by Skip June 4, 2014

(H/T: CNSNews) Oh, and those “harmless” Talibani just released into the security of Qatari officials to be highly monitored for a year?  Prison time?  Er, no so much: A senior Gulf official speaking to Reuters has said the five Guantánamo detainees traded for Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl are being kept in an “accommodation facility” and will […]

RULE 5: “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.” Didn’t Obama used to teach this stuff?

by Skip June 3, 2014

Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals.  Obama is notoriously thin skinned – I wonder if ANY one in his staff would DARE show this to him?  I also wonder if Mad Magazine has already lawyered and accountant’d up – will the IRS send in their SWAT team for dissing the LightBringer?  Seriously, did the Brainiacs in […]

by Skip June 1, 2014

10 Million-Men-In-Prime-Working-Years-Are-Simply-Not-Working This is like the inflation rate – it seems stable but since the Federal government removed gas prices and food prices, it presents a picture to ordinary Americans that things are better than what they really are.

‘Harder to end wars than it is to begin them’

by Skip May 27, 2014

“…end wars…”. Gee, and I thought the whole idea was to WIN wars.  Anything else is just “first loser” and in a two-way battle, just loser.  Americans were known for WINing wars, not just giving up which is exactly what Obama is doing.  We beat both Japan and Germany militarily – and then stayed for decades […]

Looking for an Answer from Obama on the VA?  He did hold a press conference yesterday.  President Obama says he is mad, though it is more likely because this VA thing has made him look bad, and doesn’t he have someone who has someone who tells someone else to take care of this kind og […]

Medicaid – Obama’s promise of Hope has turned out to be quite hollow

by Skip May 17, 2014

What good is having Medicaid if doctors won’t take a Medicaid patient? As a proud new beneficiary of the Affordable Health Care Act, I’d like to report that I am doctorless. Ninety-six. Ninety-six is the number of soul crushing rejections that greeted me as I attempted to find one. It’s the number of physicians whose […]

Voter ID is popular with everyone except the left-wing fringe. But the hard left took over the Democrat party and now runs things.  One of the things they run is a narrative machine which insists that expecting people to show ID to vote (that photo-thingy they demand you use to access everything in life including […]

Hope (and change) were the promise of the Obama Presidency.  We’ll change things until you have no hope.  That’s what happened.  And that is the plan going ‘Forward.’ Democrats all across the nation are embracing 1.9% total growth in 2013 and 0.1% in the first quarter of 2014.  And they should.  This is what they […]

Benghazi was a cluster and Obama should have paid a political price for it, but the media never pressed it and he never had to suffer.  But four people died, and the entire affair is a poster child for this administration; rule one–how do we spin this so we don’t look bad? As to the […]

The concerted effort by the White House to lie about the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi is a full-blown cover-up.  Obama, Plouffe, Carney, Pfeiffer, Jarrett, Hillary Clinton, and a cadre of others, worked very hard to craft a message to hide the truth about their incompetence, just weeks before an election. Had they expanded […]

This adds onto my post here on Capitalism in talking about Entrepreneurship: The ultimate source of our prosperity is a set of institutions and cultural attitudes (along with what Deirdre McCloskey calls “habits of the lip” that give dignity to the bourgeoisie) that encourage innovative commercial and industrial activities.
