In summary, rushed.
It is kind of amazing that after having the rights for twenty years or so for a book that is 1000+ pages the movie really seems rushed.
The overall movie seemed to jump from scene to scene trying to get through the story but not really settling in on the main plot. I [...]
The budget battle has shown weakness in the GOP leadership. It has shown they cannot negotiate under the barrage from the left and the mainstream media. They won elections stating they would get control of the budget. That they would start by cutting 100 billion from the 2001 budget. Then it turned into a [...]
I want to go a different direction. Why has illegal immigration not been fixed?
The answer is two-fold and in both parties: Corporate crony-ism and votes. Corporations want cheap labor and political parties want votes. People would not vote for higher prices and percieved “racism”. Therefore, politicians have no reason to fix the problem… or should I say “had” [...]
So many Democrats refer to Healthcare as a right and justify the need to cover 100% of the American populous (including illegal residents) and to vilify those that appose their agenda. I oppose this bill in many ways but not the least of which is that healthcare IS NOT a right and in fact is [...]
The short answer as with many large policy issues is “Absolutely and to the core of their policy direction.”
I am not talking about GOP arguments against Obamacare, their promises to repeal it or any new plans. I am talking about passed (past) legislation that can be reviewed in practice. I am talking about [...]
From the Rush album 2112. Listening again…to the political message in this album.
“Something For Nothing”
Waiting for the winds of change To sweep the clouds away Waiting for the rainbow’s end To cast its gold your way Countless ways You pass the days
Waiting for someone to call And turn your world around Looking [...]
I watched Tuesday and Wednesday’s (3/9-3/10) shows and the work at the chalkboard. I have to admit that I had a light bulb/AH HA moment. I do not believe that my “discovery” was your intent and may already be obvious to you and your audience. To me it was that dot that [...]
I have been thinking a lot about deep conservative values lately. Not just big government is bad and debt will kill us. That reaches across the isle (at least part way across a wide isle). But more deeply about (to use Mark Levine’s terms) Liberty and Tyranny. About how and what our founders were thinking.
As most have reported the Health Care summit was a bit of a show, with both sides trying to push their agendas and no real bi-partisanship. This, being the Republicans first time with a national spotlight on their plans, allowed them to stand out. Even David Gergen recognized this.
In the end, there was one [...]
You may have heard about the Canadian Premier that decided he wanted a more advanced surgery then his home country was willing to let him have. He decided to pick the best doctor from the best hospital which happened to be (no shock) in the United States. ”My Heart, My Health, My Choice” does not sound anti-freedom Canadian Socialist… it sounds almost [...]
