Obama/Government Getting Involved in College Football

Posted: 29th January 2010 by Scott @ The Right of a Nation in General Politics

I guess now that the good news that the economy expanded at an annual rate of 5.7% for the fourth quarter, Obama figured he’s fixed the economy and will now start to get involved in some more areas that government SHOULD STAY OUT OF, such as college football. Here’s a summary from the AP: In [...]

Gun stuff in ESPN magazine

Posted: 28th January 2010 by Scott @ The Right of a Nation in 2nd Amendment

In ESPN Magazine, there is a section written by a “Player X” that is a current NFL football player.  If you subscribe to the Insider content on ESPN, you get this magazine, and I highly recommend it. In the most recent issue, Player X discusses that story of NBA player Gilbert Arenas bringing a gun [...]

Obama’s First State of the Union

Posted: 28th January 2010 by Scott @ The Right of a Nation in General Politics

I just want to go through the text of the state of the union and make a few comments. “One year ago, I took office amid two wars, an economy rocked by a severe recession, a financial system on the verge of collapse and a government deeply in debt. Experts from across the political spectrum [...]

US Teen Pregnancy Rate Up

Posted: 26th January 2010 by Scott @ The Right of a Nation in Abortion, General Politics

According to the AFP (read it here at Breitbart), in 2006 the teen pregnancy rate rose for the first time since 1990. The report said that “experts” blame this on abstinence-only sex education in schools.  They then cite the Guttmacher Institute as this expert, who said the occurrence was “deeply troubling” and “coincides with an [...]

Taliban to be part of Afghan Government

Posted: 26th January 2010 by Scott @ The Right of a Nation in National Security / Foreign Affairs

This is a few days old, and I haven’t commented on it yet because honestly I thought it was some sort of satire (or possibly incorrect reporting).  I first heard of it at Gateway Pundit and it was first reported by the New York Times. The first sentence of the report says it all – [...]

What’s a Tea-bagger?

Posted: 25th January 2010 by Scott @ The Right of a Nation in General Politics

So, as everyone knows, the way liberals/Democrats attempt to minimalize the “Tea Party”  movement is by calling them “Tea-Baggers” and other variations of the term, which is a crude sexual reference.  This term has been used by both prominent media personalities and politicians. My question is, why has no one stood up to these people [...]

More from Golden Boy Obama

Posted: 25th January 2010 by Scott @ The Right of a Nation in General Politics

Retiring Democrat Congressman Marion Berry of Arkansas just made some comments concerning his retirement in the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette. Basically, he is trying to warn Democrats to stop going down the path that they are on, unless they want to see another bloodbath in the 2010 elections like the one that occurred for them in 1994 [...]

South Carolina is not an educational bottom feeder after all

Posted: 25th January 2010 by Scott @ The Right of a Nation in South Carolina

An annual study by Education Week suggests that South Carolina is not ranked near the bottom of all states in education as is usually implied. You can read the entire article about this study at the Index Journal of Greenville, SC, but here are some excerpts: “Quality Counts 2010 places South Carolina at No. 11 [...]

Remember “No-Bid Contracts?”

Posted: 25th January 2010 by Scott @ The Right of a Nation in General Politics

Well, it’s been a while since we’ve heard that term, because Bush has been out of office for a while now. But let’s see if we start hearing about it again in the media now that, according to Fox News, Obama has issued a $25 million no-bid contract to a Democrat campaign contributor to perform [...]

Christmas-day bomber interrogated for 50 minutes

Posted: 25th January 2010 by Scott @ The Right of a Nation in National Security / Foreign Affairs

I’ve discussed before why non-Americans who are trying to kill Americans should not be given the same rights as Americans.  You can read that at The Right of a Nation – Everything Shouldn’t be Fair. According to The Washington Examiner, the would-be Christmas Day bomber, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, was interrogated for only 50 minutes before [...]
