Whatever Happened to Peggy Joseph?

pgyjsphThe above title is a question I have been asking for the last 5 years. As the economy continued in the doldrums one has to wonder. Now many of you may be asking who is Peggy Joseph? The answer is that she is the woman who, in […]

Islamism and Reality

I recently encountered a piece of commentary entitled Moral Equivalence, Moral Idiocy by Bruce Thornton; an excellent item explaining exactly what is going on in the “Arab-Israeli dispute.” It reminds me, in some ways of a piece written by Israeli commentator Ephraim Kishon that I read in 1968 or thereabouts, in the wake of the […]

The Establishment Removes Its Mask

Growing up during the 1960’s in the People’s Republic of Berzerkeley, I was, more often than desired, treated to statements criticizing “the establishment.” As I grew older I found opportunity to ask exactly what this “establishment” was, and found that the only answers I received were nebulous, blaming “the established order” or a bit more […]

The IRS Scandal and Other Stories

 

As an attorney who concentrated in the area of tax law for fair number of years after spending another two years at a CPA office, which specialized in tax work, the entire Lois Lerner centered IRS scandal is enough to make a call for some sort of revolution sound like reasoned judgment. The whole […]

Understanding Obama’s ‘Irrationality’

 

For the last several years American political analysts have been politely arguing about exactly what was going on in the Oval Office. Was Barack Obama ignorant, or misguided, or simply foolish in his conduct? After all, his foreign policy actions looked as if he was completely out of touch with the reality of the […]

The Scandal of the Month Club Comes to the Veterans Administration

The Obama administration has been plagued with scandals ever since it came into being. It would have been so plagued earlier, were it not for a fawning press that cared less about the truth and more about toadying up to a man who deserved nothing more positive than the back of a hand.

The first […]

One Nation - Dr. Ben Carson's Prescription for America

OneNation_300I have been an admirer of Dr. Carson ever since he burst onto the national political scene via his address to the 2013 National Prayer Breakfast. His common sense logical approach to America’s current issues provides something that has not been seen in the political arena […]

Failure to Acknowledge Failure

For many years this writer has understood that one of the main problems with modern government is something that may be called “self legitimization.” It is a process by which government grows despite failures to effectively address problems that it claims are about to bring the world to a screeching halt more effectively than Michael […]

Foreign Affairs in the Land of Wishful Thinking

Barack Obama was supposed to be a foreign policy genius. There were two reasons cited for this. Firstly, he had spent a portion of his youth in Indonesia, and purportedly had traveled to Pakistan at some point. Secondly, he had taken a class in foreign affairs or foreign policy while at Columbia University. Proponents of […]

It Isn’t Just the Bundy Ranch

In the wake of the recent Bundy Ranch standoff, the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has placed its greedy eyes on a 90,000 acres of land on the Texas / Oklahoma border. The Bundy Ranch incident, which threatened to escalate into a shooting war, collapsed when reports surfaced that the ulterior motive behind the […]

The Lois Lerner Affair and Beyond

We have finally seen reveled what many of us knew all along; that Lois Lerner, the head of the IRS exempt organizations unit, was up to her eyeballs in the mishandling of the applications by Tea Party and similar groups that occurred during the run-up to the 2012 election. Lerner’s job was to oversee the […]

Dumb Gun Technology

Every time an incident of “gun violence” makes national news someone comes out with a proposal to further restrict or control firearms ownership and usage. The latest coming from Eric Holder is to use electronic technology. Either the gun will have a built in finger print scanner that will prevent anyone other than the owner […]

Examining Russia’s Crimean Problem

 

As a major power Russia has always had a problem. That problem is its coastline, or rather the lack thereof. Compare it to America and its three coasts, all of which have numerous warm water port facilities, and the problem becomes stark. Russia has a lot of coast, but much of it is either […]

Obama as a Religious Cult Leader

obama-halo

Back in the late 1970’s I had the, perhaps dubious, privilege of working on a case at law in which we were defending our client against an organization generally associated with what was called the religious cult movement. There were a number of such […]

Texas Primaries 2014

 

The 2014 Texas primary election has just been completed with repercussions that are, according to credible reports, resonating as far as Washington DC. While most people were focusing heavily on the US Senate race in which John Cornyn was facing opposition due to his apparent caving on the recent debt ceiling vote, the truly […]

Obamacare and the Keystone XL Pipeline

 

By now everyone who has kept an intelligent eye on current events knows that Obamacare is not about making medical care less expensive or more available. Obviously, the cost of medical “insurance” plans has gone up instead of down, as originally advertised. So has the end cost to consumers of medical care. With higher […]

Jason Furman’s Big Lie

 

When the Congressional Budget Office projections came out on February 4, it was exactly what yours truly expected. After all, every time the government meddles in the economy the regulations end up causing trouble, which invariably means a loss of jobs. Obamacare was not going to be an exception. The only issue was what […]

Frustration in Houston (And Elsewhere)

It was Friday, and the last day of January 2014. On my way home from my day job I was listening to the evening drive time show on our local independent radio station KSEV 700. Because Dan Patrick, one of the station’s long time hosts and a member of the Texas Senate, was running for […]

A Party Divided

It was 2011 and the San Francisco 49’ers season ended in a loss to the New York Giants in the NFC title game. With a new coaching staff Quarterback Alex Smith, who had languished previously, seemed to have hit his stride. But just eight games into the 2012 season Smith suffered a concussion and was […]

The Senate and Federalism – A Failure of Checks and Balances

When the Constitution was amended in 1913 to allow election of U.S. Senators by public vote it was a major change in the way in which the federal government operated. It also radically changed the power structure within the legislature, to the effect that one of the major checks on federal power was removed, paving […]

Comments on the Washington Paradox

The Washington Paradox is a short essay published by the political organization known as “Get Out of Our House” (aka GOOOH). Their primary focus appears to be “firing congress” and replacing current elected representatives with others who will be more inclined to serve the American people.

 

The essay centers on one critical fact; that […]

The Christmas Season is generally seen as a time of enjoyment and of all good things; family reunions, gifts and religious observances. But 2013 brought a particularly unfortunate event to the […]

Fast Food Workers May Be Destroying Their Own Jobs

burgers001The recent push for a fifteen-dollar per hour minimum by burger flippers may result in their replacement by the ultimate substitute; technology.

Some weeks ago my wife forwarded to me an email featuring a new technology marvel; the automatic hamburger-making machine. Capable of producing 320 […]
