Excellent speech from a young lady in Texas. So much for the RAAAACIST crying that the hypocrites on the left are spewing.

Stinginess Beyond Measure

by Allen Hunt

Oseola McCarty, a poorly educated African-American laundry woman in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, gave more to charity in one gift than our Vice-President has given in his lifetime. Last week’s release of the Bidens’ tax returns reveals a troubling character weakness. Stinginess. Unrelenting shameless stinginess.

Obama The European vs Sarko The American

by Rachel Marsden

This week, the London Times exposed French President Nicolas Sarkozy’s frustration with Barack Obama and the media drooling surrounding him. The two have very different leadership styles: Sarkozy actually does something, publicizes it like crazy, then watches as he gets ripped to shreds in France’s overwhelmingly far-left media. Sounds about right for a guy nicknamed “Sarko the American” trying to get something done in Europe. By contrast, Obama says he is going to do something, then watches as the media speculates on how incredibly awesome it will be.

Is Obama Another Jefferson?

by Bruce Bialosky

This entire episode with pirates is just way to cool. Everyone can relate to this story because pirates have been a part of all our lives. Some of us grew up with Treasure Island and Long John Silver. Others envision Captain Jack Sparrow from Pirates of the Caribbean. Pirates captivate Americans of all ages.

Diversity pisses me off. It is code for be racist against white males. If we don’t promote the blacks, or females, you’re being racist, or discriminating; it doesn’t matter that the particular black, or female, is less qualified for the position. It happens all the time these days. It’s government sponsored, no less. It’s discrimination, plain and simple.

No Matter How You Slice It, It’s Still Discrimination

by Bobby Eberle

Could the time be coming when American laws finally start to mirror American attitudes toward race? For decades, the Democrats have touted such values as equal rights and equal opportunity, but in reality, their policies have been far, far from that model. Rather than treat each person according to his/her merits, laws (pushed by left wing Democrats) have been put in place to actually favor one race or gender over another.

Channel the Anger Taking to the Streets into a Force for Conservative Change

by Terry Paulson

On April 15th, we interrupted my vacation in Tahoe to participate in a rousing tax-day tea party in Carson City, Nevada. We joined over two thousand souls who were tired of watching President Obama chip away daily at our individual liberties and bankrupt the country we love. To the dismay of liberals and their mainstream media supporters, Americans showed up in the tens of thousands across the United States. These were no parties of the rich gathering in their finery for fundraising tea parties. These were average Americans coming together to take a stand for individual liberty! In doing so, they came face to face with a reassuring reality-they were not alone!

Judge Shocks America’s Conscience

by Ken Blackwell

Recently, a federal court issued a decision that may be the next Supreme Court case in the War on Terror. The court ruled that terrorists held by the U.S. military in Afghanistan are entitled to the writ of habeas corpus, extending a panoply of rights to these detainees. This ruling could have a stunning impact on this and future wars, and bears out just how wrong last year’s major Supreme Court habeas case was.

In the Fray: The Battle for Marriage

by Harry R. Jackson, Jr.

Anderson Cooper is one of the class acts on cable news. He is bright, personable, and very thorough as a journalist. Therefore, on occasion I will compare the coverage of major stories on CNN with both the network news outlets and Fox News. Although I have always liked Cooper’s personal style, I often disagree with his slant on the news.

US to put conditions on Tarp repayment

By Krishna Guha and Daniel Dombey in Washington

Strong banks will be allowed to repay bail-out funds they received from the US government but only if such a move passes a test to determine whether it is in the national economic interest, a senior administration official has told the Financial Times.

21 polo horses die at Fla. match; cause unknown

WELLINGTON, Fla. (AP) – Officials were waiting Monday for test results to find out why 21 polo horses from a Venezuelan team fell fatally ill before a match at a Florida tournament. One veterinarian said it looked like some kind of poison was to blame.

Shortages of ammo and gun accessories cropping up nationwide

Most days are like Christmas for Glen Furtardo.

When he opens boxes sent to the Winchester Gallery gun store in east Fort Worth, he finds out what ammunition he’ll have to stock his shelves with that day as demand for weapons and ammo soars. Reports of heavy sales at gun stores began around the time of Barack Obama’s election as president, and months later, dealers are facing ammo shortages nationwide.

Give Me a Break

By Matt Spivey

2008 was another year of selfishness for our most powerful leaders. I don’t think a third-person account of this issue is strong enough anymore.  This topic has already been covered with that perspective.  This time, I’ll speak to the guilty party directly.

MSM’s Tea Party Cognitive Dissonance

By Kyle-Anne Shiver

In all my years of watching news coverage in America, I don’t believe I have ever witnessed more condescending, amateurish, purely politicized reporting than what just transpired among the liberal MSM covering America’s Tax Day Tea Parties.  The Tea Parties represented a very significant news event.

China only works if we do

By Clarice Feldman

My DC neighbor Rick Ballard, a master of invention and a linguist of note, stopped by to show me his newest creation.

“I call it the Way Forward machine,” he said, explaining it was a takeoff on the reverse phenomenon in the movie ,”Back to the Future” where the Professor was able to transport the souped-up De Lorean backwards in time.

Columbine: Still struggling to accept the lessons

(Author’s Note: This article examines facts related to the Columbine massacre and in no way blames first responders or victims.)

Ten years ago today, on April 20, 1999, two “disgruntled” students decided to murder as many people as possible at Columbine High School. Early in their killing spree, they encountered teacher Dave Sanders and “seriously wounded him with a shotgun blast.” Sanders succumbed to his wounds because medical assistance wasn’t available until over three hours later. What happened in the intervening three hours is both disturbing and vitally important in understanding what course of actions will most likely prevent future Columbines.

No O’pology for killing three African youths?

By James Lewis

The pirate standoff was a classic Jack Bauer crisis: Either shoot the three nutters pointing AK-47s at Captain Richard Phillips, or watch him be killed. So Obama gave permission to use all necessary force should Phillips’ life be in imminent danger, and the Navy Captain in charge gave the order to kill the pirates when a gun was pointed at the hostage’s head.

I noted this to myself last week. Obama is stingy and didn’t really donate to charity until this last year when he knew he would be under extreme scrutiny. I made mention of this to my wife and decided today to take a deeper look at it.

Someone that makes as much as Obama and his nutter of a wife that will not donate to charity, yet look at the American people and yammers on about fair share this, or redistribute that, should be looked at with a sharper eye than the media is doing. But to put any faith in media might be a bit of a stretch.

The Obamas gave away 6.5% of their income this year! Nice. That’s the highest percentage of their income that has been given to charity since, well, ever. In fact, he has given less than one percent of his income in 2000, 2001, and 2002. He broke that tough one percent line in 2003 and 2004. Barely. In 2004 he began running for public office, his donations peaked at 6.1% in 2006.

Stinginess Beyond Measure

by Allen Hunt

Oseola McCarty, a poorly educated African-American laundry woman in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, gave more to charity in one gift than our Vice-President has given in his lifetime. Last week’s release of the Bidens’ tax returns reveals a troubling character weakness. Stinginess. Unrelenting shameless stinginess.

During the campaign, both Biden and Obama released their tax returns dating back to 2000. As far as I know, my radio show was the only media outlet to discuss all the candidates’ returns for what they reveal about character and spirit. Generous people are happier than stingy people, more compassionate than stingy people, and more selfless than stingy people. Generosity matters. It reveals who you are.

Dear Mr. President,

All of America was made aware of your 2008 tax returns this week, and at least half of America is likely to be furious.  The figures are staggering.  You earned $2.7 million in 2008, for which I congratulate you.  I have no issue with your earnings.  As a devout capitalist, I commend your ability to earn as much money as you possibly can, and I only wish I were talented enough to acquire such personal wealth.
