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 […]

I’ve been less interested in media bias this election cycle mostly because #NeverTrump. I don’t want readers to be mistaken that my criticism as to how his orangeness is treated by the media is a defense of the cheeto jesus. But this is getting ridiculous. The most interesting, and substantive, bit of news out of the […]

Ten days ago, a madman opened fire on cops at a Black Lives Matter protest in downtown Dallas. Five officers were killed and nine […]

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 […]

This is hilarious. In the spirit of the Downfall parody videos, we bring you Klintondämmerung! It’s been a bad week for Hillary Clinton, and it’s just going to get worse.

Chuck Schumer is right on the Iran Deal

As a general rule, it’s hard to go wrong taking the opposite position of New York Sen. Chuck Schumer on just about any subject of public import. Gun-control, healthcare, government spending, whatever, find out which side Schumer is on and choose the other. Which brings us to eight words I never thought I’d say or […]

Clinton, Rubio and the media

Posted · Add Comment

For his first few years at The New York Times, columnist Paul Krugman was my punching bag. His dishonest, hack columns were perfect material for easy rabbit punches that had a devastating effect. My takedowns of his dishonest columns received widespread notice in a variety of national publications and in conservative Washington circles. Then the Times […]

As things look now, it appears that President Barack Obama’s Libyan escapade will turn out to be an unmitigated disaster. The most troubling bit of news was that we have apparently banked on the Libyan opposition’s ground forces to remove strongman Moammar Qadaffi from power with the help of allied air support. Then CNN let […]
