John Hawkins helps you self-diagnose 


“With apologies to Jeff Foxworthy, you just might be a liberal if…

1) You get extremely upset about the idea of the government coming into our bedrooms unless it’s to give everyone free birth control.

2) You believe that people who hold the exact same position on gay marriage that Barack Obama did last year are horrible bigots who are unfit to hold office.

3) You think that Mitt Romney, who has raked leaves for old people, helped a dying child with his will, and paid for college educations for kids who became quadriplegics in a car wreck, is less compassionate than Barack Obama who makes fun of kids in the Special Olympics and made his own brother beg other people to get the money to pay for his child’s hospital bill.”

Over the last few months, it has been absolutely stunning to see Mitt Romney, of all people, portrayed as some sort of greedy, ruthless, unfeeling corporate raider who plows over everyone who gets in his way so he can make a few dollars more. Of all the criticisms you could aim at Mitt Romney, there is none that has less validity than that one. In fact, the vast majority of people who read this column — whether they’re liberal, conservative, or moderate — probably don’t personally know a single person who has proven to be more generous and compassionate than Mitt Romney. Yes, really. It’s okay if you’re skeptical — but, you won’t be after you finish reading this column.

” The War on Drugs: Because Prohibition Worked So Well “

“Forty years ago, the United States locked up fewer than 200 of every 100,000 Americans. Then President Nixon declared war on drugs. Now we lock up more of our people than any other country — more even than the authoritarian regimes in Russia and China.

A war on drugs — on people, that is — is unworthy of a country that claims to be free.

Unfortunately, this outrage probably won’t be discussed in Tampa or Charlotte.”

Ann Romney Dazzles in Tampa

  “Romney spoke directly to a struggling America. She told them personal stories about her struggles with breast cancer, living with MS and raising five children. She spoke of the love her husband has given her through more than 40 years of marriage.

“I want to talk not about what divides us, but what holds us together as an American family. I want to talk to you tonight about that one great thing that unites us, that one thing that brings us our greatest joy when times are good, and the deepest solace in our dark hours. Tonight I want to talk to you about love,” Romney said. “I want to talk to you about the deep love I have for a man I met at a dance.” “


25 Examples Of What America Would Be Like If Everyone Was A Liberal

  “1) America’s credit rating would get so low that it would force President Dennis Kucinich to petition the UN for donations to pay for Social Security, Medicare, and his newly implemented 350 weeks of unemployment plan.

2) There wouldn’t be a Pledge of Allegiance said in schools, no one would sing the Star Spangled Banner before any sporting event, and no one would celebrate the 4th of July.

3) Gas would cost $9 a gallon. Liberals would consider this a plus because it would cause more people to get tax credits to buy government subsidized $40,000 electric cars.

4) Seven year olds would be able to vote. Free candy and endorsements from cartoon characters would become a staple of campaigning.

5) The corporate tax rate would be 15 percent higher, most American workers would be unionized and tax rates would soar. As a result, our economy would be stagnant and our unemployment rate would permanently be in the 10-20% range.”

It’s not really outsourcing when you despise America to begin with , is it ?

  It becomes increasingly apparent that Obama’s absolute secrecy regarding his educational records is necessary to cover up the fact that he got foreign exchange student funding .

” The left continues to pile on Mitt Romney for allegedly outsourcing jobs while at Bain Capital.

Yet the mainstream media seem curiously uninterested in reporting on “outsourcing” by the Obama Administration, which has (1) outsourced stimulus monies to create jobs in foreign nations, (2) outsourced U.S. foreign policy to U.N. and (3) outsourced our kids and grandkids financial future to pay for his unprecedented spending binge. “

Star Parker has more on the Obama drive to put us all on the government teat .

  “According to the Congressional Budget Office, 18 million Americans received SNAP benefits in 2000. By 2011, this had grown to 45 million, one in seven Americans.

Liberals tells us that this program’s mind-boggling growth is explained by our foundering economy.

But, as Republican Sen. Jeff Sessions of Alabama points out, spending on this program increased 100 percent from 2001 to 2006, a period over which there was no increase in the rate of unemployment.”

” 7 Examples of People Who Are Not Victims

Jun 19, 2012
   No matter how unfairly you’re treated specifically because you’re a white male, a Christian, a conservative, or a Republican, very few people are going to accept the idea that you’re a victim. That may be unfair, but on the whole, it’s a good thing. America is already awash in people who falsely believe they’re victims and it’s not a pretty sight to see: the blaming, the whining, the mediocrity, the sea of jackasses who believe their horrific behavior is justified because they’re “victims.” It’s time they learned that they’re not victims in any real sense ”

   Can you guess who he lists among his non “victims” ?  As well informed as our readers are , we doubt John’s candidates will come as a surprise but you never go wrong spending a few minutes with him .

The only “responsible” republicans , as far as the media is concerned , are the squishes that make up that species known here as RINOsaurs .

   Such a terrible spectacle to watch as the left and their toadies in the MSM lose control of the narrative . Ha !

” The mainstream media is awash with criticism of Republicans, but it always denounces the wrong people. If you listen to the media, you’d think the GOP is being wrecked by people like Jim DeMint, Allen West, Sarah Palin, and the Tea Party. In other words, the real problem with the Republican Party is supposed to be the responsible conservatives who put their country first, want to keep us from going broke, and actually represent the people who elected them. Wrong answer, buddy. You want to know the types of Republicans that are hurting the GOP? ”

Of course you do so read on and let John Hawkins enlighten you .

Obama’s Tin Gold Ear …

Michael Barone is always worth listening to .

“Who does Barack Obama listen to?

  Not Republican politicians. Evidently weeks go by between his conversations with Speaker John Boehner, who determines what legislation comes to the House floor.

   Not Democratic politicians. We have it on good authority that he seldom talks to Democratic members of Congress. Lyndon Johnson used to be on the phone constantly, cajoling and inveigling but also on the alert for shifts in opinion. “

Larry Elder at Townhall

“President Barack Obama’s re-election turns on his ability to convince voters that 1) Obama inherited a “Great Recession,” 2) every “independent” economist supported the “stimulus,” 3) “bipartisan” economists agree that Obama’s stimulus worked, and 4) as actor Morgan Freeman puts it, racist Republicans say, “Screw the country … we’re going to do whatever we can to get this black man outta here” — nothing to do with deeply held policy differences.”

Here’s to hoping the snake oil salesman has lost his touch and the kool-aid is about gone .

   Fool me once …. Shame on you …. Fool me twice …. Shame on …. US

2) Obviously Republicans hate  women like Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann! Wait, bad examples…uhm, let’s see, they kill female babies, put women’s faces on pinatas and beat them, and degrade women by drawing them with penises in their mouth! That’s still us? Geeze, uh…war on women! Move on to the next item! Hurry, hurry!

Be sure and check out the others . See if you recognize any of them .

John Hawkins of Rightwing News has a fine post today over at Townhall on some of the reasons behind the aforementioned decline . It is well worth your time .

Here’s a sample :

” 3) A Government That Is Far Too Large: The Founding Fathers were small government fanatics who didn’t have an income tax and were deeply suspicious of government power. That proves their wisdom because as government grows larger and more powerful, the people grow smaller, weaker, and more dependent. ”

  He includes a very prescient quote from one of our wisest founding fathers , Samuel Adams :

  “A general dissolution of principles and manners will more surely overthrow the liberties of America than the whole force of the common enemy. While the people are virtuous they cannot be subdued; but when once they lose their virtue then will be ready to surrender their liberties to the first external or internal invader.”

See what you think .

You might want to stop in and take part in a ” Townhall on Terror ” Make yourself heard .

  “In its own words, the Muslim Brotherhood is engaged in a “grand Jihad” with the intention of “eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within.” Like it or not, we are in a showdown with evil. But what exactly is the nature of the threat we face and how can we best confront it?”

Fritz Pfister at Townhall asks : Are People Really That Stupid?

  I would put forth the proposition that the past three years have demonstrated beyond a shadow of a doubt that the American voters are as stupid as they come .

  Buying into the ” Hope and Change ” meme proves this isn’t the America I grew up in . Americans don’t ” Hope ” . They do . Relying on hope by it’s very nature implies a helplessness on the hopey’s part that to me is antithetical to the American can-do spirit .
   We don’t hope , we roll up our sleeves , we pitch in and we GET THINGS DONE .  We don’t wait for a Savior . My how far we’ve fallen . The Founders must be so proud .

  Cal Thomas :

“Those who believe the war against radical Islamists is over never really believed we were fighting one. They have been in denial from the start. Each time they have been proven wrong — the land for peace formula between Israel and her enemies is just one example among many — they have simply moved on to the next level of denial. Now they have reached rock bottom with nowhere else to go and are telling us we can live with Islamism.”
Funny , but if the war is over why do we need this or to put up with this or this or this or this or this ?
