Nuts at the Round Table

As you alert citizens are no doubt aware, it has been an unusually busy week in Washington, Dysfunction Central. I mean, it’s really kickin’ over there. The bustling-ness has gotten to the point where most members of the Legislative Branch found themselves on the verge of breaking a sweat, forcing their aides to hurriedly crank…

Think You’re Safe, Do Ya?

Hey there, all you conscientious and not-entirely-irresponsible citizens! Welcome to the first Never Again-ual Safe Thinking Education Exam (NASTEE). This test is open-book (it doesn’t matter which book—open up Tortilla Flat for all I care), and multiple choice. Please use a #2 pencil, and clean your monitor screen after you finish. 1)      Your daughter’s kitten got stuck in…

If God Exists, then What the Hell is going on?

AARON-ALEXIS-Poster

My own, modest opinion is that there is not enough evidence available, pro or con, to determine whether there is a God – at least in the biblical sense. And there probably never will be enough evidence. We can only study the matter by indirection, sort of like looking at an eclipse of the sun…

What if Jackie Robinson had been like Obama?

He was an…

Order the Crap Sandwich, Eat the Crap Sandwich

All things considered, any person could come spend a mere two days in my longtime home of San Diego and end up arguing it’s one of the greatest cities in America, if not THE greatest. You unfamiliars out there are probably telling yourselves, “Why, Myself, anyone who loves where he lives, like I do, could…

How about Putin for President of the U.S.?

obama-putin-handshake

I know that there would be difficulties in running Vladimir Putin for president of the United States. To begin with, he wasn’t born in the United States. But that was not an insurmountable obstacle for the incumbent. If Putin, who was born in what was then called Leningrad, were to produce documents indicating that he…

Superiority Complex

A few months ago while watching Justified, AKA “one of the greatest shows EVER”, I was treated to one of my favorite axioms. Deputy U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens, as usual played excellently by Timothy Olyphant, had grown tired of a crook claiming to be a victim of circumstance, and criticized his lack of self-accountability thus (paraphrased):…

Don’t Worry about Big Brother

Obama-looking-at-computer

Yes, it’s true that the Obama administration has been intruding more and more into the private lives of our citizens, with electronic surveillance and the like, but don’t blame them. They are just picking up where George W. Bush left off. They don’t really want to impinge on the civil liberties of Americans, but because…
