Euro Theft

Posted: 19th March 2013 by Scott @ The Right of a Nation in General Politics

Check out the article at Reuters. The government in Cyprus has decided that to fund their bailouts, they will take 10% of the citizens’ savings accounts. Of course, word of this caused a mad dash to ATM’s as people attempted to save the money they thought they were already saving. So, the government has now [...]

Ann Coulter on Liberals and Teen Pregnancy

Posted: 15th March 2013 by Scott @ The Right of a Nation in General Politics

Honestly, there is rarely anything to add to an Ann Coulter article, so here’s the full link at WorldNetDaily and here are a few choice quotes: Like the proverbial monkey typing for infinity and getting Shakespeare, Mayor Bloomberg’s obsession with reforming New Yorkers’ health has finally produced a brilliant ad campaign. ……………………………… Far from opposing [...]

There are a number of articles about this, but the one at WISTV does a fairly good job of explaining the situation.  To sum up, Automatic yearly raises would be out, and a new incentive plan would be in. But many South Carolina teachers have concerns about the bill, and are worried that student performance [...]

The evil rich already pay a lot of taxes and are now paying more!

Posted: 11th March 2013 by Scott @ The Right of a Nation in General Politics

We all know that Obama’s/liberals’ plan is to vilify the rich and make them seem like they all got their money without working, that the poor and middle class actually deserve that money, and that if the poor and middle class can’t actually directly take that money from them, they at least need to “pay [...]

Making the sequester as painful as possible

Posted: 6th March 2013 by Scott @ The Right of a Nation in General Politics

According to The Washington Times, the White House is trying to fulfill its promises that the sequester will be painful.  “…The Washington Times reported on another administration email that seemed to show at least one agency has been instructed to make sure the cuts are as painful as President Obama promised they would be. In [...]

Another example of racism being OK for Democrats

Posted: 8th June 2010 by Scott @ The Right of a Nation in General Politics

Obama recently praised the career of Helen Thomas, despite her recent anti-jew comments, according to The Hill. There has long been a tradition in society, especially in politics and the media, of dismissing a person entirely once it appears that they could even possibly be a racist.  Unless you’re a Democrat.  Compare comments and reactions [...]

Arizona immigration law

Posted: 7th June 2010 by Scott @ The Right of a Nation in General Politics

I was reading ESPN magazine the other day and was reading the “Two-Way” column by Stuart Scott.  In the column, he was asked by a reader “Should MLB remove the All Star game from Arizona if they keep their new immigration law?” Well, my wife accidentally threw my magazine out, so I don’t have his exact response, and I can’t seem to find it online [...]

President Obama, what does “teabagger” mean?

Posted: 4th May 2010 by Scott @ The Right of a Nation in General Politics

I’ve said it time and time again, but why are the politicians who use the term “teabagger” never asked to explain what it means?  (yes I know the answer is because they are liberal Democrats) Obama is now using the term publicly, according to the Washington Times. The term “tea-bagger” is like uttering the “n” [...]

Oops! Stimulus was a waste of money!

Posted: 3rd May 2010 by Scott @ The Right of a Nation in General Politics

Amazingly, this was found on CNN.  This is something else that is about a week old, but again, I’m running way behind on time with both a new job and a new baby. Anyway, The recovery is picking up steam as employers boost payrolls, but economists think the government’s stimulus package and jobs bill had [...]

Obama plays race card

Posted: 3rd May 2010 by Scott @ The Right of a Nation in General Politics

I know I’m way behind on this, but I just wanted to make note of it. As commented on at Politico, Obama has gotten desperate and come out and openly played the race card by calling on “young people, African-Americans, Latinos, and women who powered our victory in 2008 [to] stand together once again.” Big [...]
