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

Original Article

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 Hopefully by 2016 with a GOP prez we can repeal Obamacare like Prohibition was repealed.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.

Internet Robber Barons
Wall Street Journal, by Karl Borden    Original Article
Posted By: Harlowe- 4/2/2014 9:37:20 PM     Post Reply
Do you remember the original robber barons? No, they were not the great American industrialists/philanthropists of the late 19th century—men who were unfairly tagged with the moniker. I mean the originals: the German barons of the 13th century who controlled the Rhine River, which was the primary channel of commerce and communications for central Europe. Their castles overlooked the river, and they exacted tribute from every passing ship. The barons ignored customary "just" tolls, charged whatever the commerce would bear, exacted payment "in kind" from cargoes, and exercised power by controlling strategic territory.

Party of the rich: In Congress,

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.

What´s going on at Air Force Academy?

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. In 2012 Husted attempted to cut early voting access only to be sued by the Obama campaign and lose in court. He´s now back again making another attempt with the help of the state legislature and Governor Kasich. (Snip) This time around, Jim Crow bird feeder Husted is hiding behind saying he´s simply adopting a bipartisan proposal by the Ohio Association of Election officials. But it´s still clear to see what his and the state legislatures

Ohio bill on religion,
gay rights is withdrawn
Associated Press, by Julie Carr Smyth    Original Article
Posted By: Harlowe- 2/27/2014 9:11:49 PM     Post Reply
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.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a
