    The Insensitivity of Father’s Day

    I cannot hold it in anymore. Every year I bite my tongue at Mother’s Day and Father’s Day because I don’t want to dampen the enthusiasm for these celebrations. If there is anyone who deserves special recognition, it’s our parents. All I ask is some consideration for those of us who have lost our parents. Is it asking too much to have a little sensitivity? | Read More »

    Memo to Republicans: We Don’t Need a Candidate of the Month

    The 2012 Presidential campaign saw Republicans swarm to whatever candidate was popular at the moment, which was usually the candidate who had gone the longest without saying or doing something stupid. There was Newt. Rick Santorum. Herman Cain. Donald Trump led the popularity contest for awhile and he wasn’t even running! Would Sarah Palin run? Mitt Romney was leading the herd when the clock ran | Read More »

    Working on Thanksgiving Do-Gooders Need To Mind Their Own Business

    As more and more retailers announce they will be open on Thanksgiving, the blowback surges over the poor low-paid employees who have to work on Thanksgiving. Most of the people doing the whining will not be working on the holiday, but want to show their compassion for their fellow man. They make the   assumption that nobody wants to work on Thanksgiving. That simply is | Read More »

    Obama Hates the Greatest Generation

    It should come as no surprise Barack Obama has tried to keep World War II veterans from their memorial. Obama holds the Greatest Generation in complete disdain. They preserved freedom and cemented America’s position as a world superpower. Obama has used his presidency to tear down both. He was raised in an anti-American household and was taught to hate the United States. Obama doesn’t care | Read More »

    Comparing CEO Pay to Worker Pay is Ridiculous

    The United Auto Workers is currently striking against an auto parts supplier in my town. Key issues include overtime pay, increases in co-pays for health care and the use of more temporary employees at the plant. It’s ironic that at least two of those three issues is a direct result of policies implemented by a President the UAW helped elect. Thanks to Obamacare, most people | Read More »

    It’s Odd Those Romney Votes In Ohio Come Up Obama And Not Somebody Else

    Some early voters in Ohio have reported that when they attempted to vote for Mitt Romney, Barack Obama’s name lit up. I find it very odd that it was Barack Obama.  Not Gary Johnson, or Jill Stein, or Virgil Goode Jr., or Richard Duncan, or Stewart Alexander.  All are presidential candidates on the Ohio ballot. No, it was Barack Obama.  Amazing.  There would be a | Read More »

    “Do-Nothing Congress” Is No Accident

    President Barack Obama, never one to take responsibility for anything, likes to tell people the reason he cannot fix all those problems George Bush created is the “do-nothing congress.”  He appears frustrated that he cannot ram his agenda through without compromise. Never mind that he had his party in complete control of both the House and Senate for the first two years of his administration, | Read More »

    So What If Romney Has Offshore Accounts?

    The left seems obsessed with Mitt Romney’s tax returns.  Even more interesting, Democrats seem to think Americans actually care about Romney’s tax returns.  I suspect this is because the left is rapidly running out of ammunition and is grasping at straws. Harry Reid then doubled down by going to the floor of the U.S. Senate to levy an unsubstantiated claim that Romney paid no taxes | Read More »

    Nancy Pelosi Wants to Destroy Rain Forests

    Nancy Pelosi wants to destroy rain forests.  It must be so, because on Friday she decided to wade into the Chick-fil-A controversy.  She sent a tweet stating she preferred KFC over Chick-fil-A. What Mrs. Pelosi may not have considered is that KFC has come under fire from her buddies, the environmentalists, for using wood harvested from Indonesia’s rain forest to make their chicken buckets. Now | Read More »

    Mayors turn to totalitarianism over chicken

    Chick-fil-A has certainly ruffled some feathers lately.  Although they have done nothing different from what they’ve always done, the world has suddenly learned that the company is run by a . . . . . Christian! (gasp) Company president Dan Cathy recently reiterated his beliefs by stating his support for traditional marriage.  Based on the firestorm that has followed, you’d think Chick-fil-A was selling crack | Read More »
