While speaking to supporters in Austin, Texas July 10, 2014, President Obama made light-hearted remarks about the possibility of being sued by the House of Representatives. His statements in part… “You’re going to use taxpayer money to sue me for doing my job – while you don’t your job” was made in jocular tones and elicited laughter from the audience
We have arrived at a time when some say the economy is akin to the whirlpool seen as water drains from the bath and any hope of a bright future has faded like the sun in mid-December. It is these times of despair that human nature prompts one to turn inward and seek to preserve self, first
“Listen my children and you shall hear..;” not of an imminent attack by a foreign army, but the need to understand why the warning was given. It is time to study the pages of history and bring them forward, while asking ourselves, what if anything, have we learned?
In the days of Paul Revere, what were his concerns and those of his countrymen? Why did they venture to unexplored parts of the world facing unknown dangers and possibly death even before reaching their destination? What would prompt one to evacuate normalcy of family life, stability of community and relinquish familiar surroundings? Would the hapless traveler sacrifice so much simply for the thrill of the chase? Knowing the perils faced by all who sojourned to the new land, we must presume the yearning for freedom and liberty outweighed those fears and ordered up the courage necessary for one to take such a risk
To understand what is going on in Washington D.C., requires one to assign new meaning to well established words while willfully disbelieving what our lying eyes see. This is the hope of the Obama administration along with his supporters in congress, the media, interest groups and some in the general public

During the presidential campaign in 2008, then Senator Obama promised if elected to have the most open and transparent administration in the nation’s history. One can debate whether this promise was or was not kept
Here’s to more days of shirt sleeves, short shorts, sandals and sunglasses. Bring on the sun! Yes I know that this is not what the debate is about. I was not born yesterday, because If I were I might believe anything being said by those warning of the impending climatic tragedy due to man’s activities
If you will allow me some latitude with my understanding of pop culture, I will attribute the phrase, “Fo shizzle, my nizzle,” to the one and only Snoop Dogg. It may be a bit much to credit him with the use of forbidden language in all songs, but he surely made using the most politically incorrect word acceptable
It seems that something is missing between spoken words of political activists and the implementation of the policy which is advocated. If our best interest is the priority of policy ‘x’, then why is it we experience a negative result when the policy is initiated? Specifically, in the matter of education as oft stated, public education is best for the kids, as well as for the betterment of society. Without doubt, a parent’s
