Paul Potts Can Smile With Confidence

Yesterday, "Britain's Got Talent" winner Paul Potts visited the dentist and was fitted with a new cap for the tooth he damaged when he was still a kid. Paul Potts' was reportedly thrilled with the results of the new capped tooth and without a doubt this one change for Paul will increase his confidence level, if it needed any more boosting, even further. One thing about people in this world that is pretty much universal is that they, sometimes without even meaning it, will stare at differences in other people and that staring has the effect of causing discomfort in others.

Now, people will be able to listen to Paul Potts' wonderful voice and not see a chipped tooth anymore. To me, it didn't matter whether Paul Potts had a chipped tooth or no teeth at all. Paul's voice was what made me happy, but I'm certain that from Paul Pott's point of view having this tooth fixed was a very big deal indeed. Now it is time for Paul Potts to show the world what he can really do and he certainly is on the path of winning the hearts and souls of millions of people around the world with the release of his new CD "One Chance".

Today, Paul Potts new CD goes on sale here in the United States and it will be interesting to follow his record sales over the next few weeks and see just how well he does here in the good old USA. I think many music veterans are going to be blown away by the numbers of CD's sold by Paul Potts in the United States because his exposer here in America has mainly been from YouTube and not radio air play. Look for Paul Potts to be interviewed on broadcast and cable television programs a lot the next few weeks as his new CD climbs the U.S. music charts.

Fred Thompson Raised $3 Million - June

There has been excitement about the idea of Fred Thompson entering the GOP race for president for several months and now the first big test toward making a successful bid for the White House, money raising, has been completed. Fred Thompson raised $3 million dollars in June to bring his total money raised for his yet to be announced campaign to a total of $5 million dollars. This is a large amount of money, by most people's standards, but for a guy that has been touted as the alternative to Rudy Giuliani in the GOP primary it may not be enough.

Yes, there is a bunch of excitement surrounding the Fred Thompson campaign and I personally like this man from Tennessee that I knew long before he entered politics in movies like, "The Hunt For Red October". There is much unrest in the GOP right now within the Ronald Reagan branch of the party. Rudy Giuliani is not a social conservative by any stretch of the imagination and Mitt Romney, while a money raising machine, is not catching on with a majority of the social conservative grass-roots either.

This void of a true social conservative that actually has a chance to win is what is driving the campaign of Fred Thompson and in a way the small amount of money Thompson has raised in comparison to other candidates and yet to announce candidates is proof that the social conservative moment built by Ronald Reagan is not the politically dominating force it once was. Yes, there are still millions of social conservatives that will show up on election day and vote for candidates that support there view of America. However, the "big tent" in the Republican Party has grown smaller since the election of President Bush and many "die hard" GOP voters, like myself, are looking more toward moderation and less toward extremism in the future.

I wish Fred Thompson well in his possible run for the White House and if he eventually comes up unsuccessful it will not be his fault, but instead the blame should go to the steep right direction people like President Bush and former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay took the party in the past five years which had the effect of tearing the Ronald Reagan GOP big tent concept to pieces.

Nicole Wins By Marrying Keith Urban

A few days ago I wrote about the celebration of the one year anniversary of Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban. Since that time I have been thinking about where Nicole Kidman came from and what a nut case Tom Cruise turned out to be during their marriage. Then I got to thinking about what a breath of fresh air Keith Urban must have been for Kidman after living with a religious extremist all those years. Yes, Keith Urban has had his problems too with drug and alcohol abuse. However, there is treatment for that type of problem where there is no known treatment for a self absorbed religious zealot that takes up with a religious cult and devotes his whole life to the cause.

Some folks might think it is strange that I consider Nicole Kidman the big winner in her marriage with Keith Urban, but if all of us would just take a couple of steps back from all the hype that surrounds Hollywood stars, it is not difficult to imagine. Keith Urban offered Nicole a safe home where she could be herself instead of a home controlled by the teachings of L. Ron Hubbard. Considering also that Nicole and Keith Urban are both of Australian decent, there must be a certain common bond between the two just considering they were raised in the same country and with the same type of background.

The Hollywood community would like for you to believe that Keith Urban is the big winner by marring a huge movie start like Nicole Kidman. However, in my view the role of who is actually better off is quite different. In Keith Urban, Nicole Kidman found a man that is not perfect and is also battling his way through life and trying to improve himself one day at a time. In her previous marriage, she had a husband that thought he was prefect to begin with and the only thing that really needed to be changed was his wife to more follow his out of touch religious teachings.

Liberal Media Switch Confuses Rush Limbaugh

I was listening to the Rush Limbaugh Show today and Rush started his program with several audio clips from the "Chris Matthews Show" where liberal reporters were singing the praises of the troop surge in Iraq. I must admit I was taken aback as well listening to a group of reporters that has found nothing positive to report on in Iraq for years. After a funny first half hour, Rush Limbaugh began speculating as to why the mainstream media has all of a sudden started talking positively about the war and in normal Rush Limbaugh fashion the reason eventually got back around to Hillary Clinton and her run for the White House.

On the reasoning behind why the mainstream media has all of a sudden changed there attitude about the War in Iraq, I disagree with Rush Limbaugh. My thinking is that the mainstream press is once again supporting the war effort in Iraq because American troops are starting to make a positive difference in that country. Other than extremist like Rush Limbaugh and Nancy Pelosi, most people in the United States want to hear the truth about what is going on, on the ground in Iraq and most Americans would love to see the United States eventually see a victory in this war. However, there is so much noise on both extremes of this Iraqi War issue that moderation seems to have been thrown under the bus.

From my experience, most members of the mainstream press are followers of American public opinion and most are not political hacks for either the far right or far left in America. My guess is that the mainstream press in the United States is reading public opinion polls that show that most Americans want to win this War in Iraq and then come home. Unlike some people on the far left that want to abandon the people of Iraq when they most need our help. People over the age of 50 remember all to well what happened in Vietnam when U.S. troops were suddenly pulled out of that country. A terrible blood bath followed and hundreds of Vietnamese people that were loyal to a fault to the United States were left behind to be murdered because of our hasty withdrawal.

Rush Limbaugh is always looking for some trick behind what the mainstream media does and says. However, the truth is the mainstream media usually follows the American people in what is the right thing to do.

Paul Potts' Album Rocks United States

Tomorrow, the new album (CD) from Paul Potts goes on sale in the United States. A couple of weeks ago, "One Chance" debuted in the U.K. at number one and the sales of Paul Potts' new CD, in the U.K., were greater than the other top nine (9) CD's, combined. Millions of people have been following the Paul Potts' story through Internet news organizations for the past month or so and at last check, almost twenty (20) million people have downloaded one of Paul Potts' auditions via YouTube.

In recent days, some reporters have tried to criticize Paul Potts' for various reasons, but the good news is that these negative reporters are few and far in between. Sales of Paul Potts' new CD in the United States will be important to the overall plan that Simon Cowell has put into place for promoting Paul's success around the world. I don't believe there will be any problem in the United States for Paul Potts because more so than any other nation, the folks here in the U.S. love an underdog story and Paul Potts fits that template, completely.

This week people in Australia are being visited by there new friend from the U.K. as Paul Potts' album (CD) goes on sale there soon, as well. For this shy, former mobile phone salesman, the life he is living now must seem like some kind of dream to both he and his wife. I look forward to Paul Potts visiting the United States again real soon and hopefully there will be a concert schedule for the U.S. announced before too much longer. "Go Paul Go", millions of people think you are fantastic!

Britney Spears Behaves Badly - Photo Shoot

When Britney Spears was young, she was poor as poor could be growing up in Louisiana. However, it seems like every story that is written by this once famous singing goddess is proving that Britney Spears is every bit the spoiled rotten brad that Paris Hilton is. Is it just the money and fame that has turned a pretty young girl from Louisiana into the likes of Hilton and Lohan or is there something else at work here? Of course, Britney Spears must take responsibility for her own life and the choices she makes when leading that life. However, it is easy for shade tree commentators like myself to pass judgment on a young woman that has yet to mature, even though she has given birth to several children.

There is an old saying from my generation that blames, in a joking way, bad behavior saying, "there must have been something in the water". While Britney Spears has not been drinking any funny water I know of, she has been exposed to a great deal of financial success very early on in her life. Unlike most people in the world that work years to achieve both business and financial success, Britney Spears was thrust onto the front pages of magazines at a very early age and she was also not served well by the people around her that were eager to take advantage of a big pay day when she was hot and then completely turn their backs on her when the problems started.

The next few years are going to be critical for Britney Spears not only for her career, but for her very life itself. Right now there are new stories about people that worked for Britney Spears trying to sell stories about how screwed up she is to the tabloid media. While this practice is common in the entertainment business today, it still doesn't make it right to be nice to someone one day and then sell them down the river when there is a chance at some quick cash. Don't get me wrong, I do not view Britney Spears as a victim in the traditional since of the word. However, it is high time that Britney Spears grows up and starts looking at this world as a realist and the first step on that path is to learn that there are no true friends in the entertainment business.

Barack Obama/Hillary Feud Wrong - Edwards

Another of the many democratic hopefuls for president has weighed in on the Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton war of words. John Edwards who is currently a distance third in the polls behind Hillary and Barack Obama said the current feud between his party's two front runners is wrong. Edwards said that Democrats should be focused on change for America instead of fighting with each other. In my view, what John Edwards is really concerned about is the fact that since Hillary and Barack Obama have been feuding, his campaign has been all but ignored by the news media.

The truth is that it will take an extra special effort by Barack Obama to win the democratic nomination against a seasoned candidate like Hillary Clinton which means that other candidates like John Edwards are just background noise at this stage of the campaign. The past three weeks, the John Edwards campaign has been looking for anyway to jump start their campaign and this effort has been almost totally unsuccessful. Unlike Barack Obama and Hillary, Edwards' campaign has not caught on because his view of America is pretty much universally panned by most Republicans and Democrats.

If Barack Obama really wants to win over Hillary Clinton in the Democratic Party, he needs to do more attacking and not less at this stage of the campaign. Without Barack Obama attacking some of Hillary Clinton's positions, she will win the nomination and most likely will be our next President. In either case, John Edwards has a minimal chance of getting the democratic nomination so Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton will most likely ignore him in upcoming months.

Hillary Like Bush/Cheney - Barack Obama

First let me say that I am not a Democrat or Republican, but I do consider myself slightly right of center when it comes to national politics. As a middle man, I found it quite amusing last week when Barack Obama referred to Hillary as "Bush/Cheney like" after she criticized his answer to a debate question on CNN about talking to dictators around the world. While I consider Barack Obama a superior candidate to Hillary Clinton, Obama's answer to that question was naive and he should have been made to pay for that honest answer on his part.

Sure, in a perfect world everyone talks to everyone else in an effort to find and reach common ground. However, with some of these two bit thugs there is no common ground to be found and many of them will take our efforts at compromise and use our own hard work at peace against us. Most Americans desire a peaceful world, but in some far away places the last thing power hungry dictators want is peace and the reason is they don't understand the benefits of peace in the first place.

Barack Obama is playing right now to extremist elements on the far left in the Democratic Party that believe there is never a good case for going to war. While most Americans of all political political points of view believe war should be the last course of action in a troubled world, there are some folks that believe that war should be stopped at all cost and for any reason. In my view, Barack Obama was hurt by his comments the other day acknowledging his willingness to meet with some world dictators that are nothing more than thugs and bully's in a world that mainly desires peace.

From the early days of mankind there have been people that desire peace and those that are obsessed with war. The last thing the U.S. needs right now as a President of the United States is a leader that believes that all war is wrong from a moral point of view. Of course, the United States should try to avoid war and find other ways to solve the problems of this world. However, to take a no war stance, under any circumstance, in a post 911 world is more than naive and borders on insanity. So far, Barack Obama has made few "rookie mistakes" in his campaign for president. However, he made a big one when he said that he would meet with and give credibility to dictators that are also killers of people that oppose there totalitarian ways of government.

Another Bad Week For Britney Spears

It is safe to say that Britney Spears has, once again, had a bad week. First, there are reports that her mother is all but abandoning her because she refuses to listen to reason and now reports are coming out of Las Vegas that Britney Spears long time bodyguard has been accused of assaulting a photographer during her visit earlier this week. The love/hate relationship between celebrities like Britney Spears and the photographers that follow them around is legendary. Celebrities like Britney Spears would not be as famous as they are without the attention of the paparazzi, but most famous people want to control the pictures and the timing of those photographs for there own person advantage.

Over the years, the money folks in Hollywood have started paying more money for celebrity pictures of Britney Spears and others in compromising situations than they are willing to pay for pictures of these same stars in just regular everyday situations. This is the reason that Hollywood paparazzi are hanging out at all hours of the day and night follow famous people like Britney Spears around the streets of Hollywood and Las Vegas. While I totally disagree with the choices Britney Spears is making in her personal life, I do come down on her side when it comes to rude and out of control paparazzi that follow celebrities like a bunch of parasites.

Like the other two Hollywood bad girls, Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton, only time and a bunch of pain will change the current bad habits of Britney Spears. Unlike Hilton and Lohan, Britney Spears has a couple of children that she should put at the top of her priority list. In fact, the children of Britney Spears is the main reason I believe that Britney Spears will have to best chance of turning her life around. Unless Britney is a total narcissist, her heart will eventually lead her in the right direction if for no other reason than her kids might be disappointed in her public acts of dysfunction.

Carrie Underwood Rocks Delaware State Fair

In a build up to the release of her yet to be named second album (CD), Carrie Underwood took to the stage in Harrington, Delaware this week at the Delaware State Fair and won the hearts of thousands of new fans. From reports, most of the entertainers at the State Fair of Delaware are very country oriented, so Carrie Underwood picked some unusual songs to preform including the Guns N' Roses hit, "Sweet Child O' Mine". Isn't it par for the course that Carrie Underwood would make a choice of songs that not only proved to everyone that she is much more than just a country music star, but a multi facaded entertainer.

People in the audience that had never heard of Guns N' Roses were reportedly dancing and singing along with Carrie Underwood while she preformed many songs in a 75 minute set of music that came across as a blast to folks in the audience. Regular readers here know first hand that I love the whole idea of Carrie Underwood which includes her good looks, great talent and the type of moral values that are missing too much in the world today. In a nut shell, if Carrie Underwood didn't exist, a person like her would need to be invented to help the young people of today to have a positive role model.

On most days I only hear negative stories about young people like Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan and Britney Spears. These three young women could never hold a candle to Carrie Underwood on Carrie's worst day. Maybe I am just getting too old, but it amazes me that most young people are able to grow up and be successful these days considering even the mainstream media turn criminals and misfits into superstars. While there are many problems with famous people, Carrie Underwood is needed in the worldwide spotlight to prove to young people they can succeed by doing the right thing in life rather than only having negative role models that seem to mess up their lives on a daily basis.

Can Fred Thompson Win GOP Nomination?

Many people have been writing and talking about the potential entry of Fred Thompson into the GOP race for President of the United States in 2008. However, few people have really considered what Fred Thompson's actual chance of success might be. I believe Fred Thompson has a good chance at earning the GOP nomination for president, but there are a few things currently missing from his yet to be announced campaign that need to be added for him to become his party's nominee for president.

The biggest stumbling block right now for Fred Thompson is that "fire in the gut" desire for the job. On several occasions, Fred Thompson has said that he has no real desire to become the President of the United States and that he is only considering a run because there is not a strong conservative that can win in the race right now. When a person applies for the position of the "leader of the free world" that person must want the job very much or they will not be successful. I have real concerns about Fred Thompson's desire for the job and I believe this lack of conviction could doom his potential chances at earning his party's nomination.

The second biggest problem currently facing the Fred Thompson campaign for president is his young wife. While there is nothing wrong with people decades apart in age finding true love and getting married, there are real problems for Fred Thompson when his wife is also serving as the chairman of his campaign. Fred Thompson needs an experienced professional to run his campaign and not his wife. Already, some insiders are saying that Fred Thompson's wife is taking over all aspects of his run for the White House and so far several key figures have decided to leave the campaign because they cannot get along with Fred Thompson's wife.

The lack of a full time, quality campaign manager and the lack of "fire in the gut" for the job of President of the United States could take an early toll on the Fred Thompson campaign for president. While most people like Fred Thompson right now, those feeling could fade quickly if it looks like he really doesn't want the job and if he runs his campaign through nepotism with his wife leading the campaign effort.

Kidman - Keith Urban One Year Together

According to recent reports, Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban have started bonding well to there new marriage. From all reports their first year of marriage was hard, but from my point of view nothing will cement a relationship faster than a few bumps along the road to ultimate happiness. The big question now is, will Keith Urban be able to stay clean and sober for the rest of his life? Of course, there will be setbacks along the way because very few people that suffer with dependency problems remain clean and sober for a lifetime without some kind of relapse.

The past month, Kidman and Keith Urban have been able to spend most of there time together at their home in Australia. Kidman is filming a new movie called, "Australia" while Keith Urban was also on tour in Australia at the same time. Both Kidman and Urban have been heard to say that the past month was a wonderful experience for there marriage and the extra time that they have had available for this extra bonding is really a good thing for both of these young people. I love to watch Nicole Kidman movies and I really love to hear Keith Urban sing his special brand of country music.

A few days ago, Keith Urban preformed an exciting concert in the "quad cities" and the reviews I read about the show were outstanding and very positive. Millions of people are touch when Keith Urban sings and his sold out concerts are quite common around the world. I hope and pray that Keith Urban will be able to stay on the straight and narrow path of sobriety and I also hope that his marriage and music career withstand the test of time.

Terrible Reviews For Lindsay Lohan's New Movie

Troubled Hollywood star and infamous all night party girl, Lindsay Lohan, is getting even more bad news this weekend as once favorable movie critics are pretty much universally panning her new movie called, "I Know Who Killed Me". By now everyone on Earth knows that Lindsay Lohan is going through a battle with drug and alcohol abuse, that is everyone knows that fact except for Lindsay Lohan herself.

I wrote a few days ago about the most recent discovery that Lindsay Lohan was seen going to parties with alcohol while at the same time getting treatment in a rehab facility. Of course, actions like this show that Lindsay Lohan does not take her problem with drugs seriously and it also proves that she is just playing a publicity game with the public and law enforcement officials. In my opinion, law enforcement in the LA area have had enough of the likes of Lindsay Lohan treating the legal process as something only other people must follow.

There is an old saying in the drug rehabilitation business that says that some people must hit "rock bottom" before they can start the path to real healing. I believe that saying is especially true for Lindsay Lohan and other Hollywood brats that don't know the difference between reality and fantasy. My guess is that Lindsay Lohan will have to hit rock bottom before she honestly reaches out for real help. One more step in that bottoming out process will probably come when her new movie, "I Know Who Killed Me" bombs out at the box office.

Updated 'CAFE' Standards Nancy Pelosi Silent

A few weeks ago, the U.S. Senate passed new 'CAFE' standards for automobiles, but momentum for this new standard is languishing in the U.S. House of Representatives because of a lack of vocal support from Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Yes, the automobile business is in bad shape and yes these new standards are going to hurt them in the short run but this is the right thing to do for the long term health of the United States. Right now, it seems like Nancy Pelosi and many other Members of Congress are spending all of their time investigating the Bush administration instead of doing the job they were sent to Washington to preform in the first place.

Without the 'CAFE' standards from the past, most of us would still be driving cars and trucks that got less than 10 miles to gallon of fuel economy today. The best part about the 'CAFE' standards are that they force all automakers to compete on a level playing field in order to achieve a good result. Without federal 'CAFE' standards there will always be a few companies that will sacrifice long term good in order to achieve short term profit over companies that are doing the right thing. Nancy Pelosi should try and get control of her fellow democratic Members of Congress and get them focused on success rather than spending all there time trying to destroy President Bush who will be out of office soon enough anyway.

Most automobile companies are very short sighted when it comes to new innovation of there cars and trucks. The entire industry has a very short time horizon view of the automobile business and unless the government step up and applies pressure to do the right thing, the right thing never seems to get done. I know it is hard for Nancy Pelosi and other Members of Congress to stand up to automobile special interest, but they should and the first big step that needs to be taken is a revision in the 'CAFE' gas mileage standards for all U.S. cars trucks and SUV's.

Deep Denial In Paris Hilton's Mind

After serving jail time for repeatedly violating her parole, Paris Hilton visited the Larry King Live Show a few days after her release and told Larry that she had not taken illegal drugs in her entire life. While anything is possible, I find that statement by Paris Hilton as nothing more than living in a state of complete denial and it shows even more evidence that she has a long way to go before she is able to start the healing process in her life.

Either every reporter that follows Paris Hilton for a living is lying about her drug use or Ms. Hilton is lying to the public via the Larry King Show. Considering some of the answers to questions she gave on that show, I find it hard to really believe anything Paris Hilton has to say about just about anything. She lives in a fantasy world where unfortunately for her outside people sometimes get in the way and try and make her play by the same rules as everyone else.

It is too early to say that Paris Hilton is a "lost cause", but she may be getting close because every year that goes by without her coming out of her fantasy shell and learning the benefits of living in the real world, will work against her. If there was a poll taken of the most hated person in the world right now, I am sure that Paris Hilton would rank high in the survey. However, I find it hard to hate Paris Hilton because she was not born the way she is today; instead she was turned into a brat by her parents by not providing the necessary no answers to bad requests during her childhood.

People Love To Hate Rush Limbaugh

While his views are extreme, I find myself listen to at least some of the Rush Limbaugh Show each weekday. I don't listen to Rush Limbaugh to be politically pulled in one direction or another, but to get his conservative take on the issues of the day. The reason I enjoy listening to Rush Limbaugh is because he has masterfully found a way to express his right wing viewpoint that is fun to listen to even when I do not agree with his stand on the issue.

Of course, not everyone shares my opinion of Rush Limbaugh and some of the nastiest negative commentary about him comes from people with a liberal perspective about politics in the United States. Don't get me wrong, I believe there are many liberals that totally disagree with Rush Limbaugh, but at the same time enjoy listening to him on the radio. Then there are the rabid types that believe in the old saying, "my way or the highway" who consider Rush Limbaugh the biggest threat to their vision of what would be best for America.

Rush Limbaugh has been on the radio for almost 20 years now and his weekly audience is somewhere between 20-30 million people. I don't believe for a minute that all or even most of the people that listen to Rush Limbaugh each day are far right wing nuts that stay hold up in there country home with assault weapons in fear of the government showing up and taking them away. Most people that regularly listen to Rush Limbaugh do so because he is a very funny man if the listener does not take his message too seriously.

Rush Limbaugh is heard on over 600 radio stations around the country and his show is an important part of my day because at some point during his show, Rush finds a way to make me laugh about one of the more serious issues of the day.

Negative Reporters Attack Paul Potts Success

As predictable as the sun coming up in the morning, everyone on Earth that has a talent which explodes on the scene like Paul Potts' did will find a few negative "stick in the mud" reporters that will make it their mission in life to destroy that success. After a pretty much positive month, now Paul Potts is being ravaged by some members of the news media that don't like him because his new CD "One Chance" has outsold all the other top ten albums in the U.K. combined during it's first week of sales.

The good news is that millions of people felt a connection with Paul Potts when they heard his story and millions more felt a deep emotional reaction in their gut when Paul Potts' opened his mouth and first started singing to the public. When it comes to members of the press and broadcast media there have always been and there will alway be miserable people that believe the only way they will ever be happy is to bring someone else down. That is exactly what is happening right now to Paul Potts and frankly I think some of the stories I have read on the Internet are down right cruel.

In the semi final competition of "Britain's Got Talent", Paul Potts talked about being bullied by kids in school because he was different. Now as a grown man, bully's in the media are picking on Paul Potts' once again by making comments about his weight and teeth and even a few insulting his talent as a singer. So far, Paul Potts' has been able to weather this storm and for that I say, good for him. I'm sure Simon Cowell understands exactly what will happen to Paul Potts during this first year of his new career and I hope and pray that Simon will continue to keep Paul Potts under his wing until some of these stupid reporters move on to other people with whom they will try to destroy.

Hillary Under Attack From Barack Obama

It was bound to happen that Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama would start taking pot shots at each other and that political reality started in earnest this week. Hillary took the first shot at Obama with her debate comment about how she would not meet with some foreign leaders during her first year as our new president. A few days later, Barack Obama took the gloves off as well and attacked Hillary's early support of the War in Iraq and her senate vote to send U.S. troops to that country as being Bush/Cheney like.

It's about time that Barack Obama started acting like a real candidate for president instead of just a nice looking guy on a poster. Hillary did score points with her attack on Barack Obama during the debate and now we are going to see how well Obama can fight back when challenged by a seasoned political heavyweight. While I like the idea of Barack Obama, his actual stand on the issues has starting to concern me more and more everyday. Especially, his pacifist attitude about the use of military force, even in situations where this country is directly threatened.

A political battle is good for the United States because most politicians have a message and they do there darn well best not to stray away from that message during campaign appearances. However, when there are at least two candidates with a chance of winning the democratic nomination for president there will be occasions when the candidates will be forced to ad lib there thoughts and feelings and at that point the voters have the opportunity to see how a particular candidate really feels about an issue and also how well they handle a stressful situation.

Neither Hillary or Barack Obama has been put under the political stress test so far this year and it is time for both of these contenders for the democratic nomination for president to let the voters see there thought making process during moments of crisis.

Wife Of Fred Thompson Under Pressure

Well it was bound to happen and now people on the right and left are attacking Fred Thompson's young wife for exerting too much control over his campaign for President. When I say it was bound to happen, I mean that considering the age difference between Fred Thompson and his wife, the political pundits and high priced advisers that want to hook up with potential winning candidates were never going to accept marching orders from a woman younger then they are on behalf of Fred Thompson.

Politics is a violent sport even on a clear day and when you mix presidential politics and a well known actor and politician like Fred Thompson with a wife almost half his age, there are going to be problems in the GOP. To be honest, I believe Fred Thompson is just going through the motions of trying to get the GOP nomination for President of the United States. He has said himself on television that he really does not have a big desire to become the president and that one statement causes me to take pause as to why he is seeking the office in the first place.

Like many other famous people from Hollywood, Fred Thompson has dated and is currently married to a woman that could easily be his daughter. While I have no problem with people of all ages finding true love in people half their age; I do not believe I am in the majority holding that view. There are still some very old fashion kind of folks out there in American and most of these conservative thinking people are members of the Republican Party. That fact makes it difficult for Fred Thompson to get a foot hold on the party's nomination and no amount of hype can change some of these deep held feelings before the 2008 presidential election.

Lindsay Lohan - Rehab Just A Legal Move

Well, the most famous drunk driver in Hollywood, since Mel Gibson, Lindsay Lohan is back in rehab once again. This young lady has so many problems it would probably take a professional therapist years just to get to the heart of the problem. Only a few hours after being released from rehab, Linsday Lohan was once again drinking, taking drugs and driving recklessly down an LA freeway a couple of days ago. This time Lindsay Lohan was angry at the mother of a former employee of hers and I guess that in her drug induced state she thought it was a good idea to chase this person down using her automobile.

After listening to several interviews on television recently, it is become clear that the last two stints at rehab by Lindsay Lohan were nothing more than publicity stunts designed by her handlers to help her public image after recent run ins with the law. In Linsday Lohan's second visit to rehab this year, she apparently checked herself out of the rehab clinic on a couple of occasions so she could attend a party where alcohol was being served. No clear thinking person that understands the real dangers of alcohol abuse would ever put themselves into a position like that to begin with.

Now Linsday Lohan is back in rehab again, but my gut feeling is that once again she has entered rehab not to get better, but to once again try and beat the legal system. After watching Paris Hilton try and fail to convince a court not to send her to jail, I believe Linsday Lohan will fail as well and some serious jail time is in her immidate future because of her reckless behavior due in part to drug abuse. The only way Linsday Lohan is going to get better is when she stands up and admits to herself that she has a problem and desires to get better. Until that day, rehab is just a huge waste of money and in some ways will probably do Linsday Lohan more harm than good.

Finally Nancy Pelosi Gets Something Accomplished

Yesterday, the federal minimum wage was increased for the first time in years and at last, Nancy Pelosi and her fellow democrats that regained power in Washington after last November's elections can claim that finally something they promised was actually accomplished. To be honest, I can't think of anything else Nancy Pelosi and other democratic leaders promised in the lead up to last November's elections has actually happened in Washington since they took over.

Of course, the big issue that most democratic congressional candidates promised was that they would start pulling U.S. troops out of Iraq and/or force a change in the military strategy of President Bush. That promise was a big one that few people in the know believed was possible, but that big promise is something that many people on the far left politically in the United States expected to be carried out when they supported democratic candidates for Congress, like Nancy Pelosi, with both there money and their votes last November. Now events in Iraq are starting to look better and there is a chance that President Bush's troop surge might actually be succeeding which can not be good news for Nancy Pelosi and other democratic leaders that all but said the War in Iraq was lost only a few short weeks ago.

While I have been tough on President Bush and his stubborn style of leadership as our President, I would like to at least give credit where credit is due to Nancy Pelosi for pushing through a much needed increase in the U.S. minimum wage that would for certain not be law today if democrats had not been victorious in last Novembers congressional elections.

Left Tries To Silence Rush Limbaugh

While some people believe that the fairness doctrine will not be reimposed on radio talk shows like Rush Limbaugh, I believe there is a good possibility that far left liberals will try to silence him. Millions of people listen to Rush Limbaugh every day and on most days I count myself as one of those millions. As Rush Limbaugh is fond of saying, "he created the new media in this country" and on that fact he is correct. Before Rush Limbaugh, AM radio was a wasteland of stations that no one listened to anymore because FM was better for music delivery.

Many on the far left have tried and failed to draw millions of listeners to there point of view, but most have failed miserably unlike the mega success of Rush Limbaugh. It is pretty easy to see why conservative talk radio succeeds while its liberal counterparts seem to always fail. The reason is that conservatives view the world with a positive point of view and liberals seem to always be unhappy and angry at someone or something about the world. Let's face it, life is hard enough without someone on the radio trying to make our day even worse than it already is.

The very fact that some liberal politicians are discussing openly the possibility of re instituting the fairness doctrine proves that they want to silence the voice of Rush Limbaugh and others that view the issues of the day from a different point of view. What liberal politicians keep missing when they try and beat Rush Limbaugh is the entertainment factor of his show. Rush Limbaugh always uses humor when expressing his point of view, unlike liberal talk show hosts that have no humor and only anger when talking about this country. To use a term from Rush Limbaugh, if liberal would just "lighten up" just a little bit instead of being angry all the time, they might find an audience of Americans that would be eager to listen to their view point on issues, as well.

Barack Obama Against Most Military Action

I have written here many times about my support for Barack Obama and that support is built around my belief that he has the ability to have strong liberal beliefs, but also have the ability to find reason in an unreasonable world. When asked the other day about the potential of genocide in Iraq if U.S. troops are pulled out too quickly, Barack Obama said that U.S. troops should not be used anywhere in the world to stop the practice of genocide. Needless to say that response by Barack Obama sent a chill up my spine because serial killers in the form of dictators have been apart of this world for centuries and unless someone with conviction stands up to them, countless millions of people will be killed for no reason.

Like most people I am against using U.S. troops to nation build around the world, but when some crazy dictator gets it in his head that the best way to solve his problems are to kill millions of people based on their skin color or religious beliefs, a superpower needs to stand up and say, "over my dead body". There is always a balancing act between good and evil in this world and the best way to see evil grow is for the "good guys" to bury there heads in the sand and make believe that nothing bad is happening as millions of people are murdered. The world learned a big lesson in World War II and unfortunately those lessons have not been learned by Barack Obama.

I still like Barack Obama, but if he doesn't show some backbone when it comes to real life issues of life and death around the world, he is going to go down in flames to front runner Hillary Clinton. The American people know the difference between a liberal that is slow to use military force and a liberal that refuses to use military force under any circumstance including the protection of this land we all love. Barack Obama is playing with the big boys and girl now and he had better come up with a better answer than military force should never be used around the world, or his campaign is going to be toast before it even really gets started.

New Britney Spears Tell All Interview Talk

According to Internet news reports, Britney Spears is ready to have a "tell all" interview with OK! Magazine. I heard that Britney Spears has fired just about everyone in her life and actually negotiated the interview deal by herself. How do you spell disaster? When it comes to poor judgment, Britney Spears takes the cake and my guess is that when she sits down with OK! Magazine she will blame all of her problems on everyone except herself.

It is amazing that anyone is really that interested in reading about Britney Spears anymore. Like many of the famous "boy bands" of the 1990's, Britney Spears was pretty much created more for her Barbie doll image than for her real musical talent. Now with her entire life in shambles, if Britney Spears stays true to form; she will blame all of her problems like drug abuse which lead to rehab on someone else. Narcissism runs wild in the Hollywood community and that leads to tremendous denial which eventually leads to destroyed lives and sometimes even the death of famous people.

I guess there is a possibility that Britney Spears wants to do this interview with OK! Magazine to take responsibility for mistakes in her life and start the healing process, but if she does it will be a huge shock to almost everyone in the world. My feeling is that Britney Spears with use this magazine interview to strike out at everyone that loves her and to continue to blame problems in her life on everyone except herself.

Bright Teams With Carrie Underwood On CD

Carrie Underwood has decided to team up with Mark Bright once again for her follow up album (CD) to "Some Hearts". Carrie Underwood's new album is yet to be named, but Mark Bright worked with her on most of the songs contained on "Some Hearts" so expectations are high for her new album. I love to write about Carrie Underwood because her voice an attitude about life is a breath of fresh air in a world of trash and tabloidism.

It is difficult for me to believe that Carrie Underwood has only put out one CD so far because I seem to hear music from that one CD all the time on the radio. In a way, it is good for Carrie Underwood fans that she takes the time to make a good quality CD with many songs that become hits on the radio, rather than placing just one good song on a CD and hoping that fans will tolerate a bunch of bad music just to hear that one song. I'm sure Carrie Underwood fans will snatch up copies of her new CD when it is released later this year.

On another note, I would like to publicly thank the folks over at carriefans.com for posting many of the news updates I write about in regards to Carrie Underwood. There is no doubt that the webmaster and thousands of fans that visit that forum each day love Carrie Underwood very much and I just wanted to acknowledge that forum and encourage other people that love Carrie Underwood to visit and discuss there feeling about her over there. This world is filled with such negativism when it comes to famous people, but there are several places that are an Oases from that negative energy and carriefans.com is one of those safe places.

Paris Hilton Falls For Australian Car Thief

Just when it seemed that everything strange had already happen to Paris Hilton, news is now coming out of Hollywood that she has been seen with a young man by the name of Tyler Atkins, a young man from Australia. Before moving to the United States, Mr. Atkins' biggest claim to fame was stealing cars. However, now that Tyler Atkins has moved to the U.S. he has turned his life around and now spends his time dating rich and beautiful young women like Paris Hilton and designing T-Shirts and doing some modeling.

I remember hearing excerpts of Paris Hilton's interview on Larry King Live where she said that she was a changed woman after serving jail time recently for a DUI probation violation and part of that change would be to drop the dumb act and start acting like a more intelligent young woman. Well, if Paris Hilton truly believes that dating someone like Tyler Atkins is going to prove that she is now acting more mature in the eyes of the American people, I guess she just doesn't understand what acting more mature is really all about.

While it is fun entertainment for most people to follow the self destructive life of Paris Hilton, the truth is that she is not very smart when it comes to using common sense in life and the reason Paris Hilton finds it so difficult to live a normal life free of trouble is because she has never been taught boundaries by her parents. Since the beginning of time there have been stories about people being born with a "silver spoon in their mouths" and those stories have always ended in the same way with a person ill equipped to deal with life in a reasonable way. Yes, it is fun to watch Paris Hilton mess up everything in her life; but it is also sad to see such a young person already in so much personal trouble and no family member in sight trying to express "tough love" in order to save them.

Fred Thompson Abortion Stand Investigated

If Fred Thompson didn't already understand the lengths opponents would go to in order to destroy a fellow candidate, he certain understands that now. The past couple of weeks, Fred Thompson has been under attack because his sons work for a lobbying firm in Washington D.C. and within the past few days, Thompson's switching stance, over the years, on the abortion issue has also taken on a more intense fever.

I have written here on more times than I can count that U.S. politics need a third party because the Republicans and Democrats have both sold there souls to special interest on the far right and far left in the United States. The good news is that most Americans are not extremist and most of the time regular mainstream voters try and pick the lessor of two evils on election day. Fred Thompson should be a shew in for the nomination of the GOP considering the large numbers of far right social conservatives that make up that party's primary's, but since President Bush has alienated many GOP voters with his stand on issues like immigration reform, the GOP based is not only disgusted; but down right angry with many members of their own party.

These new attacks on Fred Thompson's changing stand on abortion are probably coming his way in a covert way via the Rudy Giuliani campaign. Since Rudy is in the lead in most polls and his stand on issues like abortion are not in the mainstream of the Republican Party, it only makes since that Rudy's campaign would reap the biggest benefit from a crippled Fred Thompson campaign for president. I have as of yet not seen the "fire in the gut" from Fred Thompson and without that egotistical desire for this nations highest office, I doubt if Fred Thompson will be able to withstand the tremendous stress and pressure involved in earning the job of President of the United States.

Rehab Clinic Saved Keith Urban Marriage

A few days ago, Keith Urban said that his rehab at the Betty Ford Clinic saved his marriage to Nicole Kidman. Like many other famous people around the world, living a life of fantasy, can cause good people like Keith Urban to slip into the dark world of drug and alcohol abuse and potentially destroy the very foundation of there personal lives. While I know that many true blue Keith Urban fans were not that pleased when he decided to marry Nicole Kidman in the first place, the truth is that he loves her very much and that is what's really important.

Another fact to keep in mind is that even though Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman were not married that long before Keith checked into the Betty Ford Clinic, Kidman stood by her man like an old pro and credit should be given where credit is due to her for that act of courage. The sad truth is that most people that enter rehab facilities are prone to relapse and I'm sure Nicole Kidman knows that fact all to well. Rather than heading for the hills and chalking up her marriage to Keith Urban as a huge mistake, Nicole stood by her man even though there is a big chance he will relapse and once again start drinking or taking drugs somewhere down the road.

It is easy for me to see the real love Keith Urban has in his heart for his wife and at times like these I am truly happy that this couple decided to call Nashville home instead of Hollywood California. Sure there are problems in Nashville just like any other city, but it seems to me that people that are struggling with an alcohol or drug addiction problem should stay as far away from Hollywood as possible just because the track record of recovery is so poor in the wide open world of Hollywood in both the music and movie industry.

Paul Potts Story - Movie Deal Possible

Just when I thought everything possible from a positive point of view had already happened to Paul Potts, now people in the motion picture business are talking about making a Paul Potts' movie based on his real life story. Hey, anything positive and even profitable that comes Paul Potts' way is fine by me because I believe this young man from the U.K. is going to take the world by storm within the next 30 days and it only makes sense that if people love Paul Potts' and his amazing voice they also might be interested in hearing about his real life ups and downs as well.

Paul Potts' has made it clear on many different occasions when interviewed by the press that while he wants to share his voice with the rest of the world, he personally has no intention of changing his way of life nor the people that have stood by him during the hard times. Paul Potts' has said that he envisions his life pretty much the same as always, with the exception of not having to struggle as much financially. He told the NBC television network that he didn't desire fancy cars or big houses to make his life worth while.

What Paul Potts' is afraid of is losing everything that is important to him as the worldwide spotlight continue to grow on his amazing talent as an Opera singer. With a certain multi-million selling album (CD) on his immediate horizon and a movie deal that could earn him even more money, I hope that Paul Potts' has the strength to stand up for his principles and keep his life pretty much the same as always. If Paul continues to support his family and doesn't go the way of normal Hollywood personalties, he might have a good chance of living the life of his dreams which includes music, movies and a family that loves and adores him.

Lindsay Lohan Arrested On DUI Charges

On Friday, Lindsay Lohan surrendered herself to police in Los Angeles on charges that she was drunk when she was involved in a motor vehicle accident over the Memorial Day holiday weekend. Lindsay Lohan was booked and then released on her own recognizance the same day. Over the past six weeks, Lindsay Lohan has been in rehab, again to deal with issues of alcohol and drug abuse and everyone hopes that this time Ms. Lohan will be able to stay clean and sober.

While people around the world are hungry to hear stories about how the rich and famous keep messing up there own lives, the truth is that Lindsay Lohan is a real human being and not just some character in a book or motion picture. I remember watching in horror the events leading up to this accident that sent Lindsay Lohan to the hospital with injuries. The reason I remember the accident is because members of the Hollywood paparazzi were following Lindsay Lohan's every move that night and they were also on hand when Ms. Lohan lost control of her car and skidded into a tree.

While the antics of famous folks like Lindsay Lohan might be exciting and interesting to watch on television, the truth is that the reason the paparazzi are follow Lindsay Lohan is because she is out of control and no one knows what she will do next. Right now, Lindsay Lohan is big news and as long as she keeps doing the wrong things in life the paparazzi and tabloid news media will continue to follow her around in the hopes of catching her doing something wrong. Sometimes I don't know which is worse... Lindsay Lohan drinking and driving or an ever present paparazzi following her around with the hope of filming a tragedy somewhere in her path.

Oprah Helps Barack Obama Raise Money

Barack Obama has already set records in fund raising for his bid to win the democratic nomination for president and his "good friend" Oprah will soon be helping him even more. In September, Oprah will host a fund raiser in California for Barack Obama that will help this unlikely underdog for President of the United States raise even more money in his attempt to secure the democratic nomination.

Everyone knows how many friends Bill and Hillary Clinton have in the Hollywood community, but until Oprah and a few other entertainment big names came forward recently for Barack Obama, few people really knew about the famous that are lining up to support Obama. Barack Obama is an exciting man to listen to even if you don't totally agree with him on all the major issues of the day. I am against socialism in the United States so you might think that I wouldn't support Barack Obama, but in some ways I do like Obama because I believe this man has the ability to hold on to his core beliefs, but at the same time search for compromise with others that are not as extreme in their point of view.

Oprah will most likely help Barack Obama raise millions of extra dollars for his White House bid and he is going to need all the money he can raise to beat Hillary Clinton for the democratic nomination. Everyone knows how Bill and Hillary Clinton win elections and that is to destroy the credibility of there opponents. This is why Barack Obama must raise huge sums of money because he is going to need that money to fight back against endless attacks by the Clinton's through television commercials as the first major presidential primaries pop on the scene in the first part of next year.

Rush Limbaugh $10 Federal Cigar Tax

Some people in the federal government completely lose there minds when it comes to far right conservative Rush Limbaugh. A few weeks ago, some notable democratic politicians decided that the time might be right to bring back the "Fairness Doctrine" and now some folks in the democratic party believe it would be a good idea to tax cigar's at the rate of $10 each. Both of these ideas, proposed by democrats, are aimed at Rush Limbaugh and both are going to fail just because they are stupid and an a front to free speech.

Modern day political extremist on both sides are becoming less and less tolerant of the opposing sides point of view, so some folks try to find ways to silence opposition to there point of view. Rush Limbaugh's show reaches around 20 million people each week and my guess is that millions of that large number are not ultra conservatives at all, but moderates and liberals that love Rush Limbaugh as an entertainer even though they do not agree with him politically.

The biggest issue facing extremist on both the conservative and liberal side is the fact that they are unable to enjoy the many benefits that the United States has to offer. Unfortunately, extremist by there very nature are unhappy people that consider others that are happy as somehow out of touch with how bad this world and country really is. Rush Limbaugh has the ability to express his brand of extremism in an upbeat way which drives the other side completely crazy and causes them to try stupid moves like trying to silence a man that 20 millions people love to listen to each week.

The United States is a wonderful place to live, but some people will never be happy with our home unless they can change everyone into a miserable human being like themselves. Let's hope that Rush Limbaugh succeeds and these miserable extremist fail because while the United States isn't perfect, every citizen of this land should be thankful and proud to call this country, home.

Breaking CD Sales Records - Paul Potts

I was reading tonight about the tremendous success of Paul Potts' new CD named "One Chance" in the U.K. and there is no other way to describe sales of this new album except to use the world "unbelievable". While end of the week CD sales totals are not yet available, it appears that Paul Potts' new CD will set a weekly sales record in the U.K. and will most likely out sell all of the other nine CD's in the top ten, combined! How do you spell success? (Paul Potts)

I knew there was something special about this young man the first time I heard him sing on YouTube. His story and amazing voice caught my attention right away and now I have no doubt millions of other people worldwide were effected in the same way that I was. Paul Potts' is an everyday person, that was doing an everyday job and like Simon said, "he has an amazing voice" that is brightening the lives of millions of people around the world.

So far the Paul Potts' album (CD) sales totals are only in the U.K. since his CD has not been released around the world as of yet. I believe the tremendous success of Paul Potts' new CD, "One Chance" in the U.K. is just the first sign of how successful he will be worldwide once his album (CD) is released to an audience of billions of potential fans. Simon Cowell is not a stupid man and he does know talent and how to promote it when he finds it. However, I believe even Simon Cowell is going to be taken aback at how many CD's Paul Potts' sells in the next few months and for once maybe the "King of Mean" will find himself, speechless!

Paul Potts One Chance Number One

Only one day after it's first release, Paul Potts' new album (CD) called "One Chance" is already number one in the U.K. and most likely it will be number one in the U.S. too when it goes on sale at the end of July. It is easy these days to track the success of CD's long before they are actually released by checking the Amazon.com numbers of pre-orders that are placed. Right now, Paul Potts' is already at number 15 in the United States and there are still a couple of weeks left before any CD's are actually shipped by Amazon.

The Paul Potts' story has already touched the lives of millions of people around the world and by this time next month I predict, billions of people will know the name of Paul Potts. There is something extra special in Opera music and those that love that format are eager to find a young new talent that can bring back the great songs of the past and produce new songs in the future with a great voice that touches the heart. I think I have finally figured out what makes Paul Potts' so popular with millions of people around the world. When he sings, it is almost like he is singing just for that one person that is listening and not an audience of thousands that might be in the same place at the same time. This is a remarkable talent and one that could set album (CD) sales records around the world.

Late at night when everyone else has gone to sleep, sometimes I visit YouTube and listen to Paul Potts' sing and when he is finished singing I always feel better about my day. While Paul Potts' life might have been tough before, it is going to get even tougher when everyone on the Earth realized that this man's voice has the ability to brighten their day, he will be stalked from daylight till dark because of his ability to reach out and touch people around the world.

Small Contributions - Fred Thompson's - Biggest Strength

I wrote yesterday about how small contribution are helping Barack Obama move up in the Democratic race for President and I believe small contributions will make the difference for Fred Thompson as well. Washington D.C. "fat cats" are always ready to open there wallets to well know candidates that might help them once elected. However, lessor know candidates like Fred Thompson are not as likely to receive special interest money as someone like Hillary or Rudy.

In my opinion, the smaller the amount of the average contribution the better when it comes to running for President of the United States. Small contributions are gift of the heart that average voters give because they believe in the candidate and not because they hope to get some legislation passed someday because of the donation. When big named GOP candidates head to religious right strong holds looking for cash or when liberals head out to Hollywood in search of revenue, I always believe that money comes with some kind of strings attached somewhere down the road.

Fred Thompson was a household name long before he even gave a hint of possibly running for President of the United States and there could be millions of people opening up their wallets over the next few months to give small amounts of money to the Fred Thompson for President campaign. Just like with Barack Obama, Fred Thompson has a chance to tap into not only a large sum of money from millions of regular citizens, but also be pretty sure that they will also show up on election day to support him.

The 2008 race for president is only really getting started for the candidates that are supported by millions of grass-root voters around the country. While big named candidates are alway able to raise huge sums of money from wealthy contributors, there will be a few folks like Fred Thompson that will capture the attention of regular Americans and that loyalty will be critial when election day arrives in November of 2008.

More People Contributing To Barack Obama

When it comes to fund raising for there campaigns for President, both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton have both turned in big numbers so far this year. However, Barack Obama has a clear advantage in fund raising because hundreds of thousands of people contributed to his campaign instead of just a few "fat cats" that are picked on by leading candidates all the time. Why is it important to Barack Obama that his campaign dollars were raised by regular folks giving $50 to $100 instead of $2000 each? I believe people that give smaller contributions really care about a candidate and these same people are very likely to vote for that candidate on election day.

Even to right leaning moderates like myself, Barack Obama has a certain appeal that transcends his overly liberal stand on most major issues. Unlike most "beltway politicians", Barack Obama does seem to be his own man instead of someone beholding to either extreme ideology or special interest. When you add to those positive facts the fatigue most people are feeling about the Bush/Clinton dynasty of two decades, I think Barack Obama has a real chance to win the democratic nomination and the White House in 2008.

The American people have usually gone with a fresh young face and new ideas when given that choice in a package they can stomach. President Kennedy comes to mind when I think about a fresh face and new ideas. Some people say that Barack Obama does not have enough experience to be President of the United States, but with all the experts and advisor's that help president's these days; experience should take a back seat to judgment and intelligence when making decisions.

Most likely we will all know who the two major political party's will nominate for there candidates by the first part of next year. While Barack Obama is still a long shot for victory in the Democratic Party, I find myself pulling for this young man and hoping he will pull off a long shot victory.
