State of Delusion
Monday, Jan 18, 2016

Unfortunately, I couldn’t listen to the State of the Union speech live, because my national radio show (self-plug there) started when he did. I did, however, go back and listen several times – I couldn’t believe what I was hearing – and found little truth or fact in his speech. At times,...

Obama Does Not Care
Friday, Dec 18, 2015

Appearances are that most rational Americans are past asking questions like “where’s the outrage?” and “what will it take?” I’ve been open about not being a fan of Donald Trump, but his continuance to amass a flock is no mystery, considering the acts of – or more accurately, the non-acts...

ISIS is Contained – In Paris
Monday, Nov 23, 2015

President Obama gives a whole new meaning to “altered reality.” The French president called it the first year President Obama was in office. After they met, he alluded to the fact that Obama might have some real character flaws. His actions protecting America (or not) throughout his terms in office...

Mr. President, please return from Oz, or Mars, or wherever your mind is currently. Really successful people surround themselves with people of knowledge. They don’t do it to spend hordes of money.

Obama said… “From the rocky coast of Maine to the sunshine of California, we are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America…” Who knew the gravity of what he was saying? Of what he meant? Forget, for the moment, all of the in-your-face-policies this president...

Lone Gunman?
Tuesday, Jul 21, 2015

We lost five of our finest last week. Five young men who served our country. Three came back from tours overseas and continued their service, encouraging others to do the same. I have spoken to many of these young men and women, asking them why they serve. Why put your life on the line for a cause they...

Baghdad ‘Bama
Monday, May 11, 2015

Yes, we have Baghdad ‘Bama and his trusty sidekick John Kerry. As national and satellite pictures were showing American troops taking over Baghdad airport and moving toward the city, Baghdad Bob proclaims, “There are no American infidels in Baghdad. Never” on live TV … as you can hear the shells...

Hope and Change
Friday, May 1, 2015

This week Loretta Lynch was sworn in as Attorney General of the United States, replacing Eric Holder. Let’s hope for change, and for America’s sake, the replacement is a huge upgrade. Holder’s service was a dangerous and troublesome threat to the whole of America. No doubt Lynch holds many of the...

Paid Volunteer?
Monday, Apr 20, 2015

Equal pay starts at home – at least that is what his Highness King Oblamo thinks. In a speech last week, the guy who claims he knows the Constitution, knows what the people want and, well, just plain knows everything, hasn’t figured out that we didn’t elect his wife. She wasn’t on the ticket. OK,...
