Tragedy in South Carolina

Posted · Add Comment

A mentally deranged young man (who will receive no notoriety by having his name mentioned here) went into Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church Wednesday night and shot an killed 9 people. This prompted the usual calls from the usual callers for more “common sense” gun regulations. I do not know how much longer we can […]

You didn’t build that

Coming from the party of you didn’t build that and you didn’t earn that and tax cuts are giving money back to people (rather than taking less of something that was never the government’s in the first place, comes this bit of genius. Another accomplishment — Obama first President to have a Triple Crown winner […]

Stupid Facebook Posts

I rarely post to my personal Facebook page. I’ll do it when traveling, or attending a concert or something similar, but I’m not a regular Facebook user. I look at Facebook to see what’s up with friends and family—travel, reading, concerts, kids, etc.—not politics. Some people—mainly former colleagues at newspapers—post political stuff. I have a […]

Democrats with Bylines

The New York Times has one of the most talked-about stories on the Web this morning revealing that GOP presidential candidate Marco Rubio and his wife have had 17 traffic tickets over the years. The presidential candidate, it is revealed in the 3rd paragraph, has had 4 tickets since 1997. His wife, in a serious blow […]

2nd Amendment Logic

Posted · Add Comment

I always find it interesting to take some of the “logic” applied by gun-control advocates with regard to the 2nd Amendment and apply it to the First Amendment. This 2nd Amendment logic usually quickly devolves into something indistinguishable from a reductio ad absurdum. In California, the Calguns Foundation filed suit against California’s 10-day waiting period before ownership […]

The New York Times’ house Republican David Brooks, a man of such strength of belief that he is swayed only by pants creases, made an interesting observation on last Friday’s PBS Newshour program. And I have my disagreements, say, with President Obama, but President Obama has run an amazingly scandal-free administration, not only he himself, but […]

Will Democrats Really Nominate Hillary?

Posted · Add Comment

Today two big pieces of news came out that makes you wonder if the Democratic Party is really going to nominate someone with the baggage Bill and Hillary Clinton would bring with them to the White House. First, International Business Times found that everything Democrats were sure Dick Cheney was doing with Halliburton during Bush 43’s […]

The War Against ISIS

In this age of social media, the Obama Administration has made a much of their public relations efforts against various evils around the world. First Lady Michelle Obama famously held up a piece of paper with the #BringBackOurGirls hashtag after the Islamic terrorists of Boko Haram kidnapped more than 200 girls for use as sex […]

Vox says Obamacare sucks

Of course, they didn’t spin it this way but this piece by Sarah “Local Crime Story” Kliff highlights the facts that most Americans know about Obamacare ever since the the health care system was turned into something akin to a government utility. Interestingly, Vox claims that there have been some healthcare savings, but that it’s […]

Hillary Clinton and Sid Vicious

Posted · Add Comment

On Monday, after 40,150 minutes, Hillary Clinton finally deigned to answer some questions from the court scribes. The former Secretary of State laughably claimed that she wanted all of the emails from her private email account on her private server that she decided she wanted the public to see should be “out there” as soon […]
