This Too Shall Pass

These are the times that try men’s souls.

Flawed Thinking

| March 24, 2010

A popular refrain from Obamites is that the Republicans are just the party of "no" and didn’t participate in the process of crafting this obamination of a health care plan.  As a result of this, "they" say, it was all up to the Democrats to craft the whole thing.  So, "they" conclude, the people who don’t like obamacare, should blame the Republicans.

Stop Inflation Now!

| 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.

Nor is this […]

Rules Have Replaced Thinking

| 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

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.

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