Libya Liberated?

Word on the street is Barack Obama’s extra-constitutional (and might I say, hypocritical) entrance into Libya has paid off as dictator, murderer, and all-around shady character Muammar al-Qaddafi’s regime all but completely collapsed as rebels have taken control of Tripoli and other major cities. Just listen to the glowing report from President Obama: “The future…

Terrorism: Redefined?

For those individuals living in a cave on September 11th, 2001, I would like to introduce a few groups that the U.S. State Department deems as “foreign terrorist organizations.” I thought that by doing so, it might help people understand the true meaning of the word “terrorism. There are 48 on the foreign list: We’ll…

The Equal Distribution of Mediocrity

I was met with an interesting exchange today. I had a chance to ask someone I know to be a devoted Democrat, whether or not they would vote for Barack Obama again after everything we’ve seen thus far. Skyrocketing unemployment. Stock market roller coaster rides. A credit downgrade.  An exploding national debt. I didn’t bring any…

“I inherited….a AAA credit rating…”

For the first time in U.S. History, our financial standing in the world has been downgraded. Our credit rating was given the boot by Standard and Poor’s, (“S&P”) after repeated warnings of the possibility.  Our AAA credit rating, since its establishment in 1917, has endured World War I, the Great Depression, FDR’s big-spending presidency,  World…

The Soup Lines of the 21st Century

The markets plummeted yesterday in the worst single day slump since 2008. All the while, the President continues to blame everyone and everything but his own ideas. It must be hard for the mainstream media; after all, they must be running out of ways to excuse away his policy failures. I suppose after two “recovery”…

The Great Debt Debate

As promised, an analysis of the outcome of the debt debate! Obama got his debt ceiling hike, and Republicans got their cuts….or did they? I want to put a few things in perspective before I start throwing the words billion and trillion around like confetti. Consider this: A million seconds ago, it was July 22,…

Good Enough?

I’ve got a post ready that I’ll  publish a little later on in which I do a little explaining of the debt deal that was just passed today. Meanwhile, I feel the immediate need as a concerned young woman; as a concerned young American, to vent. This deal is no good, people. Please come back and read…

Baseline Funny Business

While I sit contemplating the yet-to-be-passed-in-the-Senate debt deal, I feel that many people mulling over this compromise lack an understanding of exactly what the proposed “cuts” in the bill mean. It’s not hard to see why. Most individuals, when constructing a household budget, do not typically plan ahead to spend more than what’s coming in.…
