RedState’s Year-End List of Banished Words and Phrases from the Queen’s English — Open for Nominations!
Michigan’s most iconic PR man was likely the late, Great Bill Rabe (pronounced “Ray-bee”) of Lake Superior State College. And, in a state full of automobile hucksters from David E. Davis to Harvey Earl, that’s saying a lot. But, all through the 70’s and 80’s, the joyous Bill could be heard any given morning swapping clever repartee and jocularity with JP McCarthy on WJR (“The | Read More »
I’m Coming Out of the Closet… I am a Married Heterosexual Evangelical Christian!
So, there I was, minding my own business… And I read that the guy with the long, scruffy beard from Duck Dynasty can’t figure out why some guys might prefer a man’s anus to a woman’s vagina. Ho, hum, another day in America. What’s on the Weather Channel? It seems like just yesterday that we were all worried about Miley Cyrus “twerking” –although, being a | Read More »
With a Nod to Marvin Gaye: Here’s What’s Goin’ On…
I was 45 when Barack Obama was first elected. I am 50 now. Tempus Fugit. Time flies… We all have only so many days. We are on this earth for a finite number of minutes. Tick, tock. The political blood-suckers look at the next election cycle in a vacuum of dialectic abstraction. In fact, simply calling them an “election cycle” betrays a ne’er-do-well mind-set that | Read More »
The Next Time Some Compassion-Fascist says “Conservatives Have No Solution for Health Care”, Tell Them About This…
In 1956, President Dwight Eisenhower signed the Federal Aid for Highways bill. In popular idiom, it became known as the “National Interstate and Defense Highways Act of 1956″. At the time, the Act was wrought with a certain amount of angst and opposition: The amount of rights-of-way to be purchased, the number of homes, families and buisnesses that would be dislocated, and the fact | Read More »
September Twenty-Ten (Sung to the Tune of “December ’63”, by The Four Seasons)
Obamacare..! Late September back in Twenty-Ten Barack Obama picked up his pen And he signed Obamacare Obamacare..! You know they didn’t even read the bill They just told us all to take a pill– What a nightmare, what a law! And now, my money isn’t mine anymore… As I recall it all now belongs to– Obamacare..!

Civil Disobedience for Dummies (Including Me…)
As Rod Serling would say: “Submitted for your Approval…” And, just as the old Twilight Zone veered often into unpleasant truths about the nature of Man, I think we may have stumbled into a chink in the considerable Obamacare armor. And, I think there may be a relatively simple way to make the whole ridiculous law hang from it’s own haphazardly constructed gibbet. There is | Read More »
Pace Freddie Mercury, “Nothing Really Matters”…
I don’t know how to tell you all this, but the gig is up. Obamacare is permanently cemented into the infinitely mammoth edifice of Washington. Even after nearly four years of “Republican” chest-thumping against it, the hilariously-named “Affordable Care Act” will never go away –unless the long arm of societal upheaval reaches in, and strips it out. When it finally falls, it will take much | Read More »
Theatre of the Ironic: Breaking Bad and Obamacare Are Shrieking Toward Vainglorious Endings on the Same Night…
For a second or two this week, it seemed that the Republicans in the United States House of Representatives were poised to do the right thing: They sent the detestable Harry Reid a “continuing resolution” funding the Federal Government– without a single dime to continue implementing the foul scourge of federalized medicine. Finally, like watching the time-lapse video of a child developing in the womb, | Read More »
“French Republicans”– Love It, Absolutely Love It!
In a toss-off line just before a commercial break, nationally syndicated radio talk-show host Mark Levin quickly pondered with exasperation: “I don’t even know what to call these people; French Republicans?” He was, of course, referring to the GOP Surrender Monkeys in our midst, those antique Republicans who reflexively flinch at the mere mention of “Government Shut-Down” or who blanch in fear when Frank Luntz | Read More »
You Know Something, Barack? Screw You…
Barack Obama is utterly loathsome. “Search my soul,” he intones, in his most sober, professorial condescension. In his world, we are all Americans, and, Lord Knows, Americans are by definition racist, stump-toothed cast-offs from the set-list of extras on Deliverance: An American court, in an American State, with an American Jury passed judgment about a case involving two Americans. Yep, it must be racist. Time | Read More »
