Tax to the Max

October 3, 2011

34

Much of today’s debate in American politics centers around the battle to meet budget obligations.  Obama would like to raise taxes on the very rich and close some tax loopholes while Republicans insist raising taxes is out of the question.  I’d like to suggest some taxes I think both parties can get behind: A tax […]

A new fish story controversy has bit the Obama administration at a time the President is already reeling from low poll numbers before next year’s election. The scandal started innocently enough when the White House released a photo from Obama’s summer vacation–supposedly an action shot of Obama catching a ‘big’ fish. Obama returned from vacation […]

The last couple weeks, The Fonz has been especially interested in the tooth fairy.  As a parent I always worried about the day the kids would start seeing holes in the tooth fairy’s story because adults have done such a poor job establishing the tooth fairy legend.  Why do we spend so much time establishing […]

Perhaps you’ve seen this photo of Obama blocking the face of Mongolia’s President Tsakhiagiin Elbegdorj in a world leader group picture during a UN summit: Obama has been ridiculed in the media, but you can’t trust reporters have given us the whole story.   They saw a funny picture and immediately assumed Obama had made a […]

Perhaps you’ve heard the US government is in the midst of heated negotiations to raise the debt ceiling.  The government must raise the total amount it can borrow in order to meet its obligations by August 2 or the government won’t be able to make payments on some debts, and China will foreclose and repossess […]

Ain’t No Party Like a Barack Obama Party!

This is a picture of President Obama taken at a 4th of July celebration at the White House for military families. Can you pick the person in this picture who did not vote for Obama? Apparently the guy on the left meets the President all the time.  I once met George H.W. Bush, and even […]

What did Obama say to the Queen?

May 28, 2011

“Why did we even split up?  Let’s never fight again.” “Can you introduce me to Elton John?” “Fergie asked me to ask you if you were mad at her.  She can’t think of what she might have done to upset you.” “That Pippa can really hang a bridesmaid’s dress, what, what?” “I don’t want to […]

Scenes from the Special Relationship

May 25, 2011

US President Barack Obama is visiting the United Kingdom as part of an official state visit.  Past leaders of both countries have been fond of using the term “special relationship” to describe the US-UK bond.  I’ve never been sure how to interpret “special relationship”.  It’s the kind of vague label that a high school guy […]
