KaibCast Week in Review: You Didn’t Build That

Much of the past week’s KaibCasts were devoted to President Obama’s “You didn’t build that” remarks.  Check them out, especially Thursday’s program (which was probably my best for the week).

Monday’s KaibCast: Outsourcer-in-Chief

Host Josh Kaib returns from a lengthy break to discuss the dismal state of the economy, the debate about outsourcing that has engulfed the Presidential campaign, and news that Romney is considering Condoleezza Rice for VP.

My Latest Literary Creations

Long story, but the other day I decided to jot down a few poems.  Sometimes when prose fails me, a little poetry brightens the day.

Future’s Past

Whatever you’ve got,
It’s never enough.
Don’t live your life
Just gathering stuff.

Live every day
as though it’s your last.
Don’t ever forget
the present is the future’s past.

Reflections on the Republican Nomination Process

Let’s just admit it.  We have a pretty stupid process of choosing the Republican nominee.  The Democrats’ process is even more fouled up and overcomplicated, but at least they don’t have to go through with it this time around.  We Republicans, on the other hand, are stuck with a terrible process for choosing the best person to face off against President Obama.

First off, I’d like to know why Iowa and New Hampshire deserve to be first.  Do they have higher IQs?  Are they better judges of character?  Did God grant them the first Caucuses and Primaries just as he gave the Israelites their homeland?  I don’t think so.  These two small states are not representative of the country and do not deserve to be first in line just because they have laid claim to it.

Herman Cain Gets My Vote

Mr. Cain's latest book

If you listened to “Monday’s KaibCast: The Impossible Dream” (10/17), you would have learned that I am supporting Herman Cain for President.  I am a political junkie who is sick of politics.  America needs a principled, well-spoken leader to challenge the President, not some opportunistic shape shifter, psychopathic child hoarder, or incoherent cowboy.  While any of those are preferable to an ideological wealth-destroyer and redistributionist, the GOP can do better.

Lemon Socialism and Crony Capitalism: The Failure of Obamanomics

Originally posted at The Right Wing Blog:

The collapse of solar firm Solyndra is the beginning of the end for Obamanomics.  After more than  32 months on the job, President Obama and his economic (on)crack team have managed to increase the chronic unemployment rate to record highs, increase the national debt to record highs, decrease economic growth to near-record lows, and decrease the President’s approval rating to record lows.  Not exactly great results, but now the solar scandal is exposing why Obamanomics is such a failure.

I say the Solyndra scandal is the beginning of the end because it’s finally shedding light on what’s really behind the administration’s economic policies: lemon socialism and crony capitalism.  These failed ideas are a “toxic combination,” according to Charles Krauthammer, and have been exposed as the backbone of Obamanomics.

That’s how some in the media are referring to the hoopla surrounding President Obama’s upcoming jobs speech in front of a joint session of Congress.  Apparently the conflict between Obama and Boehner now rises to the level of a scandal.
