Reporter Seriously Asks If Asteroid Coming At Earth Was Caused By Global Warming

Last month I wrote that journalism in the United States had hit an all time low and stating that it could not possibly get any worse – I was clearly wrong.  Journalists used to be the protectors of the truth leveling the playing field and questioning everything and everyone regardless of the power or position…

Penelope Soto Symbolic Of Incivility And Entitlement Of Youth Today

You have probably heard the story by now and I was off pursuing other interests when this story broke but I thought it was so symbolic of what is wrong with America today that I decided to run with it even though I am a day late.  When I sat down to write this post…

Imaginary Grenade Thrown At Imaginary Evil Box Results In Second Grader Suspension

Seven year old Alex Watkins slowly crept around the jungle gym carefully looking for sentries protecting the evil box.  Seeing that the enemy’s guard was down, Alex leapt to his feet and hurled the grenade at the box destroying it and in one smooth step, saving the world.  That is what happened in the mind of…

Gun Hysteria – 5 Year Old Branded A Terrorist For Bubble Gun Threat

  First we strip-searched grandma at the airport after 9/11 and now we are branding bubble packing 5-year olds as terrorists.  Overreacting to events is one of the unfortunate hallmarks of American society, and we are clearly seeing this attribute play out in the aftermath of the horrible Sand Hook tragedy.  One of the ways…

“Checkmark” Politics Destroying Republican Party

  Walking around in a daze like a group of non-flesh eating zombies, my Republican friends are still in mourning following the lashing we took in last month’s election.  Confused and beleaguered conservatives are reacting much like a biblical Job crying out to God “why me?”  Not only did we lose the election but our polling numbers…

Why Do We Tolerate The Racism Of The Washington Post?

  Demonstrating the worst of all tactics of censorship and intimidation, the Washington Post issued a racist attack on 97 House Republicans whose sole crime was to deign to express concern over the potential nomination of current United Nations Ambassador Susan Rice as Secretary of State.  (Washington Post Editorial)  Admittedly without a shred of evidence…

I Am Right About Politics And You Are Wrong

  Living in a time of clear division in which a President faces choices that will mold our country in a permanent and lasting way.  Abraham Lincoln reunited the country with force when he faced the United States greatest crisis since independence.  Today President Obama faces a country that is equally divided and equally fragile….

Is The GOP Dead?

  An economy in shambles, a campaign in which the incumbent completely avoided discussing his own record, unemployment above levels above which an incumbent had EVER (that means ever in history) won an election, the rapid fall off of the positives of the  incumbent candidate and six huge scandals pending DURING and election – with…

How Did The Media Of Woodward And Bernstein Disintegrate So Fast?

Reading the comments to many of these stories one theme is loud and consistent – Democrats believe what is printed in liberal publications or TV broadcasts (which is most of them) and Republicans read and watch the few conservative media sources. The one exception to the virtual liberal media stranglehold is radio which is predominately…

Pardon Me, I’m Confused – Reflections On Election Eve

  Nearing the final hours of this campaign I honestly keep asking myself a single question – what am I missing?  An economy in shambles.  The forced adoption of a health care plan that the vast majority of the country opposes.  A failed foreign policy that has greatly diminished the standing of the United States. …

What Do You Think?

  You have been listening to me blather on for the past 64 days – now that we are about 48 hours away from closing the polls I would really like to hear from you.  I won’t insult you with a meaningless poll about who you think will win any of the elections, I want…

Are We Living Orwell’s 1984?

  George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four was one of those books that I read at just at the right point in my life to have a real long-term impact on my philosophy.  When I read it 35 years ago. I reasonably drew parallels to events going on at that time in the communist world.  Never in my…
