DORIS AND MARLON

Apropos of nothing political, but fun to know… On Thursday, Doris Day, the great singer, actress and for many years animal rights advocate, celebrated her 90th birthday.  Ms Day was born on April 3, 1924.  Que sera, sera. And on that same day, April 3, 1924, the great movie actor Marlon Brando was born.  Nature made his mother an offer she couldn\’t refuse. Ok, back to...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today\’s quote comes to us from a great actor who usually is on the liberal/left side of things – Kevin Spacey. Mr. Spacey has taken a good look at what is going on in Venezuela, and – despite the love songs fellow actors like Sean Penn and Danny Glover sing to its government, he doesn\’t like it.  Not at all. Here is part of a statement he has just put up on his web...

JONAH GOLDBERG\’S DISMANTLING OF THE OBAMA TALKING POINTS

Jonah Goldberg is an excellent writer and an excellent analyst.  But his latest column is a step above. In it, he describes President Obama\’s latest campaign stop (does this man ever do anything but campaign…golf…and go on expensive vacations?) at the University of Michigan (yes, an adoring college crowd), where he spoke of eating at Zingerman\’s a local deli and...

ISRAEL PEACE PARTNER: REALITY CHECK

After a year of trying to resurrect a “peace process” between Palestinian Arabs and Israel, the White House is now telling us we need a “reality check”.  That, in and of itself, would be laughable, given the futility of resurrecting something which never truly existed in the first place.  But, this being the Obama administration, it of course goes...

ISRAEL PEACE PARTNER UPDATE

Israel has spent decades handing tangible concessions over to Palestinian Arabs\’ unelected leaders*, and getting noting tangible in return; only a series of promises which are then routinely broken.   Since most mainstream media – even media which occasionally make mention of how complete the disconnect is between what Palestinian Arab leaders promise and...

WHY IS MICHELLE HAVING NUNN OF BARACK OBAMA?

Suppose you are the daughter of a very popular former U. S. Senator from Georgia, now running your own campaign for that office?  The President of the United States is also the leader of your party, so you embrace the President in your campaign ads, right? Well, not quite.  In Michelle Nunn\’s case, she is embracing a President…just not this President.  Watch her...

OBAMACARE: ABOUT THAT ABC NEWS/WASHINGTON POST POLL…

What great luck for Barack Obama and his fellow Democrats!  Just as the “7 million” sign-up total is being debunked 8 ways from Sunday, a new ABC news/Washington Post poll comes out showing that approval of ObamaCare has taken a huge leap forward, from 40% approval/57% disapproval all the way up to 49% approval/48% disapproval.  This certainly puts to rest the issue of...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today\’s quote comes to us from someone you probably have never heard of; a former high school teacher named Kim Radersma. Ms. Radersma made the following comments at a “White Privilege Conference” (no, I did not make that title up) being held in Madison, Wisconsin – which is, in part, funded by taxpayer dollars. Here is a sampling of her wit and...

THE FORT HOOD SHOOTING

There\’s not much to say about this horrible shooting, other than – very small consolation here – the shooter (who is also one of the fatalities) appears not to have been a terrorist, but a soldier who served war zones and came back with very significant mental issues, which he was being treated for. Since facts are usually very elusive during the first days of this kind of...

THE SUPREME COURT RULING ON CAMPAIGN CONTRIBUTIONS

As you probably are aware, yesterday the United States Supreme Court struck down laws restricting the amount of money individuals can give to political parties and political action committees (PACs).  Limits on donations to individual politicians still remain, but, if yesterday\’s ruling is any indication, they may at some point be on the way out as well. Personally, I have a mixed...
