A Stubborn Parent’s Challenge: Fending Off the Video Game Culture

video

Every six months or so, my wife and I get into an animated discussion over my stubborn reluctance to buy a video game system for our children. Her case always comes with a bullet list of arguments: It will build their hand-eye coordination;  It will give them a head-start on technology they’ll use later in…

The Liberal Media Views Race Through the Eyes of Michael Scott

MichaelScott

One of my all time favorite television characters is Michael Scott from The Office (back when the show was still funny). The self-centered and incompetent, though well-meaning office manager was portrayed masterfully by actor Steve Carell. One of the many trademarks of the character was his internal need to demonstrate to his subordinates that he…

Yes, Romney is Rich. Is that a Bad Thing?

Imagine that your husband, wife, or child was in a terrible car accident. Imagine you were told by physicians that a complicated surgery was the best option to save their life and assure a successful recovery.  Imagine that a skilled surgeon was readily available to perform the surgery. What would you think if a hospital…

Why Did Ron Paul Get a Pass on His “Hates Muslims” Comment?

ronpaul

When I saw the Tonight Show video clip of Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul saying that fellow candidates Michele Bachmann and Rick Santorum “hate Muslims”, I was sure it had been taken out of a context.

Kids’ Villains – From Terrorists to “Big Oil” in 30 Years

Terrorism vs Big Oil

Being a father of young children, I’ll occasionally find myself wrangled into taking my family to the movie theater to catch one of Hollywood’s latest family films. Last week, it was the new Muppets movie. I must admit that my expectations for the film weren’t all that high. Although I enjoyed the Muppet Show when…

Attention Mika Brzezinski: The Occupiers Aren’t Homeless… They Just Smell That Way

Mika Bzezinski

Monday, on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, lefty sidekick Mika Brzezinski got pretty emotional. She was upset… I mean really upset with comments Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich made at a recent GOP forum. In discussing the Occupy Wall Street movement, Gingrich ended a diatribe on the hypocrisy and moral falsity of the protesters by suggesting they…

Read This!!! — But Only If You Have Nothing Better To Do

Seinfeld

This is my Seinfeld column.  It’s about nothing. Every now and then I can’t think of anything to say.  That can be a liability when you have a column to fill.  Sure, I could write about the Mormon cult thing and say the Baptist minister who said Mormons aren’t real Christians is an idiot.  But…

An Open Letter to My True-Believing Friends

goldberg-open-letter

Hello readers.  Not all of you.  Just the ones who think I’m an idiot. You know, the ones who have been writing to me saying, “Dear Bernie, You just don’t get it.” I started getting these love letters after my last piece about purists vs. realists, true-believers vs. those of us who want the most…
