A Stroll Through My Brain

After you finish this article, Burt hopes you’ll also enjoy Ringing In the New Year. This past year may have set a record for shootings involving multiple victims. The worst of these was the massacre in Newtown, CT, where Adam Lanza murdered 20 little children and seven adults, including his mother, before finally killing himself….

Victory or Defeat?

I’m seated here at my computer on Thursday, November 1, 2012, five days before the most important presidential election of my lifetime and very likely, the nation’s. According to most polls, it’s a dead heat. Frankly, I don’t believe the polls. I believe that in spite of crooked voting machines, dead voters and third party…

Libya, Oh Libya

After you’ve read this article, Burt hopes you’ll also enjoy The Geek Chorus. I was wondering how long it would take Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to take the blame for the murder of Ambassador Stevens and the other three Americans at the Libyan consulate. After the ensuing brouhaha promised to hurt Obama’s chances in…

No Winner in the Debate — But Maybe a Loser

VP Debate

I have this funny feeling that just about nobody will remember very much about what they heard during the vice presidential debate, but they’ll remember what they saw.

Remember when President Obama bragged about Joe Biden’s fiscal discipline cred in 2009? “To you, he’s Mr. Vice President, but around the White House, we call him the Sheriff,” Obama warned government employees. “Because if you’re misusing taxpayer money, you’ll have to answer to him.” Fast-forward to 2012. Call in the search teams. Since being…

Romney Deserves a Break, Obama Doesn’t!

It’s not often I get to feel sorry for a multi-millionaire, but my heart goes out to Mitt Romney. Thanks to Team Obama working in cahoots with a corrupt media, he gets slammed no matter what he does. If he generalizes about his plans as president, he gets hit for being vague. But when he…

Bill O’Reilly, You’re Wrong…

Recently, Bill O’Reilly commented on the gaffe by Vice President Biden who told an audience in Virginia that the Republicans want to put “y’all back in chains” and the ad which showed a Paul Ryan look-alike throwing a grandma off a cliff.  In both cases, Bill concluded that no one, regardless of their extreme ideology, could believe Republicans want…

Should Biden Drop Obama From the Ticket?

As a rule, the guy running for president chooses a running mate he thinks will help him win a specific swing state, which explains Kennedy picking Johnson. Sometimes he picks someone whom, he hopes, will energize the electorate, which explains McCain picking Palin. But, nearly always, he selects a person nobody really wants to see…
