A MIND IS A TERRIBLE THING TO WASTE

I’m sure that by now you have probably heard about the six-year-old boy that got suspended from school for kissing his “girlfriend” on the hand. Not only was he suspended—the child was charged was sexual harassment, forcing him to ask his mother what “sex” was. For several decades our school administrators have been obsessed with […]


WHEN DOES LYING BECOME PATHOLOGICAL LYING?

On the heels of Hilliary’s “What difference does it make?” (It being the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi), comes Susan Rice claiming there have been no attacks on US soil by terrorists since Obama took office. As someone once said, “These people would lie when the truth would do better.” It is a toss-up […]


SWEET REVENGE

SIGN ON A CHURCH MARQUEE: IF YOU WANT REVENGE AGAINST A PERSON, PRAY THEY WILL GET EVERYTHING THEY WISH FOR. Another way of putting it is, “Give them lots of rope and they will hang themselves.” Once they have hung themselves, they are said (in nautical terms) to have been “hoist on their own petard”. […]


LOWERING THE EDUCATIONAL BAR

The decline of our school system can be traced directly back to Scotland in the 1920’s when Alexander Sutherland Neill found out about Freudian psychology from a guy named Homer Lane. The men thought that children should be able to study whatever they wanted; whenever they wanted; and as much or as little as they […]


OBAMA’S PANDORA’S BOX

HOMELAND SECURITY POLICE VEHICLE SPOTTED IN COLORADO Reckon there is a medical emergency there? If you click on the picture you can see the logo and “Homeland Security” printed on the fender. I heard Obama say in one of his early campaign speeches prior to being elected president that he intended to have a civilian […]


HEALTH CARE FOR WASHINGTON DUMMIES

THROWING THOR’S HAMMER IN THE HEALTH CARE WORKS Health Care companies have been blindfolded and told to spin gold out of flax in a back room. This has occurred because of mountains of pages of regulations (aprox13,000 in May of 2013) that continue to be piled on top of the unwieldy health care law—so many […]


GIVING AWAY THE COMPANY STORE

View of the Pacific Ocean from the balcony of an Oregon condo. The waters in this picture, along with those on the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico have been targeted by the Obama administration. In our continuing series on water, this move by Obama blows all the other water issues I covered in […]


DRAINING THE SWAMP

In the last post, we discussed how various levels of government are taking over people’s private water supplies. When Nancy Pelosi said she was going to drain the swamp, she did not reveal that what she really meant was that Obama was going to poke a hole in the law George Bush signed to protect the […]


OUT-OF-CONTROL, OVERREACHING EPA, YOUR WATER RIGHTS AND THE DESTRUCTION OF YOUR PROPERTY VALUES

Several internet news sites and blogs like this one have places at the bottom where people respond to the articles. I have noticed a trend among liberal writers to compare presidential and governmental activities by the pound or numbers instead of the content. (i. e. 95% of people have not lost their insurance). One such […]
