On Vick and values
This past week, the President again made the mistake of speaking without consulting his handlers – this time on the topic of Michael Vick. In this particular case, his comments came in a call to Philadelphia Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie, who subsequently shared Obama’s comments on Vick and the Eagles with the news media. According to the WaPo: The president has not spoken publicly about | Read More »
A Failure To Grasp: The Two Party System
I am often ridiculed by fellow conservatives for bringing up even the idea of third parties. The continual response is basically that in concept they’re good, but in reality they’re not. Sometimes theory doesn’t translate well into reality; case in point, Marxism/communism.

Joe Barton’s Folly – Congress Has Nothing More Important to Do Than to Run College Football?
I honestly don’t know what the hell happens to these people when they get to Washington. That city really is a deadly disease.

Killeen (TX) Kaddish (Will the NFL do it this Sunday?)
Our troops deserve to be honored more. The tragedy at Foot Hood (Killeen, TX) just shows the great debt that we owe to our true heroes (not simply sports heroes). There needs to be a moment of silence before the national anthem at each sporting event. Before that moment of silence, the announcer should recite the names of the recent injured or dead who have fought | Read More »

Healthcare Reform, America don’t just say “fuggetaboutit”!
The first concern is that this healthcare plan is a one way ticket to monopolize a governmental controlled fiduciary health organization. The Employers are the same people we employ to run our government. That equation in itself is self explanatory, Government Controls America, Healthcare, Banks, Automobile makers.

How many channels are on your cable package? I am guessing a whole lot. Many (most?) of them go unwatched at any time in a given day, yet they still survive. The obvious reason for that is that the modern TV audience is much more fragmented than it once was, which limits the reach of advertising campaigns, or at least the traditional ones.However, there is | Read More »
