  • Voter beware - there are several McCains hiding behind this recent vote

    Does anyone believe that all 46 votes on healthcare truly want repeal? Ponder this, what if the game plan is to put 3 or 4 out to pasture to cover for others. Basically a repeat of voting 60 times to repeal knowing it would never happen. If this isn't the case and 46 are hell bent to follow through, why aren't all 46 publicly pressuring the 3 or 4 holdouts? Doesn't make sense not to fight assuming that's what you REALLY want. I contend there are several McCains and they assume that they can hold their seats long enough to...

    Sorry for the vanity, but I wanted to get this out there in its own thread rather than go through and post it as a response on all of the threads on this subject. A number of media outlets have gone to great lengths today to point out that the e-mails in question that led to yesterday's announcement "weren't sent to or from Hillary Clinton." I've seen variations of this theme from many of these reports. It's important to note that this particular point is irrelevant, and the fact that there is so much focus on it tells me that...
  • Ted Cruz Dies Politically With "New York Values" Rants. (Vanity)

    04/08/2016 7:24:26 AM PDT · by JLAGRAYFOX · 142 replies
    Ted Cruz has shot himself in the foot big time with his ill thought out ranting about hating New Yorkers. It's the same kind of rant that someone would make about "Red Necks" in any southern state, ill advised and unacceptable. The Cruz verbage is proof that Cruz will do or say anything true or untrue to gain power and control. He is really not-too-bright-in-th brain-department. He is far from Presidential material!!! For goodness sake....the fool, Ted Cruz, has no clue as to how he is being used by the GOP Establishment for "their" purposes, not his. Does anyone really...
  • Exposing Cruz on Immigration [arthur march vanity]

    03/29/2016 7:47:12 AM PDT · by Arthur Wildfire! March · 21 replies
    A brilliant female author pointed out that no issue is more urgent right now than immigration. In a word: checkmate. It affects voter fraud, voter disenfranchizement, free speech, terrorism, fiscal responsibility, and ultimately even the federal judiciary. And to expose Cruz on this issue I must first deconstruct the Big Lie he's been hiding behind. How many times have you heard that Trump is just a latecomer on immigration? People who repeat that malicious slander actually mean well for the USA. Cruz reshapes their own patriotism like a political 'plastic explosive' to spread hatred and and lies. Trump's books consistently...

  • VANITY: Definition of "Carpet Bombing"

    01/28/2016 8:23:46 PM PST · by TigerClaws · 29 replies
    Carpet bombing, also known as saturation bombing, is a large aerial bombing done in a progressive manner to inflict damage in every part of a selected area of land.[1][2][3][4] The phrase evokes the image of explosions completely covering an area, in the same way that a carpet covers a floor. Carpet bombing is usually achieved by dropping many unguided bombs. The term obliteration bombing is sometimes used to describe especially intensified bombing with the intention of destroying a city or a large part of the city.[5] The term area bombing refers to indiscriminate bombing of an area,[5] and also encompasses...

    Since the holiday break, Cruz campaign donation solicitations have been ubiquitous. Today I received a phone solicitation. The caller was very polite and in that respect represented the Cruz campaign well.The spiel was that if I donate any amount, no matter how little, it would be tripled by some other donor. I asked who that other donor is, and that I was concerned if that person gave three times as much as I did, they'd have three times the impact. The caller said he'd check with an advisor and get back to me.He did so. The answer was that for...
  • So This Is "John Kerry's Global Warming".January Weather In Early November?

    And to no surprise, we haven't and probably wont hear from John Kerry regarding this record cold/arctict outbreak that is gradually wreaking havoc in a very cold way throughout Central America and spreading. Now, didn't "Secretary Of State" claim to all of us that "Global Warming/Climate Change is real"?. Maybe John Kerry needs to make another "Global Warming Speech" somewhere in Colorado, Oklahoma, Montana and maybe even Northern Texas, and then explain his theory that we are experiencing Global Warming As We Speak !!.
  • What The GOP Should Do.Run On "Democrat Income Inequality".

    What better way to fight fire with fire.Being the Democrats want to run against income inequality,why not have GOP candidates run on the same issue,and call it "Democrat Caused Income Inequality",and just keep running ads showing the nation how their policies have caused every economic hardship over half the nation has been bearing since 2008.And this will be along with the failure of Obama-Care. Then this would put the rats in a tailspin for the next two years.

    The GOP attacks on Palin.   After the Inauguration of Obama, the first time that the manhood of the GOP was called into question was the Stimulus package.  Rick Santelli was so upset with it that he issued his now famous diatribe calling for something like a national tea party.  A long simmering emotion within conservative ranks now had a name. Meanwhile, back in Alaska, Sarah Palin's return to work involved dealing with these stimulus package issues, and she did what she felt that she must.  She took those which were appropriate, but turned away those that weren't.  This was...

    I recently posted an article suggesting that Mchele Bachmann's candidacy, and its impact on Sarah Palin, is reminiscent of the 1980 candidacy of Phil Crane, which Ronald Reagan considered a threat to his nomination: Is Michele Bachmann Sarah Palin's Phil Crane? LINKAs I point out in the article linked above, Crane never really thought he had a chance for the nomination, and he was content to have one of the moderates (Baker or Bush) get the nomination in hopes that they would install Crane as the Vice-Presidential nominee. I did not explore some of the reasons why Crane's belief was...
  • Palin is not running for the republican nomination. She's going rogue!

    06/19/2011 7:01:27 PM PDT · by RED SOUTH · 173 replies · 1+ views
    Here is the why Romney will be the republican nominee and why Perry or Cain or Bachmann will not save the republicans. Romney is moving left on global warming and staying the course on Romneycare and you will see him take his natural left positions on other issues as the campaign gets underway. His goal is to attract as many democrat voters into the republican open primaries as possible to vote for him. Meanwhile , Bachmann has been brought into the race by the establishment as well as Cain who has no idea. Perry is coming in too. This is...

    On the day of the release of “Undefeated”, the new Sarah Palin movie, The Stakes are high indeed It’s an amazing, somewhat frightening time that we live in today. We are witnessing the slow but steady collapse of the US economic system that’s been in place since the end of WW2. Does anyone really think that gas prices won’t continue to rise? Energy prices won’t “necessarily skyrocket”? Housing prices won’t continue to crater? Foreclosures won’t continue to blight the entire housing market? On the World stage, the Arab Spring has become a scary echo of Europe circa 1938, with Jews...

    As even the pundits are beginning to acknowledge, their two year long campaign to keep Sarah Palin out of the 2012 Presidential election has failed. She is going to run. Even the likes of Karl Rove acknowledge it at this point. Their strategy for stopping her will now shift in focus, but it will remain essentially the same. Smear and distract. The Establishment of both parties will continue the relentless ad hominems against her that have so far fallen like spent bullets at her feet. And they will try to distract her in any way possible by raising issues of...

    I have been a casual observer of polls for over three decades, since early 1979 (about the same time in the 1980 election cycle as we find ourselves in the 2012 cycle) when Jimmy Carter was posting a 57-35 lead over Ronald Reagan in the respected Gallup poll. Carter maintained double digits leads over Reagan throughout 1979 and even into the spring of 1980, as the March 31, 1980 edition of time observed. ("National opinion polls continue to show Carter leading Reagan by an apparently comfortable margin of about 25%.") Early polls of general election contests (19 months out) are...

    Governor Palin must be the GOP nominee because of energy. Energy will arguably be the top issue facing America in 2012. The rise in fuel prices also brings about a rise in commodity and food prices, as those products are trucked, shipped, and flown to their destinations. I work in transportation logistics, and I can tell you first hand that fuel prices are so high, drivers for most of the carriers my account is contracted to are refusing to haul freight unless they get additional money for fuel. There are over 6,000 products made from petroleum. Here is a partial...
