The Hawkeye Cauci*

I am forever amazed at the number of people the media interview who don't make up their minds until the last minute.

If you are one of those, the first thing you must do if you are going to cast an intelligent vote is to examine your own core beliefs.

  1. Do you believe that life begins at conception?  YES  or  NO. If your answer is yes, then that will help eliminate some candidates.
  2. Do you believe that we are a constitutional republic, and that the Constitution is the supreme law of the land; including the Bill or Rights?  YES  or  NO. If your answer is yes, then that will eliminate some candidates, too.
  3. Do you believe that the Bill of Rights is a package deal, and not a smorgasbord to pick and choose from?  YES  or NO.  Again, the process of elimination.

Now, of those that are left, which candidate's actions and statements align most closely with your core beliefs?

Why give that man enough money to burn a wet dog?

The Knoxville News-Sentinel reports that embattled Knox County School Superintendent Jim McIntyre will be receiving
a lump sum of $227,256 in February, if his separation agreement is approved by the school board.

School Board, from its web site, in the public domain
That makes it sound like the Super is asking the Knox County taxpayers to bribe beg him to stay until July.

If you agree with me that it is ridiculous to give him such an exorbitant amount, call these School Board members today, and if you can make it, attend the called meeting on January 19, at 5 pm. to voice your concern.

Karen Carson 865-675-0236
Lynn Fugate 865-566-7414
Gloria Deathridge 865-329-9949

Go ahead today Big Mac. I won't be greedy. I will fill in for you until July 1 for half that much.

Ted Cruz standing room only crowd in Knoxville



The Take Off with Ted Tour started today at Farragut High School. WBIR reported over 1500 people in attendance. I think they estimated low.

Here is a long line waiting outside Farragut High School.



Here is a panoramic view of the crowd awaiting Ted.




Here is a shot of Ted  shortly after he arrived at FHS.




Here is Cruz's speech, beginning to end, uncut. You won't find this in the soundbites from the media.



 Ted is a Constitutional Conservative, and is gaining in the polls. I think he has a good chance of winning.

He is worth your support.

The Triad and the Donald

I spent many hours riding around from one missile site to another back in the seventies. I was in the USAF, stationed at F. E. Warren AFB, WY. Our goal was to keep as many missiles in the green, or ready to launch, as possible.

We were part of the triad, a three pronged nuclear spear:
