Hey Abbott

Hey Abbott, What About Those Unemployment Numbers?
Many folks as well as TV anchor men and radio talk show hosts are using the government's figures for unemployment. Most recently, 7.3-7.4% depending on to whom you are listening. Every month, the figure is eagerly awaited by politicians, unions, and strategists. It is an important figure to them, a figure to bounce around the court of public opinion and toss around on political fields of play. A 1/10th change either way benefits one party over the other, one host over another and one TV anchor man over his competition.
Come to think of it, this figure really has nothing to do with the real unemployment in this country, but when such a statement is made, Americans are astounded. Why not, they ask. What they don't understand is how the figure is produced, but the manner and means of its production can be extremely confusing and complicated. It is meant to be in order to keep Americans in the dark.
However, some very famous persons…

America's Waterboy Media

AMERICA'S MEDIA AND ITS EFFECT ON US



For decades now, the mainstream media has drastically presented whatever liberal slant they desire on the news and important issues of the day to the point that Americans are no longer privy to the pertinent facts. These media have either omitted the real facts, purposely misinformed, fabricated information, mocked proven facts, or outrightly printed or televised false information in order to confuse or deliberately sway the public for political gain of one party. Their biased reporting has, in effect, disrupted the balance of American individualism and prosperity and allowed the nation to drift toward a socialist welfare society where dependency on the government is being rewarded and hard work and entrepreneurship is punished. The abundance of the recent lies, printed or voiced,from certain organizations and journalists and from this administration, such as Obama's statements regarding Americans being able to keep their insurance and doc…

Listen to Us, America!!

For those of you who don't know what an icebox is, today they are electric and  referred to as refrigerators. A few even remember when cars were started with a crank.
Yes, we lived those days. We are probably considered old fashioned and out-dated by many. But there are a  few things you need to remember before completely writing us off. We won World War II, fought in Korea and Viet Nam. We can quote The Pledge of Allegiance, and know where to place our hand while doing so. We wore the uniform of our country with pride and lost many friends on the  battlefield. We didn't fight for the Socialist States of America, we fought for the "Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave." We wore different uniforms but carried the same flag. We know the words to the Star Spangled Banner, America, and  America the Beautiful by heart, and you may even see some tears running down our cheeks as we sing. We have lived what many of you have only read about in history books and we feel no obli…

Is This What "Being More Flexible" Means???

"Barack Obama announced a series of sanctions against officials in Russia who he claims have played a role in the continued unrest in the Crimean peninsula of Ukraine. The move came one day after a majority voters in the region supported a referendum to unite with Russia. On Monday, Obama said the U.S. would not recognize the referendum. He went on to blame a number of officials within the Russian government for the development. “We are imposing sanctions on specific individuals for undermining the sovereignty, territorial integrity and government of Ukraine,” he asserted. “We are making it clear that there are consequences for their actions.”
The White House – along with numerous media outlets – is touting the sanctions as a direct response to Russian President Vladimir Putin. While Putin is not named directly in Obama’s reaction, a White House statement indicates the U.S. will “seek to hold accountable individuals who use their resources or influence to support or act on behalf …

Once, Also A Gun Free Zone!

Many of you may think this not possible here in America! Many of you may well be wrong  if we allow the Constitution to be ravaged!

The American Rule Should Be Eliminated

In Jackson, Ohio, The ACLU brought suit for just 5 individuals against the school system for having painting of Jesus on the wall. It had been there for 50 years. The school removed it because the suit would have cost $2M in attorney fees even if they won. This is an example of the American Rule and why it should be abolished.
Have you even heard of the “American Rule?” I suspect very few folks have ever heard of this entity, but they do know what it is. Essentially it states that each side of a civil legal case is responsible for its own court costs no matter the outcome of the litigation. I also suspect very few know exactly how this came about as well.
The Treaty of Paris, ending the American Revolution, specified that the British could sue new America citizens for debts owed them. To make it more difficult to do so, state legislatures passed a law know as “The American Rule.” This law made it more improbable that the British would sue for their debts since they would need to…
