In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR

  1. Why did the press need a list of people Obama was “meeting with” (aka, photo opping with, as seen in many press releases and the gaggle of media)? I think it’s dangerous to the families at home to know EXACTLY who’s over there anyhow. What’s to prevent some radical Islamist for hunting them down and getting even?

    I thought he was there to “surprise” the troops ! Obviously this was no surprise and probably planned for weeks. Someone mentioned he had the troops up very late too for his speech and hugs and stuff.

    1. Nothing he does is spontaneous or unscripted, ever. Even his “surprise” stop at the Little League game was planned. He’s as phony as a $3 bill and he could care less about the troops, or the traffic jams he causes, he only cares about himself and his photo ops.

    2. So the agency that’s supposed to be overseeing the entire consumer financial market can’t even manage itself? Well that sure instills confidence in me.

    3. Good question. It takes a stick of dynamite and a court order to find out who MrO is “meeting with” in the WhiteHouse, and even that doesn’t always work.

      Of course, one wonders why he met with these people at all, when he doesn’t even meet with this cabinet.
      PR<look I'm in charge and working hard? dunno.

  2. This design is steller! You most certainly know how to keep a reader entertained.
    Between your wit and yoour videos, Iwas almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Fantastic job.
    I really loved what you had to say,and more than that, how you presented it.
    Too cool!

  3. Push to privatize VA

    Isn’t it ironic? The VA is a wholly owned subsidiary of the U.S. govt., aka Single Payer in its truest form. A perfect argument as to why Obamacare should be declared a national disaster and repealed ASAP.
    The red flags are everywhere. Obamacare architect, Dr. Zeke, already let the cat out of the bag: “Insurance companies will be going away.” Wake up Amerika!

  4. Heap of smell the CFPB — smells of Comrade Elizabeth Warren and Obama’s “recess” appointee Cordray — nothing good for consumers coming out of this .

    1. I did this thinking I could get the error message that I am getting when I post. I can click through it and comment is posted.

      Maybe I can catch it next time. We know there will be a next time.:)

      1. HA! Right on time. Here is the error message. Compression not suppression. Once person’s “ism” is another’s “ssion” I always say.
