Sometimes someone else’s column just smacks you up against the head trying to understand what they are thinking. Mitch Albom, the sports columnist for the Detroit Free Press and author of Tuesdays with Morrie among other books, wrote such a column which in many ways defines what is wrong with America today.
When analyzing some governments, it becomes easy to see why they are failures. Venezuela is one that comes to mind.
We are all guilty of providing a wide leeway to a politician that we favor. If the politician is someone we support, we restrain ourselves when something becomes public that would have us in a tizzy if done by someone with whom we dislike politically. That is referred to as “cutting someone some slack.” But there is a limit for everyone like there was for Anthony Weiner or Larry Craig. When will the grownups in the Democratic Party say enough is enough with Barack Obama?
Until now I never heard partisans jeering refs for fouls called on their opponents. But the new rules dictated by the NCAA this year have caused just that.
Until recently I was a full-time employee and had a very good job. In fact most years we were so busy I worked some long hours and received some significant bonuses from my employer. But now I have been freed from having to spend so much time supporting my family.
Hi, I’m Dave.
One somewhat stares at it wondering whether to pick it up. Its girth sets you back. My Uncle has said a book this size should really count as reading two books. And then you think gosh, I have already read almost 2,000 pages in the past three books that Robert Caro wrote about Lyndon Johnson. Do I really want to forge through another 600-page book? Then you find a time when you can commit and you do it. You start to read Passage of Power and you are grateful for every moment.
In the aftermath of Maria Shriver’s report presented to President Obama on how women are being abused financially in America, we need to take a look at whether they have reached real equality.
It all kind of started to fall apart when he said “… no such thing as shovel-ready projects.”
There is a subject that I don’t really think about and don’t really want to – dying.But I recently turned 60 years old and know that, not being 18 years old, dying is sooner for me than for someone that age.So I spent some time struggling with the issue.
Some of the world’s most famous people became such by challenging conventional wisdom. Who does not know the name Galileo? He was scorned as a heretic in his day. Or what American does not know of Jonas Salk, who developed a nonconventional process and saved the world from the dreaded polio disease.
Now that Obamacare has actually been unleashed on the unsuspecting American public, there is mass speculation about whether it will succeed as a program. Each political side presents its arguments with many former supporters caught in the middle.
A storm was created by a federal judge who ruled that the NSA is inappropriately collecting information on American citizens in violation of the fourth amendment.There has been immense reaction for and against his ruling.But no one seems to really point out the flaw in his ruling.
On Friday morning, the day after Thanksgiving, while others are busy rushing around trying to get bargains on sweaters and toys, I take out my ever-burgeoning collection of Christmas music to be listened to over the ensuing few weeks.
As Queen Kathleen (Sebelius) has stated, the people who want her fired are “people I don’t work for.” This is indicative of an attitude exhibited by many in the Administration that the principal complaints concerning Obamacare are coming from people who did not want the law from its inception.
By now you have probably read and heard a flood of analysis on the interim deal the Obama Administration made with the Iranian government in coordination with five other governments. Except for two people who write for the New York Times, the reviews we have read are quite damning.
The question became where Thompson and the producers were heading with their work? One could conclude that they made up their minds early on that they had an agenda.
Rarely does an investigative report manage to unite industry executives, academics, and regulators in such a way as the recent Frontline/ProPublica Life and Death in Assisted Living.
As a columnist I am supposed to dispassionately convey a viewpoint to educate my readers about the topic du jour. But I am hopping mad. Not at Obama or Queen Kathleen because I lost faith and confidence in those two long ago.
It took a government shutdown, but after four years the Democrats in the U.S. Senate (led by the Undertaker) finally agreed to an established process that has gone on for ages: sitting down with the House of Representatives and hashing out a budget.
