THE NANNY STATES OF AMERICA

Minnesota, like so many states, is facing a harsh reality.  On July 1st, the government shut down and each side began blaming the other for failing to pass a budget that would solve the $5 billion deficit. What caught my attention was the story of Sonya Mills, a 39-year-old mother of eight children – six […]

EASTER BUNNIES BETTER BEWARE

Not content with attacking Christmas and changing the name of our decorated trees to “holiday trees” along with a whole lot of other stuff associated with Christmas, the PC loons are at it again – but this time they’re after – hold on to your seats – Easter eggs! I’m not joking. While Easter is […]

AM I SURPRISED?

Probably not. In years past, I’d think this was a pretty funny story, but, today, as the nation is on the brink of a fiscal disaster, I’m not laughing. A California Democratic lawmaker was lamenting the idea of having to possibly give up her salary if the government actually shutdown last week. Yep, on a […]

THE COARSENING OF AMERICA

  Ever since the Tucson shootings, we’ve heard about civility ad nauseum. Everyone has been calling for civility including the President at the memorial service in Tucson and during his State of the Union address. We heard a lot about civility after 9/11 as well. People were kinder to each other – more polite, more […]

DIVERSITY TRAINING = SPAM

As far as I’m concerned, diversity training is like spam.  Too many people get and nobody wants it. I recently read that the U.S. Agriculture Department has hired a consulting firm to advise it on “diversity” matters.  Agriculture Secretary, Tom Vilsack has “taken a number of actions to make his department more sensitive to civil […]

POLITICAL CORRECTNESS ABOUNDS

When did all this happen?  When did “gentlemen’s club” replace strip joint?  Strippers are now “exotic dancers.”  “Noncitizen defendants” is the inoffensive way of saying criminal illegal aliens.  When someone’s tax credit exceeds the amount he pays in federal income taxes, the money received is now called a “tax refund” instead of welfare.  Panhandlers are […]

POLITICAL CORRECTNESS: THE 21ST CENTURY BULLY

You may recall the early Charles Atlas advertisements.  The typical scenario presented a skinny young man (usually accompanied by a female companion) being threatened by a bully. The bully pushes down the “97-pound weakling” and the girlfriend joins in the derision.  This embarrassment makes the young man go home and order the Atlas book on […]

NANCY PELOSI: CAFETERIA CATHOLIC EXTRAORDINAIRE

There’s a lot about Nancy Pelosi I don’t get.  First, I have no idea how this woman got to be where she is today.  It’s frightening to me that she’s actually second in line to the Presidency (after Joe Biden).  If the Republicans win back the House in November, I’ll be absolutely thrilled that she’ll […]
