The Real Targets of Class Warfare

January 31, 2014


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 […]

Obama’s Syrian IPO – Is It A Good Investment?

September 4, 2013


There is an expression in the financial world, in the form of a required disclaimer in advertisements for securities, such as in Mutual fund prospectus. “Past results are no indicator of future performance”.  There is a fair degree of common sense in that, when applied to the science or discipline of economics as it relates […]

As Heads Is Tails Just Call Me Unconvinced

June 25, 2013


“Just as every cop is a criminal And all the sinners saints As heads is tails just call me Lucifer (cause) I’m in need of some restraint” I’ve always found ‘Sympathy For the Devil’, by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, to be one of the most profound social statements of the classic rock music era.  […]

Me and My Old ‘Gray Lady’

May 3, 2013


I seldom give myself an ‘attaboy’ when an argument that I’ve made here is vindicated by another notable media source.  But when the media source is one that historically has carried water for Democrat office holders, it seems like a special occasion.   Special occasion it may be, but it is no cause for celebration in […]

Best Government Money Can Buy

February 10, 2013


One of my readers, whose curiosity was sparked by my recent post ‘Please Don’t Feed the Beast’, asked me if I knew where most of the business and organizational campaign money was coming from.  I did see some lists, but as it turns out, relatively speaking, many of the notable players in the 2012 cycle […]

The ‘Chicken’ Game

December 3, 2012


The ‘Fiscal Cliff’.  Of all the shameful travesties that have come forth from a federal government that neither the founding fathers, nor any other American leader of substance would recognize, the ‘Fiscal Cliff’ ranks near the top in terms of cowardice, foolishness and gross negligence. On the odd chance that the Fiscal Cliff hasn’t come […]

California Hard Reset – Elizabeth Emken

October 18, 2012


Anyone who has been around the block with cell phones, laptop computers or really any device with a central processing chip and a operating system, knows that eventually the device will cease to properly function.  The screen will freeze and the device is useless. The less ‘tech challenged’ among us, know how to restore normal […]

The Romney Speech – Pluses, Minuses and Question Marks

August 30, 2012


Reflections on Mitt Romney’s acceptance speech; I watched Romney’s entire speech and while listening, took some mental notations.  To just set the tone for my personal perspective, let me preface my thoughts with the following. First, I think the GOP nomination process served up to us a very weak and poorly qualified cast of participants.  […]

Veterans in the crosshairs

August 24, 2012


After submitting to you the report on Sergeant Brandon Raub’s unlawful detention by the FBI and Secret Service and being held captive at a VA Hospital Psychiatric ward, I thought it might be eye-opening and informative to let you see just exactly what it was that Sgt. Raub said that raised the dander of federal […]

President Obama – you DID build this

July 25, 2012


President Obama, you DID build this…but you didn’t do it all by yourself. Obama’s comments on the campaign trail, telling the audience that he’s of the belief that the business owner wasn’t the prime mover behind the creation of his or her enterprise, has had incredible traction, both in terms of shelf life and potential […]
