Public to Congress: You’re Fired.  Again.

In a stunning development, RoughTruths.com has learned that e-mails containing pre-termination notices went out to over one-third of Congressional Democrats Friday afternoon.  Formal notices will be issued on or about November 2, 2010.  The notices were sent in response to the President’s defiant State of the Union Address defending his deeply unpopular ‘hope and...

Fast Train to Nowhere!

I had intended to write something serious about tonight’s SOU.  And I probably will.  But I just read on the Atlantic website that the President is going to announce funding for an $8-billion High Speed train to ferry unemployed workers around New England and the Middle Atlantic urban centers.  I thought we were broke,...

Is the Iron Chef in Chief Fast Tracking Another Financial Crisis?

Cloudy with a Chance of Meatheads? This week, a panicked American political leadership took important steps toward pushing our financial system off a cliff.    The election loss on Tuesday triggered a round-robin of recriminations, accusations and repositioning by elected politicians around the country.  And on Wednesday the President joined the chorus of confusion with a...

Progressive Pivot: Tax, Blame or Cookies Anyone?

January 22, 2010
By John

Only two (2) days after ObamaCare was thrashed by an aroused Massachusetts electorate, they’re already at it again in Progressiveland.  Like a pack of zombies whose endless appetite for yummy-crunchy-taxpayers was interrupted by a heretofore compliant herd of New Englanders, the Washington liberal elite are scouring the streets and valleys of America in search...

Clueless in the Capital

Opportunity for a Cinematic Revival? It’s finally time for a sequel to the very amusing 1995 film ‘Clueless’.  But this time we can film it as a documentary.  It will be almost as funny, and all you need to do is pull video feeds from YouTube to bring it to the screen. Our stars will be...

Don’t Cry for Me, Massachusetts

January 19, 2010
By John

Whatever the outcome of today’s Senatorial election in Massachusetts, of one thing we can be certain.  Crocodile tears and delusions will surely follow. On the left, a loss of ‘Teddy’s Seat’ will be seen as an outrageous usurpation of power by an obstructionist right.  They will blame Coakley for having failed to make clear the...

Regulate Me Before I Betray You Again!

January 15, 2010
By John

Banking is a great business.  Nobody believes me when I tell them that.  But it is a noble enterprise.  You get to hold your neighbor’s hard-earned savings in exchange for a small amount of interest, you can lend those savings to worthy borrowers and generate a reasonable rate of interest in return, and you...

Save New York – Throw a Little Salt Over Your (left) Shoulder

January 7, 2010
By John

I love New York.  I really do.  It is America’s Gotham.  It vibrates, it jives, it hums, it plays.  It has world class energy with an American flavor.  It’s a safe, beautiful city steeped in some of the most exciting moments in American history. From its founding as a pirate haven to the epic...
