Urgent Press Release

Every American President inherits the difficulties of the previous administration. In the past they have dealt with them and moved on. In 2009  we elected an ultra-left President who has surrounded himself with the same kind of people. His  administration does not listen to words of wisdom, and has no use for American traditions. In their effort to Introduce change they have, from their very first day in office, blamed all of their difficulties on the Bush-Cheney-Rumsfeld troika. They accept no responsibility for their own actions and monumental mistakes. It would be laughable if not so blindly arrogant.

The man we elected as a Liberal Democrat turned out to be an Ultra-Liberal Extremist who has given birth to programs intended to make our government larger and more powerful.  He has gone too far left - too fast. Today I had a real chuckle. The hapless Robert Gibbs, President Obama's over-burdened Press Secretary, after seeing that the Republican Scott Brown was winning over the Democrat in Massachusetts actually said:

"We are not surprised. People are unhappy out there and the unrest started before our administration began." 

He must have been kidding. Right?

Kay . . . It's about time Obama stopped crying about Bush and Cheney. The real problem is what he has done with their mess. He has blown his opportunity to fix and rebuild big time. Bush started the stimulus stuff and he was wrong. There is a perfectly reasonable bankrupcy proceedure and he should have allowed failure. Two, Bush is the one who tried to convince everybody that certain companies were too big to fail. Nonsense. But what does Obama do about it. He defies 200 years of capitalism, tradition, and the constitutional foundation. He stimulates every company in trouble. To the tune of TRILLIONS of dollars - borrowed from the future. Then, making the fiscal problems even worse, he SPENDS and SPENDS like there will be no tomorrow. Then he has the audacity to say that "BUSH MADE ME DO IT!" I, for one, have finally lost patience. I thought he was smart and a good speaker and much less of a socialist-communist than he has proven to be.

Greybeard . . . Try An Odd Work In Process. Remember, management definitely doesn't stand behind it.

We all know that there are serious problems with ou American political system. The federal government and national media have been telling us that we continue to lead the world in just about everything. Unfortunately, we do not. Measuring our status against other nations is difficult as it entails comparison of different attributes and characteristics. Comparisons are, at best, crude.  Surely, if we look, it's clear that America is no longer dominant among the world's communities. 

For decades following the 1929 economic depression, America has enriched foreign industries at the expense of our own. We have subsidized foreign military powers while allowing the depletion of our own. We've defended other nations borders while, at the same time, not defended our own. We've spent trillions of dollars to subsidize unworthy governments, and let our own infrastructure to fall into disrepair. 

The use of our economic power as a diplomatic tool may have been the correct thing to d…

Cruel and Thoughtless . . .

A disheartening situation has hit our family. A cousin, one that we don't know very well, has reached 93 years of age. Most of the Chapman family made it to the mid 80's, but Mary Lou Chapman has managed a few years more. And, she's not gone yet. Mary was unmarried her entire life. She grew up in a good home, was well educated, has always hd a good job, and has enjoyed pretty good health - until just a few years ago. While she is still very much alive, I sometimes speak in the past tense as if she had already died. Mary is either confused or in her own little world now. She began losing some of her sparkle a few years ago. At first it was mild memory loss, and then mild hearing loss, and then drifting in her speech as she lost track of what she wanted to say. Her Doctor said it was a mild dementia coming on with old age, and nothing to worry about yet. A few month's passed by before she began to have problems driving herself to the market and appointments and so forth,…

The Reluctant Liberal

I've a grandson that has been exposed to political liberalism all his life. In it's modern version the words "left wing" means the liberal side of politics, and "right wing" describes the more conservative side. In our two party system each term may be used to describe a member of either party. Believe it or not, there are a few conservative Democrats.
Today, the Democratic Party has become  overwhelmingly "liberal" and the Republican Party more conservative.  At times it has been difficult to find enough reasonable cooperation between parties and that is, unfortunately, how it is today. With President Trump now in the saddle, the Democratic Party has refused any level of cooperation -  and our government has slowed to a walk.

The simple explanation is probably the correct one. The hard left wing, usually members of the Democratic Party, allows no other point of view. They each consider moderate and conservative opposing ideas to have no merit. This…
