More on the Failed Stimulus: Democrat Cannibalism

    Liberals taking bites out of liberals – whyever should I do anything but sit back and enjoy.   But for the correct view of history…. However, this is also most certainly going to be a campaign point.   How else will this president, in the face of mounting debt, growling gas prices and, despite last month’s passing jubilation, a continuing unemployment problem, explain why his near-trillion dollar | Read More »

    So, Warren Buffett would like to be taxed more….

    #%$!ing hypocrite! Warren tells us yesterday that he and his super-rich friends aren’t paying enough in taxes (and I just love how the term “super-rich” always makes me think of “Wile E. Coyote – Super-Genius”).  Super-rich Warren tells us: Last year my federal tax bill — the income tax I paid, as well as payroll taxes paid by me and on my behalf — was | Read More »

    Memo to Mitt Romney on the date of your announcement

    I’m not your biggest fan, but I’m certainly a Romney voter if you’re the nominee.   You just need to meet me half-way on something.  As we continue into the primary season, and on into the general election, people will continue to make the RomneyCare vs. ObamaCara comparison. I listened to your defense of RomneyCare.  It seemed passionate enough.   But you’re missing the point. There | Read More »

    On public employee unions – they just don’t care

    This broke my heart and infuriated me at the same time.   I can only hope that some good can come if it highlights the selfish, uncaring and, in a very real sense, evil nature of public employee unions. You may have read about the New York sanitation workers who staged a protest this past Monday, during one of the largest storms in recent years (or | Read More »

    Memo to Michael Steele

    I remember back in November when you hopped on a plane to congratulate Chris Christie for his victory in New Jersey.   On Tuesday night, if Scott Brown should prevail, don’t you dare!   It won’t be your party; and you can interpret that phrase everywhich way. We should all thank you Scott Brown for having the fortitude to persevere.  He worked every day, 18 hours a | Read More »

    Help spread the word for these people

    As all here know, people are protesting and giving their lives for freedom and democracy on the streets of Iran. Protesters are being arrested. Newspeople and their stories are being shut down, locked up, or worse. The Green Movement is begging for world leaders to stand behind them; but, through it all, they get much of the same. Which is to say, not much of | Read More »

    The Audacity of a Dope

    So, two minutes ago, the following tweet comes through: Let’s have a constructive debate. I know, I know. . . following Al Gore is idiocy enough (check out his young-skinny Al profile picture, by the way). I compounded things by clicking his link to “Al’s Journal”: A constructive debate November 12, 2009 : 3:05 PM Last week the Environment and Public Works committee, under | Read More »

    One “Simply Exhausted” Democrat

    I heard Scott Brown, Republican candidate for Ted Kennedy’s U.S. Senate seat, on the radio this morning.  He mentioned a recent League of Women Voters debate where Democratic candidate Rep. Michael Capuano, under heavy barrage by Brown, simply packed up his things and left the stage.   Leading Democratic candidate, Martha Coakley, didn’t bother to show at all.   I went looking for a story about this | Read More »

    Six Minutes With McChrystal

    I’m no expert on such matters.  I read and I consider.  But lately I get physically tense with angre when I consider the politics behind the dithering on our Afghanistan strategy.  I’m going somewhere, so bear with me for a moment. I get upset first and foremost because there are troops now in the field who know something awaits, but haven’t a clue what that | Read More »

    The Khrushchev Moment We Were Promised

    I’m sure someone can do this much better than I can, as I try to fit stray thoughts around real-live work. It’s just that, this comparison is compelling to me. I had to vent a few thoughts. October 15, 1962 – 47 years ago this week – our U-2 reconnaissance plane snapped shots of Soviet nuclear missile apparatus being assembled in Cuba. In the weeks | Read More »
