Things Fall Apart

I don’t know how we can like ourselves very much.  Not in this moment. Everything’s so disordered and ill-tempered. And lots seem very okay with this ... all right with this bankruptcy of common sense. There’s this casualness in how we mistreat sacred stuff that's made us special. How we desecrate … and adulterate … indispensable … Continue reading Things Fall Apart

Education’s Learned Idiots

"There is a widely held belief ... that if we start teaching children to read, write, and spell in preschool and kindergarten that they will be ahead of the game ... that pushing our kids to start early will make them better and give them the edge. But it doesn’t work that way, in fact it … Continue reading Education’s Learned Idiots

Kumbaya Krazy

If you’re lookin’ for some anarchy, you’re probably lookin’ in the wrong place. Oh, it’s out there in streets, alright. Masked clowns sashaying about  … costumed in home-made super-hero outfits.  Taunting police. Huddled-up in solidarity with other off-duty baristas. They’re the stooges. They don’t count. They’re not worth the worry.  The real-deal anarchists hang out … Continue reading Kumbaya Krazy

Election Day Flashback

Dear Barack, Thanks, but no thanks. You’ve done enough. In fact, you’ve done too much. We’re very okay now. In a very good spot. No reason to check back in. Folks have jobs. Taxes hurt less. The PC stuff doesn’t sting anymore … and the race card has finally gone lame. Businesses can breathe. Trade … Continue reading Election Day Flashback

Governor Thug

“Confidence is a nice suit. Arrogance is the same suit … with suspenders, Italian loafers, and gold cuff links.” Meet Andrew Cuomo. Governor of New York. Well tailored in arrogance. Not quite content with a modest marker for his father’s grave, he decided on a three mile long masterwork ... a bridge ... across the … Continue reading Governor Thug

Remember How Happy We Weren’t?

Bad nostalgia ... the Obama time. Tireless message ... even for those who serve their purgatories here on Earth in a blue state: Vote! This year's election is like no other. Should the Democrats take the House, they'll take control of your lives ... and haunt you from Day One. Maxine Waters will chair the powerful … Continue reading Remember How Happy We Weren’t?

EL TROJAN HORSIE

Dear Perplexed, I'll do my best to explain ... but ... I don't have much experience with crazy. “Can the Democrats really be this stupid?” Of course! Stupid and funny at the same moment! They're drowning in talent. Remember these guys?  "Asparagus" Booker ... "Hiawatha" Warren ... and "Boofy" Whitehouse. Yeah ... they can be that … Continue reading EL TROJAN HORSIE

Seize the Lie!

Democrats lie. All the time. It’s a habit they can’t shake. They lie big … and small. With straight faces … and with Liberace flamboyancies.  Some glare … or make scrunchy faces. Others sob …  maybe shake a finger. Flail some arms. Or just look nuts. There are beginner liars … and lying superstars. But … Continue reading Seize the Lie!

Liberal Desperation

A Central American migrant ... heads for the US ... screamed ... “Donald Trump is the antichrist ... he’s going to hell!" All because he won an election he wasn't supposed to win. Democrats are election losers. And desperate times call for desperate measures … and that’s what's happening now … with this caravan of border-crashers … Continue reading Liberal Desperation
