PASSOVER OVER

In just a few hours, Passover will pass over. Good thing, too. I don’t know how much more matzoh my stomach can take…not to mention my digestive and excretory tracts ( which, now that I think of it, you probably wish I had not mentioned.) A bowl of Linguini, with a buttered ciabatta roll on the side, should ease the transition nicely…

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote comes to us from billionaire financial mayven and three-time Mayor of New York City, Michael Bloomberg. This morning, Mr. Bloomberg gave a commencement address at the University of Michigan.  And he had something to say about “safe spaces” and micro-aggressions” that the student body – all of it, but especially seniors about to go out into the real...

HOW’S THAT TARGET BATHROOM THINGIE GOING?

I’ll make this short and to the point: On April 19th, Target, the country’s second-largest retailer, announced that the bathrooms in its stores were “anything goes” – i.e. men could use the women’s room, if they claimed to be transgender (no way to know, no way to tell for sure). Days later, a conservative, “traditional values” organization, the...

AS MEDIA TELL US ABOUT DONALD TRUMP’S HIGH UNFAVORABLES…..

….I thought you might be interested in Hillary Clinton’s as well. First let’s talk about The Donald.  According to the invaluable realclearpolitics.com web site, an average of every major poll about Mr,. Trump conducted from March 19th to the present time, shows him with 28.4% positive, versus 65.4% negative:  a difference of -37%. It doesn’t get much uglier than that...

THE PARAGRAPHS OF THE DAY

Our latest Paragraphs Of The Day winner is John Hinderaker, whose excellent commentaries can be found at powerlineblog.com. Here is how Mr. Hinderaker characterizes the Obama “recovery”…and how his supporters try – with considerable success among some population segments – to sell it as some kind of success: The manner in which Democrats assign credit and blame is...

THAT REAGAN ALZHEIMER’S MOVIE: THE REAL CULPRITS

My wife put on NBC’s Today Show this morning, and there was a report about the fact that will ferrell had backed out of a movie about Ronald Reagan and Alzheimer’s disease. The premise (unmentioned in NBC’s report) was that Reagan developed Alzheimers in his second term of office (a historical fraud) and an intern was assigned to get him through it by convincing Reagan that he...

MAKING THE USA MEXICAN

As I type this, the following picture, from one of the many protests by people of Mexican heritage who are in the USA legally and illegally, is shown on drudgereport.com’s web site:   Nice of those folks to use their children for this purpose. I have a question, though:  is this the same Mexico they left, legally or illegally, to come here?  If so – and if they want to...

THE JOYLESSNESS OF JOY BEHAR

Joy Behar is, among other things, co-host of the heavily leftward-liberal show, “The View”. In that capacity, I thought you might be interested in her take on will ferrell’s Reagan-has-Alzheimers “comedy” (which he has thought better of, but only after a massively negative reaction to it – not because he thought it was a bad idea). Here is part of what Ms...

A QUESTION FOR HILLARY CLINTON ABOUT THE EMAIL SCANDAL

Ms. Clinton: Since you lied to our faces about only having one smart phone (you had a blackberry, an Iphone and an Ipad to boot)… …and since you lied to our faces about whether there were classified emails on your server (there were well over 2,000 of them)… …and since you lied to our faces when you said you were  talking about emails specifically marked...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote, which is about the FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email machinations, comes to us from…. ….well, let me show you the quote first, and then we’ll talk about who said it and why. Here it is: “It’s an FBI investigation, and we want to let it go through without politicizing it and then we’ll find what the situation is. That’s how we still...

A FEW QUESTIONS FOR MEDIA, ABOUT THE TARGET BOYCOTT

As I assume you are aware, Target, the country’s second largest retailer, has implemented a policy whereby people of the opposite sex can use the rest rooms and fitting rooms which, until now, have been separated by sex.  The reasoning is that it enables transgender people to use bothrooms of the gender they believe they should have been instead of the gender they, in fact, are. As you may...

THE TWO PRO-TRUMP RALLIES

There were two Donald Trump rallies in Orange County, California last night. One of them was in the Orange County Amphitheater, where Trump spoke before a packed house.  It probably did not win very many votes, because the vast majority of attendees were already supporting him. The other was outside the amphitheater, where protesters, by their actions, probably won Mr. Trump a great many more...

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HATE AND COMEDY

What is the difference between hate and comedy? Well, in Hollywood the difference is that hate defines as anything aimed at anyone to the left of center, and comedy defines as anything aimed at anyone to the right of center. Want a case in point?  Here is a truly ugly one, via excerpts from Justin Kroll’s article in Variety: Having already famously portrayed former President George W...

DONALD TRUMP AND THE AP HEADLINE.

I’ll make this easy for you. First the headline from Bill Barrow’s article for the Associated Press: Trump’s mention of ‘woman’s card’ draws backlash That’s pretty clear, isn’t it?  Donald Trump is suffering the consequences of his comment.  Must have been pretty intemperate for the public to be so up in arms, right? Now the key...
