D'ya Think??  

Hold on to your hats!! I am about to agree with something our glorious leader said. In talking about the National Debt and the Debt Limit, he laid the blame on the congress, those who control the purse strings. He was right (partly).
An AP article in the Jan. 20 Tampa Tribune informs us that the Affordable Care Act helps narrow the income gap between rich and poor.
It would seem that the Anointed One's Chief Skin Merchant, (Eric Holder - in case you were wondering) doesn't like the way North Carolina wants to run its elections.
The highway trust fund is running out of money and we need to do something to get the funding back up to a point where we will be able to maintain our Interstate highway system.
With tens of thousands of golf enthusiasts descending on North Carolina over the next two weeks for the 2014 U.S. Open and the U.S. Women's Open, the state has worked hard to make sure they will have a great and unique experience.
Have you been wondering why Eric Holder and his Justice Department has been too busy to investigate a lot of troublesome things going on in our Government or respond to congressional inquiries in any kind of reasonable time frame??
Patronage in the Federal Government is not "dead" as we have been led to believe. And "patronage" is not the sole purview of either party.
Times change. Things change. In the old days government employees who violated their trust got fired. No "ifs", "ands", or "buts".
There was an interesting AP generated article in the Tampa Tribune on Mother's Day (5/11/14). It was headlined "Pregnant women gain new options".
The Anointed One's administration is about to propose some changes to the Government's dietary guidelines.
An AP article appearing in the April Fools Day (4/1/2014 - the timing seems appropriate) Tampa Tribune indicated that the U.S. was considering the release of Jonathan Pollard, a former U.S. Navy intelligence analyst, who was arrested in 1985 and convicted of spying for Israel.
So good 'ol Hillary gets a shoe thrown at her. It missed. She was giving the keynote address at the Las Vegas meeting of the Institute of Scrap and Recycling Industries.
Here we go again. Or maybe I should say "Here they go again". "They" would be the Anointed One and his merry group of sycophants led by Ms. Reid's boy, Harry and Ms. Schumer's boy, Charlie.
We are hearing a lot about bullying lately. Its in our schools. Its in our work places. Its on the roads.
I suppose it's a good thing that several years ago we decided on a not-for-profit company (now Vidant) to take over the Washington Hospital and subsequently seemingly everything else "medical" in the County.
It was about 2 years ago when we were hearing what a good chance Mitt Romney had of being our next President.
It is not clear just how it is that our Representatives and Senators manage to come up with all the ideas they seem to come up with for all new laws they seem to think of.
In case you haven't noticed, the Tonight Show has changed. Long time host Jay Leno is gone. He has been replaced by Jimmie Fallon whose late - late night show used to follow the Leno Tonight Show on NBC..
Our Imperial Savior said in a New York Times interview last year that there was "no evidence" the Keystone pipeline would be a "big jobs generator," claiming it might create 2,000 jobs in the construction phase but far fewer permanent jobs.
It's interesting. As we watch the Obamacare implementation fiasco play out, the ineptitude of the people who specified, designed and built the site is simply amazing.
We spent about ten years in Iraq and left a lot of American blood on the ground and a lot of the long green in the pockets of the politicos.
The Reps are about to do it to themselves again. Things seem to be going their way and then they shoot themselves in the foot - again... Pretty much all in the name of standing on principles.
If you didn't listen to the Prez's speeches, you wouldn't know what it means to be a good American.
We hear a lot of folks pressing for a change in the Constitution to incorporate a "Balanced Budget Amendment". The argument is based on the belief that such an amendment would force the Congress to rein its profligate spending habits. It certainly sounds like a winner.
The White House (whoever that is) is quoted as telling all the world that restraint needs to be exercised by "all parties" to the unpleasantness between Israel and the Palestinians in the Gaza Strip.
Here we go again. The conservatives (read Republicans) are taking a beating again.
Did you ever take out a loan to buy a house?? If not, how about a loan to buy a vehicle??
Almost every day we hear the Anointed One making some grand pronouncement about something or other. Invariably he is "backed up" by folks who would seem to be from the constituency he seems to be romancing that particular day.
What do you suppose ever happened to "Global Warming".
