A History of Nasty
Friday, Oct 28, 2016

Words and visuals would show that the current presidential election is the nastiest ever. It’s a good bet that only a few, if anyone, would disagree with that; however, history gives a glimpse of past sully that was quite eventful for the times.   1800: Jefferson vs. Adams There was inherent tension...

Only in America
Friday, Oct 7, 2016

Much of the following content has been seen in various forms of emails that undoubtedly reached millions of people. The contents of each were billed as “Canada’s Top Ten List of America’s Stupidity.” I don’t know if it’s factually Canada’s claim, but I am sure it rings true with...

Selective Memory
Friday, Sep 30, 2016

Recently, syndicated columnists Cokie and Steve Roberts wrote an eye-catching commentary that attempted to humanize Hillary Clinton. Their story arises from a little-known website called HONY, Humans of New York, wherein Hillary claims when she tested for admittance to Harvard Law School (she graduated...

Decision Fatigue
Friday, Sep 16, 2016

Hillary Clinton’s health is a prominent topic in the news these days. Her supporters are fiercely defensive and malign anyone who questions the true status of her physical fitness. Hillary’s “medical event” at the 9/11 memorial service has caused a lot of commotion. Clinton allies have been steadfast...

Where There’s Smoke
Friday, Aug 26, 2016

Who doesn’t cherish firefighters? It doesn’t matter whether they are from your city, other cities, counties, wherever – we love our firefighters.

Jackpot Jobs
Friday, Aug 19, 2016

The University of California system’s chancellors are dropping like flies. UC Davis Chancellor Linda Katehi “resigned” last week, if you can call it that, and this week it’s UC Berkeley’s Nicholas Dirks. The resignations aren’t really resignations like the peons think of; the chancellors...

‘Retirement’ Rip-Off
Friday, Aug 12, 2016

Schools needing money is an omnipresent topic, and the specific subject of college tuitions has been and is a focus of presidential candidates. On March 18, SCVNews published my commentary titled, “Where College Tuition Goes.” It’s still online to review, but one of the mentions was UC Davis Chancellor...

MSM Spoon Feeding
Friday, Aug 5, 2016

It would be surprising to identify anyone who seriously and honestly believes the mainstream media are not wholly in the bag for Democrats; all of the left, in all degrees. The last three email dumps, ala Hillary, proved more and more classified emails were found, and moreover, ones that would have been...

A Hollow Cry
Friday, Jul 29, 2016

Last week Republicans held their flag-waving convention. This week it’s the Democrats’ turn to cheer their party on. Predictably, there was a lot of sneering critique over the speeches at the Republican convention, and there’s plenty of print and pundits to say so, but as the Democrats’ convention...

Apology Not Accepted
Friday, Jul 8, 2016

Many Americans celebrated the nation’s birthday earlier this week with spectacular cheering, flag waving and exuberant parades; most of all, with pride. It’s uplifting to see people energized. Older people, perhaps past the late 30s range, likely have a different view of the state of America today...
