Boehner, It’s Time To Move On
In an interview with CBS News (RE: http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2011/08/01/eveningnews/main20086598.shtml ) The question was put to J. Boehner: “Pelley: You were unable to get your own caucus behind your bill a few days ago. Do you intend to remain Speaker of the House?” His Answer: “Boehner: I do. When you look at this final agreement that we came to with the white House, I got 98 percent of | Read More »
Only In America
No, not the song from West Side Story. Today we wake up to learn that the concrete workers union, which is working on the “Freedom Towers” in New York, are on strike. Apparently they believe that they should get a raise during these wonderfully fruitful fiscal times. Ok, so we have come to expect that. The Unions, all of them, operate on the same rules | Read More »
U.S. Contingency Plan Gives Bondholders Priority
this is rather interesting. When We The People took over a couple of Private auto manufacturers, the bond holders in that deal did not get priority treatment. They were left holding the bag. The President’s friends and funders got priority. I wonder if ‘Bondholder’ is a secret word for ‘friend’ or ‘financier’?
Judges Make Laws?
According to the absolutely ignorant H. Reid, “the Democrats need Goodwin Liu on the federal bench because “the court of appeals is where law is made, and we need the finest minds in the world for that.”” Funny, I thought it was their job to interpret/enforce the law. I guess Congress has given up this Constitutional requirement, and handed it over to the courts. Perhaps | Read More »
What About the Baby Boomers?
Unemployment to 9% Jobs Created (?) 244000 Baby Boomers retiring at the rate of 10000 per day, 300000 per month. Isn’t that just a little bothersome? We are not hiring at a rate to replace boomers entering retirement.
None Too Rich or Too Poor
During his 2008 campaign, B.H. Obama declared that no one should be too rich or too poor. He also pointed out that he believed in transferring the wealth. Spread it around. Paraphrasing, “Take from the rich and give to the poor”. But I find this rhetoric just a little odd when we see his plans in action. As president, Mr. Obama has declared war on | Read More »
President to Speak About Japan Today!
Hooray! We are Saved! Japan is Saved! Can we expect to hear the infamous words: “I will not sleep until this problem <insert problem here> is solved!” OR “I will not rest until this <insert problem here> is put to rest!” I just cannot wait to hear his undying, “LASAR BEAM” fucus is put to Japan’s problem.
Now is NOT the Time For Emergency Oil Reserves
It would be a tragedy to release oil from the American reserves at this time. With many other options available, such as drilling in the Gulf or Alaskan ANWR, it would be an error now to release the emergency oil. This reserve is for real emergencies. The situation America is in now is not a real emergency. It could lead to one, but that is | Read More »
What Good “Jobs Report”?
I guess I must have missed something here. but I am not sure that I can believe that there is anything good in the latest Job numbers coming from the U.S. Government. Whoop-deee-dooo, we see an alleged 192000 jobs created in February. I say, REALLY? http://endoftheamericandream.com/archives/in-2011-the-baby-boomers-start-to-turn-65-16-statistics-about-the-coming-retirement-crisis-that-will-drop-your-jaw “Beginning January 1st, 2011 every single day more than 10,000 Baby Boomers will reach the age of 65.

Venezuela’s end of quote/unquote Democracy
Talk about letting the Genie out of the bottle! From Yahoo: “Chavez seeks power to rule by decree for 1 year Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez on Tuesday asked congress to grant him special powers to enact laws by decree for one year, just before a new legislature takes office with a larger contingent of opposition lawmakers.” OK folks, let me give you a “What If”. | Read More »
