On the scale of Presidential scandals, I would hardly rank the unfolding “Solyndra-Gate” at the top of the list. I’m not even sure it holds the top spot on President Barack Obama’s own personal disgrace chart. But the Solyndra bankruptcy did manage to flush a half-billion taxpayer dollars down the drain, so it certainly merits examination.
Last Friday’s Freedom Watch, The Rape Of Amy Alkon, touched a nerve with readers and sparked an interesting conversation — and not a few frightening comments. Some of the comments demonstrate the police state is alive and functioning well, as the government fascists hoped. People are becoming mindlessly subservient.
Forget reality television; we have the seemingly interminable pre-primary segment of the 2012 Presidential race to watch. While critics unload heaps of inane trivia, the candidates display themselves like peacocks, trying to distract potential supporters from whatever flaws they have with magnificent displays of political plumage.
Some random observations from Monday night’s Tea Party GOP debate in Tampa, Fla. There seemed to be a great deal of shiftiness and doublespeak! And I wonder what the mainstream media think about this: If Ron Paul is unelectable, why are so many of the candidates echoing his positions?
I would have thought that — outside macabre celebrations in the Islamofascist sandboxes — there was no “wrong” way to commemorate the anniversary of 9/11. Among those with whom I share relationships, a variety of methods took shape.
While preparing to go through airport security on March 31, Amy Alkon noticed everyone in the line she was in was receiving an “enhanced pat-down” by Transportation Security Administration gropers. Alkon was determined not to go through the scanner. But she was unprepared for the sexual assault that was about to take place.
None. Goose egg. Zip. Zilch. Nada. Zero. That’s the total number of jobs added to the American economy during the month of August. During his Presidency, Barack Obama has certainly taught me to lower expectations. Well, congratulations, Mr. President, here’s a new low!
The Teamsters union’s lead thug Jimmy Hoffa had some profane and incendiary rhetoric in store for a crowd at a campaign event for President Barack Obama in Detroit on Monday.
The biggest punch line in American higher education just got a whole lot funnier. One might fairly presume that at some point, churning out graduates who parrot leftist babble while lacking fundamental academic and societal skills will drag the University of California, Berkeley’s reputation lower than Vice President Joe Biden’s self-esteem after an hour at a Mensa meeting.
Inflation-driven rising food prices, consumers with less discretionary income and alternatives to the hormone- and antibiotic-laden chickens found in grocery stores have caused a drop in the demand for store-bought chicken. Rather than let Big Chicken deal with the fact that it erred by raising production 4 percent as demand was decreasing, the United States Department of Agriculture (read the American taxpayer), is bailing out chicken producers to the tune of $40 million.
