My 5 Favorite Pictures from CPAC 2012
15 Feb 2012 12:07 am
From Alexa Shrugged:
Ok, considering I only took about 20 pictures, this listing could have been better. I was so lame at CPAC this year that I didn’t even see John Hawkins long enough to make it into his post The CPAC 2012 Experience: 43 Pictures like I have in years past! I worked and didn’t go out Thursday or Friday and was sick on Saturday so I missed out on a TON of fun and I am really disappointed. I miss CPAC already – can’t wait for 2013, in so …

The man with the plan! Real Clear Politics has this clip of Obama demonstrating his economic genius:
Obama: I Want An Economy “Where We’re Making Stuff And Selling Stuff And Moving It Around”
“On Tuesday at the State of the Union, I laid out my vision for how we move forward,” President Obama said at a campaign event in Las Vegas, Nevada. “I laid out a blueprint for an economy that’s built to last, that has a firm foundation. Where we’re making stuff and selling stuff and moving it around …
The Greatest Role of All: Motherhood, Feminism, and Natalie Portman
1 Mar 2011 2:13 pm
Sunday night at the Oscars, Natalie Portman was giving her acceptance speech for Best Actress when she thanked “my beautiful love, Benjamin Millepied who choreographed the film and has now given me the most important role of my life” – motherhood. It was a beautiful moment, but this Salon writer, Mary Elizabeth Williams, found Portman’s words “jarring.” She got the creepy-crawlies at the thought of motherhood. She doesn’t like it when people:
refer to motherhood as the most important thing a woman can possibly do … is motherhood really …
Church, State and the First Amendment: What Coons needs to know

I read this article by Ken Paulson, the President of the First Amendment Center and had to respond to almost everything he wrote.
Church, State and the First Amendment: What O’Donnell needs to know
Sometimes political debates generate light as well as heat.
Delaware Republican Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell’s question “Where in the Constitution is the separation of church and state?” in an exchange Oct. 19 over teaching creationism in public schools tells us something about her but also reminds us of how often America’s bedrock principles on government and religion are misunderstood.
Wanted: Another Massachusetts Miracle – Beat Barney Frank!

Two things I never thought I’d see in my lifetime: the Red Sox win the World Series (and it happened TWICE!!!) and a Republican in Kennedy’s seat (the PEOPLE’s seat!)I am now a believer in miracles! Never say never – anything can happen, you just gotta believe!
Now we have a chance to send Bahney Frank back home to his boyfriend’s gay prostitution ring.
Bahney’s rap sheet is a mile long, but perhaps his worst crime against the country was “rolling the dice” with Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and helping …
Embryonic Stem Cell Research Just More “Hope” and “Change”
3 Aug 2010 8:35 am
Told ya so! Adult stem cells are actually successful while embryonic is all “hope” and “change” and no substance or results. What is it about people fixating on promoting scientific research that kills a unique human life and has no evidence of curing anyone? Why has this been a cause celeb?
Is the culture of death that entrenched? Are they doing it just because it is unethical and want to push boundaries? That they want to debase human life to protect their “logic” for abortion, among …
Dumb Dems’ Job Ideas: Who’s Crazier?
8 Jul 2010 10:57 am
Via Ace of Spades and UK Guardian – Alvin Greene, the crazy jobless guy running for Senate in South Carolina has ideas on how to create jobs:
“Another thing we can do for jobs is make toys of me, especially for the holidays. Little dolls. Me. Like maybe little action dolls. Me in an army uniform, air force uniform, and me in my suit. They can make toys of me and my vehicle, especially for the holidays and Christmas for the kids. That’s something that would create jobs. So you see …

The Sri Lankan study is the fourth epidemiological study in fourteen months to report an abortion-breast cancer link, including studies from the U.S., China and Turkey.
The studies are piling up. How long will the pro-aborts be able to continue to keep this quiet? Thought they cared about women’s lives (yeah right!)

Son pleads for help as mother awaits stoning in Iran CNN
“Legally, it’s all over, and we have no chance. It’s a done deal. Sakine can be stoned at any minute. But we have experienced again and again that when we organize events world-wide, when we protest world-wide, and in particular when we contact European governments and these governments put pressure on the Islamic regime in Iran, sometimes we have a chance.”
This needs more attention!!! It really makes you appreciate the rights and freedoms we have in America – including …

Why Obamanomics Has Failed WSJ
The president, his friends and advisers talk endlessly about the circumstances they inherited as a way of avoiding responsibility for the 18 months for which they are responsible. But they want new stimulus measures—which is convincing evidence that they too recognize that the earlier measures failed.
EXACTLY! Instead of blaming Bush, get up and do something about it! Kind of like Gov. McDonnell did!

Census Workers Sensing Danger?

I in no way condone acts of violence or threats of violence toward Census workers, or anyone else, but this article over the weekend really got to me.
An unexpected result for some census takers: the wrath of irate Americans
Since they began making follow-up house calls in early May, census takers have encountered vitriol, menace and flashes of violence. They have been shot at with pellet guns and hit by baseball bats. They have been confronted with pickaxes, crossbows and hammers. …
