Anthony R's Articles In Politics

Some may say I need a psychiatrist, but I've always enjoyed politics and the topics involved. With that being said, wading into the sewage of political discourse these days is an exercise in madness. Gone are the days when such discourse could lead to anything remotely resembling a civilized exchange of ideas. We've ushered in a new era where most people who have such interest are more out to prove that they are right, and any person with any disagreement, or objection to any policy and ...

Can we have an extension on the day? Hows about a year without a Democrat?

What an election season. Democrats are hardly worth the time to write about anymore, but Republicans are proving to be even worse. They have now been exposed as career politicians with absolutely no loyalty to party, only to interests, and money. Need evidence? Look no further than "war hero" John McCain. Most people that I know were so sickened by the idea of him becoming the party nominee in 2008, that they refused to vote for him, but I, as a loyal Republican, held my nose and did the deed. H...

All the gun control advocates are on all the Sunday shows and some of them might be well meaning, but they are totally misguided. Ask a liberal gun control advocate something like, "what new law would have stopped Eric Harris from sawing off his shotgun on both ends, transforming it into the deadliest close range weapon imaginable?" Since sawing off a shotgun is already a felony in most states and no one is even including the deadly close range shotgun on the list of weapons to be banned, they w...

Keep in mind that the Obamacare mandate was upheld not under the Commerce Clause – but as a “tax.”

Was just watching all of Obama's propaganda on his Youtube channel and I must say it's very good. It's actually top notch. Obama is one of the worst Presidents of my lifetime, but he manages to milk the most out of his few successes while amplifying his personal likability and family with amazing efficiency.

So it won't be easy to beat him. Obama has done more campaigning and lavish vacationing then governing, but it really doesn't matter when you have a propaganda machine...

Lately on the internet, I read a lot of people posting political thoughts as if they think they have all the answers to some of the most complex issues. I have opinions too, but I never claim that I'm 100% correct. I know what I read and I try to come to a reasonable conclusion. Many people have about as much expertise in political sciences as my garbageman, only difference? My garbageman might have opinions, but he doesn't consider himself an expert in matters of nuclear proliferation or Russia...

Looks like Obammy's numbers are totally underwater and reaching fatal levels. One and done buddy.

This picture infuriates me. Look at the way Chicago thug Obama is pointing his finger into the chest of Netanyahu.

This photo is almost surreal. Who thought it would be a good idea to bring a Presidential seal and teleprompters into a 5th grade classroom? it looks like the President is trying to deliver an address to elementary school children. This guy becomes more laughable and absurd every day.

I'm watching the Steelers vs the Chargers game and I see that I can watch President elect douche at the conclusion on 60 Minutes. It looks like Michell Obama has come out of hiding now that the election is over, I guess if she repeats something like, “America is a mean country in 2008,” it wont really matter very much because her husband has already been elected. I think I will tune in to watch President elect douche to see what he has to say after the game.

Back when I was in Junior High School, I was given the opportunity to interview Mayor Ed Koch in his Gracie Mansion offices. I remember Koch as a very kind and gracious host, and with that being said, I'm very disappointed in his recent announcement to support the Obama/Biden ticket. Its not because he is supporting his friend Joe Biden, its because he unnecessarily and erroneously demonized Sarah Palin, going as far as to characterize her as 'scary.' When Koch was asked why he felt this way, he...

With Soviet style threats to strike Poland with nuclear weapons, and in the wake of Russia's crushing use of force upon their tiny neighbor in Georgia, I thought this video of Reagan's has become extremely relevant today. Its a far cry from Pat Buchanan pitifully thanking the German's and old Europe for saving his skin by denying Georgia's entry into NATO... with so many appeasement minded individuals writing articles that show a serious disconnect with reality, this speech is a reminder of ...

I was talking about political issues with a friend on fb and it caused me to decide never to do it again. The friend had posted on the topic of Trump, and a Jewish issue of some kind, I think it was one of those unfounded Trump/Antisemitism attacks, so I gently, or not so gently reminded him that Obama's support in Israel was the lowest of any American President in history. The poll I cited was not tilted or partisan in any way, cause it listed Bill Clinton as the Israeli favorite. So it rea...

Everything has changed. The internet has changed. Instead of information on the rise, we have a brand of censorship and authoritarianism that is far removed from filtering just mere obscenity. In the name of combating our own alleged racism, sexism, homophobia, xenophobia, and any other perceived 'isms' or psychological disorders that offend the sensibilities of so-called progressives, we now have an Orwellian situation where you had better watch not only what you say, but what you think...
