Keeping Score

Everything I see and hear about the Olympics seems to be centered around the medal count.  At one point, Putin was practically buying train tickets to Siberia for the Russian hockey team and most of the U.S. media are lamenting how American athletes have been disappointing this year in their medal “haul” … particularly gold. […]

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 […]

“O”

How out of touch with common sense and reality can “O” be when he suggests that people talk about his healthcare debacle during their family Christmas celebration?  I suppose he’d rather if folks leave off the debacle part, but that’s pretty hard to do when your Holiday present from the White House has been to […]

Do No Harm

Remember the physicians’ primary guiding principle, “First do no harm?”  They should have paid more attention to that precept while attempting to fix the ailing Obamacare website.  The big day for the resuscitated patient has come and gone and the site is sicker than ever!  Oh, more people can get through before it crashes and […]

Racist “Game”?

Knockout.  Polar Bear Hunting.  These are the names for a frightening new “game” being played by black youths.  You don’t hear the Polar Bear reference very often; in fact this type of assault has only recently been covered at all by the media.  You see, Polar Bears are white and the players in this “game” […]

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 […]

The Numbers Game

The same way The White House is fudging unemployment figures by not counting disappearing jobs or people leaving the work force … the same way they’re cooking the inflation books by not counting cost increases in food and energy … that’s how fast and loose they’re playing it with the millions of people losing their […]

Not Legal Law

Obama’s lame ‘apology’ for people losing their health insurance — rather than for lying about their ability to keep it in the first place — was a lot like the guy who knowingly served his guests tainted chicken and then said he was sorry they got salmonella poisoning. The main media focus seems to be […]

Fixing Things

I remember an old Donald Duck cartoon, where his nephews — Huey, Louie and Dewey — accidently made a hole in a blanket. Their fix, so they wouldn’t be punished, was to take a scissor and cut the hole out, which of course left a bigger hole.  Now the problem was even more glaring, so […]
