Hillary for Middle School Class President!

When you start to see things like this, you know two things: 1) A campaign is coming unglued, and 2) no one associated with the candidate or the campaign is qualified to do anything but make mix tapes in their mom’s basement. But in this case the candidate would probably erase the tapes or steal […]

And Still, Some Will Actually Vote for this Cow.

From the author of 16 20 24 I happened across the 2015 National Book Fair on CSPAN yesterday. The two, featured interviews were Tom Brokaw and Evan Thomas. Brokaw was asked about his experience with cancer, and a progression of questions about “The Greatest Generation”, the Vietnam generation, the “boomers” and “millennials”. It was insightful. […]

What Price Treason, Bob?

Sometimes, you can’t outlive being surprised. When Fox news recently discussed the holdouts on the Iran Nuke Sellout, Bob Casey (D-Pa) popped up. My immediate reaction was, “Well, there’s one they won’t get.” But lo and behold, today it was announced that Casey, along with a Delaware idiot signed onto a process that guarantees an […]

Everybody Take a Valium and Breath Slowly.

Since Everyone Else is Already Thinking About '16…

He's going to do it!

I have said here and to friends many times that the only way Obama enacts the policies issued to him by Valerie Jarrett is through authoritarianism.  I also said I suspect the cabal in the White House to be arrogant enough to thwart the election process. Obama has a large ego but it is as […]

I May Be Losing Touch With Reality!

I never thought I’d see the day that I’d miss these two people.  I remember when they did their jobs, I was left thinking that sticking needles in my eyes would be more fun than listening to them.  But I should be more careful for that which I wish. The Previous Migraine The first of […]

Canard of the Week: Charity

If you believe the results of polls, early voting and paperless ballots, one must conclude that at least half of the people in this country love to be lied to. Starting with an April 24, 2015 NYT article by award winning Clinton apologist Paul Krugman where he uses “alleged”a lot with the word “scandal”.  Further, […]
