“If I Like Your Health Care Plan” and “The Piltdown Man Signs Up for Obamacare”

Years ago, I wrote a TV movie. It was that semi-mythical thing known as a docudrama. That means the basic premise was factual, but names were changed and, more importantly, characters and dialogue were invented so that you would sit there through the last commercial. As it happens, the movie was never produced, mainly because…

Counting Down to Armageddon and America, 2013

Although I can sympathize with those who want Kathleen Sibelius’s head on a pike, just as I can sympathize with those who would like to see Eric Holder replaced as the attorney general, both groups are ignoring the fact that Obama would merely replace them with puppets who were just as bad or, if humanly…

Harry Reid Doesn’t Let a Good Colorado Crisis Go To Waste

One of my favorite leisure destinations in my home state of Colorado is Estes Park. It’s a popular, very friendly mountain town that sits at the base of Rocky Mountain National Park, about an hour and fifteen minute’s drive from where I live. It’s a beautiful place. A number of times each year, my family…

For the Record

Some people object to the fact that I generally jump around in my articles instead of devoting each to a single topic. They have my sympathy, but I’m afraid I can’t possibly accommodate them. It would be too much like firing a musket at a herd of charging buffalo. You might pick one off, but…

The World’s Gone Mad Today

My title comes from a Cole Porter lyric for “Anything Goes.” If anything, it’s even more relevant today than when he wrote it 79 years ago. For instance? For instance, we dither around while tinhorns in Iran and North Korea threaten to nuke us. I say that when you’re in an alley fight with thugs,…

Moving Forward

There is a great deal of hand-wringing and finger-pointing going on in Republican circles after the recent election. Much of it is justified. After all, how is it possible that after four years of Obama’s policies that have resulted in a terrible economy, a weakened military and ObamaCare, Mitt Romney could possibly receive two million…

The Self-Mutilation of Obama’s Surrogates Might Win Him a Second Term

Trying to make sense of the trending in national polls throughout this presidential election cycle has been a painstaking task. While most Americans who’ve been polled consistently cite the economy as their most important issue, it seems that the worse the country’s economic numbers get, the stronger President Obama fares against Mitt Romney. The only…

Harry Reid’s Shield of Shamelessness

reid

It’s not hard to understand why so many people are upset over Harry Reid’s baseless proclamation that Mitt Romney hasn’t paid any taxes over the past ten years. After all, it’s a pretty serious accusation, especially coming from a high-ranking politician like Reid who happens to be the majority leader of the U.S. Senate. If…
