How To Lose A Man In Ten Days


Season One of Survivor: Trump White House has been nonstop fun. In this week’s episode: Spicer out. Reince Priebus out. Anthony Scaramucci in, then out.  Scaramucci was brought in to get rid of leaks and clean up the White House. Trump reasoned that a Scaramucci from New York should know how to protect a Don.

The Angle Of the Rangel

The Democrats’ main tax-writing congressman and for years head of the powerful House Ways and Means Committee, Charlie Rangel (D-NY), finally had to accept the terrible punishment for his ways and means of getting money by being the first congressman censured in about thirty years. For the record, as the Congressional Ethics Committee sees it, there hasContinue reading “The Angle Of the Rangel”

Dems Try To Rein In Rangel

The Democrats have an impending problem surfacing at an inopportune time, the investigation of Rep. Charles Rangel (D-NY) by the House Ethics Committee.  This comes as a surprise to many — the House has an Ethics Committee? “House ethics” is an oxymoron, much like the “Senate intelligence” that led up to the wars in IraqContinue reading “Dems Try To Rein In Rangel”

Liberals Flunk Economics 101

According to a Zogby survey (buried by the mainstream media as an irrelevant news item), self-identified Democrats and Progressives score badly on a simple test of economic understanding. This, according to the May issue of Econ Journal Watch (which I read only because it was the swimsuit issue), was no surprise to the cognitive few remainingContinue reading “Liberals Flunk Economics 101”

From Russia With Love

“History does not repeat itself, but it does rhyme.”  —  Mark Twain If you thought we were reliving the Jimmy Carter administration with oil issues, a bad economy and policies that are just making it worse, problems with Iran, and a president who is in over his head, then it just gets more “déjà vuContinue reading “From Russia With Love”

I guess I am somewhere in between, because I see a glass half full of water and think, “Hey, there is ample room for bourbon!” We haveContinue reading “Reason For Optimism – Kind Of”

South Carolina Goes Greene

A telling story is unfolding in the Democrat Senate primary in South Carolina. This one might take the cake, even in a state affectionately known as “The Jerry Springer Show” of politics. Half-wit Alvin Greene, who ran for the Democratic Senate nomination to challenge sitting (which is about all they do) Sen. Jim “Never NeedsContinue reading “South Carolina Goes Greene”

Did Capitalism Or Government Fail Us?

The inevitable pictures of pelicans covered in oil finally surfaced, solidifying this oil spill as the worst environmental disaster in U.S. history. We have not seen this many pictures of unintelligent animals covered in oil since the first season of “Jersey Shore.” Now we ask the bigger question: Which failed us more, capitalism or government?Continue reading “Did Capitalism Or Government Fail Us?”

A Euro Of Living Dangerously

Chaotic and socialist, Greece upset the European apple cart recently when they failed to curtail unsustainable government spending. Greece has been on a collision course with reality for years and now has to be bailed out with a $1 trillion package to avert their crisis from spreading throughout Europe. Billions will come from the U.S.Continue reading “A Euro Of Living Dangerously”

Team Obama Rounds Up The Villains

To implement its agenda, Team Obama develops a narrative according to its needs. Then they send the marching orders out to their brethren in the media, who faithfully run stories sympathetic to the goal du jour. “Deal with us or we take you down,” Obama tells his targets in his best Chicago-style politico-speak. “If youContinue reading “Team Obama Rounds Up The Villains”
