Reasons To Vote Democrat

From Ty Andros’ Tedbits newsletter on why to vote Democrat: David Letterman’s top 10 reasons to vote democrat I received this on the internet and sometimes we all need a good laugh…  Enjoy #10. I vote Democrat because I love the fact that I can now marry whatever I want. I’ve decided to marry my German shepherd. #9. I vote Democrat [...]

The odds of winning the Powerball are 1 in 175,223,510. The odds of winning Mega Millions are 1 in 258,890,850. The odds of a disk drive failing in any given month [...]

The Impeachment Issue: Why It Is Unlikely

Impeachment is a term thrown around more frequently as President Obama’s failures, incompetence and duplicities are realized by more people. Impeachment is not something that should be used to kick someone when he is down. Yet that is when it is most likely to be successful. Still, that should not be the criterion as to whether to exercise the prerogative or not. Impeachment Grounds The grounds for impeachment [...]

Has The President Quit?

There are indications that the president may have given up, quit while still on the job. That is, he may no longer be interested in doing the job but merely in playing out the string.  According to Peggy Noonan,Obama appears to have quit. As she describes it: It is weird to have a president who has given up. So many [...]

Obama Would Win A Third Election

This blog, from its beginnings in 2009, recognized Barack Obama’s shortcomings and that his presidency had failed presidency early on. At least failed in terms of what the country considered conventional. What was obvious was not enough to limit him to one term. He easily won re-election. Now, even his supporters appear to be waking up to the realization that he has [...]

Supreme Court Versus Obama Administration

The Supreme Court is on a roll, at President Obama’s expense.  Today a decision regarding religion and ObamaCare came down as 5 – 4 against the so-called signature achievement of Obama. By my count, Obama is something like 0 – 15 in recent cases, many of which have been unanimously decided. President Obama billed himself as a Constitutional professor (he [...]

Congress Needs To Step Up

As regular readers of this site or readers of my book Flimflam Man know, I have little regard for Barack Obama or anything that he stands for. Both this site and the book suggest he is open to impeachment. All that stands in the way is a corrupt Congress, unwilling to jeopardize their comfort in the government trough, living and stealing [...]

The Fireworks Show Is Setting Up

We are likely to be in for some real fireworks during the remainder of Barack Obama’s tenure. Whether that ends as scheduled or prematurely is becoming an issue. Two things are critical for President Obama. One is his popularity and the other is his support from Democrats and the media (although I may be redundant here). Obama’s popularity is falling and doing so [...]

Immigration — Another Scandal and Another Reason For Impeachment

This Administration is a scandal machine. Everything they do is close to the line. Much of what they do is on the wrong side of this line. In my recent book, twenty-six scandals were enumerated. Some  might be considered minor, but all show blatant disrespect and disregard for the Constitution and Rule of Law. Several are serious enough to represent [...]

Voters as Charlie Brown

The true “low information voter,” upon which both political parties depend, falls for this trick every time: H/t to The Casey Report

How A Country Dies

A country dies slowly. Those living during the decline of Rome were likely unaware that anything was happening. The decline took over a couple of hundred years. Anyone living during the decline only saw a small part of what was happening and likely never noticed it as anything other than ordinary. Countries don’t have genetically determined life spans. Nor do they die quickly, [...]
