NYT’s Failure to Understand Our Times Now Complete

To show how pathetic The New York Times and John Broder are at analyzing the current political climate, all one has to do is read “Gore-Lieberman: A Hyphen Apart? Try Poles.” Here the Times clearly reveals that they see but two types of American politician: the good guys against the war, and the evil ones for it. That’s it. To the Times there is no other issue, no other divide, no other substantive thought, no other thing that separates our leaders one from the other. There is only the war and nothing else.

How Dare ABC News Treat Obama as if He Were a Conservative!

Richard A. Viguerie, publisher of ConservativeHQ.com, appears to have had the same reaction as many conservatives to Barack Obama’s performance and his subsequent complaints regarding the ABC News debate in Philadelphia between Hillary Clinton and Obama: Barack’s performance lacked any sort of dignity desired in a president and he showed clear thinking Americans he’s nothing more than an “empty-suit.”

Charlotte Mayor McCrory and His Miserable City

When Forbes Magazine released their list of the 10 most miserable cities in America, Charlotte’s Mayor and gubernatorial candidate Pat McCrory couldn’t come up with a better excuse than “I think they need drug testing at Forbes.”

Hedonism Leads to Apathy

The world has seen many cultures rise and fall.  The common thread among all, from the Ancient Romans and Greeks to others, is that prior to their fall they became selfish, gluttonous and apathetic.  They adopted the feel good and do it now mentality that today’s secularists feel is an invention of their own.

Poor Coverage of Pope’s Visit

It was big news that the Pope said that he was ashamed that the Catholic Church had pedophiles in its midst. But there is much more to the story. The media ignore the well-documented fact, which the Pope understands, that the pedophile problem was a function of homosexual men infiltrating the church as priests.

Change Doesn’t Come by Electing a President

We have heard during this presidential election cycle – ad naseum – how our country is in dire need of “change.” We are promised by each of the candidates that they are the ones – the only ones – who can bring about this much needed change. Of course, this is all disingenuous politicking. The fact of the matter is this: the office of the presidency is quite limited in its power to affect any change at all. The real entity capable of affecting immediate and dramatic change in government, the governmental branch with the real power, is the Legislative Branch.

Agreeing With Both Obama and Hillary!

image—Satire—

As the national mud wrestling match being staged by the Democrat Party grinds on and on and on, I am startled to find myself in agreement with much of what Barack Obama has to say about Hillary.

For instance, I agree with Obama that Hillary is a:

Rich, elitist “bi***,” way out of touch with average Americans;

Beer and whiskey guzzling Annie Oakley NOT;

Weak-minded female who would be nothing without her marriage to a former president, perjurer, and sex addict;

Alan Keyes: Not Again

So Alan Keyes has announced he’s leaving the Republican Party. Over the last few months, I’ve received numerous emails and comments from those hoping that Keyes would enter the presidential race in some capacity: either as a candidate for the top spot, or that one of those running would select him for veep.

St. Francis should have tried bribes

St. Francis Hospital serves a number of low-income people in suburban Chicago.  Losing millions of dollars by caring for uninsured patients, four years ago St. Francis sought approval to build an additional hospital in a more prosperous suburb, Orland Park.  The idea was to generate income that would help the original facility survive.

“A Message to Every Politician”

Dear politician:

We finally get it!  For a growing number of us, it is now crystal clear what you are trying to do and have been doing for far too long.  You think we are ignorant, stupid, naive and apathetic.  Some of us are.  But our eyes are open now.

Unfair and Unbalanced

The phrase “fair and balanced” certainly has a positive connotation. It is thought the greatest quality a news outlet can possess; it has even become a motto of the Fox News Network. Yet I don’t find Fox very balanced at all.

Bullies to tackle bullies

In Tuesday morning’s Boston Herald, “Pols vow to get tough on bullies”. Granted, we live in a different day, complete with non-judgmentalism, thus a lack of conscience or shame. But who are politicians to talk when it comes to addressing the problem of bullying?

A McCain-Rice ticket?

In what would be an absolute disaster for the Democratic Party leading up to the November presidential election, it looks like there may be some truth to the behind the scenes scuttlebutt that current Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice may just be open to a feeler sent out by the McCain camp to have her join his ticket as the Republican vice presidential nominee.
