Wonder what you would find if you frisked the Republican tidal wave that hit America a few weeks ago?

Answer: It’s still coming in.

The Hill reports:

Rep. Solomon Ortiz (D-Texas) conceded defeat to Republican challenger Blake Farenthold late Monday after the recount he requested barely made a dent in the Republican’s election night lead. Farenthold’s final margin of victory stood at 648 votes.

Farenthold’s victory completes one of 2010’s biggest upsets on the House side and brings the number of GOP House gains this year to 62.

Yeah, that’s right! Not even rubber ducky pajamas and a scantily clad woman can block the Republican tidal wave from hitting Texas’ 27th congressional district!

Unfortunately for Democrats, there are still a few races out there being decided by the courts. Keep the U.S. House seats coming!

Rep. Sheila Jackson (D-TX-18).

Wonder what you would find if you frisked the comments made by U.S. Rep. Sheila Jackson-Lee (D-TX)?

Answer: Something went wrong during her education process.

Reminder: This lady somehow made it through Yale and onto the University of Virginia Law School…

Moe Lane – from Red State – did the congresswoman a favor and pointed out a slight flaw:

For the benefit of any natural born damned fools that may have wandered in: there is no South Vietnam anymore.  It was conquered by North Vietnam in 1975, shortly after a Democratic Congress – yes, the same political party as Rep. Jackson-Lee’s – defunded the defense of South Vietnam, in defiance of our promises made to that unhappy country as part of the cease-fire that ended the Vietnam War.  They are not living together side by side as two countries.  Because, well, again, the North Vietnamese conquered the South.

Oops! Does Rep. Jackson-Lee’s ignorance stop there? Of course not! The congresswoman told the NAACP this week that those who wore sheets lifted them off and are now wearing tea party clothing:

And I thank you professor very much. I’m going to be engaging you with those very powerful numbers that you have offered on what the tea party recognizes, uh, or is recognized as. Might I add my own P.S.? All those who wore sheets a long time ago have now lifted them off and started wearing [applause], uh, clothing, uh, with a name, say, I am part of the tea party. Don’t you be fooled.  [voices: “That’s right.”, applause] Those who used to wear sheets are now being able to walk down the aisle and speak as a patriot because you will not speak loudly about the lack of integrity of this movement. Don’t let anybody tell you that those who spit on us as we were walking to vote on a health care bill for all of America or those who said Congresswoman Jackson-Lee’s braids were too tight in her hair had anything to do with justice and equality and empowerment of the American people. Don’t let them fool you on that [applause]….

Okay… Now this woman is just being a complete idiot. Plus, I am glad she brought up the “people spit on us as we were walking to vote on a health care bill” and “called us racial slurs” issue, because it is completely FALSE. The ignorance of some of these liberals in office perplexes me at times. Andrew Breitbart already put that claim to rest when he offered a $100,000 reward to anyone producing such evidence. In the end, the place was crawling with cameras and no one has stepped forward… Funny huh?

Still not enough proof that this congresswoman lacked something in her education process? In 2005, she asked if the Mars Pathfinder had taken an image of the flag planted there in 1969 by Neil Armstrong. Seriously!?

And to think… These are the people in office that truly believe they can run one-sixth of our economy (health-care) and regulate our financial system. I don’t know about you, but this is quite frightening!

Personally, I think this post is enough proof that this woman needs to be removed from office. Lucky for us, there’s a Republican running against her! Please, click below and support John Faulk for Congress:

MSNBC's TV Lineup.

Wonder what you would find if you frisked the upcoming Dallas Tea party?

Answer: They are inviting MSNBC’s amazingly ‘diverse’ television lineup.

HAHA! What a great viral advertisement to promote the event.

Dallas Tea Partiers: +1. The Race Baiters at MSNBC: 0.

If you are interested in attending the Dallas Tea Party, it is being held on February 27th (12pm – 2pm) at the Dallas City Hall. Click here to check out their website. Special guests include: PJ TV’s Steven Crowder and Alfonzo ‘Zo’ Rachel.

Side-Note: To be fair, I did not add every single MSNBC host from their television lineup in the photograph above… I am missing Dylan Ratigan and he’s white too. 😆

Wonder what you would find if you frisked the fight between Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr. that was suppose to take place in New York or New Jersey?

Answer: High state taxes make the fight impossible.

I believe the boxing referee is counting down, because New York and New Jersey are definitely getting knocked out on this one:

It appears the Tax Man is about to do to Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr. what Oscar de la Hoya, Ricky Hatton and Miguel Cotto could not.

Namely, knock both of them out.

Out of New York, that is. And New Jersey, too.

Poor Yankee Stadium and Meadowlands:

But last night, Arum dropped the hammer on the fight taking place anywhere east of the Mississippi River.

“No chance,” Arum said. “Nothing would please me more than to have it at Yankee Stadium, but the way the tax structure in New York is set up, it’s impossible.”

It appears the fight will be at Jerry Jones’ new $1 billion-plus Cowboys Stadium! Wonder what’s the tax difference between the liberal East Coast and conservative Texas? Easy, there’s a lot of difference:

The answer is, no state taxes in Texas and a ton of them in New York and New Jersey. According to Arum, the fighters could lose more than $12 million in taxes if the fight takes place in New York and slightly less if it winds up in the Meadowlands.

Arum said that between New York State and city taxes and a tax levied on nonresident independent contractors performing in New York, the fighters – and the promoter – would lose 15 percent of all revenue generated by the bout.

“It’s just not economically feasible to do events like that in New York,” Arum said. “It’s ridiculous, really.”

The bright blue states just received an uppercut of reality, because no one likes taxes! It appears the East Coast lost out on possibly one of the greatest fights, but don’t worry… Texans will enjoy ALL the benefits and business that will come with the match.

Side-Note: With taxes shooting up faster than a firework display on the 4th of July, boxing promoters aren’t the only ones keeping an eye on taxes. Carlos Boozer of the Utah Jazz has also voiced his concerns in regards to state taxes.

As liberals spend frantically, I’d expect more of these situations to pop up in the future. Mark my words.
