There has been much said, written, and opined, about the goings on in Nevada over the past week. Legal experts, who strangely enough skipped law school, have pontificated on the right and wrong of a situation that really is hard to fathom in today's every-thing-is-fine-America. Does the Bundy Family have the right to keep using Federal Land, essentially claiming squatter's rights, for their cattle to graze upon? Does the Federal Government have the right to confiscate the…Continue
It has always been a source of great amusement for me, that our debates in this nation over the Constitution have tended to center around the concept of what the Founding Fathers meant when they put it all together. After all, they did not frame this document in a vacuum. They debated it vociferously, recorded their debate, argued with one another via written letters, and even took the measure to defend their work and explain it all, in great detail by the way, in a…Continue
Have you noticed recently that every single initiative and statement mad by the environmental movement has an underlying theme that remains constant, no matter what the complained about crime against Mother Earth? These stories or proclamations always go something like this, "the upcoming environmental disaster is a threat to all life on the planet, and the only way to put a stop to that threat, thereby saving humanity and all living creatures is to adopt Marxism as a…Continue
In honor of Passover starting this evening, with Tuesday being the first full day, I thought I'd go in a slightly different direction. A completely non religious discussion inspired by a religious event or celebration. Passover, for my non-Jewish friends is at its core, a celebration of freedom. More specifically, it means to those of us who are Jewish, our deliverance from bondage, (enslavement,) by God, and as a consequence of that deliverance, the agreement that we would live our lives…Continue
Following the context of Barack Obama's Millionth promise to get to the bottom of something, which for our purposes will be represented by the IRS targeting scandal, an activity that earned Richard Nixon a quarter of his ticket out of Washington D.C. via the torch and pitch fork express, we learned that his investigative skills are every bit as sharp as the rest of his freakishly thin resume. That is to say, it's exactly what one might expect from a man who'd never so much…Continue
This one should be clear. My problem with the above cartoon is not so much that it isn't funny. My problem is that it's most definitely a true representation of the view held by our President and his Attorney General. My problem is that it's in no way an exaggeration. It is an accurate description of the state of things today in regards to our Executive Branch in general, and with our Department of Justice in particular. Any notice of this state of affairs brings choruses…Continue
Last week we were treated to that special form of Presidential Kabuki Theater that stands out as the one thing that this White House and its little man child President seems adept at. Was there ever any doubt in anybody's mind that 7 Million Obamacare Enrollees would be the number magically reached? Somehow, as if by divine providence, and after only a cool $684 Million of your taxes allocated on the single most obnoxious advertising campaign ever inflicted upon the public…Continue
Just as a recap, here's who Kurt Lewin was. His expertise was in how to control entire populations, both in thought and in deed. The Political Left has been using his techniques for decades now, and most recently, it caused the resignation of Brendan Eich, the former CEO and founder of Mozilla Firefox. I don't want you to feel too sorry for Eich, he'll be fine on a personal level, as his accomplishments…Continue
Apparently, the answer comes in at a 4500 years at least. I haven't seen the highly touted, "Noah," but I have read some reviews. From what I've read about the movie, I believe I'll hold onto my half sawbuck, and wait for it to appear every other day on one of my movie blitzing cable channels. Word has it that the great flood referred to in the Book of Genesis, Bereishis for those of you who prefer the Hebrew pronunciation to the English, was the result of God, or Hashem if…Continue
In September of 2013, one month before the $635 Million online shopping cart failed in spectacular fashion, (bear in mind that every industry expert questioned on this subject agreed that the entire web site should have been built to work flawlessly for a paltry $2 Million to $5 Million,) HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius was asked what number of enrollees would be considered successful. Watch her answer below, and then we'll talk about it.…Continue
I usually stay out of debates centered around the topic of abortion, (or its more politically correct term, women's individual reproductive choices,) but something happened recently that made me give it another thought. Before we get there however, I'd like to disclose a couple of things to you. I am Jewish, and while our religion shares some strong similarities with Christianity, and we are very close on many beliefs, we are also worlds apart in other respects. We do not proselytize.…Continue
Here's an idea I got after reading some comments on my last post. Let's play a little game. Since the manufactured crisis of Global Warming has now officially been debunked by The American Physical Society, the world's largest and most prestigious professional association of…Continue
That was the sound of of something momentous happening. That was the sound of the American Physical Society taking up the cause of Man Mad Global Warming Theory, and asking some tough questions in the process. Those tough questions include, but are not limited to such things as, why have the computer models failed to get one single prediction correct in…Continue
This is a two hour lecture delivered by James Randi, representing his Jref Foundation, from Princeton University in 2001. Randi is a professional magician who has dedicated his retirement from show business to exposing frauds, tricksters, faith healers, psychics, mentalists, and other confidence schemers. He's exposed Peter Popoff, Uri Geller, Sylvia Browne, Jon Edwards, and dozens of others. In this lecture, he'll show us all personally how we ourselves can become easy prey for the hustlers…Continue
So I found this one originally when I traveled to Investor's Business Daily. All I could think in the immediate aftermath was this. Exactly how far into the crapper does the current Administration wish to sink the once proud agency? The answer must be pretty God Damned far, since institutionalized madness seems to be the rule there, and not the exception.
As you ponder the initial question posited with the headline, bear in mind please that the Fed was established on Dec. 23, 1913 for one purpose, and one purpose only. It was established expressly to put an end to bank failures in this nation. All other duties that the Federal Reserve Bank now takes on are duties that it has awarded itself, with the exception of one. We'll get to that one after the video. I would also like you to bear in mind that with its primary charge,…Continue
So yesterday, I got this as a response to my essay.
Yes, the health care system we had before ACA was better than we have now, but it like every other arm and branch of the free enterprise system was and is full of greed and graft. It like all of our branches of business have become breeding grounds for corruption graft and power. We may not need a 3rd party but we sure do need a 3rd mind set where we will support a 3rd candidate who we can trust to do the will of the…
So, the Republicans, under the sturdy, (sarcasm intended,) leadership of John Boehner, have come up with a replacement for the disastrous Affordable Care Act, which henceforth should be referred to as either Obamacare or Democrats-shoved-this-monstrous-destructive-piece-of-crap-down-our-throats-care. (The latter is now appropriate due to the…Continue
Is there a better interviewer alive today? My personal opinion is a resounding no. Robinson comes to the game armed with statements made and actions taken by the interviewee, along with quotations and statements made by others that he finds pertinent to the topics being discussed. He leads the conversation, and yet allows the interviewee ample room, time, and reflection to complete a substantive discussion.
Mike Lee is a worthy interview as well. A Tea Party favorite, he understands…Continue
First things first, cue the Mancini Music. Enjoy the well earned and not often enough heard Baby Elephant Walk. )
Now that that's out of the way, on to the analysis.
