Doesn’t it make you wonder why Barack Obama never once spoke up against this man until it was clear the association would cost him an election? Update:(Bit) From Atlas Shrugs: Nadler is asked how Obama could sit in Reverend Jeremiah Wright’s church for 500 Sundays listing to the anti-semitic, anti-American diatribes “This is not going […]

Much has been said about Obama Ayers, but not nearly enough, in my view. This morning, David Bernstein looks at the subject, and says it well: Obama is an extremely ambitious man. He’s been interested in a national political career for many years. It’s not that surprising that he wouldn’t find Ayers and Wright objectionable […]

What is the the only aspect of the legendary Camelot?   Well that is was a legend.   The Kennedy adminstration, which in the real world is remembered for the Bay of Pigs, the Cuban Missile Crisis and American combat forces in the Republic of Vietnam has been proclaimed by the Kennedy apologists as Camelot.   Yeah and […]

Sorry to see Billy isn’t feeling so well. It’s shameful I’ve not been to see a Coots gig, but our financial situation is getting a bit better, now,so perhaps I’ll get the time and the money this summer to run down there. And Billy; we agree. But let’s not lose sight of the fact that […]
