EDUCATION PC GONE WILD

Let me begin by pointing out that we have two grandchildren – a 7 year old boy and a 4 year old girl (I could spend the rest of the day telling you how great they both are, but that is not the point of this blog, so I will move on). Both of them have no problem running around their house without clothes on.  Why?  Because, as young children, they have no sense that there is...

THE THREE MURDERED TEENAGERS: TWO STATEMENTS

The following is excerpted from a statement made jointly by Republican Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen and Democrat Rep. Ted Deutch, both of whom serve on the House Middle East Subcommittee: “Ifit is determined that Hamas is behind this horrific tragedy, (Abbas)must immediately break up the unity agreement between Fatah andHamas, a U.S. designated foreign terrorist...

WHERE ARE THE CONSTITUTIONAL DEMOCRATS?

Are there still Democrats who believe in the United States constitution?  Or are there only Democrats who obediently march with Barack Obama as he ignores it? I am sure that a good many Democrats are appalled by the actions of this President, who tells us “I have a pen and a phone” to communicate that he is the law, and “We can\’t wait” when he really means...

THE SUPREME COURT RULING: NOW\’S PERSPECTIVE

I just put on the TV for just a few moments at the top of the hour, to find out how the left is reacting to the Supreme Court\’s “Hobby Lobby decision”.  So, of course I tuned to (where else?) MSNBC. In those few moments, I caught Terry O\’Neill, current President of the National Organization for Women (NOW) telling us some things are so heinous that they...

THE HOBBY LOBBY DECISION

I just found out about the Supreme Court\’s ruling (5-4), that Hobby Lobby (and other companies) can say “no” to ObamaCare on the grounds that it offers contraception which go against the ownership\’s religious beliefs. I did not find this out on TV or the internet.  I found out via a call from an absolutely irate colleague and friend, who hoped...

DAMN THOSE BILLIONAIRE REPUBLI….OH, WAIT….

We\’ve all heard the talking points.  It\’s those rich, damn, billionaire Republicans, headed by those rich, damn, billionaire Koch brothers, who are trying to buy elections with all their rich, damn, billionaire money. And everyone knows it\’s true, right?  I mean, when have Barack Obama and Harry Reid ever lied to us? Well, politifact.com –...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Don\’t you love it when someone exposes his/her own BS? Today\’s quote comes to us from Julie Mason, veteran White House correspondent who, for the past 3 years, has hosted Sirius XM\’s “Press Pool”. Here is what Ms. Mason had to say during a panel discussion about intense press coverage of the IRS scandal (as she claims) or lack of coverage (as I, and the...

THE “STOP” IN STOPPING STOP AND FRISK

New mayor, new policy. Now that political chameleon Michael Bloomberg has ended his three-term stint as Mayor of New York and hard-left Bill de Blasio has taken over, New York no longer uses a “stop and frisk” strategy for keeping shootings down and taking guns off the street. Mr. de Blasio and his people believe that the policy was racist because it was disproportionately...

THE AQUAGRILL – A GREAT ANNIVERSARY DINNER

Last night, my beautiful bride and I celebrated our 45th wedding anniversary, by going to what we both consider the best fish/seafood restaurant in Manhattan:  the Aquagrill, at Spring Street and 6th Avenue (that\’s Avenue of the Americas to tourists and some younger-New Yorkers, but still 6th Avenue to New York-raised people our age). The food was, in a word, fabulous. For...

ILLEGALS: THE PELOSI DOCTRINE

If you want to know how the hard left feels about illegal immigration, ask a congressperson who represents a hard left district, and therefore has nothing to lose by telling you. Which brings us straight to Nancy Pelosi. Here are some of her exact words, after touring a Texas “facility” (if you can call it one) where the countless illegal children being run across the border...

VA SCANDAL UPDATE

Yesterday, the Obama administration “dumped” a highly embarrassing report about the condition of Veterans Affairs (VA) hospitals) – on the theory that this is when people are least likely to pay attention to it (in fairness, other administrations did the same thing). And what does the report say?  Here are the first paragraphs of the Associated...
