All of the bickering about shutting down the government has politicians and everyday citizens pointing fingers and passing the blame around, depending on who they claim allegiance to. But what you have to understand is that it is not a Democrat or a Republican problem. It’s a party problem. And as long as we have […]

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. That being said, we sure have a bunch of total wackos in Washington. Here we go again with talk of shutting down the government, sequesters, and all kinds of nonsense between the House and Senate because they can’t work […]

On June 16, 1858, in a speech to delegates at the Illinois Republican State Convention, where they chose him to be their candidate for the U.S. Senate, running against Democrat Stephen A. Douglas, Abraham Lincoln said that "A house divided against itself cannot stand." I am reminded of Lincoln’s words every time I tune in […]

I know that a lot of blog readers are huge supporters of Sarah Palin, and at the risk of offending some of them (again), I have to say that I just don’t get it. I’ve tried, but I still stand by my statement in a blog a month ago titled Choose Your Poison that to […]

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. […]

As most of you know, when it comes to politicians, I’m an equal opportunity kind of guy. I don’t like any of them, Republican or Democrat. You can take a pile of dog doo doo and wrap it in any kind of cover you want, but inside it’s still crap, and sooner or later (usually […]

New York Governor David Paterson, no stranger to controversy, is a perfect example of why our country is in trouble. When a caller to a radio talk show asked Paterson yesterday about the financial burden illegal aliens put on taxpayers, the Governor answered in typical political mumbo jumbo when he replied “There’s a difference between […]

I see that the folks who live and breathe by whatever is on Fox News have something new to worry about, besides all of the conspiracies that the liberal administration has cooked up to ruin the country. It’s bad enough that they have to fret and fuss about government run health care, gay marriage, and […]

These days it seems like we can’t debate any issue without being labeled radical by those who oppose it, and no idea can stand on its merits alone, because we have to label it a Democratic or Republican ploy, or a Liberal or Conservative cause. It doesn’t matter if something is good for the country […]

Bad Nick is the alter ego of Nick Russell, the relatively mild mannered publisher of the Gypsy Journal RV travel newspaper and the author of a half dozen or so travel books. Before that, he spent his career publishing small town newspapers, and loved stepping on the toes of the local politicians who got caught […]
