Jackie, I'm afraid I don't understand your comment about the debt must be paid off. No one has any intention of paying the debt off. The question is how much is the interest and can the U.S. pay it. The debt will soon be 20 Trillion. At the historical average interest rate of 4%, this means we must pay 800 billion dollars a year in interest. Ouch!!

In Praise of Walmart

I have nothing against Walmart. They do have favorable prices. Not so, however, in eye glasses. I bought a pair of eye glasses at Costco recently. The cost was $325 including state of Ohio sales tax. The frames were a top designer brand - Cole Hahn. Walmart did not have Cole Hahn frames so let's compare their top of the line Stetson frames. The price at Walmart? $530. Wow, what a difference. Also, Stetson frames are not as good as Cole Hahn's.

I'm ashamed to be part of a society such as the U.S. A country where more than 50% of its people actually voted for Obama, the worst President in history. I'm ashamed to be part of a country where the free loaders want more free stuff and to hell with their grandchildren. I'm ashamed to be part of a country that would treat the biggest oaf of all time as Royalty.
I agree. Enough is enough. Quit protecting sports stars who are doping. For example, Rafael Nadal's team keeps insisting he is not on PEDs. But, where there's smoke, there's fire. It's already known that he's a cheater. Is it such a stretch to think he uses PEDs? People such as Yannick Noah, Skip Bayless and countless others all think he is using PEDs. If he is, the ATP should stop protecting him. He hasn't played tennis for more than six months now and most people think he's on a Silent Ban from the ATP. It's time to stop protecting him. Many of his 11 grand slam wins should be given to the runner ups.
I'm sorry David but I'm too discouraged to be optimistic. If the worst President of all time can't be defeated, what can we as a country do? I really don't get it! Don't the liberals know that four more years of Obama will hurt the country so much. I think the first thing we can expect is another downgrading of our credit rating.
@Doug Giles, Very good column. I only wish I could express my self as well. Obama has not only doubled the deficit, he has no intention whatever of reducing his spending in the future.

What's wrong with helping the American consumer? We berate the Chinese for not making their currency strong enough. But this hurts the American consumer. I have always thought that only Alan Greenspan agreed with me. Now I realize that it was Milton Friedman who said it first:"Milton Friedman, whose writings Republicans once read as gospel, said we should throw America's markets open to the world, no matter the protectionist policies of others, because cheaper imports benefit all of America's consumers. "
But, Obama has killed Osama, hasn't he?
So, Obama has flip-flopped on same-sex marriage. How surprising!!
