If experience is what we need in a presidential candidate, then no one but top military officers would be fit for the job of our top executive, given their experience at decision-making and dealing with complex military matters. The current occupant of the oval office proves the point, that even after being president for nearly 3 years, he still has not gained the experience to do the job (but of course he's a raving liberal radical with an agenda to bring America down to…Continue

If any foreign nation interfered with America's prosperity, wealth, liberties and national defense the way Obama has, we would declare war on them. In March on 2010 I posted an opinion paper with the title "The EPA Declares War On America" which detailed how EPA decisions were hurting America and Americans, but since that time not only has the EPA doubled-down and made things much worse, but the National Labor Relations Board, the Federal Reserve, the Departments of Energy…Continue

It is hard to believe the comments that are coming from the so called Black leaders regarding The Tea Party Movement. We have been bombarded with negative comments about the Tea Party Movement from these ill informed people ever since the Tea Party Movement began. The last to join the frey is actor Morgan Freeman.
My hope is that those that make these comments would wake up and smell the roses, and also educate themselves with facts before speaking up on this subject. The…Continue
According to a recent news release in the Miami Herald, if a white president had the horrible record on joblessness that Barack Obama has, the Congressional Black Caucus "would be marching on the White House" per a quote attributed to Congressman Emanuel Cleaver. But since it's a semi-black man in the White House at present, no such demonstration of frustration with presidential failure is permitted. Is this an admission that the Congressional Black Caucus, and their chairman,…Continue

If we want a less abusive government we must make it smaller, and Social Security is a good place to begin reducing government, and at the same time we can give an honest break to our younger workers.
First and foremost there is no Social Security Trust Fund. When FICA money is sent to Washington an IOU is issued to the Social Security Fund and the money goes directly to the Treasury where it is spent. The reason there is such furor…Continue

Kansas City, Mo. — Anyone visiting the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City cannot miss the nearly 7-story art exhibit across the street.
The letters “IOU” on one side and “USA” on the other give the artist’s commentary about the state of the U.S. economy.…Continue
What would you do if you knew the top Democrat running for president was lying about his past?
That is the question I was faced with in 2008. I had met the young Barack Obama while he was a sophomore at Occidental College, and I knew that his commitment to socialism was deep, genuine and long-standing. See,…Continue

"Idleness, selfishness, fecklessness, envy and irresponsibility are the vices upon which Socialism in any form flourishes and which it in turn encourages. But Socialism's devilishly clever tactic is to play up to all those human failings, while making those who practise them feel good about it." - Margaret Thatcher
You may know that I testified on exchanges to the Senate Exchange Committee in KC recently.
My friend Michael Cannon of Cato testified to the same group in the Jefferson City hearing yesterday. During the hearing the committee was handed a notice that the Dept. of Insurance Board was voting on whether to move ahead with setting up an exchange. The Senators on the committee stopped their hearing. Senators Lembke, Schaaf, and Cunningham went to the Insurance Board…Continue
When it comes to foreign policy, specifically as it relates to the popularly called "War on Terror," liberals and libertarians form a single Greek chorus blaming the United States for the attacks on 9/11. Ron Paul is a master of this spin, as he once again laid blame at the feet of the United States for its problems with the Muslim world (to the loud booing of the audience).
He said: "Osama bin Laden and al-Qaeda have been explicit. . . they have been explicit and they wrote and said…Continue
The US Census Bureau released the Income, Poverty and Health Insurance Coverage in the United States: 2010. These particular statistics have a significant factor in how the election in 2012 is going to be shaped by the candidates who are ultimately nominated to run for the various public offices across this country. Some of them aren’t really being brought to the American people so that they can draw their own conclusions, even though the information is available in…Continue

(I thought this appropriate during the current political debate season.)
Years ago, when there were afternoon movie matinees, only three 'alphabet' networks, and AM radio was king, comic books were tailor made for a kid's imagination - and a parent's disdain.
(An industrious parent's hope was their child's pursuits would lean more towards Beethoven, Carver, Emerson, Einstein, Salk, or von Braun.)
Nowadays, hollyweird mints millionaires out of the…

More slick talk from the President as we call for the same old stuff. After all if a trillion dollars did not work, we should spend another 1/2 trillion - - just to be sure. All we need is a soothing voice to lull us to sleep.
Sent this to all of my congressional representatives - - you might want to let them hear from you as well.
Interesting article regarding the GOP's…Continue

I was getting for work that morning, and I had to go in an hour early. I had the TV on and just sort of passively saw that the WTC had been hit by a plane. I finished getting ready and got into my car and turned it to 98.9 The Rock, the Johnny Dare show. While I was driving to work, the second plane hit and the Johnny Dare show went silent as you heard the sighs on the air from all those in the studio. They saw the second plane hit.
Johnny Dare said, "This isn't an…Continue

It was not hard to predict. Another stimulus package, but the first one didn't work. We all know it, and it seems apparent that even those on the left know the first one didn't work. Is it because the government can't stimulate the economy? No. However, $550 billion in new stimulus will not work. The explanation is much simpler than some might realize at times.
Since the job losses began in November 2007, when there were 146,703,000 jobs (…Continue
