Obama Gives a Graceful Speech

ObamaEulogy

I have always thought that Obama would be remembered as an excellent president. He was able to pass health care legislation, ended two wars he didn’t start, saved the economy from collapse, created 12 million new jobs, and ended don’t ask don’t tell. He is the first president to support same-sex marriage, a position the…

My Tribute to Dave

Letterman

I’m not sure the first time I became aware of David Letterman. It was probably when he took over the 12:30 slot from Tom Snyder on NBC. A move that somewhat irritated me because unlike many others I liked Snyder. He had funny hair and asked crazy questions. He was kind of a goof. Luckily…

Real Patriotism Forgotten

Mark Twain

I have wondered for some time what patriotism means to people. Based on the political ideology of the right I’m afraid many people do not understand the meaning of true patriotism any more. Many people feel it is a lapel pin. Obama once said he stopped wearing a lapel pin of the flag because, “it…

Comcast and Time Warner Cable the two biggest cable companies are trying to become one. I’d like to have someone explain to…

Canceling Cable and the Asshole Dance

TWC

Yesterday for the first time I switched from Time Warner Cable to AT&T for my television and Internet needs. It was not easy. There have been many stories on the web about the machinations these companies go through to keep you as a subscriber. Here’s one that’s funny and scary at the same time. The…

Congress Trying to Undo Net Neutrality

Upton and Walden

Recently I wrote a post about congress trying to mess with the FCC ruling that saved Net Neutrality. My worry was that once again the consrvatives in congress wold try and undo a decision they didn’t like, especially one that placed the interests of the middle class above those of their corporate benefactors. Well, it’s…

Giuliani Loses His Mind

Giuliani

What was former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani thinking when he said that Barack Obama the President of the United States didn’t love America? He along with Scott Walker were at a fund raising event that was supposed to be private when he made his remarks. Maybe he thought no one would notice. However,…
