    Michael Bloomberg’s Gun Control Ads


    New York Mayor Bloomberg seems to think his 27 billion dollar fortune somehow qualifies him to speak on behalf of the oppressed masses in regard to gun rights and 2nd amendment constitutional rights. Not.

    Obama’s POTUS SOTU | Rubio’s Sacred Cow

    Some pundits described Obama’s State of the Union address tonight as “conciliatory.” I’m not sure I understand the sentiment behind the perspective. I would have characterized the President’s remarks, in the wake of the election, almost as cliché, or maybe non-descript, and maybe more aptly as an introduction to Marco Rubio.

    Yes! Virginia, I AM A Journalist!

    I remember more than eight years ago when I began discovering the Internet and all it’s potential. There was no such thing as a “blogger” back in those days.

In short, he no longer is the working man’s president – just a racist fascist. I am conservative, and I truly had hoped for better, but cannot accept that kind of garbage as my president.
