Republicans Taste Their Own Medicine

By D. E. Carson, published on Sep 19, 2010

Robert Gibbs is a horse's ass. So are Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and Karl Rove.

Wait a minute! Did reknown Republican backer D.E.Carson actually say that Karl Rove is a horse's ass? Oh, my GOD! It's a sign of the apocolypse.

Yes and remember folks, you read it here first, D.E.Carson actually called Karl Rove a horse's ass and lumped him in with such undesirable nimrods as Robert Gibbs, Obama, Reid and Pelosi. So here's why I did it. It's really a simple answer. Because D.E.Carson is not a straight-ticket, down-the-line Republican (okay, so I channeled Bob Dole... (more)

Rising Poverty Level and Obama's Middle Class Fantasy

By Dan Ehrlich, published on Sep 16, 2010

...to many jobless Americans, is set to reveal both unemployment and poverty rising with the country possibly going into a Regression, economically sliding back to the future. The anticipated poverty rate increase — from 13.2 percent to about 15 percent is unfortunate timing for President Obama and his party just seven weeks before the mid-term elections.Should this estimate hold true, about 45 million people, or more than 1 in 7 Americans were in poverty last year. It would be the highest single-year increase since the government began calculating poverty figures in 1959. The... (more)

A Soulful 'Solar On The White House' Event

By Josh Marks, published on Sep 10, 2010

Given the gravity of global warming, a house of worship was the perfect place to welcome a group of students who traveled all the way from Maine to try to convince President Obama to re-install solar panels on the roof of the White House (Jimmy Carter first installed them in 1979 and Ronald Reagan removed them in 1986).The historic All Souls Unitarian Universalist Church on 16th Street in Northwest Washington, D.C. was the setting Thursday evening for a soulful panel of speakers and an enthusiastic audience who welcomed the students from Maine's Unity College at the end of their road trip.... (more)

You Can’t Blame Bush Anymore

By D. E. Carson, published on Sep 4, 2010

Op-ed

“We inherited this economic crisis from the previous administration.” This is the mantra of the Obama Administration for the last 20 months. They want to make everything Bush’s fault and yet, there comes a time when you have to stop blaming someone else for your mistakes. But as usual, Obama keeps playing the “Not my fault” card as if it’s supposed to make all of us poor Americans somehow feel better.

First of all, this isn’t Bush’s fault as Obama would have you believe. The economy is the result of liberal fiscal policies that have been in place since 2006 when they... (more)

Bad News is Good News Waiting to Be Made

By the expat returned, published on Aug 22, 2010

...some of us may not want to look in the rearview mirror, so painful have these past years been. I recall a growing euphoria in the run-up to the ’08 presidential election. I had just returned to the States after fleeing to Europe for more than half of the Bush presidency, and, like Michelle Obama, I felt proud of my country for the first time in my adult life. Young people were turning out in record numbers to get Obama elected, and his New York campaign office was so overrun with volunteers that I was not able to do a voter drive. We had found a candidate who spoke from the heart,... (more)

Obama....a

By Robert Simms, published on Aug 22, 2010

A recent poll conducted by The Pew Forum reveals that 18% of Americans believe that President Barack Hussein Obama is a Muslim. Imagine that.The poll also shows that only 34% say that Obama is a Christian. Personally, I fall in with the 43% of Americans who do not know what religion the President follows.This poll was conducted prior to Obama's recent statements regarding the Ground Zero Mosque and it would be interesting to see if those percentages have changed.Joshua DuBois, who Time magazine once called "Obama's pastor-in- Chief", is a bit surprised by the poll numbers. According to... (more)

Social Security Is Worth Fighting For

By Libdrone, published on Aug 22, 2010

...usually gets a corrected payment to the recipient's bank account within 1--2 days. And Social Security has a very low expense ratio for the huge volume of money it manages and distributes, from people who are working today to people who can no longer work. We should all support President Obama's efforts to hold off Republican plans to privatize Social Security. Such a move could only benefit Wall Street, and honestly after all we've learned about those folks do you really want Them to get their hands on an effective program that provides for millions of elderly and disabled... (more)

Obama Wants to Sell More Guns? That's Not What I Read

By the expat returned, published on Jul 31, 2010

Through a HuffPo headline, I recently came across an article at McClatchy news titled "Obama seeks to expand arms exports by trimming approval process". A disturbing thought. I read the article in full, already preparing my comment in my head. I was going to write something about the fabled War Machine, merchants of death, Obama equaling Bush, et cetera.

However, as I read on, I discovered the foulest piece of non-journalism I've read in a while. Then I went to read the comments that my fellow HuffPo users had written. They were of the most awful, reactionary, apocalyptic sort,... (more)

The Devil and the Details

By JJFCPA, published on Jul 26, 2010

When President Obama signed the new financial services reform legislation, there were rounds of applause by the Democratic politicians and broad smiles on their faces. Two who stood out were Senator Christopher Dodd and Congressman Barney Frank who led the effort to get the law enacted. According to press reports in the media, including the Wall Street Journal, it was their late night last minute negotiations that reconciled the difference between the House and Senate versions of the bill. Similar to Obamacare, which also passed earlier in the year, the law passes the huge effort of writing... (more)

Gulf Oil Spill Over – For Now at Least

By D. E. Carson, published on Jul 18, 2010

... on fire and the fire department doesn’t bother to show up for about three or four hours after the fire was reported. Then when the flames have gone away, they pack up and leave – never mind that there are still burning embers in that pile of ash where you used to live.

This is how HRH Obama has handled the gulf oil spill. He didn’t bother to even think about it for almost 40 days and then he decides to get involved when his own supporters begin to question his motives. During the first few days of the crisis, over 30 countries offered their assistance to handle the spill and... (more)
