Defending capitalism and the 1%

Posted: January 21, 2012 at 3:30 pm   /   Politics

Back in Early December, Bradley Schiller wrote an op-ed in the LA Times in which he pointed out a simple fact: “Occupy Wall Street has said it’s the 99% of ‘us’ against the 1% of ‘them.’ But many of ‘them’ started out like ‘us’ and have brought us great innovations that we embrace.” The late Steve […]

Dingbats in the News

Posted: January 16, 2012 at 3:25 pm   /   Politics

After dismissing the importance of the Bilderberg Group, the Tri-Lateral Commission and the Council on Foreign Relations, in a recent article, I knew I would hear from those people who check under their beds every night to make certain that Henry Kissinger isn’t lurking under the box springs.  I only wish I could predict Kentucky […]

Who’s Afraid of the Big Bad Bilderberg?

Posted: January 11, 2012 at 2:00 pm   /   Politics

It seems that whenever I point out that a true conservative is not ever likely to win the presidency in a country that is only slightly right of the middle, I can count on hearing from people who regard RINOs as worse than Obama, worse than Pelosi, Reid and Waxman, and even worse than jihadists.

Buddy Roemer now on verge of 2 – 1 % defeat of Rick Perry Former Louisiana Gov. Buddy Roemer has been excluded from all of the GOP debates, yet is still polling ahead of one former top-tier contender: “We’re ahead of Rick Perry in the polls,” Roemer said. “He spent $20 million.

The 1960s Live Again

Posted: January 4, 2012 at 1:00 pm   /   Politics

I have long insisted that the decline of America began roughly 50 years ago.  That was the decade that saw the liberals take a hacksaw to the black family, as LBJ and thousands of social workers did everything they could to drive black husbands and fathers out of the household.  It also saw the advent […]

Occupiers still at it

Posted: January 2, 2012 at 10:55 am   /   Politics

They may have faded from above-the-fold headlines, but the anti-capitalist mob known as Occupy Wall Street (or Occupy wherever) is still committing crimes. Sixty eight “protesters” (read “rioters”) were arrested as they tore down the barricades surrounding New York City’s Zuccotti Park just before midnight on New Year’s Eve. At least one person was accused […]

Reading Political Tea Leaves

Posted: December 31, 2011 at 1:15 pm   /   Politics

When I see all the infighting taking place in the ranks of the GOP, I find myself hoping that by the time we finally get through the primaries and nominate a candidate, hard feelings will have subsided and we’ll all be able to support the last person standing.  After all, the most important consideration isn’t […]

I Am Not, Thank God, George Soros

Posted: December 29, 2011 at 2:04 pm   /   Politics

It would appear that the DNC has me confused with George Soros.  I don’t know why this would be.  For one thing, he was born in Hungary and I was born in Chicago, so we sound nothing alike.  For another thing, he has a full head of hair and I only have a cute little […]

Ah, Sweet Mysteries of Life

Posted: December 28, 2011 at 3:20 pm   /   Politics

There are a number of questions I keep waiting to have answered, and I am getting doggone impatient.  For instance, is Barack Obama’s mother-in-law still living in the White House?  If she’s living there rent-free and dining on our dime, why do we never see her?  They sure made a big deal about it when […]
