Wanna Save the World? Who's STOPPING you?

Where is it written that the only way to help save the planet, improve education, fight "the man," etc., is through government spending and more programs?  Whatever happened to individual participation?   Let me give you some examples.  I live...

Remember King and the Early 60's.

I suppose it's almost mandatory for anyone who appreciates freedom and individualism, to post about the fiftieth anniversary of Martin Luther King's "I Have a Dream," speech celebrating the 1963 March on Washington.  It's a historical moment that a...

Achy Breaky Hot. Hannah Montana: R.I.P.

  Okay, I admit it.  I just HAD to go on Youtube to see what all the farce was about, with Miley Ray Cyrus.  They had paraded her all over the news, yesterday.  Apparently the apocalypse (or a-pop-alypse) is at hand.  I can hardly be faulted for...

Obama the Transparent.

  Sometimes I think I'm the only person in America, who was NOT impressed that a black man was elected president.  Seriously, regardless of party, I could care less.  From listening to people back in '08, you'd think that no African American had...

Not Fonda "The Butler."

  I won't be seeing The Butler.  I understand that there are many who won't go, because of the casting of Jane Fonda as Nancy Reagan.  I completely understand.  It was a cheap shot doing so.  I mean, there are zillions of over-the-hill actresses...

Fixing Education.

    It is a rare day, indeed, when I don't find myself thinking the following after hearing something our president has said: How is it possible that one man can be so stupid?  I mean that, literally.  Just a minute ago, I saw a little blurb on...

Thrill Killers are not New.

  The first thing I thought of upon hearing about those three pieces of human garbage that killed that innocent Australian here on a baseball scholarship -- out of "boredom," no less -- was Loeb and Leopold, in the 1920's.  At one time, this was...

Smarter than Tech.

  Nothing political, today.  Some of the stuff going on is so dumb and futile, that I need to recharge, so to speak.  Instead, I'd like to relay an experience I had with Dell computers.  It will be long, drawnout, and seriously, won't be one of my...

Media Suckups.

  On CBS This Morning, Norah O'Donnell and Charlie Rose were falling all over themselves, making excuses for President Obama's playing fifteen games of Spades, while the bin Laden raid was going onl   O'Donnell: "... and clearly, the...

Ramblings about Capitalism.

Have you seen a Studebaker on the road, recently?  Been to any movies produced by RKO?  Have you slept in a Pullman car, lately?  Booked a flight on Pan Am?  When was the last time you had a Coke at Woolworth's?  All of these businesses were once a...

Let the Creeps Drop Out!

  Three kids beat a kid on a bus, breaking his arm, and giving him two black eyes.  The swift arm of the law comes down hard, seeking ... PROBATION.  No previous problems with the law, ya know.  In effect the State of Florida is saying, Okay, we'll...

Fame.

  I've been meaning to post about "celebrity" for a while now, and Oprah's recent Rosa Parks moment -- I was a terrible victim of racism when the mean shopgirl wouldn't show me a $38,000 bag... NEVER MIND!  incident, was just the encouragement...

What is? What isn't?

  It's not necessary to be really smart, in order to question, question, question, what we are told.  It's a great way to learn, and also a great way to keep from being taken in.  My favorite example of someone with a LACK of this curiosity,...

The NCAA Charlatans.

  So, I'm watching a player interviewed on the sideline during an NFL exhibition game.  I'm immediately struck by his TERRIBLE grammar.  It was embarrassingly bad, and was highlighted when he told the young lady with the microphone, "That's the...

Journalism or Tribalism?

Three fifteen-year old punks beat the stuffing out of a white kid on a school bus.  The media reported it, sort of.  I don't know for sure, but I doubt it was the lead on the evening news, or even reported at all.  (Kinda doubt it, what with Oprah...

Simple Self Defense Could Save Your Life.

   I just read about some loon who fatally stabbed an employee at a hardware store in Sacramento, 17 times.  The details are both strange and sickening, as you can imagine.  Seems he claimed that Allah favors the Raiders, for example.  Whaaa?  ...

Liveral Ideas and Programs Gone WILD!

My late father used to tell me that when he was growing up, his goal in life was to someday pay income tax.  Way back when, only the rich paid income tax, so that seemed a worthy goal.  Well, he never got rich, although he did okay, but he DID pay...

Reapublicans are Mainly White? The Horror!

  Funny how certain things will get one (me) thinking. Scary, I know.  Such is the case with someone who recently commented on another post, sanctimoniously proclaiming that the Republican Party is the party of white people.   Yawn.   ...

Excuse, Excuses, Excuses! Part Two.

  Liberals love excuses for failure.  The poor don't have "access" to stuff.  They can't get loans, they can't get ID to vote, they can't, they can't, they can't...  Oh for crying out loud.  To listen to these whiners and apologists, you'd think...

Excuses, Excuses, Excuses.

  That must've been Monique Davis -- state representative from Illinois -- I saw on O'Reilly last night, claiming that she was just repeating what she had heard, that some of her constituents thought the cops were killing these young people in...

Oprah Gets it WRONG!

Some things you just can't make up.  In a recent interview, Oprah bemoans people's lack of knowledge of the Civil Rights movment.  "They don't know diddly-squat.  Diddly-squat."  She also tells the interviewer that she hates the use of the n-word.  "I...
