Maybe I’m just an old prude with outdated values but I believe the President of the United States of America should be Presidential. Yes, I know the President is only human and I’m sure he says some choice words when he stumps his toe the same as I, but I don’t expect him to say […]
President Obama has started sounding like a broken record. Blame it on someone else, it’s not my fault. (By the way, for those under the age of 30, a record was like a CD but made of vinyl and if it happened to become cracked or scratched, it would repeat a part of the recording […]
SIR, NO EXCUSE, SIR! If you are in the military or a veteran then you know what the subtitle means. One of the main things drilled into your head during boot camp is there is no excuse. No matter what the reason for your screw-up, stumble or being late, there is no excuse. Why is […]
An open letter to the Tea Party Movement
A favorite axiom in D.C. is the process of law making is like making sausage, not very pretty. During the discussion of Senator Mary Landrieu’s $300 million bribe, one Democrat’s defending her prostitution said, “That’s just the way laws are made.

That would mean all the rest of the bill would be in force. What would that do to the bill, whether it has a public option or not?
Yes, healthcare needs a tune-up, not a replacement or complete overhaul. Thank God, It looks like the monstrosity they are calling healthcare reform is not going to pass, but it is a shame also. If Congress had just a bit of common sense, they could ‘tune-up’ healthcare and make it affordable to everyone without bankrupting the country!
