A Turn in the Road

Posted on June 25, 2016 by Robert Ringer Comments (49)

curve in the road

I believe in free will and man’s capacity to rise above adversity. I believe in accountability. I believe in the basic virtues upon which Western civilization has been built. But I also believe that people sometimes take a wrong turn in the road — perhaps inadvertently or maybe as a result of an ill-advised, impulsive […]

A Tsunami of B.S.

Are you ever irritated by what people say and do? By things you see and hear on television? By unpleasant situations you have to put up with on a daily basis? Guess what? You have lots of company. In fact, a number of books have been written on the subject. Two of my favorite examples […]

Does Orlando End the Debate?

Posted on June 14, 2016 by Robert Ringer Comments (84)

Clockwise starting at topleft:  Glock G22, Glock G21, Kimber Custom Raptor, Dan Wesson Commander, Smith & Wesson Air Weight .357, Ruger Blackhawk .357, Ruger SP101, Sig Sauer P220 Combat.

I’m tempted to say that the Orlando tragedy finally puts an end to the debate about whether guns should be easier or harder to get. In the words of Fat Al, a logical mind coupled with a spirit of goodwill would declare unequivocally that “the debate is over.” But given the shortage of both logical […]

Customer Service Is a Mindset

do-I-enjoy-customer-service

Some years ago, I was having lunch with a business associate at a fine restaurant. The food was superb, but when you pay eighty bucks for lunch for two people, you also expect great service. When the waitress brought our appetizers, I asked her to please give me some cracked pepper on my salad. Though […]

Last week I paid a visit to my orthopedic doctor (“Dr. Rasheed”), whom I hadn’t seen in years. He’s a friendly little chap with a name I’ve never been able to pin to a nationality. I told him I thought maybe he was Jewish when I first met him some years ago, because I vividly […]

First it was the infamous Duke rape case. Then it was Trayvon Martin’s death, followed by Michael Brown’s being shot six times and left lying dead in the middle of the street in Ferguson, Missouri. Lots of protests and riots, but, in the end, the truth came out in court in all three cases. Now, […]

Rules No. 1 & 2

health

In a radio interview some years ago, the host started out by asking me, “In order of importance, what would you say are the three most essential rules when it comes to making money?” Without hesitation, I blurted out: “Rule No. 1: Stay alive. Rule No. 2: Stay healthy. Rule No. 3: Stop losing money.” […]

The John Miller “Scandal”

trump

Here I go again giving Donald Trump free advice. This time it involves Trump’s being accused of acting as his own publicist under the pseudonym “John Miller.” Wow! Stop the presses — this is big. Not as big as Hillary the Horrible using her private slush fund (a.k.a. “the Clinton Foundation”) to sell State Department […]

The Creation of a “Transgender” Problem

Bathroom-gender-sign

I have a feeling that most people don’t really understand what the transgender bathroom issue is all about. Obviously, it has nothing whatsoever to do with “civil rights.” In reality, it’s nothing more than part of an overall radical-left strategy to create civil unrest. (Yes, the Cloward-Piven strategy to collapse the welfare system and precipitate […]

Mario and Me

Mario_Puzo

Mario Puzo, who passed away in 1999, wrote a number of bestselling novels, including The Godfather, Fools Die, and The Last Don. What I especially liked about Puzo was his legendary tongue-in-cheek interviews. One of my favorite Puzo comments was when he warned aspiring scriptwriters that the only way to get a fair deal in […]
