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...

FOR ANYONE WHO THOUGHT STEVEN COLBERT WAS AN EQUAL-OPPORTUNITY ATTACK DOG

Stephen Colbert\’s reign as a Bill O\’Reilly satirist – a long run of 9 years – is either over or in suspended animation.  Starting in May, he will be his actual self instead of the O\’Reilly satire, as David Letterman\’s replacement on The Late Show. There are people who, inexplicably, have conned themselves into believing Colbert went after both...

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...

ALAN GROSS, SCOTT GILBERT, JILL ZUCKMAN….AND CHE GUEVARA?

With a major hat tip to twitchy.com, here is a picture of Alan Gross putting together his statement to the press, with lawyer Scott Gilbert and spokesperson Jill Zuckman. Can anyone tell me why there is a picture of che guevara on the wall of where this was taking place?  Who holds the mass-murdering communist maggot guevara in such high esteem that he/she honors him this way? What...

ARE RACIST COPS THE REAL PROBLEM?

I am writing this blog to recommend two new commentaries:  one by syndicated columnist Larry Elder, the other by American Thinker (americanthinker.com) columnist Colin Flaherty. Both talk about the same subject:  race hustlers and the left, using the Michael Brown and Eric Garner deaths to push a “racist cop” routine….while ignoring the scourge of Black-on-Black...

THE PARAGRAPH OF THE DAY

This paragraph, from Florida Republican Senator Marco Rubio\’s statement about the “normalization” of relations with Cuba, not only stands as a clear, concise explanation of how idiotic and/or malevolent doing so would be at this time, but comes from someone who, as the son of Cuban refugees, knows all too well what castro\’s Cuba really is: “ThePresident\’s...

THE “NORMALIZATION” DEAL WITH CUBA

Let me get this straight. Cuba – still run by the castro brothers almost 56 years after their “revolution”, and still an abject disaster, falling apart at the seams – arrested and “convicted” Alan Gross for trying to provide internet access to Cuban Jews (an isolated and despised minority within what Sean Penn, Danny Glover, Michael Moore and numerous...

CONGRATULATIONS TO KIM JUNG UN

Congratulations, kim.  You\’ve done it.  Your guys\’ hacking of Sony Pictures, and threats to give us another 9/11 if any theaters show Sony\’s picture, “The Interview”, a comedy movie about you, have worked.  Sony is pulling it from theaters. Now you can go back to living it up with what little revenue comes into North Korea while your...

AN INTERESTNG IRONY

After a day of wild swings – first down, then up, then down again – West Texas Intermediate (WTI) Oil finished down today, closing at $55.93 Therefore, despite the desperate efforts of Russia\’s central bank to prevent it from happening, the ruble is still in rubble. I\’m sorry for the Russian people. But, then again, they are the ones who elected and re-elected...

MARTHA MCSALLY WINS THE RECOUNT

Congratulations to Martha McSally, who has just been officially declared the winner in Arizona\’s 2nd congressional district over incumbent Democrat Ron Barber.  The margin?  167 (six more than the original count). This means that Republicans, who went into the midterm elections with a solid house majority, have increased it by 13 more seats.  The final count is 247...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today\’s quote comes to us from a source I don\’t usually cite for positive reasons:  Senator Robert Menendez (D-NJ). But Mr. Menendez, who knows first-hand about who and what the Cuban regime is, has issued a statement about President Obama\’s “trade” of Alan Gross for three convicted Cuban spies, and his apparent determination to use this as a springboard...

THE RELEASE OF ALAN GROSS

Details about the sudden release of American Alan Gross after five years of imprisonment (and 10 more to go in his sentence) are sketchy right now which, to me, means they are almost certain to change. But what we do know is that Gross was convicted by what passes for a criminal justice system in Cuba of “Acts against the Independence and Territorial Integrity of the State”, for...

JEB BUSH 2016?

He was a popular Governor of Florida – a key presidential state. As Governor, he lowered taxes and significantly improved the state\’s education ratings He is neither a right wing Republican nor a RINO (Republican In Name Only)  – though people on both sides will try to make the case that he is. His wife is a Mexican national whom he met while teaching English...

OIL FUTURES

I don\’t know how long it will stay there, but Texas light crude oil is down another $1.36 and, as I type this, January contracts are trading at $54.52 a barrel. Far and away, the single biggest reason for oil futures dropping in half (literally – they were at about $108 a barrel this summer)?  Fracking – which President Obama very strongly, very publicly opposes. Now...

OBAMA\’S EXECUTIVE ORDERS…AND MEMORANDA: ANOTHER LIE

President Obama has spent years assuring us that, despite those crazy right winger tea party Republican no-nothings\’ claims, he has signed far fewer executive orders than just about any other President. I bet some folks, despite how many times he has lied to us in the past about a myriad of issues, believed him anyway. Whoops.  Bamboozled again. Let me take the opportunity to...
