First Fifty-Six Days:  What Obama Hath Wrought

The first fifty-six days of the Obama presidency have been—to put it mildly—planned frenzy.  Frenzy in an attempt to keep We-the-People from knowing what’s really going on (chaos is a tyrant’s friend) and planned because it was!  Just some of what Obama and his supplicant Congress have wrought includes:

Obama: A Study in Presidential Arrogance

The whole world was supposed to fall at his feet. He was supposed to spend the next four to eight years (or four to ten as he once said during the late campaign) just making airy pronouncements while everyone danced lemming-like to his tune of hope-n-change. It was supposed to be easy. Heck, The One himself even pronounced that he enjoyed being president. “And it turns out I’m very good at it,” he assured everyone during a luncheon with TV anchors a few weeks ago.

The consummate demagogue

Demagogues tend to get their way by inflaming others’ prejudices and hatred.  Hitler had the Jews, whom he used as scapegoats for all of Germany’s ills.  Lenin fired up the masses by railing against capitalists.  Mao Zedong blamed China’s woes on imperialists and their “running dog compradors”.  In all cases the demagogue uses popular desires and prejudices, rather than reason to achieve his ends.

ACORN Involved in 2010 Census

ACORN, the radical direct-action group that excels at bringing the dead, illegal aliens, people who have already voted, and minors to the polls, is seeking to take its ballot box-stuffing operation to the next level.

Caterpillar: Obama’s Latest Oops

Many of us are quite wary of promises made by politicians. (To be blunt) just because a person is president, doesn't mean he knows what he's talking about. Case in point, back in early February…

Clinton Puts US Head in Pakistani Sand

imageRudrapur, India.  If Americans (or anyone else) needed proof that our government is hopelessly lost in South Asia, this morning’s Indian papers provide all the confirmation they need.  The article in question featured a beaming Secretary of State Hillary Clinton praising the Pakistanis for “themselves resolving [their] difficulties.”

Obama Gunning for the Second Amendment

This will seem like a strange way to open a piece of commentary, but the gun owners who voted for Barack Obama believing he respected Second Amendment rights remind me of the bumbling Inspector Clouseau.

America Through a Distorted Window

imageIn a book we wrote a number of years ago entitled “Our Cosmic Connection”, we opened one of the chapters with the following observation:  “In spite of all of our individual and collective faults, there is a ‘great good’ that exists in a very large number of us.  That good is personified in a wide range of human traits and behavior including private and public achievements, bravery, courage, sacrifice, industry, creativity, empathy, generosity, spontaneous volunteerism and spirit, either as individuals, or as a society.

Time for Steele to go as RNC chair

Ron Silver, a profile in courage

Ron Silver’s suffering is at an end.  His passing Sunday ended a two-year long bout with esophageal cancer.  He used to say that it was his curse to have been stricken with a type of that terrible disease that was so exotic that few people - and, until he came along, few if any celebrities - had contracted it.  As a result, victims with cancer of the esophagus had no lobby generating large research and development budgets aimed at producing a cure.

We must get rid of backyard gardens….evil I tell you!

We aren’t to be trusted.  Only the Government can be trusted!  We aren’t to be trusted with achievement and business development (multi trillion dollar entitlement and porky pig bill masquerading as an emergency stimulus bill).  We aren’t to be trusted with managing and raising our own children (Rights of the Child proposed controls from the UN being discussed in committee for a later vote in congress).

Living Like it’s 1899

Newsweek has some prescriptions to save us all. We should live like it’s 1899 instead of 2009. Don’t use a dryer for your clothes, chop your own wood for heating fuel, buy a black and white TV because it’s “just as good,” and don’t get the Internet or cable TV. Sheese, talk about a kill-joy!

New York Mag: Obama’s ‘Want Each Other’ Unlike Other Presidents?

Did you know that no presidential couple ever “wanted each other” until the coming of The One and his Michelle? Well Stacy Schiff of New York Magazine knows, blurting out like a star-struck 13-year-old at a Jonas Brothers concert the question, “How long has it been since a First Couple seemed to want each other?” What about George W. and Laura’s love? Must have all been a head fake. H.W. Bush and Barbara, it’s all a sham I tell you. Nancy and Ron? Fuggedabout it. Bill and Hillary… OK, you might have something there. None of the rest really care about each other who can doubt? Not Schiff, anyway. No, as far as Schiff is concerned, love’s been reinvented by Michelle and her beau, The One.
