Y'all don't count your chickens yet. Let's see how they come out of the shell first. In essence, wait till the votes are in to see if they do what they say.
There are a number of things broken in DC and if I had to prioritize the list I would put in the top three the out of control federal agencies. I would love to see a Congress and a President go back to the charter of each agency and mandate that each return to its original mission. Also, included would be a mandatory cost/benefit analysis of any action costing over five million dollars. Each agency would also sunset after 10 years and would require reauthorization by a vote of 2/3 of each house. No agency would have its budget increased beyond what is the rate of inflation. I'll be serving free bubbleup and rainbow stew in my backyard when this comes to pass.
It's sad how the Democratic party thinks its black and Hispanic supporters are too stupid, lazy and shiftless to be able to get a free ID. Student ID's don't count because they do not show proof of Texas residency...only that they go to school in Texas. I wish we could get a president and Congress with kahones large enough to eliminate the "inferior" courts as laid out in their duties under the Constitution and reconstitute them with term-limited judges. No judge, and that includes the SCOTUS, should be serving for life. Read Mark Levin's book if you want some educating on this topic.
I don't know what makes people think Nunn has a chance here in Georgia. She ain't. We have a bunch of yankees coming in here all the time and we have plenty of Democrats (sorry for the repetition) but we ain't that overrun with the left yet. They're coming down here and telling us we need to do it like they do up nawth but so far they ain't enough of them here...gettin' closer though. Sherman was bad for Georgia, but Carrier inventing the air conditioning was worse.
I would love to be a pastor in Houston. I would put out an ad in the paper and also a personal letter to the mayor and city council..."If you really want to hear a sermon that is anti-homosexual, anti-tolerant, and anti-diversity supported by the Bible be at my church this Sunday. And, by the way, bring some friends because I'm sure they will like to hear and benefit from the word of God. God Bless you!" Then it would have my name and church address in big, bold letters.

What About Bobby Jindal?

The polls show how screwed up popularity is. I don't like Christie, the Pauls, Bush, Santorum, or Huckabee. Rubio showed that by becoming a member of the "Gang of 8" that he is easily eaten by the establishment by trying too much to compromise what should be compromised. He was like a lamb to the slaughter. Maybe after some more seasoning. The problem is we are starting to get more senators who think they should be president.(I've heard it said that every morning when a senator is shaving he sees a future president in the mirror.) All presidents who were senators did not do a good job for the country.
I just looked up two words in the dictionary---shameless and hypocritical-- and lo and behold Obama's picture was next to each of them as an example.

How much would have the free flow of commerce, especially oil which fuels our economy, if we had not kept the sea lanes open by a forward defensive posture? We cannot retreat to the borders of our physical country. Like it or not, the United States is the glue which holds the freedom of the world together.

The teachers of today and for the previous generation have been indoctrinated through the use of Howard Zinn's book, "Peoples History of the the United States" which is totally left wing and is more opinion than historical balance. It focuses nearly totally on the negative aspects of American History and very little on the positive, glorious aspects. As a matter of fact, he starts all the way back to the evils of Columbus to show how bad the European invasion of the wonderful, peaceful "new world" was before the coming of the white man. If you want to learn how strongly this widely read, used, and recommended book is, go and purchase the paperback version for $19.95 and educate yourself as to what our children in high school and college are being indoctrinated with.

Did those teachers invite authority figures equal to themselves into the classroom to give the conservative side of the issue or was it incumbent upon the students to present the conservative side? If there were no conservative adults to counterpoint the teacher it was not balanced.
How would the commission had ruled if the KKK had come along and wanted T-Shirts saying "Please attend our anti-Ni**er Festival"? Think the business would have got into trouble for refusing that?
