Thank you, America

No matter what you might think about the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, there has been one good thing to come from them that I hope no one will disagree with. There is a renewed respect and admiration for members of our armed forces that has been absent for far too long.

Those of us who served during the Viet Nam era recall all too well the reception we received when we came back home. Personally, I consider that to have been a disgrace and a stain upon this country.   Read more

Why Don't We Learn?

Are Americans getting less intelligent by the day? They complain about “Big Government” but elect officials who will do absolutely nothing to change policy. Many don’t realize there are times “Big Government” is required to repair damage done to our economy by run away banks and corporations.   Read more

Heading Back Into the Ditch

In September of 2008, when John McCain suspended his presidential campaign and went to Washington to debate the TARP bill, I told a friend, this was the beginning of the fractionalization of the Republican Party. Since the debate over TARP, grassroots Tea Parties sprung up around the country. In the interim the Tea Party has been hijacked by career politicians, turning their anger and energy into votes, replacing many incumbents on both sides of the aisle.   Read more

Middle Class Hosing

On a daily basis, the American people are being lied to by our politicians, corporations and certain media. We’ve all heard comments from our political representatives about how corporations need tax breaks to create jobs, and they pay 35% in taxes. The reality of the situation is, we the people are providing our tax dollars to many of these corporations in subsidies. Tax subsidies are paid to the health insurance companies, banks and big oil. In 2009 Exxon Mobil, General Electric, Bank of America, Citi Fed and others, paid zero tax dollars.   Read more

New boss same as the old boss?

I firmly believe if you don’t learn history or ignore it, you are doomed to repeating the same mistakes.   Read more

The Terrorists are Succeeding

The radical extremists belonging to Al Qaeda and the Talliban are winning the war. Not in Iraq or Afghanistan, but here in the United States. We as a nation have allowed them to enter our psyche which divided us and caused a monstrous rift. We’ve become xenophobic and Islamaphobic. Fear mongering by certain radio and television personalities disallows the ability to openly communicate.   Read more

Outside infuences on elections can be reduced

There has been quite a bit of talk about our political races being influenced by outsiders this cycle, and according to a recent story by the Center for Responsive Politics there is good reason to be concerned. Using data released by the Federal Election Commission on September 13, CRP reports that out-of-state contributions account for 76.9% of Harry Reid's war chest and 74.2% of Sharron Angle's.   Read more

What is an elitist?

What exactly is an elitist? Are you an elitist if you can reason, or be logical and rational? Are you an elitist if you are capable of doing research and not take some talking head seriously? Why do people call you an elitist if you don’t think like them? Are you an elitist if you happen to be a well educated conservative Republican? It seems the term elitist specifies an educated moderate to the left type persona. Is the right intimidated by those different than themselves?   Read more

Foreign Political Money

On January 27th, 2010 in his State of the Union address President Obama said, “"Last week, the Supreme Court reversed a century of law that I believe will open the floodgates for special interests, including foreign corporations, to spend without limit in our elections." Justice Alito, who was sitting in the chamber, visibly shook his head in disagreement. One must think, who is smarter, Justice Alito or President Obama?   Read more

"Burn a Quran Day" Is NOT Free Speech

I find the proposed "Burn a Quran Day" to be morally repugnant even though I am not religious. That said, I have to ask if it is an exercise of free speech or is it in fact something that infringes on society's (and hence my) right to a peaceful existence?

The act of publicly burning the Quran is, in my opinion, an open invitation for violent retaliation by some groups.   Read more
