Branding Obamanomics 101

I snagged this little ditty from a FB acquaintance named Lyn Morales. It has the look and feel of a viral urban legend, but it is well worth a moment's ponder. Thanks Lyn... N ECONOMICS PROFESSOR at a local college made a statement that he had never failed a single student before, but had once failed an entire class. That class had insisted that Obama's socialism worked and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich, a great equalizer. The professor then said, "OK, we will have an experiment in this class on Obama's plan". All...

Note From Congressman Frank Wolf

This letter arrived today from esteemed Congressman Frank Wolf (R-VA-10th District). We very much appreciate his continued advocacy for local safety issues, human rights around the globe, as well as his repeated efforts to inspire the current administration to remember its promise for transparent government, promised by the candidate, and often touted by the new president with little or no change from the business as usual model Americans have come to loathe from both parties. The congressman's report: Dear Friends, ongress is deep into the appropriations season. The House has passed seven of the 12 FY 2010 spending bills, with five...

OES THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA need a drastic realignment of ideas and physical framework to deter a second American Revolution or Civil War and provide direction for the coming age where complexity is the norm?

Money...


The Charlatan's Tent

Y FAVORITE LINE from the charlatan's tent so far this year has tumbled out of the mouth from Press Secretary Robert Gibbs. When confronted with the fact that Mister President has not done a single thing he promised during the campaign and is instead spending money as if there is no tomorrow while gutting the potential of people by raising taxes, Gibbs replied, “It’s not like you weren’t told. McCain’s campaign said we were going to be doing this right from the start.” Methinks Gibbs won't last out this year, perhaps not even six months. He's a giggling goofball. Surely...


Detroit And The Last American Value

UST IN CASE you haven't been paying close attention to the news of the day, Detroit City, long on the frail side, is failing and failing fast. The key questions are centered, or at least, should center on the reasons of why the American automobile industry, once the paragon of manly strength echoing the pervasiveness of ingenuity, hard work, and the American Way, is failing. Even if you are sympathetic to this latest charade of tycoon muskateers looking for a bailout for their own house of cards, and want to believe in your hearts of hearts that everything is on...
