Obama Administration: These things that are now "torture"

With the discloser of the memos it has become very obvious that our definition of torture has softened a bit. I read through the events and laughed at times. I know it was not nice… but a caterpillar.. come on. I was thinking that would terrorize my daughter (she too thinks insects are out toContinue reading “Obama Administration: These things that are now "torture"”

Lying through statistics.. Mexican gun trade

USA today: “Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives records show 90% of the weapons recovered and traced originate from a growing number of sources spanning from the Northwest to New England.” and this “2,000 weapons a day” California Sen. Dianne Feinstein: “It is unacceptable to have 90 percent of the guns that are pickedContinue reading “Lying through statistics.. Mexican gun trade”

Political correctness gone amuck

Chia Pet Creator ‘Shocked’ After Walgreens Pulls Obama Model From Shelves Come on. I would expect this to be a hot seller to his supporters. Is an Obama bobble head racist? What about the new Pepsi can? Should those be banned? I know this is “decisions made by a public company” not the government. ButContinue reading “Political correctness gone amuck”

Just when you thought it couldn’t get worse…

I think we were all coming to grips with the “Socialist” Obama. Washington is now running the banks, running the auto companies, dictating salaries and planning to move into other sectors should the need arise. Some were convinced that these actions were necessary to stabilize the economy. Others believe that the economy is a convenienceContinue reading “Just when you thought it couldn’t get worse…”

"Barack Obama is the smartest President"?

Have you heard it before? We have all heard how “dumb” George Bush is/was. I think it is about time to reveal that there is a big difference between book-smart and street-smart; Obama being the former and in no way the latter. The media being much of the former as well, has little to noContinue reading “"Barack Obama is the smartest President"?”

Well played, Mr. Obama

Many is the media are “confused” by the seeming contradictions in the ever expanding spending coming from Washington and the statements about the desire to “balance the budget”. Since most of them are devoid of 5th grade math skills they can’t make the connections that most of the rest of us can make…”this just doesContinue reading “Well played, Mr. Obama”

Is Obama a muppet or the puppet master?

Those that know me well, know that, during the election, I had the opinion that Obama was a muppet. May argued he was left wing, and that may be true. Other argues that he was more center-left. Though I believed that he was likely far more left then his words, what he said and whatContinue reading “Is Obama a muppet or the puppet master?”

The sublety of bias… Senator Gregg edition

It is sometimes tough to recognize bias. Especially, when it is the terms of “exclusion”. Simply, leaving out information that might change your view on the situation. The recent situation of Senator Gregg’s removing himself from cabinet consideration is a key example. The media is trying to spin the message as a “partisan Republican, unwillingContinue reading “The sublety of bias… Senator Gregg edition”

Does the media know what Bipartisan means?

It would seem from all of the press coverage of the “stimulus” bill that the term bipartisan is a bit confused. Based on a quick review on dictionary.com, I found that it means “representing, characterized by, or including members from two parties or factions”… odd. Based on the coverage of the vote it would seemContinue reading “Does the media know what Bipartisan means?”
