Why should I vote for Republicans across the board in 2010?

Here's the answer . . .

Or, at least it is the preamble to the answer.  Check out this link and download the entire plan.  Judge for yourself . . . do you want to vote for the current status quo in Washington . . . or Republicans who take A Pledge to America.

The time is now for the people to take back Washington.  GOP in 2010.

Up, Up, and Away . . . taxes that is

In what should come as a shock to no one, but may actually shock some of you "moderates" and "independents" who fell under the spell of Obamamania in 2008 and created the current one-party federal government in Washington, the Democrats are raising taxes on "almost everyone."  Yes, indeed.  I'm not kidding.  If Congress doesn't pass a bill to keep taxes at their current levels by the end of 2010 yet the Democrats who possess overwhelming majorities (for now) in both houses of Congress have "abandoned plans to vote before Election Day" on the issue.  (Link to story here.)

That leaves your wallet in the hands of a lame duck session that will still be led by Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi.  In other words, don't hold your breath.

Where have you gone????

Nowhere really.  Just busy.  Tired.  Etc.

So, here's the deal.  I started this blog to get things off my chest.  If it draws readers, great.  If not, well, I still need to get things off my chest.  So, if you like what you see, check back from time to time.  There might be something new.  No promises, though, I'm still busy, tired, etc.

A question for Stephen Hawking

According to physicist Stephen Hawking, God did not create the Universe.  "Spontaneous creation is the reason there is something rather than nothing."  It is "because there is a law such as gravity, the Universe can and will create itself from nothing."  (Link here.)

But here's my question for Professor Hawking . . . why is there a law such as gravity?  Who created it?

Crystal Ball says . . . Republicans take the House of Representatives in November and may take the Senate too!

Get out your crystal balls.  Not just any crystal balls, though, only the new "Crystal Ball" prediction from the "typically cautious [so says U.S. News & World Report] Larry Sabato, head of the University of Virginia's Center for Politics."  Sabato says that the GOP has a "good chance to win the House by picking up as many as 47 seats, net."  (Link to U.S. News report here.)  Republicans only need a gain of 40 for a majority.

Honestly, in my opinion, it would take massive complacency, fraud, or a big October/November surprise to  keep the House in Democrats' hands.

But the real news is in the Sabato's Senate predictions where, to gain control, Republicans need a net gain of 10 seats.  9 would split the Senate down the middle but vice president Joe Biden could break the tie in favor of the Democrats.  And gaining 10 seats when only 19 seats currently held by Democrats are up for election is a tall order but according to Sabato:

"In the Senate, we now believe the GOP will do a bit better than our long-time prediction of +7 seats.  Republicans have an outside shot at winning full control (+10), but are more likely to end up with +8 (or maybe +9, at which point it will be interesting to see how senators such as Joseph Lieberman of Connecticut, Ben Nelson of Nebraska, and others react).  . . . The inescapable conclusion is that the Senate is on the bubble, with only a slight lean at Labor Day toward Democratic retention."

So, why should we care about Larry Sabato's Crystal Ball?  According to U.S. News, "Sabato has a near flawless record of accurate predictions."

Don't count any chickens yet.  Don't get complacent.  Don't start infighting.

Fuel up the GOP bandwagon and push for a Republican rout in November.

In Missouri, that means Roy Blunt!  Roy Blunt!  Roy Blunt!

For those of you reading from across the river in Illinois, it means Mark Kirk!  Mark Kirk!  Mark Kirk!

THE most important thing that you can do for your country in 2010 is vote Republican on November 2. I can't say that enough.

Wednesday, September 1, 2010 covering for Robin Carnahan?

Here's a link to the story.  Note that the story covers a blunder by the Missouri Secretary of State and the headline correctly lambasts the "error."  But, just who is the blundering, error-prone Secretary of State?  Don't look to the story, the answer isn't in there.  It is Robin Carnahan . . . the Democrat's candidate for U.S. Senate. and its parent, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, apparently don't want to call attention to that fact . . . but I will . . .

Robin Carnahan's office made "a counting error" and "nearly left a qualified independent candidate for State Senate off the November ballot."
