What if Jackie Robinson had been like Obama?

When Branch Rickey determined to break the color barrier in Major League Baseball, he wisely recruited Jackie Robinson, a stellar athlete in multiple sports, who soon established himself as one of the greats of the game, black or white, and went on to easily earn a plaque in the Hall of Fame. He was an…

How about Putin for President of the U.S.?

obama-putin-handshake

I know that there would be difficulties in running Vladimir Putin for president of the United States. To begin with, he wasn’t born in the United States. But that was not an insurmountable obstacle for the incumbent. If Putin, who was born in what was then called Leningrad, were to produce documents indicating that he…

Don’t Worry about Big Brother

Obama-looking-at-computer

Yes, it’s true that the Obama administration has been intruding more and more into the private lives of our citizens, with electronic surveillance and the like, but don’t blame them.

Hey, World, I’m Straight

I went out on the street this morning, and to the first stranger  I met I said, “I’m straight.” He looked me up and down, evidently taking note of my slouching posture, and said: “You don’t look straight to me. Try lifting your chin, pulling in your stomach and thrusting your pelvis forward.” “No,” I…

Boston Marathon Bombing a Bush-Cheney Conspiracy?

george-bush

The father of the Tsarnaev brothers was interviewed in Russia, and an aunt was interviewed in Canada. Both claimed that the boys were framed, that this whole thing was a setup. They may not know it, but they have set the table for America’s vast horde of conspiracy theorists. I imagine that these wackos are…
