Don’t Worry about Big Brother

Obama-looking-at-computer

Yes, it’s true that the Obama administration has been intruding more and more into the private lives of our citizens, with electronic surveillance and the like, but don’t blame them. They are just picking up where George W. Bush left off. They don’t really want to impinge on the civil liberties of Americans, but because…

The Nobel Prizes are a Crock

The Nobel prizes are a crock — and I’m not saying that because I haven’t won one yet. They just are. I’m not talking about the prizes for physics, chemistry and medicine. They may be a crock too, but I am not qualified to judge.  The prizes for economics certainly must be a crock, because…

It sure has been interesting over the past week to watch the news media finally approach the Obama administration with the one tactic many of us thought they’d never use in their coverage: Some good old fashioned scrutiny.

When it comes to O’Reilly, I will often fast-forward not only through his commercials,…

What Cyprus Portends for America

Cyprus is a small island country in the Mediterranean.  Their government did something last week that should be a wakeup call to all citizens of debtor nations.  In order to continue to receive support in the form of loans from the European Union, they agreed to tax 10% of all bank deposits.  They later withdrew…

An Unbalanced President

Obama-Smiling

President Obama has probably repeated the phrase “balanced approach” when talking about budget and deficit solutions, over 100 times at this point.  If you just listen to him saying that phrase over and over, you probably think that he is interested in raising some taxes, as well as cutting spending to solve our country’s debt problem. …
