President Obama has found himself caught up in yet another scandal this week with controversy over the IRS using their powers to attack the Tea Party. Whether you like the Tea Party or not, this behavior is not fair, nor should it be tolerated. However, this also isn't a new development. The IRS has been going against political adversaries for years and it is only coming to light because of our constant news coverage. Since the beginning of the IRS, several administrations have gone after their political rivals. While we do not condone this strategy, it must be known that the current leaders are not alone in this tactic. Is the IRS a political goon squad? It appears that they might have been used that way.
Fox News is dying and has seen it's best days. It's now in its Swan Song. It's dying. They've outlived their welcome and are in decline. Why? Because America is sick and tired of them spewing hatred? Is it Obama? Have they just outgrown the American public? If you take a look at these five factors I've listed below, you can see why they will no longer be the top news channel and why there ratings are at an all-time low. Watch it while you can because unless they change their ways and start telling real news, their days are numbered.
There’s been a lot of hoopla the last few weeks over President Obama’s use of Executive Orders and their legality. I’ve heard terms like “unprecedented” and “unconstitutional” and “abuse of power” mentioned by members of our Congress and I find myself shaking my head. The fact is: It is legal for a president to issue an Executive Order. An Executive Order grants the President the right to make major decisions, and even laws, without the consent of Congress. Don’t like it? Blame the Founding Fathers. Washington, Adams, Jefferson, and Madison all made Executive Orders. Not all of them were something you might agree with. Some of them were down and outright criminal, but they are legal, NOT impeachable, and are the law of the land. Here are some of the worst in history (and no, your gun laws aren’t in this list). As a side note, President Obama has not had the most Executive Orders ever issued. He’s not even close and, in fact, he’s made the LEAST Executive Orders of any President in the past 100 years. He certainly has not made the worst executive actions!
This article is by request from several of my readers. After one of the most hate-filled and polarized elections in recent US History (yes, believe it or not, it wasn’t the worst - see the 1876 election of Rutherford B. Hayes and Samuel Tilden for more division...), the whiners have come out in full force. Who was the worst of this election? Who would you say couldn't handle the reality that they didn't get their way? A lot of posts have been popping up about businesses to boycott because they are laying off their employees. I say, let bygones by bygones. Those companies are going to do what they want until they realize that the sky hasn't fallen and that they need qualified people to work for them. Hopefully, by that time, it won't be too late and more savvy businessman haven't hired them away. Note: You will not find Mitt Romney on this list. Despite not having a concession speech written, he accepted his loss with grace and dignity in post-election 2012. Well, done, Mr. Romney! Here's my list of five people who need to control their childish temper tantrums and quit whining:
On June 28th, 2012 the Supreme Court of the United States deemed that the Affordable Health Care Act was constitutional. It was a shock to Republicans and a win for the President. Do you agree with the decision? Are you against it? Either way, what are your reasons? While President Obama will go down in history as the President that passed this legislation, did you know that other presidents have tried before him? Some of them even got pretty close to succeeding in the health care controversy. Here is a list of previous presidents (2 Republicans and 3 Democrats) who worked at getting Health Care in America:

The election of 2012 is almost here and the entire country has been picking sides. There is the usual list of celebrities coming out and saying who they are going to vote for: Lindsay Lohan throws in her hat for Mitt Romney, while Bruce Springsteen is out stumping for President Obama. You can usually pick the candidates that an organization or group of people might choose, but this year seems a little different. Here are five organizations or groups that have endorsed Obama and that totally threw me for a loop when it came to their support.
