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 …

Lois Lerner

The health and fashion magazines keep telling their readers that 60 is the new 50, and 50 is the new 40, and so on.  We now have further proof that college is the new high school.  It seems that the SAT, an exam that is supposed to establish which 18-year-olds are college material and which ones should consider getting into politics as soon as possible, is not only making the essay portion optional, but removing difficult words from the vocabulary …

Let’s Give War a Chance

I am not a warmonger, but isn’t Vladimir Putin just begging for a major slap-down?  He has said that the worst event of the 20th century was the breakup of the Soviet Union, and he has done everything in his power to restore it to its former, let us say, gory.

He longs for the empire that had half of Europe under its heel and he yearns to be another Stalin, who was every bit a match …

Video: Lucy at the Candy Factory

In one of her classic comedy bits, Lucille Ball, as Lucy Ricardo, once got a job working on the conveyor belt packing chocolates.  Every few seconds, the belt would speed up and she started packing the chocolates in a panic.  Some went into boxes, others went into her mouth and still others went down the front of her dress.

There are times I feel like poor, bedraggled Lucy.  The news just keeps getting worse and worse and it keeps coming our …

I apologize if some of you read the title of this piece and leapt to the conclusion that Joe Biden had ascended to the Oval Office, not that that would be cause for dancing in the street.  Biden, after all, is a great champion of the Affordable Care Act and has been wrong when it comes to foreign affairs for nearly as long as Obama has been alive.

No, I was referring to Obama’s lack of punctuality.  He is not only …

Christians are being persecuted, often murdered, in over a hundred countries at this very moment.  Most of the massacres and church burnings are taking place in the Middle East, a gigantic swamp whose only redeeming features are oil and Israel, and the Orient, where China, Vietnam and North Korea, are proving themselves the swinish equals of Egypt, Syria and Iran.

In the meantime, the Obama regime goes along to get along, saving its quota of moral outrage for the Israelis who …
