Church and State

Full disclosure…….I am a devout Agnostic. I have not been hit over the head, had an epiphany, been saved or witnessed a miracle that could not be explained. I want there to be an afterlife, but blind faith removed from the above experiences just smacks of hedging ones bets. Rather shallow and transparent to a [...]

COIN in America

Sec of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano, says that our southern border is as safe as it’s ever been. (I guess not much.) She also says that we should gauge the success along the border by looking at the “the numbers.” There is less violence on the American side of the border; there are more seizures [...]

Obama and WalMart

So last night I suffered through the President’s latest attempt to turn a crisis into an omnibus bill. He excelled at painting BP as the Sheriff of Nottingham and he as Robin Hood in pinstripe. He deftly called on his fiddlers three (Ray Mabus, Dr. Steven Chu, and Michael Bromwich) to bring him his bowl [...]

The Nation is no more; Long live the State

At some point in the not-too-distant past, our Nation splintered. It occured well before Vietnam, government LSD experiments, and even Evlis Presley. In order to explain, we need to understand the difference between a State and a Nation. A State is simply a group of people who have formed together into a political entity. A [...]

Obama loves to hold a man back

President Obama told Wall Street yesterday that “I do think at a certain point, you’ve made enough money.” Flippin’ WHAT?!? Are you kidding me? And what point is that? During the campaign, $250k was a convenient line of demarcation. But as we’ve all seen from Obamacare, that line of crossed, and numerous, onerous taxes have [...]

How to fix the budget — it’s easy!

The CBO says that in order to balance the budget over the next 25 years, we would have to either decrease spending or increase tax revenue by 5.4% of GDP. That’s $788 billion. Of course, politicians will create another crisis and find more reasons to take our money, but what about the other option: STOP [...]

Obama going for hat trick

Obama is traveling to California again in May to fundraise for SEN Barbara Boxer. I can only imagine that he’ll have the same positive effect on her campaign as he did with John Corzine (NJ) and Creigh Deeds (VA). Woohoo.

Truths, like our Constitution, are flexible and situationally dependent

We’ve seen the graphs before. You know, the ones showing Obama’s prediction that the U.S. will experience as much as 8.7% unemployment if we don’t enact the Stimulus Bill, then the little line on that graph which shows us at nearly 10% unemployment WITH the Stimulus Bill. Yeah, things never work out like a politician [...]

Lindsey Graham as Anakin Skywalker

Alright, I’m no Star Wars geek, but the analogy fit. Senator Lindsey Graham, the reserve Army Colonel, has partnered with Harry Reid, John Kerry, and the Joe Lieberman – a man for all seasons…as long as the season fits his mood. What hath this partnership wrought? Climate Change legislation, that’s what. Despite the nation’s outcries [...]
