Obama and The Weather Man

I heard somewhere that Obama actually liked The Weather Man. If that doesn't make him totally out-of-step with the rest of American society, or a full-blown terrorist bent on the destruction of all life on this dear dear dear planet which we call home, whichever is worst, I don't know what would.

What We Need is a REAL Maverick

I gotta admit that I've not paid too much attention to any of the Presidential or Vice-Presidential debates. My mind was set on whom to vote for immediately after Hilary dropped out of the race.

His actions today have done nothing but re-affirm that feeling.

And, I'm going to refrain from saying "live long and prosper" since 100,000 or more people have already done so.
