs are effecting the crime rate rising. Voluteers are needed to get involved and we need to expand, develope, plan and prepare to handle our own security issues in the USA.

I drove out to DC last Wednesday and managed to get to the Capitol early and sold a lot of our Flag of the Second American Revolution. In Fact, I was there so early many of the people in the front of the crowd ended up with our flag. Check out this video on Hannity. Hopefully, some in the media and some politicians were able to figure out the meaning of our flag without hurting their heads too much. Check out Hannity… Continue

Prepare yourselves for the biggest staging event since the styrofoam pillars at the Democratic Party Convention, which had to be moved from the conference hall to a football stadium to handle Obama's ego. I wonder if the 'halls of congress' will be big enough. This is the man who had to stage a [teleprompter] talk before a 6th grade class.
