Occupy Wall Street
by J. B. Cannon (01 February 2012 15:05:48)

I''ve held my tongue regarding the Occupy Wall Street protests that are occurring across the country, but it''s getting ridiculous. First, no, you are not the 99%. Why? Because you certainly don''t represent me and I''m clearly not in the 1% (see my last post). Demonizing the wealthy is never the answer. Have some Wall Street companies done shady or dirty deals? Probably, but that''s not a reason to damage a bunch of small businesses with your protests. There are restaurants and other small businesses suffering because the protestors are chasing away customers. Make your point and go home, people.

Fast and Furious
(Government, Guns/Gun Control, Politics)
by J. B. Cannon (31 January 2012 15:02:05)

It used to be if someone mentioned "Fast and Furious", you thought of a movie with fast cars and some hot looking, macho guys. Not any more. Thanks to the ATF and our Justice Department, "Fast and Furious" now calls to mind the tragic death of a US Border Patrol agent, perhaps countless other deaths, and a whole bunch of weapons in the hands of some very dangerous people.

Raising the debt ceiling
(Government, Law, Politics)

All this talk about raising the debt ceiling is really raising my blood pressure! No, we can''t keep raising the debt ceiling. Our nation is already way overdrawn. Think about it. If your bank account is already overdrawn, do you keep spending money because you''ve still got checks? Or if you''ve hit your maximums on your credit cards, do you demand they raise your limit? Of course not.

We must stop Obama
by J. B. Cannon (14 June 2011 14:32:54)

While this site isn''t really a political site, per se, I believe defeating President Obama''s re-election bid is of vital importance for the sake of our country. This president has put our nation on the fast track to ruin. He''s been growing the government at a phenomenal pace, creating new bureaucracies that continue eating away at our liberties and rights. Can you say Obamacare? Scarier still is what''s being done via regulation, totally bypassing Congress.
