January 20, 2017 Won’t Come Soon Enough

As happy I will be to watch Donald J. Trump be sworn in as our 45th President, that happiness will be overshadowed by the absolute ecstasy I will feel knowing that Obama and his crew are out of our White House.  Good riddance and don’t let the door hit you on your way out. This […]


America is facing a whole lot of problems and the bozos in government don’t know how to set priorities.  For example, there are certain things that affect all of us as Americans.  Our almost 17,000,000,000,000.00 national debt, unemployment, the ever-rising welfare state, the IRS targeting select groups of citizens, the killing of four of our […]


In a recent column by Bill McClellan in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, he suggested, as a way to cut government spending, that we eliminate military funerals for all veterans except for those who died in combat.  He states that buglers who play “Taps” make $24.50 per service and, although, not excessive, the government is just […]

The United States Budget Dilemma

A friend of mine recently sent me this video.  I couldn’t believe what I heard so I sent it to another friend of mine, much smarter than myself, and asked if this was possible.  He responded with the following: “It is partially true.  But entitlements can be cut.  The social security age is being raised.  […]

Misplaced Outrage

I saw a great photo on Facebook today.  It read: APPARENTLY, I’M SUPPOSED TO BE MORE OUTRAGED BY WHAT MITT ROMNEY DOES WITH HIS MONEY THAT BY WHAT OBAMA DOES WITH MINE. I couldn’t say it any better.

Tisch entitled “Let’s Ban the Word ‘Trillion’” and I think it’s a great idea.  Writing $15.8 trillion instead of $15,800,000,000,000.00 really doesn’t convey the same thing, does it? Thanks to Mr. Tisch who someone figured out just how […]

Chuck Woolery with Some Common Sense

Sounds good to me!


That’s one of the responses from a man standing in line at the welfare office.  If your stomach can take it, please watch this video.  Our country is spending money faster than we can print it and there’s no doubt in my mind that we’re heading in the same direction as Greece – a big […]

That Was Then – This is Now

March 16, 2006, then-Senator, Barack Obama, said this about the debt crises:  Mr. President, I rise today to talk about America’s debt problem. The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. […]
