You know you’ve overdone it when every time you take a step your joints sound like bubble wrap. Let me say, on behalf of everyone who has ever had to move during the holiday season, why the hell do we all have so much stuff in our lives? I don’t know what happened. We moved into …

The cover of the Daily News featured a slam at prayer and God with this headline: “God Isn’t Fixing This.” It followed the headline with this tag line: “As latest batch of innocent Americans are left lying in pools of blood, cowards who could truly end gun scourge continue to hide behind meaningless platitudes.” Talk …

Where do you stand on federal funding of Planned Parenthood? Last year, the organization that murders more unborn babies than anyone else, received over $500 million of taxpayer funding. That’s right, your and my hard earned tax dollars being used to murder innocent children who are being deprived of their constitutional right to life. There …

Hillary Clinton knows that die hard liberals will vote for her no matter what she says or does. In fact, the more bizarre and outlandish her claims and policy positions are, the more firm liberals will be in supporting her. She knows that the Electoral map is on her side. she doesn’t need to win …

So all that patting, pinching and probing you’ve put up with for years just to get on board what amounts to a transit bus with wings surely has made U.S. airlines  among the safest in the world, right? Wrong. In fact, that statement is so wrong that the head of the TSA has been sent …

I’ve lost count on how many articles that I and others have written about the issues surrounding the Common Core Standards.  They teach pornography, socialism, anti-Christian, anti-parent, anti-American, pro-Muslim and pro-one world government.  In math they teach that the right answers are less important than learning to do things the socialist way. If you had …

Just because Uncle Sam doesn’t already spy on everybody enough, the military is actively working on the next wave of robotic drones for use specifically in urban settings. We’ve all seen “Terminator” and “I, Robot” along with hundreds of other science fiction films where the robots of the future are bigger and badder than your …

When President Johnson declared a “War on Poverty” 50 years ago today, he wasn’t just aiming for marginal improvements, he thought he could wipe out poverty and prevent future poverty. By that measure, the War on Poverty has been a tremendous failure. Some $20 trillion later, the poverty rate has barely edged downward over the …

President Barack Obama has been constantly changing the rules of Obamacare.  To begin with, all of his exemptions and extensions are illegal and could be challenged in court if anyone wanted to. Why?  The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act was passed by Congress and signed into law by the President.  Any changes to the …

One of the greatest problems I’ve seen in our government and even in some businesses is that they believe that they have to spend every penny allocated to them.  The thinking behind this is that if they don’t spend all of their money by the end of the fiscal year that they won’t get as …

The Democrats succeeded in shutting down the federal government.
