“Not Just Another Poll” and “MSNBC: Where Anyone Can Be A Host”

If it were up to me, “Unfair and Unbalanced” would be the motto of MSNBC. Instead, they’ve chosen to go with “Lean Forward.” When your hosts include the likes of Rachel Maddow, Chris Matthews, Ed Schultz, Woody Allen’s kid Ronan Farrow and Al Sharpton, you’re not really running a cable news network, though. It’s really more of an asylum for the insane and the inane.

Where Children Should Pee – Is That Really a Government Priority?

get-your-priorities-straight

America is facing a whole lot of problems and the bozos in government don’t know how to set priorities.  For example, there are certain things that affect all of us as Americans.  Our almost 17,000,000,000,000.00 national debt, unemployment, the ever-rising welfare state, the IRS targeting select groups of citizens, the killing of four of our citizens…

Crimes & Misdemeanors

If I were a time traveler from an earlier age, I’m sure that along with our music, manners and clothing, the thing that would mystify me the most is our legal system. For openers, I would not understand why rapists and pedophiles are not executed, or at the very least locked away in dungeons to…

These are political activists whose lives are built around actually trying to wage successful campaigns in a state so blue, it could be renamed East Hawaii. In…

Rancid Rhetoric

Now that you’ve read this article, Burt hopes you’ll enjoy The Final Days. Liberals are always up in arms over what they deem to be pollution of the atmosphere, whether it takes the form of global warming, oil exploration, fracking, coal mining or the internal combustion engine. What doesn’t concern them in the least is…

Texas, Taxes & Brass Tacks

Rush Limbaugh once described politics as show business for ugly people. If he weren’t such a nice guy, he might have added that it also provides careers for really dumb ones. For instance, while chatting with Charlie Rose on “CBS This Morning,” Governor Jerry Brown went into a lengthy pitch for California business, pointing out…

Random Thoughts: Election 2010

thoughts-on-election-2010

When I finally turned off the tv last night, it was 12:30 in the morning here in Washington state and, despite percentage signs and other stats flashing in red and blue inside my brain, I miraculously fell asleep.  Three Senatorial races were still undecided when I finally went to bed, Washington, Colorado and Alaska, and…

Top Ten Least Favorite Events of Election 2010

If you’re like me, I love election season.  I’m not a sports fan, so I don’t ever cheer for a home team.  Election time is the only time I get to root for my guy or gal.  I’m sure many have had enough of the political ads including the parents of my 3-year old grand…
