Cheerios Going Against the Grain?

I can't believe I've lived long enough to see Cheerios involved in a controversy.  What other shocks am I in for?  Marie Osmond is a meth head?  Michelle Obama sneaks Cheez-its?  Joe Biden has a measurable IQ?  Is there NO constancy to life?  Guess...

What's WRONG With Doing Nothing?

I know that liberals consider themselves "rebels" and counter culture types.  Very hip, trendy, and always challenging the status quo.  Sometimes.  But mostly they're all ABOUT the status quo.  More big spending programs, more taxes, more regulation,...

Bleep the SOTU, my TV is HERE!

Why would anyone who opposes the current administration watch the SOTU speech?  Maybe to keep an eye on the opposition?  That makes sense.  But reading a summary would work just as well.  You know, as you get older, you don't necessarily get wiser,...

The Anti-capitalist Hypocrites.

I've touched on some of what I'm going to write about, before, but I want to go into more detail.   Just getting some thing out.  Look, for all of those who are too cool for capitalism, and think corporations or the rich in general, are the...

Raw Stats are Deceiving.

When it comes to stats, people need to understand that there's a difference between HOW things are, and WHY things are.  They also need to understand that there's a difference between reality, and the ideal.  Recently some cable show host said that...

Liberal Baby Killers.

I was around before legalized abortion.  I remember the debate, and what the left was saying in the 60's and very early 70's.  Whyyy, abortion is a right, and when legalized, it will be RARE.  Conservatives warned that legalized abortion would be used...

Then and Now: A Look Back.

It has become a running gag, over the years, telling how one's parents or grandparents would talk about their long walks to school in the snow, and with each telling, the walk got longer, and the snow got deeper.  I heard such stories from my parents...

Looking Back at King and the 60's.

Aside from Martin Luther King's well known accomplishments in the area of freedom, he also has the distinction of being the ONLY Christian clergyman they ever quote.  Anyone else pick up on that?   By the time of his assassination in 1968, King...

Love Da Corporations!

I'm in the market for a new TV, so while I was going through the Sunday ads, it got me to thinking, once again, about those EVIL corporations, and how they're ruining America.  That's the ever popular, and ohhh sooooo cool prevailing attitude, anyway....

Bad Arguments.

Sometimes what people say, is downright embarrassing.  Bad arguments, stupid "logic," and spinning, all contribute to the national stupidity when it comes to formulating a reasonable position.  The examples are too numerous to mention.  Okay, if you...

The Myth of the "Living Wage."

I'll say one thing for liberals, they know how to get their message stuck in the collective mind of the American people.  Terms like "affordable" health care or housing, "fair share," and "living wage," are familiar to everyone.  All sound so...

CEOs Underpaid?

I was playing poker online, yesterday, (It's legal in Nevada!) while Stossel was on.  I had the sound off on the TV, but I turned it on from time to time.  Anyway, it was pointed out by Bob Beckel that the free market doesn't work, because these CEOs...

PSST! YOU May be a One-percenter.

The median global income, is $1,250 a year.  If you make, after taxes, $34,000 you're in the top one percent, globally.  In other words, if you're in this group, you may not impress all that many people, but to much of the rest of the world, you're...

Cop Killer Attorney, Obama Bundler: Come on DOWN!

What does it take to wake up the American public?  A few recent developments make me wonder.  First off, the person who is to investigate the IRS messing with conservative groups has donated over $6000 to Obama's campaigns, indicating that she...

Forced Charity?

There are days when I feel that if I hear even one more person talk about what the government has to do, to deal with economic "inequality," that I will literally scream.  What the freak!  Look, to me, it's simple.  Your problems are not my problems,...

Enabling the System Suckers.

I don't know much about a lot of things, but I do know a little bit about people.  So when I hear the president and other libs whine about the nasty conservatives who would deny people unemployment benefits, even after having been out of work for a...

Women Marines Can't do Three Pullups?

I've been thinking, for some strange reason, a lot about the mini-controversy concerning women marines having to complete three pullups.  Over half couldn't do it.  And people are STILL talking about putting women in combat?  This is a pet peeve of...

Sometimes Privilege is a Disadvantage.

And sometimes the "underdog" is actually the favorite.  In Malcolm Gladwell's book "David and Goliath," he demonstrates this quite well.  He uses the biblical tale of David and Goliath, to show that although we all think of David as the underdog, he...
