Liberals Drunken Joy Ride and America’s Moment of Clarity
Good government is like a good boyfriend/girlfriend, good acting, good management, even good clowning – it’s easy to take for granted… unless you’ve had the bad version. If your head is full of goo- goo fantasies, reality has trouble competing. Sometimes trial and error is neccessary. The sexy James Dean type who sits in front of you in history class might prove a distraction until | Read More »
The Noble Pursuit of a Buck
It’s amazing how much you learn from clowning. I did balloons at a ceremony that celebrated the opening of a new building at an elementary school out in Staten Island. The principal spoke of how the school had been seriously overcrowded for years and they’d complained and been trying to get another building without success. Then one day a builder who was starting a business | Read More »
UNINSURED ( and hoping to stay that way)
There’s been a lot of talk about the 47 MILLION uninsured in America today. The question is WHY are they uninsured? Some are illegal. Some want insurance but can’t afford it. Some have pre-existing conditions and no insurance company wants to take a loss by insuring them. An estimated 15 million are uninsured by choice. I fall into the uninsured-by-choice group. As a fairly young, | Read More »
McCain Has His Finger on the Pulse of America…in light of Rasmussen
When I read McCain’s remark “President Obama respects the Constititution” and saw there was no punch line…I momentarily understood the undying hatred he inspires in many conservatives. What WAS he smoking? And what’s gonna be the fall out if he’s caught with it right before the Obamacare vote? I mean how can Senator McCain, who spoke with such clarity on Justice Sotomayer’s lack of judicial restraint, possibly | Read More »
Communism=Killing People, How are Folks Forgetting This?
Diane Watson’s remarksthe other day sent me into a surreal Winston Smith like moment like “Am I the only one with a memory?” ”Think what you want about Fidel Castro” was such an utterly bizzare thing to say I actually googled Castro, brutality to make sure I wasn’t imagining the whole brutal dictator thing. Nah. From the Miami Herald: “According to Amnesty International, no other country of Cuba’s size | Read More »
It just occured to me that the most of the labels the left throws around about (the majority of) Americans who oppose Obamacare are some form of “ist” (for example: fascist, racist, alarmist, extremists, ideologically rigid capitalists) aside from the fact all these terms are derogatory – the suffix itself is a way of marginalizing the opposition. Not all ists are bad, but all “ists” | Read More »
A World Without Pain (warning: religious content)
One of the main arguments against Christianity is the whole ” how could a loving God allow such suffering, poverty, evil, disease, etc., etc.” question. The 2 main explanations I’m familiar with (grossly oversimplified) are: 1. God gave us free will and we mess things up ( if God chose freedom over PERFECTION we should probably value it too….)& 2. He uses suffering to bring | Read More »
Me of Little Faith…Discovering the Republican Party!
I must confess to indulging a bit of despair November 5th. I felt like America was being thrown out of an airplane with no parachute and nothing to do but free fall to her doom. No checks, no balances – just Obama and a Democratic Congress -God help us! Early on I sought denial and delusion (didn’t watch the news and read only upbeat reassuring, sometimes koolaid laden articles | Read More »
