postheadericon What is there to fear? Americans far more scared of big government than big business

President Barack Obama and the mainstream media like nothing better than to vilify business and dote over the Occupy Wall Street protestors and their attempts to save us from the evils of capitalism.  However, a new poll shows that Americans are far more concerned about their own government than they are business.

Wish as we might have that the snowstorm in Denver that moved through over the last couple of days would have prevented him coming to town, President Obama managed to make it to the Mile High City.  The campaigner-in-chief came bearing gifts in the form of student loan changes that will benefit the average grad […]

Ford Motor Company was the only one of the ‘big three’ Detroit automakers to not take government bailout funding and a recent television ad touted that noteworthy point.  It appears however that the White House pressured Ford to drop the ad, not approving of its message of self-reliance.

postheadericon Colorado or Wyoming? The White House apparently doesn’t know the difference

The intersection of 96th Avenue and Interstate 76 in Adams County is a complicated one with traffic coming from multiple directions.  The recent redesign of the intersection by the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) had many raising eyebrows at its design and now an accident draws attention to its many shortcomings.  The area in question […]
