Obama – Pathetically Unsuited to Lead
President Obama’s lackluster speech Tuesday evening, which was supposed to assuage American’s fears over the Gulf oil spill, in fact did just the opposite. Rather than outlining clear and definitive plans to stop the leak, he instead launched into his now trademark bashing of Big Oil, talking more about making BP pay restitution than dealing directly with the problem. So vapid and lacking in substance | Read More »
Cap and Trade. Big Brother is Here….and He’s Wearing “Green”
What is perhaps the most insidious and economically disastrous piece of government intrusion in history is about to be foisted on the American people. And nobody is paying attention. I’m referring, of course, to the looming “Cap and Trade” bill – the latest attempt by the American Left to take control of just about every aspect of your life. This ridiculous scheme is predicated on | Read More »
November 2010 – Will the “Legion of the Uninformed” Fall for the Democrat Propaganda?
In a recent conversation, an elderly woman I know remarked that she was annoyed that the health care bill doesn’t take effect for two more years. When I asked the reason for her concern, she complained that she “shouldn’t have to wait so long to be able to buy insurance across state lines.” Obviously I was dumbfounded by her lack of understanding – Obamacare has | Read More »
A Man, A Plane…and a Rare Glimpse into American History
If you want to understand a little bit about why they were called “the Greatest Generation” you need only view this remarkable film by Chris Woods. It is more than a movie about an airplane, or even about one man. It is a look back into everything that is best about America. An America that designed and built the P-51 Mustang, an aircraft world renowned | Read More »
Rule by Exception – How Democrats Screw Up Just About Everything
An oil company suffers a highly unusual event on one of their deep sea rigs, leading to serious environmental damage, and potentially causing a serious reduction in our oil supply, with a likely spike in prices at the gas pump when the affects are eventually felt at refineries around the country. And President Obama’s response? He makes the situation even worse by suspending exploration and | Read More »
There is No Right to “Feel” Safe
It was a typical Summer Sunday at the park on Lake Harriet in South Minneapolis. Families with picnic baskets on the grass, strolling around the lake, fishing, drinking sodas and eating ice cream cones. In the gazebo just next to the concession stand, a number of folks, myself included, had barbecue grills, cooking brats, burgers, and even steaks. A downright serene afternoon. Then, sometime just | Read More »
The Trouble With Mexico
When Mexican President Felipe Calderon had the audacity to criticize Arizona’s anti-illegal alien law, most reasonable Americans were rightly incensed. Filled with left-wing references to “racial profiling” and other language right out of the “progressive” playbook, Calderon’s speech sounded as though it had been written by one of Obama’s staffers. So when the entire Democrat caucus came to their feet to applaud Calderon’s insulting remarks, | Read More »
Obama’s Three Stooges
First there was the unutterably idiotic head of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano, who commented on the (thankfully) failed attack on Flight 253, saying with a straight face that “the system worked” – she even said that the “Underwear Bomber” was “properly screened” in spite of the fact that he was able to get on an airplane with his explosive device: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6V_Godcyq-s Recall that Ms. Napolitano | Read More »
It’s the Democrats, Stupid!
As time passes, it is getting harder and harder for the Obama faithful to blame George Bush for the nation’s economic woes. The polls clearly show that a majority of the moderates and independents who gave Obama the edge in the 2008 election would not even vote for him today. But assigning blame (or credit) for the state of the nation’s economy to any president | Read More »
The Double Standard – Only REAL American Citizens Have to Show I.D.
Civil rights and double standards: Gun owners are forced to “show papers,” but media say illegal aliens shouldn’t have to By Tim Inwood I’ve been watching with some interest the fallout over the new Arizona law dealing with illegal aliens. I hear the news media moaning that the new law “makes it a crime to be an illegal alien.” I’m not joking, that is exactly | Read More »
