24 Jun 11: Yesterday we saw yet another example of Obama's placing political cosiderations ahead of the nation's security. By releasing oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve, Obama caters to the liberals who oppose any effort to use our own resources, and yet it's impact on gas prices will please the motoring public. It doesn't matter one iota to Obama that the SPR is intended to be used in the event of a national emergency, not for political gain.

20 Jun 11: As part of the opening ceremonies for the final round of the US Open Golf Championship, NBC included a piece on patriotism, which included some schoolchildren reciting the Pledge of Allegiance. Only one problem: NBC edited out the phrase "under God" and also “indivisible” and “one nation.” After outrage, NBC apologized, sort of, and said that disciplinary action would be taken internally and privately. That's corporate-speak for "no one will be disciplined."

8 Jun 11: The CEO of GM is thinks the federal gas tax should be raised from $.18.4 to $1.00! Gee, that wouldn't have anything to do with the fact that GM is the only domestic automobile manufacturer with an electric car in production, would it? That would sure put a damper on the so-called economic comeback through which we're supposedly working.
