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…

Obama Adopts ‘The Office Doctrine’ For Dealing With Syria

My wife and I were big fans of NBC’s The Office. Back before Steve Carell left the show (it became unwatchable after that), we never missed an episode. Even these days, after we put our kids to bed at night and can’t find much on television, it’s not uncommon for us to turn to our…

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

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…

Fileting Liberals

Sometimes I feel like a space traveler who has crash-landed on a very odd planet, one on which oxygen exists, but commonsense is in very short supply. Let us consider singer Katy Perry, who insists she can’t read very well because she was home-schooled by her Christian parents. I must confess that was pretty hard…

Obama & Other Horror Stories

It occurred to me the other day that people are confined to mental institutions when they’re found to constitute a danger to themselves or others. So, why is it that Obama is still running around loose? I also found myself thinking how far this nation has declined since the time of the Founding Fathers, while…

Even with all of the infighting and philosophical differences currently going on inside the Republican party, it’s pretty safe to say that the one thing that unites right-leaning thinkers is this country is a strong opposition President Obama’s mind-numbing expansion of the size and scope of the federal government. We understand how it’s hurting this…

Don’t Worry about Big Brother

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. They are just picking up where George W. Bush left off. They don’t really want to impinge on the civil liberties of Americans, but because…

The Nobel Prizes are a Crock

The Nobel prizes are a crock — and I’m not saying that because I haven’t won one yet. They just are. I’m not talking about the prizes for physics, chemistry and medicine. They may be a crock too, but I am not qualified to judge.  The prizes for economics certainly must be a crock, because…
