Is health care in America a scam or just corruption and greed run amok?

Is health care in America a scam or just corruption and greed run amok?
We all know there’s a problem with America’s health care system, we just don’t know what to do about it. How we label it may be the least of the problem. We tend to think of scams as people stealing from the system or elaborate plots to rip off the public. A doctor filing Medicare... Read more »

Bella Cain sounded great until the drummer started talking

Bella Cain sounded great until the drummer started talking
Stopping in for a quick pop and some live music, we discovered a great band at the Broken Oar in Port Barrington, Illinois. Bella Cain’s slick website describes them as “The ‘hottest top 40 country group’ in the area!”  They are good and they play more than just country. About an hour into their set... Read more »

Lies, gibberish and the dangerous evolution of "fake news"

Lies, gibberish and the dangerous evolution of "fake news"
Donald Trump did not start out telling his audience that the media was making up stories about him.  He only said that all the stories written about him were negative. That, he said is what he calls “fake news.” He also said that he invented that phrase (he didn’t), which apparently gave him the right... Read more »

Christians United for Israel may be pro-Israel, but they're not pro-Jew

Christians United for Israel may be pro-Israel, but they're not pro-Jew
When people tell you that they’re members of Christians United for Israel, it’s just a new way of saying, “Some of my best friends are Jews.” Or, like pedophile Roy Moore’s wife, Kayla famously quipped, “One of our attorneys is a JYOOOO.”  To see Mrs. Moore spitting out the word Jew like it was spoiled...

Can we decriminalize rape by simply saying, "Rape is not a crime" ?

Can we decriminalize rape by simply saying, "Rape is not a crime" ?
(For Bleichy, a really cool chick and my brother-in-law, Bob.  Thanks for the encouragement) Before you go out and issue a fatwa on me, please be assured that I don’t think that rape should be decriminalized. Quite the opposite. I think rape laws should be stiffer, punishments more severe (penectomy?) and defense attorneys should not... Read more »

Did 9/11 really happen or is it just Libtard, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton fake news?

Did 9/11 really happen or is it just Libtard, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton fake news?
Conspiracy theories about the events of September 11, 2001 abound but, we all seem to agree that something horrible happened on that day. There’s a generation of kids about to enter college who were not even alive in 2001 and it will be interesting to see, in years to come how they carry that event... Read more »

Donald Trump is the first Republican to win Wisconsin since Dwight Eisenhower in 1952

Donald Trump is the first Republican to win Wisconsin since Dwight Eisenhower in 1952
Donald Trump told a clamoring throng of supporters in Fargo, North Dakota this week that he was the first Republican to win Wisconsin since 1952. If you’re one of the two or three people who read my stuff regularly, I would hope that you’re thinking to yourself, “Hmmm, that doesn’t seem right.” You would be... Read more »

Is Jon Meacham naive about the "Soul of America"?

Is Jon Meacham naive about the "Soul of America"?
In his new book, “The Soul of America: The Battle for Our Better Angels,” Jon Meacham presents the historical context out of which arose Donald Trump. The book’s conclusion seems a myopic, “It’ll be OK.” If only I could believe that. The book is a wonderland of American history, presented by great writer. “The Soul... Read more »

Is Ivanka Trump really a feckless vagina?

Is Ivanka Trump really a feckless vagina?
Samantha Bee stirred up quite a controversy last month when she called First (and favorite) Daughter, Ivanka Trump a “feckless cunt.” Out of respect for our sensibilities, I substituted the the v-word for the c-word in the title. It’s hard to say how any word can become such anathema to all that it is universally... Read more »

Did Trump just give away the store to a "very talented" Kim Jong-un?

Did Trump just give away the store to a "very talented" Kim Jong-un?
Let’s pretend that you just got an invitation to your cousin’s wedding.  The RSVP card and self-addressed envelope were missing, but that’s not all. There’s no mention of Cousin Kelly’s betrothed or of the date or location of the event.  It appears that Cousin Kelly is planning a wedding, but hasn’t yet made her love... Read more »
