Dumbo is Delusional.  Alas too many cocaine parties and not enough sober study.  Proof that the Obama administration is demented.  Barack Obama had called Fox News destructive, but his administration has lauded the clowns Keith Olbermann and Rachel Maddow of MSNBC.  You go figure.   Nice Deb has all the story. More  Delusional,  Dean Esmay l: […]

The candidate was outraged – just outraged – at the country’s sorry fiscal state. “We have managed to acquire $13 trillion of debt on our balance sheet,” he fumed to a roomful of voters. “In my view, we have nothing to show for it.” And that was a Democrat, Sen. Michael Bennet of Colorado, who […]

Yesterday on CBS Sunday Morning, President Barack Obama was being interviewed by Harry Smith.  This seems to be this President’s primary function.  I can just see his job description now–Item 1, must interview with the media incessantly.  Never mind running the country.  We’ll leave that to Pelosi and Reid.  And, who can blame him?  It’s more […]

For whom the bill tolls, Megan McArdle,  Atlantic: The Health Care Reform Already Costs More Than We Thought It Would There’s been a spate of bad news recently about the health care bill.

Does this sound like a civilian criminal?

I Won blind to Tea Party grievances, Brit Hume, Fox News: The president says the Tea Partiers ought to thank him because many if not most of them got a tax break courtesy of his stimulus package. In his condescension, the president seems not to grasp that the Tea Partiers see the mountains of debt […]

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 […]

2010-imageGoodbye 2009!  Hello 2010!

Nearly everyone I talk to expresses relief at the end of 2009.  It would be a good year to forget, that is, if we didn’t have to deal with the consequences of decisions and actions that will reverberate throughout the rest of our lives.

But it’s a new year now, so no doom and gloom.  I’ll leave that to our President, and let me point out that he’s good at it!  I’m not one to make resolutions, but there are several that I’ve made this year:

  • Read more
  • Write more
  • Laugh more
  • […]

The record of the Democrats since attaining office has not been good, at least from the perspective of the average American. Let’s look at their key agenda points: Global Warming, as such has long been seen as a lie. That lie was unarguably exposed as such the other day. We’re told that the bailout spending […]
