Local Boy Makes It To The Big Time

September 26, 2015 | By KevinC | Comments Off on Local Boy Makes It To The Big Time | Filed in: Arizona, blogging, Current Events, Doug, Jon, Kevin, MSM and New Media, politcs, Politics, steve, Todd.

Four guys were hanging around a coffee shop on a Saturday morning in 2006, solving all the world’s problems in just a few hours. We’d known each other from college, and all of us shared a passion for technology, Christ, our families, and our country. Oh, and Salma Hayek. Her too. We decided to start • Read More »

Confederate Flag Musings

December 10, 2014 | By exurbandoug | Comments Off on Confederate Flag Musings | Filed in: Culture, Doug, Guns, Politics.

I was at the Crossroads of the West Gun Show in Phoenix a few days ago checking out various firearms and other items on display. Such expositions are a great place for freedom-loving people to conduct business and support their civil right to bear arms. However, there were a few displays of one particular symbol • Read More »

What Recovery?

December 31, 2013 | By exurbandoug | Comments Off on What Recovery? | Filed in: Doug, Economics.

Despite what the MSM and the Administration say, there isn’t much economic growth going on. Latest example, this article on the fallacy of an economic recovery. When you have lost Mother Jones, you have lost the Left.

A Day at the Range

January 7, 2013 | By exurbandoug | Comments Off on A Day at the Range | Filed in: Culture, Current Events, Doug, Guns.

This past Saturday, exurbanKevin organized an event down in Casa Grande where Arizona firearms enthusiasts could meet and shoot.  It was a good time and worthy of a post here at Exurban League.  You can read exurbanKevin’s post about the event by going here, or you can keep reading my account. First of all, anybody • Read More »

On Target

January 3, 2013 | By exurbandoug | Comments Off on On Target | Filed in: Crime, Current Events, Doug, Guns, Politics.

Part of being a marksman is being able to hit a target.  That skill requires keen perception, self-discipline, body control, and steady nerves to be successful after countless hours of practice.  I confess that I am not a marksman…yet, but I can discern some who are highly accurate practitioners of their craft. Case in point, • Read More »

Taking Our Guns

December 23, 2012 | By exurbandoug | Comments Off on Taking Our Guns | Filed in: Crime, Current Events, Democrats, Doug, Guns.

…yes, that’s what the Left wants. Need proof?  If you can bear it, go to the Daily Kos and read this admission. Need more proof?  Governor Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) is talking about “confiscating” being an option. The refrain that is being heard is a call to ban those scary, black “assault rifles” and other arms • Read More »

No Hope, No Change

December 21, 2012 | By exurbandoug | Comments Off on No Hope, No Change | Filed in: Democrats, Doug, Environment.

From Hope and Change to more of the same.  As Powerline points out, this is the case both with drone strikes and climate change.  Despite a lot of rhetoric dating back to 2008, the current President is continuing on with the policies of the last President.  That is to say, all the environmentalist talk about • Read More »

Profit and Loss

December 19, 2012 | By exurbandoug | Comments Off on Profit and Loss | Filed in: Doug, GOP, Politics.

Profiting by loosing is not a good thing, it takes away the sting of defeat and does not prompt the introspection needed after a loss.  Just as pain is the body’s way of telling you something is wrong, so is losing in elections.  At least on the national level, there seems to be something wrong • Read More »

DOOM, Coming Soon!

December 17, 2012 | By exurbandoug | Comments Off on DOOM, Coming Soon! | Filed in: Culture, Doug, Economics, Politics.

There used to be a regular posting over at Ace of Spades called DOOM, where a blogger would write about events and trends that identified impending problems.  For the past few months, there haven’t been many DOOM updates, mostly because people’s energies were focused on the 2012 elections.  However, a DOOM article from a few • Read More »

Small Business, Big Heart, Union Target

December 12, 2012 | By exurbandoug | Comments Off on Small Business, Big Heart, Union Target | Filed in: Business, Crime, Current Events, Doug, Economics.

Lost in the legacy media’s non-coverage of union violence in Lansing, MI over the past few days was the plight of a local hot dog vendor.  Clint Tarver is a local small businessman who has been operating his hot dog near the State Capitol for years, for a little background watch this short video about • Read More »

Default By Any Other Name

December 11, 2012 | By exurbandoug | Comments Off on Default By Any Other Name | Filed in: Doug, Economics, Politics.

This should not surprise anybody but there are going to be some adjustments coming in the near future.  Forget about the so-called”fiscal cliff” and the debt ceiling talks for now, major changes to entitlement programs are in our future.  Despite the Left’s protests, this is going to happen and it won’t be minor adjustments.  It • Read More »

Do As I Do?

December 10, 2012 | By exurbandoug | Comments Off on Do As I Do? | Filed in: Business, Democrats, Doug, Economics, Politics.

Higher taxes for thee but not for me. Exhibit A, Google. Strange how Northern California liberals and their companies decide not to “share the wealth” as their chosen Presidential candidate (and state government) would. Ironic, yes. Surprising, no.  

C’est Une Falaise

December 9, 2012 | By exurbandoug | Comments Off on C’est Une Falaise | Filed in: Current Events, Democrats, Doug, Economics, GOP, Jon, Money, Politics.

In other words, this is not a cliff. The notion of a “Fiscal Cliff” is a bit of a misnomer.  After all, what is being called a fiscal cliff is an artificial construct engineered by our political leaders.  It was created as a vehicle that would prompt both the White House and Congress to agree • Read More »

The Fight

December 1, 2012 | By exurbandoug | Comments Off on The Fight | Filed in: Doug, Politics.

After Election Day, I was pretty down about the results.  Sure, there were some good results both here in Arizona and in other states.  Overall though, it was a pretty rough night for those of us on the center-right.  Its no surprise that a lot of us were down as a result. However, we can’t • 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 »

Of Ends and Beginnings

November 7, 2012 | By exurbandoug | Comments Off on Of Ends and Beginnings | Filed in: Doug, HEALTH.

Just a short post after Election Day, right now I am pretty drained and a bit depressed over the outcome but that happens from time to time.  We have come to the end of Campaign 2012 and will begin a new terms for a host of elected leaders in January.  Its a cycle that will • Read More »

Tomorrow is the big day! The end is in sight, the finish is near. Make sure you help bring Mitt and Paul across the line. The Obama Era ends tomorrow.

T-2

Two more days to go folks! We are closing in on a historic defeat for Barack Obama, the Left won’t know what hit them on Tuesday.  On Wednesday, the Democrat Civil War will begin and there will be a collective sense of unbelief amongst the Main Stream Media over Bathhouse Barry’s loss.  It will be • Read More »

Three more days until the Golden Era of Hopenchange ends. Its been a long four years, but the Obama Years are coming to an end. One of the reasons why is Main Street is done with Obama and the Democrats.  Not only have things not worked out over the last four years, they are WORSE • Read More »

Here is my bold prediction for Tuesday’s election.   I’m going to do my part of keep Arizona red, go do the same in whatever state you live in.

Duty

…and you think your job is hard? Too bad the Commander in Chief doesn’t take his duties to protect live Americans as seriously as these guards do for deceased ones. Note the bayonets at the end of the M-14s.

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 »
