End of an Error…

…and the start of correcting those errors.  President Obama, having taken the oath of office minutes ago, begins the herculean task of giving this country an enema. Flushing out the policies, wars and programs that have plugged up this country to the point we’re about to explode.   In doing so we wave goodbye to…

Politics as Usual

With the election only 30+ days ago, and the IL senate seat vacant, Gov. Rod Blagojevich, decides the best way to fill the seat is to the higest bidder. I have no doubt these things occur all the time, for all kinds of vacancies, be they political or in an office; however this is utterly despicable….

The Right Direction

Relief. The election’s over, and Obama has won.  I’m sitting here, completely and utterly exhausted, wracked with nerves all day, about whether the rest of the country would see this election as I do. From Maine to California, from Florida to Minnesota voters did agree. And race didn’t matter. When young adults are being fed…

The Countdown Begins

In 36 hours or so, we’ll have a new President. Or President-elect if you want to be technical. After one of the longest campaigns in memory, I’m ready for it to be over. I’m exhausted from talking heads, maps, debates, mud, name calling, racism, et al. Enough. And yet, as tired as I am, I…

7th Inning Stretch

“That guy.”

In the first debate, pundits said, since it was on foreign policy, it was in McCain’s favor. They were wrong. For the second debate, it was a townhall meeting, a Mccain specialty, he’ll do well. Again they were wrong. Now before everyone thinks I’m not going to critisize Obama, I will. I thought he could…

The Keating 5-About Damn Time

As an AZ resident since 1981, I’ve been around to see Mccain’s rise to the Senate, and remember all too well his association with Charles Keating. Why, I’ve wondered, as the twin towers of finance were brought down by wall street terrorists, hasn’t Obama brought this up? This would once and for all put to…
