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 […]

ELECTION AFTERMATH: SNOWFLAKES MELTDOWN

So, less than twenty-four hours after the election was called in Donald Trump’s favor, and after speeches by President-Elect Trump, Hillary Clinton and President Obama asking the country to unite, college students took to their campuses to whine about the outcome. The Wall Street Journal’s headline reads:  “Colleges Try to Comfort Students Upset by Trump […]

WHAT ARE STUDENTS LEARNING IN SCHOOL THESE DAYS?

Well, in my opinion, at George Washington University, not much. A few weeks ago, the Young America’s Foundation, interviewed some students there, and the video shows the results. Only 6 out of 30 students knew that we’d be commemorating 9/11 the following week. How could any 18-22 year old NOT know about 9/11? My 6-year […]

Bacon is Now Offensive

This is a perfect example of how political correctness has run amok in this country.  One person is “offended” by something, so the rest of us – who are in the vast majority – have to cowtow to that one person.   We see it everyday in other situations where a small minority of people, such […]

WHERE CHILDREN SHOULD PEE – IS THAT REALLY A GOVERNMENT PRIORITY

America is facing a whole lot of problems and the bozos in government don’t know how to set priorities.  For example, there are certain things that affect all of us as Americans.  Our almost 17,000,000,000,000.00 national debt, unemployment, the ever-rising welfare state, the IRS targeting select groups of citizens, the killing of four of our […]

SANFORD AND WEINER – I KNEW THEY’D BE BACK

When both of these guys left public office a few years back, like cockroaches who’ll survive nuclear war, I knew we hadn’t seen the last of them.  I was right.  Former Republican Governor Mark Sanford of South Carolina was just elected by a landslide to his old House of Representatives seat and Democrat Anthony Weiner, […]

Dr. Brian Russell’s Analysis of the National Conventions

If you’re unfamiliar with Dr. Brian Russell, I suggest you check out his blog.  Here’s what he had to say following two weeks of speeches. “After enduring two weeks in a row of them and being asked to provide my overall comparative analysis, here it is, in terms of “Party A” and “Party B”: The […]

NO THANKS TO THE GOVERNMENT

Very recently, the President said the following: “If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help.  There was a great teacher somewhere in your life.  Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive.  Somebody invested in roads and bridges.  If you’ve got a business, […]

Will the Real Barack Obama Please Stand Up?

Many years ago, there was a television program called “To Tell the Truth.” Three challengers were introduced, all claiming to be the central character. The announcer typically asked the challengers, who stood side by side, “What is your name, please?” Each challenger then stated, “My name is [central character’s name].” The host then read aloud […]

ABORTION AND POLITICS

I recently read a article by Marcia Pally, author of The New Evangelicals: Expanding the Vision of the Common Good,” in which she discussed abortion and politics.  Although she opines that evangelical opposition to abortion is firm, the evangelical vote is not fixed and many evangelicals were happy with Democrat wins.  Since the mid-term elections, […]
