I Want My Country Back!!

  A little more than a year ago a good friend of mine from the left wrote a very interesting piece about seeing a sign in a neighbor’s yard which proclaimed “I want my country back.”  Seeing this sign, my friend wrote, drove her to tears because she felt that “it was her country too.”  To…

Journalism As Profession Dies With Contrasting Coverage Of Bush, Obama Inaugurations

  Profusely thanking MSNBC for their “help” during President Obama’s first term in office, senior Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett’s remarks killed a little part of me.  A news agency should not be “thanked” for helping the partisan antics of either party, its sole job is to report the news.  Reporting the news is a job at…

  Following his not to startling revelations on Oprah Winfrey yesterday, cycling’s governing body, which had already stripped Armstrong of his 1999-2005 Tour De France titles, began to name winners for each of the vacated titles.  The task proved far more difficult than Tour organizers had anticipated.  “We called cyclist after cyclist to let them…

Can Obama’s “Hunker Down And Hide” Strategy Work For Another Four Years?

  Playing out before the entire country is a pattern repeated from four years ago.  President Obama and the Democrats use an electoral win to try to steamroll through a single project within weeks of taking office and then . . . hunker down and hide.  Four years ago a Democrat dominated House and Senate…

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…

I Am Right About Politics And You Are Wrong

  Living in a time of clear division in which a President faces choices that will mold our country in a permanent and lasting way.  Abraham Lincoln reunited the country with force when he faced the United States greatest crisis since independence.  Today President Obama faces a country that is equally divided and equally fragile….

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…

How Did The Media Of Woodward And Bernstein Disintegrate So Fast?

Reading the comments to many of these stories one theme is loud and consistent – Democrats believe what is printed in liberal publications or TV broadcasts (which is most of them) and Republicans read and watch the few conservative media sources. The one exception to the virtual liberal media stranglehold is radio which is predominately…

Immigration Laws Must Be Enforced – Both Parties Fail

  It would be fine with me if the United States deported everyone in the United States that is here illegally.  I know that I will be called heartless and a destroyer of families.  The truth is that the law is the law and it has to be either enforced or changed – until it…

Pay No Taxes, Get No Vote

  No one who does not pay federal taxes should have the right to vote – period.  We have finally reached the tipping point in America where those that have no financial stake in our government outnumber those that do.  More than 200 years ago both the Founding Fathers and philosophers predicted the day when…
