The Obama Doctrine – Think, Feel, Act

There is a new sheriff in town.  He has decided to round up the rascals in Lybia.  President Obama is not inclined to act on feelings of insecurity – as we witnessed in the immediate past Administration.  Presidential Doctrine has been a subject of debate for about as long as there have been Presidents.  We […]

A Soldier’s Funeral, A Sour War

We Americans should never forget the cost of War. And the death of a soldier warrants more than an incremental ticker on Page Two B

Why Fear Matters

Al Quaeda, the terrorist organization founded and run by Osama Bin Laden, has set the standard of values for many of the radical right wing in America.  Do unto others as they have done unto you seems the common refrain – a refrain based in fear.   This is a remarkable mentality given two precepts […]

Dick Cheney’s Pre-Existing Condition

To say that a snow storm in Washington D. C. proves there is no global warming is like saying that Dick Cheney received good health care proves there is no need for health care reform.  Cheney has had five heart attacks – the first when he was in his late thirties.  He has changed jobs […]

Letterman Defines Difference Between Himself and Leno

Dave Letterman is a classic comic. His timing is near perfect – but his willingness to take on controversial topics nears courageous – even at the expense of his own reputation. Dave tackles the topic of the difference between himself and Jay Leno. Listen for the joke on Dick Cheney:

Cheney Is Afraid Of The Rule Of Law

Dick Cheney is speaking this morning, again.  But this time he is not being interviewed – he is giving a prepared speech.  His words are designed to discredit the President of the United States – something he abhorred when his President was in office.  Cheney continues to manipulate information to suit his needs – we […]

Radical Fanatics Are A Threat To America’s Safety

There is not a nickel’s worth of difference between the Left Wing Radicals of the 1960’s and contemporary Right Wing Radical fanatics. Both groups talk of revolution. Both groups oppose the government of The United States of America. Both groups have representatives who intentionally terrorize America. Both groups are responsible for the fear and hate and divisiveness that grips our country in troubled times.

The Two-Edged Sword of Justice

President Obama demonstrates his wisdom. He is reluctant to pursue charges against Bush administration officials for possible war crimes conducted during their ‘war on terror.’ Justice is a funny thing – and the Constitutional Lawyer in Barack Obama speaks to him of justice – but his maturity speaks to him of the bitterness of vengeance.

Monetary Worth of Bush and Cheney

It seems to this writer that when George W. Bush entered the White House he had a net worth of about $21 Million.  I don’t recall ever hearing the worth of Dick Cheney.  When a public servant enters an office like President or Vice President they put their assets in a blind trust.  Someone else […]

Trust God, But Lock Your Car

The finger pointing has only just begun, and there is reason this is so.  People across this country have been devastated by the collapse of our economy.  The natural stages of grief have kicked in.  The initial stage is denial (John McCain said the fundamentals of the economy are sound).  Denial is followed quickly by […]

Obama, Cheney, Gitmo, and the Founding Fathers

In the beginning there was a revolution. Talk of revolution whispered through the ranks of community leaders. The whispering was necessary because if King George III heard of the treasonous acts he would have the perpetrators jailed, and the possibly deported to some far off prison colony – all with out the benefit of due process. The leaders finally agreed on revolution, a Declaration of Independence was drafted, and the participants secretly stole into Philadelphia to sign the now historic document.

Bush and Cheney are WMD’s

George W. Bush, mixed with equal amounts of Dick Cheney, produces Weapons of Mass Destruction. These two men, more than Saddam Hussein or Osama Bin Laden, have themselves destroyed mass numbers of humans. And about 5,000 of the dead are American service men. We can not even begin to count the number of innocent Iraqi’s killed in a war of vengeance.

The lethal combination of Bush and Cheney needed only a spark of inflamation. The entire Republican Party has bought into this mixture of vengeance and lusts after another opportunity to mix their potions of destruction.

The Need for Healthy Children to Fight Our Wars

The marvel of conservative inconsistency continues hacking away at the forest of civilization. The forest has become so important that they have forgotten that it is comprised of individual trees. IN this case the individual trees are our children – our future soldiers. Stop abortion, but don’t offer the newborn health care. Protect the lives […]

Iraq Surge, Republican Purge

The country has become bloated on the red meat of Republican leadership and politics.  In desperation the voters are running to the secrecy of their voting booth to purge the atrocities. We live in Punkin Center, Missouri.  We are in the 6th Congressional District.  The three term Republican Congressman Sam Graves, a gentleman farmer, is […]

The GOP Legacy – Wars, Death, Hatred, Socialism

This is a banner year in American Politics.  This is the year when the people rise up and crucify the self serving, greedy, power and control, mean spirited Republicans.  That was a mouthful, don’t you think.  It is written in the spirit of McCainian Anger.  The American people should be angry.  WARNING to readers – […]

The Marines in Iraq

What is it about Marines that make them so special?  When called upon to serve they do not ask why – they merely pack their bags and go.  They do what is asked of them.  They believe in their hearts that their missions are honorable – that they are in the service of America. How […]

Vice Presidents – how do we measure

There is a big hoopla about Alaska Governor Sarah Palin as the Republican Vice Presidential nominee.  Why don’t we measure Governor Palin against past Vice Presidents?  Let’s take a look at the last seven. Dick Cheney Al Gore Dan Quayle George H. W. Bush Walter Mondale Gerald Ford Nelson Rockefeller Rank these people in terms […]

Conservatives of 2008 – Raping and Pillaging

Something is way out of whack in the logic of the Conservatives of 2008. The logic is guilt or honor by association. The logic goes something like this: “I believe in Jesus and I believe we should drill for more oil in our backyard.” Thus given that Jesus is a solid belief it follows that […]

Subliminal Bush

In a previous post here on The Fireside, we mentioned the press conference with the President where he discussed WWIII in the context of Iran. I thought it might be beneficial to see the clip for ourselves: “I take the threat of Iran with a nuclear weapon very seriously.” I guess that would account for […]

U.S. Economy or Iraq Economy – Bush choses Iraq

Son, Our economy is at the worst state in twenty years.  The candidates for president and the folks in Congress are talking about what to do. How contemptible!  What have they been thinking about?  How much money are we spending in Iraq?  And how might that money might be used to save the U.S. Economy? […]

Thompson is running for Vice President

Son, Fred Thompson is running for Vice President. He wants to restore the office to one of ceremony and afternoon naps. And you know what? That does not sound so bad after watching the current leadership. I started writing this as a joke but as I think about it someone like Fred would be a […]

Ron Paul and Paulaholics attack Lincoln.

Son, Ron Paul is on the telephone with the Morning Joe folks. He is arguing that Lincoln is part of the “Hamiltonians who wanted a strong central government. Why did all other nations get rid of slavery without a civil war.” Asked of Paul, “How long should slavery have gone on? What was Abraham Lincoln […]
