Former University of Kentucky swimmer Riley Gaines was enjoying a charmed life, succeeding in just about everything she undertook in a country she believed was solidly entrenched in the principal of meritocracy.  Then, along came a bully who declared himself to be a woman and adopted the name Lia Thomas for his newly created fictitious […]

The legendary German theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer, whom the Nazis executed less than a month before the end of World War II, once offered this fascinating comparison of stupidity and malice: “Stupidity is a more dangerous enemy of the good than malice.  One may protest against evil; it can be exposed and, if need be, prevented […]

I have often said that the saving grace for Republicans is that Democrats never fail to overplay their hand.  They can’t help it, it’s in their blood.  They get something akin to a carnal thrill out of seeing their enemies upset, even if they know it’s temporary. The Dems’ addiction to this kind of false […]

Prior to last weekend, I had not watched any of Donald Trump’s rallies since he left office, mainly because they were all pretty much the same.  Also, it was too painful to listen to him lash out at people who were not worthy of his acknowledgement.  That said, I decided to tune into his rally […]

When it comes to government scams, the banking crisis is once again the topic du jour worldwide, but most of the talk surrounding it is frivolous.  Anyone with even a layman’s knowledge of finance realizes that the U.S. banking system is unsound and, technically speaking, has been unsound at least since President Nixon finished the […]

Even people who are basically honest lie now and then, often for no other reason than they don’t want to hurt someone’s feelings.  But in the world of politics, lying has long been an art form.  The mental dwarfs in D.C. have come a long way since George Washington admitted to his father that he […]

We’ve heard a lot over the years about a possible secession of red states from America, and the idea is back in vogue with Marjorie Taylor Greene calling for a “national divorce.”  It’s a drastic measure that appeals to those who believe we’ve passed the last checkpoint for stemming the decline of the American Empire.

The first time I saw Vivek Ramaswamy on television, I said to my wife, “I never heard of this guy before, but I can tell you now that he’s going to be president someday.  He needs a few years under his belt to raise his visibility, but he could be ready by as early as […]

As daily life in America continues to become unhinged, historians are increasingly questioning whether the once shining city upon a hill is on the verge of going the way of all great empires throughout history.  Today, even rank-and-file folks talk openly about the demise of America.  Common sense tells them that a country that allows […]

After the Michael Brown and Freddie Gray sagas, one has to be careful about jumping to conclusions whenever a young black man gets killed by police.  As you will recall, the race hustlers in those cases looked absolutely ridiculous when the facts came out.  The Michael Brown fairy tale about his being a “gentle giant” […]
