The Notion That Commercialism is Now an Obscenity

My family doesn’t make it to the movie theater often. Let me rephrase that: We don’t make it to the movie theater AS a family often. My son and daughter are lucky enough to have a grandmother who loves taking them to see the latest animated, family flicks. And my wife and I, on occasion,…

Is This Country Going Nuts Or What?

I don’t know if we’re turning into a bunch of spineless, whiny, wussies or if we’re just going nuts.  This endless quest to be politically correct in all areas of our lives is just plain crazy. Take for example this pathological need to change how we normally speak.  TheUniversity of North Carolina will no longer use the word…

Tolerance is Now a One-Way Street

Debate.  According to my dictionary, it means to deliberate, consider, to engage in argument by discussing opposing points, to engage in a formal discussion or argument. Bottom line.  There has to be opposing viewpoints in order to have a debate otherwise you have a one-sided conversation. Well, apparently, officials in the Shawano School District is Wisconsin don’t seem to understand…

What Holiday Are We Celebrating?

I don’t know about you, but I get really tired of hearing about the lighting of “holiday” trees.  They’re Christmas trees.  There, I said it.

This had to be the dumbest thing I read last week.  Why, you ask? Let me start by saying, I don’t want to know or care how, when,…

The Nanny States of America

Minnesota, like so many states, is facing a harsh reality.  On July 1st, the government shut down and each side began blaming the other for failing to pass a budget that would solve the $5 billion deficit. What caught my attention was the story of Sonya Mills, a 39-year-old mother of eight children – six of…

GLAAD, the Gay Mafia

dramaqueen

All problems in the gay community have apparently been solved, which allows the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) the time to turn its attention to the entertainment industry, taking the fair and open minded position that any person or company that does not see things its way is the enemy, and must be…

Spring Sphere Roll, Anyone?

easter

Not content with attacking Christmas and changing the name of our decorated trees to “holiday trees” along with a whole lot of other stuff associated with Christmas, the PC loons are at it again – but this time they’re after – hold on to your seats – Easter eggs!  I’m not joking. While Easter is…
