US politics remains divided: A razor may be sharper than an ax, but it cannot cut wood

Bye-bye 2014, welcome 2015!  US politics has been very consistently divided, Democrats vs. Republicans. As a result, nothing is accomplished. What will I remember about American politics in 2014? The US Democrats lost their majority in the US Senate. Surprise? Not a big surprise, because traditionally a second term president’s party loses elections due to […]

America has lost its last World War I veteran. Not only did he serve in WWI, he also served in World War II and was a Japanese prisoner of war.  Frank Buckles died after his 110th birthday.

Democrats trying to prove their effectiveness: He who is always in a hurry to get things done never gets them done right

The more we are approaching the November mid-term elections, the more that Democrats are in hurry. Nancy Pelosi and her “gang” are reorganizing to kill the Republican party’s hope to take control of the Congress. Honestly, what should we expect from the Democrats if they have been unable to achieve much while in control of […]

President Obama should not support the mosque: If you ignore your own relatives, you will serve the outsiders

Sometimes silence is the best attitude in the face of controversy. As President of the United States, President Obama shouldn’t express his opinion about anything that is controversial. His latest “faux pas” — giving his opinion about the building of a mosque near ground zero — has added fuel to the fire. It is good to […]

Rory Reid is Scared of His Name: It is possible to kill a man but it is impossible to kill his name.

To differentiate himself from his unpopular father, the son of Harry Reid — Rory — is using his first name in the race for governor of Nevada. Harry Reid has not only become a symbol of the love story between drug lobbyists and Washington, but also one of the Senate unable to get things done for the American […]

Obama forgives Harry Reid: When your neighbor is wrong you point a finger, but when you are wrong you hide.

The attitude of people of color who do not feel offended by Senator Harry Reid‘s racist comments about President Obama is incomprehensible. Clearly, there is a double standard. When a racist comment comes from the GOP, the media makes it a big deal, whereas when a Democrat makes a racist comment, an apology is enough to […]

Health care reform: Success is a ladder which cannot be climbed with hands in your pockets.

The health care reform debate has left the Democratic party fractured despite the announcement by the Senate majority leader that they have reached the 60 votes needed to pass this bill. There is no doubt that they will be politically rewarded at the end of this long and painful war. Howard Dean, the ex-Democratic party […]
