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 […]

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 […]

The teaparty is in lala-land.  […]

Keep an eye on the ref

If I had the investment funds I would be moving mucho dinero into anti-depressant and anti-anxiety medication stocks.  Too many people are on edge with this drama about the debt ceiling.  The fear is palpable. Relax.  Don’t rush the pharmacist just yet.   America’s credit line will be raised. Armageddon will be postponed.  First thing to […]

Inna deep hole? Stop digging!

Let’s get one this straight in this ‘debt ceiling crisis thingy’.  There is no crisis.  Both houses will vote to raise the debt ceiling.  The worse that can happen is that the president has the power to do so and will.  There is far too much at stake. What is interesting is how Obama got […]

I’m back.

I’m back.  I guess I could hype and say “I’mmmm baaaaack!”.  But no, I left quietly and without fanfare and will return the same way.  So why did I stop blogging in the first place? After a while, it seemed so useless… rant after rant without anything changing.  Not that I expected to change the […]
