During a recent interview on MSNB, the ever-nasty Tom Brokaw exclaimed that President Trump and “some people on the right” want “to destroy the prevailing culture in this country.” I hate to rattle your cage, Tommy, but of course Donald Trump and “some people on the right” want to destroy the prevailing culture in America.  […]

After an initial, kneejerk belligerence, NFL teams have shifted into damage-control mode and are doing everything within their power to make the ill-fated player protests fade quietly into the dustbin of history. When the money-hungry, toady team owners initially rushed to support their players, I was pretty certain they would change their tune once they […]

Now that everyone realizes that Trumpism is not just a passing fad but a clear and present danger to the D.C. Criminal Cartel, it’s time to examine just who the rank and file Trumpsters are.  What’s the common bond that unites them?  Taxes?  Healthcare?  Financial regulation? I thought about this question as I was rereading […]

Will the Real Donald Trump Please Stand Up?

Recent events have me wondering who, exactly, is Donald Trump?  Is he a man of conviction who stands on principle in the face of being labeled a bigot, white supremacist, and worse?  Or is he an unprincipled sellout who caves in to the Radical Left in order to curry favor with his enemies? Many of […]

While it’s true that we live in a rapidly changing world, it’s important to recognize that the daily changes we witness are changes in form only.  The real substance of our universe, and of life itself, is comprised of universal principles.  These principles, also known as axioms, truths, or natural laws, form the infrastructure for […]

Now that the Radical Left is in full control of the Democratic Party, it’s no surprise that spread-the-wealth advocates like Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris, and Cory Booker have jumped at the chance to co-sponsor Uncle Bernie’s single-payer healthcare bill.  All of them like to refer to it as “Medicare for All,” which takes an astonishing […]

Volumes having been written over the years on the subject of goals, and, indeed, there’s no question that goals are important.  But the more I reflect on the subject of goals, and the more I draw from my own experience and the experience of others, the more convinced I am that striving toward goals is […]

Don’t Be Evil

I will never forget when I first heard that Google had adopted “Don’t be evil” as its motto.  My first thought was:  Spare me the self-righteousness, please.  My second thought was that such a holier-than-thou statement could only come from a couple of immature kids who were infected with that horrific moral disease known in […]

Heroes are people who accomplish extraordinary feats under extraordinarily difficult circumstances, such as the firefighters who marched into the World Trade Center towers on 9/11 in an attempt to save lives while everyone else was scurrying to get out. But there’s another kind of hero — one who makes a living accomplishing extraordinary feats under […]

With the United States on the verge of civil war, all half-way informed people realize that there are bad times on the horizon.  I was writing about the probability of a runaway inflation and subsequent collapse of the foundations of Western civilization clear back in the late seventies, and I was far from alone in […]
