  • Waging war on working people

        While President Barack Obama is busy waging economic war against Russia, one should remember that the Russians aren’t the only ones in his sights. He’s also busy waging economic war against working people in the United States.

  • The lessons of Ferguson, Missouri

        It’s too soon to say that peace and quiet dominate the streets of Ferguson, Missouri. But things do appear to have calmed down quite a bit.
        National Guard troops, who had been called in to confront rioting, have left. Even much of the national media is gone.
        Now, it will be up to a grand jury to see what, if any, indictments are issued against the white cop who shot to death a black, unarmed, 16-year-old boy.

        They say ignorance is bliss and I’ve always felt that liberals must be very blissful people. How else can one explain why the believe the things they advocate?
        Maybe I’m being a bit harsh, but they do seem to express a very limited knowledge and awareness of the world around them. Rick Howell gave us an example of this last week in his Liberal Agenda.
        In an effort to prove that Barack Hussein Obama is not a Muslim, he wrote:

  • Looking beyond the mid-terms

        After Labor Day, voters will finally start to pay attention to mid-term elections around the country.
        While there are certainly some high-profile choices, it seems likely that nothing much will change the dynamics in Washington.
        Republicans have hopes of taking control of the U.S. Senate, and most of the seats being defended are Democratic. But Democrats have a shot at taking GOP seats in a few states, most notably Kentucky and Georgia.
