I notice that the most recent gamble of our tax money involves the Chevy Volt… Keep in mind, this is the president who told us that the GM and Chrysler bailouts were an unvarnished success. What a lot of people don’t seem to understand is that this monstrosity of General Motors is at the center […]

OK, I know that by now a lot of you either saw or read though this speech of Obama’s, and so it’s old news. But I’ve seen nobody rip through this thing point by point. I can understand why… with my work and family schedule it took me most of a day to get this […]
