Meet the new boss

Geez, you'd think they were the National Reconaissance Center the way no one in the government or Congress wants to talk about the National Drug Intelligence Center -- Rep. John Murtha's pet agency. I thought all of this stuff was going to change once Democrats were in control. I am soooo disillusioned.

Analyzing the FairTax

Factcheck.org has a new analysis up of the so-called Fair Tax supported by the likes of talk show host Neal Boortz, GOP presidential hopefuls former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee and Reps. Duncan Hunter and Tom Tancredo. Let me preface this by saying that I'm not a big fan of the current tax system. What's really […]

Ponzi scheme

I've complained for years that Social Security is nothing more than a government run Ponzi scheme. It depends on a demographic model that no longer exists -- one that has a dozen or so workers for each retiree. When a private individual or company does this sort of thing, they go to jail. When the […]

Lacrosse weekend

Memorial Day weekend also happens to be college lacrosse final four weekend. I must say that aside from the Super Bowl, I probably look forward to the lacrosse final four more than any other sporting event. I must also confess I wasn't rooting for Duke. I've been a Johns Hopkins fan ever since I was […]

Getting a funny feeling

From Sen. Hillary Clinton's speech Tuesday: It's time for a new beginning, for an end to government of the few, by the few and for the few, time to reject the idea of an "on your own" society and to replace it with shared responsibility for shared prosperity. I prefer a "we're all in it […]

Some people call it summer

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi honored the sacrifice of American men and women who have given their last full measure of devotion by going to Greenland and Germany. Pelosi, a San Francisco Democrat unfamiliar with glaciers, has determined that global warming is real. The California Democrat pointed to her delegation's weekend stop in Greenland, "where we […]

Please don't read this story

I think I feel sorry for Carla Rivera and Andrew Blankstein. Blankstein and Rivera wrote this story in the Los Angeles Times last week. Why do I feel sorry for Blankstein and Rivera? Because it so ably demonstrates the talent they have in the stable there at the Times that they were able to take […]

I blame right-wing radio

Some cowardly jerks in Orcas Island, Wash., probably inspired by that hateful right-wing talk radio, torched flags decorating the graves of our nation's veterans and replaced them with hand-drawn swastikas.

Playing politics with Iraq

Today's Wall Street Journal features an editorial on last week's belated funding for the troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. I want to pick out two paragraphs to share. First, on the Democrats: Hamilton and Madison knew what they were doing when they gave the bulk of the war powers to the President, and it's hard […]

What does it take?

Let me start with a hypothetical. Let's say that immediately after the San Diego Union-Tribune article revealing that Rep. Randy "Dirty Duke" Cunningham had made several hundred thousand dollars by selling his home to a defense contractor above market value -- and that contractor subsequently sold the home at a big loss -- that the […]

It is now an inevitability that whatever the story, however complex its details, members of the American press will react by announcing who must be forbidden to speak going forward. https://www.nationalreview.com/2022/11/when-journalists-become-speech-police/

Rep.-elect John James (MI) and Rep.-elect Wesley Hunt (TX) are close friends and are first two Black graduates of West Point to enter Congress. They are even from the same class! Both Republicans. No surprise there have been almost zero national media profiles of either or both.
