Moammar Gadhafi is dead! Long live Libya! That is the newest mantra from the Administration of President Barack Obama. Then again, Obama has been known to play fast and loose with the truth, especially when it comes to Islam.
Many studies have demonstrated that being poor will make you miserable, but being rich does not make you happy. At some level, society has always understood this. The ancient Greeks talked about the elusive notion of what made a good life. They called it “eudaimonia.” It’s the philosophy that happiness comes from work that helps others, not worldly possessions.
This is the autumn of our discontent. I believe something sinister is coming down the pipe. Week after week of demonstrations around the world could be a harbinger of revolt and even mass violence.
A spotlight has been thrown on the former Governor of Massachusetts and front-running GOP Presidential candidate Mitt Romney. You probably have heard that Romney is a Mormon. It was much publicized earlier this month when Pastor Robert Jeffress called Mormonism a “cult” at a political gathering.
The Wall Street Journal recently pointed out that when it comes to job and energy security, President Barack Obama simply doesn’t get it. For all his soaring rhetoric, the President’s September “jobs speech” demonstrated zero insight into how America could really grow its economy while reducing its dependence on Mideast oil.
American liberals are determined to sell out America, even it means a deal with the devil: China. If the Greens get their way, America will need China just to power itself up each day. That is because China has a near monopoly of rare earth elements, the essential ingredients that power renewable energy.
The road to hell is paved with good intentions. I have little doubt that the road President Barack Obama envisions is built around renewable energy; the only vehicles that traverse it are electric. It is the world of science fiction. America’s problem is that this world will hasten our downfall.
Autumn is nearly here, and I am reminded of stock market crashes and one near plane crash. The September equinox marks the anniversary of when my Uncle Richard and I fell from the sky in his Cessna 172. I haven’t had such a close call since, yet I have a lot of anxiety these days — not about flying, but about the stock market.
A couple of years ago, former oil maverick T. Boone Pickens launched an $82 million national advertising campaign to promote the Pickens Plan, an energy policy aimed at reducing the American addiction to foreign oil. Pickens faces only one problem: There is no viable substitute for oil and gas — at least not yet.
When it comes to defeating Islamic extremists, maybe President Barack Obama should take lessons from Hollywood bad boy Charlie Sheen. That way Obama could reach his younger constituency through the magic of YouTube.
