How arrogant is it that men who earn, inherit, or steal a lot of money are entitled to a trophy wife?

Baseball needs to wake up. Have people lost interest in our beloved game and national pastime? Has it become boring? One thing is for sure; most dads can’t afford to take their kids to a game, unless it’s a very special occasion. And when they do, they don’t want to be… Read full post »

Let Sellers Pay The Sales Tax

Here’s a novel way to help the economy get back on track. Let’s reverse the way we pay sales taxes. Make the seller pay the taxes instead of the buyer.

 Let the oil companies pay the taxes on all the gasoline they sell – they can afford it. Let… Read full post »

The Federal-Aid Highway Act of 1956, supported by President Eisenhower, was based largely on civilian needs: support for economic development, improved highway safety, traffic congestion relief, reduction of motor vehicle-related lawsuits, as well as a potential neces… Read full post »

 

 

 Why The U.S. Won’t Leave Afghanistan

SELL U.S. LAND TO ISRAEL

What to help the US cut the federal budget and reduce its deficit, ease tension in the Middle East, save Israel from destruction, give the Palestinians a homeland, and let the Arabs go back to fighting with each other and the Iranians – all in one easy corporate maneuver?

No-Party System

A Government of the People, by the People, and for the People

I was born an all-American farm boy, raised in rural Connecticut during the end of World War II. I grew up as a patriotic lad during the Truman and Eisenhower eras, slightly too young to vote… Read full post »
