None Dare Call it Tea-son

I recently wrote a comment on Facebook, that the NAACP should be renamed: The National Association Against Conservative Politics. I doubt I'm the first person to come up with that particular observation. It is very sad what has happened to this once...

Hope they do better with health care!

One of the best ways for a politician to impress voters, is to tell them how he/she loves education. It's sort of the modern day version of kissing babies (which is still safer, politically, than kissing interns). After all, everyone loves education --...

Liberals aren't liberal.

What is it about average Americans that liberals hate?  To listen to them, you'd think that most Americans are total idiots.  Not just idiots, but idiots that need government.  Government, as in "Big Government," administered from Washington D.C.  You...

The poor? What poor?

The late comedian and TV personality, Sam Levinson, remarked once, about growing up in his New York neighborhood, that everyone was poor, but none of the kids knew it, until one day the social worker came by and told them. Too often we hear...

Far Left Phony Intellectuals

A bad argument can often be made to sound quite intelligent. Hey, such arguments got O.J. off, and Obama elected. Those who are best at stupid arguments are lawyers, and intellectuals. Make that, liberal intellectuals. Their ability to make the idiotic...

Plain freaking outrageous!

I cannot believe that our government would drop charges after getting a conviction on voter intimidation of Black Panthers at a polling place, with weapons -- night sticks. I can't remember when I've been so disgusted with anyone or anything, as I am...

Happy 4th.

I hear a lot of noise outside. Fireworks, of course. That's fine. I appreciate the noisy celebration of our country's birth. I do wonder, though, if those setting the match to all of the cacophony, know what they're celebrating. Is history even being...

Ran-dumb thoughts

Is this World Cup Soccer stuff ever going to end? I know it's the world's most popular sport, but to me it's just a bunch of guys kicking a ball on an open field for two hours or so, and nobody ever scores. I couldn't be more bored if they...

Like, man, the media sucks!

My last effort was viewed by a grand total of four people -- including myself. Now, that's not very many, but it's almost as many viewers as MSNBC gets on a daily basis, and it's three more than have read Al Gore's last book. (Sorry, Al, I hope...

Flo, call me.

I'm thinking about getting into a serious, old fashioned relationship. In Vegas, old fashioned relationships are ones not involving ankle monitors or restraining orders. And I have the lady all picked out. She doesn't know I've picked her. She doesn't...

Way too long. Carried away. Sorry.

At exactly what point in the last forty years, did politicians decide their job was to "manage" things? They never used to be that way. In the "good old days," they mainly smiled, went on useless junkets, and sought reelection. Boring, but basic. Now...

Giving yourself a raise -- part 2.

Today, I'm going to finish giving my free advice on getting the most for your money. It's not a very "sexy" topic, I know. It is, though, a profitable skill to have. I mentioned previously, that in spending, the idea is to get value. Bang for the...

Spend smart, and give yourself a raise.

For the next day or so, I'll have nothing to say about politics. Instead, I'll write about what politicians know nothing about -- saving money. Regardless of economic conditions, getting value for one's purchases, is always important. I mean, if...

I love the drug companies.

Over a hundred years ago, the life expectancy in America, was 40-something.  Today, it's pushing 80.  Let's hear it for doctors, nurses, medical technology, and......... THE DRUG COMPANIES!   As life spans increase, certainly they deserve a lot of...

Hey, buddy, wanna buy a Constitution?

Any day now, I expect to see the U.S. Constitution on the side of a milk carton. I don't know when it was abducted, but I sure would like it back. I sometimes wonder how many people have actually read it. It's only the most important document in...

Liberal no more.

I once wrote on my Facebook page -- nobody reads it, either -- that liberals tend to fall into two categories: well-meaning idealists, and idiots. There are many subcategories that include: guilty whites, the guilty middle class, the guilty upper...

Obama's associations.

In my life, I've seen a lot of Presidents come and go.  Some I liked, others I didn't.  I have never had a President that put me ill at ease.  Until now.  It's far more than he's a liberal, and I'm a conservative.  I had disagreements with Clinton,...

Careful what you wish for, Harry Reid

I voted today, in the Nevada primary.  Sharron Angle, the Teaparty endorsed candidate, won.  Good for her.  Nothing against her opponents, but Nevada hasn't had all that many truly conservative candidates over the years.  Political "experts" are...

Paul McCartney -- Idiot.

Paul McCartney recently said that it's good to have a President again who knows what a library is. This was a direct slam at George Bush. Note, that he didn't say that he had differences with the previous administration, and was happy to receive an...

This time it's the Republicans that blew it.

Hi, thanks for stopping by. Sometimes someone comes up with a great idea.  Sometimes this person is a friend, or family members.  It could be a complete stranger.  And sometimes the idea is so great, that it makes the world a better place. ...

Wealthy America

Why is the American standard of living so high? How did we get so, um, rich? Rich, of course, is a comparative term. Certainly millions of us don't feel rich. I don't, although I don't feel poor, either. But compared to much of the world, we are rich....

Our President at West Point

I hope everyone's having a great day! Thank you for stopping by. I see our President is going to be speaking at the West Point Graduation, today. What a glorious day for these young men and women. The military academies graduate quality students,...

This one's for Emma Lazarus

 Hello to everyone. It's almost 7 a.m. here in Las Vegas, as I write this. The temperature is a nice 63, and promises to get up to 90-ish. That's rather warm, but come June and July, it will get up to hotter-than-heck-ish. Sorry, the weather is a...

Vegas voting

Hi.  I hope everyone who might read this is doing well today.  Thank you for stopping by. I received my ballot for the June primary election, yesterday.  Like other parts of the country, we're big on early voting here in Glitter Gulch.  Those...

Meeting Scotty Nguyen

Hello again, from Southern Nevada, a place where the mountains are surmountable, but the casino odds are not.  Many thanks to those who took the time to read yesterday's blog.  The Internet is really a remarkable creation.  To think that I can bore...
