For several days now I’ve contemplated the possibility of changing the name of this blog. The Race for the White House seems to have run its course and, my sprinter seems to have been waylaid somewhere along the course. Politics is not a game for the innocent or the… Read full post »
Of course, when Mitt Romney wins the election next week, there will be much weeping and gnashing of teeth. The Democrats will blame Hurricane Sandy for the Obama loss. (Somehow, once the deed is done, campaign operatives will forget that Obama has been steadily losing groun… Read full post »
Now that fall has officially arrived here in the sultry South, I like to spend mornings out on the porch watching frantic squirrels about the business of burying acorns. These days they are busy from first light each morning digging holes and hiding what is destined… Read full post »
A few weeks back there was something of a brouhaha boiling over in the news about polling firms and their proclivity to weight their polling data to favor democrats. Serious pollsters including Rasmussen, Gallup and individuals including Pat Caddell, Doug Schoen and Dick Morris… Read full post »
The curiosity this morning is about to do me in.
I understand Donald Trump is about to break a “blockbuster” story on Barack Obama which will significantly impact upon the election. The announcement is scheduled to come at noon eastern time on Twitter. I’m mo/… Read full post »
We might have seen the writing on the wall during the 2008 election. Do you remember when uniformed members of the New Black Panther Party carrying clubs stood threateningly outside a Pennsylvania polling place and tried to intimidate “crackers?” (Yes. This was the same eve… Read full post »
I often wonder how our children can grow up with any moral compass at all these days.
On one hand, we tell them that they are part of the greatest nation on earth. We try to school them in patriotism. We hope to raise a child who could be the… Read full post »
I never thought I’d be saying this, but I wish Hillary Clinton would have won the last election. Not just because I loathe Barack Obama, which I do, but because she is twice the man he is and three times more Presidential.
Over the weekend the… Read full post »
Okay. It wasn’t quite the drubbing in Denver from last week, but once again in last night’s debate, the Democrat defeated himself roundly. The Romney Ryan juggernaut continues.
Last night when the vice presidential candidates took the stage I was a little apprehensive.… Read full post »
Like Mitt Romney, I raised sons. And, like Mitt Romney, I’ve been the target of many misinformation campaigns designed to keep me unaware of various and sundry activities in which my sons participated which ran contrary to their upbringing. I suppose I should be used to what I call… Read full post »
The election might be just right around the corner, but it’s not too late to impeach Barack Obama.
I’m sure the American voters are already fed up with this administration’s shifty, Chicago-style politics. I’m not the only one who sees a thousand red flags… Read full post »
We learned some things in Wednesday night’s Presidential debate. Not only did we learn that the President was totally unprepared for what happens when he steps out of the protective environment of a fawning media and carefully chosen staffers, but we also learned that he d… Read full post »
In the old days when I was very much involved in local politics – which is to say I butted in where I wasn’t wanted and pitched fits until somebody paid attention – I was frequently told that I was unpopular among the supporters of the elected officials I opposed. My… Read full post »
If you hang out on liberal websites and attempt, as I do, to communicate with the left-leaning fragment of Americans, you get the idea right away that they don’t want church and state to get all intertwangled. They don’t want me talking about my faith or my… Read full post »
Allow me to be the first to tell you I don’t have the answers for this. I’m honestly looking for help in sorting this thorny little issue out.
I can tell you in no uncertain terms that I’ll be glad when this election is over. It’s been dirty and it’s been long. It’s bound to get worse before it gets better, I’m sure and I, for one, don’t imagine that it will be over on November 6th… Read full post »
I’m honestly NOT one of those grandmothers who walked six miles to school, uphill both ways. I am a grandmother who grew up in Montana, though, and as such I do have some rugged winter stories to tell. In my part of the woods, there are just three seasons.… Read full post »
My granny used to comment that some people have just enough information to make them dangerous. Quite often that particular verity makes me among the most dangerous women on the planet. Take polling data, for example.
I know that pollsters have to start somewhere when they… Read full post »
It’s one thing to construct a house of cards but it’s quite another to move into one.
In the case of Barack Obama, his house of cards – his careful construction which features a magnificent set of lies pretending that he is an able leader with… Read full post »
Over the weekend liberal media bastion Mother Jones splashed the news with a video in which Republican Presidential Nominee Mitt Romney asserts that 47% of people in the nation are dependent upon government for all or part of their incomes and are, therefore, dependent upon and beholde… Read full post »
Love is blind. It’s also often deaf, dumb and just plan stupid. Take, for example, the love our liberal friends have for the man who temporarily resides at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
Even in the wake of the murder of four of our diplomats… Read full post »
In the wake of last night’s murder of the United States Ambassador to Libya and three of his staffers, I’m wondering just how tall the shadow cast by the US in the Muslim world really is.
President Barack Obama said this about that:
I remember using this old tactic to get my way as a child. “But Mom, EVERYBODY else is going to (the dance, the mall, the movies, the field trip to Central America.)” Somehow, peer pressure can be brought to bear on just about everybody – even reluctant mothers… Read full post »
I expected to hear lots of lies from the floor of the Democrat National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina this week and I wasn’t disappointed. Well, I was a little. I mean, with a machine as big as the Obama re-election campaign, you’d think they could have come… Read full post »
An apple a day may keep the doctor away, but it doesn’t do much for old blisters like me, particularly if that Apple is a telephone.
My teen-aged granddaughters are all aflutter about the scheduled unveiling of Apple’s new iPhone 5, scheduled for next week.… Read full post »
