There are lyrics from one of my favorite old Beatles’ song that many baby boomers – those like me who after many years of gainful employment lost their jobs – can relate to. It’s something like this:
Last week Rick Santorum called the President “a snob” for wanting everyone to get a college education (in fact, Obama never actually called for universal college education but only for a year or more of training after high school).
This might sound like a trivial choice but, surprisingly, many Americans choose to continue to sit down with a beer to watch football while leaving their family dangerously exposed in the event of a catastrophe. It is true that many face a much tougher immediate choice such as whether to pay the rent or buy some food this week, and it is sad that the economy has driven many to these tough choices.
Congressman Ron Paul deserves the Republican Party nomination for president because he would prove to be the most dramatic contrast with Barack Obama and right now the nation would benefit by a clear distinction between the philosophy offered by Democrats and that of the GOP.
Economic cheerleaders on Wall Street and in the White House are taking heart. The US has had three straight months of faster job growth. The number of Americans each week filing new claims for unemployment benefits is down by more than 50,000 since early January. Corporate profits are healthy. The S&P 500 on Friday closed at a post-financial crisis high.
On Feb. 27, 2012, a teenager—reportedly a victim of bullying and something of a social outcast—walked into a Cleveland high school and opened fire in the cafeteria, killing two students and wounding three others. The teenager, identified as T.J. Lane, has been taken into police custody. Now media pundits are speculating on who or what is to blame for this latest spate of violence.
Governor Christie’s proposed State Budget provides that the Homestead Tax Credit will not be changed and will remain capped at last year’s reduced benefit levels.
Instead of focusing on getting our economy back on track, House Republicans are making an effort to radically change the law on birth control, abortion and a multitude of other issues pertaining to women’s health and the degree to which government gets involved in our personal privacy.
A deadbeat is someone who does not pay his bills or fulfill similar obligations. Working families in America cannot afford to elect any more deadbeat Republicans.
Health care insurance is important to protect my family’s health and my small business. By going without coverage, we are taking the risk that we could lose everything. If one of us were to get sick and need hospitalization, the heavy costs could force me to use the assets of my business to cover medical debt, which could destroy my business.
