Where is modern civilization heading?

As a society are we heading in the same direction as the ancient Romans? If so the question becomes.......

Are our leaders fiddling while civilization burns?

While we ponder the question I will post my personal thoughts on this blog. Often I will focus on current events that catch my interest, however I am not and do not pretend to be a news organization. I'm simply a guy with his own thoughts on issues that I believe affect our country and society.

Be forewarned, I have been accused of being a right wing thinker and if that is offensive please move on. Remember, this is my blog and my opinions, and unlike many facets of our already over-governed modern society they are not being forced on anyone.

However, please feel free to leave your comments, good, bad or indifferent, after all this is a free society we live in (at least for now).

"Volt Obummer", An appropriate re-election slogan for November 2012

Back In December of 2011 we featured an article about the Chevy Volt that questioned the insanity behind the massive government subsidies (between $200K and $250K per vehicle) being provided to General Motors to produce a vehicle that consumers are not buying. Well three months later not much has changed, the subsidies are still being given out by the American taxpayer courtesy of President Obummer, unit sales are far below initial numbers predicted by GM and have been downgraded again for 2012, and there are still reports of Volts catching on fire. So when I stumbled across this ad parody for the Volt I just knew I has to pass it on. It comes to us courtesy of the folks at bailoutcost.com, a group that is promoting awareness of the real cost of the GM bailout. Enjoy... I sure did.

Now if I can just find such an ad parody for solar panels produced by Solynda, another company that received massive bailout subsides (upwards of $500 Million) from Obummer and his cronies and promptly went bankrupt virtually before the ink had dried on the bailout agreement.
