Blood On Our Hands

Thursday, March 31st, 2005

No need for a link here, as anyone who is reading this is sufficiently news-savvy to know that Terri Schiavo has died. To all who helped the Schiavo family, with prayers, with volunteer hours, with lobbying, thanks. Much can be learned about dealing with suffering with grace and dignity from the Schindler family, including Terri. […]

Patches Does the Right Thing

Wednesday, March 30th, 2005

After Rep. Jim Langevin took a pass at the Democratic nomination in Rhode Island, Democrats tried to get Rep. Patrick Kennedy to reconsider. Today, Kennedy dashed those hopes. Saying that he could do more good for Rhode Island on the House Appropriations Committee, Kennedy dropped out for the second time. My disdain for the Kennedys […]

Plowed?

Wednesday, March 30th, 2005

In a story that surfaced a few weeks ago (sorry, missed this one), Maine State Rep. Brian Duprey announced that he is considering challenging RINO Sen. Olympia Snowe. Snowe has nearly achieved the status of “institution” in Maine, but she has also achieved the status of thorn in the side for conservatives. Unfortunately for Sen. […]

Happy Easter

Dead Heat

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2005

After getting a bump from the speculation about and announcement of his candidacey, Bob Casey, Jr.’s numbers have come back down to earth. A new poll shows that Casey’s lead is now a single point, statistically insignificant. These numbers are no big surprise to anyone who has been paying attention to the race, as it […]

Feminazis Get Their Way

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2005

After screaming bloody murder (note the irony), feminazis got their way today. Rep. Jim Langevin (D-RI) announced that he will not enter the Democratic Primary to challenge RINO Sen. Lincoln Chafee. Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid and DSCC Chairman Chuck Schumer came under heavy fire from their party’s infanticide supporters for supporting Rep. Jim Langevin […]

Ending Judicial Tyranny

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2005

Congress should not have had to act to save Terri Schiavo’s life. The Florida legislature should not have to act to save Terri Schiavo’s life. Both have already instituted laws to do so, but the laws of both have been ignored by judges with an agenda.
This is not the first example of such behavior. To […]

Congress Does the Right Thing

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2005

Last night, the House passed a compromise bill that gave the Schindler family standing in federal court. The day before, the Senate passed the same bill by unanimous consent. Now the case has gone to federal court and met with that court’s equivalent of Judge Greer. The new judge has openly spoken out about the […]

Hope for Terri?

Sunday, March 20th, 2005

At the eleventh hour, it appears that the House and Senate have finally reached a compromise on legislation to reign in an out of control judge who has ignored the facts (Terri is not in a persistent vegetative state), the allegations (Terri was likely abused by her husband Michael), and the law (federal law prohibits […]

Kennedy Gets Company

Sunday, March 20th, 2005

Technically, Rep. Mark Kennedy already had competition for the Senate seat being opened up by Sen. Mark Dayton. Technically. Now, however, serious candidates are stepping forward. Child-safety advocate Patty Wetterling and Hennepin County Attorney Amy Klobuchar took steps toward entering the race. Both have natural constituencies from their legal and child-safety backrounds and both come […]
