I'm still waiting for Barack Obama to answer this one question:
Senator, you speak of change. Exactly what kind of change do you mean?
All Senator Obama can say is "It's time for a change." Change of what? Ideas? Mindset? Underwear?
We know that both Hillary and Obama are adamantly against the policies of the current sitting president. We also know that many of their supporters are ready to unleash the gates of Hell on the current administration should the word "impeachment" ever be uttered in the House of Representatives. With less than a year in the presidency... Read More
It is with a heavy heart and great and crushing sorrow that I admit to you, dear reader, that I am, in fact, going to vote for Barack Obama for President of the United States. And before you go on shouting at me that the race hasn’t even yet been decided because the primaries and caucuses are still going… let’s be real for a moment.
The reason I do watch sports and don’t watch politics is because the outcomes are not predictable in sports – there are great comebacks and amazing upsets. Not so in politics. And don’t go waxing on to me about... Read More
While I was perusing the back pages of my local free paper my attention turned to the now-standard-fare "medical research" ads located there. As someone who has long known the Make-Rent-and-Bills-Hustle, there have been more-than-one-hand's-fingers times that I have considered these myself.
But both in real life and in fictional dramatization has this gone awry; the point is, you sign at the dotted line and if changes are irreversible, you have nothing on 'em...
In relation to this I couldn't help but thinking of the Tuskegee experiments. In the last few days I have mentioned... Read More
Following another political spaking at the hands of opponent Barack Obama, Hillary clinton addressed a crowd of supporters at the University of Texas, El Paso basketball arena attempting to use a southern expression about the lack of substance she believes is very apparent in the Bush Administration."There's a great saying in Texas: all hat and no cattle. Well after seven years of George Bush, we need a lot less hat and a lot more cattle."It's not readily apparent, but it seems that Senator Clinton thinks she's a cow. Of course, on that particular aspect of her presence, I'm inclined to agree... Read More
The St. Petersburg Times has an interesting Op-Ed about how President Putin has built up Russia’s security apparatus to the point that it now it exceeds the power the feared KGB once held in the Soviet Union.
As a former KGB man himself, Putin has spent his Presidency rebuilding the secret police and intelligence services that former President Yeltsin dismantled. After the fall of the Soviet Union, the KGB was reborn as the FSB as it is called today.
Yeltsin felt that under Soviet rule the KGB had too much power and influence. He liked the U.S. system of spreading... Read More
The Civil War was about State’s Rights versus Federal Government Rights. The Confederacy believed that the States should have the right to decide for itself whether or not to enter the Union as a slave state or a free state. The Missouri Compromise was Congress’ attempt to settle the argument once and for all, but the Confederacy wanted nothing to do with it and thus began America’s first Civil War.
May 11, 2008 may be the start date of the second.
The 50 States have until May 11, 2008 to comply with the RealID Act – an Orwellian de facto national... Read More
The Associated Press reported yesterday that included in a tax rebate deal hammered out between Congress and The White House is a provision to raise the limits on FHA loans and the mortgages that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac may purchase. Originally it was reported that this limit would be up to $725,000 in high-cost areas, such as Southern California. Today it is being reported that the limits would be up to $730,000 for FHA loans, and 125 to 150% of an area's median home price for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac mortgages, that would be considered conforming loans.
Conforming loan limits... Read More
