Debriefing Santa Claus

Today we celebrate Christmas Day — or Jimmy Buffett’s birthday if you’re more into being a Parrothead than into religion. Better yet, throw on a tropical shirt, put on that “A1A” album and open some presents. After all, the jolly old elf Santa Claus put a lot of work into circumnavigating the Earth last night in search of good little boys and girls to leave presents under the tree. Unfortunately, Santa is an unusually foul mood today. I caught up […]

It’s so easy to confuse Mitt Romney with Dr. John

There is a major problem in the United States that no one addresses. As a pseudo-journalist whose name has yet to appear on President Trump’s enemies list, it falls upon to me to address this very serious issue. I know I’m not on the list because former FBI Director James Comey did not bring it up during his appearance on “The View.” (Or was I was watching Lurch on “The Addams Family?”) Anyway, this major problem is from the world […]

Snowflakes are getting a bum rap

(See chart below) Folks on the left like to throw out […]

Disappointing choices for 2016

For the record, I’m not a Democrat or a Republican. I doubt I’ll ever be either one. I was a bit of an unofficial young Republican in my youth, swayed by the idealism of Ronald Reagan. Now, I’m an independent swayed by the idealism of Bernie Sanders. While I find myself against many items on the GOP agenda, I also find myself repulsed by the Democratic Party’s shenanigans throughout this primary season. I’m not a #BernieOrBust guy, though. As much […]

Sarah Silverman says it best

I find it somewhat ironic that Hillary Clinton’s clinching of the Democratic nomination will likely be the result of dominance in states like South Carolina, Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana and other Southern states that Republicans will easily win in November. Meanwhile, Bernie Sanders does much better in states where the Democrats can actually contend in November. In other words, Hillary has built her huge advantage with states that are irrelevant in the general election — not exactly what I’d want if […]
