The Secretive White House keeps rolling along

Not much fanfare about the celebration to be held at the White House this evening. But, I am sure there will be hundreds in attendance in spite of the sequester cuts. In the meantime 6th graders are out front protesting not being able to tour “the People’s House”.“This house is our house.” The President has …

Professional segregationists

A big shout out to federal judge A. Wallace Tashima of the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. He has ruled that an AZ law, House Bill 2281, is constitutional. The law would prevent Az school districts and charter schools from; 1. Promoting the overthrow of the United States government. 2. Promoting resentment …

Friday Bits and Pieces

Mo is not “surprised” by her notoriety. “Supporting the arts”? That didn’t fit into her lifestyle until she got her own taxpayer ATM. Mrs. Obama acknowledged that she and President Barack Obama have added appeal, and perhaps sometimes  are subject to extra scrutiny, because they are the first black family in the White House but …

Friday’s Bits and Pieces

Nightmare on Sequester Street… how to beat down the American people and make them feel defeated to achieve a political win. Destroying confidence in the people, filling them with despair, terrifying the sick and elderly, dumbing down of America to win political points, what an ignorant way of governing.

Superficial and whiny

“We cannot mistake absolutism for principle, or substitute spectacle for politics, or treat name-calling as reasoned debate,” Obama said from the Capitol steps on inauguration Monday. Did his supporters listen to his speech or even hear what he said? The left’s intolerance raises its ugly head again. Accusations of “racism”, “hostage taking”, “suicide bombers”, are …

A Big Let Down….

What were they thinking…. or not? The news is not good for a majority of minority students in the largest public school district in OH. Their grades were changed. 5300 students had their grades changed from ‘fail’ to ‘passing’. To get more funds than they were entitled to, the school administrators marked kids who were heavy …

Who knew….

Never, not ever, did I think this blog would quote Pravda but, an article caught my eye and it was a very sobering thoughtful  piece. So it is our politicians saying that our society is full of incapable adolescents who can never be trusted? Then, please explain how we can trust them or the police, …

What caught my eye…

Well, we’ve all made it through another Apocalypse. Looks like we’re not going to be let off the hook that easily. Doomsday preppers who’ve gone underground can come out now. All those people in Turkey and China heading to the magical mountain to escape can go home. The history channel can stop running all those …

What you might not have heard about…

I had promised myself not to post another thing about the school shootings in CT  but,  when horrible things happen to good people I look for other things to renew my faith in mankind. From Toronto, to Russia, Brazil to Scotland and Pakistan the good people of the world, and all over the US, held …
