Are We All Stupid

A  Baptist Pastor has decided that Mormonism is a cult.  This arrogance presumes that Christianity is the only acceptable religion, and doesn'tt this kind of thinking make it easy for atheists to convince people that NO GOD is better than ANY GOD? 


Rick Perry is a good ol' boy from Texas where he is known as a   good executive leader. He does not fit the national or the international stage competitively. He might be a better President than Mr. Obama but that's not good enough. Mr. Perry's campaign is dead in the water.


The TEA Party is universally scorned by the liberal elite even though they know that the TEA Party represents the majority of Americans. The (extreme) far-left crowd still insists that it knows what is best for America. How they keep a straight face is amazing, but they do. The ROLE of the Federal Government  is  described very well in our founding documents - which also describes LIMITS to it's power.  

There is no statement in the entire history of extreme far-left liberal American politics that defines the corruption of the Federal Government legislative process better than the words of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi: 

"WE HAVE TO PASS THE OBAMACARE BILL IMMEDIATELY SO THAT WE CAN READ IT LATER"

DuringI the administration of President Nixon America went off the gold standard. Is it coincidental that around the same time the power of lobbyists grew rapidly? Wasn't that when the government discovered that the SOCIAL SECURITY plan was underfunded? And isn't that when America reached the apogee of it's political maturation? 

Interesting. From Nixon's time forward America has been losing stature at home and abroad.

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…
