BLUEGRASS INSTITUTE Free market solutions for Kentucky
MICHELLE MALKIN Great blog site with interesting links

BLUEGRASS POLITICS If you are glutton for punishment
THE LATEST IN WATERSONGATE WHAS 11's Joe Arnold will join me at 10am to discuss Curt Morrison's Twitsplanation of events surrounding the probably illegal taping at Mitch McConnell's Waterson office. And it seems that as much as Democrats are trying to make the Not-so-Super PAC Progress Kentucky into some fringe group put together by two dudes no one takes seriously, Shawn Reilly has recently been to the White House to meet with some sort of Administration staff. Hardly a fringe character in my book. What did the Democrats know, and when?
BENGHAZI ISN'T OVER This is an interesting nugget from CBS News. It seems there are some folks who know something about what went down in Benghazi who want to be heard. This is why a grand conspiracy is hard, because people still want justice to be served. Let's hope these people can be heard and answers are finally forthcoming. Four Americans are still dead, and no one seems to want to discuss what happened.
ANOTHER EXPLOSION, MORE DEAD At least this time it seems to be some kind of industrial accident, not a purposeful act of evil. At least lets hope it stays that way. And please send some prayers up for the families of those killed in this mess.
THE PRESIDENT TRIES TO SLAP RAND PAUL Not literally, of course, but definitely figuratively. But the President is spectacularly wrong about part of what he asserted. I will explain today.
I WONDER IF "THAT'S JUST REEECHIE" IS A DEFENSE STRATEGY Reechie Farmer is in for more hot water. A grand jury will be hearing testimony about him abusing his position as Ag Commissioner for personal gain. If they hear half of what we've heard, he's in big trouble. Unless the Big Blue Nation is on the grand jury, then he has a chance.
UNION HATES THE OBAMACARE BILL IT WANTED PASSED Let's hope we get more of this as unions start to realize the promise of Obamacare was garbage. I do hope someone points out to them that everything they are complaining about was warned of by it's opponents before this bill passed . This is why the bill had to be passed by reconciliation without Republican support. This does NOT bode well for Democrats in the next election cycle.
ON THE BOSTON BOMBING If there are significant, meaning someone is in custody significant, developments, I will talk about them. But I simply refuse to engage in the rank speculation that is passing for news these days. The 4th estate is dead. And they killed themselves.
IF THIS BILL IS AS BAD AS I THINK Senator Marco Rubio may be dead to me based on early word of what's in this immigration bill. It's amnesty before security. Dead to me. And the bill has a nifty payoff to groups like La Raza. $50 million bucks isn't a bad day at the office if you're a group who wants to help illegals wade through the amnesty process.
LUCKILY THERE IS NO MONEY FOR BRIBES Read the second paragraph of this article. I guess we 2nd amendment advocates should be happy we've spent so much money at the federal level there is no money left to bribe Senators to support a bill that would've done nothing to stop the murders being exploited to pass it. Government in action is awesome, isn't it? I really feel like my interests are being represented.
