While I could wish that the questions were a bit tougher, or that it was more rigidly structured, I suppose I’m satisfied with this debate if for no other reason than the solid “W” Mitt walked away with.  To read the transcript for yourself, head over here.

Romney: You’ve been president four years. You said you’d cut the deficit in half. It’s now four years later. We still have trillion-dollar deficits. The CBO says we’ll have a trillion-dollar deficit each of the next four years.

Just wanted to share a piece by Paul Kengor I saw over on Foxnews.com.  Go here to read it, then let me know what you think below.

I just wish I was surprised.  Granted, it is difficult to indoctrinate young people with your warped ideology if you actually provide them with te facts…  Come on, folk, why are we paying this people to push their agenda?

 

A few more videos of the genius, who explains conservative principles in a far less abrasive manner than my level of patience allows me.

The recent strike by teachers in Chicago is over, and everybody seems to be heaving a sigh of relief.  The politicians, because they can say they’ve resolved the issue; parents, because their children have a place to go during the day, other than wandering the crime infested streets of Chicago; teachers last and, in my opinion for this matter, least, get to go back to “work” (quotations explained later), with assurances of an even fatter paycheck, and safe in the knowledge that the attempt to judge their performance has been quashed.

This is going to be the first in a series of posts featuring videos of Milton Friedman.  The man wasn’t just hilarious, he wasn’t just a genius, he had an amazing talent for communicating the virtues of democracy and the free market to people who otherwise might not worry about such things.

So, for the first set of videos, I’ll be posting the entirety of Mr. Friedman’s 1979 appearance on Donahue.  I’d say this is one of my favorites, but really, I’d end up saying that about all of these videos.  I will say that it is still priceless to me how easily he deals with Donahue in those moments when he’s convinced he’s got Friedman stumped, and how frustrated he gets to see that Milton, far from being backed into a corner, relishes the opportunity to correct Donahue’s misconceptions.

If you’ve seen these videos before, and are anything like me, I’m sure you’ll want to watch them again.  If you haven’t?  Well, enjoy!

The Republican Party was formed to fight slavery, fought a war to free the slaves, fought Jim Crow laws enacted by Democrats, forced Reconstruction on the reluctant South, passed the first civil rights act, and defeated a Democrat filibuster of the 1960s Civil Rights Acts. But some time in the last 40-50 years Republicans, and conservatives in general, gave up that fight.    The results of that surrender have been horrific for the African American community.   Progressive dominance has destroyed their communities, destroyed their families, and condemned generation after generation to lives without hope.  It is time we conservatives rejoined the battle.

So, for my first post, I thought I’d take a stab at one of the ridiculous pseudo-scandals the media is currently trying to push.

The ‘scandal’ it that he said this:

“Well, there are 47% of the people who will vote for the president no matter what
