Why Everyone is Wrong About the NFL "Protests".

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"

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 […]

A Fun and Easy Lesson: Boris and Ivan

I was told this story by an economist. He said an economist is a CPA without the bubbly personality. For the life of me I cannot recall his name. Boris and Ivan Boris and Ivan were goat herders in pre-communist Russia.   They lived on neighboring farms, raised their little herds and sold goat milk. Goat […]

Smirky Head Shakers II

Those TV and movie moments that make normal people smirk and shake their heads. I was at a doctor’s office waiting for my wife last week, watching a Biloxi news show. I had to cringe. This is why local news is seen as the kindergarten of the news media industry. The anchorwoman was discussing child […]

Pay Attention!

I am supposed to be doing homework for a special project. But I if I didn’t get this out, my head will explode. Everybody is getting their noses out of joint about the NFL and Donald Trump being his regular, inarticulate, nonsensical self.  I sure as hell said my piece about it.  But as a […]

The NFL. Children. Ignorant, Petulant and Overpaid

I’ll put the Bottom Line Up Front (BLUF as my old boss used to call it). The playing of the National Anthem at sporting events has always been for one and only one purpose. It was a way of saying, in a feel-good way that we are all in this together. The Baptist in section […]

Modern Fallacies of "Race" and "Heritage"

This is addressed to a small, but growing subset of our population. In the following paragraphs, I will state several facts.  They won’t be arguable. Every literate person who reads these facts will know they are true.  But these facts will tug at the silly emotionalism too many have chosen to cloak their lives in.  […]

A Pox On All Your Damn Houses!

I’ve been looking at video of the Charlottesville riot and trying to piece it together for myself, unlike 90% of the people out there on all sides of the issue. I still have a long way to go. But here is what I’ve gathered so far, along with a few questions that have not been […]

Smirky Head Shakers

Those TV and Movie moments that make normal people smirk and shake their heads.  Zips?  Really? I imagine, if anyone was paying attention to Media Buzz on Sunday, 6 August, that FOX News got some pretty fiery emails.  We’re not talking about a super high-rated news show here.  I imagine only news and political geeks […]

"Founded By Slaveholders", A Non-thinker's Argument

Founded by Slaveholders! There is a popular admonition floating around about our nation’s founding. It is intended to cause deep soul searching or inflict discomfort and shame in the American listener. A reasonable listener could be excused, with reasonable provenance, for reaching a different conclusion about the admonition and the purveyors of it. I would […]

THE INTERNAL REVENUE SERVICE – Criminal Mob

And this is just one of countless cases! The Internal Revenue Service of the United States, through onerous and thuggish actions, has marked itself as an unapologetic criminal enterprise. Ever since the Obama Administration, without a blush of irony or shame, turned this organization loose on the American people for political protection, an atmosphere of […]

North Korea: What Does Twitter Say About It?

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 […]

The Shooting in Alexandria. Dare We Point Fingers?

There’s been a lot of hand wringing over the last 24 hours about how we must come together and not point fingers of blame about the shooting in Alexandria. Basically, I agree with that statement. But fingers are being pointed anyway. So if we must assign blame, or at least accuse others of inspiring this […]

The End of the Trump Presidency

As of Thursday, 8 June 2017, the Trump Presidency has reached a point where it has no allies. Well before this, Ryan and McConnell had alternately duped Trump into backing stupid ideas (Ryancare) by stroking his ego, or turned their backs on his agenda (taxes and infrastructure). Now they have the cover they need to […]

How Do We Measure Up This Memorial Day?

Memorial Day, 2017 I was at Legion Post 1992, Gautier-Vancleave, waiting for our annual Memorial Day observance to begin. I picked up a program and read the following words. Dear Lord, Lest I continue My complacent way, Help me remember that somewhere, Somehow out there A man died for me today.  As long as there […]

Universal Welfare: Is Zuck Actually Evil?

Universal Welfare? Say It Ain’t So! My knee-jerk reaction to Zuckerburg’s speech was shock at the naivete on display.  Sure, he made a lot of money when he was too young for the responsibility.  But by now you would think he’d matured at least a little. But a talking head on FOX Business turned me […]

How Worthless is a Harvard Education

For our first Whoopee Cushion Butt Salute I pulled this piece from commencement season 2017.  It is part one of two.  Enjoy! Lunacy at Harvard In his address at Cambridge, Mark Zuckerburg, (CEO Facebook) called for a universal wage.  He likened it to a “cushion” for people lesser than himself.  There are so many things […]

Zuckerburg’s Lunacy: Wake Up (part 1)

Mark Zuckerburg should stick to restricting the reach of peoples’ posts on Facebook.  It’s what he is good at. A long time ago I started talking about the price of apathy. I said that while it is understandable to want to throw your hands up in disgust or just roll with whatever the TV talking […]

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 […]

Kamala Harris? Historical? I didn’t get the memo.

By Street Politics | August 19, 2020

In what way is Kamala Harris a(n) historical figure?  I didn’t get the memo. Oh, but MJ, you may whine, Kamala is the first woman of color (no one seems to know exactly what color) to be a candidate for Vice President! So? Why should I be impressed? We’ve already had a black president.  We’ve […]

Mask Hysteria: Moving the Goal Posts

By Street Politics | August 10, 2020

It would be swell if the politicians would stop moving the goal posts.  But they can’t.  They haven’t gotten Trump out of office yet.  And Congress keeps announcing more and more money is to be doled out.  So, too bad for you.  We need to keep everything screwed up at least through November. Part 7 […]

Mask Hysteria: Celebrity Trumps Science

By Street Politics | August 10, 2020

In the previous segment we were getting into the mask, celebrity and more phony “science”. Part 6 Then you have people who wear a mask the way my brother (a medical professional) does.  They wear them loose or under the nose. The masks are constantly falling down. So the wearer is constantly fidgeting with the […]

Mask Hysteria: The New Burka

By Street Politics | August 10, 2020

Read Part 4 here. I was hinting that there might be some comfort and encouragement in the realities of COVID-19. Part 5 But, no! You are not to be permitted comfort. If anyone within 100 miles has COVID you must live like a neurotic germaphobe. We must create the same or greater level of distress […]

Mask Hysteria: Politicians and Moral Hazard

By Street Politics | August 10, 2020

Read Part 3 here Moral Hazard is where you incentivize people with the means to do the wrong thing with the rewards for doing it. Politic1ans will always choose the easier, less moral path.  That’s what I meant by politics and money earlier. Bigger COVID numbers mean more money and a chance to beat up […]

Mask Hysteria: Why the “science” is invalid.

By Street Politics | August 10, 2020

I was just getting to why the “science” is invalid.  It’s about methods.  If the methods are not valid, there is NO SCIENCE. Part 3 All the government intrusion, the destruction of the economy, the endless propaganda, has been based on “science”. Really? The numbers cited to justify all this are totally invalid. I didn’t […]

Mask Hysteria: Everything You’ve Been Told Is Invalid! (In many parts)

By Street Politics | August 10, 2020

Part 1 Whenever someone questions the infallible wisdom of masks and shutdowns the speaker is inevitably accused of not following the science or being (get this) selfish. Here’s the painful truth: Since Trump first spoke of containment (and Pelosi was still telling everyone to party in Chinatown and De Blasio was still telling everyone to […]

Irrational Panic

By Street Politics | May 20, 2020

“Irrational Panic” is actually an older article.  I have been wrestling with my website for a few days. How do you create irrational panic? Simple. You employ irrational propaganda. I’ll begin with a statement that will be most ignored. I know COVID-19 is a real illness and that for some people it can be deadly. […]

Why the Swedes are doing better than we are?

By Street Politics | May 20, 2020

Because of a fully indoctrinated mindset, many knuckleheads will respond to this article by saying, “You just want people to DIE!” Ironically, it is probably these very same people who need to take what I say for action. Question 1: How is Sweden doing these days vis-a-vis the ChiComm virus? Answer: Quite well, actually. They […]
