Instant Need?

September 12, 2009

Looking back to the election, I was struck by how instantly this Healthcare debate came. Two months ago, we were arguing over how to fix the economy, now we are convinced that unless we pass a bill to solve our problems in the next month, our Health Insurance system will collapse. Where did this sentiment […]

Thanks, Mr. President

August 10, 2009

It feels like election season again as the debate over Health Care reform seems to be even more polarising than the campaigns were. Attempting to rally support for the Health Care Bill, leading Democrats began a series of town hall meetings. To their surprise, speakers were booed and argued with by those attending. The White […]

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 […]

That Poor Thing

June 18, 2009

PETA ( People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) has recquested that President Obama treat flies more humanely the next time he encounters one. The Presidents barbaric streak became evident during an interview when he swatted a fly that had been annoying him. To help Obama handle the next situation more humanely, PETA has sent him […]

Obama: The European President

April 23, 2009

Europe: The land where even passive Christianity is dying out quickly, but where the Jedi Religion has finally found a home. Girls join Boy Scouts, and people pay in cash for the extra carbon dioxide that they breathe out. Pacifism is the rule of day, being politically correct is law. Europe is the true land […]

Another One Bites the Dust?

March 2, 2009

Another one of Obama’s campaign promises are on the verge of biting the dust today with the safe prediction that President Obama will sign a spending bill overflowing with earmarks. The $410 Billion spending bill has between $3.8 billion dollars and $7.7 billion worth of 8,600 earmarks. That is a lot of money. We could […]

Spending Our Lack of Money

February 26, 2009

Barack Obama’s massive $3.55 Trillion budget is just one of the examples of the government spending much more than it can. In fact, the government debt will increase 63% by 2010 if Obama’s plan goes through. What does this mean for the U.S? If the money the government spends is never demanded back, it could […]

Divided We Fail, United isn’t Much Better

December 29, 2008

During this election, we heard a lot about Unity. How we could not succeed as a divided nation. I even saw a couple “Divided we Fail” commercials, saying that only a united nation could solve the problems  face. In many ways, I agree with them. All Americans can say that this bickering between political parties […]
