Obama’s Politics of Pork and Fear

By: Donald R. May | Blog: Mr. Conservative

We the People do not want the Obama bailout package.  Like the Bush bailout, the Obama bailout will not work.  Most of the Obama bailout, which Obama refers to as “stimulus,” is pork to reward unions and other Socialists who have supported him.

By: Donald R. May | Blog: Mr. Conservative

Faster than we thought possible, President Barack Obama introduced major Socialist control of American businesses. President Obama stated that the CEOs of corporations that have received bailout money from the federal government will have their salaries capped at $500,000 per year.

Fuzzy wuzzie was a bear, wasn't he?

By: chrisvanwagenen | Blog: Open for Business

Well look at this. It seems some Texas Christian grads are going to put in a Fuzzy's Taco Shop off Broadway near Avenue U. Fuzzy's, which is the rave in Forth Worth, Denton and Arlington, appears headed for the Hub City. Can't wait to find out what that "fish" taco is all about, among others.

Still singing the "Blues" on that burger

By: chrisvanwagenen | Blog: Open for Business

While some initial paperwork has been filed with the city, there has been no formal permit issued for Blue Sky Burger for a joint off 82nd Street, just west of Quaker Avenue. LakeRidge Vista LLC is negotiating with the Amarillo owner. That said, nothing has been signed and no definitive contract is in hand. "But Chris, what about the work over there?" Yeah, I've seen it. Strictly a case of that land had to be built up regardless for a number of reasons for construction purposes. "But Chris, didn't you see their Web site." Saw it. Means nothing, especially in this economy.

Stone cold knock out for ice cream; now you scream

By: chrisvanwagenen | Blog: Open for Business

Yes, it's true. The Lubbock franchisee for Cold Stone Creamery has closed both Lubbock locations at Broadway and off University Avenue near 82nd Street. Why, I don't know.

News and Reviews

Before I get too far, I'd like to point out that "Being Human" -- the BBC horror/dramedy I wrote about a couple of days ago -- is going to be aired sometime this year on BBC America. Probably won't mean much to me, 'cause I can't afford cable, but for those of you who can get BBC America, you'll be able to see this show.

Nancy Pelosi Could Become Our President!

By: Donald R. May | Blog: Mr. Conservative

It is a sobering fact that should arouse a deep sense of fear in the hearts of all, especially Democrats.  Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the United States House of Representatives, is two heartbeats away from the Presidency of the United States of America.
