The Pink Flamingo was thinking about politics and baseball. They are both related. Baseball has a fantasy league, so why can’t we have fantasy politics.
I have a dream.
Just think how much fun it would be to create my own version of hearing in the House. I could get to select who I wanted to take on the Dems, and interrogate them in a dog and pony show, humiliating them the way they do those poor souls they put on the hot seat.
There would be no opening statements. There would be no pontificating, only cold, hard questions. Those who are being interrogated must provide concrete answers or they will be held in Contempt of Congress (and they are contemptible).Read More

They are creepy and they are kooky!
Michael Medved, in the opening moments of his Monday’s radio show brought up a very salient point. We DO NOT want Harry Reid to resign. We want him right where he is, running for re-election. We want Harry Reid as one of the faces of the Democrats.
You gotta love the Dems. They are so very adorable, cute, and just plain fun to watch.
Then again they are creepy and they are kooky!Read More
There is a fascinating article in American Thinker by Andrew Thomas about the role of “evil” in politics. As a Christian I happen to believe there is such thing as evil, pure, unadulterated evil. As a thinking person I also know that almost all of what we consider “evil” is not actually “evil” but is mental illness, character disorders, and perception.
I disagree with Thomas’ perception of Democrats as “evil”. Democrats like Republicans have an agenda. Unless that agenda is abjectly intent on actual harm, it should not be defined as “evil” the way Thomas does. Thomas assumes anyone who disagrees with his political thesis is “evil”.
Having piddled around with politics since I was a little kid with my mother, I’ve met people good, evil, and indifferent. Some of the nicest people I’ve ever met in politics are Democrats and liberals. They are good people. We simply disagree on a political agenda. One of the worst acts of personal harm done to me (as an adult) was executed in cold blood. It was calculated. It was manipulated to do the worst possible harm to me – personally. The person who did it is still a very highly a “respected” conservative political operative, scholar, and writer. I am still dealing with the personal heart-ache this person created. The dirty deed was done over a decade ago and may never be repaired.Read More

I wonder how Nancy Pelosi sleeps at night, don’t you?
Yes, we are dealing with hyperbole, but tell that to elderly parents who are truly suffering as they worry about their future. We’re talking people who have done the right things, taken the correct steps, put aside money for their future, but – now they are in danger of someone literally pulling the plug on them.
I am watching a very ill 79 (nearly 80) year old mother suffer in a hospital, trying to get over a bad case of double pneumonia. She is also very depressed. Why not?
My mother suffered from heart failure four years ago. If we were living under Nancy Pelosi’s ObamaCare Scary World, my mother would have been allowed to die.
Instead, we have had 4 good years with her.
In July she broke a vertebra in her back.
Two weeks ago she fell and broke her left elbow. After surgery a week ago on Thursday, she developed pneumonia – double pneumonia. She is being treated extremely well here in Ruidoso. I cannot complain about the battle being waged to save her life. If we were in the UK, she would have been allowed to die this weekend. If we were living under ObamaCare the same thing would have happened.
My mother is obviously depressed. That is not helping her recovery. When she thinks about the future and the socialization of medicine. This depression and fear of a future that she should not fear is not helping her recovery, either.
No one in this nation should be forced to fear the future and the fact that they are going to be subjected to what is literally Retroactive Abortion – murdering the elderly.
They fear for their future in a nation where they have paid taxes, voted, and have been good citizens in good faith. My father fought for this nation. He is 85. Will they pull the plug on him, even though he has literally been required to pay millions of dollars in taxes?
My vision of the future, in a bleak, horrible world where only the perfect are allowed access to health care and allowed to live is the possibility that someone like Nancy Pelosi will be diagnosed with a curable illness, then forced to linger without health care, screaming in horror at what she has done – and the millions of lives she has consigned to an early death.Read More
