Is The GOP Dead?

  An economy in shambles, a campaign in which the incumbent completely avoided discussing his own record, unemployment above levels above which an incumbent had EVER (that means ever in history) won an election, the rapid fall off of the positives of the  incumbent candidate and six huge scandals pending DURING and election – with…

How Does A Kinder, Gentler Nation Discourage Home Ownership And Philanthropy

    Facing the self-described fiscal cliff, the amount of rhetoric pouring out of Washington unfiltered by the media conducting their own war of thoughts and ideas has completely obscured two disturbing concepts that sadly say a lot about the state of America.  Whichever plan is adopted, we are likely looking at the end of…

Why Is It OK To Pick On Wage Earners?

  Looming ahead of President Obama in the next 50 days is mandatory 11% across the board cuts for most federal government departments including devastating cuts to the Department of Defense.  As part of a deal cut before the election, these cuts will automatically take place unless reversed by new legislation.  The center of this…

Will Obama Destroy The Country Or Move To The Middle?

  America stands at a cross-roads and the next four years could be a period of complete economic stagnation coupled with continually exploding national debt edging the United States to a Greece-like fate with an ever diminishing position of power in the world, or it could be a period of recovery, healing and restoration of…

Pardon Me, I’m Confused – Reflections On Election Eve

  Nearing the final hours of this campaign I honestly keep asking myself a single question – what am I missing?  An economy in shambles.  The forced adoption of a health care plan that the vast majority of the country opposes.  A failed foreign policy that has greatly diminished the standing of the United States. …

A Simple Allegory About Taxes Using Beer

  Maybe people will understand Obama’s proposed tax system better if I use beer instead of taxes. Suppose that every day, ten men go out for beer and the bill for all ten comes to $100 and if they paid their bill the way we pay our taxes, it would go something like this: The…

  Proposition 30 is on the California ballot as the result of the Democrat controlled legislature’s failure to do its job and a Democratic Governor giving that legislature a free pass.  Reduced to its essence, Prop 30 will burden California taxpayers with an additional $6,600,000,000 in new taxes.  California is in a financial crisis of epic…

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.

Tomorrow’s Obama/Romney Debates Could Determine Presidency

Tomorrow night could mean everything to this Presidential election, or it could mean nothing at all.  Polls around the country have this race in an absolute deadlock (those polls not using the faulty modeling from 2008) and so tonight could mean everything.  Jimmy Carter was leading Reagan going into the debates and was swept out…

Prop 32 Most Important Ballot Initiative In California – EVER

Apparently simple on its face, Proposition 32 does three simple things: 1)  bans direct corporate and union contributions to state and local candidates; 2)  bans contributions by government contractors to the politicians who control contracts awarded to them; and 3)  bans automatic deductions by corporations, unions, and government of employees’ wages to be used for…
