Citizens Against Government Waste – Porker of the Month

I encourage anyone interested in how wasteful our government is with our money to check out the website of Citizens Against Government Waste.  Here’s their latest update: “In celebration of St. Patrick’s Day earlier this month, and in recognition of the potfuls of taxpayer gold that have been squandered on subsidizing ill-advised green energy programs, […]

Rewarding Incompetence

A year after a major financial scandal hit Seattle involving the Seattle Public Schools, two top officials canned have landed lucrative jobs elsewhere. Former Superintendent, Maria Goodloe-Johnson, is now the top academic officer for the Education Achievement System in Detroit and former Chief Financial Officer, Don Kennedy, moved across country to Connecticut who is temporarily […]

What We Can Expect

The Supreme Court has started hearing oral arguments this week on the constitutionality of ObamaCare. Of course I’m hoping that the whole thing will be thrown out on constitutional grounds, particularly because, although Constitutional Law was not my favorite course in law school,  I still can’t figure out how the federal government can force us […]


It seems every time I turn around, someone is telling me what to do.  I’m supposed to use some sort of “clear” detergent for my clothes; a particular type of soap for my dishes; PETA tries to tell me what to wear and what not to eat; Michelle Obama is telling what to eat and […]


I think American Idol jumped the shark when Simon Cowell left the show.  We’re now left with Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez and Randy Jackson who are nothing more than cheerleaders with limited vocabularies.  I’ve often thought of sending them a thesaurus because Steven’s raves are limited to, “you’re beautiful, man” and Jennifer knows no other […]

Plastic Surgery for Teachers – And We’re Paying!

After hearing this story, you would think that the Buffalo Board of Education is flush.  Not so.  It’s actually projecting a $42 million deficit in the next year’s school budget. Yet, it hasn’t negotiated a contract with the Buffalo Teachers’ Union for nearly a decade and, as a result, the 3,400 teachers continue to enjoy […]

How Dumb Is This?

Last week, the NAACP presented the United Nations Human Rights Council with its case against the United States voter ID laws, arguing to the international diplomats that the requirements disenfranchise voters and suppress the minority vote. According to the report I read, “eight states have passed voter ID laws in the past year, voter ID […]

Barack Obama recalls Rutherford B. Hayes

Last week, our President decided to chide the Republicans, as usual, for not embracing his “clean, green energy” agenda and made reference to the alleged backwards thinking of our former President, Rutherford B. Hayes. President Obama said, “One of my predecessors, President Rutherford B. Hayes, reportedly said about the telephone: ‘It’s a great invention but […]


I’ve written before about the results and consequences facing children who are born out of wedlock.  The whole “I don’t need to be married in order to have a child” lifestyle, encouraged by the example of numerous celebrities who the media glorify, will continue to have an enormous negative impact on society.  Legitimate studies already […]

Who Thought Oneal Ron Morris Was a Doctor?

I’m going to go out on a limb right now and guess that if anyone of you walked into a doctor’s office and saw this woman in a white coat posing as a doctor you’d walk out as fast as you could and never look back.  Am I wrong? Let me introduce you to 32-year […]
