  1. Guard the Borders: Immigration Benefits for Sex

    Folks, it doesn’t only happen in the movies, that sworn defenders of the United States will do anything for money or sex, even sell out their country to an easily exploited national security risk. What sort of unbelievable recipe for disaster i…

    Bush Looks Into Miers Eyes, Sees Soul

    The surprise dis-appointment of White House counsel Harriet Miers to the Supreme Court has many top conservatives conservatively smoldering. Bush announced the pick on Monday, stating that “I’ve known Harriet Miers for more than a decade. I know her …

    Six More Years Of Byrd

    Shelley Moore Capito’s decision to stay in Congress rather than challenge Robert Byrd next year means the senator-for-life will get a record ninth term. The same pollster who showed her in June to be within the margin of error showed her last month to…

  5. Cheney/Rangel – Geezers Gone Wild

    In an interview with Rush Limbaugh today, Vice President Dick Cheney fired back at the absurd and (I think) strange ramblings of Rep. Charles Rangel (D-NY). Mr. Cheney stated that Rangel is “losing it”.

  6. Bush’s Legal “Pit Bull” Miers Picked For Supreme Court (UPDATED ALL DAY)

  7. Hopeful signs

    Re: Miers that is. On “life” issues:According to Kyleen Wright at Texans for Life, Harriet Miers gave $150 to the organization ? then known as Texans United for Life ? in 1989. Miers was a bronze patron for their annual…

    Profile: The Analysts

    We’ve had many great successes, but I can’t describe them. We have some of the military’s best analysts, and I can’t give you any background that would help convey the magnitude of their achievements.

  9. For some reason, I pinged the Traffic Jam over an hour ago, nothing. Then I tried again with Wizbang stand-alone and got an error “already pinged.” Hmmmmm…

  10. FREE DELAY!!

    Last week, a true American Patriot was indicted on one of the most serious charges a public official can be guilty of:

    Possibly sorta tied to some kind of conspiracy to launder or is it redirect (?) contribution money very sneakily when, in fact, …

  11. Elaborating On Miers

    I’ve given this a great deal of thought today, and I think we — as in conservatives, particularly conservatives in the blogosphere — need to be clear as to what exactly we object to regarding Bush’s nomination of Harriet Miers….

  12. Sign of the times…

    Going-ons in my state (GA). The US entitlement mentality gets deadly….

    I notice lately that when I send one that over the response box it says something like “this XML document doesn’t seem to have a style set to it”.

  14. OU Student Suicide

    We were out the OU-Kansas State game Saturday evening. During the game, a student – Joel “Joe” Hinrichs – sat down on a bench near the stadium and killed himself with some sort of homemade bomb. The explosion took place almost directly w…

    Today’s winner is the government of Denmark.

  16. Quote of the Day: John Bogle on the Mutual Fund Industry

    Well, it’s more of a rant than a quote–The Former Vanguard Chairman, who is never at a loss for words, rips the mutual fund industry:

    The problems created by this new and conflicted world of financial intermediation are hardly trivial. E…

  17. Don’t Save, Pay Off Debt!

    There are many debt reduction strategies out there but the idea is that you should be using your extra money to pay off the debt. I know there are people out there who are making the mistake of opening an Emigrant Direct account, putting in extra money…

  18. E tu Bushe’

    I’m on the road (memphis) and just tuned in to get the full scoop, or what little scoop I could find on Harriet Meirs and well to say that I am completely disappointed wouldn’t do it justice. I think time and time again this president has constantly betra

  19. Let’s Face It, Conservatives…

    We’ve been double-crossed. ProfessorBainbridge has been blogging up a storm today about the Miers nomination. He and a whole lot of other people are pretty discouraged. You can count me among them. There are a few conservatives who are urging…

  20. Julie Myers Nomination Put On “Hold”, Called Unqualified By ICE Agents (Update)

    Cronyism, the first word that comes to mind when mentioning Julie Myers. Here’s the latest news on her nomination. The nomination of Julie Myers to head the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency has been put on hold by…

  24. Oh Hell and Good Intentions

    The following post may sound arrogant, but is not intended to be. It is the result of much thought, not a self-serving desire to pretend superiority or maturity. I don’t mean hold the mantra of “reality based community” over the head of my opponents…
