You may have heard the old saying about figures – figures lie and liars figure. The truth about numbers is, if you know your way around them you can do just about anything with figures except train them to clip… Read full post »
If political conventions hold no other interest for you, you ought to tune in for just one or two nights to see the amazing get-ups these otherwise sober leaders wear when they get out of town and visit the big city.
I am, first of… Read full post »
This morning I had to laugh when I read that Team Obama is celebrating the tone of last night’s pre-prime speakers at the Republican National Convention. The speakers included Virginia’s governor Bob McDonnel, Ohio’s John Kasich, Governor Mary Fallin from Okla… Read full post »
Political correctness is not my strong suit.
I still call the indigenous people of Montana Indians. I see nothing wrong with a river named Squaw Creek, a wind called Chinook or a city called Chicago, which comes from the Algonquain name for “garlic field.” (Snort.)… Read full post »
There is encouraging news this week from booksellers across the nation! It seems that of all the political reading being done in our country, more people are buying RED books – written from a conservative perspective – than are buying the BLUE books which espo… Read full post »
We all know that the Democrat party is fond of referencing its big, wide tent which is inclusive of people of all ethnicities, religious beliefs (except, it would seem, those whose faith prohibits them from paying for abortion or contraceptive drugs,) and cultural back… Read full post »
I’m a big fan of audio books. In my busy world, I feel somehow gratified when I can find ways to leverage the hours I spend driving, dusting, cooking and weeding the flowerbeds into doubly productive activities. This week, I bought and began listening to The Amateur – Barac… Read full post »
I wonder if there are any conspiracy theorists in the Open.Salon community?
I generally don’t buy into these black helicopter theories, but I’ve been becoming more and more unsettled by the Obama administration’s recent penchant for buying high-octane bullets. Per… Read full post »
God bless Judge Robert Simpson.
On Wednesday, Pennsylvania’s Commonweath Judge Robert Simpson refused to grant an injunction keeping Pennsylvania’s new Voter Identification law, (Act 18,) from being used during the upcoming Presidential election. In spite of the us… Read full post »
I’m right in the middle of reading the five books by George R. R. Martin around which the HBO series “Game of Thrones” is made. I’m a big fan of dragons and knights. Of course there’s plenty of blood, sex, and politics thrown into Martin’s boo… Read full post »
If you don’t count my careers as homemaker and caregiver to my elderly mother, I only have three jobs. One of those jobs requires me to get dressed and go to an office five afternoons each week. The other two allow me to schlep into my home office… Read full post »
My mother called it tough love. You know - the “this will hurt me more than it will hurt you” speech. She invoked tough love when a trip to the dentist or the doctor was in my future and needles might be involved. When I had to rake… Read full post »
When I was a girl there were but three channels representing the only three networks available on our black and white television. Each Friday evening our set was tuned to the program known as The Cavalcade of Sports - the Friday night fights. The Gillette Razor company spo… Read full post »
Just when I thought Team Obama couldn’t stoop any lower, they have taken the gold medal in slime-ball-ism.
I learned yesterday that Team Obama along with the Democrat National Committee and the Ohio Democratic Party have sued the State of Ohio saying that state’s… Read full post »
Earlier this week a group of African American religious leaders announced that they were going to war against both Barack Obama and the NAACP for their support of same-sex marriage.
Reverend William Owens, President of the Coalition of African American Pastors, said at… Read full post »
Whatever happened with that whole Tea Party thing?
We occasionally hear bits and pieces of ultra-conservative chatter attributed to the Tea Party faithful but largely, they seem to have melted into the background of American politics. Those of us who support constitutionally… Read full post »
It’s been years since I attended a birthday party for a five-year-old so I don’t know. Do they still play “Pin the Tail on the Donkey” at such affairs?
When I was a little girl back in the middle part of the last century, re-affixing… Read full post »
The mantle of greatness is not one of those “one size fits most” garments. As a matter of fact, throughout history we see examples of emperors and boy kings who found themselves with enormous power before they developed the maturity to wield that power well. (There were als… Read full post »
There are so many polls these days, one barely knows which one to turn to. Not only do all news organizations do their own polling, but so do political parties, PACs and universities.
I do know a little about how the size and attributes of… Read full post »
The President tells us this week that, if you came up with an idea for a new business, invested your life’s savings and all your energies into it, worked seven days a week for years, developed ulcers putting together enough money to make payrolls, and nurtured that business throu… Read full post »
I’ve come to believe that Mitt Romney’s best kept Campaign tool exists in the person of former New Hampshire Governor and Bush Chief of Staff, John Sununu.
Lately Sununu has been a guest on any number of news programs. This is especially useful since he is… Read full post »
I’ve come to believe that the administration of Barack Obama is imploding under the weight of his own arrogance.
From the beginning, I’ve seen him as a man who will use each and every millimeter of wiggle room he can find in order to get… Read full post »
Okay. We've had enough! It’s time for action. Let’s raise taxes on those nasty capitalist pigs that make over $250,000 a year. They’re rich. They can afford it. We can raise an extra $85 billion a year just by making them pay their fai/… Read full post »
As the first – and hopefully the last – Barack Obama term lingers on, I’m struck by the number of broken promises and outright lies made by this administration that the American public is expected to disregard. If you divide the number of promises kept by the… Read full post »
Being mysterious can mean a lot of work. Take the incumbent President, for example.
