Hmmm… ‘Tis something in the Wind that makes me think Sarah Palin might be this Generation’s JFK…
Oh, I know, I know: This opens me up to the hackneyed Lloyd Bentsen trope about knowing John Kennedy, and you, Sarah Palin, are no John Kennedy… To which, one hopes, she would answer, “You’re right. I never cheated on my spouse, got involved with the Mob, and my Daddy never bought me a Pulitzer Prize.” But, the analogy is this: JFK created a whole | Read More »
Ernst Vom Raft, a German diplomat in pre-war Paris was allegedly assassinated by Herschel Grynzpan in the late afternoon hours of November 9, 1938. When word reached Adolf Hilter, who was carousing with his filthy thugs celebrating the 1923 Beer Hall Putsch, he suspended his anniversary remarks, and urged Germany to exact revenge on the Jewry of greater Germany. The ensuing horrific, nauseating, horrendous violence | Read More »
I never knew the Health Benefits of High Gas Prices until Barack Obama became President!
I’ve changed my mind. Barack Obama is the greatest man to ever become President. I used to think President Obama was merely a hack Democrat Illinois backbench graft-peeler, one of the thousands of useless low-level politicians cranked out of the leftist Political Science university assembly-line. I used to think he was a middling personality of middling intellect, with no creative curiosity– save his smoldering rage | Read More »
May 18th, 1927– The Story of little Ralphie Cushman’s Tulips, and how they Bloom Today..
Springtime in Mid-Michigan is a many-splendor’d thing. My old neighbor, Mrs. Taylor (who died in 1987 at the age of 83) once told me her remembrance of hitching up the carriage and horses as a youngster to go to the high school baccalaureate. It was late May, and she passed the freshly-planted fields, the equipment still in the furrows… covered with a freshly fallen snow. | Read More »
What if Barack Obama’s Christianity is more Authentic than Mitt Romney’s? [Closed]
I don’t care if you’re “just asking” with that passive-aggressive hooey or whatever. I’ll close threads when I see them, and if people start repeating them I just might ban the offenders. This is a political website. Take your religious wars elsewhere. – NS I’m just asking– Religion, as it always does, will play a significant role in the 2012 Presidential election. It certainly did | Read More »
Obama Sighed, a City Died
Although I recoil from the up-to-the-minute cliched jargon of it, my wife and I (along with the kids) just enjoyed a small “Stay-cation”; We ventured forth from our cozy nest here in Northern Michigan, and went south… to Detroit. Yeah, yeah, I know: Who the heck vacations in Detroit? People with relatives there, and who just spent a boat-load of money building a new drain | Read More »
All Hail the Vacationer-In-Chief!
Probably the most unexpected pratfall of the ascension of Barack Obama to the highest office was how often he would be Out Of The Office. Air Force One has built up so many Frequent Flier Miles that I fully expect to wake up one morning to find out that Mr. Obama has a controlling interest now in Perrillo Tours. This is in stark contrast to | Read More »
Today, I Basked in God’s Creation…
The sun this morning rose in salmon-colored haziness. Here in Northern Michigan, the snows of February and early March had settled into late-winter glaciers. But, this morning, the driveway was spongy with melting snow. I think I heard a red-winged blackbird give it’s distinctive guttural chirps. The damps had a freshened air to them. Later, the sky that had the early-morning palette of an orange | Read More »
Next Monday is the First Anniversary of Obamacare: How Will YOU Celebrate?
As for myself, I remember that day, now one year ago, like a foggy half-dream: Waiting for the well-coiffed Congressman Bart Stupak to appear before the breathlessly anxious and cowering masses to announce his choice: Would America stand ram-rod straight in the face of an onslaught of statist, tyrannical authoritarianism, and reject socialized medicine– or would we lurch headlong into a nightmare of government control | Read More »
7 Ways We Will Know Congressional Republicans are Serious When…
1) …They stop engaging the mechanisms of the Leftist-Media Complex. That means no more mugging for interviews with Leslie Stahl. No more trial balloons on the Sunday morning gab-fests at the antique television networks. No more sucking up to the New York Times. No more worrying what David Gregory thinks of them. If they must go to these forums, then they will do it on | Read More »
