Tonight
Art will be a featured guest at the Des Moines Register’s web site tonight during the President’s speech in an online chat.  You can join us at this link starting at 7:45 PM.

Well, friends, tonight could well be one of the most anticipated State Of The Union Addresses in many years.  In a period of disappointment following the grand illusion of hope put forth by the President and Congressional Democrats, tonight’s speech may well a pivotal driver to the 2010 Congressional Elections.

Health Care

Look for President Obama to sound confident and yet cautious on this topic.  He may well fire barbs at the Republicans in Congress, but the fact is that House and Senate Democrats had the ability to make this happen months ago if they had the intestinal fortitude to put personal pride, personal gain and “pet ideas” aside and come to a consensus on what most of us would agree is a critical issue in America.  But the President won’t point any of that out.

The Economy

There will be more demands to poor money into the hands of businesses and citizens… unfortunately it will likely be more of the same non-stimulating “stimulus” money, feeding […]

As a business owner, tax payer and elected official, I freely admit that I am VERY skeptical when the government warns me about anything. Government typically causes more problems than they solve, and it’s in their own best interests (power, taxes, etc) to have a crisis du jour and keep people alarmed and afraid. Fearful […]

The use of the death of Ted Kennedy in support of the Democrats and their socialist-style takeover of our healthcare system has been widely noted and decried. It’s crass, at least. Cynical, as well. But it shows us just how desperate the Democrats are to push this monster through and onto the financial shoulders of […]
