Logan's Run
Author: BobR    Date: 01/28/2015 14:53:52

The Republican "leadership" in Congress continues it's approach to governing as a 3-yr old child automatically saying "NO" to anything requested. This has been their modus operandi ever since President Obama was elected; did anyone expect anything different after the last election? In this particular case, the president asked for Congress not to derail the delicate negotiations with Iran over nuclear development by going all bull-in-a-china-shop and enacting further sanctions.

Congress didn't just say NO, they said HELL NO!

Good Morning.

Today is our 222nd day back in Iraq.

There have been no new American casualties in Iraq or Afghanistan.

We find this morning's Cost of War passing through:

$ 1, 599, 150, 575, 000 .00

Surprisingly enough, we'll start from Fox News this morning. It's really only a footnote as far as we're concerned, but the story illustrates that the more things change, the more they stay the same...especially in Saudi Arabia. Remember folks, these are our allies. (Although if true, the perpetrator probably deserved it, but that's a debate for another day.)

Good Morning.

Since the most important news all week has been the ongoing saga of the flaccidity of Tom Brady's Balls, there's been a couple of things that may have slipped through the cracks. Individually, these two stories make you go "Huh, that's interesting."

But put them together, and you'll be reaching for your foilhat.

I don't think I would have had the patience this woman has.

State of the Union - 2015
Author: BobR    Date: 2015-01-21 11:44:07

Prior to last night's State of the Union address, there were hints that President Obama was going to go a more populist route. He did just that, as well as jab the Republicans with some velvet-tipped spears to prod them into doing more than just disagreeing with whatever he proposed. It was entertaining to watch, but will likely not inspire them to do anything different, especially since they all seemed glued to their seats, with what must have been lemons in their mouths.

He opened with a salvo of good economic news, obviously targeted at Republicans who have tried to paint the economy with bleak colors despite the rosy reality. He then mentioned he wanted to talk more about values than specific items (this is where he pivoted into populist mode), but he still mentioned numerous specific program ideas along the way, covering numerous topics.

Every year on this day, I write a blog to honor one of the most well known civil rights leaders and activists, Dr. Martin Luther King, Junior.

Every year I try to write something inspiring, something not very well known about a man that I deeply deeply admire - Something like this.
