I have come to a conclusion. The federal government, especially under the Obama administration, does not like success. This is even more so if the success comes from the states, instead of the massive bureaucracy that makes up the federal government. This is never more true than the case of the Louisiana school voucher program. I have written earlier this year about this program, here and here. By all accounts, it has been an → Read More
Let me provide a simple translation of the title of this post. It means President Obama is going back to full campaign mode. It is a mode he rarely leaves, but was forced out of when it became apparent that the ObamaCare website was a complete disaster. Let’s see, I believe that was on October 1, during the celebrated roll out of ObamaCare and its heralded website. It didn’t take long for most Americans → Read More
Maybe David Plouffe was talking about a different group of Americans when he made this outrageous statement on ABC’s This Week. His version of reality is far removed from the version I am seeing unfold as ObamaCare shows itself for what it really is.
Politico – Former Senior White House Adviser David Plouffe on Sunday said he believes President Barack Obama’s “numbers will recover” and that people “trust this president.”

I came across a story last week that caught my eye, but not enough to post about it. It was about the protests that have been organized against one of America’s corporate giants. The protests were supposed to be workers protesting for more worker’s rights at Wal-Mart. I mean, who doesn’t support that? It seems a lot of people love to hate them some Wal-Mart. They are an easy target, since they are usually → Read More
Let me start this post by openly declaring how much of a shopper I am not. I don’t mind going to the store and picking up a few items, if I know what I am going after, but just browsing around drives me out of my mind. I also dislike the crowding and attitude that seems to go with so many of the sales you see on Black Friday. I supposed I could blame → Read More
This is me, dragging myself back to the well-worn path that is Obamacare. It seems this train wreck is going to be in the news forever. Since it is more than a little important, I need to write about what is going on. Obamacare is headed back to the Supreme Court, this time in the form of a challenge to the mandate handed down by the Obama administration that health insurance plans have to → Read More
This is off the beaten path of Obamacare, but I believe it is just as important to the future of America. The basic foundation on which America was established is personal liberty and freedom. By natural extension, that foundation involves the rights of the individual states to do as they see fit, with minimal intervention from the federal government. At every turn, we have seen that intervention turn from minimal to intrusive. So much → Read More
I can not express how true I believe Bill Whittle’s latest Afterburner video is. He seems to have an uncanny knack for cutting right to the crux of an issue. A simple question is all he asks. Are the Democrats, from President Obama on down, really so naive that they believe Obamacare will really work? Even if they are, he points out that the hammer of reality will bring them out of the clouds → Read More
News coming out of Geneva and Washington, D.C. tells us of a major breakthrough regarding Iran’s nuclear program. According to what we are being told by the Obama administration and the Iranians, a deal has been reached to make sure Iran’s nuclear program is for peaceful purposes only. As can be expected, the Obama administration is touting the agreement, saying it cuts off the most likely paths Iran would take, if it wanted to → Read More
Conservative donors in America, be wary. Remember how the IRS targeted conservative groups asking for tax exempt status? They did so by requiring information from these groups that was not pertinent to the status they requested. Specifically, they asked for a list of who was donating money to the organization. The groups were not required by law to submit such information, but that didn’t keep the IRS from asking. The media attention over this → Read More
Let’s start with an acknowledgement of sorts. I suspect many people who may read this post will find no new information contained therein. Anyone who has paid attention already knows how the Obama administration operates. This should serve as a reminder to all who would dare criticize Obama or any action his administration may take. Watch your back because the Sandman may be on his way to your nightmares.
It’s not a big secret → Read More
We should have known this was coming. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has warned he would do something along these lines. He has proven, in this instance, at least, that he can be trusted to do what he said he would do. In an unprecedented move, Harry Reid has changed the rules of the Senate and stripped away some of the power of the minority party to make its voice heard in that esteemed, → Read More
