Do you recall the famous speech delivered on 8 December, 1941, in which Franklin Roosevelt stood before a joint session of Congress and declared that we needed to lend a sympathetic ear of understanding to the Japanese People, who had legitimate grievances against the American People, since we had tried to land on their island as uninvited potential trade partners some 3…Continue
At it's founding as a free nation in 1966, Botswana started out as the third poorest nation on Earth. Her per capita income was $70 per year. She was the very definition of third world impoverishment, that sickeningly sad example of people waiting to be exploited by Sally Struthers and every other huckster wishing to extract donations from the well fed and not too bright. (I'd like to note here that I'm not anti charity, but anti pretend charity. Most of those…Continue
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution,
nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to
the States respectively, or to the people.
With the focus clearly on Washington in Barack Obama's latest example of trying in earnest to render our founding document obsolete, many of our number forgot entirely that 26 of our several states took it upon themselves to put an end to the President's clearly…Continue
A couple of days ago, I wrote a post which highlighted the dangers of forcing law enforcement authorities to misappropriate resources by investigating fallacious reports alleging criminal activity. Unfortunately, the Liberal practice of deflecting attention from real problems and towards make believe problems does not end at the borders of law enforcement. It continues into just about every other aspect of our societal existence. The most dangerous of those places of…Continue
As far as those self aggrandizing Hollywierd award parties go, I usually hold them in the same esteem as the Super Bowl Half Time silliness. Which pretty much means it is usually time I reserve for licking stamps, cleaning hair out of my comb, or perhaps the all important task of organizing my dog's linkedin contact list. I really couldn't care less about what our show people think of themselves. What they think of me, someone whom they've never, met matters even less.
Yet for some…Continue
I'm not sure when moral equivalency became an accepted debate tactic, but I can state unequivocally, I don't respect the arguments when made, and those who make them lose a lot of my respect as well. It is nothing short of intellectual dishonesty, and worse yet, moral cowardice. At a National Prayer Breakfast earlier this week, our President, Barack Hussein Obama, told us that we shouldn't consider the ISIS execution of a Jordanian POW to be evil, because Christians were…Continue
On June 23, 2015, I published this blog post endorsing Scott Walker for President. He's got what we, meaning every right of center citizen living throughout the Fruited Plains, is looking for politically speaking. He's a proven warrior, has won tough elections, never backed down from his principles or beliefs, and has true conservative bona fides.
He's taken on the special…Continue
We get it all in this 57 second clip. Moronic sophistry, far reaching moral equivalency that would shame Johnny Cochran, a healthy dose of blame the victims, and all of it presented in a seemingly serious manner, as if hours of thought and debate provided us with this hard hitting gem of liberal moon battery.
Catch that? Go ahead and watch it again. Notice how Alex Wagner…Continue
As a young lad attending The Ohio State University, I had the eye opening experience of being an ancillary subject in about half a dozen articles which appeared in our student newspaper, "The Lantern." I learned some lessons in 1984 which I've carried with me throughout my life. One, journalists make up the single laziest profession outside of psychics. Two, their stories, conclusions, overarching themes, and any statements related to them, have all been decided upon far in advance of any…Continue
Last night's speech, made by our petulant man child President marked a turning point in history. It has the potential to be the completion of that fundamental transformation of America promised by Barack Obama. In the blink of an eye, we went from being the most powerful nation on Earth, the last remaining super power, the greatest creator of wealth ever seen in human history, to a nation on the precipice of existing solely as a third world banana republic. The reason I say…Continue
I'm still working on the book, but I swear that it's almost finished.
I'm sure we've all seen the video by now, that one in which the
paid Obama lackey, impartial, unimpeachable, MIT Economics Don, Jonathan Gruber, put truth to the suspicion and oft stated fact those of us on the right have been saying about the Leftist politicos and pundits for years. In case you haven't, have a palate cleansing experience on me.…
First things first here. Let's enjoy two and a half minutes of celebration.
Those who consist of the more brilliant intellectually elite class, the ones who've been traveling the cosmos predicting that the last decade represents the beginning of the end of the Republican Party are officially imbeciles now. Unfortunately, our system, thanks to some crooked politicking by…Continue
This one is so laughably fallacious that the charge hardly seems worth so much effort. Reality can be a cruel mistress however, as there is something far more mendacious under the surface of this charge. It is that something, that has me far more worried than the laughably false claim itself.
Let's look at the Apartheid State claim, with respect to Israel itself. There is only one Democracy in the entirety of the Middle East. There is only one nation in the entire…Continue
I'm still working on that book of mine, so things will still be short this week. I'm making some good progress, I promise. As you may have guessed from the above title, the above graphic is not something with which I agree. In fact, seeing it last week caused coffee to shoot through my nose, necessitating the usage of a baby wipe to clean my capitalism produced relatively inexpensive flat screen monitor, which years ago replaced the television looking thing.
We've had a few more sightings of Democrats who will do and say anything in an effort to attain electoral success during this midterm season. By doing and saying anything of course, I mean tell any lie and jettison completely their core beliefs in an all out effort to hoodwink voters who may or may not be paying full attention to the political world around them.
The message of course is that you can have fiscal and economic sanity, while still not pulling the lever for the knuckle…Continue
I'm still working on the book this week, so anything I do post will once again be short and sweet. I was all set to deliver the usual hour long video of smart people speaking to smart subjects, when this little gem crossed my bad news feed known as facebook. Go ahead and give it a read, and then we can have a very brief discussion about it later.
The European Space…
So, what's the first thing a Muslim former employee at a food distribution plant does when his co-workers rebuff his efforts to convert them to Islam, wishing to show the virtues and grace his religion offers? (His efforts and persistence to convert his fellow workers was in fact so annoying and offensive to those with whom he worked, that it became a factor in his loss of employment.)
The answer of course,…Continue
First, don't allow your hopes for an apolitical Attorney General to carry you away to a place where Unicorns roam the streets of your little town. Who ever fills that post for the remaining couple of years of our national nightmare will still have been appointed by Barack Obama, and my guess is that he'll find someone who is as nearly a perfect Xerox copy of the original as the DNA might allow. Competence will not be the major consideration, politics will.
Over this past weekend, Environmental activists met in New York City for a couple of days of organized mayhem. The above picture is a small sample of what gifts they bestowed upon the ecology of Manhattan. The clean up will doubtless cost the productive citizens of New York a veritable fortune. So much for leading by example, a relatively soft ball question asked of RFK Jr. and Leonardo DiCaprio which was summarily swung at and missed by both. RFK whiffed for his…Continue
I've been wavering back and forth on whether the GOP's support for giving the President what he's asked for in terms of his AUMF to manage that JV team, now known as ISIS, is the right or wrong thing to do. In the end, and I know this will anger half of you out there, I'm going to say that John Boehner, as much as I don't like admitting that he got something right, got this one right. It's not a simple question, and it did take me a while to arrive here, but in the end,…Continue
