“Liberals & Locusts” and “Poll Results & Other Matters”

You don’t hear that much about locusts today. Not unless you read the Bible or know how the Mormons came to settle in Salt Lake City. But at one time, people lived pretty much in dread of what a swarm of them could do to farmland; namely, devour everything in sight, leaving devastation and famine…

But Think Of The Children

Frankly, I’m sick and tired of thinking about the children. It’s not that I have anything against them in general, but it’s always a specific group of them over whom I’m supposed to be fretting. For instance, these days, I’m supposed to cry myself to sleep because of the Central American tots who are flooding…

Both Obama and Palin Rooting for Impeachment

When John Boehner was asked about impeachment the other day, he said this: “We have no plans to impeach the president. We have no future plans. Listen, it’s all a scam started by Democrats at the White House.” Not exactly, Mr. Speaker. Boehner’s a busy man so perhaps he didn’t know it was Sarah Palin…

(Ain’t No Cure For) The Summertime Blues

We all need a vacation, perhaps no one more than President Obama. It's been a rough summer for Mr. Obama, and it's getting rougher. Let us count the ways. The economy continues to wobble, ObamaCare is still a mess, Benghazi hearings are set for September, the IRS looks more and more like a rogue agency,…

“Who Are These People?” and “Alas, Poor Obama, I Knew Him Well”

Sometimes, as I take in the passing scene, I find myself wondering if I went to sleep on earth and woke up on some other planet. And, mind you, it’s not just the politicians who are giving me this queasy feeling. For instance, Eric and Charlotte Kaufman are apparently the kind of people who are…

Want a Real Anti-Poverty Plan? Stop Amnesty!

It is now all the fashionable rage in Washington, D.C., to proclaim solidarity with America’s working poor in front of the cameras — while stabbing them in the back behind closed doors. Privileged Illinois Democratic Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky and others have taken to Twitter, posting photos of themselves eating tuna sandwiches and buying Ramen noodles…

Israel, Gaza and the Repulsive Moralists

More than 100,000 Arabs have been killed in the war raging in Syria.  How many more Arabs have been killed in Iraq by other Arabs since the U.S. pulled out all its troops?  How many Arabs have been killed by other Arabs before and since the Arab Spring?  Let’s just say, lots.  And what is…

The Genocide Libel

In order to justify killing Jews, Jew-haters throughout history made up libels about the Jews that were so awful that they justified, at least for the Jew-hater, the mass murder of Jews. The charge that the Jews of every age — not just some Jews at one time — killed God Himself was used by…
