Mark Levin on Hillary's "Accomplishments"

Did you know there was a "World Women's Summit" yesterday? Neither did anyone else. Levin says 99.999% of the world's women didn't know there was one either. It seems the moderator asked her a very simple, straight forward question: "When you look at your time as Secretary of State, what are you most proud of, and what do you feel was unfinished, you'd maybe love to have another crack at one day?" Fairly simple two part question right?

Woohooo! Michigan tips the scales: Article Five Convention!

You know that state that looks like it's waving at you from The Great Lakes? That's my state, and we've tipped the scale which FORCES Congress to call an Article Five convention!
 
LANSING, Mich., April 4, 2014– "Michigan’s recently passed resolution calling for an Article V convention of the states to amend the federal Constitution may have been the catalyst to finally put the process in motion. At the magic number of 34, Michigan joins multiple other states that have successfully passed a resolution calling for a federal balanced budget amendment (BBA). Tennessee passed its BBA resolution only a couple weeks before Michigan.

Karl Rove and the GOPe Fighting Their Own Base

Rove: noun; to wander aimlessly.
 
There is no doubt that the Republican elite are well versed in losing.  Karl Rove won only one percent of the races that he backed in the 2012 elections. His highly visible on-air meltdown on election night should have wiped his weasel face off of the map for the future of the party.  
 
Tokyo Rove is more interested in lining his own pockets and holding on to his position of power amongst the establishment GOP than in winning elections.  This guy must have some serious dirt on the people who keep paying him...that or we have some really stupid people running the party, (probably both).

How Huckabee Chooses Who To Endorse

When I saw that Mr. Levin had Facebooked and Tweeted this piece by Jen Kuznicki last night, naturally I had to read it. In addition to that, she and her husband are personal friends of ours, but that didn't let me get through to the site for a couple of hours, as it was overwhelmed by readers. Persistence is good though, and I got in through the front door and read it.

Supreme Court Decision Doesn't Go Far Enough

Newt Gingrich on latest Supreme Court decision: Big victory for the First Amendment.
 
I just can't help liking Newt Gingrich. Is he perfect? Heck no, who is? He was most definitely a very effective Speaker of The House though. Will never forget when he became speaker during the Clinton years. What an exciting election that was. 
 
Let's compare him to John Beohner for a moment shall we? No, better not. Both my keyboard and your eyes would burst into something or other. The results wouldn't be kid friendly either. They certainly wouldn't be Boehner friendly.
 
Anyway, heeeeeeeere's Newt!

Koch Brother Speaks Out

I've been waiting for one of these oft maligned brothers to speak out, and Charles Koch finally has, with a piece written by himself and printed in the Wall Street Journal.
 
By Charles G. Koch:
 
"I have devoted most of my life to understanding the principles that enable people to improve their lives. It is those principles—the principles of a free society—that have shaped my life, my family, our company and America itself.

The GOP, Conservatives, and Stockholm Syndrome

"Stockholm syndrome or capture-bonding, is a psychological phenomenon in which hostages express empathy and sympathy and have positive feelings toward their captors, sometimes to the point of defending and identifying with them. These feelings are generally considered irrational in light of the danger or risk endured by the victims, who essentially mistake a lack of abuse from their captors for an act of kindness..."

Unbuilding (?) the GOP Base

 
Collectively, the GOPe is a dang fool. They need to learn how to understand the difference between foolishness and wisdom, uncommon sense and common idiocy, intelligence and ignorance, a better life for your children versus equally poor socialism, freedom versus subjugation, economic power versus eternal stagnation, opportunity versus spirit zapping welfare, picking oneself up by one’s bootstraps and accomplishing whatever your dreams can imagine versus taking whatever the government is willing to toss your way. Understanding these differences would be a good first step towards being able to explain them to the electorate.
