The New Normal

By now, I'm sure you've probably given up on the New Year's resolution. But, that's all right. It was just too tough. That's how things are going to be in America now. If it involves too much work in order to achieve your dreams, they probably weren't meant to be. But that's okay, it's not your fault.

Income Inequality

If ever there were a place for the liberal argument regarding income inequality, it has to be applicable to the Bradley Center and request for a new arena. The taxpayers of the city and the surrounding counties are once again being asked to foot the bill for another sports venue. While people like Herb Kohl is sitting with hundreds of millions of dollars in his pockets, he feels absolutely no obligation to kick in any money for a new arena. As of today, I believe he still owns the team. The Milwaukee Bucks are also all millionaires. As are the coaches. Yet the taxpayers and middle class citizens are silent while being coerced into agreeing to raising their taxes and my taxes to pay for such a stadium. I often find it hard to understand for people to not pose a question on why they are obligated to build a workplace for a bunch of underachieving millionaires. The Milwaukee Bucks have the worst record in the NBA. Not that it matters, but why should the taxpayers agree to paying for this corporate welfare while the rest of our infrastructure such as schools and streets could make better use of the same amount of money? But when it comes to sports, people forget to raise the issue that this is also corporate welfare. These greedy 1%ers feel absolutely no obligation to evening knowledge what regular citizens are being requested of. But if this happens in the corporate world, people would take to the streets and feel justified. At the very least, it should be close to the same argument. In addition, what kind of wages are the people working inside this new arena going to received as a work again? Will they be making at least $15 an hour? Are they guaranteed health care coverage? Are they making a living wage in which to support their families? Compare this to what any of the Milwaukee Bucks and the coaching staff are earning and tell me if that's fair.

Let's Go To the Video

After a dozen years of fighting a war to make the world safe from terrorism, the liberal media is now beginning their campaign to make Iowa safe for Hillary. 60 min. has recently produced a story in an effort to get the viewer to believe that Susan Rice is hard-working, honest, and just putting it all on the line for the administration. More recently, the New York Times is produced a story trying to convince us dumb Americans that the attack on Benghazi was a result of a video. Again? Didn't we at least get to the point where we had a consensus that whatever video they were referring to was not the catalyst in the attack on the Consulate? Now, we have to exonerate Hillary. We have to exonerate Susan Rice. We have to exonerate any Democrats that are running for office either next year or in 2016. Although there slogan is, "whoever lies first, lies best." If it is repeated enough, people will believe it. Whether it's true or not. I shake my head in disgust because it's too unfortunate that people who want to become part of the ruling class thinks so little of the general American public. It's too bad that we are regarded as being so stupid. To paraphrase the Reverend Wright: God bless America? No, no, no, no, no. God help America.

Whatever Happened to ...???

Now that our latest budget and fiscal crisis is behind us nationally, the Democrats are taking victory laps believing that they have completely humiliated Republicans, conservatives, and anybody else they consider to be opposition. So, let's do a little follow-up. Let's see if the all-powerful, all-knowing, complete package Democrats have answers now to questions previously unanswered:

How can anyone discount the vindictiveness and contempt that this administration is now showing towards the American people? The government shutdown is not the first time that this is been demonstrated. President Barack Obama wants to make any interaction with the government during the shutdown as painful as possible. And for what reason?
