My Political Framework of Thinking

»Posted by on Apr 3, 2010 in Life, Politics, Spiritual | 0 comments

Experiences of childhood affects many facets of our adult life. Recently I was thinking about my political beliefs of limited government and my dislike for government expansion with entitlement programs. I grew up in a middle class neighborhood. My parents did not have a lot of money, they never gave me a lot of money, but growing up, I never did without the basics. Sure, I would have liked to have been given additional spending money to purchase more clothes, Beatles albums, ballgame tickets, swimming club memberships, junk food, you get the picture. My parents and grandparents grew a lot of our food in vegetable gardens. We ate them fresh from the garden in the summer, and out of jars and freezer bags in the winter. My grandparents kept the neighborhood...

I’m Thankful When the Government Looks After Me

»Posted by on Apr 1, 2010 in Funny, Politics | 0 comments

Yes I am thankful when the government looks after me.  I know sometimes I can be negative about government intrusion, but I’m going to turn over a new leaf starting today. News cameras spotted our distinguished Mayor of Philadelphia (Nutter Dem.) as he proudly walked the hallowed littered streets of Philly feeling good about the newly passed law requiring restaurants and food establishments to post calories of food for all to see. It warms my soul as well because I’ve always wondered how many calories a Starbucks Vente Caramel Machiato with double cream contained. And thankfully I can also see right away the calories in a Boston Cream Filled Dunkin Doughnut.  No more for me!!  That did it! This along with the new tax proposal to add 25 cents to the...

Why all the Anger?

»Posted by on Mar 29, 2010 in Politics | 0 comments

This past week was a tough one for conservative Americans as we witnessed the largest government takeover and expansion since FDR and social security. Congressional representatives from both sides of the isle complained of being victims of hate “crimes,” vandalism, ugly and nasty comments.  Some liberals have accused the right of being racists, bullies, uncaring and hate mongers.  Some on the right have have indulged in name calling (“it’s a baby killer”), “communists,” and so on.  There is a lot of anger in our country today.  We see this on the news programs, hear it on talk radio, and read it on Facebook of all places.  We’ve all heard it before that it’s taboo and an Emily Post  no-no to discuss...

Million “Man/ Woman” March

»Posted by on Sep 15, 2009 in Healthcare Reform, Politics | 3 comments

First of all let me apologize to my “thousands” of loyal followers (ok , both of you) for being gone so long.  But I’m back and now ready to leave again.  So much going on in Obamaland I don’t know where to begin.  As an overall observation, I’m thinking back at how the Community Organizer (AKA, BO) was going to bring peace, love, prosperity and cooperation to all.  He was going to “change the tone” in Washington.  He was going to bring Democrats and Republicans together.  There was to be peace and harmony forever more.  The hatred and racism of the past would be buried forever as we elected our first black President. Oh well.  So much for promises from a politician.  In my short 49 years, (OK, 56 short years),...

Frankenstein on Steroids

»Posted by on Aug 24, 2009 in Healthcare Reform, Life, Pharmaceutical Industry | 0 comments

Look, I’m a simple minded person so let me help simplify the hoop-la going on in Washington surrounding the proposals for government takeover of your health-care.  First of all, it’s not “Obamacare” because BO has no bill. Although not as catchy, it’s more accurate to call it Pelosi-Reid care since BO has turned over the responsibility of writing this 1000 page bill of Frankenstein proportion to Nancy and Harry.   All you have to remember is,  regardless of which bill is passed (senate version or house version) , if it’s split apart, if it’s passed one step at a time, the ultimate goal of the current democrat leadership in the house and senate is to dismantle the finest health care system in the world currently...
