As W Says, there was a Hanging Today

For once, Obama's Blame Bush Brigade came to a halt, and for once, he honored the man!

Don't Super Size Me

Just ask any Atlantan: Coca-Cola is bigger than life! It's always been the company that has been viewed as the king of worldwide marketing. Looks like Coca-Cola and other companies like it are not as popular in New York City.

John Edwards Walks

The John Edwards verdict was read today and no surprise, he walked; acquitted on one count and hung jury on the remaining five.

Prime Working Age Americans Hurt Worst by Unemployment and Obama

This economy has hurt so many Americans and it does not discriminate against any one particular field. Educators, attorneys, business people, investment specialists, government relations professionals, pharmaceutical workers, etc, have all been affected; as I have at least one friend in those fields who have been out of work for a time period.

Memorial Day @ the NJ Vietnam Veterans Memorial

Part of my Memorial Day was spent among heroes (and I'm happy to see the President did the same thing today...maybe Axelrod read Friday's blog entry...)

Memorial Day

Memorial Day may be the unofficial arrival of summer, but this day means so much more to many. It is a day where we honor those who have fallen in the cause for freedom. These men and women who wore the uniform, and died wearing it, deserve every honor and remembrance under the sun. We should take a moment out of our day to remember them; be it in our thoughts or at a Memorial Day ceremony in our community. Never forget that as we enjoy our cookouts, time at the beach and moments spent with friends and family, it's BECAUSE of these brave men and women that we have the freedom to celebrate the fun part of this day. May God Bless those brave souls lost in the fight for freedom and look down upon their families who have to live every day on earth, without their loved ones who selflessly gave their lives for freedom.

Liberal War on Conservative Women Continues

The picture above is of me with S.E. Cupp, who I had the pleasure of seeing in Puerto Rico last year at the Young Republican National Convention. Having previously met S.E. Cupp, as well as following her career and reading her books, I have gained a great respect for her as a successful Gen-X Conservative and was absolutely sickened by what I saw this week, as the left continues to fight a war on Conservative women.

Booker's Backtrack

In the years both have been in power, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and Newark Mayor Cory Booker have been fostering a positive working relationship, which has even been spoofed. Last weekend, Booker made an appearance on Meet the Press and made comments that raised the eyebrows of many in both parties.

Ramifications of Dharun Ravi's Sentence

Many in New Jersey and in the country have been following the criminal proceedings against Dharun Ravi, the former Rutgers student who was convicted for spying on/broadcasting a romantic encounter of his roommate, Tyler Clementi, with another man. Clementi committed suicide, jumping off the George Washington Bridge, after it became known the encounter was made public. The sentence came down today: 30 days in a county prison, a fine and probation.

The Gov and the Mayor: A Rather Humorous Web Video

With Newark Mayor Cory Booker in the news lately and his popularity rising among Democrats, Governor Chris Christie, who actually has a pretty good relationship with the Newark Mayor, made the following video, spoofing his recent heroics and speculation about Christie:

Palin Power in the Heartland

Nebraska had a primary yesterday and it didn't just encompass the presidential vote. In 2012, the state of Nebraska will elect a new Senator with the retirement of Ben Nelson. It is now determined that Democrat and former Governor/Senator Bob Kerrey will face Nebraska State Senator Deb Fischer. The primary race on the Republican side was seen as an upset to many, but her win can be summed up in two words: Sarah Palin.

Don't Count Your Chickens...

The picture above (taken at Chris Christie's 2009 Victory Party) is one every Republican is loves seeing and will hope to see on November 6, 2012. Things are looking good, but I must say, not so fast, and tell my Republican friends to not count your chickens before they hatch!

Another Flip-Flop While the Adults are Talking

Last week, as was well publicized, President Obama made the political decision to personally endorse gay marriage, re-taking his first position, yet still believing marriage is a “state’s rights issue.” We’re starting to get dizzy following his flip-flops because he changed his position again.

"...Soldiers Fighting on my Behalf"

Let's see if you have a moment of speechlessness after viewing this video clip...

Left Writing the Script for the Next "War"

At the beginning of this campaign season, Obama and the Democrats set out to raise one billion dollars in campaign cash. Five months into 2012, that goal is likely to not be met, the president is speaking to half-empty basketball arenas and it seems that the pizazz and lore of 2008 is not there. What is a president to do?!?

Election Results Going Against the Media's Narrative

Considering the candidates in November are fait accompli, many in the US do not know there were significant primaries in some very important states yesterday.

Hollande has Taken Over France

Watching what is happening in France, the punchline of that title follows in this fashion: "the Dutch are the only people who haven't accomplished that feat."

Newt's Departure Paves the Way for Mitt

I may be a little late in writing about this, and no, my fellow readers, it's not sour grapes as to why. What had become inevitable to all Newt supporters, including myself, is that his campaign was coming to an end, and that was made official last week, as he suspended his campaign.

Veterans Respond to the Football Spike

The men and women who choose to fight for the United States of America are heroes; each and every one of them. They should be honored and revered in every way possible in our society. Whether a "Thank you for your service to our country," (and this was done well over 30 times in my visit to the Pentagon and Arlington National Cemetery last week) or a donation to a military organization, every little bit helps.
