I See Dumb People

People never cease to amaze me.  Day after day, I read something about some nut job going crazy over the most ridiculous things. A guy was finally arrested after calling 911, not once, but five times, to complain that his iPhone wasn’t working properly.  Now that’s a real emergency. Another moron in North Carolina caused […]

Keep Your Clothes On….Please

Several weeks ago, I wrote an article about proposed legislation being introduced in San Francisco regarding naked dining.  Apparently, walking around SF is perfectly legal, and, fortunately, confined to the Castro District where old ugly guys seem to feel compelled to shed their clothes and walk around au naturel.  Yuck. Anyway, good news for every […]

GIVE SANDUSKY A MILLSTONE

I can honestly say, unashamedly, that before this week, I was probably the only person in America who didn’t know who Joe Paterno was.  The only professional football coach I could name is Tom Landry, and I only knew about him because he was so well dressed.  I know absolutely nothing about college football.  Neither […]

Down the Drain

I really wasn’t sure whether to post this under yesterday’s I See Dumb People or here under Down the Drain.  But this week’s prize goes to the Department of Justice in either case. The death penalty is legal in both Florida and Texas.  Notwithstanding that fact, this administration’s DOJ is anti-capital punishment and has given […]

Taxing Christmas Trees

I don’t know if you heard about the latest government proposal.  According to the Department of Agriculture, the government intended to impose a $.15 per tree charge on “producers and importers” of fresh Christmas trees, provided they sell or import more than 500 trees a year. Of course, no one in the administration is calling […]

Veterans Day – 2011

From a letter published in the Seattle Times last year: Today is Veterans Day.  It is a time for all Americans to pledge full support to our servicemen and women who honorably served their country; a time to covet the history and memories of those who dedicated their lives to the continuous struggle for peace. […]

Happy 236th Birthday to the United States Marine Corps

Happy Birthday to the United States Marine Corps.  God bless the brave men and women who serve in the USMC and continue to keep us safe. A little bit of history:  During the American Revolution, many important political discussions took place in the inns and taverns of Philadelphia, including the founding of the Marine Corps. […]

I See Dumb People

What do you get when you have an American drug dealer impersonating an illegal immigrant who’s deported and re-enters the U.S. with his legitimate passport – major dumb! In 2010, twenty-seven year old, Jaime Alvarado, was arrested for drug dealing and pled guilty to possession of cocaine and heroin with the intent to distribute.  Instead […]

PEDOPHILES – “MINOR-ATTRACTED PERSONS”

This past August, a Baltimore conference was sponsored by B4U-ACT, a group of pro-pedophile mental health professionals and sympathetic activists.  Yep, you read that correctly.  Their goal is to eliminate pedophilia from the list of mental illnesses in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), which is scheduled to undergo a significant revision […]

BITING THE HAND THAT FEEDS YOU

Back in July, I read that Republican Rep. Jeff Duncan inserted into the State Department and foreign operations authorization bill an amendment which prohibited any foreign assistance to governments that vote against the U.S. position at the U.N. more than 50 percent of the time. I thought it was a great idea.  Now, maybe I’m […]
