Alternate Reality: Dem. Senator: Obama Led SEALs Mission to Kill Bin Laden

"And let's not forget that this is the commander in chief who finally led the mission that brought Osama bin Laden to justice," said New Hampshire, revisionist Jeanne Shaheen. And the sycophants cheered for their packaged faux hero.

The Progressively Dishonorable Harry Reid

The legacy Harry Reid leaves for himself and the Progressive movement, which is systematically pissing on the constitution and destroying this nation's honor, is laid bare. The Senate should consider charges, sanctions and removal from a leadership role for Reid's blatant violation of federal election laws by openly electioneering and campaigning for Obama on the Senate floor. A complaint can be filed with the Federal Election Commission  for Reid's wanton disregard for the rule of law. The point may be moot come November however, as the Party of Dishonor may very well be relegated to minority status.

Media, Progressives Quick to Blame; Effusively Pushing for Rigid Gun Controls

Within hours, following the horrific Colorado theater shooting that killed 12, injuring 58, progressives are just giddy blaming evil conservatives and exploiting the  massacre by a disjointed coward to push gun control.

West: 'Every American Should Be Mandated To Buy A Glock 9mm'

Md., Va. residents deeper in debt than most Americans

The greater the government imposition on the private sector, with laws and favored status for the government class, the greater its rate of inflation and consumer debt. In Maryland an educator or employee of the public school system is provided free college tuition for all their children. Tuition rates for the rest of the student body must make up that difference. Maryland is a government state with 80 percent of its residents either employed or dependent on local, state or federal compensation, gift or graft. Innumerable benefits are bestowed upon government's labor force, its consultants, grifters and grafters, driving the cost-of-living index through the roof in every state where government has become the number one employer or service provider. The Examiner breaks down the numbers...

Residents of Maryland and Virginia are deeper in debt than most of the rest of the nation, a new report shows.

Ponder This

Columnist Andrew McCarthy writes on what may be the most overlooked question regarding the upcoming presidential election, rather succinctly...

"...if Mitt wins the nomination, as seems very likely, I will enthusiastically support his candidacy. For my friends who have hesitation on that score, I'd just ask you to keep four things in mind:

1.. Justice Scalia just turned 78

2.. Justice Kennedy will turn 78 later this year

3.. Justice Breyer will be 76 in August

4.. Justice Ginsburg turned 81 about a week ago.

We wish them all well, of course, but the brute fact is that whoever we elect as president in November is almost certainly going to choose at least one and maybe more new members of the Supreme Court — in addition to hundreds of other life-tenured federal judges, all of whom will be making momentous decisions about our lives for decades to come.

If you don't think it matters whether the guy making those calls is Mitt Romney or Barack Obama, I think you're smokin' something funky...."

So for anybody who is thinking of not voting because your favorite didn't get nominated, or writing in a candidate who can't win... Imagine this:
