When Private Industry or Persons Sponsor the Police
http://www.nbcbayarea.com/news/national-international/Chicago-Proposal-Would-Allow-Private-Sponsorship-of-Police-201418771.html This sounds like the wild, wild west. Having the police ‘sponsored’ by business or individuals sounds like “Guns for Hire”. Who will the “police” serve? The People? The Town/County/State? OR, their benefactors? Let’s just take a ‘for instance’. If a drug lord were to “sponsor” a police department with a LARGE sum of money, will that department necessarily ‘ignore’ the large shipments of Heroine | Read More »
Women On The Battle Lines
Panetta opens combat roles to women http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2013/01/23/panetta-opens-combat-roles-to-women/ In my opinion this is the most backward action to take. All activity on the front lines can lead to death or disfigurement. A civil society cannot exist if we are willing to sacrifice our women to the battle field where capture, torture, and death is likely. From my point of view, when a man dies, a man | Read More »
OK, We’ve Been Boned Once More
Once again, Mr. Boehner, Mr. McConnell and the Obama Republicans in the House and Senate, have driven us over another hurdle to Total Systemic Failure. Well, we lost that battle, and we must once again draw a line in the sand. I propose that we start pushing our congress’People’ to start reforming the voting process. Voter ID Now (VIN). We have admission by the courts | Read More »
FEMA And The Lineman
I live on Long Island, N.Y. Yesterday we were hit with a nor’easter which brought wind, rain, snow and cold. As I was returning to my home, I saw and thanked profusely a lineman repairing the power lines to my block. He was from a middle western state. He was up in the bucket, in the wind, rain/snow, and cold, repairing the power lines so | Read More »
America is Absolutely Schizophrenic
How is it possible that on the exact same day we can see these headlines on The Druge Report? U.S. Move to Give Egypt $450 Million in Aid Meets Resistance http://www.nytimes.com/2012/09/29/world/middleeast/white-house-move-to-give-egypt-450-million-in-aid-meets-resistance.html US Embassy issues terror warning for Americans in Egypt http://www.timesofisrael.com/us-embassy-issue-terror-warning-for-americans-living-in-egypt Have our leaders absolutely lost their minds? I mean, this is like being robbed by your neighbor, knowing that he did it, and then | Read More »
Why is Romney Trying to Lose the Election
in the last couple of days, Mr. Romney has made as much effort as possible to tell the Citizens NOT to vote for him. Conservatives are not going to be able to save this poor soul from himself, and the country from Obama, if he keeps telling us that an “top down” Marxist regime, tyrannical, Government sponsored Health Care system is part of his plan. | Read More »
Enough With Medicare!
M. Romney and his side kick, P. Ryan have to stop with the medicare campaigning. The people who use medicare are NOT economy drivers. WE ARE IN A DISPARATE ECONOMIC SITUATION and our “Conservative” candidates are talking about Health Care! What about Jobs, Oppressive Government Regulation, the Value of the Dollar, our Military and Borders, people taking their money and denouncing their citizenship from the | Read More »
Guarnateed Retirement Account: Take Two
Time Bomb? Banks Pressured to Buy Government Debt (http://www.cnbc.com/id/47633576) The impetus behind the government’s proposal to create a ‘Guaranteed Retirement Account’ for all Americans is the need/desire to get their greedy little hands on the $18 Trillion That Americans have in Stocks, IRA’s, 401K’s, Pensions, and savings. That money, The Government believes, is really theirs. They just don’t know how to get at it. Well, | Read More »
ObamaCare WILL Pass at least 5:4 in the Supreme Court
This is a simple, and most obvious conclusion. The questioning yesterday was not defining that a mandate for healthcare would be unconstitutional. NOPE, The questioning was to identify that a mandate on other issues, Cars, Cell Phones, Food IS unconstitutional. Add this to the expected outcome of today’s presentations of Severability, which most likely will stand as All or Nothing, and you will find the | Read More »
Valerie J. Knows Nothing About Economy
In a recent oration, V. Jarrett proposed that “People Who Receive that Unemployment Check Go Out and Spend It and Help Stimulate the Economy” http://www.weeklystandard.com/blogs/valerie-jarrett-people-who-receive-unemployment-check-go-out-and-spend-it-and-help-stimulate-economy_631716.html This is a totally absurd thought. Take this to a logical example. If a 3rd party, say a government, extorts a dollar from me, since I am a worker who own my own business. Let’s say I make pizza, and | Read More »
Can We Change the Speaker of the House
From CNS News: “Boehner Won’t Rule Out ‘Balanced Budget Amendment’ That Permits Unlimited Federal Spending” Is there any way, other than elections, to remove the “Speaker of the House”. Not necessarily from office. Just that position. Mr. Boehner is showing the country that he is not conservative and has no real desire to fix any problems. He is demonstrating that he is a ‘Good old | Read More »
Florida Announces January Primary – HUH!?
So Florida has a primary in January. Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada and South Carolina then soon follow. ALL vying for the right to declare that they are THE state that has chosen the next President. I say they are jumping the gun. Buying the first distribution of IPad. We know now that the newer IPads are much better. Faster, cheaper, more capable. The difference here | Read More »
Our President is Not Aware That he is a GUEST in Congress?
Based on the atricle below, Mr. Obama is not aware of the fact that he is NOT allowed to just saunter into the House chambers without an appointment. It is rather uncouth of him to assume that he can just order Congress around as he does below. And that he only has 1/3 of the power. Not a larger 1/3, but exactly 1/3 of the | Read More »
Boehner, It’s Time To Move On
In an interview with CBS News (RE: http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2011/08/01/eveningnews/main20086598.shtml ) The question was put to J. Boehner: “Pelley: You were unable to get your own caucus behind your bill a few days ago. Do you intend to remain Speaker of the House?” His Answer: “Boehner: I do. When you look at this final agreement that we came to with the white House, I got 98 percent of | Read More »
Only In America
No, not the song from West Side Story. Today we wake up to learn that the concrete workers union, which is working on the “Freedom Towers” in New York, are on strike. Apparently they believe that they should get a raise during these wonderfully fruitful fiscal times. Ok, so we have come to expect that. The Unions, all of them, operate on the same rules | Read More »
U.S. Contingency Plan Gives Bondholders Priority
this is rather interesting. When We The People took over a couple of Private auto manufacturers, the bond holders in that deal did not get priority treatment. They were left holding the bag. The President’s friends and funders got priority. I wonder if ‘Bondholder’ is a secret word for ‘friend’ or ‘financier’?
Judges Make Laws?
According to the absolutely ignorant H. Reid, “the Democrats need Goodwin Liu on the federal bench because “the court of appeals is where law is made, and we need the finest minds in the world for that.”” Funny, I thought it was their job to interpret/enforce the law. I guess Congress has given up this Constitutional requirement, and handed it over to the courts. Perhaps | Read More »
What About the Baby Boomers?
Unemployment to 9% Jobs Created (?) 244000 Baby Boomers retiring at the rate of 10000 per day, 300000 per month. Isn’t that just a little bothersome? We are not hiring at a rate to replace boomers entering retirement.
None Too Rich or Too Poor
During his 2008 campaign, B.H. Obama declared that no one should be too rich or too poor. He also pointed out that he believed in transferring the wealth. Spread it around. Paraphrasing, “Take from the rich and give to the poor”. But I find this rhetoric just a little odd when we see his plans in action. As president, Mr. Obama has declared war on | Read More »
President to Speak About Japan Today!
Hooray! We are Saved! Japan is Saved! Can we expect to hear the infamous words: “I will not sleep until this problem <insert problem here> is solved!” OR “I will not rest until this <insert problem here> is put to rest!” I just cannot wait to hear his undying, “LASAR BEAM” fucus is put to Japan’s problem.
Now is NOT the Time For Emergency Oil Reserves
It would be a tragedy to release oil from the American reserves at this time. With many other options available, such as drilling in the Gulf or Alaskan ANWR, it would be an error now to release the emergency oil. This reserve is for real emergencies. The situation America is in now is not a real emergency. It could lead to one, but that is | Read More »
What Good “Jobs Report”?
I guess I must have missed something here. but I am not sure that I can believe that there is anything good in the latest Job numbers coming from the U.S. Government. Whoop-deee-dooo, we see an alleged 192000 jobs created in February. I say, REALLY? http://endoftheamericandream.com/archives/in-2011-the-baby-boomers-start-to-turn-65-16-statistics-about-the-coming-retirement-crisis-that-will-drop-your-jaw “Beginning January 1st, 2011 every single day more than 10,000 Baby Boomers will reach the age of 65.

Venezuela’s end of quote/unquote Democracy
Talk about letting the Genie out of the bottle! From Yahoo: “Chavez seeks power to rule by decree for 1 year Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez on Tuesday asked congress to grant him special powers to enact laws by decree for one year, just before a new legislature takes office with a larger contingent of opposition lawmakers.” OK folks, let me give you a “What If”. | Read More »
Wikileaks Vs. DRM
Simple question. If Assange is able, by the U.S. law, to take digital content which was stolen, and use it for personal use without retribution, does that same law also protect those people who download music (stolen by someone else) the same freedom? Seems like theft of digital data is either against the law or is it not. Perhaps one of our glorious leaders can | Read More »
A Fool and his Internet WILL Soon be Parted
It is amazing that so many, would-be terrorists exist in the world. Not the type that strap on bombs, walk into a cafe and murder innocent people. No, at least those terrorists are man enough to put their life and their face on the crime that is being commited. No, I am referencing those pimply-faced, over-weight, computer-geek terrorists that believe that terrorizing the general public | Read More »
