So I’m out on my driveway washing my car last weekend, when my neighbor walks by. He is an old Chinese guy in his late 90s. I see him often, making his way to the corner and back, a distance of about 40 yards. The round trip takes him about […]

Ed Koch when he was Mayor Koch use to ask that very question to New Yorkers walking down the streets of New York quite often. Now Mr. Koch says he has “never been more terrified. (with Obama as president)” In a exceptionally self contradictory tirade about President Obama’s foreign policy […]

The numbers appear to be leaked by The White House, 30,000 more troops for Afghanistan. Some of the buzz from the MSM is that Pres. Obama will present this as a part of a plan for winning in Afghanistan and that we should be out by the end of his […]

President Obama is going to announce his plans for Afghanistan after Thanksgiving. It may be ironic that by then we will be done giving thanks. Word right now is that the military anticipates over 30,000 more soldiers being sent there. Pres. Obama will present his decision and reasoning to the […]

There’s this site I know, you may have heard of it. It starts with an H as in “Hell”. They have a story up right now as their top screaming headline, quoting CBS that President Obama has decided to send 40,000 troops to Afghanistan. In the meantime, CBS News has […]
