Gather your courage and speak out. It's a sacred freedom

“If liberty means anything at all, it is the right to tell people what they don’t want to hear.” —  George Orwell, “Animal Farm.” Seems that growing segments of Americans, the media, corporations, religions and assorted virtuous institutions no longer agree. Speaking your mind can get you fired. Speaking your mind can gather a crowd... Read more »

A clarification: A vote for Biden is a vote for extremism, incompetence and shadow government

Sometimes the danger in this writing business is that the scribe doesn’t express himself well enough. It’s not the fault of the reader if the message isn’t clear, or is confusing, or contradictory. Thus it was with my post yesterday, “Dump Trump.” In it, I expressed my deep worry that Trump will lose the election... Read more »

Hey, Dad. Scram. You're not needed here

So say today’s cultural norms. Kids growing up without a father present just doesn’t matter. It doesn’t matter if the father’s not around in the home. It especially doesn’t matter if the father and mother aren’t married. So, on this Father’s Day, it is again necessary to review the science about the importance of fatherhood. as more  than one...

Has Joe Biden become Chance the Gardener?

Chance the Gardner (not Chance the Rapper) is “A simpleminded, sheltered gardener [who] becomes an unlikely trusted advisor to a powerful businessman and an insider in Washington politics.” Chauncey, played by Peter Sellers, hardly knows where he is, so when the rich owner of the garden suddenly dies, Chance is a total loss without guidance. He... Read more »

The Left's anti-science past opposition to epidemic testing

“Testing, testing, testing.” — House Speaker Nancy Pelosi today, emphasizing the importance of testing for the coronavirus. So glad that Pelosi and her Democrat and left-wing allies are finally getting around to supporting testing to control a rampaging epidemic. Democrats and liberals staunchly opposed testing and, as importantly, contact tracing when HIV was rampaging across America and... Read more »

I'm 78 and I'm not running for president

I’m too old. Like Joe Biden. I recognize Joe Biden. I know him. I know what it is to struggle for a word, as Biden did when he couldn’t remember, holy smokes, the name of God when he said, “All men and women created by—you know, you know the thing.” Or when he called Super... Read more »

Fact checking Bernie Sanders' socialism BS

Oh, right, Bernie, you’re not talking about “communism” and you accused Mike Bloomberg of a “cheap shot” when, in the Democrat presidential debate, he said the Marxist system doesn’t work. You instead said, “Let’s talk about democratic socialism. Not communism, Mr. Bloomberg….Let’s talk about—let’s talk about what goes on in countries like Denmark …” It’s Sanders’ familiar...

Rod Blagojevich is all yours, Illinois Democrats

Try as hard as you might to pretend that you had not much–make that nothing–to do with the rise and fall of former governor and convicted felon Rod Blagojevich, you, Illinois Democrats, created and nurtured him. He was the scion of the Chicago, Cook County and Illinois Democrat party and your efforts to disown him... Read more »

Trump's colluding with Bernie, dontcha know

UPDATE: Wow. This might not be parody after all. Read Eric Zorn’s, “South Carolina Republicans’ plan: Help Trump by voting for Sanders in Dem primary. Will it work, or backfire?” Still, Eric doesn’t go into how some Sanders supporters are trying to downplay his socialism. True. President Donald Trump’s fondest wish is to face Sen. Bernie Sanders...

Hey, Bernie's kids: Check out the mess in China

Do you fans of Bernie Sanders actually think that socialism works? Then check out what’s happening in China where it’s version of socialism is killing people and threatening a world-wide pandemic of deadly coronavirus. Yes, yes, I know. You say that Bernie’s is talking about the type of socialism as practiced in Scandinavia and not the... Read more »
