Opinions

It’s said that everyone has opinions, but I sense that most people don’t have as many as I do. Sometimes they become such a burden that I simply have to unload them the way Santa unloads his bag of toys, lest I suffer a hernia of the brain. So, to begin with, when did people…

The Conspiracy Theorist’s Form of Blind Justice

It doesn’t surprise me that a lot people were disappointed by the acquittal of George Zimmerman – the Martin family in particular. They believed, as most parents would in the same situation, that the man who shot their 17 year-old child deserved to be held accountable in some meaningful way for the taking of their…

Trayvon Martin – The Cast of Characters

On February 26th, I was no where near the shooting of Trayvon Martin so I have no idea what happened.  I don’t know Trayvon; I don’t know George Zimmerman.  I don’t know if Trayvon did anything to provoke George and I have no idea what went on in George’s head or heart so I have…

Beer Summit, Anyone?

As I sit here, it has not yet been determined what actually took place in Sanford, Florida, and whether George Zimmerman will be arrested and tried for shooting Trayvon Martin. Except for Mr. Zimmerman and his friends and family, that will be of little concern. What really matters is that America’s leading racists, Barack Obama,…

Ruth Bader Ginsburg & Other Catastrophes

I must confess that I was never as big a fan of Sarah Palin as some Republicans. But honesty compels me to confess that much of my antipathy derived from the fact that her voice had the same effect on me that bagpipes and fingernails on a blackboard have on others. So the fact that…

Jesse Jackson is Not Smart

jesse-jackson

Every time Jesse Jackson speaks, it sounds like he’s auditioning for a bad off Broadway play called An Escape from Reason. Jackson is a stammering mess; fundamentally unintelligent and rapidly losing the ability to draw upon the powers of smart improvisation that served him so well in the old days. He is more of a magic tonic salesman…

Diversity Training = Spam

diversity_is_spam

As far as I’m concerned, diversity training is like spam.  Too many people get it and nobody wants it. I recently read that the U.S. Agriculture Department has hired a consulting firm to advise it on “diversity” matters.  Agriculture Secretary, Tom Vilsack has “taken a number of actions to make his department more sensitive to…

Selective Apologies

politicians_and_public_figures_aplogize

The recent firing by NPR of Juan Williams (one of two of my favorite liberals) brought to mind, once again, something that I’ve seen over and over again in the media — public apologies. Not from Mr. Williams.  His statement about Muslims on airplanes requires no apology – his opinion is shared, I’m sure, by…
