I am a very proud Citizen of the United States. That took place in early 2008 after a seven year legal journey. As you can imagine, I have some views on immigration which you will find in these pages from time to time.
I was born in London, England and have been American in my attitudes for as long as I can remember. The Constitution should be regarded as a sacred document. Unfortunately as each year passes it seems to be less important. We have a President who told the American People BEFORE he was elected that the Constitution was a "flawed document". That would have been electoral suicide just a few short years ago. I remember when we were trying to help Iraq write it's constitution I said on the radio "we should give them ours! After all, we stopped using it years ago".
I started work as a journalist in 1976 when at the tender age of 16 I got a job on the Jerusalem Post. Recently I have been guest hosting talk radio around the country. Prior to that, you could have heard The Simon Conway Radio Experience.
I am a radio talk show host whose conservative outlook was forged in my native UK, where I experienced the considerable downsides of European-style socialism. I have a unique insight into health care and all the other trappings of a socialist society because I've already lived through where we are headed.
Let’s look at our world shall we? We have a 16 Trillion Dollar debt and counting! (If you started counting now, you’d get to 16 Trillion in around 512,000 years).
We have a foreign policy crisis and an Administration in deep trouble over the assassination of our Ambassador to
We have the lowest workforce participation rate in more than 30 years while the Government fudges the unemployment numbers.
We are facing a fiscal crisis of biblical proportions in January, and the campaign to re-elect the President of the
NOT ONLY THAT, but even Big Bird himself (or is that herself, I’ve never been sure) has its wings in a flap over being “used” by a political campaign.
The list is endless as are the problems we face as a nation. The Obama campaign “excuse” for all of this, is that it’s a really small part of the budget. So is the shrimp on the treadmill and the towel folding robot and the study into why Chimps throw poop! They are all “drops in the ocean”, they tell you.
You kind of hope they are not watching in
China is flexing it’s military muscles, trying to intimidate its neighbors; Iran is really close to having the capability of fulfilling its promise to wipe Israel from the face of the planet and North Korea tells us it has missiles that can reach America. But it’s all OK because President Barack Obama is out there trying to save Bert and Ernie from falling into the hands of evil capitalists!
And let us not forget that the President himself has said, if you have no record to run on, you make the campaign about small things. Those who bow at his alter are apparently taking him seriously.
Actually if you dig deep enough, you might be able to find one other reason for this. Remember the stimulus? Sesame Workshop received more than $1 Million in 2010 and according to the White House itself, it created 1.47 jobs with that money. $726,000 a job!
