The battle will be fought over the Middle Class concerns and the Democrats understand that. The Hillary video is a sign that the Democrats get it. Rubio’s own announcement the next day showed that at least one Republican gets it.

The message is clear from the White House, any attempt to join Republicans in questioning Obama’s policy on the Middle East and the Iranian treaty will result in possible investigation and indictment.

Random Thoughts

Random Thoughts – These are random thoughts. As I review news items about what has happened recently, I might turn one of these into a longer article. Please, note the word random as I once had a critic who complained about a similar column saying that each paragraph had nothing to do with the other. He wasn’t really the brightest bulb as actually, he failed to notice the phrase “Random Thoughts.”

Hillary’s Foreign Policy Failures!

March 28, 2015
Hillary's Foreign Policy

The main issue in the campaign will be what will Hillary’s foreign policy look like? The conventional wisdom is that Clinton will be closer to her husband’s foreign policy which didn’t dramatically differ from the Reagan/Bush years. But, what if conventional wisdom is wrong?

Obama’s Fault!

March 24, 2015
Bush's Fault

America is less safe today than when Obama took his first oath of office. And, the fault lies with Obama. There is no blaming Bush. No matter how hard Obama and his supporters within the punditry class and media will tell you otherwise, it is not Bush’s fault. It is now clearly Obama’s Fault.

Net Neutrality Equals Censorship

March 18, 2015
Net Neutrality

The battle for control of the Internet isn’t over. Over two-thirds of the House and Senate are on record as opposing FCC regulation of the Internet, and a new president could change the policy overnight in 2017 even if the courts don’t block it.

Walmart Raises the Minimum Wage

March 5, 2015

The minimum wage debate is one of those debates that shows economic ignorance and how good intentions don’t match results. Politicians love the idea that they can raise salaries and produce economic growth by simply telling businesses, “Give everyone a raise.” Of course what is missing from these debates is that biggest losers in artificially raising minimum wage are the very poor who the laws are supposed to benefit.

Obama Wrong About the Crusades!

March 1, 2015
Crusades

Brutality of the Crusades can’t be denied but then in Medieval times, life was both brutal and short. Brutality was a sin that all sides were guilty of. Esteemed Middle East Scholar Bernard Lewis noted, “The Crusades could more accurately be described as a limited, belated and in the last analysis, ineffectual response to the jihad- a failed attempt to recover through a Christian holy war what had been lost to a Muslim holy war.”
