    Jill Stanek Arrested, Republicans Attacked

    It seems like Republicans have to spend more time defending themselves from misleading and unwarranted attacks from the right than they do from the left anymore. The latest attack in this troubling trend comes from Right Wing News (dot) Com, which posted a short commentary on the arrest of several pro life demonstrators, including Jill Stanek.  The group was arrested earlier today (March 25th) and charged with charged with violating D.C. Code 22-1307. The story on RWN posted part of this story from Life Site News and included a link to the whole article, and included the following observations about the story.

  • The Birther Worm Has Turned

    The Birther Worm Has Turned

    Let me start by making this perfectly clear. If you are a person who believes that President Obama is not a Natural Born United States Citizen, yet you are supporting Ted Cruz in his aspirations to become President, you are a fraud. I know, it's not nice to lay it out there like that, but I don't care about nice. I care about right and wrong, and the facts of the matter are what they are. To be clear, I am not a "Birther" but I do not believe that President Obama is a natural born United States citizen, nor do I believe that Ted Cruz is either. This is not a off handed, uneducated position either. I have read the thoughts of those who believe otherwise, but I disagree. My opinions are based in a Senate Resolution that we have that speaks to the matter in question.

  • SEC; 2014 And Still Overrated

    SEC; 2014 And Still Overrated

    Author Administrator

    We've heard it time and again. Find anyone who follows college football or listens to sports talk radio and ask them which conference is the best conference in College Football. Without a doubt, they will say "SEC". And if they don't? They will. much like myself, be branded a hater. Now to be clear, I am not going to lecture you about which conference is the best. While I personally would say the PAC 12 this year is the best, I'm not going to try to convince you of that. What I am going to do is absolutely destroy the logic behind the knee-jerk "SEC" answer, but this time with facts and numbers. The bottom line? The South Eastern Conference is not nearly as good as you think they are.

  • Oh, Those Magical Royals

    Author Administrator

    It's that time of year again. Yes, the time where words like "pitching" and "hitting" get replaced with phrases like "they've got that magic" and "fairy dust". Last night at as I was watching the Royals cash in on that "magic" and finish off their sweep of the Angels I saw a sign in the stands that read "We have always believed. Now everyone else does." Cute sign. Realistic? No. After all, it was just a month ago that Royals Manager Ned Yost ripped into the Royals fans for not showing up to games. In fact, the Royals ranked 25th in the league in attendance this year. So no, you haven't always believed, Royals fans, and I don't believe now either. Magic and fairies can be fun. This is baseball.

  • How Donald Sterling Will Beat The NBA

    Author Administrator

    First off, to be clear I am not a lawyer. I am an over the road truck driver. While this may make you want to be quick to dismiss my observations here, hear me out first. If at the end of the article you still want to dismiss me, feel free. If, however, this article leaves you thinking that I make some valid points, come back and read this first paragraph again. A truck driver, not a lawyer, came up with this. Donald Sterling will be represented by lawyers, not truckers. I'm willing to bet that they can do at least as good a job making a case for him as I am doing right here, and I would even go so far as to suggest that they might do better. Hard to imagine, I know, but it is possible.

Is Ted Cruz a Natural Born Citizen?

The Birther Worm Has Turned

Let me start by making this perfectly clear. If you are a person who believes that President Obama is not a Natural Born United States Citizen, yet you are supporting Ted Cruz in his aspirations to become President, you are a fraud.

JFK Conspiracy Theories

Written by Steve Parry on Saturday, 23 November 2013. Posted in Politics Hits 1857

Sorry, no real debunk here.

JFK Conspiracy Theories

Two conspiracy theorists die and go to heaven. St. Peter tells them that Heaven is a place of all knowledge, so they can each ask him one question and he will reveal the answer to them. The first one says "Who killed John F. Kennedy?" St. Peter says "Lee Harvey Oswald." The other says "Who was he working with?" St. Peter says "He acted alone." The two of them look at each other and say "Wow! The coverup is bigger than we thought!" But seriously, what keeps this stuff going? Some would say the evidence. Other would say mental illness. I myself am unsure, and I have a hard time really focusing on this one as I didn't live through it. This article is pretty much a starting point for me and a note to self. Steve, debunk this one.

Don't Drink The Tea

Written by Steve Parry on Tuesday, 06 August 2013. Posted in Politics Hits 3793

While they try to take over a party, they put a nation in peril.

Don't Drink The Tea

Scott Brown, Chris Christie, Marco Rubio, and Rick Snyder. What do these guys have in common? If you are a tea party member, then you already know the answer. Rick Snyder accepted the Medicare expansion for his state. Marco Rubio tried to tackle immigration reform. Scott Brown... who am I kidding? Like they need a reason? Heck, Chris Christie hugged Obama, let's throw him under the Tea Party Express. These are all candidates once endorsed by the Tea Party who have found themselves on the outs with the same group.  Now, with another midterm election looming around the corner, it appears Mitch McConnell has made the Tea Party Hit List as well. But before you guys get too far into this, would you kindly allow me to present you with some simple logic?

Abortion: Leopards Vs Hyenas

Written by Steve Parry on Saturday, 27 April 2013. Posted in Politics Hits 33853

It's a fine line, and sometimes we forget about the Baboons.

One of the major drawbacks of being a blogger who has opinions that don't always fit the mainstream of either political party is that, after awhile, the party faithful tend to tune you out. Truth be told, I tend to get more responses from the left than from the right when I post my articles to facebook. On the issue of abortion, I am a guy who was once in the pro life political camp until my views evolved (politically, not personally) to pro choice. Yet I have long believed, ever since I knew there even was such an issue, that we should all be able to find some common ground on a child that has been born alive. That was, of course, before I knew about a State Senator from Illinois named Barack Obama and a doctor from Pennsylvania named Kermit Gosnell.

The Gay Marriage Equality Lie

Written by Steve Parry on Saturday, 30 March 2013. Posted in Politics Hits 25350

If you think it is about equality, than you are sadly mistaken.

I want to start this off by saying that conceptually I am a guy who supports gay marriage. If you called my house for a polling agency and asked if I thought that people of the same sex should have the right to marry each other, I would answer in the affirmative. If you put it on the ballot in my State, however, I would vote against it. Both of these things are evolutions in my stance on gay marriage, but unlike President Obama, I can (and will, further down) explain the evolution of my stance. I'm not trying to get elected, and I don't care if you like me or not. I would not vote for gay marriage because I am sick and tired of the gay community lying to me and treating me as if I am stupid. There is no better evidence of this strategy than the latest "=" sign you see popping up on facebook.

'American Sniper' Chris Kyle Shot Dead

Written by Steve Parry on Sunday, 03 February 2013. Posted in News, Politics Hits 45285

We can't handle the truth.

'American Sniper' Chris Kyle Shot Dead

Chris Kyle was a Navy SeAL and an American hero. He was known as America's deadliest sniper. His 150 plus kills landed him 2 Silver Starts and 5 Bronze Medals. His longest confirmed kill was a shot that traveled 2,100 yards to it's target, an insurgent holding a rocket launcher. Chris returned home to (reportedly, less I be sued by the former wrestler turned complete fruitcake) punch out Jim Janos who is better known as Jesse Ventura. If he hadn't already been a hero, he would have become one in my book at that time. He also wrote his autobiography which quickly became a bestseller, and spent a lot of his time trying to help troops who had returned from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan with PTSD and other mental health issues. Yesterday, Chris Kyle was shot dead by one of those men.

President Obama Weighs In On Football

on Thursday, 31 January 2013. Posted in Say What?, Politics Hits 4326

Is President Obama too soft?

President Obama Weighs In On Football

Finally, someone is lashing out at President Obama for his comments on football. The Boston Globe today lit into the President, calling his recent musings "passive" and accusing him of "punting the football." In short, Mr. President, football is a man's sport. There is no room for girls in this game, and sissy little side-step answers will not be tolerated. If you want to talk about retired ballerina's getting arthritis, then you can come with lame answers like you gave to the New Republic. But if you want to talk about football, you need to man up and sound off like you have a pair. Now I'm sure some of you dames out there want to lash out at me for such a sexist viewpoint, but we are talking about football after all, and girls don't matter in football so who cares what you think? Let's get to what Obama thinks.

How our Constitution killed Jovan Belcher

on Tuesday, 04 December 2012. Posted in Media Bias, Politics Hits 9936

Some rights we just can't seem to handle.

How our Constitution killed Jovan Belcher

Day in and day out, we here in America seem to be working hard to prove that there are some freedoms that bring with them a higher level of responsibility than we are able to handle. Despite our best efforts, we seem to be unable to control our animal instinct, and nothing proves this better than the incident last week that left a promising young NFL talent and the mother of his child dead. How many people have to die before we wake up? How much blood must be shed before people step up and demand that we do the right thing and for once and for all amend our Constitution in such a way that crimes like this will be prevented. Can we say Jovan Belcher and Kasandra Perkins will be the last to die at the hands of our antiquated laws?

The Real Story In Libya

on Wednesday, 21 November 2012. Posted in Politics Hits 965

Yes, it is worse than you think.

The Real Story In Libya

My fellow Conservatives often tend to complain that the left leaning media isn't telling the full story, and nowhere are their claims more amplified right now than in the Benghazi debacle in Libya. They point out that the media by and large ignored this story, and now they focus merely on the sex scandal surrounding David Petraeus. While I usually feel that these complaints are a bit overstated, this whole scenario in Libya has got me scratching my head, but not just because of the media coverage. I'm beginning to wonder if I am the only one that saw what just happened.

It's Back! The Return Of The War on Women

on Thursday, 25 October 2012. Posted in Politics Hits 3842

Richard Mourdock fires up left with controversial rape comment.

It's Back! The Return Of The War on Women

It can't be a great political issue if it doesn't have a great name, and few modern issues have a better name than WOW (War On Women). Why, it would almost seem a little too good to be true, wouldn't it? If I didn't know any better, I would think that the whole thing had been made up in a left wing spin room, but I digress. This is no time to get off on rabbit trails about how a name was concocted. There is genuine phony outrage out there, and something needs to be done. First off, we need to know what Mourdock said.

Can Someone Just Fix This Stupid Truck?

on Friday, 24 August 2012. Posted in News, Politics Hits 7020

Trying to get my Suburban back on the road.

Can Someone Just Fix This Stupid Truck?

Those of you who know me personally know that awhile back I bought a 1997 Suburban. It had a few problems, but I got a hell of a deal on it and I figured I could get them fixed and still come in under the Blue Book on it. The biggest problem seemed to be the transmission, so I took it in to get it checked out. The shop calls me back after they look at it and tells me he flushed the transmission and it seems to be doing fine now. $80 and it's fixed? Too good to be true, right? You guessed it. A week later she's back at the shop.

Why Do You People Keep Falling For This?

on Sunday, 12 August 2012. Posted in Media Bias, Politics Hits 1157

Remember Cindy... what's her name?

Why Do You People Keep Falling For This?

Meet Joe Soptic. He's the latest in the long line of people that make the tragic mistake of thinking that the Democrats care. Trust me, they don't. So Joe is now the latest victim of the Democrats who gets suckered into exploiting the memory of a dead relative for the best interest of the party. I know, it seems like the thing to do at the time. The media attention and all of the politicians fawning over you makes it seem as if they are genuinely concerned. They will give you well wishes and follow you around... until election day, that is. They don't care about your loved one. They don't want to make it better for you. They just want the emotion of your story behind their campaign. Speaking of which, has anyone seen Cindy Sheehan?

The Real War On Women & Minorities

on Friday, 01 June 2012. Posted in Politics Hits 556

Can a leopard change his spots?

The Real War On Women & Minorities

Many times the answer to some of the political questions that face us is somewhere right in the middle of the left and the right. The left will often make absurd claims like "Republicans want dirty air and water" and the right will respond with "Democrats want people to get abortions." While there may be a handful of extremists who for whatever reason want dirty air or water, nobody is going to believe a statement as idiotic as that. Furthermore, most Democrats who support abortion rights have a much more moderate position on the issue like I do myself. While abortion is objectionable and should be used only as a last resort, it is a medical decision that a woman must make for herself, and her decision should not be legislated by the Government. So what of this war on women we have been hearing about? Where does the truth lie on this issue?
