Meme Watch – Our Failing Economy And The World War II “Cure”.

Share Button

A Conservative friend on facebook posted a familiar refrain about how FDR’s New Deal policies did not get us out of the Great Depression, that only occurred as a result of World War II. Being a bit of a history buff, I have to challenge that widely repeated assertion. First, lets define an economic depression: […]

“Crooked” Hillary?

Share Button

As a guy who holds a degree in radio / video / film production, the election season is always a fun time for me. There is so much propaganda out there to dissect, it’s hard to decide where to begin. But sometimes, things fall into your lap. Here’s one about “Crooked” Hillary Clinton, and her […]

Why The Conservative Movement Is Becoming Irrelevant. (Meme watch – us poor folk should be grateful Mitt Romney has eleven houses or whatever)

Share Button

Do you want to know why the Conservative Republican Party is marching toward irrelevance? This statement from a January 4th article captures a snap-shot of their state of mind: “The truth is that income inequality is of minimal importance in a nation like America, where so many people already move between classes, where the poor […]

Mandela Wanted To “Kill The Whites!”….

Share Button

Um… No. He didn’t. That’s the claim being made by many lunatics on the web… I love the Mandela is “The Che Guevara Of Africa” bit… Can’t leave out World Net Daily… They just have to get their digs in… And probably now former supporters of Ted Cruz. To a person, they cite a video […]

My Thoughts On Last Night’s Elections. *Meme Alert*

Share Button

I’ve come across some analysis of why Romney didn’t succeed in his bid to oust the current President. At Watts Up With That, they are following the FOX news planted meme that hurricane Sandy is the reason for Romneys loss. Before I make my comment, note that I’m not a supporter of either party. I […]

Dishonoring A Death

Share Button

This popped up on Facebook today, and I have to say, I’m a bit appalled. A Facebook friend provides the narrative: “Struggles with his faith” may have been “an indirect cause, at least,” says one activist. This wasn’t some youngster that had been bullied. This was a 38 year old man. The Mormon Church has […]

Meme Alert! Newt Is Dumb!

Share Button

Yep, this is the latest meme! This isn’t the first time I’ve come across this silliness.   I’ve also seen the same applied to Victor Davis Hanson, and to Freeman Dyson.  Why are they “dumb“? Because they have differing opinions on issues than liberals do, such as Hanson’s views on immigration and Dyson’s refusal to march […]
