A Consumerist Manifesto

The GOP needs to get cool, and in a hurry. Part of it is style: Sending stiff old fuddy-duddies to do battle against the biggest celebrity on the planet is part of the problem, but the other part is substance. Today’s consumer has now idea how the free market can benefit them. The “Free Obamaphone” • Read More »

What’s Past is Prologue

November 25, 2012 | By exurbandoug | Comments Off on What’s Past is Prologue | Filed in: Doug, GOP, Politics.

In the aftermath of the 2012 Campaign, a lot of us on the right are thinking ahead to 2014 and beyond.  Things did not go our way and we need to start planning for the next elections in the hope of gaining seats in the House of Representatives and Congress.  Beyond that, others are starting • Read More »

Are the Republicans smart enough to figure out that opposing perpetual copyrights is a big, big win for them?  I hope so.  I agree with a whole bunch of other people that the liberty and freedom that conservatism offers is better and cooler than the statism of the left. It ain’t conservatives that are telling you • Read More »

Whoops.  Taliban spokesperson Qari Yousuf Ahmedi was forwarding an email from another Taliban spokesperson last Saturday, but much like your grandmother, he seemed to have confused the BCC (blind carbon copy which keeps emails addresses private) and the CC functions, and published the entire mailing list to everyone on it. According to ABC News, about • Read More »

Confused by the all the shenanigans and goings-on at the CIA, FBI and Pentagon? Not sure who is sleeping with who (and why?).  The National Post has created this handy little infographic so you can keep track at home.  Sex. Betrayal.

The Next Guy

November 14, 2012 | By exurbankevin | Comments Off on The Next Guy | Filed in: GOP, Kevin, Politics.

Republicans have ran the next guy in line as their Presidential candidate ever since the Eisenhower administration.  The candidate after Eisenhower was Nixon. In 1964, the candidate after Nixon was Goldwater, who challenged Nixon from the right in 1960. In 1968, it was Nixon. In the 1976 primary Reagan challenged Ford from the right and • Read More »

Ann “Money for nothing” Kirkpatrick has beaten Jonathan Paton in CD1 and Kirsten “Chicks for free” Sinema has beaten Vernon Parker in Arizona CD9.

Je me souviens.

I remember.  In Flanders fields the poppies blow      Between the crosses, row on row,   That mark our place; and in the sky   The larks, still bravely singing, flyScarce heard amid the guns below. We are the Dead. Short days agoWe lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,   Loved and were loved, and now we lie         In Flanders fields. Take up our • Read More »

My family moved here from Canada in 1983 to get away from the economic stagnation of Canada and enjoy more freedom to live as we saw fit.  Where we will move to if we can’t have freedom in America, of all places?  Vote as if your freedom depended on it, because it does.

I actually enjoy reading The New Republic because they’re one of the few lefty sites out there that respects intellectual integrity. I may not (and usually don’t) agree with what they say, but they usually come to their conclusions by way of logic and not polemics.  And they’re certainly spot-on with their takedown of John • Read More »
