Why No JFK 50th Anniversary Post? Why Celebrate Corruption?

Unless you are living under a rock, you’ll know that everyone is commemorating the 50th Anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. I have not posted a thing about it until now. Why? Because I don’t want to celebrate the corruption that is the Kennedy family and the failed President that is their […]

CNN Anchor Says Founding Fathers Would Support Obamacare Because ‘It’s a Law’ Or Something

CNN anchor Brooke Baldwin is aghast that Republicans would try to defund Obamacare and she is sure that the founding fathers would support Obama’s signature healthcare law because, well, “it’s a law.” During a September 19 segment of CNN Newsroom, Baldwin said, “Congress passes a law, in this case Obamacare, and then some of its […]

Obama Claims Vietnamese Communist Ho Chi Minh was “Inspired by the Words of Thomas Jefferson”

Last week the president of Viet Nam, Truong Tan Sang, visited US President Obama. One would think Sang’s presence in the Oval Office would be the closest the Communist would get to Thomas Jefferson, the author of America’s Declaration of Independence. You’d be wrong. In what will surely go down as another in a long line […]

Earlier this month the President of Emory University wrote a piece for the school magazine about the efficacy of compromise.

Birthday of a Giant: Where Have you Gone George Washington?

It is February 22nd, the birthday of our first President, George Washington. I don’t celebrate “President’s Day.” I celebrate the presidents individually, not the whole gaggle of them at once. But I most certainly don’t celebrate George Washington, the father of our country, as just another president. These days, George Washington has been relegated to […]

You can’t even eat turkey on Thanksgiving without being called a racist by our friends on the extreme left side of the aisle in America today, especially if you prefer the white meat over the dark.

Obama’s Constant BS About Thomas Jefferson and Islam

Every year he’s been in office, President Obama has hosted an “iftar dinner” to honor Islam in the White House. The President has also each time led his speech with the outlandish nonsense that Thomas Jefferson held the “first iftar dinner” in the White House. And every time it’s been utter hogwash. This year’s speech […]

Dear GOP, Let’s Not Waste Romney’s VP Pick on One of Our Best Guys, OK?

I don’t want Paul Ryan to be Romney’s Vice Presidential pick. I also don’t want Bobby Jindal, Chris Christie, or Marco Rubio to be picked. It’s not because I don’t like these guys, but because I do like them. It is precisely because they are good politicians, necessary politicians, effective politicians that I don’t want […]

The chief pilot for the mission, Brig. Gen. (res.)

Today America enjoys the celebration of 236 years of existence as a nation by noting the day we declared our independence from our Mother nation, England.
