Sheldon Silver Didn’t Earn Enough Not To Be Tempted
Middle class politicians who get mediocre salaries are the most susceptible to bribes. Guys like Sheldon Silver who meet with millionaires become jealous of their business contacts and want to be rich like them. He earned $121,000 a year as Speaker of the House. Not much in his circles.
The rich politicians who have other legal business interests are not the threat. It’s the…Continue
One way to defeat this out of control president is to immediately stop all investigations into past administration scandals (which have been forgotten anyway) and focus everyone’s attention on current affairs. The Republicans should hold an immediate press conference stating that all prior investigations into past Obama administration wrongdoings will be put on hold while all Republican investigative offices/agencies focus their attention on current affairs and the most recent…Continue
(If you dis this letter as the same old arguments, please at least read the last two paragraphs, very carefully).
We are in perilous times. We have a self-professed Muslim in the white house pretending to represent all U.S. citizens. This could not be further from the truth.
We have a newly elected Republican majority in the house and senate pretending to represent all U.S. citizens. This also, could not be further from the truth.
Our Constitution is being…Continue
Forty years ago when my Aunt Nee was the pastor of the Holy Temple Church of Truth, an east Baltimore storefront, during testimony service Sister Davis or Sister Cleary would spontaneously lead the tiny congregation in singing, “We're Livin' In the Last Days.” “They're calling wrong right. They're calling right wrong. Surely, we're livin' in the last days!”
As I listened to…Continue
Ronald Reagan said: “This country was founded and built by people with great dreams and the courage to take great risks.”
People throughout time have risked their lives for the great cause of America. And it's about time we start protecting what makes…Continue
Obama condemned the decapitation by Isis of the Japanese man, Haruna Yukawa. He promised that Washington and its allies would bring the killers to justice.
Is he kidding? What is justice to an innocent man whose head has been cut off because of Obama’s failed foreign policy? Does Obama think that Haruna’s head will become reattached to his body by the miracle of justice? Does he think that…Continue
The literacy of the imagination of Jonathan Swift, in his writings of ‘Gulliver’s Travels,’ as a parody of reality, versus imagination, can’t even begin to touch the ‘parallel universe’ of unimaginable fallacy, and fantasy of this nation today.
In this imaginary…Continue
THE MAJOR SNOWSTORM THAT HIT A MINOR CHORD
Mayor Bill de Blasio was getting a lot of face time on television on 1-26-2015 talking about his preparation for the snowstorm.
There’s nothing less controversial than a snowstorm. It’s not as ornery as the shooting deaths of two cops or race relations.
De Blasio and Cuomo cancelled the subways, buses, streets and bridge traffic after…Continue

The movie American Sniper has hit a nerve with the loony Left. They just can’t stand any kind of anything that asserts that there are enemies, there is evil, and that there has to be an imperative to destroy that evil. Oh, and they deplore anything that puts America in a morally right light—not that they accept an absolute morality because they opt instead for a moral relativism that is, let’s face it, no morality at all. The fact that American…Continue
The enemy is not just “terrorism”, some generic evil that has spontaneously produced a “phenomenon of violent extremism“. The threat is much more specific than this and it exists irrespective of what Obama believes; yet the President of the United States continues to deny reality with the most recent example coming from comments he made Tuesday night…Continue
