Another Pickup!

***Dan Sullivan (R) wins the Senate race in Alaska!

We need as many as we can get. Hopefully we'll pick up another one in Louisiana in December.

***Gallup: GOP Congress more popular than Obama. Yet they're still trying to spin the drubbing Democrats got last Tuesday as "not that big a deal."


***This is nuts! To appease Muslims, Christmas and Jewish holidays have been dropped from this school's calendar. Will somebody tell me why we're so afraid of offending people who want us all dead?

The Montgomery County Board of Education on Tuesday voted to strip the names of Christian and Jewish holidays from its school calendar amid complaints from the parents of Muslim children seeking recognition for Islamic holidays.
The schools still will be closed on the holidays, but the board voted 7-1 to move the religious references from the calendar.
The surprise development came after Muslim community leaders complained that the Eid al-Adha holiday was not getting equal recognition on next year’s school calendar as the Jewish holiday of Yom Kippur, which both will fall on Sept. 23.

 What a bunch of cowards. These are American holidays. If they don't like it, TOUGH. This kind of stuff burns me up.


Thanksgiving and Black Friday just weren't enough.
With a string of retailers pushing their sales ever earlier on Thanksgiving Day, Wal-Mart is shifting gears this year by extending its Black Friday discounts through the entire weekend.
Still, that's not to say the retailer will miss out on the Thanksgiving buzz. Wal-Mart will once again kick off its Black Friday deals at 6 p.m. Thursday, in line with competitors such as Target and Sears, and one hour later than Best Buy, Toys R Us and J.C. Penney.

***Christian school's ROTC attacked - but we're appeasing Muslims right and left. I just don't get it...

***From Chik-fil-A to the U.S. Senate.


















By now you likely know that last Tuesday night, South Carolina’s Tim Scott became the first African-American Republican from the South to be elected to the United States Senate since Reconstruction.
Logic dictates that he won the seat because more people voted for him than voted for his opponent.
But there’s more to the story.
Isn’t there always?
How Tim got to the fateful night of November 4th is a tale almost too good to be true.
But it isn’t.
Flashback to 1972.
President Nixon would embark on his famous trip to Communist China, months before winning a landslide reelection. The war in Vietnam was still raging red hot, eleven members of the Israeli Olympic team were massacred in Munich during the Summer Olympics and the United States and the USSR signed the SALT 1 treaty attempting to limit nuclear arms.
But in South Carolina, a seven-year-old’s whole world was falling apart.
Tim Scott’s parents had just divorced. His father, a member of the Air Force, was no longer part of his life. Destitute, along with his mother and brother, the young family moved in with his grandparents. There they lived in a two bedroom home, with his grandparents in one and the two boys and mother in the other.
As Tim tells the story, his grandfather would come to the breakfast table each morning with a cup of coffee and the newspaper. For the next thirty minutes his mother’s father would pour over every inch of the news. It made an impression on the young boy, that education was important, that learning about current events was a critical component of a person’s responsibility as a citizen.

***Okay...I about broke the glass top on my desk, but I killed the flippin' gnat that's been flying around my head for the last hour. I think that deserves a Starbucks...

She's Not Spoiled at All



***Have a great day!
