Still Out Of Touch

Posted: January 16, 2011 at 12:54 am   /   General

One hundred seventy two thousand and two hundred dollars per year.  In the arabic numerals, that looks like $172,200/yearly.  That’s the salary of Mr. Robert Gibbs, who is set to resign as the White House press secretary in early February.  And how is this salary described by the current chief executive?  Modest.  Don’t get me […]

Immigration Run Amok

Posted: July 5, 2010 at 8:43 pm   /   General

With all the commotion currently surrounding the topic ‘immigration’ recently, and the stated intent of the current president of the United States to focus on what he is terming ‘comprehensive immigration reform’, it’s worth while examining what the federal government is currently doing with the existing laws and what types of reforms are really needed. […]

So, the ‘progressives’ have completed one of their main goals– foisting a government run health care program upon the American people.  Why do I use the word ‘foist’?  Because a majority of Americans didn’t ask for or want this monstrosity and actively campaigned against it (54% against, 41% for, 4% unsure).  Now, even more want it repealed (55%).  This […]

Our Congress. Our President. Ethics? Transparency? Decisiveness? Competence? Leadership?

Posted: November 13, 2009 at 10:04 pm   /   General

There have been a few showdowns in the United States lately.  First, it was Transparency vis-à-vis the United States Congress (both the House of Representatives and the Senate, not to mention the Administration found in the White House).  What happened on that face off? Transparency

$1,000,000,000,000, and Three Generations Later

Posted: June 13, 2009 at 9:28 pm   /   General

After candidate Barack Obama became President-elect Obama back in November, I had written an article for November, but did not actually publish it. It’s topic was actually rather generous– I had written how that this is American politics, and sometimes, your candidate doesn’t win. I confessed that I would not be a political hack, and […]

Suffrage Turkey – Stuffing on the Left

Posted: October 28, 2008 at 5:48 am   /   General

Web polls… Can you trust them? Well, shoot, everyone knows they’re not scientific, so of course not! It’s a popularity contest, that’s all, and only by the demographics that actually visit the website. Why even bother asking the question! Well, to be honest, I get irritated when my point of view isn’t winning. But hey, […]

Barack Obama And The Neo-Politics Of Personal Destruction

Posted: October 18, 2008 at 4:25 pm   /   General

I’m sure everyone by now has heard about “Joe The Plumber” from Holland, Ohio. And sadly to say, the discussion hasn’t been focused on the point that Joe was trying to make– that the tax policies proposed by presidential hopeful Senator Barack Obama will punish those who work long and hard hours for the purpose […]

Golly Batman! We’ve been hacked!

Below is a conversation that was overheard sometime before we were forced to revamp the site (as small as ‘we’ are– ‘we’ is actually a one person show being Editor, Contributor, Essayist, Support Technician– we are just one voice in the multitude making known our political opinion).
