Republicans and Donald Trump
So, this morning, I saw a tweet promoted by the Republican Leadership Conference 2014 account, and I was curious because, you know, New Orleans is a two hour drive and I could’ve taken a day to go check this out. I clicked the link and immediately decided it was not worth a missed day of work. Why? The latest speakers to confirm are Donald Trump, | Read More »

Is Your Word Just Another Word?
Do we truly mean something when we say it? Do we believe in honor, in our yes being yes and our no being no? It’s one thing to give a caveat or when you make a proclaimation or statement; it’s something more weighty when you say, “I will…” To be sure, no one is perfect, and daily we all say things we either don’t follow | Read More »

William F. Buckley, Jr. on saying “no”
There’s a letter to the editor in today’s Topeka Capital-Journal from Sarah Karl. The retired school teacher writes that politicians are acting like children. “The Republican Party, at all levels, is at the 2-year-old stage of development – focused on saying ‘no,'” Karl says. “Two-year-olds are beginning to realize there is a world around them. However, they want the world to continue meeting all their needs | Read More »

Obama’s 95% Illusion
One of Barack Obama’s most potent campaign claims is that he’ll cut taxes for no less than 95% of “working families.” He’s even promising to cut taxes enough that the government’s tax share of GDP will be no more than 18.2% — which is lower than it is today.It’s a clever pitch, because it lets him pose as a middle-class tax cutter while disguising that | Read More »
How to Fix the Financial Companies’ Fiasco Without a Bailout
The government should loan the money to the financially troubled companies as preferred debt rather than buying any assets from them. (Preferred debt means that the principal and interest takes priority over all the company’s other debt and equity obligations.)The interest on the preferred debt should equal the T-bill rate plus 5% (adjusted daily). All of the borrowers’ net profits (after any taxes are paid) | Read More »
View From The North – The Debate
No McCain knock out probably means Obama looked like the winner. Independents need to be afraid or seriously concerned about Obama’s ability to be the CINC of the armed serivces. The problem with the Independents is that they will see Obama as acceptable and they don’t look deep enough into the issues to see how Obama has “changed” his positions and how on some occassions | Read More »

Is it ghoulish and inappropriate for the GOP to hold its convention during Hurricane Gustav?
Is it inappropriate for the GOP to hold its convention during Hurricane Gustav? Dems & 527s are already planning their ads to pounce on the Republicans for cheering and partying, while millions of non-evacuees in Louisiana and Texas suffer.
