Census Workers Point Out Deficiencies in Current Operation

The Census director, Dr. Robert Groves, posted a kickoff letter for the Census workers as they head out to count those that did not return their census forms.  The letter is the stuff a cheer leading boss of 50,000+ new hires might give and didn’t immediately strike me as newsworthy, then I started reading the comments from the census workers ...

What’s Really Happening with Arizona’s Immigration Law?

rizona Governor, Jan Brewer signed her State's new tough immigration bill into law this week. There is heavy support from Arizona residents, but firm opposition from liberal-leaning organizations. Arizona has been pleading for assistance from the Federal government for years, so this is not a new problem, nor did Obama cause it.

Obama Disingenuous on Health Care Reform Bi-partisanship

Obama has repeated (ad ad nauseum) that he would be willing to meet Republicans in the middle on health care.  The GOP says to do that would mean starting over, which is something that the President will not do. So who is being more partisan?  The GOP is saying that it cannot support the huge spending and government take-over that ...

Real World Unexpectedly Not Obama's Utopia

Our current President promised us “hope”, “change”,  and prosperity.  These are the usual promises of politicians, but these, most Americans believed.  The wars would  end, the Iranians would listen, the EU is a model to be replicated, global warming would cause heat and drought, foreclosures would cease, being tough on terror, and middle-class Americans would not see increasing taxes. There ...

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.

Double-Standard or Outright Dishonesty?

The “double-standard” has been thrown around lately as pundits and analysts consider moves by the present White House to put their policies in place.  A double-standard just implies unfairness, and life just isn’t fair. Sure, taxing the full-featured health plans that workers with dangerous jobs often choose seems ok at first.  The double-standard part of it is that now the ...
