Help the Poor, END Welfare.

By what objective standard can any reasonable person say that federal welfare programs have worked?  Lost in all of the battling back and forth about entitlements, and who should or shouldn't get what, is the simple question: Has welfare worked?...

Sports Networks Should Stop Hiring Cheaters and Thugs.

This has nothing to do with politics, it's just my way of voicing frustration.  I tune in the World Series pregame show, and who do I see?  Two of the biggest cheaters the game has ever known -- Alex Rodriguez and Pete Rose.  What a wonderful message...

Republicans Grew a Pair.

What's going ON here?  Are these presidential candidates reading my posts?  No, my ego doesn't extend THAT far, but it was refreshing to see some guts on the debate stage the other day, where Cruz and Rubio, in particular, stood up to the idiots at...

Help! Someone's Opinions are making me UNCOMFORTABLE!

In this world, there's stupid, really stupid, and Olympic double-gold medal stupid.  This post is an example of the latter.     A few days ago, students at Williams College, cancelled an appearance by feminist critic Suzanne Venker.  It seems...

After watching Matt Lauer grill Donald Trump on some sort of town hall meeting, or whatever, I decided to go to the way-back machine (AKA Youtube) and see how tough he was on Obama.  With Trump he got on him about falling polll numbers in Iowa, an...

Thoughts about the Benghazi Hearings.

Trump Just Keeps Going and Going ...

Marilyn Monroe once posed nude for a calendar, before she became a star.  Most people of a certain age, or just plain fans, know this, and it's no big deal.  But back in the early 50's, posing nude was quite the no-no.  So when word got out about...

Hillary, Queen of Stupid Stuff.

In a scene from an episode of The Big Bang Theory, Penny and Sheldon are in a jewelry store looking for a gift for Sheldon's girl friend, Amy.  Seems that Sheldon is trying to make up for ignoring Ame's accomplishment in being published in a major...

The Donald and the Benald, Standing Up to the Media.

Sometimes -- and not often -- something happens in politics that makes you (or at least moi) smile.  That's the case with Donald Trump and Ben Carson threatening to boycott the upcoming CNBC debate, if the network decides to expand the debate to three...

It's Official: Dems are Socialists.

Everrrryyyyboddddyyyy wants to talk about how Hillary is falling in the polls.  But nooooobodddyyyyy seems to notice Bernie Sanders all that much.  The guy is a self-confessed socialist, and that seems to bother no one, especially Democrats.  When...
