Obama’s Energy Strategy

Posted in 2012 Election, Politics on June 29th, 2011

President Obama’s energy strategy, such as it is, is quite tactical in scope and nature. His release of 30 million barrels of oil from the U.S. Strategic Petroleum Reserve, supposedly to curb gasoline prices, is a near-term only mitigation.

That term being defined as the length of time remaining in Obama’s first term in office. πŸ˜‰

Domestic Maintenance

Posted in 2012 Election on June 29th, 2011

Domestic maintenance, in the form of house cleaning, is a necessity. If one’s house is not kept clean it will attract a plethora of vermin which will, in turn, bring myriad diseases to plague one’s self and one’s family and rob from them their health and happiness.

As this is true for one’s house so it is true for the People’s house, the US House of Representatives. It must be swept clean and sanitized, and any disease-bearing vermin within it must be expunged in order for America to regain its health and vigor.

It would be both wise and prudent for Americans to remember that the 2012 Elections encompass more than just a presidential election; the entirety of the House is up for reelection as well, with all 435 seats being in play on November 6, 2012.

Securing the White House is certainly important, both functionally and symbolically, but all federal laws start in the US House of Representatives. Completing the “spring cleaning” started with the 2010 mid-term elections is imperative if the renewal of America is to continue and it’s rebirth is to come full term.

Selling Fear & Loathing

Posted in Humor, Politics on June 27th, 2011

As I’ve posted before, if Obama’s FDA and HHS were really trying to curtail smoking by Americans, the ads they’ve chosen will fail just as every previous attempt at social engineering of people’s habit through fear-mongering have failed.

Eeeeeeewwwwww!

On the other hand, disgust and loathing work better than fear in almost all cases. It’s just a matter of marketing. πŸ˜‰
