SELLING SILVER

I just put on the TV for a moment or two, and was treated to a commercial which advertised that silver prices are currently below production cost, it is on sale, and the time to buy is Now! Now! Now! And I wondered what the same company says to the people it was selling silver to a short time ago, when the price was much higher and they were also importuning them to buy it Now! Now! Now! Are...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today\’s quote – actually quotes, since there are a pair of them – comes to us from a man Wisconsin is very lucky to call its own:  Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke. Here is what Chief Clarke has to say – first, about the DOJ seconding Saint Louis\’s grand jury in bringing no charges against (now former) police officer Darren Wilson for his...

THE OBAMA FOREIGN POLICY DISASTER

Nobody – well, nobody sane – will accuse the Washington Post of being a right wing publication, or favoring Republicans, or being an enemy of Barack Obama. With that in mind, please read the following – the first, and last, paragraph of yesterday\’s editorial on the Yemen disaster and, more broadly, Barack Obama\’s overall foreign policy: INDEVOTING 250 of the 6,800...

THE MARCH THAT WASN\’T THERE

One year I looked upon D.C. And saw a march that didn\’t be. It didn\’t be on this year too If media were all we knew I concede my poetry is not original, and it is a little mangled/non-grammatical.  But I hope it gets the point across. Yes, there was a March For Life yesterday in Washington D.C., on the anniversary of Roe V Wade. Yes, Tens of thousands, maybe...

THE BELICHICK/BRADY BS-FEST

Did you catch the belichick/brady BS-fest? If not, here is a (paraphrased) summary for you: “Heck, we don\’t know a thing about those footballs that were deflated so it would be easier for a quarterback to pass them, a receiver to hold onto the passes, and our running backs not to fumble.  Who could have done such a thing?” If you believe this, you are beyond...

PRESIDENT OBAMA\’S PRIORITIES

The Middle East is exploding. Next month, Benjamin Netanyahu – Prime Minister of Israel, which is an epicenter of the Middle East – will visit the United States.  During that visit, he has been asked, by Speaker of the House John Boehner, to address a joint session of congress. But Mr. Netanyahu has not been invited to the White House.  And President Obama – in...

IS THIS THE REAL REASON OBAMA WILL NOT MEET WITH NETANYAHU?

As you may be aware, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has been invited by Speaker of the House John Boehner to address a joint session of congress in March. As you may also be aware, President Obama has declined to meet with Mr. Netanyahu.  The ostensible reasons are that Speaker Boehner breached protocol when he bypassed the President and did the inviting on his own…and that...

Today\’s quote comes to us from Fareed Zakaria, who hosts “Fareed Zakaria GPS” on CNN.  Here is what he had to say about the lineup of Fox News Channel hosts: – against which CNN competes, and loses big-time, all day and all night on weekends and evenings: “Wedon\’t hold Rupert Murdoch responsible for every crazy, radical, youknow, quasi-fascist...

THE STATE OF THE UNION SPEECH

What do you do when you, and your ideas, get massacred in a national election? Well, if you\’re Barack Obama, you just ignore what the people told you and make a speech promising more and more of the same things that generated the massacre. Excerpted from an editorial at Investors Business Daily: TheState of the Union speech supposedly was chock full of big, brassynew ideas to help the...

OBAMA AND ERNST

Lucky for Republicans most people don\’t watch the State Of The Union message/rebuttal, and most who do forget about them soon afterwards. Barack Obama, whatever you thought of the words themselves, was dynamic and compelling. Joni Ernst, by contrast, was robotic and monotonal, with a painted smile that made her look like a Barbie doll wannabe.  It is hard to connect last...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today\’s quote comes to us from Senator Robert Menendez (D-NJ), a man I have written disparagingly of in the past, based on his ethical issues. But not today. Click here to see/hear Senator Menendez dismantle a hapless Obama windbag, Antony J. Blinken, regarding the administration\’s unfailingly inept, incompetent and truly dangerous position (if you can call it one) on...

BALL-BUSTED

New England Patriots coach bill belichick has cheated before.  And, while I can\’t prove it in a court of law, it appears clear that he has cheated again. See, an underinflated football is easier to grip than a fully inflated on.  And that is of great benefit in a game played in rainy weather – like, for example, the League Championship game between belichick\’s...
