The only logical explanation for the exchange
Ok, I see all the spin about how Hillary Clinton would not have done this deal. Was given the chance and refused. But John Kerry did the deal. John Kerry of the ant-war 197o’s fame. John Kerry never understood that his actions did not endear him to many Americans, outside the little bubble of friends of his that included Hanoi Jane and people like Bill | Read More »
Can I support McConnell or do we want real change?
Erick has proposed that we submit to the power that the Republican establishment has demonstrated in using their special interest money to defeat fellow Republicans rather than accepting the will of the grass roots conservatives and focusing on defeating Democrats. On the face of it this is a logical request. But I am having reservations about whether this will lead to any different results after | Read More »
The Washington Aristocracy is winning, the fight shifts away from the polls.
There is no doubt that the McConnell/Boehner Aristocrats have bought into the post partisan political vision of his royal highness and POTUS. Their vision of America mimicks the Democrats of fifty or 100 years ago. They have annointed themselves the earls, and counts of modern day America. As if that wasn’t obvious by the family tradition of inherited congressional and senate seats. We who believe | Read More »
Send lawyers, guns and money….Getting the “Party of work” working right
A rising tide floats all boats is the concept behind the Republican leadership’s approach to improving our economy. What you have to ask yourself is, does this theory hold in practice? Is it a lack of economic potential that keeps the big blue cities and the urban poor from benefiting from the benefits of society in general? Or is it by Democrat design? Reihan | Read More »
Which way are we heading?
A caller to a morning (east coast) talk show identified himself as a conservative and a social conservative. He called to make it clear that after CPAC announced Rand Paul was straw poll winner that he “and people like me” won’t vote. I understand this, and I do believe him. I am convinced that starting in 2006 many conservatives, in my opinion social conservatives, pulled | Read More »
“For what it is worth” – Buffalo Springfield. Proof there is nothing new going on.
Go back and listen you can find it on you tube. Somethings happening here What it is ain’t exactly clear There’s a man with a gun over there Telling me I got to beware The year was 1966 and the Democrats ran the government. Many people think that it was was all about the war. Or about racism, but they are wrong. Falling for spin | Read More »
It isn’t about single payer. Just Power and Fear.
For a long time now I have tried to bring to light the differences between Democrats and socialists. Most commentators assign socialist ideals to the Democrats. As President Obama has said of himself he is a master at letting people see what they want to see in him. People want to see a socialist, he looks like a socialist. He even was a candidate for | Read More »
It’s all a game, the only way to win is not to play
My local library was holding a hard back sale to raise money so I picked up a copy of Norman Cantors History of the Middle Ages. Funny, but the history of the royals contending for power with the nobles doesn’t seem any different then our own nobles, the beltway parliment contending with the head of our self appoint royal family in the oval office. It | Read More »
Injured by ObamaCare, my story.
I work for a large international technology company in an IT support capacity. Basically I fix things people use to to maintain and work with electronic medical records. The core stuff of ObamaCare. I do my work at a teaching hospital so I am intimately familiar with the kinds of issues that the (Not) Affordable Healthcare Act has created. On Monday December 23 I was | Read More »
Talking point for 2016 – Forget creating jobs, create an American “Industrial Renaissance”
Job creation is a distraction, government doesn’t exist to create jobs, at least here in America since the late 18th century. J0bs are created by Monarchs, such as the Saudi King who controlling all the wealth shares it with his population. Contrary to Barrack Obama’s self image, he was elected President, not King. His job is chief clerk of the country, not distributor of the | Read More »
