REVISITED: ETHAN COUCH – MORE EXCUSES FOR REALLY BAD BEHAVIOR

Two years ago, I published the article below about Ethan Couch who, while driving with a blood alcohol content of .24, killed four innocent people and severely injured two others.  As a result, the judge, who has since retired, Judge Jean Boyd – I hope you’re happy Judge Boyd — bought into the bogus defense […]

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 […]

Isn’t It Ironic?

It’s the Small Things That Drive Me Crazy!

Over the past several years, I’ve thought about the kids I graduated with from 8th grade in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.  We went to St. Stanislaus Kostka School together for nine years.  We all lived in the same neighborhood.  I don’t remember anyone whose mother wasn’t a housewife.  Every father worked.  Parents were not divorced.  No one […]

What’s Wrong With Some People?

My good friend, Joey, sent me this video entitled “On the Road:  Ohio boy pays it forward with found fortune.”  The reason I’ve posted it here is not because of the content of the video – it’s a soulful story about a father, his son, and a solider the little boy meets.  It speaks for […]

CALIFORNIA PRISON HUNGER STRIKE – SO WHAT’S IT REALLY ALL ABOUT?

On July 8th, a reported 30,000 prisoners started a hunger strike in California prisons, most in Pelican Bay State Prison.  At the end of the month, only about 600 inmates were still refusing two of their three daily meals.  This so-called “hunger strike” was the brainchild of convicted killer, Todd Ashker, a member of the […]

LET’S TALK SEX AND MAGAZINE COVERS

Last week a huge controversy broke out over the use of a particular photo of Boston terrorist, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, by Rolling Stone magazine.  A lot of people thought the use of that particular photo, showing a “sexy” Tsarnaev, rewarded him with “celebrity” status while I’m sure the lunatics who think this creep is innocent, loved […]

THE NEW MEANING OF JUSTICE

Since the day Trayvon Martin was shot, all I’ve heard are screams for “justice.”  What exactly does that mean? According to my dictionary, justice means, “n. 1.a. The principle of moral rightness; equity.  b. Conformity to moral rightness in action or attitude; righteousness.  2. The upholding of what is just, esp. fair treatment and due […]

AND THE WORST PARENT AWARD GOES TO….

When I read articles or online posts about people doing a horrible job raising their children, I can’t help but think we’re really circling the drain.  This great country is being overrun with uninformed, misinformed, stupid people who are breeding at an alarming rate.  Worse yet, many of them have no problem displaying their inadequacies […]
