A Tale of Two Michaels: Smerconish is Wrong, Moore is Almost Correct

A Tale of Two Michaels: Smerconish is Wrong, Moore is Almost Correct
Michael Smerconish has been a part of my Saturday mornings for years. I only have time to watch the first half of his show, but I sometimes catch the second half when they replay it at 5:00 PM (Central).

Guns, Violence and Advertising in the Age of Trumpism, Hate and Fear

Guns, Violence and Advertising in the Age of Trumpism, Hate and Fear
The above advertisement caught my eye as I thumbed through a magazine while cooling my heels at the Denver airport. It’s a lot to take in. There’s a casual, but urgent proffer of weapons of annihilation.  I’m not anti-gun but let’s face it, the AR-15 is exquisitely designed to inflict catastrophic damage to flesh and... Read more »

One hundred people died in the three shootings listed above, but Paul Ryan says we shouldn’t jump to conclusions. A teenager with an AR-15 killed seventeen people at a high school in Parkland, Florida.  What conclusions are we jumping to, Mr. Speaker?

Chain, chain, chain. Chain of fools

Chain, chain, chain. Chain of fools
We are all chained, in one way or another.  We are slaves to the inner workings of our minds and to the circumstances we’ve created in our lives.  For better or worse (mostly worse), we act the way we are wired to act. Only one form of migration however, can be described as “chain.” African... Read more »

A Libtard's Defense of Rob Porter
If you’ve visited this space before, you know that it’s no place to look for a defense of Donald Trump, John Kelly or anyone in the current administration. It may be time though, for all of us to examine the extent to which we’ve become a bunch of knee jerks. Being called a “libtard” is... Read more »
