President Barack Obama’s leadership has been disastrous

It’s been a gradual process, but we welcome former New York Times columnist Leslie Gelb to the realization that President Barack Obama’s leadership has been disastrous for this country. Last October Gelb wrote, “While Obama inherited rather than caused many of the world’s current crises, his habitual complacency and passivity prevent him from mitigating or resolving them.”

‘Islam(ic)’ and ‘terrorism’

With all the publicity in world-wide publications reporting on Islamic terrorism,  the Obama Administration, and its leader, Barack H. Obama in particular, just can’t associate a connection between the two words, ‘Islam(ic)’ and ‘terrorism’.  In their small world of personal intelligence and actual brains, Islam is known only as a “peaceful religion”.

Southington Environmental Problems Continue!



Recent news account citing the EPA ( Environmental Protection Agency) continue to oversee removal of contaminants from its landfills.   The EPA has designated as Superfund Sites citing that the landfills have been contaminated 25 five years ago.   Amazingly, it will take another 120 years before the town’s own wells before they  can be reopened.
Giving reason for the city of New Britain to negotiate a reasonable contract for the use of our Patton Brook well for the next 120 years since we still own it.


Arpaio Lawsuit Against Obama Amnesty Wins Accelerated Hearing


Just as President Obama is hitting the campaign trail to sell a reboot of his domestic policies ahead of next week’s State of the Union Address, the threat from Islamist militants is again crowding out his messages. Starting eight days ago with the deadly attack in Paris, the president has struggled to gain traction for his calls for more spending, higher taxes and new regulations. The Obama media strategy, on which its authors have been congratulating themselves at length in the political press, is to roll out the speech day after day to targeted geographic and demographic groups. This is not unlike what we saw last year when Islamists in Iraq and Syria destroyed the Democratic Midterm communications strategy and focused national attention on concerns over the president’s foreign policy. The president’s campaign to avoid lame duck status looks similarly imperiled.

"free” community college!

If you think college tuition is expensive now, wait until it is free. Two years of “free” community college sounds wonderful, even though some students who just graduated felt cheated that they did not get it “free” and, in the name of fairness and justice, retroactive reimbursement was immediately demanded.
