Egypt in danger of becoming Obama’s Iran.

Republicans LOVE to bash Jimmy Carter. Ridiculing him as an “abject failure” has become sport on the Right. So much so that I took the time last year to write a column clearly demonstrating that, when you look at the numbers, NO ONE holds a candle to the abysmal failure that was the George W. Bush Administration.

A Tale of Two State of the Union addresses: 2007 and 2011

I chose that particular address because it was the first following his 2006 mid-term “thumpin’” at the polls where voters swapped control […]

Understanding “Global Warming” in 30 seconds.

Share

Happy New Year! You may have noticed that precious little attention has been paid to the subject of “Global Climate Change” since the Obama Administration took office. A few minor policies here and there. But where is that desperately needed “Green Jobs Program” when unemployment is pushing 10% and the nations weather patterns are going […]
