VERMONT\’S SINGLE (NON) PAYER DEBACLE

I am old enough to remember when Vermont was one of the most reliably Republican states in the country. That, of course, was before the yuppie sprawl from New York and Massachusetts.  Now it is the state, U. S. Senate-wise, of leftist Patrick Leahy, self-described socialist Bernie Sanders….and a serious attempt by its current Governor to implement...

NORTH KOREA\’S THREAT

Now that President Obama has told us there will be consequences for North Korea\’s hijacking of our freedom of speech, because it didn\’t like an unflattering portrayal of the deranged lunatic kim jung un it has reacted by….cowering?  Apologizing?  Promising to be more responsible in the future? Nope.  The state of President Obama\’s credibility is such...

THE COP KILLER, THE SHARPTON ROUTINE

The “man” who killed police officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos was named ismaaiyl brinsley.  The fact that, at 29 years of age, he had a rap sheet longer than the Amazon River but was, again, out of jail, is a sick statement on our criminal justice system. He apparently murdered his girlfriend in Baltimore before taking a bus to New York City to murder police officers –...

THE RACIAL MESS IN NEW YORK CITY

Before Eric Garner died in a physical confrontation with New York City police, the tension between the NYPD and Mayor Bill de Blasio was thicker than thick.  Police felt that de Blasio was no fan of theirs, but someone who thought they had to be reined in – someone who saw them as guilty until proved innocent. These tensions soared after the Garner death.  Police saw de...

SONY CEO MICHAEL LYNTON AS AN UPSET, AGGRIEVED PARTY

CNN has an article on one of its web sites in which Michael Lynton, CEO of Sony Entertainment, hits back at President Obama for his criticism that Sony made a mistake by pulling “The Interview” without talking to him first. Given that Michael Lynton apparently feels, that as the guy in charge, he is an upset, aggrieved party, I decided to check and see whether Mr. Lynton is...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today\’s quote comes to us from President Obama – by virtue (talk about an inappropriate description) of his dismissive little lecture to Sony yesterday.

Excerpted from Dave Boyer\’s article at washingtontimes.com: TheWhite House vowed a “proportional” response Thursday to NorthKorea\’s suspected hacking of Sony Pictures, as...

THE PARAGRAPH OF THE DAY

Today\’s paragraph comes to us from Michelle Malkin\’s latest column, in which she (more than justifiably) attacks Michelle Obama for turning a cute little incident (assuming it even happened) from years ago into a racial paradigm today – just in case racial tensions weren\’t high enough already. Here is how the incident was portrayed by Ms. Obama during a late-night TV...

SCHOOL SADISM

Suppose you had an eight year old child, who was blind and relied on a cane to get around. Suppose he acted up in a school bus, by tossing his cane in the air while listening to his music – not at anyone, but in the air. What would you expect the driver to do about it?  Maybe take the cane away for the rest of the ride and then report his behavior?  If that is what happened, this...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today\’s quote comes to us from Ed Schultz, the take-no-prisoners left winger on MSNBC….er, who was a take- no-prisoners right winger first, but changed over because he wasn\’t succeeding at it. Mr. Schultz sees a parallel between President Obama\’s intention to “normalize” relations with Cuba and President Reagan\’s efforts to free USSR-dominated East...
