The Ugly Politics of the Left

    I am getting tired of the ugly politics that the Democrats and media use to destroy the image of decent people to get their way on political issues. Here are just a few examples:   Arlen Specter – He recently got double crossed by the Democrats when we switched from the Republican to Democratic Party. Sure, Specter is getting what he deserves for making a | Read More »

    What Caused the Housing Market to Collapse?

    Thomas Sowell is one of the leading economist in the country and has authored many books. His book “The Housing Boom and Bust” covers why he believes the housing market collapsed in 2007. I have always liked Sowell’s views since he is a strong believer in laissez-fair economics. In other words he believes that the government should not interfere or should take a “hands off” | Read More »

    Why Obama Chose VP Biden

    During my corporate days I noticed a disturbing pattern. I noticed supervisors promoting mediocre or even well below average performers into management roles. I was befuddled by such decisions, but over time I was able to theorize as to why people made these questionable choices for managers. The reason a manager would promote subpar talent is because they did not want to promote someone that | Read More »

    Handicapping the 2012 GOP Presidential Hopefuls

    It is early, still over 3 years away from the 2012 Presidential Election, but it is always fun to try to prognosticate who will run against Obama. Unfortunately, I have not seen any leadership or a person that I think can beat Obama at this moment. However, a lot can change between now and then. Here are the early hopefuls:   Sarah Palin 15-1: I | Read More »

    GOP Surge?

    It is early, but Republicans are looking to start their comeback in 2009. There are two gubernatorial elections later this year that will be the first test if the GOP is going to start making a comeback. The two states of particular interest are Virginia and New Jersey. The Virginia seat is open, but it had been recently held by Democrats since 2002: Tim Kaine | Read More »

    Why Generation Y Tends to be Liberal

    Why do the young voters of Generation Y support Obama at a rate of better than 2 to 1? I believe there is an easy explanation as to why this is the case. For the most part Generation Y has had two extremes of parenting. First there are those parents that are not involved with the raising of their kids and then there are those | Read More »

    Nuclear Energy: Clean, Safe, and Efficient (Part II)

    The United States has not built a nuclear power plant since 1972, so all current nuclear power plants use technology that is extremely old and out-dated. Ironically, the same people that do not want the United States to use nuclear energy are many of the same people complaining about global warming issues. If global warming is a serious problem, then liberal Americans need to have | Read More »

    The Fairness Doctrine

    Nancy Pelosi is leading the Democratic charge to reinstate the Fairness Doctrine. The Fairness Doctrine was introduced by the FCC in 1949 to regulate that both the conservative and liberal points of view on controversial political issues are heard over the airwaves. I personally agree with this Doctrine however, the problem is that is not applied equally over all communications mediums. The Democrats want to | Read More »

    Nuclear Energy: Clean, Safe, and Efficient (Part I)

    I thought it would be good to promote a solid energy plan for this country instead of Obama’s favorite choice wind. I really think Obama is caving to a giant special interest group: General Electric (GE). GE not only makes wind turbines, but they are a biggest propaganda factory for the left. Remember, GE also owns MSNBC and give loads of money to Democratic cronies | Read More »

    The Weekly Obama Lowlights

    Obama Picks John McHugh to be Secretary of the Army. This is the good news of the week. McHugh is a New York Congressman and is the senior member of the House Armed Service Committee. McHugh is qualified and I doubt there will be any more photo op’s with Air Force One flying over New York City. I still think this is a political move | Read More »

    They Cycle of Incompetence, Fear, and Dependence

    History has taught us many valuable lessons. Too bad we continue to make the same mistakes. A good friend pointed out a valuable premise in what most societies from the Roman Empire to the present have in common when chaos rules. First, there is incompetent leadership which insights fear into the public as conditions worsen. Finally, the masses become dependent and cling to a new | Read More »

    GM Leadership Mistake: Brian Deese

    Barack Obama has slated a 31 year old with no practical business experience to run and bring General Motors back to health. Deese has been on the Obama economic team as part of his automobile task force. He has been in position for about 6 months and despite his calling for and getting 30 billion dollars in bailout money, the auto industry is going into | Read More »

    Why Fiscal Responsibilty?

    Why should fiscal responsibility be the top point on the Republican platform? I believe this should be the case for numerous reasons that I will outline below:   The Obama administration is adding to our federal deficit at an alarming rate, faster than any previous President. Thus far Obama is averaging about 50 billion dollars to our national debt everyday he is in office. This | Read More »

    A Republican Platform

    Here is another shot at a Republican Platform. Please feel free to comment (omit, add, reword, change, etc.). Fiscal Responsibility Eliminate Earmarks – Simplify Bills and Legislation to eliminate waste. This promotes transparency. Implement the Fair Tax – Eliminate the IRS. This will also bring in more income to balance the budget while reducing taxes on all Americans. Balance the Budget – Goal should be | Read More »

    Sotomayor’s Life Story is an Excuse to Legislate

    All week I have heard about Sotomayor’s compelling life story. Sotomayor did face adversity as a youngster. She is the daughter of Puerto Rican immigrants who did not speak English. She was diagnosed with diabetes at age 8 and her father died when she was only 9. She grew up poor, living in a housing project in the Bronx. She overcame these obstacles and attended | Read More »
