Obama’s Limited Intelligence

Barack Obama picks Leon Panetta as CIA Director?

My jaw dropped.

Pay-to-Play Politics, the SEIU and Obamacare

The Governor of Illinois, for all his well-documented faults, has performed at least one valuable public service. He has made it clear to the meanest intelligence that our new President-elect emerged from a hopelessly corrupt political culture. Barack Obama oozed from the same stinking Chicago swamp that produced Blagojevich, and a man whose formative years were spent wallowing in the muck with such creatures isn’t likely to be long in White House before the stench of pay-to-play politics begins to pervade the place. That this has important implications for the future of health care in this country has already been demonstrated by a brazen episode of cronyism involving one of America’s most prestigious health care institutions, the University of Chicago Medical Center.

An Ordinary Investor Looks at the Coming Decade

It’s a new year, and we must look beyond the mess of sub-prime mortgages and unfunded auto pensions—toward the markets where American citizens have to invest their private capital for the next decade.

Burris denied senate seat for now

Roland Burris, Senator-Designate from the State of Illinois, has been denied a seat in the United States Senate for now.  The newly-appointed successor to Barack Obama reluctantly accepted the appointment by Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich, after expressing his total disgust at the “appalling behavior” [sic] of the Governor—who is accused of trying to sell Obama’s Senate seat to the highest bidder. His disgust at the behavior of Rod “Big Bucks” Blagojevich was apparently trumped by the fact that he, Burris, is the smartest, most experienced, most qualified person in the entire State of Illinois and there was no person in the entire state who was more qualified to serve in the Senate. Therefore, according to Burris, it was incumbent upon him to hold his nose and accept the appointment as United States Senator, for the good of Illinois, the United States and the world.

Chaos in the U.S. Senate: Senator Al Franken? Roland Burris Not?


Everyone knows that the Democrat Party is comprised of lairs, crooks, and near crooks, all suffering from various degree of mental insanity. That is to be expected of anyone who dabbles in liberalism, the root of all insanity in the galaxy.

However, Democrats have not, until now, been known as particularly stupid beings. Yes, their policies are mindless nonsense, but most liberals are capable of complex multi-tasking.

Government Shouldn’t Fund Media Bias with Taxpayer Dollars

Boycott The New York Times editor Don Feder said today that the idea of a government bailout for struggling newspapers, which has been floated recently by some legislators and journalists, is “atrocious” and akin to “forcing taxpayers to subsidize [media] bias.”

Are Liberals Getting Smarter? Let’s Hope So

Something quite extraordinary happened on Saturday, January 3rd. The Huffington, a bastion of liberal thought, published a commentary by Harold Ambler that demanded an apology from Al Gore for all the lies he’s been telling about “global warming” or, as the alarmists now call it, “climate change.”

Obama’s Revolutionary “Vision”

On the Fox News program “Hannity & Colmes” in December, analyst Dick Morris made the absolutely critical point that President Bush has taken the country so far to the left, in terms of his socialist-style Wall Street bailout program and his integration of the U.S. economy into a new emerging international financial order, that anything Barack Obama does in this area seems almost mainstream. This is because what we were expecting from Obama we are now getting from Bush. So Obama doesn’t look so radical anymore.

Deepak Chopra Peddles Metaphysical Swill

In the 6/25/07 edition of U.S. News & World Report, New Age luminary Deepak Chopra was interviewed about his novel about Buddha interestingly titled “Buddha”.  Though many will no doubt fawn all over this narrative in search of some new spiritual insight or revelation in much the same way as they did with “The Da Vinci Code” these past few years, however, it seems some of the answers provided by this guru renowned by millions had as much thought put to them as the titling of this novel.

Are We Going To Let 535 Politicians Destroy America?

Sure, these 535 idiot politicians that control America, have managed to bamboozle a majority of the American people over the last 80 to 100 years into thinking that Mother Government is a far better solution to our national problems than freedom, liberty, self-reliance, individual achievement and responsibility and capitalism, backed by honor, integrity and honesty.  But to do it, they had to buy these naive Americans off with our money.  To do it, they had to take control of the money supply and are now about to take control of every aspect of American life ..... if we let them.

Obama’s Non-intelligent Choice for CIA

By nominating Leon Panetta to head the CIA, President-elect Barack Obama has confirmed fears that he, and Democrats in general, are not capable of applying sufficient priority to the war on terror and national security because they simply do not understand the gravity involved.
