Republican Party

Over the past eleven months, a recurring theme of mine has been to ruminate on the perils of big government and what we can do to combat the over reaching arm of federal encroachments on our liberty and freedom. Since some of you are new to the blog, and since I transferred quite a few of those essays from the old site yesterday, I thought I would take the opportunity to point you to the “Prime” tab which will hold links to those essays for your reference.

As an introduction, in reverse order of appearance, here are ten essays on

The Perils of Big Government

Note also that within the “Prime” tab are what I consider to be some of the best writing by other bloggers I’ve run across in my travels. I don’t always have time or think of bookmarking a post so the list is a bit short for now. Most of my time online lately is focused on defeating the Godzilla of a government we’ve been growing, so if your wondrous work is absent, please take no offense at the omission, it may be that I simply haven’t read that particular work or wasn’t in a situation where I was able to make a note. Either way, the fault I’m sure, lies with me.

In addition to the random readings titled “From Other Blogs,” my friends at The Resistance have been very busy assembling valuable information for us to use and peruse. Those links will be posted on “Prime” also as they come available. I will try to make a note of when I make an addition to the “Prime” tab here on the front page but do check out that page from time to time as I may have forgotten to make note. They don’t call me “Mind-Numbed” for nothing.

The new TBF poll is up in the right sidebar. RightKlik has the usual outstanding roundup of candidates for our consideration and has stepped up promotion of the idea a couple of notches with the help of a um, well, a  colorful day!

Lilac Sunday: My email to Rush Limbaugh

I’m all for it. Let’s contact these guys and drum up some more grass roots support for the program.

You go, Lilac Sunday. Now I’ve got another addition to the blogroll to make, which really isn’t such a bad thing, after all.

Van Irion wins TBF poll!

Woo Hoo! My nominee won!

Not to gloat or anything. The other candidates are all very deserving, I’m sure. It’s just that, as Ruby Slippers says:

Anyone willing to clean the manure out of the Capitol and bring a lawsuit against ObamaCare has my support.

Right-on Ruby, Right-on!

As usual, RightKlik has an excellent article explaining Mr. Irion’s political positions and a great video of Van on Glenn Beck.

You know, now that I look, I see that I have yet to add RightKlik to my blogroll. How in the world could I let that slip by? Sorry about that omission RK, I’ll fix that error shortly. It will make a future installment of my Robo-Love Experiment in linking a bit more difficult fun and interesting, but I’m not one to back away from a challenge. Now let’s see, how to work “RightKlik” into a story line… Hmmmm.

Check you guys later. I’m off to make a donation and do a little blogrolling.


Worth watching again, and again.

We were speaking of lawsuits against ObamaCare, weren’t we?

Well, I was.

Right about the time I had a good drunken rant going I get news of  Van Irion, a Constitutionalist from Tennessee who has actually begun work on a Class Action Lawsuit against ObamaCare.

From the FAQ:

Q. What is the goal of the lawsuit?

A. The goal is to reverse the incorrect interpretation by the Supreme Court of the Commerce clause that allows Congress to regulate essentially every American enterprise. This will restore the 10th Amendment and restrain Congress. Without reversing this precedent, Congress will continue to believe they have the right to regulate our daily lives and will continue to produce onerous bills that do so.

I’ve signed on and do encourage every person of sanity to do the same. I might even encourage some of you insane types to sign up also. Obama’s version of your “treatment” might not be what you wish it to be.

Van Irion is running for the Republican Primary in Tennessee’s 3rd District. The vote is scheduled for August 5th.

I like what I just saw so I’m sharing it with you. Wish I was in Tennessee to vote for him. If you know someone who should see this, please pass it on.

Both of you who read this blog on a regular basis Anna Little for Congress sign Texas 3know that I’m a big Little fan. Jersey girl is alright with this robotic writer, so I’m extremely pleased to announce that this weeks Ten Buck Fridays vote has been tallied and Anna Little has emerged victorious.

Now head over to Anna’s site and donate what you feel you can afford. Anna is facing a tough incumbent in Frank Pallone and her campaign can use every dollar.

RightKlik has a nice post detailing the Anna Little victory and give suggestions on another worthy candidate if you are feeling extra generous.

Super-Blogger, Nice Deb has picked up the TBF torch and is running with us, as is StopTheACLU, Maggie’s Notebook, WorldDailyNews, Hack Wilson, The Conservative Lady Polemicon and many many others.

I’m swamped with work today so, this is short and sweet. Go give Anna Little some money!


Today, in the robot’s mail box I found the latest installment of

The Peter Morrison Report

Summary of this week’s report:

Conservative stalwart Leo Berman has officially declared that he’s
seeking the office of Speaker of the House, currently held by Joe
Straus. Straus is a RINO who supports abortion and gambling,
campaigns for liberal Democrats, and uses his power to block
important conservative legislation. Replacing Straus with Rep.
Berman would be a huge victory for conservative Texans, and we need
to support Leo Berman in his bid for the Speaker’s job.

Take action:

Please fax the Republican members of the Texas House and urge them
to vote for Leo Berman for Speaker of the House.

Also, please call, write or fax the member of the Texas House from
your district and urge them to vote for Leo Berman for Speaker of
the House. If you need to look up their contact information, you
can do so here:

Unlike Congressmen, it’s possible to actually get your state
representative on the phone. This is by far the most important
step to take, as your rep will be naturally cautious to oppose the
incumbent speaker because of his power to determine the fate of
committee assignments and legislation. Only constituent pressure
will help them muster the courage to act.

Look at this headline from the AP:

Obama says GOP making life harder for the jobless


The F*^k-stick in chief expects me to believe that? I nearly punched out my monitor. My hands are shaking so hard right now I can barely hunt and peck through this sentence and the coffee spilled into the keyboard isn’t helping.

Here are some quotes from the article in question:

President Barack Obama on Saturday pinned blame on Republicans for making life harder for the unemployed and for those who could lose their jobs without new federal intervention. He did so even as he sought to distance himself from the “dreary and familiar politics” of Washington.


His main concern was the rejection of a bill in the Senate that would have provided more money for the long-term unemployed, aid for strapped state governments and the renewal of popular tax breaks for businesses and individuals.

“If this obstruction continues, unemployed Americans will see their benefits stop,” Obama said. “Teachers and firefighters will lose their jobs. Families will pay more for their first home. All we ask for is a simple up or down vote. That’s what the American people deserve.”

Tax breaks? I’d doubt it. What you call a tax break I venture more closely resembles a broken bone.

I’ll tell you what the American people deserve, is a congress and a president who will get their collective boot off of the neck of the private sector and let us go back to work. We aren’t peasants to be bantered to and we certainly aren’t pheasants in need of bird seed. We are a people capable of much more than your petty little mind will ever comprehend mister, and I can tell you this with the utmost sincerity, if it comes down to it, we will be very unpleasant peasants to deal with.

Where are my meds. Freaking moron.

There was a convergence of sorts for me today. Whilst twittering away for #FF (Follow Fridays) I noticed on of my new tweeps, Right Klik was touting a new idea called Ten Buck Fridays which was actually the brain child of Conscientiously Conservative who writes:

Ten Buck Fridays started today for me. I donated $10 to Teresa Collett’s campaign for 4th Congressional District in Minnesota. Many of us get paid on Fridays… if we bring a sack lunch a couple of times a week to work, right there is an extra tenner. What if conservatives donated $10 each and every week up through November to viable candidates and/or PAC’s that are promoting a conservative agenda? If you can’t afford every week, what about twice a month? Or once a month? Conservatives need to put their money where their mouth is. Commit to Ten Buck Fridays… it WILL make a difference come November!

What a great idea! Right Klik modified the idea a bit (I think) by adding a nomination factor, which also has some merit. The main point being that it’s only ten bucks a week or two for a good cause. For THE greatest cause of our lives, if you ask me, which you didn’t but hey, I’m doing the typing here. You’ll get your turn in the comment section. Settle down over there.

The convergence happened when I got my subscription email from Bob Belvedere’s site (You do subscribe to TCOTS don’t you?) announcing that he,  Stacy McCain and a host of other bloggers are jumping on a RINO Killer’s Grassroots Money Bomb. Christina O’Donnell’s supporters are asking for some help over there, so I’ll be donating to that campaign shortly.

The point is, however you chose to participate, whatever level of financial assistance you can afford, now is the time to commit. We can not afford to slack now. We must put our money where our mouths are and support conservative candidates. What we cannot afford to do is allow the Republican machine to select those RINO’s as our only choices. As far as I am concerned, a RINO is no more use to us than a Progressive Democrat if we expect to affect real change in Washington.

I can’t remember where I saw it or heard it but this is the truth: You can’t change government without changing the people in government.

Get involved. Campaigns cost money.

Oh, and it doesn’t hurt that Christina O’Donnell is kid-of hot. But then, conservative wimmin will always have the edge with this robo-love machine.

UPDATE: Right Klik offers another idea in the comments:

Anyone who likes the “Ten Buck Fridays” idea, please consider labeling your online donation with “Ten Buck Fridays” in one of the optional fields.

Just full of ideas, this Right Klik.

Hey, have you ever cleaned an oil spill? Just wonderin’ cause, you know, someone we’re both acquainted with desperately needs a clue.

Wow. Apparently, there is at least one conservative in California. Who new?

Bravo Congressman. Bravo. Thank you for saying what our President should have.
H/T Kurt.

I can’t believe my tin-clad ears. When I hear those who I once considered hardened republicans come out softening the base with statements that mean in effect “it’s a lost cause”, my stomach churns.

I heard Fred Thompson on Hannity yesterday in effect surrendering the Kagan nomination as a given, my radio caught a tongue lashing.

Poor radio. It’s not your fault.

It’s the fault of wishy washy conservatives who are scared to pick a fight. What they don’t understand is that we are still pissed about Health Care, bailouts, take-overs and our loss of freedoms and money, in effect EVERYTHING this regime is doing and wishes to do. I have one word for you republicans and conservatives.


Oppose everything Obama, Pelosi and Reid want to do. At the very least make it harder to get these things accomplished. That is what we expect you to do. If you bend over and take it, we are paying attention and you will be ousted with the rest of the mongrels when the time comes.

That’s all for now, If I go on, this blog will lose its PG-13 rating.

UPDATE: Wyblog has a fine example of why my head is about to assplode.

UPDATE II: I wrote earlier that the wishy washy conservatives are scared to pick a fight. I was wrong. They aren’t scared to pick a fight. What I should have written is they are afraid to fight at all, because we are in a fight already and although we didn’t start it, we should damn well be willing to finish it or to go down swinging.

Here is my point. The progressives have infiltrated the ranks of all of the parties and should be ousted from every nook and cranny of government, if that means that all we can do for now is to not allow another fox in the hen house, then that is what I expect them to do! And if, in the mean time, you show yourself to be a RINO, you just put a target on your back as well.

There, hopefully I made it through that without too many expletives.

Now I’m off to draw Mohammed. Got to get ready for Thursday.
