Bootleggers And Baptists: Time To Cut Spending In Washington

Given his first-hand experience with the massive size, pettiness, cost, and overreach of deep-state government in Washington, it is time for Trump to cut about 25% of it. Apparently, Mueller’s FBI has so much money they try to fabricate testimony from Russian oligarchs. If government continues to grow at this rate, expect 10 policemen withContinue reading “Bootleggers And Baptists: Time To Cut Spending In Washington”

Just Another Week In The Life Of Our ‘Very Stable Genius’

Trump’s favorable poll numbers went up last week. Contrary to what you hear from the mainstream media, his numbers are higher than Obama’s were at the same point in his presidency. Trump has disrupted Washington, which is what he was sent there to do. Tax and regulation cuts have ignited the economy, unemployment is atContinue reading “Just Another Week In The Life Of Our ‘Very Stable Genius’”

Egyptians Unfriend Mubarak

Last week our puppet show in Egypt ended, but it was a good run. The problem is that the USA would rather deal with the thug we bought and paid for, Hosni Mubarak, than a theocracy we don’t know. So a nation in the Middle East, one of the few that kind of does notContinue reading “Egyptians Unfriend Mubarak”

Looking Back At 2010

As I do at the end of each year (which usually elicits many e-mails, but I am going to do it again anyway), here is my look back at 2010. England’s Prince William became engaged to long-time girlfriend Kate Middleton, whose charisma reminds many of Princess Diana. The Royal Family hopes Kate does not upstageContinue reading “Looking Back At 2010”

Where We Let Terrorists Really Hurt Us

With the TSA handling more packages than Fed-Ex this holiday season, we need to revisit our overreaction to the sucker punch that was 9/11. We know that the 9/11 hijackers were a loose band of religious zealots carrying out the commands of Osama bin Laden. They had no army and not many followers. The onlyContinue reading “Where We Let Terrorists Really Hurt Us”

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”

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”

Reason For Optimism – Kind Of

“My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government.”  —Thomas Jefferson Pessimists see the glass half empty; optimists see the glass half full. 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”
