HR 1388 – The Beginning of the Brown Shirt Brigades?

obama-ss-flagMany of you may remember my initial rant against O’prompter and Emanuel’s proposed Mandatory Civilian National Defense Force. I wrote about it way back in November, here (you can click it if you want, it should open a new window, not leave this one). I kind of left the subject alone for a while because it didn’t seem like there was anything going on with it. But I got a call last week from Revolution who told me to go and check out HR 1388. So I did, and what do I find? It isn’t being left alone at all! On March 18, the House of Representatives passed by a vote of 321-105 (a bi-partisan vote) HR1388– The Generations Invigorating Volunteerism and Education Act (The GIVE Act). And somehow this isn’t making big news the way it should. 
The beginning of the Obama Youth?

More of the Traveling Magic Show

aig-logoI have listened to the news for the last couple of days swirl on about the bonuses being paid to executives from troubled insurance giant AIG. I understand that many of you are upset with AIG. I do get that we are seeing a company get bailed out with Billions of dollars of US Taxpayer money. And I do get that the contracts of these executives awarded them large bonuses that you don’t think are fair. I don’t think they are fair either. Let’s get that out of the way. But, my friends it is time to put a little perspective into play here. And once we have some perspective we can ask ourselves what is the real game afoot?

Hurry Up and Wait….

Those of you who have dealt with the government in any fashion, especially the military veterans out there, have heard that phrase a million times. It is used to describe the government process. Be fast and efficient now so that the government can then sit on its collective laurels and make you wait. In the military it is the equivalent of being told to show up for a 3:00 pm doctors appointment at 11:15 am. And we are hearing it every single day in the new Obama administration. And there is a reason for that.

Chicago Stinks… and We aren’t talkin about the Cubs

I initially told myself that I wasn’t going to write about this subject. “Too much of a layup” I said. “Too easy to take a shot at this” I told my friends. But see that is the beauty for a guy like me, who spent most of his youth getting rejected by basketball players far better than I. A layup is an awfully inviting thing. I mean it is a slam dunk in the box score, right? So I am taking the shot, and letting myself vent on not only sleazy Illinois Governor Blagojevich, but the entire Chicago machine, which I think once or twice has given us a national figure…..
The Chicago Machine is Back…and in Power?

Cabinet Positions are Too Tough to Keep up With!

I had a request tonight for a running update on the selections for the President Elect’s Cabinet. Initially this looked like a good post topic, as I have had a lot of people calling me to ask about the people selected. While others have no idea who I am talking about when I mention one. However after some contemplation, I have decided to not do separate posts for these picks. They would simply be too long and update too often. I have instead decided to have a page up there at the top of the blog where the picks will be updated as they are announced along with my thoughts and analysis on each one. The page will be titled “Obama’s Cabinet Picks”. We can have discussions there around the picks and it will keep that page right up here near the top where it needs to be. So Check it out as it gets updated over the next couple of days and learn who these folks are that are being chosen to be in Obama’s new Cabinet.

I Always Felt Farrakhan Would Bring Whites and Blacks Together Too

We all know “Calypso Louis” (yes he was a successful calypso singer until the Nation of Islam banned members from being musical performers). “Minister” Farrakhan made our hearts warm and fuzzy with his great hits “Kill Whitey”, “Raise up Against the White Devil”, and “Dirty Jews injected blacks with the AIDS virus”. Such classic hits from a man who has lived a life hating anyone who isn’t black and muslim. So he is the perfect choice for a new cabinet position for repairing race relations. OK, I jest. But I don’t jest when I say one of the most partisan members of Congress is our next Chief of Staff. Rahm Emanuel is as partisan a Democrat as any I have seen. Let’s meet the man, shall we?
