Living on a River

A post moved from my other blog. I moved this one here because the wusssies that run my other blog felt it was too commercialized for their taste.  Meanwhile they provide all manner of ways to monitize your blog site as it grows.  If I wasn’t so heavily published there, I’d start a new one […]

See?!?! This is Why I Can't Have Nice Things!

It’s been reported that there is, yet again, an activity and some tools that people are employing for pleasure which have the added benefit of helping them end an unhealthy relationship with something harmful.  And here’s the worst part; they are doing it on their own without supervision and taxation, beyond sales tax, of the […]

Toes in the Water

3 Mar 14 I have been reading The Economist quite a bit lately.  One might think with a name like that you’d find clear-eyed, conservative content; not at all.  It is a product from across the pond and is chock full of some of the most well-worn liberal drivel in print.  Last year they ran […]

Caveats for the NOW…and the Chinese Crud.

They say if you live long enough you get to see everything. Well, this Xi TB event has brought about some really mind-blowing revelations about just how stupid people can be. I’m not talking about you [looking askance]. You’re here with me right now so you are brilliant. But just in case you might be […]

HOUSTON ROCKETS – POLITICAL PIGGIES.

By Street Politics | October 9, 2019

Houston Rockets GM Apologizes for Being Right! Just When You Think You’ve Seen It All… Have you read Animal Farm yet? You should. If it’s been a while, reread it and think of today. But while saying that, I will throw out a spoiler at the same time. The pigs in the story are socialist […]

The United States on the World Stage: Slow-Motion Train Wreck

By Street Politics | October 8, 2019

7 October 2019 The Slow-Motion Train Wreck. Today’s foreign affairs headline reflects, in microcosm, our status as the “world super power.” We are no longer that, of course. We are an international train wreck. Specifically, what your are about to read is why I put chapter 16 in Street Politics: It Ain’t Your Daddy’s GOP […]

Don’t Be A Political Pansy…on Election Day.

By Street Politics | November 4, 2018

The tag line I use to promote my book is “Don’t be a Political Pansy!” That is tongue-in-cheek advertising, and as much a joke as it is a challenge. But there really is a breed of political pansy out there. I normally serve up red meat on this site. There is so much we can […]

Ford vs Kavanaugh: #I Don’t Believe Her!

By Street Politics | September 18, 2018

When you don’t have an argument… …have a contrived scandal in your pocket ready to spring on your opponent.  There is no honor in it, but you might just get the worthless win anyway.  When you are without scruples taking the highroad has no appeal. Bottom Line Up Front. I have looked at the Ford […]

Vanity Fair Ought To Be More Careful

By Street Politics | August 26, 2018

One of my future books is going to deal with just how wrong so many people can be about so many things. The reasons for such wrong-headedness are simple: One is immature or unprofessional writers, either out of ignorance or agenda, splashing stupid all over the web. The second is that we, as information consumers, […]

My Facebook Friends Are Drones. An inner monologue.

By Street Politics | June 21, 2018

We are indeed a lovely lot of mindless drones. The state of our nation is in free-fall. This is the product of our own numb skulls.  Thank you Facebook! It would be one thing to say that we had no choice in the matter. Perhaps an evil government entity snuck some hypnotic substance into our […]

Sexual Counterfeiters

By Street Politics | January 5, 2018

I wrote this before leaving town for the holidays.  But check out the update at the end.  I love being right! Let’s pretend we’re Puritans and we’re irreparably offended by Roy Moore, et al! A good holiday read this year might be The Crucible: A play in four acts by Arthur Miller. Yes, the original […]

Why Everyone is Wrong About the NFL "Protests".

By Street Politics | November 7, 2017

This whole taking a knee stunt has more than worn out its welcome.  From the start it was missing the point of the playing of the National Anthem to begin with.  But so was almost all of the reaction to it. First let’s clarify what the “protest” has been from the beginning.  It was a […]

Why Everyone Is Wrong About "Tax Reform"

By Street Politics | November 7, 2017

So, What’s Wrong With “Tax Reform”? I’ll start with this little hint:  What we are seeing debated right now in the abortion we call Congress is not tax reform.  It isn’t even a significant tax reduction.  Okay, so that was more than a hint. Take a gander at my piece about Boris and Ivan.  When […]
