Ships Passing In the Night

It seems Fidel Castro had a deathbed conversion and now seeks to move his country toward capitalism. He told 500,000 government employees that they need to find work in the private sector. Their response, “What is a private sector? The economic policies of Castro and Obama are like two ships passing in the night; weContinue reading “Ships Passing In the Night”

It’s Time To Revisit the Balance Between Freedom and Security

In the wake of last week’s 9/11 remembrances and looking to the upcoming Mideast talks, it is a good time to reflect on what we have learned — and lost — since we took that sucker punch from a small group of al-Qaeda cowards. In the nine years since 9/11, we gave up too manyContinue reading “It’s Time To Revisit the Balance Between Freedom and Security”

The Economic Numbers Continue To Campaign For Republicans

The laws of economics are the new Jim Crow laws. If the Democrats cannot paint their opponents as racist or greedy, then they are pretty much out of solutions for any issue. Economic numbers tend to be more biased when the administration overseeing them knows nothing about business and the economy. Attorney General Eric HolderContinue reading “The Economic Numbers Continue To Campaign For Republicans”

A Tiger’s Tale

The Tiger Tale ended at the Bay County, Florida Courthouse last week when Elin Woods got her divorce finalized. An African-American man has not been as uncomfortable in Panama City since Barack Obama pretended to vacation there the weekend before. Tiger Woods’ marriage effectively ended when he sped out of his driveway last November, hitContinue reading “A Tiger’s Tale”

Don’t Take The Bait–Ignore The Ground Zero Mosque

Last week, President Obama said he had “no regrets” about endorsing the building of a mosque near Ground Zero. This was between vacations and right before he started his trip around the country to raise money and campaign for Democratic members of Congress who are in electoral trouble, most of whom were not in electoral trouble untilContinue reading “Don’t Take The Bait–Ignore The Ground Zero Mosque”

All Shook Up

The day comes when all the kids are gone. We sent our youngest kid off to NYU, the middle one back to the U of M to see what they can do with him, and our oldest to medical school this week. At times like this parents worry about many things to do with theirContinue reading “All Shook Up”

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”

The Last Of The Mohegans – Casino

In 1978 the Shinnecock Indian Nation applied to be recognized by the Federal Government; the same year Roman Polanski skipped bail on rape charges. They are now getting some finality on both, so as you can see, the Feds are working through their inbox quite briskly. As I remember history, the Native Americans lost thisContinue reading “The Last Of The Mohegans – Casino”

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”
