For Donald Trump’s sake …

Posted on May 16, 2016 by Robert Ringer

For Donald Trump’s sake, I hope the leaks from Ben Carson about potential running mates for him are not accurate. Let’s take them one at a time. I like Sarah Palin’s toughness and unwavering adherence to her values, but, fairly or unfairly, a large percentage of the electorate thinks she’s a dingbat. Trump doesn’t need […]

The Culture War Heats Up

Posted on May 2, 2016 by Robert Ringer

Can a society without certitudes, without norms, without a generally accepted code of conduct survive? Yes, but survival is not the issue. A society that is fundamentally transformed may retain its name and geographic boundaries, but at its cultural core it is different. Thus, the greatest danger the American Empire faces is not war with […]

Is Cruz Cracking Up?

Posted on April 21, 2016 by Robert Ringer

Okay, enough’s enough. Now I’m getting seriously concerned about Ted Cruz’s mental health. Ever since Trump won New York in a landslide and Cruz came away with zero delegates, he’s been talking as though he were the one who came out on top in the Empire State. Cruz keeps railing on and on about winning […]

The Stench of a Contested Convention

Posted on April 11, 2016 by Robert Ringer


For months now, the hottest political topic by far has been the phenomenon of a “contested convention” in the Republican Party. Most people are baffled, because their instinctual sense of fairness tells them that whoever gets the most votes — whether it’s for queen of the high school prom, captain of the football team, or […]

The Establishment Will Never Get It

Posted on April 7, 2016 by Robert Ringer

Today, I caught the end of Rush talking about an unnamed establishment big-money guy who is demanding that global warming be part of the Republican platform. Isn’t it amazing? Manmade global warming DOES NOT EXIST – and, contrary to what the radical left and establishment Republicans say, there is zero proof to the contrary — […]

Could the Odd Couple Actually Join Hands?

Posted on April 6, 2016 by Robert Ringer

I didn’t watch so much as a minute of the election returns last night, because it was a foregone conclusion that Crud Cruz was going to win Wisconsin and I simply didn’t want to hear about it. Even worse would have been subjecting myself to watching him give a victory speech, fraught with those meticulously […]

Should the use of nuclear weapons be off the table?

Posted on April 4, 2016 by Robert Ringer

Over and over again Republican candidates, especially Donald Trump, have said things that have brought a torrent of criticism from the media that have left me scratching my head. The brouhaha over the use of nuclear weapons was especially interesting, because Trump’s words mirrored what has been my position as long as I can remember. […]

Capitalism or Communism? What Difference Does It Make?

Posted on March 28, 2016 by Robert Ringer

Quite the comedian, that Barackus fellow. What a knee-slapper it was in Argentina when he told a group of young Argentinians (as always, with a straight face) that there was no great difference between communism and capitalism and that they should just “choose from what works.” He then went on to say, “So often in […]

The Brilliance and Stupidity of The Penguin

Posted on March 24, 2016 by Robert Ringer

I hate to admit it, but I’ve been slowly coming around to thinking that perhaps Ted Cruz, even with his many flaws, might be the best guy to have at the controls if Obama really does step aside next January. Naïve as it may sound, I believe Cruz might actually do many of the things […]

Our Dear Leader Pays Homage to the Commies

Posted on March 21, 2016 by Robert Ringer

Obama’s shameful trip to Cuba today brought back memories of the 1959 Castro revolution in that once-beautiful Caribbean country. The far left in the United States was, of course, ecstatic, when Castro and his revolutionaries took control of things, but overall public sentiment changed quickly when images of Castro’s thugs executing “enemies of the revolution” […]
