Barack Obama has declared that the best way to defeat ISIS is not with guns, but by coming up with better ideas. I beg to differ. If you’re ISIS and looking to terrify your enemies and trying to convert sadists to your mission, you’d be hard-pressed to come up with a better idea than beheading, […]

I know that there is no way I can ever really catch up with the news, but I’m addicted to trying. The problem is that even in the time it will take me to complete this article, eight or nine more things are going to be said or will take place that will make this […]

unfortunate bad news mess

Although it doesn’t appear in any English translation of Genesis, “a mess of pottage” has come to mean something precious, such as Esau’s birthright, which he surrendered to his twin brother, Jacob, in exchange for something essentially worthless, “pottage” referring to a thin gruel. That is the bargain that the liberals have made, trading away […]

It’s not as bad being a Jewish conservative as, I would assume, it is to be a black one. Mainly that’s because there are about 30% of Jews who will vote for a Republican, but a mere five percent of blacks who will dare risk antagonizing their friends and relatives. Also, when a Jew votes […]

For some of us, the 4th of July has become a melancholy holiday, inevitably reminding us of what we once were and what we have become. Ours is undeniably a trashy society. Our entertainment has grown increasingly obscene and pornographic; our media has become corrupt; education has morphed into state-sponsored propaganda; and our federal institutions, […]

I was hoping that Hillary Clinton would see the political advantage in nixing the deal with Iran and putting some daylight between herself and Obama. Now we just have to hope that Senate Democrats, particularly those who will be up for renewal in 2016, will remind themselves that the lame duck in the Oval Office […]

It seems to me that when crazy white people like Adam Lanza and James Holmes occasionally shoot a bunch of other white people, liberals will inevitably insist that stricter gun laws need to be enacted. But when 10 or 15 black people are shot by other black people on a typical weekend in Chicago, the […]

Karl Marx was convinced that religion was the opiate of the masses. That, no doubt, was the reason he decided to make a religion of his screwy economic theory. Surely it must have occurred to him that if people were willing to accept improbable miracles on faith, they might also be convinced that economic policies […]

brain thoughts mind opinion idea

In a way, I envy those pundits who write once a week about a single issue and are satisfied with themselves. I write three or four times a week, cover multiple topics every time out, and I still feel I’m falling behind. For instance, I don’t feel strongly one way or another about the Confederate […]

Supreme_Court_of_the_United_States_-_Philosophical_Swag

We can’t entirely blame the Democrats for the recent cockeyed decisions by the Supreme Court. After all, Anthony Kennedy was appointed by Ronald Reagan and John Roberts was handpicked by George W. Bush. What’s more, Reagan also appointed former justice Sandra Day O’Connor. It’s only fair to point out that the former also named Antonin […]
