It’s Still Taxifornia
Friday, Jun 15, 2018

There are a lot of exhibits to hold up and show the failures of California, but one item that the dominant Left never fails at is making sure the state lives up to its alter-ego of Taxifornia. It’s nearly useless to remind taxpaying citizens that Jerry Brown promised no new taxes without voter...

Crazy Train Gets Crazier
Friday, Mar 16, 2018

It’s hard to believe we’ve been haunted by Jerry Brown’s “Unicorn Legacy of the Bullet Train” for 10 long years. In keeping with Brown’s typical fairy-tale wishes, this toy had no reasonable plan, or candor, in mind as to practicalities in building it or in operating it. The only concrete...

Campus Nonsense
Friday, Feb 2, 2018

Is it time to give students and teachers what they want? That would be the total freedom on school campuses they demand, irrespective of safety. Would it reduce taxpayers’ expenses? For some history, the Los Angeles School Police Department was established in 1948. In 2016, laschoolreport.com reported...

Running the Asylum
Friday, Nov 3, 2017

The NFL’s Houston Texan players are upset with the words of their owner, Bob McNair, who said, “We can’t have the inmates running the prison.” He made the comment after the recent meeting of NFL owners over the whole debacle of players kneeling for the national anthem before games. Reasonable...

Taking a Knee
Friday, Sep 29, 2017

The latest theme: “Take a knee.” The NFL may highly regret ever hearing that term. Colin Kaepernick stood out in college football enough to get to the pros and was hot for a bit, but it was a level of playing he could not sustain. Although the San Francisco ‘49ers had inked a “record” 7-year...

Friends, Enemies
Thursday, Aug 24, 2017

It’s been said you can tell a lot about a man by his friends and the company he keeps. There’s also a school of thought that you can tell a man by who his enemies are. No doubt, all of those apply to Donald Trump, as we are reminded constantly by the media in one form or another. Recently a name...

Bipartisanship Today
Friday, Aug 11, 2017

Glancing at an overview of the past year and certainly since Jan. 20, I have to disagree that there is no bipartisanship in America today. There indeed is, and it’s called anti-Trumpism. There is no doubt the vast majority of Democrats and liberals loathe Trump. Certainly all of the leftists thoroughly...

Calling the Kettle Black
Tuesday, Jul 4, 2017

Some in the Obama administration knew of Russian attempts to meddle in the 2016 U.S. presidential election in early 2016. “Some” did not include Jeh Johnson, Obama’s hand-picked head of Homeland Security. Interestingly, Johnson recently testified before the House Intelligence Committee that...

Dangerous Rhetoric
Thursday, Jun 29, 2017

Two weeks ago I wrote a commentary addressing hate speech and the attempted murder of U.S. Rep. Steve Scalise. The content gave several examples of the undeniably and perilously provocative words and fear-mongering from celebrities and politicians who are in overdrive since Trump’s inauguration. The...

Words Have Meaning
Friday, Jun 16, 2017

Madonna, Jan. 21, 2017, at an open rally with a microphone: “Yes, I have thought a lot about blowing up the White House.” Bernie Sanders, March 2017: If the AHCA passes as the new healthcare bill, “millions … will not be able to get to a doctor … thousands of Americans will die.” Vox...
