KACI HICKOX: SELECTIVE HUMANITARIANISM

I congratulate nurse kaci hickox for her humanitarianism in going to West Africa and administering to people who contracted the ebola virus. But I condemn nurse kaci hickox for her lack of humanitarianism in coming home after doing so, with a fever (which is typical of people with the ebola virus), and then raising such holy hell about being quarantined that Governor Christie – with the...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today\’s Quote Of The Day comes to us from Peter Kirsanow, a member of the United States Commission On Civil Rights.  Here is what Mr. Kirsanow has to say about President Obama\’s promise (or threat, depending on how you see things) to bypass congress (thus the constitution of the United States) and unilaterally grant amnesty to millions of illegal aliens from...

A HALLOWEEN LAWN DECORATION TO REMEMBER

This picture of a Halloween lawn decoration comes to us from our pal P.R. Ann….and, though just possibly not in the very best of taste, I have to admit I laughed out loud. Maybe you will too: Too bad the Viagra didn\’t just lodge in his throat.  Then all he\’d have gotten was a stiff neck.

THE “HIS BROTHER WAS WORSE” ENDORSEMENT

Years ago, I watched a TV show which, among other things, had a group of comedians talking about each other. When Shelly Berman\’s name came up, one of them asked “Is there anything good you can say about this guy”. Everyone chuckled. And then Henny Youngman, who must have been nearing 90 years of age, suddenly blurted out “His brother was worse”.  The room...

DOES BARACK OBAMA WANT THERE TO BE AN EBOLA EPIDEMIC?

Think that title is over the top? Then let me ask you a few questions. Suppose you wanted there to be an ebola epidemic in the United States.  What would you do? Well, for one, you would make sure that people who want to travel here from places where ebola is killing people by the thousands, are not at all impeded in doing so. For another, you would demand that, when they come here...

A QUICK QUESTION ABOUT A CAR AD

Can anyone explain to me what that car commercial with some guy named Stan going into a store and everyone greeting him, followed by him going into the store and the same people who greeted him now ignoring him, followed by him getting into a car and driving, is supposed to be telling me – or why it should get me interested in buying the car? Do you even remember which car it is? OK...

THE CRUDE OIL PLUNGE

I don\’t know if it will last, but crude oil futures have dropped below $80 this morning. That, folks, is good news.  And it is almost entirely due to oil production from hydraulic fracturing (more commonly known as “fracking”), which – as I showed by presenting both sides last week – is a controversial technique of recovering shale oil. Now watch Barack Obama...

GOVERNOR CHRISTIE: A POSSIBLE RETRACTION

Earlier today I blogged about New York Governor Cuomo sandbagging New Jersey Governor Christie regarding the quarantines of people coming back to the USA from ebola-ravaged parts of West Africa. But, based on the following excerpt from an article at NBC News, I may have to retract the blog\’s commendation of Governor Christie for sticking to his mandatory quarantine edict: Thenurse...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today\’s Quote of The Day comes to us from Audie Cornish, co-host of National Public Radio\’s (NPR\’s) “All Things Considered” show.  As you are probably aware, information was leaked last week about the grand jury investigation of Michael Brown\’s shooting and killing by Ferguson, Missouri police officer Darren Wilson.  This included the...

EBOLA: SANDBAGGING GOVERNOR CHRISTIE

I hope New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is into continuing education.  Because, just yesterday, he got a lesson in political sandbagging from his next-door neighbor, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo. -On Friday, Governors Christie and Cuomo issued a joint statement that all doctors/other health care professionals who treated ebola patients in West Africa, and anyone else who...

COVERING FOR HILLARY. AGAIN

Yesterday I logged logged about a remarkable comment Hillary Clinton made while campaigning in Massachusetts for a Democrat gubernatorial candidate Martha Coakley. At that time, Ms. Clinton informed her cheering audience “Don\’t let anybody, don\’t let anybody, tell you that, uh, y\’know, it\’s corporations and businesses that create jobs.” Yes, you read that...

SCOTT WALKER: HOW MUCH TROUBLE IS HE IN?

Try and find a Governor who is more hated by public sector unions than Scott Walker.  I dare you. Remember those out-of-control “protests” against him – which were, in reality, a succession of mini-riots the police (also public sector union members) seemed to be pretty much ok with?  Remember the ugly, sick rhetoric?  Remember the recall election –...

DIM BULB DEBBIE STRIKES AGAIN

I try not to blog too often about the gaffes, and lies, of Debbie Wasserman Schultz (DWS).  It\’s too easy. Bit this one I can\’t let go. Earlier this week, while being interviewed by (Democrat-friendly) Mark Halperin of Bloomberg News and Morning Joe, DWS made the astonishing claim that President Obama was out there campaigning for Democrats in “competitive...

SHARYL ATTKISSON\’S NEW BOOK

Sharyl Attkisson was, for some 20 years, an investigative reporter at CBS.  But Ms. Attkisson was a problem to the CBS people…because, as a professional journalist, she was committed to reporting what her investigations uncovered rather than adjusting those stories to please the partisans who run the show there. So, over a relatively short period of time, Ms. Attkisson was...

THE BEST PIZZA RESTAURANT IN MONMOUTH COUNTY

Apropos of nothing political… The best pizza restaurant in Monmouth County, if you\’re asking me, is Luigi\’s in Lincroft. (Luigi\’s Famous Pizza, to be exact). The food is delicious – especially the pizza.  The portions are very large, the prices are very moderate, and the wait staff is excellent.  What more could you want? Just thought I\’d...
