A couple of years ago I gave a speech in the Cayman Islands and my son accompanied me on the trip. On the day of our arrival, we had lunch at the hotel’s outside café, and it was especially enjoyable because our waitress was an intelligent, pretty young lady with an engaging personality. She introduced […]

Trump Head Fake or Con Job on His Supporters?

Posted on November 29, 2016 by Robert Ringer Comments (53)

Donald Trump’s supporters were feeling giddy with excitement right after his electrifying win over the Face of Evil, which well they should have.  After all, with their support, he succeeded in depriving Barack Obama of a third term via a Hillary presidency. But in less than two weeks, Trump managed to raise the eyebrows of […]

Why the Radical Left Never Learns

Many everyday citizens are perplexed as to why the Radical Left is resorting to violence to protest the outcome of a democratically held election. And I’m perplexed as to why anyone would not understand why the Radical Left is resorting to violence to protest the outcome of a democratically held election. It’s not really all […]

The one bad thing that came out of this most historic of all elections is that, sadly, it looks like there will be no Trump TV after all. But at least the Face of Evil proved me right about her never becoming president of the United States, though I admit I never thought she would […]

Finally!

finally

So it’s all come down to this. After a year-and-a-half of nonstop lies, childish name-calling, shameless race-baiting, and scandals so commonplace that most people have become immune to the rampant criminal activity in Washington, today is the day patriotic citizens march dutifully to the polls, desperately wanting to believe that their vote will help turn […]

I’m back again after a month of reflection, and, not surprisingly, nothing much has changed in the world of politics. I feel as though someone left the projector running while I took a break, and when I returned, the same movie was still playing. Which was not surprising, because many years ago I shut politics […]

Eminent Domain and Donald Trump

Posted on September 20, 2016 by Robert Ringer Comments (68)

One of a handful issues I have with Donald Trump is his appetite for eminent domain. Whenever you watch a tear-jerking eminent-domain story on television, it serves as a grim reminder that we are not, by any stretch of the imagination, totally free. So now that an eminent domain practitioner is about to become president […]

Does Trump Deserve to Lose Your Vote?

Now that the Trumpster has done an about face on the very issue that brought him to center stage from the outset of his presidential campaign, is it time to write him off as just another well-intentioned guy who got corrupted by the system — before he even got elected no less? Maybe … but […]

A few years back, Time magazine ran a cover story about greed.  Though it possessed many flawed premises and opinions masquerading as facts, it prompted me to reflect on this perpetually misunderstood subject. Among other things, the Time article stated, “Of all the impulses in humanity’s behavioral portfolio, ambition — that need to grab an […]

Toward a More Perfect Union

diversity

A visitor from another galaxy might be puzzled as to why so many Americans are so hung up on the issue of skin color. Given that slavery in the United States was abolished more than 150 years ago, you’d think that the subject would have faded into the marred pages of human history by now. […]
