Ted Nugent and His Conservative Media Enablers

Ted Nugent, the gun-toting rocker with a big mouth, has done it again.   His latest rant, not surprisingly, is about his favorite target, Barack Obama.  This is what he recently told guns.com: Barack Obama is a “Chicago communist-raised, communist-educated, communist-nurtured subhuman mongrel” and a “gangster.” Even if you ignore the communist and gangster rhetoric, Nugent…

With Conservatives Like These…

Mitt Romney

Santorum, Gingrich and Perry, all condemned Mitt Romney’s Bain Financial for putting people out of work. If anyone should be sidelined, it’s Santorum, Gingrich and Perry. For one thing, as every conservative who isn’t running behind in the primaries knows, venture capitalists put their money where their mouths are. Nothing ventured, nothing gained, as the…

Will Any of the Republican Candidates Go Out With Their Dignity?

It’s been disheartening to see how this year’s Republican presidential candidates have behaved in response to dropping poll numbers. The campaign started out so optimistic with each candidate eager to make an impression on the viewing public.

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…

The Political Facts of Life

After years of being exposed to the American media in all its forms, I’ve concluded that conservatives resent being lied to nearly as much as liberals hate being told the truth. It has also occurred to me that expecting socialists to be logical and to learn the lessons of history, even very modern history, is…

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…
