this st. patrick's day--take the pledge to be more considerate of liberals


On Saint Patrick’s Day this year, why not try to be a little more compassionate toward non-Christians. Just like the majority of us can feel proud that we have eliminated any reference to “Christ” around December 25, we must learn to remove any religious connotation from all occasions that have their origins in religion.

Give these things a try this March 17 in an attempt to neutralize this tradition:

Instead of saying, “How about going out for a Jigg’s dinner,” try ”Would you like to join me in a corned beef and cabbage meal that is unrelated to any specific occasion?”

Never wear green on St. Patrick’s Day. It’s like displaying a neon sign on your body that screams “I’m celebrating a Christian holiday" to the small percentage of the population who would be offended by such things. How insensitive can you be?

When your co-workers are passing around pitchers of green beer at your after-work gathering, tell them, “No thanks, I’m having the Agnostic Ale.”

Justice Scalia: ‘Constitution is Not a Living Organism’

"During a speech in Atlanta Friday, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia on Friday defended interpreting the Constitution as it was originally written and intended".

"Scalia delivered a speech titled “Interpreting the Constitution: A View From the High Court,” as part of a constitutional symposium hosted by the State Bar of Georgia. Originalism and trying to figure out precisely what the ratified document means is the only option, otherwise you’re just telling judges to govern, Scalia argued."

One Brave Mom in Detroit

This article speaks for itself. It could be summed up as, 'Yes we are living in a police state'... but at least we have a few decent judges left. I could be hoping against hope here, but do not expect to seek this kind of insanity under the current Mayor.


Bloomberg the little hypocrite dictator

"Asked if he could outspend the National Rifle Association and other opponents of gun control measures, Bloomberg casually replied, “Oh sure.”

Republicans against States' Rights and for More Laws and Spending!

Yup, here it is, a Republican bill that makes the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT BIGGER in order to piss all over STATES' RIGHTS and spend more money on another losing war.


Republican hypocrisy at its finest. Disregard states' rights, disregard the will of the people, forget libertarianism, regulate the market. Welcome to the GOP, Hypocrisy Central.

John Kerry to the rescue!

Thank God John Kerry is on our side!

The one-time skipper of a swift boat is showing us what a great leader he and the President are by striking fear into the hearts of the Russian despots.

Today they have drawn a line in the sand. From that line... you... shall.... NOT.... PASS!


That's right folks. The administration has issued it's ultimatum to the Russian government. Reverse course.... or else.

more obama hypocrisy




OK, TOLEDO, HERE WE GO AGAIN: Bob Vasquez, sitting school board member, is officially running for the vacant seat on Toledo city council. If he wins and knowing the voting history of Toledoans, he probably will, he will then join Ford, Steel and Sykes who were on the school board and ran TPS into the ground. I guess they will finish off Toledo.

Viguerie has it exactly right

Republican candidates should STOP submitting to liberal inquisitors. And the "party of stupid" is a wonderfully accurate title for a political party that allows the liberal media to eviscerate it every 2 years in so-called debates:


If conservative moderators are not to be allowed on network TV, then Republican candidates should simply stop participating in these liberal-moderator, so called, "debates". Just say "no".

Connecticut Cop Wants to Kick in Doors & Confiscate Guns

"On Saturday,a Connecticut police officer who said he wanted to bust through one patriot's door and take his guns."
"The evidence is clear of what Officer Joseph Peterson of the Branford Police Department said. In the course of the conversation, he actually spilled the beans on what gun registration is all about: Taking your guns; which every red-blooded, American gun owner knows already."
to the actual screenshots.)
"Peterson told several gun owners, some of whom he engaged were not from Connecticut,

We hope we hope we hope

... that Dr. Ben Carson does indeed run for prez in 2016.


And that is the DEMS' GREATEST FEAR. They will not be able to demonize Carson, and they already know it. Think about it. In debates, the likes of Scott Pelley, Diane Sawyer, Candy whats-her-name - would be unable to be snotty, rude or stupid when "questioning" Dr. Carson. He's well spoken, his background and credentials are unassailable.

Obama--anatomy of a hypocrite

So President Obama is planning on vacationing at the Ocean Reef Club in Florida (unless that pesky Ukraine thing gets in the way). This exclusive club is described as a "millionaires' playground." Thank goodness that Obama could take a break from his "Income Inequality" tour to partake in some much needed relaxation (heck--it's been at least six weeks since he returned from his last vacation.)

This resort touts 36-holes of golf, a dozen restaurants, and a 175-slip marina. As Obama soaks in the sun at this paradise that 99.9% of Americans couldn't even dream of visiting, let's look at some of the recent things he has said:


"Making sure our economy works for every working American. It’s why I ran for President."

"But this increasing inequality is most pronounced in our country, and it challenges the very essence of who we are as a people."

"And the result is an economy that’s become profoundly unequal, and families that are more insecure."

Trans-Pacific Partnership = Government Corruption At It's Finest

Servando Gonzales - one of America's best thinkers & writers

Lois Loonbat again incriminates herself

I say, toss this babe in jail for contempt of congress.


Yeah, yeah, yeah, I get what Issa is doing - keeping this major scandal front and center [while the Democrats have been trying to bury it] Issa knows she isn't ever going to tell the truth, either publicly or behind closed doors. I figure Loonbat's thinking goes something like this: Why should I get punished, having already lost my job, when BO gets to stay in HIS cushy job & he is the one who ordered this done.

Delaney pleased with Gallagher dismissal

The only downside to this is now she can focus on party shenanigans.
