So, you’ve stumbled onto my humble little blog. Perhaps you are a Millenial wondering why most of your friends aren’t fully employed. Or wondering why ObamaKare is being shoved down your throat. Or why your generation is on the hook for a national debt that stands at $17 $18 Trillion and counting. Maybe you are scratching your head wondering why your President thinks Global Warming the weather is more worrisome than Islamic Terror. And perhaps you’ve started to become aware there might be something the corrupt and biased lame stream media isn’t telling you. The answer, to these and other existential questions, is ... the Left - specifically, the modern American Progressive. Think of this site as a portal to a richer understanding of this answer, a portal purposely designed with a consciously cock-eyed bent to keep it entertaining. Because the First Amendment is forever and the Internet never forgets. (Plus you better figure out FICA isn't the name of a Swedish bikini model, before she eats your entire paycheck.)

How to use the portal? You could dive into my archive*. I was most active here 2010-2012, but that matters not. How many times do I need to demonstrate the central point? To wit, the political / ideological Left is a menace to the constitutional republic and must be resisted lest the American experiment in liberty devolve into socialist dystopia. If it's the more pointed hand-to-hand combat of the comment board that whets your appetite, click the 'My Disqus Comments' widget. I continue to visit that world from time to time as a light diversion. Or you could browse through my blog roll. It's a very representative collection of center-right blogs, though hardly exhaustive. I can't do the political / ideology thing 24x7, and you probably can't either. Leave that to the hysterical, talking point chanting, mob agitating, race baiting, election stealing, gaia worshiping, straw man torching, Islamic Terrorist appeasing, organized Left (aka OFA, MSNBC, UAW, SEIU, Think Progress, Media Matters, most of legacy media, the politically correct faculty lounge, anybody who belonged to Journolist, anybody connected to Occupy Wall Street, anything funded by George Soros or Tom Steyer, their paid Internet trolls, and the rest of the usual Team Leftie suspects).

Virginia's 11th, 2010

I live in Virginia's 11th Congressional District, where the Republican primary is scheduled for June 8.  I have ample reason to be interested in this fact.  VA-11 is currently represented in Congress by the most contemptibly liberal Democrat you could imagine - Gerry Connolly.  Mr. Connolly is a freshman Representative who richly deserves to be recognized with the "one and done" award come November.

1)  First and foremost, he has a 100% Pelosi Index.

2)  He's also careless about his political associations with America's avowed enemies.

3)  And at his contemptible worst, he actually tried to have an elderly constituent arrested by the Capitol police during the peaceful November 5 Emergency House Call rally.

In short, Connolly is the very embodiment of the mindlessly ideological Progressive technocrat that was swept into office in 2008.  Connolly has to go, and I want to make sure his general election opponent is the best possible choice to send him packing.

As I have made clear during this blog project, I am philosophically conservative with strong libertarian leanings, and I have voted (R) all of my adult voting life.  But make no mistake, the voting pattern is simply a pragmatic response to the voting options that have been placed before me in each cycle at each location.  For example, had I been an adult at the time, I'm certain I would have voted James Buckley over Jacob Javits for NY Senator in '68.  More recently, I would have enthusiastically voted Doug Hoffman in NY-23, had I been eligible in that district.

I think I have also clearly (or "transparently" if you prefer) stated my opinion that the best 2010 electoral strategy for the great American Conservative majority (or TEA Party patriots, if you prefer) is to support the most solidly conservative candidate in each district; whether the party label be Republican, TEA, or Independent.  (Conservative Democrat became an extinct species around approximately 1972.)

So, what are my options this time?  Not bad, actually.  The Republican primary is a two man race between two guys who seem to be competing for the vote of guys like me.  The contestants are Keith Fimian (who lost to Connolly in the 2008 Progressive wave) and Pat Herrity (a local county supervisor).

They are remarkably similar in their policy positions Most importantly to me, both have pledged to repeal ObamaCare.  They also both present themselves as tax cutters (although this conservative blogger points out a contradiction in Herrity's record.)  Fimian is running as the "outsider" businessman with no previous political background.  But he was nominated by the party in 2008. Herrity may be the GOP insider's candidate in 2010, he's got more elected pol endorsements on his official site.   Neither candidate is anywhere near being able to match Connolly's fundraising war chest.

I don't know yet who I will vote for in the primary.  Perhaps one or the other will self-disqualify himself with a stupid ad that ticks me off.  We'll see.

But this much I am sure of:  I will vote for the winner of this primary in the general, and the loser in the primary had better not pull a Charley Crist in the general.  The objective in 2010 is to save the republic from contemptible Progressive ideologues like Connolly, and I will never forgive any Republican who puts personal gain ahead of the republic.

Update May 2, 2010: Just Because My Telephone Is a Camera Too

Share the genius :


  1. I hope either guy is able to beat the Dem in the general election. I am bothered by the Crist thing. It seems to be a common trait of RINO's.

  2. Matt - Your concern about RINOs is well founded. That's why I've advised patriots to determine who is running as the solid conservative in their specific race(s) - Republican or otherwise - and get behind the conservative candidate regardless of party label.

    Capitol Hill could benefit from the refreshing arrival of a solidly conservative majority with more than one party label. I'm quite confident in John Boehner's ability to convince the new arrivals to vote him the Speakers gavel, and caucus with him, rather than Nanny Pelosi ....
