Ramblings of an Antiquated Mind

We have met the enemy, and they are ours…

  • Notice how all the Bain Capital talk is shifting the focus from 8.4% unemployment
  • Mitt Romney shouldn’t try to connect with the common man, John Kerry is proof such a tactic never works
  • Barack Obama is not a regular guy either
  • Do we want Joe Schmoe to be our President?
  • There is no doubting the extreme partisanship in American public discourse today
  • Both wings are over the top, so neither side can claim innocence
  • Announcing War of 1812 week on Practically Historical !
  • Americans do not know nearly enough about the War of 1812 and what they do know is probably wrong
  • Canadians think they know a lot about the War of 1812 and most of that is wrong
  • The United States did not make a big mistake declaring war on Britain in 1812
  • The British started the war, in fact, they practically dared us into the fight
  • John Bull took a straight punch to his nose in the war
  • James Madison was an effective war-time President
  • The bicentennial of the War of 1812 is worth celebrating
  • Tell a friend……The War of 1812 is here all week!

Jimmy Madison fights back !
