SILENCING THE OPPOSITION

  For the Left in this country, free speech doesn’t matter.  Opposing views need to be silenced.  Period.  Although we hear all the time, “let’s have a national conversation,” the Left really doesn’t want to hear anything other than their own voices. The latest case on point surrounds the recent shooting at the Marjory Stoneman […]

GUN CONTROL AND THE LEFT’S CONTINUED PREDICTABILITY, HYPOCRISY AND DISREGARD OF EVIL

  I wouldn’t bet we’ll have three straight days of sunshine here in the Pacific Northwest, but I’d always bet on the Left’s predictability, hypocrisy and disregard of evil when it comes to mass shootings.  The Left’s knee-jerk reaction will always be more “gun control.”   Whether it is the Sandy Hook shooting, the Las […]

CAN WE LEGISLATE EVIL?

If you don’t believe evil exists, you might as well stop reading and continue to believe that gun control will cure all of society’s ills.  I wrote about this at the time of the Sandy Hook shooting, and I’m writing again because the left doesn’t seem to get the point. Having worked as an attorney […]

PICK A BETTER COUNTRY

I stole this title from Ken Hamblin’s very fine book because I couldn’t come up with a better title that would fit this post. I thought of calling it “I’m Sick And Tired Of A Bunch Of Overpaid Millionaire Testosterone-Driven Malcontents Who Wear A Uniform And Throw Around A Football For A Living Showing Disrespect […]

WHY I HATE/DISTRUST THE PRESS

Way before Donald Trump became President, I had a dislike and mistrust of the press.  A boss of mine, back when I was a legal secretary, who was one of dozens attorneys involved in the Getty estate, told me, “Never talk to the press.  They’ll always get it wrong.”  Solid advice. Years later, when my […]

MY RANT OF THE WEEK: CONGRESS

Sometimes I wish I was clueless.  Indifferent.  Uninformed.  Unfortunately, for me, I am none of these things.  And my poor husband has been subjected to my ranting all week about what’s been happening in Congress.  He is a saint. All week, I’ve watched Senators posturing, sermonizing, feigning concern for the American people and grandstanding. I […]

IS THIS WHAT DIVERSITY IS ALL ABOUT?

Let me start off by saying that I’ve come to the point where I hate the word “diversity.”  When I worked in the Los Angeles Dependency Court in the 90s, we were subjected to lunchtime speakers who lectured us about diversity – blacks, women, Native Americans, gays – you name it and we had to […]

CHARLIE GARD, POPE FRANCIS AND THE PONTIFICAL ACADEMY FOR LIFE

I was listening last week to Glenn Beck discussing the Charlie Gard situation with Bill O’Reilly.  During the conversation, Glenn asked Bill if he had read the “official statement” from the Pope.  Neither Bill nor I had read the actual statement.  The Pope apparently said this was a “complicated matter” and the wishes of the […]

IS HEALTHCARE ON LIFE SUPPORT?

Congress has an abysmal approval rating of about 20%.  There are dozens of reasons for this rating.  Right now, my disapproval with Congress stems from the chaos in Washington over healthcare. Obamacare is imploding.  It’s up to the Republicans to repeal and replace it.  I know the Democrats will say NO to anything the Republicans […]

SACRIFICE IS NOT FACELESS

I wrote the following article in 2010 as a tribute to my Goddaughter, Jeannine, and to honor her husband, Jeremy, who was at that time in Afghanistan waiting patiently to return to the States to spend the Christmas holidays with his wife and two beautiful children.  Well, Christmas 2010 came and went.  Jeremy returned to […]
