Treat or Trick

If there’s anything more bizarre than sitting around waiting for witches and goblins to strike on Halloween eve, it’s watching some of them buying a quarter of a million pepper spray projectiles, launchers and riot expansion kits in the name of Homeland Security.  It’s hearing others of them tell you to shop around in a […]

Speechless

When the great Chicago Cubs shortstop Ernie Banks retired in 1971, the first thing he said as he began his speech was, “I want to thank God for making me an American!” I wonder if he could get away with saying that today. He used two words that are becoming very unpopular these days … […]

Selling Planned Disaster

The impossibly impassable signup site is the least of it! More than a million and a half Americans [and counting] losing their existing healthcare coverage is just an anticipated ‘ACA’ oversight. It’s what you find if you do happen to get through that makes the little hairs on the back of your neck stand straight […]

“3-D” Congressman

There are few symbols as chilling and offensive to most Americans as a burning cross.  With his use of that symbol in a fundraising eMail, Rep.

The “A” Team

You may have heard that Mrs. Obama’s former Princeton Classmate is now a big muckety-muck with the computer company that received the no-bid contract to botch the $680 million Obamacare signup site.

Whatever Works

Kathleen Sebelius hit the campaign trail yesterday, telling Congress that she was “too busy” to appear at the probe into her failure as point person on the Obamacare website project.

Balancing Disconnect

Several years ago, there was a famous film in which the hero was told, “What we have here is a failure to communicate.” That statement may never have been more insightful than it is today, when we look at the disconnect between people, politicians and programs relative to Obamacare. Apart from the debate about whether […]

Gotcha!

In an apparent attempt to recapture ‘those thrilling days of yesteryear’ a woman nearly fainted during an Obama speech in the Rose Garden yesterday. As she was about to go down he told her, “I gocha, I gotcha.”  Now, there are rumors to the effect that this was a stunt but I don’t believe them. […]

Political Science

When I was in college there was a course of study called “Political Science”.  Since I had no particular interest in either entity back then, I didn’t take any classes in the subject … but I was told it was actually the science of politics, as opposed to the politics of science, as the name […]
