VA Hospitals aren’t Disneyland

Today, Veterans Affairs Secretary Robert McDonald uttered what may be the dumbest words said by someone in the federal government until the next time Vice President Joe Biden steps in front of a camera. At a breakfast hosted by the Christian Science Monitor, McDonald said: “When you got to Disney, do they measure the number […]

War on the 2nd Amendment

Posted · Add Comment

While guns sales have soared over the past two decades, violent crime has gone down. Not that most Americans know that, or are being told that by Democrats who reflexively talk about a “gun violence epidemic” that isn’t actually happening. This is their War on the 2nd Amendment. While much of the country has come […]

Political virtue-signaling

On Sunday, the San Luis Obispo Tribune published my latest column on the Democrats vying to replace retiring Rep. Lois Capps (D-Santa Barbara) this fall. In the proposed headline and text of the originally submitted column, I used the phrase “political virtue-signaling.” My use doesn’t quite match the urban dictionary definition, instead I would define it […]

In case you missed it, my weekend column in the San Luis Obispo Tribune is available here. The column focuses on many of the new anti-gun laws currently making their way through the California legislature and notes one thing they have in common: none of them would’ve stopped last year’s terrorist attack in San Bernardino. I […]

Video gaming sites noted that the legislator gained some notoriety […]

No longer conservative

The San Diego Union-Tribune has been a “conservative” newspaper for just about all of my life. That construction isn’t really accurate. The Union-Tribune editorial page has been conservative for all my life. The newsroom, like just about every American newsroom was overwhelmingly liberal. That run has ended. The paper is no longer conservative. When the Opinion Page […]

The 2016 presidential race has finally reached the point where I am hoping and praying for SMOD 2016 to win the election. For those of you unfamiliar with SMOD, it’s the Sweet Meteor of Death, a meteor of extinction level power that would spell the end of every life on earth. It’s the candidate we […]

America’s Dumbest Senator

California Sen. Barbara Boxer is retiring next year. It’s likely that whoever replaces her will take up her mantle as America’s Dumbest Senator, because that’s how we in California do it when voting for Democrats. Today, in a Capitol Hill press conference where Democrats touted their plans for solutions to Islamic jihadi radicals shooting up […]

Shooting in San Bernardino

There’s a suspected mass shooting in San Bernardino, Calif. We don’t know squat about what’s happened. That hasn’t stopped the usual suspects from jumping to their preferred narrative and lying. Case in point, radio talk show hack Alan Colmes. Planned Parenthood Clinic Across Street From San Bernardino Shooting https://t.co/riaxpbjE3j #p2 — Alan Colmes (@AlanColmes) December […]
