Is it me or is the word “awesome” becoming the most overused word in the English language? Everything seems to be “awesome!” these days. For those old enough to remember, awesome was also one of the most overused words in the late 1980s. Occasionally, I also still hear girls say “like” but not as much as I used to thank God. Then there is the old standby “cool” which has managed to survive many generations from the early 1950s on. It has outlived Elvis, James Dean, The Beatles, Disco, Michael Jackson, and many others. Hey, now THAT’s cool!
How much would you pay to see a “no holds barred” fight in the ring between Putin and Obama? It would be the highest rated event in the history of television and my guess is that more Americans would probably root for Putin if for no other reason than he is a man going against a pseudo-man. One thing I DO know is that Putin could take the impostor in one round in spite of giving away six inches in height. Obama is a laughing stock as he has once again reinforced his image as a wimp with the sorry sanctions he levied against some Russian officials. Can you imagine President Eisenhower being referred to as a “prankster” by government officials in Russia?
believe in government action to achieve equal opportunity and equality for all. It is the duty of the government to alleviate social ills and to protect civil liberties and individual and human rights. Believe the role of the government should be to guarantee that no one is in need. Liberal policies generally emphasize the need for the government to solve problems.
believe in personal responsibility, limited government, free markets, individual liberty, traditional American values and a strong national defense. Believe the role of government should be to provide people the freedom necessary to pursue their own goals. Conservative policies generally emphasize empowerment of the individual to solve problems.
The above definitions of Liberal and Conservative come from the “Student News Daily” and are pretty accurate. Today, because of many changes in demographics we are seeing the domination of the Liberals. We have too many addicted to the government dole who have no incentive to leave the cozy confines of government freebies. They don’t have to think on their own as the government will always be there for them with their handouts. They love hearing about the possibility of a minimum wage of $10.10 since they don’t have to do anything to earn it. They are so enamored of that thought that they don’t realize that along with that increase would be lost jobs and higher goods costs which mean higher retail prices. But, hey! I got a free phone.
