I told you so

I hate to say I told you so, but I told you so. I told you Donald Trump couldn’t be trusted. I told you he was a showman. A salesman who sold only one product: himself. Even his most die-hard supporters are coming to the realization that maybe they were wrong about the longtime Democratic […]

DACA

DACA, the law, and doing the right thing

Posted · Add Comment

Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA as it is more popularly known, will be winding down in six months (maybe) and the media and the American left (but I repeat myself) are in full-blown meltdown mode. A brief history of DACA: After years of claiming (accurately) that the constitution prohibited him from making something […]

Pleading incompetence to avoid libel damages

Former Alaska Gov. and Republican vice-presidential nominee Sarah Palin is suing the New York Times for libel after it accused her in an editorial earlier this year of inspiring madman Jared Loughner to attack Arizona Democratic Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. I’m no fan of Sarah Palin, especially after she used what little Tea Party-related credibility she had when she […]

Trust no one

Donald Trump has been president of the United States for just over 5 months, and the mainstream media is still in perpetual outrage mode. One thing is clear: Don’t trust the initial reporting on anything. Yesterday the Washington Post published a story about a 2016 meeting between Republicans Kevin McCarthy, Paul Ryan and others where they confirmed […]

A nation of laws, not men

One of the items that guarantees our freedom is that we are a nation of laws, not men. In other words, the law is blind to your station in life. The law cares not whether you are wealthy and connected, or destitute and despised—justice is the same no matter what. At least, that’s the theory. […]

Yesterday I went on the Dave Congalton show on 920 KVEC to discuss Donald Trump’s First 100 Days in office. As is the usual, I always enjoy talking with Dave and often the callers give me good reason to laugh—sometimes in agreement and sometimes…well, you know. If you’re interested, you can listen to the show […]

President-elect Trump

Posted · 1 Comment

So, Donald Trump is president-elect. For the first time in about 20 years I spent election night on a date with my wife and enjoyed a movie (Doctor Strange—Very fun.) instead of glued to the TV and internet watching as returns rolled in. I entered last night knowing that no matter who won I wouldn’t […]

My weekend column and other thoughts

Posted · Add Comment

My weekend column for the local media outlet, the San Luis Obispo Tribune is available and it focuses on the contempt too many politicians—both left and right—have for our constitution. I think we’d have a much less divided and contentious nation if there was less government meddling in places where it has no constitutional sanction. The […]
