    Obama's Energy Policy

    by Jim Mullen

    Barack Obama is doing the liberal limbo in a desperate attempt to remain under the radar in a sneak attack on the American people. His new energy policy is the same energy policy that he promulgated from his early budding as a community organizing, Marxist from Chicago. It is, and always has been, about redistribution of income and wealth and his support of environmental extremists.

    Notwithstanding his clever rhetoric, Obama’s policies are best summed up quickly and succinctly; kill coal, stop drilling for oil and gas, regulate, regulate, regulate, and of course demonize and diminish anyone in the energy business. He envisions windmills and solar panels replacing traditional forms of energy, as well as burning more of our food in automobiles. By subsidizing Mega Corporate farms even more than the $5 billion per year currently wasted on this misguided folly, food prices will continue to climb.

    It's Make or Break for the GOP

    by Robert Arvay

    The time has come.  The next few hours will make or break the Republican Party.  It’s where the rubber meets the road, where we separate the men from the boys, the sheep from the goats--- insert your own cliché.  They’re all appropriate.

    If the Republicans cave in on the budget battle, it’s all over for them.  They will no longer have any credibility on fiscal issues.  And the people who will deliver the coup de grace will not be the Democrats, but rather, other Republicans.

    Shortly after the Republicans wave the white flag, there will be no Republican party, none except in name only.

    The Tea Party will rise.

    TBP Praiseworthy: April 1, 2011

    We had a truly wonderful birthday week at The Bold Pursuit! On March 25, 2009, I published my first blog on the original blog page.
     

    During the past two years,The Bold Pursuit has evolved from a simple page to a full website with columnists, staff (we need volunteers!), five blog channels, content partners and more. Thank you, readers, for supporting us, visiting our website and encouraging all of us to keep working and staying true to our mission.

    Below are some of the articles and best wishes that were submitted for TBP Turns Two week:

    Author, columnist and Fox News contributor, Erik Rush, sent his best wishes for our two-year milestone in Happy Birthday ... Acknowledging Those Who "Get It" 

    Hearkening back to your premier 2009 entry, “I Get It”: It is important that we acknowledge and support those who do get it. Obviously, there are a lot of folks who don’t, or who do get it but can’t articulate the message effectively. Then there are those who just want to get noticed, for better or worse. When people are out there spreading the words of wisdom, liberty, and patriotism consistently and without receiving all those kudos, it becomes pretty apparent that they’re not in it for the glory. They are, of course, the ones we want to see acknowledged, because they deserve it! ... 

    Happy Birthday

    Robert Arvay, a frequent contributor to The Bold Pursuit, offered these kind words, "From The Patriot's Notepad:

    With all the very, very many websites devoted to political and social discussion, The Bold Pursuit is one of the few which combine high intellectual standards with ordinary common sense. I am privileged to have been allowed to be a small part of this enterprise, and I wish it many more years of ever greater success.... "From the Patriot's Notepad"

    Our Monday columnist, John Wayne Tucker, dedicated a column to The Bold Pursuit: The Anniversaries of Freedom

    "He was not a Republican, nor was he a Democrat, having lived long before either of those parties would be conceived. Yet, both parties hail him as one of the greatest men to have served our country. He was a governor of Virginia, ambassador to France, author of the Declaration of Independence, our first Secretary of State to George Washington and thus at the heart of the first Political Party Controversy as he fought with Alexander Hamilton over the powers of the Federal Government. As such, he became the leader of the Anti-Federalists and champion of the common man and the principle proponent of an Agrarian Society in America. He was our third President ... click here for the full article: The Anniversaries of Freedom

    Our Senior Editor and Advisor, Genevieve, penned her personal greetings in "TBP Celebrates Our 2nd Birthday!"

    "What began 2 years ago as a mission to “provide an environment for political coverage and commentary, as well as motivate and support efforts to protect our country, our Constitution and citizens” has developed into an excellent resource of perspectives and beliefs of Conservative Patriots.

    We were moved by another personal story, one in which many of us can relate, by Cynthia Toney: Never Say Never, Never Say Die

    On this, the second anniversary of the founding of The Bold Pursuit, I am reminded of an anniversary of my own.

    "Seventeen years ago this month, I officially became a Republican... "Never Say Never, Never Say Die"

    The cherry on our cake was a fun cartoon created for TBP by Luis Sandoval (righthandedcartoons.com) You'll have to visit the site to see this funny, but affectionate tribute (BTW, that is Thomas Jefferson sneaking up behind me : )  http://www.theboldpursuit.com/tbp-journal/2011/3/25/congratulations-on-your-first-two-years.html

    Thank you readers, writers, editor and staff for a memorable two years. We invite all of you to join us on our quest and be "... bold in the pursuit of knowledge, never fearing to follow truth and reason to whatever results they led..." (Thomas Jefferson).

    Happy Birthday -- Acknowledging Those Who "Get It"

     

    Hearkening back to your premier 2009 entry, “I Get It”: It is important that we acknowledge and support those who do get it. Obviously, there are a lot of folks who don’t, or who do get it but can’t articulate the message effectively. Then there are those who just want to get noticed, for better or worse. When people are out there spreading the words of wisdom, liberty, and patriotism consistently and without receiving all those kudos, it becomes pretty apparent that they’re not in it for the glory. They are, of course, the ones we want to see acknowledged, because they deserve it!


    That said, I’d like to acknowledge everyone at The Bold Pursuit with sincere Happy Birthday wishes, and with my wishes that you continue to grow, teach, and gain the recognition you deserve. We’ve got your back!

    TBP Celebrates Our 2nd Birthday!

    by Genevieve

    What began 2 years ago as a mission to “provide an environment for political coverage and commentary, as well as motivate and support efforts to protect our country, our Constitution and citizens” has developed into an excellent resource of perspectives and beliefs of Conservative Patriots. The Bold Pursuit encourages a courteous exchange of ideas and opinions rather than an uncivil discourse. It is refreshing. 

    The dedication and commitment to create an outlet for information that will help guard and defend our freedoms is obvious. The uncluttered format promotes pleasurable reading of the published articles.

    I have discovered a setting where I can improve my understanding of the political issues that face our nation today. I appreciate the opportunity to participate in this worthwhile endeavor.

    Never Say Never, Never Say Die

    by Cynthia Toney

    On this, the second anniversary of the founding of The Bold Pursuit, I am reminded of an anniversary of my own.
     
    Seventeen years ago this month, I officially became a Republican.
     
    Yes, ladies and gentlemen, I previously was a Democrat – one of those young people whose hearts bled at the thought of anyone having to go without (without government help) – and willing to sacrifice (pay more taxes) for the government to help as many people as possible.
     
    My attitude toward being an informed, involved member of the voting community was: “I’ll NEVER be interested in politics.” In my opinion, whoever was in Washington would take care of things, because that’s what we paid them to do.
     
    Imagine such confidence placed in politicians from a woman who didn’t trust her husband to put the trash out on time.
     
    Don’t get me wrong – I voted in every election. I cast my ballot for whichever Democrat had the most clever or most frequently run commercials because that was the candidate who was permanently fixated in my head.

    I Get It

    February, 19, 2009

    by Clio

    The day before the Inauguration, I was in my car driving home from the gym. As I turned down one street, I noticed a little house on my left; it was festooned with US flags, garlands, and twinkle lights. An African-American woman was on the porch excitedly chatting on her cellphone while continuing to adorn her home. Her countenance radiated enthusiasm, pride, patriotism and joy.

    I realized that this lady’s happiness was in sharp contrast to my own disappointment and bewilderment over the man who won the vote for President.

    Race and Racists: Liberal Bias and the Census Bureau

    by Cynthia Toney

    Growing up, I never thought my fellow Americans of Mexican descent were any other race but white – although their skin was brown. The same was true for other individuals of my acquaintance whose ethnic surnames were difficult to pronounce and whose skin color was sometimes, but not always, darker than mine.
     
    I was correct.
     
    The liberal media, the White House and left-wing political interests are trying to convince the American public that only European whites are white; anyone with a trace of African heritage is black and any individual who does not fall into one of those two groups must be considered “another race.” 
    The Census Bureau disagrees.

    A Tear Drop Fell from Heaven

    by Sandy Stringfellow 


    A tear drop fell from Heaven
    From a mote in God's eye
    Reflecting consternation
    Rippling the sea of time

    He said, "I gave you Freedom
    And a place to make it grow
    In the land you call America
    To be loved with heart and soul"

    "A place to be a beacon
    For all the world to see
    Where individuals compete
    In My land of Liberty"

    "I inspired your Founding Fathers
    Great men of moral strength
    With appreciation and humility
    They gave thanks to Me"

    "My Son showed you the Way
    Through His words and deeds
    To guide you and provide you
    With everything you need"
