What Government “Waste” Will Obama Cut?

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

President-elect Barack Obama again stated on Tuesday morning that he would cut government waste and end unnecessary government programs in order to pay for the programs he wants.  His spending is referred to as investments made to stimulate our economy.  Initial payments for this spending will come from spending cuts.

It’s Still a Reagan Nation

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

Even President-elect Barack Obama realizes the validity and value of Ronald Reagan’s economic principles in difficult times.  Obama’s apparent recent shift on keeping the Bush tax cuts intact and not raising taxes on anyone may be indicative of his economic pragmatism in difficult times.

Wholly Spirit

By: scottslemmons | Blog: Hero Sandwich

Wow, two comics came out this week about "The Spirit"! Sure, that means DC and Warner Brothers are trying to drum up some interest in the Spirit movie that's coming out in December -- might I add, the Spirit movie that's coming out in December and looks like unmitigated garbage. Ahh, but on to the comics for now...

A Thanksgiving for the Ages

As we begin the week of Thanksgiving, now is an excellent time to reflect on our heritage and our history.  Many have sacrificed their treasure and their blood that we might live in liberty and freedom.

Losing Really Big

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

Saturday was a day for watching big losses.  Number 2 Texas Tech went down 21-65 to Number 5 Oklahoma.  Texas Tech’s unbeaten season ended.  As a good friend who lives in Dallas just wrote to me, “The bad news is we lost.  The good news is that we held Oklahoma to 65 points.”  The opportunity for Texas Tech is the Baylor game next Saturday and what follows.  One loss can make us better.

Where do the Raiders go from here?

NORMAN, Okla. - Saturday's 65-21 loss to Oklahoma was no doubt a painful one for Texas Tech, which saw its hopes for a national championship slip away in front of a national television audience. The Red Raiders were on top of the Big 12 Conference and ranked second in the country, but now they're locked in a three-way tie atop the South Division with the Sooners and Texas. And they'll likely drop out of the top five when the new rankings are released on Sunday. How was a team playing with poise and confidence rattled by a big-game atmosphere, which it thrived in for nearly a month?

A year makes a big difference for OU's Murray, Bradford

By: Adam Zuvanich | Blog: Zuvie's Views

NORMAN, Okla - The last time DeMarco Murray played against Texas Tech, he was nursing an injured knee and an injured psyche. The Oklahoma running back dislocated his knee cap late in last year's 34-27 loss to the Red Raiders, which ruined the Sooners' chances of winning a national title. Murray had a much more enjoyable night Saturday, when OU squashed Tech's national-title aspirations with a 65-21 win in Norman, Okla.

It's almost time for Tech-OU

By: Adam Zuvanich | Blog: Zuvie's Views

A little after 5 p.m. today, Mike Leach and his troops hopped off charter buses and began their march into Oklahoma Memorial Stadium. They looked reserved and resolute, and not at all bothered by the jeers from a small group of OU fans standing outside the gate. Now the Red Raiders and Sooners have taken the field for warmups, and the stands are quickly filling up.
