What do you mean, “Keep some powder dry?

I want to thank the many thousands of you who have posted comments at the end of my various Straight Talk columns. I really enjoy reading these interesting, intelligent, informed, opinionated, controversial and sometimes downright insulting responses that you all have posted. If you’ve never read some of the correspondence that my articles have elicited, […]

Racism, the Rich, Record Debt and More Biased Reporting

*Are you a racist? According to Jesse Jackson, if you oppose Obama’s plan for socialized medicine in the United States, you are. And you’re a racist even if you’re black! Yes, incredible as it may seem, the premier race-baiter in America, the so-called “Reverend” Jesse Jackson, told a crowd at the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation that “You can’t vote against healthcare and call yourself a black man.” His remarks were aimed at Rep. Artur Davis, a black congressman from Alabama who voted against the measure. Good for you, Artur. Please stand up to that loud-mouthed bully.

*Are you an American?Here’s an amazing quote from an Associated Press (AP) story…

New York City Taxes, Conservative Women, Global Warming and Loans to Uncle Sam

*Where were you on Nov. 16, 2000? Most of us would find it impossible to know for certain where we were on any given day—especially if it were almost a decade ago. But for one hedge-fund manager, his whereabouts for four days in 2000 was worth almost $27 million. That’s how much Julian Robertson saved […]

What Obama Should Do and Shouldn’t Have Done, a Deficit and Ted Turner

*What Barack Obama should do. A Straight Talk salute to Liz Cheney, daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, for the best suggestion I’ve heard regarding Obama’s acceptance of the Nobel Peace Prize. Here’s what she said: “What he ought to do, frankly, is send the mother of a fallen American soldier to accept the […]

Congressional Honor, Friends and Term Limits

*A congressional honor role. Here’s a tip of the hat to the seven House members of the Congressional Black Caucus who voted to defund the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN). They were Sanford Bishop of Georgia, William Lacy Clay of Missouri, John Conyers of Michigan, Artur Davis of Alabama, Hank Johnson of Georgia, Kendrick Meet of Florida and Laura Richardson of California. Since there are 35 members of the Congressional Black Caucus in the House of Representatives, this means that a staggering 80 percent of them voted not to stop taxpayer funds from going to an organization that has been caught on video at least five times offering advice on how to practice slavery.

A Growing Deficit, Missing Millionaires, Red Hot China and More American Ingenuity

Thanks to the recession, the Federal government is collecting less in taxes than expected, but increased spending is ramping up the deficit. The recession is also affecting millionaires, and the ranks of that group fell by 15 percent last year. But the recession isn’t affecting China as much, as almost one-third of new listings on Nasdaq are Chinese companies. American ingenuity hasn’t been stifled either. To learn more on these subjects, continue reading…

Chastising a Dictator, the Irreligious, AARP and a Rising Federal Payroll

*Congress rebukes Obama for dictatorial claim. It wasn’t the biggest issue to come before Congress in a long time. But as a straw in the wind, it could be significant. On July 9, the U.S. House voted overwhelmingly (429 to 2) to tell President Obama he has to obey the law. The previous month, when […]

How Barack Obama Will Destroy Liberalism

Barack Obama defeated John McCain by about 7 million votes last fall. Now some 10 million voters say they don’t like what the president is doing. Is the Obama honeymoon over, and what does it mean for the future of the president and his party? Read this article to find out…
