Can America Be Saved?

Although I am by nature an optimist, I must admit that even I have begun to suspect that our nation’s best years, like my own, are behind us. As some of you will recall, just prior to the 2012 presidential election, I wrote that I was confident America could survive another four years of Obama,…

Redskins & Thin Skins

The U.S. Senate under the guidance – or, if you prefer, the thumb — of Harry Reid isn’t interested in getting to the bottom of scandals involving the IRS Benghazi or the Veterans Administration. But half the Senate—50 members, count ‘em, 50 – decided that the worst problem facing us was that their hometown football…

“I Used To Be A Democrat” and “Do Liberals Ever Listen To Themselves?”

It’s true that for a long time, an inexcusably long time, I was a registered Democrat. But even then, I never called myself a liberal. Because I came of age in the 1960s, I associated liberals with the punks I knew who called cops “pigs,” called soldiers “baby killers” and used any and all means…

The Nattering Nabobs of the Left

Whenever I think about liberals, I feel the wires in my brain begin to sizzle. What in the world makes them say and do such absurd things? For instance, why do journalists insist on lying about their political affiliation? When half of them claim to be Independents and only 20% confess to being registered Democrats,…

“A Primer For GOP Candidates” and “Hillary, Barack and Bowe”

I get very discouraged when I come across polls that show Barack Obama’s job approval rate as high as 43.9% and a generic congressional ballot that has Democrats leading Republicans 43% to 42.3%, even though the percentage of those thinking that America is headed in the right direction stands at just 29.8%. Apparently, about 14%…

Pot Shots and Pit Stops

As most of you know, I am often pointing out the problems I have with liberal arts colleges. I am bothered by the cost of their tuitions, by the radical politics of their professors and by the craven cowardice of their administrators. Taken in order, there is no good reason why parents and students should…

“Impeachment, the VA & the NFL” and “Pandering Used To Be A Crime”

A very bright reader of mine wrote, calling for Obama’s impeachment. Although I share his concern for the harm the man has caused America and the world, I wouldn’t like to see the GOP once again crawl out on that very precarious limb armed only with good intentions and a chainsaw. As I see it,…

“Dear Pope Francis: Shut the **** UP!” and “Ridiculing the Ridiculous”

I don’t think that most people would disagree with the statement that race relations in America were better before Barack Obama took office. Between him and the race card hustler Eric Holder, the divide hasn’t been this large in decades. In similar fashion, I believe that Pope Francis has set back Catholic/Jewish relations. Although his…
