A Fool And His Money Are Easily Parted…Tips from an Expert
As the economy fails and stock market falls, it’s amazing to someone like me, what kind of ridiculous things that companies still offer for sale, or even more ridiculous, what a person, like me, might buy, even though I’m going through a ‘Major Financial Meltdown’…and I really should be buying Christmas presents…..and now that Barry’s in charge, can we still call it Christmas?
The lefty tax nuts must be going crazy
Larry Kudlow is someone I really respect. So when I heard him say on CNBC today that Obama is selecting a center-right economic team, I wanted to do some research. He made it really easy for me in this piece from NRO: But what’s especially encouraging is the appointment of Ms. [Christine] Romer, who easily could serve as CEA head in a Republican administration (just | Read More »
Obama and the Internet
The following is a partial list of Obama’s strategic advantages. By all reports, he began to put this together 2 years ahead of time, and Democratic operatives were perfecting the operations two years before that. All of this explains why Republicans almost lost in 2004 and again in 2006. 13 million e-mail addresses. $500 million raised online. 6.5 million donations from 3 million donors with | Read More »
Yes, money still buys elections
(Cross-posted over at http://change-congress.org/blog/2008/11/13/money-still-wins-elections). Amidst all of the energy and fervor around the 2008 elections, one thing remained the same: money wins elections. Once again, the candidates with the most money were able to take home victory in not just the Presidential race (Obama outspent McCain two-to-one) but in Senate and Congressional races around the country. The Center for Responsible Politics released numbers last week | Read More »
In the belly of the beast…
There is no point to this entry today. Just a few observations: Yesterday, I was in Madison, WI, visiting Capital Square. There is a weekly Farmer’s Market there that attracts very large, loyal crowds every Saturday. It was Obamamania central. There were college kids on every corner handing out flyers promising to pay $100/day working for “Advancing Wisconsin”, $475 if you work November 1 – | Read More »
Whose money is it (non-2008 election)
*(First a disclaimer: I’m not a republican. I’m also not a Democrat. I don’t particularly like political parties, and I really don’t like those two. That said when I’m voting I’m a lot more likely to vote democrat, but I have voted for republicans and will likely again in the future when I think the individual in question is the better candidate. I’m not voting | Read More »
Could all of the following be true?
This election has me very worried. So many things to consider. About a year ago I would have voted for Obama. I have changed my mind three times since then. I watch all the news channels, jumping from one to another. I must say this drives my husband crazy. But, I feel if you view MSNBC, CNN, and Fox News, you might get some middle | Read More »

Why did Barack Hussein Obama send $50 million to the Democratic Republic of the Congo?
Now being rather new to the blogging world, people can check all the facts they want to confirm or deny what I am about to post. I did an quick biography look-up on both presidential candidates and found some rather interesting information on Mr. Obama. Of all the legistlation that he initiated and sponsored, only one became law. If I am incorrect, my appologies. This | Read More »

The Truth About The Economy
Here’s some shocking economics for you… The US ranks #1 among all nations in terms of GDP. The nations that rank #2 and #3 are two countries that the US defeated in WWII and then rebuilt in America’s image: Japan (#2) and Germany (#3). Just the difference between the US at #1 and Japan at #2 ($9.4 trillion) is greater than the bottom 158 countries | Read More »
Some Sanity on the Exxon-Mobil 2Q08 Financial Report
Exxon-Mobil released their 2Q08 financials yesterday – and as surely as the night follows the day, the usual suspects have begun baying at the moon about it all. Business sense is scarce in Washington, so one wonders whether this baying is due to genuine ignorance – or is merely posturing. But given the big-dollar numbers that are the stock-in-trade of Washington, one would expect better | Read More »
