Michael Moore’s New Film

    I put together some thoughts on Michael Moore’s new film. Believe me, I’m not recommending it, lol. In Slacker Uprising Michael Moore sings a song to himself and the tune is both false and aggrandizing, but you won’t find any real slackers rising here. This film is all about Michael Moore and his narcissism which he exhales with every gargantuan shuffle. This is a rich | Read More »

    White Republicans

    As financial crisis looms for the American Economy and we wait for a solution to be passed by Congress there is still business to do. Now we have to keep pressure on the media and Democrats and even Conservatives to keep a “Bail Out” as conservative as possible. We also have to not lose focus on getting the truth out about who was at fault | Read More »

    I’m Voting For John McCain

    I don’t usually follow a presidential election as close as I’m following this one and I’ve surprised myself with my observations. I’ve heard about personality transformations but this is the first time I’ve actually observed one. I’m talking about Barack Obama and his transforming from a man of the people to a man for himself. When he first announced his candidacy for the nomination of | Read More »

    Dishonest Obamanomics

    A fascinating fact about economics is that there are two sides to every action. This holds true whether an individual believes the Government should take care of the populace or if a person thinks the Government should stay out of individual lives. Barrack Obama must understand that no matter what policy he pursues, negative effects abound. The fact that Obama does not share these obvious | Read More »

    The Two Obamas

          Equality as a basis for society doesn’t work. History provides vivid accounts of the failure of societies whose goal was total equality. Two of the more notable examples are the French Revolution, and former Soviet Union. It is ironic that the more ardent the perpetrators of equality-i.e. French revolutionaries and Russian Marxists- the more violent they become. It is an exercise in futility and | Read More »

    You Can Markup the Bills on the Mortgage Industry Bail Out

    (Crossposted from the Sunlight Foundation) Congress is moving rapidly to enact a gigantic taxpayer bailout of the financial sector, with a potential cost of $700 billion or more than $2,000 per American citizen. We believe, as Justice Brandeis said, that “Sunlight is the best of disinfectants,” and that all legislation ought to be open to public comment and consideration in real-time, not just after the | Read More »

    The Halo Is Tarnished

    Abraham Lincoln once said, “You may fool all the peoplesome of the time, you can even fool some of the people all of the time, but youcannot fool all of the people all the time.” Until a couple of weeks ago, itappeared as if Barack Obama had proved Lincoln wrong. No one can forget the”messiah-like” speeches that Obama gave to swooning crowds justmonths ago. Now | Read More »

    None of the Above

    If your boss told you that your evaluation score shows you have an 18% approval rating on the job performance, do you really think you would be up for a raise? Let alone keep your job. It’ time for those in Congress to look for other jobs, because they obviously can’t do the job they were elected to do. **I as an Independent and faithful | Read More »

    Obama Tried To Stall Troop Withdrawal From Iraq

    The New York Post published an opinion piece by Amir Taheri where he reveals that fact that while in Iraq, Obama tried to pursuade the Iraqi Officials to delay an agreement on a withdrawal of the US military. Iraqi Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari said that Obama made his demand for delay during his discussions with Iraqi leaders in Baghdad in July. “He asked why we | Read More »

    J.R. on Vacation: Flight Attendants Thank The Soldiers

    Hey Folks, J.R. here reporting from Wrightsville Beach in North Carolina where Mrs. J.R. and I are vacationing. I have been trying to sneak peeks at the Republican Convention and following a lot of it on You Tube. Weather is great here. Anyway, the reason why I am posting a blog today is because of a very heartening experience we had on our flight here | Read More »

    Half Time Break

    Forgive me for not blogging. The NFL season started and I have been occupied rooting for my teams and against our opponents. Not unlike politics, but absent the high stakes and ramifications if the game doesn’t turn out as one would like. Perhaps the most difficult thing this year is that I am not excited about either Presidential candidate. My preferred candidates erupted in the | Read More »

    Whose minding the children?

    *How many children does Obama have? How many children does Biden have? *How many children does McCain have? How many children does Palin have? There is one thing all of these candidates have in common, well make that two. McCain, Palin, Obama and Biden have children and all of them are involved in politics. Yet only one of the above has been questioned on the | Read More »

    Bob Beckel: Changing Demographics Will Overwhelm Republicans on Election Day

    Bob Beckel argues that demographics favor Obama. He reels off statistics about how many more blacks, young people 18-34, and hispanics there are in key swing states, compared to the Bush margin of victory in 2004. Then he (like Matt Damon) recalls actuarial tables to show that older white Republicans are dying off. His argument is that enough of these groups will vote (and all | Read More »
