Sarkozy is tossed into the political “dustheap of history”


PanAm believes wholeheartedly that as a whole the Europeans are not as commonsensically savvy as the Americans, but nonetheless our  brethren across the pond were smart enough to vote out their fiscally irresponsible leaders… 

Come on, good people of the United States,  don’t dawdle — lickety-split get on the bandwagon and prepare to vote out rascal Obama and other like-minded politicians…

Person of the Week: Valerie Jarrett


Yes, Valerie Jarrett, for urging the U.S. Congress to pass immediately the president’s “jobs bill“, tho’  it has yet to be presented to the Legislative Branch, nor is it reportedly even completely written  ( remember the Health Bill episode?!).  Whatever they do or say and however inaccurate, hypocritical and nonsensical, it seems politicians  such as Ms Jarrett will say whatever they think will put the other branches of government in a bad light — but apparently they are not aware that it reflects most poorly on themselves.

Any wonder why American hold politicians in so low regard? …

Person of the Week: Jerry Lewis, he who “brung ’em”, then was discarded unceremoniously


Jerry Lewis ( tho’  irascible sometimes, yes),  for his lifetime of giving of himself to the Muscular Dystrophy Association so that billions of dollars of charitable contributions could be received that could help advance the search for cures. …  Some might not have appreciated his brand of comedy  nor  his at times politically incorrect statements,  but he more than anyone else put the “MDA” on-the-map, and because of his efforts the Association became a major player in the quest for charitable monies… 

But the sad saga continues, alas, because even charitable organizations are made up of political animals,  made up of those with their own agendas, right or wrong,  with little concern about being thankful  to “old Jerry”, who brung ’em to the “Big Dance”. …

Just sayin’…

Foreigners take jobs from Americans, but want more?


The program seems to be run for the profit of the organizers (without proper explanation to the students that their work will be menial and lowly paid) and seems to lack the simplest of governmental oversight.  Plus, however many pie-in-the-sky platitudes are expressed about improving(!) cultural understanding with foreigners, Americans who are out of work and/or American students ought to be the ones being hired to work these  jobs.  Ship the ungrateful foreign students   back, and scrap the program if it is so poorly run. 

Just sayin’!

A White House more interested in hiding itself from public scrutiny and in staying in power?


 Poverty     is up,  transparency    is down,  Americans are unhappy, but the president is out campaigning to keep his job  and  politicizing      federal governmental agencies… 

Is this the kind of presidency anyone envisioned?

President Obama takes the Black vote for granted because they will vote “race”, regardless?


Previously more than once it has been written on this page that the president has the Black vote in his back pocket, and he acts as if he is sure of it — regardless of how high the unemployment rate is among American Blacks…   Some might complain,  but will it matter in presidential election 2012?

Just sayin”

Cancel Obama’s costly National HealthCare program?


With the current and looming economic shortcomings and budget  uncertainties, why not commonsensically face the harsh realities and cancel the program, or at least postpone it indefinitely until circumstances improve?!
