What conservative couldn’t LOVE this author? NAILED NAILED NAILED IT!

I’ll tell you later who wrote it. I don’t want you influenced by all the negative press this guy/gal gets.

“For the first time in 32 years, Democrats got more than 50 percent of the country to vote for their candidate in a national election, and now they want to lecture the Republican Party on how to win elections. Liberal Republicans have joined them, both groups hoping no one will notice that we just lost this election by running the candidate they chose for us. Continue reading

Everybody hear that there is a lion loose in and around Richmond?

I haven’t seen anything in the paper but WRVA has reported various sightings in the past 1-2 months. People swear it is a LION, not a cougar. They are speculating that either it is a mountain lion/bobcat that people mistakenly believe is a lion, or a pet lion that has escaped. ANOTHER reason not to let your kids play in Richmond.

Anybody else beginning to feel that we were had on the bailout package?

They gave us the old Iraq must be invaded bum’s rush, telling us it had to be done NOW or the world would end. NOW NOW NOW! This is more important than the Presidential election! Than ANYTHING! We need the money now! Even not getting the votes the FIRST TIME was a calamity of biblical proportions.

Is the problem that Republicans are too splintered because they think?

Liberals all seem to believe the same thing. They approach every issue the same way. Financial issues they axe a couple questions: what is “fair” and “how can we get the government to fix the problem?” On moral issues, it’s “if it feels good, do it.” On “free speech” issues, it’s freedom is for us, but not for the other guys. On health issues (except for where they intersect with moral issues), it’s “How can we force these chumps to [fill in blank, smoke less, drink less, excercise more, drive less, oops, wrong category]?”  Continue reading
