Please enjoy these blasts from my Facebook. They annoyed a lot of liberals.

Separation of powers, limited central government, protected property and liberties. Best success formula in the history of the known universe.

Anyone who opposes it is an enemy...foreign, domestic, or domiciled at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

Maya Angelou loved guns and her right to bear them. Smoke that, Lefties.

As the tempest rose, Colorado Senator Mark Udall in a tight race to save his seat, called upon VA Secretary Shinseiki to resign a number of hours before he finally did.

What a courageous stud that Udall is.

Is it peevish to cringe when people can't or don't distinguish between Veterans Day appreciation and Memorial Day reverence?

It's Memorial Day, friends, to honor those who paid the last full measure of devotion on our behalf.

At a high school event. Sign of aging: Moms are cuter than their daughters.

Liberals, you own this disaster. A failure in every respect. He can't grow jobs. He tramples civil liberties. He alienates every nation that would be our ally. He butt kisses every nation that would do us harm.

His ideas are not historically American.

First they came for the lemonade stands...

No, Mitt! Down, Jeb! Out, Chris! Sorry, Old Dogs. In these rougher, tougher times, skills, confidence and being pampered by the Dog Show crowd aren't enough to get you the ribbon or the bone.

You also have to show the spirit and vision of Constitutional limited government that captures the enthusiasm of your base (you're all disqualified) and the zeal and instinct to apply a nice bite to posteriors that deserve it. (Chris would earn a biscuit here, but that Bridge thing was a hydrant over the line).

Members of our party have between now and 2016 to find a reformer with vision and appealing instincts, as well as grown up skills. Walker? Cruz? Paul? Someone else?

But the tired kennel hounds that can't figure out why we're mad as hell, and express it equally well in stump poetry or in Constitutional principles is not the candidate we're looking for. Move along.
