We're All Frogs and The Water is Starting to Boil
This article is a good read and probably helps everyone realize what is going on around them. Our media is fixated on reporting ridiculous crimes while the government continues to curtail our freedoms unmolested. http://www.thedailysheeple.com/almost-everything-is-a-crime-in-america-now-14… Wake up my friends. We are losing our freedoms and totalitarianism is on the rise. Posted...
You Have No Idea What I'm Doing...Do You?
Yet again, Dilbert, our arbiter of truth, uncovers another fact of Corporate America. Jobs have become so unfocused and directionless that managers rarely understand what employees are doing on a daily basis. Wondering in the weeds between micro-managing and mis-managing, America’s corporate culture is waiting for those rare individuals who can rise above the title of manager and become...

TSA chief: New pat-downs necessary; policies stay put http://www.usatoday.com/travel/news/2010-11-17-tsa-pat-downs_N.htm?csp=34news Today on Capitol Hill Americans watched the demise of the American Dream with the cameras rolling. Our 4th Amendment right is no longer under attack, it’s simply dead. In the name of security, while pandering to the fears instilled in us by our government,...
We, The People, Are Coming Back
Just one in four Americans say things are going well in the country today, according to a CNN poll. http://www.cnn.com/2010/POLITICS/11/01/poll.election/index.html?eref=rss_topstories Oppertunity was our namesake. America has always embodied the idea that people could find and enjoy the opportunities for happiness and success. The first step in the realization of these opportunities is...

They're Slip, Sliding Every Which Way
Newsweek recently posted an article entitled, “Musical Chairs”. Full Article: http://www.newsweek.com/2010/10/25/what-the-new-dc-power-structure-might-look-like.html I prefer to look at it as slipping and sliding. Politicians are moving ever so slightly into the direction that the media would like them to. If the media wants government to “mainstream” both parties...

Which way did they go George?
Where are Bush, Cheney as election nears? http://www.cnn.com/2010/POLITICS/10/22/bush.cheney.campaign.trail/index.html?… Yet another point and opportunity missed by the media. They are still dwelling in the past while polls show that a majority of Americans are moving forward. The chaotic atmosphere of America politics is all the evidence I need to see that we are searching for a better way....

Why Israel Should Declare Itself a Nuclear Power
http://www.newsweek.com/2010/10/20/why-israel-should-declare-itself-a-nuclear… Interesting reading. Although from an American perspective the article only hints at the reasons why we should not be involved to begin with. The Israeli struggle is not our struggle. At home we have enough interests to keep our government busy. Prying in foreign sovereign business should not be a concern of...
Wait a Minute Here
I thought it was time to start over. Tumblr is turning into a lame duck and Posterous is stepping up it’s game. Besides, I need more visibility if I am to start a place for my political and sometimes whimsical ramblings. Speaking of which.

Boehner Outlines Changes if G.O.P. Takes House
Inspired by the resent NY Times article by the same name, I decided to write this post to declare how excited I am by the latest rounds of comments and sentiments coming from Republican leaders. It remains to be seen if they will stick to their guns after returning to the majority or if they will fold like a reed in the wind the same way Obama did. From the article: “Mr. Boehner placed...

Stop Touching Your Poop-Shoot
The history of mankind is riddled with examples of achievement and innovation through necessity. Our ability to recognize a problem and, through innovation and invention, we improve the condition of our species. Whether in war or peacetime, we explore, colonize, and cultivate; which in turn improves our society, our intellect, and our knowledge. Within the last decade our primary focus has been...
