Fox News Channel’s Glenn Beck sure got it right today. I can see, within the first minute of this, that he was feeling exactly the same way I was today.
We’ve got a couple of things coming down the pike here at America’s Right, and because my time is stretched so thin, I thought I’d give everyone a quick head’s up with regard to what you can look for in the near future. Obviously, the economy and new budget are certainly on my mind and likely yours, so we’re definitely not done with that — in fact, we need to talk a little about the Republicans who accounted for 40 percent of the earmarks in the $410 billion appropriations bill. Also, we’re seeing that the Obama administration is seeking to reinstate the Assault Weapons Ban, so we’ll handle that as well.
I was able to obtain some great comments from a few conservative congressmen today about both issues, and I’ve been in touch with one of the attorneys who represented Dick Heller in the landmark Supreme Court gun case for some added perspective on the Assault Weapons Ban. All in all, while most of the upcoming material is still in planning stages in my head, I think there’s some good things coming.
Please be patient, though. Between the “Tea Party Revolt” on Saturday and studying throughout the rest of the weekend, time will be stretched exceptionally thin but I’ll be writing a few minutes here and there whenever I have the chance, so I don’t know exactly when new material will come up. Still, please check back every so often in case something forces my hand like the budget unveiling did today. Plus, you never know when one of our fantastic contributors will churn out something great.
In the meantime, get informed, get angry, and ensure that others are doing the same.
P.S. Incidentally, with regard to the earmark Glenn Beck spoke about at the end of the clip, the one requested by then-Sen. Barack Obama which will now be wiped clean of his name, I think we should all remember how strongly Obama came out in favor of earmark reform, and how he told CNN in April of last year that he would not be seeking earmarks for fiscal year 2009.
