    Luke 2:14

    In the past week, Islamic terrorists were responsible for the following acts in the name of Allah.  It gives new meaning to this season of peace and good will. December 18th- Boko Harem, an Islamic jihad group in Nigeria, kills at least 35 people and kidnaps another 185; December 20th- ISIL releases a video showing a hand being amputated on an accused thief; December 20th- | Read More »

    Top Liberal Spews of 2014- Part 4

    An election year tends to bring out the Lefty loons and this year did not disappoint.  Of course, there are always the behind-the-scenes actors like those dreaded, evil Koch brothers (who employ over 75,000 Americans) and #14 on this list- Tom Steyer (who employs zero Americans).  This self-made billionaire donated $74 million to NextGen- a PAC dedicated to Democratic candidates who would address climate change. | Read More »

    Top Liberal Spews on 2014- Part 3

     Its fitting that these next two appear near one another in the countdown since they share a lot in common.  Both are race baiters extraordinaire and both see a racial bogeyman behind everything.  So coming in at #16 is outgoing Attorney General Eric Holder.  He comes in lower in the countdown only because he is resigning and will be less high-profile now although one can | Read More »

    Top Liberal Jerks of 2014- Part 2

    Coming in at #18 is a person very few people have probably heard of- Esquire political blogger and ESPN sports analyst Charles Pierce.  There lies the problem in a nutshell- a sports writer doing political commentary.  Its just as silly as a community organizer becoming the President.  Charles Pierce zoomed into 18th place since he came out in defense of his “friend,” Jonathan Gruber.  In | Read More »

    Top Liberal Jerks of 2014- Part 1

    Like last year, the obvious choice- Obama and his wife- are off limits.  This is my list of some of the most obnoxious yet reflective individuals of the Lefty mindset. Coming in at #20 is the man a heart beat away from the Oval Office, Joe Biden.  In his long, distinguished career, Joe has made numerous gaffes and this year was no different.  I will, | Read More »

    Demographic Fallacies

    The New York Times had an article entitled “The Growing Blue-State Diaspora.”  In that article, the authors make a claim that as blue state residents move to traditionally red or swing states, they are changing the political ideological tendencies of their new home states.  It is not until almost the end of the article that the authors acknowledge that just because the person comes from | Read More »

    Some Thoughts on Cuba

    The history of US-Cuban relations is rife with exploitation before Castro and deep mistrust between the nations after Castro.  Much of that mistrust is justifiable on the US end of things given Castro’s rise to power and resulting placement in the Soviet Communist orbit culminating in the Cuban missile crisis and subsequent actions taken on both sides.  Make no mistake- the Castro brothers are brutal | Read More »

    We Tortured Some People and So What?

    First, let’s dispense with the semantic games over “torture” or “enhanced interrogations.”  Torture is defined as the “infliction of severe physical pain or anguish as a means of punishment or coercion.”  The 119 individuals swept up in the CIA’s program in the wake of 9/11 were not “punished.” The purpose of the techniques used was to coerce information out of the subjects.  It was “torture.” | Read More »

    Christie, Taxes and the Presidency

    The New Jersey transportation is almost empty.  The roads and bridges need to be fixed.  New Jersey has the second lowest gasoline tax in the United States.  Chris Christie may run for President.  Christie is opposed to tax increases.  What is a poor Governor to do? If you are Chris Christie in New Jersey, you appoint a Democrat to run your state’s transportation department and | Read More »
