  1. Crispy Creme Christie is also upset because Rand Paul has surpassed him as the number one choice of Republicans, grassroots Republicans that is. Leave it to the extremely liberal and Democratic NYT to stir the pot in his favor.

  2. Already sent a nastygram to Cornyn, the phony conservative Texas senator, about reneging on his promise to defund Obamacare. This is one day after praising him for signing on to Senator Lee’s letter. I’m tired of being betrayed by these corporatist RINOs in the Republican party who put their big money donors and their political careers before their oath of office to protect and defend the Constitution. Everybody within the sound of my voice is going to know how Cornyn has betrayed us conservatives once again.

    • Re. immigration I called King in support, took a run at Boehner’s office asking them yet again politely WTF, and called my Senator and Congressman to reinforce position on support. Similar effort made on behalf of defunding Obamacare, including calling Cornyn’s re. his turn on defunding.

      Rubio is a signatory to the letter and he is my Senator. I haven’t figured out a tactful way to convince him that he needs to get his buddies McCain, Ayotte and Graham on board. Unless,of course, Rubio just prostituted himself for free on immigration.

      It’s not much but I am not going to stand by quietly while Republicans help Obama destroy this country.

      • Amen, gracepmc. Thank you for getting involved. If every conservative let their voices be heard by these politicians, maybe they will be influenced to change course, and stand for the values and principles the Republican party once espoused.

        • Thanks. Politicians are Pavlovian. But they need to hear the bell.

          Our responsibility doesn’t end at the ballot box. IMO. Also helps to thank them when they do the right thing.

      • I write my Democrat Senator regularly. I get the same ‘ole canned responses about her vision for the state of Missouri crap and how hard she is working for the betterment of all Missourians. Blah, blah, blah.

        Not much hope in swaying her opinion, but I’m not going to sit quietly either Grace.

        • how hard she is working for the betterment of all Missourians.


          That right there is the problem. I wish government would stop trying to improve me! Get out of my wallet and off my back, and I’ll do fine on my own!

        • Good for you. Every thing helps.

          I like to call because I hate the letters I receive (I think we all get the same on only the states names change) and second since we are paying them I want the person on the other end of the phone to explain why the Congress critter did what they did. It may not change a vote or the information may not even be accurate but at least they have to say it aloud.

  3. And who knew–at the dinner last night, Obama thanked the Muslims for all the hard work building America. Bet those Chinese who sweated over the railroads are turning over in their graves. And all those Muslim soldiers who fought with the rest of the Americans side by side , conflict by conflict. And their entrepreneurial endeavors that changed the face of America — like electricity, the assembly line, the Model T. And I especially like all the philanthropic contributions resulting in our libraries, research labs, and hospitals. Who knew?

      • Well, he did say that Ho chi Minh was “inspired” by Thomas Jefferson. There is that.

        The fact that the WH does not spontaneously combust or the pictures of past Presidents plummet to the floor everytime his Arrogance spits on the history of this country is beyond me. I thought we had safeguards for people like him.
