“I Used To Be A Democrat” and “Do Liberals Ever Listen To Themselves?”

It’s true that for a long time, an inexcusably long time, I was a registered Democrat. But even then, I never called myself a liberal. Because I came of age in the 1960s, I associated liberals with the punks I knew who called cops “pigs,” called soldiers “baby killers” and used any and all means…

“The Cesspool at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave” and “Cruel & Unusual Punishment”

A friend of mine, after taking note of Obama’s approach to foreign affairs, has decided that his doctrine is to speak softly and carry a big grudge. But if you stop and think about it, that also sums up his domestic policies, which seem aimed at burdening the middle class with additional taxes; a health…

“Debunking Balderdash” and “Piling On Cliven Bundy”

The oracles at the New York Times recently announced that, economically, our own middle class has fallen behind that of our neighbor to the north. I’m not sure what their intention was in sharing this bad news. Heaven knows they’d never think of laying the blame for this embarrassment at the feet of Barack Obama…

After ‘Doomsday’ Sequester Cuts, Only One Person Laid Off; Do You Care?

doomsday

President Obama told the country that it would “add hundreds of thousands of Americans to the unemployment rolls.” And just in case the media, Republicans, or anyone else among the American public thought he was exaggerating, he made it clear that he wasn’t. “This is not an abstraction,” the president added. “People will lose their…

Mistakes & Other Misdemeanors

Over the course of writing 1,400 articles, I have made some mistakes. Liberals would insist that each of the 1,400 is jam-packed with them, but they’d only be taking issue with my opinions and my conclusions. I’m not claiming that even conservatives agree with me all the time or that all of my jokes are…

“Reid, Steyer & Other Leftist Thugs” and “America Is Barely Hanging On”

I know that a lot of people continue to call for Obama’s impeachment, but it’s an exercise in futility. The Republicans can’t, even though Obama has treated the Constitution as if it was an old rag, and the Democrats won’t. We had a great opportunity to dump him in 2012 and replace him with Mitt…

A Nation in Decline

When people used to say “Only in America,” they intended it as praise, highlighting the promise that anyone – no matter his religion, his nation of origin or the circumstances into which he was born – could succeed in America beyond anyone’s expectation. But when you see a Marxist slacker like Obama twice elected to…

Channeling Will Rogers

Because it’s been about 80 years since Will Rogers died in a plane crash, there are a lot of people who never heard of him even though he had been a major attraction in vaudeville, a movie star and a homespun columnist given to such observations as “The only difference between death and taxes is…
