Washington DC via New York City and Omaha

May 31, 2012 | By exurbandoug | Comments Off on Washington DC via New York City and Omaha | Filed in: Doug, Uncategorized.

I saw this on the sidebar over at AoS today. Apparently it is newsworthy when a candidate for political office purchases property in the state he is seeking to represent in the Senate.  Maybe former Senator Bob Kerry learned something from former colleague Dick Lugar…  Regardless, the story is a sad commentary on the state • Read More »

Sedona: Where chakra alignment is free, but homeowners aren’t.

May 31, 2012 | By exurbankevin | Comments Off on Sedona: Where chakra alignment is free, but homeowners aren’t. | Filed in: Arizona, Kevin, Law, Politics.

I’m shocked, SHOCKED that such behaviour would pop up in epicenter of lunacy that is Sedona.  The latest attempt comes from Sedona, which made it a crime to rent residential property for fewer than 30 days, and the city defines “rent” very broadly. This means property owners are subject to punishments of up to 6 • Read More »

Back on the Choom Gang

May 30, 2012 | By exurbandoug | Comments Off on Back on the Choom Gang | Filed in: Doug, Uncategorized.

This is your (future) President. This is your (future) President on drugs. Any questions? Barack Obama’s prolonged drug use may explain a lot, like his utter incompetence while in office and seeming disinterest in the duties that come with the office he holds.  Getting high with the “Choom Gang” back in Hawaii may have been • Read More »

I’m not a captain, but I play one in the movies

May 29, 2012 | By exurbankevin | Comments Off on I’m not a captain, but I play one in the movies | Filed in: Advertising and Marketing, Culture, Kevin, Movies.

A friend of mine posted this on Facebook earlier this month.  Pro or anti-gay marriage feelings aside, why do people think that celebrity status immediately conveys political gravitas? Do people REALLY think that the opinion of the actor who portrays a comic book character in the movies (talk about meta…) matters more than any other • Read More »

Happy Memorial Day

“I want to take these few minutes today to thank our men and women in uniform and their families and to ensure them their government and their fellow citizens are determined to provide them with the equipment, training, and, just as importantly, the respect they have so richly earned. With their help, the United States • Read More »

Witness for the delusion

May 25, 2012 | By exurbankevin | Comments Off on Witness for the delusion | Filed in: Arizona, Current Events, Democrats, GOP, immigration, Kevin, MSM and New Media, Politics.

Arizona is SUCH a hotbed of enthusisam for Obama that Ron Barber, the Democrat running to replace Gabby Giffords won’t say whether he’ll for for Obama or not.  Because nothing screams “SWING STATE” like a congressional candidate running and hiding from endorsing his party’s Presidential nominee.   

Upping the ante on a losing hand

First, they were giving away dinner with Obama for free.  Now they’re giving away a dinner with Obama AND Bill Clinton in return for your email address.  Next up, it’ll be Bill, Obama and they’ll dig up the dead Democrat President of your choice and prop up his corpse at the dinner table for you.  • Read More »

Not News to Us

May 24, 2012 | By exurbandoug | Comments Off on Not News to Us | Filed in: Doug, Uncategorized.

I’m going to pick up on a theme that ExKev has written about in the past.  That is the notion that Barack Obama could win Arizona in November. If you have lived in Arizona for any length of time you know that it is a fairly conservative-libertarian state.  It should come as no surprise that • Read More »

On Missed Opportunities

May 22, 2012 | By exurbandoug | Comments Off on On Missed Opportunities | Filed in: Doug, Uncategorized.

If you have three minutes, go here to see a video and read a column that talks about the missed opportunities during the Bush Administration.  Senator Coburn clearly and directly addresses the problems with spending that took place when the GOP controlled the House, Senate, and Presidency.  Those four years represented a squandered opportunity to • Read More »

It’s true: There’s a war on women

May 22, 2012 | By exurbankevin | Comments Off on It’s true: There’s a war on women | Filed in: Current Events, Democrats, GOP, Humor, Kevin, Men.

Let’s do the math, shall we?  Leader of a fringe group of disgruntled extremists? Check Violent acts against the effigy of a political leader? Check Violent acts against the effigy of a WOMAN political leader? Check  Yep, that’s the Republican War On Women™, all right.  Except, of course, that it’s the leader of a public union • Read More »

Fire the boss.

In 2008, Obama called for us to “invest” (spend tax dollars)  on big government projects.  “Although Mr. Obama put no price tag on his plan, he said he would invest record amounts of money in the vast infrastructure program, which also includes work on schools, sewer systems, mass transit, electrical grids, dams and other public • Read More »

ExKev posted his prediction, here is mine: This scenario presumes that Colorado comes down off their Rocky Mountain High with liberal/democrat candidates and that voter fraud in Pennsylvania is insufficient for Barry to carry the state.  NJ and MA are both a bit of a reach but I think the Fat Man will help Romney • Read More »

Calling My Shot

Okay, the last time I tried this, I was spectacularly wrong, but…  Obama wins California, New York, the areas around D.C. and his home state of Kenya Hawaii and Romney wins his home states of Michigan and Massachusets. Christie brings home New Jersey for Romney and Scott Walker and Susan Martinez do the same for • Read More »

32/32nds Liar

May 17, 2012 | By exurbandoug | Comments Off on 32/32nds Liar | Filed in: Doug, Uncategorized.

This woman is white, despite her claims of Native American ancestry. Facts are stubborn things and more of them are emerging that contradict Ms. Warren’s claims that she is part (1/32nd) Cherokee.  One of the more laughable items that has come to light is her contributions to an Indian cookbook.  In Pow Wow Chow (I’m • Read More »

99-0

Today, Democrats and Republicans stand united…against Present Obama’s budget. 99-0 in the Senate against and 414-0 in the House against.  Translation, not a single elected member of the Legislative Branch voted for Barry’s budget.  Not even Nancy Pelosi or Bernie Sanders supported the President! When nobody in your own party votes to support your budget, • Read More »

Delusions of candor

May 16, 2012 | By exurbankevin | Comments Off on Delusions of candor | Filed in: Advertising and Marketing, Arizona, Current Events, Democrats, Economics, GOP, Humor, Kevin, Politics.

A liberal Democrat attempts to explain Obama’s push (putsch?) into Arizona.  Given the convergence of a number of factors, the state is much more winnable than it appears. Start with the “McCain effect” on the 2008 result in the state. There are compelling reasons to believe that GOP performance in Arizona would have been far • Read More »

The Gay Post

May 15, 2012 | By exurbandoug | Comments Off on The Gay Post | Filed in: Doug, Uncategorized.

Who would have thought that President Obama would “evolve” his views on gay marriage to where Vice President Dick Cheney was in…2009? Cheney will never receive any accolades from the elites for his stance on this issue but the media is biased so there is no surprise there.  Obama got a free pass for those • Read More »

Wait, who am I fooling? I LOVE TO GLOAT ABOUT THINGS LIKE THIS!!!!!!!!!  So much for Obama’s social issues strategy.  “Obama is currently running for re-election as an opponent of sexism, homophobia and social reaction in all its forms. This is a decent strategy for winning news cycles, which the administration clearly did last week • Read More »

(Don’t) Cry For the (Non)Indian

When Elizabeth Warren goes down to defeat this fall, I won’t cry for her.  Neither will Anthrax for that matter…. As this whole matter receives more attention, claims of Ms. Warren’s supposed Native American heritage become progressively weaker.  In fact, it looks like there is no evidence that she is even 1/32nd Cherokee.  It just • Read More »

Backup to the backup

While we wait around for the Supreme Court to put Donald Verilli out of our misery and announce that yes, (thankfully) there are limits to what the federal government can do, it’s important to remember there are still plenty of lawsuits against Obamacare to follow. Including one from Arizona’s own Goldwater Institute. The Goldwater Institute • Read More »

Deeper and Deeper

Looks like Friday is not a slow news day after all. Expecially for “Native American” Elizabeth Warren. Captain Ed over at Hotair posted that Harvard actively identified Ms. Warren as a Native American.  I guess they bought into her “family lore” about being a Cherokee.  The Best and Brightest at Cambridge apparently did not research her • Read More »

By the numbers.

May 11, 2012 | By exurbankevin | Comments Off on By the numbers. | Filed in: Advertising and Marketing, Democrats, GOP, Money, Politics.

Let’s break it down.  Black voters in North Carolina voted against civil unions and gay marriage by a 2-1 margin.  Obama says he now supports gay marriage.  Obama won the 2008 election partly because he motivated black voters to go to the polls like no Democrat politician before him.  Obama won North Carolina in the • Read More »

Fauxcahontas

Fauxcahontas (aka “Elizabeth Warren“) is running for Senate in Massachusetts and will face incumbent Scott Brown in November.  Besides being a Northeastern Liberal (which she undoubtedly is), Ms. Warren claims to be part Native American (which she may not be).  This is causing quite a stir in the Bay State and a lot of embarrassment • Read More »

Lesson: Don’t be a Dick

After thirty-six(!) years in the Senate, you’d think this guy would have a bit more class and respect for the voters. Guess that’s why he will be unemployed (Sorry for the NBC link) come January. Richard Lugar has been in Washington, DC for so long, he wasn’t eligible to vote in his own state!  That, • Read More »
