Where did they come from?

The top referring sites in 2010 were facebook.com, mail.yahoo.com, greatoutdoorsacademy.wordpress.com, en.wordpress.com, and thegreatilluminator.com.

Some visitors came searching, mostly for unemployment, retarded animals, cosby show, the cosby show, and butts.

Drill For Oil Everywhere!

Here is a video from a local TV station featuring Jamie Allman, a popular radio talk show host in St. Louis.

I say drill everywhere possible with the current technology (that uses very little land.)

Of course, this is just my opinion.

Those Crazy Republicans

Crowder and Zo are at it again. This time they tackle the Republican stereotype weaved by all those lazy people on the left.  You know, all those fair minded people like…Keith Olbermann…Rachel Maddow…Chris Matthews…etc…etc..etc. that nobody actually watches. 

After all we’re just all a bunch of red neck hicks in our pickup trucks chewing tobacco and having fun with farm animals. 

 

Of course, this is just my opinion.

Silly Canadians, America is for Americans

Just kidding, I love Canada.  Tim Horton’s Coffee, Maple Syrup, Hockey, Gravy on their Fries…what’s not to love!

This video is from Steven Crowder.  Best stuff out there outside of those geniuses at The Onion.

I’ll Have Tea With My Revolution

taxday4What a great day Tax Day was!  In my 40 years on this earth, not sure I’ve actually said that statement on April 15.

 

I was fortunate to be one of the 10,000 or so people that attended the Tax Day Tea Party in Downtown St. Louis.  What a great way to spend a couple of hours – with people who were actually courteous and genuine.  No cars set on fire – no windows broken – no violence.  What a change from the typical liberal protest rally!

 

I have found some great video from before the event and after the event along with the St. Louis media coverage.

This is how the St. Louis media reported the event.

A parting picture from the St. Louis Protest is this picture of an “Anti-Protester”.  We found out on Thursday morning that this was one of the local radio personalities, Jamie Allmon, in disguise.  He wanted to see how the people at the event would treat him.  Not surprisingly, they treated him very well.  All I can say is Awesome!

The Main Event – Reagan Vs. Obama

I came across a great article on RealClearPolitics.com comparing Reagan and Obama. I can’t say it any better.

The actual copy of this “debate” is located on their website at http://www.realclearpolitics.com/articles/2009/02/the_gipper_vs_obama.html. Chilling.

Of course, that’s just my opinion

500 Million Jobs Lost???

Maybe it was a gaff. Maybe it was sheer stupidity. Maybe a combination of both.

Nancy Pelosi commented during a press conference about the “Spendulus Bill” that if nothing is done, 500 million jobs would be lost. I was shocked that I would actually loose my current job nearly 1 1/2 times. How can that be?

Last time I checked there were roughly 300 million men, women and children in the US. Maybe Madam Speaker is counting pets and farm animals in that figure. If former President Bush would have said something like that he would have been skewered – and justly. As of now, you kind of have to search for this news. Interesting…

Of course, that’s just my opinion.
