US Policy in the Middle East - What's Next - 12/30/08 05:39 AM
One of the many difficulties of the recent weeks since the election of Mr Obama as President has been the constant drum beat of the media which continues to savage President Bush without answer. The continued misstatements and distortions directed against the President seem unnecessary as the lame duck occupant of the Oval Office counts down the days to President Obama's inauguration and the peaceful transfer of power to the new administration. It has been my impression that the economic team nominations by the President Elect have been top drawer. As for his national security team, not so much - and (22 comments)
Merry Christmas Greetings - 12/22/08 07:20 PM
Many of us are customers of Jeff Turner's Real Estate Shows - my automated virtual tour vendor of choice. But I thought I might mention an additional service provided by Jeff on his site for his subscribers. His staff has created a series of excellent "prefabricated" (too classy to refer to as generic) shows for seasonal occasions which can be imported into your subscriber account to create a thoughtful message with musical background and your branding information on the frame. This time of year there are appropriate seasonal messages for Christmas, Hanukkah, Muslim celebrations and others. They are tastefully rendered and (9 comments)
Still doing your Christmas Shopping ? - 12/17/08 09:56 AM
I have searched for the perfect gift for Active Rain political commentators. What to get for the activists of both sides in the political groups who slash and burn in the name of their particular cause. I have found an answer. Click the link. [trust me] < My gift suggestion for you >
But I heard him exclaim, ere he drove out of sight, "Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good-night."

Take a Break - But it is still the Truth - 12/14/08 05:34 PM
This is scary, but there is too much truth to ignore. I was initially pleased when Fred Thompson joined the coalition of the willing that made up the list of Presidential candidates in the last silly season of Presidential politics. But I found that he was not serious about the campaign and refused to make the necessary payments to Governor Blogojevich to secure the nomination. Judging from the frankness and honesty of the linked clip – I do not expect to see him running for any other elective office in the future. I will miss him. I like the sound of (13 comments)
A toast to Constitutional History - 12/03/08 05:23 PM
We are at the intersection of Constitutional history and holiday cheer. How often does that happen ? December 5 marks the 75th Anniversary of the ratification of the 21st Amendment to the US Constitution. You remember that one... it is the the repeal of Prohibition - the 18th Amendment. So, if you are so inclined, raise a glass and toast the holiday season and the 21st Amendment. Happy Anniversary. (3 comments)
Something is Rotten in the State of Texas - 12/02/08 02:51 PM
It has been a deeply regretted sideshow to the long and bitter election campaign that the media has savaged the reputations of the sitting President and the Vice-President - neither of whom have been on the ballot for any office during the past two years. This has gone beyond politics or necessary trashing of the administration for political gain to unreasonable personal attacks on the public servants who have kept this nation safe for the past seven years. I will address the President's legacy on another day soon, but would like to take note of the Vice-President and his recent time (4 comments)
