Stop Inflation Now!

Alan Partis | January 24, 2010

Inflation.  That word is one that strikes fear in the hearts of many by its mere mention.  It is axiomatic that the prevailing economic condition, whether good or bad, has a big impact on all our lives and influences everything from where we go for vacations (if we go anywhere at all), how we shop, how we vote, and, for many, even how well we sleep.  It was not so many years ago that our lives were very negatively impacted by inflation rates that topped 10%.  Even inflation rates above 5% have proven to be very disruptive. 

Manhood Missing in Denmark

Perhaps Denmark’s definition of manhood differs from my own, but this guy must surely fail to meet any threshold.

Rules Have Replaced Thinking

Alan Partis | June 27, 2009

Many people have completely abdicated their right to think. Instead, they ask for more and more rules to govern their lives, and the lives of others who they do not trust. The lack of trust (and trustworthy folks) in our society results in the application of more laws thus further degrading the very freedom we proclaim to be protecting.

Name One

Alan Partis | June 10, 2009

Mr. President, if you’re going to make claims about something highly doubtful, please be man enough to provide specific examples that back up your position.

I Want Obama to Fail

Alan Partis | June 9, 2009

Yes, I do want Obama to fail to implement his plans and agenda.

This Time I Mean It!

Alan Partis | June 9, 2009

President Obama has no credibility. He’s proved, on many occasions, that he’s willing to lie to the public and exaggerate his claims so as to manipulate an outcome that he desires. When my child does that, she gets grounded.

Obama Thinks Latinos are Stupid

Alan Partis | May 27, 2009
