New York Times Publishes Names of People Who Died of COVID-19 on Entire Front Page

Saved themselves the embarrassment of filling the front page with stories they’d have to retract in a day or two, I guess! At the risk of being accused of “whataboutism”, I don’t recall the NYT filling the front page of their Sunday paper with the names of H1N1 victims? But it reminded [Read More]

Resistance (Weight) Training for Beginners

I thought about calling this “Resistance Training for Dummies”, but my Mama didn’t raise no dummies, and knowing my readership, yours didn’t either! But you may not have been exposed to any formal weight training, and while you’re “sheltering in place”, this could be your introduction to getting started. Resistance [Read More]

Shazam! – A Movie Review, Sort Of

Shazam! as a superhero origin story is simply magical! No, really, I mean his origin is magical…like Harry Potter’s. He’s not the strange visitor from another planet, no one gave him a lantern powered ring, and he wasn’t bitten by a radioactive anything. Billy Batson is an orphan, who wants nothing [Read More]

Ah, Earth Day…the Irony!

Monday April 22nd. was Earth Day. A day dedicated to saving the planet through energy conservation and…recycling! STOCKTON — A thick, billowy plume of black smoke visible for miles scarred an otherwise pristine blue sky over the Port of Stockton on Monday afternoon, caused by a stubborn, wind-blown fire at… a [Read More]

Gosnell – A Movie Review

Permit me, if you will, a brief aside before I begin my Gosnell movie review. As you will soon evidence for yourselves, I do not write movie reviews for living. In fact, I haven’t written one in a little over a year. I just haven’t been that excited about the [Read More]

Risk Assessment and the Modern Liberal

  Risk assessment is in the news. Most of it phony. Let me give you an example: Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, opened in 1990. In the last 28 years, approximately 84,000 students have passed through its halls. Fourteen didn’t make it. For all you statisticians out there, that’s .0001666 [Read More]

I’m All For “Common Sense” Gun Control

…now if someone could just codify “common sense”! People are very loosely and very passionate crying that we must pass “common sense” gun laws. They want them now! Anything less and you have “blood on your hands”. Fine. Let’s start with the aspect that has absolutely nothing with caliber, barrel [Read More]

All The News That Fits…Our Agenda

  Are you old enough to remember when the news and reporting was impartial? Okay, me neither. But are you old enough to remember when at least you thought the press was impartial? I point you to a story from the venerable AP: SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — About 800 “criminals” avoided immigration arrests [Read More]

A Common Sense Solution to Illegal Guns

Liberals have been clamoring for some time to have “common sense” gun laws enacted. That sounds reasonable. Then, they proceed to regale us with the need for laws that are already on the books, or impractical ideas that would never work. Never fear! I have a solution. It’s not a [Read More]

Democrats’ Schiff Into Damage Control

“This investigation is starting again, for political purposes. This is another investigation of Hillary Clinton, long after she’s no longer a presidential candidate, no longer the Secretary of State, apparently there’s more interest in what happened seven years ago with Secretary Clinton than there is in the (phony Trump) investigation.

Four States, Multiple Guns, One Massacre

Several times I have heard the fact bandied about, that the Las Vegas shooter purchased guns in four states. Most recently, one talking head lamented the fact that there was not some sort of network where these different states could communicate with each other to identify these sorts of purchases.

A Modest Proposal Regarding Antifa*

*with apologies to Jonathan Swift We all know that the vicious hooligans who call themselves “Antifa”, aside from having virtually no fashion style, or in all truth, no discernible intellectual ability, tend to dress in all black: black hoodie, mask, sunglasses, black slacks, black hearts…which makes it somewhat difficult to [Read More]

What Happened: The Delusional Handmaid’s Tale

Excerpts from Hillary’s latest bodice ripping, romance fantasy, “What Happened“: “This is not OK, I thought. It was the second presidential debate, and Donald Trump was looming behind me. Two days before, the world heard him brag about groping women. Now we were on a small stage and no matter [Read More]
