Paul Ryan Light Takes the Gavel

Posted on January 11, 2023 by Robert Ringer


I couldn’t bring myself to watch very much of last week’s D.C. theatrical production, but the little bit I did watch was enough to make me roll my eyes.  Even though the Foxcasters tried their best to make the Republican speakership brawl sound like a life-or-death nail-biter, it’s safe to say that most viewers knew […]

Another Chance for Timid Republicans

Posted on January 3, 2023 by Robert Ringer


Republicans felt they were cheated out of a red wave in November just because they forgot to explain to voters why they should vote for them.  Today, however, is a bright new beginning filled with eternal hope as Republicans settle in with their narrow House majority. Now the big question is, does the GOP have […]

Freedom or Slavery, Pick One

Posted on December 28, 2022 by Robert Ringer


The latest NFL hubbub in a long series of hubbubs is over Troy Vincent’s eye-opening remark comparing the league’s draft combine to slavery.  Vincent is Executive Vice President of Football Operations for the NFL, but he obviously doesn’t know much about slavery. The well-deserved blowback against Vincent’s comment was fast and furious.  Obviously, men who […]

The Major Impediment to Democracy

Posted on December 20, 2022 by Robert Ringer


The Democrats’ favorite new word is democracy, which they use as a euphemism for (1) getting their way on everything and (2) more and bigger government.  Anything that goes against their beliefs is not only dangerous, but “a threat to democracy.”  Challenging the results of an election is a threat to democracy.  Not allowing censorship […]

The Best Argument Against Democracy

Posted on December 13, 2022 by Robert Ringer


Now that Republicans are set to take over the House, the worn-out phrase “People need to be held accountable” is being bandied about endlessly.  Pretty scary words, but what they translate into in real life is “No one is actually going to be punished for their crimes.” In an extreme case, someone might be “sanctioned,” […]

Do Americans Really Want Freedom?

Posted on December 6, 2022 by Robert Ringer


Now that Elon Musk is moving swiftly to convert Twitter into a free-speech platform, the anti-freedom long knives are out in full force.  The idea of a wisecracking centibillionaire allowing people to openly state their opinions without fear of censorship is anathema to totalitarian minds.  The way they are freaking out over the release of […]

The Power of Facts

Posted on November 28, 2022 by Robert Ringer


With the holiday season rolling into high gear, the political news is even more boring than usual, so I thought I’d treat myself to some stimulation with a good dose of Thomas Sowell.  I randomly picked a YouTube video about Sowell that was produced by Jason Riley of The Wall Street Journal, and it reminded […]

The Red-Trickle Fallout

Posted on November 15, 2022 by Robert Ringer


The debate over last week’s red-trickle rages on, with everyone blaming everyone else for the disappointing GOP results.  Glass-half-empty Republicans are both disappointed and angry over the election outcomes, while glass-half-full Republicans look at the midterms as a solid step forward in the quest to take back the country from the ghouls, criminals, and crazies […]

Disinfection Day Is Upon Us

Posted on November 7, 2022 by Robert Ringer


Desperate people resort to desperate solutions.  Democrats, even by the admission of many in their own party, have been in full-blown desperation mode leading up to tomorrow’s election.  January 6, Roe v Wade hysteria, and the tried-and-true battle cry of racism all looked very promising at one time, but the Dems have managed to shoot […]

The United States of Obeah

One of the most intriguing scenes from the weird but wonderful movie Meet Joe Black was when Joe (Brad Pitt) interacted with a sickly, elderly Jamaican woman in the hospital.  When she saw him, the first words out of her mouth were, “Obeah mon; I gonna die,” to which Joe responded, “Obeah evil; I not […]
