Watching the protesters in Chicago, who are commonly referred to as the “Occupy Wall Street” crowd, I am inclined to believe that we need to reinstitute the military draft for both boys and girls. It would make them into men and women.
Hillary Clinton continues to get plaudits for her work as Secretary of State, and as a result she is viewed very favorably by the public. But could someone please tell me what she has accomplished other than appeasing the pseudo-intellectuals of Europe who hated that cowboy from Texas.
Rarely have I been as impressed with a religious leader as Cardinal Timothy Dolan. When the time comes, the other Cardinals should seriously consider him for Pope (unless, of course, they’ve identified another equally awesome human being.)
Living in the political wasteland formerly known as the Golden State (California), I occasionally meet someone who has recently moved here who has no intention of seeking a career in the movie industry and I ask myself “why?” We have a dysfunctional government completely controlled by left-wing union bosses, a budget that has been hopelessly out of balance for over a decade, a lousy public school system, a high unemployment rate that is only worsened by the procession of employers leaving the state, soaring energy costs due to misguided “green energy” schemes, and the highest gas prices in the country. You have to wonder if these people have been in a cave. On the other hand, we have sunshine and no humidity.
President Obama’s new economic plan is to hire more union workers. More construction union workers, more teachers and more local government employees with borrowed money. Those union workers will then contribute to the estimated $400 million the unions plan to spend on this fall’s election on your behalf. The question is Mr. President what is the plan for the 93% of us who are not members of unions?
I watched the movie Windfall recently. It was about a group of people in upstate New York who came face-to-face with the real-world folly of wind energy. These people were enamored by the idea until they actually started to live with it – or more precisely, learned they couldn’t live with it. This wasn’t a documentary made by “right-wing kooks”, but it did show that even the Left can’t defend the stupidity of destroying American landscape with bird-killing windmills.
