The State of the President’s Alternative Union Speech

Big Red Car here. Bit cloudy in the ATX and looking for some rain.

President Obama reported to the Congress and all of us yesterday on the “state of the union.”  You may wonder which union he was talking about but then you’ve always been a hater, no?

Perhaps you saw it on the telly but if not, here is a link to a transcript of the speech. Oh, go ahead. Read it.

Tax, Tax, Tax and Spend — the President and the Tesla Liberals

Big Red Car here. Oh, boy, the State of the Union speech tonight! Hot dog!

Article II, Section 3 of the Constitution of the United States requires the President to annually report to Congress the “state of the union.”

In the original form, it was typically provided by means of a written report. Today, it is always an annual speech given by the President to a joint session of Congress — House of Representatives and the Senate. Continue reading

Poseurs, poseurs, poseurs everywhere

Big Red Car here. Beautiful, cool Saturday morning. The kind of genuine pleasure that makes even a Big Red Car — not given to humility by its very nature — happy to just be alive.

Big Red Car Scores Exclusive Interview With President Barack Obama

Big Red Car here.  Wow, turns out the President is a regular reader of The Musings of the Big Red Car.

I asked him if he had a minute and we had a nice chat.  He’s not as tall in person as I thought but he was very gracious.  After the interview, we took a tour through Austin and stopped for some Q.  He said he had no money and I had to spring for the Q.  He said it was a new “tax”?

Anyway, here it is — the Big Red Car’s interview with President Obama. Continue reading

Kung Pao Chicken State of the Union Speech

Big Red Car here and it is cold, cold, cold — 27F — here in the ATX.  Not to worry, going to be 70F tom’w.  [Big Red Car is hoping that damn forecast is right because it is cold.]

So I watched the President’s State of the Union speech last night.  It reminded me of kung pao chicken with brown rice.  I love kung pao chicken (shrimp and beef also).

The Pettiness of Failure

Big Red Car here.  The Boss’s Old Man — 95 years old and a career Army guy who received a battlefield commission fighting the Germans in Italy in World War II — has seen a lot of history.  He opines that the current administration is the least accomplished in his lifetime.  There is much evidence to support that assertion.

The Beclowning of American Foreign Policy

Big Red Car here.  The Boss is back home and the weather is a bit milder.  No connection.

Boss was in conversation with an old pal of his.   Both interested in politics and got to talking about the sorry state of American foreign policy in the aftermath of the Syrian debacle.
