The divergence of opinion on …

Posted on November 23, 2015 by Robert Ringer Comments (2)

The divergence of opinion on so many important issues never ceases to amaze me — manmade climate change, abortion, isolationism vs a strong, worldwide military presence, the evils of capitalism versus the morality of capitalism, and endless controversies about foods and vitamin supplements. (As just one example, some experts say selenium prevents cancer, while others […]

Can someone help me out here? I’m confused. Am I the only person in America asking the question: Why is everyone — including state governors — saying we should not take in any Syrian refugees until they have been properly vetted instead of asking why we should be taking in any Syrian refugees AT ALL? […]

I rarely agree with Ann Coulter on anything, but when she said, in response to the terrorist attacks in Paris, “Donald Trump was elected president tonight,” she very closely echoed my sentiments. When I first watched the news about the attacks, I said to my wife, “A lot of scared and angry people are going […]

It will be interesting to see how Republican presidential candidates handle the massacres in France in the coming weeks. Will any of them have the courage — or intellect — to confront the real problem? I doubt it. The problem is not ISIS. The problem is the moral deterioration of the Western world into an […]

Posted on November 12, 2015 by Robert Ringer No Comments

The student chaos at the University of Missouri, Ithaca College, and Smith College is a grim reminder of the lost sixties and early seventies, when student protests and rioting on college campuses across the country ultimately led to the deaths of four students (and injuries to nine) when National Guard troops opened fire on rioters […]

Posted on November 10, 2015 by Robert Ringer Comments (1)

The moderators for Tuesday’s GOP debate, Neil Cavuto and Maria Bartiromo, have got it right. They say they want to make themselves invisible. Cavuto adds that he doesn’t want the moderators to be the issue. I wonder if Megyn the Megalomaniac heard what Cavuto and Bartiromo had to say about their proper role in the […]

Posted on November 9, 2015 by Robert Ringer No Comments

I HAD A DREAM I had another one of those weird dreams last night. In this one, Ben Carson won the Republican nomination and chose Carly Fiorina as his VP. I’m not sure that I totally trust Carly, but she’s smarter than a whip and tough as nails. Which means she would make Hillary the […]

If simplifying your life has been a problem for you, you’re not alone. To one extent or another, everyone has a problem achieving simplicity. There are endless ways to complicate your life, and through the years I think I’ve tried them all. I didn’t get on the Simplicity Train until I finally discarded the notion […]

Do you believe in Freudian slips? I do — especially after Hillary dropped a big one last Friday when she spoke at an NAACP event in Charleston, S.C. She was discussing her proposal to allow convicted felons to not have to disclose their criminal histories on applications for federal jobs, when she laid this on […]

Posted on November 4, 2015 by Robert Ringer Comments (2)

Ted Koppel is out with a new book about the very real possibility that America’s entire power grid could be taken out at any time by Russia, China, or perhaps even Iran or ISIS. How well I remember the putdowns, even laughter, when I and many other “hard money” newsletter writers in the late seventies […]
