Foreign Policy Plus Ailing Economy Hurt Democrats

by T Akery September 16th, 2014 Republican Reflections
The reports coming out of the Middle East on ISIS are becoming worse by the day. While the President has vowed he will do something about it through a couple of speeches, very little has happened that has changed the situation. The only potentially good news is that more countries are coming into play with Britain and possibly the UN taking a stronger stanceRepublican-Reflections on ISIS. But it is hardly enough to offset the damage that has been done over there and it may be a case of too little, too late.

While I don't want the President to spell

  • While the president waits to come up with a strategy ISIS is growing stronger day by day. -- House Armed Services Committee Chairman Buck McKeon, R-California

  • The president told the leaders that he has the authority he needs to take action against ISIL. --White House statement

  • The pattern of damage . . . appears to indicate that there were impacts from a large number of high-energy objects from outside the aircraft [Malaysia Airlines Flight 17]. -- Dutch Safety Board

Obama’s Speech And The Art Of War

by Eric M. Blake September 15th, 2014 Conservative Considerations
Conservative-Considerations Dear readers, it’s time to bring out the great Sun Tzu again — and why not? President Obama has certainly proven time and again that either he's not aware of the foreign policy insight of The Art Of War, or else he simply thinks it’s all outdated. Curious how his fondness for Saul Alinsky’s teachings indicates he’s willing to treat politics like war… but he never seems willing to treat war like war.

Frankly, his chaotic "handling" (if one can honestly call it that…) of the various international crises arising since his initial inauguration prove full well Master Sun's warning:

"When a civil leadership unaware of the

Common Core, Ray Rice, and Apple Computer

by Ronald A. Rowe September 11th, 2014 Winners & Losers
Winners-Losers There was a lot of action in the world of politics this week.  You are forgiven if you missed it with the 24-hour wall-to-wall coverage of Joan Rivers’ death but the major media outlets did manage to sneak in a few other kernels of information throughout the week between the end of the Rivers coverage and the start of the all Ray Rice, all the time coverage that kicked off the new cycle.  Here, in typical WINNERS AND LOSERS short-hand fashion, are some of the stories that made an

Independent Ideas: More Constitution, Please!

by Jason Lightner September 12th, 2014 Independent Ideas
Independent-Ideas The Constitution to the United States of America has been a popular topic lately, and I can't think of anything I'd like to talk about more right now. You remember how we're looking to get big money out of politics?

You don't?

Oh, that's right. That's because not very many of us are actually putting any effort into the cause. Guys, if you want to make an omelette, you've got to break some eggs. This means taking off work, getting off the couch, and getting the freakin' word out. But enough about me, let's talk about you.

Think of the last cause you

Never Mind the Hypocrisy

by Jessica B. September 9th, 2014 Democratic Deliberations
Democratic-Deliberations I spend a lot of time reading political news, mostly because I am opinionated and believe strongly that it is important to be an educated voter. I try to read a wide variety of news sources so that I get a pretty good overview of the variety of opinions and media available. But lately I am just so overwhelmed and depressed by what I read and see from right wing media sources. Mostly, I struggle to understand how militant government should be fought at ALL costs, unless it is directed towards people that we find to be a threat.
