I am not a huge fan of Ron Paul nor am I a fan of Michelle Bachmann, but the fact of the matter is if you are going to hold debates like the ones that are held last night, purposely limiting candidates based on who the network believes will have the best chance of winning is a dangerous game to be playing. I have yet to hear any outrage from the other candidates, probably because they all had their fair time and then some, but it would be nice if the candidates stuck together in some respect and took over the debates from these networks. Mention someone here and there and allow them to get into the action. We all know who Cain, Gingrich, and Romney are, but to tell you the truth I had to do my own research on Bachmann and other candidates to see if they lined up with my point of view. The media did nothing to help in that cause, and that is because they are in the game of picking the winners and the losers.
Info Wars, which we all know to be a website by Alex Jones, a supporter of Ron Paul, points out that Ron Paul had only 89 seconds of air time the whole 90 minute debate. This is far from being fair, and in a debate fairness does count for something. We are watching it to learn more about the candidates, not just a few the media has decided would fit well with their ideological views. Like I have said before and will say again, I am no Ron Paul or Bachmann fan, but that does not mean I do not think they should have their time to speak and try to get people to support their candidacy. This is why we have these debates and why people should watch them. If the networks will censor the candidates, then why should I waste my time watching the debate? read more »
After months of hearing commentators say how good it was to see “Democracy” finally coming to Libya, we now know for a fact that was a dream if there ever was one. I was one of many who had their doubts about war in Libya, not because Col. Gaddafi was a good man but because what could have come and taken over could have been far worse and much more difficult to control from our end as a world power.
Our worries were justified, and no matter what the President says about “Democracy” in that part of the world, we the people know better. There is no democracy coming to Libya or any other of these nations, but what we will see is much worse than what we have seen in Northern Africa and the Middle East in our life times. You want to know who to blame for this, you do not not have to look too far!
It is very simple to blame the President of the United States for this when it was European powers who pushed this attack and pushed for help for the rebels, but the United States did not have to come on board with anything. We could have stayed out of the conflict and allowed Europe to deal with the trouble that came after. Instead, we have heard less and less about European involvement and much, much more about the United States involvement in Libya. This is because if it was not for the United States there would have been no NATO bombings which led to the demise of the Gaddafi regime. The end of the regime that we could control, for the most part, came about because the “Anti-War” President, the man given the Nobel Peace Prize, decided to back rebels that he KNEW would institute anything but Democracy inside Libya. We the people saw this coming, so it is tough to say the President and those ion our government did not see it coming. While we may not see a threat from Libya in the near future, we just may have created the next Iran without even thinking about the consequences of our actions. read more »
For anyone who was able to watch the debate and not either fall asleep or just walk away in disgust and the whole process, you were one of the many who saw a back and forth cage match pitting Romney vs. Perry, Ron Paul acting like Ron Paul, Santorum trying to become relevant, and Cain trying stave off even more attacks to his 9-9-9 plan.
Basically, in the most simplest terms, the same as the last debate with a different moderator, different questions, and a different setting. As I have said since I was a young boy, “Same crap, different day.”
You may ask why I am being so hard on this process of debates, and one of the reasons is that the process as a whole is making me sick at this point. When you try to sit here and listen to all the ideas and all the double talk that comes from many of these candidates, it really wears on you mentally. You have no idea who to support because one man says something you may agree with and the man you agreed with yesterday says something that makes you sick and someone who is irrelevant still makes it a point to make sure the American people know we spend too much money. Thank you Ron Paul, I get it! I know we spend too much money. But that is not the worst of it all. The worst of it all is when we hear that primaries may start in December and there are not too many everyday Republicans out there that are too happy about it. read more »
As if this nation did not have enough problems, now we learn that a high school in Texas, Achieve Early College High School, a public high school in the state of Texas. Just knowing the United States National Anthem and Pledge of Allegiance is not enough anymore, students must now learn to have a little pride for their neighbors to the south as well.
These students were forced to stand and recite these Mexican Allegiances, and the one girl who refused was forced to do another assignment. The school defends the action because it is a state requirement that all students learn a second language, but I do not think it is a requirement to force students to pledge allegiance to another country, especially during the week of the anniversary of 9/11. This also took place, funny enough, on Constitution Day, and the student, Brenda Brinsdon, made her complaints known to the school district. Her father also made complaints to the district as well, but was told this is required for the students. Watch the video and tell me what should be required in this video? read more »
Occupy Wall Street Protesters Suspicious Of Plan To Move Them From Park To Clean, Soros Connection Revealed
News moves fast these days, and today the Romney camp has probably felt great pride (with his establishment buddy Christie set to endorse him) and the great lows of what comes out of passing a health care plan that is holding the campaign back in the first place. NBC News is reporting that back in 2009, three former Romney aides who helped him craft Romneycare visited the White House on numerous occasions to discuss how the health care law in Massachusetts could be shaped into a national plan.
This is bad news for the Romney campaign when it was hard enough for him to explain away his actions on that legislation to begin with. This makes it that much harder for him to brush it off. read more »
You thought it was just Solyndra, didn't you? You thought the White House, the Energy Department, and all the others around this Administration could not lose twice in the green energy deals, but that has happened. read more »
California Gov. Jerry Brown Outlaws Tanning Beds For Minors, Ok’s Minors To Consent To STD Treatment
I should not have to point out the humor in this, if you find humor in any of this. We all knew California was a state that pretty much marched to the beat of their own drum, but if this does not show the people that the legislature has more power than the people, I have no idea what will. read more »
To top off all of the political correctness that we have seen over the past few decades in this nation, the figure at the beginning of the Monday Night Football events is now gone. ESPN has cut their ties with Hank Williams Jr. after comments made of Fox’s Fox and Friends where Hank Williams Jr. compared Boehner playing golf with President Obama would be “like Hitler playing golf with (Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin) Netanyahu.” When I believed political correctness and double standards could not be any more pathetic, this one comes along. ESPN has been trying to sweep this under the rug, and while the NFL will continue to be a very popular league, this will be one of those things that will be the straw that broke the camels back for at least some of those who were and still are fans of the league. read more »
