Barack Obama’s zero sum world

CURE_StarParkerStar Parker – CURE – Investopedia defines a “zero sum game” as “a situation in which one person’s gain is equivalent to another’s loss, so the net change in wealth or benefit is zero.”

If a political leader wielding power sees the world as a zero sum game – gains to one must mean a loss to another – it is likely that this leader will promote policies that will limit growth, wealth creation and innovative problem solving.

What a zero sum worldview will produce more of is political, class, and ethnic resentment and strife.

It so happens we have a leader today that has this worldview and his name is Barack Obama. It is not surprising that today’s world over which he is presiding, at home and abroad, increasingly shows these characteristics.  (READ MORE)

A United Front?

GOP_logoI am not a fan of beginning an article with a disclaimer, but sometimes the circumstances of life force us to do things which make us uncomfortable in order to accomplish the intended goal.  Here we go-I am a real, dyed-in-the-wool, Republican.  I support pro-life, I am pro second amendment, pro-family, I support traditional ideals and small government.  OK…so now you are scratching your head and wondering why is there a need for a disclaimer, right?  Well, it’s simple really.  Some (most) who are in positions of leadership at the Ohio Republican Party (ORP) and the Republican National Committee (RNC) do not hold these Republican ideals as theirs, but rather hold contrary ideals.        Therefore, since I will be called out for not being a GOOD Republican due to the contents of this article, I thought it would be a good idea to present reality as…well…reality.   Continue reading

Don’t mistake Tea Party birth pains for death throes

TeaPartyByFreedomFanThe Tea Party captures a groundswell of dissatisfaction with business-as-usual in how our country is being run.

With, most recently, incumbent Republican Senators Pat Roberts in Kansas and Lamar Alexander in Tennessee winning their respective primaries, Tea Party challengers failed in all attempts in this primary cycle to defeat Senate incumbents.

Now we’re starting to hear eulogies about the Tea Party movement.

But let’s not confuse birth pains with death throes.  (READ MORE)

MS_OH_GOPIt appears as if the Mississippi GOP and the Ohio GOP share common strategies in their attempts to keep their incumbents in office.  Ignore the law and ignore their members. OHIO – The Ohio GOP ignored the law when it was required to make a decision under ORC3517.05.

Springfield needs Performance Audit before asking for Levy

NO_on_LevyOn August 5, the people of the Springfield Local School District defeated a 7.9 mil permanent levy in a special election. While those who support the levy accuse the opponents of hating children and being against education, the real issues are mismanagement and poor choices by the Board.

Some 19 months ago, the Board was approached with the idea of doing an Independent Comprehensive Performance Audit. A Performance Audit (PA) is a tool which is used by hundreds of businesses and organizations who are concerned with responsible spending and good business practices. However, the Board has chosen to ignore the appeals for a PA and decided to ask the people of the district for more money. Continue reading
