The Radical Progressive Left: We Shall Call Them Out By Name ( By Randy Hahn)

"The Democrats say that the United States has had its days in the sun, that our nation has passed its zenith. They expect you to tell your children that the American people no longer have the will to cope with their problems, that the future will be one of sacrifice and few opportunities. My fellow citizens, I utterly reject that view." – President Ronald Reagan  

The time for action is now, not later; but now. I have had all I can take of the infighting that is going on in the conservative party; it is doing nothing and getting us nowhere fast. What some of these media personalities see in bickering on Twitter all day, and night is beyond me.

The old saying “Conservatives fall in line” Liberals fall in love” Is not holding true. I don’t see ANY on the right falling in line; I see a bunch of people doing their own thing. We need all hands on deck, and I do mean all. Blue dogs, moderates and Republicans; anyone with conservative values we need to be reaching out to.

Of Guitar Strings, Cream of Wheat and Us ( By Jerry Wilson , Goldfish and clowns)

A followup to my most recent post. (Yes, more guitar talk in order to make a point.)
The type and age of guitar strings, along with how much they’ve been played, have a huge effect on how a guitar sounds, especially an acoustic one. Everyone has their own taste and preferences; mine lean toward strings with a bright, clean, deep sound. I’ve tried numerous string brands and variations over the years looking for that one best of the best for me. There was a brand made in the ’70s that I loved, the name of which regrettably slips my mind, that I absolutely loved. They came in a long cardboard sleeve rather than the usual square paper envelope, the company insisting that bending strings into a loop for insertion in said envelopes adversely affected the tone and their method of packaging was much better. Whether it was I don’t know, but I do know they sounded wonderful. I haven’t seen them in decades (ouch); I seriously doubt they’re still being made.

Oath-Breakers Among Us (By Paul H Lemmen)

There are oath breakers among us. Wherever we go, they influence our lives, our daily activities, our social intercourse.
They cause the prices of fuel, food and housing to rise precipitously. They lengthen unnecessarily the wait times to travel by air, train and even bus. Their perfidy extends into every aspect of life in America circa 2012.
By writing legislation, supporting and voting for said legislation and acting contrary to the very words of the Constitution (as well as the spirit of the Constitution) these oath breakers steal our Liberty incrementally and in doing so bind us in chains of slavery to the government, not as masters and institutors of that government.
On January 3, 1974 I swore the following oath:
“I, Paul Howard Lemmen, do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God.”

Exciting!!! #RomneyRyan2012 #TCOT – Updated ( By Zilla Stevenson at )

It is taking a lot longer than usual to come back from the latest flare up of my illness, but seeing good news when I flipped on the TV, shortly after waking up, about Mitt Romney’s VP pick had me smiling for much of the day despite my medical issues.
Here are some of my initial thoughts on the news that Mitt Romney chose Paul Ryan for his running mate, as I watched the live coverage of the announcement and then the Romney and Ryan speeches, I’m including some stuff from the A-C page, Tweets, and also a roundup of  links to awesome posts about #RomneyRyan2012 from other bloggers:
It is finally morning in America again, and as our long national nightmare draws to a close, a glorious new day is dawning.

Obama Chokes on Chick-Fil-A ( By SideTrakd)

I absolutely love Chick-Fil-A.
My original affection for the fast food chain has little to do with the recent controversy centered around the topic of traditional marriage.  We don’t have many of them in my area, so it is a treat when I get to eat there.  The food is always great, and I’m a huge fan of waffle fries..!
Yes, I am a life-long fast food junkie, and since Chick-Fil-A is rarely available to me, it has always been elevated a little higher than the other chains I frequent.
This recent controversy just elevates them higher in my eyes.  They handled the entire situation wonderfully, with grace.  By all accounts (including my own) people who went to support them during the height of all of the drama had a very pleasant experience.  The planned boycott and protests against them fizzled.  Angry activists were greeted with the same warm kindness and service standards set for those who came in support.
Now, according to Scott Rasmussen, 61% of people hold a favorable opinion of Chick-Fil-A.
