Bringing There to Here

I’m really getting tired of hearing how we are a nation built by immigrants.  Anyone who took American History 101 knows that … unless they were educated in the past quarter century or so while it was being rewritten.  The difference between those original immigrants and today’s border-jumpers or Middle-Eastern invaders is that they came here legally, with a desire to […]

Give Me Your Tired, Hungry and Loyal

Wouldn’t it have been interesting if, at some point during the Presidential campaign, one of the candidates asked, “Oh, by the way, has anyone in Washington DC ever heard of the McCarran-Walter Act Of 1952?  I didn’t know about this act until a friend sent me the link in an eMail, but it has been a […]

To Change or Not To Change

Let’s be clear. If there is a lasting split in the Republican Party, it is the fault of a leadership that refuses to accept the will of its members. The only presidential elections they’ve won in recent memory are those where they ran a conservative candidate, not a so-called “middle of the roader” … evidence […]

“How” Amigo!

“PC Activists Knock At Sorority’s Door To Complain About Racist Costume” Would somebody please explain why wearing a sombrero, a mariachi outfit or a mustache is “racist”?  ‘Scuze me but I’ve had a mustache since 1972, a beard since 1980 and I can’t speak a word of Spanish lingo, but I’m not a racist.  I […]

Conundrums

A conundrum is something that is puzzling or confusing, like … “Free people are not equal. Equal people are not free” or “A gun is like a parachute; if you need one, and don’t have one, you’ll probably never need one again.” Here are six conundrums of socialism that pretty much sum up America in […]

The Statue of Liberty

Often, people have difficulty framing their arguments when debating the currently proposed immigration revisions.  Rosemary LaBonte had no such problem in the letter she wrote to the Orange County Register.  Unfortunately, although it was clear and concise, they wouldn’t publish it because this particular letter to the editor was “either deemed politically incorrect” or simply […]

Initially Speaking

‪If I were a visitor to Earth from a distant planet I would probably need a magic decoder ring to know what anyone was talking about, not because I don’t know the language but because I don’t understand all the initials!  References to “the N-word” are spread over the news media as thickly as “the […]

Nothing New … SSDD

Funny.  We pull out all the stops to celebrate the arrival of a New Year and I wake up this morning to a heap of the same old dung that made 2013 barely bearable. It turns out that as the clock struck 2014, thousands of new laws, restrictions and regulations went into effect in the […]

Upsidedown and Backwards

The capacity of the left to stand things on their head and destroy them is truly amazing … like balancing an egg on end, then smashing it!  The latest mob performing such sleight of hand is the Military Religious Freedom Foundation.  They’ve managed to get a nativity scene at a United States Air Force base […]

Poor Kids

Recently I read an article that said the number of American children living in poverty placed us 34th among 35 countries.  If the writer really wanted to juice things up, he could have said we weren’t even among the top 25. Either way, the statement rapidly loses impact when you consider two relevant factors.  First, […]
