Thoughts About Chick-Fil-A
“The wicked have drawn out the sword, and have bent their bow, to cast down the poor and needy, and to slay such as be of upright conversation.” Psalm 37: 14
How many of us truly know that God is more powerful than any situation we may face, not only in our personal lives, but also the future life of our nation? Most of the time, He is only waiting for two situations to unfold. First, He is waiting for the devil to do something harmful to His eternal purpose. Second, He usually waits for someone, or some group of people, to step forward against the devil, so He can use them to secure the victory. read more »
The best objection I’ve heard to Mitt Romney’s nominating seven-term Wisconsin Representative/financial wunderkind Paul Ryan as his vice-presidential running mate is that Ryan could do more good for the country’s financial health as Chair of the House Budget Committee.
The 42-year-old Ryan has certainly done some amazing things in his dozen years in Congress—most notably rolling out his 2010/2012 “Path to Prosperity” proposals, which would cut trillions from the deficit, turn the Medicare program into a voucher system, and simplify the tax code.
But Romney can do even more to fix our budget woes as President than Ryan can in Congress. And Romney is most likely to end up President with Ryan on the ticket.
Ergo, Ryan must join Romney.
How formidable a Romney-Ryan ticket would be. Ryan has demonstrated a masterful ability to articulate budget and spending issues in such a way that everyday voters can understand just how thoroughly Democrats are screwing us over. He’s put serious entitlement reform proposals on the table for the first time in a decade. He’s resisted caving in to faux-conservative RINO-bait like temporary payroll tax cut extensions. He’s earned the deep respect of conservatives while getting under Obama’s thin skin and driving fear into the hearts of liberals, all wearing a smile. read more »
Now that the savior of the crumbling Salt Lake City Olympics and presumptive Republican presidential nominee has passed through London, liberals are suddenly horrified at the prospect of a U.S. president treating the British shabbily.
The left has moved on from lamenting Mitt Romney’s stay in Great Britain to trashing his trip to Israel, but I’m not done with London yet.
At the start of his visit to attend the opening ceremonies of the 2012 Summer Olympics last week, Romney casually noted to Brian Williams that some aspects of Great Britain’s lack of preparations were a bit “disconcerting.”
This probably had something to do with the fact that the security firm contracted to oversee the Olympics didn’t supply enough workers, which forced the British military to supplement these with several thousand troops in order to prevent chaos from breaking out. Also, British immigration officials had threatened a disruptive strike during the Olympics, which they didn’t call off until two days before the opening ceremonies. read more »
Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV), the current majority leader of the U.S. Senate, has been quietly preparing to alter the Senate rules regarding filibusters. Filibusters are normally used by opponents of a measure to talk that measure to death on the Senate floor, thus preventing its passage. In recent years, with a Democrat majority in the Senate, the Republican minority has been making excellent use of the filibuster to prevent new, radical legislation from becoming law in today’s Democrat majority Senate
In the last few week we have heard a great deal of fluff and BS from the Obama camp about Romney's tax returns, his history at Bain Finanancial, and other "transparency" issues. Shockingly nearly everything about Obama has been sealed as well (see below):
Mayor Michael Bloomberg of New York City called on police officers across the country to go on strike until stricter gun control regulations are signed into law.
Bloomberg, an independent, appeared on CNN’s Piers Morgan Tonight Monday in the wake of the shooting in Aurora, CO and said the following in response to a question from Morgan
"I would take it one step further. I don't understand why police officers across this country don't stand up, collectively, and say, 'We're going to go on strike. We're not going to protect you unless you, the public, through your legislature, do what's required to keep us safe."
Bloomberg went on to say that he doesn’t understand the need for civilians to purchase armor-piercing bullets. The shooter in Colorado did not use armor-piercing bullets nor were any police officers injured.
In fact, only law-enforcement officers can purchase armor-piercing bullets, so that’s already a law.
It is also against the law for police officers in New York City to go on strike; a fact Mayor Bloomberg acknowledged Tuesday when he attempted to retract his statement.
The fact is more gun control won’t prevent violence.
If we unarmed every law-abiding citizen then how would we protect ourselves when the police aren’t around? What will save an elderly couple from being robbed if they have no gun to scare off the intruder?
Criminals obviously have no regard for the law or they wouldn’t be criminals. The only effect a complete gun ban will have is more innocent people being killed. read more »
Based on circumstantial evidence, it is infinitely more likely that gunman James Holmes was an Occupy Wall Street sympathizer than a Tea Party supporter. In addition to stockpiling rifles, ammunition, and gas canisters, and possibly being connected to anarchist group Black Bloc, Holmes intricately booby-trapped his apartment to kill or maim police and emergency responders. (I could have it backwards, but I think it’s Occupy and not the Tea Party that slanders the police as heavy-handed, fascist tools of the state.) read more »
Between the lies of the Lame Stream Press and the lies of our glorious leader, there’s little to choose. The country is in horrific shape. The ‘recession’ looks far closer to a depression to me… and to a bunch of other people, too. Hold on to your hats and everything else because it’s nothing, absolutely nothing, to what’s coming if President Barack Hussein Obama manages to get re-elected.
What he, Reid, Pelosi and others have planned for you will be just a shade less onerous than Soviet-era Romania, with jack-booted thugs running around our airports, train stations and bus terminals. Stasi-like informers will be in every apartment block, after they manage to separate us from our property and force us into their high density ‘stacks’.
Our republic is as sorely beset from without as from within. The people running this country are purely, visibly anti-American. To be anti-American is to be anti-freedom… to be anti-freedom is to be someone else’s slave. That these people are driven by a discredited and disproved ideology, which has never been successful in any of its various manifestations, tells worlds about the mindset, or lack of, that permeates the left. read more »
I can’t take credit for the title. I was getting ready for work last Tuesday morning at ‘O dark thirty’. I was listening to our local conservative blowtorch, KSFO 560 AM morning drive show, starring that great nemesis of the Greenie crowd, Brian Sussman. He was talking to an American citizen of Cuban descent whose parents escaped the wonderland of Castro’s communist Cuba. Brian asked him how to say ‘skinny’ in Spanish… and they came up with the gag-line Flaco Communisto. The rest is my own invention, especially apropos given the high regard our glorious leader obviously has for he, himself and well… himself.
More and more Americans are beginning to see that the (self) anointed one is the diametric opposite of hope and change. Unless, of course, you happen to be one of the twenty percent of the American population who are content to exist on whatever meager largess the socialistas masters determine is your share of the communist paradise. America is facing the greatest threat to our existence, our way of life, our freedom and our national security since World War Two, possibly since the Civil War. read more »
The Obama campaign has been running shadowy ads insinuating that Mitt Romney did not leave Bain Capital in 1999, as he claims, but continued to participate in the company’s day-to-day operations until 2002, when he ran for governor of Massachusetts.
The charges are relevant, because the Obama campaign has accused Bain of engaging in mass layoffs, outsourcing to China and Mexico, and bankrupting several companies between 1999 and 2002. The Obama camp implies that Romney was responsible for those events.
Instead of defending the layoffs and outsourcing as necessary for Bain’s proper operation, and noting that bankruptcy was inevitable for several companies that were performing poorly and incapable of recovering, Romney has merely pointed out that he left Bain in 1999 and had no say in its hiring, firing, or outsourcing decisions. read more »
