Flag Day 2010

Today is one of those "minor" holidays. No one gets the day off work because it's Flag Day and it's business as usual throughout the country. A few towns and cities across the nation have small parades or other community events to celebrate but it largely passes unnoticed by most Americans. And this "minor" holiday seems to become less important as the years go by.

The big question of the day, (at lest for me) is will President Obama observe this day? Will he even call attention to it?
But why would Obama care? He removed his American flag lapel pin. He doesn't hold his hand over
his heart during the playing of the anthem.
Forgetting to put on the flag pin is one thing. But making a "statement" by not wearing a flag pin is something else.
Does anyone need a reason for wearing a Flag pin? Well, let's see, how about if you are the President?

Jobless Claims Rise

The number of workers filing new applications for unemployment insurance rose unexpectedly last week, a report showed on Thursday, heightening fears the labor market recovery was stalling. Initial claims for state unemployment benefits increased 13,000 to a seasonally adjusted 472,000 in the week ended June 26, the Labor Department said. Analysts polled by Reuters had expected claims to slip to 452,000 from the previously reported 457,000, which was revised slightly up to 459,000 in the latest report.
Based on what I see, unemployment is not going to improve until 2011.

Stocks Retreat Again... Recovery? What Recovery?

Stocks tumbled again today after worse-than-expected readings on manufacturing, housing and the labor market exacerbated fears that the economy is heading for another recession.
The dollar was lower against the euro and the Japanese yen. Here we go again folks.

Obama's Agenda

Obama has his own agenda in place and there is nothing that is going to derail it from happening, he didn’t put healthcare on the back burn even as the economy remains fragile and unemployment remains high. I’m not at all that surprised that he is not going to focus anymore on the oil spill, he has higher priorities to worry about than a massive environmental and economic disaster.

Our Hope has Changed.

Apparently, the president of the United States doesn't have any reason to stay in his office and deal with the economy, unemployment, the devastation of our Gulf shorelines, Black Panthers intimidating voters, nonexistent border control, the war in Afghanistan, control in Iraq, Iran nukes, the safety of Israel and so on.

He doesn't even pretend like Clinton used to do, with that plaintive whine about how HARD he'd been working. Obama just gives us the finger and goes his merry way, enjoying being the king of the prom

The Liberals STILL just don't get it!

Scott Brown wasn't driving a pickup truck last night. He was driving a bulldozer and he drove it right through a little place called Camelot. When he was done he parked it right in the middle of that place, got out of the bulldozer, began walking away with his back to the bulldozer, pulled a detonation device out of his pocket and blew the whole damn place to hell!
There was even a guy named Kennedy on the ballot!
And I bet you liberals still won't get it...we don't want your entitlement crap, we here on the Right work for our money.
Now let’s kick ass in 2010

There are too many people, fanatics on both side, who base their vote on not on a candidate, but on who they hope their candidate will nominate to the Supreme Court on the supposition that a case may perhaps make it to the Court in the next four years that may have some national implications on this issue.

This is BS

Vote on foreign policy. Vote on national tax policy. Vote on deficit spending. Vote on going to Mars. Vote on something, anything, that actually belongs at the federal level.

Abortion, as divisive and poisonous issue as it is, should be left to the states, much like the death penalty. When we have a real national consensus on this issue, we can codify it at the national level. Until then, keep the federal government out of it. I do not want to be held hostage by the wackos that think pro-choicers enjoy having abortions or the wackos that think pro-lifers want women treated like barnyard animals
