Cognitive Dissonance and the Political Left

cognotive dissonance…[T]those who oppose ENDA [Employee Non-discrimination Act] for religious reasons, is it not possible to believe that homosexual acts are immoral, but also believe that LGBTs are entitled to fair treatment in the workplace?

Obama: Is He a Dope or a Liar?

obmlrObamaCare is a blessing. And ObamaCare was passed by only Democrat lemmings.

And the fact that it is called ObamaCare and not the Affordable Care Act is a bonus. The Democrats running for re-election will not be calling Obama to campaign for his ObamaCare.

Merry Kwanzaa or Whatever

White House Muddle-East Policy: Fools’ Paradise?

After four and a half years of the most inept administration of foreign policy concerning the Middle-East since a Georgia peanut farmer played a term as POTUS and managed to lose the late shah’s Iran as a valuable ally in favor of a theocractic tyrant who wished to drag his country and the region […]

The “Mommy Wars” Are Over

mmywrsWomen used to be faced with a dilemma: forgo a career to stay at home and raise children, or sacrifice the upbringing of your children in order to pursue a career. Since the 1960’s, feminists and conservatives have sparred over this choice. Feminists criticized mothers […]

Un-transforming America

emptystI always considered Barack Obama an empty suit, a coffeehouse communist, doomed to replay the tragic political and economic mistakes of the past because he lacked any sense of history beyond the clichés of fashionable and comfortable college Marxism.

Like the characters and events in his autobiography […]

Effectively Confronting The Speech And Religion Nazis

Robertson, the patriarch of the Arts and Entertainment Network series “Duck Dynasty,” has been accused of every possible crime against humanity ever since word of his interview with GQ magazine, containing his blunt assessment of homosexuality as […]

10 Liberal Limericks for 2013

In clear violation of op-ed protocol, this week I’m suspending prose and having a little good, clean, limericky fun at liberals’ expense because – well, because they just make it so darn easy. (Warning: Some are bad and others worse. Side effects may include groaning, nausea, vomiting and involuntary eye-rolling.)

Here they are in no […]

That Barbara Spectre Video

Barbara_Spectre There’s a YouTube video doing the rounds at the moment. In fact it’s gone viral (again?); even though the words were spoken in 2010. Why is that ? Because a Jewish woman has said things which some people – including myself – have a problem with. […]

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.

Duly Noted - “Karl Marx For President”

Is Christmas Dead Yet?

(Minutes before this posting, I read Erick Erickson’s for today on Townhall.com: “Why December 25th?” Though Mr. Erickson’s argument is entirely different in detail, the reader will find that its thrust is identical to mine.)

December 25 isn’t really a celebration of the winter solstice: our would-be neo-pagan brethren are as misinformed about that as […]

Reality TV Shows Aren’t All a Bad Thing

Blake Shelton on The Voice

With Duck Dynasty in the news over remarks made by one of its cast members, some conservatives are questioning the very existence of reality TV shows. Say “reality TV” and most people think of The Bachelor or […]

The Administration is Discovering Private Enterprise is Complicated

gvtrgltns2President Barack Obama recently uttered one of the most frustrating, angering and mind-numbingly uninformed things ever extruded by a government official.

ObamaCare is in the midst of its gi-normous, historic, inevitable fail – taking down with it the entire health insurance industry and large swaths of […]

Duck Flap: Truth is 'hate' to those who 'hate' truth

dckdynstyAs widely reported, Phil Robertson, the patriarch in A&E’s breakaway hit “Duck Dynasty,” recently ran a-fowl of homosexual pressure groups, ruffling “progressive” feathers throughout concentrated pockets of deep blue America. He remains suspended “indefinitely” for candidly summarizing, in a recent interview with GQ Magazine, the millennia-long “Love […]

Abandoning Our Liberties And Livelihoods: Lessons From The Obamacare Debacle

You’ve got to hand it to President Obama’s partisans among the pundits: they won’t be deterred, no matter how bad the President’s policies prove to be.

Even as Mr. Obama himself continuously alters and delays implementation of his own healthcare agenda (all without congressional participation), his faithful followers in […]

Joseph BH McMillan Reviews The God Argument: The Case against Religion and for Humanism, by AC Grayling.

The best I could say about The God Argument is that it is just another contribution to the singularly undistinguished tradition of the ‘thoroughly mediocre … utilitarian Englishmen’ who walk ‘clumsily and honorably in Bentham’s footsteps’. It also has that ‘small-soul smell’ of the ‘socialist dolts and flatheads’ in their drive for the ‘animalization of […]

What Makes American Children Want to Kill?

hpnchngFor more than 237 years, America has been the most free, peaceful, prosperous, generous and yes, well-armed society on earth. Through most of this period, parents taught their children to pray, to honor thy mother and father, to tell the truth, to work, sacrifice, earn and own, […]

Obamacore

This article is about the travesty called the Common Core Standards. Its design began before Obama was elected but I and others refer to it as Obamacore because Obama played a major role in imposing it on the country, and like Obamacare it was passed without being read, and […]

Homosexuals Get Duck Dy-Nasty

When I saw the headline yesterday about how “Duck Dynasty” patriarch Phil Robertson had commented on a certain sexuality-defined group, I wondered how long it would be before he got the “treatment.”

I saw the next headline no more than a few hours later.

In case you haven’t heard, the faith-filled Louisianan wound up in […]
