It’s 3 am, and I’m Surfin’, Dude
The Fall election will not hinge on taxes, social security (what a laugh), medical care (have you noticed, MediCare and MedicAid are already bankrupt?), young v. old or black v. white, or even a better economy than most of the past fifty years (com’on folks, my Carter/Reagan mortgage was at 13%, and I was happy to get it). When it comes down to it, it | Read More »
Global Poverty Act – have they all gone crazY?
Obama is trying to pass the Global Poverty Act thru Congress with little discussion. I believe we need to discuss this passionately.

I realize when we have a better economy we | Read More »

“CHANGE! NOW! PLEASE?!?!?!?”
Sound familiar? Before you jump to conclusion about the quotation … this is what a gnat might say, finding itself nearing windshield impact.

Barack Obama accuses John McCain of playing the race card. Most voters seem to think it is Obama who is playing the race card, but he is actually doing something rather different.
