Gold Medals, Fried Chicken & Antiques

Now that the Winter Olympics are over for another four years, let me say, at the risk of being regarded as a party pooper, that I think the Games are one of the worst ideas anyone has ever come up with. As far back as 1948 and 1952, I knew that when people praised them…

Ted-ious Nugent

I understand that right-wing celebrities are in such short supply that we conservatives can’t help swooning over those whose politics jibe with ours. Still, should we be so enchanted that we are willing to overlook the fact that Ted Nugent appears to be both dumb and a potty mouth? Mr. Nugent certainly has the right…

“The World Is A Bad Soap Opera” and “It’s Not Hearsay, It’s Heresy”

Note: Burt’s Webcast Starts Wednesday, March 12, 1PM Pacific Time! The phone number is (225) 209-6188 The health and fashion magazines keep telling their readers that 60 is the new 50, and 50 is the new 40, and so on. We now have further proof that college is the new high school. It seems that…

“Putin on the Ritz” and “Obama, the Impaler”

Burt’s Webcast Starts on March 12, 1PM Pacific Time! The phone number is (225) 209-6188 Ever since Vladimir Putin decided to restore the former Soviet Union, I have admired his restraint. I’m serious. I mean thus far, all he’s done is venture a little way into Georgia and, as of this moment, into a small…

The Heartbreak of Liberalism

It’s easy, not to mention great fun, to ridicule liberals. But so long as you’re not totally devoid of the compassion gene, it’s hard not to feel sorry for them. For instance, imagine you voted for Barack Obama in 2008 because you believed all the high-sounding hooey he spewed, ignoring his background and his associates….

Good News & Bad

There are times, I’m sure we’d all agree, when it seems that good news is a thing of the past. But if you look hard enough, sometimes you’ll spot a nugget. For instance, I recently learned that in Russia, 25% of the men die before the age of 55. That’s because, on average, their consumption…

The Insanity Goes Round and Round

Christians are being persecuted, often murdered, in over a hundred countries at this very moment. Most of the massacres and church burnings are taking place in the Middle East, a gigantic swamp whose only redeeming features are oil and Israel, and the Orient, where China, Vietnam and North Korea, are proving themselves the swinish equals…

The Mad Hatter Rules

While recuperating from surgery and the flu, I risked a relapse by watching Bill O’Reilly interview Barack Obama in an event that could have been titled “The Clash of Egos.” I understood what was in it for the two of them. O’Reilly got an audience several times larger than the few million who tune in…
