Zombie Donations

Maybe Bin Laden isn’t dead after all. According to this article, he was able to donate to the Obama Campaign.  All the safeguards that are normally in place were turned-off to accept foreign contributions, which is a violation of US Election Law.  The Romney Campaign has all these safeguards turned on and foreign contributions are • Read More »

Did you know that it has been three and half years since the Senate has approved a budget? Yeah, the Legacy Media has really kept you informed about that haven’t they? A lot of things that have happened since April 29th, 2009.  Here is a quick trip down memory lane with some examples of events • Read More »

Winning? – The Denouement

October 29, 2012 | By exurbandoug | Comments Off on Winning? – The Denouement | Filed in: Current Events, Democrats, Doug, Politics.

Some claim to know a lot about winning… Over the past few weeks I have written a bit about winning the 2012 Election.  For a long time we were told by the Legacy Media that Obama was winning and would sweep Romney aside this fall.  Well, the election is next week and that does not • Read More »

Left, behind

October 29, 2012 | By exurbankevin | Comments Off on Left, behind | Filed in: Current Events, Democrats, Kevin.

Suppose they held a presidential campaign and only 30% of the country supported it?  … if you’re feeling disappointed, insulted, or left out by Obama’s campaign of trivialities and low blows, it’s fair to say the effect was intentional — or at least that Obama was willing to risk offending you for the sake of • Read More »

Media, Mohammed, and Muslims

October 29, 2012 | By exurbandoug | Comments Off on Media, Mohammed, and Muslims | Filed in: Art, Culture, Current Events, Humor, Politics, Religion.

The story is told of a group of people that conducted riots when cartoon images of a religious figure were published. Not that one…these ones! Now some  (including President Obama) said that an amateur video on YouTube caused a series of riots across the Middle East and North Africa, resulting in the deaths of dozens, • Read More »

If Babs is Sad, Maya is Worried about…Minnesota?  As she says: Minnesota and a handful of other states are going to decide this election. Every vote counts, and you probably have friends and family who need a friendly reminder. Use our Facebook app to ask your friends in Minnesota and other battleground states to commit • Read More »

Pulling the Plug on Propaganda

If you rely on the TV networks, the newspapers, or magazines to get your information…you are being lied to.  Just because it looks official doesn’t mean anything. I was at my parent’s house the other day.  Both of them are in their early 70’s and faithfully read the newspaper and watch TV news.  My dad • Read More »

There’s a change in the wind

October 26, 2012 | By exurbankevin | Comments Off on There’s a change in the wind | Filed in: GOP, Humor, Kevin.

Will Mitt Romney be our next President? I hope so, because I believe if we are willing to work for it, and fight for it, and believe in it, then I am absolutely certain that generations from now, we will be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment when • Read More »

Not Adding Up

I guess there is a reason why O became an attorney (who lost his law license) rather than an MBA. Math is hard, in more ways than one. Yes, it can be difficult to understand from a conceptual level as a student.  This is especially true as you get into algebra and calculus.  Sometimes it • Read More »

Winning? – Part VI

Babs is sad. You see, her candidate for President isn’t doing so well.  In fact, he needs more money to prevail over a recalcitrant band of hicks in flyover country the usual Republican suspects.  Here is part of what she wrote in her email on behalf of the DCCC: The Democratic Party urgently needs your • Read More »

Maybe Obama is right, maybe we DO need a lot more teachers. Either than, or Joe Biden’s stupidity is rubbing off on people.  Nope, not a Photoshop. And remember, these are the people who think that George Bush was a moron. 

Winning in the End

Even Frank Rich recognizes the salient truth, Small Government will ultimately triumph in the US. By margins that approach or exceed two to one, a majority of Americans believe that government regulation of business “does more harm than good”; that the federal government should only run things “that cannot be run at the local level”; • Read More »

I don’t want to hear one more @#$! word about how the GOP is “Anti-science”

Not when this sort of thing happens in the socialist paradise of Italy.  Six Italian scientists have been sentenced to six years in prison for what a judge said was a faulty forecast of the 2009 earthquake in L’Aquila. The BBC reports that prosecutors said the scientists, who work for the National Commission for the Forecast • Read More »

Hoarse race

Bitter asks:  “I guess what I’m saying is this doesn’t feel like a close election to me. I see more enthusiasm from Republicans and Democrats, and the President’s major domestic program is still wildly unpopular.”  I think there are two reasons why it SEEMS to a be a close race but isn’t in fact.

An intriguing proposition

Confused by the myriad of ballot propositions out there this year? Vox is doing yeoman’s (yeowoman’s?) work sorting out the why’s and wherefore’s of what questions are one your ballot this go-round.  Go check them out. 

Cracking BRICs

Instead of a counterweight against the USA, two of the BRICs may cracking. Russia and China may appear strong from the outside, but from within both countries have a lot of issues to deal with.  This is no surprise, all nations have problems both big and small.  Free countries openly discuss their issues through the • Read More »

A Helluva Drug

That’s what (the late) Rick James said about cocaine on the Chapelle Show. He spoke from experience… HillBuzz also suspects that the President is suffering from the affects of long-term drug (ab)use.  But one interesting post over at Bookworm Room goes a bit further and discusses the “coke nail” that a younger Barack Obama had • Read More »

It’s not enough for Newsweek to announce it’s going all-digital, now Arizona’s birdcage liner newspaper of record decides it doesn’t want people to sign up for their brand-spanking new pay-per-view website.    “Cookies must be enabled to view articles” as your search engine results?

Madonna wants to know! Well, let’s say President Obama’s Election Night party will be significantly smaller this year compared to 2008. Looks like Bathhouse Barry’s Concession Speech will be at McCormick Place according to people in the know.  Why is this important?  Read this article by a person who has organized events there in the • Read More »

Obama’s talking about binders, Biden is talking about staplers

October 18, 2012 | By exurbankevin | Comments Off on Obama’s talking about binders, Biden is talking about staplers | Filed in: Democrats, Humor, Kevin, Photography.

Because what matters to American voters this year isn’t the economy or jobs or the war on terror, it’s office supplies. Obama seized on Romney’s now meme-ified claim that, in his quest to find female cabinet members in Massachusetts, he picked from “binders full of women” provided to him by outside organizations. “I’ve got to tell you, • Read More »
