I think Big Al and Benett both touch on a important topic, especially here in California. If it is true that California democrats have a super majority now, our state will be the focus of which party’s beliefs our correct. There will be no stone walling or stone walling excuses… Read more »

I think it was Romney that said….look at the “state” the state of California if you want to see what the future of the entire US will look like under complete Democratic rule….I thought that was a great observation.

Did you see the 60 Minutes interview of Obama some weeks ago? Steve Croft asked him about his biggest disappointment. The President responded that it was the fact that in Washington, “Politics trumps problem solving.” There’s the problem. Everyone there on both sides of the aisle has to remember that… Read more »

Using executive orders to get things done is NOT how our government was designed to work. There is a reason for Congress…it’s so that the executive branch of the government does not over use it’s power to over ride the will of the people. Some thing must stand in the… Read more »

Yes, our democracy is about checks and balances. It is also about willingness to serve the public and get things done to benefit the public. Perhaps you did not see and hear Senator Mitch McConnell who declared several years ago that it was the Republicans’ mission to make sure the… Read more »

I have no idea what you are talking about. The only thing I see ruining our country is the system of big corporations giving politicians money to vote the way they want and elected officials with no character going along with it.

People say Obama is spending too much money. He’s not spending it. He’s paying for what Bush and Co. bought. Saying Obama is spending too much money is a fine example of “Romneysia”

In total agreement with you, Ken. President Obama inherited trumped-up wars created by Cheney and Co. (former CEOs of defense contractors – Lockheed Martin and Halliburton) against a country (Iraq) that had nothing to do with the 9/11 tragedy. Here’s how it works: Declare war, send in troops, and those… Read more »

America started going broke paying for two unwinnable, pointless wars that only made Dick and Lynne Cheney (former CEOs of defense contractors Halliburton and Lockheed Martin) even more filthy rich. Then American companies found out they can make products cheaper overseas.

It may surprise many of you, but Japan has bought almost as much debt as China. That’s what it means when people say, “…borrow from China, etc….” That really means that they have bought long term Treasury bonds. Anybody could buy them.
