Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,October 5th,2016

.. it seems that Florida Dems are a bunch of crybabies !! ..

.. the Pinellas County Board of Elections decided to mount a voter reg drive at dozens of locations around the county . Then Pinellas Cty Dems started wailing . Why ?!?! ..

.. some of the locations that they chose were Chick – fil – A restaurants ..

… Uh – Oh [#Court Case][#POTUS ‘ exec action][#immigration]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,October 13th,2015

.. an update on the court case on DACA and DAPA ..

.. well , they have had the hearing at the 5th Circuit . As the way things look , there looks to be a 2 to 1 majority to uphold Judge Hanen ‘ s injunction stopping POTUS ‘ power grab on exec actions on amnesty …

.. in some ways , the ObamaCraps got lucky . They got one ObamaCrap judge on the panel . But , they got only one . The other two judges are Dubya and Bush 41 appointees , respectively . Both of them are stout conservatives . So it looks good for Texas v. US going forward to the full 5th Circuit , maybe …

.. [h/t — Politico.com]..
.. [link] to the news article …

.. the ObamaCrap Administration can take the case to the full 5th Circuit . However , that is a very bad idea . The 5th Circuit is one of the most conservative ones still in the country . So , their odds on going to an ” en banc ” hearing before the full court are not good …

.. more likely is that the Administration is going to push this up to the U.S. Supreme Court . Also a dumb idea . They probably have 3 votes , at the most , to support their position . They do not have Breyer , and they most definitely do not have Kennedy …

… an Election is Coming [#Great Britain]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,May 2nd,2015

.. and it is going to be a wild one ..

.. when is it ? May 7th , 2015 ..

.. Great Britain has the House of Commons , which is where the election is for . There are a total of 650 constituencies in the House of Commons …

.. [h/t — en.Wikipedia.org]..
.. [link] to the blog article …

.. how many parties …

[at least the significant ones]

.. Conservative [Con] .. (right wing)

.. Labour [Lab] .. (left wing)

.. Liberal Democrats [LDP] .. (left of center moderate)

.. Green [Grn] .. (socialist)

.. UK Independence Party (right of center to conservative) [UKIP] ..

.. Democratic Union Party [DUP] (Northern Ireland) … (unionist)

.. Sinn Fein [SFN] (NI) .. (irish nationalist)

Sinn Fein does affect the number of seats needed to achieve a majority , because they do not actually take their seats . As a result , the actual total is reduced to 645 , and the # needed for a majority is reduced from 326 to 323 …

.. Scottish National Party [SNP] (Scotland) (left wing)

.. there are many other parties , but these are the ones that matter …

… Carl De Maio has some serious guts [GOP candidate // CA]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,May 14th,2014

.. if you have not heard of him , you will .

.. around these parts of the country , the answer is , huh ?? ..

.. Carl De Maio is / was a City Councilman in San Diego . He is a fervent and strong , fairly conservative guy . He is also gay . So what ? ..

.. [h/t — Newsmax]..
.. [link] to the candidate ‘ s comments ..

.. De Maio ran for Mayor of San Diego in 2012 . Unfortunately , he lost (narrowly) to Bob (Filthy) Filner , who is now gone . He is now running for the 52nd Congressional district seat , one that is currently held by a DemoCrap (I am not sure which one) ..

.. given the circumstances , de Maio would not have an easy time . This year and this time around , he has a real chance of knocking off an incumbent DemoCrap . Good . Whether he is gay or not should not matter . Whether he is electable and can serve well in office is important ..

.. good luck to you , Carl . I for one will be following your race to see what happens …

… Rules for the Late Conservative …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,May 13th,2013

.. At the passing of each conservative legend we are reminded that liberals stick to some basic rules when commenting on these passings . These rules of the road are thoroughly predictable , and the subject of much guffawing by conservatives .

— the only good conservative is a dead one , primarily because they can be used to diminish contemporary conservatives.

— No mention is allowed of the left’s hysterical opposition and venom during the deceased’s lifetime now that the leader has achieved political immortality.

— He who was a “crackpot” now provides support for a range of liberal causes .

— No connection can be made by the left between the leader’s conservative policies and the great success the leader achieved.

— The deceased’s greatness is only attributed to identity (woman, grocer’s daughter, actor) and personal characteristics (good humor, rhetoric, tenacity).

— No time can be spent explaining the left’s mes s, which opened the door to the conservative legend’s ascent to power , most especially if the mess was brought about by liberal policies still in vogue.
