“Debunking Balderdash” and “Piling On Cliven Bundy”

The oracles at the New York Times recently announced that, economically, our own middle class has fallen behind that of our neighbor to the north. I’m not sure what their intention was in sharing this bad news. Heaven knows they’d never think of laying the blame for this embarrassment at the feet of Barack Obama…

Mistakes & Other Misdemeanors

Over the course of writing 1,400 articles, I have made some mistakes. Liberals would insist that each of the 1,400 is jam-packed with them, but they’d only be taking issue with my opinions and my conclusions. I’m not claiming that even conservatives agree with me all the time or that all of my jokes are…

“The Feds Are Not Our Friends” and “Nazis, American Style”

Fortunately, I no longer board a lot of airplanes because if I did, it would really piss me off that after a teenager flew to Hawaii in the wheel well of a jetliner, a spokesperson for the TSA said that nobody can be expected to prevent a kid from hopping over the fence at the…

Woody Allen & Other Pinheads

Even before he wound up sexually involved with the adopted daughter of his lover, Mia Farrow, when he was 56 and Soon-Yi was 19, I had little use for Woody Allen (born Allan Stewart Konigsberg). Except for “Hannah and Her Sisters” and “Broadway Danny Rose,” I had never liked his movies. Obviously Hollywood viewed him…

“A Nation of Flaws” and “Black Ninnies In The News”

We like to think of ourselves as a nation of laws, but, increasingly, it has become a meaningless term. For one thing, there is nothing great about obeying laws that are indecent. Slavery, after all, was perfectly legal for several decades in the United States, as was Jim Crow. Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union…

My Readers Chime In

As many of you already know, I refuse to access links or watch videos on my computer. I have tried to get the word out that although I appreciate my readers thinking of me, I don’t care to spend my time that way. Recently, I spelled it out for one of them: “Years ago,” I…

These Are Embarrassing Times

I believe it was Confucius who warned about the hazards of living in interesting times. I assume that was because they tended to be times of war, famine and pestilence, the sorts of things that tend to appeal to historians seeking grist for their mills. I am wondering if our current age, a time when…

“Conundrums” and “The Bogus Era”

In the immortal words of Oscar Hammerstein’s King of Siam, “Is a puzzlement.” Everything from the media’s silence when it comes to Benghazi to liberal voters not being even slightly perturbed by Obama’s constant lies about the Affordable Care Act, or the fascistic activities of the IRS, leaves my head spinning. A reader of mine…
