Obama Adopts ‘The Office Doctrine’ For Dealing With Syria


My wife and I were big fans of NBC’s The Office. Back before Steve Carell left the show (it became unwatchable after that), we never missed an episode. Even these days, after we put our kids to bed at night and can’t find much on television, it’s not uncommon for us to turn to our…

What I Would Ask Martin Luther King


What would Martin Luther King think? What would Martin Luther King say? What would Martin Luther King do? Those are the kinds of questions we often hear tossed around by media personalities anytime our country recognizes an important anniversary pertaining to the iconic civil rights leader. It was 50 years ago this week when Dr….

Will the Benghazi Victims’ Families Play a Role in the 2016 Campaign?


It’s interesting to listen to all of the talk in the media right now about Hillary Clinton’s presidential aspirations. We’re more than three years out from the next time America gets to vote for a new commander-in-chief, and several experts are already insisting that Clinton’s  a shoe-in for the 2016 Democratic nomination. We’re being told…

A Break From the Media Hype of Chris Christie vs. Rand Paul


Anytime there’s any sort of infighting within the Republican Party, you can always count on the mainstream media to cover it laboriously. Their reason for doing so is easy to understand. As far as the media is concerned, practically any form of criticism against the Republicans is legitimate and justifiable. But when that criticism comes…

America Hasn’t Shifted Left. It’s Just Become More Adolescent


“I think that you should pay for your own mortgage, birth control, and college loans. I don’t think that because I’m Conservative, I think that because I’m an adult.” I saw that message posted somewhere on the Internet a couple of weeks ago. The phrasing really stuck with me because I believe it correctly captured…

Why SHOULDN’T Hillary Clinton Get Her Own Miniseries?


I’ve had enough of all of the sarcasm I’ve been hearing within conservative circles regarding the upcoming Hillary Clinton miniseries that will be airing on NBC. I don’t get it… Why is everyone so quick to assume that the project is being used as a shameless propaganda tool to promote Hillary’s 2016 presidential candidacy? Talk…

The Art of the Spit Take is Needed Now More Than Ever


I admit it. I’m jealous of my daughter. She’s only six years old and she has already mastered a talent that I’ve never been able to acquire. I’m talking about something I used to practice from time to time, well into my teenage years before finally accepting that some people’s bodies just aren’t designed to…

The Conspiracy Theorist’s Form of Blind Justice


It doesn’t surprise me that a lot people were disappointed by the acquittal of George Zimmerman – the Martin family in particular. They believed, as most parents would in the same situation, that the man who shot their 17 year-old child deserved to be held accountable in some meaningful way for the taking of their…
