Rich White Trash

Rich White Trash

I thought the category had reached its zenith with Paris Hilton and the Kardashians, but I was wrong. At the moment, the Crown of Crude must surely go to the Family Couch. At the moment, Killer Kid is dying his hair in Puerto Vallarta, Mumsie is winging her way back to California, hopefully at her own expense, and Papa Bear is god knows where.

It would be difficult to imagine a worse case of disciplinary failure. Deciding that the steroidal…

Obama and Bergdahl--Duo of Dopes

Obama and Bergdahl—Duo of Dopes

What could be dimmer than Bo Bergdahl’s Jason Bourne-motivated desertion from his U.S. troops to find favor among the enemies he was sworn to combat?

Answer: Barack Obama

BB apparently became less than thrilled with his mission. He’d heard a lot about American imperialism and why the savages he was sworn to fight were uncomfortable with his country. Besides, the fight was heating up; he might even be scuffed up a bit in it.…

Charles Dickens--an early environmentalist

When I’m not writing books, ragging on collectivists, or lying on the beach, I do an occasional gig on the radio. Tomorrow, at 12:30 pm, Eastern, I’ll be doing my traditional Christmas show on WTAN 1340 impersonating Charles Dickens discussing A Christmas Carol. It’s sort of fun, if you humor bar is not set too high. Just click and the sound comes right on.

I follow IMUS in the Morning and a couple of other…

Sanders as Independent

Sanders as Independent

The time has come for Bernie Sanders to announce his run for president in 2016 as an independent, rather than as a Democrat candidate.

The reasons are many:

  • He’s registered as an Independent, not as a Democrat
  • As an independent, he can challenge the lies, hypocrisy, and incompetence of Hillary Clinton with undiluted vigor
  • Ditto his attack on the Republican candidate
  • He can rid himself of the harridan…

Republicans: Stop the Madness

Republicans: Stop the Madness!

Months ago, I pleaded with Republican candidates for president in 2016 not to repeat the past mistake of eating their own in the interest of ego at the expense of launching a unified defense against the greatest threat to the American way of life and national security represented by the corrupt candidacy of Hillary Clinton.

At that time, I suggested that the candidates cede to someone like Newt Gingrich the power to decide when…

Weekend Trivia

Weekend Trivia

Two events have been garnering a fair amount of e-ink in the weekend media.

The first is the release of the latest in the never-ending Star Wars film series. When I saw the original many years ago, it struck me as a joinder of video-game technology with a very aggressive visit to Brooks Costuming. Fulfilling his contractual promotional obligations, Harrison Ford squirmed in his interview seat trying his best to make something out of nothing. The…

Trump v. Clinton v SCOTUS

Trump v. Clinton v. SCOTUS

All are very much in the news these days:

Hillary is promising to dole out non-existing dollars to buy votes and calm the natives.

Trump is risking epic backlash from Muslims, including that famous boxer who has long outlived his ability to say anything coherent, let alone “powerful.”

SCOTUS is leaning towards delivering a death blow to affirmative action.

What do these events have to do with each…

Time Magazine's Person of the Year 2015

Time Magazine Announces Its 1915 Person of the Year Award

Although the fortunes and reputation of Time Magazine have been falling faster than Obama’s sprint to the nearest golf tee, its annual candidates and eventual choice for the magazine’s person of the year award provide some fodder for light-hearted conversation at cocktail parties. This year is certainly no exception.

The two that struck me as most bizarre was the former Olympic athlete and now very much…

Guns

Guns

Three things are certain in life: death, taxes, and liberal knee jerk Pavlovian responses to any shoot-em-up with pleas for stricter government controls on guns.

The emphasis has a rational basis. Outside of the military and the police (two of three legitimate functions of government), guns are the instruments of cowards. They are uniquely efficient and allow ninnies to kill and maim great numbers without getting their hands dirty. Guns deserve our most…

Loony Lynch

When the nation got rid of Eric Holder, it breathed a sigh of relief. The lackey that slavishly did Obama’s every morbid bidding was gone, and at the start, it seemed like his replacement, Loretta Lynch, might bring to her high office some appreciation of what a U.S. Attorney General is supposed to do.

Those hopes were extinguished over the weekend when LL addressed a pro-Muslim group. With a degree of irony worthy of the gods, LL assured the Muslim community that her office would…

Jail Hill

Jail Hill

For some time, I have harbored the belief/hope that the people of the United States would be sufficiently informed/horrified by recent developments at home and abroad, even as soft-focused by the media, to understand that the country is simply not in hands that are effective, ethical, or rationally orientated. Obama’s dismal record as CinC, which makes Hillary Clinton’s tenure as SofS seem absolutely stellar by comparison, I thought, would speak for itself.

But…

Coddled Columbians

Wish I'd written it. At least it explains why, as an alumni, I've never contributed a dime to its coffers.
