Obama: Republicans Are Partisan

July 23, 2009

Watching the Press Conference last night, I heard a comment that frustrated me greatly. Here’s the question and the full answer (I bolded and italicized the parts I wanted to bring attention to so you don’t have to read all of it, but you might want to anyway): Q:  Back to the politics of it. You […]

Politics as Usual

July 20, 2009

The Obama administration has moved back the deadline for the task force assigned to advise on policy decisions dealing with terrorist detention, interrogation, and transferal to report. The detention report will be delayed six months and the policy report two months, Foxnews and MSNBCreported. This pushes back new anti-terrorism policies six months at least. The articles […]

The Slow Spread of Socialism

June 21, 2009

Charges of socialism, fascism, racism, and communism are flying around, and have been flying around, for quite some time. Many who use those attacks hardly know their meaning and are just hoping for some response. But not all of these charges are unfounded. Some people are using these terms correctly. That’s why so many people […]

North Korea: Not the Nicest Nation Around

June 6, 2009

While many people seem to write North Korea and some of the other nations labeled as the “Axis of Evil” off as Nazi Germany wannabes, North Korea has achieved what Hitler had dreamed of. They have nuclear weapons, and worse, they have nuclear weapons that can hit us. Hawaii and most of Alaska are within […]

What Actually Is Torture

June 1, 2009

Since late in President Bush’s second term, the argument has raged over what actually constitutes torture. Now as President Obama and Congress move to close Guantanamo Bay, arguments have become even more energetic. While I did, and still do, hold the position that waterboarding and sleep deprivation are not torture, I didn’t have any facts, […]

I’ll Send a Stern Fax

April 13, 2009

North Korea’s recent test of their long range missile launching capabilities (yes, that is what it was) demonstrate once again why we can’t expect the international community to fight our battles, even if they are necessary. But our brave President has done something revolutionary, something that will stop our enemies in their tracks. He gave […]

Happy Holidays!!!

February 14, 2009

I’m trying to make my blog more inclusive. So I will avoid saying the name of that holiday that everyone celebrates because if you exclude the majority, you are apparently very inclusive. Besides, not everyone believes in love.

Mailing on Washington

February 2, 2009

 As Rod Blagojevich shows, corruption and crime run rampant in our government, but rarely is it so openly flaunted as in the cases of Timothy Geithner and Tom Daschle. Both failed to pay taxes, and both claim it was a mistake. We should all know better, especially when one of those men is a high ranking […]

Obama: Not JFK But Jackson

January 20, 2009

As I watched  Obama’s Inauguration Parade, I was caught by how this resembled Andrew Jackson’s Inauguration. Andrew Jackson was the “people candidate”. He was historical as the first president to not belong with the Virginia, gentleman, plantation owner, group. Some of you may remember my previous post last year about how the “Media for Obama” […]

A True Hero: Mosab Hassan Yousef

January 4, 2009

Yousef was born the son of a very influential Hamas leader. He lived out his childhood as a devout, faithful Muslim working for Hamas as anyone would expect. His family was educated to an extent that few people in the Middle East ever receive an opportunity for. But while held in an Israeli prison that Hamas had infiltrated, […]
