President Obama’s speech tonight was just the prescription Health Care Reform needed and made me remember how he inspired me during the election. And Republican Rep. Joe Wilson who screamed, “YOU LIE!” in the midst of the speech was just the overdose the GOP needed to go into a coma. […]

Soon your President will give his speech to your schools, frightening really. The skies will turn dark, the sea will part and lighting bolts will crash to earth, be prepared. He is going to say how important education is for your future generations, how can he say that, how dare […]

The current backlash against President Obama, brought on by the attempt to pass health care reform, has obscured the legislative record of the past eight months. I took it upon myself to do a little research into the bills produced by congress and passed by the president since his inauguration, […]

Well, unprecedented if you don’t count Bush and Reagan, FDR, […]

With so much talk of people ready to renounce their support of President Obama if his speech next Wednesday, September 9th, does not satisfy, I’ve decided to post a piece I wrote upon my return from Denver last August. If your support for Obama is wavering, I hope it reminds […]

Asking kids to write a letter about how they can help the President means this: The President = the country = the communities in the country = the people who live in those communities = the families who are made up of those people = the kids who are part […]

I was at the speech Obama gave in Denver when he accepted the Dem nom. There was a moment in the speech when he said VERY loudly & FIRMLY: “ENOUGH!”. It stunned the crowd of 91k. We’d never heard him use that tone or that force. I don’t know how […]

I have to admit from what I see going on at the State Department I was wrong to think Hillary Clinton was the best choice as SOS. OK to let myself off the hook a bit I did support her as the #1 candidate with one caveat. I did say […]

Okay folks, this is do or die for President Obama in my mind. Will he come out swinging like Obama the candidate or mushing around in the middle as Obama the President has far too often. His first real speech on passing the Health Care Reform bill. I want to […]

Bill Moyers is possibly the last of the breed of journalists who carry the trust and respect of the people. If you didn’t see it last night, he used his show to host a screening of the film, based on the book, “Money Driven Medicine”.  As much as I’ve tried […]
