      posted in 2012 & Contributor & Politics & Government & Uncategorized

      Although the polls show the presidential campaigns neck and neck, the facts continue to look negative for Barack Obama.

    • The Significance of Party Platforms - 19 Sep 2012
      posted in Contributor & Politics & Government

      House Speaker John Boehner was quoted during the Republican National Convention as saying, “Have you ever met anybody who read the Party platform?

      “Mr. President, why do you favor foreign workers over Americans?” That was the obvious question Barack Obama refused to answer when a reporter, doing his job, sought an answer rather than a canned teleprompter presentation. That is, indeed, the question that begs for an answer. And Obama simply wouldn’t answer [...]

      posted in Contributor & Debt & National & Politics & Government

      One of the ways to cut the big-spending binge engaged in by the federal government is to terminate the racket of college loans. It’s counterproductive, discriminatory, and a bad investment for both taxpayers and students. College-loan debt has soared to nearly a trillion dollars, more than credit-card debt or auto-loan [...]
