“The Attack Of The Cuckoos” and “Ebola & Other Epidemics”

How it is that so many cuckoos escaped from their clocks and have wound up in positions of authority, I will never know. But there’s no getting around the fact that the American symbol is no longer a bald eagle or even Ben Franklin’s preferred turkey, but has been replaced by the Swiss-made cuckoo bird….

“Notes From My Bunker” and “To Impeach Or Not To Impeach”

One of my readers is given to sending me messages fraught with anger and frustration over news items related to the ever-increasing amount of madness in the world. In his last communique, he let me know that it was getting to be too much for him to bear and that he had resorted to listening…

But Think Of The Children

Frankly, I’m sick and tired of thinking about the children. It’s not that I have anything against them in general, but it’s always a specific group of them over whom I’m supposed to be fretting. For instance, these days, I’m supposed to cry myself to sleep because of the Central American tots who are flooding…

Should the Media Point Out the “I Told You Sos?”

It sure has been fascinating over the past couple of days to turn on Fox News and see clip after clip of President Obama and other prominent Democrats mocking Mitt Romney, during the 2012 campaign, for recognizing Russia as a serious geopolitical threat. “The 1980s are calling to ask for their foreign policy back,” chided…

One of the things I don’t get about ObamaCare is that they are overcharging young people for health care because those extra dollars are supposed to fund health care services for old folks. But at the same time, we all know that those death panels Sarah Palin warned us about will be denying meds and…

Last February, as part of a White House push for a ban on semi-automatic rifles in response to the Newtown, Connecticut shooting, Vice President Joe Biden offered some advice to a mother who was concerned about losing the ability to protect her children inside their home. “Buy a shotgun, buy a shotgun,” he told the…

Wrangling with Rangel

Rep. Charles Rangel (D-NY)

After you finish this article, be sure to read today’s bonus article, “Emptying the Attic.” A while back, I compared Sarah Palin’s voice to bagpipes and nails on a blackboard. Predictably, a number of people leapt to her defense, while one guy of Scottish heritage leapt to the defense of bagpipes. I understand that, thanks…

Pundit Vitriol is Only Newsworthy When it Comes From the Right

I’m a conservative… and I have absolutely no trouble recognizing when a public figure from my side of the political spectrum makes a derogatory comment that goes too far. Radio commentator, Rush Limbaugh recently made such a comment when he referred to Sandra Fluke as a “slut” and compared her to a prostitute on his…
