Obama Blesses Educational Inequity
This kind of thing happens to me all the time. I write an article – say about Barack Obama’s latest Imperial Proclamation – to create a department to enhance education for black children – and announce that to do such would fly in the face of the equal protection clauses of the Constitution and I get called a racist. How does that work. I | Read More »
How Very Presidential!
A couple of months back, we learned that the most powerful man on the planet – Barack Obama – has a kill list. Not only does he maintain a list of unsavory terrorist types and their locations, he uses that list to plan drone attacks and, yes, blow the bad guys to smithereens. (I can’t help it. In my mind’s eye, I see an adolescent | Read More »
Rasmussen and Me
Having spent more than a few hours about the business of measuring public opinion with the folks at Montana’s Department of Tourism and Recreation Research, I’m aware that polling can give us lots of information on any given subject. Polling can also mean diddly squat. It depends upon how serious the researchers are. I trust Rasmussen. While at my morning rounds, I looked to | Read More »
The Nobama Road
Okay. I’m something of a troublemaker. My idea of a good time is to put on my NOBAMA t-shirt and hang out at the local Piggly Wiggly parking lot.

Sadly, | Read More »
Happiness Park – Trading Groceries for Votes?
This week Americans learned two interesting bits of trivia in the ongoing game of Imperial Obama Monopoly. (Not sold in any store.) We learned first of all that the United States Department of Agriculture, where the food stamp program (known also by the less stigmatic moniker, SNAP.) lives, has lately been producing and airing soap operas for Spanish-speaking television and radio. The name of | Read More »
Nailing the Black Vote – Or not
I’m not all that convinced that the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People is a useful organization. As a matter of fact, I’ve come to think of the NAACP as a breeding ground for misguided militants who might as well join the New Black Panther Party. If you’re looking to amplify racial issues, and I think the NAACP is, you might as well | Read More »
UN Arms Trade Treaty – Fast and Furious Redux?
As I read it, the new United Nations Arms Trade Treaty, which is supported by the Obama Administration, would limit the ability of Americans to buy and keep firearms. Proponents of the international treaty claim that such a treaty which would regulate trade in conventional guns would keep civilians around the world safer. (History hasn’t borne this theory out often or ever, nevertheless, the proponents | Read More »
