What Obama’s “Bulworth” Comment Shows About Us


Almost forgotten within the whirlwind of last week’s columns and news stories covering the Obama Administration’s scandals was a piece from The New York Times discussing the “onset of woes” he’s had to deal with. Various aides told The Times on, and off, the record how the President is doing all he can to make sure his second term agenda ...

Amid scandals, Obama re-re-re pivots to jobs and the economy


The President is off to Baltimore today to do what he does best – give speeches – in hopes of taking the focus off of a series of government scandals. President Obama will visit a school, a dredging manufacturing plant and a worker re-training center on this trip. Obama is continuing his “Middle Class Jobs & Opportunity Tour” which started ...

“progressives” in American Politics


While “progressives” have existed in both major American political Parties for over a century, in recent years “progressives” have consumed the Democratic Party’s structural hierarchy while simultaneously increasingly insinuating themselves into the ranks of Republican Party leadership. This has led to a blurring in the minds of the American voter of the distinction between the two. Combine that blurred distinction ...

Billion Dollar Babies and American Jihad – Intellectual Froglegs


And here is the latest installment of Intellectual Froglegs: Joe Dan Gorman nails it yet again, with his in-depth analysis of leftist propaganda on Jihadists, phobias, abortion, Planned Parenthood, and Janet Napolitano. In case you’re wondering, Napolitano has no clue how to do her job, except the part where she spews disjointed jargon in Congressional hearings. And the new inconvenient ...

What Obama doesn’t understand about the American entrepreneur


Our President bemoans those with means. Unfortunately, he doesn’t even understand what “means” means or what a “job” really is. When was the last time our commander-in-chief decided not to cash his own paycheck so that his employees could cash theirs? I did that just two weeks ago and will likely do it again in the near future. When was ...

Employment situation still dicey as more jobs lost than expected

Initial jobless claims come in than economists had forecast showing a still weak jobs climate. The Labor Department said Thursday that initial jobless claims for the week ending April 13th came in at a seasonally adjusted 352,000 which was slightly higher than expectations of 350,000 and an increase of 4,000 over last week’s numbers. The employment market has not yet rebounded even ...

Obama jobs efforts fail – Worst Participation Rate in Decades

Unemployed man

The Department of Labor’s monthly Employment Situation Report was released today with disturbingly bad news – the largest percentage of Americans since 1979 have just given up on the idea of ever finding work in the Obama economy. The civilian labor force declined by 496,000 over the month, and the labor force participation rate decreased by 0.2 percentage point to ...

Laser-like focus on the economy?

Il Duce Obama

In January, the Obama Administration announced a renewed laser-like focus on jobs and the economy. Where is it? President Obama has been pushing gun control, talking about sequestration as if it were doomsday and has now pivoted to immigration reform while the economy struggles to recover under the weight of an overgrown government. Recent Gallup polling shows that Americans top ...

How Joe Biden Spent $585,000 for One Night in Paris


Have you really thought about that? Here’s how he did it. There are more stories about this than I have toothpicks and we owned a restaurant. (Trust me, you end up with a lot of toothpicks after closing a restaurant.) I have a much different take on things but first “the facts:” When you think about it – I mean ...

When Did Success Become Anathema to Feminists?

Screen Shot 2013-03-10 at 12.30.07 AM

We live in a two income household nation, and the days of men being the sole breadwinners are dying.  Women are the majority of wage earners, and if the trends continue, they’ll become the main income earners by 2030.  So, women have made massive strides in the socio-economic landscape, and that’s a good thing.  However, when it comes to successful women, feminists can’t ...

Sequester Cuts Scam: “An Oldie But a Goodie”

Eagle- America Deserves Better

The situation in our nation today takes me back many years to the early days of a sit-com called “The Beverly Hillbillies”.  I remember the Clampetts hooking up with “Honest John” Shafer, played by long time comedian Phil Silvers.  “Honest John” sold them every monument in Washington, D C (De Cesspool). Those “dumb ole’ Clampetts” just kept giving “Honest John” ...

In the MSM Every Silver Lining Is Obscured by a Cloud

I’ve about decided that reading three newspapers a day, plus may be bad for my emotional health. Normally the day starts with the Washington Examiner, a fine tabloid with a conservative editorial page. I like the Examiner even though the paper is evidently unaware the county were I live — Prince William — exists, as the paper’s Northern Virginia ...

President has Personal Discretion in Government Shutdown


This was originally posted April 09, 2011 during that threat of government shutdown. It’s regrettable the American people are rounding this corner again. The sharp contrast of lost standards from a mere two-years ago reflects how Obama has effectively “nudged” a serious deterioration of American expectations. This is a most shameful course of action for any American President. The president ...
