Occupy Chicago Affirms Class Warfare

Occupy Chicago Affirms Class Warfare

This is an enlightening video report from the Wall Street Journal. Some of the Marxists who have left comments at this website over the last week have had the audacity to claim they really aren’t for Marxism and against the free market, but their signs and statements reveal otherwise. The Chicago pack has begun approving official “demands” which include repealing the Bush tax cuts and prosecuting the “criminals” who caused the 2008 meltdown. Will they begin with Barney Frank?

RomneyCare and ObamaCare: The Same Bad Prescription

RomneyCare and ObamaCare: The Same Bad Prescription

Rick Perry isn’t my first or even second choice for president of the United States, for a number of reasons. But there are some areas where he definitely gets it right, and one of them is RomneyCare. This state-level, prototype version of ObamaCare is almost identical to ObamaCare in every important way–and all of them are bad.

Occupy DC Versus Tea Party

Occupy DC Versus Tea Party

This is a great video from the Daily Caller showing some of the Marxists at the “Occupy Wall Street”-inspired “Occupy DC” event telling us what they believe…as best as they understand what they believe. We also see a Tea Party patriot mixing with with the Marxists and not receiving a very friendly reception.

Journalists and the Non-Smear Smear

Journalists and the Non-Smear Smear

Those who know me understand that I’m not a big Rick Perry fan. Perry is far too weak in the area of illegal immigration and some other things to be what I would consider a good Republican candidate for president. But when I witness what can only be characterized as journalistic ineptitude or journalistic malpractice, I can’t stand idly by and watch even a candidate I don’t like be smeared and besmirched. A case in point occurred Saturday at the Rapid City Journal’s blog Mount Blogmore, when “journalist” David Montgomery attempted to smear Rick Perry as a threat to the First Amendment and U.S. Constitution.

Onward, Christian Soldiers

Onward, Christian Soldiers

Liberals are nervous. They should be. As the 2012 election grows closer a soft rumble builds throughout thousands of Evangelical Christian churches across America. Pastors and churchgoers alike are waking up to the disturbing reality that we as a nation have strayed drastically from our historical Judeo-Christian moorings. John Adams, our second president, once said, “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”

What Happened This Summer?

What Happened This Summer?

This summer many things that should do better over a long-term investment strategy did not. This situation is not unusual for one quarter’s worth of time. Such a result only makes reversion to the mean much more likely in the coming quarters. It is always a good time to have a balanced portfolio. And you shouldn’t let a summer quarter’s correction ruin a brilliant long-term investment philosophy.

The odds not good when it comes to winning the ‘biggie’

The odds not good when it comes to winning the 'biggie'

Legalized gambling was supposed to be the key to unlock South Dakota’s financial crisis. While it has become a major contributor to the state’s purse, it has been discovered that contribution isn’t as big as the state officials who started video lottery thought it would be. South Dakota’s smoking ban is being blamed for the so-called loss. In other words, keeping down the state’s profits. Thus there will be a move to erase the smoking ban from the state’s books.
