Losing the Civil War of Words
Do you often wonder why Conservatives are being effectively branded with monikers that aptly describes their accusers, like Racist! War-monger! Selfish beast! Homophobe! Misogynist! Islamophobe! Child-hater! Ignoramus! Science-hating-idiot! Religious nutcase! Redneck!…?
Here is a great top-5 list of why Republicans keep losing the propaganda war, from Pajamas Media.
5) Modern media favors perception over reality, charisma over intelligence, and personality over character. Republicans remain the party dominated by reality, intelligent reason, and high character; they lose.
4) When openly mocked and ridiculed, Republicans are stymied.
3) Many Republicans don’t understand the Left’s value system and make the horrible mistake of projecting their own conservative values onto their opponents.
2) Republicans don’t know how to use their yang in the Democrats’ yin-dominated politics. When hit with a Democrat hissy-fit, Republicans cower like whipped dogs.
1) Many Republicans have undiagnosed Stockholm Syndrome.
If you’ve got time, the whole article is a good read, from Pajamas Media.
The Frivolous Fed
Annual U.S. Tax revenue: $2.17 trillion
Federal budget: $3.20 trillion
Incremental debt this year: $1.65 trillion
Cumulative national debt: $14.27 trillion
Recent Obama/Boehner budget cuts: $38.5 million
Ah, but if you REMOVE 8 ZERO’S, it’s comparable to a modest family
Annual family income: $21,700
The family’s annual spending: $38,200
New 2011 debt on the ole credit card: $16,500
Outstanding balance on the credit card(s): $142,710
Total budget cuts: $385 (!)
Pathetic… and as predicted by Michele Bachman – we didn’t actually get any real cuts at all…. nothing.
The Wisdom of the Left
Because the Left has successfully fought the production of genetically modified (GM) foods, like vitamin A enriched rice which would prevent blindness, millions of poor children have been relegated to a lifetime of blindness. GM seeds would resist the effects of drought and disease, enabling Africa to self-sufficiently provide food to its population. But anti-GM-food groups have stopped it — just like they stopped the use of DDT, which successfully eliminated Malaria in the U.S. and Europe.
“…the left never misses a chance to brand those on the right with the most contemptible slurs they can think of. We need not descend into the gutter and trade personal insults, but we should never miss a chance to point out the vile results of the policies the Left is pushing.”

Operation Gunwalker, the rogue ATF operation to arm Mexico’s cartels, ostensibly to make a case for gun control after the cartels have wreaked sufficient havoc, extends now to three White House officials. No surprise there, but it needs to be opposed at every level.
A White House ‘Gunrunner’?
Tell your Reps that they are not fooling any of us. That this is a deceptive attempt by the Federal Government to obliterate our 2nd Amendment rights — and be sure to remind them that they swore an oath to UPHOLD THE U.S. CONSTITUTION.

Don’t Be a Boiled Frog
A little-noticed provision of the National Defense Authorization Act would put all terror suspects into immediate military custody, a controversial change that would have significant legal repercussions for the ongoing war on terror. This is disconscerting for many reasons, not the least of which is that the TEA PARTY IS LISTED AS TERROR SUSPECTS.

“This must be opposed at every level. There is a very good reason for not letting the military make civilian arrests. It is against our laws because the military is controlled by the federal government and the citizens want to be protected from the federal government. Your county sheriff is responsible for law enforcement and maintaining order. You elect them. If they overstep their authority you can un-elect them. They are members of your community and are less likely to violate your constitutional rights. If they do you have a state constitution, the US Constitution and the voting booth to fight back with. Why would anybody consider giving their rights away? This is the big one. If this is allowed you can consider the United States a socialist nation. Never to be free again.” ~John Stypick
