Creeping to November.

I know people a lot better than I did many years ago. Part of this "wisdom" comes from "life experiences"-- a fancy way of saying "screwing up a lot." Also, for years I dealt poker, and saw people at their best and worst. Many times I've seen...

Security or Freedom?

There are many very nice hotels here in Vegas, as you know -- Caesars, Bellagio, Venetian, and many others. Let's play hypothetical. Let's say you're an adult, just getting started in life. You're given a choice. The first choice is that you can...

Did Obama Write His Autobiography?

Google "Google books," and write in Bill Ayers. Among his "works," listed, is "Dreams of my Father." This was put forth on The American Thinker. I checked it out just a few minutes ago. It's listed. What this actually means, I don't know. While...

Obama Must Go.

Politicians are always saying stupid stuff. But Obama does it on a daily basis. I think it was yesterday, he said another one. "We can't cut our way to prosperity." Oh, BROTHER! Look, either he's not very smart, or he thinks we're idiots. Making...

Phony Intellectuals.

In the classic poker movie "The cincinnati Kid," there's a scene at the table where a professor-type is busy writing stuff down, doing calculations, trying to beat "The Man," Edward G. Robinson. After losing a big pot, one of the players asks why...

Pooch and Tart Wars.

Lots of weird stuff going on lately. Doggie-gate is my favorite. Seems that Romney once had the family pooch travel on top of the car, while traveling on vacation. I just had to laugh out loud when I heard about this. I guess it was encased in...

Mitt Romney: Rebel Without a Coke.

I've been reading and hearing lately, that Obama's "strategy" in the upcoming election will be to portray Mitt Romney as "extreme." Really, Mr. President? Whatever. It seems to me that Obama calling another person "extreme" is a lot like Charlie...

Obama and the Chicks.

A joke I read many, many years ago, claimed that the war of the sexes will never be won -- too much fraternization with the enemy. Mostly undercover, I might add.   I keep reading and hearing that women support Obama more...

The Lazy Poor.

Yeah, you read the title right. And if you're thinking it's a stereotypical insult to poor people, you'd be right. No decent person calls the poor "lazy." Fine. So, why is it okay to talk about the "greedy rich?" Is that not an unfair stereotype?...

Liberals and Communism. Ho Hum.

If someone of any party or ethnic background, had launched a campaign in the home of a Nazi, do you think that person would one day be considered a presidential candidate? If a White House Christmas tree bulb had a picture of Hitler on it, do you...

Liberals, Quit Trying to HELP!

One great thing about living in Las Vegas, and it has nothing to do with gambling, is the variety of people you come in contact with. Growing up in Michigan, most people I knew, also grew up in the state, or at least in neighboring states like...
