obama is playing world poker with the race card


I’m reasonably convinced Barack Obama is a lousy businessman. I doubt he’s ever written a business plan, or had to submit a budget, let alone manage and be held accountable for one. but, he’s proven to be an able politician. and, I’m certain he’s looking for a job amidst the shenanigans realized through the United Nations. if you read this blog consistently, that’s not new information.

saying things like that requires qualification. I always have an opinion. and, I have a great deal of experience. Barack Obama does not have any real experience, other than aligning himself to become President as a stepping-stone for something else, sinister, or otherwise. and, I’ll throw out the controversial ideal of the “race card”. people seem to want to focus on the fact that Obama is black. somehow his being black was going to help ignite “change” in this country. that’s oversimplifying things, here. but, I have you nodding (caught you), so let’s keep moving.

there is a dude here in Georgia named Herman Cain. he is an accomplished and well-spoken businessman that happens to be black. as it turns out, he does not like Obama. he does like, appreciate, and promote the free market, it’s potential, and credibility. Cain is like Newt Gingrich in many ways. this includes they both talk about running for President, themselves. although I’ll remind you that Gingrich isn’t black, like Cain. but, they are both great students of history, and capable of drawing astonishing parallels with current events that help them make excellent points for us to focus on as a nation. as I’ve mentioned in this post recently with history is always in the making but understanding makes it meaningful, Obama only came to the United States in time to attend college (kind of like a sleeper agent for a hostile organization). that means he missed growing up here and may be oblivious to a great many “credibility markers” (I’ve made that term up, what do you think of it?) that include perspective.

so… I’d likely support Herman Cain if and when he runs for President. I hope your learning this does not hurt his chances! Cain understands business, best practices, the free market, economics in general, and appears to have a limited agenda outside of being a genuine public servant (which history teaches us is what Thomas Jefferson and the Founding Fathers had in mind when it came to the House and then the Senate). with those credentials in mind, he is completely opposite to Obama (aside from being black). and, the best part is that if he ascended to the White House he would virtually eliminate any further discussion around the race card.

…oh, I dropped Gingrich into this post mostly for the sake of comparison and contrast. that’s another credibility marker. like history, if you can’t cite relevant examples for reasonable application, it shouldn’t count. that’s part of being both Jeffersonian and heterodox.

by the way… it’s late, but my Google (and Larry Page) infomercial expose should makes it’s appearance later this week. next week at the latest.

peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

congress as a fringe Group?


Last week we started a fire storm discussing Barack Obama and his unfortunate involvement tanglements with “fringe groups”.

How are those defined, exactly?

Possibly modern-day Populists?

But certainly self-focused insiders at the treasury, and on Wall Street. Arguably, the leadership at the heart of the banking community itself.

Let’s use, as a worthy example (just to haul-off in search of some credibility) Obama’s forlorn and degenerating feint efforts around health care reform, and how that’s faring in Congress (there’s a Moose in the House).

I’m not convinced the Republicans are the problem. They are a problem. It’s the House, as a body, that is the problem because their own desires are not aligned with constituents.

Ironically, this makes the House a fringe-group.

I’m ready to take a LOT of heat for making that statement.

Peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

Faith + Evidence = Integrity


Truth and knowledge must begin with questions. Lack of qualified discernment creates hypocrisy and ignorance.

So… What is faith?

Perhaps it is the confident assurance that what we hope for is going to happen /1.

What about evidence? Does faith require proof for an ultimate truth?

It occurs to me that asking the hard questions takes more courage than yielding to the common belief. I am more comfortable when faith meets truth. And, it is the search for this credibility factor that generates my own sense of integrity.

Peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

1/ Websters says this is an option…

belief in God or in the doctrines or teachings of religion: the firm faith of the Pilgrims; a system of religious belief: the Christian faith; the Jewish faith; and, Christian Theology. the trust in God and in His promises as made through Christ and the Scriptures by which humans are justified or saved.

What’s All This About?

"What am I looking at?", you might wonder.

Lots of stuff.

Meanwhile, here, I discuss events, people and things in our world - and, my (hardly simplistic, albeit inarticulate) views around them.

You'll also learn things about, well, things, like people you need to know about, and information about companies you can't find anywhere else.

So, while I harangue the public in my not so gentle way, you will discover that I am fascinated by all things arcane, curious about those whom appear religious, love music, dabble in politics, loathe the media, value education, still think I am an athlete, and might offer a recipe.

All the while, striving mightily, and daily, to remain a prudent and optimistic gentleman - and, authentic.
