    The mother of a 10-year-old boy in North Carolina is outraged that her son was recently punished for calling his fifth grade teacher "ma’am.” Wilson noticed her son, Tamarion, was not himself when she picked him up from the bus stop earlier this week. “I asked him what was wrong, and he told me he got in trouble for saying 'ma’am' to a teacher. I was confused,” Inquiring further, Wilson asked her son to give more detail about the incident. That’s when the fifth-grader at North East Carolina Preparatory School in Tarboro, North Carolina, pulled out a piece of lined...

    Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., told MSNBC’s Al Sharpton Wednesday night she was “infuriated” during Sen. Rand Paul’s questioning of Sec. Hillary Clinton and even left the hearing room. “When I heard him say those words, I walked out of the hearing room, and listened to him from behind the stage, because I was so infuriated at what that man said,” Ms Boxer said. Mr Paul said it was “inexcusable” for the State Department to ignore the Benghazi cables. “Had I been president at the time, and I found that you did not read the cables from Benghazi, you did not...

    Jim Hill
    The letter is from a National Guard aviator and Captain for Alaska Airlines named Jim Hill. I wonder what he would have said if he were really angry. Long fly Alaska !!!!! Babs: You were so right on when you scolded the general on TV for using the term, “ma’am,” instead of “Senator”. After all, in the military, “ma’am” is a term of respect when addressing a female of superior rank or position. The general was totally wrong. You are not a person of superior rank or position. You are a member of one of the world’s most corrupt organizations,...
  • Boxer's Opponents Capitalize On 'Ma'm' Exchange

    Boxer's Opponents Capitalize On 'Ma'm' Exchange By KEVIN FREKING WASHINGTON – The widely played video clip of U.S. Sen. Barbara Boxer reprimanding a general for calling her "ma'am" is the gift that keeps on giving for the two Republicans hoping to challenge her next year. Republicans Carly Fiorina and Chuck DeVore are trying to capitalize on the exchange by making it a key ingredient of their fundraising efforts and attempts to recruit grassroots support. Both campaigns say the video revs up a GOP base that already has long-standing animosity toward Boxer, among the most liberal members of the Senate. Whether...

    While doing research to verify various comments Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA) made during her San Jose book signing/fee-based “non-townhall” meeting, I came across two images of the same person— which both surprised and troubled me. If I didn’t tell you who this person was, you would have never put it together at first glance. The images below are a portrayal of Senator Barbara Boxer. The left image is from her 2004 Senate campaign and the right image shows today’s campaign. Click on the image to see a larger version. Click for enlarged image

    “Gawd, I really looked like a b**ch!” exclaimed Mrs. Barbara Boxer, a California politician who occupies a political office in Washington, D.C., as she watched a replay of her disrespectful interruption of Brig. Gen. Michael Walsh, of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, during his testimony on the Hurricane Katrina restoration process. The General--who has served his country admirably, risked his life and limb, and devoted his life to preserve the lady’s freedom to disrespect him and others in uniform who are trained to refer to ladies as “Ma’am” and gentlemen as “Sir”--was rudely “dressed down” as they say in...

    Senator Barbara Boxer, D-Calif.,demanded Brigadier General Michael Walsh to call her "Senator" instead of "ma'am". Senator James Inhofe, R-Ok, on the other hand, was addressed as "sir" by General Peter Pace on January 16, 2007. Unlike Ms. Boxer, Mr. Inhofe did not lecture the General over the issue of calling him "sir".

    Ok, this is really quite simple. Everyone by now has heard about Senator Barbara Boxer correcting a General by asking him to stop referring to her as "Ma'am" but rather as "Senator Boxer". So, in the spirit of this correction, we have decided to make a correction to her title as well. Rather, to her name. The person who creates the best name to follow "Senator..." will win an Americans for Limited Government grab bag. Leave your "Address me as Senator _________ " on NetRight Nation here:

    Lots in the news this month. But are we really receiving news or are we receiving conjecture disguised as news? As a retired journalist, I can recall the days when, under strict orders, we could only write facts for newspapers. Oh, of course there were the editorial pages and the famous columnists. It was on these pages that opinion lived and thrived. Even gossip was permitted but generally only by a Hollywood reporter or what was called a gossip columnist --- Louella Parsons, Hedda Hopper, and Walter Winchell come to mind. Stray from the editorial pages and any reporter or...

September 23 2002 at 10:16AM Bagram Air Base, Afghanistan - US troops searching women in Afghanistan have found weapons and other items concealed under traditional head-to-toe garments known as burqas, a US military spokesperson said on Monday. Lieutenant Colonel Carla Sylvester said searches of women had uncovered large quantities of weapons, equipment and documents suspected to have been concealed on behalf of al-Qaeda terrorists. Two separate raids on Sunday yielded an array of items, some of them concealed under burqas. "We have seen several incidents of this kind of thing where...
