Ayers, Obama, and Dohrn -- Oh MY!

It's conspiracy time and I'm a lovin' it!  No editor to tell me what to write about, so why not?  I got to thinking about Obama and Ayers again, when I read that once more, there's speculation that Bill Ayers wrote Obama's book, "Dreams from my...

Hugs for Thugs.

For the second time, in recent days, I heard an excuse for the black youths playing the "knockout game," where the idea is to go up to a stranger and knock him or her out with one blow.  Old women, young men, it's not important, just knock someone...

Republican Idiots.

Did I miss something?  Does the Tea Party have votes in the Senate and House?  Do they nominate presidential and Congressional candidates?  Can a single member of this national group get up and filibuster bills?  NOOOOOO!  So why do we constantly hear...

I Remember Kennedy.

I recall a lot stuff over the years, but from childhood until, say, high school graduation, three stand out: Elvis on the Ed Sullivan Show, The Beatles on the Ed Sullivan Show, and the Kennedy assassination.  I probably should include Martin Luther...

Sylvia Brown, Phony Psychics, and Stuff.

I'm warning you right now, that you might very well find this post pretty boring, because it's about psychics and pseudoscience.  I never get much response when I post about this, but that's fine.  A recent event is the reason I'm posting about it,...

Lame Arguments From a Lame Duck.

"One of the problems we've had is one side of Capitol Hill is invested in failure." -- Barack Obama   It doesn't get much more pathetic than this, with Obama blaming the "rockier roll out" on Republicans. Forget politics just for a second (we'll...

Penn Jillette and Freedom.

Penn Jillette is one of my personal heroes.  You probably know him as half of Penn and Teller, the somewhat offbeat magic act -- although I don't know if "magic" is the best term -- that has been popular at the Rio, for a while now.  Anyway, Penn is a...

The myth of "Underrepresentation."

Life is not fair.  At last, something we all can agree on.  Of course, some think of "fair" as meaning the same as "just."  Last week, some liberal pundit, forget his name, said that women were "underrepresented" in political office.  How come?  Is...

Forced Sharing.

The "pundits" are wondering if enough young people will sign up to make Obamacare work.  They point out that the sick will sign up, but the young people, who will live forever -- just ask 'em -- won't.  Now, that's all fine and dandy to speculate...

Slam, Bam, Thank You Imam.

I meant to comment on this before, but there's so much going on, and sometimes it's hard to keep up with "stupid."  Anyway, the Muslim students at Washington University have their sensitivities in a bunch, over the frat boys who dressed up on...

Is Hillary a Big Deal?

There are public figures and celebs that I just don't "get" their popularity.  Will Farrell and Chris Rock come to mind.  Yes, they have talent, but they don't do much for me.  I don't understand why they're such a big deal.  To each his own, I guess....

Liberalism's Stranglehold on "Cool."

If conservatives ever figure out a way to make their point of view "cool," Democrats will never win another presidential election.  Forget all the talk about political strategies, and how one party can maneuver to stick it to the other party....

Poker, and Making Informed Decisions.

The World Series of Poker crowned a new winner, Tuesday, Ryan Reese, a twenty-three year old from my home state of Michigan.  He took home over $8,000,000, and a bracelet worth over a half million dollars.  Second place finisher, Jay Farber, a...

Obama: Just Another Blowhard Pol.

I guess people have short memories.  It wasn't that long ago that candidate Barack Obama was touted as the "new" type of politico.  He's sooooo different.  He's honest, a straight-shooter, no nonsense, doesn't suck up to lobbyists or donors.  And by...

Our Religious President -- He Thinks He's GOD!

  I was rereading today, a 2004 interview by a religion reporter, with then U.S. Senate nominee Barack Obama.  Very revealing. Let me give you a quote or two:  "I'm always struck by how much common sense the American people have.  They get confused...

The Pathetic "Arguments" for Obamacare.

  Representative Frank Pallone (D-NJ) said something the other day, to Megyn Kelly on Fox, that is close to the top of the dumbest things I've ever heard by a politician.  Responding to people losing their health insurance, he said: "The bottom...
