Cults of Personalities

Filed under: Religion & Faith - 28 Apr 2008

I had to jump on this one. As a teenager, I attended summer camp with actor Jason Beghe, and we were members of a loosely-knit camp clique for a time thereafter. I actually made some lifelong friends through that experience, …

Jimmy Carter: Citizen Traitor

The political left in America is like a deranged passenger on a jetliner who repeatedly attempts to storm the flight deck and crash the plane, but who the crew and other travelers are limited in their ability to restrain due …

Put a Shine on This, Madam Speaker

Our inimical lich of a House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was at it again last week, subtly sabotaging our military’s efforts in Iraq, potentially demoralizing and compromising our troops in a transparent election year political ploy. On April 4, Pelosi admonished …

What a Tangled Web We Weave

Last Friday, on the ABC talk show “The View” – about as softball a venue as one can get – presidential hopeful Barack Obama indicated that he would have left Chicago’s Trinity United church had the militant, anti-American pastor Reverend …

The Candidate and Reverend Wrong

It’s been a little over a year since my column “Obamination” originally appeared in this space, but the disturbing nature of Democrat presidential hopeful Barack Obama’s relationship with his pastor Reverend Jeremiah Wright finally made it into the mainstream press …

Calling a Spade a Spade

Shame on anyone who thought the title might be a racial epithet referring to Democrat presidential hopeful Barack Hussein Obama, by the way. No, this suggests common usage of the idiom, the imperative for America’s awakening to the fact that …

Banks Stick Foreigner-Scammed Consumers

Filed under: What The F@#K?!? - 12 Mar 2008

In December of 2007, someone close to me was contacted by a company that had come across their resume on one of the large Internet job sites. They were contracted for a short-term project that ended in mid-January 2008. Toward …

Is it Because He’s Black?

Filed under: Elections & Voting - 29 Feb 2008

Just how much – if such a thing can be reliably quantified – relating to the presidential campaign of Barack Obama can be traced to his ethnicity? Some might assert that everything – or nearly everything – apropos the …

A Castrated Nation

If there was ever an election cycle in which the issues (at this juncture, really weighty ones) took a back seat to pomp and circumstance – or, if you prefer, hype and flatulence – this one is definitely it. …

You Don’t Know What You Don’t Know

Filed under: History,Liberalism, Marxism & Communism - 19 Feb 2008

I considered titling this column “Where Are We Going and How Did I Get in This Handbasket?” but decided it would have been a bit unwieldy. The term “Bolshevik” was derived from a Russian word that means “majority;” the …

The Lesser of Two Weevils

First, I suppose I ought to explain the irony of the analogy I propose: Weevils, of the insect family Curculionidae, include approximately 40,000 species (Encyclopædia Britannica), but the most common association relates to those species which typically feed on grain.

Doing The Mideast Peace Shuffle

Geopolitics is such a complicated subject, you see, far beyond the comprehension of the average American. Those whom destiny has ordained to ameliorate the world’s geopolitical woes are far more insightful and inherently capable that you or I could ever …

Obama Gets Gold in Skating

A rather timely occurrence transpired just the other day: Apparently, since the Iowa caucuses people are trying to secure everything on one Barack Hussein Obama that they can get their hands on. A gentleman who had stumbled upon my column …

Cultural Cavemen & The Wimps of the West

Lest I wind up standing back-to-back with actor Will Smith tomorrow morning defending myself against flying produce (Smith is taller, so I might not fare too badly), I’ll insert the disclaimer here: My personal, moral and religious values preclude a …

It’s a Grinch Thing

Filed under: Featured Conservative,Religion & Faith - 31 Dec 2007

Two thousand years ago, a man was born in Judea (a region of modern-day Israel). During three years of His adult life He preached a social philosophy similar to what many might call “The Golden Rule.” He gained a large …
