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 […]

I created this ad for a local TV market. To make it go national, I need your help. Please share this on all your social media sites. If it goes viral, we will change the game. Watch it here.

Nino: The Kind-Hearted Communicator

Unlike many “conservatives” I am not a doctrinaire advocate of Antonin Scalia. Unlike constitutional deconstructionists, I don’t chose on whim to disagree with him. More on that in a bit. But we must first recognize the weight of the loss this country faces today. The literary loss easily matches that of Hitchens or Buckley. Scalia […]

You are far more powerful than you may realize!

On the night of the Paris attacks, I posted an article in which I said I never wanted to be the idiot waiting for the shooter to deliver my bullet. None of us need to be that idiot. This is a long-overdue concept. The key is in what the author of the link below calls […]

T'is the Season for Solipsistic Holiday Whining.

Say “Merry Christmas” to me, goddamn it! On which planet is it where we “can’t” or “must” say Merry Christmas? Some people don’t. But that’s certainly none of our business…unless you are a Hillary fan or a PC campus nut job.  They are the type who think they should decide for others what they must […]

Wiggle E. Tooth: A Young Family's Must- Have Book

Rosemary Mele is a devoted mother of teenagers and a productive member of her community. She’s a lady with a good heart and a quirky sense of humor. Until recently, few knew she is also a writer of a children’s book. When her children were young, she used story-telling to help them understand the world […]

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

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 […]

Paris! This is Our Wake Up Call – Again!

BIG Update! I didn’t see this before. It was this paragraph that caught my attention: The brave men and women in our Armed Forces should not be left defenseless against terrorists on American soil. Local commanders now have the authority to allow service men and women to be armed while on base. Members of the […]

For My Fellow Scribblers

Before leaving Virginia, I was a member of several writers’ groups in the area. Sadly, I didn’t have time to attend meetings with all the groups. But I haven’t forgotten about you all. I know many of you are working on your first books or trying to make yourselves visible on google machines. And I […]

Just When You Thought You'd Seen It All…Stupid is Redefined!

TV’s Most Dangerous Night EVER! That’s the tag line for the stupidest thing TV producers have created since Jersey Shore…and it’s aimed at the same audience. I have always tried to avoid being too abrupt discussing religion. I have no attachment to the spirit world, but I know some folks get a little touchy when […]

Is the Bikini the Burka of Western Culture?

NOT SUITABLE FOR WORK BECA– USE YOU AND YOUR COWORKERS PRETEND TO BE OFFENDED BY BODY PARTS WHEN, IN REALITY, YOU’RE NOT. In the civilized West, Americans are hands down the most prudish about the silliest things. It seems hard to believe, but we are so squeamish about the female breast it’s almost embarrassing to […]

2014 – Then This Post – Then 2015

Resolutions I have but one New Year’s resolution: EFFING WRITE MORE!  I have been remiss, especially in the last month or so.   Review 2014 saw the launch of one of the most riveting and influential blogs in all of Thornburg, Va.  This one, Pedestrian Politics and Economics far outstrips the local competing blog Lawnmower Engines […]

What People Really, Really Want.

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 […]

The Weird Shit Humans Do – Part I (Kissing)

The best thing about hosting a political blog is that when I grow weary of covering the political zoo, when I despair of ever finding an actual statesmen in this intellectual wasteland, I can occasionally avert my attention and just have fun.  To wit: Let’s Play Smashy Face! Have you ever sat back and taken […]

Our Tradition

July 1st On our lawn in Thornburg, Virginia. July 4th Same lawn, same flag pole. Every year between July 1st and July 4th, Lyn and I (she is still Canadian and loyal subject of the Crown) stand on the lawn in period costume and beat the tar out of each other.  We call it a […]

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 […]

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

Read More
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 […]

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 […]

Trump Snarks Media and Fumbles on Flag Burning

By Street Politics | December 1, 2016

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 […]

The End of the Trump Presidency

By Street Politics | June 11, 2017

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 […]

DHS and FBI: Partners in Failure

By Street Politics | June 15, 2016

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 […]

A Fun and Easy Lesson: Boris and Ivan

By Street Politics | October 29, 2017

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 […]

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 on unprofessional writers, either out of ignorance or agenda, splashing stupid all over the web. The second is that we, as information consumers, […]

The Convention of States Movement

By Street Politics | January 4, 2017

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.  […]

The Shooting in Alexandria. Dare We Point Fingers?

By Street Politics | June 15, 2017

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 […]
