The 1960s Live Again

I have long insisted that the decline of America began roughly 50 years ago. That was the decade that saw the liberals take a hacksaw to the black family, as LBJ and thousands of social workers did everything they could to drive black husbands and fathers out of the household. It also saw the advent…

I Am Not, Thank God, George Soros

It would appear that the DNC has me confused with George Soros. I don’t know why this would be. For one thing, he was born in Hungary and I was born in Chicago, so we sound nothing alike. For another thing, he has a full head of hair and I only have a cute little…

The Sad State of the Union

[Burt & Yvonne wish all his readers on BernardGoldberg.com a very Happy and Prosperous New Year!] Recently, a reader wrote to ask me why anyone would spend a million dollars to become a member of Congress, a job that pays less than $200,000 a year. I explained that there were several reasons. One, they seek…

Political Correctness 2012

Burt’s been remarkably productive recently, and you’re all the beneficiaries! After you read this article, scroll down to read the Who’s Afraid of the Big Bad Bilderberg? Apparently the Obama family holiday in the islands will run us taxpayers $4,113,038, and that’s not counting Sno-cones, leis, surf board rentals and assorted Hawaiian souvenirs. Still, it’s…

Recently, in writing an article in which I was bemoaning all the tax dollars Obama blew on Solyndra, I typed $500 “billion” before I realized I had meant to type $500 “million.” Fortunately, I corrected it before the article was posted. The reason I’m mentioning it is to acknowledge that we are all prone to…

Coming to Grips With My Gripes

Mitt Romney

I have my own problems with Mitt Romney, but I have to confess that when Rick Perry and others deride him as a flip-flopper, I take personal umbrage.  For one thing, I was raised to be a Democrat and remained one until the strain just got to be too much for me, just as it…

Peeking Behind the Liberal Curtain

Even though I’m of their generation, I used to wonder how it was that so many people could stand listening to Bob Dylan and Mick Jagger sing. Even allowing for honest differences in taste, I couldn’t figure out their popularity. Then one day I decided that their fans, most of whom were my contemporaries, were…

Confessions of an Ex-Democrat

When you’re a conservative, it’s just about impossible, unless you’re the sort of person who wins million dollar lotteries, to not have some friends and relatives who are liberal. The secret, I’ve found, to maintaining even slightly cordial relationships with them is to never share your honest opinions about anything important, sliding through social occasions…
