Almost two years ago, I wrote an article, “Drug Free for Free Money,” in which I applauded Florida Governor Rick Scott for requiring adults applying for welfare assistance to undergo drug screening. I thought it was a great idea and still do. But, then, I don’t wear a black muu muu. Immediately after the law [...]
In a recent column by Bill McClellan in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, he suggested, as a way to cut government spending, that we eliminate military funerals for all veterans except for those who died in combat. He states that buglers who play “Taps” make $24.50 per service and, although, not excessive, the government is just [...]
In July of 2008, then candidate, Barack Obama, was singing a whole different tune. On January 20, 2009, the day President Obama took office, the national debt was $10.6 trillion. Today, it’s $16.7 trillion. On this day, in 2017, it’s projected to be $22.2 trillion.
Hypocrisy – n. The practice of professing beliefs, feelings or virtues that one does not hold or possess; insincerity. While claiming his concern for America’s children, President Obama cancels White House tours instead of cutting the countless numbers of wasteful projects, grants, and studies that fail to benefit any American life.

Two years ago, Henrik Fisker got $529,000,000 (yes, that’s $529 million) in government loan guarantees to start up his electric car company. All the money hasn’t circled the bowl yet, but I’m predicting it will. Let’s start off with [...]
At the DNC, Julian Castro, Mayor of San Antonio, Texas, said Mitt Romney “doesn’t get it.” According to some, Mr. Romney doesn’t relate to the “little people” because he didn’t grow up like average folks. Well, so what? Mitt Romney comes from money, I don’t. I don’t want him to “get” my life; I want [...]
I saw a great photo on Facebook today. It read: APPARENTLY, I’M SUPPOSED TO BE MORE OUTRAGED BY WHAT MITT ROMNEY DOES WITH HIS MONEY THAT BY WHAT OBAMA DOES WITH MINE. I couldn’t say it any better.
I didn’t even know there was such a thing as “sparkly styling spray” for dogs (which “leaves the coat with specks of shiny glitter and aroma of candy cane”) but the members of Congress do. Yes, that’s right. If you haven’t guessed it, you and I are subsidizing these products/companies through farm legislation. Apparently, this [...]
