Republicans and Independents Think Media Skews Left

imageGallup News Service has just released a new poll that supports what we hear every day; the Media is perceived as left leaning. Yet, for a report on how the media leans left, titling their piece “Republicans Remain Deeply Distrustful of News Media” and subtitling it “Democrats much more positive,” even Gallup’s article seems to skew left. After all, when the poll results are reviewed it shows that both Republicans and independents are “distrustful of the media,” not just Republicans. And that fact would tend to show that more people think that the media is leftist than don’t.

Will U.N. Sea Treaty Sink Sen. Coleman

Minnesota Republican Senator Norm Coleman has a tough re-election fight in 2008 and his Democratic opponent could be obnoxious left-wing comedian Al Franken. But Coleman, who chaired important hearings in 2005 into the United Nations oil-for-food scandal, is starting to make conservatives nervous. He skipped two important hearings on ratification of the controversial United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) but found enough time for a photo-op with rock star Bono.

Bill Gives Gov’t Employees Free Education

That headline reads right, sad to say. A new bill that has already passed both houses of Congress and is headed for Bush’s desk forgives the student loans of Federal employees of 10 years service.  H.R.2669 gives already undeserving public employees yet another wonderful benefit that is denied to the average, working American.

Are the Communists Coming?

The Iraqi Tar Baby

As one of those who thought the invasion of Iraq was a good thing to do for both humanitarian and strategic reasons, the flow of books by those who went there after the invasion or by Iraqis who did their best to put it on the path to democracy all tell essentially the same story.

Bill Clinton and Al Gore’s ‘Phony Soldiers’

Talker Rush Limbaugh is under fire for being falsely accused of saying that any U.S. soldier who comes out against the war is a “phony soldier.” He did not, of course, say such a thing. Rush was actually talking about a man named Jesse Macbeth, who was touted by anti-war activists as a soldier who came out against the war, but it turned out later that Macbeth never served in the military at all.

“E Pluribus Unum”

My sons are both in high school and are under the common teenage misconception that they are liberals. They parrot what they hear from their teachers, their friends at school, and their father from my first marriage. They don’t necessarily want to engage me in debate about my conservative beliefs.

The Blue Angels: A Symbol of U.S. Navy Pride

The U.S. Navy’s flight exhibition squadron, the Blue Angels, is a rare treat to behold. They are a fine example of the precision, discipline, and sheer guts exhibited by our military.

Fall Guy

If spring is the budding season, summer the season of sunshine and roses, and winter, except for snow-bunnies, the season that drives us southward, or indoors, then, autumn, dazzling in its cloak of blazing colors, is a season for all reasons.

Brainy Republicans Support U.N. Sea Treaty

“If Democrats had any brains, they’d be Republicans.” This is the new partisan blast from Ann Coulter. One major problem with her thesis is that her book is being released at a time when members of the Bush Administration are currently joining with liberal Senate Democrats in trying to rush through the dangerous U.N. Law of the Sea Treaty.

Obama Could Learn Plenty About Patriotism from Jim Broussard

imageTo the best of my knowledge, veteran Jim Broussard has never been, and is not now, a candidate for the U.S. presidency. I have no idea if Broussard is a Democrat, Republican, or Independent, or if he is even registered to vote.

Nonetheless, one thing is certain about the Reno, Nevada citizen: He has more understanding of, and respect for, patriotism and the American flag than Democrat presidential candidate Barack Obama.

Stocks Up, Hurricanes Down: Hail to the Chief?

While the mainstream media portray America as damn near uninhabitable because of President Bush, those who care should at least consider the “rest of the story” as Paul Harvey would say.
