OBAMA, A FATHER'S DAY GIFT TO AMERICA

The celebration of Father's Day takes on many different styles, many different emphases.  This year we have a special example in that our President has presented us with a wonderful example.  While holding the most important elected position in the world, Barack Obama has taken the time for his family.  He has remained as a human being, with normal activities, and being an American father as much as is possible carrying his position and responsibilities.  No one can doubt that a terrible burden was unloaded on him when he took office, more than presidents usually have to deal with and confront.

QUESTIONS ABOUT 'TRUTH'

We go along in life, holding fast to those things that support our belief system, rarely questioning what we are told that way.  As a result, whether left-wing or right-wing, we become robots.  If you challenge or question those hard-wired belief systems, people will come up with some cockamamie comment to tell you why you are wrong.  Common among such cranks are the Bible-totters who do not question anything in that heavily changed and manipulated book through the years.  And the FOX News loyalists who actually believe what they see and hear there as truth.  Or the Constitutional freaks who have no idea what is meant in the Bill of Rights or individual rights and equality.  Some pins in their balloons...

SHAME ON STATE DEMOCRATS!

After oh, so many years of Tommy Thompson giving away the store to big corporate interests, what we have now is giving it away to a different set of interests.  Bringing a majority into the Wisconsin legislature, the Democrats have had a marvelous opportunity to save the state from the horrors of Tommy Thompson's giveaways, and to re-establish the stable, responsible government of past Democratic majorities.  Instead they dropped the ball badly, and sold out to special interests and parochial segments of the state.

A TRUE PEOPLE'S PRESIDENT

Watching President Barack Obama give a speech and respond to questions from the audience in Green Bay, Wisconsin was electrifying.  His comfort zone with the office is truly amazing.  He has wit, insight, intellect, background, stats, style, and relates to people from all walks of life.  And his humor is always present.  He is very special.  I  hope enough people give him a chance to right the ship of state before judging him.  He has inherited a horrible legacy from the past several presidents.  There was a steep nosedive haunting the office of President when he took office just a short while ago.

Limbaugh-Cheney-Gingrich. 3 Blind Mice

Let's take the three hypocrites who now lead the Republican Pary one by one.  Sarah Palin is left out because the GOP decision-makers have decided to keep her out of the major spotlights because she tends to put her foot in her mouth regularly (not to mention the chauvanism of the Republican Pary).    So, let us review some things about each of the three acknowledged right-wing leaders...[remember, that the most damning thing about them is their phony high moral countenenance]...
