When presidents give speeches, the affair is choreographed like a Broadway production. The message is not just the words of the speech, but where it is given and who happens to be the chosen audience. So it was not by accident that President Barack Obama chose a theater in a poor black neighborhood in Washington, D.C., where the average income is barely half the national average, to speak this week about economic opportunity and fairness.
If Americans take to the streets, as they arguably should, they should be demanding not a higher minimum wage but leadership with clarity, optimism and regard for individual initiative that inspired prosperity in generations past.
When something sounds too good to be true, it usually is. Such may be the case with a recent study by the Harvard University Institute for Politics receiving much attention that found 54 percent of those aged 18 to 29 disapprove of Barack Obama’s job performance of president.
Today (December 7th) marks the 72nd year anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor naval base. How sad that this date - which would live in infamy - has been nearly forgotten by toady's American population and especially our youth. Tragically it has been the successful revision of our American history by the Left and the evils of it that has made us weak and vulnerable to a present day "Pearl Harbor" of exponential proportions.
On a recent visit to Texas, Bill Whittle experienced what it looks like and feels like to live free...rather than in a regulatory, statist, stifling nightmare like liberal California. The way Texas mostly still is, is how America was founded and was designed always to operate. The American way is in danger--not just in California, but nationally--of being stifled under the smothering oppression of Leftist statism.
In the course of my work to help a senior citizen couple who had a problem with incorrect information in the couple’s Medicare records, I have been given three different addresses for mailing important documents from our clients to the Coordinator of Medicare Benefits. It seems that the Medicare system is working worse than it ever has since I started helping senior citizens. Why is that? What will be done to fix Medicare and health care in America? Who is not doing a good job and causing problems for others?
Directing attention to the “defining issue of our time,” Barack Obama recently warned the American people of the “fundamental threat to the American dream, our way of life, and what we stand for around the globe.” The President wasn’t referring to terrorism, an economic crisis, the presently occurring healthcare disaster, or human rights violations. Rather, he was talking about the trends of wealth inequality and decreasing economic mobility in the United States.Next Page »
"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the party over to the so-called moderates wouldn't make any sense at all." - Ronald Reagan, Nov. 10, 1964
