    Our Indecisive Commander-in-Chief

       I will keep this entry short and to the point. I have been a police officer for 23 years. On several occasions, I have found myself in situations where I needed assistance from my fellow officers. They have never let me down. I know that other officers will always come to my aid when I call. And I am always there for them. It’s | Read More »

    El Rushbo: A Good Man Done Wrong

       There is not nor has there ever been a vast rightwing conspiracy. It was invented by the Clintons. They used this imajinary “boogie man” to deflect the harmful truth as it came to light and to attack their detractors. They were very good. Now the Obama administration has dredged up this mythical conservative creature. They are attempting to paint Rush Limbaugh and Fox News | Read More »

    The Great Conservative Unifier, Barack Obama

       I received a good strict southern upbringing. It was drummed into me that if you can’t say something nice about someone, don’t say anything at all. Unfortunately, I must confess that I have not always heeded that sage advice, but I do look for something good and positive in everyone. At times it can be very difficult. With some folks, it is much like | Read More »

    Keith Olbermann: A Tired, Worn Out, Classless Act

    Snarky and egomaniacal are two prominent adjectives that come to mind when I think of MSNBC sideshow barker Keith Olbermann. He is an extreme leftist elitist of the nth degree. At the head of the class he sits with George Soros, Michael Moore, Bill Maher, Sean Penn, Oliver Stone, B. Hussein Obama and Hugo Chavez. They’re all upset that we won’t get out of the | Read More »

    The Continuing Devaluation of Human Life

       The current healthcare reform debate has demonstrated how the different political factions, which make up our nation’s political scene, view human life.    The Christian right has been steadfast in their opposition to abortion, euthanasia and anything else that leads to the devalument of human life. I am an unashamed born-again Christian, and I proudly count myself as a member of this group.    | Read More »

    Harry Reid & Nancy Pelosi, the Poster Couple for Term Limits

       The American government was founded to be a government of the people, by the people and for the people. Our elected officials work for us. They are our public servants. But way too often, they conveniently forget this important fact.    The recent uprisings at the healthcare town hall meetings demonstrate what I’m writing about. Our career politicians of the democratic ilk are being | Read More »

    Racism is Racism, No Matter Who Promotes It

       Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was by far the most prominent figure in the American civil rights movement. His assassination was a horrendous American tragedy. In his most famous speech, he said, “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content | Read More »

    G-8 Insanity

       Reports from the G-8 summit in Italy state that the G-8 leaders have agreed to limit global warming. They say that they will not let it go over 2 degrees celsius. Humankind has always overestimated our actual impact on the planet which we call home, but these loons are taking this arrogance to a whole new level. They seem to be willing to dismantle | Read More »

    We Need Common Sense Energy Policy Not Cap and Tax

       The Cap and Trade (Tax) energy plan, which narrowly passed in the House of Representatives last week, is a farce. It passed with a 219 to 211 vote, which included eight turncoat republicans voting for it. This bill would substantially raise energy prices and would destroy millions of jobs. It would implode an already shaky economy. Not surprisingly, President Obama heartily supports it. He | Read More »

    Manchurian Candidate? Obama is far Worse

       Some have referred to President Obama as being a true-life Manchurian candidate. I would have to respectfully disagree. A true Manchurian candidate would be far more subtle in his disdain for our nation and for which it stands. Initially, he would be supportive of our allies and would display a stern-but insincere-resolve against our enemies. A Manchurian candidate would be the prime example of | Read More »
