          Suppose we did it differently?

          Instead of New Year’s resolutions that focus on what we aren’t, what we didn’t, what we shoulda,’ suppose we focused on all the things we already do right?

          We’d find that "positive” really works.

          Look at pup...

          They’re wrong. The critics who say Christmas is nothing but a great day for shopkeepers.

          It is about the presents, it’s true, and the food. It’s how people show their love. But Christmas is also about role models.

          It’s tough to be a good one, but Jesus Christ hit the ball out of the park.

          Race riots in the streets. Open season on cops. Unsecured U.S. borders and foreign policy in tatters.

          It’s the face of America today, carefully crafted by the politicians in office, from the top down, on through city government.

          It all can be traced bac...

          Chuck Hegel is out as Secretary of Defense. Rumor has it he was forced out. Rumor also has it that he disagreed with the president and sided with military opinion coming out of the Pentagon.

          It doesn’t pay to disagree with Obama.

           It’s that time again! Time to get together to give thanks. And as Americans, there’s lots to be thankful for.

          But this year, after the mid-term elections, Ferguson and a forced amnesty, there’s a feeling that something is wrong.

          Where did the old American fighting spirit go, we wonder? The pride in country...

Who's Stupid Now?

"This bill was written in a tortured way to make sure the Congressional Budget Office did not score the mandate as taxes. If CBO scored the mandate as taxes, the bill dies. Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage and basically, call it the stupidity of the American voter or whatever, but basically, that was really, really critical to getting this thing (Obamacare) to pass.” Jonathan Gruber, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, economist

          When he waddled in the door and down the aisle, it was evident he was indeed lame…and a duck. But he didn’t just waddle, he swaggered, head thrust forward. You could tell he was spoiling for a fight.
          Calling him a "Lame Duck” made sense. That’s the correct term, six years in, but I thought it was m...

          Ebola? No known cause. No known cure. Up until last week it couldn’t be spread by a sneeze. This week CDC’s website said that now it can. But the site was taken down the next day.
          Anybody worried?

          The crickets are just plain tired of it.

          Every time the president should say something about a crisis, what does he say? Nothing. Then what does the media do?  Haul out the cricket soundtrack!
