AC/DC’s Live at River Plate offers too much of the same and not enough new
The biggest knock against Australian rockers AC/DC is the band’s songs all sound the same. As a die-hard AC/DC fan, I say they damn well better! I’d lose what little faith I have left in mankind if I ever heard a synthesizer on any of AC/DC’s studio albums. However, the problem with AC/DC’s live albums isn’t that the songs all sound the same — it’s | Read More »
Success! I blocked out false reality for a week!
Late last Monday I vowed to ignore talk radio, news and opinion websites of any kind, as well a cable or nightly news stations. The last memory I have Campaign 2012 is of Romney’s audio recording accurately describing the Democratic base. Naturally the media couldn’t have this (bitter clingers charge apparently was acceptable in 2008) and likely did what the White House wanted and attacked | Read More »
Falling off the grid until Nov. 6? Can it be done?
As the late George Steinbrenner would say while in the throes of a New York Yankees losing streak, “Enough is enough!” The 2012 presidential election has officially worn on me to the point where: 1. Hearing Barack Obama’s snake-oily slathered voice makes me cringe; 2. Watching Mitt Romney’s empty campaign makes me click off the television in disgust; 3. I realize the mainstream media is beyond redemption | Read More »

Don’t rely on the Shy Tory! Explain yourself, Mitt!
Late last month a British writer named Adam Shaw, writing for the American Thinker, proposed a theory that Republicans Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan might be in much better shape against President Barack Obama than is reflected in polling data. He argues that an early 1990s phenomenon in the United Kingdom called “the Shy Tory” factor — in which polls overwhelmingly showed Labour (liberals) candidates | Read More »
God and Man at the DNC
Should President Barack Obama lose reelection this November – and I’m not convinced that he will – his dismal stewardship of the economy and reckless spending will be primary reasons, but I also believe two other variables will have played a part. 1. The “You didn’t build that” speech made in Roanoke, Va. Heard in its entirety and not just one brief sound bite, it | Read More »
David Chalian enters Todd Akin’s world
Rarely is it decent to revel in someone else’s self-inflicted misfortune, but it happens all the time (Todd Akin, anyone?). I am guilty of it today, Aug. 29, 2012, when journalist David Chalian’s disdain for the Republican party went viral. David Chalian up until a few hours ago was Yahoo! News’ Washington Bureau director who was covering the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla. Just a few | Read More »
If only Akin was Torricelli …
Why am I, a New Jersey resident, furious with Todd Akin? The Missouri Republican Senate candidate’s breathtaking ignorance and stupidity regarding rape and conception not only immediately imperiled GOP chances to pick up a winnable seat held by the unpopular Claire McCaskill, but gave Democrats ammunition to lob at Republicans up and down ballots nationwide, including Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan. Everyone on the planet | Read More »
What was/is Todd Akin thinking?
Really. What was Todd Akin thinking when he uttered the phrase “legitimate rape”? What was throbbing through his gray matter that made him state that women who are in the process of being raped can somehow internally prevent fertilization? I listened to Todd Akin mount an incoherent apology/defense on Sean Hannity’s radio show today and heard the nonsensical ramblings of a politician who clearly isn’t aware that his | Read More »
GOP Leader: Harry Reid is the Senate’s Jerry Sandusky
U.S. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Kentucky, said the following on the Senate floor today: “Harry Reid, the majority leader, is my friend. He’s served this honorable body with distinction ever since joining it in 1987. But I cannot overlook the phone call I received today from a very reliable source who I will not name who stated the following: Harry Reid has been molesting young boys who have | Read More »
Who’s goin’ to National Same-Sex Kiss Day?
Friday is national Same-Sex Kiss Day at Chick-fil-A! Unfortunately I won’t be attending, just as I wasn’t able to attend Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day today because there isn’t one friggin’ CFA within 30 miles of where I live in New Jersey. As it is, I’m on Weight Watchers. CFA would torpedo my Points Plus for the day in about five seconds. I am not gay, but | Read More »
