Predicting Iowa.

Just for the fun of it, I'm going to try my hand at predicting the Iowa caucus that takes place in four days. I see the polls, listen to the prognosticators, and have been paying attention. Why can't I be a pundit? All you need is an attitude and a...

Obama: Just a Trillion! I'll Pay You Back! Promise!

I see that Obama is asking permission to borrow $1,200,000,000,000. That's a tad over a TRILLION. Is anyone surprised he's doing this? Me, neither. On the other hand, it does take me back to my youth. Whenever I needed cash, I'd go to mom -- always...

Ebenezer, You Lovable Geezer!

  I confess that I have a certain soft spot in my heart for Ebenezer Scrooge. Yeah, he was an old grouch, but you'd be grouchy, too, if your dead friends rattled chains and kept YOU up all night! Christmas past, Christmas present, Christmas...

Tim Tebow: Designated Martyr.

What is the problem some people have with Tim Tebow? An article in a Jewish publication warns of burning mosques, bashing gays, and indiscriminately banishing immigrants" if Tebow continues to be successful. Radio "host" Bill press told his herd,...

Government: How Big SHOULD it Get?

  How big should government be? It's a simple question, but when was the last time you heard it asked in the so-called "political arena?" Everyone, except anarchists acknowledge the necessity of government. After that, it's just a matter of its...

Time to Go, Mr. O.

  Obama supporters have a screw loose. I've never said or thought such a thing about supporters of any candidate of any party. I doubt I ever will in the future. Why? It's because Obama's black. Okay, that's not it, but it ticks liberals off,...

Snooty Celebs.

By now, I'm sure most people have heard of actor Alec Baldwin getting tossed off an American Airlines flight. It seems Mr. B didn't want to turn off his electronic toy, after being told to do so by a flight attendant. He refused, so someone --...

The Gingrich-Romney Cage Match.

  One reason I don't believe in psychics, is that they never predict anything unique that comes true. Oh, we'll hear AFTER the fact that so-and-so predicted the Kennedy assassination, or solved a crime for the police; but I've never heard one...
