Fiscal Cliff Notes; New Year's Eve.

Lately I've been reading about Obama being compared with Lincoln, and this "fiscal cliff" is his "Lincoln moment." Really? I never thought of him as a Lincoln. More like a Yugo. Will this cliff be avoided? I really don't know, but I seriously doubt...

On Comparisons, Context, and Dorky Arguments.

Without even realizing it, so many decisions and judgments that we make, are based on comparisons. Life is nothing, if not context. How was that hamburger you had at the last restaurant you ate at? Good? Not so good? Unless it's the first one you've...

Playing the Political "Extreme" Card.

Of all the labels the media and the left (sorry to repeat myself) have hung on those right of center, the most laughable is "extreme." I don't know if these people actually mean it, or if they're really, really good actors, because they say it with a...

Conservative Hypocrites.

Liberal, conservative, moderate. These are relative terms that people use as a sort of rule-of-thumb way to categorize others or even themselves. That's fine. I think of myself as a "classical liberal," but "conservative" seems to be the current...

The Evil Profit Mongers! Hooray!

My newspaper is flush with ads for after Christmas sales. The "all-powerful" business community is practically begging me to buy something from them. This is an aspect of commerce that is too often ignored. For all of the so-called power these...

Economic Myths to Stuff in Your Christmas Stocking.

Smart people can believe things that aren't true. About a hundred years ago, a lot of "smart" people thought you could tell a lot about someone by the bumps on his head. Hitler's racial superiority theories undoubtedly sprang from the accepted...

Appreciating the Fruits of the Free Market.

What do automobiles, cell phones, flat screen TVs, and computers all have in common? Probably a lot, to those with imagination. I'm thinking, though, their common bond is that at one time, all were too expensive for the average person to own. At the...

End of World Today. Pack a Toothbrush.

If, indeed, today is the end of the world, then I guess it would be the ultimate "I told you so!" moment. That is, if there's time to actually say it. If it all ends in a blinding flash, then there won't be any time for anyone to rub it in. Hardly...

Looking Back to the "Good Old Days."

There's really not all that much I'm sure of in life, but one thing is certain, and universal: No one, but NO one, has more fun than kids. You can be a multi-millionaire with all of the toys that go with it, but you still won't have as much fun as...

America Has Changed.

The recent unspeakable tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut, has me thinking about how America has changed over my many years. Forgotten in the debate about guns, is an important fact that is central: People are different. Our culture is different, our...

Keep Guns, Ban Liberals.

"Tragedy Revives Gun Control Debate," reads one headline. The lamestream media strikes again! Whenever some piece of scum kills, the media tell us people are demanding more gun control, and "questions arise," in regard to how much control is needed,...

Is RG3 REALLY Black?

My award for racist of the year goes to Rob Parker. Check this out these idiotic remarks he made on ESPN the other day, about Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III (RG3): "Is he a brother, or is he a cornball brother?" AND: "He's kind of...

'tis the Season to be SPENDING!

I'm sorry, but I LOVE the commercialization aspect of Christmas. I love the peace on Earth, good will to men stuff, too. Best of all, when it comes to those sentiments, batteries are not required. I don't see a conflict between love and...

More Yammerings about Obama's Past. Cuz I can.

Do you think a candidate running for a presidential nomination, for either party, could get nominated and elected if news got out that he/she once was friends and worked with a neo Nazi, or a skinhead? If the fascist in question had planted bombs in...

This Administration is HILARIOUS!

Why bother watching sitcoms and standup comics on the tube, when we have an administration run by the biggest clown in D.C.? Of course, real clowns are trying to be funny, while Obama, Reid, Pelosi, and the rest of the Democratic Greek chorus, are...

Bleep the Poor.

I guess December is the perfect month for me to vent my inner Scrooge. So, yeah, bleep the poor! Absolutely. As a political group, that is. If the rich are greedy, then the poor are just plain whiny. Not all, of course, but way too many. Years ago,...

YAAAYYY Rich People!

When those on the left wring their hands, and complain about the rich not paying their "fair share," what they really mean is that the rich HAVE TOO MUCH, and others do not have ENOUGH. The implication is that the rich guys got that way by taking from...
