For Those Undecided Trump Fence-Sitters

By 50 Comments 1,980 views

Someone close to me has recently spent some months confronting the abject incompetence of government bureaucracy.  The lunacy of bureaucratic cover-my-back-side inactions is something most of us have experienced in frustration, regardless what corner of the government we have dealt with.  Each and every time I have found myself confronting the blundering inefficiency of the… Read more »

“Nationalist” – A New Insult Hurled At The Patriotic

By 3 Comments 1,070 views

In the age of Obama we have witnessed attacks from the left which have refashioned conventional words into insults. The terms are twisted into slurs usually intended to demean the target, when no intelligent or rational argument can be constructed to counter a position. One such word, nationalism, has achieved prominence in use as an insult in only eight years.

Obama vs. Apple — The Road to Tyranny

By 40 Comments 1,498 views

The ABC interview with Apple’s CEO, Tim Cook on Feb. 24, 2016, unintentionally revealed a CEO under siege, a CEO behind the eight ball, and a CEO who felt he had been betrayed by Obama. He had been double-crossed by a politician he had helped elect. Cook earnestly and effectively stated Apple’s quandary, nevertheless, he could not help but look like the deer in the head lights. He plaintively stated that he felt he should have received a heads-up from Obama.

Oh, wait….wrong Turkey. Nothing quite like seeing a lame duck president pardoning the national turkey (can you tell which one’s which?). Actually, I think our comedian-in-chief is pretty good in this role. Nor did I mind his jab at GOP presidential candidates (I think some of them are turkeys). It was done in lighthearted jest….

  Right now Obama is Putin’s bitch. Today Vladimir Putin is the strongest leader and the most powerful man in the world. Barack Obama has capitulated to Iran. World wide, he’s done. He’s left the building. He’s running out the clock. And he’s getting his ass kicked everywhere. American adversaries sense Obama’s weakness and are flexing their… Read more »

By 32 Comments 1,838 views

The apple does not fall far from the libertarian tree. The one thing that is the biggest negative in ever considering Rand Paul as PotUS is that he shares the same isolationist/non-interventionist scrawny foreign policy beliefs as his father. Is Rand purposely trying to alienate a segment of the Republican base before primaries by commenting… Read more »

Why is ISIS and anything going on in the Middle East our concern?

By No Comments 1,359 views

Americans are war-weary. The isolationist/non-interventionist wing of the American left and right perceive American interference abroad as part of the problem in exacerbating instability and breeding extremism and anti-American fervor. They argue for more books and less bombs; in “nation-building” here rather than abroad; in spending American tax-payer treasure on education and infrastructure here at… Read more »
