Government: what’s it for?

OTher than police, what should governemnt do for people?

Yesterday, House Minority Leader (and ex-Speaker) Nancy Pelosi, D-San Francisco, cried poverty on the national budget to a CNN anchor. What she said sounds absurd. But not in the context of what Kirsten Powers of The Daily Beast called “a fundamental disagreement” about what government is for.

Holiday religious freedom protest

A Christmas Nativity scene - not a bland, nondescript holiday display

As the coming holiday season approaches, I have decided not to do the usual decorative display. This year I will be decorating with a purpose. Yes, there will be traditional holiday white and red lights, but there will be an addition to my display – a rather large nativity scene.

Liberal or lied to liberally?

TEA Party to GOP establishment: enough already.

Several weeks ago I was at a non-political function and had, over a period of two hours, formed a fairly comfortable relationship with a gentleman I had met for the fist time earlier that day.  We had discussed various issues, sports, family, cars and even to some extent, the economy.  All was well in the land of OZ.

Trouble with Liberals

Ronald Reagan knew the trouble with liberals

After recently having a very strange discussion with a liberal, I came to a very simple conclusion. The trouble with liberals is that when you’re trying to tell them the house is on fire, they run to find marshmallows instead of a hose. As much as we use logic and reason, they use emotion and “feel good” ideologies to try to label you as some kind of heartless human being because you don’t care about the poor or the uninsured. While I may appreciate their compassion, their ability to reason seems non-existent. If it seems like you are having an argument with someone who speaks a different language, you may be more on target than you realized. You may argue with them about what you think, and they will always argue back about what they feel.

Digging up bones

TEA Party to GOP establishment: enough already.

Politicians  have long been endowed with ample portions of treachery, narcissistic debauchery and unabashed deceitfulness.  With such charming attributes its not difficult to understand why political leaders are so often culled from the slimiest, darkest inhabitants of society.  It is a dirty game with every participant having buried their own particular bag of bones.  Individual success depends on how deep one’s bones are buried and how efficient he is at digging up those of others.

No good guys

Azaz, Syria, after rebels took it over after a bloody fight. Is Obama still messing in the Syria war?

As we awoke early this Friday morning and the premature chill of autumn air settled in, it carried with it a new, yet so very old foreboding. Once again the American people sit in the fictitious safety of our quiet, tiny part of the world, the fresh brewed coffee warming our hands, but doing little to soothe our anxiety.

What will be your fate America?

A horrific history will soon repeat itself in America if justice is not wrought through We the People

Terrorism properly defined

Are these the only faces of terrorism? Or does that face belong to the group that assembled these faces?

This week we are hearing much about Al Qaeda’s increased activity, as well as the Ft. Hood trial. Although most would never say that terrorism is dead (except for Mr. Obama), many misidentify the full breadth of terrorist organizations working against the American way of life.

Will you live for your country?

We celebrate those who die for their country. But: will you live for your country?

My only regret in dying is that I have but one poor life to lose for my country. – Capt. Nathan Hale’s last words before his execution in September 1776 after being captured by the British

GOP: Trojan elephant?

TEA Party to GOP establishment: enough already.

Sarah Palin, probably out of respect for McCain, has been long silent on the marching orders she was given by the GOP during their 2008 campaign. She recently spoke out about the long list of areas she was not to discuss. Any one of which could very well have derailed the Obama Express. And now, Romney has just informed his supporters and contributors what little interest he had in becoming President. He would have quit his campaign if that great American conservative, Jeb Bush had decided to run. Now that’s commitment. Yes? Uh, no!
