Politicians Resemble Costa Concordia's Francesco Schettino

Politicians Resemble Costa Concordia's Francesco Schettino
I have always found it amusing whenever spin doctors begin wagging the dog in favor of their ideological beliefs. However after a top Republican official, Reince Priebus, sparked a political uproar on Sunday by comparing President Barack Obama to disgraced Italian ship captain Francesco Schettino it got even more amusing. And sadder! You know, I... Read more »

Cook County Morgue And A Policeman's Act Of Kindness Long Ago

Cook County Morgue And A Policeman's Act Of Kindness Long Ago
It will be 29 years in April, but I still vividly remember the day my mother died. She hadn’t felt good for a week, but, on the day she died decided she was okay and even went out to run some errands and pick up a prescription nearby. After returning to her apartment she collapsed... Read more »

Michael Madigan"One Of Many" Who Just Happens To, Duh, Control The Many

Michael Madigan"One Of Many" Who Just Happens To, Duh, Control The Many
Michael Madigan and his “Madigoons” aren’t exactly something imaginary folks – they really do exist here in Madghanistan a.k.a. Illinois. But I have to tell you, I found it really amusing when a reporter yesterday asked Michael Madigan about his own role in the failings of the state and he answered that he was merely... Read more »

Now I've Heard It All: Keith Ablow Defends Gingrich Infidelity

Now I've Heard It All: Keith Ablow Defends Gingrich Infidelity
There is something unique about Fox News, most notably, never knowing which one of their self-promoting, book selling, commentators and/or contributors will say something that can only be chalked-up as being totally off the wall and irrational. But as sure as I’m sitting here, that is a common occurrence at Fox News. One such recent... Read more »

Peotone: Jesse Jackson Jr. Needs To Stay The Hell Out Of Will County

Peotone: Jesse Jackson Jr. Needs To Stay The Hell Out Of Will County
Will County Board Chairman Jim Moustis has had my vote before and will continue to get it so long as he stays tough on the “Peotone Problem.” Now, the reason I choose to call it a problem is quite simple – we don’t need that third airport in Peotone if airlines have repeatedly said they...

Mark Wahlberg: Grand Illusions of September 11th or Hyping A New Movie?

Mark Wahlberg: Grand Illusions of September 11th or Hyping A New Movie?
If I have said it once, I’ve said it a thousand times already – Hollywood Celebrities should just stick to acting and shut up when it comes to the real life issues unless they can contribute something positive or relevant to the dialogue. Actors and actresses seem to think that their role-playing abilities qualify them... Read more »

Rick Perry Gasping For Air With Over The Top Comment
GOP Presidential Candidate, Rick Perry (R-Tx) is really gasping for air when he criticizes the Obama Administration over their reaction to U.S. Marines allegedly desecrating killed Taliban and then having it appear on You Tube. The fact is – what those Marines did was wrong at every level and no one, but no one can... Read more »

Term Limits: How About One 6 Year Presidential Term?

Term Limits: How About One 6 Year Presidential Term?
The 2012 Presidential Election cycle is in full swing, however, there are many people who believe that the current campaign began the day after President Barack Obama assumed office. To be fair, though, this is not about President Obama because this sort of thing has been going on for as long as I can remember.... Read more »

Mr. President - Who's Paying For Air Force One, Two and Marine One Today?

Mr. President - Who's Paying For Air Force One, Two and Marine One Today?
Ah how nice – President Barack Obama has come home, albeit for a very short trip and the news media is abuzz. However, as Air Force One was taxing down the runway it didn’t dawn on any of our evening newscasters to ask the obvious question regarding his travel arrangements. I mean, this is after...

Mitt Romney's New Hampshire Win A Slam Dunk: South Carolina The Real Test!
The cheesecake Iowa Caucuses and New Hampshire Primary are finally over and, for the Republican Party, the time has finally come to determine where it stands among a more divided constituency.
