Stop the Party I Want to Get Off

by Tom February 3, 2014

We affiliate with or join political parties to support ideas that we believe in. We say, “I’m a Republican”, “I’m a Democrat”, or, increasingly, “I’m an Independent”, based on our core principles.

Obama Doesn’t Want Dictatorial Power over Sequester Cuts

by Steve MacDonald March 1, 2013

Email and social media have been burning up with cries and moans about the US Senate giving Obama dictatorial power. What they actually tried to do was to give him complete control over the Sequester cuts.  Only the Sequester cuts.  But all 85 Billion.

Blogosphere Line of the Day!

by Skip May 21, 2012

Once again, NJ Governor Chris Christie (R-NJ) has exceeded expections.  Since his campaign (and subsequent elevation to Governor), his YouTubes have become Internet sensations.  Now I’m betting that as a surrogate for Mitt Romney, he will continue to keep Obama “in the dark room”; “This is a guy who literally is walking around in a […]

What’s Good For The Goose..
