We have tried the conventional methods to rid our descendants of the curse called obamaKare, and they have failed.
In 2010 we worked to elect Scott Brown to prevent the Senate from forcing a vote on the Bill, but obama and reid ignored standing rules and pushed it through despite a national uprising in support of Brown and opposition to obamaKare. We elected a Congress that promised to overturn it, but the majority of the…Continue
I use 1and1.com website hosting, and since Friday evening have had trouble getting to the admin side of my site. Users can see the site and enter orders, but I can not manage orders, change prices, or anything that requires admin login. Can not even get to 1and1.com! Problem has persisted all day today.
Around noon I got an email from 1and1, reminding me of the "Refer a Friend" campaign. I called the number and spoke to a very friendly guy, and explained that after the last 4…
In the past several weeks, we have heard the elitists in both politics and the media(if there is a difference) sneer and scoff at the thought of America's gun owners taking on the U.S. Military or Law Enforcement in response to a slew of new gun restrictions aimed at disarming responsible gun owners. They are so isolated in their heavily-fortified mental bunkers that they fail to see the light of day, and their vision of the coming battles does not even recognize the…Continue

I own and love a Mosin-Nagant. The weapon was the standard in Russia through the Revolution, WW1, and WW2. Its offspring served the Chinese against the French and the Americans in at least 2 additional wars. It is living history. Upon purchasing mine, I disassembled and refinished the woodwork. It receives compliments everywhere it goes. When a surplus dealer offered used Mosin stock assemblies for sale, I jumped at the chance to refinish them.…Continue

Just 3 years ago we were vibrant, effective, and full of optimism. Today we would struggle to find the energy to go out and vote.
What has happened to us?
In 2010 we worked to elect a Congress that promised to be fiscally responsible, bold, and Constitutional. By August of 2011, many of those whom we supported had already been corrupted by the Washington establishment and jumped on the boehner train to ruin. Sandy Adams and Allen West come to mind with their…Continue

Hooray! Washington has avoided the fiscal cliff. Welcome to the abyss.
On the bond market open December 31, 2012, the U.S. 10 year treasury bill was priced to yield 1.72%. This morning it will be priced to yield 1.95%. Small potatoes, right?
Consider that on July 25, 2012, this same bond was priced to yield 1.40%. Had you bought $10,000 worth of 10-year T-bills on that day, they would be worth about $7200 on the open market this morning. True, if you hold until…Continue

The "raid" Thursday by ATF agents and law-enforcement on the gun store in Connecticut was designed to send Americans various messages:

Reasonable men may argue forever about the existence of God and the existence of satan. No reasonable man will argue about the existence of evil. We can not eliminate it, nor legislate it out of existence. Our only solution is to overpower it. If yesterday's slaughter of innocents is not convincing evidence of evil's existence what would it take?
I do not understand why this puke killed innocent men, women, and children, but am confident that I know why he chose that…Continue
SPCA of North Brevard is now one of the non-profits listed on eBay's "Giving works" list. You can donate from 10% to 100% of the proceeds of your auctions to a local, worthwhile group. Besides, most of our regifted Christmas gifts are coming back around now, so it's a great way to break that chain as well.
They are listed as "SPCA of North Brevard, Inc"
I learned this today after canceling my auctions with WWP as the beneficiary and went looking for a new…Continue

A few decades ago, my older brother told me I was naive to think the two parties in Washington really had differences. His contention was that they were little more than pro wrestlers, taking turns being the good guys while keeping their rabid, devoted fans committed to them and making them all rich. I vehemently voiced my disagreement.
An hour ago I heard the newly-selected head of the Heritage Foundation state that harry reid is a close personal friend of his, confirming my…Continue

How we lost the election, and how we lost the nation
We have had a month of the media analyzing the election results, and telling us why we lost. We didn’t have the ground game that the democrats had. We didn’t reach out to Hispanics. We alienated women. We alienated the poor. I disagree. We lost because 49% of voters receive some sort of government “benefit,” another 20% are employed by government at some level, the media and over half of Americans consider truth…Continue
The story of the ORCA debacle reminded me of the phone-banking with Apryl for the NRA on Nov 3. The call lists were supposed to be verified second amendment supporters and lifetime NRA members. The call lists were anything BUT. Half way through my first page, I had to ask if the list had been bought from the DNC. I never finished my second page, as it seemed my time would be better spent preparing for sign distribution. Of the 1.5 pages I called, no more than 2 were completed to the name on…Continue
Well, it is settled. The American voters have reaffirmed their commitment to becoming subjects of the state, marking the first time in history that a free people have staged a revolution taking themselves into serfdom.
What happens next?
1) The Treasury continues to borrow until the last lender says "Hell NO!"
2) The Federal Reserve Bank continues to print real and virtual currency until nobody will accept it, or the cost of paper exceeds the value of the currency.…Continue

We all remember 2010, the year that we wrote checks, worked on campaigns, organized and gave Florida Governor Scott and huge majorities in the Legislature. Along with the Legislature we gave them a mandate to redraw the Congressional districts in reasonable geographic zones during the reapportionment process.
The first sense of the "Up yours!" attitude came with the new district maps, which carefully preserved Corrinne Brown's "district for life" while carving Allen West out…Continue
We need to spend some time considering the months ahead, the President's agenda, the awakening of the news media and world leaders, and how these events will affect our lives and our families. Win or lose, Mr. obama has his agenda lined up and ready for action with or without Congress. The only difference to him is time compression. Will he take 50 months to institute his "Transformation of America," or 2 months?
The first order of business will probably be a bailout of…Continue

About a week ago, there were a few dozen "Fisher for County Commission" signs adjacent to obama signs. Some were even hovering over obama signs, as though the thick, sturdy legs of the Fisher signs were embracing the frail obama signs.
I believe that there are now just 2 of them so positioned. It seems that someone does not want the association. In some cases the obama signs have disappeared completely. In other locations, the obama signs have been moved quite a distance away,…Continue
Last year in Wisconsin during the Walker recall effort, our friends from the dark side began the practice of identifying, stalking, intimidating, and harassing relatives, friends, and vocal supporters of the Governor. From following them on the roadways to pointing them out at the local supermarket, they did everything possible to make them uncomfortable.
It appears that they have now moved on to ambush and aggravated battery. This was not a random case of a guy stealing a…Continue
While waving my Romney/Ryan sign today with my new, reconciliatory "Unite, Save America" header, a black guy driving a bobtail rolled down his window and gestured me to come over. Jumping at the invitation, he began shouting before I got within 10 feet of his cab. As I got close enough to hear him over the engine noise, I heard him loud and clear. "We have to win this. These guys are killing us truckers. I'm driving 800 miles to pick up my next load, and that sucks at $4plus a gallon. We…Continue
I had thought that this species was imaginary, like unicorns. And then today I met a pair of them.
Both were in their late 20's to early 30's, and I do not doubt their claim that they are Romney supporters. When I brought up the County Commission race, both said they were voting for Fisher. A summary of the conversation:
she: "I know Rob Fisher, and think he has done a lot for the north county."
he: "Yes, we were just a stepchild of the county until he…Continue
