From Soup To Nuts.
Some of the most enduring images of the great depression of 1929-1939 are those of long lines of obviously beaten-down men in soup lines… hungry women and children with haunted eyes. Shantytowns sprang up all over the country, called Hoovervilles in mocking derision of the disastrous policies that engendered the crash and the even worse schemes which perpetuated the depression until 1939 and the advent | Read More »
Article In Search Of A Title.
It’s not that I don’t have ideas for article titles. There’s certainly no dearth of material out there. Which, in part, brings me to the subject, which is that it doesn’t matter where I look, nationally, locally, or globally, events scream for attention. I want to fire off articles on each and every one of them. We are living in very perilous times… far more | Read More »
Into The Shadow.
Have you ever wondered just what happens to all those people we keep reading about in the news, and in the government’s seriously flawed demography, who have just dropped out of sight in this depression? Yes… depression. I’ve had it with the cutesy defining of a recession that in no way ended in 2009, as the politicians and their pet economic idiot savants claim. “Why, | Read More »
It Really Is All About Business.
This week we were shy of a couple of key technicians where I work. “So what?”, you say… “we all have to work short handed once in a while”. True, and no argument there. What is different, or more likely in Barack Obama’s America, what has sadly become the norm for many businesses is that we are all operating with reduced staff and management. This, | Read More »
Jerry Brown… Such A Clown, That Jerry Brown.
Another week of long days and longer nights. That’s okay by me, beats the hell out of not working. Makes it a little hard to write, though. First and foremost, our wishes and prayers go out to the folks on the east coast who find themselves in the path of Hurricane Irene. For heaven’s sake, if you’re in a position to get out, leave. I | Read More »
David Plouffe And The Hallucinogenic Pipe Dream.
I’ve been wondering if that paragon of White House fable fabrication may be on lysergic acid… obviously slipped into his cornflakes by a stealth Tea Party type bent on destroying the Wrong House narrative. The spin just won’t fly any more. We keep hearing the misadministration’s grandiose statements, just chock full of loaded and misleading terminology. No matter how many times they bleat their Marxist | Read More »
Another Barack Hussein Obama Achilles Heel In Waiting.
As if a 14 trillion dollar deficit, with his name and that of his party all over it, isn’t enough already. As if the House hasn’t zeroed in on: (a) The outright repeal of health care; (b) Dismantling its various components and provisions and starving more onerous items of funding to cripple them and keep them from harming the people or the economy. Barack Obama has done everything | Read More »
The Nightmare Before Christmas.
Wherever you live on the planet, the jolly red-faced gentleman, hitching up his pants around his portly frame, will have visited you by now. Er… no, I’m not referring to Barney Frank! The Christmas holiday is a time to chill out (or perhaps ‘freeze’ would be a better description, Mr Gore!) and try to forgive those that have done us wrong throughout the year. There’s | Read More »
It’s The Economy, Stupid!
It’s an amazing thing to see. After Judge Vaughn Walker ruled just exactly as he had telegraphed he would, the resultant uproar was bigger than I even thought it would be. I wrote about this on July 5th and predicted an anti-DeMarxist reaction. I admit it, I was wrong. People were far angrier about the judicial theft of the legal votes of Californians than I | Read More »
Eighteen Million Unemployed: Obama Blames Republicans.
Well, we saw this one coming. I, and other writers, have been warning the Republicrats in the Senate that their foot dragging on authorizing the sorely needed unemployment extension funds was going to come back around to bite them and, gee, what a surprise! Barack Obama made it the thrust of his entire radio broadcast to the nation today. I warned that Republican stonewalling on | Read More »
