Man, I am sick of these liberal CEO’s who unfairly try to silence Conservative voices – or anyone that disagrees with them. The list is long and seems to be growing. And I love to see the blow-back force the sanctimonious liberals to cave when people rise up and vote with their money. And one […]

Mitt Romney is Just as Conservative as Scott Brown!

Did you hear the latest on Massachusetts “Conservative” Senator Scott Brown?

Juan Williams Strategy Pays Off for Democrats

While Republicans frequently place their own offspring on the menu, usually in the “nothing to gain” course, Democrats will also eat their young, though they are more likely to require that the delicacy nourish their cause.
