President Obama

Apparently President Obama has discovered that the American people may be getting screwed at the gas pump, and has decided to use the power of his office to investigate the problem. "We are going to make sure that no one is taking advantage of the American people for their own short-term gain," Obama said last […]

In the wake of their sound thrashing in the mid-term elections last week, many Democrats seem to be getting the idea that people do want change, even if it’s not the change that President Obama promised when he was on the campaign trail. Some, but not all, Democrats seem to be listening, at least a […]

It seems like every week or two, some new internet myth makes the rounds, and I get swamped with forwarded e-mails from readers who want me to be aware of the latest threat to life as we know it. Not to mention the same old crap that gets recycled over and over again, because somebody […]

Tuesday the American people sent a clear message to their elected officials that they are unhappy with the way things are going, and they don’t want to go down the road we have been taking. Now, it is up to those newly elected, and to those who retained their offices, to listen to that message. […]

I’ll be glad to see Tuesday come and go, if for no other reason than that we’ll finally see an end to all of the political ads on television, where every candidate tells us how terrible their opponents are, in wildly exaggerated claims, but never seem to get around to telling us what makes them […]

She came here […]

Despite the August 31 deadline to end combat operations in Iraq, and President Obama’s declaration that the U.S. combat role had ended there, yesterday American troops found themselves in the middle of a gun battle, when insurgents attacked their base in Baghdad. Combat knows no calendar. According to an Associated Press news story, twelve people […]

Last week the NAACP created a media firestorm when it accused some supporters of the Tea Party of “explicit racist behavior” and accused the Tea Party of a “drive to push our country back to the pre-civil rights era.” While I am not a member of the Tea Party, and while some of its most […]

Texas Republican Representative Joe Barton enraged a lot of people yesterday when he apologized to BP for the $20 billion relief fund President Obama demanded the company establish to compensate victims of the Gulf oil spill, calling it a “shakedown.” “I do not want to live in a country where any time a citizen or […]

Disjointed thoughts on the oil spill. Every time BP representatives open their mounts about the oil spill, they do as much polluting with bulls$@& as their oil is polluting the waters of the Gulf of Mexico. It seems that BP pretty much equals BS. I couldn’t believe it, but my wife sat right beside me […]
