…at some point, all of the people who own our Treasury notes expect to be paid back. While that is a novel concept to our president and Congress, most Americans understand that if you don’t pay back what you borrow, the lender eventually comes after you to claim the money, or whatever it is (such as your house) you bought with it. Even most high-school drop-outs understand this principle as do anyone who has ever watched the Sopranos. Unfortunately, our politicians in Washington do not.
Reckless spending by the G.O.P. is the cause of our fiscal woes

Make no mistake George W. Bush is no conservative. Sure, under the tutelage of Karl Rove, Bush managed to fool a significant number of voters into believing he shared their conservative values. But you can’t argue with his record: he’s a free-spending liberal who could make Ted Kennedy blush. Continue reading “George W. Bush has left our economy in shambles”
Obama goes into overdrive to fake foreign policy experience
Last week Barack Obama piled up more frequent flyer miles than in most campaign months. But did he win any votes by photo-opping and crooning his way across the Mideast and Europe in a week-long game of “Let’s Play President?” Continue reading “Ich Bin Ein Pretender”
A little girl in our neighborhood named Catherine, told me that she wanted to be president one day. Both of her parents, liberal Democrats, were standing there with us, and I asked Catherine, ‘If you were president what would be the first thing you would do?’
Catherine replied, ‘I would give houses to all the homeless people.’
‘Wow, what a worthy goal you have there, Catherine,’ I told her, while both parents beamed, ‘but, you don’t have to wait until you’re President to help homeless people. You can come over to my house and clean up all of the dog poop in the back yard, and I will pay you $5 dollars. Then, we can go over to the grocery store where the homeless guy hangs out, and you can give him the $5 dollars to use for a new house.’
Catherine, who was about 4, thought that over for a second, and then replied, ‘Why doesn’t the homeless guy come over and clean up the dog poop himself, and you can pay him the $5 dollars?’ Continue reading “Liberal ideals”
While I am not a prosecutor or law enforcement officer, I believe the threat “Reverend” Jackson made was a violation of the law and should be investigated by the Secret Service. I’ve read reports of other “crazies” making threats against presidential candidates and they are always taken seriously.
An open letter to the U.S. Secret Service
July 10, 2008
Director, U.S. Secret Service
Dear Director Sullivan:
I am writing to you today as a law-abiding, taxpaying, red-blooded, American citizen with a serious concern. Oh, I should also mention I’m a Republican.
While preparing breakfast for my kids this morning, I was watching ABC’s Good Morning America when a report came on about comments made by “Reverend” Jesse Jackson (I’m not sure where he preaches, but he’s usually running his mouth wherever there are cameras around). “Reverend” Jackson made a comment about wanting to “cut the nuts off” of Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama. Continue reading “Jackson’s Threat to Obama Must be Investigated by Secret Service”
But some Clinton supporters—acting like classic sore losers—seem bent on helping Obama lose. I’m completely confused by those Clinton supporters who have turned to Senator McCain. Do they really see him as the “woman’s” candidate?
Clinton supporters are sore losers which may cost the Democrats the White House

I have a lot of experience with the agony of defeat. Sure, winning is better, but that’s the way contests go. And it’s certainly the way a democracy works. As a candidate, you don’t always win. As a voter, you don’t always get to choose the winner. In either case, you gather yourself up and get ready to try again. Or you throw your support to another candidate, another bill, another policy.
