  • Welcome President Obama, goodbye Bush

    If we all believe a lie, does the truth exist? This is a Zen metaphor for how Bush 43 set us up; the ultimate con. Get ready, folks, you’ve barely been exposed as yet. Right now, we are at an early conditioning phase. What should we know? That’s easy.

    Did you listen to his remake of history in the last few days of his failed presidency? He sees himself as being unappreciated as (elder statesman) he refers to himself as the liberator, the man who saved us from terrorism. He tells us of his biggest disappointment – the jumbled research findings of the CIA.

  • An extraordinary event in extraordinary times

    With an estimated 1 million people surrounding the National Mall on Jan. 20, it may have been the largest crowd to ever attend a presidential inauguration. Some accounts say there were people as far as the eye could see. And PBS reported that more than 2 million people came to Washington, D.C. to attend some part of the historic event.

  • Best of luck, Mr. President

    Every true American will wish our incoming president success in his efforts to preserve, protect, and defend the nation and its liberty. In these troubled times our good wishes may be the only honeymoon card he’ll get.

    Mr. Obama cracked the whip on his own party as soon as the electoral votes were counted, telling Congress he wanted a stimulus package for the economy on his desk as soon as his buns hit the chair in the Oval Office. Congress is moseying along at political warped speed.

  • Make Dr. King’s birthday a ‘day on’ – not off

    The MLK Jr. Commemorative Commission of Marion County will conclude a weeklong celebration of the birthday of one of the greatest figures of the 20th century with a call to service at “Day at the Park” on Monday, Jan. 19, from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Martin Luther King Jr. complex.

  • Dr. King’s march for civil rights reaches a milestone

    On Monday, Jan. 19, Marion County residents are invited to walk in the annual march honoring Martin Luther King Jr. The younger ones in the crowd won’t remember the turbulent times of the Civil Rights movement in the United States.

    They are too young to remember the arrest of Rosa Parks or to personally hear the speeches of Martin Luther King. They know only of the struggle for equal rights through the pages of history books and through stories told by their elders.

    A new stimulus package,

    and a $1 trillion in debt

    As the top consumers of the world’s products, we, the American shoppers, have become the most studied animals on the planet. Product manufacturers and their retail sales agents have us sorted and classified by sex, age, education, religion, race, housing, income and many other traits. They use all types of data in their computer models to predict what we want, when we want it and how much we will pay for it.

  • How much more of the bailout can we bear?

    Are you ready for some “blockbuster” or “unbelievable” news regarding more loans being made - and we’re not talking about the $700 plus billion White House-approved package that the Treasury Department is rapidly going through?  Plus, now, they are even asking for more.

  • Some gifts are given all through the year

    It’s Christmastime and the cultural mix that has become America is caught up in a celebration of life and hope. Not everyone participates – but most do – even those who aren’t very religious. We think of others and what may make them happy – whether it is a special present or the simple gift of food to those who don’t have much.
