  • How much more stimulus can we take?

    As more Americans lose their jobs and the overall economy gets worse by the day, you hear over and over, please don’t stimulate us anymore we can’t afford it! Our government is continuing to follow the pattern of the past number of years where our nation spent for things it couldn’t afford with money we didn’t have.

  • I must be getting older . . . I feel my corns more than my oats!

  • Economy needs

    to be restarted

    President Obama has been in the Oval Office about two months and he continues to generate some interesting numbers. Most of them have a dollar sign in front and a lot of zeros behind.

    As required by all members of Congress, Obama had previously declared his net worth as $1.3 million. He spent $235 million to beat Hillary for the Democratic nomination and $760 million to beat McCain for the presidency. That’s $995 million for his 2008 campaign.

  • “We really have to start working on our water problems!”

  • One man’s stimulus is another’s pork

    This $800 billion stimulus package is a bridge to nowhere. The question most heard on the television is, “Where are the jobs?”

    Millions of dollars for Planned Parenthood, free condoms for poor people, $200 million for Filipino war veterans and a few million dollars more for a new palace for Homeland Security. And how does that create jobs?

    What we have here is politics as usual. Were you expecting Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Eleanor?

  • Have you no sense of decency, sir, at long last?

    He is in many ways the most gifted demagogue ever bred on these shores.

    No bolder seditionist has moved among us — nor anyone with a surer, swifter access to the dark places of the mind. Then he discovered Socialism.

    Soon no man was closer than he to the center of American consciousness or more central to the world’s consciousness of America.

  • It’s a new America, like it or not

    Conservation has stronger connotations these days than ever before. The word is used in conjunction with just about every aspect of our lives.

    Locally for example, the water management district tells us to conserve water because Marion County, along with the rest of the state, is experiencing a serious drought.

    We’re told to conserve our water usage – don’t water our lawns as often as we used to, and we’re warned to be alert to other ways of conserving water – like fixing dripping faucets.

  • Symptoms of infectious capitol diseases

    Up until World War II, Washington, D.C. was a political, cultural, and economic backwater. Except for ambitious politicians and lifetime job seekers, most Americans worked and lived in the real world of elsewhere.

    Over time, fumes from the Potomac River infected Washington politicians and bureaucrats with a peculiar sense of uniqueness. They became unable to “get it.” The infection is highly contagious, has a wide range of symptoms, and has no known cure. One of the worst effects is premature memory loss.
