We did it on purpose

Casual Sundays with Mr Curry published a new post entitled “Gobsmacked” on 11/7/2012 7:42:52 AM, written by MLP. Gobsmacked Well, It’s official; I don’t know anything. I thought for sure that given such a clear choice, Americans would vote for love of country over revenge. I was wrong. I thought, that just as every presidential […]

The Art of Being a Happy Warrior

November 15, 2012 By Daniel Greenfield When we celebrate Thanksgiving in a little over a week, after being thankful for family and friends, for health and comfort, for food and shelter, it may be time to be thankful for the left. I have seen far too much despair and defeatism, too many comments that suggest there is […]

Does Obama Doom America?

By QUIN HILLYER on 11.14.12 @ 6:10AM The question so many people are asking. The refrain started many weeks, even months, before the election, but its frequency and intensity has increased nearly exponentially since Nov. 6. “I don’t know if we can survive another four years of this,” people say. Or, “do you think we can survive […]

The Left Attacking Walmart

Read this link for what actual employees say about Walmart:  http://www.indeed.com/forum/cmp/Wal–Mart/Wal-Mart-Salaries-Bonuses-Benefits/t9640 Some good, some bad – isn’t that pretty much what every employee puts up with?  Nobody is forced to work there, even if this email makes it sounds like employees are slaves.

Want to Know what the Left has in Mind on Energy?

Watch the video.  Carbon taxes, maybe Keystone Pipeline with tons of regulations, and higher costs on coal plants. http://www.eenews.net/tv/2012/11/07/ Meanwhile: OBAMA SHUTS DOWN 1.6M ACRES TO OIL SHALE DEVELOPMENT Just two days after President Obama’s re-election, the Obama Interior Department announced a plan to shut down 1.6 million acres of federal land to oil shale development. The […]

More on Agenda 21

Below is a good video explaining Agenda 21 and how the United Nations is implementing it through ICLEI.  Neither Bloomington or Normal are members of ICLEI, but they are in contact, reading their emails, and accepting federal and state money for implementation.  Reversing this process begins with education.  Some public servants may realize what “Sustainability” is, but many think […]

Oliver Stone: Untold History of the United States

Starting November 12, Showtime will air a 12 part documentary re-writing history with “what if?”.  Many Americans have already been indoctrinated to accept high gas prices, high unemployment, and green technology as a replacement energy source.  Now Stone looks at history, as The Nation magazine describes it,  without American exceptional-ism.  The Nation is far left. Quick recap: Truman should never […]

What Presidents Have Taught Us

Jimmy Carter.  America elected a peanut farmer.  Seems like a brilliant choice:  peanut farms are controlled by the USDA to prevent competition and fix prices. So, voters expected an anti-capitalist to run a capitalist country?  Gas went over $1 per gallon under Carter and we were told “suggested” temperatures to set in our houses. Then […]

Message from SEIU

This is the best explanation of the divide in the country.  SEIU believes government is the fountain which overflows with jobs.   Obviously lacking is knowledge of debt, interest rates, economics, and where real jobs come from.  Programs going bankrupt can’t be comprehended by people who believe there are no limits to spending.  These are also the […]

Divorce Agreement

WRITTEN BY YOUNG COLLEGE STUDENT The person who wrote this is a college student. Perhaps there is hope for us after all.   Dear American liberals, leftists, social progressives, socialists, Marxists and Obama supporters, et al: We have stuck together since the late 1950’s for the sake of the kids, but the whole of this […]

by REBEL PUNDIT This Saturday, the Midwest Marxist Conference was held at Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism. The event was teeming with teachers who spoke about the new found bond between the radical socialists and their Teachers Union.

School District comparisons

by Diane Benjamin From the Illinois State Board of Education website: http://www.isbe.net/ See the chart below: Unit 5 and District 87 have less Administrators per pupil, but the percent spent on Instruction is low. Where is the money going?  Graduations rates are way below surrounding districts. Leroy, Lexington, and Ridgeview have high pupil to admin percentages. […]

No Voter Fraud Here – sure

Below are links to reported voter fraud around the country. Is America now a 3rd World country? A Banana Republic? Why are Democrats opposed to voter ID?  It’s obvious. _________________________________ Add this link from Chicago: http://us2.campaign-archive2.com/?u=dc7e34c0cb16d56936e2a2607&id=fe984d967f&e=13c8501270 Think Lisa Madigan will prosecute?  Don’t be silly. _________________________________ Is there any doubt in your mind today that this is […]

Dr David Gill Concedes to Rodney Davis

Dr. Gill just sent an email stating he doesn’t have the votes to win.  The interesting part is who he thanked: I’m also grateful for the incredible support of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, each county party in the district and dozens of unions. I’ve been especially honored by the support and friendship of dedicated […]

Another Election Recap from the Left

We took down Allen West and some of his best Tea Party friends. Dear, Over a year ago, we decided to create CREDO SuperPAC in order to take down some of the most odious and extreme Tea Party Republicans in the House. People like Allen West who were just too crazy to serve in Congress […]

Message from Communist Van Jones

Keep in mind – ISU invited Van to headline the Martin Luther King dinner in January.  This treasonous Marxist is being paid over $20,000 to desecrate a dinner to honor a true patriot.     Wait! The fight isn’t over! Tuesday night was HUGE. Everyday people triumphed over big money. Years of hard work paid off. And best […]

The Agenda of the Left

This email was sent today.  It’s a glimpse of what the agenda, at least this group, is for the next 4 years. Dear Friend, Two big things happened in the last week, and they’re both going to require our attention for the next four years and beyond: the national election repudiated religious conservatives and handed Obama […]

WHAT CONSTITUTION?

November 7, 2012 By Michael Connelly I have repeatedly stated in speeches and on my radio show that many Americans are woefully unaware of what the Constitution says, and that means that if they don’t know how our government works and what rights they have then they won’t recognize what they are losing until it is too […]

Which Path?

by Diane Benjamin It’s impossible to believe slightly over half of America voted for free stuff.  High gas prices are the new normal, high electricity rates will follow with the war on coal, high unemployment will go even higher as businesses refuse to hire because of ObamaCare and over regulation.  Hope your free contraceptives make up the […]

Status Quo Ante

By: Erick Erickson Like when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object, we now know what happens when a candidate so weak anybody can beat him meets a candidate so weak he cannot beat anybody. Americans vote for the status quo. $6 billion later, Americans voted for the status quo. Karl Rove, call your donors. Republicans […]

What’s the Future of the TEA Party?

CSteven Tucker 4:16pm Nov 5 I have had reporters and other individuals ask me: “Steve, what is the future of the Tea Party movement if Mitt Romney wins?” Here is my response: The core focus of the Tea Party movement will be ridding the Republican party of the “Progressive” a.k.a. Statist poison that has infiltrated […]
