LEGAL GUARDIANSHIP IN ILLINOIS – ANOTHER WAY OF GAMING THE SYSTEM

There are ways to pay less taxes because of loopholes in the Tax Code; people con their way into getting food stamps; many people receive disability payments with fake disabilities; others receive government funds for taking care of their own family members; recent headlines involved students cheating on college entrance exams and parents bribing athletic […]

MARIO LOPEZ – THE LATEST TARGET OF THE PC POLICE

Every day someone is being attacked by the PC police.  The mantras from these Far Left loons are either “you’re a racist,” “you’re a homophobe,” “you’re a misogynist” and it goes on and on.  The majority of people today are afraid to express any innocuous opinion they may have because they’re afraid of offending someone.  […]

IT ALL BEGAN WITH “MANKIND”

I think it all began with the word “mankind.”  Someone woke up one day in the 80’s and thought the English language needed some tweaking.  Somehow the use of the word “man” in “mankind” was considered exclusive and needed to be more gender-neutral like “humankind.”  I’ve always found the use of the word “humankind” to […]

MY LAWYER SAID I DIDN’T DO IT

When I read the story of the little 18-month old who fell 11 decks to her death from a cruise ship, I was horrified.  I chose not to have children so I couldn’t even begin to imagine the loss felt by her parents.  The initial reports said the baby was accidentally dropped by her grandfather […]

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 […]

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 […]

31 GENDERS – NEW YORK CITY 2016

I like to keep things simple.  There was a time, in the not too distant past, when girls were girls, boys were boys.  Girls had girl parts and boys had boy parts.  They grew up and women continued to have vaginas and men continued to have penises.  There were males and there were females.  Period. […]

THE BIAS-FREE LANGUAGE GUIDE-GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN

I often wonder what type of person wakes up in the morning wondering, “What will offend me today?” Well, I found out this week. The Bias-Free Language Guide was written and edited by Sylvia Foster, Szu-Hui Lee, Joelle Ruby Ryan, Sean Moundas and the Women’s Commission members in the 1990s who drafted the “Guide to […]
