Thank You, Media!

Thank you, CNBC, for drawing attention to the fact that the media is so biased against anybody not liberal. I think the moderators did a fine job of demonstrating that in blatant fashion during the last GOP debate. Although not particularly supportive of  a Ted Cruz candidacy in the past, I applaud his quickly [but well] thought-out response to the nonsensical and [often] inflammatory line of questioning aimed at the candidates. This is indicative of not only the NBC family, in my opinion, but many other media outlets as well. It is time we stop pandering to liberal concerns whose agenda is to grow government more and more with each new "program" of giveaways at the working person's expense. It's easy to be generous with other people's money, isn't it? Social safety-nets are nice and should be required of any civilized society to some degree, but when we make it attractive not to put effort into finding a job, something is wrong. Quite often, in many situations, that is exactly what we do these days with our abundance of programs for the underprivileged and folks who just need a break. I can remember when churches and local communities took care of those needs.

We have so many issues to address in this country that are vital and very much time-sensitive, that to waste time with debates where questions arise about fantasy football is nothing short of pathetic. Thanks again, media, for bringing this shortcoming squarely to our attention!

Hopefully, the next debate on the Fox Business Network will actually provide some substantive answers to questions we need to know more about in regard to our candidates.

By the way, I wholeheartedly concur with those who say that any of those candidates wold make a better president than Hillary Clinton. Any of them.

Treason or Patriotism?

Many years ago, the Democrats couldn't wait to get all of the facts surrounding Watergate out in the public eye. The Washington Post has been celebrated as a bastion of the free press recently in a movie (which we have yet to see, but plan to).


Now, the idea of releasing a memo that may indicate wrong-doing on the part of the FBI and DOJ is hailed as treasonous by some who would prefer the secrets remain secrets. I have seen or heard of nothing in the recently released memo that would appear to compromise national security -- have you?

Hate Speech

The amount of vitriol directed at President Trump seems to be unprecedented. At least, that is what those on the right seem to think. Of course, I remember plenty of criticism and hate speech hurled at President Obama during his time in office, as well. I don't think I really need to mention President George W. Bush, do I?

There has never been (in my lifetime) such a level of animosity between opposing viewpoints as I see in today's America. Democrats hurl murderous accusations against the Republicans for their healthcare proposals and those of a conservative view sling accusations of incompetence and hypocrisy back at them. Of course, either side is generally pretty good at documenting their accusations with freshly spun 'facts.'

No matter where you fit into the political spectrum, it is important to note that such contention is counter-productive. Whenever people react at the behest of their emotions, clear-headed and rational decisions are nowhere to be found. Moreo…

Comey Testimony

It's been a while since I have seen the kind of hype that there has been around having Director Comey testify in front of the Senate today. It seems worse than Watergate! There also seems to be no evidence thus far except for of the here-say variety .

No less than 5 times did he call President Trump (or his administration) a liar. Aside from what that does to the office of the President, it takes away from getting things done that so desperately need to get done. Now, please don't misunderstand, if there has been serious wrongdoing on the part of the Trump administration, then they need to be called out on it. We have already recently had 8 years of "anything-but-transparency" in Washington.

Reading the New York Times would lead one to the conclusion that this was a bad day for the Trump administration. I'm not so sure of that. I'm not huge fan of the President, but have to say that I did not hear anything qualifying as evidence to bring about impeachment pro…
