The Donald Sterling issue is only the latest example of how symbolism over substance is distorting the national conversation about race, class, and economic reality. We have gone from caring about substance to caring about appearances – to such a degree, in fact, that we can turn […]
Leave it to The Gay Lady to be a day late and a few brain cells short. The New York Times recently published an article by some journalism-school retread about the Cliven Bundy situation, a piece containing all the usual talking points about how the “racist” rancher’s […]
Politics is no country for old men.
The left likes to lampoon the GOP as a party of grumpy old men. Wrong.
A new generation is rising. The most striking display at the recent CPAC was a barrage balloon emblazoned with the words War On Youth. It […]
In the late, great Harold Ramis’ cinematic classic “Animal House,” perpetual Faber College student John Blutarsky succinctly summed up the Left’s approach to policy.
Over? Did you say ‘over?’ Nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? […]
A surprising new economic phenomenon is occurring these days, in the United States.
Thanks to gowning incomes, among a privileged few citizens benefiting from Barack Obama’s latest iteration of “crony capitalism” – funneling government contracts & grants to privileged political allies of the Obama administration — marketers […]
This is at once obnoxious and pathetic.
Wheeler Tees Up Net Neutrality for May Meeting
FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler said Wednesday that he would be circulating a draft of the FCC’s new network neutrality rules to the other commissioners Thursday (April 24).
This is their third […]
We are witnessing, I believe, a turning point in geopolitical history, one future historians may analyze as we have the Roman Empire’s fall. Vladimir Putin is making a move — and it’s not just against Ukraine. It may not be just a move against Eastern Europe. It’s […]
The other day I came across an article on CNN entitled, “Why are Some Democrats Running Away from Obamacare?,” a truly comical piece which would be even funnier were it not mere cheerleading disguised as analysis. And cheerleading is desperately needed as Democrats approach the midterm elections. […]
I have hired a lot of women over the years. Most of my employees were women. A few of the associate dentists were male. But all the rest were female. There was one male dental assistant that was considering a position, but he was […]
Last week, Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy drew a line in the sand against the federal thugs from the Bureau of Land Management, who rustled his cattle and brought in professional snipers in an effort to bully him into subjugation to their regulations and grazing fees. But the […]
In the United States of America, our U.S. Constitution creates a Constitutional Representative Republic, as opposed to the myth that we are a pure democracy. That Constitution lays out the specific enumerated powers of each of three branches of the Federal government, and the authorities to carry […]
We have before us – and the government – Comcast’s acquisition of Time Warner Cable.
Which the Leviathan and the Left view as an opportunity to outright blockade the free market. Or, barring that, unilaterally impose many, many a la carte regulations – that […]
The federal government is yet again acquiescing to the ridiculous anti-free market demands of the Left. We the People will yet again be forced to pay dearly for the resulting damage.
We have looming before us a wireless spectrum crunch. Spectrum being the finite airwaves we […]
Problems caused by America’s broken immigration system are causing misery to America’s immigrant community (both legal residents and undocumented), and, for good measure, to the president, the GOP and American society. There may be only one person with both the intentionality and the resources to resolve America’s […]
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 […]
Putin under pressure, while some concessions confirm that their originator is a fool.
A common gene connects the dominant systems of the past; they were mostly dictatorships. Rarely could a major power be rated, by the standards of its time, as free. Applying […]
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 […]
Marcus Carter has always generously let me shoot his guns at no charge.
It has been three and a half years since I first covered the case of a Washington State prosecutor […]

ALL DARK BLUE TEXT IS MY PERSONAL NARRATIVE
ALL PERTINENT LINKS ARE HIGHLIGHTED IN BLUE

Beginning in the late 1970s, an offshoot of Marxism known as Critical Legal Studies took hold in the American legal academy. Born in May 1977 at a law and society colloquium at Madison, Wisconsin, Critical Legal Studies was an outgrowth of postmodernism. This school of thought held […]
