Earth day observations from someone that was there on day one.
I keep reading stupid commentary from people who are too young to have any clue what the first earth day was about. Born and raised in Philadelphia I was a Senior in High School in 1970. It was a beautiful spring, and April 23 was a beautiful day. Philadelphia was trotting out ideas and celebrations for the up coming bicentennial celebration so “Olde City” was | Read More »
Romney off the record?
In an article by NBC’s Garrett Haake in FirstRead on MSNBC about off the record commentsmade by Mitt Romney an interesting picture is painted of the candidate. While there doesn’t appear to be any way to verify this, and I wouldn’t trust anything from MSNBC I think there are some points here worth mentioning. Just in case the Romney campaign is seriously considering them. “I’m | Read More »
100 Years later, we still grapple with the aftermath of the Titanic
The largest man made moving object on earth. The peak of technology, luxury and opulence. The Titanic said a lot about the future, a future being defined by great advances of the industrial era. The shocking disaster had a significant and lasting impact on society. Not unlike the way the Challenger disaster shook confidence in NASA and began the end our faith in the hope | Read More »
What is marriage? Gov Christie vetoes “same sex marriage bill”.
Good for Gov. Christie. There remains hope that there is a place in the Republican party for people of principle. Maybe not in Washington, but that is another discussion. I want to discuss what marriage is and how we can protect it. I want to approach this from a different point of view. One that doesn’t rely on religious belief. One that is based purely | Read More »
Victory lap psychosis
Presidents Obama’s declaration to the end of the war in Iraq carries some interesting baggage. First, he decided we were not in a war, so claiming victory and an end to the hostilities seems at best hypocritical. Second, there is the small problem about defeating the enemy. Of course, Barrack Hussein Obama doesn’t believe that imperialist Islamists are an enemy or at least he seems | Read More »
Where are the town halls?
I got a bone to pick with anyone that is in Congress right now. Every time Boehner makes a deal, we get nothing, Obama gets 99.2% of what he wanted and we spend more money. There is no evidence that any conservative running for office would actually change the RATE OF SPENDING. And the reason is simple, it will send the country into a tail | Read More »
Republicrats – there is no difference that matters
OK Debt deal is done, truth is there never was a crisis. All a bunch of made up hysterics so people wouldn’t notice the democrats and the republicrats just passed a huge spending bill, authorized large tax increases and created a commission behind which they can hide when they increase spending and increase taxes again. It is all about spending in Washington, both sides want | Read More »
JB’s GOP principles not America’s principles
Clearly, John Boehner’s GOP doesn’t live up to America’s principles. WASHINGTON (AP) — House Speaker John Boehner says the pact he’s reached with President Barack Obama and other leaders of Congress on lifting the debt limit and taming the budget “isn’t the greatest deal” but lives up to the GOP’s principles on taxes and spending. - From an Associated Press article written by Andrew Taylor. I | Read More »
Not a ounce of difference: Republicrats.
We do not have a debt crises, we have a spending crises. It starts in Washington, which for those of you that haven’t visited recently is in a construction boom. No unemployment in Washington DC. You don’t get to a balance budget by “making a deal” you don’t get to a balanced budget by passing Boehner’s legistlation, you don’t get to a balanced budget by | Read More »
Winning the spending crisis spin
Note, the country doesn’t have a debt ceiling crisis, we have a spending crisis. The fact that the majority whip in the house is talking up the boehner plan as the only way to solve the debt crisis tells you he is not much different then a democrat. Sure he might want to spend trillions on just say no, as opposed to the democrats wanting | Read More »
