Why Christine O’Donnell won in four words
John Boehner’s dumb idea. That’s right. John Boehner decides to go on national television and suggest that he would do the same thing as the Democrats. Raise taxes. From Greensville Delaware. On Friday, independents in Delaware, a group that makes up the majority of the people that work in the same office where I work, were discouraged. Christine O;Donnell was their choice but | Read More »
One Nation with liberty and justice for none
As a youngster growing up in the Delaware Valley in the late 1950′s and early 1960′s I had a unique exposure to the language of segregationists, because my mother’s family was from the Tide Water area of Virginia, and her roots went back several generations. So visits to the family helped me to recognize the forces at work for and against segregation. What I learned | Read More »
Connecting the ObamaDots
There doesn’t appear to be a logical explanation for President Obama’s position. The economy is moving in the right direction? Really. He had to burn up enough carbon offsets to make a thousand families rich to fly to Racine and state “the economy is moving in the right direction”. This is the comments of someone really disconnected from reality. Which brings me to the dots. | Read More »
Reflections on Leadership: McChrystal
The discussion about McChrystal seems to involve President Obama’s decisiveness. Many of the commentators feel McChrystal should be sacked, so Obama can prove he is a man, a man willing to loose a war to save face. Others say, McChrystal is the general we have to have and you have to keep him, which would make Obama look like a man, a man willing to | Read More »
NY incident – dangerous new level of attack
Soldiers don’t commit suicide, though they may be willing to die for there cause. Faisal Shahzad’s mission looks like a probe by a sophisticated enemy planning to infiltrate the US and carry out interdiction strikes against American targets. This is a dangerous change of tactics. Connect the DOTS…..

Commander in Chief fails to do job.
The government has a plan in place to protect the coastline in the event of an oil spill. Ownership and responsibility for managing the crises lies with the US Coast Guard. An Admiral in the Coast Guard is given the task of assessing any and assuming responsibility for managing the response. This makes sense. An admiral, appointed by the President and confirmed by the Senate | Read More »
Obama is scared, and not about civil rights
The Arizona laws that make it a crime to be undocumented is a threat to Obama and his supporters. But not because it will infringe on civil rights. Obamacare, Cap & Trade, Financial Regulation reform, and a whole host of ideas the fringe elements in control of the Democrat party are putting forth all infringe on civil liberties. Big time! At the rate they are | Read More »
Words matter – Says Former President
Of course words matter, such as, “I never had sex with that woman”. So when former President Bill Clinton decides to lecture tea party patriots on the slippery slope of anti-government rhetoric I am amused. (H/T Drudge Report) How about the words “”I do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of | Read More »
Would you buy a used car from these people?
The democrats are behaving as if the American people do not understand what is in there health insurance, or for that matter what the government is doing. The idea that passing the bill will give the American people the opportunity to see what they get and like it, but that they don’t need to know more than that now is driving Nancy, Harry and The | Read More »
A changing pardigm – can the Republicans adapt?
There is a changing political paradigm, and to survive the Republicans need to understand what is different. The era of Activist Federalism ushered in with John F Kennedy is giving way to a new Scalable Local Activist paradigm. People sent to Washington aren’t going to solve problems. Washington is the problem, and they are being sent there for damage control.
