I was going to write this as an introduction and an explanation of how I went from liberal democrat to conservtive unrepresented. No matter how I tried to tell the story it ended up being long winded and boring so, I decided to keep it short and sweet. It all boils down to learning to take responsibility for myself.

I was always told that I would become conservative when I got some money. Well, I have never had money. I still don’t have money. I was also told that I would eventually grow up. That’s a very condescending thing to tell someone that is 24 and educated. The truth is, I bore it all out by logic. A phrase I had been spouting all through the Bush administration finally caught up to me. “No people are conquered by force.” I still believe that. They can be conquered by bribery.

It is not enough if the business remains neutral. As Bret Jacobson says, “Translation: that’s a nice business you have there, it would be a shame if something happened to it.”
Supporting Gov.Walker over Union

It seems even more sinister when the business is paying to harassed. They are being taxed to pay the wages of the public union members. In turn, a part of those wages are taken in union dues, which then allow the union to Read the rest of this entry »

The Bungler in Chief

It would be almost comical to watch Pres. Barack Hussein Obama’s decisive indecision if it weren’t for the fact that he is President Barack Hussein Obama. Perhaps an argument could be made that Obama was a good senator, or even an exceptional community organizer. Perhaps some may consider his skills in reaching consensus and voting on important issues laudable. The fly in the ointment is that these are not the skills we need in a leader of the free world.

The current firestorm in the Middle East may prove to be Mr. Obama’s foreign-policy downfall. We have heard it said in many places how he left the Iranian protesters to their own devices, chooses to do nothing in Syria, however, chooses to use military force in Libya. As pointed out by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the situations Read the rest of this entry »
