The other day, I was listening to the radio when I heard an announcer bring up the topic of a new “Iron Man” movie. Being that Iron Man was my absolute favorite superhero when I was a kid (I had at least 50 Iron Man comic books in my collection), along with the fact that…

There was a time when I’d roll my eyes whenever I’d hear the media hype a possible yet highly improbable health epidemic hitting the United States. A few years ago, we were all worried about the H1N1 flu virus (aka the Swine Flu). Before that, it was the feared Bird (Avian) Flu. Remember SARS, the…

Last week, there was a troubling incident at the White House when a man with a knife (later identified as Omar J.

You see, Canada’s corporate tax rate of 26% is significantly lower than that of the…

The Civil Rights Movement Reenactors on the Left

As a conservative columnist, I’m pretty used to being called some fairly colorful names by some of the liberal readers who find their way to this website and don’t like what I have to say. At least they don’t think they like what I have to say, because I’m pretty confident, based on their remarks,…

Obama Now Claims It Wasn’t His Decision to Leave Iraq

On Saturday morning, just before heading off on a two-week vacation, President Obama updated reporters on the progress of U.S. airstrikes against the ISIS terrorist group in Iraq. In response to a question about whether he regretted withdrawing our troops from the country in 2011, given how quickly ISIS subsequently took over parts of the…
