EXTREME OBAMITE CLEVERNESS (EOC) – WE MUST LIE TO GET PAST CBO AND THE STUPID AMERICAN VOTER

TROUBLE ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF HISTORY


I keep thinking about Barack Obama’s dilemma represented by his “thumping,” his “mega-defeat.”  (That’s not me talking: those are the words of the veteran Democratic strategist James Carville, so don’t anyone go accusing me of racism, or something.)  What is … Continue reading

AMERICA’S NAVY: A GLOBAL FORCE FOR GOOD

YOUR RETIREMENT MONEY REDISTRIBUTED (RERUN)
