Tuesday Chat

Time to speed up the process alittle. I’m still curious about the Sequester mess that is all over the news. The way the MSM and the White House makes it out to be, this 2% cut in future spending is going to cause all the problems that Obama has been railing about. Is Obama lying again?  Probably a dumb question.  On another note, the Republicans have been rather useless, but then again, the MSM don’t give them much air time.  Should we not hold each MSM outlet accountable by calling them out?

Guest Commentary – Cloak and Dagger Taxes Again

Tonight we welcome back a regular contributor and someone who I am hoping to add to SUFA as a regular writer once I get my world settled down and can really get focused again. Jon Smith brings us an issue that at first glance might have been too local to be appreciated by everyone. However, after reading through it, and doing a bit of my own research, it is clear that this is a good topic for discussion. While the course of action in the article is clearly a Virginia state issue, the concept of what is being done is something that is being mirrored in many ways on many products in many states. We have all had our discussions here at SUFA around government and the crooked ways that they do thing. Whether you like or don’t like the concept of taxes, I would like to think that we can all agree that transparency is something we are owed as the citizens.

What is the REAL State of the Political Landscape?

GOP Dead LogoTonight I sat here and thought for quite a while about what I wanted to write about for tonight’s topic. I read all kinds of articles, and hadn’t decided on a topic as of 1:45 am. But I did notice a common theme in articles throughout the different news sites and blogs out there. There were a ton of articles that discussed the upcoming elections that are occurring as you read this. And they all had an opinion one way or another as to what the results from this election will mean going forward. Obviously the results will be interpreted and then given a biased spin by all sides. But the key question seems to be whether what looks like it could be a bad day for Democratic Candidates is a sign of the future or a message being sent to the Democrats. I find that interesting. What message exactly do the national folks think it sends when the races are being determined by such a small percentage of the national population?
What Will Today’s Elections Tell US?

A New Social(ist) Standard…No more “F”s

So I started the thread the other night to discuss the public education system in America. We didn’t even get a couple of days away from that and this new story pops up in the news today. Remember how we discussed the fact that we eliminate sports games so that there are no winners and losers? Wel now there are no failures in the academic portion of school as well. When will we stop coddling our children and teach them what the real world holds?
