More signs of the “Return of the Curse”

Oh, and Our Friends, the French

Posted by Ryan on November 2, 2005

They are certainly livin’ it up in their socialist paradise. Maybe the problem is that they simply do not understand “people” over there in Old Europe. If you encourage groups to live in their ghettos for generations, in the same broken neighborhoods, not learning the native language or customs, and expect them not to take things out of proportion in these tense times, then… well… you’re officially French today.

Apparatchiks at Work

Posted by Ryan on November 2, 2005

I found this little plan that the apparatchiks from the Democratic Party were ready to initiate back in the day (keep in mind that last week was the Depression and Jim Crow to many Dems, so let’s not trust their time scheme). This adds a little light on this week’s shinanigans. Jay Rockefeller should be ashamed and disgraced, or at a minimum publicly harangued at least once by Pat Roberts! Don’t Senators get at least haranguing per term, or was that swimming priviliges with perky young campaign workers? I (hiccup) forget…

The Other Minister

Posted by Mike on November 2, 2005

We are looking at the next elected Prime Minister of Great Britain. We just don’t know which one will be visited by Mr. Scrimegeour. I believe Mr. Cameron will win this one though I think I prefer Mr. Davis. Either way it looks as though the Tories will be back soon. And it is just in time as Labour will likely return to their insanity once Tony Blair leaves.

It’s Funny Because It’s True

Ours are just as beautiful on the inside. Theirs are even uglier on the inside.

CNN Shuffle Brings Me to Tears . . . NOT!

Posted by Mike on November 2, 2005

I’m not usually one to curse, at least in the written word, but I won’t be missing this smarmy little prick. It doesn’t really matter though. I think CNN is about as relevant as the Axis of Right. Oh how that is changing though!

More hypocrisy from the Left

Posted by Sal on November 2, 2005

When will the African American community realize that the Democrats are just using them, and that they are more concerned with party loyalty than real civil rights and treating people with respect, no matter what. Two stories today, one from The Washington Times and one on World Net Daily, illustrate this point. The Times article deals with the Virginia Senate race, where Democrats are engaging in ‘spirited debate’ with Republican Senatorial Candidate Lt. Gov. Michael S. Steele. This ‘spirited debate’ includes throwing Oreo cookies at the Lt. Gov., calling him an “Uncle Tom” and depicting him as a black-faced minstrel on a liberal Web log.

World Net Daily points to an editorial in the Milwalkee Journal Sentinal, which speaks of the diversity on the court with Alito replacing Sandra Day O’Connor. The Sentinal writes that “In losing a woman, the court with Alito would feature seven white men, one white woman and a black man, who deserves an asterisk because he arguably does not represent the views of mainstream black America.”

So it’s OK when Democrats racially slur a Black leader – so long as he’s a Republican, and it’s equally OK to slur an African American Supreme Court Justice — just because he’s conservative, he doesn’t count.

The saddest part is, they get away with it time after time.

Liberals Dreaming

Posted by Mike on November 2, 2005

The usual pre-election wishful thinking is spewing out of the AP. Conservatives may not adore Forrester, but that isn’t the point. Conservative disdain for the corrupt Dems in NJ is enough to tolerate voting for someone a little more moderate. Compared to the alternatives from that state, Forrester would be a Godsend.

Up and Running from Jersey!

Posted by Ryan on November 2, 2005

It’s crunch time down here from the Democratic People’s Republic of New Jersey. The latest polls aren’t so good for Forrester, but one can hope. Every major newspaper worth it’s print has endorsed him. Will the grand, non-Turnpike masses come out in support of Doug? Or will they succumb to the subliminal messages from their Little Red Books? Seems like it’ll be closer than they’re saying.

Be Not Afraid

Posted by Mike on November 2, 2005

This piece from the Christian Science Monitor should not trouble us conservatives. The four decisions discussed do not portray a Judge who would contradict the Constitution by affirming Roe.

Alito’s opinion in the 1991 case was pro-life. Alito had no choice in the 2000 case due to on-point Supreme Court precedent. The 1997 decsion merely recognized the authority of the states to legislate on the issue of abortion. The 1995 decision, though not the one I would have made, is consistent with the view that abortion should be illegal except in the cases of rape, incest and to protect the life of the mother (a pro-life position, albeit a more moderate one).

An Appellate Court judge with no wiggle room cannot contradict the Supreme Court. This tells me that Judge Alito appreciates the proper role of a judge. As a pro-lifer, I would be excited with another Justice who recognizes state authority over this issue. That would be a sign of Roe’s demise.

Message Sent

Posted by Mike on November 2, 2005

Some partisans who think elections are nothing but sport mock the idea of sending a message. But since conservatives sent their message to his son in the Republican primary, Senator DeWine seems to be back on board and doing his job. (Warning, AP) Winning is important but is the means to the end not the end itself.

A long way to go

Posted by Sal on November 2, 2005

Colorado voters yesterday approved a measure that would force citizens to give up their state tax refunds 53%-47%. While we recognize the right of the people to make a decision in a free election such as this, it shows that there is still much debate and education of our conservative ideas and principles required.

This measure will undoubtedly give the Colorado state legislature more money to spend, and take the money out of the economy where it could really do some good. Lower tax rates bolster the economy, which thereby increase government revenues. It’s worked every time it’s tried.

We’ve made much progress in the debate over the past several years, but this decision shows we still have a long way to go.
