A Tale of Two Debates

Tonight, I watched the GOP Presidential debate from Mesa, Arizona. Last night, I attended a Congressional debate here in the San Fernando Valley. There was a world of difference between them. The biggest difference is that I got a big kick out of last night’s event, even though the candidate I’ll be voting for hasn’t…

Unburdening Myself

We all realize that the members of the media, including several of the talking heads who appear regularly on Fox News, have one thing in common; namely, that Barack Obama plays a leading role in all of their favorite wet dreams. But, still, wouldn’t you think that just once, some reporter would ask Obama to…

GOP Primaries… The Final Frontier

As a Republican, I’ve been finding it hard to stay upbeat while watching the daily drama of the presidential primary campaign. It’s taken disappointing, unexpected turns and it’s been disheartening to see how personal it has become. So, I thought it might be a good time to lighten up the tone, escape the angry rhetoric,…

Vegetables, Vampires & Ron Paul

I only wish I could…

Who’s Afraid of the Big Bad Bilderberg?

Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas)

Burt’s been unusually productive lately. When you finish reading this article, be sure to read “Political Correctness 2012.” It seems that whenever I point out that a true conservative is not ever likely to win the presidency in a country that is only slightly right of the middle, I can count on hearing from people…

Why Did Ron Paul Get a Pass on His “Hates Muslims” Comment?

When I saw the Tonight Show video clip of Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul saying that fellow candidates Michele Bachmann and Rick Santorum “hate Muslims”, I was sure it had been taken out of a context. I figured that maybe Jay Leno had jokingly asked Paul to describe how critics would try and frame each…
