Rasmussen polls: Does the US support liberal or conservative ideals more?

I’ll give you a hint:  We are not a liberal nation.

Ok, its not a subtle hint, but the poll results aren’t too subtle either

  • Presidential Index?  -10
  • Disapprove of the President’s performance:  53%
  • Fort Hood:  Investigate as terrorist attack?  60%
  • Like the military?  81%
  • Sees the world as a community of similar nations like Obama?  32%
  • Oppose Obamacare/PelosiCare?  52%
  • Generic ballot:  Republicans are up by 6%
  • Confidence in America’s fighting terror the right way? 34%  (That’s down 21 points since Bush left office)

Well, gee, that’s all really surprising…  if you listen to the MSM.


So, Chavez. How’s that Socialism working out for you? No electricity and no water?

Anyone surprised?  Anyone?  

Er uh, blackouts in Venezuela, really no kidding?

Via New York Times: CARACAS, Venezuela — This country may be an energy colossus, with the largest conventional oil reserves outside the Middle East and one of the world’s mightiest hydroelectric systems, but that has not prevented it from enduring serious electricity and water shortages that seem only to be getting worse.

You’d think that would be like predictable given the past performance of heavily communist policies in the past?

Four men mug a man, stealing his wallet. They open the wallet and see he has a military ID. So they return his stuff and apologize. Wait… What??

Ok, I am SO confused.  These guys are patriots, but mugged a guy?  Hey, muggers.  Could you please turn yourself in or something?  I don’t want the liberals running around saying “see, only pro-military people would mug you.”

MILWAUKEE —  A Milwaukee Army reservist’s military identification earned him some street cred Tuesday, when he says four men who mugged him at gunpoint returned his belongings and thanked him for his service after finding the ID.

The 21-year-old University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee student said he was walking home from work about 1:15 a.m. Tuesday when he was pulled into an alley and told to lay face down and with a gun to his neck. Four men took his wallet, $16, keys, his cell phone and even a PowerBar wrapper from his pants pockets, he said.

But the hostile tone quickly changed when one of the robbers, whom the reservist presumed was the leader, saw an Army ID in the wallet. The robber told the others to return the items and they put most of his belongings on the ground next to him, including the wrapper, the reservist said.
