Donald Trump’s Yuuuuge Millennial and Independent problem – It’s either Ted Cruz or we lose

March 15, 2016

1

I normally dislike such insipid titles as the one I chose for this column. But in this particular case, the reality could not be more simple and straightforward. As the GOP Presidential nomination race moves forward, it is becoming more evident that in terms of voter’s preference, Donald Trump and Ted Cruz are going to […]

Ted Cruz and Bernie Sanders – two brands of Political Mouthwash

February 12, 2016

  I had an interesting discussion with a close friend today about a handful of topics. We talked about the trance that millions of people in this country have fallen into – not just with Donald Trump, but Hillary Clinton also. Of course, with Hillary, that’s a long standing phenomenon; with Trump it’s all more […]

Donald Trump – your newest Lucy Van Pelt

January 31, 2016

Everyone that grew up with Charles Schulz’ Peanuts cartoon strip and the animated specials, recognizes someone like Charlie Brown, the earnest, good hearted, self conscious and regretfully easily duped, little fellow that really wants to believe. He’s also mildly neurotic and tortured by insecurity and doubts. Many of us even see a bit of ourselves […]

You’re Not Voting For A President – You’re Hiring An Employee

October 16, 2015

You’re not electing a President, you’re hiring an employee Somehow, someway, things have gone off of the rails in America. A Presidential campaign has come to be seen as an ad campaign with the candidate being the subject of the best marketing techniques and image positioning. Part popularity contest and part careful and cautious stage […]

“Can I interest you in some Free Community College?” NO.

January 15, 2015

  A friend sent me the new Ann Coulter column in which she takes apart Obama’s latest grasping at straws scheme to change the national subject, the “Free Community College” proposal. I’m not going to discuss the proposal itself or quote Ann Coulter’s piece. To quote the article even in part, would be to rob […]

The Thanksgiving Illusion

November 27, 2013

I realize that I’m going to establish for myself, a reputation as an iconoclast and a ‘Grinch that stole Thanksgiving’ – or at the very least the ‘Grinch that defended the theft of Thanksgiving’.  I would be happy to settle for non-conformist and independent thinker, but let the critics do their worst.  It has come to my […]

Tears Of A Clown

October 30, 2013

I’m sorry to have to come across as a cruel hearted fellow (nah, I’m not really sorry), but, as we go forward with the series of biblical plagues emanating from the Obama administration and the Democrats in Congress and I hear sniveling, I’m going to start asking people in a rather direct (translate – rude) […]

American Consumer Culture = Debt Slavery

October 13, 2013

A lot of concern – well founded, in my opinion, centers around the skyrocketing growth of our national debt. To everyone with a solid grounding in economics and history, this is a dark, ominous cloud hanging over America. I’ve noted that our grandchildren will despise us for bequeathing to them a collective burden of taxation […]

What Is Our National Purpose?

September 6, 2013

What Is Our National Purpose? I was listening to a radio program a couple days ago, which featured a story that arrested my attention and set some gears in motion in my overheated gray matter.  For those of you in Rio Linda, California – that’s a brain. The basic theme of the profile, had to […]

He Ain’t Be Going to Disneyland

  The Trayvon Martin debacle still hasn’t subsided.  Now the malcontents want to put the pinch on Florida to try to coerce them into reconsidering the ‘Stand Your Ground’ law.  The fact that ‘Stand Your Ground’, wasn’t an element in the George Zimmerman murder trial, is just a trifling detail to these folks.  Getting rid […]
