Bark and shop

April 30, 2012 | By exurbankevin | Comments Off on Bark and shop | Filed in: Arizona, Business, Kevin.

I love, love, LOVE this idea. Too bad it’s in the deserted ghost town formerly known as MetroCenter mall.  How much is that doggy in the window are not words normally associated with Maricopa County Animal Care and Control (MCACC). All that is about to change as MCACC enters into a partnership with Metrocenter Mall • Read More »

Please pardon the delusion

April 28, 2012 | By exurbankevin | Comments Off on Please pardon the delusion | Filed in: Advertising and Marketing, Arizona, GOP, Kevin, MSM and New Media, Politics.

Obama’s hope that Arizona will turn from red to purple and keep him in office for a second term have already been discussed ad nauseum on this blog, but it’s one thing for a paranoid right wing gun nut involved conservative like myself to say he’s got no chance at flipping Arizona, and another for the • Read More »

A TV show every conservative should be watching

Portlandia.  And it doesn’t stop there. “Why don’t you just get a job and go to work like a normal person?” “I do work. I work at a co-op.” “A hippie place.”  “It’s not a hippie place. We like to think of ourselves as more alternative.” “So where do you live?” “I got three roommates • Read More »

We are HUGE MST3k fans here at Exurbanleague, so much so that I once donated a kidney to Tom Servo. So of course I’m going to enjoy this. And as to the endless “Joel vs. Mike” debate, I’ll say “Trace Beaulieu”. The jokes just weren’t as obscure once he left, so it didn’t matter who • Read More »

What is, is constitutional

April 26, 2012 | By exurbankevin | Comments Off on What is, is constitutional | Filed in: Democrats, Kevin, Law, Politics, Religion.

Mark Kikorian call out the elephant in the room as, well, an elephant. In the room. But what’s struck me most over the past few days is how the Left does not even understand the concept of constitutionalism. They virtually all seem to think that “constitutional” means “a policy I like” and “unconstitutional” means “a • Read More »

Quote of the Day, April 25th Edition

April 25, 2012 | By exurbankevin | Comments Off on Quote of the Day, April 25th Edition | Filed in: Arizona, immigration, Kevin, Law.

“Of course, what is going on here is that Obama administration doesn’t want to enforce the immigration laws that Congress has enacted. The essence of its position in the Arizona case is that the federal government has the right to decide not to enforce the law, and if it so decides, then no state has • Read More »

Praise the Lord and pass the schadenfreude

First, it was the utter debacle that was the Obama administration’s defense of it’s one and only signature piece of legislation, now it’s SB1070’s turn in front of the Supreme Court, and things don’t look good for Democrats.  “What does sovereignty mean if it does not include the ability to defend your borders?” Justice Antonin • Read More »

“If the federal government can’t keep the President’s bodyguards from drinking and whoring on duty, how likely is it to be able to run anything competently?” – Glenn Reynolds “As for our moral, ethical, and intellectual superiors in the Democratic Party who don’t appreciate this one bit, here’s a question: If you don’t want to • Read More »

The science is settled: Arizona will vote for Romney

April 21, 2012 | By admindude | Comments Off on The science is settled: Arizona will vote for Romney | Filed in: Uncategorized.

I don’t normally make such definitive statements about politics because voters have this annoying tendency to vote their minds and not mine, but I have years and years of proven scientific results to back me up here.  What is this science that I speak of, you ask? Easy.  Joe Biden says that Arizona is going • Read More »

Give to Brewer that which is Brewer’s

April 20, 2012 | By admindude | Comments Off on Give to Brewer that which is Brewer’s | Filed in: Uncategorized.

Governor Jan Brewer has vetoed a law re-affirming the right of self-defense inside public buildings and signed a bill allowing Bible history teaching in public schools.  Oh fer two, Jan, oh for two.  Does Jan think that a “No Guns Allowed” sign outside a building is some kind of magical force field that keeps all • Read More »

Show me what anti-Semitism looks like

April 19, 2012 | By admindude | Comments Off on Show me what anti-Semitism looks like | Filed in: Uncategorized.

This is what anti-Semitism looks like, posted on the Occupy Wall Street Facebook page.  All that’s missing is a copy of The Protocols Of The Elders Of Zion in the glove box.  And I would note that it looks like they’re endorsing the idea of cutting off Barack Obama’s head and using as a gearshift • Read More »

Fast and Spurious

April 19, 2012 | By admindude | Comments Off on Fast and Spurious | Filed in: Uncategorized.

You would think that people behind a law-enforcement agency’s sting operation designed to halt illegal gun-running into Mexico would be eager to prosecute the criminals they catch in said sting, right?  Right? RIGHT?  Wrong. Two federal agents at the heart of a failed gunrunning investigation are blaming federal prosecutors for allowing illegal buyers to take • Read More »

Two minutes of truth

This. This is why “Fast and Furious” matters. Either sending thousands of guns into Mexico without tracking them and without any resulting prosecutiions is a crime, or else we turn back the clock on one thousands years of the rule of law and go back to the Divine Right of kings.  More …

(In)Security

The New Republic demonstrates it is more than willing to throw Presidential security under the bus in a panicked attempt to limit the damage done by the ongoing Secret(ly) Service(d) hooker scandal. On the other hand, it seems pretty unfair to scapegoat the Secret Service for one wild night in Cartagena after at least two • Read More »

It’s happening again.  I’m seeing comments and blog posts like this pop up all over the dextrosphere. “The Republican candidate is just a RINO squish!

DIck Cheney is at again, blasting the Obama administration.  “I can’t think of a time when I felt it was more important for us to defeat an incumbent president today with respect to Barack Obama.

Ride the decline.

April 16, 2012 | By admindude | Comments Off on Ride the decline. | Filed in: Uncategorized.

A comment I left over at the other Kevin’s, regarding whether the U.S. is a declining nation (or not).  I’m not disagreeing with the overall theme (that the U.S. is declining), but my question is this: If we could reverse the decline of the United States, where would we set the clock back to? 1776? 1789? • Read More »

He is there and He is not silent. And He’s not amused, either.

An acquaintance of mine posted this on Facebook.  Did the author of this offensive poster REALLY think that I hadn’t heard this before? That all of a sudden I wouldn’t have a 140+ IQ because I believe in Christ? That his derision would cause me to turn my back on a faith that has sustained • Read More »

Involuntary Contributions

Remember that your tax dollars currently fund government unions and those funds are taken from workers paychecks automatically. But that might change soon… HB 2103 is a paycheck protection bill that is in the Arizona House right now.  It would prevent union dues from being automatically deducted from worker’s paychecks.  The radical reform is it • Read More »

Ask any liberal, and he/she (or it) will tell you they are TOTALLY over the 2000 election. I mean, yeah, the stupid Chimpy BU$Hitler STOLE the election from Saint Al Gore (Praise Be Unto Him), but really, that’s twelve years ago. I’m not upset about it anymore. Really.

Just playing the odds: Obama’s background, culture, people, and world-view are (A) Chicago Political Machine coupled with (B) racism/victim entitlement. Romney’s background, culture, people, and world-view are (A) Mormon coupled with (B) successful big business. Romney himself may not be exactly representative of those folks, but I’ll wager my [whatever] that he’ll be a whoooole • Read More »

You go to war with the candidate you have.

April 10, 2012 | By exurbankevin | Comments Off on You go to war with the candidate you have. | Filed in: Current Events, GOP, Kevin, MSM and New Media, Politics.

Ok, enough is enough. Is Mitt Romney a true-blue dyed in wool conservative who believes in small government, is pro-life and pro-gun and wants everything that Ronald Reagan wanted, only moreso?  Probably not.  Is he better than Obama on all of the above?  Oh heck yes.  Look, I didn’t move down here to live in • Read More »
