Peace, love and European credibility “They feel there’s a real chance to work with the U.S.,” said Julianne Smith, a senior fellow at the Washington-based Center for Strategic and International Studies. “America’s image in the world is really on the line.” Thrilling. The same Europe that simultaneously spawned Mussolini and Hitler – and failed to do anyt... [More]


In this clip: The Mom represents the Democrats, the Dad represents the Republicans, Aunt Clara represents Hillary, the pink bunny is Hillary’s universal health coverage and Ralphie is the American taxpayers. Just because you believe you’re doing good doesn’t necessarily mean that the effect on other people is going to be positive. Ralphie would have done better with cash in an ... [More]

Dungy

For Crying Out Loud “If family is really first, doesn’t Dungy decide to live in the same city with his wife and children? Remember, Dungy not only has one adult daughter and a high school-age son. He and his wife also have three little ones, a first-grader, a kindergartener and an infant.” What a jerk. Seriously, the media in this country are out of control. This guy doesnR... [More]

Alan Colmes

Normally, I like Alan Colmes. I don’t agree with him on most things but he tends to be pretty fair on his show. Here’s an example of him in one of his lesser moments: To sum this clip up: Colmes: “Ya – ha!” Goldberg: “Nah – ah!” This is a perfect example of why television news shows are sometimes a revolting phenomenon in this country. One wonde... [More]

I’m about 1/4 of the way through Jonah Goldberg’s new book “Liberal Fascism”. Too early to have much of an opinion one way or the other but it’s a personal accomplishment for me to be able to get to page 100 in any modern political book. Most “political” books these days – whether they be allegedly “liberal” or “conservative”... [More]

Napolitano

Statism “It wasn’t designated primarily for revenue generation but since we have it (and) it works, we want to move statewide,” Napolitano said. “We made that decision before the whole budget issue arose. Now we take advantage of it and use it for law enforcement highway safety purposes.” An illustration of the problem with government in a nuthsell: It wasn’t ... [More]

Bloomberg

I know one thing – we don’t want this liberal statist as our next President. Of course, his victory is highly unlikely (thankfully). However, the question remains as to whose votes this guy will take. I know Republicans think it’s good for them. After Perot sentenced us to 8 years of Bill Clinton, I’m skeptical. This guy is far worse than Perot – and this Clinto... [More]

John loves Reagan “Senator Obama … used Ronald Reagan — President Ronald Reagan — as an example of change. My view is I will never use Ronald Reagan as an example of change,” Edwards said in Henderson, Nev. “When you think about what Ronald Reagan did to the American people … to the middle class … He was openly — openly intolerant of unions and the right to organize … I can guarantee … this Presi...

The discussions about race and gender in this country have become so tiring and detached from reality that it’s difficult to believe we continue to have them at all. A candidate’s race or gender is irrelevant to their qualifications as President of the United States. The vast majority of Americans know and believe this. Those pushing the issue want to have it both ways. Consider Gl... [More]


“A thousand years will pass and the guilt of Germany will not be erased.” - Hans Frank, Governor General of Poland, before he was hanged at Nuremberg It is often asked by those who do not believe… “Why, if there is a God, would he permit the pain, the suffering, the horrors that continually befall the human race?” A fair question. There are many responses to such a ... [More]
