Meet your new state dept. lawyer and possible supreme court pick.
Harold Koh. He will be giving Hillary legal advice and Obama is likely to throw him right up the ladder to the big court. Yes, he leans left; Obama would be going against his own ideas of what a judge should be to not pick him; so the question is are Koh’s ideas and opinions yours; because one day they may be | Read More »
¬Meet Dawn Johnson, White House new head of legal counsel.
For those of you who hadn’t had the pleasure, you really should meet Dawn Johnson. This person will be the door for legal policy in the white house, allowing to go in and out what she chooses. Yes, I know it’s hard to meet someone of that stature face to face; but you can often tell who they are by their own words. | Read More »
Emanuel made 320k at freddie mac(Hello hypocrites !)
From the tribune article: Before its portfolio of bad loans helped trigger the current housing crisis, mortgage giant Freddie Mac was the focus of a major accounting scandal that led to a management shake-up, huge fines and scalding condemnation of passive directors by a top federal regulator. One of those allegedly asleep-at-the-switch board members was Chicago’s Rahm Emanuel—now chief of staff to President Barack Obama—who | Read More »
Dodd can Bite Me !
In my first edition of Bite Me Wednesday, I would like to address Senator Dodd; but first credit the source of Bite Me Wednesdays; One on one sport’s Papa Joe Chevalier. Papa Joe was a long time sports talk host for One on One and assigned every Wednesday as “Bite Me” Wednesday. It allowed for Papa and us to vent on those | Read More »
Sorry, lefties; you just don’t measure up.
I know righties are war mongering, blood thirsty, imperialists; but they’re also one hell of a group to be in. As eveidenced by the 30% more given to charity by conservatives, even though liberals make 6% more on average. And further evidenced by the 10 reddest states of the 2004 election gave 3.5% to charity whilst the bluest of the blue gave 1.9% | Read More »
You know, Lincoln isnt enough; Obamas greatness needs a real test-Cicero.
I’m quite sure Obama would think it appropriate and worthy of his mettle. So, let see what Cicero said, facing the same tests of private and public ownership and personal responsibility: “When politicians, enthusiastic to pose as the people’s friends, bring forward bills providing for the distribution of property, they intend that the existing owners shall be driven from their homes. Or they propose | Read More »
The revolution begins !(La Gov refuses stimulus).
Yes, “my friends”; the revolution has started with Jindal refusing some of the stimulus, “Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal announced Friday that he will decline stimulus money specifically targeted at expanding state unemployment insurance coverage, becoming the first state executive to officially refuse any part of the federal government’s payout to states. ” That’s awesome ! Refusing funds for some bridge that will barely | Read More »
Dave Ramsey punks Obama.
This was so great, I replayed the audio file twice ! On the February 10th show, Dave starts the show by going off on Obama’s speech on February 9th for using fear to sell the stimulus and saying that only government can solve the economic crisis. It’s seems that Dave has a philosophy that a leader that uses fear to motivate action in people is | Read More »
Taxes ! How much do you pay ? Find out.
Taxes ! We all hate them, but most of us live with them and never get stirred up as you usually only take . one glance per year at what you pay, when you pay the IRS. Why ? That’s not how you keep your resolve. Let’s take the summer gas price hysteria. Every week you filled up your tank and got more | Read More »
The time to act is now(this year), not in 2012.
I know there are many here that agree, but don’t know why. If you know history, economies run on cycles; and even the steal from us bill will only slow the US economy; it will not kill it. You can be quite sure that obama will have a free pass in 2012 if the economy growing again and jobs are being created; and they | Read More »

Al Gore says kids, don’t believe your parents-per Glenn Beck.
Now, I am of the full opinion that Glenn Beck is the radio version of the guy that stands on street corners with an “End of World is Near !” sign. I do believe if you only watch and listen to him, you will be stocking food, guns and putting money in your mattress in 3 months; but he does come up with news, | Read More »
How about a Thanksgiving pardon/commute for Ramos+Compean W. ?
As you know Agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Alonso Compean sit in prison for defending our borders despite questionable prosecutor charges at best. Every thanksgiving, the president pardons people and he has done the same this week. Now, the president has said he will not pardon them, but there is no reason that he shouldn’t commute their sentences. So, if you have some time; please | Read More »
My Big 3 solution, save the Big 3; let Michigan die.
I’m sure many here would prefer to see the US auto industry succeed, for pride, patriotism, security and jobs. Many have also seen that many foreign car makers are building cars in the US, so it can be done. I am also sure many Americans prefer American cars over foreign for many reasons and that will continue. As many may or may not know, US | Read More »
The president-elect of change now takes on the sun.
“Once I take office, you can be sure that the United States will once again engage vigorously in these negotiations and help lead the world toward a new era of global cooperation on climate change,” Obama said. http://www.usatoday.com/weather/climate/globalwarming/2008-11-18-climate-summit_N.htm This would be nice if all efforts and money spent to date have in effect amounted exactly squat. While the US has rolled merrily on the wheels | Read More »
57 states, Obama ? Are you referring to the 57 islamic states ?
As we all know, Obama slipped and said 57 states sometime ago and obviously meant 50. Well, i am no conspiracy theorist; but it looks like the organization of islamic conference has 57 states represented: http://www.stoptheaclu.com/archives/2008/05/12/obamas-freudian-slip-there-are-57-islamic-states/ I’m quite sure Obama did just slip, but it seems to me that it is not a stretch that he did not. Why not, 49, 51, over 50, 60 | Read More »
Depression coming, not likely.
I just thought I would send this information out as so many are still worried about the economy and some are worried about what the new president is going to do, so I thought I would send out some facts to put todays economy in persepective. “During the Great Depression, U.S. output plunged 27% in four years; unemployment neared a third of the work force. | Read More »
Prop 8 – says minorities are conservative. The GOP isnt over yet.
I noticed this from the prop 8 vote in california: “According to exit polls, whites opposed the amendment 53-47. But blacks supported it 70-30, and Latinos supported it 51-49. The polls have blacks at 10 percent of the electorate for this issue, with Latinos at 19 percent and whites at 63 percent. (Asians, at six percent, opposed the proposition 53-47.)” Now, i read that as | Read More »
