Here is some more of the New Civility™. Andre Carson (D-IL) on what he thinks the Tea Party wants. One word for this, disgusting. Its a theme we are seeing more of as liberal, Democrat policies are challenged.  The merits of policy are not being discussed, instead imaginary and ugly motives are being attributed to • Read More »

Failure is an Option

August 30, 2011 | By admindude | Comments Off on Failure is an Option | Filed in: Uncategorized.

In fact, failure can be a catalyst for success. Consider the Apple Lisa… It was a flop. Did it stop Steve Jobs? Nope. Why? He learned from his failures. This attribute is why Apple is so successful (this coming from a Windows guy) and others like Xerox missed countless opportunities.  There is a social/economic/political angle • Read More »

A Conspiracy of Fredos

  The wheels on the bus go bumpbumpbump…  First came word that ATF Acting Director Melson is shuffled off to a nice, safe desk job at the Dept. of Justice, and now we find out that U.S. Attorney for the District of Arizona Dennis Burke is out the door as well.  Looks like Attorney General • Read More »

Go now bag

Hurricane Irene is again stirring interest in disaster preparedness, and as ExLg’s resident gun nut shooting sports enthusiast, I thought I’d do a quick rundown of what I have with me as my personal “go bag”.  I’ve crafted a three-day kit for the unique needs of living in the Phoenix metro area, and the Paladin • Read More »

More Punishment

August 25, 2011 | By admindude | Comments Off on More Punishment | Filed in: Uncategorized.

There is no reward for honesty, just more punishment. Case in point, Standard & Poor’s (S&P). Its bad enough that they are being investigated by the Federal Government after they downgraded American’s credit rating but now, they are going to be lead by the former COO of CitiBank. You know, one of those “Too Big • Read More »

They ain’t making Jews like Kinky anymore

Kinky Friedman, Texas’ best-known mensch, endorses Rick Perry, his once-bitter political rival, for President.  Boy howdy, does he endorse him.  So would I support Rick Perry for president? Hell, yes! As the last nail that hasn’t been hammered down in this country, I agree with Rick that there are already too damn many laws, taxes, • Read More »

On a Highway to Hell

The New Civility™ is evident among our leaders.  Exhibit Z, Maxine Waters (D-CA) at the “Kitchen Table Summit” in Inglewood.  The fun starts at 1:48, watch for yourself. What she is really saying is that leftists like her don’t like being challenged by limited government types. To them, the Tea Party represents an existential threat, • Read More »

Hat’s Off!

August 23, 2011 | By admindude | Comments Off on Hat’s Off! | Filed in: Uncategorized.

Isn’t it interesting to hear somebody on the left side of the aisle call her political opponents “enemies”  when she speaks. I guess the New Civility™ does not apply to those who believe in Constitutional, limited government. Just remember, she was elected by her constituents… They must like a lady who owns a lot of • Read More »

Let the punishment begin. It seems that Standard and Poor’s (S&P) was naughty according to the Department of Justice. I am sure this has nothing to do with their downgrading of the United States credit rating. …oh, and I’m positive that the Community Reinvestment Act had nothing to do with the Financial Crisis either. Move • Read More »

In Theory…

Would you trust your economy and financial health of over three hundred million of citizens to the theories of this man? If the past few years have demonstrated anything, many still do. The worst part about it, they are the ones in power. Sucks to be us. What is becomming evident to most is that • Read More »

By Design

August 9, 2011 | By admindude | Comments Off on By Design | Filed in: Uncategorized.

Some in the MSM would have you believe that the tone and rancor during the debt ceiling debate was out of the ordinary in American history. I mean, its nothing like Northern cartoonists depicting Jefferson Davis being captured by Union soldiers while in drag. All manner of nonsense and hyperbole is being used to describe • Read More »

And I bet he drove an AMC Pacer, too*

Sometimes, I almost feel sorry for the hard left. They’re stuck with a President whose Plan A is to pretend like he’s President and then expect the actual work of Presidentin’ to follow suit. His Plan A is to say whatever is on the teleprompter and his Plan B (and C, and D) is to • Read More »

The Truth

Can you handle the truth? We might have to when it comes to the social welfare state. Whatever guise it comes in (Scandinavian, Northern European, Southern European, British, American) the truth is that capitalism can’t support the welfare state.  Taking more money from producers and giving it to the swelling ranks of the retired or • Read More »

Quote of the Decade

“If the US Government was a family, they would be making $58,000 a year, they spend $75,000 a year, & are $327,000 in credit card debt. They are currently proposing BIG spending cuts to reduce their spending to $72,000 a year. These are the actual proportions of the federal budget & debt, reduced to a • Read More »

During the recent debt ceiling negotions, President Obama was not even present. No, I don’t mean he voted “present” like he has in the past.  I mean he was not even in the room!  Two weeks ago, a meeting was scheduled to take place between the leaders of the House and Senate along with the • Read More »

After decades of over-spending, governments get a bad financial hangover. Watch this longish interview with Niall Ferguson on YouTube where he talks about the financial hangover we are in.  Enjoy… More …

The Long Game

The recent saga with the debt ceiling may have resembled a game of high-stakes poker, but actually its really a long chess match. The contest is not won in one hand, indeed it is a long game requiring multiple moves. Thats an important fact to remember for those of us on the individual liberty/freedom/capitalist/Constitutional/conservative/small government • Read More »
