“They Protesteth Too Much” and “Walker & Martinez, 2016″

As I have written on other similar occasions, it’s a protest when you toss the tea into the harbor; when you grab the tea or, rather, the TV sets, liquor and sports equipment and take it home, it’s a riot and those who take part are not patriots, they’re thugs. As I watched what was…

Gnomes In The News

I recently saw a photo taken during a September event called the People’s Climate March in New York City. There was Jane Goodall in the front rank holding a couple of stuffed toy monkeys, thus making herself more readily recognizable to caption writers who might not otherwise recall that she spent a large portion of…

“Who Needs Amendments?” and “Liberals Are All Scaredy Cats”

In the old John Huston movie, “The Treasure of the Sierra Madre,” when Humphrey Bogart’s Fred C. Dobbs asks to see the badge of the Mexican bandit leader trying to pass himself off as an officer in the Federales, Alfonso Bedoya carved a niche in motion picture history by replying: “Badges? We ain’t got no…

Tax In The Form Of A Billy Club

Taxes have always been something that normal people resented. It’s not simply because the money raised is often wasted by those in power, whether those people happen to be kings, czars or congressmen, but because, as individuals, we resent many of the things our money goes to support.

“A Gruber By Any Name” and “A Survival Plan For The GOP”

If you’ve been watching Fox recently, you would think Prof. Jonathan Gruber had been given his own show. He’s been on more often than Juan Williams. While normally that would be a good thing, Gruber is no improvement over Obama’s fav Fox commentator. In case you only watch the major networks, you wouldn’t even know that…

Not Entirely Idle Thoughts

Some people collect stamps, others collect sea shells, and I collect notions. Unfortunately, unlike those others, I can’t just stick mine in albums or glass jars. I have to stick them in my articles. First up is illegal immigration. Before Obama or Congress gets around to pulling any stunts, they should enforce the laws already…

“2016 Is Just Around The Corner” and “Now Let’s Get Things Undone”

With the next presidential election less than two years away, it’s not too soon to get a few things straight. Although Reince Priebus has already mentioned some worthwhile changes in the way we end up with a nominee, including a shorter campaign season, an earlier convention and a ban on liberals moderating the debates, there…

“The Nanny Media” and “Que Sera Sera”

We all know that Obama’s federal government wants to control us from the cradle to the early grave mandated by the Affordable Care Act, but they wouldn’t have nearly so easy a time of it if it weren’t for the complicit media. As I have said in the past, if I could control the media,…
