GOP on war footing, with itself

President Obama killed (in a good way) the State of the Union address.  Marco Rubio, the GOP’s so-called new golden boy (right) perhaps killed any chance for a nomination in 2016.  Polar opposites. The president rolled and according to ‘polls’, 53% of the nation liked his speech.   Hmmm.  I have no contradicting data, but […]

To cliff or not to cliff? That is the question.

Now that we have survived the Mayan apocalyptic prediction, and Christmas, all attention will be on the so-called fiscal cliff.  But as I’ve been saying for weeks… don’t worry, be happy. Things have been playing out like a simple B movie script.  Some drama here, some there, a little comedy but no real great acting […]

too many guns, or too many bad people?

Another 26 people murdered, 20 of them children under 8 years old.  12 girls, 8 boys, 6 women.  Place?  An elementary school.  Multiple gunshot wounds.  Over 100 shots fired from 3 guns.  Each victim shot more than once.  The murderer?  A 20 years old man who shot himself.  Cold hard statistics. Sandy Hook, the name […]

No cards to play

Its been a little interesting watching the republicans since their election loss. If there seems to be several personalities embodied in the gop currently, its because there are several personalities. One interesting personality is Entitlists, who behave as if they have won the election.   They still cuss Obama, often with racial slurs…. so you […]

Now the fun really starts

Now that the election is over, the reviews are coming in.  We can certainly look at all of them, but if you want comic relief, look at how the republicans are handling defeat… in every wrong way. Sensible people after losing, would look at what they have done wrong and say ‘Back to the drawing […]

Winning at all costs

Voting is supposed to be the cornerstone of democracies, where all peoples who are eligible to vote should be able to exercise their right to choose who leads them and in which direction… vox populi. In democracies, people should be able to vote free and fair and free from fear.  In some so-called ‘democracies’ this […]

Are all self-inflicted wounds bad?

Was thinking of analyzing presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s secretly videoed speech, when the story about his released tax returns came out.  For those not current, Romney made a speech before some donors in which he basically went suicidal… offending almost every group (except the rich) that he wants to get votes from. Then instead of […]

Just when you think people can’t get more dumb…

When I read some dumb comment online, I often pass it off that some jerk just wants to be noticed and isn’t really serious.  When the same comment is in the media, then I think that it is often a ratings push.  That guy really didn’t believe the crap he is saying. Take this thing […]

In bad times, the private sector doesn’t create jobs.

I’m a little tired of the claim that the private sector not the government creates jobs.  That’s not entirely true.  In good times, that is true.  But these are not good times and in these times, the only entity that can stimulate job creation is the government. Think about it logically.  Profit is the motive […]
