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 »
How does Boehner’s confession effect how we go from here.
I believe that I will not be able to support the Republican party as long as Boehner is speaker of the house. Since I live in New Jersey my influence is limited anyway, until I move. I am not certain where to turn for now, yes I know precinct captain, but I can’t deliver the answers that will win the votes. It is all about | Read More »
Give me liberty (from Boehner) or give me a third party
John Boehner whether or not he was drunk at the time, has no business being at the head of the Republican party. He is a politician, and had he grown up in New York would have made a career out of Democrat politics. He has no principles. He hasn’t the slimist idea of what conservatism is. I am a fiscal conservative, and a federalist. Not | Read More »
Radio talk show host fall for an “April fools” cyber Monday joke.
OK, I am heading home and during the twenty minute drive I had two different talk radio stations blabbing endlessly about that web site that wants to drone their product to your door. This is cyber Monday. I will tell you the truth, after a case of the flu, a tough Thanksgiving weekend and no particular rush to shop online. I ended up checking out | Read More »
The Big Mac Rule – Minimum wage increase failures. (updated Christie remarks)
The voters of New Jersey voted to raise the minimum wage and tie future automatic minimum wage increases to cost of living with a constitutional amendment. I voted against it. But I stand to win, because in a few years I expect to retire. I will rent my house in New Jersey and move to a place I have secured in Florida. I won’t be | Read More »
STEM Education – A different track and a solid foundation
In 1994 my oldest son entered high school. Our township high school was one of four designated by the Clinton administration for a pilot program in science and technology. Not your run of the mill advanced education programs, this was as the head of the department explained “a program that my colleagues argue makes the name of shop classes to long to fit on report | Read More »
Job Opportunity – Wanted one or more hippies
There is the old smart remark that if you can’t trust the police, next time you get in trouble, call a hippie. Perhaps it is too old for most here. But right now we got a big problem. Healthcare.gov is the biggest disaster to effect this country since The Deep Water Horizon explosion. More people are effected. But unlike BP’s executives who were scared to | Read More »
Time to turn the picture of Reagan face to the wall
Elsewhere Strieff argues that the compromise to not fight on abortion is the main reason that the Republican party cannot succeed. I have a different view, and believe that for the Republican party, or any party to succeed it is important to address the issues of today. While most people believe abortion is wrong, it is not forcefully imposed. No one, yet says that an | Read More »
