Bad Numbers for our Offender-in-Chief.

Lately, we've been hearing a lot about how hard it will be to defeat Obama in 2012. The opinion polls show he's not doing too bad, considering. I don't think so. I mentioned Rasmussen the other day. Well, as I said, his poll divides...

Obama: Phreaking Phony.

Some things in life defy explanation, like David Letterman having an audience, or people's fascination with Paris Hilton. What's the big deal with Kim Kardashian? How could Pia Toscano get voted off "Idol" so soon? How could so many people in...

Life in the Fat Lane.

People are wired rather strangely. Or maybe it's just me. I can be watching television, see where there was some terrible natural disaster that killed a dozen people, and say to myself, Gee, that's too bad. On the other hand, I might hear someone...

Sinking the Ship of State.

  Our current economic mess is what happens when Gilligan gets to play "Skipper." How in the heck can a country elect such an evil dunce? I've said it so many times, even I'm getting sick of it: Liberal is one thing, but radical is another. The...

Eliminate Welfare.

There is a tendency in liberal "circles" to categorize people. Categories are many, including: racial, gender, sexual preference ("often" is not a choice), religious, and of course, economic. Of all of these groups, economic and religion are the...

Seeing Things as They ARE.

In the late 90's I worked for a very intelligent man at a local poker room. One day he comes into work all upset. He lost a $20 bet on an exhibition football game. "These games are all fixed!" he grumbled. I asked him if he meant that literally,...

Go Compromise Yourself.

And the award for the most hypocritical and ingenuous pie-hole flapping, goes tooooooooooo ... WE HAVE A TIE!: The lamestream media and the Democratic Party! Accepting for the media is Chris Matthews. What? Oh, Chris couldn't make it. His tingly...

Liberalism in Two Words.

Ayn Rand was once asked by a female fan, about the sex scenes in her novels. The woman remarked how passionate and forceful they were. Then she asked if they were based on personal experience. Rand, never known for her sense of humor, remarked...

Fixing Everything.

Okay, football season is going to be starting soon. It looks like the lockout, strike, or whatever it is, will be settled. So, before now and then, I guess I'll fix all or at least most of the nation's problems. That way I can concentrate on the...

Crass Warfare.

One interesting feature about our fearless leader, he will never surprise anyone by doing the right thing. True to his "roots," he follows the Marxist playbook all the way. And why not? He HAS a job -- until next year. Despite the failure of the...

Elderly Libs: The 60's Weren't Kind to Them.

I wrote a short while ago, about why young people are liberals. Pretty much it's because they are idealistic, and unaware that liberalism weakens freedom. For centuries people have looked to their government as a way of providing everyone with...

Obama is Bluffing!

  Our poor, poor President. This guy is nothing without a teleprompter. Yesterday, walking out of debt-ceiling negotiations in a huff (in other words, he was late for golf) he tells House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, "Eric, don't call my bluff....

Why are Young People Liberal?

It has been a long time since I was considered young. When I was growing up, dirt was strictly theoretical, and my childhood friend was some kid named "Bam-Bam." Okay, I exaggerated a tad. The first election in which I voted was in 1968. Humphrey...

"Liberal Economics" is an Oxymoron.

Well, now that the unemployment rate has jumped again, pundits are already writing about how Republicans will use this as "ammunition" against the president's economic policy, especially in the upcoming election. In this case, the "ammunition" is,...

Liberals Never Learn.

Most people have heard Einstein's definition of insanity: Doing the same thing, over and over, expecting different results. Well, that's pretty much what liberalism is, and what liberals do. For all the media hype in 2008 about Obama being a...

Hey, Politicians: Live Within Your Means!

Would someone please tell me what is so special about our government, that it can't cut back on its spending? I mean, I found a special on two-liter Coke at the corner drugstore -- sixty-nine cents a bottle -- and I was out the door faster than...

Fourth of July Ramblings.

When I think of July fourth, like so many others, I think of freedom. Our founding fathers were taking a big chance declaring independence from England. They were literally putting their lives on the line for a principle of limited government, and...

Poker's Life Lessons -- Part I.

It's interesting how people change over the years. About a year ago, someone here in Vegas asked what caused me to change my political beliefs over the years. The truth is, I changed, not so much because one side made more sense than the other, but...

Fun With Dick and Shame.

So, Mark Halperin gets himself suspended for saying that he thought President Obama was "kind of a dick." He thought his comments wouldn't get aired, because the show was on a seven-second delay. True enough, but the producer didn't know which...
