There is a bill that has cleared the House of Representatives and is now being debated in the Senate.  This bill, sponsored by Senate Banking Committee Chairman Christopher Dodd, labeled a “Financial Reform Bill” , which according to President Obama, will clear corruption from Wall Street and large insurance firms, investment firms and banking institutions.  Obama’s own words:

Baseball, Big Government And Fenway Park

In America, living free, Obama, Opinion, Red Sox, Uncategorized on February 26, 2010 at 2:57 am

America: land of the free and home of the brave.  Each summer, the words of Francis Scott Key sound off in ballparks across America.  Over the past thirty years I have enjoyed many magical moments at Fenway Park.  In a way I am unable to explain, America’s oldest ballpark brings me comfort and relief when I seem to need it most.  As a lifelong Red Sox fan, I am able to advise which beer lines are the shortest, which restrooms to avoid between innings and which sections will have your neck feeling like you just got rear-ended by a truck going sixty (sections 7, 8 and 9-watching the game with your head turned ninety degrees takes its toll).  You see, certain aspects of Fenway remain unchanged, and I count on that.

Frustrated by America’s new direction I found myself contemplating, “What might Government possibly learn from the home of the Green Monster?”  For starters, it can learn its role as was originally intended.  As a fan, I know my role; it is to cheer, boo (when needed) and above all, support my team through good times and bad.  Similarly, Government’s role is to support the American people by maintaining and protecting the field on which we play; it’s not to play with us.

In recent years our Federal Government has boldly given in to its desire to play on the people’s field.  Since President Obama’s inauguration, the public-sector infection has spread throughout the auto industry, the banking industry, health care and the climate (even mother nature can’t escape Government regulation).  With the current administrations lack of private-sector experience (less than 11%) it’s no wonder they want to give it a shot.  I’m sorry Government; Medicaid, Amtrak and the US Post Office all resulted in disaster and nobody wants you to play anymore.

Sadly, the Federal Government has the power, should they abuse it, to force their way onto our field.  It’s time for big Government to return to the job for which it was constructed: preserve and maintain the field of play.  America’s arena is now overrun with weeds and desperately needs repair.  While “America’s groundkeeper” doesn’t have the flashiest ring, it remains an essential job in preserving our nation’s prosperity.  The people have spoken and government needs to return to its job.  To my Government: “As an American and devoted member of Red Sox Nation, I ask you do us all a favor and get off the field, you didn’t make the team.”

With spring training just around the corner I eagerly await a new season where anything can happen.  Furthermore, I look forward to seeing the game I love played on the field I know so well.  Perhaps someday Government will understand that high-level play requires a consistent, well-maintained field-with no fan interference.

Obama's First Year; A Case Study In Failed Lessons And Poor Judgment

In Congress, Corruption, Government Lies, Health Care, marxism, military, morality, national security, Obama, Socialism, terrorism, Uncategorized, US Senate, World News on February 1, 2010 at 11:22 pm

A good solid B+? Many would argue otherwise. President Obama has tirelessly maintained his stance that America simply needs to understand his vision for the future. The people simply aren’t listening. From where the President sits Americans seem the dumbest nation of people to ever be governed (not to mention extremely uncooperative). Or, could it be Obama is the one who fails to understand the people?

I took it upon myself to take a closer look at the many poor decisions the President has made since taking office. More often than not, poor decisions are the result of poor judgment. As I began to recall the many lapses in judgment by the young progressive, I struggle with where to begin. Due to overwhelming  examples, I will narrow the scope to six:

Pelosi Doesn’t Care If You Don’t Want Obamacare-She’s Going To Pass It

In Congress, Corruption, Government Lies, Health Care, Obama, Socialism on January 28, 2010 at 10:43 pm

Here’s what Nancy said today:

“We’ll go through the gate. If the gate’s closed, we’ll go over a fence. If the fence is too high, we’ll pole vault in. If that doesn’t work, we’ll parachute in but we’re going to get health care reform passed for the American people.”

Isn’t it interesting that only 30% of Americans actually want socialist Obamacare and Nancy still won’t listen? What’s the deal here, seriously?

Gateway Pundit says:

“Only 30% of Americans say they want Congress to pass Obamacare.
But, this won’t stop Pelosi from parachuting it in.”
