obama and the List


We’ve seen President Barack Obama in action for a bit more than six months.

Now you see what I meant by “Obamacracy”.

What we can say with confidence, now that we have the evidence of his actions, is that had he based his campaign platform on the following actions that summarize his administration to day, Obama would not only have lost the election, he would have received fewer votes than the hapless Thomas Dewey in the 1948 General Election.

Obama Administration Highlights – First Six Months:

(a) transforming the U.S. economy by massive federal government intervention;

(b) taking an owner’s stake in the automobile industry;

(c) transforming the rules of America’s energy economy; and,

(d) instituting a (socialized) national health-care system.

Never mind the, now waning, financial crisis debacle meltdown because that was not initiated on his watch.

It doesn’t matter that Dewey was so far ahead of Truman that George Gallop stopped polling people in October. Dewey just quit campaigning while Truman ran the finest campaign in American history. Obama would still have lost.

Just for fun I will point out that had Obama played his hand early on, we might have ended up with McCain and Palin. But, McCain would probably have died within the first half his first term and we would have then been stuck with Sarah Palin – and, she is just a quitter.

I keep looking at Al Gore. He has enough business acumen to earn compensated Board seats for mighty corporations. And, he was part of a prior administration that handled foreign policy and economic balance with a kind of flair. And, that team had a notion of what a real Healthcare policy should look like.

Peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

sarah palin and a Quickie


A quick note here as I ponder the future of the Republican party in this country.

Sarah Palin has something of a role in-and-amongst all of this.

Her recent press conference recently at her home in Wasilla, Alaska, after her abrupt announcement she will be leaving the Governors office fifteen months early has shed no light on too many questions whatsoever. In fact, Americans now know less than before. Her “speech” has been called (okay – it will, ultimately, be referred to as) one of the worst in recent political history.

Worse, she is now a quitter. Even if she has some muddy idea this means she will have time to prepare to run for the Presidency in 2012 (coincidentally about the time the world is going to end).

palin-resignation-coverageIn any event, instead of explaining herself, she presented a chain of mangled and dangling non-sequitur metaphors and empty platitudes. She might just as well have recited a poem or sung a song; the impact would have been the very same. Given current events, she could have kept silent and simply performed a moonwalk à la Michael Jackson – ironically and sadly, this would have been more effective than her actual speech (and, it might make her seem hip because everyone is currently on the MJ bandwagon).

This isn’t looking very good for the Republicans. It’s downright grim.

If I were a Democrat, I might be pleased. But, no, I am only a patriot that is generally concerned. We might actually be facing a prolonged tour of duty with the “Obamacrats”.

More later. This might even be important, in the general scheme of things.

Peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

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.
