    Ferguson, MO – and a community in denial

    The shooting of Michael Brown, Jr. should never have happened.  That it did is a tragedy that has been decades in the making.   Since the beginning of Lyndon Johnson’s “Great Society”, we have witnessed the onset of federal government largesse to a socio-economic demographic, and while the intent was well-meaning, the results have been just the opposite.  We have witnessed, and still are, the | Read More »

    Senator Charles Schumer’s Seller’s Remorse

    Normally politicians only express remorse when they’re either leaving office after a bruising election defeat, are on their way to the federal pen, on their deathbeds or have penned a memoir where a little mea culpa might hopefully elicit a fonder place in historic annals, not to mention more copies sold and $$$. Sen. Charles Schumer (D-NY) speaking at the National | Read More »

    Chuck gets chucked — and that’s a good thing — for Chuck

    Remember almost two years ago when former Nebraska Senator Chuck Hagel appeared before the Senate Armed Services Committee for confirmation hearings to become the next Secretary of Defense.  Some of us cringed as we watched and listened to the hapless, but likable Hagel state that he would not be making policy.  How prescient were his words now that the White House has howitzered his derriere | Read More »

    Veterans put our own lives in perspective

    This year of 2014 has been quite a trying one from bee stings and infestations to sick pups and their costly surgeries/MRIs, not to mention consternation at my real day job with a new marketing platform that is forever in the hiccup stage.  But today on this Veterans Day 2014, I realize how very fortunate I am to be living in this country, and thankful | Read More »

    After today’s pivotal election — Obama unleashed?

    While media pundits, politicians and political junkies are concentrating on today’s election, I’m concentrating on the election aftermath.  Making an assumption that the House will remain in Republican control, and that the Senate goes to the Republicans, my question is whether the Republican leadership (now there’s an oxymoron) will have developed enough spine and backbone to finally stand  up to the President and his Executive | Read More »

    Bowe Bergdahl – deserter? traitor? No one’s talking until AFTER the November elections

    This is another installment of As the Stomach Turns.  As learned via Breitbart, via the San Antonio Express, the US Army has completed its investigation of the alleged desertion of Pfc Bowe Bergdahl, however, they are not releasing the findings of the investigation until after the November 4 mid-term elections.  Suffice to say, that if the findings exonerated Pfc Bergdahl, the news would have been | Read More »

    Ebola in the US – Just in time for the November elections

    While President Obama was recently touting his upcoming, unilateral enactment of amnesty for those who have entered the US illegally, “no force on earth can stop us” and “Si se puede, si votamos! Yes, we can, if we vote!”, our fellow Americans in Dallas, Texas, and now Washington, DC are grappling with the spector of Ebola.  Not since the 1918 Spanish flu pandemic, which killed more | Read More »

    Obama plays politics – no boots on the ground in “war” against ISIS

    One day after Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman General Martin Dempsey and US Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel suggested that US ground troops might be necessary to defeat ISIS, President Obama hurriedly reconfirmed to service members at an appearance at McDill Air Force Base that “I will not commit you, and the rest of our Armed Forces, to fighting another ground war in Iraq.”  The President further | Read More »

    A Detached President delivers a Detached Speech — and Obama’s Vietnam Begins

    Yesterday evening, a passionless President Obama stared into a teleprompter and breezed through a 15 minute speech on what his strategic and tactical plan would be to combat the biggest threat to American security to date. After reminding us that ISIS/ISIL is not “Islamic,” nor is it a “state” but a terror group, when more erudite minds refer to the group as a well-armed, well-financed | Read More »

    Becoming a “manageable problem” – Obama’s delusional view of ISIS

    Coming soon to a city near you.  As we approach the annual 9/11 anniversary, we wait for the other proverbial “shoe to drop.”  At least some of us.  With medieval barbarism, now prominent on the world stage in the form of ISIS, and brought into American homes via internet and television, we’re confronted with the real possibility of “it can happen here” again.  With the | Read More »
