It’s Time for Conservatives to Suspend Rational Thought

plato

Beware, Plato and Aristotle; your legacies will soon be the objects of attack and ridicule by progressive politicians and their lapdog media. Logical thought is no longer in vogue. No doubt Plato and Aristotle were knuckle-dragging conservatives. “Low information voters” are the least of our problems; even if provided information, a growing majority of our…

An Open Letter to Republican Congressmen and Senators

Known to a dwindling number of us outside the Beltway and, hopefully you, our Constitution guides our Republic, and, for the most part, it has successfully held our country together since 1787. Some politicians and circumstances have led the country astray, but we’ve always managed to come ‘home’ to the wisdom and insight of the men who,…

America’s New ‘Operating System’…2 + 2 = 5

The hand-wringing continues. We’re approaching a month since the election, and old and new explanations for Romney’s loss fill the blogs and editorial columns. I won’t list them here, but they range from screwed up GOP ‘get out the vote’ software to deeply philosophical rationalizations…and all points in between. Conservatives continue to lament the loss, posing and…

The GOP…Heading Toward Disaster?

GOP-logo-upside-down

Astute analytical skills aren’t necessary to understand the GOP’s route to its next defeat in 2016. GOP spokespersons, analysts, experts, pundits, consultants…all much smarter than we mere mortals…are clearly marking the trail, an insightful new path through the wilderness of defeat to the glory days of yesteryear; you remember: Bush 41’s second campaign, Bob Dole, John McCain…

The Shock is Gone…!?

Like many of you, I’ve spent the last week digesting the results of the election. Similar to any emotional trauma, I’ve progressed from shock to utter disbelief to anger to frustration to fear…now, to a form of acceptance: the country is plagued with Obama and his policies for another four years. Tens of thousands of words have been written…

Final and Personal Pre-election Thoughts…

The last polling is almost done, the commentators are finishing their final commentaries and the analyzers are analyzing their last. What can be said that hasn’t been already said? After months of attempting to logically assess the choice the country makes on Tuesday, I now find myself in an introspective mood…more ‘feeling’ than ‘thoughtful.’ And, emotional memories…

The Precious ‘Undecideds’…They’re Getting Real Tiresome

undecided-voters

My puzzlement with undecideds first evolved to irritation, then to frustration. Now, finally, I’ve had enough of them and their falsifications, wishy-washiness, ignorance and pseudo intellectualism. Just who are these undecideds? First, there are the fakers, the devious liars who, for whatever reasons, simply lie about their political loyalties. Not much analysis required here. Dishonest people do…

Presidential Debate Ambushes…Will the GOP Ever Learn?

Well, we’ve had two presidential debates and a vice-presidential debate, and two of the three once again resulted in demonstrable attempts by the moderators to overtly impact the outcomes. Whoever thought conservatives would become fans of Jim Lehrer? First, we had Martha Raddick’s performance, tolerating and encouraging Joe Biden’s manic behavior…and, her propensity to badger Ryan for…
