Mitt Romney 2016 – Don’t Even Think About It, Say No Go!

October 24, 2014

  Well, I tell you what. I had an article to write about all the ferment within the neo-con wing of the GOP about Mitt taking another shot at the presidential nomination, but I put it on a back burner to simmer. That was until “the Donald” – yes, that Donald, Donald Trump forced my […]

Don’t Forget About Sarah

We are now in the process of evaluating this year’s CPAC, and that’s something I intend to properly address in a day or two, but meanwhile, I was doing a little housekeeping, cleaning out old emails and email drafts and found one about a person that has been enormously influential, but of whom, very little […]

Obamacare – Corporate Wealth Transfer or the ‘New Capitalism’?

January 17, 2014

For some time now I’ve been attempting to convey the reality that Corporate America, or otherwise casually referred to as ‘Big Business’, broadly speaking – is not practicing what many of us who consider ourselves conservatives would classify as legitimate capitalism.  Corporatism, Corporatocracy, Corruption, Rent Seeking?, yes.  Classic capitalism? – no.  The obstacle in exposing […]

MSNBC Lying In The Bed They Made

By now most every political junkie on either side of the spectrum, has digested the Duck Dynasty fiasco and the Melissa Harris-Perry debacle, oh, and certainly let’s not leave out Martin Bashir and Alec Baldwin.   Because of that, I’m not going to discuss the merits of those incidents specifically, but to look at them […]

“I Said I Was Sorry!”

November 4, 2013

Everyone’s witnessed the insincere, cynical style of apology from one side of it or the other, or both. In childhood, maybe your parents caught you being rude to a brother or sister or  playmate. To correct your behavior and smooth out the wrinkle in the relationship, they told you – “O.K., I want you to apologize […]

What Is Conservativism and what isn’t?

Communication on Blasted Fools is not simply a one way street.  I’ve decided that for the new year, I want to encourage more reader involvement in the posts.  I’m going to start off with something that I think about daily and keeps insisting on some answers.  What is ‘Conservatism’ and what defines a person as […]

Fed Up Brits

In light of the election results in America last month, which seem to confirm that a majority of voters prefer dependence to opportunity, I was amazed to discover a contrary trend within the last few years arising from the most unlikely of places – the United Kingdom!   Yes, Great Britain, which remains Britain, but hasn’t […]

Blasted Fools’ Person of the Year 2012

December 31, 2012

Well, the election results for ‘Blasted Fool’ Person of the Year 2012 are in and have been certified by moi.  It was a landslide, ladies and gentlemen.  His election was never really in doubt.  The reasons for this were chronicled in part here on Blasted Fools earlier this year.  Every audacious assault on the ramparts […]

November 6th – the New April Fools’ Day

November 26, 2012

6

The one point of universal agreement among people who look at the world and events through the lens of conservatism, is that this election is a wake up call. Not the typical one we tend to imagine – the morning alarm, but more akin to being summarily doused with a nice, cold bucket of water […]

Karnak the Great Has Spoken

Editor’s Note:  This post was a personal ‘Waterloo’ for me.  I  slightly  made  a colossal maroon out of myself, having believed – (worse yet, publicly proclaiming) that Romney was going to drop 308 electoral votes on Obama.  I’d like to say that I had no such notion, and that I was just hustling you for […]
