True Conservatives and RINOs

30 December 2007

Once again, Gribbit has hit the proverbial nail on the head. Go forth and be educated on why Fred Dalton Thompson is the only True Conservative/True Republican running for President of these United States.

Read it here

The best part is at the bottom, but please read the whole thing so that you have the proper foundation. Alexander Hamilton would be proud to cast his vote for Fred.

Same Sex Marriage

30 December 2007

One of the staff at the local fish wrap post a blog about same sex marriages and it generated quite a bit of discussion and drew out the MBs in a big way. Well, over at Gribbit’s Word , Gribbit has a story up about a federal judge granting an injunction preventing the state of Oregon from allowing same sex marriages over the wishes of the people.  Need I state the party of the governor that signed this bit of trash?  Of course it is a dim.  One of the things this would have permitted was that inmates of the state correctional facilities would be able to be housed in the same facility and even the same cell.  This same “right” would not have been granted to heterosexual couples who were guests of the state for a period of time.  Folks, this is getting serious and we as Americans MUST stop it.  Florida has a measure scheduled to be on the November ballot to amend the state Constitution defining marriage as a union between a man and a woman.  We need to make sure this is passed and we send a very loud and crystal clear message to these people that we will not permit them to destroy our family values.  As a country, we are headed down a slippery slope and need to take action state by state to keep this from happening.  It is time to take a stand.

Running with Scissors

27 December 2007

Yep, I’m a child of the 70’s and 80’s.  Phrases such as “your face is going to get stuck that way” and “you’ll put an eye out” were common around my mom’s house.  There were a good number of us that hung out and it was nothing to see a dozen rolling around the neighborhood playing some game or building some structure that on at least one occasion flooded the yard.  Running with scissors? that was the least of our worries.  We were known to shoot off fireworks with no parental supervision (ask SIT if I let him do that), our mothers didn’t need to call our friends mother, they just handled it.  And we only wore shoes under protest.  We were known and in some cases feared only because of sheer numbers.  Yes sir and no sir were common responses.  Head over to Mostly Cajun and see the list again and reminisce about  the good old days.

I do so like Fred

14 December 2007

Call me a Fred Head, but I really like him. John Hawkins over at Right Wing News has the video of Fred responding to the “Global Warming” question and includes a clip of President Reagan responding to a moderator asking a sound man to turn off his mike.  Go yonder and view the clip and pay attention to the others on stage when Fred says that he is not doing a “handshow” today.  One of the others (can’t really tell in the clip who) says “I am with you.”  If that isn’t a candidate getting out in the lead and getting somebody to follow, I don’t know what is.  Say what you will, Fred will make a great president.

I need to find

6 December 2007

a way to post from work.  I usually come across interesting items (at least to me) while at work and would like to blog about them.  Unfortunately, by the time I get to the Command Post, I have lost the passion for whatever it was and wordpress won’t let you mail it in yet.  Maybe it is time I established a virtual CP that I can access from the salt mine.  May look into that when we return to the Command Post in a couple of days.  If you happen to have any ideas, feel free to tell me about them in the comments.

On the road again!

6 December 2007

Well, CINCHOUSE, SIT, and I have established a temporary command post in the Nashville area once again for a championship meet.  SIT has nine events to swim over the next three days and should do very well.  In fact, I fully expect him to make finals in eight of those nine events and he has a real shot at the ninth one.  CINCHOUSE has requested that I not officiate this meet and I will sit on the bench with her.  It will be hard, but I may take the computer with me and see if the rec center has WI-FI.

Good luck SIT and do your very best.
