    President Obama Calls For End To Catholic Schools

    President Obama made an alarming call for an end to Catholic education in front of a largely Catholic audience during a speaking engagement that was part of the President’s official state visit to the G8.  So much for the separation of church and state.  So much for the free exercise of religion.  Guess the First...

    Diabolical Bill To Prevent Public Access To California Government

    Attacking the very fiber of American democracy, last Friday night the Democratic dominated California Legislature quietly added a last minute “trailer” into Governor Jerry Brown’s budget proposal that would have returned California local government quite literally to the dark ages.  More than half a century ago, California started to adopt laws requiring that public business...

    Touching Video Between Troops And Cheerleaders

    On a day in which I am torn between anger and sorrow, this video was just what the Dr. ordered. The Miami Dolphin Cheerleaders put together a video to help lift the spirits of our troops stationed in Afghanistan. It was obviously effective because some of the guys created their own response video that matched...

    Rand Paul, Nancy Pelosi Announce Formation Of Joint PAC

    Obama Admits He Was Born In Kenya

      Startling the world, President Obama openly admitted today that he was born in Kenya.  “I have always thought American birth was an inappropriate requirement for a President and I think that my effectiveness over the past four years has demonstrated this,” the President said while flashes from the storm of photography illuminated him.  “Whether...

    Vicente Fox: A man with a purpose

    This is a piece I wrote for Widener University after hearing Vicente Fox speak at the Widener Speaker Series. In a talk that moved from Washington state to Colorado to Ohio, through every presidential library in the U.S. and finished in Guanajuato, Mexico, Vicente Fox, former president of Mexico, covered a wide range of topics...

    Tweets Disappear After Axelrod Exchange

      Responding to a tweet by former Obama campaign manager David Axelrod, I found myself entering into a tweet exchange about an accusation that Rand Paul was racist (see the story about that part of the exchange here).  After the exchange of about 30 tweets that I found to be stunning – statements that you...

    Standardized Testing And The Destruction Of America’s Education System

    It is a tough time to be an American.  Suffering through the worst and most prolonged economic downturn of the last eight decades, America has taken a hit right to the solar plexus of its psyche.  This is particularly true regarding the state of the American education system.  Television commercials and political campaigns constantly bombard...

    CNN Anchor Asks If “A Little” Anti-Semitism Anti-Americanism Is OK

    On the same day that the San Francisco City Attorney called using accurate quotes from muslim extremists “Islamaphobic” (CBS), CNN anchor Erin Burnett asked former First Lady Laura Bush if we have to  “accept” anti-Semitism and anti-Americanism “when we want to make change” in the Middle East?”  Please check the tags, this is NOT satire,...

    Obama Anti-Choice

      Rejecting an individual’s right to choose in almost every regard, President Obama is one of the most anti-choice Presidents in history.  While the President’s spokespeople have accused Republicans of waging a “war on women” solely because of abortion policy discussions, ironically the White House is against choice in virtually every other regard.  I don’t...

    What IS My Fair Share?

    If it has done nothing else, the “Occupy” movement has raised an interesting question – what IS my fair share?  With many in the 1% paying more than half of their earnings to income taxes (and then paying all of the other taxes and fees imposed elsewhere), the claims of the Occupy movement that the...

    Tragic Damage To Space Shuttle Left Unguarded For Mere Minutes

      LOS ANGELES – NASA and LAPD officials were stunned late this afternoon when the Space Shuttle was tagged after being left unsupervised for only about 6 minutes.  ”We are supposed to have at least two guards on duty 24/7 but evidently they both went to the bathroom at the same time,” said an incredibly...

      In an action that I can only describe as tragic, the United State National Park Service announced today that it has contracted to add the face of President Obama to the Mount Rushmore National Memorial near Rapid City, South Dakota.  Evidently secret negotiations between the Park Service and the private donors sponsoring the addition...

    Fiscal Cliff Purely Political Play For Democrats

      With all of the hype and bluster about the wealthy paying “their fair share” coming out the Democrats you would think that tax hikes were the be all and end all of future economic success.  If ALL of President Obama’s proposed tax hikes were implemented they would amount to about .5% of the total...

    Stop Listening to Politicians!

    Why do I say this? Is it because everyone knows politicians will say anything to get elected (or reelected) or is it because everyone knows that politicians lie? No, it is because it is a very poor predictor of what a politician will do or try to do if they are elected or reelected. Anyone old...

    The Presidential Candidates, Social Issues, and the Constitution (Part 2)

      Several years ago if you asked the average U.S. citizen what form of government we had, they would have most likely have answered; “A democracy.”  In very recent years it has been said enough times in the media that the U.S. was founded as a federation that I now believe most citizens accept that fact. However,...
