Cherry Tree and President

The apochryphal story of George Washington confessing to cutting down a cherry tree is captured in this painting. Washington was noted for his integrity. Wonder what fable might arise regarding our current president. There are many to choose from although none worth commemorating in art. Here are a few for aspiring artists: H/T John Rolls for Obama Cartoon Barack Obama [...]

The Good Kerrey on The Bad President

It is getting harder and harder to hide the disrespect and disgust that people have for President Obama. Increasingly, Obama is seen as a bad president, one that has been an abysmal failure on both domestic and foreign affairs. Jimmy Carter, in hindsight, appears to have been effective. Except for a small cadre of cultist followers, the dissatisfaction is palpable. [...]

Liberalism Unmasked

There are reasons to be worried. Things are not right in America. Current conditions are unlike anything I have witnessed in my seven decades on this sphere. Here is a pretty good summation of what I feel: I don’t know if these are the last days, or just the last days of freedom, but our republic is now beset by [...]

Kick The Liar In Chief Out Of Office

Let’s get serious folks! We have an inveterate liar in the highest office in the land. There is no crime in saying so: To announce that there must be no criticism of the president… is morally treasonable to the American public. Theodore Roosevelt What does a country do when its leader routinely ignores its laws and routinely lies to citizens? [...]

Joe Isuzu, Our President

Barack Obama is our Joe Isuzu President. Truth and integrity don’t matter. Joe was likable. Barack is not.

Economies Don’t Die

This country will die. History will record the cause as due to an event worse than the Great Depression. That diagnosis will be wrong.

Keynesian’s ObamaCare Dilemma

Where are the Keynesian economist’s objections to ObamaCare? By objections, I do not refer to dissatisfaction with the website implementation or the continuing revelations of cancellations or health cost increases. These are deficiencies that proponents and opponents alike can agree on. Keynesians, however, should object on macroeconomic grounds. The implementation of this program in a slow and ailing economy will [...]

Elmer Gantry or First Hustler?

My characterization of Barack Obama from the very beginning was to Elmer Gantry. Here was a con man through and through who had no scruples when it came to a scam. For those wondering, the prior sentence refers to Barack Obama. I believe the connection made between Barack and Obama on these pages was over four years ago. Regardless, it [...]

Is Obama Through?

Is Obama through? That is, have his lies and incompetence finally caught up with him and emasculated what remains of his effectiveness. Has he taken the concept of “lame duck” to new levels?

Actions Speak Louder Than Words

Actions speak louder than words. Nowhere is that observation more pertinent than when dealing with a demagogue.

Tom Lester provides these reality conflicts routinely inherent in our glib Man-Child’s favorite rhetoric:

Political Civility

Tom Lester, friend of this site, provides another piece of his writing. In this article, he deals with “civility” or at least the narrow form of the word as it is defined in politics. This use reminds me of my late-life entry into academia where I quickly learned about “collegiality.” ┬áMost people had numerous initials after their names and believed [...]
