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.

For Christmas, I Want Balanced Coverage of Corrupt Democrats

Below is an article from STLToday.com written by one of my favorite radio hosts, Jamie Allman.  It makes a lot of sense, although I doubt Republicans will get the suggestions.  One can only hope.

By Jamie Allman

JALLMAN@STLEMMIS.COM

As common-sense conservatives get ready to plow head first into the coming year with visions of bad poll numbers for President Barack Obama dancing in their heads, it would be wise to remember the Rev. Jeremiah Wright.

No, not because he will be useful as a campaign target again. Because going after him was the worst mistake conservatives made in the run up to the last election.

Chasing monsters only will kill conservative chances again.

Make no mistake: Rev. Wright spoke terribly about America and had all the trappings of a land mine for candidate Obama. The guilt-by-association thing seemed like a tactical winner.

But to move on and win in the future, conservatives must ask themselves: How’s that Rev. Wright thing working out?

The fact is that there is only one man who wants to take control of your health care, who plans a business- and job-killing carbon tax, who has an eye on grabbing more of your tax dollars and who is pushing for a green economy that in all likelihood won’t include you.

There’s only one man who is sending housewives, retirees and average Joes into the St. Louis streets in fury.

There’s only one man who is considered to have it out for the republic as we know it.

And that man is not Rev. Jeremiah Wright.

I remember the cry among some of my pundit colleagues: “President Obama must distance himself from Rev. Wright!”

Why would he do that?

Rev. Wright provided the perfect screen, the perfect distraction for candidate Obama to blast past the goal line. If I didn’t know any better, I’d imagine Rev. Wright was a creation of a Democratic Karl Rove.

As long as conservative media leaders were barking about Rev. Wright, they weren’t paying attention to, oh, say, candidate Obama’s website, which contained in plain view the blueprint for everything President Obama is attempting to do now. As long as candidate Obama was giving “major” speeches about race and his toxic pastor, he was able to shield his plan to pursue a lot of what many Americans are really upset about now.

It’s quite a genius strategy: When you want the dog to stop growling and barking, you throw him some red meat. Boy did many of us dig in!

Big mistake.

In the future, we need to never forget that Americans, as a rule, like their meat thoroughly cooked. If you have an issue with someone, the issue better be about that someone and not someone else nearby. Nefarious associations, while telling, never are enough to convict in the minds of most Americans — who seem to have a built-in aversion to guilt by association.

Guilt-by-association tactics almost always backfire because the target of the association almost always becomes a victim in the eyes of Americans, even conservative Americans. It’s always an indication that the other side simply doesn’t seem to have enough to convict the real culprit.

Common-sense conservatives have a perfect opportunity now because they have the ears of even some conservative Democrats who are rethinking their votes. These Democrats were blinded, too, by artificial distractions. And if you told most folks a year ago that normal average everyday not-so-politically active people would be hitting the streets to protest legislation of all things, you would have been written off as crazy.

Given all that, conservatives would be crazy not to focus on what’s in front of them. They should not be tempted ever again to create amateur horror films about a meaningless crony.

Those who spent months and months huffing and puffing about Rev. Wright and his terrible sermons need only to ask one critical question: How much is Rev. Wright affecting your life now?

I would agree. Good points.

Of course, this is just my opinion.

Obama Has Difficultly Addressing Ft. Hood Shooting

It’s always good to see that our President comes right out and talks about a horrific tragedy.  It took 1:41 to actually get to the point of commenting on the Fort Hood shooting.

One of our great commentators here in St. Louis, Jamie Allman, opined that it was good for him (President Obama) that he was not reading books to school children.  It might have really hit the fan then!

Of course, this is just my opinion.

Companies Shaken Down by Al Sharpton and His National Action Network

alsharptonThis list is directly from The Electric Stove from Allman in the Morning on 97.1 FM Talk:

Al Sharpton’s platform for his assault on Rush Limbaugh’s NFL ownership bid was the National Action Network (NAN), which is bankrolled by corporate America.

The following companies were identified this year by NAN as sponsors:

American Honda, Anheuser Busch, Colgate-Palmolive, Comcast, Entergy, Ford Motor Company, Home Depot, Johnson & Johnson, Macy’s, PepsiCo, Pfizer and Wal-Mart. Sponsorship reportedly cost $50,000.

 I doubt all of the companies support the actions of Al Sharpton, but they might want to know if their customers object to this support.  I’m sure they throw him some money just to get him to go away – kind of like what parents do with their kids from time to time, “fine, have a piece of candy and go away for five minutes.”

Of course, this is just my opinion.

Do Words Matter Mr. Obama?

 One of our great local radio hosts, Jamie Allman, from 97.1 FM Talk, put up a well done video that I just had to share.

It’s good to see we haven’t had the massive loony protests calling President Obama war monger or worse.  For the most part it has been pretty peaceful and pointed.  We don’t have to like Mr. Obama and his direction he is taking the country, but a little civil discourse is healthy for the country. 

Like Dalton says, I want you to be nice until it’s time to not be nice.  I think we’re heading towards the not nice phase. 

You can catch Allman in the Morning online here.

Of course, this is just my opinion.

Is Russ Carnahan Really This Stupid?

The Health Care debate has definitely heated up over the congressional recess.  St. Louis has become a hot bed of activity since the beating of a conservative at a recent event by members of the SEIU union that attended the event in support of Rep. Carnahan.  One blog called these guys Union Thugs, I think I agree with that sentiment.

On Friday of this week, Jamie Allman, a local morning talk show host from 97.1 FM Talk, attended a secret press conference where Rep. Carnahan blamed the right-wing extremists for causing problems at his Town Hall event.  When pressed by Mr. Allman, Rep. Carnahan had no real answers and slinked back into political mode.  I actually thought Rodney King was going to pop up and shout, “Can’t we all just get along?”

From The Gateway Pundit:

Carnahan first claimed that the SEIU members may not have beenhis supporters.  Carnahan announced this morning that the GOP was behind the violence.  He also accused Minority Leader John Boehner of instigating the violence(?)

So Rep. Carnahan, you have no idea that a man, a black man, was beaten by the SEIU “Security Force” that you brought in to “control” the unruly crowd.  Are you blind or just plain stupid.  I wonder what would have happened if there were conservatives beating a black member of the SEIU – or any other citizen.  I’ll tell you what would happen, it would be on every newspaper from here to Oxnard.  As it stood on Friday, they had to have a “secret” press conference.

My only regret is I don’t live in your district so I have no say-so in your demise.

Of course, this is just my opinion
