The Price of Apathy – Part 1

Our Apathy Leads to a Beltway Circus We are seeing a repeat of all the same types of policies from the previous eight years playing out before our eyes. Some intentions are diametrically opposed to those of the previous administration. But the results will be the same or worse.  Apathy is to blame here.  This […]

Outdated!  See updated article here!                       Look at this nasty face bad ass! How would you like to see this guy cry.  I mean blubber like a baby?  Yeah, me too. This is my friend Jeff Kerr. Whenever I see him, there’s a lot of […]

Obamacare: Repeal The Phony Healthcare System

While you’re here, grab my RSS—> See part one here. Why Not Go All The Way? In 2009, while medical costs were up and a recession was getting underway, the government saw another opportunity to do something they’d been dying to do since Truman; a complete takeover of the medical insurance industry. Here’s how the […]

Pansy Rants vs Real Violence

Are These Pansy Rants Supposed To Be Helpful? I have a thousand chores to complete here. I have two posts I promised my friend, Kathleen. I am almost ready to launch my membership writers’ program. And the furniture business is not going to stand itself up. BUT…I saw this post on Facebook the other day […]

Dumping Obamacare: This is not Rocket Science!

While you’re here, grab my RSS—> It’s Also Not Multiple Choice! There is one and only one condition under which the Republicans can save the medical insurance industry and protect citizens from Obamacare.

The Convention of States Movement

Grab my RSS while you’re here —> The Convention of States Movement is now gaining real traction.  I find this exciting for a few reasons, which I’ll discuss below. What is the Convention of States? There is a process, championed by George Mason, inserted into the Constitution whereby citizens, can seek to directly make amendments.  […]

Trump Snarks Media and Fumbles on Flag Burning

Dull-witted Snark as Political Argument Sometimes, an argument is presented so poorly, so devoid of maturity and reason that language fails the respondent. Such is the case with much of what people call “political discussions” on social media. Almost half our population is now witlessly enthralled with monosyllabic populism. And whether right or left, that […]

Keep Calm You Feckin Eejits

Keep calm. Good advice. This title is emblazoned on a tee shirt my wife gave me. It’s a green shirt with a shamrock on it. You get the idea. It is not helpful that we’ve elevated the office of POTUS to the level of royalty. It is not helpful that people who should know better, […]

Greg Gutfeld "stole" my stuff!

Greg Gutfeld has obviously been reading my stuff.  Well, I think he has.  I’ll have to have the Russians hack his computer and get back to me. But tonight, on The Five, GG made a very specific analogy in a very specific way.  I have made many references to the Clintons being like Pigpen from […]

As If Charlotte Cops Had a Choice!

I gleaned two important points from the Charlotte Police Department videos of the Keith Scott shooting. One is that he had a gun. You can’t see it in a video, but we know he had one. Consider: A man exits his car, doesn’t get shot. He gets back in his car and no one shoots […]

An Un-serious Nation Mourns

Any time I see images of the events of 9/11, and certainly at this time of year I am overwhelmed with three emotions; awe at the heroics of those who those walked into the burning towers, deep sorrow for the pain so many families suffered and a deep, burning hatred for the hijackers and anyone […]

Stalinist and Stupid, Part 3: Attacking Reason

Where Reason Goes to Die In final installment of this series we will discuss the perversion of science being proposed by Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, et al. Science is being perverted at expense of all Americans and at the peril of the foundation of all our Constitutional rights. Yes, it is that bad. It is […]

Stalinist and Stupid, Part 1: No Gun For YOU!

In recent days, we have seen stunning attacks on free speech, political activity and due process in this country. There was a time, not too long ago when such attacks would have seemed inconceivable to anyone of any political stripe. To have put forward such ideas would have seemed Stalinist, stupid and embarrassingly immature. But, […]

Classic Rock: Do You Still Believe the S**t We Shoveled?

Have you heard the news and the associated sound tracks in the dispute between Led Zeppelin and the group Spirit? It seems there was a group that toured with LZ back when people believed that rock bands represented something transcendental and non-materialistic (as opposed to the greedy, money-grubbing materialistic reality). This group laid down a […]

What Will Become of the Internet?

Don’t sit on your hands! Bottom line up front (BLUF): I am going to ask you most imperatively to write your congressmen – NOW!  I am also going to ask you to share this on all your social networks. If you already understand what the loss of ICANN means to our freedom of speech and […]

Letter for Your Senators and Reps.

Go to your Senator and your House Rep contact pages. Cut and paste this letter. Dear Senator, If Congress had done its job when this idea was first floated, this letter would not have been necessary. But Congress did not, so as of September 2016, we will lose control of ICANN and the Domain Name […]

DHS and FBI: Partners in Failure

What the Partners Failed to DO Well, almost 15 years after 9/11 national law enforcement and intelligence have still not learned the basic lesson it should not have needed to learn to begin with. No stove piping. On three occasions the FBI had the pleasure of Omar Mateen’s company. It seems this unworthy piece of […]

Indicted? If only it were true!

Below is an interesting article floating around social media. It makes very good points about what BJ Bill’s wife should be facing. Sadly, the headline is somewhat misleading. If it were true – if the Justice Department already knew she was to be indicted – the word would be flooding out from everywhere. I’ll include […]

Climate Hustle: Could Have Been Done Better.

I attended a showing of Climate Hustle on 2 May 16 at the Cinemark 16 in Gulfport. It was very instructive. In terms of content, Marc Morano did a very good job. Using evidence and argument, as opposed to the vitriol and emotionalism exhibited by climate alarmists, the film stepped through the history of the […]

Why We All KNOW Apple is Right!

This call is not even close. Since when can we compel someone to fight crime as opposed to voluntarily getting involved. And how do we require someone to actively do what police should be doing at huge risk to their livelihood? No government has the authority, and before now even Stalinist Russia never served a […]

My Facebook Friends Are Drones. An inner monologue.

Read More
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 […]

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 […]

Toes in the Water

By Street Politics | March 3, 2014

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 […]

The Potential Price of Ego: Geraldo Rivera's Most Idiotic Moment!

By Street Politics | November 15, 2015

Rivera; What a Jackass! I have been watching Geraldo Rivera for decades. While he has ALWAYS been about inserting himself into the story, he has gotten some pretty good “gets” over the years. He’s also occasionally bombed. Still, he is usually interesting regardless of what position you may take on a given subject. But this […]

North Korea: What Does Twitter Say About It?

By Street Politics | July 6, 2017

Do we attack or shake our finger at them REALLY HARD? There is a disturbing meme concerning North Korea crawling into the American consciousness. Depending on what occurs over the ensuing months this meme could be either disappointing to those who believe it or shattering for the entire country. One of the more influential people […]

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 […]

What People Really, Really Want.

By Street Politics | October 13, 2014

Isn’t organized religion a handy contrivance?  There isn’t anything that you can say, not a single phrase you can mutter that can’t be tied into a phrase or idea in any grand holy book.  At the end of this article is a link.  For those entrepreneurs studying for the religion business, this link is a […]
