The American education system isn’t the envy of the world.  It’s not even the prize of  U.S. citizens who are becoming more disenchanted with the archaic system the longer it continues.  It is a fine example of why the government is not the answer to what ills us.

The Reason for State Budget Collapses: Tax Cuts

Obama Hasn't Done Enough Damage Yet.  More Coming

Obama Hasn't Done Enough Damage Yet. More Coming

Between the failed stimulus package (8% unemployment?), bailouts for the auto industry (the only one doing well is Ford), hostages in Iran, the fact that Chavez doesn’t like us and now the Russians are gearing up for another cold war…  it’s obvious that Obama hasn’t accomplished nearly enough destruction of the American way-of-life.  That’s ok, […]

The Rising Cost of Congress

The Rising Cost of Congress

For the last year, we have all been beaten over the head repeatedly with the notion that health care costs are rising so fast that families can’t afford their insurance.  Is anyone applying the same formula to Congress?  They don’t mind spending our money in a care-free manner. We’ve built numerous post-offices and airports as […]

Medicaid an Anchor Around The Necks of States

Medicaid and Medicare were held up as the government-run successes that prove that we can afford universal health care and that it works.  In North Carolina and Oklahoma, severe Medicaid budget overruns are being reported and the blame is partly that enrolllees are using more medical services.  Of course they are, because it’s free.  That […]

Obama Still Missing the Mark on What Americans Want

Obama Still Missing the Mark on What Americans Want

A landmark election result came out of Massachusetts on Tuesday and the White House doesn’t see the forest or the trees.

Obama: More Speeches Needed for Policies to Succeed

Obama: More Speeches Needed for Policies to Succeed

I was watching an interview of President Obama by George Stephanopoulos just after the election of Scott Brown to the U.S. Senate. I wanted to see how he would adjust to the voice of the American voter. Would he pull a Clinton and understand that his policies were unpopular, state that he hears us and […]

Progressive Soap Box, Air America, to File Bankruptcy and Cease Programming

This memo at airamerica.com closes the chapter on a liberal talk radio outlet.  The memo basically blames the economy.  While economics (specifically supply and demand) are in-play, the economy is not why they lasted only 4 1/2 years. The very difficult economic environment has had a significant impact on Air America’s business. This past year […]

Pick-Up Truck to Blame for Coakley Loss

Pick-Up Truck to Blame for Coakley Loss

Commentators and pundits are trying to figure out just why Coakley lost.  The White House press secretary thinks it’s Bush’s fault, Coakley’s lead pollster blames the White House, and the rest of the liberal leadership … hates Scott Brown’s truck. John Kerry said, “I’ve got news for you, Scott: George Bush drove a truck, too, […]

One Year In, Obama Achieves Everthing He Promised.. kinda

One Year In, Obama Achieves Everthing He Promised.. kinda

Obama raised the bar by promising the world to American voters. This kind of “two cars in every garage” campaigning has been done for decades, but no one did it better.
