Obama’s War on Energy is about Control

When one thinks of energy, the thoughts about economic growth rarely come into play.  In fact, most take it for granted.  It charges our iPhones, laptops, and Kindles, but it also is the lifeblood that keeps our economy growing.  It’s also the critical element that keeps our health services running.  It allows us to channel… Read More »

America Deserves Better

The U.S. economy grew at a 2 percent annual rate in the third quarter.  The slight improvement was the result of more consumer and federal government spending.  Consumer spending improved from a 1.5 percent rate to 2 percent annual rate. And federal spending surged. Despite the modest increase, economic growth remains too weak to advance… Read More »

Mitt Romney Is Wrong On Defense Department Cuts

Mitt Romney has made the prevention of President Barack Obama’s sequestration plan one of his primary campaign talking points. He’s probably done this for two reasons: it plays well with voters in Virginia and veterans, but it also helps with those who want the U.S. to have the strongest military possible. There’s nothing wrong with… Read More »

Sen. McCaskill Testy Over Question about her Husband’s ‘Dining Room’ Deals

Incumbent Democratic Senator Claire McCaskill got a little testy with Dana Loesch, editor of Breitbart’s Big Journalism, during a press conference after Thursday night’s senate debate where Loesch asked the senator about her husband’s business deals, which involved selling tax credits tied to stimulus money.  McCaskill’s husband, Joseph Shepard, allegedly conducted these deals in the… Read More »

Biden Unhinged in VP Debate, while Ryan exuded self-control

  Last night’s Vice Presidential debate did put more pressure on Vice President Biden, who was tasked with delivering the same old progressive talking points about taxes, foreign policy, abortion, and health care – albeit with a little more spiritedness.  However, the pervasive grinning, smiling, and interrupting came off as egregiously arrogant and condescending.  Biden… Read More »

Romney Destroys Obama in First Debate, Left-wingers Go Nuts

We all got a shot of life Wednesday night from Mitt Romney.  I received a lot of flak, and some insults, for my previous post castigating Romney for lacking joie de vivre, but he came out swinging and left the president looking for his teleprompter.  While some posted polls in the comment section to show Romney’s campaign… Read More »

The Debate #Fail No One is Talking About

It’s no surprise Obama lost the debate, even for his own campaign. The Obama camp floated the idea that the president would be under-prepared for the debate early last week. Jim Messina, arguably the brains behind the president’s campaign strategy, had a nationwide campaign conference call outlining just that. Even the president himself joined the… Read More »

Barack Obama Continues to Lie About Taxes – Part 1

I’ve written about this often: It seems that President Obama is taking the “throw it at the wall and see what sticks” approach to his campaign ads. This means that he is making claims, regardless of how false they are, and hoping they get enough viewership without the average American even checking on the validity… Read More »

Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.

Lately, the phrase “Chose your neighbors wisely.” has become increasingly important.  For years, the significance as to what the government was doing, or how the government was growing, was a distant thought in my mind because my life itself was so busy and all consuming.  Like many people  I guess I had the mindset that our government was… Read More »

Under Obama, U.S. Economy Slips – First to Seventh in just three years

As voters begin to choose the next President of the United States, a firm reminder of Obama’s failure to run the world’s most prosperous economy came to light. From 2009 to 2012, the U.S. economy has gone from frist place to seventh – the entire slip occurred under President Obama’s leadership. A report released by… Read More »

No Democrats, We Don’t Belong To The Government

  Democrats have shown just how far off the sanity cliff they’ve gone in their video to open the Democratic National Convention. Just to repeat, the narrator says, “Government is the only thing that we all belong to…we’re together as a part of our city, or our county or our state. Or our nation.” There’s… Read More »

ObamaStamp: The Rising Food Stamp Crisis

As unemployment continues to rise, which has held steady above 8 percent during most of President Obama’s term.  While consumers are spending more of their shrinking income on food, gas, and energy that also continue to rise, the government continues to increase their food stamp dependency.  This temporary safety net created by the government, continues… Read More »

Paul Ryan’s Defense Of 2008-2009 Votes

One of the big questions since Mitt Romney selected Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan as is running mate is whether it would bring in small government conservatives and libertarians on the Romney bandwagon. Ryan is well-liked by people due to his “Roadmap For America’s Future” and his 2009 verbal destruction of Obamacare to the President’s face.… Read More »
