All Good Things…Greatest Hits Week Coming!

Regular readers will recognize that our Managing Editor, Don King, had all but stopped posting.  At this point in his life, he is making some changes, including working on his radio show.  As such, he has less and less time for blogging, and is deciding to holster his keyboard, and fight he good fight in another venue.  We wish him the best in those endeavors. As for yours truly, I am working on various projects, my career, my Church, as well as training for ministry.  As regular readers will recall, I hung it up over a year ago after realizing […]

All Good Things… Some Major Changes

For about the last 6-8 months, I’ve been wanting to change some things in my life, and those changes are finally happening.  Now is the time to make another.   Back in the fall, when I met up for lunch with former CH 2.0 contributor John Carey, we discussed my future plans.  Regular political blogging was not part of those long term plans. Back in February of 2009, I posted Piggly Wiggly and the Porkulus, and since then, the CH 2.0 has been home to over 4600 posts, and over 25,000 comments.  At current, posting has dipped a bit, but the […]


In case anyone noticed, the site was down for a while.  Obviously, it is back.  Let’s just say that the hosting company saw that the server that hosted the CH 2.0 was having some problems.  That would explain the frequent outages that wee plaguing he site over the last few days.  So, the hosting folks migrated the site to another server and everything went kaput.  Apparently, the DNS for the site got screwed up.  However, the problem has been fixed, and the site seems to be working normally.  So, thanks for your patience, and let me know if there are […]

Site News: Political Scraps Gets a Makeover

For those of you that have been following our plots and and endeavors at the CH 2.0, you know that there has been a forum here for a long time.  In fact, the forum came before the blog.  A few weeks ago, John, Don, and I hatched a plot called “Political Scraps.”  The concept is simple: have a place for everyone to debate with one important caveat-we would follow President Obama’s  call for “Civil Discourse.”  That, of course, would force all involved to stick with the facts, and that would make things rather interesting. While that plan seemed to be sound, the forum itself was […]

Site News: I'm Still Here


Hey all.  I have family visiting this weekend, so posting will be light.   I’ll have some contributor posts for today, and the Sunday Link post will be delayed, so enjoy the contributor posts, and later on Sunday, I’ll have our usual collecting of links. As for comments, I’ve had to end my prohibition against bringing work home.  I have some projects at work that I simply cannot do during my day job hours.  So, I’m trying to strike a balance between work and blog.  Hopefully, I’ll have that better sorted out next week. Thanks for your patience, and for […]

Site News: Comments and Leftist Spam


If you hadn’t noticed, I haven’t had as much time for making the rounds.  Actually, I’m not even responding to many comments here.  I do apologize for both, and want folks that comment here to know that I do read each and every one of them, and very much appreciate them. Let’s just say that life has thrown me some curve balls lately, and while everything is all right, I do have a lot to plan and think about.  I’m trying to get posts up every day, and hit a few of the regular sites that visit here, so don’t […]

It's been two years??

Why yes, yes it has.  In my rush through last week, I missed my own Blog anniversary. On Febuary 11, 2009, I posted The Piggly Wiggly and the Porkulus, and the Conservative Hideout was born.  It was on a free host with crappy capabilities, but it was mine, and I wrote my guts out.  Snarky Basterd was my only reader, but others eventually joined.  We’ve seen a lot of history in the last two years.  Much of it unfortunate, and it will require a titanic effort to undo.  However, we’ve also seen the start of the Tea Party Movement.  We’ve […]

Site News: A New Conservative Blog

I’m pleased to announce the launch of a new Conservative blog, the Sentry Journal.  Run by John and Right Hand Man, formerly of The Current, the Sentry Journal carries on their work.  They are being joined by Colin, of Fleece Me, and yours truly.  We obviously have high hopes for this new site, so kindly update your blogrolls to reflect the changes. We are also making Sentry Journal the Featured Blog of the week. In other news, I recently discovered the ChillGuy33, the proprietor of Porcupine Rim, also has a Climate Blog, Global Warming: A Worn Out Hoax.  I’m adding […]

Site News: Featured Blogger of the Week

Well folks, we have what looks to be a busy news week to cover.  The  NORKS are being…well, NORKS.  Wikileaks is leaking again.  The Iranians have some shiny new missiles that can reach Moscow and Berlin-all ready for the nukes they’re trying to build. The lame ducks are still quacking.  Yes, it’s going to be a banner week. I had an awesome surprise today.  After working late, and getting home, I checked the tracker, and saw a lot of traffic from The Other McCain.  I went over there, thinking that I was linked.  I then saw that I was beyond […]
