Nebraska Deem & Pass? LB 1110 Proved Shenanigans Not Limited to D.C.

Posted by Shellinda As a couple of Americans who have spent too much time focused on Washington, D.C. and not enough within our state (but making an effort to change this), we wonder whether the maneuvers regarding a certain piece of legislation introduced last session is common practice in the Nebraska Unicameral. We suspect it […] Continue reading

As Election Nears – This One Deserves A Rewind

It’s time for some campaignin’…entertaining to be sure, but I think it’s worth a look beyond the entertainment value. This video is funny because it contains truth. The trouble is, the truth in political jokes are on us…the voters. How DID we end up with those two candidates? It’s more than a little freaky that […] Continue reading

Middle Ground Not For Us: Time To Be Brave

We’ve not spoken much about faith on this site, but the more we look at solutions to the many problems we’re confronting, we discover we can’t do this alone.

Nebraska Appleseed Not Happy: Judge Refuses Injunction

Nebraska Appleseed is a Lincoln-based entity that seems to be on the wrong side of just about every issue limited government types are concerned about.  If it costs money, grows government, facilitates the welfare state, promotes a “green” agenda, and potentially raises taxes, odds are high…Nebraska Appleseed would be for it.

GiN on KLKN TV: Tea Party Movement Impact In Nebraska

Politicians Do The Side Step

By Shelli Dawdy In my last article, I talked about how elected officials don’t often hear from those of us who just want to be left alone and don’t want anything from government. I theorized that is likely why, by the time politicians have run for higher office such as US Congress, they are no […] Continue reading

Politician Deafness & Other Natural Phenomenon

By Shelli Dawdy Why do federal elected officials seem to be impervious to the objections of their constituents, specifically when those objections are voiced in large numbers? That phenomenon was very well illustrated by the drama that reached a crescendo on October 3, 2008. Congress passed the bailout bill (TARP) despite call ratios into Congressmen […] Continue reading

Big Brother In Your Trash. Crazy, Right? Wrong.

By Shelli Dawdy Fortunately, the story is starting to get out. “Big Brother” wants to see what’s in your trash. And no, this is not a conspiracy theory. WHO is “Big Brother”? The precise composition of the snoop depends upon where you live, but in most cases, there is a single source from which this […] Continue reading
