Stars Promoting Products

Okay, I understand why celebrities promote different products.  I mean, being a superstar doesn’t pay all that much, so they have to supplement their income somehow, right?  But I think it’s kind of obnoxious for them to think that just because they hold up a can of Pepsi for 30 seconds I’m going to go out and buy it. Athletes that do product endorsements most likely use the sneaker they are hawking, but honestly do …

Etiquette For Texting In The Dating Arena

Posted by Marla Martenson
Categories: Advice, Relationships,

As a matchmaker, I frequently get feedback from frustrated clients telling me that their date canceled on them by sending them a text message, or even “broke up with them” through text. What has happened to our society that we are all hiding behind e-mails and text messages? We seem to be afraid or too busy to pick up the phone and add a personal touch - a human touch. Sometimes, people say they sent …

We Will Be Back In Strength

Former Governor of Arkasas, Republican Mike Huckabee, couldn’t have said it better. I agree with him in his open letter on redstate.com. My thoughts are like his, but I’m also hoping that the next four years are not like the last four. Our country has been so divided, and in my opinion, made worse by the mainstream media. I feel that conservatives have a lot more humility than liberals. They can disagree with their leader …

Coal Industry To Be Bankrupted

It doesn’t matter that nearly 50% of our home electric comes from coal. The predicted winner of today’s Presidential Election, Democrat Barack Obama, wants to punish coal companies, and other industrial markets, with Cap and Trade. This will slow, or maybe even reverse economic progress in the United States. The predicted loser, Republican John McCain, also supports cap and trade, but not to the extent Obama does. Either way, cap and trade never worked. ... …

Whither The Candidates?

It’s usually around your third year of a Bachelor of Arts degree that the conversation will get theoretical.  Talk turns from the texts (Moby Dick, Frankenstein, Oscar Wilde, or Bernardo Bertolucci) to the subject of theory, conjecture.  Invariably, any honest English, Film, Communications or History student will eventually come around to the topic of simulation and simulacra.  It’s been a few years since I’ve studied those particular subjects, but there’s something about the US election …

Ralph Nader’s Campaign Produces Another Bizarre Advertisement

Everyone knows why Ralph Nader continues to run for president every four years - he believes that the American people deserve better than two legitimate candidates for the Presidency. While his views are debatable, it’s indisputable that Nader running at the conclusion of each presidential term has a damaging effect on both the Democratic and Republican candidates. In 2000, Nader attempted to inch his way into the presidential race by calling for reform for both parties, …

People Wonder Why Obama Is Called “Radical”

Categories: Editorials, Elections,

A blog that Democratic Presidential Nominee Barack Obama wrote on the far-left website, Daily Kos, has resurfaced. As of late, he’s been trying to fool us with the illusion that he’s a moderate. He basically asks readers to pretend to be less radical. It’s been hard the last couple of weeks for the Obama campaign to spin stories made public by Republican Presidential Nominee John McCain, because recently, they’ve been using Obama’s own words against …

Zo Black & Right

I thought I’d share this guy’s video. Even if you don’t agree with Zo, you’ll love his delivery. His ways of explaining things are great. Too bad for Republican Presidential Candidate John McCain. He could have taken advantage of him, and brought him on the campaign trail. It would have been nice for Republicans to have someone like this on the campaign trail, instead of the old farts they dragged along all year. Oh well… …

Categories: Elections, Law,

With only a few short days to go before the November 4th presidential election, Attorney Philip Berg is appealing his “Obama eligibility” lawsuit to the U. S. Supreme Court. On Thursday, Berg filed a Writ of Certiorari and an application for an immediate injunction to stay the election. The story of the case, virtually absent from the mainstream media, is heavily detailed in Berg’s website, Obamacrimes.com. Berg’s suit, Berg v. Obama, No. 08-cv-4083, had been …
