“Change”

It’s coming hard and fast for BO. From White House Dossier, With all the nonsense that came out of the White House about the sequester, it could be that President Obama’s credibility has taken a serious hit. Perhaps it’s not just the Republicans who are going to get blamed here. Because when Saturday Night Live …

“Fair and balanced approach”

That’s what Preezy wanted and he got it. While the private sector has suffered greatly under this administration with tax hikes, draconian regs, rising gas prices and food prices, federal workers seem to have been exempt. DC is awash in money, while the states and local governments have had to cut back. Federal workers will …

Our Vindictive President

BO is promising to bring the pain to average Americans if he doesn’t get his way. His minions are out and about making threats to the general public, using his bully pulpit to terrorize.

the ‘Second Coming’….

Not to worry, you won’t be assailed at the newstand with this ridiculous pronouncement. It looks as if the slobbering love affair of the media isn’t over yet. If the “Second Coming” works out as well as the first 4 years, we will have a 20 trillion dollar deficit by 2017 according to the GAO …

Zero tolerance

Being a Democrat is hard. There is nothing easy about racing from one outrage to another in the constant search for a Utopia that does not nor will ever exist. Shrieking and wringing their hands in despair over our so called “culture of violence”, they demand zero tolerance. So, we end up with six year …
