One of my favorite founding fathers has to be James Madison. If George Washington was the heart, Thomas Jefferson was the soul, and Ben Franklin was the conscience of the American revolution. Then James Madison was the brains of the Founding Fathers. He was the author of the U.S. Constitution. He wrote over 1/3 of the Federalist Papers. Read more »

I read this great article a while back and it devastated me. It totally made me question the use of my blog. My blog is what I like to think somewhat factual. If I don’t know the entire story I point that out to my readers. I try and see things both way. And I somewhat try and stay not partisan and above the fray. But this article in the Boston Globe called, ” How Facts Backfire” was pretty interesting. Read more »
I came across this article in the Daily Beast.com written by Loyd Grove called Bankers: Is Obama of this earth? It goes onto tell about a disastrous meeting between Obama, Warren Buffett and a group of bankers, green energy CEOs and Bill Clinton.
How’d it go?
“I think the people there are continually and constantly amazed at the sense of removal from reality in the administration when it comes to the economy,” this person said. “It was a meeting about greening and rehabbing buildings, and they seemed to think the banks will foot the bill for the effort. The feeling in that room was that there is nobody at the top of this administration, in the West Wing of the White House, who ever so much as sold a pair of shoes. Read more »
The website Wikileaks is all over the news for their leaking of 90,000 documents pertaining to the war in Afghanistan on their website. I have to admit that a while back I was played. I was made a fool by the U.S. government. As I was searching for material to write about I came across the articles that were trickling out at the time about how Pakistan was helping the Taliban.

But like an idiot I see a story at the same time about how Afghanistan “found” a trillion dollars worth of minerals in their country. I swallowed it hook line and sinker. Read more »

Sarah Palin said that Muslims should ‘refudiate’ a planned mosque near the World Trade Center site. Hmmmm…the problem is that’s not a real word. So, in her defense, Palin compared herself to William Shakespeare on Twitter when she tweeted: ‘Shakespeare liked to coin new words too. Get over it!” –Courtesy of RapWrites.wordpress.com
Everyone came out of the woodwork to blast Sarah Palin. On the Huffington Post it had over 8,000 comments. I’m not a Sarah lover but it led me to think about our Dear Leader President Barack Obama’s most infamous term. 57 States. Not 50. 57. Read more »

In what can only be a reality check for people who wonder why America’s War on Drugs makes no progress. Or why America has no interest in securing the southern border with Mexico.
