What has happened to our country? We have a president who seems unwilling to declare that we are the greatest nation on earth.
President Obama and the House of Representatives will ultimately maneuver towards a resolution of the government shutdown, but only after the stock market begins to take a serious tumble on fears that the debt ceiling will not be raised later this month.
I laughed last week when I received the reaction from some readers to my statement that the tea party movement's influence was waning and that it was being replaced by a more (Ron-Rand) Paul-type populist effort.
While speaking with another who is constantly polling and checking the pulse of the public, the conversation quickly moved to the inordinate fear that so-called "establishment Republicans" have of the "tea party."
Yes, I realize Newt Gingrich is not house speaker and is instead now a talking head on a cable news network. And yes, I realize that the economy is really not that great. But a familiar pattern, with a slight variation, may be repeating itself, and it might serve as a positive shot in the economic arm of the nation.
Let's get this right. Sen. John McCain supported a military response to Syria. Then he withdrew it.
Jesse Jackson says the tea party is the resurrection of the Confederacy. It's an example of sad prejudice in a sea of pride.
Yes, I am, like many, outraged over the NSA snooping into private phone calls and Internet communications. I even asked myself, "Who do they think they are, God?"
A saying that has haunted Republicans for decades appears to be one that will be repeated often in the next few years -- that being, "Republicans eat their young."
When he sought political redemption and won the presidency in 1968, his campaign signs and banners bore an unusually "hip" theme for his party and that decade -- they declared, "Nixon's the One."
As of now, the GOP seems so hopelessly at war among its own members and without a coherent message that it appears more reasonable to take the time to consider America with a string of potential Democratic presidents in our future.
I find it amazing when I read that inflation continues to be so low, as defined by the government, that leaders actually hope for a little higher inflation rate in the future.
I think by now we have all had it with the endless rounds of opinion about the George Zimmerman case.
When it first came to life, the tea party movement burst on the scene with energy and pure direction that seared many a mind with images of huge crowds waving the red, white and blue. It was all about taxes, and curtailing government spending, and liberty.
Delving into the merits of the central issues involved in all of the major decisions handed down by the Supreme Court on these matters will obscure a valuable silver lining for devotees of our constitutional framers.
Sarah Palin is often criticized for misstatements or controversial comments. Of course, were she a female Democrat with a flamboyant style, she would be labeled "brave" and "courageous" by the press.
So it seems we have now gone from the case of the lone 20-something gunman in the 1960s to the lone 20-something "leaker" of the 2010s.
There is no evidence at this time that President Obama or any White House officials had any direct knowledge of the IRS targeting as it started or was actively ongoing. But just as with Watergate, there are many loose ends and unanswered oddities that keep popping up.
any in the media are already castigating conservatives and Republicans for overreaching and overacting to what some are dubbing "IRS-Gate."
Last week, I listened to a loud, obnoxious woman interrupt the president of the United States numerous times during a speech on national security. She is the leader of the group Code Pink. They oppose war and the use of drones, and generally push a super-left-of-center view on everything from "green jobs" to health care.
