Caveat Emptor, Republicans

Posted on March 5, 2019 by Robert Ringer

Just when you think you’ve seen it all, Van Jones appears at CPAC for an exchange of ideas with American Conservative Union chairman Matt Schlapp.  To put it mildly, I was pleasantly surprised by both his words and demeanor.  The Radical Left must have been throwing hammers and sickles at their TV sets when Jones […]

Wake Up, America!

Now that the Dirty Dems are openly pushing socialism, it’s a good time to address the most misused word in the dictionary:  right.  It’s a word that’s pretty much synonymous with entitlement.  The subtle difference between the two is that right has a much stronger moral connotation to it than entitlement.  It’s very official sounding, […]

Victimhood’s Mortal Enemy

Posted on February 23, 2019 by Robert Ringer

In an age where victimhood has become entrenched as America’s state religion, it’s refreshing to occasionally meet someone who is determined to overcome their obstacles and find a way to make life work on their terms. I was recently reminded of this when I had a chance encounter with a remarkable, upbeat young woman at […]

Is It Time for Reparations?

Steve Hilton, whose intellect I have come to admire over the past year, probably startled his audience recently when he presented his case for “asset reparations” — things like home loans and loans to start businesses — for descendants of African-American slaves. Hilton said that even though no African-American today has experienced slavery, and very […]

The Democratic Primary Derby

I view the following candidates as serious contenders for the Democratic presidential nomination, not because they’re quality people — they’re not — but because fate has elevated them into the public spotlight.  You might say they are accidents of history. Joe Biden.  One-percent Joe has a real shot at the Democratic nomination, for no other […]

This is the first in a series of pieces I’ll be doing on the 2020 Democratic primary derby.  I plan to update it periodically, particularly when I see a major shift in the prospects of any of the candidates. I’m not going to include the army of no-names who have announced, or who have hinted […]

AOC’s Success Formula: GND = SOC

By now, you know all about AOC’s Green New Deal and have probably been splitting your sides laughing.  But I once again caution you not to brush her off lightly.  The reality is that this enthusiastic little bimbo is probably going to be around for another 50 years or more, so it would be wise […]

AOC and the Moron Mob

An acquaintance of mine recently asked me if I took media darling Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez seriously?  Without hesitation, I answered in the affirmative.  Let me explain why. In full disclosure, I admit I have a soft spot for AOC.  She’s an adorable little girl with sparkling eyes and boundless energy.  Sure, she’s undeniably a moron, but […]

The Dirty Dem Auction Is Underway

Those of us who were around to witness the big bang of the Victimization Trap are still amazed by how thoroughly entrenched it has become.  In the early going, it was pretty  much just a handful of hippies to whom no well-bathed person paid much attention.  I always thought the Haight-Ashbury kids were kind of […]

The Morality of Individualism

Posted on January 15, 2019 by Robert Ringer

With child star Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and a large portion of the Democratic Party now openly promoting socialism/communism, it’s a good time to take a look at its polar opposite, individualism.  Liberals insist that individualism is a “selfish” philosophy devoid of compassion.  But is it?  To address this claim, let’s begin at the beginning and examine […]
