Crime Scene

It’s been called to my attention by a few readers – a little too gleefully in a couple of cases – that I goofed when I recently passed along the news that Barack Obama had opened up gas stations in certain urban enclaves that, thanks to a little known section of the Affordable Care Act, were offering free gas to poor people.

Apparently it was part of a satirical piece that had been posted on the Internet and red-flagged by Snopes.  …

It’s no secret that the Left tends to be totalitarian in nature.  Whether it was Hitler’s Germany, Mussolini’s Italy, Stalin’s Russia, Castro’s Cuba or Mao’s China, there’s nothing that pleases a Progressive more than a dictator with his boot on the neck of those they regard as a lower form of animal life: namely, conservatives.

We can now add Obama’s America to the long and dismal list.  Whether it’s using the IRS to punish his political foes; the Justice Department to …

Where does Obama keep finding these guys?  As if Eric Holder wasn’t horrible enough, Obama tried to push Debo Adegbile, whose most notable achievement was keeping a cop killer from being executed, into the Department of Justice, turning it into even more of a sewer than it already was.

Next, he decided to make Vivak Hallegere Murthy, who apparently regards the Second Amendment to be a greater threat to the nation’s health than booze, tobacco and Katherine Sebelius, put together, America’s …

In my book, “67 Conservatives You Should Meet Before You Die,” one of the questions I asked of all my subjects, who ranged, alphabetically, from Ablow, Keith, a prominent psychiatrist, to Zucker, David, a famous screenwriter-director, was which eight people who had ever lived, they would invite to a dinner party.

Being conservatives, it wasn’t too surprising that two people who would never have to pay for another meal if they ever showed up ready to tie on the old feedbag, …

When my dog Angel and I take off on her two daily constitutionals, we merely circle the block.  Under normal circumstances, it would only take me about 10 minutes.  Instead, it usually requires half an hour.  That’s because Angel needs to stop and sniff just about every bush, tree, wall and fire hydrant, we pass.  It was driving me nuts until I realized that my email is her peemail, and God knows I spend far more time dealing with mine.  …

Obamacare

We have heard Obama blathering for so long about seven million sign-ups to the Affordable Care Act being a sure sign of success that, like the audience at a magic show, we have fallen for the misdirection that is the secret of every magician’s sleight-of-hand.

To begin with, we are being asked to ignore the fact that millions who have signed up used to pay for their own health insurance before ObamaCare forced their policies to be ruled null and void.  …

Because it’s so easy and so much fun to belittle politicians, and because the fun isn’t limited to just Republicans or Democrats, we often lose sight of the fact that these folks are not members of royal families who inherit power the way others may inherit a farm or a family photo album.  They actually have to run for office and be elected, even if their names are Bush, Clinton or Rockefeller.

That being said, can you even imagine how stupid …

I don’t recall a time when it was so profitable to be in the polling industry.  It seems as if there’s a new one every five minutes, and most of them, you’ve probably noticed, show Obama cratering at the speed of light.  As a result, Republicans can hardly conceal their glee.  I, on the other hand, look at the numbers and I feel like tearing my hair out.  That is, I would if I had hair.  Instead, I’d settle for …

In the ongoing battle between those on the right and those on the left, the big difference is that the former approach it with one hand tied behind their back and the other hand clutching the Marquis of Queensbury rulebook, while those on the left will knee, gouge and use blackjacks whenever necessary.

All things considered, when liberals merely settle for lying, they’re being on their best behavior.  That’s why when it was discovered that Obama had been lying for three …

Even the good news these days is tainted.  For instance, the department of Homeland Security has granted the Romeikes, the German family seeking asylum, indefinite deferred status.  That means they will not be deported back to their homeland, where they faced losing custody of their children because of their insistence on home-schooling the kids.  The bad news is that our government took the case all the way to the Supreme Court, which wound up denying them asylum on a technicality.

What …
