Our president is more involved in what happens on the Ukrainian border then he is on the American border.

It seems those who cry about the poor in our country are the same people who want to import more of them like it will somehow make things better.

REWARD!

I have never had to do this in the past but it seems some less scrupled people don't want to do the hard work it takes to put up their own signs and would rather just take down mine.   

So...

 $250.00 in cash will be paid to the person who gives information or proof of the person stealing my yard signs or big signs from the private property they currently sit on.

And yes, I will press charges. 

Happy hunting!

The gloves come off.

The gloves were still off during the WBIR CH 10  "Inside Tennessee" debate as well as the WATE CH 6 "Tennessee this week"  debate.  The shows were pre recorded but will air this  Sunday morning at 9:30  for Inside Tennessee and noon for Tennessee this week.

New kiddie rules.

I had two TV interviews and one "forum" with the Knox County Republican Woman last night.  The TV interviews went as expected (more on that later) the interesting thing was the Republican woman's "forum" 

Not that there were any big shots fired. It was odd because it was just the opposite. 

My opponents campaign had demanded preconditions before he would show up. 

He demanded that we couldn't even mention our opponents record. No mention of past statements and absolutely no videotaping or recording of the event. 

If he can't handle the heat from me and stand up to his own statements how does he think he will work in Nashville?

Thought of the day.



I never understood the disconnect as the left screams "Businesses aren't people!.......but unions are!"

One yes, two no.

Went to a great reception hosting pro life legislators two nights ago. As you can imagine, the attention was mostly focused around support of the "Yes on one" movement. Yes on on is in support of amendment one to our state constitution to say (among other things) there is nothing in our state constitution that requires state support or funding of abortion in Tennessee.

As has happened in other states, many times courts decide abortion is not only a right but should be paid for by the state.

Crazy, I know.

Also up for a vote this November is amendment 2 to take away the people's right to vote on their judges.  A new movement has started to stop that constitutional amendment.

I find it ironic a place with the name "Target" won't allow guns in their stores

One survey I responded to asked me "On a scale of 1-10 with 10 being most conservative, what would you rate yourself?"

I said , "11"

Huff Po's take on my Drug testing bill

The Huffington Post comments on how my drug testing bill will work where others have failed.


ACLU threatens suit against my bill.


The ACLU is threatening a lawsuit over my drug testing for government benefits bill.  Sadly, they have not done the research on my bill as I have done previous to passage.

I say bring it on. Like most of their suits they bring in TN, I suspect another costly failure on their part.

The Supreme Court is not a fan of "benevolent" dictators.

And up we go again.

TCAP and student performance score continue to rise even in areas NOT Common Core compliant.

Nice!!!!

From the article....

 More than 100,000 additional students are on grade level in math, and an additional 57,000 students are at or above grade level in science....


....Tennessee teachers fully implemented the state’s new standards in math and English this year, and student scores held steady in grades 3-8, with slight gains in most areas. This year’s results showed improvement in math and science areas, with biology and algebra proficiency rates continuing to rise. In 2011 only 31 percent of Algebra II students were on grade level, and this year nearly 50 percent more than 13,000 additional Tennessee students than in 2011 reached that mark.
High school English scores grew considerably over last year’s results in English I and English II. The students on grade level in English II increased nearly 4 percent this year.
Additionally, achievement gaps for minority students narrowed in math and reading at both the high school and 3-8 levels.

Drug testing starts today.

Many people have been waiting a long time for this. 

My bill for drug testing those in Tennessee who want government benefits goes into full, state wide effect today.

It's settled law.

Well the Supreme Court had two big decisions over the last few days and came down on the side of free speech and the babies.

The left is apoplectic about it.

Funny,  when it was the court siding with the occupy "movement" and their right to protest there was no crying, wailing and shaking on the ground.

When unions are allowed to protest on sidewalks no one on the right called for the courts head.

Where the court to mandate all businesses pay for gun classes and ammo for the hobby/safety of their employees the left would lose it.

 No one has to pay to kill your babies but you.

But hey, its settled law now, right?

The movie  "The Edge of Tomorrow" is just like "Groundhog Day" In the future. What if instead of Tom Cruise they starred Bill Murray?

Wal Mart fights back.


So often you hear and read news stories  about "Big evil Wal Mart".  Usually they just sit back and let the haters hate. This rebuttal to a New York Times hit piece is classic.

So the IRS lost their E mails?  What does the IRS do to people when they lose their receipts?
