Hung up on Legacy issues
How important is eliminating the funding for Planned Parenthood? From the calls by conservatives you would think that this is a budget buster. The question here is can legacy Republicans in leadership be trusted to run the country any better than the Democrats. Or do they simply want to run it off the rails in a different direction? Last month, February 2011, the US set a | Read More »
Calling for all governors to ban mandatory union participation
The Legislators of Wisconsin decided to channel Reagan, and deal with the trouble makers. The protestors storming the capital are nothing more than a a bunch thugs attempting to use violence and terror to achieve what they can’t get through legitimate means. It shows that government union affiliated employees should not be trusted with our money, our safety and especially with our children. But it | Read More »
Get the story straight: SPENDING CUTS – Change America Wants!
There is no budget. The Democrats who controlled congress wrote laws that never had broad based consent. They passed these laws in nefarious ways, using a combination of strong arm tactics, out right bribes and middle of the night shenanigans. They are immensely unpopular and expensive. But the Democrats, being ever immature and irrational never passed a budget. A continuing resolution is coming up soon. | Read More »
Paranoia or why the TSA union deal bothers me.
A while back, before Barack Obama became POTUS, he suggested that America would be better off if they had a national police force equiped, funded and trained like the American Military. What a hoot! Candidate Obama said explained it was about reducing crime and being safe on the streets. Then the TSA starts getting agressive. They are aggresive in air ports.

Dred Scott within the mainstream of judicial opinion once too!
I cannot believe that President Obama of all people would be so tone deaf as to allow the official response posted by Stephanie Cutter.

This ruling is well out | Read More »
Tactics on applied power – DEMS vulnerable on this:
The President is vulnerable here: I am proposing that starting this year, we freeze annual domestic spending for the next five years. This would reduce the deficit by more than $400 billion over the next decade, and will bring discretionary spending to the lowest share of our economy since Dwight Eisenhower was president. -State of the Union Address.

SOTU: A laundry list of progressive failures
No, I did not watch the President give the speech. He is an actor, acting like a President. I tried but couldn’t get past the feeling that I was back in college being lectured by some arrogant bow tie wearing tenured professor that knew everything, pushing some absolute fact that over the last four decades has also turned out to fail the test of time. Of course that was | Read More »
The need for an Ecomomic Impact Study
The benefits of environmental regulations to America have been funded by prosperity. It 2008 Americans voted to end prosperity. But without prosperity there will be no money available, no reserves to call on and no interest in environmental protection. The solution to finding a balance is to develop a model for an economic impact study. This is particularly important in light of the Obama’s administrations implementing an | Read More »
Socialized Med from the Republicans
Two points. 1. Someone pays for people who have no limit on insurance or do not have insurance now. If they are poor, it is charity or the government. If the are working class, or middle class they make payments, sell assets, or do without, if they are rich, they pay cash. Of those sources of funds one is born by the entire public through | Read More »
