Road Dog Politics by Sam Eldridge http://www.mccookgazette.com/blogs/1461/ en-us Christmas for H.C. http://www.mccookgazette.com/blogs/1461/entry/64663 As Christmas Day, 1947 approached, Navy Seaman Hubert C. (HC) Smith was far away from his home in Greeneville Tennessee. The nineteen year old sailor was paralyzed from the neck down due to a tragic accident while engaged in his job as a shipbuilder. Hubert Smith had not seen his family or friends since joining the Navy. Alone in his hospital room at a Naval Hospital in Southern California, a popular national radio show, Truth or Consequences, was about to give the stricken sailor a Christmas...

The American psyche has gotten weird, for example: I now know that the American people will not put up with an NFL Quarterback or Coach deflating footballs for a game. That kind of skullduggery will not be tolerated by Mr. and Mrs. citizen. However, having a President who lies repeatedly about almost everything is perfectly fine. Adrian Peterson gets rough with his son, and the fans demand justice, not... Thu, 22 Jan 2015 22:07:40 -0600 Aaaaaarrrgg! http://www.mccookgazette.com/blogs/1461/entry/59848 I want to offer some thoughtful and insightful comments on President Obama's handling of various "situations". Hey I want to be positive. I really do. This is why I haven't written for a while. I look a various issues, and all I can think of to say anymore, in the spirit of Sam Kinison, is Aaaaaarrgg! So let's give it a shot and see if we can find an area that the Obama regime is handling well. I'd really like to find one, or even two. The Economy? Aaaaaarrgg! Okay, let's...

Tools and enemies." - Frederick Nietzsche I don't know about you, but I am tired of the war on white folks from Democrats. While those on the Left constantly cry about hatred, and racism, the true war and hatred since 2008 has been a war on whites. Listen to Liberals, and you would think that whites in America are the evil of the world. Let me share some simple facts: No racists in America could have killed as many black... Tue, 05 Aug 2014 21:55:55 -0500 They Are in it Together http://www.mccookgazette.com/blogs/1461/entry/59097 I think it was Fred Allen who once said, "You can tell people the truth, but you better make them laugh, or they will hurt you." We seem to be living in a time where the marvelous lie is preferred over the hard truth. Maybe it has always been that way. With very few exceptions, these two parties are basically the same. They both work hard to give us a bloated, out of control unionized bureaucratic dictatorship, of which WE THE PEOPLE have damn little say in what goes on. WE THE PEOPLE...

The article not only exposes Ms. Warren for goofy Marxist that she is, is also exposes how the detestable left will campaign for the next 2 1/2 years, and forever if they are successful. This is worth your time to read. Thank You. "At first she was good for a laugh: a clueless limousine leftist who used Affirmative Action to establish herself at Harvard by pretending to be part Indian. Expressing a... Mon, 21 Jul 2014 10:33:56 -0500 And Senator Johann Made A Speech http://www.mccookgazette.com/blogs/1461/entry/58966 Tens of thousands of illegals aliens are crashing our borders, terrorists could be slipping through, reports of disease, gang activity and huge costs to deal with this mess. And Senator Johann made a speech. And Barack Obama made a speech. And Deb Fischer made a speech. And the Congressman made a Speech. And the Secretary made a speech. And the Union President made a speech. And the media called the speeches good. And then they all went home and enjoyed your money. The IRS... Sat, 19 Jul 2014 21:41:47 -0500 How Lucky is the IRS? http://www.mccookgazette.com/blogs/1461/entry/58910 So what do you folks think? Any corruption, cover-ups or sculduggery going on over there at the IRS? Tue, 15 Jul 2014 10:43:23 -0500 Holder to Investigate an Outhouse http://www.mccookgazette.com/blogs/1461/entry/58901 United States Attorney General Eric Holder is going to get involved in Nebraska. You would think the Nation's Chief Law Enforcement Officer might want to investigate some real crimes. For example, IRS abuses, Fast & Furious, illegals being dumped in Nebraska without the consent of our governing authorities. But No! Mr. Holder has decided to investigate a parade in Norfolk Nebraska featuring a float with one mans opinion of what Barack Hussein Obama's Presidential Library should look... Mon, 14 Jul 2014 23:40:29 -0500 Eric Holder Draws The Race Card, Again http://www.mccookgazette.com/blogs/1461/entry/58895 Once again The Attorney General of the United States claims that race is behind the opposition to the policies of the Obama Administration. Gets old doesn't it? You would think these guys have something real to think about and deliberate upon, but no. Apparently, our chief law enforcement officer sits up nights worried that folks don't like him because he is black. From what I see around the country, the opposition to Barack Obama and Eric Holder, and this administration, is based upon... Mon, 14 Jul 2014 19:45:14 -0500 Twenty Questions for Senator Johanns http://www.mccookgazette.com/blogs/1461/entry/58886 In the days of carefully crafted talking points and spin doctors, politicians are careful not to offend anyone on the Planet Earth, other than white Christians males. It is hard to get a straight answer to any question from our elected officials. But if by some miracle, I had the opportunity to sit and ask our United States Senator, Mike Johanns, just twenty questions, and get twenty honest answers, that would be marvelous. Here are twenty questions. Do you know how he would answer... Sun, 13 Jul 2014 22:35:46 -0500 The Savage Truth http://www.mccookgazette.com/blogs/1461/entry/58879 "When I fought to protect my land and my home, I was called a savage." - Chief Dan George Do you wonder if any one running the country has any idea what they are doing? I do not exaggerate to say that our country is in trouble. Years ago, many citizens expressed concerns about the path of the country. America had been taken in by a tricky media complex, and an expertly executed bag of Socialist and Communist tactics, to elect fraud, and a Marxist as President. Those who spoke out... Sun, 13 Jul 2014 01:23:59 -0500 Old Time Radio http://www.mccookgazette.com/blogs/1461/entry/46178 February 14th approaches. It is a special day for me. Yes indeed, February 14th is Jack Benny's birthday. If memory serves me right, Jack will be 39. Jack has been 39 since 1933, when he actually turned 39. And it is not just Jack Benny that I fondly celebrate on February 14th, but the golden age of radio as well. Thankful I am to satellite radio, as the past few years have given me the opportunity to enjoy classic radio programs, but Jack Benny is my favorite. Jack was amazing, he... Sat, 04 Feb 2012 14:00:25 -0600 Christmas Hope http://www.mccookgazette.com/blogs/1461/entry/45433 My mom loved Christmas. Our Christmas tree usually went up the day after Thanksgiving. We'd watch football games and decorate the tree, it was a wonderful time as a kid. I can remember Mom always talked about Hope at Christmas time. Christ's birth was true hope for men and women dealing with this thing called life. Many times I have pondered why Christ spent no time at all discussing the current political situations at the time. Certainly there were atrocities going on, wrongs that... Sun, 25 Dec 2011 22:57:51 -0600 Turn Right When You Reach Mars http://www.mccookgazette.com/blogs/1461/entry/45238 When I was a teenager, I remember going to see the movie: 2001 A Space Odyssey on the huge screen at the Arvada Plaza theatre in metro Denver. At that time, America was very close to fulfilling the dream of landing on the Moon. Back in 1968 when this movie came out, I totally bought into the idea that by 2001, we would have a base on the Moon. I really thought, that in my lifetime, I would be in the generation that got to see men landing on the Moon, and by the time I'd retire, men... Thu, 15 Dec 2011 14:28:20 -0600 Dealing With BDS (Battered Democrat Syndrome) http://www.mccookgazette.com/blogs/1461/entry/45197 I listened to President Obama last week in Kansas as he took to the political pulpit to preach the gospel of Socialism. This sermon I have heard before, from guys like Daniel Ortega, Hugo Chavez, and Fidel Castro. What really struck me was the manufactured crowd. They were all cheering for the President to lock them away in an economic prison. They were begging for serfdom. This makes you wonder as to why Democrats demand that others control them. Why do Democrats so easily give up... Tue, 13 Dec 2011 06:30:37 -0600 Hearts and Flowers http://www.mccookgazette.com/blogs/1461/entry/44892 Many voters realize that any of the current candidates running for this nation's highest office would make a better President than Barack Obama. Truly, it would be hard for any human being to do a worse job than Obama. But simply being "better" than Obama can not be the measuring stick when choosing a nominee. We must be honest with ourselves, and confront the Liberal Democrats and the mess they have created in almost every area. The next President, must not try and manage the... Sun, 27 Nov 2011 00:48:07 -0600 The Real Valley Forge http://www.mccookgazette.com/blogs/1461/entry/44651 I heard that some of the children of Liberalism in the Occupy crowd were calling their protests a "Valley Forge moment". Further evidence of the real fruits of our public education system. I would love to dive into a rant here, instead, I will use the words of Henry Armitt Brown, in his oratory regarding Valley Forge, delivered June 19th 1878. Let his words be a stinking rebuke. "The struggle now had become one of endurance, and while liberty and independence seemed as far off as ever,... Mon, 14 Nov 2011 14:58:41 -0600 Birds Of a Slacker Feather http://www.mccookgazette.com/blogs/1461/entry/44378 It is interesting to see the folks who have voiced support for the Occupy Wall Street Slacker vermin, infesting many of our nations' cities. Zombie at PJ media online has a splendid article on the various radical leftists, Communists, Fascists, Socialists, and other unionists and assorted crazies backing these astro-turfed protests. The Communist Party USA The American Nazi Party Ayatollah Khomeini, Supreme Leader of Iran Barack Obama, (thinks he is Supreme Leader of USA) The... Wed, 02 Nov 2011 15:32:43 -0500 The Southern Boys http://www.mccookgazette.com/blogs/1461/entry/44284 I met "The Boss" earlier this year. He was recruiting hired hands for a special project and he was just loaded with promises. He basically promised hard work, long hours, tough conditions, being away from home, little or no time off, few breaks and good pay. Sounds just too good to pass up, doesn't it? So, I packed and kissed my wife good by, and off I go. The four month long employment opportunity was a rather large one, involving scores of skilled and semi-skilled workers, recruited...
