The Bunk Stops Here

The usual sob sisters were at it again because it took Joseph Wood — who had murdered his ex and her father in cold blood 25 years ago — two hours to die of a lethal injection. The question, though, shouldn’t be why it took him that long to finally die but, rather, why it…

Rand Paul, I’m Talking To You!

Isolationists are always insisting that America can’t be the world’s policeman; what they don’t tell you is who should be. After all, even the most liberal pinheaded pacifist wouldn’t dare suggest this is a safe world. So who gets the job? The U.N.?! There are two reasons that’s a lousy idea. The first is that…

“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…

“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…

“Planet of the Apes” and “I’m From The Government…”

Every so often the Palestinians pick a fight with Israel for the sole purpose of provoking the Israelis to retaliate. Once, thanks to the terrorists sticking women and children in target zones, the civilian casualties pile up, the world, led by the U.S., can be counted upon to condemn the Israelis for over-reacting and to…

Drug Cartels & Left-Wing Cults

We are told that the thousands of Central American kids streaming into America aren’t really illegal aliens, that, instead, they’re refugees from those Central American countries where the drug cartels rule. My brainstorm is that we stop worrying about Muslims killing Muslims in the Middle East and, instead, send our military to Honduras, Salvador and…

“Illegal Aliens Are What They Are” and “Moral Equivalency & Other Fallacies”

The only difference between the Democrats and the Republicans when it comes to illegal immigration is that the Democrats stand to benefit from increasing the Hispanic vote. But both are equally guilty when it comes to not stemming the invasion. Otherwise, we would hear the Republican politicians demanding that a huge wall be erected along…
