I use to love listening to the likes of Glenn Beck , Laura Ingram, and maybe a little Rush but, they all say the same thing. Let me explain. I consider myself an independent conservative living deep in the heart of Texas. I got to say I will never listen to them again. Ever since Obama got elected, no matter what he does, they all go the opposite way. He could announce he likes ice cream and the would cry that ice cream is the work of the devil. Where is the independent analysis?
I use to enjoy listening to their point of view. Now they are so predictable. I can't believe people still listen to them. How can you not change the dial when they always offer the same point of view? If I wanted to listen to the same thing over and over again, I would tape Sean Hannity and play it over and over again!
I am not saying that I agree with President Obama on everything but I do have a mind of my own and try to use it. Talk radio needs to do the same!

Pelosi, you got some esplaning to do!!!!!

A funny thing happened on the way to the torture debate! House Speaker Nancy Pelosi new all about it and never raised any objections. Right after 9/11, she was a ranking member of the house intelligence committee. In that role, she was briefed on specific enhanced interrogation methods being used by the CIA and the DOD. If she had any objections, why did she not raise them? Congress's role is to have oversight over the CIA.
Years later , the torture techniques where made public. Then she decided to speak out. What a political hack! Now she is claiming ignorance saying she had no idea the CIA was going to use these techniques. Either she was incompetent in her role of oversight or more likely, she changes her tune depending on which way the political wind is blowing. She and the president better be careful because they seem to be playing politics with our national security. Which might come back to bite them, if we are ever hit again! Lets pray to god it is not the later!

Rush, GOP, you have no credibility!! By The Mental Pugilist

Sometimes in life, you hear things that just make you want to laugh uncontrollable. Rush and the GOP have been making longtime conservatives like me double over in laughter! It is really funny to here, especially Rush, Them rant on how Obama is turning America into a Socialist country. How about when the cry about so many earmarks in the Omnibus bill. I just want to know one thing, Is Rush really a conservative?
I want to know where was he when George Bush began the largest government expansion in U.S. history. It wasn't Barack Obama. George Bush and Henry Paulson were the ones who started buying stakes in banks not Obama. The banks were bailed out by the so called conservatives of the Reublican party, not President Obama. The earmarks in the omnibus bill, fourty percent were from republicans!!! Hello rush!!
A note to Michael Steele. If you ever want to win again, you really need to grow a spine and stand up to people like Rush Limbaugh and Ann Coulter. Not because conservativism is dead but because true conservatives, like me, can see through the flat out double speak when the supported GW for the last eight years and then turn around and say they hope Obama fails when he is only continuing what your boy has done for the last eight years!!! It might fool some uneducated people who don't pay attention but , it won't fool people who believe in small government and live deep in the heart of Texas. I often hear these so called conservatives decrie the massive governmnet spending the new administration is pruposing. Well genious, what about spending 28 billion per month on empire building in Iraq and Afganistan.
I promise you this Mr. Steele, people can see through this as a sham on conservativism and a sham to the Republican party. If your party is the same as the democrats, then just say so. You will never win another election if you let Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh slam policies of Barack Obama when George Bush started the ball rolling. If you don't correct them and acknowledge that the republican party started all this then you are doomed to fail. The conservative message is still a strong one but it rings hollow comming from Hannity and Limbaugh!!! Any idiot with a pulse can see that. The only chance in hell you have is not turn to the dark side but turn to the right side , RON PAUL!!

Finally a bailout we can all agree on!! By The Mental Pugilist

I just wanted to say wow, what a miraculous piece of flying! Captain Chelsey B Sullenberger should get the Congressional Medal of Honor. On a day that President Bush gave a speech on the last eight years of a disasterous presidency, This accident is something every American can be proud of. With all the bailouts being pushed on the American people, everyone can agree this bailout was spectacular! Imagine only having seconds to decide the fate of one hundered and fifty five people, with no engines and no place to land with out killing scores of people on the ground.
It was amazing how this heroic pilot and crew acted in such a way they did. The miracle was that the pilot was able to do something that has never happened in comerical aviation history. Land a plane ,intacked, in the middle of the Hudson River. Hats off to all the fairy boat drivers as well. We all should be proud of this bailout in the age of the federal reserve and their bailouts that pin millions of dollars on the backs of generations of Americans!

Blagojevich, Obama's secret weapon! By The Mental Pugilist

Now the Blagojevich story makes sense. For the last few weeks, I have been troubled by the news that the Illinois Governor was trying to run a pay to play scheme for Barack Obama's vacant senate seat. I have been trying to wrap my head around the implications it might have on our new incoming president. I have found the answers to my questions surrounding the sordid affair. My questions where as fallows.
1. It is given that Rahm Emanuel talked to Blago about the senate seat but , coming from the Chicago inbred cesspool, did he offer anything for Valerie Jarrett?
2. Why did Valerie Jarrett suddenly drop her name for the senate seat?
3. What is the meaning of Jesse Jackson Junior being named senate candidate five?
4. What are the implications for Obama?

All the answers can found with one person , Jesse Jackson Jr! Take a look. The Chicago Sun times is reporting that he has been an informant to Patrick Fitzgerald's FBI investigation into Blagojevich. It was reported that he has been doing this for seven years. He contacted the FBI after Blagojevich shaked him down for a $25, 000 campaign contribution after he was elected for governor in 2002. In return, Jackson's wife would have been named Illinois lottery commissioner. When Jackson didn't play ball, his wife did not get the job. In turn he went to Fitzgerald's office. You might say so what? What does this have to do with Obama?
Jesse Jackson Jr was national Co-Chair for President elect Obama's campaign. That means that he was a informant long before the campaign. When I first heard the Blagojevich scandal I thought, wow Obama dodged the largest proverbial bullet every shot! But know , it makes sense. I am sure that long before the Obama camp contacted Blagojevich about the senate seat, Jackson Jr. informed Obama of the ongoing investigation into the governor and warned him that he would want a pay to play scheme and not to fall for it! No wonder Valerie Jarret suspiciously dropped out the race! Jesse must have warned them. Know wonder Hard nosed Rahm Emanuel didn't offer anything, Jesse Jackson Jr.
Lets hope there are no more bullets and the Governor is shooting blanks! For the sake of our country!

Pakistan may not exist by the end of Obama's first term!

Over the Thanksgiving weekend, terrorist struck the Indian City of Mumbai. Now the attacks are over, we must ask ourselves what does this mean for Pakistan, U.S. and India? I predict that Pakistan has a good chance of night being around by the end of Barack Obama's first term. Pakistan and India are both Nuclear powers who have fought three wars in the last twenty years. India is already pointing the finger at actors inside Pakistan, specifically Lashkar-e-Taiba.
Let me tell you something you might not know. No one will argue that Lashkar-e-Taiba was created by the ISI to fight in Kashmir. What is even more disturbing is the CIA funded and created the ISI during the Russian war with Afghanistan. What does this all mean? Barack Obama has openly stated that Pakistan is his number one target. Osama Bin Laden is supposedly held up in the tribal areas. It is widely excepted that a majority of terrorist operations originate in Pakistan. Pakistan's civilian government does not control the country. The army and the ISI do! If India can prove the involvement of Lashkar-e-Taiba to the U.S., then look out. Opportunity is the mother of all inventions.
Barack Obama's campaign theme has been to be more diplomatic with these rogue states. Don't be fooled! Look no farther than his chief of staff Rom Emanuel. He is a American born Jew who volunteered and went back to Israel to fight! In the coming weeks, Look for India and Pakistan to ratchet up their war rhetoric. I can see a scenario where India, along with the U.S. decide once and for all to separate the Pakistan military and the ISI from their control of the country. Can you say mini nukes!!

Sanjaya Palin!!!!

Well sometimes the truth will set you free! Now that the election is over, Fox News's Carol Cameron can report on what every American already new, Sanjaya Palin had no business being a Vice Presidential candidate!! The latest is that she did not know Africa was a continent, nor who was in NAFTA. This only re-enforces ,to me, that I voted for the right candidate, President elect Barack Obama!!
This was the first time I have ever voted for a Democratic candidate for the highest office in the land. That says a lot considering I am a conservative living in Texas.
Below I will offer some suggestions ,to the conservative movement, if they want to regain their supporters ;so listen up!

1. Don't tell me you stand for small government , limited spending; then turn around and oversee eight years of the largest government expansion in U.S. history!
2. Don't tell me that you belief in limited spending when you turn around and run up the largest deficit in U.S. History!
3. Don't tell me that Barack Obama is a socialist then turn around and pass a 7 billion dollar bailout to wall street!!
4. Don't tell me that Barack Obama believes in redistribution of wealth then elect a vice president that participates in Alaska's redistribution of wealth from oil companies to its citizens!
5. Don't tell me your candidate has the experience to be president ; then turn around and nominate Sanjaya Palin!
6. Don't tell me Barack Obama's spending programs will bankrupt the economy when you spend 12 billion a month in a country (Iraq) that had nothing to do with 911!
7. Don't let all the right wing radio hosts , day in and day out, hammer Barack Obama and not look at their own party in the face!! You just look silly and stupid!! In other words you got nothing!!

People like Sean Hanity can take full credit for the implosion of the conservative movement! You are becoming more irrelevant by each passing day!! If you really want to resurrect a movement I hold dear, You would rally around true conservatives like Ron Paul!! Not John Mccain and Sanjaya Palin!!
