The amount they gave away in election 2008 was over $30-million and man, are they […]
Thats right, the DNC said “Target”. Here is a fine example of Democrats, elitist as they are, expect a different set of standards for Republicans than for themselves. Their rationale? Democrats don’t kill people because of a campaign ad or an article and certainly don’t equate the word “Target” with guns. Only a right wing nut job would do that. Like Jared Loughner as we all know, no matter what […]

After a while it gets old being an ass. Elephants are more social and won’t forget the move that four Democrats are making. They are switching to the Republican party. Some say folks like to be on the winning team. Others are saying they were promised something. The truth is that being fiscal conservative and pro-life is out of favor with the Democratic party.
