Red States Rule!

***The top 10 states in economic outlook:

  • 1. Utah - Republican Governor Gary Herbert
  • 2. North Dakota - Republican Governor Jack Dalrymple
  • 3. Indiana - Republican Governor Mike Pence
  • 4. North Carolina - Republican Governor Pat McCrory
  • 5. Arizona - Republican Governor Doug Ducey
  • 6. Idaho - Republican Governor Butch Otter
  • 7. Georgia - Republican Governor Nathan Deal
  • 8. Wyoming - Republican Governor Matt Mead
  • 9. South Dakota - Republican Governor Dennis Daugaard
  • 10. Nevada - Republican Governor Brian Sandoval

Can't get much clearer than that.

***Iran creating Suicide Drones which will threaten Israel, U.S.

Iran has placed an “explosive emphasis” in putting military surveillance and attack drones into the sky, including “suicide” aircraft that increase risks for Israel and for U.S. ships in the Persian Gulf, according to a new U.S. Army analysis.
The Iranian army is spearheading the drive for a fleet of explosive-mounted killer drones. It tested them in December against ship targets near the Strait of Hormuz, the chokepoint for maritime traffic in and out of the Gulf.
The implication is clear: The hard-line Shiite-dominated regime has long threatened to close the Strait of Hormuz, through which about 20 percent of the world’s oil is transported daily. The live-fire test/exercise shows that kamikaze drones are in the Iranian war plan.
Doesn't it make you feel all warm and safe to know that Obama and Kerry are in charge of dealing with these people?

Yesterday, up on the stair,
I saw a rape that wasn't there,
It wasn't there again today!
Oh why, oh why did it go away ...
From the Duke lacrosse team, the Columbia mattress girl and the University of Virginia, the left has not been able to produce one actual rape on a college campus. It's beginning to look as if the rape of the Sabine women never happened, either. Someone's going to have to go back and investigate.
The big finale to the latest college rape fable, Rolling Stone's whimsical "A Rape on Campus," about a fraternity gang rape at the University of Virginia that never happened, is the Columbia Journalism Review's "investigation" of the story, released Sunday night. It's more of a house of mirrors than a finale, inasmuch as CJR's report is so preposterous that it demands its own investigation.

The press is a joke anymore.

A Godfather in the mob finds out that his bookkeeper has stolen ten million bucks.

This bookkeeper happens to be deaf, so the Godfather brings along his attorney, who knows sign language. The Godfather asks the bookkeeper: "Where is the 10 million bucks you embezzled from me?" The attorney, using sign language, asks the bookkeeper where the 10 million dollars is hidden.

The bookkeeper signs back: "I don't know what you are talking about." The attorney tells the Godfather: "He says he doesn't know what you're talking about."

That's when the Godfather pulls out a 9 mm pistol, puts it to the bookkeeper's temple, cocks it and says: "Ask him again! The attorney signs to the underling: "He'll kill you for sure if you don't tell him!"

The bookkeeper signs back: "OK! You win! The money is in a brown briefcase, buried behind the shed in my cousin Enzo's backyard in Queens!"

The Godfather asks the attorney: "Well, what'd he say?"

The attorney replies: "He says you don't have the guts to pull the trigger."

***Democrats are proving their unwillingness to follow the Constitution.

 Liberal Democrats are pushing back against a bill that would allow Congress to weigh in on a developing deal with Iran over its nuclear capabilities, agreeing with President Barack Obama that the legislation would jeopardize the diplomatic process.

"Diplomacy has taken us to a framework agreement founded on vigilance and enforcement, and these negotiations must be allowed to proceed unencumbered," said House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi in a statement on Wednesday, reports The Hill.

Pelosi's statement appeared to be coordinated with an announcement minutes later by a fellow California Democrat, Sen. Barbara Boxer, who urged members of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee to postpone a vote next week on a bill proposed by Sens. Bob Corker, R-Tennessee, and Robert Menendez, D-New Jersey.
Corker, who chairs the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, wants Congress to be allowed 60 days to review the outline of the deal with Iran and freeze sanctions relief against Tehran. Further, the bill allows legislators to vote on the deal.

 Stupid people - I would think even they would understand how important this is.

***Scootin' for a snack...


The signature of John Hancock on the Declaration of Independence is the most flamboyant and easily recognizable of all. It is perhaps no surprise that the story of his part in the revolution is equally engaging. Few figures were more well known or more popular than John Hancock.
He played an instrumental role, sometimes by accident, and other times by design, in coaxing the American Revolution into being.
Born in Braintree, Massachusetts in 1737, he was orphaned as a child, and adopted by a wealthy merchant uncle who was childless. Hancock attended Harvard College for a business education and graduated at the age of 17. He apprenticed to his uncle as a clerk and proved so honest and capable that, in 1760, he was sent on a business mission to England.
There he witnessed the coronation of George III and engaged some of the leading businessmen of London. In 1763, his uncle died and John Hancock inherited what was said to be the greatest body of wealth in New England.
This placed him in a society of men who consisted mainly of loyalists, suspected by the working population because of their great affluence and social power.
Hancock, however, soon became very involved in revolutionary politics and his sentiments were, early on and clearly, for independence from Great Britain.
