Spasms of a Dying Party

Jeff Flake, the whiney liberal Republican from Arizona, outdid himself when he recently lamented, “When you look at some of the audiences cheering for Republicans, sometimes you look out there and you say, ‘Those are the spasms of a dying party.’” Flake went on to say, “By and large, we’re appealing to older white men, […]

The Impossible Dream

A friend of mine was recently lamenting about his “impossible situation.”  I guess it’s all in the eyes of the beholder, because after listening to his detailed explanation of the facts, it appeared that his was an impossible situation with a lot of possibilities. Our discussion got me thinking about what, exactly, defines an “impossible […]

Charades

Watching the lies coming out of Washington — “tax reform,” “Russian collusion,” “sexual harassment,” to name but a few — reminds me of one of my favorite movies, Charade.  There’s a profound line in that classic that explains perfectly why lying is a way of life for politicians.  When Regina Lampert (Audrey Hepburn) asks Peter […]

The Human Machine

It’s a simple but important truth that abstract concepts such as universal principles, human nature, and philosophical insights are constants.  From Plato to Will Durant … from Epictetus to the Dalai Lama … from Montaigne to Eric Hoffer … the rules of life never change.  In a world of chaos and madness, it’s nice to […]

People of the Lie

I’ve written about The Big Lie many times over the years, and it’s more in evidence today than ever before in our nation’s capital.  Shock and disgust over sexual harassment in government, Hollywood, and the corporate world is a Big Lie.  Tax reform is a Big lie.  Social Security is a Big Lie.  Global warming […]

Here it is, Thanksgiving again.  I love Thanksgiving because it brings back a lot of great childhood memories — turkey, giblet gravy, mashed potatoes, five or six desserts … the Packers and Lions doing battle on our black-and-white television set … snow flurries … the long weekend … and, best of all, family. Most everyone […]

The Under-Water Myth

What do the Dirty Dems’ victories last Tuesday mean for the upcoming 2018 elections?  Answer:  NOTHING! First of all, New Jersey is a hopelessly blue state and Virginia has been moving rapidly in that direction for some time, which is why I have repeatedly warned readers that I was skeptical the race in Virginia was […]

Immigration’s False Premises

The Radical Left never tires of making bogus immigration arguments, all based on a major false premise and many false sub-premises as well.  The major false premise is that the purpose of immigration is to help those in other countries whom open-borders cheerleaders like to refer to as “your tired, your poor, your huddled masses […]

On Being Sincerely Wrong

I think it’s safe to say that nothing like the ugly verbal tirades aimed at President Trump by Senators Jeff Flake and Bob Corker has ever happened before in a major political party.  Can you imagine a couple of rogue Democrats trying a stunt like that aimed at Barack Obama?  They would have been banished […]

Will Populism Prevail This Time Around?

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.  […]
