Who’s the Bigger Goof, Jon Stewart or Jim Cramer? Surprise, the answer is both. One is a funny man who thinks he’s smart and the other is a smart guy who’s trying to be funny.

10. Corporate Greed – Company after company cheats the American consumer and the American worker. Just pick up the newspaper or turn on TV to get the story on the latest company caught cheating. When they cheat, we all lose.

9. Globalization – This benefits the rest of the world and adversely affects America. We are buying cheap goods from China as our balance of trade suffers. Companies move to third world countries and Americans loose jobs. Tell me who is benefiting from Globalization?

8. Service Economy – Manufacturing continues to decline in this country since it’s glory days of World War II. Back then we manufactured just about every product we use in our daily lives. As manufacturing goes overseas we get more dependent on others for our daily needs. This is not a good position to be in folks!

7. Uninformed Americans – a disinterested electorate allows all types of corrupt and incompetent politicians to gain power. We all need to pay more attention to these charlatan candidates. And there are many in both parties. They serve their special interests and not us, their constituents. We need to pay closer attention to whom we elect.

6. Individual self-absorption – Each year we get a little bit more absorbed in our hectic daily lives. Today we have a general lack of community. Common good has become secondary and suffered at the hands of excessive concern of individual wants. A country needs a common purpose or it won’t survive as a society.

5. Crudeness – we are becoming increasingly uncivil to our fellow citizens. Crude movies, attitudes, jokes etc. lead to an overall crude society. The dictionary defines crude as: not mature, rough, coarse, lacking grace, taste or refinement, rude. Are these traits to aspire to as an individual? I, for one, vote for tastefulness instead of crudeness. It doesn’t take any effort or talent to be crude.

4. Special interest groups – Politicians are selling out the country to special interest lobbyist to the detriment of the country and the general well being of the citizens. Are the politicians really working for us or a special interest group that will take good care of them? Why are so many politicians’ multi-millionaires?

3. News Media Bias. News organizations have become political advocates and no longer are the unbiased watchdogs of government and our politicians. They have an agenda and are not above manipulating the news to match their agenda. Viewer beware!

2. Political Correctness is simply an effort by some to control attitude and speech. They want to regulate how we feel, act and speak about groups, gender, age, race, religion and just about everything you could imagine. This is America. We have our freedom to speak and feel as we wish. Political correctness is control of the many by the few.

1. Too much Government – “Big Brother” government is attempting to encroach into every facet of our lives. Federal and state government feel that they know best what is good for you. Bulletin! This is one of the reasons why our ancestors left their homeland to start a new country, America, founded on freedom without all the government control of their lives.

I was talking to a teacher friend of mine the other day and asked her how she was doing. Fine she said but I’m very busy right now with teaching, preparing lesson plans, doing all of the administrative paper work required by the state and school district and volunteering to judge and coach the cheerleaders. WOW! I asked her, how is the crop of cheerleaders look this year? We’ll have about 20 and some are pretty bad but that doesn’t matter because NO one will be cut from the squad. What did you say, no cuts? That’s right no one gets cut because it’s school policy to appease some vocal parents who think everyone should get a spot on the squad regardless of their ability.

Political correctness run amuck again by parents. Heaven forbid some girls get cut from the squad because they are not particularly good at cheerleading. Let’s shield them from any failure at everything in life. We as parents don’t want to shatter their self-confidence or their inflated self-esteem.

A growing number of people in our society are adopting this philosophy of protection from failure. Bulletin to those who adhere to this philosophy, life is about success and failure! It always was and always will be. Sometimes it’s better to let your kids fail at something and find out that they are not good at everything. Failure builds character and will prepare them for the ups and downs of adulthood. A little anxiety is a good thing. Parents, you are your child’s worst enemy if you protect them from the negative side of growing up.

As a single parent with no income, Nadya Suleman could receive thousands of dollars a month in government assistance. The medical bills alone will run into millions of dollars, and it is increasingly likely that taxpayers will foot many of those bills .

Our only salvation is for Angelina Jolie to adopt the Octuplets. This is a win-win situation for Ms. Jolie and we the taxpayers. If we can believe the tabloids Ms. Jolie wants dozens of kids. The taxpayers would be saved Millions of dollars in support for endless years. Ms Jolie is very well off financially and will be able to take care of the children nicely.

Democratic senators Debbie Stabenow, Tom Harkin and Chuck Schumer and others are gearing up to support hearings on “radio accountability” in something called the “Fairness Doctrine”. Government legislating into law control of the programs that free radio stations can broadcast.

Let me repeat that again because it is the next big step toward “Socialism in America” – Government plans to legislate into law control of the programs free radio stations can broadcast. Government controlling the radio – If that isn’t Socialism then nothing is!

These sneaky leftist leaning democrats have the audacity to call it “Fairness”. This is a classic and premeditated misuse of the English language. When did taking away your freedom to listen to whatever you want become Fair?
That’s the plan. They want to mandate and control media (radio) programming. If they control the people’s opinion and perceptions, they remain in power forever.

Our freedom of speech, protected by the First Amendment in the Bill of Rights, is one of our most basic constitutional rights. Tell everyone, friends, family but especially your congressman and senator that you are against the “Fairness Doctrine” or anything like it.

All you need is a good dose of Self-esteem. No, make that an overdose of self-esteem.

Parents remember to praise every little thing that your child does whether they deserve it or not. That will definetely bolster their self-esteem.

Reward and applaud everything they do even if it is not a true accomplishments. This is sure to turn them into an obnoxious adult.

Coddle and overprotect your child at every turn. Take your child’s side on every matter, what does that nasty old teacher know anyway, my little Johnny is an angel.

Set limits for your children, it will make you feel good but you don’t really have to enforce them. It’s much better being a pushover for your child.

When the kids do something wrong always warn them one, two, three, four or more times and just walk away. That will give them strong self confidence.

Mom and Dad definitely do not teach them any manners because this will stifle their creativity. It is much better to let them run wild.

Let you child’s impulses run wild. Do not try to control them and definitely do not teach them to respect the rights of others. After all its all about them isn’t it.
