Entertaining Possibilities

Mitt Romney out-raising Barack Obama with the entertainment crowd? Apparently Mitt Roomney is popular in Hollywood,  he raised $6 million last week at a fundraiser hosted by Robert Davi and David Foster.  This was more than the prezzy earned the previous week at the 40/40 Club with Jay-Z and company.  The fact that straight-laced traditional • Read More »

Another example of hard-working Mexicans doing the jobs Americans won’t

Univision does justice to the Fast And Furious scandal by showing just how many people have been killed by Eric Holder’s ill-fated attempt to use violence in another country to limit American civil rights.  Additional guns, previously unreported by congressional investigators, found their way into the hands of drug traffickers across Latin America in countries • Read More »

WINNING? – Part I

September 28, 2012 | By exurbandoug | Comments Off on WINNING? – Part I | Filed in: Current Events, Democrats, History, MSM and New Media, politcs, Politics.

Who’s winning? Depends upon who you ask. Obama’s Cheerleaders (MSM/DNC/OFA) have been proclaiming that Teh Won is ahead in all the battleground states and is going win again in November.  You see the same thing everywhere, even on many center-right blogs, Obama is going to win despite everything.  The meme also says that the Romney • Read More »

NOW the media is finally concerned about voter fraud

September 28, 2012 | By exurbankevin | Comments Off on NOW the media is finally concerned about voter fraud | Filed in: Democrats, GOP, Kevin, MSM and New Media, Politics.

When it’s (alleged) Republican voter fraud, of course. Election officials in six Florida counties are investigating what appears to be “hundreds” of cases of suspected voter fraud by a GOP consulting firm that has been paid nearly $3 million by the Republican National Committee to register Republican voters in five key battleground states, state officials • Read More »

Alphabet Soup of Nonsense

September 27, 2012 | By exurbandoug | Comments Off on Alphabet Soup of Nonsense | Filed in: politcs.

I don’t watch cable TV or broadcast networks, therefore I limit my exposure to their garbage. That doesn’t stop the Legacy Media from producing more of it though and peddling it as valuable information. On the Jim Sharpe Show a couple mornings ago, the host and Junkman were talking about the skewed polling numbers being • Read More »

Unassisted

DC could learn something from Bay Area techies. Like “Stay the hell away!” I don’t have a single Apple product in my household but I still admire their record of success over the last four decades.  They went from a start-up in a garage to the highest valued company ever.  All this without government involvement/interference/meddling.  • Read More »

Unused Potential

September 25, 2012 | By exurbandoug | Comments Off on Unused Potential | Filed in: Business, Economics, Politics.

For the last few months one thought has lingered in the back of my mind, the incredible amount of unused potential in the US economy. Think about it, between Depression 2.0 and the myriad of governmental regulations, life is difficult for most businesses.  The ones that are politically well-connected are doing fine (for the moment) • Read More »

Cause, meet effect. Effect, cause.

“Tucson was the sixth-poorest of the nation’s large metropolitan areas in 2011, with a poverty rate of 20.4 percent, according to new data from the Census Bureau. That rate, which was well above the national poverty rate of 15.9 percent last year, was attributed to the region’s high unemployment, slow economic growth, low education levels • Read More »

Numbers Game

An oft-used bash against conservatives is “How you can know anything, you Rethuglicans, you just watch Fox News and they tell you what to do!”, meaning that conservatives are ill-informed and ill-prepared to debate the merits of an idea. Except, of course, we’re not.  Despite their record-low trust in media, Republicans are the partisan group • Read More »

Barry and Moochelle (his beard) sure like to party.  I mean, not everybody can rub shoulders with Jay-Z, Beyonce, and a $105,000 tower of champagne. Zero is still popular amongst the glitterati and can raise some serious cash from them.  After all, successful entertainers still have money in their bank accounts and can throw the • Read More »

We’re lost a good man.  Larry Dever, the four-term Republican sheriff of Cochise County, has died in a one-vehicle crash near the northern Arizona town of Williams. He was 60. Dever’s death was confirmed early Wednesday by the sheriff’s department. The department declined to release details of the crash or his death.  Sheriff Dever made • Read More »

Saw this add on another website:    Ummn, if he were truly “Indepenedent”, he’d be running as, oh, I don’t know, AN INDEPENDENT.  But he’s not. He’s running as a Democrat. A Democrat that supports Obamacare. A Democrat that was recruited by Obama to run in this election.  The Democratic brand is so toxic that • Read More »

The United States. Land of the Free. Capitalism’s best hope. Land of Opportunity.  Or not.  The annual Economic Freedom of the World report, released Tuesday, has Canada tied in fifth place with Australia — up one spot from last year. Hong Kong remains at the top, Singapore’s next, then New Zealand. Meanwhile, the United States, • Read More »

Maybe she could shine some light on the Europeans… Oft times, people on the Left (college professors, media types, Democrat politicians, and others) point to the social welfare state in most of Europe as something our nation should emulate.  Over time, the US has become more European regarding greater government involvement in both the marketplace • Read More »

Toxic Obama

September 15, 2012 | By exurbandoug | Comments Off on Toxic Obama | Filed in: politcs.

Forget about what the Make Believe Media says, President Obama is one toxic fellow. As this article states: …the Obama administration is becoming publicly toxic as the American people begin to seek answers to certain questions – questions only the administration can answer and where the administration’s former hijinx touch-stones of: Bush did it, Racism, Sexism, Rich vs. Poor, etc… are as broke as the administration’s • Read More »

Same planet, different worlds.

The video that played before the opening of the 2012 Democratic National Convention…  “The government is the only thing we all belong to.”  Now compare that with… “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, • Read More »

Endangered Species? Others have written about it over the last couple of years, but this article from New Geography lays it out very well.  What we are seeing now is a struggle between two different classes in which one will emerge victorious in the coming years while the other shrinks in size and power.  The • Read More »

Fast Forward … to 1979

Just another in the seemingly endless comparisons between one failed liberal Democratic President to another.  If only we had a Nobel Peace Prize winner as President, this wouldn’t have happened! 

Democrats support the military, just not the *American* military.

This is what happens when you let a bunch of academics and union thugs take over your political party: You can’t tell one military from the other.  First it was the Democrats supporting the troops. The Canadian troops, that is.  Then, not learning from their mistakes, they did it again.  And then, after all that, • Read More »

Down the Drain

Your tax dollars, down the drain. All this in an effort to keep GM afloat payoff the unions for their support. Despite billions in taxpayer “investment” and screwing over the bond holders, GM is not doing very well these days.  Despite what DNC mouthpieces say, the auto bailout has not worked out.  As Michael Barone • Read More »

Bloomberg’s latest ban

Severe weather struck New York City overnight as a cold front swept into the Northeast and brought two tornadoes to the New York City area. Mayor Michael Bloomberg, mindful of his poor response to other natural disasters, moved quickly to reduce the damage from the extreme weather by banning tornadoes from New York City. “It • Read More »
