In the emerging commentary and analysis of the debt ceiling "debate" and it's "solution", a confusion exists as to what the economic crisis actually was before this deal was reached and the subsequent downgrade of our credit rating by S&P.
On the one hand, there are those, the current administration included, who seek to blame the S&P itself for this action, but that won't wash. Why not? For the simple reason that the S&P, among other ratings agencies, warned the…Continue

It is interesting that since our suppossed 'solution' to the debt crisis with this newest sellout, er., I mean "agreement", other nations have taken to lecturing the U.S. on fiscal responsibility.
Witness this quote from China. It has been noted in many reports, this one found on Yahoo News.
"China, the largest foreign holder of U.S. debt, took the world's economic superpower to task for allowing its fiscal house to get into such disarray. ...'The U.S. government has…Continue

Today in http://netrightdaily.com , Robert Romero writes an insightful article on the debt ceiling "debate" (The $1Billion Trillion Dollar Cut) in which he analyzes the DOA House plan of Speaker Boehner & Co. in terms of what the actual budget cuts are for the first year, compared to the rise in the debt ceiling agreed to in the plan for the first year. Romero writes:

Last week, Citizen magazine ran an article about the administration defending the concept of 'rationing boards" Here is a quote from that piece:
"Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius appeared before two House committees this week, trying to testify on controversial aspects of ObamaCare. At issue: The Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB) that’s made up of 15 presidential appointees — a majority of whom are required to be a nonphysicians — who have the power…Continue
One of the latest and greatest of political 'hotbuttons' lately has been the so-called 'debt ceiling' crisis. In an effort to basically get his own way, recently the President stormed out of meetings with Congress about solving this impending economic doom should the debt ceiling not be raised by Aug 2. Remember the kid who would take his bat and ball and go home if you didn't play by…Continue

There is an old man I know pretty well. At least, I have known him well for the past five-plus years. He recently celebrated his 75th birthday. I would like to tell his story here, because part of it is my story too.
This man has led a remarkable, if poignantly sad life. You see, he was born different than most people. His mental capabilities did not develop as they should have. In addition, he was abandoned by an alcoholic father at birth. His mother had been physically abused…Continue

OKAY! I told myself that I would not comment on the Casey Anthony verdict. I am, and have been for some time now, rendered ill by the media's seeming need to exploit the judicial system after a verdict that doesn't quite suit them. It is understandable to comment on these kind of things. It is even understandable to give opinion on them. It is NOT understandable to sensationalize both the proceedings and the result on news shows and the even worse court TV type of…Continue

GLENN BECK IS A
That was my recent response to someone who asked me what I thought of Glenn Beck while I was watching GB's
show on FOX. "In fact," I continued, "I think that…
There has been a lot of talk recently over the constitutional authority to wage war particularly concerning the conflict in Libya. Most conservatives are noting the lack of authorization from congress before we started 'enforcing a no-fly zone' in Libya. In addition, many are also talking about the fact that we are following UN dictates here rather than constitutional dictates. Some are even saying that they think this is 'unprecedented' in our land.
I can only say, "Whoa…Continue

I have been reading a lot of posts and comments on various conservative websites concerning possible republican candidates for president. Many people staunchly favor Ron Paul, who is officially a candidate I understand. While much of what he talks about is appealing, and he does seem geniunely honest, I have to conclude that he has had his shot more than once and couldn't get support. I cannot help but…Continue
