Stick to conservative principles
Morning Journal [Lorain, OH], by Tom Skoch

Original Article

Posted By:Harlowe, 11/11/2012 8:12:16 AM

The results of the presidential election were certainly a sharp disappointment for those on the right, but conservatives shouldn’t be looking for any non-fiscal cliffs to throw themselves from. Nor should Dems see any grand mandate for President Obama’s policies. Obama won small, and the nation and Congress remain as divided as before the election. A Republican comeback in 2014, taking control of the U.S. Senate, would change the picture greatly. By 2014, Americans will have had a much bigger taste of what a second Obama term means in their daily lives

Don´t betray us Boehner! Do not raise the debt ceiling - it is our major leverage. You will be vilified no matter how "bipartisan" you are. So for once, act on conservative principles, not your alcohol addled egotism.

2014 has a reasonable opportunity to be a repeat of 2010. The conditions and quality of life will be, as the article says, measurably worse. Also, there will be no single standard bearer who is at odds with the grass roots. Time for the Tea Party Nation and Sarah to step in.

I think he is right about the 2014 election and I also think that the Democrats will never ever find a candidate like Mr. Obama again. Certainly not Hillary! I think it´s a mistake to look at this last election as a repudiation of conservative values, we have to look at it as a popularity contest because most Obama supporters were ill informed, superficial and media hyped and he was just so hip and cool! They won´t have their savior next time because they´re are going to discover to their disappointment that he can´t run again. And after all his policies bring us to the brink of disaster, they probably won´t vote.

I am not so optimistic. Nothing has changed in the blue states and open borders are rapidly eroding Texas. Florida is gone. Conservatives may be right on principles, but they do not matter with classes, or ethnic groups. California was once blue, and is now a one party state. Without some change, just waiting for election is a false hope.

Agree with above posters. By Nov 2014 when Obamacare has already taken hold and the mandates hit the 99% crowd (who think everything is free), we will take the Senate big time. Hopefully by 2016 with a GOP prez we can repeal Obamacare like Prohibition was repealed. Or will it be too late?

Count me among the pessimists. By 2016 ObamaCare will be a permanently entrenched bureaucracy, as untouchable as the Departments of (so called) Energy and Education. People may be dissatisfied with it but they´ll be DEPENDENT on it, which will be all that matters electorally. The other side understands this. And a newly elected 2014 Republican senate will have no power to influence or counteract that developing dependency.

And by 2016 the courts will be gone, and all of you should know what that means. Any measure passed by a conservative president and congress from 2017 on which imperils the socialist status quo will be shopped through the courts and eventually up to a left wing SCOTUS, which will have its majority decision written beforehand.

It´s tempting to want to be hopeful, but we need to face the fact that we´ve past the point of no return.

Don´t double down on Sarah Palin "Let´s keep the primary going until the convention" idiocy. Mitt couldn´t define himself while he was fighting the class warfare of Newt and the strict anti abortion and gay marriage issue of the hard right.

Keep up the Mitt blame, that RINO monster, and you destroy Paul Ryan by association.
Moderate the absolutist position on abortion which was in the platform even though Mitt was not going to go into social reform. Akin and Mourdock loss needs be kept in mind.

Keep up the no gay unions and you will see gay marriage put in place which will intrude on your own rights. Instead we should go gung ho on finding common ground on gay unions--the only way to avoid gay marriage. The young do not feel anything against gay marriage and their feeling trumped any thought or reason.

Voter fraud, voter ID a major issue as is the power to sue the Constitutional law breakers of the GOP governors. Work locally to get more republicans OF ANY ILK into Congress. Look at the post election maps--vast land area is red. Gop governors and Congressional reps are doable and can be shown by their individual states economies (if survive obama)

obama maybe more interested in his jet setting, transnational legacy than in turning us commie which he in frustration said couldn´t be done from the inside and the national secrets he has not already revealed? He has to remember bin Laden´s fate if he is too blatant?

I absolutely agree with #6. We won´t do any better in 2014 than we did last week. The reason for that is there will be MORE "takers" by then. Those people are the reason Obama was re-elected. There are more of them than us and as long as they continue to get their FREE health care, housing, phones and everything else in their lives, they will continue to vote DEMOCRAT. They could care less what happens to this country. To them, they´re living large! Until THEY feel some PAIN, nothing is going to change...ever. Democrats will see to it that those "Takers" are happy and comfortable. Get used to Democrat Rule!

I´ve come around to thinking that it will be better to let the fiscal cliff happen now, rather than agree to some half-a-loaf deal with Obama.

Party of the rich: In Congress,
it´s the Democrats
Associated Press, by Stephen Ohlemacher    Original Article
Posted By: Harlowe- 3/31/2014 10:06:32 AM     Post Reply
WASHINGTON — Republicans are the party of the rich, right? It´s a label that has stuck for decades, and you´re hearing it again as Democrats complain about GOP opposition to raising the minimum wage and extending unemployment benefits. But in Congress, the wealthiest among us are more likely to be represented by a Democrat than a Republican. Of the 10 richest House districts, only two have Republican congressmen. Democrats claim the top six, sprinkled along the East and West coasts. Most are in overwhelmingly Democratic states like New York and California.

The Restore Military Religious Freedom coalition, a group of two dozen like-minded religious liberty organizations, announced Thursday that they are ready to offer assistance to any Air Force Academy cadet who faces repercussions for writing Bible verses on their hallway whiteboards. The Air Force Academy admitted Wednesday that a cadet leader had to remove a Bible verse he had displayed outside his dorm room because it offended non-Christians and could “cause subordinates to doubt the leader’s religious impartiality.” The controversy started when a cadet leader posted a passage of scripture on his whiteboard with a quote from the

CLEVELAND,Ohio-- Secretary of State Jon Husted´s re-election mantra seems to be "If at first you don´t succeed in disenfranchising voters, try and try again.

COLUMBUS, Ohio - State lawmakers in Ohio withdrew legislation Wednesday that mirrors an Arizona bill that’s come under fire for protecting those who assert their religious beliefs in refusing service to gays. Republican state Rep. Tim Derickson and Democratic state Rep. Bill Patmon issued a joint statement citing concern over the bill’s unintended consequences. “The intent of (our bill) was to ensure Ohioans’ religious freedom by protecting their ability to freely worship and preventing any laws from burdening the free exercise of religion,” their statement said. “However, with the controversy that is occurring in Arizona,

Progressives takes lessons
from ‘Downton Abbey’
Washington Post, by George F. Will    Original Article
Posted By: Harlowe- 2/13/2014 10:45:11 AM     Post Reply
Many “Downton Abbey” watchers are nostalgia gluttons who grieved when Lord Grantham lost his fortune in Canadian railroad shares. There are, however, a discerning few whose admirable American sensibilities caused them to rejoice at Grantham’s loss: “Now perhaps this amiable but dilettantish toff will get off his duff and get a job.” This drama’s verisimilitude extends to emphasizing that his lordship had a fortune to squander only because he married an American heiress. By battening on what they disdained, this republic’s commercial culture, many British aristocrats could live beyond their inherited means — actual work being, of course, unthinkable.

Ohio wind turbine project

TOLEDO, Ohio - A group of birding enthusiasts hopes a decision to halt plans for a wind turbine at an Ohio National Guard base will send a message to developers proposing other wind power projects along Lake Erie. Federal officials sent notice this past week that they are pulling back from building the proposed wind turbine just weeks after two organizations threatened to take legal action. The American Bird Conservancy and the Black Swamp Bird Observatory argued that the wind turbine would endanger migrating birds and bald eagles while also violating several federal laws designed to protect those birds.

Democratic senators to file amicus brief

In a brief to be filed with the U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday, 19 Democratic senators are siding with the Obama administration against evangelical Christian businessmen who argue that paying for their employees’ birth control, a requirement under Obamacare, violates their company’s religious freedom. The senators—five of them women—argue in their “friend of the court” brief that the owners of the Oklahoma-based crafts store chain Hobby Lobby are not exempt from the Affordable Care Act’s contraceptive mandate simply because some forms of birth control offend their religious beliefs.

Let´s get a few things straight about what Phil Robertson said that got him in trouble.

Jeb Bush to run for president in 2016.

A National Labor Relations Board official has given the green light to Northwestern University football players to form a union. The March 26 decision by the NLRB´s Chicago regional director, Peter Sung Ohr, held that scholarship football players are "employees" for purposes of federal labor law. Ohr rejected the longstanding view of Northwestern and the National Collegiate Athletic Association that players are "student-athletes" rather than employees. While Ohr´s decision is hardly the final word on this issue, it does accelerate the legal and political battle against the NCAA and its century-old amateurism rules. Is Football Academic?

Drinking Earl Grey tea could help guard against heart disease, it has emerged, after a study found that bergamot extract--a key ingredient in the hot drink--is just as effective as statins at controlling cholesterol. Scientists believe bergamot, a fragrant Mediterranean citrus fruit which gives Earl Grey tea its distinctive flavour, can significantly lower cholesterol. They say it contains enzymes known as HMGF (hydroxy methyl glutaryl flavonones) which can attack proteins in the body known to cause heart disease. The study found bergamot could even be as effective as statins, used to control cholesterol but which can have side effects in

Monday is (sort of) the deadline for Americans without employer-provided health coverage to sign up for insurance under the Affordable Care Act — the White House extended it so that anyone who’s begun to sign up by Monday can still complete the process by April 7 — and the final enrollment numbers will be an important test for a law intended to expand access for the uninsured.

The pair spent three years studying the history of the chalice and last week published a book, “The Kings of the Grail,” making their case.
