OMG, They Want to Keep Out Muslims?
Monday, Jan 30, 2017

Well not so much. Yes, the president did launch against Muslims … in 1980. That was President Jimmy Carter. Carter’s attorney general at the time ordered all Iranian students holding a visa to report to immigration officials or face immediate deportation. A federal judge ruled it unconstitutional...

Al Capone for President
Tuesday, Nov 8, 2016

A presidential ticket with Al Capone and Don Corleone could actually happen, based on the current state of moral values in this country. Lying, cheating and lawlessness are just another day in the life of an American politician – and we accept it. We actually accept it. President Obama’s approval...

It’s a Puzzlement
Tuesday, Nov 1, 2016

The problem is not our candidates. The problem is us. Americans. We are little more than a week away from one of the most important and divisive elections in our history. Now, if you are doing everything you can to get informed before you vote, then this isn’t for you. But if you’re a party drone...

Distract, Deny, Lie
Monday, Oct 24, 2016

That interweb is a real problem. Electrons race through the wired and wireless world, leaving evident traces behind. WikiLeaks and social media are making a real mess of our 2016 election cycle. Mind you, it’s a self-inflicted mess, but a mess nonetheless. Because of the interweb, information is instantaneous...

Fantasyland
Tuesday, Oct 4, 2016

We’ve got ‘em. Democrats are like a new puppy peeing all over itself when you first bring it home. They are all excited that Donald Trump used his knowledge of the broken tax system to take legal advantage of the tax code for his business. He claimed he lost more than $900 million in 1995. The dictionary...

Hillary is Diseased
Tuesday, Sep 20, 2016

Let me start off by saying I don’t wish a disease or death on anyone. For those of you who really don’t have a grasp on reality, calling someone out on something doesn’t mean you’re wishing that upon them. Hillary Clinton has all the signs of a “pseudologia fantastica.” For instance, one...

Practicing Jerkism
Tuesday, Aug 30, 2016

This past weekend, I was handed the ultimate gift. A rich, progressive, lefty who hates the rich. It doesn’t get better than this. Thank you, Colin Kaepernick. Colin, the San Francisco 49ers quarterback, exercised his right to free speech last week while being cheered on by the far left when he made...

Don’t Cross the Clintons
Tuesday, Jul 19, 2016

Recently, former U.N. President John Ashe died in an unfortunate gym accident. It seems his windpipe was crushed when he dropped the bar bell he was lifting – alone, with no one else in the room, and without the common sense to have someone watch him. Oh, did I forget to mention he was facing criminal...

Rule Britannia
Tuesday, Jun 28, 2016

The Brits now know what we felt like when we got out from under them. Last week, Great Britain had their own independence day. Only no blood was shed and not a single shot was fired. The people have spoken. My amazement is that so many people on the left are soooooo upset. The people voted and got their...

Wasted Youth
Tuesday, Jun 7, 2016

Have you heard about the implosion of socialism in Venezuela? Or should I say, the blowup of Venezuela because of socialism? Food trucks being hijacked, black market food skyrocketing, a dozen eggs selling for over 100 bucks, toilet paper, milk, and other basic necessities not being provided or even...
