President Obama has been reelected. Yes. You heard correctly. President Obama has been reelected. Four years of recession. Four years of scandal. Allies insulted. Enemies bowed to. Ambassadors killed and dragged through the streets. Debt increased by five billion. Obamacare set to take effect. All this. And America still reelected a small, petty, vicious man who makes Jimmy Carter look like George Washington. I for one welcome my new overlords in the mainstream media. I for one welcome my new overlords in the Death Panels. I for one welcome my new overlords in the Muslim world. First amendment? It insults Allah! [...]
Some of you probably don’t enjoy the ‘Obama everyday’ approach that some blogs have adopted, and I have also struggled with this, but the truth of the matter is that this Presidential campaign is increasingly becoming a story between two opposing forces and a good storyteller (me) should always focus on the main characters in that battle. The battle lines have been drawn up. On one side is President Barack Obama, who has taken the lead in the new-look Democratic Party and is being followed by assorted people like Senator Stabenow and Congresswomen Nancy Pelosi. He has declared war on [...]
It has been a while since I have done a post on the economy and the debt bubble that has engulfed the United States and Europe and most of the world. In part this because the subject is so depressing. It is difficult for me, as I read more and more about the debt crisis, to see any way that the US or the world, for that matter, can work its way out from under the crushing weight of the debt they have incurred. In the United States, we tend to focus on our $16 trillion national debt, which is [...]
The markets, although a tad late in my opinion, are signaling that they have no faith that Europe or the United States are going to be able to get their economies growing again any time soon. The bad news doesn’t let up. Here are just a couple of headlines to demonstrate my point: Stock futures signal another day of losses. Report: Bank of America cutting at least 3,500 jobs Does anyone doubt that the markets are right not to have any faith in our leaders to get the economy going again? Have you seen any evidence coming from either the [...]
On this date in 1944, Allied forced mad their landings in Normandy. It is still, and probably always will be, the largest amphibious invasion ever mounted. While the Third Reich had less than a year left, there was much bloody and brutal fighting left to go. To properly commemorate the sacrifice and efforts of the rapidly departing, “greatest generation,” here is some comments from Ronald Reagan. If any veterans are reading this, thank you for your service. Related posts: Memorial Day – A Thank you for the Ultimate Sacrifice Related posts brought to you by Yet Another Related Posts Plugin.
We’ve been paying quite a bit of attention to the fact that the weather in the US has been colder, and stormier than usual this December. There has been record cold, record early cold, record snows, and record early snows. Now, some people would say that this is just an aberration, and there are always times when the weather does something out of the norm for a certain area. However, the record cold and snow is not restricted to the US, as the BBC reports. More than 80 people have died across Europe as days of snowstorms and sub-zero temperatures [...]
