    Why the House Must Impeach President Obama 

    In America today just like in Lake Woebegone every child is above average and every child gets a trophy.

    As those of you who follow these wandering pages know I have recently re-aligned my life to turn and face the strange changes that are overtaking Western Civilization with ever increasing speed.  Like ripples whose shape and size shifts but never leave the stream, change is the only constant in a society careening towards a cliff.

    Whats Mine is Mine Whats Yours is Negotiable

    The economy is scheduled to plunge off a cliff in January. Back in the first two years after the Progressive’s November Revolution of 2008, the big government party enacted tax increases not scheduled to take place until after the 2012 elections. They also passed Obamacare which carries within it multiple tax increases, which are also scheduled to take affect after the 2012 election.  Combine these | Read More »

    America Lost in a Bubble

    All bubbles burst. This is a law of nature.  No matter from what material the bubble arises. No matter what forces propel its expansion.  All bubbles burst.
