Let's Look at the "Legacy"

Let’s Look at the “Legacy”



No one was more proud and excited than I when the United States elected its first black (or at least half black) president. A significant step forward in the march toward racial indifference so beautifully articulated by Martin Luther King, Jr. in his iconic “I Have a Dream” speech on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial.



Now, eight years later, Obama is touting the…

America's Last Clear Chance

America’s Last Clear Chance

In many years gone by, a hero arose in the political scene named Barry Goldwater. He was the author of a remarkable précis of Ayn Rand’s prescient works named Conscience of a Conservative. Its clarion message was lost on the electorate, and Goldwater went down in flames.

Since then, the American political scene has been infected by a remarkable succession of opportunists, egotists, and/or liars that have brought this noble country to the very edge of…

Mark Cuban in Turmoil

The Very Conflicted and Confused Mark Cuban

A few years ago, Mark Cuban went on TV to say that the book he was most grateful for as a guiding light was Ayn Rand’s The Fountainhead. So far, so good. Generations have been inspired by Rand’s works.

Now MC is introducing Hillary Clinton with grins and hugs. As Her Thighness is today’s most visible champion of collectivism, we must conclude that Cuban can’t read, can’t think, or, more likely, is willing to…

The Lame Is Leading the Lame

The Lame Is Leading the Lame

“The blind are leading the blind” -- Blanche du Bois to sister Stella Kowalski in Tennessee Williams’ masterpiece, A Streetcar Named Desire.

During the last few days, in an unprecedented move, Barack Obama has fled the chill of D.C. golf courses and has thrown himself headlong into campaign appearances on behalf of Hillary Clinton, who clearly needs all the help she can get.

So lame duck Obama is propping up lame…

FBI to the Rescue

 FBI Director James Comey believes in redemption. His July decision not to recommend to the DOJ indictment of Hillary Clinton despite overwhelming evidence of her handling confidential material with great carelessness (the equivalent of the statutory “gross negligence” standard) was not sitting well with the hard-working investigators of the FBI and, more importantly, was not sitting well with Comey himself. When those investigators turned up some new emails born of the Agency’s…

Clinton Runs Wild

The latest list of Clinton incredibles

Veterans are being subject to the claw back of sign-on bonuses. Disgraceful, and the Obama/Clinton nexus has yet to be heard from.

Emails which were destroyed by Clinton on the ground that they were purely personal turn out to be between Clinton and David Petraeus. Who knew that the good general was so experienced in yoga and wedding planning? These social subjects were also purported to be what was discussed between Mr.…

Third Presidential Debate

Observations on the Third Presidential Debate

Clinton, as usual, showed evidence of strong preparation, but not absorption. She referred to her notes more or less constantly, whereas Trump rarely glanced at his. Clinton was like an actor who is struggling with characterization and is not yet off-book. For this to be the case given the length and intensity of her rehearsal period is disquieting at best. Clinton doesn’t seem to possess the strong memory that is an…

Quid Pro Quo

Quid Pro Quo

It has been said, wisely I think, that if anything positive can result from the Obama-induced chaos in the Middle East, it is that U.S. students will become more geographically aware.

Now comes the very intimidating Latin expression “Quid Pro Quo.”

Quid Pro Quo means the agreed-upon exchange of values between or among competent parties. It is one of the essential ingredients of a contract, which is the foundation of commerce in a free economy.

Recently,…

Wake Up!

Wake Up!

Women:              HRC has done nothing but trash those that stood in the way of her psychotic pursuit of the presidency. Do you really want to be in the “stand by your man” enclosure?

African-Americans:         Hillary and Barack have done nothing but increase violence in your neighborhoods and your dependence on hand-outs, which are in dwindling supply (although they’ll never tell you that).

Veterans:            Lots of luck. Only Trump has…

HRC and the Supreme Court

Critical Senate Results

In the tragically unfortunate event that HRC wins the presidency, the most tragically unfortunate consequence will be that she will be in a position to nominate successors to retiring or deceased members of the U.S. Supreme Court. One vacancy exists presently; others, including the obviously demented Ruth Bader Ginsberg, who can’t seem to get her shit together on the behavior of football players, are imminent.

The good news is that even as president, HRC…

DJT v. SNL

Why does Donald Trump continue to do such stupid things? Especially when the latest polls indicate that his campaign is staging a bit of a comeback?

The SNL take on the second debate was hilarious and was fair and balanced, lampooning HRC as much as DJT.

One of the qualities that fills Trump's halls and endears him to voters is his sense of humor. Yet, he bashes the show in a tweet and singles out Baldwin for special criticism.

Is Trump unaware of how many people watch…

Obama's Problems with Punctuation</

p>

In order to get his signature legacy legislation pulled over the eyes of the public, Obama stated, more or less, "If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor, period. If you like your health plan, you can keep your health plan, period."

Permit me to correct Professor (sic) Obama's articulated punctuation. Instead of a period, he should have used either a comma followed by a coordinating conjunction or a semi-colon followed by a conjunct…

Could We Possibly Grow Up About Sex?

The Prohibitive Price of Puritanism

If the United States ends up electing as its new president one of the most flawed, corrupt, and incompetent politicians that has ever sought office, it will be because of sex. And how tragically foolish is that!

Europeans have long mocked Americans for their sexual provincialism. But never has its consequence been more dire than for it to prove to be the tipping point to the election of Hillary Clinton, a tired and untrue hack who has been…

Trump as Last Chance

False Moralism Alive and Well in the US

Bill Clinton, generally regarded as one of the most popular political figures around these days, defiled the Oval Office during his tenure there by depositing his well-spread seed on the dress of one who didn’t understand that the dove may be an expression of love, but the swallow is a much greater one.

At the moment, AOL achieves huge attention by spreading stories about Kim Kardashian’s bare butt.

Europeans have…

Clinton, Cosby, and Trump

Clinton, Cosby, and Trump

Common threads:

Use of Power

Sexual Intimidation

Forceful Rape

The best evidence to date is that Clinton and Cosby used all three; Trump only the first two.

Could we at least admit the fact that most men are horny and will use all tools at their disposal to achieve their sexual goals?

Could we also agree that most men know when to draw the line between coaxing and coercion?

If we…

Clinton's September Song

Clinton’s September Song

“And the days dwindle down to a precious few…”

Dwindling almost as rapidly as Americans who are acceptable in Her Thighness’s sight.

First we got rid of half of Trump’s supporters.

The latest additions to the unwashed are the bottom feeders who, appropriately enough, live in their parents’ basements. But, having dismissed them as pathetic dreamers, Hillary is now celebrating them, having discovered, that, Holy Cow!, they can…

Craven Clinton

Clinton at Her Most Craven

Seems like only yesterday that Hillary was chastising Bernie Sanders for proposing free tuition and college debt relief as egregious examples of fiscal irresponsibility. Yet, yesterday, at a Vermont college, she sat beaming and nodding her approval at exactly the same proposals put forth by exactly the same man.

What changed? What else! A precipitous drop in Clinton’s support with college millennials. Votes that were slipping through the net had to be…

Hofstra 2016

Puffing and Huffing at Hofstra

This will not be adding yet another partisan re-hash of last night’s fish fry on Long Island.

The event was a natural consequence of the candidates’ very different approach to debate preparation.

Clinton closeted herself with skilled cosmeticians (both literal and figurative) and liberal academics who refreshed their charge’s ability to regurgitate the political pap that has sustained her and hers for the last 30 years. The…

Downhill Hill

The past few days have underscored the fact that on the issues of due process and racism, Barack and Hillary are hopelessly mired in hypocrisy.

Hillary

In a quasi-comatose drool aboard her plane, Hillary said that neither she nor any other thoughtful person should make any judgment about the NY-NJ bombings until all the “facts” are known. She then retreated to her berth.

A few days later, a revived Hillary makes a hysterical phone call to the Harvey radio show demanding…
