Will the Real Barack Obama Please Stand Up?

Many years ago, there was a television program called “To Tell the Truth.” Three challengers were introduced, all claiming to be the central character. The announcer typically asked the challengers, who stood side by side, “What is your name, please?” Each challenger then stated, “My name is [central character’s name].” The host then read aloud […]

ANOTHER DEAL WITH THE DEVIL – WHAT DID THE CATHOLIC CHURCH EXPECT?

A lot has been written recently about the Obama Administration and the controversy with the Catholic Church.  The mandate in Obamacare requires all employers to provide birth control to their employees as well as abortifacients – the morning-after pills that can contribute to the abortion of a fertilized egg.  Obviously, the Catholic Church’s teachings oppose […]

So, What is Racism?

So, according to an article I just read, Samuel L. Jackson voted for Barack Obama because he was black.   In Jackson’s words, “Cuz that’s why other folks vote for other people — because they look like them.” Okay, so let me get this straight.  Jackson votes for Obama because he’s black but Jackson’s not […]

WHO WE NEED IS A GORDON RAMSAY

I think Gordon Ramsay is great.  For those of you unfamiliar with him, he’s a world-class chef, entrepreneur, Michelin Star restaurant owner and the star of several reality tv shows, my favorite being Kitchen Nightmares. When restaurants are failing miserably, Ramsay is called to save the day.  He speaks with the owners, managers and employees, […]

STOP PICKING ON ME

Remember back in 2008, when 84,000 people gathered at Invesco Field to hear then candidate Obama give his nominating acceptance speech.  Apparently, another 40 million people watched it on tv – I was not one of them, by the way.  But back then, everyone waited with bated breath for the Messiah to speak.  It seems […]

SUCCESS SHOULD BE ENCOURAGED, NOT PUNISHED

President Obama promised to bring this country together after the policies of the Bush administration divided the country so deeply.  Obama promised to be the President of all people. That was before he was elected.  More than two and a half years later, the country remains divided.  President Obama and his new campaign to create […]

NO WORRIES, MR. PRESIDENT; DO IT WHEN YOU GET BACK

Well, I guess campaigning around in a big black bus in the Midwest for three days isn’t Mr. Obama’s idea of a vacation because he’s just arrived at Martha’s Vineyard for a “real” vacation. The fact that probably millions of Americans don’t have the means to go on vacation doesn’t seem to bother the President. […]

THE “LIKEABILITY” FACTOR

Conversation which took place over twenty years ago: Colleague:   “Heard you were getting married; do I know him?” Me:  “Salazar, in Department 404.” Colleague:  “He’s marrying you?  But, he’s so nice…” Me:  (Puzzled look) Colleague:  “….oh, I mean, it’s not that you’re not nice, uh, you’re just different.” In my professional life, I was viewed […]

“MONEY FOR NOTHING AND YOUR ‘CHITS’ FOR FREE”

I know I’m beating a dead horse here, but I just can’t help myself. I run a law office which operates in Washington and California.  I keep calendars, meet deadlines, know in which court my husband is expected to be, and do tons of paperwork.  When I order supplies, I know exactly what I’m buying […]

SIGNED ‘SEAL’-ed DELIVERED STRAIGHT TO HELL

I’m so very proud of our military but words can’t express the admiration and deep gratitude I feel towards the Navy Seals who, with razor-sharp precision, infiltrated Bin Laden’s compound and killed him. I say, “good riddance UBL and may you rot in hell with the rest of your cohorts.” So while I’m reading today […]
