A Conservative's Holiday--Christmas with Perry Como

Ready for a trip down memory lane?  Remember Perry Como?  At one time his name was synonymous with the Christmas season.

Conservative Examiner highlights the singer's contributions, especially at Christmas.

Hope you enjoy the memories...


Once again, the voices of Patriots were heard in Washington as the Senate failed to bring the DREAM Act amnesty plan for illegal aliens to the floor for a vote.

Conservative Examiner reports.

Thus, the DREAM Act is officially DEAD during this session of Congress.  Good riddance.

Friday, December 17, 2010


The vote is scheduled for tomorrow, and Patriotic Americans need to get on the phones to tell Congress to OPPOSE this direct assault on American citizens!

Conservative Examiner provides the details.

If this bill is implemented it will cost the taxpayers $6000 per person per year, leading to drastic tax hikes.  Beware, and don't believe the rhetoric of the Leftwing nutcases.

Second Amendment News Roundup for 12/17/2010

All guns and politics, from the best gun rights-and-liberty bloggers on the Internet!

Mike McCarville posts the results of the latest poll showing that opposition to ObamaCare remains very high.

Around O-Town blogs on a great American looking out for future Americans.

Way Up North has a gunny question concerning Crimson Trace grips.

Tam observes that frivolous lawsuits have resulted in higher prices on just about everything.

David Codrea reports on outrage in this growing police state.  A pro-gun bumper sticker was all it took for cops to do a pat-down on one citizen...

Kurt Hofmann issues a plea for gun owners to speak up about a certain issue of vital importance.  Take a look.

WRSA provides details on the launch of the new 'Open Source Project.'  This has all the makings of a vitally important service.

CLO has 'the perfect Christmas gift,' which I heartily endorse.  

Brigid offers her take on 'Don't Ask Don't Tell,' along with an example of 'bachelor living.'

John Jacob H posts a video on 'open carry.' 

Days of our Trailers says 'the buck doesn't stop here.'  Take a look to see what he means.

Every Blade of Grass writes about the days of vintage computers.  Funny thing about that.  My first personal computer was one I bought at a pawn shop back in the early 90s.  But before that, some 20 years earlier while I was in college I took Computer Science, and, I will admit it was back in the days of those monolithic terminals that had to be kept in a special room.  We did programs on key punch cards, which then had to be fed into the computer.  At the time such knowledge was considered cutting edge, but alas, now it is totally obsolete.  lol

Standing By notes that 'the death panel strikes again'--a good reminder of the vast dark side of 'ObamaCare.'

Newbius blogs on defensive gun use in Virginia.

Nicki is under the weather and has a book recommendation to offer...

The Stiletto offers astute observations on 'jihad by other means,' which in the this case is multiculturalism.

21 Guns Salute provides a wonderful tribute to a courageous border patrol agent who lost his life in the line of duty as he attempted to keep America safe from lawless thugs who cross over the southern border.

Alphecca says that Obama is falling out of favor with Hollywood.

Pamela Geller has a bone-chilling story for those who still believe that Islam is 'the religion of peace.'  Note the sentence handed down by Iran, according to the terms of the Koran.

And after that, it is most definitely WEASEL TIME--the best political cartoons on algore's internets...and, as always, The Ol' Broad has 'em!

Astute Political Observation from an Unlikely Source

From the mouths of babes, as they say...

Conservative Examiner explains.

Often it takes a person who is educated in the 'school of hard knocks' to see right to the heart of a matter.

Time for a new assessment of reader interest

Hello, friends!  I hope you have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.  Thank you for supporting The Liberty Sphere.

As we head into 2011 I thought it would be prudent to assess reader interest in one of the central features of this blog, The Second Amendment News Roundup.

Things are constantly changing on the Internet, and I want to know if my readers are interested in seeing this feature continued.  If you believe it meets a need, then by all means vote yes in the poll you will see to your left.  If you don't care one way or the other, say so.  If you believe that the feature has outlived its usefulness for most of today's Internet users, by all means vote NO.

I want your honest assessment.  This will help me in planning for the new year.  You have until Jan. 1 to vote.

Be assured I am quite willing to continue doing the Roundup if most of you desire to continue it.  But, if there is no real need for it anymore, then I am wasting my time.  So, let me know!  And thank you for participating!


Several politicians are vowing to block the bill.  Newt Gingrich has called for a filibuster against it.  House Democrats have their own stop-gap bill that is entirely different from the Senate's pork-barrel spending spree.

Read all about it at CONSERVATIVE EXAMINER.

Lame Duck Spending Spree and the New Gallup Poll

The Democratic leadership rolled out a 1.1. trillion dollar spending spree in the lame duck session.  Citizens are so livid with this stuff that Gallup numbers indicate the worst approval rating for Congress in history.

Conservative Examiner has the numbers.

By the way, the 1.1 trillion dollar budget is 2000 pages and nobody has read it.  Sound familiar?

Brigid notes that most people seem to have no inkling of where the meat they are eating comes from.  Being the carnivore that I am, I live under no such delusions.  Some animals are meant to be eaten.  That's the way it's always been, and so shall it evermore be.
