Posted on August 3, 2020 by Robert Ringer

Presumption of knowledge is an unconscious habit of the mind.  In his book Confessions of an Advertising Man, legendary advertising giant David Ogilvy cautioned, “Never underestimate the reader’s lack of understanding of words you may not think to be difficult.”  I would expand on Ogilvy’s thought by saying it’s a mistake to presume people know […]

Posted on July 20, 2020 by Robert Ringer

Watching American law, American history, and American culture being cancelled brings to mind a prescient insight by John Adams:  “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people.  It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” While some may challenge the “religious people” aspect of Adams’ statement, there can be no doubt he was correct about […]

I’m rarely surprised by anything that happens in the squalid, corrupt world of politics, but I have to admit that President Trump caught me off guard with his embarrassing vaudeville act in Tulsa ten days ago.  I’m not a big Trump fan, per se, but I do support most of his freedom and free-market policies.

The decade of the Sixties was dominated by major riots throughout the United States, with four of the most destructive occurring in New York City (Harlem) in 1964, Los Angeles (Watts) in 1965, and Newark and Detroit in 1967. Riots usually have a flash point, and some of the most memorable ones in the Sixties […]

With all the hysteria over COVID-19, people aren’t paying much attention to the Sleepy Joe dilemma the Dirty Dems have created for themselves.  Simply speaking, it is this: Sleepy Joe, arguably the most flawed presidential candidate in U.S. history, is said to be the Democrats’ “presumptive nominee,” which represents an enormous problem for them.  Why?  […]

Honne vs Tatemae

The Japanese use the duality of honne and tatemae when referring to a person’s true feelings (reality) versus his public statements (illusion).  It’s a very important aspect of Asian culture, and the Chinese use the terms inside face and outside face to mean pretty much the same thing. Experience tells us that politicians and their […]

There are two ways to view the coronavirus epidemic, micro and macro.  The micro picture is comprised of infection and death totals that have caused an enormous amount of pain and suffering.  Nevertheless, sooner or later, this crisis will pass.  Pain and suffering always do.

Let us not forget that Mitt Romney is not alone in his sanctimonious crusade against President Trump.  A number of other Republicans — including Marco Rubio, Rob Portman, Joni Ernst, Lamar Alexander, and Ben Sasse — have made CYA comments indicating that Trump did something “inappropriate” on his call with Ukrainian president Zelensky.  To straddle […]

Stop Dignifying Irrelevancies!

The most frustrating thing about the latest Democratic thespian production in Washington is not Pencil Neck’s nonstop lies, Dunkin’ Doughnuts mascot Jerry Nadler’s accusations of a coverup-in-the-making by Republican senators, or the vile histrionics of Hakeem Jeffries.  The most frustrating thing not only about the current fake impeachment trial, but all other fake crises created […]
