Bush Should Retire Early—In Mexico!

image—Satire—
To whom is George W. Bush more loyal and sympathetic? Illegal aliens from Mexico or American citizens?

For the answer, look carefully at the photo—it shows illegal aliens scaling a border fence to invade America. And where is our goofy president?

Look closer. That is W waving a Mexican flag as part of his greeting ceremony for a chunky Mexican illegal just after she hopped the fence!

The Huckabee Hustle

When evangelicals embraced Jimmy Carter during the 1976 presidential campaign, they didn’t know he would repudiate the Southern Baptist Convention a generation later.  Today the very same constituency has glommed onto Mike Huckabee, and I can’t help but lament how history truly does repeat itself.

A World on the Dole

If there is one fundamental difference between conservatives and liberals, it’s that conservatives believes in self-sufficiency while liberals prefer government control and social management. While many conservatives recognize this phenomenon on the individual and community level, fewer realize that this is the case on the national and global level.

The Christmas Gift in the Battleground Poll

Just in time for Christmas, conservatives have been given another gift:  we are the overwhelming majority of America.  This is not “news.”  I have written an article about the Battleground Poll every time a Battleground Poll has come out since June 2002.  The results are always the same:  people who call themselves either “conservative” or “very conservative” constitute the overwhelming majority of all Americans.

Bush Promotes Hillary’s Policies

Some conservatives are insisting that the Bush Administration’s capitulation to the global warming alarmists at the Bali, Indonesia, U.N. Climate Change Conference was either meaningless or else a victory!  Such claims represent knee-jerk apologies for the Bush Administration. The spin has got to stop. The sad fact is that Bush endorsed Hillary’s position on climate change at the Bali event.

The Princeton Hate Crime That Wasn’t

The Jena 6 case exploded over night when the Media imagined they had a “race hate” issue on their hands. They did the same with the Duke Rape case.

Hillary: Growing Old Quickly, and Without Grace

Take a good look at a recent photograph of Hillary Clinton. Notice the bags under her bloated eyes, the turkey giblet developing below her neck, the heavy wrinkles and deep lines all across her forehead and face.

Is Mike Huckabee Running for President or Pastor?

Republican candidate Mike Huckabee’s special Christmas campaign message is a brilliant attempt at reminding voters which candidate would make the best Pastor-in-Chief. But is it likely to make him Commander-in-Chief?

Is America Cheap on ‘Humanitarian Aid’?

So, we are the “ugly American,” we’re always told. But to whom do they come running when they need help? Italy, France, maybe? Hardly. Still, they love to beat up on the US, and unfortunately our MSM is only too happy to act the echo chamber for anti-Americanism.

Our Underground Economy

On Tuesday of this week, I received an email from Enterprise Rent-A-Car entirely in Spanish. This was followed by a second email (en inglés esta vez) which apologized for the previous email and offered me a 15% discount on my next rental. As nice as it is to receive a discount on an expensive service, these emails raise two questions: why is Enterprise sending emails in Spanish to its customers, and why the apology and discount offer?

We Can’t Win By Focusing on Not Losing!

I have but one message for my fellow conservatives. If we focus all of our attention on “not losing” the 2008 election, there is no way we can win the 2008 election.

Why is Public Education Failing?

It’s a fact. Most of today’s school children can barely read or write. They can’t perform math problems without a calculator. They barely know who the Founding Fathers were and know even less of their achievements. Most can’t tell you the name of the President of the United States. It’s pure and simple; today’s children aren’t coming out of school with an academics education.
