The Administration is fast-tracking an amazing payout to the 9 victims of the Charleston, South Carolina shooting. This amount is to be $29 million. By comparison the Aurora, Colorado theater shooting was given to assist the victims, $2.9 million. This was for, according to the Justice Dept., up to 1500 people affected. There 12 killed and 69 wounded...

Judicial Activism
Posted Wednesday, July 1, at 11:57 AM

Recent weeks have furthered the certainty that if we continue on this path our grandchildren will live in a bankrupt third-world country. No one can possibility present a cogent argument that we are not now an oligarchy ruled by a cadre of five people on the Supreme Court and the President of the United States. ...

The Day the Constitution Dies II
Posted Thursday, June 25, at 8:20 PM

If anyone doubted the points enumerated in my piece, The Day The Constitution Died, which I first published on Nov. 6th, 2008 then I refer you to my archives here to refresh your memories or for those who may not have read it. Today's SCOTUS ruling re Obamacare drove the final nail into the coffin of representative democracy in the United States of America. We are now in all but name, an Oligarchy...

Obamacare
Posted Monday, June 22, at 1:56 PM

As we await SCOTUS ruling on whether Obamacare can be bought and supplemented on non-State exchanges, I am having trouble understanding why a lawsuit was needed as the verbiage in the statute is obvious and not in the least arbitrary. The Administration authored the statute and Congress refused any input or amendments from Republicans in the enacting process, Prof. ...

Iraq and WMDs
Posted Tuesday, May 26, at 3:18 PM

An absolutely obvious truism, i.e., the mainstream press is uber-liberal was proven again over the past weekend. Bob Woodward, of the flagship of Liberal banner bearer the Washington Post stated on national television after his eighteen months investigation the invasion of Iraq could be argued was a mistake, but he stated, "There was no lie in this that I could find," re the persistent allegations that Geo. Bush lied about the presence of WMDs...

Omaha Police Officer
Posted Friday, May 22, at 3:06 PM

I have looked everywhere for scenes of 500-600 people being bussed into Omaha and locals along with high school students rioting in the street and looting and burning local businesses. Can anyone with better research skills help me?

UN
Posted Friday, May 15, at 1:25 PM

I came across an article in Aljazeera titled, "US Cited for Police Violence and Racism in Scathing UN Review on Human Rights." By Natasja Sheriff ( May 11th) This was derived from a study and report of the UN's Human Rights Council. Ms. Sheriff wrote, "The United States was slammed over its rights record Monday at the United Nation's Human Rights Council, with member nations criticizing the country (US) for police violence, racial discrimination, the Guantanamo Bay detention facility and the continued use of the death penalty." A couple statements from some members, (1) "The human rights situation in the country has seriously deteriorated recently." And (2) "Serious concerns about the human rights situation in the US.......". ...

Liberals
Posted Tuesday, May 12, at 1:31 PM

The neolib is nowhere more exposed than in the area of gun control. This area demonstrates their dearly held belief one should not do as they do but do as they say. Most celebrities, for whatever reason, largely of the liberal persuasion, are adamant gun control advocates, yet they almost universally employ armed body guards! A few examples of very vocal gun control advocates: Michael Bloomberg, former mayor of NYC who has vowed to spend 50 million dollars to lobby for strict gun controls, but has his own armed security; Rosie O'Donnell who has said the 2nd Amendment is "not really a right," and strongly supports onerous gun control laws, yet she too has armed security for her family; Ted Kennedy, a long time voice for strict gun controls, had a bodyguard caught in the Capitol with a machine gun. ...

Baltimore
Posted Wednesday, May 6, at 12:52 PM

The recent happenings in Baltimore display in microcosm many problems of our Nation. In Baltimore, liberal leadership has held sway for 48 years yet the problems of half a century ago remain. This after obscene amounts of money have been wasted with no positive results...

The Day the Constitution Died
Posted Wednesday, April 29, at 4:46 PM

I posted this piece on Nov. 6th, 2008. Thought it might be of some interest six and one half years later. THE DAY THE CONSTITUTION DIED FDR referred to the attack on Pearl Harbor, Hawaii on December 7th, 1941 as "a day that will live in infamy." I fear that same phrase can, and may, be used by future generations to describe November 4th, 2008. ...

Adjectives
Posted Sunday, April 19, at 11:51 AM

From 2008 that got some recognition. I wonder how life would be if somehow we could outlaw for a year, say, all adjectives describing personal nouns and/or pronouns? Imagine if you never heard nor read for a year such words as black, white, Hispanic, fat, lazy, bald, slovenly, stupid, clumsy, Asian, hairy, liberal, conservative plus several dozen others applied to a person. ...

Animal Rights
Posted Sunday, April 19, at 11:45 AM

This is a piece I wrote in June of 2011. It is still apropos, I think, for many in this area so thought it might be of some interest. It is difficult in this area not to notice the cacophonies raised by animal rights activists re the walking horse industry. ...

Here Comes Hillary
Posted Monday, April 13, at 5:58 PM

Well, we now have Hillary officially running for President. Should be interesting watching her run from Obama and try to convince we poor folk she is not running for a third Obama term. Remember, Obama is at fault for nothing negative. That is the fault of "the previous administration." Of course all Neolib Elitists quickly go into selective memory mode when one speaks of Obama's positions in 2008. ...

Breakout
Posted Friday, April 3, at 4:37 PM

The time one takes to make enough fissile materials for one nuclear bomb is the accepted definition of "breakout time." The recent agreement, which will not be defined in writing until June 30, purportedly will insure Iran will have a breakout time of at least 12 months...

Separation of Church and State
Posted Thursday, April 2, at 4:25 PM

Well here goes. I'm coming out of the closet. There are some anonymous megalomaniacal pedants who are sure I am a far right Republican. A position I have never held in my life. The piece below I wrote 7-8 years ago that has been widely circulated. I thought it might be of interest today so I am running it again. ...

Respect
Posted Tuesday, March 31, at 5:49 PM

Respect. A word that has been bandied about profusely in recent times. Usually by ones who think they and/or certain peoples are due respect based, I suppose, on some amorphous parameters dictating that respect should be willingly forthcoming based solely on demand...

Hubris

"The issue is not a matter of personal relations but a substantive challenge. We believe two States are the best way to preserve Israel's security..." Even thought Israelis overwhelmingly elected Netanyahu, our own President tells Israel and the world he doesn't care what they want, he, and apparently only he, knows what is best for them and he will save them from himself...

War on Prosperity.
Posted Thursday, March 26, at 12:21 PM

A piece I posted in April 2009. Seems to me to be appropriate today. We have been since LBJ in a War on Poverty. How's it working? Does anyone think we have fewer homeless, fewer hungry children, a more prosperous Appalachia or more viable inner-city neighborhoods than in the 1960s? I think not...

Poetry
Posted Saturday, March 21, at 4:39 PM

I ran this on Aug. 25, 2009. Thought it might be of interest today. Poetry's beauty is in its brevity. Stating volumes with very few chosen words. I suggest the following examples are poetry in the political/social arena. I have noted these expressions over the years and aver they are poetry in the strictest and classic sense...
