Nancy and Johnny Were Sweethearts

February 12, 2014

The image that you just saw, had such a visceral impact on me that I had to spontaneously react to it.  First of all, this really should come as no surprise to anyone among us that have been awake during this whole nightmare.  I’ve written over and over, how the alleged ‘two party system’ at […]

The Real Targets of Class Warfare

January 31, 2014

3

There has been, as you’ve no doubt noticed, a persistent theme surging back and forth between the polar spectrums of political thought, regarding the question of ‘Class Warfare’.  It especially animates many media personalities on the Right, who decry any criticism of the unprecedented rise of the accumulation of wealth within a small statistical segment […]

Obamacare – Corporate Wealth Transfer or the ‘New Capitalism’?

January 17, 2014

9

For some time now I’ve been attempting to convey the reality that Corporate America, or otherwise casually referred to as ‘Big Business’, broadly speaking – is not practicing what many of us who consider ourselves conservatives would classify as legitimate capitalism.  Corporatism, Corporatocracy, Corruption, Rent Seeking?, yes.  Classic capitalism? – no.  The obstacle in exposing […]

You Deserve A Break Today

December 13, 2013

Hello Dear Readers.  I’ve been sidelined for awhile by my own inexplicable sense of invincibility.  It’s beyond comprehension or explanation because my ‘bulletproof’ teen years are long behind me.  So it’s lingering immaturity, but in spite of myself and prior warnings, I set up a work ladder underneath the rain gutter on my home to […]

Shall I SuperSize Your NDAA Combo Meal?

November 19, 2013

1

2014’s iteration of the National Defense Authorization Act is approaching a vote in the Senate.  Typical of the process of crafting a bill that involves such an enormous segment of the nation’s budget, is the perennial attempt by interest groups to insert amendments that often have zero to do with the target of the appropriations […]

Hillary’s Obamacare Problems – among other things…

November 16, 2013

When I have an informal discussion with folks about what the future looks like, particularly with respect to 2016, inevitably the topic of Hillary Clinton comes up.  What my friends are especially wondering and concerned about is “do you think Hillary Clinton will win the White House?”  It is a daunting proposition.  Even my 90 […]

Losing Private Ryan

August 2, 2013

This is not exclusively on Congressman and erstwhile Vice Presidential candidate Paul Ryan, but Ryan – along with Senator Marco Rubio, are the most notable examples of how elastic any politician with higher ambitions can be when they succumb to the wiles of the lobbying machinery in Washington D.C. I realize that sounds like they […]

No Good Deed Goes Unpunished in D.C.

May 31, 2013

This story would be disconcerting, nonsensical and puzzling if it took place in any but a handful of cities in this country, but when you hear that it unfolded in Washington D.C., you just think to yourself – “yeah, I get it”. Picture this in your mind.  You hear a child crying out in horror […]

The Internet Sales Tax – More is Never Enough

May 22, 2013

1

The Internet Sales Tax.   Nothing illustrates the ravenous nature of BigGov and its insatiable desire to destroy even the smallest extant vestiges of Free Enterprise in America than the effort underway to pull millions of small businesses into their net of taxation.  While the support this legislation is getting on Capitol Hill from Democrats […]

I’ll Have An Ounce of Prevention, Please

May 7, 2013

Woven into the fabric of our unique American culture is the timeless wisdom of founding father, Benjamin Franklin.  Franklin, the author of the phrase, “An Ounce of Prevention is worth a Pound of Cure”, would be appalled at much that is going on in American politics, but probably not shocked. Ambassador and Postmaster Franklin counted […]
