Trump Triumph!

Last night wasn’t just Donald Trump giving a speech. It wasn’t Donald Trump businessman, candidate or even President-elect giving a speech. Last night was The President of the United States addressing both houses of Congress. As Ol’ Lefty Chris Wallace even said on FOX, “Whatever you believe, whatever side you are on, tonight Donald Trump […]

Sellout

Some mental conditions can be corrected but, as we all know, you can’t fix stupid.  We’re not talking about Republicans here, and certainly not Conservatives, just people who deceptively stick an ‘R’ after their name with the hope it will make them look respectable. Anyone who holds our Constitution and our nation in high esteem […]

One For The Team

Marco Rubio is the poor soul the coach sends up to bat to take one on the noggin because the team needs a base runner and the kid can’t hit anyway.  Rubio is on a suicide mission, make no mistake about it.  His acceptance of the GOP attack dog roll against Donald Trump will certainly […]

State Of The Realm

Tonight the prez pops out to tell Congress what size shadow he sees … kind of a takeoff on Pennsylvania’s Punxsutawney Phil.  Everyone is trying to guess what he’ll be talking about but as Hillary would say, “What difference does it make?”  You can’t believe any of it and the coming year is likely to […]

Humpty Healthcare

I just received a note from someone who complained they were tired of hearing more spin from the left about the Obamacare rollout. Let’s get something clear.  There is no spin, no defense, just repeal!  The problem is not the rollout, it’s the entire, ill-conceived law. The 2 or 3 elements hidden among those several […]

Legacy

Whenever Barack Obama’s record is called into question, the last defensive gasp usually incorporates some statement about him having won the election.  It reminds me of a classic, tongue-in-cheek remark once made by former New York Mayor Ed Kotch who said,  “The people have spoken … and now they must be punished!” Today, House Republicans […]

Disconnected

There are so many in Washington so out of touch, not just with the American people but with real life!  I like the concept Rick Perry talked about when he was running for President … a part time Congress.  The idea is that our representatives would spend 6 months in D.C. and then go home […]

Three Little Words

Apparently, if you work for the government and get into hot water, it’s not a problem when you know the correct combination of three words. “I don’t know” is a phrase that is universally acceptable from the age of around six up, while “I don’t remember” works better for older employees.  For those holding a […]

Giveth And Taketh

What the government giveth, the government can taketh away! I remember back in the 1970’s, during the last big environmental push, conserving electricity was the hot item. It wasn’t long before utilities were complaining that people were using too little power and the companies weren’t taking in as much money as they used to … […]

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. Speaking to a small press conference in Phoenix she said, “The majority of people calling for me to resign I would say are people who […]
