5 Tips On How To Follow Local Elections

From the time you wake up to the time you go to sleep you will most likely have been exposed in some way, shape, or form to information regarding the presidential election candidates. Presidential elections get the majority of the news coverage. It’s the big show, the spectacle that everyone wants to see. The race for the United States presidency is even watched by people in foreign countries. It’s an important and very high-profile position so it’s no wonder that this is the case. There’s no doubt that the national and major elections are important. There’s no denying that the...

President Obama’s 2015 State of the Union: Not Your Average Lame Duck

“Do not go gentle into that good night.” – Dylan Thomas This very well could have been what President Obama had going into his 2015 State of the Union address because he sure didn’t deliver a speech like a lame duck. Obama spoke like someone who is not only still on the job but with purpose and resolve.  It doesn’t sound like he intends to roll over to an opposition controlled Congress regardless if he has no more campaigns to win. He won both of them. This is a president who spoke of hope in America and of change in...

New America: The Crossing of the Fulcrum

“The White Establishment Is Now The Minority” – Bill O’Reilly This is what is at the heart of the extremist views involving Obama for the most part. Bill is right, it is a changing country. We’ve been moving towards this change for a long time. What I believe we are seeing is The Crossing of the Fulcrum™ (mine don’t jack it).

Up until the last few years integration was tolerated because the “traditional America” still held all...

Former Colin Powell Chief of Staff, Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson confirms Republican “party is full of racists”

Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson, Colin Powell’s chief of staff during his time as Secretary of State, speaks in response to former New Hampshire Republican governor and Mitt Romney campaign co-chair John Sununu’s comments about General Powell’s endorsement of President Obama being race based. “My party, unfortunately, is the bastion of those people, not all of them, but most of them, who are still basing their decision on race,” Wilkerson said. “Let me just be candid: My party is full of racists. And the real reason a considerable portion of my party wants President Obama out of the White House has nothing...

Joe Biden Brings the Win in Debate over Paul Ryan 2

Joe Biden Brings the Win in Debate over Paul Ryan

The 2012 Vice Presidential debate was a showdown between current Vice President Joe Biden and VP hopeful Paul Ryan. This battle for votes was held at the Norton Center for the Arts at Centre College, in Danville, KY. I don’t know if Ryan expected Biden to perform like Obama did against Romney but that was not the case. The Joe America got last night was not the same Joe that debated Sarah Palin in the previous presidential election. Hulk Biden came to play and was not going to take any of the nonsense that Obama let slide last time. Obama lost...
