Profit Does Not Matter
http://arkansasbusiness.com/article.aspx?zone=AB_DailyReport_Thursday&lID=&sID=&ms=&cID=Z&aID=111718.54928.123844&page=1 I may not understand all the ins-and-outs of unions, but I do know they tend to hurt organizations. They may have had a time in our history, and I do believe workers deserve certain rights and should be able to stand up for themselves when needed, but the cost of and corrupt nature that has become unions have made me an avid “union-hater”. http://arkansasbusiness.com/article.aspx?zone=AB_DailyReport_Thursday&lID=&sID=&ms=&cID=Z&aID=111718.54928.123844&page=1 The | Read More »
Porn Industry Desperately Needs Bailout-UPDATE
The text below is a diary I posted while the first bailout was being discussed. At the time, I wrote this very obviously as a joke, I along with many others needed a laugh because the whole bailout business had my heart rate up, and my moral down. Of course it was also meant to point out what all rational thinkers knew…if you start bailing people | Read More »
Saving the Planet, One Tax at a Time (Reaction-No Consequence)
Disclaimer…. I am about as Conservative as any 29 year old could hope to be. By the grace of God I was born a Conservative, then by the grace of my wonderful mother, who taught me how to think I have managed to stay that way. Even while my friends seem to be dropping like flies in to the fiery hell that is Liberalism. However, | Read More »
And On Christmas
Let me first open by saying a very Merry Christmas to all. Merry Christmas in the federal holiday sense of the word. Merry Christmas in my personal belief that ”Christ the Savior is born”. And finally, Happy Hanukkah to my Jewish friends, and to the Muslims Kul ‘am wa enta bi-khair! Christmas as the federal holiday, started by Grant in 1870 is meant to be a time | Read More »
Porn Industry Desperately Needs Bailout
I have just been informed in an early breaking news story that the porn industry is in desperate need of a government bailout. This truly is a sad story, as the dilema remains; does the government throw millions of dollars with no restrictions or let all those hundreds of men and women who have given their life (and very important body parts) to the industry | Read More »
The Palin Bashing Must Stop
Much has been aired about Sara Palin. She is supposedly a diva, who shops too much, is not ready on time, does not take direction, and throws temper tantrums.
The Need For Organization in ARand Beyond
I live in the “red” state of Arkansas. We are a strong Christian, conservative bunch, who continuously elect folks like Vic Snyder to Congress. It never ceases to amaze me that a state where folks do not believe in abortion, do not believe in same-sex marriage, has only 13 “wet” counties out of 75, etc, etc, etc, cannot find one viable Republican opponent for Blanche | Read More »
Red Ties v. Blue Ties
Watching Fox News last night, I noticed something very interesting. Almost every male reporter/anchor wore a red tie. By almost, I can honestly say, every SINGLE one that I saw during election coverage, was in fact wearing a red tie.
It Is A Proud Day
While I wore all black today, representing the mourning of my great country. A country that has been the strongest, the best example, of what a capitalist free-market country can be, I mourn for the possible socialist policies ahead. Of most concern to me is socialized health care. This probably is closer to my heart than to some as my husband will be a doctor | Read More »
Major Important Election Question
I have noticed several states, where the race seems fairly close being “called” early in the evening. What bothers me is the percentage of precincts reporting. At 10:00p.m. central-Iowa is being called for Obama, less than 14% are reporting in that state. Minnesota is being called for Obama…25% of precincts are reporting and the spread is something like 52% 47% Obama. How can states with | Read More »
I am not really good at math, but I did it anyway
I wonder how many people have done the math on how an Obama tax plan may effect them? I am simply taking into account income taxes. My personal guess is a) Obama cannot lower taxes on 95% of Americans b) that a massive tax cut on lower bracket Americans (if it could happen) would result in other tax increases on the state and local level | Read More »
I am in utter shock when it comes to how well Obama is doing. I have said on RedState before, that I get the young voters. They are naive and are likely in college or right out of, and have thoughts of sugar plum fairies still dancing in their heads in the form of naivity and/or ideology. So, I give a bit of a pass | Read More »
My Problem With Hate Crimes
I am sure this was covered at RedState.com. I have not seen anything on it here though, so regardless I will throw out my $.02
I Feel Palin’s Pain
I have been there before and I am sure many of you reading this probably have been there before too. Even as a young professional, having been in the professional work force only about eight years now, I have run into the problems it seems Palin is running into now.
My McCain Speech
My Friends, We face a most crucial time as we near election day. The next POTUS has an economic crisis, energy issues, environmental issues, and a War On Terror to deal with. My opponent would have you believe that his relationships, acquantances, etc., don’t matter. He may also have you believe that by talking about his character flaws, I am ignoring the issues.
Thanks For The Bailout Guys!
I was up on the fence on how I felt about the bailout plan. My thoughts were a)$700 bilions???? b)give the power to “fix” this to the same idiots that got us into this mess and c)there has got to be a better plan.
Deciding Who Will Win Is Like “Trying To Nail Jell-O To A Wall”
I am getting really tired of the “we have lost” comments, blogs, diaries, etc. In every job I have had, I have been something of an “agent of change”. The first thing I tell my co-workers, supervisors, and supporters is to drop the defeatist attitude. The words I cannot stand to hear above any others are, “well that is the way we have always done | Read More »
Pelosi Thinks We Are Dumb
I have not yet come to terms with how I feel about the bailout. There is the part of me that understands what probably has to happen, then there is the part of me that knows what I would like to see happen. But this is not about whether we, the tax paying citizens of America should or should not pay for the mistakes that | Read More »
Obama Really Wants To Focus On The Issues
For the past several days, mainly since the infamous “lipstick on a pig” comment and it’s aftermath, Obama claims he only wants to stick to the issues. He goes on to point out that McCain is trying to distract from the real issues with his attacks on Obama comments. Obama wants to stick to the issues important to America, while McCain and Palin want to | Read More »
Please Stop With The Lipstick
In hearing Obama’s “lipstick remark” a few days ago, I simply rolled my eyes. In my mind, the comment was not a sexist one, but more a quick jab at Sara and her very popular soundbite, “the difference in hockey mom’s and pit bulls”. Now, he may claim that his comment had nothing to do with Palin and/or her previous lipstick joke, but the audience | Read More »
