General Commentary

It’s a question of the GOP and their testicles.

If the GOP establishment could find one brain cell and one gonad among themselves, this woman would be the party poster child by tomorrow. The party tends to miss so many opportunities. I an effort to appear clever and sophisticated they usually end up as neither and miss the down-to-earth goldmines all around them. Kim […]

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

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

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

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

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

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.

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)

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

“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?

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 […]

Are We at WAR? Then Develop Some COURAGE!

How in the name of all that’s holy (if you go in for that sort of thing) did we become the people we now are?  We’ve become so gullible, malleable.  How does a people win a war when these are the qualities of the soldier? The Fronts In this war there are  5 basic fronts.  […]

Are we at War? Then FIGHT!

In his inaugural address, FDR bellowed the phrase, “…the only thing we have to fear is fear itself!” Viewed critically, it was a nonsensical utterance. But everyone knew what he meant so it went over well. And there was validity in the point.  Sadly, Roosevelt would spent the next 9 years exploiting that same fear […]

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.

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

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.

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!

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

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.

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

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 […]

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 […]

Smirky Head Shakers II

By Street Politics | October 29, 2017

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!

By Street Politics | September 26, 2017

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

By Street Politics | September 26, 2017

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"

By Street Politics | September 16, 2017

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!

By Street Politics | August 14, 2017

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

By Street Politics | August 14, 2017

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

By Street Politics | August 8, 2017

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 […]
