The Art of the Lie

Posted on November 27, 2018 by Robert Ringer


The lost decade of the sixties brought relativism up to a whole new level, as millions of young people were relieved to discover that lying is a perfectly acceptable alternative to truth telling.  The tone was set by Presidents John F. Kennedy and Lyndon Johnson, along with underlings like Robert McNamara, Henry Cabot Lodge, and […]

Have Republicans Learned Anything?

Posted on November 13, 2018 by Robert Ringer


Okay, we made it through the midterms with no blue wave – not even close — but I’m still a bit disappointed by the results.  The House wasn’t a surprise, though I did believe that Republicans could pull out a victory. As to the Senate, I felt that Republicans had a good chance of picking […]

A Final Word on the 2018 Midterms

Posted on November 5, 2018 by Robert Ringer


Here we are again, ground zero for another election.  But this time around there’s a different feeling in the air, a feeling that the stakes are higher than they’ve ever been before. Those who pay attention to politics see tomorrow’s midterms as a referendum on capitalism versus socialism, free speech versus political correctness, freedom of […]

Fake Caravans and Decision Time for America

Posted on October 26, 2018 by Robert Ringer


People are often surprised when I tell them I believe in open borders … in theory, that is.  That’s right, the libertarian side of me believes that a person has a natural right to live wherever he pleases. Stop and think about that for a moment.  Why should a bunch of corrupt politicians and bureaucrats […]

Free Will versus Randomness

Posted on October 16, 2018 by Robert Ringer


From the Dust Bowl of the 1930s to the 1906 San Francisco earthquake to Hurricanes Michael and Florence, we are constantly reminded of just how much of life is random.  No matter how many natural disasters we study, we can never answer the question of why random events — both good and bad — occur. […]

Lessons from an Attempted Lynching

Posted on October 9, 2018 by Robert Ringer


At the risk of being politically incorrect, I have to take issue with the views that most people had of two women in the attempted lynching of Brett Kavanaugh.  Not because they’re women, but because they played such key roles in how things turned out. First is Susan Collins, whom many, including Sean Hannity, labeled […]

If Kavanaugh Goes Down, Then What?

Posted on October 1, 2018 by Robert Ringer


Surprise, surprise — another successful Democratic stall in the Judge Kavanaugh confirmation process, made possible by yet another Republican el foldo.  Is there anyone with an IQ over 50 who did not know that the Dirty Dems would find a way to once again delay Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation and that the usual spineless Republicans would […]

Negotiation Is Capitulation

Posted on September 26, 2018 by Robert Ringer


Now that everyone realizes that the Christine Blasey Ford (aka “Stormy II”) allegations against Brett Kavanaugh are a complete sham, let’s say it loud and clear:  Given the lack of evidence in this sideshow — and especially corroborating evidence — the allegations by Stormy II should have been ignored and Brett Kavanaugh should have already […]

Free Will and Mind Control

Posted on September 24, 2018 by Robert Ringer


Few disciplines are more difficult for modern man than silencing his noise machine.  It’s a machine that continuously floods the mind with thoughts of guilt, anger, the latest injustices he has suffered, and endless trivia.  It randomly engages in self-debate and senseless chatter, blocking out all attempts to bring forth a meaningful thought. Many people […]

Embracing Reality

Posted on September 18, 2018 by Robert Ringer


As the lying, corruption, and craziness continue unabated in Washington, it’s a reminder of just how important it is to one’s sanity to embrace reality.  Reality is synonymous with truth, but, as Baltasar Gracian, the insightful and pragmatic 17th century Jesuit priest, cautioned, “Truth is abhorred by the masses.” Instead of loving truth, most people […]
