“Counting Down to Jan. 20, 2017″ and “Libertarians + Liberals = Lunacy”

There used to be a popular radio show, followed by an equally popular TV show, called “The Amateur Hour.” Singers, comedians and musicians, including even accordion players, would seek fame and fortune by competing on the show. These days, that notion has morphed into any number of similar shows, the most successful of which is…

Will Any of the Republican Candidates Go Out With Their Dignity?

dignity

It’s been disheartening to see how this year’s Republican presidential candidates have behaved in response to dropping poll numbers. The campaign started out so optimistic with each candidate eager to make an impression on the viewing public. They all spoke out proudly about their conservative principles and how they would apply those principles, if elected,…

The Case for Logic

Herman Cain

The only thing in shorter supply in America than jobs, shovel-ready or otherwise, is logic. And with most liberal arts professors taking their lead from Saul Alinksy and Noam Chomsky, not Socrates, it doesn’t appear that college students will start thinking for themselves anytime soon. For instance, how is it that every other group in…

Did the Media Play Fair with Herman Cain?

The reason I’m mentioning it is to acknowledge that we are all prone to…

Corruption in America

Joe Paterno Statue

[Burt has been unusually prolific of late. Please enjoy this extra bonus article also published today!] By now I’m sure that even people who have less interest in college football than I, if such a thing is possible, are aware of the sex scandal that tore Penn State apart.  It does not surprise me that…

What If Herman Cain Did It?

Bialek and Allred

We still don’t know what Herman Cain did or didn’t do, and there’s a good chance we never will.  But this much is for certain:  the story is no longer what it used to be. It used to be a story with unnamed sources and unnamed allegations.  What did Herman Cain supposedly do?  Who knows? …

Quo Vadis, Herman Cain?

With one percent of Americans paying most of the income taxes in America, while 47% pay nothing, it figures that Democrats would decide that the fair thing to do is to force the one-percenters to pay even more. That is what liberals refer to as social justice, which they believe is better than just plain…
