ISRAEL HATRED AND THE HARD LEFT

Few things rally the hard left more than its hatred “winners”.  The working premise is that the losers are oppressed by someone and the winners must, therefore be oppressing them. And no country (other than possibly the USA – even there I\’m not sure) stirs hatred than Israel:  an oasis of freedom, democracy and achievement in an area populated by...

A GLAZED DONUT DRIVEWAY

Apropos of nothing political…. This morning, our entire driveway – not spots here and there, not most, but the entire driveway right to the street – has about a 1/4 inch glaze of ice on it.  Just like a glazed donut. If you walk on it like a penguin, you\’re pretty much ok.  Try walking with normal strides, and expect to be flat on your back. Driving?  Idle...

THE OBAMA ILLITERACY PROGRAM

Watch this video – which is simultaneously very funny and absolutely appalling – in which Mark Dice asks people to sign a petition supporting illiteracy – that\’s right, illiteracy.  And as you do, please keep in mind that every person who signs the petition can cancel your vote: Still wondering how someone like Barack Obama got elected?  Or what...

CNN\’S DISGRACEFUL HEADLINE

This is so repulsive I\’m sorry I read it after dinner. CNN is running a story on Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal right now.  Its headline is “Bobby Jindal: \’You mean I\’m not white?\'” What does that convey to you?  That Jindal, who is of Indian ancestry and relatively dark-skinned, is trying to pass as White? That he is ashamed of his skin color? Well...

HOLT\’S PLUS

Just a quick opinion on Brian Williams\’ (in my mind) inevitable replacement as anchor of NBC Nightly News. NBC has a tremendous asset in Lester Holt.  He is poised, personable, and – based on the wide range of assignments he has undertaken – versatile and adaptabhle. Mr. Holt been called on to fill in for Williams until the scandal of his apparent serial...

WHEN MOORE IS LESS…AND SHOULD BE NONE

I\’ll make this short and sweet. The U.S. Supreme Court ruled, this morning, that Alabama should not stop same-sex marriages from taking place. Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore – a devout Christian who believes homosexuality is a sin and, presumably, that people who engage in it will wind up in hell – has decided to help God along in this endeavor by directing that all...

THE BRIAN WILLIAMS OUSTER SHOW: PART THREE

Williams still hopes tosurvive, and is considering the timing and venue...

FROM THE ADMINISTRATION THAT DOES NOT INTERFERE WITH OTHER COUNTRIES\’ ELECTIONS…..

Remember that explanation of why President Obama would not meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu when he comes to the United States and addresses a joint session of congress? Remember that he said it would come too close to the Israeli elections, and he had a long-standing policy of not interfering in other countries\’ elections? Did you believe him?  Do you still...

THE INTREPID EXPERIENCE

What a great day we had today!! Our grandson loved the intrepid.  He was fascinated by the ship, the many planes on its flight deck, the fact that they could take off and land on that deck (with all of 250 feet to do so), he couldn\’t wait to get in the pilot\’s seat of every aircraft he was allowed on, and he was ecstatic about sitting, upside-down, in the Mercury space...

THE BRIAN WILLIAMS OUSTER SHOW: PART ONE

Excerpted from David Bauder\’s article for the Associated Press: NBCNews has assigned the head of its own investigative unit to look intostatements that anchor Brian Williams made about his reporting inIraq a dozen years ago, an episode that\’s ballooned into a full-blowncredibility crisis for the...

GAY RIGHTS AND GAY HATRED

If you read this blog, you certainly know my position on gay marriage.  For those of you who don\’t, I consider it a matter of personal choice and personal freedom.  My, your or anyone\’s sexual orientation is nobody\’s business but mine, yours or theirs.  And if two people of the same sex want to commit themselves to marriage, I wish them nothing but...

ROSIE O\’DONNYBROOK

Remember when Rosie O\’Donnell was referred to, by an adoring press as The Queen Of Nice? If so, you have an accurate memory.  And also a good one, since that has not happened for a long time. Ever since she decided to subordinate her considerable entertainment talents for politics and gay activism, Ms. O\’Donnell\’s career has been in a tailspin. The latest...

KITZHABER\’S LAST STAND (CONT.)

The clock is ticking louder for Oregon Governor John Kitzhaber. First it was The Oregonian, Oregons largest newspaper – and long-time supporter of Kitzhaber – calling on him to resign.  And now the Associated Press has taken it national. Excerpted from Jonathan J. Cooper\’s article: Oregon\’sgovernor is struggling to deal with allegations that his fiancee usedhis...
