Ten-Buck-FridayWeek Nine of a Nine Week Mission, to Seek new life for the Senate, to Boldly hand Harry Reid a trick instead of a treat! Last call, people!

Focusing on the Senate races, is it worth ten bucks a week to you (four pounds of candy corn?) to eliminate Reid’s control and give the Senate responsible leadership again?

With that in mind, here are the eight candidates we’ve backed to date:

Scott Brown – New Hampshire   -2.2

Cory Gardner – Colorado  +3.3

Bill Cassidy – Louisiana  +4.5

Thom Tillis – North Carolina  -1

Tom Cotton – Arkansas  +5

Joni Erst – Iowna  +2.1

David Perdue – Georgia  +.4

Dan Sullivan – Alaska   + 2.2

(All polls via Real Clear Politics)

Originally, the plan was to contribute to the race in MI, where the Dem has a double digit lead.  Therefore, my recommendation is to tag one of the above with a second contribution and put your money where it may do the most good.

(If you mark your contribution as “Ten Buck Friday”, they’ll see if the blogosphere can give them a little bump.)

Be sure to vote this coming Tuesday. Take a friend!

Ten Buck Friday ButtonWeek Eight of a Nine Week Mission, to Seek new life for the Senate, to Boldly send Harry Reid empty handed back to Searchlight!

Those of us who are paying attention have seen positive trends on the majority, if not all, of our Ten Buck Friday candidates. In the words of that noted political analyst, Han Solo: “Don’t get cocky!”

Focusing on the Senate races, is it worth ten bucks a week to you (a paperback book and a biscotti?) to eliminate Reid’s control and give the Senate responsible leadership again?

With that in mind, this week we look to the Senate seat in New Hampshire. Can you contribute just $10 to Senate candidate Scott Brown ?

Real Clear Politics has Brown down by 1.6 (up 3 points from a week ago)  but rates the race as a toss up.

You can contribute to Scott Brown here. Good luck and Godspeed, Scott!

Ten-Buck-Friday

Back in halcyon years of old (2010), some conservative bloggers put forth a plan where, a poll would be taken of conservative candidates around the country and the winner would be the recipient of a ten dollar contribution to their campaign. Forgive me for not taking a poll, but there are only nine Fridays between now and the midterm elections. Our country has not had a budget passed in the Senate since 2009, forcing a series of continuing resolutions which keep the nation at the brink of a shut down and masks the obscene amounts of money that the President and Congress want to spend. Hundreds of bills passed in the House are not even brought up for a vote in Harry Reid’s Senate.

 

Focusing on the Senate races (Republicans need just six seats to oust the bottleneck, hyper partisan Harry Reid as majority leader), is it worth ten bucks a week (two lattes?) to eliminate Reid’s control and give the Senate responsible leadership again?

With that in mind, this week we look to the open Senate seat in GA. Can you contribute just $10 to Senate candidate David Perdue?


Real Clear Politics has Perdue up 3.8 points on the average, but rates the state as a toss up.


You can contribute to David Perdue here. Good luck and Godspeed, David!

Looks like Nancy is giving some of us a bad name. I would ask Rep. Gowdy, with all due respect, to please consider the mind-numbed among us when including the likes of Mzz Pelosi in our ranks.

Thanks to Independent Journal Review for the heads-up.

Will embed video when a computer is handy. Can’t seem to figure out how to do it from my schmaht fone.

So, Chris Wysocki nominated me for an award and called me “Influential” did he? Does that mean in a good way or a bad way? As in: “Here’s what not to do.” Could be the latter but I’ll assume the former, since Chis is Pretty Fly for a Jersey Guy.

Check it out. They even have a cool award logo:molonlaberattlesnake2

Wait. That’s not it.

Here it is:

most-influential-blogger1

Spiffy.

Now, about those rules. According to whoever came up with this little exercise, there is no actual voting, it’s just a fun way to bring recognition to other blogs and bloggers that are out there.

Here are the rules:

1. Display the award logo on your blog.

2. Link back to the person who nominated you

3. Answer 7 questions decided up by your nominator

4. Nominate ( no limit of nominations ) other bloggers for this award and link back to them.

5. Notify those bloggers of the award requirements.

Heh, I think even I can do a few of those things so, here we go.

Here are Chris’s questions:

1. Why did you start a political blog, and when?

When I saw the politicians and power brokers tank the economy in 2007 to help the democrats win the election, I woke up and started educating myself about the constitution. By the time I’d read Clousen’s The 5000 Year Leap and The Making of America: The Substance and Meaning of the Constitution and Levin’s Liberty and Tyranny, I decided just pissing and moaning about it to a few people in my small circle wasn’t enough. I think my first essay was Sept. 2009.

2. If you could have dinner with any person, living or dead, who would it be?

Jesus.

3. Do you think there is any hope of restoring the United States to a constitutional republic in your lifetime?

In my lifetime? Doubtful. Too many feel entitled to the fruits of others’ labor and too many crony capitalists use the government to pilfer the rest from the citizenry. A great reawakening is coming. I pray it is not too late.

4. If you could choose one state for Conservatives to “take over” and reshape into a vision of America congruent with Constitutional / Conservative principles, what state would you choose and why?

Texas. Because I love and live here.

5. If you could retire anywhere, on or off the planet Earth, where would it be?

On a lake in Texas.

6. What book has influenced your life (other than the Bible or Torah) and describe how?

Politically, the books mentioned in #1. Early in my life I was a huge fan of Asimov.

7. iPhone, Droid, BlackBerry, or Windows Phone?

iPhone

Now, on to the nominations:

Spellchek

American Perspective

Dailey Gator

Obi’s Sister

Troglopundit

Bride of Rove

The Camp of the Saints

Adrienne’s Corner

Reaganite Republican

Here are the questions:

  1. Why did you start a political blog, and when?
  2. If you could have dinner with any person, living or dead, who would it be?
  3. What is the best hope for America to return to founding principles and a constitutional republic?
  4. What book on politics would you most likely recommend to someone just waking up?
  5. What book would you recommend to wake someone up that hasn’t yet?
  6. Will conservatives succeed in reforming the republican party? If possible, how?
  7. Paper or plastic?

There you have it.

Go!
