Memorial Day – 2016

What’s It Going to Take?

It’s been a couple of months since the Brussels terrorist attack but I wrote this article back in March when the attack occurred.  The wifi connection on our cruise ship was very slow and it would’ve been impossible to post it at that time.  Bernard Goldberg (www.bernardgoldberg.com), however, did post it on his website.  It […]

Armed Forces Day

President Dwight D.Eisenhower, 1953:  “It is fitting and proper that we devote one day each year to paying special tribute to those whose constancy and courage constitute one of the bulwarks guarding the freedom of this nation and the peace of the free world.”   The Honorable Melvin Laird, 1972 Former Secretary of Defense:  “At […]

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

I would like to take this opportunity to wish each and every one of you a very Merry Christmas.  For the past couple of years, I’ve thought of writing something new for Christmas but I haven’t come up with anything more important at this time of year than to acknowledge and recognize the sacrifice that […]

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 […]

WHEN IT COMES TO DONALD TRUMP, PEOPLE HEAR WHAT THEY WANT TO HEAR

Yes, it’s true. People only hear what they want to hear. Mr. Trump’s recent remarks prove my point perfectly. What Mr. Trump said in South Carolina: “Donald J. Trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country’s representatives can figure out what the hell is going […]

ISIS – THE LEFT’S DOUBLE STANDARD OF POLITICAL CORRECTNESS

There’s a lot about the left in this country I just don’t get. One of the things the left insists upon, which I really don’t get, is the obsession with “political correctness.” You’re not allowed to say anything if it will offend, or potentially offend, any other human being. You can’t fly a flag on […]

THE GOVERNMENT’S WAY OF DOING THINGS

I HATE big government. If there’s an easy way to do things or a hard way, the government will always choose the more difficult and complicated. Here’s a perfect example. When my husband signed up for Medicare four years ago, he opted not to enroll in a prescription plan because he wasn’t taking any prescriptions […]

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 […]

NOW CAN WE MOVE ON TO REALLY IMPORTANT ISSUES

Once again, the Supreme Court failed to exercise “judicial restraint” and opted to actively legislate from the bench by deciding that homosexuals have a “right” to marry in the case of Obergefell v. Hodges. Five unelected lawyers decided to do away with our democratic process and power of our legislatures and redefine the word “marriage” […]
