Proof Positive | All Expense Paid Tour of a Racebaiter’s Mind

Most of us have never heard of this guy Tour before. With any luck, most of us never will again.Clueless Joe Biden is trying to brand Mitt Romney and the Republicans as racist, as wanting to put blacks “back into chains”, and when Mitt responds to having been called a felon, a tax cheat and a racist, he notes the desperation of the Obama/Biden campaign. At this point, Obama’s surrogates point a finger and accuse Romneyof racism, of using “code words” for racism. I hardly know whether to laugh or cry, when Biden accuses Romney of wanting to enslave blacks and Romney is the one attacked for his imaginary “racism”.The evidence? Romney used the word “angry” twice. Twice I tell you!!!

J O S H U A P U N D I T | Lead Plaintiff In PA Voter ID Law Suit Gets Her Photo ID..

This must have upset the lefty lawyers pushing the suit no end.

A Conservative Teacher | Comic: Ryan Plan vs Obama Plan

It really isn’t complicated- currently Social Security and Medicare are projected to go bankrupt and collapse sometime in the coming decades, and if the United States continues to spend more money than it takes in that at some point in the future the United States will also go bankrupt and collapse. If reforms are put in place now rather than later, the reforms can be smaller and act over a longer period of time to correct the insolvency of these programs and the United States. If reforms are not put in place now, then the reforms will be sharper, harsher, and more disruptive to society- all bad things. We elect Presidents and Congressmen to put in place these reforms. Paul Ryan has put forward such a reform, Mitt Romney has offered another variation on that reform. The Democrats, who controlled Congress from 2007-2011 and who have controlled the Senate from 2007 to today and who have controlled the Executive Branch from 2009 to today, have put forward no plans at all.

Old Virginia Blog | So Who’s Obsessed With The Confederate Flag?

According to certain bloggers, everyone but them, even though an objective look at the evidence shows quite the opposite. For example, just search these two academic related history blogs (here and here) using the search phrase “Confederate Flag” and “Confederate Heritage” and see what you get. Quite instructive.

Both Levin and Simpson focus many, if not most, of their posts discussing those who are “obsessed” with the Confederate flag and their Confederate heritage. What, are they envious?

Personal Observations Of Our Society – Where Are Our Priorities?

I doubt if I am the only person around who notices these things, but I have observed some things that make me wonder about our society. These things make me question if we will be able to see any meaningful change to the place America finds herself in. Is it just me or are our priorities completely messed up?

Doug Ross @ Journal | Say, do you remember when we didn’t need Keystone XL because we were awash in crude oil?

Keystone XL? What’s that?

News out this afternoon is that Obama is looking into opening the Strategic Petroleum Reserve as a means to relieve pressure at the gas pump.  Someone at the White House woke up and realized that the welcome springtime fall in gasoline prices has reversed course and retraced its steps, as shown [below].  I can tell you that out here on the Left Coast, the price of premium gasoline has reached $4.99 a gallon at my nearest station, but then California deserves it.

The Lonely Conservative | Economic Freedom is Worth Fighting For

What does economic freedom mean to you? Does it mean you are free to sit at home collecting a check – money that someone else worked for – or does it mean going out there and actually earning a living? I’ll take economic freedom every day of the week, even those weeks when things are looking down. What’s the alternative? Sometimes life deals you a bad hand. It’s what you do with that hand that counts. Do you want a bunch of nameless, faceless government bureaucrats being in charge of your life, or do you want to be in charge of your own life?

Then the woman to her left says several times, “zip it till she’s finished speaking,” or something close to that. Hoglund spits in her face.

Ana the Imp | The other Joads

Many people will be familiar with the story of the Joad family from John Steinbecks novel The Grapes of Wrath, the great epic of the Great Depression in America, or from the film of the same name directed by John Ford and starring Henry Fonda as Tom Joad.  Tom and his family are dirt poor Okies, who escape from Oklahomas ever expanding Dust Bowl, moving west to California in search of a better life.  Instead they are met with hostility and exploitation.
The Joads were lucky.  There were other Joads, other poor Americans who tried to flee the Depression, going off in search of a better life, taking their families with them.  But these people did not go west; they went east; they went all the way to Stalins Russia.  There they met something worse than hostility and exploitation; there they met slavery and death.

SENTRY JOURNAL | Why Obama and the Democrats are going to lose the Medicare debate

Nancy Pelosi once said of Obamacare that we had to pass it so we can find out what’s in it. Well one of the big stink bombs that the Democrats don’t want to talk about is the massive cuts they made to Medicare when they passed Obamacare. These cuts were designed to keep Obamacare deficit neutral and was a key provision that helped both the House and Senate pass the the bill in March 2010. In fact in the below video President Obama stated that he would veto the bill if there was any attempt to undo the cuts to Medicare. Check it out.
So how have the Democrats received a free pass for so long in regards to the massive cuts they made to Medicare when they passed Obamacare?

Thank you for the link (via Conservative Hideout 2.0)! I think it is important to remember that it is conservatives that truly care about fighting poverty and that our approach that celebrates life, liberty, and the protection of property will do more in the long run to help people out of poverty than the Obama/Biden approach HAS done (the facts are clear- 10 million more in poverty). Thanks again for the link!
