Politics

My views on politics, the spin and finger-pointing that feeds the belly of the beast.

Most Dangerous: Nuclear Weapons, Communism or Fascism?

Iran’s intent to acquire nuclear technology has a lot of people riled up, but I fear they are overlooking a bigger threat. There are many revolutions taking place throughout the European and Arab nations. Italy, Greece, Spain, and France are all under extreme financial distress, probably on the verge of collapse in which new governments will form. Same holds true of Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, and possibly Syria. Russia seems to be slipping back into a dictatorship with the re-election of Vladamir Putin, and with all that’s happening in the world,…

President Woodrow Wilson was a Racist

No matter how hard the liberals and progressives try, the insidious omission of Woodrow Wilson’s racist policies and outspokenness does not make him a great president. No good in the world could ever right the wrong of racism, especially when coming from a President of the United States. And while Woodrow Wilson did succeed in passing many good laws, such as abolishing child labor, passing anti-trust laws, and creating an 8-hour work day for the railroad workers, it will never erase the fact that Woodrow Wilson was a racist. Having…

Obama’s American Jobs Act – Lies and Falsehoods

Falsehood #1 Warren Buffet does not pay less taxes than his secretary like Obama keeps preaching. Here’s what people don’t understand and Obama is misleading those who believe him; Warren Buffet pays Capital Gains tax. His secretary pays Federal Income tax. They are two very different things because they earn their money in two very different ways. A capital gains tax (CGT) is a tax charged on capital gains, the profit realized on the sale of a non-inventory asset that was purchased at a lower price. The most common capital…

US Credit Downgrade – Tea Party’s Fault? Bah!

“If the US Government was a family, they would be making $58,000 a year, they spend $75,000 a year, & are $327,000 in credit card debt. They are currently proposing BIG spending cuts to reduce their spending to $72,000 a year. These are the actual proportions of the federal budget & debt, reduced to a level that we can understand.” – Dave Ramsey The main focus of the Tea Party is to cut Federal Government spending. That’s it. Nothing more, and nothing less. So based on the above quote, why…

Obama – More Windmills to Lessen our Dependence on Foreign Oil

President Obama is just as clueless as former President Bush. Here’s a couple quotes from his most recent town hall style meeting at a windmill factory: … a future where America is less dependent on foreign oil, more reliant on clean energy produced by workers like you.That will happen by reducing oil imports, tapping domestic energy sources and shifting the nation to renewable and less polluting sources of energy, such as wind. Why is this such a hard concept to understand!? Windmills and solar panels produce electricity, not oil. Gasoline,…

How to Solve Illegal Immigration

Let me first begin by saying I’m not discriminating against Mexicans and I am not racist. I believe anyone who is not a criminal should be allowed citizenship into the United States. I do not believe we need military troops patrolling our borders. I do not believe there is any need to remove those who already reside in the country illegally. There’s a better way to solve the problem. To solve this problem, one must ask themselves why is it immigrants are entering the country illegally in the first place?…

Congressional Compromise or Obstruction?

obstruction congress

The word obstruction has replaced the word compromise within Congress, and to some this is infuriating. Why can’t these obstructionist republicans simply pass all the legislation the democrats want? After all, the democrats are the majority so they should get what they want! Why do the republicans have to stop every bill in the House? Why must they filibuster everything in the Senate? For some this is frustrating, but this is the way it’s supposed to work. That’s why we have three branches of government. One branch can shut the…
