Idiots are People, too.

People are idiots. That's what part of me says. Over the years, I've learned that we all have "parts." Rarely is anyone all of one thing. An extrovert might be an introvert in certain situations, and an introvert might be a dynamo on stage, or singing...

Black America's Frustrating Allegiance to Liberalism.

What do African Americans, Latinos, and Jews have in common? All have suffered under the Obama administration, and all have supported him in 2012. In the case of Jewish Americans, their suffering is not particularly economic, but considering that...

Folly-la-la-la-la-la-la-la.

This is the time of year to stop and remember those that risk all, with no thought of personal safety, to preserve the American dream. Three cheers for Walmart shoppers!   There is no way I enter any store on "Black Friday." I'd rather come into...

If.

If. Is there a two-letter word more frustrating? If you haven't played the "if" game with yourself, you're unique -- and maybe a little lucky. You never wondered what would've happened "if" you hadn't broken up with someone? What if you had chosen a...

Trashing Capitalism.

I recently ran across a Phil Donahue interview from the 1970's, with the late Nobel Prize winning economist Milton Friedman. In it, Donahue asked Friedman about the greed in the world, and how the wealth is distributed. Friedman just smiled and asked...

The "Fair Shar" Nonsense.

When politicians point their collective finger at "the rich," and complain that they're not paying their "fair share," that automatically puts the rich on the defensive, along with those who believe in capitalism and small government. Exactly what is...

Forget "Security" Give us Freedom!

I recently finished Ken Follett's "Winter of the World," the second book in his Century Trilogy. The novel covers the lives of different families during the 1930's through the end of World War II. Excellent read. In it there's a character, Erik, from...

Thomas Sowell Rules!

Of all of the conservative writers out there, Thomas Sowell is by far, my favorite. He's that rare individual with whom I virtually never disagree. He is a writer who can, through the force of his reasoning, convert someone from a liberal to a...

Return to Spender.

There's an old joke about a depressed man who walks into a psychiatrist office. The doctor asks him what's wrong. The man proceeds to tell of his life. He lives in a mansion, drives a Rolls Royce, vacations at the French Riviera, has ten servants, and...

Commulibs and Libunists.

I have mentioned before that I used to be a liberal. It was just part of my upbringing. Not so much being liberal, but being a Democrat. There used to be a difference. In the 1950's and early 1960's, Democrats actually did pay attention to spending....

Will Republicans Ever Fight Back?

Before the hurricane, Romney had a decent lead. By the time it had done its damage, and Obama got to play at looking presidential, that lead evaporated. The rest is history. It wasn't "demographics" that won the president reelection, it was...

General Excuses for Bad Behavior.

So, General Petraeus is leaving the CIA because of his decision to work, uh, undercover. (Hey, I figured it was best to get that one out of the way so we can move on.)   I'm not even going to get into the political implications involving...

"Objective" Voting.

Virtually everyone has the capacity for reason, but not necessarily the inclination. Whether we admit it or not, so much of what we do is hardly well thought out. For example, yesterday I ordered a pizza to be delivered. Now, a Dominos pizza with...

Obama's Perfect Storm.

Timing is everything, they say. In the end, that's why Barack Obama won reelection. Truth is, if the election had been held ten days earlier, the result would've been different. Woulda, coulda, shoulda. Much is being made of the "new demographics,"...

Now What?

I'll try and keep this short, but who knows. First off, I apologize to anyone who got optimistic because of what I wrote. I gave my best interpretation of the data out there. People smarter than me are wondering what the heck happened. All info...
