NSA Appropriate and Necessary Actions
I cannot believe how many people have taken the position that the actions of the NSA, tracking phone calls, e-mails and web searches are appropriate and necessary measures for national security. In a Breitbart article today it was pointed out that there are so many reasons why this is a bad idea. Forget they claim that attacks were thwarted based on these over-reaching intrusive programs. | Read More »
To the Obama Administration Holder is Just a Public Relations Problem
On Meet the Press on Sunday, Eric Holder is heard testifying before Congress denying any knowledge of a criminal prosecution of journalists. “With regard to the potential prosecution of the press for the disclosure of material, that is not something that…um, I’ve ever been involved with, or heard of, or think would be a wise policy.” The White House seems to be in full denial | Read More »
So, Whatever Happened to All that TARP Money?
I had no idea. Until I read this article in Rolling Stone I was buying into the fraud that the TARP program may have saved our nation. First, don’t get hung up on the obvious liberal montras that “It’s all Bush’s fault.” There is plenty of that in the article. Get beyond that however, and you will learn that Wall Street is the biggest recipient | Read More »
Social Issues Still Matter
Many on this site cannot understand the gay community. Many outside this site cannot understand the issues within the gay community. So, this diary is not written to address the issue of same-sex marriage, except that Mary Maitland said on Sunday that the issue of same sex marriage is insignificant when compared to the devastating impact of the single parent household in this country. Single | Read More »
COME ON DOWN!
I would like to take this opportunity to invite everyone in the death spiral states of California and New York to come to Florida. We have no state income tax and we have many programs to assist all you so called “greedy” successful entrepreneurs in your relocation to the Sunshine state. We have oranges, palm trees, tennis and golf, beautiful beaches, sunshine and a Republican | Read More »
Rick Santelli You Got to Love this Guy!
Rick Santelli for those who don’t know him is a commentator on the morning CNBC business news program Squawk on the Street. He is the one who termed the phrase the Tea Party when talking about protesting the big government and the high tax burdens placed on American businesses. This morning he was commenting on a WSJ op ed that brought up the hypocritical speakers | Read More »
Give Them What They Want!
I have heard and read all these comments about going off the fiscal cliff and how the Republicans should compromise. First, the fiscal cliff is not the right terminology (of course, it was created by the media). There is no cliff there are two factors: revenue and spending. The latest suggestion by our socialist president is that we should put in place the Bush tax | Read More »
Get On Board — Josh Mandel — Ohio’s Next Senator
It’s time to get on board. Everyone knows that the 2012 election is going to decide the fate of our great nation. Four more years of Obama and we will collapse into a heap of socialist malaise from which there is no recovery. All eyes have been focused on our Hope for Change in this White House Occupy Movement that has hijacked our capitalist republic. | Read More »
The Most Vulnerable
The words are thrown out there for all to hear as if it were some Oscar nominating category. “And the nominees for the most vulnerable in society are.” A Google search reveals the list. The IMF (International Monetary Fund) sets up an entire list of countries separated by continent that are the most vulnerable to economic crisis, and so, the search for the most vulnerable | Read More »
